I think it’s high time that we look at the movie news that’s got me all excited these days. Here are five movie tidbits that caught my attention recently.
1. Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer
This is the third trailer to come out for the movie, and I’m still excited. I liked the first one a lot and am looking forward to see what Joss Whedon does with this one (his supposed last).
2. Diablo Cody writing live-action Barbie script
This is one I’m sort of watching cautiously because I was stoked when Cody was working on a Sweet Valley High movie, but that ended up going nowhere (BRING IT BACK). At any rate, there’s no way this won’t be wholly bizarre, but I kind of don’t care. I sat through Life Size, and I’ll sit through this one if it ever actually gets made. (Deadline)
3. Love & Mercy Trailer
It’s about Bryan Wilson of the Beach Boys, which doesn’t super interest me, but it does star Paul Dano, who I really love. So I am torn. I will probably watch this one, but it will be at home and it will sit in my queue for a long time before I finally get to it.
4. Alex of Venice Trailer
Directed by Chris Messina and starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, this is my kryptonite. Derek Luke has a supporting role, which is also excellent. It’s about a workaholic mother whose husband asks for a break from their marriage. Can’t wait. Don’t care.
5. Welcome to Me Trailer
Kristen Wiig stars as a woman with BPD who stops taking her meds and wins the lottery. It looks like it’s going to be weird and interesting and if it’s well done, I will be very happy. If it’s not, I will be wholly unsurprised.
