News that Caught my Eye
So, during post-production of Justice League, Zack Snyder’s daughter committed suicide. He walked away from the project and got replaced by Joss Whedon who shot a bunch of stuff and finished the film. By all accounts, the finished cut is quite different from the rough cut Snyder was working from when he left the project. Since Justice League is such a general disappointment to just about everyone, clamors for the Snyder Cut have arisen since the movie’s original release.
I like Snyder’s DC movies more than most, but I’ve never quite caught the fever for this. I cannot imagine his cut being some great hidden gem. I can imagine it being longer and providing some of its new characters more time to breathe, which would improve the film, but I’m unconvinced that it would be great.
Still, I’m interested in seeing it. Hopefully it’ll see the light of day some day.
Quentin Tarantino is Planning To Write a Book, Develop a Play, and a TV Series Before Directing His 10th Film
This warms my heart. I’d rather that Tarantino actually make a 10th movie than do any of these things, but this means that Tarantino is keeping himself creatively fresh. He’s not boxing himself in. I know that at least one of his most recent movies started out as a novel (off the top of my head, I think that was The Hateful Eight). So, anything to keep that man going creatively. And, maybe he’ll go past movie 10.
Paul Thomas Anderson Has a New Film in the Works, and It Will Reportedly Take Us Back to ’70s California
Of the same generation as Tarantino, Anderson is a cool to the touch and masterful filmmaker. Any news of him taking on a new project is good news.
This is so stupid.
Trailers that caught my eye:
Nothing. There’s been stuff, but nothing I found that interesting. The Sonic stuff is just too dumb to think about. So, a throwback!
The original Alien trailer! Because, why not?
