I’ve been seeing the advertisements for this flick on the tops of cabs around the city and could tell Wes Anderson had to be involved somehow. While I’m not crazy about Charlie Sheen, the selections of Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman always spark my interest. A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III is the latest film directed by Roman Coppolla. While more famous for other reasons, Roman’s latest efforts have been co-writing Moonrise Kingdom and The Darjeeling Limited along with Wes. He worked with Schwartzman previously on the odd sci-fi spoof CQ, which the DVD cover always reminded me of an old-school porn back in my BBV days. The movie centers around dreams, so it may get off track at times I’ll suspect. It’s available to rent same day as theaters on Comcast. I’m spending the $9.99 plus tax tonight.

Primer was an original piece of movie making so I am hoping that writer-director Shane Curruth delivers with his follow-up, Upstream Color. Much like his debut, the sophomore project stars Curruth along with a cast of mostly unknown actors. The premise sounds pretty wild. I hope it doesn’t get too National Geographic in the same way Tree Of Life ruined itself. That movie was unwatchable. I don’t think we have to worry about that being the case with Upstream Color. Check out the official trailer and catch it in theaters starting April 5th.
I know this hit the web a few weeks ago, but I finally got around to checking out the official trailer for Django Unchained, the upcoming film from Quentin Tarantino. M. shouldn’t get too bent out of shape that Quentin stole his idea about making a movie about slave times, because his idea sounded much more epic than Django. With that said, getting Leo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx to star in this, along with Inglourious Basterds show-stealer Christoph Waltz, is where Tarantino wins the battle. In addition to this star-studded cast, we found out today that Rick Ross will be featured on the soundtrack. That’s how you capture the urban market. This gem hits theaters Christmas Day.
Here’s Rozay’s track for the film:
Lady Gaga once again paired up with famed photographer Terry Richardson for Cake. According to Gaga’s recent tweet, it’s a film that the two completed. From the looks of this trailer, it’s the pop star in minimal clothes dancing around and checking her ass out in a mirror. What a pair these two freaks make.
The Comedy is available now On Demand in the Same Day As Theaters section. Tim Heidecker stars as the well-to-do hipster main star who says off the wall shit and just does basically whatever he wants. It makes for many awkward moments and sick jokes, just like you expect from Heidecker. The Comedy also stars James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem and Wareheim of Awesome Show. Lots of chubby fat Tim in the nude, completely unnecessarily. But funny nonetheless. Rent it now or wait to see if it comes to the Ritz.
It was announced today that Disney has purchased Lucasfilms for over $4billion. A nice pay day for George Lucas who is already gettin’ it from that Indiana Jones Blu-Ray boxset that is going for a grip. Disney said that they will kick-off a new trilogy that will follow where Return Of The Jedi left off. With Star Wars originally set to be an extended series beyond the original three, I guess some die-hards may be psyched about this news, but I think most know it’s just a money-making scheme. Regardless, we’ll all be checking it out come 2015.
The Antlers get their total nature boy on for these new visuals. They put out a video for the track “Drift Dive” from their Undersea EP. The near five-minute clip works as a music video, but I didn’t like it much when Terrence Malick threw it in the middle of Tree Of Life. National Geographic type shit in the midst of a drama? Ruined it for me. Enjoyable enough song here though.
Visuals are already coming out for soundtracks to Quinton Tarantino’s new flick The Man With Iron Fist. As you can from this weeks posts we here at the corporate New Jawn offices are very excited for this film. Tarantino on the cine, Rza on the kung fu/hip hop score and my main nigg Russell Crowe on the schtick. I kinda wish Russell Brand was involved somehow, maybe food catering behind the scenes.
Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood did all of the original music in the new P.T. Anderson flick The Master. The film opened today everywhere and is receiving outstanding reviews, including praise of both Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix for their performances. Gotta see this one. Stream a track off Greenwood’s latest creation and download the full soundtrack below.
Paul Thomas Anderson returns next week with a new film The Master. P.T. never disappoints and from the trailer, it looks like it will be another gem to add to his already stellar resume. The Master stars frequent collaborator Phillip Seymour Hoffman as a man who finds a religous organization and Joaquin Phoenix as his right-hand man. The film opens next Friday and stars Amy Adams and Laura Dern in supporting roles. You can expect some intense drama, just like every other P.T. flick. Magnolia is still his finest flick.
Heading to see this shortly. Lawless hits theaters this week and of course it stars the guy who is in just about everything 2012 has to offer: Tom Hardy. It has a westrn vibe, but doesn’t look like the cliche or typical old school western. I expect a ton of people getting shot in the face and shit since I’ve been told Hardy is “such a badass”. It also features former NJOTW Jessica Chastain and Shia LaBouf, along with all-stars Gary Oldman and Guy Pearce. LaBouf recently was crying to the press about how he would give back all of his Transformers money for credibilty in the industry. Here’s an idea. Stop playing the tortured artist and showing your dingus in Sigur Ros videos and pick quality flicks, instead of garbage sequels. You never heard Leo cry about all that Titanic money. He just made good movie after good movie from that point on. There was no way he was signing on to a Titanic sequel… Get your act together LaBouf.
Today marks the 19th anniversary of the death of GG Allin. The biggest scumfuc the world ever knew would have been 55 years old and still running around naked, eating his own shit. Something still facinating about that type of behavior all these years after his death. Enjoy Hated, the Todd Phillips directed documentary about the last true punk rocker to ever live.
You can judge for yourself if this is something you want to throw away some hard earned dollars on. Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa have taken over the old Redman and Method Man roles as the highest niggas in the game. How High was set on a college campus, but Snoop in high school? That’s just retarded. Check out the official trailer for Mac & Devin Go To High School.
I more so wanted to post this because of the dope ad/poster used for The Dark Knight Rises presale for the midnight showing at the Tuttleman IMAX at the Franklin Institute. That theater is rough on the neck, but if it’s the only place local showing TDKR in IMAX, I’ll suffer thru it. Hopefully I can make a trip to Cherry Hill or K.O.P. with the other superfans though. Presale tickets are on sale now for the July 20th showing at midnight. I’m sure it will sell out, but not sure if it will 5-6 weeks in advance.
It’s been five years since Wes Anderson last released an original film. While 2009′s Fantastic Mr. Fox was a good adaptation of the Roald Dahl children’s classic, I don’t consider it a real part of Anderson’s collection. The Darjeeling Limited was a disappointment on my end, so when I heard about Moonrise Kingdom, I immediately hoped for a return to form for my favorite director. From the looks of this newly released trailer, Wes is back. I’ve seen these camera shots and the dialogue has the same dry humor that he’s used in all of his classics. Some people may read that and think that is a negative statement, but it’s just the opposite. Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou are probably three of my top five favorite films of all time, so if even the smallest piece of their greatness can be seen in Moonrise Kingdom, I’m in. Watch the trailer for yourself.
Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap is an upcoming documentary put together by Ice-T. You know. The former “Cop Killer” singer turned TV detective. It features some of the biggest names in hip hop speaking about their craft and offering up some bars for the film. So far, clips of two of the most notable MC’s in the game have found their way on to the web. Check out Eminem and Nas deliver some rhymes for the Ice-T doc, as well as the official trailer for Something From Nothing.
NBA TV is premiering a documentary about The Dream Team that won the gold during the 1992 Olymplics in Barcelona. The 20th anniversary of assembling some of the greatest basketball players to ever play the game should make for an entertaining flick. It is going to include interviews with the players and coaches, as well as footage of scrimmage games, practices, and the U.S.A. boys bringing home the gold on the court. The Dream Team premieres on NBA TV on June 13th at 9pm. Set the DVR’s Radiohead fans… Check out the final trailer for The Dream Team.
