Yesterday we reported that Robert Downey Jr. would be voicing the monocled legume Mr. Peanut in a new commercial for Planters. Today we have that very commercial. Yesterday we reported that Robert Downey Jr. would be voicing the monocled legume Mr. Peanut in a new commercial for Planters. Today we have that very commercial. It appears it's taking its stylistic cues from Wes Anderson's The Fantastic Mr. Fox, with Downey filling in for Clooney. I'm also not certain why a peanut would remain friends with a nutcracker, especially if said nutcracker tried to murder him at his last get together, but I guess some are more forgiving than others. The person who cracked my skull open many moons ago I no longer consider an acquaintance. (ThePlaylist)
Anderson on overdrive. A few weeks ago, the Internet went berserk over SNL's limp attempt to ape Wes Anderson's filmmaking style from the early 2000's for the fake horror movie trailer The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders. If that got your clicks, then you're going to LOVE THIS. So Wes Anderson-y.
Meet the voices in your head. Pixar has moved on from the secret lives of toys and anthropomorphic vehicles to take on the little voices in our head. In Inside Out, Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Mindy Kaling, Phyllis Smith, and Lewis Black star as the emotions of a young girl - Joy, Fear, Disgust, Sadness, and Anger. The film appears to focus on the crisis that occurs when Joy and Sadness go on a mission to recover her mind's core memories, leaving Fear, Disgust, and Anger to take the wheel. This movie may as well take place inside Charlie Sheen.
The boys are back! Before Entourage hits the big screen, relive the TV show that started it all - and brought bro culture to the mainstream. Lloyd!
Guns in high school. This one shouldn't be a tough sell. Fanboys director Kyle Newman brings us Barely Lethal, a movie about a group of orphan girls are turned into a squad of elite killers by Samuel L. Jackson, who insists they have no attachments. But when Assassin #83 yearns for a normal teenage life, she escapes the compound and hides out at a high school. There she navigates cliques, crushes, and the international terrorists that want to see her die slowly. The film doesn't have a US release date yet, probably due to the fact that it promotes gun violence in high school. And I can see that point. But, I also see Samuel L. Jackson wearing this hilarious disguise and I am SOLD.
That's entertainment. Lionsgate premiered the long trailer for The Hunger Games this morning. It's got everything you'd expect. Attractive but terrified teens, the makings of a love triangle, and outlandish facial hair. Seriously, Wes Bentley. What are you thinking? Facial hair like that would even get you beat up in Williamsburg. It does look like an impressive effort. We aren't shown any kid-on-kid violence in this preview, but we are privy to the training sessions where children are taught the right way to decapitate mannequins. It's all about your follow-through.
I smell Oscar! Wait, that's probably just a water based lubricant baking into someone's skin under hot lights. I smell Oscar! Wait, that's probably just a water based lubricant baking into someone's skin under hot lights. Either way, The King's Piece, the pornographic version of this year's best picture winner The King's Speech, is every bit as stodgy and proper as the original. This is based solely on the trailer, as I'm sure the actual, hardcore sex is much less austere than the film it was based on. However, I will admit to being genuinely impressed by the British accents on display from the actors and actresses. They put mid-level sketch comedy groups and college theater departments to shame, and the sets look great too. Considering that the actual film was shot on a set previously inhabited by a gay porn film, it was only a matter of time before the cycle was complete, and porn film and Oscar winner blended together in a beautiful smoothie of high and (very) low art. The King's Piece concerns a porn star who can't get it up, as opposed to a public speaker who can't not stutter (the parallels are astonishing), and thus needs therapy. Enjoy this safe for work trailer and believe in the human condition once again! (Film Drunk)
Jenna Fischer stars as a newly single mom, whose lousy ex-husband Chris O'Donnell dies and goes to Bat Heaven. I think the handwritten lettering they use in all trailers for indie movies must be called "MandatoryQuirkyTitle Font" or something. Once you see that title style, you know you've got to unfold your lawn chair and watch the quirk parade. In the trailer above for A Little Help, Jenna Fischer stars as a newly single mom, whose lousy ex-husband Chris O'Donnell dies and goes to Bat Heaven. Now she's got to raise an eccentric kid all by herself, and there's a pretty funny 9/11 subplot. I realize that might sound awful, especially the way I phrased it, but it works in the trailer. She also falls in love with her ex-high school sweetheart, who's also her sister's husband, which I'm sure won't complicate matters at all. Personally, I like Jenna Fischer and could stand to see more of her, in non-Pam Halpert roles. Will this Michael J. Weithorn (King of Queens) directed fil break her out as a movie star? I don't think so, though I'd definitely buy a ticket if she re-wears her Blades of Glory attire in the movie. That's-a nice-a outfit.
