Monday Mini-Rushes – The A-Team, Abraham Lincoln, John Carter And More

The A-Team have been Seussified by the same chap who set about Batman last week.

A UK housewife is on the warpath over Americanisms in new Winnie the Pooh books, and other Disney fare published in Britain.

A skipping rope is called by its American name “jump rope” and a handkerchief is spelt hankerchief and moustache spelt mustache.

Mrs Weeks said: “AA Milne would never have written the word ‘gotten’, so why has it been put in there?

“There are so many things – they talk about them playing chequers, instead of chess or draughts.” [Telegraph]

Here’s a light making-of for Duncan Jones’ mini-modeltastic Virgin Money ad. [Man Made Movies]

Joe Swanberg has uploaded his short-ish film (just under an hour), Marriage Material to Vimeo and here it is, to watch for free. I did and… erm… it’s very Swanberg.

io9 have four scenes from Avatar: The Legend of Korra, the Last Airbender sequel series.

There’s some more footage from John Carter in this latest TV spot.

Gad Elmaleh and Gabriel Byrne have been cast in Capital, Costa Gavras’ next. Natacha Regnier, Hyppolyte Girardot, Lyia Kebede and Bernard Lecop also all have roles in this “scathing look at international finance”. If Gavras’ form is anything to go by, this deserves your full attention.[Variety]

This featurette goes behind the scenes of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. It’s not, I was disappointed to learn a documentary expose.
