Welcome to the latest edition of BC Toy Spotting! We are in and out of stores pretty much every day, and we figure (ha!) why not show all of our fellow collectors what we are coming across on pegs and shelves. As collectors, we know that staying on top of what is in stores can […]
I want these words to make things right, but isn’t it the wrongs that make the words come to life? I mean, who does he think he is? Cause if that’s the worst you got, better put your fingers back to the key. Cause it’s one night and one more time, but thanks for the […]
Justin Timberlake really is a fabulous performer, don’t get me wrong. While I personally am not someone who has purchased his music or gone out of my way to listen to his work, I have appreciated his performances and talent the times I’ve seen/experienced his material. The Super Bowl Halftime Show is one of the […]
Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show has added a superstar performer to its lineup: His Royal Badass himself, The Purple One, Prince! But Bleeding Cool, you say: Prince is dead. We know. It still depresses us two years later. But nowadays, nobody really stays dead for long. It’s as true in comic books as it is […]
Just because the National Football League (NFL) is in the middle playoffs doesn’t mean all the action’s taking place on the field. NBC has picked up another traveler on the road to Super Bowl LII, with multi-platinum, multi-award-winning singer/songwriter Pink (P!nk) tapped to perform The Star-Spangled Banner live before kickoff at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis […]
During the DreamWorks Animation presentation at Comic-Con International: San Diego on Thursday, Trolls voice star and executive music producer Justin Timberlake said the film will lead to an “epidemic of happiness.” He, along with co-star Anna Kendrick and directors Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn, offered a taste of the animation studio’s latest animated offering, based on […]
This must be a good example of how funny this movie really is.
This is easily my most anticipated movie soundtrack of the year, and a lot of people must be in the same boat because the people behind Inside Llewyn Davis have put the whole thing up to stream for free a week before its release, via NPR. I’m about halfway into it and it’s just fantastic, […]
Some thoughts on two new, highly impressive films - the Coen Brothers' tale of a folk singer and Frederick Wiseman's fascinating documentary about the University of Berkeley,
Maybe Mrs. C's idea of spending Christmas with the family in the US is actually a very good one...
Inside Llewyn Davis, the next Coen Bros. film, is to screen “for one night only” ahead of the Grammys. And then? Well, Joel Coen has told USA Today that the film may get a screening at Cannes. That should be more than enough to net the picture a US distributor. Coen said that the film […]
Swing batter batter swing?
News of this movie had me riveted from the first announcement and luckily, despite having no studio backing and being completely independently funded, it's having a pretty quick turnaround with filming already underway in Manhattan.
The next film from the Coen Bros. is to be Inside Llewyn Davies, a story set amidst the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich village. I was expecting a comedy, maybe a drama with moments of comedy,* but apparently, the film will be packing some “ominous twists”. This is according to Showbiz 411, in their story […]
Forthcoming action sci-fi In Time was written and directed by the guy who wrote The Truman Show, it stars Cillian Murphy in a villain role and it’s set in a future where time quite literally equals money, so the rich can live forever and the poor rarely live beyond the age of 25. There’s three […]
I described this to you earlier. Now you can watch it for yourself and complain about my lapses of memory.
We have just seen an extended trailer for In Time, Andrew Niccol’s sci-fi chase thriller with Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake. The most notable things about the scenes shown is how non-futuristic the production design feels. Everything looks pretty much as though it does today, just run through the digital cinematography of Roger Deakins. The […]
Two official images from In Time, formerly Now, formerly I’m.Mortal, have been released and they each show Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake running. Each picture features the same “scaredy running face” acting, though Seyfried is louder in one, Timberlake is louder in the other. I guess that makes them a well suited pair, though I […]
If you didn’t read them, then I wouldn’t write them, but here’s another story that, basically, lists a series of actors who have been sent scripts – or at least who have agents that have been sent scripts. This time out, the script in question is Steve Kloves‘ new attempt to adapt Katsuhiro Otomo‘s Akira. According […]
Sony have launched their promotions for Jake Kasdan’s Bad Teacher, a very clearly R-rated comedy from the wordprocessors of Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, writers of The Office and Ghostbusters 3. The first PR strike is the website Are You a Bad Teacher? which, at the moment, contains very little indeed; the second is a […]
