Anomalisa

A video was released recently offering a small making of peek at the upcoming stop-motion drama Anomalisa, which is written by Oscar-winning Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Adaptation, and Being John Malkovich writer Charlie Kaufman, and co-directed by Kaufman and Duke Johnson, who’s known for his stop-motion TV work directing an episode of Moral Orel, the stop-motion episode of Community, and multiple episodes of Mary Shelley’s Frankenhole.

The movie follows an author on a business trip who meets a woman who might just be the escape from his increasingly boring life he’s been looking for. Hopefully the video below is just a tease of a much, much longer making of featurette we’ll get to see on the movie’s Blu-ray release.

Poster For Tom Hardy’s ‘Legend’ Brilliantly Makes The Best Of Bad Review

Tom Hardy in Legend

Even the best movies usually end up with a few bad reviews, that’s just the way it is. Legend, a movie starring Tom Hardy that released recently in the UK and releases soon here in the States, may not be one of the aforementioned “best” movies. But it is getting generally favorable reviews early on.

Of course some reviews of the movie aren’t too fond of the film. One such critiquing came from The Guardian, who gave Legend only two stars out of a possible five stars. Instead of just being bummed out by the poor review, the folks behind marketing the movie decided to twist the negative into a positive in a decidedly devious way on a new poster that even the man who wrote the review had to tip his hat to.

You can see the poster below.

London Boulevard

London Boulevard
DIRECTED BY: William Monahan
WRITTEN BY: William Monahan
STARRING: Colin Farrell, Keira Knightley, Ray Winstone, Anna Friel, David Thewlis, Ben Chaplin, Stephen Graham, Eddie Marsan
IFC Films
RELEASE DATE: October 5, 2011 (on demand); November 11, 2011 (limited theatrical release)

Writer William Monahan has made quite a name for himself as a screenwriter, crafting the scripts for films such as Kingdom of Heaven, Body of Lies, Edge of Darkness, and The Departed, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. Now Monahan is stepping behind the camera for his directorial debut, London Boulevard (which he also wrote), but can he find the same kind of success as the man in charge?

The movie follows Mitchel (Colin Farrell), a very dangerous man who’s just getting out of prison. As is the case with most who come out of prison, he’s now facing two paths: one leading right back to his old life, while the other leads to a fresh start. Mitch tries to go legit and wants nothing to do with the life of crime he once knew, but unfortunately for him that’s a difficult feat to accomplish when some of the people closest to you are trying to pull you back in.

Mr. Nice
Blu-ray | DVD
Directed by Bernard Rose
Starring Rhys Ifans, Chloe Sevigny, Crispin Glover, David Thewlis
MPI Home Video
Release Date: October 11, 2011

Some lives are just too entertaining to not bring to the big screen. And Howard Marks lived one of those very lives.

Better known as his alias, and subsequent title of this recently released Bernard Rose film, Mr. Nice, Marks was both a drug dealer and ultimately a spy for the British government. Toss in some relationships with various women and even an IRA member, and you have a life that is more than worthy of a big screen adaptation. Drugs, women, espionage, what’s not to like?

Mr. Nice, that’s what.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 Blu-rayHarry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 1
Blu-ray Combo | DVD | On Demand
Directed by David Yates
Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint
Warner Home Video
Release date: April 15, 2011

The tale of the wizard Harry Potter and his struggle against the evil Lord Voldemort has nearly reached its end in Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 1, the first of a two-part finale for the film franchise. The Harry Potter movies have come a long way in the 10 years since the first offering, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, when Harry was just a little boy and Voldemort was merely a named to be feared and never spoken. As Harry and his loyal friends grew older, the franchise got darker, with this latest one being the darkest and most frightening one of all.

Voldemort’s (Ralph Fiennes) power has grown strong and, as always, his one focus in life is to kill Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), the boy who lived, the Chosen One, the one destined to bring about his downfall. Thanks to his friends and powerful allies, Harry has managed to either stay hidden from the dark lord or escape his clutches whenever they’ve battled. But unlike the previous installments, in The Deathly Hallows: Part 1, the wizard world itself has grown dark, too. Voldemort’s Death Eaters and other minions and loyal subjects have taken over the government with a mission to rule over the Muggle — non-magical — world and subjugate all Muggles and Muggle-born wizards and witches. No one is safe under this regime, so Harry and his friends Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) are forced to go underground on their own while searching for the hidden Horcruxes, the magical artifacts that house pieces of Voldemort’s soul that the trio must figure out how to destroy.
