Only Swinton and Hiddleston Left Alive; Firth and Winslet Pair Up

Important Daylight Saving Stuff!

5. A Couple of Physicists Broke Down the Doctor’s Time Travel for Experts and Laypersons.

Benjamin K. Tippett and David Tsang discuss our favorite Time Lord’s wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff—in terms we can all understand, and that’s pretty gosh-darned cool. Choose your own adventure: Technobabble or Plain English.

4. Sharlto Copley Found Himself in a Rather Unsettling Situation.

Count me among those thrilled to see more Copely since District 9, and each time he gives something so different (Elysium, Europa Report), I can’t wait to see what’s next (Oldboy, Maleficent, Chappie). But first, there’s Gonzalo L√≥pez-Gallego’s Open Grave, wherein Copely’s John finds himself alive in a pit of dead bodies. He’s rescued by a group of strangers who—like John—have lost their memories…distrust and suspicion quickly spread. Co-starring Joseph Morgan, Thomas Kretschmann and Max Wrottesley, Open Grave awaits you January 3, 2013.

3. We Got a Better Look at the Violence and Ass-Kicking in this Charlie Countryman Red Band Trailer.

And guess which part I want to watch over and over? That’s right, Mads mothereffin’ Mikkelsen kicking Shia LaBeouf’s scrawny ass.

I’ve no idea what the hell is going on, but Mads plays a “violent and mentally unstable crime boss”—and John Hurt narrates—what more do we need to know? Charlie Countryman also stars Evan Rachel Wood, Rupert Grint, Melissa Leo and Vincent D’Onofrio; it hits theaters November 15th.

2. Colin Firth and Kate Winslet Were Finally Led to the Same Script.


The gorgeous pair may soon play husband and wife, after having read Scott Burns’ script based on the life of Donald Crowhurst, an amateur boater who entered a round-the-world racing competition, encountered unsurmountable problems, and instead of facing the humiliation of quitting, attempted to deceive everyone by reporting false positions—pretending to finish the race. Winslet would play Crowhurst’s wife, Clare, left on her own with four children and the family finances all tied up in the race.

1. Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive Trippy Trailer May Bring Vampires Back.

So speaking of John Hurt and eclectic casts, have a look before you declare the whole vampire scene dead. Firstly, Tilda (excuse me while I mothereffin’ again) mothereffin Swinton and Tom Hiddleston? If that’s not enough to sell you, how about John Hurt, Mia Wasikowska, Anton Yelchin and Jeffrey Wright? Jarmusch wrote yet another original script, and heck—you might as well watch the trailer now. Only Lovers Left Alive was Palme d’Or nominated at Cannes this year and it recently showed at the New York Film Festival, but we don’t have a general release date yet.

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) feels ever so refreshed after that extra hour of…wait, where’d it go?

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Ron Wells

    OK, that PS4 ad with "Perfect Day" was in REALLY bad taste a week after Lou Reed died.

  • Judging by that header picture, Tilda Swinton is the new lead singer for Flock of Seagulls.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I think that's what my hair stylist keeps wanting to do to me. She keeps talking about shaving parts of my head. I haven't let her yet. Maybe before I take a Swintonesque world tour I will.

  • kirbyjay

    The Swinton would never be in a Flock. She is a Lone Seagull at best.

  • e jerry powell

    Will anyone be surprised if Winslet convinces Firth to leave Livia?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Yes. I trust Firth as a gentleman.

  • John G.

    Is this the first Jarmusch in like 10 years? What's he been up to?

  • Boothy K

    The Donald Crowhurst story is fascinating and told brilliantly in the doc "Deep Water". Looking forward to this adaptation of the story. Also: Yay SWINTON!

  • John W

    Speaking of vampire movies, I just watched Kiss of The Damned. It was pretty good.

  • Pretty Hate Machine

    I've been asking myself the question repeatedly, in what messed up universe would anyone with a quarter of a brain choose Shitty La Beef over Mads? My suspension of disbelief will have to work time and a half to make me believe Evan Rachel's character could walk away from those cheekbones. Granted, I have no Idea what Mad's character does to hers; it's the principle of the Mikkelsen.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Between this trailer and apparently the speedo Mads will be wearing in the new Hannibal season, I'm all aflutter. Madsly.

  • lonolove

    Tell me everything you know about the new Hannibal season! AHHH!

  • Pants-are-a-must

    There isn't a lot to know at the moment, but if you simply read Bryan Fuller's twitter, you'll discover a thing or two.

  • Kala

    Vampires bore me to death, but Dear God, that trailer.

    Hiddy. Tilda. Gimme.

  • sanity fair

    Twilight aside, I generally don't mind angst-ridden vampires, so I'm gonna all up in that as soon as possible!

    "All up in that" figuratively, of course. Not that I'd say no to being all up in Hiddleston and SWINTON sandwich literally.

  • Leelee

    I never realised until now just HOW MUCH I needed to see Tom Hiddleston and SWINTON play bed-headed avant garde vampire lovers.*

    *(that is, lovers who are vampires, as opposed to the two of them sitting in a room reading Twilight. Although I might probably watch that film too.)

  • Jim

    I was hoping for a remake of 83's The Hunger. Hiddleston in the Bowie role, Swinton as Deneuve - but who to play Susan Sarandon?

  • lowercase_ryan

    Mads is such a boss when he's playing a boss. Case in point: Casino Royale

  • sanity fair

    I am quite perturbed that LaBeef is in a movie that I actually WANT to see.
    My brain cannot manage to fully wrap itself around this idea.

    In unrelated news, you could see a news story about a woman in Indiana whose brain spontaneously combusted, killing her almost instantly.

  • lonolove

    I used to post under the name Sanity Fair! ...Now I must kill you.
    (Alternatively-DID WE JUST BECOME BEST FRIENDS?!) I even call him LaBeef. I think you are the left part of my brain, run away and posting on the internet while I preoccupy myself with wine.

  • sanity fair

    I'll vote for best friends since I don't really want to be killed just as my life is finally starting to come together.

    I've been using the handle for a few years now elsewhere. Not sure how left brain I am, since I intend to open a bottle of wine here in a few with my dinner...

  • lonolove

    Glad to hear one of us has our shit together. You have filled me with optimism though, at the idea that whatever ungodly things I have posted as Sanity Fair might now be lumped into your collected works. Still, long distance high five over (what I assume is) our shared, nerdly Buffylove.

  • sanity fair

    In the midst of my annual "Halloweentime" Buffy marathon as we speak....

    And as long as it wasn't too cruel or racist/sexist/whatever-else-ist, I'm OK with taking the blame, as it were. :-)

  • Ryan Ambrose

    The prospect of The Mads beating the crap out of LaBeef is too enticing to pass up.

    Also, that trailer was actually pretty damn good, might be the "Trainspotting-esque" editing vibe.

  • sanity fair

    Don't get me wrong--that's a beautiful notion. Hell, the best part of Lawless (aside from the beauty that is Tom Hardy and Jessica Chastain) was seeing LaBeef get his ass kicked. However, I was able to grasp wanting to watch the movie by forgetting that he was even in it.

    For some reason, my brain is refusing to that blocking for me now. I want to see that movie, but LaBeefwithextrapinkmatter is on the screen and I do not like those two divergent things together. It hurts.

  • The Replicant Brooke

    I want to be absorbed by Tilda Swinton.

  • e jerry powell

    Isn't that "assimilated?"

  • emmalita

    Jim Jarmusch could direct a rom-com with Rainbow Killer and Gerard Butler and I would watch it. Ummmm, this looks way better. I'm looking forward to it.

  • Does anybody know Tom Hiddleston's real hair color?

  • aduspro

    Blond. In Gene Wilder curls.

  • llp

    I am willing to check that out, in term of carpets, drapes, etc.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Make sure you wear a lab coat so it's science.

  • llp

    Doctor is definitely on the list, don't worry.
