You think football's important? Ha! Lookie here...

7. HBO Released a Righteous Photo of Al Pacino and Helen Mirren.


And the Second Teaser Trailer for "Phil Spector."

Even though it's just voiceover, that trailer leaves me believing there is not a better actor to play Spector. "Phil Spector" is directed by the brilliant David Mamet (The Unrtouchables, Glengarry Glen Ross, Wag the Dog) and co-stars Helen Mirren as Spector's lawyer, and Jeffrey Tambor. It airs on HBO March 24th.

6. A "Breaking Bad" Fan Created Gorgeous 3D Walter White Models for a Non-Existent Video Game.







Granted, there are no plans for a video game, but character modeler Frank Tzeng makes us wish there were.

5. "Sesame Street" Presented "Upside Downton Abbey."

My absolute favorite thing this week.

And, "Sketchy" Presented "Downton Arby's."

Okay, WAIT! This is my absolute favorite thing this week.

4. "Revenge" Star Emily VanCamp Joined Captain America: The Winter Soldier.


VanCamp has reportedly beat out Emilia Clarke, Alison Brie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Imogen Poots for the coveted role of ex S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and Captain America's love interest, Sharon Carter. It's nice to see her break out of television and finally get her major film wings. Captain America: The Winter Soldier also stars Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Toby Jones and Cobie Smulders; filming begins this April.

3. An Image from Richard Curtis' About Time Failed to Ease the Delay News.


The Love Actually and Pirate Radio director certainly bides his time between films, and this week came the news his highly anticipated time traveling romantic comedy was being bumped from its May 10th release to November 8th. About Time stars Domhnall Gleeson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 & 2, Anna Karenina, Never Let Me Go) as a young man who discovers he can time travel, accidentally erases his love life, and must go back to meet his girl (Rachel McAdams) to woo her all over again. The film also stars Tom Hollander, Vanessa Kirby and Bill Nighy, as Gleeson's father.


2. New Welcome to the Punch Photos Continued to Tantalize.






James McAvoy stars as a London detective with a last chance to catch his nemesis--a career criminal (Mark Strong), forced to come out of hiding to help his son. Welcome to the Punch is directed by Eran Creevy (Shifty) and also stars David Morrissey, Andrea Riseborough and Peter Mullan. UK Release date: March 15, 2013.

1. A New International Trailer for Neil Jordan's Byzantium Dropped.

I know, I know, we're all done with the vampire thing--but with Saoirse Ronan, Gemma Arterton and Jonny Lee Miller (and Tom Hollander and Caleb Landry Jones), can we really ignore this? Jordan's twist has the mother-daughter team of Arterton and Ronan traveling together and quenching their bloodthirst for over two hundred years, when they take up residence at a seaside resort town. Instead of using fangs, these ladies bleed their victims with a sharp talon. Though reviews after its Toronto Film Festival premiere were mixed, the trailer is enticing. UK Release date: May 3, 2013.

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) wonders how many chubby-winged chickens met their ends for today's festivities. Mmm...buffalo wings.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Patty O'Green

    The poor Ethel from Downton Arby's had me giggling.

  • E-Money

    Won't this be Rachel McAdams second time traveling love story? Aren't you only allowed one of those per career? Also why doesn't Brendan Gleeson just play Domhall Gleeson's father? So many questions.

  • I liked the part of the Sesame Street bit where they repeated "mum" a billion-ty times. Oh, wait, no, no I didn't, because just like this here post it was neither witty nor funny nor original nor funny. Just disappointing.

  • blacksred

    James McAvoy gives me girl wood

  • sarah_jwh

    Upside Downton Abbey is as good as Birdwalk Empire (also sesame street)

  • googergieger

    Why is the header pic Mitt Romney and his wife being uncomfortable? Or you know, acting normal?

  • Mrs. Julien

    I love that the Dowager Muppet costume actually looks like one that Maggie Smith wore.

  • RudeMorgue

    Walter White = Gordon Freeman.

    Yes, I could accept that.

  • Mitchell Hundred

    Blue Mesa Research Facility.

  • Love it!

  • F'mal DeHyde

    So many good things you found for us!

  • Zirza

    I was sold on Welcome To The Punch a while ago but now that I know Peter Mullan is in it too? AWESOME.

  • Irina

    James McAvoy and Mark Strong in the same movie? Oh, my lions.

  • Kballs

    Lions were definitely the big winners last week in 'Jibaland.

  • Kala

    This might sound odd, but since Mark Strong has rocked the bald look, my attraction to him has increased ten-fold.

    What can I say? I have a type.

  • Mrs. Julien

    He's just plain smokin'! It must be such a relief when one takes the plunge and shaves one's head and it looks good.

  • $27019454

    I think certain men transcend. Mark Strong transcends a lot of things.

  • $27019454

    Yes. So many lions. I'd be lion if I said I was gonna stay away from this movie.
    Seriously. NyQuil needs to be reclassified by the FDA.

  • Zirza

    Cut her some slack. Horny typing is twice as hard as drunk typing.

  • $27019454

    I meant no disrespect. I think you mistake my meaning. I am so on board! My lions are also very on board. Lions...roar!

  • Mrs. Julien

    Who needs McAvoy?
