Winter-Swinton-Batman-War Is Coming: Five Things You May Not Have Heard About This Week
Stuff of Import.
5. THE SWINTON Turned Herself into an Art Installation.
I mean really, who else? What other actress would install herself as performance art? “The Maybe,” conceived by Swinton, features Tilda sleeping in a glass box, and will appear randomly (day and location within) this year at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art. Swinton has previously been previously installed in London and Rome. There is no schedule for her appearances; one must simply chance upon her.
4. Warner Bros. Announced Retro Batman Merchandise and an Upcoming Digital Comic.
Our beloved Batman of yore, Adam West, helped announce a new retro toy and clothing line that “pays homage” to the 1960s television series. The full press release reveals groovy t-shirts available at Junk Food Clothing, questionable Mattel Batman Ken® and Catwoman Barbie® Dolls, costumes, mini-figures, calendars and an upcoming digital series, BATMAN ‘66.
3. A New World War Z Trailer Dropped.
I don’t know, you guys…I just don’t know. I want to be excited, but Pitt’s lack of enthusiasm is rubbing off on me. Have a watch and tell me your thoughts. World War Z also stars Mireille Enos, David Morse, Matthew Fox, James Badge Dale and Eric West, and opens in theaters June 21st.
2. “Doctor Who” Released “The Bells of Saint John” Prequel, and Rumors of Matt Smith Leaving Flew.
That’s a sweet, if not predictable, little scene of the Doctor and a young girl; still, these melancholy moments really get to me. I’m quite curious as to the mystery of Clara Oswin Oswald dying over and over, and wondering if it’s not a lead in, of sorts. The Sun (I know, I know) claims Matt Smith will be leaving at the end of Series 7—might Moffat and Co. be setting up the delightful Miss Oswald as Twelve? It’s a strange little feeling in my gut, and I’m going with it. H/T lizzieborden.
1. We Were Treated to the “Game of Thrones: All of Us” Promo and a New Clip of Jaime and Brienne.
As despicable as he has been in the past, I can’t help it—Jaime is one of my favorite A Song of Ice and Fire characters, and his adventures with Brienne are both comedic and thrilling. Here’s hoping they’re a big part of Season 3. “Game of Thrones” returns next weekend (but we won’t see this dynamic duo until episode 2).
