I Am Link

--- The Dreaded Season - Harmony Korine's outlandish-looking Spring Breakers with James Franco in dreads is getting a release in December, and Slash thinks that means they're pushing for an Oscar nomination for him. I'm dying to see it, but an Oscar seem... wishful. Even if this is his most straightforward movie, this is a Harmony Korine movie... I just can't imagine it.

--- Golden Girls - Amy Poehler and Tina Fey hosting the Golden Globes? Kick ass! Bitch is the new host, y'all!

--- Bet On Budapest - Does Jason Schwartzman even make movies with anybody but Wes Anderson anymore? He's signed on for Wes' next called The Grand Budapest Hotel, surprising nobody.
--- Bond's Boys - As I predicted way back in August, there is something gayish going on between Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem in Skyfall, says people who have now seen it. I mean, we don't get to see Bond giving a beej in the name of his Queen's service or anything, but I suppose it's gotta be baby-steps when we're talking about such an icon of masculinity.

--- Spy List - Speaking of Bond, Nathaniel is asking you the people to rank the Bond movies... for those of you who have seen them, of course. I still have not, save the new ones, but I did download Dr. No the other day and have every intention of starting soon.

--- Final Season - The director of Sinister, which I still have got to see, is going to direct a movie out of Stephen King's story called The Breathing Method, which is the last story in his short story collection Different Seasons to get the movie treatment. The other three got turned into The Shawshank Redemption, Apt Pupil, and Stand By Me.

--- WTF Neil - It's been what fifty years times two since District 9 came out? Director Neil Blomkamp's been working on his follow-up Elysium ever since, but its release date just got pushed back from March To August of next year. I suppose August is a better time for a sci-fi epic or whatever the hell it is (they've kept the lid on pretty well so far) but still, my patience wears thin. Speaking of, also at that link is word that the Robocop remake isn't coming out until February of 2014. Good grief, they act like we're all gonna live forever.
--- A Good Buggering - And speaking of release dates attached to the time my retirement kicks in, Marvel has finally gotten official-like with Ant-Man - Edgar Wright will make the superhero pic and it will be out on November 6th, 2015.

--- Andrew Boy Webber - Some deleted scenes from The Amazing Spider-Man have made their way online and they show a bunch of the villain stuff that got cut that rendered the final product nearly inexplicable, but most importantly, they show some more of Andrew Garfield in his little spandex bodysuit.

--- Dead Dude - Our good friend Sean chatted with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman over at Rolling Stone; what did we think of the third season premiere? It had some good moments but there's still too much about the show that makes me crazy. I'll keep watching as long as the zombies look so good and gross though, tis my curse.

--- Viva Joan - There was an event honoring the forever incredible Joan Allen in Chicago and Nick reports to us upon it, along with some words from the wonderful woman herself.

--- And finally, this anti-texting Hitchcock promo is a delight, no?
