I Am Link

--- Hot Dame - I ran out of time yesterday so I didn't get to participate in this week's "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" over at The Film Experience, which blows since I love the hell out of the movie they did - Double Indemnity, with one of Barbara Stanwyck's very best performances, and if you know Barabara Stanwyck you know she's got a whole lot of great performances.

--- Parenthetical - The first teaser poster for Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac actually made me laugh out loud, so that's something. When are we supposed to get this movie? I want this movie. I want this movie something crazy.

--- Asian Special - Because when you think "yakuza thriller," the first name that pops to mind is Daniel Radcliffe - the ex-wizard is set to star in Tokyo Vice, which is based on a book about a reporter's real-life experiences bringing down a Japanese mafia boss. 

--- Wonder Twins - Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige isn't giving a solid answer but all clues point to The Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver indeed being in the second Avengers movie, as Joss Whedon inferred last week.

--- And Speaking of Marvel, the dude who played Jackie Robinson this Spring in 42 named Chadwick Boseman is currently rumored to play Black Panther for the studio - they apparently want their "Phase Three" films to include the character.

--- Tea & Brains - This thing was so dead I forgot it was a thing, but now like the final word in its title Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has lurched back to life - Lily Collins, the Snow White nobody remembers, is set to star; some guy that directed two Zac Efron movies is set to direct.

--- Tight Spaces - Last week we heard that Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf were going to make a WWII tank thriller called Fury with the director of End of Watch - Logan Lerman, who was so so great in Perks of Being a Wallflower, has just joined the cast, too.

--- Dragon Wars - Q the Winged Serpent is going to be released on BluRay! Because nothing needs to be crystal clear more than the sight of those cops fighting that dragon all made out of Play-Doh. (I love this movie.)

--- Pointy End - I haven't read this yet because I haven't watched this week's episode yet but my pal Sean interviewed Maisie Williams, aka Arya on A Game of Thrones, aka a shocking little ball of talent.
