Anticipating the World’s End

If you are not a fan of the Simon Pegg and Nick Frost duo, leave now. Actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost
We are not of the same kind.

However, if you are, you will share in my excitement in anticipating their new upcoming film, The World’s End (in theaters August 23rd).

Both Simon Pegg and director Edgar Wright previously wrote Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. With this latest film, they’ll be wrapping up the trilogy, telling the story of five long-time friends who have reunited after 20 years to complete the ultimate pub crawl!

Nolan & Bale to Join Justice League

El Mayimbe of Latino Review has reported a bit of information that has me crossing my fingers until 2015. Christopher Nolan is rumored to spearhead the production of the Justice League movie, featuring Christian Bale as Batman once again. My reaction…


Let’s talk about the possibility of this movie’s success. As noted on Box Office Mojo, Joss Whedon’s The Avengers, featuring Marvel Comics’ superhero team, grossed at over $1.5 billion worldwide. Well, Nolan’s The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises grossed at about the same– EACH. Add a few more superheroes to the mix, and well– you do the math.

Why, Adrien? Why?

The most inappropriate part of the upcoming film InAPPropriate Comedy (2013) would be your participation in it, Adrien Brody. Rob Schneider– slightly disappointing, but not inconceivable. Lindsay Lohan– I won’t even go there.

But you?

You have an impressive curriculum vitae– for the most part. Your dedication to your character in The Jacket (2005) was reputable. Same goes for your contribution in The Pianist (2002), an impeccable performance. And then there was your substantial role in Midnight in Paris (2011) as the Spanish painter, Salvador Dali– a job well done.

But this… This is just for funsies, right? You owe someone a favor? Did you lose a bet? If you needed a break, fine. I’ll watch it, for blog’s sake!

Alas! I am still hopeful for what’s “in the works.” With a cast comprised of Liam Neeson, James Franco, Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, and Casey Affleck (just to mention a few), a romance drama like The Third Person (2013) might just be your shot at redemption. (Although– a good cast doesn’t necessarily guarantee a good movie. I mean, look at Movie 43.) If that doesn’t help, we can just wait with fingers crossed for the comedy drama The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014), which also features a pretty good lineup.

In the meantime, I’ll keep your Gillette commercial on loop:
