Annie Leibovitz Shoots ‘Les Miserables’ Cast for Vogue

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Editorials,

'Les Miserables' cast, shot by Annie Leibovitz

As if there wasn't enough publicity for Tom Hooper's upcoming film adaptation of Les Miserables, Vogue just had to have noted fashion photographer Annie Leibovitz capture the cast for their glossy pages. Admittedly, the content is right up Leibovitz's dark, dreamy alley, but they all basically look like the film's posters - with a more elaborate backdrop. Well, maybe except for the fact that Anne Hathaway does actually look like a dying prostitute (seen after the jump) in these photos.

The editorial - which also features Amanda Seyfriend, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Isabella Allen - will appear in Vogue's December issue, clearly to coincide with the film's December 25 release date.

Kyle Baker Casts Cowboy Wally

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Movies, DC Comics,

Cowboy WallyOne of my favorite games to play is the Casting Game, guessing who could play what part in a movie version of a book or comic.

And I’m also a big fan of Kyle Baker’s work, and The Cowboy Wally Show and Why I Hate Saturn are two of my favorite graphic novels.

On Facebook, Kyle recently said “Out in LA meeting about live action adaptations of the GNs I own. I really want Tom Hanks to play Cowboy Wally. Other casting suggestions?”

And the feed went crazy. Mike Carlin (former DC Executive Editor) suggested Stephen Root for Cowboy Wally, or “if you need more star power” go for Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Another suggested Jeff Daniels or John Goodman.

Gaspard Ulliel Cast as Yves Saint Laurent

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Fashion Designers, News,

Gaspard Ulliel Yves Saint Laurent

After a "huge audition [process]," French actor Gaspard Ulliel - whom you may recall from Gus Van Sant's heartbreakingly sweet short in Paris, Je T'aime - has been cast as the lead in an upcoming biopic of French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.

Announced this past year at the Cannes Film Festival, the film - directed by Bertrand Bonello - will go into production this spring. Although there is neither a formal script nor screenplay just yet, the film is expected to focus on the designer's life from the mid-Sixties to about 1976.

Disney/Star Wars: Top 10

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Movies,

Admiral AckbarStar Wars/Disney jokes were old the second the deal for Disney to acquire Lucasfilm was announced, but that won’t stop anyone, especially me.

A meme went around on Facebook earlier this week started by screenwriter William Martell. What are the best/worst Disney/Star Wars movies?

I joined in, thinking what a great idea, and then so I didn’t monopolize the thread, I started keeping my thoughts to myself to share them here because I can.

Here are my Top 10 Disney/Star Wars mash-ups. But be careful!

As Admiral Ackbar will say, “It’s a Parent Trap!”

10. The Scarecrow of Romney Maul

9. The Computer Wore Light Sabres

Quote Of The Day: Iron Man 3

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Movies, Marvel Comics,

Iron Man 3

"Whew. Just saw the new Iron Man trailer. I’m really glad they got rid of that 'snarky humor action adventure' trope. No AC/DC, no quips, no fast cars, no stripping stewardesses. Finally, the pointless debris of 'entertainment' has been discarded in favor of the grim truth that lies beneath the surface of every comic book character."

- Chris Ulm, co-founder of Appy Entertainment (and a co-founder of Malibu Comics in an earlier life) saw the trailer for Iron Man 3 and it inspired him. And that's just the beginning of his epic takedown.

Back To…Back To The Future!

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Movies, Reviews, Independent,

A Matter Of Time“I need 1.21 gigawatts of electricity!”

If that calls up images of Marty McFly, Doc Brown, DeLorean time machines and the Enchantment Under The Sea dance in your brain, then you’re a fan of Back To The Future, the time-traveling trilogy starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd.

And if you are a fan, you’re definitely going to want A Matter of Time: The Unauthorized Back to the Future Lexicon from Hasslein Books and author Rich Handley.

The massive book ships in November, but you can pre-order it from the official website

According to Handley, his lexicon “brings fans the entire franchise: every character, place and object ever featured in the BTTF mythos, from not only the films, but also the screenplays, cartoons, novels, video games, card game, amusement-park ride, music videos and more.”

Thanos Quest

"How weird is this? The Thanos Quest, a comic Ron Lim and I did more than two decades ago, is this past month's #1 best selling comic. All it takes is a little film exposure, apparently."
