NICK AND NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST gets a trailer; In other news, Michael Cera just charmed your mother into bed

Michael Cera (Nick) of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT and SUPERBAD fame stars with 40 YEAR-OLD VIRGIN and CHARLIE BARTLETT's Kat Dennings (Norah)in a teen comedy about love, music, and awkward situations.

The plot goes something like this:
So Norah's at this club where Nick's band is playing and because of a question asked by one of Norah's friend, Nora asks Nick to be her boyfriend for five minutes which eventually leads Nick to start thinking that the girlfriend that just broke up with him earlier might not be the only one for him which then takes both Nick and Norah around NYC to a number of clubs and bars to see bands play and their quasi-first date forces both of them to ponder whether this might hopefully become something wonderful or just fizzle into what is was in the first place, a sham.

High-res WATCHMEN screenshots and EMPIRE cover

EMPIRE has released their upcoming issue's cover and screenshots from WATCHMEN. If the film is already getting so much press and promotion, I wonder how it's going to be come January and February. I mean, not even DARK KNIGHT had these exclusives eight months before its release. As much as I love WATCHMEN, I also very much understand they way Alan Moore feels about the whole film situation. I guess I'm glad millions more people will be brought into the world of WATCHMEN and can appreciate the novel but at the same time, I really beg all of those people to read the novel before watching the film. I'm sure this will only make you appreciate the film even more. But there are plenty of amazing novels that have been adapted and are being adapted to the screen with just as many fans that feel the same way before they watch the film version of their novels, right?


Update: new high resolution WATCHMEN posters !!

The Con brought us some great things this year and some not so impressive things as well but of the former are these new character posters from WATCHMEN. They all look incredible and thanks to IGN and Omelete, we the public outside of Comic-Con can enjoy them and here they are in no particular order. Note the WATCHMEN art style that they are preserving from the novel, I'm liking that. Also, the quotes above are enveloping and especially important if you are not familiar with the novel. By the way, the pin-up at towards the end was released before the Con but I figure it's great enough to put up again now, wouldn't you agree?



This is a fun one. Rob DeNiro, Bruce Willis, Stanley Tucci, written and directed by Art Linson and Barry Levinson. Unlike many critics and reviewers out there, I think the trailer actually does look funny and I do want to watch it. It was received poorly at Sundance and has been having trouble since but I have hope, kinda. Check out the trailer below.
