In the movie biz, dailies are unedited raw footage from the day. The director peruses them and gets a rough outline of the stuff he shot that day. At Swiftfilm, the dailies are the best stories of the day plus some that didn’t make the cut. It’s the unedited form of Swiftfilm, in a fun little package. Enjoy.
When movie-rental service Netflix made its foray into the world of content creation people didn’t know what to expect. Huh? A TV show from Kevin Spacey and David Fincher? Huh, who names a show Lilyhammer!? Wait, Arrested Development is returning on Netflix and all 10 episodes are coming out at the same time!? YES. But it’s looking pretty good so far.
Like this advertising for another network that pushes itself. TNT tells everyone that’ll listen that “We Know Drama.” Now they’re expanding into Belgium and to promote their new network they put out this elaborate act. Basically, a dude pushes a button “for drama” and a whole bunch of awesome stuff goes on. Watch it.
I bet George Washington had no clue any of this was going to happen when he was the general of the army and leading Americans against the British Empire, did he? Anyway, he probably didn’t know that the director of Black Swan was eventually going to make a movie about him anyway.
And I’m sure Alfred Hitchcock never thought they’d make a movie about him. Hell, I don’t know if he could even imagine anyone playing him in a film. Either way, Anthony Hopkins looks damn good as the famous director. Holla at your makeup artists.
There are going to be a lot of makeup artists working on the crazy styles of the citizens of the Capitol in Catching Fire, which still doesn’t have a director. Lionsgate is still looking though. Two more of their choices have been revealed: Moneyball director Bennett Miller and I Am Legend director Francis Lawrence.
Mission Impossible 5 is looking for a director too. Brad Bird doesn’t seem convinced he’s coming back or that he even wants to come back. I suggest Christopher Nolan.
You know, Nolan’s take on Bond would also be interesting. Oh well, I guess we’ll make due with Sam Mendes and a video game based on Bond’s greatest moments. I swear, if they mess this game up and insert a Heineken-drinking minigame I’m going to fly off into a pit of lava.
Like Anakin in Star Wars Episode 3 (oh whoops, spoilers). Anyway, has anyone noticed the final fight between Obi Wan and Anakin looks like the fight between Simba and Scar in the Lion King?
