Brad Pitt gets hit by 200 cars Oct 12 2011
This is pretty much the point at which I knew I was going to love Inglourious Basterds:
Although I can sure see why someone might hate it; the film rode that razor's edge all the way through.
Somehow this slipped past me recently: there's a full trailer out for Inglourious Basterds, the new Tarantino flick starring Brad Pitt.
Wired magazine has collected a bunch of rules for "highly evolved humans"...Emily Post 2.0 I guess. Brad Pitt suggests that not only can you look at pornography at work, you should bring your porno magazines in to scan on the office scanner.
Let's take a look at who's still alive here. Brad Pitt: yes. Aaron Sorkin: yes. Steven Soderbergh: no. Expected soon: Michael Bay, Alan Ball, Sam Mendes, McG, and M Night Shamalamadingdong. (thx, david)
The combination of Pitt and Soderbergh and Lewis wasn't enough to keep the Moneyball movie afloat...Sony canceled it "days before shooting was to begin".
Accounts from more than a dozen people involved with the film, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to avoid damaging professional relationships, described a process in which the heady rush toward production was halted by a studio suddenly confronted by plans for something artier and more complex than bargained for.
Sony was probably looking for something more BIG RED TEXTish.
Wait, Steven Soderbergh is directing the film adaptation of Michael Lewis' Moneyball? When did this wonderfulness happen?!! Last I heard, the director was the guy who did Marley & Me. Perhaps Pitt put the kibosh on that and lobbied for Soderbergh? (via fimoculous)
Tarantino's latest film is about Nazi-killing American soldiers and stars Brad Pitt. I can't decide if this movie is going to completely suck or be really great. Vampire movies notwithstanding, Quentin always gets the benefit of the doubt from me so great it is.
For the completist only: Brad Pitt stars in a French? Japanese? commercial directed by Wes Anderson.
As the French would say, QEQLB? (via le fiddle)
Update: A YouTube commenter noted that this commercial is probably based on Jacques Tati's M. Hulot's Holiday.
Trailer for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. David Fincher, Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, F. Scott Fitzgerald. Pitt's character starts off as an old man and ages backwards. Is it possible to buy tickets for this *right now*? BTW, the full text of the Fitzgerald short story on which the film is based is available online.
This one's not holding up as well as one would think. The first time I saw it, in the theater in 1999, my reaction was "eh". The second time, on DVD a few years ago, I thought it was great. Now I'm back closer to "eh" again.
An annotated list of movies due out in 2008. I didn't know that Darren Aronofsky was working on a new movie...about a boxer and starring Brad Pitt and Mark Wahlberg, no less.
Teaser trailer for Oceans 13. Looks like #13 is Andy Garcia.
Hypothesis: Brad Pitt adapts his appearance to that of whoever he's dating at the time, kind of like how dogs start to look like their owners. Here's some supporting evidence.
The Superficial on Kate Moss and her poor taste in men: "You could stick her in a room with Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and the Kool-Aid Man, and five minutes later all you'd hear would be 'Ohhhhhh Yeah!'"
