The number one trending video on YouTube today is the trailer for Jim Carrey’s Dark Crimes. Carrey ditches comedy for this gritty thriller. In the film a hard-boiled detective becomes suspicious of an author when the incidents described in his hit novel resemble the inner-workings of an unsolved murder.
The film is a Polish-American venture that’ll be released on May 11th.
THE WALKING DEAD
With declining ratings (and quality), The Walking Dead showrunner Scott M. Gimple spoke with EW this week and says this coming weekend’s season finale will wrap up not just this season’s arc but many of the story arcs from the past eight seasons.
“I was there, and it was an intense vibe. It was a very hard season. And kind of everybody is in this episode. It was just intense. People were pretty to the limit this year emotionally. Also, this episode isn’t just like these 15 episodes coming to a conclusion, but Angela and myself and the writers had always talked about this in many ways being sort of the conclusion of the first eight seasons. This show will be very much a new show next year and with a bigger, new narrative.”
To say the show is fatigued would be an understatement
Jay Leno’s Garage is one of the best channels on YouTube. This month, he’s taking a look at the Knight Rider Trans Am (a Firebird in the video).
There are a lot of replicas of K.I.T.T. around, but the one Leno takes a look at courtesy of two enthusiasts is one of the 20 originals used on the show, of which only five remain.
Surprisingly, the owner reveals that he got his hands on it after he learned that Universal simply sent it to the scrapyard, so he got lucky.
STALLONE FENDER BENDER
Kind of a bonus video here, featuring Sylvester Stallone involved in a fender bender with a hot blonde.
It turns out that the woman hit him, and tried to offer insurance details. But Stallone was having none of it. You can hear her offering her phone number.
We said there are problems with The Predator on here. If you want further proof of that, you can see others confirming it, namely Keegan-Michael Key.
We just finished [reshoots] last week, and just about three-quarters of the third act was rewritten. And Shane Black is… he’s just a consummate professional, and a consummate writer. He’s a wordsmith! It was a really, really exhilarating experience, and I think that he’s still one of our most vibrant writers of cinema.
They scrapped most of the third act. No surprises here, but whether or not it’s enough to save it, apparently not from what I’ve been told.
