Community has had quite the history, and it’s a major feat that the show has managed to stay on the air despite the struggling ratings and behind-the-scenes malarkey that has been thrown in the show’s way throughout its run. Surprisingly, the show has remained a resilient cult favourite, fulfilling the “six-seasons-and-a-movie” doctrine. The show has seen Chevy Chase falling out with series creator Dan Harmon; Harmon then getting fired; Chase deciding to leave; Season four losing its way due to the departure of Harmon; Harmon being reinstated. And, just when we thought things were copacetic, show favorite Donald Glover announced his plans to leave, with Yvette Nicole Brown following suit after season five. You have to admire the tenacity of the remaining cast and crew and the respect they uphold towards the fans. (more…)
So now that the summer of superhero movies have come to a close, what’s there to look forward to? Well, there’s a number of exciting films on the horizon actually. One flick in particular, though, would have to be Andy and Lana Wachowski (the Matrix trilogy) and Tom Tykwer‘s (Run Lola Run) Cloud Atlas .The trailer for it hit just a few days ago, and my lord…it’s poised to be one heck of a Sci-Fi spectacle! I for one, am astonished at how wildly imaginative it is. There are six stories in the movie that the characters will appear in that cross through different genres and take place of over the course of a thousand years. (Basically, all the actors play different characters in different time frames of the story). I mean come one, how ambitious does sound? Plus, with this being a Wachowski joint, you know it’s going to be a visual treat.
If you haven’t checked out the trailer I implore you to do so (I’ve embedded it after the jump). I think you’ll be impressed. For the rest of you, Warner Bros. has launched the official website for the film, and included in the website are photos from every single character in the film. In these photos you’ll see variations of actors Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Doona Bae, Ben Whishaw, James D’Arcy, Xun Zhou, Keith David, David Gyasi, Susan Sarandon and Hugh Grant.
Sure, some of the make-ups look like they were done from booted contestants from SyFy’s Face-Off, but it’s kind of remarkable how distinctly different each actor looks. Some of them are completely unrecognizable.
