Things We Saw Today: Elrond, Thranduil, and Kids as Penguins

I think the blue-eyed chick on the left is supposed to be Arwen, because Elrond’s other kids were twin sons? Because I know that’s the first thing you were wondering about this picture. (Siwillli on Tumblr)

Why Not Do It With Some Style?

“You Are Cordially Invited to Attend a Star Wars”: Episode VII As Directed by Wes Anderson [VIDEO]

Now that Star Wars: Episode VII has a writer, it’ll need a director. And with this audition tape, Wes Anderson—or, well, someone on the Conan staff with a good sense of Andersonian whimsy—has shown us what an Episode VII directed by the maestro of quirk might look like. There’s Junior Telescope Club member Han Solo, Boba Fett in a Steve Zissou-style red beanie, and a healthy amount of goldenrod yellow (of course). Oh, and Han shoots first.

Sony Asked Kids About Cell Phones, Wes Anderson Created A Short Film About It (With Robots)

We don’t often post videos that are simply advertisements for something but in this case, we couldn’t help ourselves. So yadda, yadda, yadda, Sony is putting out a new cell phone but they had the awesome idea to pick kids’ brains about what cell phones actually are and how they work. The results? Predictably adorable. But it doesn’t end there. They then tasked Wes Anderson, director of The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox , and the upcoming Moonrise Kingdom, to create a short-film about it. It has robots. Robots with rocket fuel. The actual results should be out in a full spot on March 24 but here’s a sneak peak.

Dan Aykroyd: Ghostbusters 3 May Begin Production in the Spring

I can barely contain myself: Dan Aykroyd, Ray Stanz himself, made an appearance on Dennis Miller Radio and confirmed that there really is pre-production happening on Ghostbusters 3 and that actual production could start as early as the spring of next year. He has discussed the most basic aspects of the intended plot and even threw out a very interesting casting possibility. And yes, there was mention of a female Ghostbuster. So, you’re telling me there’s a chance … that I can still be a Ghostbuster, right? … No? … That’s cool. I’m still excited beyond belief about this news.
