The Witch Works Surprisingly Well as a Wes Anderson Movie

The "X movie in the style of Y director/genre" idea has been done a million times (several times just with Wes Anderson alone), but they don't always work as well as this recut trailer for The Witch.

This Werner Herzog-Inspired Ant-Man Parody Is Haunting & Hilarious

"Scott Lang faces the horror of his truth."

Patrick Willems, the indie filmmaker behind "What If Wes Anderson Directed X-Men," has returned with another gift for cinema studies nerds: a Werner Herzog-inspired parody of Ant-Man. The aching slowness of this adaptation manages to bridge the gap between self-serious goofiness and true existential dread.

Oww: Wes Anderson’s Violence All Condensed Into One Supercut

Apparently he likes beating up Owen Wilson a lot.

You wouldn't normally associate Wes Anderson with violence, but if you've seen a few of his films, you know it can get pretty grisly.

The Uncanny X-Men, As Reimagined By Wes Anderson

Is it too late to fire Bryan Singer?

Friend to the site Patrick Willems has made some pretty great videos in his "comic book movies as made by famous directors" series (remember Tommy Wiseau's Batman and Ingmar Bergman's Flash?), but this might be my favorite, if only for the perfectly appropriate jumpsuits. Eat your heart out, First Class!

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)

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

Why Not Do It With Some Style?

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.

Wes Anderson’s Star Wars: Episode VII Doesn’t Need to Make Sense to Be Cool

As soon as the world found out that there would be a new trilogy of Star Wars films that would not be written, directed, or produced by George Lucas, the internet has been tossing and turning 24 hours a day wrestling with one question: "Who the hell is going to make these movies!?" The first piece of the puzzle was revealed yesterday, when LucasFilm announced that screenwriter Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3, Little Miss Sunshine) will pen Episode VII. (He's rumored to be writing the whole trilogy, by the way.) Having a good script is important, of course, but most fans are much more concerned with who will direct the film(s). Everyone in their mother has their opinion on the issue, and there are already a handful of "favorite" names, including Joss Whedon, Christopher Nolan, J.J. Abrams, and more. One name that is on almost nobody's list, however, is quirky auteur Wes Anderson. Nobody's list, except for Conan O'Brien, of course, who put together this sample of what an Anderson-directed Star Wars sequel might look like.

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. (via /Film)

Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom Looks Fantastic, Yellow

The trailer for writer-director-auteur Wes Anderson's forthcoming film Moonrise Kingdom has dropped and it looks pretty fantastic. Set in the late 1960s, the film centers around a puppy love romance between two twelve year-olds that culminates in their running away, and the subsequent man hunt. Add Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, and (of course) Bill Murray, and it just gets even better. The 1960s setting and the very young cast are interesting moves for Anderson; he's used a '60s aesthetic in a lot of his movies and had very young actors in his movies before, but it will be interesting to see how his directoral abilities and stylized film making will work with the cast. I simply can't wait for the slow-motion walking scenes and daddy issues. See the trailer, after the break.

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.

The Super Bowl as Directed by Tarantino, David Lynch, Wes Anderson…

This is an entire four days ("four Internet eons") old, but it's still fresh: SlateV put together a spoof video imagining the Super Bowl as directed by Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, David Lynch, Werner Herzog, and a few more auteurs.

David Lynch Super Bowl=regular Super Bowl with scary noises, shaky camera, and demonic bobbleheads thrown in. It's funny 'cause it's true.
