A look into Wes Anderson’s new world

I know I don’t often put up upcoming movie images or trailers anymore, but this is the film I’ve been waiting years for. This is the film Wes announced he would be working on before “The Darjeeling Limited” and after “The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.” I love both of those films (along with his earlier masterpieces), and I couldn’t wait to see his interpretation of a work that wasn’t his own original screenplay. This is new ground for Mr. Anderson, and with the voice talents of Bill Murray, Willem Dafoe, Adrien Brody, Brian Cox, Anjelica Huston, Jason Schwartzman, Owen Wilson, Michael Gambon, Roman Coppola and two new members of Anderson’s repertoire, George Clooney and Meryl Streep – this could be another masterwork for the hugely talented auteur. Here’s looking forward to November 13! Click images for larger view.

R.I.P. Karl Malden

One of the greatest performers of the 20th century, Mr. Karl Malden, has passed away at the age of 97.  I’ll always remember Malden for his incredibly moving performance as Father Barry in Kazan’s “On the Waterfront.” Never since has a character of such moral strength mixed with embittered humanity been portrayed so beautifully.  He was amazing on screen with Brando, and even though he won the Oscar for “A Streetcar Named Desire,” it’s his work with Kazan and Brando that always astounds me. We will miss you Karl.
