Trailers I’m Obsessed With: The Grand Budapest Hotel

From my favourite storyteller.

I was so caught up watching the trailer, admiring the poster and reading everything I could get my hands on about Wes Anderson’s new film that I forgot to post the trailer here.

If I was a cartoon you would see hearts in my eyes.

Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, Eminem to Perform at First YouTube Music Awards


This is one award show I’ll be sure to watch.  Actually, I watch them all but I’m especially looking forward to the first YouTube Music Awards, mainly because Spike Jonze has been named Creative Director and because Eminem, Lady Gaga and Arcade Fire are scheduled to perform and they never disappoint.  The show will present winners in six categories all voted on by viewers.

Jonze told Billboard he was intrigued by the challenge of producing an “unconventional” awards show.  “I want to find out if we can make a whole night just about making things,” Jonze said. “Instead of just doing performances, can we do live collaborations?”

Airdate: The 90 minute live event is slated for November 3rd.

So, halfway through shooting Denis Villeneuve’s Enemy he signed up for the Oscar-nominated Montrealer’s first Hollywood movie called Prisoners opening in theatres Sept. 20.

After well-received film festival premieres, first at Telluride and then in Toronto, the Villeneuve thriller is predicted to be headed toward the glitz of the 2014 Academy Awards.

In Prisoners, Gyllenhaal plays a focused detective investigating the disappearance of two small town Pennsylvania girls on Thanksgiving.

Hugh Jackman plays a right-wing survivalist who takes the law into his own hands when his daughter and her friend are reported missing. Paul Dano is the suspect eventually released and tracked down by Jackman’s father.

Rounding out the cast are Melissa Leo, Terrence Howard, Viola Davis and Maria Bello,
