First look at John Cameron Mitchell's "Rabbit Hole"

Actually, before I get into that, two bits of news in what will be a short report today because I've got some errands to run before going to see "The Town" today and most likely "Easy A" tomorrow (now that's a good movie weekend.)

Though I'd be more interested to find out what happens to the stunningly talented Connie Britton once the "Friday Night Lights" go out, which will be after next season (coming in spring again to NBC, I believe), her TV hubby has already snagged a new gig.

Kyle Chandler, aka Coach Taylor, and young Elle Fanning are the first two stars announced for writer/director J.J. Abrams' "Super 8." What else do we know about the project? Not too much - just that it's most likely some kind of alien thing (shocking, I know) and it's shooting this fall for release next year. Here's the extremely unrevealing teaser trailer that debuted earlier this year.

In other news, the one thing that would make me finally break down and order BBC America is perhaps about to happen soon. Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, creators of "The Office" and "Extras," are officially turning their pilot for "Life's Too Short" into an at least six-part series for BBC2.

So, what is it? Well, it stars (and I'm not making this description from the Hollywood Reporter up) "Britain's pre-eminent little person actor" Warwick Davis, and it is indeed about his life, with some appearances from Gervais and Merchant too.

Here's hoping they don't bully Davis as badly as they do poor Karl Pilkington on their very funny podcasts, but I don't think that will be the case. Here's how Gervais himself describes it:

"Third in our trilogy of TV sitcoms, Life's Too Short is another naturalist observational comedy, dealing with everyday problems, human foibles and social faux pas... but with a dwarf," said Gervais.

Sounds like nothing but funny to me, so keep an eye out for it, and let me know if you ever find it.

But on to the main event today, and it really has to be just about the opposite of funny, but it should still be fairly great - and with the buzz around Nicole Kidman's performance maybe even playing wide enough by the end of this year that even I'll be able to see it at Macon's one (for now at least) movie theater.

If you've never heard of John Cameron Mitchell, he's the director of the crazy little punk rock/sex change operation gone wrong gem "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," which would make a perfect Saturday night rental if you've never seen it. He also made a sex romp called "Short Bus," but I've never seen that one (not because it would possibly offend me in any way, just because I haven't gotten around to it yet.)

And now he's back with something pretty much completely different, "Rabbit Hole," which has been picked up by Lionsgate. The movie stars Kidman and Aaron Eckhart as a married couple dealing with the death of their 4-year-old son (I said the opposite of funny, right.) Dire stuff, that, but I can't think of the last time Nicole Kidman picked a role that made me say "that was just awful" (yes, I even liked "Margot at the Wedding" quite a bit), so I'm really looking forward to this. Enjoy these two scenes from the movie, and of course, go see at least one movie this weekend. Peace out.

I had the very great pleasure of interviewing John Cameron Mitchell about "Shortbus." He is a sweetheart. And I really recommend the documentary and CD "Wig in a Box," about a fund-raiser for a NYC high school for gay kids with big stars covering the "Hedwig" songs.

I have the CD, Nell, and listen to it all the time .. the two version of "Wicked Little Town" by Kim and Kelly Deal and then the three Bens are particularly addictive .. I didn't know there was an accompanying documentary, though, so I'll try and track it down .. thanks for the heads up!

The more I see Hedwig, the more I like it. Shortbus was . . . well, it was all right. This one does look like a departure, but Dianne Wiest playing Nicole Kidman's mom w/ Eckhart and Sandra Oh? Yeah, that sounds good.
Saw MacGruber this weekend because there was really nothing else available for download that sounded good. I can't say I hated it. I didn't think it was good, don't get me wrong, but some of those characterizations had me in stitches, namely, Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig.
And, the best thing in the movie? Right here for your download pleasure.

Reel Fanatic said...

Thanks for that, Jeremy, but I have to say I hated that movie with a passion ... Even on the scale of SNL movies, that was probably the worst one I've seen, and it was a real accomplishment to make something I didn't enjoy watching Kristen Wiig in
