Where the Wild Things Are trailer

I've heard about the ambitious Where the Wild Things Are movie project for awhile now. Reportedly, Spike Jonze resisted the obvious temptation to use CGI and animation for this project. He instead used costumes which obviously delayed the film, but the quality and effectiveness of his vision is easily apparent.

Year One Trailer

When I first saw the teaser trailer for Year One, I wasn't impressed. The movie actually reminded me of that horrible eighties movie Caveman starring Ringo Starr.

This trailer shows more potential than the teaser did and also some of the comedic chemistry between Michael Cera and Jack Black.

March Madness began today and everyone is watching their brackets to see how they do this year.

Even our President, Barack Obama got in on the action.

The Tar Heels huh...not exactly going out on a limb.

Tyson Movie Trailer

Love him or hate him Mike Tyson is a fascinating person.

A new documentary film by director James Tobeck will attempt to shed light on the troubled ex-champion.

Also in case you haven't seen it yet. Mike Tyson appears in the film The Hangover directed by Todd Phillips.

Seriously, some hilarious stuff.

The Face of Shakespeare?

Apparently this is the face of William Shakespeare.

The portrait is dated around 1610, which would mean it was done about six years before his death. It was unveiled today to the press. It is believed to be the only painting of Shakespeare made during his lifetime. The image also reportedly sheds some more light on who the Bard actually was. According to experts, the image contradicts previous notions that he was a struggling artist. Reportedly the garment that Mr. Shakespeare is wearing in the portrait is the clothing of someone of upper class, not working class. The intricate lace on the collar supposedly being the main clue of his wealth.

Also Shakespeare has previously been seen in portraits as balding. Such as this famous drawing which was made AFTER his death.

Maybe people remembered him wrong? Jealousy maybe?

Who knew? Turns out Shakespeare did resemble Joseph Fiennes after all.

Which should make the ladies happy.

Here's the full pic.

Handsome devil. Don't you think?
