Thompson on Hollywood

Many entertainment moguls are vacationing on a boat. A big boat.

What happened when Twitter was attacked.

The Coens' A Serious Man has a new poster (above). Not sure it's going to sell many tickets.

Here's a new U.K. trailer for The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, still seeking a stateside distributor.

And here's a new U.S. trailer for the Universal Nancy Meyers film It's Complicated--produced by Scott Rudin and starring Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. I see why everyone is so high on it. Looks like Streep's having a very good year.

    Of course the movie ice cream parlor is stocked only with vanilla, and there's just not a aolescent boy tutti-frutti superhero movie to be had. Boo-hoo, Alboone.

    serious man poster is the anti-box-office one-sheet. looks like movie is adapted from novel about a guy who does something in the sixties. dialogue-driven and not much fun.

    Uggh...typical middle aged white bread vanilla crap on a rotted stick. Something tells me that...WE'VE SEEN THIS MOVIE BEFORE!!!!

    I'm excited for It's Complicated. Although I do think if Nora Ephron ever makes another straight-up rom-com, she could give Nancy Meyers a run for her money.

    Nope. It's Complicated looks like it'll be No. 1 on my "I'll take a pass on that" on my Xmas films to see list. I think I'll rent that Last House on the Left remake DVD instead
