AT FIRST SIGHTs: ‘Black Swan’ trailers up, ‘Blood Simple’ gets a remake

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

I was just gonna Facebook status these, but then I was getting kind of wordy and I thought to myself, ‘Gee I wish I had an appropriate venue for sharing movie news and thoughts…’

I wrote about Black Swan what feels like ages ago, finally some pictures were released of Natalie Portman bird’ed out and now tada! a trailer hits.  And it is as Aronofsky as you could hope.

And by Aronofsky I mean troubling and intriguing and I’ll probably only see it once while certain images will be burned in my brain for forever (thanks but no thanks Requiem for a Dream…)
Check it:

See what I mean?  What do you think?  Brain Donors meets District 9?  Just me??

And then also!  Thanks to FilmDrunk for this- Blood Simple is getting a Chinese remake by none other than Zhang Yimou.  BOOM.  That’s awesome.  I only know of Zhang Yimou because I took that one class in college, so in case you didn’t have the same requirements as me, let me inform you, he’s serious biz.

A Woman, a Gun, and a Noodle Shop is a pretty cool title if you can forget that there was ever a thing called Two Guys, A Girl, and a Pizza Place.  AmIright??

I seriously can’t wait to movie night Blood Simple in preparation.  Who’s in??!!!  (Ahem, Aaron, I’m lookin’ at you…)
