There are few things as reliably funny as Bad Lip Reading, the YouTube series that takes existing footage and subs over it with hilarious nonsense. Their latest targets are the 2013 Independent Spirit Award nominees for Best Screenplay, which means that they're taking well-written and well-liked movies 'Silver Linings Playbook' and 'Moonrise Kingdom,' and transforming them into absurdism at its best and strangest.

Racking up a plethora of nominations and wins this awards season is the quirky, clever 'Moonrise Kingdom' screenplay. Penned by director Wes Anderson along with Roman Coppola, the script recently nabbed an Oscar nod, sadly its only nomination.
If you enjoyed Anderson and Coppola's peculiar brand of humor and whimsy as we did (you can see its prime placement on our Top 20 Movies of 2012), you'll be happy to flip through the script itself, which has just appeared online. Only this isn't just any stuffy old screenplay - this one is interactive!

The 2013 Golden Globes nominations were announced this morning when Jessica Alba, Megan Fox and Ed Helms took the press stage. Predictably, Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln,' Kathryn Bigelow's 'Zero Dark Thirty' and Tom Hooper's 'Les Miserables' all went home happy with their respective noms, but an unexpected surprise was the inclusion of 'Django Unchained' in a total of five categories, including one for Best Picture! But who are the film's main competitors?

Way to go, internet! You jumped the gun on this one!
In all fairness, we were among the many sites that reported Johnny Depp being cast in Wes Anderson's upcoming 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' but it turns out that was far from confirmed. Mr. Anderson himself has cleared it all up for us: his film will have a great cast, but it will not include Depp.

New Wes Anderson Short Film to Premiere Online?

by Jacob Hall June 2, 2012 @ 11:14 AM
Wes Anderson is back! Well, he didn't really go anywhere, but the director sure does take his sweet time between movies. His latest, 'Moonrise Kingdom,' is not only one of our favorite films of the year so far, it's breaking box office records, so pardon us for wishing he'd work a little more often. Anderson fans still waiting for 'Moonrise Kingdom' to come to their city (or those wanting just a little more of a fix) are in luck: the filmmaker is apparently premiering a new short film online next week.

10 Best Movies of 2012 (So Far)

by Jordan Hoffman June 1, 2012 @ 7:11 AM
The best movies of 2012?! I don't want to freak you out, but 2012 is half over. Wait, that's pessimistic! 2012 has half-begun! Wait, that makes no sense. Either way, you catch my drift, the year is at its midway point and that means it has been six months since I've made a critical top ten list – and I'm starting to twitch. To that end, I'm taking this opportunity to count down my ten favorite movies of the first half of 2012, hence this early Best Movies of 2012 list.

Box Office Update: 'Moonrise Kingdom' Breaks Records

by Jacob Hall May 28, 2012 @ 2:20 PM
In yesterday's Box Office Report, we brought you the news of 'Men in Black 3's disappointing weekend gross and wondered if a Memorial Day audience would rescue it. It's looking like Will Smith's grand return has officially landed with a thud. Sure, $70 million across four days may sound like a lot, but it's not, especially for a film that cost $230 million before the advertising costs.
While 'Men in Black 3' underperformed, a small film from a critically adored filmmaker made a special kind of splash. In fact, Wes Anderson's 'Moonrise Kingdom' broke a box office record.
