http://www.quietearth.us

At some point, I'm sure movies about Nicholas Cage playing a cop will reach over saturation but we haven't quite reached that peak moment yet so for now, at least, the Nicholas-Cage-cop-movies continue to come.

The latest is 211, which is written and directed by York Shackleton and is, according to the press notes, "inspired by one of the longest and bloodiest real-life events in police history."

http://www.syfy.com

Better Trailer for Terry Gilliam's THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE

http://www.quietearth.us

[Author's note: consider checking out my novel, "New Horizons" which is available to order now. Thanks all!]

Terry Gilliam has been trying to make The Man Who Killed Don Quixote for so many years the film has become cinema legend before it's even premiered. These kinds of passion projects come with a lot of baggage so I hope Gilliam is able to put what he always wanted on screen.

The second trailer for his film has premiered and it looks like everything a Gilliam fan might expect. It's lavish and carnivalesque and delirious and wonderful.

Jim Carey Gets Serious in Murder Drama DARK CRIMES [Trailer]

http://www.quietearth.us

It's not too surprising to see Jim Carey step into darker material. It's said that comedians have a dark streak and Carey's has always lingered on the surface; more so than most.

Dark Crimes stars Carey as Tadek, a detective investigating the grizzly death of a salesman, who turns to an author and his novel, a novel which features a similar crime, for answers. Along with Carey, the movie also stars Marton Csokas and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
