Top Banana

It’s almost Halloween and it’s a season of horror movies and scaring each other.  That means a whole mess of movie news are coming in and lists are being created out the wazoo to entertain the curious.  So I’ve compiled some of the internet’s best on Movie news to entertain you guys so far.  Meanwhile, in all the horror movie madness, I’m trying to jump on the American Horror Story FX bandwagon to see if that’s any good.  You guys have any opinions?

Marvel’s ambitious and star powered movie, The Avengers, released it’s first trailer this week.  The film include Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremey Renner, and Samuel L. Jackson.  Directed by Joss Whedon [Firefly, Buffy], I have high hopes for this.  Usually when movies are stuffed with too many stars, some can compete for the spotlight, and with this being an action movie, it’s easy for the writing to take the backseat.  By no means will this movie be a flop, what’s questionable is whether or not it will be any good.  Anywho, watch the trailer above and hit the links for more info on the Avengers.

Top Banana: Arrested Development coming back for a mini season AND a movie

When I read this article, I literally, in the word of the infamous analrapist [an analyzing therapist] Tobias Funke, ‘blue myself’.  In terms of comedy and wit, there isn’t a show more clever or funny than Mike Hurwitz’s Arrested Development, which ran from 2003-2006.  After 3 years, the show has developed a largely dedicated fanbase all protesting for a resurrection of the show or a movie.  And for the past few years, all actors from the show including: Jason Bateman, Will Arnet, Jeffrey Tambor have all claimed ‘a movie is in the works, and the script is being written’ that revealed very little on the actual progress of a movie being made.  So you can tell the internet rejoiced when Mike Hurwitz announced that not only were we getting a movie, but we’re getting a miniature season BEFORE the movie.  A season AND a movie!?!!?  It’s only a dream that can come true and it’s actually the smartest thing they could’ve done seeing as making a movie out of the blue probably wouldn’t have been a good idea.  From articles I’ve read, the miniature season, consisting of about 9 to 10 episodes will focus on one character each that gives off a ‘where are they now’ vibe that will lead up to the movie.  Start getting excited.  2013 has something looking forward to.

Top Banana – Alan Tudyk is awesome

If you’ve seen Firely Alan Tudyk is most easily recognized as Walsh, the quirky pilot.  In nearly every movie he is in, he usually plays a likable quirkly fellow.  Hands down one of the best parts of a movie as horrible as Transformers: Dark of the Moon was Tudyk.  And with memorable roles in Dollhouse, Death at a Funeral, and Sunny’s voice in I, Robot, it’s hard to dislike him.  Anyways, if you don’t know who he is, educate yourself because he’s got a new movie Tucker and Dale vs. Evil which according to critics, is actually quite good.

Whoops, I guess I fell a little behind on the banana tree.  Please accept this Saturday Banana Tree instead.

The Underworld Series isn’t the biggest nor is it the best franchise out there.  The first one was okay.  The second one was okay.  The third one was pretty bad.  So the expectations of this one can’t be too good.  But something about the lovable Kate Beckinsale in a spandex leotard just screams ‘Top Banana’ in my head, so here we are.  Whether or not this is a smelly byproduct of this generation’s vampire craze, I still find this franchise cool, mindless with the just right dose of macabre fun.  So here’s a bunch of links that link to the Underworld universe

This will not be the last time The Dark Knight Rises will be the Top Banana.  So I should’ve done a Harry Potter one then?  Nah, the world is covering Harry Potter enough, you don’t need my pathetic links anyhow.  But back to the main scoop, because Harry Potter isn’t the only thing making waves in the water.  The Dark Knight Rises is making headlines this weekend with rumors of having the trailer being released with Harry Potter’s wide release.  Earlier this week, we also got our first official image poster posted above.  So I’ve compiled a couple of links of some other Dark Knight Rises news along with a leaked and possibly faked trailer.  POTENTIAL SPOILERS.  Check them out below.

Warning Spoiler Alert!  I originally had a more spoilerific picture with Danny and her new dragons at her side, but I guess I had to preserve the innocence of the uninvolved. HBO’s Game of Thrones is a televised version of the acclaimed book: A Game of Thrones.  In the beginning, we were introduced with a slew of numerous characters, one could only wonder how they could keep audiences coming back for more each weekend.  But they pulled it off by keeping us shocked and on our toes.  With the death of major characters occurring in nearly every episode and with a finale made unforgettable by hair raising suspense and great story telling, it’s a shame I have to wait nearly nine months until Season 2.  If you don’t have HBO and are unable to watch this miraculous book come to life, it’s a shame and you should reconsider your cable options…Or at least find some website where they’re streaming it.  It’s that much worth it.
