Austenland Website Now Open

The Austenland website is now open. If you click on the enter site link you get a whole series of oprions about the film. Other areas still seem to be under construction,

The Hollywood Reporter did a recent article that Austenland is only being marketed to women, but guys are welcome to see the film. Early reviews had women loving the movie and guys hating it.

Stephenie Meyer stated

This film is very uniquely female,” she explains. “There can’t be many movies in the marketplace that are based on a novel by a woman, scripted by women, produced by women, directed by a woman and starring a woman. There are beginning to be more female-centric, female-created movies in the marketplace, but they’re still vastly the minority.”

 

Bill Condon’s New Movie Trailer Debuts

Bill Condon’s first movie post Breaking Dawn that deals with the Wikileaks scandal just debuted its trailer. The movie is called The Fifth Estate and it stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Stanley Tucci, Dan Stevens, Laura Linney, David Thewlis among others.

Bill Condon said to EW

The movie presents him neither as hero or villain. We just try to present who he is and let you make up your mind,” Condon says. “I think, in fact, he’s neither.”

Condon also said his film never got any government pressure or interference – a surprise given how much effort from the CIA and Pentagon put into understanding what kind of story Zero Dark Thirty planned to tell about the takedown of Osama Bin Laden.

“If you look at movies where that might have happened, they are movies that need something from the government, and that isn’t anything we did,” Condon says. “We had a few sources that worked in the State Department, but we weren’t asking for any special access, so there was no reason to engage them.”

Check out the trailer on EW.

Twilight Ranks 10 in Top Franchise Movies of All Time

The folks over at BuzzFeed (where you can see the full chart) cooked this one up. The figures are adjusted for inflation, which means Twilight seriously kicked butt over things like X-men, Star Trek, and Transformers. It’s also respectably neck-in-neck with the 4 Indiana Jones movies.
