Multiplex #932: The Future

I suppose this title is plain enough that it doesn’t need to have come from a movie, but it does:

(I haven’t seen this movie, but the trailer made me make the same confused expression that Miranda July’s earlier Me and You and Everyone We Know did, so it felt appropriate for Katie.)

Multiplex #931: Quiet the Voices

As mentioned way back in #488, the dragon figure was a “Night Fury,” because the first wave of How to Train Your Dragon toys didn’t call him Toothless, and he didn’t have any of the harness that Hiccup made for him so that he could fly. For some reason.

Somerville Theatre Midnight Specials film series

Patreon backers got an early look at this, but one of the freelance projects I’ve done recently is movie-themeed, and I wanted to share it with you. It’s a poster for the Somerville Theatre’s upcoming Midnight Specials film series. (In Somerville, Mass.)

So if you’re in that area, definitely check out this film series starting later this month. And if you’re not, just dig on this poster I made for them. It was a hell of a lot of fun to do:

If you’d like to buy one of these, the theater — not me — is planning to sell them 11″x17″ posters for $14 and 24″x36″ posters for $30. (These are short, custom print runs, hence the premium cost.) Postage is included (for those of you hailing from the United States). Contact Ian Judge of FEI Theatres (ijudge at feitheatres.com) for more information!

And if you’re a theater manager interested in commissioning something like this for your theater, definitely shoot me an e-mail! (The “Contact Gordon” link in the footer is your friend.) http://dlvr.it/6CQrMr

Trailer Watch: Studio Ghibli’s When Marnie Was There teaser trailer

A teaser trailer of Studio Ghibli’s adaptation of Joan G. Robinson’s When Marnie Was There directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (Arrietty). It’s from Japanese TV, so there’s all kinds of graphics all over the screen, but hopefully a cleaner version will find its way online soon.

The song, by the way, is “Fine on the Outside,” sung by Priscilla Ahn. http://dlvr.it/6Bm2Mr

Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd, and Naomi Watts star in writer-director Ted Melfi’s St. Vincent, about a grumpy old man (Murray) who befriends the neighbor kid. There are a lot of familiar tropes in this story, but the dialogue and the cast seem solid enough to get past that. (Or at least it earned a few laughs from me.)

St. Vincent opens on October 24, 2014. http://dlvr.it/6BcWxV
