Community plays dress-up again this week, to middling results. Here's our review of Intro To Recycled Cinema...
This review contains spoilers.
6.8 Intro To Recycled Cinema
“We keep filming crap and eventually Annie will reach down her shirt for a laser bomb.”
We're sure that there's something in this episode of Community that wishes it was Chris Pratt. Popular, attractive and seemingly well-maintained as he is, the Parks & Rec regular turned movie star comes in for a whole lot of affectionate flak in an episode that's not exactly the leanest or sharpest marquee leader of the season.
In a sixth season that's been rather more grounded than the high concept super-dystopic romps of yesteryear, Intro To Recycled Cinema is the first episode since the premiere that's found an excuse to dress up the cast and throw them into a role-playing situation.

James Franco got high. Luke Wilson cried. Ethan Hawke killed innocent people. Suffice to say, things took a turn for the deadly serious in downtown NYC for this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Good thing these talented and strong actresses were onhand to save the day. Here's Us Weekly movie critic Mara Reinstein's take: Olivia Wilde: At the outset of Meadowland, she’s the Wilde we’ve come to love: Sunny and caring. But after her son goes missing at a gas station, she dives head-first into a black hole [...] »

Christopher Nolan and wife Emma Thomas on the Oscars' Red Carpet Christopher Nolan and wife Emma Thomas at the Academy Awards A very blasé-looking Christopher Nolan, shortlisted as one of the producers of Best Picture Oscar nominee Inception and as the writer of the film's original screenplay, arrives with his wife and fellow Inception producer Emma Thomas at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Of course, Christopher Nolan also directed Inception, but he was not included in the Academy's Best Director shortlist. Instead, nominated were: David Fincher for The Social Network. Darren Aronofsky for Black Swan. Joel and Ethan Coen for True Grit. David O. Russell for The Fighter. Tom Hooper, the eventual winner, for The King's Speech. In case the incredibly successful British filmmaker was disappointed, angered, or downright outraged at being bypassed one more time by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts »

Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson on the Oscars' Red Carpet Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The 95-year-old Wallach had received an Honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in November 2010.

The Aviator introduces his new friend to an extraordinary world where anything is possible. A world that he himself was initiated into long ago by The Little Prince (newcomer Riley Osborne).

Coming form King Fu Panda director Mark Osborne, 3D animation/stop motion mix The Little Prince offers a modern twist on the classic children's book by Antoine Saint-Exupery, telling the tale of a pilot who crashes in the Sahara desert, and meets a young Prince who has travelled from his home on a distant asteroid on a journey to meet people from other planets and hear their stories. Boasting an amazing voice cast, including Jeff Bridges, Mackenzie Foy, Ricky Gervais, Marion Cotillard, Paul Rudd, Benico del Toro, and James Franco, this looks absolutely beautiful, with the promise of an incredibly emotional story at its core. I will admit to feeling a bit teary eyed as the trailer reached its joyous crescendo. This will definitely be one to delight adults and kids alike. There is no Irish or American release date as of yet, but it is expected to come our »

Need a little animation fix between your Cannes films? It seems like this could be the answer.
The new, international trailer for The Little Prince was released on Monday and it offers a preview at one of the year’s more imaginative animated films. The movie is set to premiere out of competition at the Cannes Film Festival.
Featuring the voice talents of Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, James Franco, Marion Cotillard, Jeff Bridges, Benicio Del Toro, Paul Giamatti, Ricky Gervais, and Mackenzie Foy, The Little Prince follows the story of a pilot crashes in the desert and meets a little boy from a distant planet. The story was first published in 1943 by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
The latest trailer dives more into the story than the first one and seems to illustrate the imagination that is going into this adaptation. It seems to be blending both digital CGI with some other animation styles such as stop-motion, »

One of the most well-loved children’s stories of all-time is bound for the big screen. The latest adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s novella The Little Prince hails from King Fu Panda helmer Mark Osborne, who takes a few liberties with the popular source material for his vision. But to be frank, with trailers this captivating and visually adventurous, it’s unlikely anyone will have cause for complaint.
The Little Prince tells the story of an Aviator whose plane crashes in the desert, which is where he meets the titular prince from an asteroid-sized planet whose day trip to Earth is part of his exploration of the galaxy. One of those aforementioned changes tying together the movie is a wraparound story that’s made apparent in this new preview. Featuring a young girl and her next-door neighbor, it’s a slight adjustment that shouldn’t sully the gloriousness of the stop-motion animation on display. »

Tribeca Festival coverage. Here's Joe Reid, who you know and love from the podcast...
We sometimes joke around about James Franco's insane output over the last five years -- he's been in Well Over 30 movies since 127 Hours, with a whopping 21 of them playing film festivals. That's an average of five films a year playing in some festival or another.
For a lesser-known actor, this kind of heavy indie output might be a better idea. Throw yourself into as many projects as possible, increasing your odds that one of them will hit. Franco's already established, though. He's had his hits. What starring in so many festival indies does for him it's the opposite: it ups his odds that he'll end up in at least a few total stinkers, every year. It's gotten to the point where Franco's presence in an indie feels like the promise of disappointment. »

Osborne's animated adventure will have its world premiere at the 68th Cannes Film Festival out of competition next month.
A new international trailer for "The Little Prince" takes viewers on a fantastical voyage, offering breathtaking visuals and evoking lots of heartstring tugging along the way.
The flick is the first feature-length, animated adaptation of the classic French novella, "Le Petit Prince," by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, and boasts a stellar voice cast that includes Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, James Franco, Marion Cotillard, and Benicio Del Toro.
The full synopsis, per Variety:
The multilayered animated tale centers around a little girl (Mackenzie Foy) who lives with her mother (McAdams) and gets initiated by her eccentric yet kind-hearted neighbor, the Aviator (Bridges), into a magical world where anything is possible - a world that the Aviator himself was initiated into long ago by the Little Prince (played by newcomer Riley Osborne).
That "multilayered" descriptor also applies to the film's animation itself, which is a mix of different media, including computer animation and intricate, »

Jonah Hill leads True Story as Michael Finkel, a disgraced New York Times reporter who can’t score a new job after he’s caught massaging story details. Soon after heading home to his wife Jill (Felicity Jones) in Montana, Mike gets word that accused killer Christian Longo (James Franco) is using his identity. Rather than steer clear of the supposed murderer, Mike suspects that writing a book about Christian could help him get his career back on track. Jill knows something isn’t quite right, but even she becomes intoxicated by Christian and his story. With the film now playing in theaters, I recently got the opportunity to sit down with Jones to discuss how she approached bringing this true story to screen. We talked about her meetings with the real Jill, her experience working with Hill, Franco and director Rupert Goold and how the set itself reflects Jill »

Ripped from the headlines, it is not as good as “Capote,” but close enough.Debut feature director Rupert Goold pulled one out of the hat with this amazingly entertaining dual of wits, and lies, between two men who are world class in the art of deception. At the heart of the film is the weakness of the human soul when it comes to sorting out right from wrong and success from failure. As the semi-honest reporter Michael Finkel (Jonah Hill) matches wits with sociopath Christian Longo (James Franco) the audience is at wits end to decide who is the bearer of […] »
