Charlie Sheen in a leading role, with Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman in supporting roles in A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III. Judging by the pictures, it feels like a crazy roller coaster ride where everyone is high on drugs.

 First images of Charlie Sheen, Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman in Charles Swan III 
 In a rare break from his usual brand of headline-making antics, Charlie Sheen has uploaded a selection of snaps from the set of Roman Coppola’s A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III.

              Covering a mixture of on-screen and off-duty moments, its nice to see the troubled star back in gainful employment, and looking healthier than he’s done in a while.

Holy cannoli! Go to BestForFilm for more photos. Can’t wait to see Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Beautiful Girl With The Dragon Tattoo images online
A bunch of arty Girl With The Dragon Tattoo images have been released and we absolutely love them. Despite the fact they don’t really look like stills from the movie - especially the above image, unless Fincher’s boldly experimenting with Hipstamatic video cameras -  they still increase our anticipation levels by highlighting just how much Rooney Mara’s getting into character. Check ‘em out below and tell us what you think.

I had a great opportunity to learn about this unique project during a free transmedia forum held Film Society of Lincoln Center’s new Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center. Robot Heart Stories is a new project of Lance Weiler, who is behind 2011 Sundance hit Pandemic 1.0. Visit http://www.robotheartstories.com/ to learn more. If you would like to make a monetary contribution, you may do so here.

Get to know Lance Weiler by checking out his website and learn more about Pandemic 1.0!

vimeo:

Robot Heart Stories is the first in a trilogy of experiential learning projects from award winning storytelling visionary and experience designer Lance Weiler and creative producer Janine Saunders. Each project will inspire young and old alike to co-create and share. The goal is to reboot how we think about learning in an effort to unleash a collaborative journey into the future of education. The trilogy focuses on air, land and sea in three unique participatory storytelling initiatives designed to develop creativity, digital literacy and collaborative problem solving skills.

In part one of the trilogy a robot has crash landed in Montreal and now must make her way to LA in order to find her space craft and return home. Two class rooms in underprivileged neighborhoods, one in Montreal (French speaking) and the other in LA (English speaking) engage in an experiential learning project that utilizes math, science, history, geography and creative writing to place education directly in the hands of students. By using collaborative problem solving and creative writing the students help the Robot make her way across North America. The project concludes with an actual space launch!

That’s right, the robot, along with copies of the students stories and artwork, will board a commercial rocket that is headed to the space station later this fall. To learn more and support the project, visit here.

My Week With Marilyn Theatrical Trailer Released

Initially, Michelle Williams turned down the role of Marilyn Monroe, thinking Monroe is too different from her. I guess she came to her senses and took on the hard task of portraying one of the most famous and mysterious icons in Hollywood. It is said to be one of the few -if not the only- films that show Monroe as a human being, not just a caricature or a blonde sex symbol. The film is about “Colin Clark, an employee of Sir Laurence Olivier’s, documents the tense interaction between Olivier and Marilyn Monroe during production of The Prince and the Showgirl" (courtesy of IMDb). Directed by Simon Curtis, other actors and actresses include Kenneth Branagh as Laurence Olivier, much buzzed about Eddie Redmayne as Colin Clark, Dominic Cooper, Emma Watson and Judi Dench, as well as other talented cast members. There is a big buzz around Michelle Williams’ portrayal of Marilyn Monroe, so much so that she could be a strong Best Actress contender during the awards season. Film Society has a “Spotlight” blog post on why people should see the movie. It is worth checking out.

What do you think about the trailer? Do you still want to learn more about this relationship?

My Week With Marilyn opens November 4th in United States. However, Marilyn will have its World Premiere at the New York Film Festival, as the Centerpiece film. If you would like to be one of the few people to see it before the theatrical release, see it at New York Film Festival! Showtimes are October 9, at 6:30pm, 9pm and October 12, at 7pm.

THE BLOG IS BACK!

After months of silence due to moving and an intense schedule at Film Society of Lincoln Center, the blog is back! My apologies to everyone who was expecting regular posts over these few months but got nothing. Additionally, I would like to thank those of you who started following me, aka newcomers.

This first comeback post is not really related to film but it is an example of successful marketing, the power of Internet and word of mouth. A few weeks ago, PlayStation released a teaser called “‘Michael’ Live Long Play” with an apparent launch of a campaign on 10.5.2011. Yesterday, thanks to Kotaku, I quickly learned what is was: PlayStation’s way of thanking gamers (not just PS fans but all gamers) around the world with a trailer that includes some of the most famous characters from popular PlayStation games. Video games are basically useless without gamers, who give life to each character, build impressive fan communities and even able to influence developers. Sony, you’re too clever. Go to www.longliveplay.com for more information about the campaign.

Here is the trailer- if you can, watch it full screen in HD (preferably 1080p) for all its glory:

Exclusive Drive Red Band Trailer from IGN!

Ryan Gosling, Christina Hendricks, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Ron Perlman and Albert Brooks (as evil?!). What’s not to like about Drive? From IMDb: “A Hollywood stunt performer who moonlights as a wheelman discovers that a contract has been put on him after a heist gone wrong.” An upcoming movie from Nicolas Winding Refn, Drive is Ryan Gosling’s first action movie. He has broken our hearts and made us sob until our tears ran out. We sympathized with his characters’ quirky “habits.” Every girl has fallen in love with him in The Notebook. It seems like Gosling is expanding his repertoire this year with Crazy, Stupid, Love (opens today!) and Drive. I think he is a great actor.

Drive premiered at Cannes Film Festival in competition (!) and took home Best Director for Refn. In my opinion, it was definitely chosen as a wild-card for the competition but it was loved and lauded by critics and the general audience. Apparently, Drive got a 15 minute standing ovation at its premiere.

This trailer for Drive has the feeling of Steve McQueen car chase movies (Bullitt anyone?), with standout performances from the cast -especially Ryan Gosling. Can Gosling be the next McQueen? What would you name the nameless driver?

Drive opens on September 16, 2011.
