Where these people find the time I do not know but I sure am glad they do

For every movie Jeff Bridges works on, he takes photos throughout the production and then he makes a book which he gifts to the members of the cast and crew. Now we might not be lucky enough to lay our mitts on a physical version but he is Dude enough to put a virtual version on his website, JeffBridges.com. You can see the amazing True Grit one here. I think we can all agree that he’s quite the talented photographer.
Thanks to Will for giving me a poke about this!
Jeff Yorkes is an LA-based film editor and, in his spare time, he puts together really tremendous “Cinemashups” where he couples a fitting piece of music to a movie and re-edits it to really tie together. He’s been in touch to alert me to this- his genuinely amazing and hilarious mash-up of The Big Lebowski and Quincy Jones’s ‘The Dude’. Check it out below and pay attention to the lyrics and how Jeff has married them to the images.
Brilliant stuff! Here’s hoping he does more Coen brothers-related ones.
According to Empire, the wondrous Alan Rickman has joined Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz in the cast of the Coen brothers penned, Gambit. Rickman will play “the richest man in England” – the focus of the plot’s central scam. Also joining the cast is Tom Courtenay who will play a character called The Major.
I followed a tweet to this frankly awesome site, Reelizer, where artists submit their re-dos of movie posters. Obviously there are a bunch of Coen brothers inspired ones like the Hudsucker Proxy and Big Lebowski ones below.
These things are usually pretty bloody gorgeous and these are no exception. I found the two above plus ones for True Grit, No Country For Old Men, a crazy one for Raising Arizona and another for Lebowski and True Grit.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to apologise for being a bit lazy with the site over the last few months. Unfortunately real life has stepped in and got in the way. Normal service will, hopefully, be resumed very shortly.
Paramount have announced the released of the True Grit DVD and Blu-ray in the US of A- 7th June, in a BD/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack.

Good news for those of you outside of the US is that most of Paramount’s blu-ray releases so far have been region free. YAY! That’s really all there is to say at the moment. More when I have it.
