Intermission: Ebert on Bette Davis & Smoking, Wall Street Sequel, Summer ’09 Movie Preview, Pixar’s Up

Bette Davis got her own postage stamp last month, but there was a funny thing about her picture. The portrait was adapted from a screen grab out of All About Eve, and I say adapted because, although Davis is clearly holding her hand so as to accomadate the lit cigarette in it, the cigarette itself is missing from the picture. Ebert comments.

It looks like someone is writing a script for a sequel to Wall Street which will again feature Gordon Gekko. The current title is Money Never Sleeps. Apparently greed is good . . . there’s just one question: Why? (From Hollywood Reporter.)

Daily Plastic brings us a glorious preview of next summer’s bumper crop of fantastic sequels, prequels, remakes, and movies based on old TV shows in, not one, but two jam-packed parts. Don’t miss it!

Finally, what you really don’t want to miss (if you haven’t seen it already . . . it’s been around) is the teaser for Pixar’s next: Up.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
