Check Out The Trippy Trailer For “Upside Down” Starring Kristen Dunst

Here is the official movie trailer for "Upside Down" starring Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess.

The movie takes place where 2 people meet and are caught between borders. One upside up and the other, you guessed it, upside down.

It is a different twist on the Romeo & Juliet story but quite trippy.

What do you think?-DocFB

R.E.M. Debut 2 New Videos For New Song From Greatest Hits

R.E.M. has just released 2 videos for "We All Go Back To Where We Belong" starring Kirsten Dunst and John Giorno.

I am kinda tripping on the videos and am underwhelmed.  Here is Michsel Stipe and others attempting to explain the videos and why they chose to film it the way they did.

R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe and co-director Dominic DeJoseph (who has directed previous films for R.E.M.) recruited actress Kirsten Dunst to star in one of the videos for "We All Go Back To Where We Belong." Dunst is a Golden Globe-nominated performer who has starred in such movies as Sophia Coppola's The Virgin Suicides, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Marie Antoinette, and the Spider-Man trilogy. She recently received the Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Actress for her role in the current film Melancholia, directed by Lars von Trier.

The other film stars iconic and legendary Dial-A-Poem artist/poet/activist John Giorno. Over the course of his notable career, Giorno has collaborated on several acclaimed projects with such luminaries as William S. Burroughs, Patti Smith, Laurie Anderson, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol and Glenn Branca. His work includes several books and multimedia poetry experiments and events. A career-spanning collection of his poems, entitled Subduing Demons in America: Selected Poems 1962-2007 was published in 2008. His first one-person gallery show, entitled Black Paintings and Drawings, was mounted at the Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery in New York in 2010.

Both black and white films for "We All Go Back To Where We Belong" capture their subjects in stark relief using a strong key light and shot with a stationary camera, an effect that Stipe describes as lending "gravity and beauty" to the proceedings.

These videos arrive on the heels of last years' successful Collapse Into Now Film Project, which featured films by artists for every song on the album. Stipe said of the new  project, "To be able to work with John and Kirsten was a dream I carried since we recorded the song, and their participation completes the song for me." 

These are the "last" videos we will see from R.E.M. for a while.  Should it have been different?-DocFB

Marvel Films and Sam Rami are parting ways which means Tobey Macguire & Kirsten Dunst will no longer appear in Spider-Man 4 or any other Spider-Man movie.   There was talk that John Malkovich was going to play "The Vulture" villian in the scrapped film, which Rami wanted, while Marvel wanted a story with the "The Black Cat" villian. 

What will happen now is a reboot of the film.  In all honesty, the first 2 movies were great.  The 3rd tried to do too much and screwed up the franchise......

The Fox hit show "Glee" has been renewed for another season.  Only surprise is why in heaven did Fox take so long to announce it's coming back?.....

Mel Gibson felt the need to talk about Tiger Woods and let Tiger know he feels his pain.  Tiger's response.  Please, Mel, you don't and don't speak for me. I am an adulterer who likes waitresses and not someone who gets drunk and turns racist......

David Hasselhoff is leaving "America's Got Talent" and is being replaced by Howie Mandell.  No word yet if Howie will replace David's drunken adventures.......
