1. Sin City 2 trailer debuts, and Frank Miller hints Sin City 3

yesterday marked the release of the full trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the film coming out on August 22nd and all, well many of your favorites are back in technicolor black & white: Mickey Rourke as Marv, Bruce Willis as Hartigan, Jessica Alba as Nancy, Rosari oDawson as Gail, Jaime King as Goldie.. But now on board: Joseph Gordon Levitt, Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Ray Liotta, Lady Gaga…you know, this is going to be great fun. When the first Sin City came out in 2005 is exploded like a visual bomb in Hollywood’s mind; although everyone rightly credits Blade, Spider-Man and Dark Knight as the films that embedded the graphic novel in Hollywood’s mind, it was Sn City that added he oomph and artistry, the never-seen-THAT-before. Repugnantly brutal, it was nonethelss one of the most influential comcis films of all times, and as a testament to that is just how much of the original’s visual lexicon has become regular fare.

BUT the trailer still looks VERY neat.

And to delebrate it, creaor and co-director Frank Miller did an AMA on REddit. It’s the first public interview he’s done in quite some time, and givan the often messy nature of some of his Holy Terror era statements, it was good to see Miller (or his assistant actually) typing smartly and answering all kinds of questions. (But not some of the more controversial ones.) IN one answer, he talks about just what he did on the long delayed Sin City 2:

Yes I do. I absolutely ADORE the job. It’s a perfect contrast to my cartooning. In my cartooning I work with absolute freedom, and am able to create things out of whole cloth that I can then develop and work until they become a complete entity. This opens up a world of possibilities how something can be filmed. It also closes out a world of mistakes that can be made. For 300, even though I had seen the original 20th Century Fox movie, I decided I would do the story myself when I was old and good enough. I waited until I was 40, and then decided it was time to stop talking bout it and start doing it. And re-interpreted it VASTLY, having no intention of it turning into a movie, it’s very funny that the things i have no idea of turning into a movie end up becoming that way. I was thrilled with the results. As a matter of fact, my involvement in Sin City 2 right now is mainly I’m working with Robert, I’m sort of ad libbing on the edit, I’m saying “let’s lose this scene, let’s keep this shot” but he’s such an expert editor he doesn’t need that much help. But I am able to help work on the characters a bit more, and make the entire thing feel very Sin City, because it has a very particular tone to it, a very particular intent. I don’t talk too much about what Sin City is because it’s really my secret. Meanwhile, the other thing I’m eager to do and I’ve got plans (in my head anyway) for Sin City 3 – that will of course be subject to me and Robert having countless lengthy and productive arguments.

Of course he says he’d like to make a third movie…or write Captain America again. No controversy there. And no mention of Xerxes, which was supposed to be the tie-in to 300: Rise of an Empire…which also starred Eva Green, come to think of it. I guess she’s the Frank Miller Go To Icon.

5. Lady Gaga & Greyson Chance

What's everyone up to this weekend? Anyone getting in the Christmas spirit or totally over it? I walked down an avenue block last night after picking up food and so many gorgeous lights and displays were up. I'm like a little kid--they make me SO happy. I live in a very diverse neighborhood and it's interesting to see how each culture decorates for Christmas. There was a Puerto Rican parade today that went down my street, though, I don't think it had anything to do with Xmas. ;)

I'm totally bumming around this weekend. Recovering from post-finishing a book hangover. Next book--COMEBACK--isn't due until March, so I've got some time to chill. I intended to start working on a project today, but chose to read (Ruthless--Pretty Little Liars #10), Teen Vogue, Glamour and some other fun mags lying around.

(CHECK those shoes! I'd *never* be able to stand in them!)

Did anyone catch yesterday's Ellen? Lady Gaga and Greyson Chance we on. First, I adore Greyson! Kate and I saw him the very first time he appeared on Ellen singing "Paparazzi." She discovered him singing that on YouTube, brought him on, signed him to her record label and well, you probably know more than I do about him now. ;) He's such a cutie!

It came full circle for him because he got to meet the artist whose song he played that got HIM a record deal. :)



I loved Lady G's "Marry the Night" performance. She also had some of the best one liners I've heard from her. I've always been insanely inspired by her work ethic. The song, too, is about making the choice to commit to your work or give up. She's barely a year older than me and the girl works hard. She said, "People ask me when I'm gonna take a vacation. I'm like, 'I didn't get into signing to sit under a palm tree.'" That's kind of how I feel about writing. I'm "married" to my work because I love it so much. I'm happy to work long hours (except when my wrist or arm hurt! Bleh!) and I want to put everything I have into what I'm doing. That's for you guys--the readers--Team Canterwood.  

Here's her performance if you want to watch. :) Fill me in on what you're all up to this weekend!

xoxo

22. Lady Gaga & Terry Richardson Team Up for New Book

Grand Central Publishing will publish a “remarkable collaboration” between photographer Terry Richardson and Lady Gaga. Coming out November 22, Lady Gaga will feature 350 photographs by Richardson and an introduction by Lady Gaga (pictured, via).

Working in association with Atom Factory, William Morris Endeavor Entertainment negotiated the deal with publisher Jamie Raab. The publisher billed the book as a “visual dialogue” between the pop star and the photographer–Richardson has snapped 100,000 images of Gaga.

Here’s more from the release: “the book will showcase over 350 color and black and white photographs taken during the 10 month period in which Richardson followed Lady Gaga and had complete access to her everyday life, with nothing being off limits. Beginning with Lollapalooza in August 2010 to the February 2011 Grammy Awards which had 26.66 million viewers, (the highest viewership in over a decade) to the final shows of her Monster Ball tour which averaged an attendance of 90,000 people each day, Richardson brilliantly captures the intimate, random, behind-the-scenes moments of Lady Gaga in both her professional and personal life.”
