The highly stylized noir graphic novel is getting a second shot at the box office. The original 2005 ‘Sin City’ was stunning in its jump from page to screen; Frank Miller’s source material never looked better. For the sequel he and Robert Rodriguez bring us back to Basin City and crank up everything. The look is just as stunning. Here’s all they are saying so far about this one:

The Brass Teapot

 

Here is the official plot synopsis for this one:

Juno Temple & Michael Angarano in 'The Brass Teapot'

Juno Temple & Michael Angarano in ‘The Brass Teapot’

“The Brass Teapot feature film is a supernatural comedy starring Juno Temple and Michael Angarano, based on the comic book series about a broke, mid-twenty year old couple who, in these difficult economic times, find a mysterious and magical brass teapot which gives them money every time they (or others) are hurt near it. After realizing the teapot’s powers, John and Alice must decide how far they will go to fulfill their dream.”

Like I said before, I like originality, and this seems pretty original. It is based off of a comic which is based on a short story. Both the comic and the short story are written by Tim Macy and Ramaa Mosley… who just happen to be the writer and director (respectively) of this movie. What a kawinkydink.

Throw in the acting talents of Juno Temple and Michael Angarano and this looks like a hoot. The film had a limited release already so be on the lookout for a wider release or coming to your favorite VOD spot.

 

 

 

Killer Joe

 

 

This looks brilliant. Most people don’t like him, but I enjoy the McConaughey, and he looks pitch perfect in this. It appears to be a nice divergence from his typical roles. The plot looks solid as well. Money is owed, a plot is hatched and inevitable things go wrong. My movie ticket bill for the years is quickly adding up.
