Stale Popcorn Glenn, our favorite fellow fan of Burlesque, has words about the proposed Diane Warren jukebox musical. So many Oscar nominated power ballads from that one!
In Contention on the new Les Miz trailer. Why haven't I written it up, you ask? I can only write about Les Miz so often people and the movie isn't even out yet. Plus I already did a Yes No Maybe So once and my policy is not to repeat that with a single movie... I mean, some movies release five trailers, people!

TODAY'S MUST WATCH

I thought about writing a review of the revival of Annie on Broadway but Adam Feldman's Time Out Review is so incredibly spookily spot on on ever single point I might have made (seriously go and read it)  that it's not worth writing my own -- hate it when that happens! So Annie is in my brain currently and "Tomorrow" is the only song that's battling "I Dreamed a Dream" for earworm revival of 2012. I nabbed the video above from my friend Tom's Broadway Blog. He's always worth a read and he finds the most incredible videos. This one is the musical comedienne Christina Bianco doing various über famous divas doing Annie. They may as well cast Bianco right now in an American remake of Little Voice (1998) she's so good at impersonating other vocalists!

The Tomorrow clip is genius. Gen-ie-us!

I love when McConaughey says "Let's not intellectualize things.". I mean, does he ever?

Everyone but Remayne sounds awful in the new trailer.

November 10, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

Amanda -- i'm reserving judgement till we see it in context but yes, Anne sounds less spectacular this time.

November 10, 2012 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

Love that clip! Christina Bianco is amazing and so funny. I want to run right out and see her perform.

November 10, 2012 | Unregistered Commenteradri

Ok this quote makes me want to root for Jennifer Lawrence even though I'm not a fan.

RE: Les Miz...clearly my ears aren't working because I thought Hathaway sounded better this time around. And Russell Crowe's singing wasn't as awful as I expected (I still don't like him, though). The camera work bothers me more than anything, I'm not sure the wide angle lens route was the best way to go.

November 10, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterthefilmjunkie

Agreed, Amanda. That second trailer killed half of the excitement that I had for the film.

But mostly, I really hope they go with the quieter version of "I Dreamed a Dream"-- the one from the first trailer, not the second.

November 10, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEvan

Wow, Christina's Celine is spot on...very funny and impressive.

November 11, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLove me...forever

DDL can be SO funny sometimes. This actually reminded me of my favorite awards show moment of all time, which involves Robin Williams, DDL, and Jack Nicholson at the Critics' Choice Awards in 2002/3, I think. Please youtube it if you haven't.

Most perfect Bernadette Peters impersonation, EVER.
