Columbia Pictures and MGM hosted the world premiere of The Pink Panther 2 Movie at the Ziegfeld Theatre last night. The cast, including Steve Martin, all showed up (many with family in tow).
This past Friday saw the premiere of "The Moment I Died", director Vince Zambrano's newest short flick which showed at the Wings Project on the lower east side. Comedy this aint; "The Moment I Died" is a tearjerker, managing to maintain its serious tone even when the movie's protagonist, James, stands totally nude before the camera, his elmer's glue like buttocks perfectly silhouetted by the sunset.
Any movie that can do that for five seconds and not elicit a giggle gets my approval.

Dakota Fanning is all grown up! And she is a better dresser than all of her older cast mates.
Hounddog has made it to the big screen and it's NYC premiere was last night at the Village Theatres. You remember Hounddog, the movie that premeired at last years Sundance and caused a big debate regarding the "rape" scene that 14 year old Dakota Fanning acted in. This is the second time Robin Wright Penn has worked on a Deborah Kampmeier movie involving a rape; the first was the 2003 film Virgin. I haven't seen a photo of Dakota in awhile, but this girl is well on her way to being a woman.
New York, I Love You is an upcoming romance film set to be released in February 13, 2009. From the producers of Paris, je t'aime, it stars an ensemble cast, among them Orlando Bloom, Natalie Portman, Christina Ricci, Hayden Christensen, Shia LaBeouf, Irrfan Khan and Kevin Bacon. The film premiered at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival in September, 2008.
I've always been intellectually drawn to the "expat" life, but have only tasted bits and pieces over the years. A cigar in the back corner of the Bamboo Bar in Bangkok, a not-quite-24-hour jaunt to London for a brief meeting in the English countryside, and living vicariously through friends overseas via facebook status updates and photo tags, has kept me occupied enough to stay rooted in New York for the time being. However, I couldn't help but perk up as I watched Vicky (Rebecca Hall) and Cristina (Scarlett Johansson) explore Barcelona, and long for my own summer spent in search of Gaudi, rioja, and self-awareness.
"Facebook: The Awful, Awful Movie will tell the story of how Mark Zuckerberg invented binary digits as a toddler and the web browser in his Harvard dorm in 2004, and how every single person in the world joined up by 2007 to play Scrabulous Wordscraper. The planned sequel, to be filmed simultaneously, tells how Facebook solves conflict in the Middle East, cures breast cancer and, in Soviet Russia, pokes you."
Everyone's talking about Aaron Sorkin's, (the man behind some of our favorite TV shows and movies like The West Wing, Sports Night, A Few Good Men) new project - a Facebook movie - and he used Facebook to do it! Which got us to thinking; who will play main character Mark Zuckerberg? Luckily, we are not the only ones thinking about it - Valleywag and CNET have weighed in with the most comprehensive lists (this from Paul Carr is the weirdest) - their favorites (and one of our own) are above.
Funny thing, we ran Zuckerberg's photo through the facematching section of myheritage.com, and we got this:
