Welcome to The Morning Read.
I have a tendency to overdo these on Monday morning and be totally out of things to post by Friday, so let's try to make this a solid but not ridiculous one.
Here's a question: why is it okay to ruin Lars Von Triers's "Anti-Christ" in every single article written about it? Whether someone likes a film or not is irrelevant. There are some things you don't reveal about a movie, especially one that won't be out in the U.S. until October.

They're both good reads after you've seen the movie, but not before. Heck, even the name of the first article is a huuuuuuuuge spoiler for the film.
I like this interview a lot. I like it when people interview below-the-line crew who wouldn't normally get interviewed. You can hear great stories if you do that.
Great interview on AICN by Mr. Beaks, talking to Matthew Vaughn about where "Kick-Ass" is at the moment.
A Soderbergh sequel to "The Limey," with Terence Stamp again? Yes, please. There seems to be some disagreement about whether the proposed co-star of the film is Michael Caine or Michael Keaton, but either way, I'm curious, and ready to see how they'd follow-up one of my favorite of Soderbergh's movies.

But Aziz has been working out with this character for a while now, and he actually shot a documentary about the character, and Funny Or Die has part one now:
