The Afternoon Read (3.03.09) Zack Snyder's 'golden rules,' more Malick details, and Pixar struggles with villainy
It's one of those days where I didn't get out of bed on time and then with my family leaving tomorrow and the roof leaking in one spot because of the solar water heater and me having to make certain phone calls by a certain time and... well, let's just say it took a while to get my traction. And then when I did open the browser and start looking around, at first it looked like a whole lot of nothing going on out there.
But then by the time I really got into it, I found a small avalanche worth of things to post. So by the time I get all of this written up and linked, I'm guessing this is an Afternoon Read. So be it. At least there's a lot that's worth discussing.
I'm interviewing Zack Snyder this afternoon, a real interview at length instead of the abbreviated video piece you can see on my interview page right now. I'm glad to have a second shot at him, because I feel like we just barely scratched the surface in our first talk. I'm glad I read about his "golden rules" before our conversation, since I'm hoping to make this next talk about the nuts-and-bolts of how you go about building out an entire world on film.
Have you seen the new "Public Enemies" poster?
How about that Vanity Fair photo gallery from their comedy issue?
