    Let the Toronto presales begin

  2. Edward Wilson says:

    Is that supposed to be a 40 oz. or something? Cause it looks like a liter of Diet Coke…

  3. David Poland says:

    That would be 2 liters of soda, EW.

  4. krazyeyes says:

    The blurring on the Diet Coke label is very distracting plus i’m not sure I get making the poster look like a book cover.

  5. Edward Wilson says:

    I don’t drink soda. I wouldn’t know these things.

  6. anghus says:

    why is one 2 liter soda bottle (the one in her hand) the old rounded style and the one on the night stand the newer old-school coke bottle shaped plastic bottle.

    this is weird.

  7. hcat says:

    The book cover is a little too cutesy but I do like the image. All the caffine containers surrounding a bottle of Grey Goose give the impression that she crossed that age where severe hangovers are still bearable yet she is not yet giving up the lifestyle.

  8. Paul MD (Stella's Boy) says:

    Jennifer’s Body > Juno. Here’s hoping Young Adult > Jennifer’s Body.

  9. Don R. Lewis says:

    The book cover is because the main character is either a person who gained popularity for writing teen fiction for girls or was a popular teen fiction writer as a teen, I can’t remember which it was.

  10. palmtree says:

    The term “young adult” is a lit genre, and so the parody book cover is a brilliant marketing design.

Six rules for filmmaking from Mike Nichols
1. The careful application of terror is an important form of communication.
2. Anything worth fighting for is worth fighting dirty for.
3. There’s absolutely no substitute for genuine lack of preparation.
4. If you think there’s good in everybody, you haven’t met everybody.
5. Friends may come and go but enemies will certainly become studio heads.
6. No one ever lost anything by asking for more money.

“I expected ‘Salesman’ to take the step backward every day that Chekhov and Beckett did — but no, it was there to help all the time. The circumstances are like a brick shithouse, they are so solid. You can’t really be satisfied, but I am pretty close to it because the cast took it and ran. They get better every day. I’ve never seen anything like that before, and I don’t know if I’ll ever see it again. Is my ambition sated? I don’t know. To get something right, it can’t be sated because you can’t ever get enough of it right—and even if it is right, it won’t stay right. That’s the thing about a play. But with ‘Salesman,’ it’s different. I don’t know how, but they just keep getting better each night. I really don’t think I’ll direct another play. This is as good a time as I’ve ever had, and I don’t want to fuck it up.”
