To Rome With Love, via the Via Blogorosa: Hoping Sony Pictures Classics won’t mind, but this first trailer for Woody’s latest Eurologue is via Huffington Post who got it from TrailersAddicted, who lifted it from Yahoo! Movies, which still has its watermark on the image. But it’s all publicity among good friends, right?

    I never get why some Allen movies hit and others fail. I thought CASSANDRA’S DREAM was better than MATCH POINT, YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER at least as good as MIDNIGHT IN PARIS. For whatever it’s worth, I see this as a moderate hit–not up to PARIS levels, but better than VICKY CHRISTINA… You just never know with him. The title change, is for the worse, but will probably help sell tickets.

“Critics have said that I’ve made a career out of confounding expectations. Really? Because that’s all I do? That’s how I think about it. Confounding expectations. Like I stay up late at night thinking about how to do it. “What do you do for a living, man?” “Oh, I confound expectations.” You’re going to get a job, the man says, “What do you do?” “Oh, confound expectations. And the man says, “Well, we already have that spot filled. Call us back. Or don’t call us, we’ll call you.” Confounding expectations. I don’t even know what that means or who has time for it.”

“There was somebody from Creative Screenwriting Magazine who was here earlier, and she said ‘Have you got any advice for writers?’ and I said, ‘Yeah, write standing up’. Because this time around, I bought a cheap little stand off Amazon, and I wrote standing up, because it’s slightly uncomfortable – it’s not so uncomfortable that you can’t do it, it’s slightly uncomfortable. And it means you don’t end up going on the internet, basically, because you’re there to do a fucking job. So I’ll write for 25 minutes… then I’ll go and play on the PlayStation for a bit. And I do this all night. I go nocturnal. And then I go back and I’ll write a bit more, and then I go back to the PlayStation, and then I go back… And hopefully by then, I’ll lose track of time and then I’ll be writing for fucking ages, and then there’s a point where you get excited about it. So my advice for writers is always: write standing up, and get Scrivener, and write in 25 minute bursts, and get a PlayStation.”
