Is This Animated ‘Looper’ Trailer Truly Loopy?

The wait is almost over for Rian Johnson’s time-traveling mind-bender Looper (It opens Friday), but the producers are determined to make that wait seem as long as possible by introducing a unique animated trailer for the flick.

I know that anyone without prior knowledge of the film will not be able to make heads or tails of this trailer, but by incorporating a lot of different animation styles and constant motion and conflict, the wordless trailer gives the impression of a wild action movie with stunning visuals. I hope the real thing turns out to be just as good as this makes it look. I can hardly wait for the weekend!

BBC Plans Teary Treat for Stricken Pond Fans

Assuming one can still see through the tears after “The Angels Take Manhattan” has brought the first half of the DOCTOR WHO season — and the tale of Amy and Rory — to a close, visit the official BBC Doctor Who page for The Last Days of the Ponds, an official tribute video.

Here is what the BBC is promising:

The Last Days of the Ponds is a touching 12-minute video that features Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, head writer and Executive Producer Steven Moffat and Executive Producer Caro Skinner. Poignant and insightful, it tells their story, from the very start to the teary goodbyes.

With exclusive backstage material from their early days together right up to behind-the-scenes footage of their final shots, The Last Days of the Ponds gives you unprecedented access to an era of Doctor Who, but more than this, it reveals how the people involved feel about their characters and their friends, their time on the show, what they’ll miss and remember, and how Amy and Rory’s swansong moved them all.

Karen, Arthur and Matt recall meeting each other for the first time and share anecdotes about their friendship. What did they think of each other at first, and what did Arthur consider to be a nightmare? Which days does Karen call the craziest of all, and how was Matt feeling when it came to shooting the Ponds’ departure?

The laughter, tears, heartbreak and joy are all captured forever in The Last Days of the Ponds.

Can you believe the Doctor’s journeys with the Ponds have come to an end? What will you miss most about Amy and Rory?
