Another weekend gone, but, as usual, we are here to help you through the work week! Check out what our staff has been enjoying recently.
- First, at Birth. Movies. Death., Priscilla Page writes about the relationship between Rocky Balboa and Apollo Creed throughout the Rocky series, along with some interesting context on their real-life influences.
- Michael Mann announced the launch of Michael Mann Books, an imprint that will gather a group of writers to crank out a series of novels that will simultaneously be adapted to film. And one of the first of these is said to be a prequel to Heat.
- At The Washington Post, Nicholas Lund discusses how Hollywood gets birds wrong, and why we are unlikely to see native species in any film made in the US.
- Our own Diego Crespo applied his editing skills to the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer, and created Batman <3 Superman, complete with Seal’s, “Kiss from a Rose.”
- Finally, for those happily anticipating Easter next weekend, here is a tutorial for making a Frank the Bunny mask from Donnie Darko, so you can add to the growing body of creepy Easter bunny photos.
That’s all we have this week, but be sure to check back next Monday for more of the best movie stuff from the rest of the Internet!
