POSTER FOR Wes Anderson’s The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Between this, that indie abortion I posted this morning, and the Inglourious Basterds titles, I think it’s pretty clear that yellow title text is, like, the new thing.  It’s funny, because me and Zooey Deschanel were just talking about this at the opening of this new Vegan BBQ place over in DUMBO.  [full poster below, via FirstShowing]

MIKE JUDGE’S NEXT movie will be “Brigadier Gerard. It’s based on these short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle… So it’s kind of a big movie, I guess. It’s set during the Napoleonic Wars, where this character is kind of like Clouseau, similar to that.”  So basically, Napoleon asks Clouseau if he misses fighting in the Napoleonic Wars, and Clouseau says, “I vouldn’ say I’ve been meesing eet, Napoleon…”  [ThePlaylist]

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE has a new poster too.  Wow, it’s like hipster Christmas.  Thanks, Santa, I got everything I could ever want!  And yet I still feel vaguely dissatisfied…. [MSN]

COLIN HANKS TO PLAY a serial killer who wins the lottery, then sets off to win over his crush.  It’s good casting, because a serial killer who wins the lottery is pretty much the life story of this mouth-breathing oaf.  (I’m sure he’s nice, though, really). [Variety]

ROBERT DUVALL & BILL MURRAY star in Get Low, about a hermit who plans his own funeral party while he’s still alive.  Some guy was on the Adam Carolla podcast talking about how this porn producer Bobby Hollander did kind of the same thing, where he was dying of cancer so he planned his own wake party.  He asked the guy telling the story to bring him an eight ball, and the guy thought that was weird but did it because the guy was dying. Then when he showed up, he realized five or six other people had all brought eight balls upon request too.  I don’t really have anything to add to this, I just thought it was a good story.  If I get cancer, I’m definitely gonna make porn chicks bring me eight balls.

SPEAKING OF CULTS, here’s the trailer for Leslie, My Name is Evil, a movie about a juror who falls in love with a Manson family chick at her murder trial.  He’s a Jesus lover and she’s in a hippie murder cult.  Wow, so she’s totally hot but totally crazy?  Gosh, I can’t imagine such a dilemma.

LIONSGATE TAPS TYLER PERRY FOR RAINBOW.  This headline is f’cking with me, right? [Variety]
