Tilda Swinton Lands the Cover of W Magazine

You know, there’s just something about Tilda Swinton that totally freaks me out and attracts me at the same time. She’s got this weird sort of Clockwork Orange-type vibe (especially in this shoot) that makes her androgynous, ethereal, and frankly, compelling to look at. Her recent W spread is definitely not an exception, either.

One of Swinton’s latest films in production is Die Blutgräfin, in which she plays the Countess Elizabeth Báthory, the woman who was accused of slaughtering countless young girls and also allegedly bathed in the blood of virgins to retain her youthful visage.

Making a movie about Elizabeth Báthory is definitely an interesting move, and I think it’s going to be creepy as hell.  As far as the selection of Tilda in the lead role? Well. Need I say that she definitely fits the part quite well.

Just Because: Breckin Meyer’s Uncomfortable Sibling Rivalry

A casual Breckin Meyer on March 15, 2011

In total non-news, here’s the weirdest interview ever: G4′s Frank Meyer interviews his more-famous brother, Franklin and Bash‘s Breckin Meyer. Frank was strong-armed by his bosses into conducting the interview, because he obviously does not want to be there. It’s kind of horrible. But cute!

This video might be NSFW for language? I’m not really sure? Two “effs” are bleeped, but one isn’t, maybe? Also, I can’t tell whether these two brothers actually hate each other? I have so many questions?

If you need to cleanse your palate, here is Seth Meyers along with his brother Josh on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in April. It’s, um, a little less vitriolic.

More New Movies You Should Probably See: Contagion

What do you get when you take A-list actors and actresses like Gwyneth Paltrow, Laurence Fisburne, Jude Law, Marion Cotillard, Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, AND the goofy-looking-but-hot dude who played ‘Bugsy’ in The Perfect Storm and force them all into an epic disaster-type movie? Um, pure cinematic gold if you ask me.

The above trailer is for a new movie that’ll hit theaters later this year, Contagion, and follows the cast through “[a] threat posed by a deadly disease.” It sounds like it’s going to be a higher-profile production of The Stand, just without the religious undertones and total lack of awesome that is Stephen King’s film adaptions.

I don’t know about you guys, but I just love me some good, old-fashioned disaster movies. I mean, The Day After Tomorrow? Ugh, loved it. And if we’re lucky, this movie might just be even BETTER.

Will you guys be queuing up to see it come September?
