How different will Chalamet’s Paul Atreides be compared to Kyle MacLachlan’s portrayal? Do you think Chalamet is the right casting choice?

Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles Finally Gets a Home at AMC

Breaking news – if you’re a fan of Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles, this is a huge move forward for the franchise

Vulture has released an article apparently confirming that Anne Rice’s two most famous bodies of work; The Vampire Chronicles and The Mayfair Witches are now the property of the AMC network.

Via Vulture dot com:

After several years of patiently waiting to be invited into a network’s garlic-free home, the original queen of sexy vampire literature, Anne Rice, is finally coming to the small screen. AMC announced today that it has acquired Rice’s “major literary works” of The Vampire Chronicles series and The Lives of the Mayfair Witches series, which will be adapted in whatever way the network deems the best fit. (Say, a limited or multi-season TV show.) These two series encompass 18 renown titles in total, which include Interview With the Vampire, The Witching Hour, and The Vampire Lestat. 

This is fantastic news because the franchise is just a beautiful body of work. But there are some reservations such as who will get to play the legendary characters of Lestat de Lioncourt and Louis? Those will be massive shoes to fill.

How excited are you about this news? Let us know in the comments!

I’m going to start writing trailer “reviews”

There are a heap of people who do this already, so it’s not a new thing, but I’ve always wanted to write something short and sweet about my thoughts on a particular movie by only watching the trailer.

There are a heap of people who do this already, so it’s not a new thing, but I’ve always wanted to write something short and sweet about my thoughts on a particular movie by only watching the trailer. That way, it can be entertaining when you finally see the movie and compare your trailer notes – how far off was I or how close? You know? That might be fun, right?

If you haven’t been able to tell already, movies are a very BIG part of my life. To give you an indication of just how big, here are some stats – they’re not that impressive because I did have a considerable hiatus away from writing on Letterboxd and writing film reviews in general. But I’m back with a bang and really excited for the future!

2019

Jules Jules’s year to date

JanDec 2019

  • 43 Films watched
  • 4.3 Average per month
  • 1 Average per week

So I think looking very briefly at trailers that are getting released might be really interesting. I’ll start this tomorrow (I usually watch between 1 and 4 trailers any given day).
