    Watch: Early Oscars Front-Runner 'Vampires Suck' Gets A Trailer

    Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer are an enigmatic pair, to say the least. The writers/directors, who got their start with the "Scary Movie" franchise before going on to make the hits "Date Movie," "Epic Movie" and "Meet the Spartans" and "Disaster Movie," rarely give interviews, or give any kind of insight into their working process. Fortunately, with the upcoming release of "Twilight" spoof "Vampires Suck" on August 18th, the pair agreed to give The Playlist an exclusive peek into a day in the lives of Friedberg/Seltzer. You can watch the trailer below. [Movieline]

    Big Plans: Museum of the Moving Image

    Here's something to put in the "we're excited" file: The Museum of the Moving Image in Queens officially announced today the opening of its long-in-gestation transformation into a redesigned, expanded hot spot for New York cinema-lovers. Isn't it about time we had something like this? According to the press release, the $67 million state-of-the-art new building, designed by architect Thomas Leeser, will be unveiled on January 15, 2011. Okay, so that gives us a lot of time to prepare, but we'll need it for all the goodies they've got planned, which includes "Recovered Treasures," six weeks of newly restored classics and contemporary films from around the world; experimental, interactive digital showcases; large-scale video installations and animations; a late-night party full of interactive art; an Alain Resnais series; a recurring Hitchcock series; an avant-garde retrospective; and way more. Don't forget the most exciting part (to me, at least): the very cool-looking new 264-seat theater (see above). Read more about the project at indieWIRE.

    Best Emmy Nominations Ever?

    I was offline all day (a blissful recent regularity in my schedule), so being on the ball about this morning's Emmy announcement suffered as a result. But what a lovely surprise to come back to: Sure, there's definitely ample opportunity to have a bitch session... but let's focus on the positive: Kyle Chandler AND Connie Britton (finally!), Amy Poehler, the Best Comedy Series nominees, January Jones AND Christina Hendricks (finally!), Chris Cofler, Aaron Paul, Martin Short, EVERY "Modern Family" cast member EXCEPT Ed O'Neill, "Treme" directing nod, "Friday Night Lights" writing nod, and "The Tonight Show WIth Conan O'Brien"'s best variety series nod. I'd say this is one year that Emmy - who has often got things very wrong and/or very bizarre - generally got things quite right.

    Casting News: DiCaprio in Wolf, Washington in Safe House, Lost's Pellegrino Goes SyFy

    - Leonardo DiCaprio is teaming with Ridley Scott (not Scorsese, as once planned) for the screen adaptation of Jordon Belfort's memoir The Wolf of Wall Street, according to Deadline. The screenplay by Sopranos (and Boardwalk Empire) writer Terry Winter follows a head stockbroker (DiCaprio) as he leads his team in coaching clients to purchase stocks that fund their extravagant lives--until they get caught. Scott and DiCaprio are both busy: Scott's helming 3-D Alien prequel and DiCaprio is prepping a Hoover biopic, so it's unclear when Wolf will land on their schedules.
