Black Snake Moan is Craig Brewer's follow-up to Hustle and Flow and the trailer for it leaked onto the 'Net so check out Christina like you've never seen her before. Looks like a wretched shoot to make this film, but maybe she'll deservedly get some respect at the award shows in '07.

The Addams Family Volume 1
I watched a little bit of The Addams Family - Volume One recently out on DVD and I am very impressed with the quality of the picture and the quality of the commentary. There is an on-camera interview with John Astin and other great special features including details about the creator of The Addams Family in print, Charles Addams. It's going for a great price that is worth every penny.
You may also be interested in the new and first Charles Addams biography by Linda H. Davis. NPR interviewed her recently.

I read great stuff other day about that new Christina Ricci movie, Penelope, where the reviewer wrote, "Ricci, playing against type with refreshing results, treats Penelope's voyage of discovery without any winks or nods to the audience. Her Penelope is a sweet-natured, surprisingly well-adjusted woman who yearns for love. Her real problem is not the snout but overprotective parents." The film also stars Peter Dinklage, Richard E. Grant, Catherine O'Hara, James McAvoy and Reese Witherspoon.
And in this interview I'm pleased to read that the co-producer calls Penelope the "anti-Barbie" movie.
There is no official release date, but hopefully before long we'll see this lovely fairy tale-like movie.
NEW EDIT: There are now pictures online!

Run as fast as lightning...
Run, now, don't walk, don't take one more bite... the new W magazine is out and it is THICK and still only $5 in the US: CHRISTINA RICCI has a big article in it with frameable photos... I may have to buy a second copy to take apart the pages and frame some in a gorgeous collage. She's the best version of a flapper girl that's come around in several years. The whole issue is great, showing off the new dark, mod fashions for Fall and Winter 2007.
One of the things she says in the article is that she's not allowed to buy any more fur... hmm, I hope that means not keeping any of it and wearing it because this cover is the only part of this issue that disappoints me. People have to stop promoting fur and leather as glamorous.
They've also got to do something about allowing Naomi into a photo shoot wearing a bikini without getting waxed first...(pg. 515). At least there are solutions to the unsightly other fur. Of course, maybe no one will dare to get near her after she's assaulted all of her help.

Osment did NOT see the mailbox
Here we go, Haley Joel Osment hit a mailbox and now everyone will be joking that he can see dead people but he cannot see a mailbox. I bet it will end up on one of those More of Best Celebrity Ooops! (an extra "o" for extra oops) on VH1 or E!. The DUI and possession charges are not going to sit right with all of those insurance companies that have to insure his future film productions. We can see he's already better at the whole "being arrested" process than some of his other peers in the movie world. However he probably should be ashamed that he was caught driving a '95 Saturn. I have not found a mugshot of him. I can't imagine that he had as good a time as Joshua Jackson had in his photo moment.
Of course, Wednesday hopes he can recover from his injuries in time to film a remake of "The Late Great Me! Story of a Teenage Alcoholic" which was an award-winning After School special back in 1979. This should be a part of his community service (as opposed to jail). The story should be updated to include use of cell phones, the Internet, MySpace, laser pointers, cars with DVD players, and updated snacks! Life was sure less exciting when people got wasted in '79, huh?

The Gathering coming to DVD
The Film Asylum reports that The Gathering will be on DVD on October 3rd. It was never released into theatres in the US maybe because it looks more like a longer version of an "Outer Limits" episode. The release date is well-timed with the writer Anthony Horowitz's latest movie release, Stormbreaker, due in the US on October 6.

Great comment from the real Christina Ricci?
Is this comment below the article really by the real Christina Ricci? Well, if Lizzy (right) can get her head out of the bleach solution every now and then, she'd know from Ricci's excellent fight scenes in Cursed that she is, indeed, a healthy, athletic person.

Welcome message & Life On Mars on BBC America
Welcome to Wednesday's Korner - The Blog
In the coming days this blog will have a full list of links transferred and updated from the website mentioned in this blog's description. It's an overwhelming amount of work. The site will continue to exist, but updates to the Morpheus site will cease, however this is where you will find link and information updates going forward.
While it is stated that the author of Wednesday's Korner appreciates the dark side of humor made popular by Charles Addams and the portrayal of Wednesday Addams by Christina Ricci, the blog is not intended in any way to infringe on copyrighted material from the books or movies associated with the Addams Family. The blog is here to honor things that are strange, peculiar and particularly morbid in the world of literature, music, television, film, art, etc. For the most part, the blog is to promote and not tear apart. Reviews, however, are intended to be a critical essay, though not intended to spoil the reader without warning.
What's happening in Roger L. Jackson's career will continue to be covered as it was covered on the website. If there is a day where he has his own official website, it will be announced here. In the meantime, enjoy the links provided about his career on this blog. Instructions on how to contact Roger via Wednesday's Korner shall continue to be provided through the website.
Now on to what the Korner is watching, though it will sadly be a brief 11 episodes... If anyone has missed the new wonderful sci-fi crime drama series, "Life On Mars," it will air again on Jul 30 at 6:00pm pst and 9pm pst. Check local cable/satellite TV listings for your BBC America channel information.
The show "Life on Mars" stars John Simm, an actor some may have seen in 24 Hour Party People, portraying Joy Division's Bernard Sumner. Simm's partner in life (as noted in IMDB) just so happens to be Kate Magowan who is portraying Una in the movie version of Neil Gaiman's Stardust.
Speaking of Stardust, it would be wise of Paramount to hire Charles Vess, the principal artist behind the beautiful images in the book version, to do the movie poster.
