Screening Gotham: Kyle Smith's Soul Optioned, Sent Into Turnaround

Some of today's movie news of note from around New York:

--News Corporation's ownership of the New York Post and 20th Century Fox have thus far allowed a number of convenient promotional synergies for The Simpsons Movie. It's anyone's guess where Kyle Smith's screenplay-formatted "review" falls in the equation, but I'm offering a free doughnut-and-coffee voucher to the first person who can actually get through the whole thing. (Post copy editors are not eligible.) That giant rustling sound you hear? The sound of a few hundred-thousand NYP readers turning the page at once.

--A tip of the hat this morning to Scott Macaulay at the Filmmaker Magazine Blog, who has word that yet another cut of Blade Runner is set for a theatrical run in New York starting Oct. 5. This precedes what appears to be the most ridiculously overwrought DVD re-release in the format's young history: Five discs, an origami unicorn and a letter signed by Ridley Scott. Variety has the backstory.

--GreenCine Daily correspondent Jim Van Maanen filed a dispatch from the recent Lincoln Center premiere of Hirayama Hideyuki's Three for the Road: "If you don't enjoy it, I don't want to know," co-star Kanzaburo Nakamura said in his introduction. I think Van Maanen enjoyed it.

--Congrats to My Five-Year Plan's Brendan Bouzard, a fave among NYC film bloggers and the owner of a new job whose previous holder left a "sent items" e-mail folder containing "a half dozen notes blasted off to various escort services, with fairly explicit detail of what sort of services the person who formerly held my position would require ('I’m a fan of all the acronyms,' he says in one)." NB: Brendan continues to be the only person still watching On the Lot.
