Some of today's movie news of note from around New York:
-- Some of us stay in New York during Sundance. Fortunately, if we wait a few months, the festival will come to us for a second year. There will be fewer films, fewer celebrities and fewer bloggers (I swear, there must be about a million people with press credentials out there right now), but I've been to Sundance before and I can honestly say it isn't nearly as entertaining a place as the Atlantic Ave. subway hub, which will be your station stop for Sundance at BAM from May 31 to June 10.
-- Of course the first week of freezing cold weather in the city is also the first week of Doug Aitken's new outdoor video installation at MoMA. For you weather wimps who choose to wait it out, the exhibit -- consisting of eight gigantic screens featuring the stories of five New Yorkers (one per borough) -- will run through Feb. 12.
-- Lawyers for Adrienne Shelly's accused murderer Diego Pilico want his confession thrown out. I think this would only be acceptable if we can send Pilico to Park City to be tried by the Sundance juries.
-- "I'm trying to get us to do another ... at least two movies," Robert De Niro tells GQ about working again with Martin Scorsese. The rest of the interview is a bit of a train wreck, but at least we get the latest on a project best described as Marty and Bobby Grow Old Together.
