Afternoon Links: Tobey Maguire Will Now Star in Something Utterly Unmissable

The Spoils of Babylon isn’t coming to IFC for another three months, so we’ve got a while to ponder this brazenly mysterious trailer. Is it There Will Be Blood meets The Royal Tenenbaums? Casino meets Walk Hard? The family saga about amorous siblings (Kristen Wiig and Tobey Maguire) comes from Will Ferrell and Casa de Mi Padre director Matt Piedmont; Ferrell will introduce each episode as a fictional author who wrote the work being “adapted.” A grandiose piano score may or may not be part of the final product. And still, knowing so little, we’d like to hibernate until January 9, please, if we may.
