Here’s the trailer for Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, an innovative project he shot over the course of 12 years, employing the same young actor from the ages of 6 to 18. (It also employed the same Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette over that span, but that’s somehow less impressive a trick.) It looks excellent.
And here is a trailer for Wolfcop, which presumably also employed the same actors over its entire shooting schedule. It also looks excellent, but mostly because there’s a cop who becomes a wolf. To the best of our knowledge, the kid in Boyhood becomes neither cop nor wolf.

Mariah Carey is dropping a surprise album. Wait, is it still a surprise album if she’s telling us about it?
“There were Little Debbies everywhere!” This might be the most delicious accident of all time.
Six minutes of Star Wars stuff. If you care, you don’t need more than those six words to sell you.
And also: The upcoming Star Wars films will draw upon the canon of the previous movies, plus The Clone Wars and Rebels animated series. Not the other stuff in the Expanded Universe.
