The Back Page – March 30 2012

It's Warren Beatty's 75th Birthday! Here he is on the set of Bonnie and Clyde, doing some excellent pointing.

Now, The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!  Arrived in cinemas on Wednesday, but I’m damned if I’m not having this trailer in the post this week.

Oh, that’s good stuff. There’s a longer version on the official site if you want to see some actual jokes (‘Some of you are just fish I’ve put a hat on’), but for me the sea shanty version wins. I’m actually a bit excited about seeing it.

If you’re looking for something to read, why not give this Vanity Fair article a look, it’s all about The Sopranos, from those who made it.

Or you could read a MostlyFilm post. Choose from this week’s gems:

Boys Don’t Cry, on the charms of Nicholas Sparks.

Nuking From Orbit, on the Alien/Prometheus marketing machine.

Rearranging the Furniture, on Lena Dunham’s Tiny Furniture and Girls.

35 Nation Army, on weird and wonderful covers of Seven Nation Army.

Next up on MostlyFilm – More obscure gems! La Grande Illusion! OUR FIRST ANNIVERSARY! And sexy, sexy Jesus.

Earlier this month, Moth and Anise took a look at the latest pop releases, including Marcus Collins’ version of The White Stripes Seven Nation Army.

Fired by curiosity and a love of cover versions I have listened my way through more than 20 covers of this song to provide you with five versions that I think are the most interesting and worth your time. If you have your own personal favourite that isn’t on this list please let us know what it is in the comments, or tweet your favourite @MostlyFilm.
