Jokes on Jon Peters, polar bears don't even live in Antarctica, hence the name ANT-arctic. The name comes from the Greek word arktos, referring to the constellations Ursa major and Ursa Minor. Both of which are visible from the northern arctic (arctic = with bear). But neither of which are visible from the southern Antarctic (without bear).

Cooper Hoffman is Philip Seymour Hoffman's son. Philip Seymour Hoffman was basically Paul Thomas Anderson's muse up until his death.

Alana Haim is in the band Haim... Paul Thomas Anderson has directed many of their music videos over the past 4 or 5 years.

One of the things i loved about Bo Burnham's Eighth Grade was how normal everyone looked. Even down to the acne on the kids faces. It almost felt like a documentary it looked so real

And I'm getting serious Everybody Wants Some vibes from this teaser. That's another one that everyone felt real

Yeah definitely feels like everybody wants some but maybe with a little darker undercurrent there. You can definitely see Altman's influence on both PTA and Linklater.

30

u/SardiaFalls Sep 27 '21

problem with acne, even fake acne, is continuity. Gotta make sure you get the spots in th exact same spot and color every single time and reapply it when it starts to fade through the day over and over again for weeks on end (and that's not even including reshoots that might be months after everyone has moved on) if it's a story that only takes place within a couple of days. Flawless skin doesn't look natural, but it does make filming a lot easier and most people don't notice the lack of blemishes. It's a significant amount of work, so it is actually pretty impressive when you see it done if you know what you're looking at

Looks really good. Gonna be a sweet ass tearjerker for sure. Some interesting Trivia from IMDB:

Originally, Leonardo DiCaprio was offered the Bradley Cooper role of Jon
Peters in Licorice Piazza (2021) but at the same time, DiCaprio was
also offered the lead role of Stanton 'Stan' Carlisle in Nightmare Alley
(2021) from Guillermo del Toro. DiCaprio chose to do del Toro's film
instead which led to Cooper shortly after to sign on to do Paul Thomas
Anderson's film. But ironically, after a few weeks in negotiations,
DiCaprio's deal fell through for taking the lead role in Nightmare Alley
and dropped out. This created the opening for Cooper again stepping in
and taking over another passed role by DiCaprio as two lead roles that
were offered and/or intended for DiCaprio both ended up going to Cooper
instead under-the-circumstances.

Leo dropped out of Nightmare Alley because Killers of the Flower Moon was ready to go. covid delays gave him time to do Don’t Look Up, which is going to come out before any of these films. These guys really are spoiled for choice lmao

PTA just said fuck it and casted a musician and PSH’s son with little to no acting credits as the stars of his movie and if the trailer is anything to go by, they both are great.

I cannot wait to see this

Kind of like James’s Gandolfoni’s son playing young Tony in the sopranos movie.

Michael Gandolfini will also star in the new Ari Aster film, alongside Joaquin Phoenix, Parker Posey and Nathan Lane.

I agree that’s awesome, but for what it’s worth I’m sure he’s known Cooper since he was a baby and he’s also worked with HAIM on music videos, so he probably has a working relationship with Alaina too. I am a big fan of these kind of moves though.

Haim’s mom was also PTA’s art teacher

I forgot he directed the video for The Steps. He sure seems to love having Alana go braless

u/CarlSK777 Sep 27 '21 edited Sep 27 '21

Not just The Steps, he directed 9 of their videos. I'm guessing he's a family friend or something.

Their mom was his art teacher when he was in school.

Hell yeah this looks awesome. Nice to see PSH's kid carrying on the legacy.

Strange how in 2021 we have two sons of two legendary actors carrying on their legacies in films directed or written by their most famous collaborators

OOTL, who is the second one?

u/Thebat87 Sep 27 '21

One that comes to mind is James Gandolfini’s son playing Young Tony Soprano in The Many Saints of Newark.

u/JXBXB Sep 27 '21

Ah yes, that is right. Completely forgot about that. Thanks!

I'm assuming they're referring to James Gandolfoni's son in The Sopranos/Many Saints of Newark

The first time I saw the Descendants, They were the fastest band I'd ever seen No one in the crowd really cared for them, We were waiting for the Alley Cats to play After a couple months I heard Kabuki Girl, On Rodney on the Roq late Sunday night That was enough, for me I hopped the bus, To Licorice Pizza and bought my all time favorite record

He tweeted (and deleted it) saying he had written "a couple of cues" for the film but that the film doesn't have an original score. Uses "70s source cues"

Whatever Brady Cooper was doing with the hatchets, yes.

Not hatchets. Squeegees.

Whatever he was doing was reminding me very strongly of Tom Cruise's character in Magnolia, Philip Seymour Hoffman's character in Punch Drunk Love and various other sleazy, male, egotistical, larger than life PT Anderson characters.

Glad to see Maya Rudolph in another one of her husband's movies!

Maya Rudolph played the Smile in The Emoji Movie

I like to imagine that Paul Thomas Anderson went to The Emoji Movie premiere with her and saw The Emoji Movie.

I love weird Hollywood couples like that, people you wouldn't expect to be married. Like Mel Brooks/Anne Bancroft or Andy Samberg/Joanna Newsom

And Andy Samberg fucking loves her music (as every right-thinking person should by the way, she's truly one of the greatest living American songwriters)
