(500) Days of Fatal Attraction, plus where's Nikki Finke?

The trailer for "(500) Days of Summer" re-envisioned as a thriller. I still can't get used to the former Redwood Saloon in Downtown as a hipster bar done in white instead of newspaper ink-stained red. Posted at Movie City Indie.

Also at Movie City News: David Poland notes that Nikki Finke hasn't posted at Deadline Hollywood since Sunday morning. He tweets tonight: "100 Hours Without Crazy Nikki at Deadline Hollywood... now an inside baseball trade site without bile... hmmm... wonder if the #s are down." Her last post was about Cannes, and there's been no personal note about time off as in the past. Finke did comment this week to the Huffington Post on Janice Min's hire at the Hollywood Reporter.
