Every time Joel and Ethan Coen sit down to work on a new script, they don't start with plot structure or character, they don't start with an outline, and they don't start with a brief overview of the ultimate goal of the main character.
No, they start with the descriptive action line of, "A FAT MAN is screaming about something," and work their way out from there. Or at least, that's what this supercut originally discovered by our brosephs at CinemaBlend would have you believe, and after six minutes of fat dudes screaming, it's a theory that you may find difficult to argue.

With fiery explosions, unruly gunfights and frenzied superhero battles becoming essential to most nights out at the movies, there's something to be said about films that can do just the opposite, communicating a wealth of information with just the slightest nuanced motion.
Cinemagraphs, which bridge the gap between static images and video by adding a tiny dose of movement to otherwise inert still shots, are a perfect vehicle for delivering a single serving of cinematic awesomeness. These seven cinemagraphs capture some of our all-time favorite moments in film in a really cool way.
7. Animated Poster ('Pulp Fiction')
"Pulp Fiction"'s iconic poster art is such a classic that adding nothing but a slight animation of Uma's burning cigarette brings the it new life. A moment of attention from Mia Wallace is instantly transformed into a never-ending staring contest, and she’s clearly not going to take another puff of her cig until you blink. Get More »
Before this, all we had was that hellishly vague synopsis which read, "This time, there's no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off."
Thanks to the new vid, though, a couple of things are now clear. Get More »
Unlike most movie follow-ups, "Monsters University" takes its main characters James "Sulley" Sullivan (John Goodman) and Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) back a phase to show how they became the pair of lovably scary scamps we got to know in 2001's "Monsters, Inc."
As the title suggests, the story takes place at the college where the two first meet (lucky this is an animated world where they can easily age in reverse) and from the looks of this new clip, their initial encounter is just as festive and messy as one might expect. Get More »

So far this month we've already observed major national holidays like New Year's Day and Martin Luther King Jr.'s Birthday. But today, America is being treated to a surprise new holiday: New Coen Brothers Surprise Trailer Release Day.
Well, if George Clooney asks you to be in his movie, what are you gonna do, say "No?"
Daniel Craig, Bill Murray, Jean Dujardin and Cate Blanchett are just a few of the actors that are making up the ensemble of Clooney's World War II drama, "The Monuments Men," according to Deadline.
"The Monuments Men" centers around a group of art historians and museum curators who join forces to recover renowned works of art stolen by the Nazis before Hitler can destroy them.
Clooney, who co-wrote the screenplay with Grant Heslov and is set to direct, will also star in the film, with John Goodman, Hugh Bonneville and Bob Balaban also signing on to join the cast. Get More »
Ben Affleck proved he's an ace behind the camera with "Gone Baby Gone" and "The Town," but now he's gunning for Oscar with his newest picture titled "Argo."
Based on a true story of six Americans who evade capture during the Iranian Hostage Crisis in 1979, and the CIA man (Affleck — yep, he stars in this one, too) who gets the bright idea to get them out of the country under the cover story that they're making a cheesy sci-fi movie. Their chances might be slim, but the odds are good you're gonna love these clips...
With just about every movie studio on Earth trying to wring a few extra bucks from their film catalog by reissuing their movies with hasty 3-D transfers, fans can become a little jaded. But there are two things about the new 3-D re-release of "Monsters, Inc." that buck that trend: The movie is awesome and it was pretty much made to be shown in 3-D anyway.
And just to make sure you remember how cool "Monsters, Inc." is, Pixar has just released a brand new trailer.
