Today at Flavorpill, we got a first look at Sacha Baron Cohen in The Dictator, his upcoming Larry Charles comedy which we didn’t realize is based on a romance novel by Saddam Hussein. We were excited to hear that Disney has signed on Lost executive producer Damon Lindelof to write and produce a mysterious science fiction project called 1952, but we wanted some more details about the film. We watched John Carpenter’s video introduction to They Live, which is playing tonight at a special screening at the Alamo Drafthouse. We wondered if you get in more trouble at school for your penis prank when the results show up on Google Earth for the next two years. We traveled back in time to Brooklyn in the summer of 1974 thanks to this living wall outside of the National Gallery in London that was inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s A Wheatfield, With Cypresses. We searched for clues about the upcoming season of Breaking Bad in this newly-released promo poster. And finally, we laughed out loud as Sean Penn channeled his Fast Times character Jeff Spicoli in this clip from the 2011 Guys Choice Awards.
