David O. Russell Has Seen The Royal Tenenbaums Over 50 Times

Museum of the Moving Image recently did a retrospective of director David O. Russell’s work to celebrate the release of his fifth film The Fighter, for which he’s nominated for an Academy Award. To kick off the celebration, Russell did a live discussion with friend and sometime collaborator Spike Jonze. Russell offhandedly mentioned The Royal Tenenbaums and was prodded by Jonze to talk about the film, which as you’ll hear Russell is quite fond of. As the clip begins, Russell is talking about showing his first film Spanking The Monkey to his son.

I don’t know if anyone else is excited about this, but there’s a poster now and it looks awesome. Supposedly the trailer will show infront of Monsters vs. Aliens in a week or so and I’ll try and find a link when it comes online. But for now, enjoy the awesomeness (images stolen borrowed from SlashFilm):
