Stanley Kubrick's 1980 horror classic The Shining and Wes Anderson's award-winning Grand Budapest Hotel probably don't seem that much alike.
But with some clever editing, the two hotel-based films go together like peanut butter and horribly frightening jelly!

Editor Steve Ramsden says he was inspired to mash up the two after realizing how similar the directors frame their shots — and the video is proof that he's right!
Check out the trailer (below) to see the whimsical madness that is The Grand Overlook Hotel!

Clint Eastwood's RNC chair act has been spoofed by so many people, it's not even funny anymore — unless one of Hollywood's most serious actor's decides to do it.
Daniel Day-Lewis, a two-time Academy Award winner who only commits to a few movies a decade, pretended President Barack Obama was sitting next to him while receiving the Stanley Kubrick Award for Excellence in Film at the 2012 Britannia Awards in El Lay on Wednesday night.
After Steven Spielberg presented him with a statue, the Lincoln star bowed toward an empty chair next to the podium and joked:

We HEARD that!
On Saturday, Amber Heard attended the LACMA Art + Film Gala honoring Stanley Kubrick and Ed Ruscha in El Lay, and she was looking lavishly adorned!!
The star came dressed in head-to-toe Gucci, but what caught our eyes the most, was her golden decorated neckline.
With her red lips, beautiful locks and ginormous radiating collar, Miz Heard could've easily passed for a beautiful Egyptian goddess!

Nicole Kidman may have been married to Tom Cruise while filming Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut, but that didn't make the graphic sex scenes any easier.
In fact, the actress admits that the director had to "coax" her into getting it on in front of the camera with her own husband!
Was the erotic movie the beginning of the end for her marriage to Scientology's golden boy?
According to her, no. Addressing that question, she clarified:

Warner Bros unofficially announced they're developing a prequel to The Shining!!
That idea is more cray than Jack Nicholson busting through our bathroom door with an axe!!
First Psycho got a prequel TV series, then it was Silence of the Lambs' turn, and now Stanley Kubrick's horror masterpiece might
enjoy be subjected to the same treatment?
Prequels and sequels are one rung further up the ladder than remakes but the trend is disconcerting!
It's obviously a bit too early to talk plot but Stephen King's novel contains tons of allusions to previous murders and mayhem within the horrifically haunted Overlook Motel. We imagine there are tons of different directions they could turn!
Tread lightly, WB. The Shining is an all time classic!
