All signs point to a big finish in 2016 for Jordan Brand. The sneaker giant has 3 major releases in December including the above “Suede” premiums 11s. These dropped exclusively through 2 retailers a couple of weeks ago, but it appears that they will be going global on December 23rd. The $400 price tag might provide collectors strapped for cash with a few tough decisions, check back in for more info as we get closer to the release date.
Nike SB recently released the latest kicks from their premium collection and they’re pretty interesting. The “Brown Paper Bag” name suits the “filbert” leather particularly well, a black lower and gum sole rounds out a surprisingly clean pair of kicks. These should be available at your local Nike SB retailer or you can click the link below and snag them via Premier for $110.
Director David Koepp (Secret Window, Premium Rush) will see his latest film Mortdecai open in theaters this January 23rd. Starring Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean, Alice in Wonderland) as the title character, the movie is based on a series of novels by author Kyril Bonfiglioli titled Don’t Point That Thing At Me, following the fictional character Charlie Mortdecai. Portrayed as a comical, yet psychotic anti-hero in the novel, the movie follows Mortdecai as he searches for a stolen painting believed to contain the key to a lost Nazi bank account. Gwyneth Paltrow (Seven, Iron Man), Ewen McGregor (Big Fish, The Men Who Stare At Goats) and Paul Bettany (The DaVinci Code, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World) also star in the movie, which was adapted by screenwriter Eric Aronson (On The Line). Check out the trailer here on MADE, and I would at least consider giving this one a shot on the big screen. The novels received critical acclaim when they were released back in the 1970s, and the supporting cast seems strong enough to not have to rely entirely on Johnny Depp for the duration of the movie, but I leave the choice to you.
