Earlier this week, The Hunger Games franchise joined the photo based social network Instagram and following the account is already paying dividends. The account revealed the next poster for the highly anticipated sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. On the poster Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), the newly crowned co-victor of the Hunger Games, is standing on a bluff looking down on the world. That’s pretty much where the world puts her at the start of this film, which is something President Snow (Donald Sutherland) is not too happy about. Check it out below. Read More »

This weekend people will be talking about Ben Kingsley, whose work in Iron Man 3 gives the film some of its most surprising and entertaining moments. (No spoilers in the comments, please.) After that, the actor will be seen in writer/director Gavin Hood’s much anticipated adaptation of Orson Scott Card‘s sci-fi novel Ender’s Game.
The first trailer for the film will be released next week, and presumably that will outline how the young boy Andrew “Ender” Wiggin (Asa Butterfield) is trained at Battle School to become a possible leader in humanity’s last-ditch effort to repel alien attackers. As a pre-trailer tease, Summit has released the first look at Kingsley, who plays the half-Maori veteran commander Mazer Rackham. Read More »

Writing a movie is difficult enough. Imagine writing it from a wheelchair without the ability to speak or move. That’s the unbelievable truth of what Scott Lew did for his new film, Sexy Evil Genius. In 2004, Lew was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease, which has since left the writer a mute pentaplegic. (He can’t move his four limbs, neck or head) He’s forced to breathe with a ventilator and communicates with the help of an assistant, as well as an infrared dot on his forehead.
Using that painstaking process to communicate, Lew wrote the film Sexy Evil Genius, which stars Katee Sackoff, Seth Green, Michelle Trachtenberg, William Baldwin and Harold Perrineau. Directed by Shawn Piller, it’s out on DVD April 9 and the disc includes the documentary Jujitsu-ing Reality, which details Lew’s story. /Film is proud to exclusively debut a clip from the documentary.

Almost two years ago, Toronto Film Festival and Fantastic Fest audiences made a lot of noise about the bloody home-invasion thriller You’re Next. Now everyone gets to see what those few people were talking about.
Director Adam Wingard (A Horrible Way to Die, V/H/S) and screenwriter Simon Barrett (A Horrible Way to Die) have come up with a great spin on the hoary old home invasion movie, and populated it with a cast that is ready get dirty and bloody. Indie and genre faves (Sharni Vinson, AJ Bowen, Barbara Crampton, Amy Seimetz) and filmmakers (Joe Swanberg, Ti West) play members of a large family who come together for a celebration dinner at a relatively remote home in the country. The clan quickly finds that it has been targeted by masked assailants who have staked out the house with very violent intent.
A great use of Lou Reed’s song ‘Perfect Day’ helps this trailer establish and then build tension. By the end you might be as impatient for the August release of You’re Next as the film’s creators must be. Read More »
