Have you ever felt a flash of murderous hate for someone who regularly behaves like a total dickbag? Have you wanted to live in a world free of reality-TV personalities who, through their perverse celebrity status, have a greater effect on behavior than do people whose lives are truly upstanding? Have you wanted to just slap the living shit out of someone who wouldn’t stop texting in a movie?
If you answered ‘no’ to all of those questions then I don’t believe you. If you answered ‘yes’ to any of them, and especially if you answered ‘yes’ to all of them, then Bobcat Goldthwait‘s new film God Bless America is the movie for you.

Amongst bloggers, Sundance interviews can be a controversial topic. On one hand, you’re given unprecedented access to the stars and filmmakers behind what are potentially some of the biggest films of the year. Doing so, however, means seeing fewer movies, because huge chunks of time must be devoted to traveling to and from interview locations, which are often remote and incredibly loud.
Generally, we here at /Film let the movies do the talking when it comes to Sundance. But as a huge fan of the comedy duo known as Tim and Eric, I knew I’d probably never, ever get the chance to speak to them one on one ever again. So I did. And I filmed it.
After the jump, watch a ten minute video interview with not only Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim but their friend Will Forte too. We discuss Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, which hits video on demand January 27 and theaters on March 2 (watch the review here), as well as their sense of humor, process, the likelihood they’ll return to television and more.

Hi, my name is Germain and I’m a Tim and Eric fan. I’ve been a fan for about 4 years, which is when I first discovered their Adult Swim show Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job. Their off-the-wall, awkward and weird brand of humor brand is certainly an acquired taste but well worth the trouble.
If you’ve done the leg work and are a fan of Tim and Eric like I am, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim‘s first feature film, Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie is a riot. The duo have successfully adapted their style and humor into feature length with a little help from their friends Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Robert Loggia, Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte and William Atherton. While it runs a bit too long and can drag at moments, overall, fans are going to have a truly fun experience with the film. Non-fans, on the other hand, might struggle through some of the madness.
After the jump, watch myself and Ethan Anderton from First Showing discuss the film on video! Read More »
Back in September, Bobcat Goldthwait‘s new film God Bless America premiered at TIFF, where Peter called it “a biting deconstruction of American culture” and “a pitch-black comedy that is crude, violent and intelligent.” Magnolia picked up the film almost immediately, and now we’ve got premiere info and a new poster.
God Bless America, in which a guy named Frank snaps just a little bit, leading him to go on a cross-country killing spree aided by a 16 year-old girl (Tara Lynn Barr), will hit VOD and digital platforms on April 6 and then open in some theaters starting May 11.

“I paid a billion dollars for that piece of shit?” Look, the humor of Tim and Eric is not for everyone. In fact, it’s not for most people. But if it’s for you, today might be the second greatest day of your life. The only day that will be better is when you finally get to see Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie in full. That day is coming soon (it’ll be playing at the Sundance Film Festival, hit on demand January 27 and be in theaters March 2) but, for now, there’s a very, repeat VERY, NSFW red-band trailer for the film featuring Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Robert Loggia, Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte and William Atherton. They’re all this this trailer, which is slightly more straight forward than the teaser trailer that was out earlier this week. It’s after the jump. Read More »
In the grand tradition of Tim & Eric, I have no idea what exactly it is you are about to watch. It is, without a doubt, 42 seconds of video teasing the release of Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, starring, written and directed by the team behind Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim. According to this tease (a teaser trailer, I guess), it’ll be released in theaters on March 2, 2012 and on-demand January 27, 2012. Previous reports have stated it’s a movie about what happens when two men spend $1 billion on a movie and co-stars Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Robert Loggia, Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte and William Atherton along with its titular duo. But you’ll see none of them in this trailer.

Because film development has turned into a game that is more competitive than most sports, we have dueling pictures brewing for a great many subjects. Hockey is a pretty natural subject for a movie duel, however. The film Goon is the first of two to come out of the gate.
Goon stars Seann William Scott as a bouncer who is recruited for a minor league hockey team based on his domineering fighting skills. Magnet bought the movie for US distribution after it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, and we’ve already seen a Canadian teaser trailer that showed off the movie’s basic look and tone.
Now here’s the full trailer that will play in Canada; we can probably expect basically the same clip to be released for US audiences with the Magnet logo tacked on. Check it out below.
Update: A red-band US trailer hit today, too, and has been added below. Read More »

There is a definite echo of The Shining in this trailer for The Innkeepers, a film which comes to us from The House of the Devil director Ti West. I was a big House of the Devil fan, though I understand why the movie’s very deliberate pace wasn’t everyone’s cup of tea.
That deliberate pace seems to be a factor here, too, based on early reviews, but this trailer suggests that there are some good scares in the story of a couple hotel owners who take advantage of the failing status of their business to investigate stories of ghosts haunting the halls. Check the trailer below. Read More »
