Kevin Smith‘s latest film, Tusk, premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend. That means we’ll finally get word of exactly how far Smith pushed the envelope in his new horror film, which stars Michael Parks as a man trying to turn another (Justin Long) into a walrus. Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez and maybe even Johnny Depp co-star as people looking for Long’s character.
We’ve seen a disturbing teaser trailer from the film and now, five new stills have been released. Everyone above (minus Depp) is represented and yes, they’re very creepy. Check out the new Tusk photos below. Read More »
Kevin Smith has always been a comic book fan. His second and third movies were steeped in comics. To this day, he’ll occasionally write a comic and even maintains a podcast about Batman. And for a comic book fan/filmmaker, there’s really nothing better than getting Stan Lee to appear in your film. That happened for Smith in film number two, Mallrats, when Lee showed up – as himself – to spout a few gross words of wisdom to our hero, Brodie.
Now, almost 20 years later, Smith got Lee to return for his latest film, Yoga Hosers. Check out the image and more below. Read More »
Lionsgate is set to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the theatrical release of SAW by bringing the film back to theaters nationwide for a one-week run starting on Friday, October 31st with select screenings beginning Thursday night, October 30th. Complain all you want about the series of films that it spawned but the original is actually a pretty interesting indie film. (I first discovered it the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.) The director of the original film, James Wan, has gone on to create the Insidious franchise, as well as directing The Conjuring and the upcoming Fast & Furious 7. Read the full Saw 2014 rerelease press release after the jump.

“From writer/director Jake Paltrow comes a futuristic western, told in three chapters, which inventively layers Greek tragedy over an ethereal narrative that’s steeped deeply in the values of the American West.” I’m in. Did I mention that the film has a great cast? Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and Kodi Smit-McPhee lead this story. Watch the Young Ones trailer embedded after the jump.

Magnolia Pictures has released a new trailer for Gregg Araki‘s White Bird in a Blizzard, which premiered this year at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.

The drama follows as a teenager whose life is thrown into chaos by the mysterious disappearance of her mother (played by Eva Green). A trailer for White Bird in a Blizzard was released days before its Sundance premiere; now a more official trailer is online to promote the September 25th VOD release. (The film will also be available in some theaters on October 24th.) Watch the White Bird in a Blizzard trailer embedded after the jump.

Late last year, we wrote about a poster documentary called Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six, directed by Kevin Burke. The film aims to trace the full history of the movie poster from its earliest conception, through the golden age of Hollywood, all the way up to the current craze of limited edition screen prints. Since we ran the story, Burke and his team have been traveling the country, shooting and editing the film and now a brand new trailer is online. We’ve got that below, as well as an exclusive quote from the director updating us on the status of the movie. Read More »
The first Rudderless trailer and poster are here. Directed by William H. Macy, making his feature debut, the film stars Billy Crudup as Sam, a father who loses his son. Racked with depression, Sam eventually finds solace in his son’s original music. He performs the songs at an open mic, and eventually becomes popular because of the music. This creates quite the moral dilemma, as Sam is reaping the rewards of son’s genius without giving credit. From there, the film takes a dark twist that changes everything entirely.
Rudderless premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year and I wrote a review which you can read here. It’s an uneven, but very interesting film with great music and performances by Crudup and co-stars Anton Yelchin, Selena Gomez, Laurence Fishburne and Felicity Huffman. It’ll hit theaters and VOD on October 17 and now you can see it for yourself. The Rudderless trailer and poster are below. Read More »
