The surf documentary has a long and storied history. As seen in The Endless Summer and Riding Giants and dozens in between, surfers and filmmakers have been traveling the globe together for decades, documenting the unique lifestyle and incredibly beautiful sport.
The latest entry into this specific genre is out today. It’s called Strange Rumblings in Shangri-La and was directed by Joe G. The director shot the whole movie on 16mm film, which gives it a classic feel in a modern world. The filmmakers traveled from Iceland to Mozambique, France to Brazil and many places in between, all in the quest for “surfing’s own holy grail.”

I want you to go get a piece or paper or open the Notes program on your phone and write down two words: Tokyo Tribe. You’re going to want tangible proof you knew about one of the craziest, most surprising, surreal fun films of the year well before anyone else.
Tokyo Tribe is directed by Shion Sono, a director whose films (Love Exposure, Cold Fish) are usually pretty brutal. For the most part, this one isn’t. In fact, it’s the opposite. Tokyo Tribe is a hip hop musical about gang wars in Tokyo filled with sex, action, rapping and more rapping. Think Les Miserables if it were populated by The Warriors, who acted like they were in a kung-fu version of Beat Street, with the visual aesthetic of Spring Breakers. Set in an Eighties. That almost describes Tokyo Tribe, a film I loved to no end. Read More »

Great directors can get their actors to go to the ends of the Earth for them. In Interstellar, Christopher Nolan inspires his to go beyond.
Well — not literally, since we assume the film was still shot on Earth. But the film definitely sends them off-planet. And so does the new Interstellar ad, which shows star Matthew McConaughey in a strange alien landscape. Hit the jump to see the new Interstellar poster.
Update: We’ve now got two new Interstellar posters. One shows a vision dramatically different from the ice planet image. We’ll assume it isn’t a spoiler, given the fact that the shot is front and center on a new poster.

I literally just walked out of a screening of Force Majeure at Fantastic Fest 2014 and had to let you know about it. Thankfully for me, a new poster and trailer came out earlier this week.
Directed by Ruben Östlund, the film follows a family who are on a ski vacation. When an avalanche unexpectedly hits, everyone is forced into a life or death situation where they’ll reveal their true colors. In one case, they aren’t what they expect. That might sounds like the set up to some kind of horror movie, but Force Majeure walks an absolute stellar tightrope of tone, seamlessly going from uncomfortable to funny, then tense and human. It’s poignant, it’s hilarious, it’s beautifully shot and it’s totally unexpected. The film won a special award at Cannes earlier this year and has been slaying the festival crowd, myself included. Below what the latest Force Majeure trailer and see the new poster. Read More »
The Interstellar rumblings have began. Star John Lithgow saw the movie this weekend in New York and said the following about it: “Mind blown at 8AM, secret IMAX screening of #Interstellar in NY. So proud to be in it.” I’ve heard rumors of tears upon tears at other early screenings too. Basically, November 7 can’t get here fast enough to show us Christopher Nolan‘s take on space travel starring Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, John Lithgow, Wes Bentley and more.
As we get ready for the film, the Poster Posse has begun to pay tribute. Multiple artists have made fan posters for the highly anticipated sci-fi epic. Check out the Poster Posse Interstellar posters below. Read More »

Into the Woods is a sort of kitchen-sink fairy tale adaptation, combining the stories of Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Little Red Riding Hood with a big Steven Sondheim soundtrack and a massive star-studded cast. But the latest Into the Woods poster keeps things very simple. Check it out after the jump.
