The case of the West Memphis Three has been thoroughly documented in no less than four non-fiction films. But here’s The Devil’s Knot trailer, which represents the effort of Canadian director Atom Egoyan (Chloe, The Sweet Hereafter) to dramatize the story. Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth star in this telling, which begins with the perspective of the parents of the children who were killed in Arkansas in 1993. Eventually, however, we see some of the perspective of the three young men who were wrongly accused of committing the crimes. Read More »

Between The Station Agent, The Visitor, and Win Win, we’ve developed a pretty good idea of what to expect from Tom McCarthy: low-key indies with touches of humor and pathos. But he’s shaking things up a bit with his upcoming The Cobbler by throwing fantasy and Adam Sandler into the mix. And now his next project after that could be an even bigger departure.
McCarthy has signed on to write and possibly direct the Tommysaurus Rex movie, based on an Image Comics book about a boy and his dinosaur pal. Get more details after the jump.

While visiting the set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier in July 2013, we got a chance to sit down and chat with Marvel’s president of production Kevin Feige and talk about the sequel, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Agents of SHIELD and much more. After the jump you will find our roundtable interview with the producer which was conducted right outside the Manhattan Beach sound-stages during the tail end of principal photography.

Based on this Stage Fright red-band trailer, if you infuse the classic ’80s slasher formula with a little bit of Glee and some of the revisionist energy of Scream, you get Stage Fright. (No relation to the 1987 film of the same name.) The shocker is set in a camp for theater kids where the production of one play turns into the catalyst for a series of killings that are rooted a decade in the past.
If you’re coming to this just for the horror, the red-band trailer below suggests that there’s some gory stuff within. Which is to say: if you don’t like blood, this trailer isn’t for you. If you do want to see the red stuff, stick with this trailer until the end. Read More »
In a new set of three The Knick teasers, we see more flashes of Steven Soderbergh‘s upcoming Cinemax show. All are pretty short, just like the first, but they feature that same Colin Stetson baritone sax honk, and super-ominous shots of star Clive Owen, who plays a turn of the century surgeon in New York’s Knickerbocker Hospital.
Check out the three below, and link back here for the first. Read More »

Concept art can be a huge tease — too often we see art that is a lot more visually striking than whatever ends up on screen for a given film. Even in animation, where the concept art and final product theoretically can be close, the difference can be huge.
Director Jorge Gutierrez is irritated when that happens, and promises that his upcoming Fox film The Book of Life, based around the Mexican Day of the Dead and produced by Guillermo del Toro, will look just like the film’s concept art. Read More »
