Last week, we reported on an as-yet-untitled documentary about South Park that would be airing on Comedy Central October 2, days ahead of the show’s October 5 return. We now have a bit more detail on what, exactly, the special will be about. According to Playbill (via Collider), the documentary will be:
an all-access pass to the behind-the-scenes world of creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone at South Park Studios in Los Angeles through this special documentary, providing an exclusive, insiders look into the making of a ‘South Park’ episode.
The documentary is apparently part of a year-long celebration of the series to mark its 15th anniversary. Other components of the celebration include the “South Park Fan Experience” at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, a traveling exhibit curated by artist Ron English, and limited-edition South Park-branded merchandise.
After the jump, lots of TV marketing: posters for Boardwalk Empire and Person of Interest, plus a poster and an intriguingly creepy teaser for American Horror Story.

Stacy Keach is the latest actor added to the growing cast of Tony Gilroy‘s The Bourne Legacy, which stars Jeremy Renner as a new ultra-capable agent who emerges from the same training program that created Matt Damon’s Jason Bourne. We don’t know Keach’s role, but do know that he will play alongside (or against) Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton in the film that acts as a parallel storyline to the three existing Bourne films.

After the break, you’ll find information about Forest Whitaker’s role as one of the two leads of a voodoo thriller, and Katrina Bowden joins the Paz de la Huerta exploitation picture Nurse 3D. Read More »
And she will! Or, more to the point, she already is directing. We just had quite the, uh, view of the actress thanks to the teaser image for Nurse 3D, in which she plays a nurse. In 3D. Who is naked. It wasn’t the nudity in the image that was surprising — this is an actress from whom clothes flee like runners from the starting gun. No, it was the fact that she was essentially wearing a ‘dress’ of blood. That was new.
Anyway. The subject here is a film that Paz de la Huerta says she is directing: her own version of The Red Shoes, in which she also plays the lead. She told The Observer it is “about a woman who‘s unique, and lives in a small village, and is ostracized for being different, for being talented, and then she makes a horrible mistake and because the people in the village are so—you know—jealous of her, they don’t forgive her… and we are all human, you know. And we all suffer.”
So it’s an autobiography? I’ll just offer a plea: Paz, please never change.
Apparently, 3D and nudity go together like popcorn and soda. Just ask the team behind Sex and Zen 3D, a massive blockbuster from Hong Kong that uses sex to sell the third dimension. And while that film is supposed to hit North American shores at some point, Lionsgate is also embracing the concept…and dripping blood all over its naked body.
They’ve cast Paz De La Huerta, the regularly naked star of Enter the Void and Boardwalk Empire, in Nurse 3D, a pseudo-sensual horror film directed by Douglas Aarniokoski about an average nurse who spends her nights “targeting and punishing” evil men. So think Dexter with more breasts. The film stars shooting in September for a 2012 release but Lionsgate has released a concept photo that they say will “serve as a style guide and character inspiration for all stages of filmmaking.”

This domestic trailer for Gaspar Noé’s Enter the Void is the best look yet at the colorful head trip of a movie that premiered over a year ago at Cannes. IFC picked up domestic distribution rights and will release the film on September 24. This is the company’s first major promo effort for what must be a pretty difficult sale, but the trailer does its job well. My sky-high interest in seeing the film certainly hasn’t changed after watching it a couple times. Read More »
