Writing a movie is difficult enough. Imagine writing it from a wheelchair without the ability to speak or move. That’s the unbelievable truth of what Scott Lew did for his new film, Sexy Evil Genius. In 2004, Lew was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease, which has since left the writer a mute pentaplegic. (He can’t move his four limbs, neck or head) He’s forced to breathe with a ventilator and communicates with the help of an assistant, as well as an infrared dot on his forehead.
Using that painstaking process to communicate, Lew wrote the film Sexy Evil Genius, which stars Katee Sackoff, Seth Green, Michelle Trachtenberg, William Baldwin and Harold Perrineau. Directed by Shawn Piller, it’s out on DVD April 9 and the disc includes the documentary Jujitsu-ing Reality, which details Lew’s story. /Film is proud to exclusively debut a clip from the documentary. Check it out below. Read More »

Take everything you know about Star Wars, ball it up and throw it in the trash. Darth Vader was never mean; he was a rapper. Obi-Wan Kenobi was never stoic; he did stand-up comedy. Han Solo was never a scoundrel; he was a dancer. The Emperor was never evil; he was a chick magnet. Confused? You will be. You. Will. Be.
Star Wars: Detours is an upcoming animated comedy, created by Seth Green and Matt Senreich of Robot Chicken fame, featuring all your favorite Star Wars characters in situations so totally out of character and tone for the series, it makes the Prequels look good. A trailer has just come online featuring bad references, kiddie humor and the kind of bastardizing, canon-crushing images that’ll make you bow down to the Prequels for their wit, logic and flawless, Star Wars storytelling. It’s this generation’s Star Wars Christmas Special. If you dare, watch it after the jump. Read More »

Walt Disney Pictures has released a second movie trailer for the Robert Zemeckis’ produced adaptation of Berkley Breathed’s children’s book Mars Needs Moms. The performance capture film is being directed by The Prince of Egypt/The Time Machine helmer Simon Wells and stars Seth Green, Joan Cusack and Dan Fogler. I have been disappointed with everything I’ve seen thus far, and this trailer doesn’t change things. I continue to believe there is a lot of untapped potential in the science ficiton computer animated world. Think about it: What (non-Anime) animated films other than WALL-E have done it right? Hit the jump to watch the trailer now. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

We’ve seen a poster and one image from Mars Needs Moms, the Robert Zemeckis-produced Disney film that adapts Berkeley Breathed‘s book of the same name. Both suggested that quite a few liberties had been taken with the material, and now there’s a trailer to show just how far Disney has taken it. Read More »
We’ve seen one poster image (with a strong Close Encounters vibe) for the Disney film Mars Needs Moms. Now there’s a new image from the film that shows off both the aliens and a couple of human characters.The film’s title always makes me assume it’s a kitschy kids film — which would be fine — but then I remember that it is based on the book of the same name by venerable Bloom County creator Berkeley Breathed. And that’s just fine. So keep that in mind, and check out the full image after the break. Read More »
