Southland Tales prequel

In 2006, Donnie Darko director Richard Kelly premiered his second feature film, Southland Tales, at the Cannes Film Festival. The audience did not react warmly to his hugely ambitious movie, and the film was drastically re-cut before hitting theaters in late 2007, when it failed to make much of an impact. But among film fanatics, the movie has been a much-argued-about talking point for more than a decade.

Kelly has only directed one other movie since then (2009’s The Box), but he recently revealed that he and his team have completed a 4K restoration of the infamous Cannes cut of Southland Tales, and that he still intends to direct a Southland Tales prequel which features both animation and live-action. Read his latest update below. Read More »

Rowling created a Harry Potter hub for kids and teachers at home, and a new batch of fun opportunities just became available for your home entertainment pleasure.

no time to die edit

No Time to Die was supposed to grace us with its presence this month, but then the coronavirus stepped in and threw a wrench into those plans. Now the latest James Bond film is set for a November release, which has lead some to wonder if director Cary Fukunaga would use this time to re-edit and perhaps polish the film more before its eventual release date. According to Fukunaga, the answer to that question is a big fat no. In fact, Fukunaga says the film is great as is already, and doesn’t need any more work.

While major studios have the resources to debut their theatrical releases early on digital and streaming platforms amid the nationwide shutdown of movie theaters due to coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns, indie filmmakers are being left without an audience for their small films.
