ABC's giving 'Being Erica' an American spin: Our 5 picks to play the time traveler

16 December 2010 7:50 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Finally, "Being Erica" is getting the attention it deserves. The Canadian series, which even its countrymen feel is more appreciated by U.S. fans, is getting an American adaptation courtesy of ABC, according to Variety.

The sci-fi/ fantasy/ rom-com mash-up follows thirty-something Erica Strange, a quirky ne'er-do-well, who gets the chance to travel back in time to fix past regrets. Along the way, her heavenly therapist forces her to face moments she didn't even know she regretted.

ABC has tapped former "Dawson's Creek" and "Eastwick" writer, Maggie Friedman, to pen the pilot and executive produce. That's a mixed bag for us, since we can't say we were fans of the fallen ABC series, but we're definitely "Creek-fans." In fact, we have lots of worries about what moving to America will do to a series we feel is practically perfect, but the TV gods want what they want. We only get »

Exclusive Interview with Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III Creator Matthew Senreich

14 December 2010 11:33 AM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

It wouldn’t be the holidays without another Star Wars parody, would it? On Sunday night, December 19th, Adult Swim will show Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III in an hour-long special that will be a singular story instead of the usual mixed bag of sketches Seth Green and company cook up. Starring in the special is Green as Chewbaca; the Emperor (Seth MacFarlane) Darth Vader (Abe Benrubi). Watch Gary the Stormtrooper (Donald Faison) Boba Fett (Breckin Meyer). Also guest-starring are Zac Efron (Anakin Skywalker), Rachael Leigh Cook (Padme), Donald Glover (Mace Windu) and Mike Henry (Wedge Antilles), with Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams and Ahmed Best as their infamous Star Wars counterparts, C-3Po, Lando Calrissian and Jar Jar Binks. BuzzFocus spoke with co-creator, Matthew Senreich about what fans can expect out of this third Star Wars-Robot Chicken special. “We wanted to have some kind of continuity, »

Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III Heads Home for the Holiday (+ Stills)

10 December 2010 12:46 AM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

We've got 8 stills from the upcoming Adult Swim special hour-long event: Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III. The episode will debut on Sunday, December 19, 2010, on Cartoon Network. The hour-long special features the vocal talents of Zac Efron (Anakin Skywalker), Rachael Leigh Cook (Padmé), Donald Glover (Mace Windu) and Mike Henry (Wedge Antilles), with Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams and Ahmed Best reprising their famous roles as C-3Po, Lando Calrissian and the infamous Jar Jar Binks. Yes, Jar Jar Binks is back. Let's hope he gets killed once and for all. Or, even better, kill Jar Jar Binks about twenty times and bring him back each time for another unmerciful death as if it were a Wu Tang Clan torture intermission (check out the "Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers" and you'll know what I'm taking about). Anything less and the viewers will have to incite a whole new separatist rebellion. About »

As you no doubt noticed, Uncle Creepy has been busily bringing you early news and photos from several of the recently announced films that will be playing at Sundance 2011, both in competition and out. But he hasn't quite covered everything yet so here's a list of all the even slightly genre-related offerings that are a part of the upcoming Sundance film festival (running January 20-30).

In Competition:

On the Ice (Director and screenwriter: Andrew Okpeaha MacLean) - On the snow-covered Arctic tundra, two teenagers try to get away with murder. Cast: Josiah Patkotak, Frank Qutuq Irelan, Teddy Kyle Smith, Adamina Kerr, Sierra Jade Sampson. (More thriller than horror, we still thought it worth mentioning).

Take Shelter (Director and screenwriter: Jeff Nichols) - A working-class husband and father questions whether his terrifying dreams of an apocalyptic storm signal something real to come or the onset of an inherited mental illness he's feared his whole life. »

1 December 2010 2:06 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

As we’re getting ready to wrap up another great year of film, some are already looking to 2011 and what it will have to offer and what better way to look a head than with the first round of titles for the year’s first big festival: Sundance.

The list of festival titles isn’t as loaded with as many big name titles as have made the cut in previous years but there’s are definitely some interesting film in the competition line-up including Mike Cahill’s Another Earth which takes place on the eve of the discovery of a duplicate Earth (wicked!), Carlos Moreno’s All Our Dead One (Todos Tus Muertos) about a guy who finds a pile of dead bodies in the middle of his crops, Anne Sewitsky’s sexual drama Happy, Happy (Sykt Lykkelig) along with the Canadian/Japanese co-production Vampire.

Loads of great stuff on the line-up. »

2011 Sundance Film Festival Competition Films Announced

1 December 2010 1:57 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The announcement of the movies playing the 2011 Sundance Film Festival is like looking into our film futures. It's December and most movie fans are looking back at the last 12 months, picking out award winners, writing top ten lists, and chances are we haven't even heard of the Sundance films. They're just titles, people, words on a computer screen. Then in January they unspool on screens across Park City, Utah and become something more. Finally, months later, these are the movies we discuss with our friends and choose on ballots at awards parties. Yet we get to read about them now, a year in advance. Last year at this time, who had heard of Four Lions, Catfish, Exit Through The Gift Shop, Blue Valentine, The Kids Are All Right, Winter's Bone, Restrepo or Animal Kingdom? Sundance, that's who. All those films screened at the 2010 festival and now many have become not only personal favorites, »
