5 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Jeff Daniel Phillips (The Lords of Salem, Halloween 2) portrays Roscoe, "the ass-kicking carney mechanic of Venus Virgo’s traveling show." Jane Carr (Curb Your Enthusiasm, How I Met Your Mother) plays Sister Serpent, "a wicked cross of Satan meets Mother Goose. »

SXSW 2015: Hollywood Heads to Austin for Annual Festivities

20 March 2015 5:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hollywood headed down south for the 2015 SXSW film, interactive and music festival in Austin, Texas, for the annual 10-day event, which wraps up on March 22.

SXSW kicked off on Friday the 13th, very fittingly with a haunted house party, hosted by Wgn America’s supernatural thriller “Salem.”

“No one wants to go up those flights of stairs over and over and over again. Once you’re up, you kind of just stay here,” star Shane West joked about the jam-packed rooftop soireé, which was complete with aerialists (a.k.a. levitating enchantresses) and apothecaries — better known as multiple bars — as he sipped on a cocktail.

“It’s funky-town,” new cast member Lucy Lawless told Variety, hours after arriving at SXSW with her co-stars (the entire “Salem” cast took a six-hour road trip together from their Shreveport, La., set to Austin, thanks to their flights being canceled at the last minute). “[Austin] has got so much character. »

Watch: 90-Minute 'The Director's Chair' Episode With Robert Rodriguez And Quentin Tarantino

18 March 2015 9:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The long and fruitful friendship between Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez probably began with 1994’s “Four Rooms” (remember that one?). That film, an anthology comedy set in a Los Angeles hotel on New Year’s eve, could be described in a word as “unfortunate,” but it cemented what would become a strong working alliance between two very talented and different artists (for the record, Tarantino’s segment, “The Man from Hollywood” can at least be said to be an interesting failure while Rodriguez’s “The Misbehavers” just isn’t very good). The two young maverick movie geeks linked up next on Rodriguez’s hellacious vampire western “From Dusk ‘Till Dawn,” with Tarantino writing the script and playing the creepy second banana to then rising star leading man George Clooney (the reviews at the time weren’t kind to him, nor the movie itself). The friendship reached a fever pitch with »

Watch: 46-Minute Episode Of 'The Director's Chair' With John Carpenter

17 March 2015 9:49 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Talk about the meeting of two generations — late last year, self-admitted John Carpenter super-fan Robert Rodriguez sat down to speak with the legendary horror director for the premiere episode of “The Director’s Chair.” The series, which sporadically debuts new episodes on El Rey Network, features Rodriguez interviewing other famous Hollywood directors. Rodriguez launched El Rey in 2013 in a deal with Univision to bring English-language content to a target demographic of Latino audiences, and as he admits, “It’s quite fitting that the man who has more films on the El Rey Network than any other filmmaker be our first guest on this first episode of 'The Director’s Chair.' " Before we get to what they talked about, Rodriguez’s impetus for interviewing other directors is pretty intriguing, and not something you often hear other filmmakers state openly. He puts it to Carpenter, “A filmmaker doesn’t automatically know how another filmmaker does it. »

Jimmy Kimmel took his ABC show to Austin, Texas, for the week to celebrate the annual SXSW festival.

“We’re here for a whole week because that’s how long it takes to get to the front of the line at Franklins,” Kimmel joked of a popular barbecue house in Austin. He added that, in just his first few days down South, he’s indulged in burgers, queso, banana cream pie and a fair amount of alcohol.

“This town turns you into an animal,” he said.

2015 First Time Fest – Harvey Weinstein Interview

16 March 2015 5:22 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Johanna Bennett’s and Mandy Ward’s third annual celebration of first time filmmakers concluded on March 9 with a tribute to no one other than Harvey Weinstein. The festival, one that puts forth newly formed filmmakers with the audience they deserve, makes sure that all aspects of filmmaking are met and that the aspiring filmmakers know what to do with their next film. Weinstein, of the famed The Weinstein Company, along with his brother Bob, has shown himself over the years to have supported first time filmmakers when no one else would. And his trust in these filmmakers have only proven themselves to be some of today’s best directors, writers, actors, and more.

In many ways, Weinstein’s support of such filmmakers has created them. Quentin Tarantino would not be a household name had Weinstein not decided to produce Reservoir Dogs, the same goes for Steven Soderbergh’s Sex, »

This Week in TV News: ‘The Walking Dead’ spinoff gets picked up for at least two seasons

14 March 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This Week in TV News is a compliment to the Week in Review feature, which will now be focused on film news. 

AMC has guaranteed two seasons to the prequel companion series of The Walking Dead, as per THR. The announcement was made earlier this week, and comes as somewhat unsurprising news. The Walking Dead continues to be one of the channel’s highest rated shows, with its popularity showing no signs of waning as the show’s fifth season rolls along. In addition, AMC has found similar commercial and critical success with Better Call Saul, its new series that is itself a spinoff of Breaking Bad.

There’s no set title for the series as of yet, and working titles have included Fear The Walking Dead and Cobalt. The first season, much like the show that spawned this spinoff, will consist of six episodes, with creator Robert Kirkman working »

13 March 2015 10:27 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Over on the El Rey network, Robert Rodriguez has been putting together a growing number of insightful filmmaker talks with his "The Director's Chair" series. So far, John Carpenter, Guillermo del Toro, and Quentin Tarantino have sat down in conversation with Rodriguez, and the latest director to stop by, is none other than the legendary Francis Ford Coppola. Across forty-five minutes, the always interesting Coppola recounts the origins of his fascination with storytelling (comparing himself to Max Fischer from "Rushmore" at one point), various aspects of shooting "The Godfather" (including collapsing when Paramount told him he couldn't hire Marlon Brando), the three stipulations he had before agreeing to make the sequel, and more. There's lots to take in and this is a must watch for any cinephile, so take a break and watch below.  »
