2015 is looking up a particularly good year to be a Carrie Brownstein fan. She'll be back on the road with the reunited Sleater-Kinney, who will also be dropping No Cities To Love, their first new album since 2005's The Woods. You'll also see Brownstein pop up in a role in Todd Haynes' "Carol." But before all that, "Portlandia," the show that has raised her profile over the last half decade, will be back, and a new trailer has arrived. And make no mistake, the fifth season of the hipster skewering show will be bigger than ever. Vanessa Bayer, Steve Buscemi, Shepard Fairey, Greta Gerwig, Peter Giles, Matt Groening, Anna Gunn, Justin Long, Jane Lynch, Natasha Lyonne, Seth Meyers, Brigitte Nielsen, Parker Posey, Paul Reubens, Paul Simon, Olivia Wilde and Oscar the Grouch are all confirmed to make appearances, with Jeff Goldblum, Kumail Nanjiani, Ed Begley Jr. and Kyle MacLachlan reprising their roles. »

The creative minds behind Loitering With Intent know the perils of being a writer. Director Adam Rapp embraces the words of scribes Michael Godere and Ivan Martin, bringing to life a comedy that’s already set tongues wagging. Certain movies frame the profession, hobby or the downright obsession of writing in a neat bundle. Many of those movies never depict the reality of what it actually means to populate a life with words. So, a movie about writing a movie ought to really set the record straight once and for all, and today we’ve got a peek at the first trailer.
With a starry cast including Marisa Tomei, Sam Rockwell, Natasha Lyonne, Brian Geraghty, Isabelle McNally, Michael Godere, and Ivan Martin, the story revolves around a pair of unemployed actors. Struggling to make ends meet, they wangle a producer into thinking they’ve got a red hot script. With »

A ticking clock, a couple of down-on-their-luck characters, quirky situations, and one last shot at redemption—these are all familiar ingredients that could be combined to create something far less than memorable. Thankfully director Adam Rapp and screenwriters Michael Godere and Ivan Martin made something fresh with "Loitering With Intent," and the first trailer landed today. Starring Marisa Tomei, Sam Rockwell, Natasha Lyonne, Brian Geraghty, Isabelle McNally, Michael Godere, and Ivan Martin, the story follows Raphael and Dominic, a couple out-of-work-actors who have 10 days to deliver a script that could be their last shot for a big break. They head to Dom's sister place in upstate New York, where they think they'll be able work in seclusion, but the arrival Gigi's boyfriend Wayne and his younger brother Devon creates unexpected chaos. This one is a winner, with our review out of the Tribeca Film Festival calling it, "fast, funny, and incredibly. »

Season five of Portlandia premieres on Jan. 8, and if you were excited about the creepy clip they teased on Halloween, you're going to love the full trailer. Guest stars Olivia Wilde and Jeff Goldblum are back joining Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen in IFC's offbeat comedy, and we also get sneak peeks at Paul Reubens and Brigitte Nielsen. Though they're not featured in the trailer, guest stars Seth Meyers, Matt Groening, Shepard Fairey, Greta Gerwig, Parker Posey, Paul Simon, Natasha Lyonne, Anna Gunn, and Justin Long are set to appear this season. The whole trailer has a somewhat ominous feel, and I like it. Take a look below! »
I enjoy a good film that is set around the entertainment industry. A couple of my favorites are Swimming With Sharks and The Player. Now I’ve got a new movie to look forward to seeing. It’s called Loitering with Intent, and the story follows two writers who have a short window of financing to complete a screenplay for their break-out film. This is kind of a meta type movie because the actual screenwriters of the feature, Michael Godere and Ivan Martin, also star as the screenwriters in the movie.

If you’ve ever wondered what Women & Women First looked like long before it opened its doors, Portlandia‘s fifth season — bowing in January — is for you.
Expect the episodes to go deep with your favorite characters, such as feminist bookstore owners Toni and Candace, who’ll reveal how they came to open Portland’s lady-championing storefront.
Despite the lottery-esque sounding odds, the U.S Dramatic Competition section which produces the finest American indie specimens such as Frozen River, Winter’s Bone, Blue Valentine, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Fruitvale Station and Whiplash is fairly consistent in terms of quality. Last year’s crop of sixteen have almost all had their theatrical releases with Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter being the last one out of the gates (pegged with an early 2015 release). Last week we individually looked at our top 80 Sundance Film Fest Predictions (you’ll find 30 other titles worth considering in our intro) and below, we’ve split the list into narrative and non-fiction film items and have both identified and color-coded our picks in an AtoZ cheat sheet. You’ll find 2015′s answer to Whiplash located somewhere in the stack below. Click on the individual titles below, for the film’s profile. »

Whether you are a filmmaker, or one of the Sundance programmers whose task it is to identify the films that make up a line-up, it is indeed the most wonderful, panic-filled and nerve racking time of the year. The 31st edition of the Sundance Film Festival kicks off on January 22nd with Park City and Salt Lake City playing host to some of the more innovative, thought-provoking narrative and non-fiction films of 2015. Last year, a Jenga tall order of 4,057 features and 8,161 shorts were submitted. Now let’s think about those numbers for a second.
Twenty years ago, Terry Zwigoff’s Crumb claimed the Grand Jury Prize Documentary award, Living in Oblivion‘s Tom Dicillo was honored with the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, and Edward Burns’ micro-budgeted The Brothers McMullen (there is a read-worthy, lively, eleventh hour account on how it was submitted to the fest in Ted Hope’s “Hope »

It was an admirable modest hit prior to leaving Park City in 2012, but who knew that Leslye Headland’s feature debut would turn into a major VOD hit? The RADiUS acquisitions people certainly had a hunch and played their Bachelorette cards right. It came as no surprise when filming commenced this past June on her New York City shot, sophomore film — which lined up Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis with supporting players Natasha Lyonne, Adam Scott, Amanda Peet and Margarita Levieva. It’s had plenty of time in post-production and it certainly feels like a high value acquisitions title that may or may not be too big for the fest. Nonetheless, Sleeping with Other People has some of that indie cred ingredients that could push it into the fest.

HBO has released the official Girls Season 4 trailer, teasing the new season of creator/writer/director/star Lena Dunham's divisive comedy series. This season finds Hannah (Dunham) living in Iowa, where she’s been accepted into the state’s highly coveted writers workshop. This being Girls, Hannah has big ideas and plans that don’t necessarily pan out the way she had hoped. What’s most promising about this trailer, though, is the high level of comedy mixed in with the drama. The series got a little too self-serious for its own good in the second season, and while Season 3 rebounded rather nicely, this trailer is really, really funny. It’s also relieving to see Adam Driver is still a major part of the ensemble, as he had to split his time between filming the fourth season and shooting this thing called Star Wars: The Force Awakens in London. »

They briefly appeared in walrus horror Tusk earlier this year, and now Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp are set to take centre stage in spinoff pic, Yoga Hosers. The two 15-year olds, daughters of Tusk‘s Kevin Smith and Johnny Depp, will both reprise their convenience store clerk roles for the upcoming movie. The amusingly-named duo, Colleen Collette (Depp) and Colleen McKenzie (Smith), are showcased here in the first image from the upcoming film.
The pic has arrived courtesy of THR, who landed the scoop, and shows the two teens in character behind a store counter. In the movie, written and directed by Smith, the pair of Colleens enlist the help of Johnny Depp’s Quebec police officer to battle a long-dormant evil. For a more in-depth look at the plot, here’s a brief synopsis:

The first official photo from Kevin Smith's film project Yoga Hosers has been released, and it features his daughter Harley Quinn Smith alongside Johnny Depp's daughter Lily-Rose Depp. It has also been revealed that the film is a spin-off of Smith's horror movie Tusk.
The movie stars Depp, who plays the same Quebec police detective that he played in Tusk, and in the story he enlists two convenience store clerks, who are played by his and Smith's daughters.

New cast members include Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Austin Butler, Adam Brody, Tyler Posey, and Jason Mewes.

While Tusk didn't light up the U.S. box office (it still has to see the light of day on this side of the pond), Kevin smith's True North trilogy of Canadian set horror movies continues with Yoga Hosers, and THR has the first image from the movie with the focus squarely on the two leads, Smith's own daughter Harley Quinn and Johnny Depp's daughter Lily Rose. Reprising their roles from Tusk, the two play high schoolers, working part time in a convenience store, who team up with Depp's legendary hunter Guy Lapointe (who played a big part in Tusk) to fight an ancient evil threatening to destroy the world (namely an army of FX monsters played by Smith himself). Most of the cast of Tusk, including Michael Parks, Justin Long, Haley Joel Osmet, and Genesis Rodriguez return, and they are joined by Adam Brody, Stan Lee, Tony Hale, »

Ironically, some of the celebrities encouraging young people to vote did not cast their ballot in the last midterm elections.
Midterm elections are tomorrow, but are the celebrities pushing young voters to turn out actually walking the walk like their Rock The Vote campaign urges?
In a PSA that began airing a month ago, Rock The Vote enlisted famous faces and changed the lyrics to Lil Jon's "Turn Down For What" to "Turn Out For What" – all part of the organization's ongoing efforts to inspire and excite young people to vote for important issues.
In the ad, Lil Jon advocates for the legalization of marijuana, Girls' Lena Dunham supports reproductive rights, Glee's Darren Criss is there for education reform, Orange Is the New Black's Natasha Lyonne shows up for better prison policies, and Rich Kids of Beverly Hills' E.J. Johnson goes for marriage equality.
But The Washington Post reports that none of those »

Pee-wee's Big Adventure isn't over just yet: Paul Reubens went on The Tonight Show Wednesday evening and confirmed another Pee-wee movie is in the works. Reubens starred as the lovably weird Pee-wee Herman in the 1986 movie, Tim Burton's first. He went on to reprise the role in Pee-wee's Playhouse, a TV series that ran from 1986 to 1990 and featured appearances by now-famous actors like Black-ish's Laurence Fishburne and Orange is the New Black's Natasha Lyonne. But now, he's returning to the big screen. While it was already announced years ago that there would be another Pee-wee movie, there »

Gary Michael Schultz will direct from his own screenplay. Shooting will start in Louisiana in December.
International sales are being handled by Fortitude International, which will present the project to buyers at the upcoming Afm. Wme represents the film’s domestic distribution rights.
The film follows a down-on-their-luck pair of rebels who fall in love and fall apart when their violent pasts catch up with them. “’Vincent-n-Roxxy’ is a very personal story for me and, at its core, it is a story about love, family and the unrelenting presence of violence,” said Schultz.

The sequel to 1988's hit fright flick “Beetlejuice,” is currently searching for investors. Too bad it's Barry Burton, not Tim Burton, who is helming the project. See photos: Halloween in Hollywood Costume Contest — You Be the Judge! In a new Funny or Die video, “Orange is the New Black” actress Natasha Lyonne has been tapped to replace Michael Keaton as the star of the film. The fake and befuddled Burton explains: “She's the fiery fucking redhead on the prison sex movie ‘Orange is the New Jack.’ Everybody loves her.” Lyonne dresses in the full costume and makeup as the original movie ghost, »

Finally, the "Beetlejuice" sequel we deserve. Michael Keaton is out because he's too busy with "Birdman," but Funny Or Die has graciously provided us with a worthy replacement in Natasha Lyonne. Duh! The "Orange is the New Black" star shows us she's spooky as hell in this update of our favorite Winona Ryder movie. Besides "Heathers," I mean. And "The Age of Innocence." And "Little Women." Ok, it's only a fairly good Winona Ryder movie. Whatever. Go Natasha! »
