The Spoils Before Dying: Fox UK, 10:30pm
Do we have a new (mini-)trend on our hands? With the announcement last Friday of "A Christmas Horror Story" -- a new holiday-themed anthology fright flick starring William Shatner -- we now have four, count 'em four, Krampus movies either in development or slated for release. While the Shatner film will feature the demonic "anti-Claus" in only one segment of the story, it nevertheless marks the folkloric creature's sudden and unexpected breakthrough as the hottest monster in the movie business. First, a quick rundown of the other Krampus-themed films: 1. "Krampus," an Amblin-esque horror-comedy directed by "Trick 'r Treat" helmer Michael Dougherty and starring Adam Scott and Toni Collette as parents doing battle with the titular monster during the holidays; 2. "Anti-Claus," a Kevin Smith film that will reunite "Tusk" cast members Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez and Michael Parks; 3. "Happy Krampus!", a family-themed take on the character »

Filmmaker Coley Sohn has launching a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to start filming the gay marriage comedy “Dodie and Cheryl Get Hitched.”
Sohn has been joined by producer Matt Horwitz of Echo Lake and “Transparent” casting director Eyde Belasco to raise $200,000 for production. The film, which has not been cast, is an offbeat comedy about two small town lesbians who decide to get married and the ugly swell of hypocrisy they have to face.
“Yes, gay marriage is now legal everywhere which is tremendous and mind boggling historic,” Sohn said. “But the fight for equality is far from being over. Getting a movie like ‘Dodie & Cheryl Get Hitched’ out there will challenge people to stand up and take notice.”
Kickstarter has selected the project as a Staff Pick and raised over $7,000 on its first day. Premiums include being in the movie’s wedding scene for $2,000.
The campaign hopes to capitalize »

IFC is “Always On, Slightly Off,” per its tagline. Lately the network is always landing on the radar of today’s top comedy star–as evidenced by the Will Ferrell-Kristen Wiig-Maya Rudolph-Michael K. Williams-Haley Joel Osment-Emily Ratajkowski-Tim Robbins-Michael Sheen miniseries “The Spoils Before Dying,” which premieres Wednesday night. President Jen Caserta led IFC’s rebrand from the Independent Film Channel in 2010, transitioning to a TV comedy-focused network. It took a little time, but the stars soon flocked to her with their pet projects that they couldn’t place anywhere else. »

Directed by Doug Ellin.
Movie star Vincent Chase, together with his boys Eric, Turtle, and Johnny, are back – and back in business with super agent-turned-studio head Ari Gold on a risky project that will serve as Vince’s directorial debut.
HBO’s Entourage, a show about the glitz, glamour and dark underbelly of Hollywood, half inspired by co-developer Mark Wahlberg’s real early life in tinsel town, is something of an acquired taste. Therefore I should really preface this by saying how big of a fan I am. It would be deceptive not to. And by big, I mean massive. If fans were movie stars, I’d be Vincent Chase. Perhaps (okay, undoubtedly) that’s the reason I enjoyed this film so much; certainly, any film »

“It’s probably the first film that didn’t condescend to American teenagers.”
“There wouldn’t be a John Hughes movie without it,” Mitchell continued.
The event concluded this year’s Los Angeles Film Festival with a one-night-only reading, chosen and directed by filmmaker Eli Roth, and performed exclusively for those present in the audience. As always, no recordings were allowed.
Roth is known for extreme horror films, so his selection of a teen comedy may have seemed surprising to some. But the 43-year old director is an avowed fan of ’80s high school movies like “Porky’s,” “The Last American Virgin” and “Zapped!” which made his choice almost inevitable.
“‘Fast Times’ is one of my all-time favorite movies,” Roth told »

Director: Doug Ellin; Screenwriter: Doug Ellin, Rob Weiss; Starring: Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara, Jeremy Piven, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Billy Bob Thornton, Haley Joel Osment; Running time: 104 mins; Certificate: 15
An entertaining and undemanding watch on the small screen, HBO's Entourage lifted the lid on the glitz and glamour of Hollywood to show what it might be like to live the life of a movie A-lister. Heavy on star cameos and bro banter, the show whizzed by in 30-minute instalments and swiftly built up a cult following.
There was something hugely appealing about living vicariously through fast-rising star Vincent Chase and his boys from Queens. That's not to mention Jeremy Piven's agent Ari Gold, whose unwavering loyalty to Vince was matched only by his explosive temper.
An Entourage film has been long in the works, though its arrival long after the show's creative and pop cultural peak can't »
