Film Stills: Sean Durkin's Martha Marcy May Marlene

8 December 2010 1:15 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

I'm really late on this one - but it's worth the mention and showcasing all the same. The first batch of stills for Sean Durkin's Martha Marcy May Marlene were released not much time after the film was named among Sundance's U.S Dramatic Competition. Below we see the film's lead in Elizabeth Olsen, and supporting actors John Hawkes and Sarah Paulson. The film is not necessarily an expansion of Durkin's impressive short film Mary Last Seen, but it borrows from the same ideas and apart from setting, we'll soon see if both films share other common traits such as the characters and film's tone. Synopsis: Haunted by painful memories and increasing paranoia, a damaged woman struggles to reassimilate with her family after fleeing an abusive cult. »

Reilly, the financial thriller Margin Call starring Kevin Spacey, Stanley Tucci, and Zachary Quinto. There is also Homework starring Emma Roberts and a bit of schlocky fun with new Hobo With a Shotgun and Troll Hunter stills. I’ve included most of them below, along with plot synopsis, but check out Collider and Dread Central for more.

Higher Ground (dir. Vera Farmiga)

Synopsis:

A frustrated young mother turns to a fundamentalist community for answers, but after years of dogma and loss, she must find the courage to ask the questions that will help her reclaim her life.

Sundance 2011 announces competition titles

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, »
