A flying Martin Short descended onto the stage with the help of some harnesses and Vegas-esque showgirls to host the inaugural Canadian Screen Awards in Toronto last night. His opening song-and-dance number gave Seth MacFarlane's Oscar hosting gig a run for the money with its cleverly Canadian lyrics and theatricality. The newly created awards are an amalgam of the Genie Awards which celebrated the best in Canadian film, and the Gemini Awards which honour the best in Canadian television. Since we’ve been mixing up the similarly-hounding Geminis and Genies for years, the Canadian Screen Awards are a welcome change.
The new-found awards are bigger and showier than their forerunners and featured presenters like Sandra Oh, Jay Baruchel, James Cromwell, Genevieve Bujold, and Adam Beach, just to name a few of the stars who graced the stage in the televised and non-televised portions of the show. The awards recognize »

The slew of Los Angeles-based Canadian talent brought to Toronto aims to help lift a major rebrand of Canada’s film and TV awards after the Academy of Canadian Cinema &

Remember David Hackl's long forgotten bear attack flick 'Red Machine'? No, neither did we. That is until this latest bit of goss straight from the lips of one of its stars... Billy Bob Thornton arrived to jog our memories. Bill revealed some more details from the movie on his official site. He has given us a full plot breakdown with exactly who is doing what in the flick as well as giving us a 'What Billy Bob Gets To Do' description which states 'Ride a horse, hunt a bear, mysterious appear and disappear in the woods.' So there you have it, head below for the interesting read for 'Red Machine' which stars Thornton alongside James Marsden ('Straw Dogs'), Thomas Jane ('The Mist'), the gorgeous Piper Perabo ('Carriers'), Adam Beach ('Cowboys and Aliens'), Scott Glenn ('Sucker Punch' »
I think most people will be sold by the mere idea of a grizzly bear thriller starring Billy Bob Thornton. In case that doesn’t, Billy Bob Thornton has set out to give Red Machine a synopsis in his own words. Check it out:
James Marsden (X Men, Enchanted) and Thomas Jane (Hung, yes, and so good in The Mist) are a pair of estranged brothers who enter the wilderness. Marsden, fresh out of jail, is the ne’er-do-well who has come home to settle somed unfinished business. Jane is the town sheriff who helps his fiancée track the local fauna. Their outing in the great white north takes off, but goes horribly south when they are attacked, then relentlessly pursued by a monstrous and seriously territorial grizzly bear. This is clearly not Yogi Bear or Gentle Ben territory because this particular specimen of Ursus arctos horribilis goes by the nickname Red Machine. »

One project we haven't heard about in a bit is Red Machine, the man-versus-nature thriller directed by David Hackl (Saw V) and starring James Marsden, Piper Perabo, Thomas Jane, Billy Bob Thornton, Scott Glenn, Kelly Curran, Michaela McManus and Adam Beach. While we await release plans for the film (we're told it has found a home and is awaiting a release date), let's turn our attention to Thornton's official site where the man explains the film in his own word...
