After 30 Years, 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' Devotees Finish Adaptation

19 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's like Boyhood meets American Movie: In 1982, a pair of 12-year-old best friends, Chris Strompolos and Eric Zala, embarked on a journey to create a shot-by-shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark on a shoestring budget with a cast of friends and non-actors. With Strompolos portraying Indiana Jones and Zala serving as director and the villain Rene Belloq, it took the two teenagers seven years to complete their adaptation of Raiders; the viewer watches them age from 12 to 19 as the film moves toward its Ark of the Covenant-opening end. »

SXSW 15: Watch the trailer for ‘Raiders!’, documentary on shot for shot remake of Indiana Jones by 11-year-olds

26 February 2015 9:32 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Just days ago we were declaring Power/Rangers absolutely fantastic, but it may have its work cut out for him in the documentary Raiders! The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made. Set to premiere at South by Southwest in March, Raiders! tells the story of two 11-year-old kids who in 1982 became obsessed with Steven Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark and sought to remake it shot for shot (take that Gus van Sant! That’ll teach you to remake Psycho).

Though they worked for seven years, sadly, the kids never finished the project with only one scene remaining to film, and went their separate ways. A tape made its way into the hands of Eli Roth and subsequently Ain’t It Cool News’s Harry Knowles, who screened the fan-made remake at a festival. Raiders! ultimately follows the two kids, now grown, as they get back together »

Raiders!, a documentary of the story behind the greatest fan film ever made, is set to have its world premiere at SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX on March 14, 2015.

Ana De Armas To Play Miles Teller’s Girlfriend In Arms And The Dudes

13 February 2015 2:49 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Todd Phillips’ post-Hangover career is taking a swift turn into meatier territory with his upcoming movie, Arms And The Dudes, which has now added yet another new name to its starry line-up. Per Deadline, Ana De Armas has signed on to star alongside the recently-announced Miles Teller as his girlfriend.

For those unfamiliar with the movie, it’s based on a Rolling Stone article by Guy Lawson that revolves around the mishaps of a couple of stoners who wind up dealing weapons. Originally, Jesse Eisenberg and Shia LeBeouf were down to play the pair, until scheduling conflicts arose leaving the parts available for Oscar-nominee Jonah Hill and Teller. Also on board to produce are Scott Budnick, Mark Gordon, and Bryan Zuriff from a script by Jason Smilovic.

The movie marks another step up the industry ladder for Armas. The actress’ latest effort, Eli Roth’s Knock Knock, saw her star alongside Keanu Reeves. »

Review: Keanu Reeves plays a dangerous sex game in Eli Roth's 'Knock Knock'

9 February 2015 1:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City - Sundance saw the debut of not one but two films that both fit the broad definition of a "horror film," each with decidedly strong ideas about gender politics, but only one of the two seems to me to be genuinely worthwhile. Eli Roth has become defined largely by the excesses of his films, and I'm sure that's perfectly fine with him. Like many life-long gorehounds, when finally given a chance to make his own films, he happily ladled on buckets of blood. What I found interesting about Eli's films is how he seemed to be working one theme repeatedly, constantly exploring the fear that people have of the unknown in the world around them. "Cabin Fever," "Hostel," "Hostel II," and "The Green Inferno" all feature characters leaving their homes, the places where they are comfortable, and heading out to some corner of the world where they are »
