Netflix has released the first images from its Wet Hot American Summer revival series, First Day at Camp, and they are everything fans could hope for. The prequel to the 2001 film again takes place in 1981, which of course only augments the hilarity that the cast (originally in their 30s playing teenagers) are 15 years older now, and playing even (ever so slightly) younger characters. All of the film's original cast will be returning, including Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander,Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon and Michael Showalter. And, as previously reported, other returning actors are H. Jon BenjaminNina HellmanA.D. MilesMarisa RyanKevin Sussman, and David Wain (who will again write and direct, with Showalter serving as showrunner). New cast members will include Michaela Watkins, Josh Charles, John Slattery »

Film Movement Picks Up Justin Lerner's SXSW Pick 'The Automatic Hate'

14 May 2015 9:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Justin Lerner's "The Automatic Hate" premiered this past March at South By Southwest in the Narrative Spotlight section and has finally found a home with Film Movement. The company has acquired all North American rights to the film and is planning a winter release following more festival screenings, including at the Seattle International Film Festival later in May. "The Automatic Hate" stars Joseph Cross, Adelaide Clemens, Richard Schiff and Deborah Ann Woll. The screenplay was co-written by Lerner and Katharine O'Brien. The story explores what happens when a young man meets a side of his family he's never known and begins feeling a taboo attraction to his cousin.  Said Lerner, "It's been such an exciting journey already, which began at SXSW, and now to be partnering with a company like Film Movement -- that has such class and taste in both foreign and American independent cinema -- we feel »

A 'Romeo and Juliet' Story Turns Incestuous in Seattle Film Fest Entry 'The Automatic Hate'

12 May 2015 1:56 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

I met director Justin Lerner in Austin at a hole-in-the-wall bar during the SXSW Film Festival, where he pitched his effectively eerie family drama "The Automatic Hate" as a combo of Thomas Vinterberg's "The Celebration" and Robert Altman's "The Long Goodbye." A shrieking Dogme95 incest drama meets a Raymond Chandler potboiler? I was intrigued. Writer/director Lerner and co-writer Katharine O'Brien set up a bait-and-switch mystery that then pulls us into the world of an unstable and broken family as their buried grudges of the past come into shattering present-day focus. "Automatic Hate" begins as an alluring young blonde (Adelaide Clemens) drops on the doorstep of Davis (Joseph Cross) and tells him she's his cousin. He does not know the girl, who says her name is Alexis. His curiosity titillated, Davis follows her out of his boring city life and into the Upstate New York backwoods — at the »

'Smallville' Pa Kent Better Than 'Man of Steel' Says John Schneider

14 March 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Former The Dukes of Hazzard star John Schneider can breathe easy knowing that Pa Kent won't be featured, as far as we know, in the upcoming Man of Steel follow-up Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The actor portrayed Clark Kent's adoptive father Jonathan on Smallville. Having some ownership over the iconic DC character, he doesn't mind saying his is the best version yet, and possibly ever.

John Schneider doesn't have a problem with Kevin Costner or his performance in Man of Steel. His problems lie within the writing of the character itself. Even though there is a long list of actors who have played Johnathan Kent throughout the years, John Schneider truly believes that the writers of Smallville were able to capture the true essence of the character better than anyone before or after. He explains:

"I love Kevin, I love what Kevin does. I didn't care for the fact that they wanted. »

Ten unacquired Sundance 2015 films we still hope to see someday

9 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Stockholm, Pennsylvania

Every year, the Sundance Film Festival finds itself packed with several promising features, filled with established performers and breakout stars, and filmmakers screening their first feature alongside veterans of the profession. One of the unfortunate downsides of such a rich array of features, however, is that not every film is able to secure a distributor during the length of the festival, regardless of how intriguing or well-made they are. Here are ten features from the 2015 incarnation of the festival that found themselves without distribution, but which hopefully do become available to the non-festival viewing audience at some point. As with past incarnations of this list, the films are in alphabetical order.

1) Advantageous

The science fiction genre has often allowed filmmakers to explore current day issues in allegory form, allowing them to dig into what causes societal concerns by viewing it from a different perspective. In that sense, Jennifer Phang »

Sundance Review: 'Take Me to the River' Announces the Arrival of a Promising New Filmmaking Talent

30 January 2015 2:15 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In "Take Me to the River," Logan Miller excels as a young gay man at once comfortable with his sexual identity while concealing it from an extended family largely for the comfort of his parents. Miller, who also appears in the Sundance title "The Stanford Prison Experiment," nails every note of his character’s disaffection and chronic discomfort at a chaotic family reunion in Nebraska. Writer-director Matt Sobel's quietly engaging debut is one of the great discoveries of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival: His fish-out-of-water observations have a personal edge — the film is shot partly on his own extended family's Nebraskan property — but it soon builds to a place of nightmarish psychosexual revelations. The film starts with 17-year-old Ryder (Miller) pleading to his parents, played by Robin Weigert and Richard Schiff (Toby on "The West Wing"), to allow him to tell his extended family at their reunion in Nebraska that »
