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 »

First Official Trailer For ‘Ted 2′

29 January 2015 12:01 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Seth Macfarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West, may have underperformed in the eyes of audiences and critics. However, the hilariously opinionated and outspoken star still struck gold with his 2012 smash hit comedy behemoth, Ted. After Universal Studios received over ten times the budget of their R rated production in ticket sales, it came as little surprise to learn that Ted 2 was on the horizon.

Not only did the original film manage to make Mark Wahlberg an A-list, household name, but it also effectively demonstrated that Macfarlane’s crude comedy style can translate to the big screen with ease. With Family Guy, American Dad and… *ahem* The Cleveland Show , all proving that their is indeed a huge market for this particular brand of humour, it seems strange that it has taken this long for Macfarlane to make the jump to the big screen.

With that in mind, »

First Trailer For Ted 2 Finds The Thunder Buddies In A Spot Of Legal Trouble

29 January 2015 9:51 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hot on the fuzzy heels of Tuesday’s tongue-in-cheek poster is the first full-length trailer for Seth MacFarlane’s comedy sequel, Ted 2.

Reuniting The Gambler star Mark Wahlberg with his pint-sized companion, the clip sees the thunder buddies in a spot of legal bother with Ted having to prove his credentials as human by providing a valuable contribution to society (okay, stop sniggering at the back). Such a predicament will see the dynamic, foul-mouthed duo encounter Morgan Freeman’s sharp-suited lawyer and Amanda Seyfried’s Samantha Lesley Jackson — cue the comparisons to a certain other Samuel L. Jackson.

It’s the latter star who will also turn out to be a love interest for Wahlberg’s John Bennett — in lieu of Mila Kunis — while Ted encounters relationship quandaries of his own when he and his new wife make plans to have a baby. Interestingly, Liam Nesson is absent from this newly-released trailer, »

29 January 2015 2:28 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for its new eight-episode mini-series prequel Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, reports Deadline.

Netflix’s ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Cast by the Numbers

28 January 2015 6:52 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Even though news surfaced that the entire cast of Wet Hot American Summer was set to return for Netflix’s original TV series, it wasn’t officially confirmed by the streaming network until it released a 50-second teaser touting most of the original stars’ names.

The returning cast includes: 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.

While the teaser didn’t offer much outside of the cast names and an official synopsis, which states it will take place on the first day of Camp Firewood’s most famous summer, it did remind us of the star-studded power that will soon be reuniting for eight episodes.

Sundance Exclusive: Photos From ‘Take Me To The River’ Starring Robin Weigert, Josh Hamilton & Logan Miller

21 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For the more adventurous viewer, the Sundance Film Festival’s Next section is where it’s at, and where some of the most creative filmmaking discoveries come from. Last year gave us Ana Lily Amirpour's "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night" (with the director since setting up her next movie at Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures), Desiree Akhavan's "Appropriate Behavior" and Gillian Robespierre’s “Obvious Child” which became a big indie comedy hit last year, among others. We don’t yet know what will stand out this year, but one strong contender, mentioned in our Most Anticipated Sundance 2015 Film Fest picks, is Matt Sobel’s “Take Me To The River.” A movie about secrets and the layers of misunderstanding and misperceptions between family, “Take Me To The River” is also a little bit like a mysterious waking dream. Starring up-and-comer Logan Miller, Robin Weigert (Sundance drama “Concussion”), Josh Hamilton, »

19 January 2015 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Rupert Wyatt

Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lange, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Michael K. Williams, Leland Orser, Emory Cohen, George Kennedy, Richard Schiff

Certificate: 15

Run Time: 111 minutes

Synopsis:  The death of a beloved grandfather sends a literature professor with a high-stake gambling addiction on a path of self-loathing and destruction as he counter-balances mounting gaming debts with borrowed money from a number of dangerous loan sharks.

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes’s Rupert Wyatt shows viewers a glimpse into the havoc of an entitled and self-indulgent whiner hell-bent on self-destruction in his latest film The Gambler that stars Mark Wahlberg in the lead role.

Rebooted from James Toback’s original 1974 film starring James Caan, Wyatt’s direction and William Monahan’s screenplay are decidedly different from their predecessors: not only in comparable terms (the protagonist is still a gambling addicted literature professor and disgraced scion of a wealthy »
