The project, which stars Rob Benedict and Lizzy Caplan, centers around 40-year-old professional sidekick Max McCabe (Benedict), now past his prime and forced out of the fast-paced superhero world. When he is abruptly fired by his boss, the epic Captain Wonder (Ron Livingston), and replaced by a younger, quicker right-hand man, Kid Loco (Jason Ritter), Max has no choice but to somehow find a place for himself in the civilian world. With the help of his newfound friend (Caplan), Max finds the courage to re-evaluate his life and find a new purpose. Jordan Peele, Martin Starr, Sam McMurray, Ike Barinholtz,

I’m a huge “Piranha” fan, and I’ll watch anything (anything that is!) pertaining to lake horror. Hockey masked killers, prehistoric monsters, government altered mutated fish, toxic waste mutated marine life and even zombies, are all enhanced when set at a lake. It’s in a more confined space than the ocean, there’s usually plenty of expendable characters getting their vacation on to up the body count, and it makes one think twice that fresh water is absolutely, positively safe.
“Blood Lake” is an Asylum film that deals with something that is creepy enough as
After scoring it big with Sharknado, The Asylum spread their wings, moving from Syfy to Animal Planet with Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys, which sees Michael, a fish and wildlife expert, move to a small Michigan town with his wife, Cate (Doherty), after being summoned by the town mayor, Akerman (Lloyd), to help deal with its growing lamprey problem after they slide their way into the city’s sewer system. With their giant-toothed, funnel-like mouths attacking all those in their path, the town’s residents quickly learn that a casual dip in the pool, fishing trip or routine trip to the toilet can turn deadly as the killer lampreys hunt for their next victim(s
Cinema Management Group is currently in talks with buyers about Paranormal Movie, a "found footage" parody that satirizes the tropes of “found footage” horror films. Directed by and starring Kevin Farley (Dirty Work), the film is currently in post-production and is scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2013.
Paranormal Movie tells the story of Larry, a bumbling and inept man-child who has spent his entire life documenting everything he does in front of a video camera. Now that he and his new girlfriend have moved into a house plagued with strange occurrences, Larry is determined to capture the poltergeist on tape and rid the home of its supernatural infestation.
In addition to Kevin Farley, Paranormal Movie
hollywoodnews.com: We don’t yet have a clear-cut frontrunner in the Oscar race. There is support in certain circles for such films as “Moneyball,” “The Descendants” and “The Help.” We’re still waiting to see “War Horse,” “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and Stephen Daldry’s “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.” A lot can change between now and then.
One thing that hasn’t wavered, however, is the audience support for Michel Hazanavicius’s “The Artist,” which started charming patrons back at Cannes. The film’s latest conquest was The 2011 Austin Film Festival, which took home the Audience Award for the Out-of-Competition category at this year’s fest.
Totally understandable. It is an absolute crowd pleaser, and I expect it to play extremely well with Academy members this season. Well enough to win the Best Picture prize? Only time will tell.
Here are the
When Murphy was announced as the host of next Academy Awards ceremony, many questioned the choice. Despite being one of the most popular stand-up comedians of the '80s, Murphy has rarely performed live over the last two decades. In this teaser clip on "Wtf," Rock and Maron discuss a time when Murphy was a prominent comedian, and how far his career has shifted from its stand-up roots.
"Whenever I'm around Eddie ... at some point, he asks me about [comedian] Fred Stoller, because

Slamdance Film Festival Announces 2011 Feature Film Competition
"All Is Not Lost" for Filmmakers in Park City and Commercially Year-Round
Los Angeles - December 7, 2010 - Slamdance today announced the 2011 Feature Competition slate for the 17th Annual Slamdance Film Festival taking place January 21-27, 2011 in Park City,
On the genre front Fernando Barreda Luna's found footage shocker Atrocious is the festival's one true horror entry while Simon Arthur's Silver Tongues also sounds like it could delve into dark thriller territory. Experimental effort The Beast Pageant is probably worth a look as well and I've been hearing growing buzz about inner city crime moc doc Snow On The Bluff as well.
On the real documentary side of things there are a couple music themed pieces - Road Dogs and Last Fast Ride - cranked up to 11. Stephan Wassman's Scrapper - the story of a group of men who collect scrap from a Us military bombing
The fest has earned a solid reputation for premiering films by first-time writers and directors working within the creative confines of limited budgets. Festival discoveries have included directors such as Christopher Nolan (Memento), Marc Forster (Monster’s Ball) and Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite).
The 17th annual fest will screen 10 narrative films and eight documentary features in competition from Jan. 21-27. Fourteen of the movies are world premieres. As part of this year’s festival theme — “All Is
The comedy about two mismatched guys forced to live together is scheduled to begin shooting in March.
"Fred and I have wanted to do a project together since our early stand-up days in New York City," Skrovan said. "This script captures the Fred I have known for so long: quirky, authentic, poignant and absolutely hysterical."
Stoller, repped by Amsel, Eisenstadt & Frazier Talent Agency, has appeared on "Everybody Loves Raymond," "Seinfeld" and "Friends" and in such features as "Dumb & Dumber," "Joe Dirt" and "Little Man." He also was a staff writer on "Seinfeld."
Skrovan, repped by Wma, is an Emmy winner who also wrote for "Seinfeld" and served as exec producer of "Raymond" and " 'Til Death.
Screened recently at the Nortel Palm Springs International Film Festival, "Wilbur Falls" is headlined by Danny Aiello and Sally Kirkland as small-town eccentrics whose revenge-minded daughter (Shanee Edwards) vamps her way into serious trouble just before graduating high school.
The most honored and busy among her schoolmates, Renata (Edwards) never forgets her public humiliation as a freshman, when an erotic drawing of hers is reproduced and displayed by treacherous friends. Reduced to a hysterical mess and needing the comfort of her father Phillip (Aiello), the affable but overprotective town sheriff, Renata evolves into a noir virgin with a superior attitude.
Renata's mother (Kirkland) is a New Age floozy whom Phillip adores, but they are only two influences on Renata. Her best friend Arne (Jeff Daurey) encourages her to exact long-overdue payback from brainless stud Jeffrey (Charlie Newmark). Luring him to her favorite frog pond, Renata pulls a nasty prank resulting in Jeffrey's unintended demise.
When the body disappears, Renata and Arne keep mum as locals believe Jeffrey has disappeared. Alas, Phillip is no longer sheriff, and his replacement, T-Bone David Anthony Marshall), arrogantly and menacingly lurks while attempting to solve the mystery.
Complications set in when the deceased's pregnant girlfriend Jodi (Cherilyn Hayres) turns to Renata for help getting an abortion. They travel to the city and visit Renata's wild older sister Katherine (Suzanne Cryer), who has goo-goo eyes for slick gangster Johnny Handsome (Fred Stoller). Jodi and Renata talk about sex, with the former's enthusiasm turning on the latter, and they fall into bed together.
After the brief lesbian interlude, and because of newsworthy abortion protesters, they cause a panic back home, and Renata defiantly claims to have been pregnant with Jeffrey's child. From unused condoms by the pond to the surprise of what happened to Jeffrey's body, the film lurches into overheated melodrama as T-Bone and the state police begin looking for a murderer.
The performances are rarely subtle or convincing, though Edwards, Aiello, Kirkland and Hayres work hard. Glantz's scenario is too scattershot, and the combination of serious and satirical elements is handled clumsily.
