The Sundance Institute has released the movie line-up for their Spotlight, Midnight and Sundance Kids selections for The Sundance Film Festival 2014. The Midnight selection has always been my favorite because its always packed with really crazy, fun, and messed up films. It looks like another great collection of films this next year! They include films such as Cooties with Elijah Wood, Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead and more. Sundance Kids is a new addition this year which, if you couldn't tell, is meant for younger audiences.
The Festival takes place January 16-26 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Sundance, Utah, and we will be there to cover as many of the films as humanly possible. Director of Programming, Trevor Groth, had this to say in a statement.
“The films in the sections announced today round out our 2014 Sundance Film Festival program and further reflect the depth and »

Ein film von Jim Jarmusch. Jarmusch fans are going to flip over these. Two new character posters for Jim Jarmusch's vampire romantic drama Only Lovers Left Alive have been posted online via IMPAwards, one featuring Tim Hiddleston the other his lover Tilda Swinton. The font is perfectly Gothic and fits this quirky indie better than anyone even knows, unless they've already seen this (then they know why they're so perfect!). They're also hilariously emo, with Hilddleston holding a gun to his chest (don't try this at home, please!) and Swinton lying around hopelessly surrounded by books. The ad agency nailed it with these two. Here's the two German character posters for Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, found on IMPAwards: Only Lovers Left Alive, written & directed by Jim Jarmusch (Dead Man, Broken Flowers, Limits of Control) takes place against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier and »

I’m a huge fan of David Magee’s Life Of Pi big-screen adaption (and I loved the book) so this might well perk some interest towards the film Narnia series for me as well, as he’s now set to take on the task of bringing The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Silver Chair to audiences.
Growing up, I read a lot of C.S. Lewis but wasn’t that excited about the first three, yes three, film versions that were released. They seemed like a solid fantasy affair but never really hit the heights or enjoyment of the massive world of Narnia and all that goes with it. This adaption would be from the sixth book in the series and even though it’s very early days on the production, having Magee there is a good choice to bring a bit of life back to a story that deserves it. »

International artwork has come in for three films that are all on our radar so we made one big smorgasbord out of them for you. Check out Devil's Due in Spanish; I, Frankenstein in Italian; and eine doppelte dosis of Only Lovers Left Alive in German.
20th Century Fox's Devil’s Due, featuring Allison Miller ("Terra Nova") and Zach Gilford ("Friday Night Lights") , opens in theaters everywhere January 17, 2014. Penned by Lindsay Devlin, it's directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Radio Silence).
After a mysterious, lost night on their honeymoon, a newlywed couple find themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy. While recording everything for posterity, the husband begins to notice odd behavior in his wife that they initially write off to nerves, but as the months pass, it becomes evident that the dark changes to her body and mind have a much more sinister origin.

A new clip (sadly only in German) and three new international posters have surfaced for cult indie director Jim Jarmusch’s romantic gothic chiller Only Lovers Left Alive. Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton lead the bloodthirsty love story as vampires Adam and Eve, who’ve been together for centuries but find a their immortal lifestyle, currently masquerading as depressed underground rock musicians, tested by the arrival of one of their devious siblings.
Only Lovers Left Alive is Jarmusch’s first effort since 2005s underrated black comedy Broken Flowers. The impressive supporting cast includes Jeffrey Wright, Anton Yelchin, John Hurt and Mia Wasikowska. It’s released in the UK on the 21st February 2014.

See Tilda Swinton in the third poster for Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, also starring Tom Hiddleston, John Hurt and Mia Wasikowska. Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them? »
A brand spanking new clip from Jim Jarmusch’s toothy tale of lust and vampires, Only Lovers Left Alive, is here just in time for the film's premiere at next year's Sundance Film Festival so crank it up and dance along!
Only Lovers Left Alive stars Tilda Swinton as Eve, a grungy but erudite vampire who's married to a forlorn vampire musician, Adam, played by Tom Hiddleston. Several-hundred-year-old Adam (of Biblical fame) has been living quite happily ever since being expelled from the Garden of Eden--that is, until the 21st century came along with its excesses and greed and pushed him into a full-flung existential crisis. He cracks and orders a wooden bullet to kill himself.
Adam and Eve are not about blood-sucking and murder but are refined lovers of literature, science, music, and learning in general. When Eve's estranged sister (Mia Wasikowska) "drinks" Ian, a friend, to death, Eve tells her off, »

Although not part of the “Midnight” selection, Only Lovers Left Alive is a new vampire movie that stars Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin and Jeffrey Wright, and it will be playing at Sundance next month. Here’s a brand new clip for you to check out:
Previously: “Sony Pictures Classics announced today that they have acquired all North American rights to Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive, which will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival tomorrow in the In Competition section. The film was produced by Jeremy Thomas of Recorded Picture Company and Reinhard Brundig of Pandora Film. Christos Konstantakopoulos of Fairilo House served as executive producer.

Not too long ago, we posted a review of the new Jim Jarmusch movie Only Lovers Left Alive, in which Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton play emaciated vampire lovers. The review written by our very own Tom Stoup wasn’t favourable to the film stating, “Jim Jarmusch does not intend to analyze questions but simply to put ideas out there, and as a result, his product ultimately feels lackadaisical and aimless”. It’s hard to believe the director of Down By Law, Ghost Dog and Dead Man (to name a few), could so greatly disappoint, especially while working with such an incredible cast. I still haven’t seen Only Lovers Left Alive, but despite Tom’s negative review, this new clip featuring Hiddleston and Swinton dancing to Denise La Salle’s “Trapped By A Thing Called Love,” has me very excited. Watch the clip below.

You may have noticed Uncle Creepy posting lots of imagery from films playing at Sundance 2014 earlier today, and now we have the full announcement of which horror projects are included in the Spotlight and Park City at Midnight lineups.
As mentioned when posting the first wave of films screening this year, it's sometimes difficult to tell exactly what's horror-related, so below are our best guesses of what we'll be covering from this latest batch or are films that sound just fringey enough that we'll be keeping our eyes on them:
Blue Ruin / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: Jeremy Saulnier) — A mysterious outsider’s quiet life turns upside down when he returns to his childhood home to carry out an act of vengeance. Proving to be an amateur assassin, he winds up in a brutal fight to protect his estranged family. Cast: Macon Blair, Amy Hargreaves, Sidné Anderson, Devin Ratray, »

Sundance’s Spotlight section works as a sampling of quality items that dug their knees in the sand of the Croisette, or hit the asphalt payment in Toronto. It’s an acknowledgment of U.S film distributors (in this case: Radius-twc, Magnolia, Music Box Films, A24, Sony Pictures Classics, Strand Releasing) who’ve all contributed to my favorite disease – one that is called cinephilia. It’s also a look into 2014 – which is when they’ll be unveiled theatrically. And finally, it’s a way in which to receive the extended Sundance family once again such as Richard Ayoade (preemed his debut feautre here – Submarine) and Jeremy Saulnier (was at the fest as a cinematographer for Matthew Porterfield’s I Used to Be Darker). Here are the eight selections:

When Sundance announced the films in competition for the 2014 festival yesterday, its organizers noted that they were impressed by the caliber of cinematic artistry — mostly due to technology — that freed up filmmakers to experiment with different genres. No category of the festival is more rooted in genre than Park City at Midnight, the late-night section that specializes in horror and the supernatural, and this year’s slate has several potential breakouts. “The Midnight lineup came together in a way that is about the strongest group we’ve ever had, top to bottom,” says Trevor Groth, Sundance’s director of programming. »

“The Guest,” the latest effort from horror helmer Adam Wingard; “Killers,” a Web-based serial-killer thriller from Indonesia’s Mo Brothers; and “What We Do in the Shadows,” a mock-doc collaboration between New Zealand-based directors Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement (of Flight of the Conchords) are among the eight oddball titles set to make their world premieres in Park City at Midnight at the 30th annual Sundance Film Festival.
Having noted that the dramatic competition lineups (unveiled Wednesday) contained a number of films with comedic and horror-thriller elements, festival director John Cooper pointed out that the distinctions between competitive and non-competitive titles were blurring more than ever.
“We considered all the Midnight titles for competition at one point,” he said. “It’s very fluid.”

Sundance has unveiled the films selected to screen in the 2014 Sundance Film Festival out-of-competition sections Spotlight, Park City at Midnight, New Frontier and new ‘Sundance Kids’ section of films for younger audiences. The fest takes place January 16-26 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah. Spotlight brings back movies that the Sundance programmers have admired at other festivals around the world. It's a chance to catch up on lauded films that have been missed or still lack distribution. Of this group, we recommend Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive," starring the incomparable Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston as timeless vampire lovers--and a surprisingly nasty Mia Wasikowska--as well as Ritesh Batra's four-hankie love story "The Lunchbox," an independent film starring the great Irrfan Khan that should have been India's official Oscar entry.The Park City at Midnight selection is often the primary target for acquisitions executives. »

Sundance Institute executives announced on December 5 that the festival will feature new work from artist Doug Aitken as well as Klip Collective’s external projections on the Egyptian Theatre.
An expanded New Frontier will showcase installations, performance, transmedia and panel discussion section. Most of the installations will be housed at a new, 5,000-square-foot location at the Gateway in Park City adjacent to Main Street.
“As human and machine, biological and media experiences blur and hybridise, the distinctions between them are also becoming irrelevant,” said curator of the exhibition and Sundance Film Festival senior programmer Shari Frilot.
“The digital and the organic integrally constitute a new primordial pool. What does creativity and storytelling look like if we revel in this new way of being?”
“This year’s expanded New Frontier allows artists to continue pushing the boundaries in telling their stories,” said Sundance »

Tommy Wirkola’s Dead Snow sequel, Adam Wingard’s The Guest and Xyz Films’ Killers from The Mo Brothers are among the Park City At Midnight line-up as festival heads also unveiled Spotlight selections and the inaugural Sundance Kids section on December 5.
The Sundance Kids strand is programmed in cooperation with Utah children and youth festival Tumbleweeds, and will premiere Ernest And Celestine starring Forest Whitaker and Lauren Bacall and Zip & Zap And The Marble Gang with Javier Gutiérrez.
“The films in the sections announced today round out our 2014 Sundance Film Festival programme and further reflect the depth and diversity of modern independent film-making that will satisfy everyone from festival fledglings to fanatics,” said director of programming Trevor Groth.
The Sundance Film Festival is set to run from January 16-26 2014 in Utah. Organisers will showcase 117 feature selections, of which 96 are world premieres, representing 37 countries and 53 first-time film-makers, including 34 in competition.

While David Bowie’s “The Next Day” hasn’t delivered any traditional hits, he has kept his first studio album in 10 years in the spotlight since its release in March by steadily releasing videos from the project, Each mini-movie has had its own theme and they’ve ranged from the intriguing narrative of “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)” with Tilda Swinton or much more low key, like the $12.99 video for “Love is Lost.” They've all been artsy, but accessible. Late last night he released the clip for “I’d Rather Be High (Venetian Mix).” The song, one of the jauntier musical tracks from »
Only Jim Jarmusch could dive into the vampire genre and instead of focusing on the fangs and blood, use it to explore existential ennui, culture, humanity and, of course, music. "Only Lovers Left Alive" finds the writer/director at his wittiest in years, delivering one of his best movies, period. And a big part of that success is down to his two leads. Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton are front and center and are the heart and soul of "Only Lovers Left Alive" as two ancient vampires in a modern world. Adam has grown weary of his existence on Earth, failing to find anything to justify going on, while Eve continues to find beauty in a bleak world. Their relationship is wonderfully written stuff and the two actors are absolutely magnetic together, as evidenced in this clip where they dance to Denise La Salle's "Trapped By A Thing Called Love. »
