I had little idea of what to expect going into a viewing of Roman Coppola's A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, having only seen these suggestive posters. What I found was a surprisingly charming tale of a gifted man obsessed with beautiful possessions who is having trouble letting go of his latest love. It was the cast that really drew me in, sporting Charlie Sheen, Jason Schwartzman, Patricia Arquette, Katheryn Winnick, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Aubrey Plaza and Bill Murray, plus the written and directorial effort from the Oscar-nominated Roman Coppola. It's a fun little gem of a picture you probably missed in theaters, so hit the jump to check out my review of the film on Blu-ray to see if it's right for you. The Feature: At a runtime of 87 minutes, this is a quick little tale that mixes the absurd with the all too real »

While this is not technically a video, IndieWire has posted a YouTube video for the first single from Mary Elizabeth Winstead's upcoming album with producer Dan the Automator. Their group will go by the name Got a Girl and will follow in the footsteps of recent actress/musician collaborations such as She & Him featuring Zooey Deschanel, and Scarlett Johansson's album with Pete Yorn. While Scarlett and Zooey have a more indie feel to their music, Mary Elizabeth Winstead has a nice »

Endearing, invested, and exceptional in her recent roles in “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World,” James Ponsoldt’s “Smashed,” and “The Spectacular Now,” actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead has devoted some time on the side toward a musical outlet even as her star's been rising of late, and not without fine company. She and hip-hop producer Dan The Automator put together a band a year ago, Got A Girl, made a Twitter account just two days ago, and, just as quickly, have uploaded their first official track for the world to see. The duo have just released their single, “You And Me” online, and it certainly fits in with the inspirations that Winstead previously cited: “French 60’s pop, Jane Birkin… married with Dan’s sensibility, which is his beats and a little bit of that low-key hip-hop vibe.” The project was first announced about a year ago, and came into being when »

Sheen revealed in a promotional interview for the film that he was constantly amazed by the subtlety that Murray brings to his characters.
"He changed the way I looked at the world through his work," the Anger Management actor said, according to USA Today.
"His brain opens up in like six different hatches when they call 'action'... His rhythm is very bizarre.
"You don't know if he's forgotten his line. You're working with him and I've known him for an hour, you don't want him to quit because of you, but you're about to interrupt him seven times in the same scene."
A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III stars Sheen as a ladies' man whose life begins to collapse when he is dumped by his girlfriend. »

Cloud Atlas Tom Tykwer teams with Andy and Lana Wachowski to take on the epic task of adapting David Mitchell's sweeping novel that occurs in different times and places. The filmmakers enlist a crew of A-list actors, including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and Jim Broadbent, to play several versions (and races) of themselves. Their interweaving stories prove how the present can be affected deeply by the past, and despite its cast and how visually impressive it is, Cloud Atlas is a letdown. The DVD comes with the featurette, "A Film Like No Other." 68% A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III Charlie Sheen, Bill Murray, and Jason Schwartzman collaborate with writer/director Roman Coppola for this self-absorbed turkey of a film. Sheen is Charles Swan, a graphic designer whose life falls apart when his true love (Katheryn Winnick) breaks up with him. Set in a stylized Los Angeles, »

A fantastic cast of talented comic and character actors have assembled for A.C.O.D. (Adult Children of Divorce), but unfortunately that only makes its failures all the more disappointing. Adam Scott, who’s reliably great each week on TV’s Parks and Recreation, leads the cast as Carter, a man still caught between his warring parents years after their messy divorce. Alongside him are other similarly impressive sitcom talents; Amy Poehler (also from Parks & Rec) plays his father’s third and current spouse, Clark Duke (The Office) is his younger brother, and Jane Lynch (Glee) is the woman he believes was his therapist as a child. Then there’s Richard Jenkins and Catherine O’Hara as his estranged parents, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as his long-term girlfriend, and even Jessica Alba has a small role. Quite how the film manages to squander such talent is an achievement in itself.

This year, at the Grauman’s Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, Entertainment Weekly and the American Cinematheque teamed up for the inaugural CapeTown Film Festival, and hopefully this festival is here to stay. The past week, I’ve gone to a few of the screenings, joining the hordes of fanboys and girls cheering for their favorite picture(s).
The lineup has been stellar, featuring classics both old and new. On Tuesday, EW staged an early screening of Iron Man 3 before the U.S. premiere date of May 3rd, with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige in attendance. The next day was Edgar Wright Day, with Shaun Of The Dead and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World being shown, with Edgar Wright joined by stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Brandon Routh, Satya Bhabha, and Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley. On Thursday, John Carpenter’s The Thing terrified the sold out crowd with a 35 mm print, »

Cult filmmaker Edgar Wright did double-duty last night at Entertainment Weekly’s CapeTown Film Fest, showing off his zombie romcom Shaun of the Dead and his romantic rock-gamer odyssey Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. (Wright also sharedsome footage for his upcoming projects, including an eye-popping test reel for Ant-Man.) Before the Pilgrim screening, Wright brought some friends onstage: actors Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Brandon Routh, and Satya Bhabha, and Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley. Below, the coolest tidbits from their chat:

At the Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles during EW’s CapeTown Film Festival, writer and director Edgar Wright discussed the origin of the ice cream jokes in his “blood and ice cream” trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and the upcoming The World’s End) — amongst other things at back-to-back screenings of his films Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
Guests were also treated to exclusive footage of some of Wright’s upcoming movies, as well as a panel of Evil Exes, answering questions about the lines they most enjoy having quoted back at them. »

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
As a fellow A.C.O.D. (that’s an acronym for “Adult Child of Divorce”), the idea of a film trying to probe deep into diffuse effects of divorce is an enticing one. If director Stuart Zicherman doesn’t seem quite sure where to run with the ball, he at least delivers enough moments of honesty and hilarity to make the pic work.
Carter (Adam Scott) begins the tale by explaining that his parents Hugh and Melissa (Richard Jenkins and Catherine O’Hara) decided to get divorced on his 9th birthday in the middle of a blazing row. Ever since, Carter has kept them at an arm’s length, until his brother Trey (Clark Duke) declares that he is getting married to his new girlfriend.
With the prospect of his parents having to share the same floor space for a night, this causes Carter to re-examine how he »

According to a synopsis, her "unresolved feelings for Bill Clinton, a former boyfriend who now teaches law in Arkansas" will also be central to the story.
Ponsoldt's most recent film The Spectacular Now, which reunited him with Winstead, played at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
• Michael Fassbender (Shame) is attached to play the title role in a film update of Macbeth, William Shakespeare’s classic tragedy about a scheming nobleman intent on ruling Scotland. The play has been adapted for the big screen a number of times, including Orson Welles’ 1948 version in which he also played the character of Macbeth, and Roman Polanski’s 1971 version which starred Jon Finch. Justin Kurzel (The Snowtown Murders) will direct the Fassbender update which will reportedly use the original language. The part of Lady Macbeth has not been cast yet. [Screen Daily]

James Ponsoldt has a knack for getting the best out of Hollywood's most talented young actresses, and he could turn the trick again with "Rodham." According to TheWrap, Ponsoldt -- who directed "Smashed" and the upcoming "The Spectacular Now" -- has signed on to make a new biopic about Hillary Clinton.
First announced in January, "Rodham" focuses on Clinton's early career as a young attorney on the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate scandal. (The House Judiciary Committee was responsible for impeaching President Richard Nixon.) Young Il Kim wrote the script for "Rodham," and described the film to Politico as a "journey."
"[She was] torn between her personal desires and her professional ambition -- both literally pulled her thousands of miles apart, because Bill did not want to leave Arkansas, and she did not want to leave Washington, D.C.," Kim said about that time in Hillary's life.
As mentioned, Ponsoldt has »

Before last December, Young Il Kim was an economist and aspiring screenwriter. But with the release of the 2012 Black List, which compiles the most buzzed about unproduced screenplays circulating Hollywood, Kim became a writer to watch thanks to his Hillary Rodham Clinton biopic spec script Rodham. For many emerging talents, getting on to the Black List is a step toward getting your movie made. And it Kim's goal is getting closer to fruition as Rodham's producers have secured a noteworthy director for the project. The Wrap reveals James Ponsoldt has been attached to helm. The indie director first earned buzz in 2012 with the Mary Elizabeth Winstead-fronted drama Smashed. Then, at 2013's Sundance and SXSW he awed critics with his follow-up The Spectacular Now. (Notably, the latter's screenplay was on the Black List in 2009.) Between the buzz around Kim's script and the acclaim Ponsoldt has already earned, this seems »
The summer season has, over the past few decades, become synonymous with movie blockbuster season, as studios have found the months of May to August to contain the most profitable release dates for big-budget tentpole features, leading to the summer of recent years being filled with superhero films, big budget CGI features, and other tentpole movies that draw in huge crowds. This year is no different, as Marvel’s Iron Man 3 is set to kick off the summer movie season as May rolls around. However, this doesn’t mean non-blockbuster features don’t make their way to theatres during this time, and for those looking for smaller features, there are plenty of viewing options. Here are ten of our most anticipated non-blockbuster features set to be released over the next few months.
Author’s note: All films were selected based on their release date in American theatres. »

A grown man is still caught in the crossfire of his parents 15 year divorce. He discovers he was unknowingly part of a study on divorced children and is enlisted in a follow-up years later, which wreaks new havoc on his family.
Looking at the cast list for A.C.O.D led me to believe that we were in for a fun time. However the biggest problem with the movie is that I'm not sure whether it was trying to be a comedy movie. Because if it was, then it's failed miserably.
A.C.O.D stands for Adult Child of Divorce and aside from a terrible title, the movie just isn't funny enough. It »
