Watch Trailer For Doc 'Free Throw' (A Different Side To Compton); National Release In November

11 October 2012 12:36 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

From filmmaker Court Crandall comes the inspirational feature documentary, Free Throw, for which we've been provided the trailer, poster and a few photos for, ahead of its upcoming release. Claiming to show a different side to the people of Compton, the synopsis for Free Throw reads: We live in a world full of lines that divide us -- Racial. Financial. Religious. But what if there was one line that brought us all together? A line we didn't just stand on, but for. A line painted on the ground that showed us all just how high we can reach. Free Throw follows eight students at Compton High School as they participate in a free throw shooting contest for $40,000 college »

Humpday Trailer Dump: New Trailers for "Hitchcock", "Lincoln", & Adele's "Skyfall" Theme

10 October 2012 4:34 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

We have a number of huge biopics coming up, with two of the most promising being Steven Spielberg's Lincoln and Sacha Gervasi's Hitchcock, both of which feature some incredible character work by Daniel Day-Lewis (as Abraham Lincoln) and Anthony Hopkins (as Alfred Hitchcock), as well as incredible casts including Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, Toni Collette, Danny Huston, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tommy Lee Jones, and Sally Field.

While these two films are impressive in so many ways (and their trailers below promise great things), that's not to overshadow other flicks like the next chapter in the Bruce Willis Die Hard saga A Good Day to Die Hard, the grindhouse-style trailer for The Canyon (with Lindsay Lohan), the trailer for Sam Mendes's Skyfall featuring the theme by Adele, Court Crandall's basketball documentary Free Throw or the Blu-ray release of the Tarantino Xx: 8-Film Collection (with Kill Bill, Jackie Brown, »

The 2012 Seattle Film Festival Line-Up is the Best I've Seen in Years

27 April 2012 12:07 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I can't remember a time I went to the Seattle International Film Festival (Siff) press launch and looked over the list of films and saw so many I was interested in seeing. The claim to fame for over the years is to call it the largest and most-highly attended festival in the United States. This is a fact I've often taken issue with as I don't equate quantity with quality. Granted, there has been a large number of quality features to play the fest over the years, including Golden Space Needle (Best Film) winners such as Kiss of the Spider Woman (1985), My Life as a Dog (1987), Trainspotting (1996), Run Lola Run (1999), Whale Rider (2003) and even recent Best Director winner, Michel Hazanavicius's Oss 117: Nest of Spies in 2006. That said, looking over this year's crop of films I see a lot of films I will be doing my absolute best to see. »

'The Pitch': AMC's reality take on 'Mad Men'

7 April 2012 1:15 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Advertising gets a new spotlight in April with the premiere of the AMC reality series, "The Pitch," an inside look at how creative agencies compete to prove their ideas are the best. Though the real-life experience may not be as glitzy glam as the world of "Mad Men," the  series provides a fascinating take on the difficulties of creative gimmicking, the struggle to both stumble upon a golden thought, and convince someone else of its worth. 

"It [advertising] is a certain industry where you survive by pitching, that's the prerequisite to win business," longtime ad executive Court Crandall explains to Zap2It.

Crandall is currently the Executive Creative Director at Wdcw, one of two agencies featured in the show's premiere.

"My dad was in advertising in that ["Mad Men"] era so I certainly watched the old-fashioned drinking. I think it's depicted as a little more glamorous than it was, but most of it's pretty accurate. »
