1 hour ago

Into The Woods is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests.

Get your first look at the brand new poster from Disney.

This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.

Fantastic Fest – A Look at the Film, Parties, and Chaos that Await in Austin

15 September 2014 9:26 AM, PDT

The best way to describe how I approach Fantastic Fest is like summer camp. It happens once a year. You get back together with old friends. Yet in this case, this non-traditional camp is for fans of the most bizarre, violent, horrific, and Fantastic movies you could imagine. And even still, Fantastic Fest is so much more. This will be more third time attending Fantastic Fest and We Are Movie Geeks fourth time covering the crazy events that take place in Austin every September. For eight days I will be immersed in a world that is unlike any other film festival I have ever attended. What other festival is going to feature events like an opening night food fight, a karaoke party, a “nerd rap throwdown,” and the signature event at the festival – Fantastic Debates (which includes a verbal debate followed by a literal boxing match). These are just a »

Stephen King’S A Good Marriage Coming To Theaters & VOD October 3

15 September 2014 7:16 AM, PDT

Here’s a look at the trailer for Stephen King’S A Good Marriage.

When her husband (Anthony Lapaglia) of more than twenty years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson (Joan Allen) looks for batteries in the garage. Instead she discovers the stranger inside her husband. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends a good marriage.

The film, directed by Peter Askin and starring Joan Allen, Anthony Lapaglia Kristen Connolly, and Stephen Lang, is written by Stephen King and based off his short story “A Good Marriage” from the collection “Full Dark, No Stars”.

A bit of trivia on the movie - this is the first feature film screenplay Stephen King has adapted from one of his works in 25 years (last one: “Pet Sematary” in 1989), and only the 4th one overall (the other two feature films: “Cat’s Eye” in »

Get Dazed And Confused With Your High School Friends at the Tivoli Midnights This Weekend

14 September 2014 8:39 PM, PDT

“That’s what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age!”

Dazed And Confused plays this weekend (August 19th and 20th) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series.

I graduated from Kirkwood High School in 1979 and Dazed And Confused, which I saw at the Shady Oak Theater in Clayton 14 years later, is so spot-on it’s scary. Writer-Director Richard Linklater is one year older than me and his film debut was a nostalgic look back at the final day of school, when the soon-to-be-seniors get drunk and stoned waiting for their first year at the top of the food chain while the incoming freshmen get prepared for a year of getting picked on. A wide range of character drink, smoke pot and have fun talking about what life is about to offer them. I think »
