I honestly had very little to go one when I added A.J. Edwards’ The Better Angels to my predictions list and the fact that it has been included among the New Frontier offerings means that we’re in for something out of the ordinary, as the section has often challenged conventional form. Produced by Terrence Malick, and filmed in B&W, it features Jason Clarke, Diane Kruger, Brit Marling, Wes Bentley and a newbie actor taking on the role of a young Lincoln. Here is the entire listing of five (plus installation projects), which will include Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s on-going Hit Record project.
The Better Angels / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: A.J. Edwards) — Set in the harsh wilderness of Indiana, this is the story of Abraham Lincoln’s youth. It tells of the hardships that shaped him, the tragedy that marked him forever, and the two women who guided him to immortality. »

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. »

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 »

Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez teased another fictional business that will appear in his From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, with a photo of Big Kahuna Burger. The burger joint first appeared in Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, as well as the original From Dusk Till Dawn movie. In addition, we have a TV spot for the brand new El Rey Network that Robert Rodriguez created and will launch later this month.

The 10-episode serialized drama, created, directed and executive produced by Rodriguez (Sin City, Machete, Desperado) and based on the 1996 cult classic he created with Quentin Tarantino, will feature a principal cast including: D.J. Cotrona (Dear John, G.I. Joe Retaliation) as Seth Gecko, the role that famously launched the film career of George Clooney. Zane Holtz (Holes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower »
If the Sundance Film Festival has always been the place to discover tomorrow’s biggest stars in front of and behind the camera during the past 30 years, it seems to have become even more fruitful in recent years. From young filmmakers like Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station), Benh Zeitlin (Beasts of the Southern Wild), and Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter, Mud) to ready-to-launch superstars like Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone) and Dane DeHaan (Kill Your Darlings), Hollywood has quickly found its future in the snowy peaks of Park City. “One of the biggest changes in the last 30 years is how independent film »

Following his tease earlier this week of the original film's Benny's World of Liquor, Robert Rodriguez is back on Twitter today with another behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series." This time, it's another familiar fictional business: Big Kahuna Burger! Check out his photo below along with a newly released TV spot for the upcoming network. Big Kahuna Burger made its first big screen appearance in Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs and was later heavily featured in his Pulp Fiction and a number of other Tarantino-adjacent projects, including the original From Dusk Till Dawn . "That's one tasty burger," Rodriguez writes, quoting Samuel L. Jackson's Jules. "#FromDuskTillDawn only on the @Elreynetwork" »
We know that Robert Rodriguez is bringing one of his previous films to the small screen, with a TV adaptation of From Dusk Till Dawn currently filming, and now it's being reported by The New York Times (via ComicBookMovie) that The Weinstein Company is looking to branch out into the TV business and could be planning a Sin City series to follow the theatrical release of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For next year.
Apparently, Sin City is one of several movies that Bob Weinstein is looking to adapt for TV, with Rodriguez is said to be involved alongside with comic book creator and co-director Frank Miller. Meanwhile, in addition to the previously announced Scream pilot for MTV, Weinstein is also said to be working with director Frank Darabont on a 10-part series based upon Darabont's 2007 feature adaptation of the Stephen King tale The Mist.

Director Quentin Tarantino may have originally made a name for himself with modern crime thrillers like Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, but his two most recent films have taken a few leaves from the history books – then crossed out parts and added plenty of notes in the margin. Both Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained use real and very sensitive periods of history as a backdrop for classic tells of revenge and retribution, so many are wondering if Tarantino will continue that pattern in his next project.
Exactly what that next project is remains uncertain, though multiple different ideas have been mentioned. Tarantino usually puts out a new movie every two to five years, so there’s no doubt that he already has something in development; the only question is, what will it be?
A new answer has emerged ...

Anyone who’s followed Quentin Tarantino’s career knows that his ouevre consists of his own versions of the B-movie genres/themes he grew up loving. From blaxploitation, to Hong Kong martial arts epics, World War II, to spaghetti westerns, the director likes putting his unique stamp on a wide range of cinematic styles. The very secretive filmmaker often only announces the genre of his next film, and that starts the buzz on what tends to be a big movie to watch out for.
“I haven’t told anyone this publicly, but I will say the genre: It’s a western. I had so much fun doing Django, and I love westerns so much that after I taught myself how to make one, »

First, he made Django Unchained; then, he cited The Lone Ranger in his top films of 2013 so far. It’s clear Quentin Tarantino loves a good Western, so it’s no surprise to hear his next project will see him return to the oft-forgotten genre.
The acclaimed director of such classics as Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs and Inglourious Basterds recently appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to promote a graphic novel adaptation of Django, where he revealed the genre of his next project – and also confirmed that it won’t be a sequel to the Jamie Foxx-starring Django, released earlier this year in the UK.
Tarantino professed his love for the genre to Leno:
‘I love westerns so much, after I taught myself to make one, it’s like ‘Now let me make another one, now I know what I’m doing.”

For a lot of hardened cinephiles, waiting for Quentin Tarantino to open up about his next film is somewhat comparable to the act of waiting for Christmas. I mean, maybe it’s not up there with Christmas, but… well, actually, it kind of is. The Tennessee-born director, renowned for his violent, sweary movies and his tendency to talk a lot, is without a doubt one of the most popular directors working today, his films beloved by many. Be it down to their density, his iconic, always memorable characters, or the fact that you never know what you’re getting, it isn’t hyperbolic to say that the man has consistently delivered great movie after great movie ever since 1992′s Reservoir Dogs.
And guess what? Tarantino just announced his next movie, people! We’re serious. Well, sort of serious. He announced the genre of his next movie, and the revelation might »
- Sam Hill
In an interview with Jay Leno on the Tonight Show, the exploitation loving director confirmed that he wants to stay within the same genre as Django, because he got so much out of it.
“I can’t say that much about it, but I will say one thing. I haven’t told anyone about this publicly, but I will say the genre. It’s a western. It’s not a Django sequel, but it’s another Western. I had so much fun doing Django and I love westerns so much, that after I taught myself how to make one, it’s like ‘Ok, now let me make another one now that I know what I’m doing.’”
So, no return for the eponymous hero of Tarantino’s last project »

Director announces next project will be a western, but not a sequel to Oscar-winning Django Unchained
• Quiz: How much do you know about Quentin Tarantino?
Quentin Tarantino has announced to Us talk show host Jay Leno that his next project will be a western. It follows his film Django Unchained in 2012, a western starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz which won Tarantino an Oscar for his screenplay – but Tarantino says that the new project is not connected.
"I can't talk that much about it, but I will say one thing," Tarantino told Leno. "I haven't told anyone about this publicly, but I will say the genre. It's a western. It's not a Django sequel, but it's another Western. I had so much fun doing Django and I love westerns so much, that after I taught myself how to make one, it's like 'Ok, now let me make another »

The Class of 92 is a splendid film about six Manchester United friends living their (and our) dreams
Who knew? It is difficult to imagine a feature-length film charting the rise of six Manchester United footballers from Fa Youth Cup to Champions League winners being so laugh-out-loud funny. The Class of 92 is no comedy but it expertly and easily aces the six-guffaw test by which such movies stand or fall in the world of the Observer film critic, Mark Kermode.
Football, friendship and fame are the prevailing themes of a splendid documentary made by the film-making brothers Gabe and Ben Turner, but there is no shortage of funny either. Reunited for just one day last summer, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Phil and Gary Neville, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes clearly revelled in recalling their seven-year ascent through the United ranks, from put-upon first year apprentices to treble-winning kings of Europe. »

Not long after A Good Day to Die Hard made more money than most can imagine, word spread that a Mr. Ben Trebilcook was working on a script for a sixth and final Die Hard for one of A Good Day‘s producers. Since Die Hard is basically the greatest movie ever and there didn’t seem to be much official out there with Mr. Trebilcook and his script, I decided to reach out to the man and see what was what (and admittedly try and get some Easter eggs. After all, I am little more than a desperate fan).
Trebilcook’s twitter suggests that the film has been moving forward and, considering the strange history of the scripts to Die Hard movies, Trebilcook’s script to screen story would be rather conventional.
Mr. Trebilcook had some surprising things to say about his script as well »

It claimed its cult-like status before it was released in theaters, and was the talk of the fest much like Reservoir Dogs and Clerks were before them. Found footage The Blair Witch Project not only redefined the genre, but it quickly became part of cinematic and festival history. And speaking of legends, Eduardo Sanchez decided to follow a mythic one for his latest endeavor. Following the trails of sasquatch (and influenced by 1972′s The Legend of Boggy Creek), this has zero to do with the touring monster truck of the same name. The filmmaker was recently back at the fest for his contribution to S-vhs (V/H/S 2) and recent promo art from the Afm means the shot in April Exists looks ready to go.
Gist: Scripted by Jamie Nash, this is about a group of friends who venture into the remote Texas woods for a party weekend find themselves stalked by Bigfoot. »

Kids. Such as Sex, Lies, and Videotape or Reservoir Dogs before it, and such as Winter’s Bone, Blue Valentine and Fruitvale Station after it, Larry Clark & Harmony Korine’s seminal film is forever connected in “spirit” to the lieu where it received its secret midnight premiere screening in 1995. The Sundance Film Festival might be known as the birthplace of U.S indie filmmaking innovation, avant-gardism, a larger definition of the low budgeted film response to Hollywood in not only narrative but in the non-fiction form, but it is a festival made strong by its renewal and familiarity. That close acquaintanceness exists in Kids‘ starlets Rosario Dawson and Chloë Sevigny filmography/career path trajectory and connection to Park City (both have several indie films slated for ’14 – of which I’ve included in our predictions list) and it is that “familiarity” that is visibly noticeable in how I map out my annual predictions list. »
