Bad Milo! heading to DVD in the UK in October

16 September 2014 2:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following a successful showing at this year’s FrightFest (read our review here), Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced that Bad Milo! will be released on DVD here in the UK on 20th October 2014.

Here’s the press release:

For over a century, Hollywood has been scaring audiences around the world with its terrifying monsters…but none as terrifyingly funny as Bad Milo!, available on DVD on 20th October from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Ken Marino (We’re the Millers, Wanderlust) and Gillian Jacobs (TV’s “Community,” The Incredible Burt Wonderstone) star in this shockingly original horror comedy about a man named Duncan (Marino) who discovers he has an actual pint-sized demon living inside him. In order to keep it from popping out and murdering anyone who angers him – including his sweet but pressuring wife (Jacobs) – Duncan must learn to embrace his inner demon and control its killer appetite!

'Tusk' (2014) Movie Review

15 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Like it or not, Kevin Smith has carved out his own niche in the world of cinema and I respect his decision to utilize his dedicated fanbase to make the movies he wants to make, rather than churning out studio garbage such as his 2010 feature, Cop Out. Tusk is his second venture into this latest stage in his career and, having not yet seen Red State, my first experience with something of a "new" Smith, a filmmaker that hasn't abandoned his comedic origins, but instead twisted his brand of comedy into the horror genre. The result is a movie that I didn't particularly enjoy or find funny, but still have to give credit where due, as I'd rather see more filmmakers making what they want to make and telling the stories they want to tell, instead of whatever second rate studio script lands on their desk. Tusk centers on Wallace »

12 September 2014 9:54 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fargo” producer John Cameron has closed an overall deal with FX Productions and has signed on as a partner with “Fargo” creator Noah Hawley’s production company 26 Keys.

Nick Grad and Eric Schrier, presidents of original programming at FX Networks and FX Productions, announced the agreement, which covers all projects developed for television, cable and broadcast.

John Cameron was instrumental in the success of ‘Fargo’ and we look forward to continuing our relationship with him on new projects through Fxp and also on the next installment of ‘Fargo,’” said Grad.

Based on the Coen brothers film, “Fargo” was renewed for a second 10-part installment in July after a successful first run that nabbed 3 Emmys, including outstanding miniseries.

“Fxp is an organization fervently committed to creating exceptional television, and I am thrilled to move forward into the future with them,” said Cameron.  “Noah, of course, is a singular storyteller and astonishing talent. »

Joaquin Phoenix Sparks Up In First Snippets Of Inherent Vice Footage

10 September 2014 1:51 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Tiff finally bowing out after an incredible run, the next big festival slated to saturate the filmic blogsphere with news, rumours, gossip (amidst the occasional kernel of truth) is the 52nd New York Film Festival. The roster for the fall fest is packing a wallop so far, with a ton of anticipated movies set to debut. David Fincher’s Gone Girl and the Michael Keaton comeback vehicle, Birdman, are among the impressive line-up. Along with Paul Thomas Anderson’s long awaited Inherent Vice.

Granted, the marketing machine for the adaptation hasn’t quite fired up fully. Hopefully we’ll get a sneak at a full-length trailer very, very soon. Until then, the New York Film Festival’s trailer has landed. If you squint just right, and hit pause with the speed of a ninja, you’ll see a couple of shots from the zany tale.

Curio: Movies By Color

8 September 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Alexa here with your weekly fix of film art. I've always thought color impacts the mood of a film greatly: the pops of red in Pulp Fiction, the moody blue noir of Blade Runner, the dominant earth tones in The Big Lebowski. Along these lines, there has been a mini-trend lately of designers abstracting films according to their color palettes. My favorite is by designer Charlie Clark.  Clark's project, titled "The Colors of Motion," takes the average hue from each frame of a film and then presents the frames together as horizontal stripes or square tiles. Distilled down to their palettes, The Matrix becomes a sea of green and black, and Frozen becomes a patchwork of dark blues and browns.

See Jeff Bridges Channel His 'Big Lebowski' Character for a White Russian Commercial

5 September 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Just as peanut butter isn’t the same without jelly, Jeff Bridges’ the Dude from The Big Lebowski isn’t the same without a White Russian. A new short film from the beverage gurus at Kahlúa features the actor telling a "twisted tale" of an unexpected encounter between two men from different worlds. The scene alternates between the Mexican desert in the 1970s and a jazz bar—where Bridges shares a story about a buried briefcase. Whoever the marketing geniuses were behind this ad campaign deserve awards galore. Matching Bridges with his character’s favorite drink is too cool, and it’s great to see the old Lebowski twinkle is still in his eyes. Let your Lebowski freak flag fly by watching this short, then imagine Bridges endorsing...

Steven Sotloff Remembered by Family and Friends

5 September 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Steven Sotloff had always been interested in exploring the world. Intelligent and inquisitive, he had an easygoing disposition and a sharp sense of humor. While his death at the hands of Isis militants has horrified the nation, the loss has been devastating to those who knew the 31-year-old journalist. His parents, Arthur and Shirley, and sister Lauren are privately grieving, as are friends who remember him fondly as "someone you'd want in your circle." A public memorial service for Sotloff was held Friday afternoon in his hometown of Pinecrest, Florida. "Steve was equally torn between two poles," his family said »

Video of the Day: Jeff Bridges Channels ‘The Dude’ in Short Film ‘White Russian’

3 September 2014 6:53 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Jeff Bridges is giving fans of The Big Lebowski something to toast a drink to. Here, he stars in a punchy short film from the Mexican liquor brand Kahlúa, honouring The Dude’s favourite cocktail – the White Russian. The new micro-movie, titled The White Russian features Bridges narrating a tale wherein a younger version of himself finds a buried briefcase in the Mexican desert, along with a band of villains in hot pursuit. Directed by Ivan Zacharias, The White Russian is a clever advertisement to get you to buy the tasty liqueur, which of course, happens to be one of the main ingredients in a White Russian. I guess next, Bridges will be asked to star in ads for Vodka, bowling shoes and exotic rugs. Watch the short below. Enjoy!

Jeff Bridges Goes Full Lebowski In The White Russian

3 September 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As a card-carrying member of the Little Lebowski Urban Achievers, I.m in whenever there.s an event that mixes The Dude and White Russians. This is why I.m totally geeking out over this new short film featuring Jeff Bridges telling a twisted tale while lounging in a smoky jazz bar nursing his favorite beverage. The new micro-movie, titled The White Russian, was commissioned by the folks at Kahlúa and features Bridges recounting a tale wherein a younger version of himself finds a buried briefcase in the Mexican desert. Soon, he.s run afoul of some local gangsters, who are hot on his tail, only to be saved by a Russian cosmonaut who falls from the sky at the most opportune of moments. Bridges, looking very Dude, turns up in the second half . and if you love The Big Lebowski even half as much as I do, that »

Cool Videos: Jeff Bridges channels The Dude in the short The White Russian

3 September 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The Big Lebowski is one of my favorite movies. Yeah, I know almost everyone who considers themselves a movie fan likely says that, but I remember seeing it in the theater with only a handful of other folks who had no idea what they were in for. I loved every moment of the batshit crazy Coen brand of comedy and a film noir unlike any other. While we may never get a true sequel to The Big Lebowski, this new short film definitely uses it for inspiration. Produced by Kahlua, the short stars »

See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

2 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »

Monsters Attack In ‘Seventh Son’ Trailer & Poster

28 August 2014 11:20 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s been a bumpy road for Legendary’s Seventh Son. Originally planned for release this autumn, the film has been pushed back to February next year after Warner Bros. and Legendary parted ways. Now Universal are set to distribute and so we can have a look at the latest poster and trailer. Seventh Son tells the story of the last two knights whom must protect the world from the forces of darkness. There’s plenty of monster goodness, which is always a plus as far as I’m concerned, but despite a The Big Lebowski reunion of Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges, the film looks as though it is going to struggle to find an audience. Hopefully the monster fights are as fun as they have the potential to be. Less fun is the awful poster, which is the same kind of Photoshopped mess used by the likes of The Asylum, »

Bill Hader’s List of 200 Essential Comedies Everyone Should See

28 August 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Bill Hader has come a long way since his stint on Saturday Night Live, creating many popular characters and impersonations such as Stefon, Vincent Price and CNN’s Jack Cafferty. He is one of the highlights in such films as Adventureland, Knocked Up, Superbad and Pineapple Express, and so it is easy to see why author Mike Sacks interviewed him for his new book Poking A Dead Frog. In it, Hader talks about his career and he also lists 200 essential movies every comedy writer should see. Xo Jane recently published the list for those of us who haven’t had a chance to read the book yet. There are a ton of great recommendations and plenty I haven’t yet seen, but sadly my favourite comedy of all time isn’t mentioned. That would be Some Like It Hot. Still, it really is a great list with a mix of old and new. »

Here There Be Ligers: An Oral History of 'Napoleon Dynamite'

28 August 2014 11:24 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

What a difference a year makes. In 2003, Jared Hess, Jerusha Hess, and Jon Heder — students at Brigham Young University's film school — were just another trio of independent filmmakers working the festival circuit in Park City. Their short film "Peluca," about a fanny pack-wearing teen named Seth, was selected to screen at the Slamdance Film Festival. If the protagonist sounds slightly familiar, it's because he was the prototype for the titular geek hero of Napoleon Dynamite, the micro-budget indie that would become the toast of that city's other film fest — Sundance »

Watch: New Trailer For The Long-Delayed ‘Seventh Son’ Starring Ben Barnes, Jeff Bridges & Julianne Moore

28 August 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Jeff Bridges was lured into the Ya genre this year, but “The Big Lebowski” actor hasn’t had much luck so far. He played a big supporting role in summer’s Ya film “The Giver,” but the movie was mostly met with indifference from audiences. Up next for Bridges is the adaptation of the Ya fantasy sci-fi series "The Spook's Apprentice,” retitled “Seventh Son” for the screen. Perhaps his fortunes will change, but the project is already looking like the unwanted stepchild of the Ya movie genre. It's changed studios, going from Legendary to Universal when the shingle parted ways with Warner Bros, and it’s been delayed for about two years now. A trailer for the film appeared well over a year ago, but now that it’s in the hands of Uni, a new, very different trailer has arrived. The story centers around Tom Ward (Ben Barnes), a »

Photos: Lebowski Fest Returns to New York to Celebrate The Coen Brothers' Cult Classic Film

24 August 2014 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

The Big Lebowski, a Raymond Chandler-esque comedy crime caper from Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, pivots around a case of mistaken identity complicated by extortion, double-crosses, deception, embezzlement, sex, pot, and gallons of White Russians -- made with fresh cream, please. In 1991, unemployed '60s refugee Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski (Jeff Bridges) grooves into his laid-back Los Angeles lifestyle. One of the laziest men in La, he enjoys hanging with his bowling buddies, pompous security-store owner Walter Sobchak (John Goodman) and mild-mannered ex-surfer Donny (Steve Buscemi). However, the Dude's life takes an alternate route the afternoon two goons break into his threadbare Venice, California, bungalow, rough him up, and urinate on his living room rug. Why? Because Jackie Treehorn (Ben »
