Ben Affleck Knows His Way Around the 'Town'

29 December 2010 8:15 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Ben Affleck is big in Russia. How else to explain the fact that not once, but twice, during our interview, he is interrupted by fans from Moscow wanting to meet the Oscar winner? Affleck gamely poses for photos as one man explains, "I'm an actor. I don't speak English, sorry. But 'Gone Baby Gone'—very, very good." Affleck thanks him for the praise, and as the man leaves he adds, "Your brother very, very good actor. You, good director!"If anyone had doubts about that last statement after Affleck's directorial debut, "Gone Baby Gone," they disappeared with the September release of the taut, original thriller "The Town." Though he had been content to stay behind the camera with his first film, letting younger brother Casey take the lead and Amy Ryan win accolades, Affleck chose to put himself front and center for "The Town," which he also »

The IFC News Podcast Archive

28 December 2010 6:41 AM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

By far, the question we get most to our IFC News Podcast e-mail account and to our Twitter accounts is "How can I listen to older episodes of the podcasts?" Well good news podcasts fans; Christmas came a couple days late this year. While we're still working to make all our podcasts available on iTunes, we're pleased to present this complete archive page containing links to every single IFC News Podcast. That's right: every single one. Even the early ones that are embarrassingly terrible that you should never listen to. (Seriously. Don't do it.)

Still, if you've got 200+ hours at your disposal and you want to listen to the evolution of our podcast, now you can. And it has evolved. On our very first episode (a review of "Borat" from October 2006), we were barely capable of introducing ourselves (we also were pretty blatantly ripping off Filmspotting's review format).

Ben Affleck 'prefers ensemble films'

28 December 2010 4:16 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ben Affleck has revealed that he prefers to work on ensemble films rather than take on leading roles. In an interview with Reuters, the actor confessed that he finds smaller parts more rewarding as it gives him the opportunity to take chances and pursue different aspects of a character than he normally would be able to. "I've found that I've had the best time playing in ensembles or character parts where I could do something different. Good Will Hunting is a part like that. So is Boiler Room and Dogma and Hollywoodland," he explained. "I just feel you have more latitude to try things; it's much more satisfying. They mirror the things I did early on that I liked, like Dazed And Confused. You can do both; The (more) »

Red State Trailer – Mysterious Horror

24 December 2010 8:01 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Kevin Smith finished filming his mysterious movie Red State (in the works for ages) two months ago (according to his blog). To whet the whistle, Smith also released teaser posters and trailer. Smith’s exhilaration of the project, the outstanding cast (John Goodman, Melissa Leo, Kevin Pollak, and Anna Gunn) and provoking Baptist-horror theme lead to the question: Is this Kevin Smith’s come back? After the Dogma (a 1999 mumblecore with ideas) – the mixture of Smith’s messy preferences – comic books, drugs with a sly, expansive vision of the spiritual universe.

Due in theaters next year, the film focuses on a group of rebels who fight against extreme fundamentalism in Middle America and will make you yell before it makes you laugh. With the film being totally indie, Smith used the internet for an open approach to promote the film. He already announced that Red State would be in the »

Sundance '11: An Impressive Festival Trailer for Kevin Smith's 'Red State'

23 December 2010 11:48 AM, PST | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

It's no secret that I dislike Kevin Smith, quite a bit actually, which is shocking considering how much I championed Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (my brother and myself were the only people in the theater opening day for Mallrats). It's hard to ignore a director when he's so openly vicious towards the people who support him, and it's even more hilarious that he has the balls to suggest asking them to fund his movie. Anyways, the said movie is Red State, his political horror flick premiering January 23 at the Sundance Film Festival. While we've seen a handful of absolutely terrible one sheets, this morning Smith debuted the festival trailer that I believe looks pretty darn intense. My full disclosure of my feelings towards Smith should give some weight to my positive outlook on the film, thanks to a crafty trailer. »

'Red State' Teaser Trailer Proves This Ain't Your Father's Kevin Smith Movie

23 December 2010 6:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Trailers and Clips, Horror, Cinematical

Ever since 'Cop Out' opened to less than flattering reviews, filmmaker Kevin Smith has been waging a mini Twitter war with film critics. Smith claims he doesn't need critics or reviews for his films, particularly from people who get to see the movies for free and then write horrible things about them. He may be right. Smith has an army of devoted fans who will see anything his name is attached to. However, it's hard to deny that Smith's stance has created some hard feelings in the movie critic community. Luckily, it seems like those bad vibes could be set aside with one really good film from the guy - and if this teaser trailer is any indication, 'Red State' could very well be that movie.

A wild departure for the director, who's made his career with comedies like 'Clerks', »

‘Midgets vs. Mascots’ – Trailer and UK Quad Poster

23 December 2010 1:00 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment have announced the UK release of Midgets vs. Mascots, a hilarious shockumentary that has been described as Borat-meets-Jackass, which sees five little people and five mascots battle for one million dollars through 30 ridiculous competitions, including how many insults it takes to get punched in a bar, who can drink a gallon of fluid the fastest and who can wrestle a live alligator.

Gary Coleman, leading the “Littles” as himself, is a comedic freight train (or train wreck) as he gets into actual fist fights with mascots, coaches and even NBA star Scottie Pippen.

Starring Gary Coleman (Diff’rent Strokes) in his last ever role, Jason Mewes (Clerks, Dogma, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back), Jordan Prentice (Harold and Kumar, American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile, In Bruges), Rick Howland (Citizen Duane, Murdoch Mysteries), NBA star Scottie Pippen and adult cinema’s number one U.S star Ron Jeremy (The Boondock Saints, »

Kevin Smith defends 'Widening Gyre'

10 December 2010 12:25 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kevin Smith has discussed the controversy surrounding his Batman: The Widening Gyre title. The Dogma director drew the ire of some critics for rewriting a legendary scene from Frank Miller's Batman: Year One, revealing that the Dark Knight suffered a 'bladder spasm' when he confronted Gotham's corrupt elite. "By the time the Batman bladder thing made it to the page, it had been vetted by a bunch of people who had been doing this for years, and not one of them was like, 'Oh my God! We're going to shake things up with this!'" Smith told Cbr. "They were all like, 'Yeah, this is fine... and wait until you see when we bring Batman (more) »

More Photos from Kevin Smith's Horror Film 'Red State' Unveiled

3 December 2010 3:40 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Now we finally get a good look at the cast. Hot on the heels of yesterday's announcement that Kevin Smith's new horror film Red State would officially be premiering at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, a batch of new photos from the film recently hit the web. ShockTillYouDrop is where I first found them and you can check out three shots below, plus one more of an actress on their site. Not surprisingly, this actually looks like a solid indie horror about some teens who "encounter fundamentalism gone to the extreme in Middle America." In addition John Goodman, there's one photo of Michael Parks as crazy Pastor Abin Cooper. Red State is written and directed by filmmaker Kevin Smith, of great films like Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma and Zack and Miri Make a Porno. The cast in the film includes John Goodman, Kyle Gallner, Michael Angarano, Stephen Root, Kevin Pollak, Anna Gunn, »

Why Kevin Smith Hates Film Critics.

2 November 2010 8:51 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

I had something entirely different planned for this particular Twitch-o-Meter - a piece about former pro athletes turned actor - but given writer-director Kevin Smith's protracted Twitter-rant about film critics yesterday and the fact that he is just wrapping up another very lengthy rant on the same topic right now on live radio here in Toronto the plan has changed. Today I give you Kevin Smith and why he hates film critics.

And let me start by saying this. While I haven't liked all of Smith's movies I've always kind of loved his public persona, his 'one of the guys' approach to the public, and his genuine enthusiasm for all things geeky. Plus he's got a vocal soft spot for Canada, which is a definite plus in my books as well. All of which makes the anger behind his current ranting a bit of a perplexing surprise to me »

Creepy Poster for Kevin Smith's Red State: What's Under the Sheet?

1 November 2010 1:50 AM, PDT | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

Before the sun rises and Halloween officially comes to an end, here's a first look at the teaser poster for Kevin Smith's upcoming evangelical horror movie Red State. Judging from this ominous one-sheet, it looks like he isn't going for laughs this time. Smith is calling the film as a counterpoint to the Satanic exploitation movies of the 70s, describing it instead as a "Christ-sploitation" flick. Expect to see the six people that showed up to protest Dogma picketing theaters in 2011. »

Chris Rock makes Broadway debut in play with fittingly profane title

22 October 2010 1:00 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Sharp-tongued comedian Chris Rock will make his Broadway debut in a new play about love and fidelity with, you guessed it, an X-rated title. For the actor-comedian, who has a penchant for peppering his material with salty language, the match makes perfect sense.

Rock will join Bobby Cannavale, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Annabella Sciorra and Yul Vazquez in a production of Stephen Adly Guirgis' play The Mother ... With the Hat. (As promised, the title includes an expletive.)

The play follows Jackie (Cannavale), a parolee who is newly sober, and his girlfriend (Rodriguez) who is still battling drug and alcohol addiction. Rock will play Jackie's Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor.

Anna D. Shapiro, who won a Tony for directing August: Osage County, will helm the project.

This is the latest medium that the former SNL cast member is tackling since he's already conquered the stand-up circuit, television (including "Everybody Hates Chris") and of course, »

Clip joint: the boardroom

20 October 2010 9:07 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This week on Clip joint, we're adjusting our ties, downing a slug of whisky and laying out the best boardroom scenes in cinema

You're fired! There's nothing like a bracing encounter with Suralan and his fickle finger to remind us that boardroom action is a cross between theatre and gladiatorial combat. You don't even need "a head for business and a bod for sin" to appreciate the cinematic potential of the top table, a space that reeks of artificial leather, stale smoke and too much aftershave. Just a hint of financial impropriety, an uninvited guest or a simmering family feud can turn an executive suite into a cauldron of drama.

There's something about the boardroom's familiar combination of wood panelling, high-sheen table and suited drones that's designed to put women in their place. It's the modern equivalent of the saloon – a place where the big boys go to duke it »

Before 'The Town': Our 5 Favorite Ben Affleck Performances

17 September 2010 7:54 AM, PDT | AMC - Script to Screen | See recent AMC - Script to Screen news »

Here's an interesting fact for you... I've been a big fan of Ben Affleck's acting for a long long time.  Now I realize that isn't the most popular sentiment sometimes.  Even I have to agree that he's often appeared in films that have drawn a lot of criticism... but I also firmly maintain that if you actually look as his performances in most of the films he's appeared in, you'll recognize a man with a lot of talent.

Tonight Affleck's newest film "The Town" (Which is also his second film that he's directed) opens in AMC Theatres everywhere, and I thought this would be a good opportunity to share with you guys what I consider to be the 5 best performances (not best movies) Affleck has given unto us so far.

So take a look at my list and let me know what you think:

Why Ben Affleck Deserves More Respect

12 August 2010 3:23 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Ben Affleck started out like many actors do. He paid his first dues with forgotten fare no one remembers, and since it was the '80s, he even popped up in an Afterschool Special. But once the '90s hit, everything changed. (Well, they changed after his involvement in Danielle Steel's 'Daddy' in 1991.) He grabbed a role in School Ties, and then made himself the loathed butt-beater Fred O'Bannion in Dazed and Confused. Within a few years he joined the View Askewniverse for Mallrats, Chasing Amy, and Dogma, co-wrote and co-starred with long-time friend Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting, which earned him an Oscar, starred in the blockbuster Armageddon, and even found a loyal cult following with Phantoms (alongside one Peter O'Toole no less).

Once we entered the new millennium, it was easy to imagine a successful future career where drama still intermingled with comedy and silliness. »

Alanis Morissette Pregnant, The Hpoa Girl And Scott Pilgrim All Wet In Today's Twitter-Wood

Just Diablo Cody's pregnancy tweets have come to an end, so have Alanis Morissette's begun. The singer and actress proudly proclaimed her new status today, and seems to have picked up the baton where the Cody left it.

A few posts sneaked out of current entertainment projects as well over the last 24 hours, as Mark Webber showed off a Michael Cera shot that he saved from "Scott Pilgrim vs. The Wold," Robert Rodriguez completed "Machete," and Ice-t discussed Jennifer Love Hewitt's involvement in an upcoming episode of "Law and Order: Svu." Find out more about that, as well as what Stephen Colbert thinks about the girl in the job-quitting whiteboard prank after the jump.

Let’s Take A Trip With Kevin Smith To The “Red State”

10 August 2010 11:31 AM, PDT | Movie Cultists | See recent Movie Cultists news »

Over the last few years, Kevin Smith has become more of a personality and less of a celebrated filmmaker. There was a time, a brief time when Smith was a respected talent, but a few bad films later, Smith has become the guy that likes to talk a lot. Lately, there’s been a lot of talk about a Kevin Smith comeback.

Since 2006, Smith has spoken in slightly hush tones about Red State, a self described horror film. Over the years, Smith said that the film was inspired by Fred Phelps, the founder of Westboro Baptist Church while the director struggled to secure financing for the film. In 2009, long time Smith supporters, Harvey & Bob Weinstein passed on the project. However, Smith has managed to secure some financing and is expected to begin production on Red State this month.

Shock Till You Drop has recently uncovered the film’s log line: »

The Breakfast Club's Newest Member: Kevin Smith

4 August 2010 8:05 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

From the God We're Getting Old Department comes word that the Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced plans to celebrated the 25th anniversary of the epochal teen film "The Breakfast Club" on Monday September 20 with a special screening of the film at New York City's Paris Theater, followed by cast Q & A with Anthony Michael Hall, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy. The screening is part of a 2-day retrospective of John Hughes' work commemorating the one year anniversary of the beloved writer/director's death of a heart attack at the age of 59. To moderate the Q & A in his absence, the Film Society recruited filmmaker Kevin Smith.

Why Smith? The "Chasing Amy" and "Cop Out" director told The Los Angeles Times' Patrick Goldstein back in 2008 that Hughes was his generation's J.D Salinger and added that "If it weren't for him, I wouldn't be doing what I do. »
