First Look trailer: Mira Sorvino's direct-to-dvd backwoods chiller 'The Presence'

27 July 2011 1:33 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

According to IMDb, Mira Sorvino has been quite busy lately. Although, to be honest, we sort of tuned out around the time she costarred with Val Kilmer’s blind masseuse in 1999′s At First Sight. So we were pleased to see the trailer for her creepy new haunted-cabin flick, The Presence. The fact that it was produced by The Blair Witch Project’s Daniel Myrick only heightened our interest.

What can we tell from the trailer to this straight-to-dvd supernatural thriller? Well, first off, that Ms. Sorvino (sorry, Academy Award-winner Ms. Sorvino) appears to have inherited a secluded cabin in the woods from her grandfather, »

Fan-Made Trailer Bombards Bradley Cooper’s Five Senses

13 July 2011 12:30 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Having had his first go at leading man status earlier this year with Limitless, Bradley Cooper looks destined for increasingly big things.

What is not at all clear is how this trailer fits in with all of that. At first sight, it looks like a fascinating premise, that a man who fails to properly use each of his five senses (for example by looking away when a woman is attacked in a side alley) eventually begins to lose them.

However, SlashFilm says this is a fan-made trailer, cobbled together from Cooper’s work in other films. Having not seen Limitless, from which much of this content is presumably taken, I can’t comment, though I definitely recognise a fall from The A-Team amidst all of the kinetic activity. Five Senses looks like an upcoming graphic novel release by Viper Comics, putting this trailer firmly in the viral marketing camp, though »

BBC2 looks to drama to solve identity crisis in the shadow of budget cuts

9 May 2011 6:09 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Caught between big sister BBC1 and upstarts BBC3 and BBC4, the 'difficult middle child' is working to regain its niche with increased investment in drama – despite cost cuts

It has been called the BBC's "difficult middle child"; the channel that sits uncomfortably between BBC1's high-wattage productions and digital upstarts BBC3 and BBC4; the network whose most popular shows are frequently snatched away by its more mainstream sibling, while other programmes that may once have found a home there now play out on the more niche outlets. So – minus Miranda and MasterChef, without the critically acclaimed Being Human or The Killing – what's left for BBC2?

Finding answers to this question is understood to be a priority for George Entwistle, who has just inherited responsibility for the BBC's portfolio of TV channels as the newly appointed BBC Vision director. Entwistle is said to remain convinced of the power and importance of channel brands, »

Four new crime dramas, all brimming with acting talent, offer conclusive proof of British TV's inferiority

Exile (BBC1) | iPlayer

The Shadow Line (BBC2) | iPlayer

Vera (ITV1) | ITV Player

Case Sensitive (ITV1) | ITV Player

Government statistics suggest that crime is declining in all areas except television, where various initiatives have failed to arrest its continuing commission. No amount of celebrity chefs nor property shows have done the trick. Not even costume dramas with bonnets and butlers. The truth is that when placed against the draw of a bloody murder or a violent rape, the rest of TV is about as effective as a community support officer at an armed robbery.

Last week no fewer than four new crime dramas made their fanfared debuts. Each one bore the trace of a handsome budget and loving attention, each one made confident demands – whether temporal or cerebral – on the viewer, and each one left »

What to Buy this Week: DVD and Blu-ray releases for March 28th

28 March 2011 3:00 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

It’s another packed week of DVD and Blu-ray releases, here’s the rundown of what’s available to buy from today, March 28th 2011.

Machete (DVD/Blu-ray)

A bad-ass, star-studded action-thriller from Robert Rodriguez (Desperado), Machete is an over-the-top homage to 1970′s exploitation movies, starring Danny Trejo as a Mexican Federale seeking revenge against a vicious drug lord (Steven Seagal), a ruthless vigilante (Don Johnson) and a power-mad politician (Robert De Niro). He is helped by a savvy immigration agent (Jessica Alba), revolutionary She (Michelle Rodriguez) and by his brother, a priest (Cheech Marin), and finds solace with a drug addict (Lindsay Lohan) along the way. Review.

Wake Wood (DVD)

Still grieving the death of their only child, Alice, a young couple relocate to the remote town of Wake Wood where they stumble on a group of villagers practising Pagan rituals. They soon learn that this ritual has the power to bring back the dead, »

Sundance 2011: fewer stars, more ideas – review

29 January 2011 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This year's Sundance film festival discouraged big-name Hollywood stars in favour of emerging talent

Kevin Macdonald's documentary marvel, Life in a Day, is formed out of some 4,500 hours of material shot by film amateurs around the world and sent in to YouTube. There are images of striking beauty, tender and funny scenes. Nothing much newsworthy happened on 24 July 2010, but as a girl from Illinois whose footage closes the film says, something did happen. At Sundance, to make sure we didn't all think we'd dreamed the whole thing up, 25 of the film-makers, from Chile, Bali, Ukraine, Dubai and indeed Britain sat on chairs and talked about the experience of seeing their work edited into a film. "Life is different now," the girl from Illinois said. "I feel different."

In bad times, it's easy to snuggle within a reassuring notion of the past. Perhaps this accounts for the excess of admiration »

Top 5 Most Anticipated German Films for 2011

5 January 2011 11:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Like in several other territories, commercial juggernauts will win it big in 2011. This should be the case for Germany. Til Schweiger, for example, is going to churn out family-oriented Kokowääh (no, that's not a word) and Keinohrhasen 3. As always, comedians are going to try to translate their concert hall fame into tickets, like Tom Gerhardt and Hilmi Sözer, who have teamed up for buddy-cop-com Die Superbullen, or Kurt Krömer, who's trying his luck in a movie called Eine Insel namens Udo - titles you won't have to memorize altogether, as they will hardly be exported to non-German-speaking countries. Pina, in contrast, will be: It's Wim Wenders' bow to the late Pina Bausch, a 3D dance theater experience running out of competition at coming February's Berlinale, dreaded in advance by arthouse purists. Meanwhile, these are some of the most promising German films that do show up on the horizon: #.5 Memory »

'Life Unexpected' Fan Columnist: Baze, The Boy Who Grew Up

5 January 2011 4:17 AM, PST | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Life Unexpected's finale is only two weeks away and we need to get ready, so make sure you keep a box of tissues close to your TV set. In the meantime, let's remember why we love Baze.

At first sight, he is the guy who can get away with anything thanks to his cuteness, playful personality and smirky sense of humor. By no means is he husband and -- let alone -- parent material! However, throughout his life he has mastered the art of proving people just how wrong they are about him, starting with his own father.
