The film that caused a stir at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival - Bad Words - has finally hit the web with its first red-band trailer.
Bad Words is a darkly comic tale of a 40 year old high school drop-out who enters a national spelling bee – much to the annoyance of children, teachers and parents alike. The film marks the highly anticipated directorial debut of actor Jason Bateman (Arrested Development, Horrible Bosses), who also takes the lead role of potty-mouthed, feather-ruffler, Guy Trilby.
Unsurprisingly, given his career longevity, Bateman has snagged an impressive supporting cast for his first time behind the movie camera, with Kathryn Hahn, Allison Janney, Beth Grant, Ben Falcone and Phillip Baker Hall rounding out the list. Also starring is Rohan Chand (Jack and Jill, Homeland), in what seems to be an astonishingly accomplished turn for only his third time before the cameras.

Never let the truth get in the way of a good script! That seems to be the ever-growing mantra in recent historically-inspired TV programming, and Lifetime's new miniseries Bonnie & Clyde, which premiered tonight, appears to push that notion even further. In this version, starring Emile Hirsch (Milk) and Holliday Grainger (The Borgias), Clyde suffers from Donnie Darko-style visions of his bloody future, and just wants to settle down, and it's Bonnie who persuades him to embark on an epic crime spree. Poor Clyde just couldn't get out from under her clutches. Many critics are appalled, particularly because the four-part docudrama is also being televised on the History Channel (and A&E), but »

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2001, and a vintage year for lesser-seen gems...
Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C Clarke may have seen 2001 as the year we'd head off to meet alien intelligences in the depths of space, but in reality, its cinematic landscape was dominated by fantasy rather than extra-terrestrials. Rowling and Tolkien dominated the box office, with Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone and The Fellowship Of The Ring earning almost $1bn each, while Monsters, Inc and Shrek thrilled old and young audiences alike.
At the other end of the spectrum of success, 2001 was such a vintage year for movies that we had to whittle our usual selection of 25 films down from an initial selection of more than 40. This is why the decision was made - with heavy heart - to exclude some of our favourite films, »

Nb: this article contains massive spoilers for Catching Fire, and a shadow of a spoiler for Mockingjay. It also assumes some familiarity with the Hunger Games universe and characters.
Jennifer Lawrence is the star of The Hunger Games. I mean, obviously: she’s playing the main character, and she’s widely acknowledged to be amazing, in Catching Fire as well as everything else she’s ever done. But while J-Law is indisputably fantastic, there are moments when even she gets overshadowed by Jena Malone’s portrayal of District 7 Victor Johanna Mason.
Okay, so Johanna isn’t in many scenes, and Catching Fire is still very much Katniss’s story. But for such a minor character, it’s striking how much she leaps off the screen. »
Nothing is certain but death, taxes, and sequels. That's how the phrase goes, and we won't let anyone tell us otherwise. It should be no surprise to anyone who vaguely follows Hollywood news that nothing is sacred, but even so, there's something especially galling about the prospect of a sequel to It's a Wonderful Life.
We should all bear in mind that, much like the Casablanca sequel that was rumoured last year, this may well never amount to anything. But forewarned is forearmed, and so we've put our Worst Case Scenario hat on to dream up some equally horrifying possibilities.
Here are seven of Digital Spy's very best worst pitches for movie sequels.
Warning: This article contains spoilers that some readers may prefer to avoid... including the ending of Gravity. You have been warned!
But wait, we hear you cry. What's the eighth deadly sin? That's exactly the »
Slim Pickens was an actor known for One Eyed Jacks, Blazing Saddles and of course Dr Strangelove. What you get this week is not Pickens the actor iconically riding the bomb down to the ground in the Stanley Kubrick classic or any kind of online retrospective of his work, but slim pickings in terms of new streaming choices. So it’s Netflix’s time to shine….
Netflix has added more or less all of the low-key interesting independent films from last year with real gems like Safety Not Guaranteed and Maniac and even the lesser likes of Excision and Some Guy Who Kills People. It’s entirely possible that Lovefilm/Amazon is behind closed doors after last week’s Marvel/Netflix news, plotting something with DC comics but we will see…
Safety Not Guaranteed (2012)
One of the most charming and inventive indie films of last year was this time travel »

Remember when Gary Jules managed to make Tears for Fears’ “Mad World” even more melancholy in “Donnie Darko?” Now New Zealand wunderkind Lorde has found the dark heart of the group’s bouncy “Everybody Wants to Save the World” for the “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” soundtrack. This is one of those great matches of artist, song and movie. The 17-year-old’s cutting delivery makes her sound like she could be one of the Hunger Games’ more formidable teenage killers.

Hollywood history always makes for fascinating reading. Hindsight and whatnot. During a month in which Sound on Sight takes an opportunity to tip a collective hat in the direction of recently ‘retired’ workhorse auteur Steven Soderbergh, there is a further chance to reel back the years and examine a period of time when one of modern cinema’s finest acolytes was transforming from indie hero to mainstream heavyweight. Of course, it all seems so predictable now that he would follow up his 2001 Oscar win with 12 years of financial and critical success with unmatched versatility. What is more interesting are two fellow directors sharing the limelight with him that year, the trio hailed as the hottest directorial properties in the business. Chances are many of you do not remember the name Richard Kelly. It’s likely most of you have no wish to recall the work of M. Night Shyamalan. 2001 was a strange year. »

The much anticipated sequel to The Hunger Games, Catching Fire is readying itself for release on the 22nd November and today, Lionsgate have released the first official clip showing Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth) having a casual discussion with protagonist Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). Check it out below....
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever."

Dead Sea follows a marine biologist who reluctantly returns to the town she grew up in, only to encounter the violent paranoia that has overtaken its locals as they prepare for the return of a serpentine creature said to appear every thirty years to feed.
The science fiction thriller is written and directed by Brandon Slagle (2012 Shockfest Award Winner - Best Director, The Black Dahlia Haunting) and stars Alexis Iacono (The Penny Dreadful Picture Show, Blue Caprice), Britt Griffith (Syfy's "Ghost Hunters"), Devanny Pinn (Nude Nuns with Big Guns), James Duval (Independence Day, Donnie Darko), Chanel Ryan (Bad Kids Go to Hell, BASEketball), Candace Kita (Barb Wire, "Nip/Tuck"), Jw Wiseman ("Deadliest Warrior"), Tawny Amber Young (The Guilt Trip, »

Following the surprising success of the critically acclaimed crime-thriller Prisoners, Jake Gyllenhaal looks set to follow it up with another gritty drama Southpaw. The long-gestating project has struggled on its way to the big-screen after being in development since 2010, with sulky superstar rapper Eminem set for the lead despite his only previous big-screen experience being semi-autobiograhical drama 8 Mile. The Donnie Darko actor is currently said to be in final negotiations.
Training Day and Olympus Has Fallen director Antoine Fuqua is still attached to direct and is hoping to begin shooting early next year. Once work is completed on his reboot of cult series The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington. The plot will see Gyllenhaal as a left-handed fighter who wins a major title in the sport. Suffering a tragedy shortly afterwards, his life spirals out of control but finds he must piece it back together before hitting rock bottom and losing his young daughter. »

Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings is regarded as not only one of the fantasy genre’s most epic trilogies, but one of the most renowned film trilogies of all time. Though it’s hard to imagine anyone else taking on the iconic roles made famous by actors like Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Sean Astin and others, the cast that ultimately came to lead the film wasn’t always the one that was initially in place. In fact, there were several actors who auditioned for the role of Frodo before it went to Wood.
Jake Gyllenhaal was one such actor, and according to him, “it was literally one of the worst auditions.” He says he “remember[s] auditioning for ‘The Lord of the Rings’ [the role of Frodo] and going in and not being told that I needed a British accent,” he said. “I really do remember Peter Jackson saying to me, ‘You »

After starting his career as a child actor, launching his career with a small role in 1991's City Slickers, Jake Gyllenhaal has become one of the most talented reliable male stars working today. Starring in a couple movies every single year, the Oscar nominee puts 100% into each of his parts, be it starring in Brokeback Mountain, Zodiac, End of Watch, or, most recently, Prisoners. Talented as he may be, however, there was one role that completely escaped his grasp: Frodo in Lord of the Rings. With the year starting to wind down, The Hollywood Reporter has begun their series of roundtables with the most prominent names in the Oscar race, and while sitting down with Gyllenhaal, Matthew McConaughey, Forest Whitaker, Jared Leto, Josh Brolin and Michael B. Jordan the trade got the Donnie Darko star to talk about his worst audition ever - which happened to be for Peter Jackson »

"Not long after the Rubik's cube was introduced to Americans came this tale of a different kind of puzzle box, the kind you really don't want to solve...or open. While the creepy Cenobites promise their victims eternity in a world of pleasure, pain and suffering, we only get see the pain and suffering part of that guarantee, underscored by the demon Pinhead's assurance that, in his words, "We'll Tear Your Soul Apaaaaart."
2. "The X-Files" episode "Home"
"There are many episodes of "The X-Files" that will keep a person up at night, but "Home" took the show's queasiness factor to new levels of ickiness by liberally playing with the horror trope of backwoods murderous maniacs. »
