You used to be cool, you used to be cool, you used to be cool.

Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes and clips and puts it all in perspective. Christian Slater has always been cool. As a kid, I totally looked up to him. I first saw him in Heathers, where he blew me away as a teenage Jack Nicholson. Everyone had a Jack Nicholson imitation back then, but only Christian Slater embodied his rebellious spirit (and, yes, mimicking his nasally, wise ass voice). He was the smarmiest teenager in school cafeteria history. When Pump Up the Volume came out, I was a high school student, and I didn't buy any of what the movie was selling. Even then, I could hear Hollywood execs saying, "This is what the kids, like, right? Cool disc jockeys!" But Christian Slater was charismatic enough to make it work. But then came one of the coolest movies ever made, True Romance, solidifying »

Rose Troche Does Vr: How A Major ’90s Filmmaker Is Making New Technology Indie

17 August 2016 8:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“If I tell you to move a little, it’s not because I don’t think you’re beautiful,” said Rose Troche, speaking to an extra on the set for her latest Vr film, an untitled short based on the Orlando shooting. “I like to have things happening all over.”

Most of the extras were too young to remember “Go Fish,” Troche’s history-making debut feature. (Made for an estimated $15,000, it made over $2.5 million at the box office.) Shot in black and white, “Go Fish” is a lesbian romantic comedy that became the little indie that could when it played Sundance in 1994. “I don’t think ‘Go Fish’ launched a thousand queer filmmakers so much as it launched a thousand indie filmmakers,” Troche said.

Troche went on to direct “Bedrooms and Hallways” in 1998 and “The Safety of Objects” in 2001. Since then she’s moved to TV, directing an episode of »

16 August 2016 2:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

People walk in and out of your life all the time, and it’s not clear what they do after they leave. Are they the same person? Did they become just like you? Did they drop off the face of the map? Or did they in fact leave their old life behind and become someone else entirely? Joshua Marston’s new romantic identity drama “Complete Unknown” centers around a woman (Rachel Weisz) who constantly leaves her identity behind and reinvents herself, and soon tries to bring an ex-lover (Michael Shannon) into her spontaneous life. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

10 August 2016 10:38 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What if you just walked away from your life and completely started over? What if you walked away from that new life and started over again? What if you did that again and again and again? That’s the premise of Joshua Marston’s new romantic identity drama “Complete Unknown,” starring Rachel Weisz as a woman who constantly reinvents herself and soon brings an ex-lover Tom (Michael Shannon) into her manufactured world.

Emmy-Nominated Limited Series and Movie Actresses Portray Real Life

10 August 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

To paraphrase George Orwell, while all acting may be equally hard, some roles are harder than others. Emmy voters took that philosophy to heart this year, particularly in the lead actress in a limited series or a movie category, nominating a group of women for their challenging, gritty roles: Kerry Washington (“Confirmation”), Sarah Paulson (“The People v. O.J. Simpson”), Audra McDonald (“Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill”), Felicity Huffman and Lili Taylor (“American Crime”), and Kirsten Dunst (“Fargo”).

Washington and Paulson have both stated that playing Anita Hill and Marcia Clark, respectively, have been their toughest roles ever, and both stress the responsibility of portraying living, still-active people. “You don’t have that freedom you get when playing invented characters, especially when you’ve met the real person ­— as I did, towards the end of the shoot,” notes Paulson. “And I had to battle against my own preconceptions about Marcia.

Aire Atlantica Drops A Remix Of Billie Eilish’s “Six Feet Under”

4 August 2016 10:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

14 year old vocalist Billie Eilish made a splash when her single “Ocean Eyes” started to catch fire on Spotify as it racked up millions of plays around the globe. Now, up and coming producer Aire Atlantica has dropped an official remix of Eilish’s recent single “Six Feet Under,” delivering a gorgeous re-imagining of the somber pop tune.

The new “Six Feet Under” mix opens with an organic drum loop and an emotional synth progression. Eilish’s distinctive crooning soon enters the mix, as Aire Atlantica builds a subdued production around her voice. Following up on the verses, things get really interesting as a catchy melody is played out on a warped vocal sample atop crashing percussion and enticing chords.

Moving on from his earlier electro-house work, Aire Atlanitca has developed a sound all his own and his new Billie Eilish remix cements his status as a producer to keep an eye on. »

Wondering Why Sia Covers Her Face While Performing?

Sia has made a big comeback in the past couple years, and if you've watched any of her recent performances, you might be wondering what the heck is going on. Though she broke out when "Breathe Me" was featured in the last episode of Six Feet Under in 2005 and has worked on countless songs you know, only recently has she taken to performing with her back to the camera. She wrote an "Anti-Fame Manifesto" for Billboard in 2013, explaining why she has no interest in being famous: "If anyone besides famous people knew what it was like to be a famous person, they would never want to be famous. Imagine the stereotypical highly opinionated, completely uninformed mother-in-law character and apply it to every teenager with a computer in the entire world.

The X-Files: The Event Series Review

6 July 2016 11:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After nine years of monsters, aliens and shadow government conspiracies, The X-Files closed its doors during the spring of 2002. Taken off air as a result of declining ratings and a general drop in quality, its loss left a large hole in the hearts of many who’d followed along since the early 90s.

Thankfully for us Xphiles, what was once thought to be dead didn’t stay buried long. In 2008, creator Chris Carter brought his now iconic series back into the limelight with the stand-alone movie, I Want to Believe. However, while it brought fans the married Mulder and Scully tandem that they’d been pining for for years, an uninteresting plot, some embarrassing writing and poor casting decisions led to a box office flop.

I Want to Believe‘s high profile failure was thought to be the final nail in the show’s coffin. Fans were unhappy, Fox was »
