Deeper Than Yesterday To Screen At Sundance

7 December 2010 2:40 PM, PST | FilmInk.com.au | See recent FilmInk.com.au news »

On the back of news that Australian films Mad Bastards (directed by Brendan Fletcher) and Matthew Bate's Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure, are set to screen at Sundance next year, it has been announced that Ariel Kleiman's Deeper Then Yesterday, will also play at the festival, competing in the International Narrative Shorts category.   The Sundance Film Festival contains eight programs for short films and the 2011 line-up comprises 81 short films from Us and international filmmakers. The International Narrative Shorts program, which Deeper Than Yesterday is competing in, is one of the most prestigious in the world, with only 15 films selected for the category this year. »

The first trailer for Jodie Foster's "The Beaver" comes out

6 December 2010 9:55 AM, PST | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

Finally, Jodie Foster does a whole movie about beaver. Oh, sorry, what? I misunderstood. It’s about the animal kind of beaver. No, wait, really? It’s about the stuffed-animal kind of beaver. Ok, seriously, huh? It’s about a man who talks through a beaver puppet as a way to cope with his depression. And that man is Mel Gibson. Right, so that changes things.

The first trailer for The Beaver, Foster’s third directorial feature (after Little Man Tate and Home for the Holidays), has arrived. The result is equal parts weird and wannabe heartwarming.

Given Gibson’s recent ugly run-ins with the law and accusations of domestic violence, I would say this film is the very definition of a tough sell. Foster has steadfastly stood by Gibson’s side through his legal and personal problems. And in the marketing campaign they seem to be in full-blown redemption mode. »

Sundance 2011 announces competition titles

1 December 2010 2:06 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

As we’re getting ready to wrap up another great year of film, some are already looking to 2011 and what it will have to offer and what better way to look a head than with the first round of titles for the year’s first big festival: Sundance.

The list of festival titles isn’t as loaded with as many big name titles as have made the cut in previous years but there’s are definitely some interesting film in the competition line-up including Mike Cahill’s Another Earth which takes place on the eve of the discovery of a duplicate Earth (wicked!), Carlos Moreno’s All Our Dead One (Todos Tus Muertos) about a guy who finds a pile of dead bodies in the middle of his crops, Anne Sewitsky’s sexual drama Happy, Happy (Sykt Lykkelig) along with the Canadian/Japanese co-production Vampire.

Loads of great stuff on the line-up. »

2011 Sundance Film Festival Competition Films Announced

1 December 2010 1:57 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The announcement of the movies playing the 2011 Sundance Film Festival is like looking into our film futures. It's December and most movie fans are looking back at the last 12 months, picking out award winners, writing top ten lists, and chances are we haven't even heard of the Sundance films. They're just titles, people, words on a computer screen. Then in January they unspool on screens across Park City, Utah and become something more. Finally, months later, these are the movies we discuss with our friends and choose on ballots at awards parties. Yet we get to read about them now, a year in advance. Last year at this time, who had heard of Four Lions, Catfish, Exit Through The Gift Shop, Blue Valentine, The Kids Are All Right, Winter's Bone, Restrepo or Animal Kingdom? Sundance, that's who. All those films screened at the 2010 festival and now many have become not only personal favorites, »

2011 Sundance Film Festival In-Competition Line-Up Announced

Justin Bieber At The AMAs, Tsa Screenings And 'Mad Men' In Today's Twitter-Wood

22 November 2010 2:45 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

American Music Awards tweets consumed most of the Twitter-Wood feed Sunday night, with Justin Bieber pulling in the most celebrity endorsements by far. Personally, however, I'd like to endorse Nathan Fillion's perspective on the evening, as he remained focused on what really matters.

Airports, however, weren't nearly as luxurious as the AMAs this weekend, and if you were flying you were probably worried about whether the Tsa was going to scan you or give you a pat-down. Samm Levine proposed a trick to beating the system, while Judd Apatow pondered parenting decisions. Find out if you agree with either of them after the jump, right beneath John Hodgman's expectations for "Mad Men" Season 5.

Cholera In Haiti, 'Skyline' And 'Scream' In Today's Twitter-Wood

15 November 2010 1:53 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Now that a cholera epidemic has reached Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, and the death toll is climbing toward 1,000, the worsening situation has become a recurring topic of conversation in our Twitter feed. Danny DeVito was searching around for something to do to help yesterday, while Olivia Wilde shared a picture from a Haitian pediatric hospital where she's been hanging out.

In movie-related posts, "Skyline" prompted a few micro-reviews over the weekend. Sasha Grey broke her spectrum of reactions down into a single tweet and may have managed to break a Twitter-Wood record for most sentences in a single post. Check it out after the jump and see if you share her sentiments. Even if you don't, you'll see what Eli Roth received for participating in a "Scream" documentary and what Marlon Wayans recommends for the Minnesota Vikings.

Lil Wayne's Release, More Halloween Costumes And Prop 19 In Today's Twitter-Wood

4 November 2010 2:11 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Lil Wayne was a hot topic for conversation on and off of Twitter today now that he's out of lock-up. Donald Glover hopes someone was able to get a picture, while Marlon Wayans sounded skeptical, and David Faustino expects big things for Weezy tonight at his post-prison release party.

Halloween costume pictures have still be showing up as well, and you can find Billy Burke and Jason Mewes sharing what they wore after the jump. They're there along with Stephen Colbert's thoughts on Prop 19 failing in California, Elizabeth Banks with a face from "Lost" and the shooting location where you might have seen Emmy Rossum working today.

Let Me In interview: director Matt Reeves and star Kodi Smit-McPhee

4 November 2010 5:03 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With Let Me In due out today, Michael caught up with the film’s director Matt Reeves and star Kodi Smit-McPhee about adapting the Swedish novel for a Us audience...

Let Me In, the British-American remake of the Swedish vampire drama Let The Right One In, finally receives its UK general release this week. We loved the earlier take on John Ajvide Lindqvist's tale of two children bonding in less than conventional circumstances, so we must admit we approached this new adaptation, directed by Cloverfield's Matt Reeves and produced by a revamped (ugh) Hammer Film Productions, with a little bit of caution.

Luckily, we had the chance to sit in on a roundtable interview with Reeves, and lead actor Kodi Smit-McPhee, who stars as Owen, the lonely boy who befriends the mysterious night walker Abby (Chloe Moretz). We talked about the production, Kodi's approach to the material and »

Mel Gibson ‘Beaver’ film whittled down to a DVD release?

2 November 2010 8:26 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

HollywoodNews.com: Is Jodie Foster’s comedy “The Beaver” heading to DVD?

There’s some scuttle bucket that the edgy comedy starring Mel Gibson as a man who befriends a puppet on his hand is sidestepping a theatrical release. The pic’s distributor Summit Entertainment refutes such news and says that “Beaver” will bow next year.

In the film, Foster also plays Gibson’s wife.

An E! Online source said: “It’s going straight to DVD. I heard it from Jodie.”

Should “Beaver” be chucked to the DVD woodpile, it will be the second blow to the actor after being axed from his cameo in “Hangover 2.”

“Beaver” marks Foster’s third directing effort after ‘90s fare “Little Man Tate” and “Home for the Holidays.”

1 November 2010 9:40 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

BBC2 Halloween special beaten by Paul McCartney film on ITV but draws bigger audience than C4's Desperate Housewives

The Psychoville Halloween Special attracted just under 1.5 million viewers on BBC2 and the BBC HD channel last night, Sunday 31 October.

BBC2's one-off special of the comedy show from League of Gentlemen co-creators Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith attracted 1.451 million viewers and a 7.9% share to the channel from 10pm. A further 45,000 (0.2%) watched the BBC HD simulcast.

Competition in the 10pm hour included ITV1/ITV1 HD documentary Paul McCartney and Wings: Band on the Run (1.915 million/12%) and Channel 4's Desperate Housewives (1.26 million/6.7%, C4 +1 134,000/1.4%).

ITV1's The X Factor and Downton Abbey again dominated Sunday night viewing. The X Factor hit yet another ratings high as Belle Amie were eliminated, averaging 13.85 million (48.3%) across ITV1 and ITV1 HD from 8pm.

Downton Abbey was steady week on week, with 8.821 million (32.9%) on ITV1 and ITV1 HD from 9pm. »

John Stewart's Rally, 'The Walking Dead' And 'Rocky Horror' On 'Glee' In Today's Twitter-Wood

27 October 2010 2:00 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Michael Ian Black refuses to perform at John Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity this week, but he's got a good reason, and if you've been following his Twitter account you know what that is.

Meanwhile, the NBA tweets have been in full swing with the new season officially kicked off. Danny Pudi was all about it yesterday, while Marlon Wayans sounded worried about the Miami Heat. While the NBA is a popular topic in Twitter-Wood, it still may not have been as popular as AMC's "The Walking Dead"; Carlton Cuse and Eric Appel checked out the premiere last night and posted their thoughts. You'll find them after the jump along with Brian Lynch's concerns about last night's "Glee" episode.

Marlon Wayans Cast as a Dollar Bill in Harmony Korine’s Twinkle Twinkle

25 October 2010 8:01 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Marlon Wayans (G.I. Joe) has been cast as a dollar bill in the upcoming Harmony Korine picture Twinkle, Twinkle. Let me repeat: according to TheWrap, Marlon Wayans has been cast as a dollar bill. All right — technically he’ll be playing a former hitman who dresses up in a dollar bill costume… but I’m not sure how that makes the news any less bizarre.

To be frank, judging from Harmony Korine’s oeuvre, this news shouldn’t be all that surprising. I mean this is the man whose previous film Trash Humpers focused on a bunch of sociopathic elderly people who got their kicks vandalizing homes and murdering folks. Such a synopsis would seem to be immediately appealing; but I’m sad to report the film itself is just a down right chore to sit through (as is much of Korine’s filmography).

Justin Bieber Tops List Of Celebs We'd Love To See With A 'Hangover'

22 October 2010 3:19 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Love Mel Gibson or loathe him, you have to admit you were at least interested -- if not excited -- to see what he'd do with his cameo as a Bangkok tattoo artist in "The Hangover 2." Sadly, some cast and crew unrest put the kibosh on that, and "The Hangover 2" is now eying Liam Neeson, Robin Williams or Kurt Russell as a potential replacement.

While those three veteran actors sound like dandy options, we can't help but think that there are a few other celebs out there that would kick butt in a cameo so over-the-top outrageous that it'd make Mike Tyson singing look like high drama. As you may have surmised from the photo above, Justin Bieber made our "Hangover" cameo shortlist as a "Little Man"-esque version of baby Carlos. Hit the jump to see who else is on our wishlist!

Nobody rocks a cameo like Britney Spears. »
