'Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons' Preview - It's An Experience

Leave it to a film director to try to come up with some new ideas for video games. Josef Fares, best known for his work "Zozo" and other award-winning Swedish films, has teamed up with Starbreeze Studios, best known for their work on "The Darkness" and "The Chronicles of Riddick" (both of them) to collaborate on an all new title, "Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons," an experiential, single-player story.

'Antichrist' wins Nordic Council Film Prize
Berlin -- Writer-director Lars von Trier and producer Meta Louise Foldager have received the 2009 Nordic Council Film Prize for their art house shocker "Antichrist."

The prize, which comes with a $70,500 bursary, is presented annually to a feature film "of cultural value" produced in the Nordic territories. Previous winners include Finnish director Aki Kaurismaki for "The Man Without a Past" (2002) and "Zozo" from Swedish filmmaker Josef Fares.

The 2009 jury praised "Antichrist" as a "wild, visually beautiful and shockingly violent film," that "breaks down the boundaries between inner and outer realities."

"Antichrist" was the love-it-or-hate-it film in Cannes this year. Charlotte Gainsbourg won the best actress gong for her harrowing performance but many critics panned the film for its over the top gore. IFC is bowing "Antichrist" in the U.S. on VOD today and starts a limited release Friday.
