Synopsis: 1898. Alaskan frontier. Two brothers, balanced on the knife’s edge between foreclosure and salvation, head deep into the wilderness in an attempt to execute a warrant in hopes of saving their home. Torn from their family, they face harsh elements, crazed men, and death at every corner in pursuit of the outlaw, a twisted man who has turned the Yukon Territory into his own personal hell. The Timber captures the mania, starvation, swindles, hardships, and dangers that were part of the late 19th century’s historic rush for gold. This is a story of greed, betrayal, and redemption in a place where bloodshed was »

This Friday, Sinister 2 arrives in theaters everywhere courtesy of Gramercy Pictures. The sequel follows James Ransone’s character from the first film, Deputy So & So, as he tracks down Bughuul to an isolated farmhouse where a mother (Shannyn Sossamon) and her twin sons (Robert and Dartanian Sloan) are currently living and must stop the demonic force before it claims another family.
Daily Dead had an opportunity to speak with Ransone earlier this week about returning for another Sinister, becoming a main character for the sequel, collaborating with director Ciarán Foy as well as his co-stars. Ransone also offered some hilarious insight into his process as an actor and even chatted with us about his time working on The Wire.
Thanks for speaking with me today, James—you were great in the film and it’s cool to see how the Deputy has evolved since the first Sinister. How much »

Taking the tried-and-tested identity parade route to posterhood, Masterminds’ new UK quad introduces the heist comedy’s gallery of rogues. Roguing it up from left to right are Owen Wilson’s hapless accomplice Steve; Zach Galifianakis’ armoured car driver-turned-bank robber David; his other sidekick, Kristen Wiig’s Kelly; and Jason Sudeikis’s gormless hitman, Mike McKinney. The intellectual force is not strong in this lot.Formerly known as Loomis Fargo, the long-awaited comedy from Napoleon Dynamite's Jared Hess now goes by that more-than-a-little-ironic handle. Inspired by a true incident in 1997, the story involves armoured car driver David, who channels his antipathy for the job into a plan to liberate a fortune from a bank vault. $17 million dollars worth. Sadly for him, he’s hardly operating at Inside Man or Rififi levels of competence. The trail of evidence for the police practically comes with its own sat-nav.Double-crossed by Steve, »

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart team up in this comedy about a rich hedge-fund manager who is sentenced to San Quentin; desperate for tips on how to survive prison, he looks for help from a black businessman, assuming he'll know what to do. That's not racist at all! As it turns out, Hart's businessman has never even had a parking ticket, so it's the blind leading the blind. The Blu-ray has tons of extras, including an unrated cut of the film, a gag reel, deleted scenes, and these featurettes: "Just Put Your Lips Together and Blow," "Get Hard Line-o-Ramas," "The Kevin Hart Workout," "Face Off with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart," "-Ferrell Fighting," "A Date with John Mayer, »

Morgan Spurlock is an admitted workaholic--he's still delivering shows for his CNN series "Inside Man"--who can't say no. And he's prepping a new Maker channel to launch in August. He admits that he sleeps about four hours a night. Still, given a window to shoot a half-hour doc short about three sets of artisans, he took it. He shot with a small crew, traveling to Georgia, San Francisco and Japan over three weeks. "I'm in a fortunate spot, as a filmmaker," he told me, "to actually take projects you want to make vs. ones you have to make. I have the ability to take 6 weeks or a month to do short films. When I have a window I jump at the chance." Tuesday night he debuted his new half-hour doc "Crafted" at the Los Angeles Film Festival, which was made available exclusively Thursday on Amazon Prime Instant Video. The »

Las Vegas - It's not an understatement to suggest that since they last presented their wares to the world's theater owners Sony Pictures has had a pretty dramatic 12 months . December's North Korean hacking scandal made the release of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's "The Interview" a global news story where the studio and exhibitors blamed each other for not screening the film in mainstream theaters. And, frankly, when Potus gets involved there better be a lot of water under that bridge to put all that behind you. Five months later Sony has a new Chairman (Tom Rothman) and, luckily, much better films to help heal some delicate wounds. The studio didn't have the star power to rival previous presenters Paramount and Warner Bros, but they did bring a lot of new footage and also made some news. First, let's get to the news. Sony revealed that a new "Jump »

It's been awhile since writer and director Spike Lee had a film that wowed me. Though I'd call myself a fan of Lee's previous efforts such as Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X, School Daze and The 25th Hour, his recent efforts just haven't measured up to his potential. In fact, I would say that the last great film Lee made was Inside Man back in 2006. But his next project sounds promising as The Wrap reports Amazon Studios has picked up Lee's next drama called Chiraq. And right now Lee is hoping to land Samuel L. Jackson, Common, Jeremy Piven and rapper Kanye West for the ensemble cast. So what's the new film about? Well, the title refers to a nickname that his been given to the city of Chicago due to the level of corruption and gun violence that continues to rise in the Windy City. If that's still too subtle for you, »

"Brace your boobies." There's plenty of slick heists, from Ocean's Eleven to Inside Man, but the story at the heart of Masterminds doesn't seem to be one of them. In the action comedy from Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite), a robbery is planned by a ragtag team of dimwits including Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson, and somehow they get away with it. But that's just where the chaos seems to begin. It's hard to tell what's going on in this chaotic teaser trailer for the comedy, but Jason Sudeikis already seems like he will be the high point of this flick, with the low point being that terrible wig Galifianakis is wearing. Here's the teaser trailer for Jared Hess' Masterminds from YouTube: Masterminds is directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Gentlemen Broncos, Nacho Libre) and written by Danny McBride & Jody Hill ("Eastbound & Down") and Chris Bowman & Hubbel Palmer »
