Check out the new clip of Jared Hess comedy Don Verdean starring Danny McBride & Sam Rockwell

27 January 2015 9:02 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jared Hess is back at it again with his latest film Don Verdean. This is the comedic writer/director (and sometimes actor’s) first film in six years. Check out the new clip here…

In the above clip, Danny McBride, who plays Tony Lazarus attempts to proposition biblical archaeologist Don Verdean (Sam Rockwell) to come work for his church the Lazarus fellowship. After offering to bankroll his endeavors, Leslie Bibb who plays Joylinda Lazarus, helps drive the nail in the coffin, so to speak. After very little actual convincing, Verdean willingly obliges. “I think it’s fair to say this might be a match made in heaven,” says Verdean with an obviously bad religious pun.

Don Verdean follows the title character (Sam Rockwell), a Biblical archaeologist hired by the local church pastor to find faith-promoting relics in the Holy Land. After proving unsuccessful in his attempts to find anything of substance, »

As Park City shimmers with star sightings, one director arrives at a film-fest party with a +23.

Director Eli Roth rolled into Sundance Film Festival hotspot Tao with about +23 (we lost count), while real “Entourage” guy Adrian Grenier talked about a sequel to the film while staying true to his “Aquaman” roots and promoting his “Lonely Whale” documentary project.

Lionsgate Picks Up Don Verdean, The New Film From The Napoleon Dynamite Duo

22 January 2015 5:52 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I know that most of you have seen Napoleon Dynamite. I am equally certain that most of you can quote one, if not more, lines from that aforementioned film of awkward hilarity. But you might not be aware of what Jared and Jerusha Hess have done since they unleashed Napoleon and his weird clique on an unsuspecting world. Lionsgate is hoping that you will still have some passion left for their work, though, as they picked up the Hess’ new film Don Verdean very quickly at Sundance.

Lionsgate acquired the film for U.S. distribution several days in advance of its premiere at Sundance – which either says that the studio is hard up for new releases, or that they have great faith in what the Hesses have produced.

For those who don’t know, Don Verdean features Sam Rockwell as a biblical archaeologist hired by a pastor to find artifacts from the Holy Land. »

Sam Rockwell's 'Don Verdean' already has a home before its Sundance premiere

21 January 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There has been a lot of heat going into Sundance that this year's festival could be another buyer's market for mini-majors and indie distributors looking to fill out their 2015 slates. Fox Searchlight already picked up Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig's "Mistress America" and now Lionsgate has surprised by acquiring another premiere title, Jared Hess' "Don Verdean." A potential comeback for the man behind "Napoleon Dynamite," "Verdean" finds Sam Rockwell playing the title character, a biblical archeologist brought on by a small town church pastor to find "faith-promoting" historical items in the Holy Land. He has to get creative when his expedition comes up short. The rest of the cast is rounded out by Jemaine Clment, Amy Ryan, Danny McBride, Leslie Bibb and Will Forte. Hess' first break was when "Napoleon Dynamite" exploded out of Sundance in 2004. A decade later he returns after one major hit, 2006's "Nacho Libre, »

Lionsgate Picks Up 'Don Verdean' Before Its Premiere at Sundance

21 January 2015 4:54 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The 2015 Sundance Film Festival won't even begin until tomorrow, but Lionsgate has already picked up a film debuting in Park City this month. It's been 11 years since director Jared Hess made a huge splash at Sundance with Napoleon Dynamite, and now he's back with Don Verdean, a new comedy starring Sam Rockwell, Jemaine Clement, Amy Ryan, Danny McBride, Will Forte and more. And now Deadline reports Lionsgate has already picked up the distribution rights to the film before it premieres next week. Does this mean that Hess might finally have another good film to follow his breakthrough indie sensation? We certainly hope so, especially since it's one of our 10 most anticipated films of the festival. More below! Here's our first look at Jared Hess' Don Verdean from the Sundance film guide: Don Verdean is directed by Jared Jess (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre), who co-wrote the script with his brother Jerusha Hess. »

The New Year Brings Gains And Losses To Your Netflix Watch Instantly Queue

20 January 2015 10:54 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix has just released their lists of what films and TV shows we will see added in February…and what films and TV shows will vanish.

First, the good news: quite a few classic and popular TV shows are making the grade on the streaming service, including the first five seasons of Mash,  Hawaii 5-0, and the new season of House of Cards. New additions to the film list include RoboCop, The Brothers Bloom, and Gimme Shelter. While there’s not a lot of quality stuff on offer, there are at least a few new films and TV shows that we can enjoy on the Netflix streaming service.

Now for the bad news: quite a number of favorites are going to vanish from Netflix come February 1. Among these are several James Bond films, Zodiac, Jane Eyre, and Dredd. The TV shows fare even worse, with tons of BBC shows expiring, »
