Final Destination creator Jeffrey Reddick's new short film, which he both wrote and directed, Good Samaritan, will be playing as part of this year's Screamfest L.A. film festival; and right now we have a couple of new stills for you! Dig 'em!
The film stars Toby Hemingway (pictured; Black Swan, The Covenant) and Rainn Wilson ("The Office," Super, House of 1000 Corpses). Based on the Hit List winning feature, Good Samaritan tells of Nathan Rome (Hemingway), an agoraphobic who videotaped a man get fatally beaten while numerous bystanders watched and didn't intervene.
The short opens with Nathan being interviewed by George Reed (Wilson), a conservative talk show host who blasts Nathan for his inaction. George points out that two of the other witnesses have died mysteriously and cryptically ponders if Nathan might be next. Nathan is convinced the other deaths were accidents. But after George shreds his morality on national TV, »

Patrick gets shirtless and says farewell … again, and Aidan displays his enhanced interrogation techniques
Here are five highlights:
Patrick decides to attend the wake of dear old demented dad, and after one of Jimmy’s co-workers (who is the walking definition of “Big Lug”) drones on about what a swell guy Jimmy was, Patrick interrupts, calling Jimmy a rapist, and for good measure hocks a giant loogie on to Jimmy’s picture. Hey, we all mourn in our own way. Unfortunately, Jimmy’s co-lugs aren’t too thrilled with Jimmy’s tribute, and proceed to beat the pulp out of him.
Victoria collects him from the hospital, and it’s obvious that Patrick is a lost man, drowning in his own anger.
Victoria: “You’re going to get yourself killed.”
Patrick: “Well, maybe I should.”
Victoria: “You don’t honestly believe that.”
Patrick: “I »
Exclusive: ICM Partners has reason to crow a little this morning. The agency just signed Sebastian Stan. He’s the goth-looking villain in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which Marvel Studios and Disney release shortly. Stan, who had been repped by Wme, appeared in the first Captain America as Bucky Barnes, the superhero’s sidekick in the WWII storyline who has a resurgence in the Marvel Comics and obviously the movie. He’s front and center in the sequel, but until that film comes out, Stan is better known for his stage work that includes starring opposite Ellen Burstyn in the Broadway revival of Picnic, and starring with Liev Schreiber in Eric Bogosian’s Talk Radio. His other film work includes The Apparition, Gone, Black Swan, Hot Tub Time Machine and The Covenant. He also did the USA Network’s Political Animals as well as Gossip Girl on the small screen. »

Since his break out in the late 1980s, director Renny Harlin has created films that seemed tailor-made for trailers, and more often than not, that trailer was a better experience than the film as a whole. (I.m looking at you, Cutthroat Island and The Covenant.) Harlin has topped himself with The Legend of Hercules, an action film that looks bigger and ballsier than anything he.s directed in recent years. But like most of his resume, it also looks like everyone forgot to have fun while making it. The TV spot above is a great example, as it.s filled with characters yelling at someone in peril and characters yelling because they.re in peril. I give you.Hercules! The kind of film that polarizes moviegoers even before making it to theaters, The Legend of Hercules is the somewhat rare giant blockbuster that is avoiding the summer release season »
