Read our Donnie Darko Where Are They Now feature below.
Donnie Darko Where Are They Now
Can you believe it’s been fifteen years since we were first introduced to Donnie Darko? Released back in 2001, the film told of eponymous eighties teenager Donnie whose life starts to unravel after a visit from a time-travelling giant rabbit named Frank. Donnie Darko is a mind-bending movie that has since amassed a substantial cult following over the years.
To mark the special Birthday, Arrow Films are releasing a special edition version of the film. When we say special, we mean really genuinely special. The new release not only features new content in the shape of interviews etc., but also a 4K restoration of the movie itself. This painstaking »

Find out what Willie and Thurman Merman have been up to in the Nsfw Animated Shorts for Bad Santa 2. These animated shorts feature raunchy, laugh out loud moments from our favorite anti-hero as seen through the eyes of his trusty kind-hearted sidekick with the help of some clever animation. Don't miss this hilarious new comedy starring Billy Bob Thornton, Kathy Bates, Christina Hendricks, Tony Cox and Brett Kelly in theaters this Thanksgiving!
These animated shorts, which come courtesy of Broad Green Pictures, are entitled That's My Willie, which show that Thurman is still quite naive, as we see what Brett Kelly's Thurman Merman thinks about his hero, Willie Soke (Billy Bob Thornton). These brief shorts feature Thurman's thoughts about Black Friday, how Willie taught Thurman how to drive when he was just 12 years old, and how Willie almost "caught a train" to the end of the line.

Watch: Drew Barrymore Dishes on Her Secrets to Co-Parenting and Makeup-Free Beauty
"#girlswhocheerdadon #nycmarathon well done!!!," she captioned one sweet picture with the two girls in Kopelman's arms.
"#showingthegirls #tofinsihistowin #proud," she captioned another photo, showing a huge family hug.
Barrymore and Kopelman finalized their divorce in August after four years of marriage, but the two have continued to be on good terms to co-parent their children.
The Whip It director wasn't the only celeb at the finish line -- but some of the others had to get there the hard way, via a 26-mile run through New York City's five boroughs.

Looking ahead to the movies heading to cinemas in time for Christmas...
The festive season is a great time to go to the pictures. There’s nothing quite like taking solace when it’s cold outside by cramming in with some like-minded folk to see a (hopefully) great movie.
Unsurprisingly, Hollywood studios have cottoned on to this. Year on year, there seems to more and more choice at the cinema come Christmas time. It’s almost like a second summer season, in terms of the sheer volume of major movies on offer. This isn’t likely to change any time soon, especially when you look at the cash banked by Star Wars: The Force Awakens last Christmas. And that's not to mention the festive season's nearness to the Oscar race, which means that the major movies keep coming well into January.
There are many movies rocking around the multiplex during this Yuletide, »
Here’s your daily dose of an indie film, web series, TV pilot, what-have-you in progress — at the end of the week, you’ll have the chance to vote for your favorite.

I think we can all agree, that while we may love Chris Hemsworth as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, his solo adventures have left a little something to be desired. That being said, Thor: Ragnarok is shaping up to be something very interesting, and potentially special. Things just got even more interesting, as Marvel Studios has tapped Devo co-founder Mark Mothersbaugh to compose the original score for Thor's third solo outing.
Entertainment Weekly confirmed the news that Mothersbaugh will be joining the project, which was originally reported by The Wrap. The studio has yet to make the announcement official. Many may feel that he is a peculiar choice to put together the music for Thor: Ragnarok, but Mothersbaugh has actually had a very impressive career outside of writing 80s hits like "Whip It" and "Uncontrollable Urge." He has nearly 200 composing credits to his name, dating back to the late 1980s. »

Well, it’s going to be dirty, that much is for sure. Here’s one of those films I genuinely thought would never happen, no matter how many times they announced it. The original Bad Santa, directed by Terry Zwigoff, was manhandled so much during post-production and even after release that it’s one of those accidental hits. It wasn’t released by Miramax as much as it was abandoned to its fate. But one of the greatest things about the way films are digested by culture is that home video gives movies a long tail, and people can discover films over time, and word of mouth is still, at the end of the day, the single greatest weapon a film has. Bad Santa was a film that people passed along when they discovered it, and it’s a film that people tended to rewatch repeatedly as they shared it with other people. »

Thirteen years after the filthy hijinks of Bad Santa, professional thieves Willie T. Soke (Billy Bob Thornton) and right-hand-man Marcus (Tony Cox) reunite in the film's long-awaited sequel. The first trailer finds that disgruntled duo talking business at a diner, as Marcus teases a new job with a potential windfall of "millions." Fittingly, Soke fires back with a racist one-liner.
Overall, the clip is light on plot and heavy on button-pushing quips — like Soke, dressed in his familiar Santa attire, spouting profanity at passerby ("Ho, ho, merry Christmas. Feed the starving children. »
Pegged to hit theaters on November 23, when the black comedy sequel will bring its unique brand of festive cheer to moviegoers, Mark Waters (Mean Girls) is calling the shots behind the lens, and though 13 years have past since the original cult hit, Thornton hasn’t lost any of his charm as the bitter curmudgeon.
Indeed, many are hailing the mere existence of Bad Santa 2 as an early Christmas miracle. Long before Waters came aboard, a sequel to an R-rated seasonal hit from yesteryear was little more than a pipe dream, but low and behold, soon after Thornton confirmed he would don the big red suit once more, Broad Green Pictures and Miramax eased the wheels into motion.
And that’s »

After nearly five years of rumors about a “Bad Santa 2” being in the works, we finally have a trailer for the much anticipated holiday movie. Judging by the looks of things, star Billy Bob Thornton’s Willie Soke hasn’t warmed up to his job as jolly old St. Nick one bit.
So what took so long getting the sequel off the ground? “The writer is still working on the script. He’s doing his rewrite right now,” Thornton told The Playlist way back in 2012. “We saw the first draft and we just had a few little things we wanted to take away or add and he’s doing that. The plan is to shoot that in the fall.” As is frequently the case in Hollywood, unanticipated script revisions can add years to a project’s timeline.
Miramax and Broad Green Pictures are releasing the movie in November. Thornton »

RedOne might not be the most recognizable name in music - but he's responsible for some of the biggest Top 40 hits of the century. Born Nadir Khayat in Morocco in 1972, RedOne began producing and songwriting music in 1998. By 2006, he scored Billboard hits like Kat DeLuna's summer jam "Whine Up." But it wasn't until he teamed up with Lady Gaga that he became a go-to hitmaker in Hollywood. RedOne co-wrote and produced most of Gaga's earliest hits, from breakouts "Just Dance" and "Poker Face" to "LoveGame." Now 44 and with three Grammys to his name, RedOne has produced hits for everyone in the industry, »

With less than a month to go until its release, Netflix has released a poster and trailer for its critically-acclaimed feature film Tallulah, which stars Ellen Page and Allison Janney; check them out here…
Tallulah, the Netflix original film, was written and directed by Sian Heder (Orange is the New Black), and tells the story of young vagabond, Lu (Ellen Page – Whip It, Inception), who lives in a van and is fiercely independent in her hand-to-mouth existence. When a chance encounter incites her to impulsively “rescue” a baby from a negligent mother, Lu, at a loss for what to do, turns to the only responsible adult she knows: Margo (Allison Janney – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, The Way, Way Back), who mistakenly believes she’s the child’s grandmother.

Recurring Orange Is The New Black writer Sian Heder is making her feature-length directorial debut after two short films with the Netflix-distributed Tallulah. Following a premiere at Sundance, the first trailer shows the struggle of the titular Tallulah (Ellen Page), a down-on-her-luck young woman who stumbles upon a nannying gig that sends her on unforgettable (or maybe very forgettable) journey. Oh, and she sorta kidnaps the baby and pretends it’s her own in order to get money from her missing boyfriend’s mother — but don’t worry, it’s inspirational when you put sad music over it.
We said in our review: “The light tone works well enough on its own, but suffers against the contrasting police investigation, a constant reminder that our lead’s new-found motherhood (also fodder for much comedy) has come at an awful price. Though this dichotomy is of clear intention by all involved, these »

Returning to the form of feature-length documentary to chronicle a subculture and the people that take pleasure in it, Brent Hodge’s third feature The Pistol Shrimps follows a recreational basketball team with a starting line-up that includes comediennes Aubrey Plaza and Molly Hawkey. The Shrimps, started as an impromptu team, inspired the league to grow into something somewhat serious — the team is even required to hold practices now. Oddly the team and the league inspire a podcast (Pistol Shrimp Radio) hosted by Matt Gourley and Mark McConville mixing alt comedy, geeky fandom and sports talk radio as the men become experts on all things Pistol Shrimps. This of course requires more energy, dedication and mental bandwidth than most men would have and, although they’re not the focus, their passion is reminiscent of the men that love My Little Pony, the subject of Hodge’s first feature A Brony Tale. »

Most noticeably, our once male-dominated sanctuary is now co-ed. The ladies bring their own flavor, drama and gossip to the shop challenging the fellas at every turn. Despite the good times and camaraderie within the shop, the surrounding community has taken a turn for the worse, forcing Calvin and our crew to come together to not only save the shop, but their neighborhood.

Screenwriter and director Lorene Scafaria has tended to mix high concepts with comedic material about critical junctures in young lives, with pictures such as “Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist,” “Whip It,” and “Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World.” But in the upcoming "The Meddler," there is no quirky adolescents, roller rink battles, or uh, apocalypses, and the result is a low-key charmer. Read More: Review: Lorene Scafaria's 'The Meddler' With Susan Sarandon Starring Susan Sarandon, Rose Byrne, J.K. Simmons, Jerrod Carmichael, Cecily Strong, Lucy Punch, Casey Wilson, Michael McKean, and Jason Ritter, the story revolves around a young woman whose life is suddenly intruded upon by her well-meaning mother, who has just moved to the West Coast, following the death of her husband. Here's the official synopsis: With a new iPhone, an apartment near the Grove, and a comfortable bank account left to »
