Seven years is a long time to wait between a film’s festival premiere and its release, but better late than never I guess. Jonathan Levine is best known for star-studded films like 50/50 and Warm Bodies, but his debut feature, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, has actually become his most recent. It was picked up by the Weinsteins after a successful premiere at Tiff in 2006… and then disappeared. Well, it disappeared from U.S. shores but found minor success overseas and a cult status here in the States. Unless you saw it at a festival appearance (or were savvy enough to import a copy from the UK), 2013 was the first real chance to see Mandy and figure out why all the boys love her. Seven years of hype and expectations are a lot to meet, but the movie remains an attractive and fun little retro slasher that has a surprising amount to say about teenagers, bullying »

What other hidden gems can we discover early in the first Sundance 2014 announcement? How about a comedy where Aubrey Plaza (of Mystery Team, Funny People, Safety Not Guaranteed, "Parks & Rec") plays Dane DeHaan's girlfriend Beth, who he keeps as his girlfriend after she becomes a zombie. It's titled Life After Beth (nice) and does indeed star Plaza as a zombie. The ensemble cast includes more excellent names like John C. Reilly, Paul Reiser, Anna Kendrick, Alia Shawkat and Molly Shannon. Hopefully not too similar to Warm Bodies, this does sound interesting, we'll catch it at Sundance in January. First look below. Here's the first three photos from Jeff Baena's Life After Beth (click for HQ), arriving direct from Sundance: Here's the fun synopsis from Sundance: Zach is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth. When she mysteriously returns, he gets a second chance at love. Soon »

It is no secret that, while the Academy rarely misses an opportunity to reward a young actress’ breakout, it likes to keep the boys running a while longer – in fact, over the past twelve years, female acting nominees have been on average a full eight years younger than their male counterparts. Little Tye Sheridan, then, has virtually no chance of catching voters’ eyes, especially in a field as crowded as this year’s Best Actor category, and with a film that peaked in buzz back in May.
But boy, does he deserve a chance. Previously only seen as The Tree of Life’s youngest, quietest sibling, the seventeen year old gives in Mud a performance of the highest class, one played with evident maturity that nevertheless remains candid and childlike »

Nashville (Criterion Collection) I still need to dig through the special features on Criterion's new release of Robert Altman's Nashville, but I have already watched the film and this new 2K restoration looks great, just as you would expect it to. Included is a 2000 audio commentary featuring Altman and most notably a newly produced, 71-minute making of documentary featuring interviews with the likes of Ronee Blakley, Keith Carradine, Michael Murphy, Allan Nicholls, Lily Tomlin, screenwriter Joan Tewkesbury, assistant director Alan Rudolph and Altman's widow, Kathryn Reed Altman. Of course, that's not all, but suffice to say it's a release that has fans of the film taken care of.
The Wolverine I've seen a lot of people on Twitter talking about how the extended edition of The Wolverine is incredibly bloody. What I haven't seen anyone saying is that actually makes it any better, because this was not a good movie. »

In this series Team Experience sounds off (individually) on their favorite fringe Oscar contenders. Here's Tim Brayton asking you to consider "In a World..." The Spirit Awards did, nominating it in this very category...
What’s a talented comic actress with no good parts coming her way supposed to do, anyway? If you answered, “write herself a damn starring role, already”, then you’re on the same page as Lake Bell, the immensely likable and talented star of the TV series Childrens Hospital, making her feature debut as writer, producer, and director with In a World… Though for all her hypens, it’s as screenwriter that Bell most impresses with this project, a hugely ambitious affair all around despite how utterly low-key and normal it all feels.
There are three things happening here all at once, and the script pays equal attention to all of them. First, In a World… »

[Editor's Note: The Fyc series brings together all Film Experience contributors to highlight our favorite fringe Oscar contenders. Here's Glenn Dunks on Xavier Dolan's latest]
Anybody who knows me knows I have been trumpeting Xavier Dolan’s trans epic Laurence Anyways since I saw it back in January. I experienced a lot of emotions during this gloriously decadent and painfully intimate affair on the big screen (as one should expect from a three-hour movie). Yet what caught me most off guard was the romanticism with which it painted images through costume. Oh sure, Dolan’s previous films had a way with the fashions – the suburban chic duds of I Killed My Mother and the hipster vintage of Heartbeats - but never had their colours felt so radical, their intent so cutting, their stories so vivid.
So many of my lasting memories of Laurence Anyways rotate around the clothes. In fact, the first thing we see of our lead character are the clothes. There’s the symbolic baby blue business attire with hot pink accentuated shoulders in the opening scene. »

USA Network's drama pilot Rush has found its leading man. EastEnders alum Tom Ellis has been tapped to play the title role in the project from Warm Bodies writer-director Jonathan Levine, with Reaper's Rick Gonzalez also joining the cast, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Rush, from Fox 21, is a fast-paced Hollywood drama that centers on Dr. William Rush (Ellis), a brilliant physician whose "practice" is acting as a highly paid on-call doctor for those in medical need. Because of who they are, what they've done or what they're hiding, his patients can't seek traditional treatment. He's

Zombies are a great go-to horror villain. They can be cheap to create – simply by sticking some grey face-paint and fake blood on a bunch of willing extras – and they come in “shambling,” “fast” and “superfast” modes. Being already dead, they’re also notoriously difficult to kill without resorting to some gloriously gory head-smashing fun, and there’s no need to even write dialogue for them other than groans and moans.
Audiences are also very enamored with zombies, whether they’re the lovable-but-misunderstood characters of rom-zom-com Warm Bodies or the staple of The Walking Dead, which has found success in the world of comic books, television and video games, ...

Max Nichols, the son of Mike Nichols, shot “Two Night Stand” in his feature debut a year ago from Mark Hammer’s script. The film was lensed in 19 days in Brooklyn and centered on a couple going through a regrettable one-night stand and waking up trapped together in a tiny apartment in a New York City blizzard.
“We shot it a year ago during Hurricane Sandy, which really played into the movie,” Flynn said recently. “It was a Black List script and »

"Mad Max: Fury Road" is revving up for release - just not for another 18 months. Warner Bros. has slated the George Miller reboot for May 15, 2015, a full 30 years after the release of "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome," the last entry in the dystopian action series. Tom Hardy steps into the role originated by Mel Gibson in the Miller-directed "interquel" (the plot is said to take place between the events of the first and second films) alongside Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult ("Warm Bodies") and Zoe Kravitz ("X-Men: First Class"). Gibson is set to make a cameo in the film, »

Voiceover coach Lake Bell gets her chance behind the mic in In a World…
The talented Ms. Bell stars as Carol (Bell), an underachieving voice coach living in the shadow of her egotistical father Sam (Fred Melamed, A Serious Man), the undisputed king of the voice-over industry. When Sam kicks her out, Carol lands her first voice-over job with the help of charming sound engineer Louis (Demetri Martin, Taking Woodstock). As romantic sparks begin to fly, Carol finds herself facing a momentous decision when continued job offers put her in head to head competition with her dad, as well as his arrogant protégé (Ken Marino, Wanderlust).
Pop culture has been in the clutches of the cold dead fingers of zombies for the last few years. The shambling hordes have taken over almost every medium. Weve had movies like World War Z and Warm Bodies TV shows like The Walking Dead comic books like DCs Blackest Night crossover Marvel Zombies and the eponymous series that became adapted into the TV show. Video Games have had a longrunning love affair with zombies as most horror games like Dead Rising Resident Evil Silent Hill and Doom contain zombies in one form or another. And these are just the more popular examples. Weve been flooded with zombierelated material and merchandise. So what are the reasons behind this fixation with The Walking Dead »
This might not be the best time for a Southern California heat wave. As temperatures reached past the 90 degree mark Wednesday in Los Angeles, a very pregnant Teresa Palmer tried her best to stay cool in the sun. Wearing rolled up sweats and a gray T-shirt, Palmer kept things super cool and casual when she stepped outside her Los Feliz home to meet the cable man. In addition to her ultra-comfy look, the glowing mom-to-be opted to go au natural on the hot sunny day. Palmer's decision to show off her baby bump so publicly shouldn't be a surprise to loyal fans. Last month, the Warm Bodies star posed in her underwear for a tasteful Instagram shot. Plus, when Palmer and her fiancé »
Update: Check out the first trailer for Divergent below, then stick around for our primer on the Ya book series and why we think it may be the next Hunger Games. Note: The following primer first ran back in September of 2012 before any casting was announced. With Ender’s Game, The Mortal Instruments, Warm Bodies, Incarceron, The Night Circus, Switched and so many more on the way, which upcoming adaptation really has the chance of replacing The Twilight Saga and following in The Hunger Games’ footsteps? While all have pros, cons and all the potential in the world until we see the full feature, I find that it’s Veronica Roth’s Divergent that has the best shot at being the next big, successful franchise. Summit’s had the...

Today we get our first look at Simon Pegg, complete with a moustache, in the upcoming Australian film Kill Me Three Times. Directed by Kriv Stenders (Red Dog) and written by first time screenwriter Kevin McFarlan, the cast for this one features a nice mix of old and new faces such as Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Sullivan Stapleton (the upcoming 300: Rise of an Empire), Bryan Brown (F/X), Alice Braga (Elysium), Callan Mulvey (Zero Dark Thirty) and Luke Hemsworth (brother of Chris & Liam).
Kill Me Three Times is being billed as a Rashomon-esque tale of an assassin (Pegg) hired by a rich man (Mulvey) to kill his wife (Braga). Also involved are a gambling addict (Stapleton) caught in a life insurance scam with a local girl (Palmer), a corrupt cop (Brown) and a surfer (Hemsworth) trying to protect the Braga’s character from the assassin.
It sounds like a »
