Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired worldwide rights (excluding Canada) to Mark SawersNo Men Beyond This Point and is planning a 2016 release for the sci-fi comedy.

Peter Goldwyn of Samuel Goldwyn Films said: “Mark has a truly original voice and made a film that is both smart and funny – and is also an incredibly interesting take on gender politics. I’m excited to have the opportunity to release it and imagine we will have a lot of fun on this campaign.”

The WWE has had some success with their chosen films, especially horror. See No Evil was entertaining enough No One Lives, The Call and Oculus also showed that they had an eye for quality and weren’t afraid to take a few risks. Leprechaun: Origins seemed to have been picked up as a vehicle to bring their own Leprechaun inspired wrestler Dylan ‘Hornswoggle’ Postl to the big screen in an acting role, but to try to remake Leprechaun without the much-loved Warwick Davis? The warning signs were already there for how horror fans would feel about this one.

With a name like Leprechaun: Origins and a campaign that connected it to the original, using the term

Austin Film Festival Review: Simmons On Vinyl

Rating: 6.5/10

Writer: Cole Selix and Mark Potts

Director: Mark Potts

Cast: Cole Selix, Mark Potts, Mary Black, Brand Rackley, Lindsey Newell

It’s an indie film tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme. Boy pines for girl who’s way out of his league and thus unleashes a series of events in which boy pursues girl, making a complete jackass of himself before realizing he’s done this a million times before. While I’m tempted to say this story template started back with Clerks, I know there must be many more examples of this type of plot, dating back to the silent film era. The thing is, with the right characters and some good gags, it’s a solid go-to plot to have. While Mark PottsSimmons On Vinyl feels like a movie I’ve seen a hundred times before at dozens of film festivals, it

Steve Martin on Banjo at the Rubin: "My Hit Single 'King Tut' Was Not a Fluke"

He may have lost to Kris Allen on American Idol, but Steve Martin and his banjo album "The Crow" landed on the pop charts this week, his first time back there since 1981's Ep "The Steve Martin Brothers." Yet if we were guessing that his new Billboard status might have had something to do with his brand name or the bluegrass firepower he brings with him on his new record - Mary Black, Vince Gill, Tim O'Brien, Dolly Parton along with banjo masters Earl Scruggs, Pete Wernick and Tony Trischka - the joke is, well, on us. That was the verdict last night at the Rubin Museum of Art, after the award winning comedian-actor-playwright-novelist-memoirist rounded out an intimate two-night residency with a mesmerizing display of banjo pickin', songwritin', a bit of singing (his voice doesn't quite warrant the apostrophe) and,...
