Video Interview: Director Michael Dowse Discusses 'What If' & 'Goon'

"It's the essence of flirting." So how do you refresh and revitalize the romantic comedy genre? That's what I was hoping to find out from Canadian director Michael Dowse, the man behind the excellent film What If. I first saw this film at last year's Tiff 2013, and loved it, ranking it as one of my 5 favorite films of that festival. It was known as The F Word back then (and still is in Canada) but was retitled to What If for its Us release, which is something I had to ask him about. What If stars Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan as a young couple perfect for each other–their chemistry was a topic, too. View the full video interview below. Michael Dowse is also the director of the films Fubar, Fubar: Balls to the Wall, It's All Gone Pete Tong and Goon with Seann William Scott. If you've seen any of those films,

'Neighbors' Director Eyed for Marvel's 'Ant-Man'

'Neighbors' Director Eyed for Marvel's 'Ant-Man'
Marvel is still trying to find a replacement for Edgar Wright on their Phase Three adventure Ant-Man, which isn't going well so far. After Anchorman director Adam McKay passed on the project this past weekend, We're the Millers director Rawson Marshall Thurber was said to be a lock for the position. That changed this morning with two conflicting reports, one that said he wasn't interested in signing on, and another that claimed he'd never even been approached. Now, Marvel is reportedly eyeing two more directors firmly embedded in the world of comedy.

Most familiar to fans will be Nick Stoller, who hails from the Judd Apatow camp. He recently scored with the box office hit Neighbors starring Zac Efron and Seth Rogen. He's also know for Get Him to the Greek and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The later of which he worked alongside Ant-Man lead Paul Rudd on, with the two already having a strong rapport.

Trailer Trash

After 14 years reporting from the red carpet, our film diarist bids farewell with a selection of glilttering memories…

Best festival

Trash was born at Cannes in 1999, when the idea struck me that the best way to cover this polymorphously perverse festival was through a diary. So it's probably in that environment that my column has thrived most. It coincided with the rise of the "festival circuit", and I was fortunate to have the willing co-operation of the Observer and the festivals themselves in getting to cover so many of them.

I still recall the jolt of a morning vodka with Alan Parker in Moscow where, because his Pink Floyd film The Wall was the most famous bootleg of the Soviet era, he is some kind of deity. Marrakech is a wonderful setting for a film festival and I shall cherish an afternoon with Martin Scorsese there, even though he spilt

Goon shows serious muscle at Canadian box office

  • Cineplex
Canadians came out swinging at the box office this weekend, showing some serious love for the brawling hockey comedy Goon, starring Seann William Scott as the titular elbow-throwing enforcer in the R-rated flick co-starring, written and produced by homegrown talent Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg (Seth Rogen's bestie and go-to writing partner), based on the book "Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey."

The Alliance Films release beat out Hollywood competition in the form of Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston comedy Wanderlust, the Amanda Seyfried mystery Gone and Navy Seals actioner Act of Valor to score the number one spot over the weekend to the tune of $1.2 million, a rare boon for a Canadian movie.

Goon follows Doug, a bouncer who stumbles his way onto the ice when it becomes clear his size and force would make him a great enforcer. Directed by Michael Dowse (Fubar,

First Look At Agyness Deyn & Richard Coyle In Brit Remake Of Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Pusher'

Are you a fan of "Drive"? Well, if you are, and you haven't yet tracked down Nicolas Winding Refn's crackling debut "Pusher" (or its two sequels), then you probably should. At least before the remake hits. That's right, in case you forgot, Vertigo Films is doing an English language version of the movie, which is technically the second remake of the film following a Hindi iteration that was made a while ago. This time around the cast is led by model-turned-actress Agyness Deyn (she was Aphrodite in "Clash Of The Titans"), Richard Coyle ("Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time"), Bronson Webb ("Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides") and Paul Kaye ("It's All Gone Pete Tong") the story is pretty much a carbon copy of the first, except this time set in London. And lest you think this is some kind of unholy retread, Refn is actually one

Trainspotting brings rave to the cinema

1996: Number 30 in our series of the 50 key events in the history of dance music

Being live, collective and usually drug-enhanced, the "rave" experience has never been easy to replicate on film. But wherever there's a ramshackle youth movement, there's a clueless cash-in and, as with 60s psychedelia, Hollywood got it entertainingly wrong more often than it got it right (two words: Matrix Reloaded). Two exceptions were Doug Liman's Go (featuring Katie Holmes, Sarah Polley and Scott Wolf), which had fun with the La warehouse party scene, and Blade, whose great bloody opening (to the Pump Panel Reconstruction Mix of New Order's Confusion, trackspotters) was the last word in clubbing exclusivity. For once, the Brits knew best.

Danny Boyle's Trainspotting was ostensibly the first rave generation film, in attitude at least, though apart from Underworld's Born Slippy, the soundtrack was pretty rock-based. Instead, prime contender for

Casting Bits: Katrina Bowden in ‘Piranha 3Dd;’ ‘Pusher’ Remake Actors Announced

Casting Bits: Katrina Bowden in ‘Piranha 3Dd;’ ‘Pusher’ Remake Actors Announced
Piranha 3Dd has one more potential victim: Katrina Bowden, who plays the equally tiny, hot and self-absorbed assistant Cerie on 30 Rock, is now part of the cast. I don't think I need to run down all the obvious potential perks of this casting for fans of her character on that show. I mean, we don't need to get all lascivious here. But yes, she'll be better to look at than David Koechner. The film also features Gary Busey, Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, Chris Zylka, Meagan Tandy, Paul James Jordan, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Hector Jimenez, Adrian Martinez, and Clu Gulager, and is shooting now in North Carolina. Still waiting to hear about the porn starlets that will be cast; Piranha has a reputation to maintain, after all. After the break, the rather inexplicable remake of Nicolas Winding Refn's great crime movie Pusher gets a remake cast, and an endorsement from Mr Refn.
