One of the things that continually amazes me about zombie films is that whenever it seems they’ve been completely played out, an innovative director comes along and puts a new spin on the genre. Still, there’s lots of schlock out there, and most of the time I approach a new zombie film much like I would an actual zombie: cautiously. When news about a forthcoming Cuban zombie film called Juan de los Muertos (Juan of the Dead) broke in May, my skepticism-meter was reading pretty high. Fortunately, any doubts I had were erased when I saw the awesome teaser trailers for the film. I recently spoke with director Alejandro Brugués (who was kind enough to take a break from preparing to shoot the film to exchange some emails), and it’s clear that he’s a huge zombie fan who is really happy to be making this film. Keep reading for some exclusive information about the film as well as the teaser trailers. (more…)

The Pond is an incredible new short film starring Alicia Witt (88 Minutes, Friday Night Lights) that is currently gaining steam on the film festival circuit. After watching the trailer I knew I had to email director Dan Hannon and see if he would answer a few questions for us. He just won the 2010 Directorial Discovery Grand Prize Award at the Rhode Island International Film Festival.  Luckily he not only agreed to the interview but afterwards was kind enough to send me a copy of the film! It blew me away. Honestly, everything in it is just fantastic and I sat through the credits wishing it would keep going. After the jump we’ve got the full exclusive interview, pictures from the film, as well as the trailer!

Aziz Ansari and Danny McBride are two of the most famous faces in comedy right now even if you can’t quite put names to the faces.  The two are currently working on Ruben Fleischer‘s new film 30 Minutes or Less which should end up involving a pizza or two.  While speaking with MTV on the set of the film, Danny McBride mentioned a project that he and Aziz were working on with writer Harris Wittels of The Sarah Silverman Show and Parks & Recreations fame.  The film is tentatively titled Olympic Size Asshole which is one of the best titles for a movie that I’ve heard in quite a while.  We don’t have much to report yet but what they’ve revealed of the plot is still enough to get us interested. “It’s about this Olympic athlete who comes back to his hometown and he bangs mine and Aziz’s girlfriends. So we go on this mission to destroy his Olympic life,” said Danny McBride. With Aziz and writer Matt Hubard behind the idea and Jody Hill/David Gordon Green/Danny McBride’s Rough House Pictures producing, I can definitely see this film bringing on the hilarity.

In my first post for this site I reviewed M. Night Shyamalan‘s crowning achievement, Unbreakable. In the review I mentioned how the major letdown of the film was that it could have had so much more added to it instead of the abrupt ending we got. Throughout the years M. Night has hinted that he was writing a sequel for the film, but instead of a direct sequel, we are getting what would have been Unbreakable 2 in the form of a stand alone film which will be part of his upcoming horror film series, The Night Chronicles. “I cannibalized the idea for the sequel to ‘Unbreakable’ for one of The Night Chronicles. I fleshed it out more and more, and thought, ‘This could be a standalone movie,‘” revealed Shyamalan in a recent interview with MTV’s Josh Horowitz. “I’ll just say it: the third ‘Night Chronicles’ movie is what would have been the sequel [to ‘Unbreakable’]. So now I need to come up with a new idea.

Looking at Shyamalan’s recent outings as a director, I feel safe to say that the release of an Unbreakable sequel could easily wash the bad taste out of even the most critical viewer’s mouth. Maybe with M. Night at work with The Night Chronicles scripts he will get caught up in writing and start work on a new Unbreakable 2 script, but until then we can always reminisce on the time when Shymalan was a promising up and coming director.

What are you thoughts on a possible Unbreakable 2? What would you like to see happen in an Unbreakable sequel? Does M. Night Shyamalan still have it, or did he peak long ago? Post your thoughts in the comment section below!

"Go and get a camera, point it and shoot."--Jamie Heinrich

When I created this site, one of my main goals was to create exposure for films/filmmakers, people might not have otherwise heard of.  When I watched the trailer for the new film “I Like You” I thought here is a good opportunity to do that.  Having made an independent short film myself, I know that just making a 5-minute film with no studio backing is a difficult undertaking.  These guys made a full-length feature film, without millions of dollars to spend, and the cinematography looks better than in plenty of studio films I’ve seen recently.  I decided to email Jamie Heinrich, the Director and Editor of the film, and ask him if he could answer a couple of questions for an exclusive interview and he agreed! We have the full interview, more screenshots, and a link to the trailer after the jump!
