'Horns' trailer: Speak of the devil and Daniel Radcliffe doth appear

Losing your girlfriend to murder is hard enough. Losing your girlfriend to murder, being accused of that murder, and then sprouting devil-like horns out of nowhere? Probably the worst.

This is what happens to Daniel Radcliffe’s character Ig in Horns, a film based on a book of the same name by author Joe Hill about a man who grows horns only to find that they give him great power. Because apparently, people start confessing their every secret to you once you start looking like the devil.

Toronto: Daniel Radcliffe is damned good at 'Horns' premiere

After one glimpse, the title to Daniel Radcliffe’s newest movie requires no further explanation. But there’s so much more to unwrap in Horns, Alexandre Aja’s subversely funny adaptation of Joe Hill’s macabre mystery novel. Yes, Harry Potter grows horns after his angelic girlfriend (Juno Temple) is brutally murdered and he’s the only suspect. In defense of the town’s quick rush to judgment, there are also scenes where a singed Radcliffe wields a pitchfork and communes with menacing snakes. (Once a parseltongue, always a parseltongue.) Also, he drives a flaming-orange Gremlin, so can you really blame the simple townsfolk for thinking he’s tight with Satan?

Horns, which premiered last night at the Toronto Film Festival, is something totally different and unexpected. Radcliffe plays Ig Perrish, who finds that those grotesque horns suddenly growing out of his head have one useful side effect. Rather than being frightened or disgusted, other people are oddly put at ease by the sight of them and compulsively express their deepest and darkest secrets and desires to Ig. There’s the local floozy who really wants to eat all the donuts after sex, the buddy-cops who want to take their relationship to the next level, and Ig’s mother, who just wants him to disappear because his plight makes her so darn sad. “I bring out the worst in people,” Ig laments. But once he begins to understand the blessing that accompanies his curse, he sets out to use his power to find the real killer.


'Afternoon Delight' trailer: Juno Temple is a stripper/nanny with a heart of gold -- VIDEO

When your marriage hits a lull, mix it up a little bit! If you happen to be Rachel (Kathryn Hahn), mixing it up hinges on your decision to invite a stripper to be your live-in nanny.

Rachel doesn’t fit into her life, with her social-media-obsessed housewife friends and a distant husband, and decides to take matters into her own hands by learning to get in touch with her sexuality under the keen tutelage of a 19-year-old “sex worker.”

Afternoon Delight also stars Josh Radnor as the uninterested husband, Jane Lynch as a dry, to-the-point therapist and Juno Temple as the stripper/nanny.

The film, which won the directing award and was nominated for the Grand Jury award when it premiered this year at the Sundance Film Festival, goes wide later this year. Check out the trailer here:

'Magic Magic' trailer: Michael Cera is all kinds of creepy

Michael Cera is done being Mr. I’m-so-awkward-and-nerdy-that-I’m-cute guy. This Friday, he plays a cocaine-loving version of himself in This Is The End, and come Aug. 6, you can watch him play the ultimate creep when Magic Magic, which already hit the festival circuit, hits DVD.

The trailer for Magic Magic follows a young woman, played by Juno Temple, who decides to vacation in a small town in Chile. What follows is a lack of cell phone reception, hypnotism, and the real kicker, sadism. As the trailer puts it,”When her vacation began she had no idea there was no way out. Now some secrets were never meant to be revealed.”

Sundance 2013: Juno Temple holds on by a thread in 'Magic Magic' -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER


In Magic Magic, Juno Temple and Emily Browning play best friends whose rendezvous in the Chilean countryside with some boys takes a turn for the worse when Temple’s Alicia is plagued by insomnia. Chilean writer-director Sebastián Silva has teased that it’s a disturbing psychological thriller that is meant to confuse the audience, so it’s a perfect movie for the Park City at Midnight slate at the Sundance Film, Festival, which begins today.

For Temple, who has three films at this year’s festival, playing unbalanced, unpredictable women is becoming something of a hobby. Her father, Julien, is an accomplished director who filmed the Sex Pistols, and some of that wild punk DNA seemingly was passed on to Juno. She got her first big role in Notes on a Scandal, playing Cate Blanchett’s rebellious daughter, and she’s never flinched from the unflinching, starring in films like last year’s NC-17 rated Killer Joe, opposite Matthew McConaughey. Her choices are bold and she never seems to take the same role twice. Magic Magic promises to keep both of those trends going.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You co-star with Michael Cera in Magic Magic, but it doesn’t seem like the sequel to Year One I was expecting.
JUNO TEMPLE: No, we actually had a lot of fun with that. We were like, “Ummmm, no, definitely not a sequel to Year One.” READ FULL STORY

Sundance 2013: Juno Temple sets the ground-rules in 'Afternoon Delight' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

For parents of young children, it can be so hard to find good help these days. Take Josh Radnor and Kathryn Hahn in the Sundance entry Afternoon Delight, for example. They play a successful, open-minded L.A. couple, but they tempt fate when they decide to hire a stripper (Juno Temple) named McKenna to be their nanny. Well, stripper is a harsh term. Prostitute? That’s hardly better. Help us out here, McKenna. “Full-service sex worker,” she says in an exclusive video clip below. That about covers it.

“It’s not like McKenna is a tragedy,” says Temple, who researched the role the only way one can, by befriending a real-life professional from that world. “My character is not a woman who’s torn apart by her situation; she enjoys what she’s doing.”

Written and directed by Jill Soloway (The United States of Tara) and co-starring Jane Lynch and Annie Mumolo (Bridesmaids), Afternoon Delight has fun with some serious sexy scenarios. “It’s such a movie about women — different stages of women — with a younger girl and a slightly older women admiring things about each other and learning from each other,” says Temple. “But also ultimately kind of destroying each other.”

Click below for an exclusive clip from the film and then meet Soloway in a special Sundance video. READ FULL STORY
