On Monday, March 10, a forty-year-old terror will return to Austin, Tx., when a newly restored version of horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is screened at the SXSW Festival ahead of the movie’s theatrical rerelease this summer. “It’s great on the big screen,” says filmmaker Tobe Hooper, who cowrote and directed the infamous 1974 film in the countryside outside of Austin, and also worked on the restoration. “It’s in 7.1 sound that completely wraps around you and in 4K [resolution]. The film works as well, if not better, than it originally did.”

There’s more chance of a snowball surviving a two-week vacation in Hell than the movie Zombeavers ever scoring a best film Oscar nomination. But that hasn’t stopped the folks behind the forthcoming horror-comedy about — you got it! — zombified beavers releasing “For your consideration” Oscar parody posters which riff on Gravity, Her, and American Hustle.
You can check out both the posters and the Zombeavers trailer below. READ FULL STORY

'Joe' star Nicolas Cage 'could handle a venomous cottonmouth snake without protection' -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER
Nicolas Cage is a force; you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who would deny that. But the prolific actor has been toeing the line of self-parody in the past few decades with his larger-than-life characters. In the Southern gothic Joe, director David Gordon Green gave Cage the opportunity to lose himself in a serious performance again as an impetuous, selfish ex-con who surprises himself when he becomes protective of a hard-luck kid he hires for lumber work, played by Mud‘s Tye Sheridan.
It was a somewhat unconventional choice, but, it seems to have been an inspired one as well. Cage got raves for his performance after the film premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
Green always knew he would be perfect for Joe Ransom. “He had tremendous masculinity. He’s just in incredible shape and intimidating in stature. He also has great dramatic range as an actor. He can be in Con-Air and he can be in Leaving Las Vegas. And just for me, personally, and the manner in which I like to work…he’s a funny guy,” Green told EW. ”I like to have a good time when I’m making movies, and he seemed like a guy who would agree.”
So he invited Cage to Austin, where they drove around and talked for a few days about the role. Cage even helped Green scout locations for Prince Avalanche, which Green was about to begin production on at the time. Cage, Green said, “was so eager to reinvent himself. It felt like a great opportunity to me.” READ FULL STORY
Kodi Smit-McPhee hopes to create a 'new nostalgia' in 'A Birder's Guide to Everything' -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER
At only 17, Kodi Smit-McPhee is probably best known for starring in somewhat macabre projects — from Let Me In to The Road, his precocious darkness and intense gaze seem to always be on display. Even ParaNorman‘s Norman Babcock was a bit of an outcast. Even though A Birder’s Guide to Everything isn’t exactly devoid of difficult emotional truths (and OK, OK, a gawky high school kid obsessed with birding might still fit into “charmingly misunderstood outcast” territory), Smit-McPhee was thrilled to finally get to work with actors his own age.
“I was into the nostalgia of having a group again — a kid group like Goonies, Stand by Me, going on an adventure,” said Smit-McPhee. He’d never seen the River Phoenix coming-of-age pic till his co-star Alex Wolff introduced him to it during filming. Viewings quickly became an on-set ritual. “We used to go to each other’s rooms and watch the movie all the time. It was really fun,” he said.

The third installment of the Hunger Games film franchise has an utterly unwieldy title (what hast thou wrought, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1?) — and, as of today, a cool new poster that marries the book’s memorable cover image with a healthy dose of flames. It’s also reminiscent of Catching Fire‘s first “motion poster,” as well as a similar image released way back in July 2011 to promote the first Hunger Games movie
In other words: The campaign begins as it always begins… but if Mockingjay the novel is any indication, the film’s advertisements may start treading new ground as its release date draws closer. (At the very least, Capitol Couture propaganda wouldn’t make sense for these last two movies — right?)
Check it out below — and may the odds be ever in your favor:
The latest poster for French director Guillaume Canet’s upcoming crime thriller Blood Ties plays up the family angle with a scrapbook-style layout featuring cast members Clive Owen, Zoe Saldana, Mila Kunis, Marion Cotillard, James Caan, and Billy Crudup.
Set in 1970s New York, Blood Ties follows 50-year-old Chris (Clive Owen) as he attempts to put his life back together after being released from prison, where he was serving time following a gangland murder. Waiting outside the prison gates for him is his younger brother, Frank (Billy Crudup), a cop with a bright future who’s hoping his brother has changed his ways. Despite setting Frank up with a job and a roof over his head, and reconnecting him with his children and ex-wife (Marion Cotillard), Chris just can’t seem to shake the life of crime he had before. Upon the discovery of Chris’ relapse into crime, Frank banishes his brother from his life only to find that despite not wanting anything to do with Chris, he can’t escape their joint destiny.
Blood Ties, which premiered at Cannes last year, hits theaters and VOD on March 21.
The next film from the makers of last year’s home invasion horror-comedy You’re Next? That would be action-thriller The Guest, which stars Dan Stevens from Downton Abbey. “It’s about this family who is grieving over the loss of their brother and son in a military conflict,” says You’re Next director Adam Wingard, who made The Guest in cahoots with his regular screenwriter Simon Barrett. “One day this guy shows up and claims to have been friends with him. He ends up integrating himself into the family and then we slowly learn more and more about this guy and who he really is. It’s got a sense of humor similar to You’re Next but then it takes an action-twist.”
We’re used to seeing veteran actor and director John Turturro as all sorts of characters – from a playwright in Barton Fink to Agent Simmons in the Transformers films to the iconic Jesus Quintana in The Big Lebowski. But in his upcoming film, Fading Gigolo, which he wrote, directed, and stars in, Turturro assumes the oldest profession – alongside his unlikely pimp, played by Woody Allen.
Allen plays a bookstore owner and Turturro his younger florist neighbor. After a chance conversation with Allen’s dermatologist, played by Sharon Stone, Turturro is roped into assisting with her “plumbing” needs and his new career takes off from there. His relationships span from the wealthy women of New York to a quiet, repressed Hasidic Jewish woman from Brooklyn, played by Vanessa Paradis.
