There aren’t many films that claim to “a post-apocalyptic, BMX-powered, blood-splattered love story.” Actually, we think it’s just Remains of the Day and Turbo Kid —and only the the latter is receiving its world premiere at Sundance tonight. Directed by Montreal filmmakers the RKSS Collective (AKA Anouk Whissell, François Simard, and Yoann-Karl Whissell) the movie stars Munro Chambers, Laurence Leboeuf, and genre legend Michael Ironside and, according to the official synopsis, “follows the epic journey of an orphaned outcast reluctant to be a hero in the wasteland of an alternate future.”

Visit filmmaker Corin Hardy’s website, and you’ll see a photo of the British director wearing a wetsuit while filming his horror movie The Hallow, which has its world premiere at Sundance this Sunday. Why did the first-timer sport such garb during the film’s shoot in Ireland?
“That was actually the last day,” says Hardy. “I was trying to do everything as real as possible. The locations were in the middle of nowhere. We shot in five forests. We shot in lakes. When I said to the actors, ‘Let’s go in this lake at four in the morning in the freezing cold,’ I had to get in with them to literally test out the ground myself. I kind of believe that whatever they’ve got to do, I’ve got to do as well.”
In new film The Duke of Burgundy, Sidse Babett Knudsen plays Cynthia, the very strict mistress of a large house in an unnamed European country, while Chiara D’Anna portrays her much put-upon maid, Evelyn. Or do they? Actually no, they do not. Cynthia and Evelyn, as the viewer swiftly discovers, are in fact lovers who repeat the same mistress-servant scenario over and over again, to the joy of the latter and the increasing frustration of the former.
There are few things that inspire greed more readily than gold—and there’s an abundance of both in the London-shot Black Sea (out Jan. 23), a new submarine thriller from filmmaker Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland). “I think we’re all greedy,” says the director. “Who do you know who says, ‘I have enough! I don’t need any more!’? It’s part of human nature.”
Elijah Wood’s horror movie company SpectreVision has joined forces with Drafthouse Films, Rook Films, and Timpson Films to produce The Greasy Strangler, it was announced today. The movie is directed by first-time filmmaker Jim Hosking, who previously oversaw one of the tales in the recent anthology film ABCs of Death 2.
How many people does Salma Hayek kill in the new action film Everly? A lot.
Actually, let’s rephrase that: A lot.
Reese Witherspoon had a good morning: The Wild actress got her second Best Actress Oscar nomination (she previously won for Walk the Line), and her co-star Laura Dern, who plays Witherspoon’s mother in the film, also snagged a Best Supporting Actress nod. EW talked to Witherspoon about her big day.
EW: Were you awake?
Reese Witherspoon: I was asleep.
I’m surprised you can sleep through that! This is a big morning.
I mean, no. The baby was up a lot last night. I was in a mother coma.
Clearly no one told him that it was Oscar nominations day.
Clearly no one told him! He didn’t check his email! My kids were so excited and congratulating me, which was so nice. READ FULL STORY
