Ask the stars of The Hangover Part II how the sequel differs from the original smash comedy, and everyone seems to agree: This go-around is much, much darker. How dark? “We do things in this movie that no mom should see her child subjected to,” said Zach Galifianakis, expressing amazement that co-star Ed Helms had brought his mother to yesterday’s Hollywood premiere at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. “It is so bad in parts that I told my mom she is not allowed to see it.

The new James Gunn movie Super, a deeply weird, oddly endearing story of a mild-mannered man compelled to fight crime after his wife walks out on him, enjoyed a raucous premiere at SXSW. “Shut up, crime!” Rainn Wilson’s Crimson Bolt hollers at the world.

The day after the premiere, EW was invited to tag along as Wilson donned his Crimson Bolt suit once more to kick some unsuspecting criminal ass in downtown Austin.

Joel Coen, fresh off of putting some very last-minute touches on True Grit, made a surprise appearance at a screening of Sofia Coppola’s new film Somewhere, moderating a Q&A with her following the movie. The film stars Stephen Dorff as a hard-living actor who unexpectedly finds himself with his 11-year-old daughter when her mother leaves her in his care. The quietly observed drama took home the top prize at the Venice Film Festival in September.
Coen, who began by professing his admiration of Coppola’s body of work, kick-started the discussion with a question he said he gets asked a lot: “When you were little, did you make movies with your brothers?” Coppola’s brother, Roman, is actually a producer on the film, and her father, film giant and oenophile Francis Ford Coppola, is an executive producer. The Lost in Translation director drew a big laugh when talking about the role her father plays in her own filmmaking saying, “I feel like he’s sort of a… well, I don’t want to say ‘godfather.’ But I can go to him for questions and advice along the way.” READ FULL STORY »
