SXSW: Fest opens with world premiere of Jon Favreau's 'Chef'

The SXSW Film Festival kicked off last night in Austin with the world premiere of Jon Favreau’s Chef, an easygoing charmer about a man rekindling his bonds with both his craft and young son. The movie, which Favreau wrote, directed, and stars in, marked what was clearly a personally reinvigorating return to his indie roots. Inspired by foodie gems like Eat, Drink, Man, Woman, Big Night, and Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential, Favreau has made a shaggy dog story about a creatively frustrated chef who opens a food truck after losing his restaurant job. He hits the road with his sous chef (John Leguizamo, at his grooviest) and his 11-year-old son (charming newcomer Emjay Anthony), making beautifully-filmed pit stops in foodie meccas New Orleans and Austin. (And did the Austin audience ever appreciate the hometown doting.) Sofia Vergara plays Favreau’s ambivalent ex, and there are cameos from friends-in-high-places Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, and Dustin Hoffman.

Favreau was joined on stage by Leguizamo, Anthony, and Oliver Platt (who plays a food blogger whose harsh review at the beginning of the story sends the chef into a tailspin) after the screening for a Q&A. When asked about the theatrical release of the film (it opens on May 9), Favreau sounded relaxed about its box office chances. “It’s going to be swimming in those same shark-infested waters as Iron Man did…and it’s not Iron Man.”

'Machete Kills' red-band trailer: 'When the sh** hits the fan, he's the blade' -- VIDEO

“Men fear him. Ladies love him.” His name is Machete.

In the new red-band trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s action sequel Machete Kills, it’s Charlie Sheen who’s calling the killing machine for help taking down a “mad man south of the border.” You might recognize said mad man as Mel Gibson, who plans to use his “army of super soldiers” and a missile to cause some serious damage. As he puts it, “I am a genuine, high-caliber f—er-people-upper.”

What ensues involves explosions, decapitations, intestines being pulled out, explosions, machine guns, Sofia Vergara pelvic thrusting her way to victory, and Lady Gaga getting her hands dirty. Did we mention explosions?

Watch the new red-band trailer for Machete Kills below:

Meet the duo in the clip below: READ FULL STORY

Casting Net: Sofia Vergara, Reese Witherspoon to star in 'Don't Mess With Texas'; Plus Christoph Waltz

• Sofia Vergara (Modern Family) and Reese Witherspoon (Sweet Home Alabama) will show off their comedy chops together in Don’t Mess With Texas, a project Universal just won in a fierce bidding battle among studios.

Don’t Mess With Texas will follow a cop and a prisoner who are on the run in Texas from crooked cops. [Deadline] READ FULL STORY

'Machete Kills' trailer: Introducing President Charlie Sheen -- VIDEO

If you thought Danny Trejo’s Machete wouldn’t be back for more bloodshed at the end of Robert Rodriguez’ Machete, then you’ve clearly never seen Machete. Example No. 1: The former Federale returns in Machete Kills, freed from a rope noose at the request of the President of the United States of America to kill. Other stuff, too. (Tacos, occasionally.) Michelle Rodriguez lost an eye? With Demián Bichir, Lady Gaga, and Carlos Estevez — yes, Charlie Sheen — with a big gun and a fancy new title: President.

• Sofia Vergara is in talks to star alongside Jason Statham in a remake of the 1986 Burt Reynolds film Heat — not to be confused with Michael Mann’s 1995 film Heat, or 1972′s Sunset Boulevard parody Heat, or even this summer’s Melissa McCarthy comedy. Of course that’s called The Heat. Simon West (Con Air, The Expendables 2) will direct the project which tells the story of a bodyguard, and former gambler, who helps a friend after she is attacked by the mob. William Goldman, who wrote the novel, penned the original script and the update. [Variety]

New 'Three Stooges' trailer: What a bunch of boobs

How does one go about re-introducing The Three Stooges to a new generation? If you’re Peter and Bobby Farrelly, the proudly immature siblings behind Stooge-influenced films like Dumb & Dumber, you take everything good and pure about the Brothers Stupidoff’s schtick and mix in the occasional Sofia Vergara cleavage shot.
