'Twenty Feet From Stardom': 'The Voice's Judith Hill sheds some light on music's unsung heroes -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

twenty-feet-from-stardom.jpg

With Twenty Feet From Stardom, director Morgan Neville wanted to direct his documentary cameras on the brilliant backup vocalists who’ve toiled in anonymity while supporting music’s most popular artists, like Stevie Wonder and Mick Jagger. But in the time since the movie premiered to wide acclaim at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, one of those “no-names” has stepped into the spotlight. Judith Hill, who’s worked with Michael Jackson and Elton John, is currently one of the stars on The Voice, where she’s one of Adam Levine’s prize pupils.

Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch walk the line in 'Prince Avalanche' trailer -- VIDEO

Prince Avalanche looks like a movie for anyone who has ever wondered who paints the lines on country roads. Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch star as road workers in a desolate area of Texas that leaves them increasingly getting on each other’s nerves. In the trailer, Rudd writes to the unseen Madison about how he doesn’t miss city life and how he is pretty sure there’s something wrong with her brother (Hirsch). Writer/director David Gordon Green directed bro-comedies like Pineapple Express, The Sitter, and Your Highness, but judging from this trailer, Avalanche is going to be quieter, subtler, and more indie, like Green’s All The Real Girls and Snow Angels.

Avalanche premiered at Sundance and was quickly scooped up by Magnolia Pictures. The film also screens this week at the Tribeca Film Festival. It will be released Aug. 9.

'Shadow Dancer': Clive Owen gives his number to a terrorist in gritty Northern Ireland thriller -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

How far would you go to protect your child? Would you betray your beliefs? Your people? Your own family?

That’s the question director James Marsh examines in Shadow Dancer, which stars Andrea Riseborough (Oblivion) as a reluctant Irish terrorist facing 25 years in an English prison if she doesn’t betray her family to MI5. Clive Owen plays her British handler, who presents her with an unthinkable choice if she wants to ever see her young son again.

Owen still has a vivid memory of the Troubles, the decades-old friction between Catholic republicans and Protestant unionists in Northern Ireland that is depicted in the film during a particularly violent spike of violence in the early 1990s. “You look at pictures from that time and Belfast was like a war zone,” Owen told EW last year at Sundance, where the movie premiered. “I just thought the script was politically very interesting because all the characters in the film, to some extent, are kind of trapped in their positions. It’s not about rights and wrongs, and good guys and bad guys. … I think [my character] really believes it when he says to her, ‘We’re in this together. I’m going to be watching your back. You do this and we do it together.’ I think he genuinely believes that, but very quickly the rock is pulled from under him because he realizes she’s very quickly going to be compromised.”

Watch an exclusive clip from the taut thriller, as Owen’s agent explains the rules of the game to his new asset. She wants to know just one thing: his name. READ FULL STORY

Check out the new poster for horror anthology sequel 'V/H/S/2' -- EXCLUSIVE

It seems like only last year that the original V/H/S marauded its way into cinemas — maybe because it was. But the busy beavers behind that found footage horror anthology have already readied a sequel, the Sundance-screened V/H/S/2.

'The Way, Way Back' trailer: Sam Rockwell and Steve Carell star in Sundance summer comedy -- VIDEO

We’ve seen Steve Carell do funny. We’ve seen him play crazy. We’ve seen him do awkward. But in Sundance favorite The Way, Way Back, Carell plays mean, and he’s the one picking on the awkward guy: his girlfriend’s teenage son, Duncan (Liam James).

The Way, Way Back follows Duncan through his summer break that’s rather nightmarish whenever he’s with his mom (Toni Collette) and her boyfriend, but has bright moments whenever he’s at the local water park, where he strikes up a friendship with one of the slacker employees (Sam Rockwell).

The trailer shows off a good chunk of Way, Way Back‘s impressive cast, including Allison Janney, Maya Rudolph, Rob Corddry, and co-director/co-writer Jim Rash.

Check out the trailer, which kicks off with one of Carell’s toolish moments inspired by a traumatic moment in Rash’s real life, below: READ FULL STORY

'Wrong': Check out a scene from Quentin Dupieux's follow-up to 'Rubber' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Wrong

How do you follow an arthouse-horror movie about a tire which can make people’s heads explode with the power of its mind (or whatever it is tires have instead of a mind)? Quite easily, it seems, if you are Rubber writer-director Quentin Dupieux.

Sundance Institute to host summer film festival in Los Angeles

The good news: Sundance is holding a second film festival this year. The better news: For once, attendees can leave their fashionable parkas at home.

The Sundance Institute announced today that it will be hosting a four-day summer film festival called Next Weekend in Los Angeles this August. Next Weekend will be an extension of Sundance proper’s “Next” section, which launched in 2010 and features “stylistically adventurous films that take a bold approach to storytelling,” such as Zal Batmanglij’s sound of my voice and Mike Birbiglia’s Sleepwalk With Me.

Lake Bell's Sundance film 'In a World…' sells to Roadside Attractions and Sony

The Sundance Film Festival wrapped up nearly a month ago, but films that debuted at the prestigious film fest are still scoring distribution deals. Lake Bell’s directorial debut, (cue deep, dramatic voice) In a World…, has finalized deals with Roadside Attractions and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions, EW confirmed.

Roadside will distribute the film in the U.S., while the Sony subsidiary acquired international rights. A summer 2013 release is planned for U.S. theaters. READ FULL STORY

'Black Rock': This ain't your mom's Ya-Ya Sisterhood -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

Black Rock starts out looking like a typical chick flick, with three lifelong girlfriends played by Lake Bell, Kate Bosworth, and Katie Aselton reuniting for a roughing-it retreat in the sticks of a semi-remote Maine island. Girls weekend! Wahoo! But they’re soon forced to practice a more serious brand of bonding when they’re discovered by a group of pseudo-threatening male hunters at their campsite. “It gets all Deliverance-y,” said John Cooper, the director of the Sundance Film Festival, where the psychological thriller debuted in 2012.

Aselton, who’s best known for being one of the boys on TV’s The League (and being married to actor/filmmaker Mark Duplass, who penned the script), directed the movie. “Things go terribly wrong,” Aselton told EW at Sundance. “And it’s the worst-case scenario.”

Click below for the exclusive poster, which features a mountain silhouette that only emphasizes Paramount’s missed marketing opportunity in not acquiring the film. (LD Distribution snapped it up at Sundance for a reported $1 million.) READ FULL STORY

'Bellflower' team promises next movie will feature explosions, car chases, and a 30-person street brawl (if you help finance it)

BELLFLOWER-POSTER.jpg

One of the most memorably twisted indie films of recent times was undoubtedly 2011′s micro-budgeted Bellflower — an apocalyptically minded tale of Mad Max fandom and a love affair which goes horribly awry. The Sundance-screened movie was made by a collective of filmmakers known as Coatwolf, whose membership includes writer-director Evan Glodell and producer-composer Jonathan Keevil. Today, the Coatwolf crew announced that their next project, the Keevil-directed action movie Chuck Hank and the San Diego Twins, will feature molotov cocktails, a high-speed car chase, and “a massive bone-crushing 30 person street brawl.” The (fairly reasonable) catch? You have to help pay for it.
