    Review: 'Black Rock' A Back-To-The-Wilds Slasher With Brains & Bonding To Go With The Blood

    There is, ultimately, something to be said for the pleasures of a simple, sleek and well-shot run-or-kill-or-die thriller.

And what better place could the...

    Exclusive: Lake Bell Joining Jon Hamm & Suraj Sharma In Disney's 'Million Dollar Arm'

    The trouble with being multi-talented is that you can't be in more than one place at once. And so it is with Lake Bell. The actress has been a reliable scene-stealer over the last decade or so, but she's been mostly absent from our screens of late, having spent much of the last few years prepping he...

    Lake Bell's In A World Gets Post-Sundance Pick Up

    Lake Bell’s directorial debut In A World finally got a post-Sundance pick up by Roadside Attractions and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions. This was one of our favorite movies at Sundance. It was smart, totally different (the world of voice over artists!) and totally feminist. The messag...

    15 Breakout Artists To Watch From The 2013 Sundance Film Festival

    There's still a couple days left of this year's Sundance Film Festival, but for all intents and purposes it's winding down. Most of the press have departed, pretty much every major movie has screened at least once, and many of them have been bought, or will be over the next few days.

    Sundance Review: 'In A World...' A Low-Key Charmer & Promising Directorial Debut For Lake Bell

    One of the worst things you could say about a comedy is usually that it has a wide appeal. The most interesting comedies are the ones that tend to be hyper-specific, focused on an insular world of some kind (think '70s newsrooms in “Anchorman” or '80s summer camp in “Wet Hot American Summer”), while...
