    TIFF Clip: 'The Right Kind Of Wrong' Starring Ryan Kwanten From 'Benny & Joon' Director Jeremiah Chechik

    It’s been fifteen years since “Benny and Joon” director Jeremiah Chechik directed a feature length film. Despite the hot streak created by the Johnny Depp rom-com, Chechik fell from grace after the disastrous 1998 adaptation of the television series “The Avengers” (think less Joss Whedon and more vi...

    Leslie Bibb, Ryan Kwanten & Amy Smart Board '7500' From 'The Grudge' Director Takashi Shimizu

    Honestly, we figured “The Grudge” director Takashi Shimzu would have a hard time finding quality work after the 2006 sequel “The Grudge 2,” a film with all the trappings of a straight-to-DVD effort, which didn’t exactly capture the (minor) effectiveness or (major) box office heat of the first film. ...

    Comic-Con '11: 'Knights of Badassdom' Gets Trailer & First Look Image

    LARP Movie Ruled Hall H With A Foam SwordBeing the geekiest panel at Comic-Con's Hall H takes some work, but for our money, the honor goes to the LARP horror-comedy "Knights of Badassdom" and their Saturday nerdfest. For the uninitiated, LARP stands for "Live Action Role-Play," so picture Dungeons & Dragons with costumes and foam swords on a battlefield off a highway somewhere (you'll recall some of this from the subplot and ending of "Role Models"). Before the panel began, actual LARPers in costume led the audience in a shout of "huzzah!" and director Joe Lynch clearly was in awe of his film's Hall H presence, walking on stage and saying, "H...

    Review: Aussie Neo-Western 'Red Hill' Fails To Live Up To Its Promising Trailer

    If there was one movie this year that this writer wanted to be fantastic, it was "Red Hill." The trailer focused on the strikingly beautiful cinematography, but gave little detail on the plot. For that, it seemed fishy, but those misgivings were swiftly buried by piles and piles of awe. It basically looked like "No Country For Old Men" set in Australia, and while there was no shot in it being anywhere near as brilliant as that, it still held the possibility of being a strong film. Reading the director's statement was even more promising, as Patrick Hughes seemed passionate not only about his movie, but about movies in general. Seemingly down-...

    Ryan Kwanten To Star In Charles Manson Pic 'The Family' Directed By 'Machinist' Writer Scott Kosar

    While "The Machinist" has its fans, we're not too big on the film and other than making Christian Bale lose all kinds of weight, the attention foisted on that film is sort of unfounded. Anyway, for writer Scott Kosar, it made his mark in Hollywood and it looks like he's ready to make his debut in th...
