    Meet the 2011 ND/NF Filmmakers: "Margin Call" Director JC Chandor

    As the world discovered in 2008, the masters of the financial universe sit in anonymous offices in generic towers in lower Manhattan, staring at numbers that don’t add up. JC Chandor’s timely and terrifying dramatic exposé tackles twenty-four hours on an investment bank trading floor; a day that brings layer upon layer of human and professional malfeasance that jeopardizes the entire fabric of the banking system. This is a system sustained and sequestered by corporate security guards, convoluted mathematic formulas, and, of course, greed. An all-star ensemble cast—led by Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Zachary Quinto, Demi Moore, Stanley Tucci an...

    Meet the 2011 ND/NF Filmmakers: "Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure" Director Matthew Bate

    In 1987 two dudes from the Midwest, Eddie Lee Sausage and Mitchell D, landed in San Francisco and rented a cheap apartment. They soon learned that they shared a paper-thin wall with Peter (Haskett), a gay man, and Raymond (Huffman), a homophobe, who drank and verbally abused each other—all night, ev...

    Amanda Seyfried Auditioned For A Role In 'Superman' But Didn't Get The Job

    Lost Out On Lead Role In 'Sucker Punch' Due To Clash With 'Big Love' ScheduleThink back to the heady days of 2004, when you first saw Tina Fey's minor classic of the teen movie genre, "Mean Girls." You, like the rest of us, probably thought that the biggest star to graduate from that film would be its lead, Lindsay Lohan, who gave an endearing, goofy performance that suggested a long career was ahead of her. Instead, a whole bunch of drugs intervened, and Lohan is basically now unemployable, leaving her co-stars to lap her in the stardom stakes. Well, not Lacey Chabert so much, but both Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried have become some of t...

Not that Moore's resting on her laurels; she's averaged three films a year for the last decade, and she's got the Steve Carell/Ryan Gosling comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love" on the way later this year, along with the Robert De Niro drama "Another Bulls...
