    Women to Watch: Mindy Affrime Talks About Golf in the Kingdom

    Golf In The Kingdom is opening July 29th at the AMC Empire Theatre NYC in Times Square and August 6th at the Bagdad Cinema, Portland Oregon. Times Square is the busiest, most trafficked AMC theatre in the country. For a self-distributed film, this is a phenomenal coup. AMC is giving the Kingdom team one week guaranteed, extending will be based on how well they do. They are willing to take a risk and the exposure will be tremendous. The trailer should be ready in a few weeks and will start playing.Interview with Michael Murphy: PGA Tour, Sirius Radio. Mike Murphy and the gang will all be in NYC for a week; events, book signings, parties and some major press events. This is the time to get people into those seats. For example...George Stephanopoulos will be inviting the entire Greek population in NY (they are all relatives).

    First Look At Concept Art For Robert Rodriguez's Frank Frazetta Adaptation 'Fire And Ice'

    Long before Jon Favreau figured out how to effectively exploit the comic-reading crowd in San Diego, Robert Rodriguez was one of the kings of Comic-Con. The genre filmmaker was responsible for the Mexi-western "Desperado," robbers and vampires genre mashup "From Dusk 'Till Dawn" and most importantly "Sin City," his panel-for-panel adaptation of the Frank Miller comic series. That 2005 film led the way for more slavish and stylized comic adaptations like "300" and "Watchmen" and showed audiences that you could make a comic book film look just like the comic book. But after his 2007 double-feature experiment with Quentin Tarantino "Grindhouse" sunk like a stone at the box office, he's been relatively quiet. Between "Sin City" and "Grindhouse" he made the kids flick "The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D" which seemed to be a natural extension of his "Spy Kids" franchise, followed this up with another kids film "Shorts," about a magical wish-granting rock and he had a co-director credit on "Machete", one of his "Grindhouse" leftovers. The film he has planned for his big comeback is a fourth installment (and partial reboot) of his "Spy Kids" franchise. So, what happened to Robert Rodriguez?

    Jason Bateman Joins Stoner Comedy 'We're The Millers'

    Director Rawson Marshall Thurber Also Rewriting Adaptation Of Gerard Way's 'The Umbrella Academy'We love Jason Bateman. There's no denying the actor was hilariously great on the career-rebounding "Arrested Development" and while he's been cast in a plethora of films since -- "Juno," "Hancock," "The Kingdom," "State Of Play," "The Switch," "Paul," "Horrible Bosses" and the upcoming "The Change-Up" -- he's always been the bridesmaid never the bride. Always adding to a comedic or dramatic ensemble the actor (nor any studios) have been willing to roll the dice on Bateman as a bonafide leading man, but it seems that's all about change.

    Trailer Watch: Dirty Girl

    Looks way better than I thought it would be. Kind of cute. I like the title because really what is a dirty girl? A girl who doesn't act like she is expected? Is it a girl who is in touch with her sexuality? We never call guys dirty guys. It's just the girls who get stereotyped. Film opens October 7.

    Simon Pegg Starring In Dark Comedy 'A Fantastic Fear Of Everything'

    For weeks now, Simon Pegg has been teasing his Twitter followers with a secret project that he's been filming for the past couple of weeks. With the British comic having broken through with Edgar Wright, and gone on to star in Hollywood blockbusters like "Star Trek" and "Mission Impossible 3," speculation flew: was it a secret shoot for "Star Trek 2"? Had they somehow got "The World's End" ready under the radar? Of course not. But this morning, the film was finally revealed, as an intriguing-sounding British indie.
