    Zoe Saldana Will Make Directorial Debut With "Glamour" Short Film; Will Debut Online In October

    It shouldn't be news that Zoe Saldana wants to get behind the camera and direct. We've told you that a few times - most recently in May, when it was announced that she would be directing episodes of Vin Diesel's new web series with Fox, titled The Ropes - an original web series about the lives of bouncers. She also mentioned that she was in the running to direct a film in Montreal, though she was greedy with the details.

    Watch: Sam Worthington Tries On A Texan Accent In 'Texas Killing Fields' Trailer

    We initially didn't have very high expectations for "Texas Killing Fields," but when the film landed an in competition slot at the Venice Film Festival our interest was piqued. Perhaps there was more than meets the eye to what seemed a pretty rote crime thriller. Well, our initial instincts seem to be spot on.

    Abigail Breslin Is Going To Kill Her Mom For A 'Class Project'

    My how time flies. It seemed it was only yesterday that we were watching a young, sweet and bespectacled Abigail Breslin take a road trip with her oddball family in "Little Miss Sunshine." And while she has done a handful of films since -- including most notably "Zombieland" -- we're still kind of shocked that she's now fifteen years old. And clearly, she's ready to try something a bit darker and more adult.

    A Feast of Classic Films

    A successful film festival needs to have good movies, good people, and a good home. The folks behind the Plaza Classic Film Festival in El Paso, Texas have got it all. Their boast of being “The world’s largest classic film festival” is not an idle one; spread over eleven days, it features scores of films from the silent era to the 1980s, shown almost entirely in 35mm, with special guests, outdoor screenings, seminars and more. It’s insanely ambitious but I must say I was genuinely impressed. How can you not admire a festival that precedes its screening of Walt Disney’s Fantasia with the short subject Mickey’s Opera House? (Vintage cartoons and shorts dotted the entire program.)

    'Melancholia' Goes VOD On October 7th, One Month Before It Hits Theaters On November 11th

    Don't act so surprised. We pretty much figured this might happen when Magnolia picked up the film at the beginning of the year and as is usual for the indie label, one of the biggest arthouse films of the year will be available in your living room first before you can see it on the big screen. That's right, Lars Von Trier's "Melancholia" will go digital on October 7th before getting a limited release on November 11th.

    Interview with Marie Feret Star of Mozart's Sister

    15-year-old Marie Feret plays Nannerl Mozart the elder sister to Wolfgang in her father Rene's Mozart's Sister opening this week in the US. A prodigy in her own right, she was trained by her father in the same way that he would later train her brother. Nannerl composed on her own and actually helped her brother with his early compositions. But because girls were not allowed to play at court when they reached a certain age and also for a plethora of sexist issues, Nannerl had to abandon her ambition to become a successful musician. There were just too many obstacles and no one to support her. Very sad story of another woman not allowed to succeed because of her gender. These stories are strewn throughout history.
