    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. The sort of film where the heroes are trapped in the middle of nowhere and find themselves threatened by hostile locals, and must then strike back to survive. That's what "Black...

    Interview: Lake Bell On Her Love Of Movie Trailers & Her Directorial Debut 'In A World...'

    Sundance London was something of a homecoming for actress/writer/director/producer Lake Bell. Though born in New York, Bell began her career studying acting at London's Rose Bruford College, a stone's throw away from the O2 complex where the festival was taking place. 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...

    Sundance 2013: Lake Bell Wants to Vanquish "Sexy Baby Talk" Via Her Directorial Debut 'In a World...'

    Lake Bell, the tall and lanky comedienne best known for work on Adult Swim's "Children's Hospital" and HBO's now defunct show "How To Make It In America," proved herself to be a quadruple threat to reckon with last week when "In a World...," her feature directorial-screenwriting debut (which she als...

    The 2013 Sundance Film Festival is most definitely shaping up to be an extraordinary one for female filmmakers, and the "Her Infinite Variety" panel on Main Street in Park City Wednesday celebrated that by bringing together six of the dozens of women with films here.

    Watch: Jason Sudeikis Plays A Horndog, Again, In 'A Good Old Fashioned Orgy' Trailer

    Orgies, generally speaking, tend not to be most riveting stuff on film, as anyone who suffered through Tom Cruise’s winding, nonsensical journey to see wife Nicole Kidman Julienne Davis get violated by strangers in a country house whilst wearing a mask in “Eyes Wide Shut” will no doubt agree. You'd think the "raunchy" trailer for the Apatowian “A Good Old Fashioned Orgy” – which sounds like it was a good title before it was a good screenplay - would aim to explode this notion quicker than you can say “Fidelio” with an onslaught of middle-class thirty-somethings disrobing and engaging all kinds of bad behavior. As it is, there's little of th...

    Katie Aselton To Direct & Star In Thriller 'Black Rock' With Kate Bosworth & Lake Bell

    If you don't know the name Katie Aselton, don't be too worried, but you'll likely be hearing more of it very soon. The actress has knocked around the indie world notably in the films of her husband Mark Duplass, and she was also a regular on the series "The League." But she took a big step with her ...

    Tribeca Review: 'A Good Old Fashioned Orgy' Is A Good New-Fashioned Slob Comedy

    The slob comedy, an invention of the American counterculture of the sixties and seventies that tore down movies’ perception of onscreen propriety, has miraculously survived in various forms since Bill Murray and his “Saturday Night Live” cronies started smirking on the big screen. Every time someone...

    Sony & Samuel Goldwyn Plan 'A Good Old Fashioned Orgy' With Jason Sudeikis

    Jason Sudeikis seems to have arrived out of nowhere to become one of the hottest comic actors in film right now. The "Saturday Night Live" veteran pretty much was the only redeemable factor (along with Charlie Day) in last year's Drew Barrymore rom-com "Going the Distance" and this year he's already...
