    SXSW: Gareth Edwards On His 'Little Passion Project,' 'Godzilla,' and Why He's Bracing for a Meltdown

    In 2010, a rookie British director by the name of Gareth Edwards came to SXSW with "Monsters," a low-budget passion project he wrote, directed, shot and did the visual effects for. Cut to four years later, and Edwards is at the same festival that launched his career with another "little passion proj...

    'Monsters' Sequel 'The Dark Continent' Moves Forward With 'Misfits' Director Tom Green

    Something curious happened this week. It was announced that an action film from someone who has historically been one of Hollywood's biggest stars would be skipping movie theaters. That's not unprecedented, or necessarily surprising, considering that the star in question is disgraced A-lister Mel Gi...

    Vertigo Films To Make Sequel To Gareth Edwards' Indie-Flick 'Monsters'

    But Edwards Won't Be Returning Behind The CameraGareth Edwards' "Monsters" was little-seen last year, even though reaction to the film from critics was wholly positive. The director made the film for a micro-budget and produced many of the special effects on his own computer. And while Edwards is al...

    The Best Scores & Soundtracks of 2010

    While 2009 seemed to burst at the seams with numerous ace soundtracks -- largely thanks to new films from Wes Anderson, Spike Jonze, Jim Jarmusch, Greg Mottola and Quentin Tarantino -- unless you were a “Twilight” fan, pickings were a lot slimmer this year for well curated songs in films (though, as you’ll see, there were some definite standouts). However, as if to compensate, composers stepped it up considerably with old reliables like Hans Zimmer, Clint Mansell, Carter Burwell and Michael Giacchino delivering the goods while left field surprises like Daft Punk and Trent Reznor shook up the stodgy old boys club with compelling, highly origin...

    In Theaters: 'Saw 3D,' ' The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest,' 'Welcome to the Rileys'

    With only one film opening wide this weekend, this is one of the year's slowest for new releases. Halloween is usually the calm before the storm of big holiday titles making their way into theaters. Business should be fairly strong following last week's "Paranormal Activity 2" opening and the higher ticket prices for "Saw 3D" should help it reclaim the number one spot after going head-to-head and losing to the first "Paranormal Activity" last year. In limited release this week, your options include the final installment in the Swedish film adaptions of Stieg Larsson's "Millenium" trilogy "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest," the dark drama...
