    Sundance Selects Goes Theatrical In 2011 & New Rental Service SundanceNow Launches

    This afternoon we spoke to Jonathan Sehring, President of IFC Entertainment. With the year coming to a close, 2010 marks IFC's tenth anniversary as a film distributor and in that time, they have become one of the most respected and important players on the market. They've adapted to the continually shifting world of independent cinema, embraced as one of the pioneers of theatrical/VOD day and date distribution and this year found the company launching yet another outlet, IFC Midnight, an outlet for genre films such as "The Human Centipede" and "Antichrist." But as we head into 2011, IFC Entertainment will continue to forge ahead with new venu...

    Ken & Barbie Plan Dream Vacation In New 'Toy Story' Short

    On the one hand, Pixar is easily the best animation studio currently running in Hollywood but on the other hand, we can barely muster fake enthusiasm for "Cars 2," the souped up sequel to the 2006 (merchandising) hit. However, when "Toy Story 3" director Lee Unkrich announced last summer that "Toy Story" characters would continue to live in a series of shorts with the first one landing in front of "Cars 2," suddenly we had a reason to be somewhat excited for the forthcoming sequel. Now, story artist Floyd Numan has stoked those flames of anticipation slightly revealing on Twitter that he has seen the new short, and while he doesn't seem to be...

"Bad Santa," "Rounders" and "Shakespeare in Love" are the first batch to titles to be exhumed but plenty more are waiting in the wings including, “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” “Copland,” “From Dusk Till Dawn,” “Swingers,” “Shall We Dance?,” “The Amityville Horror” and "Clerks." The news took many by surprise as pretty much no one actually involved with those films knew about any pe...

    Marvel Head Kevin Feige Says The Invaders Won't Appear In 'Captain America'

    Plus Updates On Other Marvel Projects Marvel's big game-plan for the next couple of years got rolling on Friday, with the debut (to somewhat mixed reaction) of the first trailer for "Thor." It was the first real salvo in a marketing campaign that's set to last for the next eighteen months, with Thor hitting theaters next May, "Captain America: The First Avenger" in July, and team-up movie "The Avengers" following in May 2012. It's a plan of almost unprecedented scope and ambition, not to mention risk, and Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, marked the occasion by taking part in a webchat over at Hero Complex not long after the trailer w...
