    Interview: Aziz Ansari Talks About Getting Some Action In '30 Minutes Or Less'

    28-year-old Aziz Ansari has had quite the meteoric rise over the past two years since audiences first got a taste of his unique sense of humor in scene-stealing moments from “I Love You Man,” “Observe and Report” and, most notably, Judd Apatow’s “Funny People.” The Columbia, South Carolina native la...

    Will Gluck Says The Lack Of Skin In 'Friends With Benefits' Was A Conscious Choice

    Nudity, Scientology & More We Learned From The Writer/Director About His Latest Rom-ComThis past weekend, "Friends with Benefits," starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, opened to perhaps a smaller tally than the studio would have wanted, in part because of its striking similarity to January's infinitely dopier "No Strings Attached." Though bearing a similarity in their premise, writer/director Will Gluck's "Friends with Benefits" is the fizzier, funnier and more enjoyable film and it’s a shame that just because it's opening later means people are leaving it behind. We spoke to Will Gluck over the weekend about the comparisons to "No Stri...

    Exclusive: Interview with 'Haywire' & 'Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' Poster Designer Neil Kellerhouse

    You may not know the name Neil Kellerhouse, but you definitely know his work. He's the graphic designer behind the posters for "The Social Network," "I'm Still Here," "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," and more recently "Haywire" (which you can read more about here) among many others. He's also done work for The Criterion Collection, Pixar, and gets regular calls to work with directors like Steven Soderbergh and David Fincher. Kellerhouse appeals to these big names because his pieces are striking and often, for lack of a better term, "out of the box" of what is required to market most films. Unlike 99% of film posters, which are designed by p...

    Miranda July Cut An "Accidentally Porny" Sex Scene From 'The Future'

    Dead Cats, Dirty Limericks, Getting Locked In A Closet & More We Learned About Miranda July's LatestWhen our own James Rocchi saw Miranda July's latest film, "The Future" at Sundance back in January, he noted the film succeeded "as a single story about the terrifying possibilities of life, the uncertainty of love and the certainty of the passage of time." A month later, we caught up with July at SXSW, she mirrored his thoughts on the film calling "The Future" a "a horror movie about facing the void, the empty moment where you don’t know what to do with yourself." And it's in that pre-mid-life crisis of sorts that "The Future" finds its compel...

    Comic-Con '11: Vampires --The Biting Kind -- Are Back With 'Fright Night' & 'Underworld: Awakening'

    Though "Breaking Dawn" has captured the hearts of teens and their moms, the brutal, blood-sucking, non-sparkly vampire remains immortal. After Thursday's "Twilight" lovefest, Comic-Con's Hall H was taken over by two vehicles for the meaner brand of the undead with "Fright Night" and "Underworld: Awa...

    Interview: Brit Marling Takes Us On A Tour Of 'Another Earth'

She eventually comes into the life of the grieving father John (William Mapother) whose child she killed all while the rest of the world deals with a mirror version of Earth appearing in the sky, hidden behind the Sun. Marling, who co-wrote the film with director Mike Cahill, has become a major personality in the indie film world with both "Another Earth" and "Sound Of My Voice" (also co-written by, and starring Marling) surprising both the arthouse and genre fans...

    Interview: Writers Christopher Marcus & Stephen McFeely Discuss Patriotism & ‘Captain America'

    Marvel’s most patriotic superhero, Captain America, is finally getting his just due on the big screen after years of attempts and misfires like the corny 1990 release you’ve probably never heard of (count yourself lucky) featuring Matt Salinger in the red, white and blue man tights.

    Interview: Errol Morris Talks The Anxiety Of Making 'Tabloid' & Finding The Laughter In His Films

    In a time where documentaries are made cheaply and are often no more than glossy, agenda-pushing propaganda bulleted lists, filmmakers like Errol Morris seem even more admirable. Starting in 1978 with the amusing "Gates of Heaven" (which followed a number of people who had beloved animals buried in a California pet cemetery), the man alternated between scrutinizing the weird and picking apart the political, triumphing in both camps due to both his respectful and prudent attitude. He even invented his own interviewing technique called the "Interrotron" which, using two-way mirrors in a similar way a teleprompter would work, allows both camps t...

    Interview: 'Horrible Bosses' Director Seth Gordon Reveals The Original Ending Of The Film

    Also Talks Improv & The Influence Of 'Shallow Grave'If your job is making you feel murderous, there is perhaps no better cathartic experience at the multiplex this weekend than "Horrible Bosses." The comedy stars Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jamie Foxx, Colin Farrell, Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Aniston and follows three friends, each dealing with an unbearable boss who is making their life hell, when they decide to do the unthinkable: they are going to kill their bosses. Enlisting the help of a "murder consultant" -- the appropriately named Motherfucker Jones -- the hapless trio sets out on their mission but of course, it's far ...
