    Attack the Block's Cornish Keeps VFX Practical for His Super 8 Mile

    I like interviewing up-and-coming talent because there's a curiosity factor. Like, who's this rookie writer-director out of Britain everybody's talking about, whose movie won audience awards at both SXSW and the Los Angeles Film Festival?

    Trailer Watch: Ironclad Violence, Compressed

    Repetition can have a numbing effect. A dramatic scene viewed on repeat loses its power; repeating a joke kills its humor. But this violent Ironclad trailer (below) definitely tests one's gore quotient. Hack! Maim! Plunge! Repeat! Incoming!
