SXSW 2014: 'Veronica Mars' to Premiere, Jon Favreau's 'Chef' to Open Festival

Posted By Drew Taylor on Jan 9th 2014 2:48PM
AP Photo/Denis Poroy If you held a very large weapon to our head and asked us what our favorite film festival was, we'd probably have to tinkle in our pants. And then we'd answer: the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas. Warmer than Sundance and weirder than Cannes, it exemplifies Austin's easygoing vibe and serious commitment to all sorts of cinema, from genre movies to documentar... read more

'Barry Munday' Stars Talk Douchebags, Losers & True Love (VIDEO)

Posted By Maggie Furlong on April 04, 2010
Everyone knows a guy like 'Barry Munday' -- always hitting on ladies, happy hours at TGI Fridays every night, a general distaste for relationships in general. But sometimes even Barry Mundays stumble upon something special ... even if it takes a tragedy in the testicular region and a paternity lawsuit to get them there. 'Barry Munday' follows the ultimate Barry (Patrick Wilson), who gets a cras...

'Elektra Luxx': Carla Gugino, Malin Akerman & Emmanuelle Chriqui Anyone? (VIDEO)

Posted By Maggie Furlong on March 03, 2010
Porn stars, call girls, lesbians, surprise pregnancies, slutty stewardesses, ladies who lunch looking to spice things up in the bedroom ... 'Elektra Luxx' has all that, and some laughs too. A follow-up to Sebastian Gutierrez's 'Women In Trouble,' 'Elektra Luxx' is the second in his planned trilogy, an homage to beautiful women starring his real-life girlfriend Carla Gugino as the titular former...

Moviefone SXSW Recap: Hear From the Stars at the Biggest Premieres (VIDEO)

Posted By Maggie Furlong on March 03, 2010
Moviefone was happy to sponsor one of the coolest film festivals around: SXSW in Austin, Texas. And since Austin is an amazing city and the SXSW film line-up had plenty of buzz, we were also happy we got to go.

Edward Norton & Tim Blake Nelson Talk 'Leaves of Grass,' Going South & More (VIDEO)

Posted By Maggie Furlong on March 03, 2010
'Leaves of Grass' is a quirky and sometimes bizarre little festival movie that just so happens to have a laundry list of big Hollywood names in it, including Edward Norton, Susan Sarandon, Richard Dreyfuss and Keri Russell. The reason? Writer, director and actor Tim Blake Nelson. At SXSW, Moviefone sat down with Nelson (best known for his role in 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?') and his 'Leaves o...

Our Super 'Kick-Ass' Interview With Aaron Johnson & Christopher Mintz-Plasse (VIDEO)

Posted By Maggie Furlong on March 03, 2010
We've got a few more weeks before 'Kick-Ass' hits theaters, but you should prepare yourself for the inevitable (and well-deserved) headlines: 'Kick-Ass' Kicks Ass. Helmed by Matthew Vaughn ('Layer Cake'), the movie follows a comic book geek named Dave Lizewski who decides to become a real-life superhero, going by the name Kick-Ass. Brit Aaron Johnson fills the title role's green neoprene, with ...

'MacGruber' Stars On Classic MacGruber, Getting Romantic & Loving Veggies (VIDEO)

Posted By Maggie Furlong on May 05, 2010
Admit it: When you heard they were making a 'MacGruber' movie, you laughed. And probably not in a good way. Well I'm happy to report that the flick -- based on the popular, if not completely ridiculous, 'Saturday Night Live' sketch -- made me laugh, too. Out loud. Over and over again. Starring the greatly underappreciated Will Forte as the bumbling 'MacGyver'-esque lead, with Kristen Wiig, Ryan...

John C. Reilly & Jonah Hill Talk 'Cyrus,' Garry Marshall & Being Birthed By Marisa Tomei (VIDEO)

Posted By Maggie Furlong on March 03, 2010
Between showing off his Garry Marshall impersonation, regaling the imaginary joys of being birthed by his movie mom Marisa Tomei and storming off set to yell at a loud hotel-goer in the hallway, it's a wonder Jonah Hill got in any 'Cyrus' talk with his costar John C. Reilly ... but impressively, he did. 'Cyrus,' the latest from mumbelcore moviemaking brothers Mark and Jay Duplass, follows sad d...
