Exclusive

On an almost daily basis, I take time to wonder about Cuba Gooding Jr. Where he went after winning his Oscar, why we don’t see more of him, whether he’ll have another catch phrase. Those sorts of things. Fortunately, we got our hands on some exclusive images from his forthcoming, direct-to-DVD movie, Sacrifice. The story focuses on a beat down cop, a giant religious icon made of drugs, and the very bad people that want it back. Direct-to-DVD has a bad reputation, but we here at FSR have been its champion from time to time because there are some truly great movies that never see screens. From the looks of the trailer (which is included below the pics), this one might be one of the good ones. As a bonus, you can also see what Christian Slater’s been up to.

At the 2009 edition of Fantastic Fest, Ben Wheatley’s Down Terrace won two awards in the “Next Wave Features” category, taking home Best Film and Best Screenplay. As it turns out, it was one of only three films that year not reviewed by the staff at Film School Rejects. So until now, we’ve known very little about the dark gangster comedy. Then we received this exclusive clip from Magnolia Pictures, who will release the film on October 15th, and it all makes perfect sense. Have a look for yourself…

The thing that I appreciate most about the new poster for Hatchet 2 is that it makes no bones about the fact that it’s a horror film. I’m not sure a film with its name could, but it’s nice to see a production owning up to what it is. Hell, it’s also refreshing to see a horror film released in October. As you may have heard, the film is the largest release of an unrated horror film in 25 years, so a lot might be riding on this marketing. Take a look for yourself:

The movie that you didn’t know about hitting theaters this weekend is the follow up to Mesrine: Killer Instinct which sees Vincent Cassel continue his role as the notorious French gangster who just happens to look like the anchor for a regional nightly news program in the 1970s. Even without the context of the rest of the film, this clip shows how undeniably charismatic Cassel can play. Even though he’s in the hot seat in court, I’m instantly on his side – especially since he seems to be making an equal number of good points and 101 Dalmations references. Check it out for yourself:

Bryan Cranston

Nicolas Winding Refn is gearing up for his first big Hollywood experience. The auteur is currently working on Drive with Ryan Gosling, but now he’s added another actor to the mix: Bryan Cranston. When I talked to Refn recently about his excellent new film Valhalla Rising the conversation led off with him talking about casting sessions, and that’s where Refn said Cranston had joined the cast of his upcoming “love story” (as he described it).

First Look Studios has provided us with a little treat today: a set of exclusive images for their upcoming DVD release 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams, from director Tim Sullivan. It debuted at the Texas Frightmare Weekend earlier this year and will make its way to DVD on July 20th. From what I can tell, it has been pretty well received. Shock Till You Drop gave it an 8/10 rating, saying that it “isn’t going to be to the taste of the more prudish amongst us. However, for those that do relish all the finer things in life, this sequel is the real deal!”

Samuel Bayer has taken his sweet time to get into feature films and with A Nightmare on Elm Street, it’s clear it was worth the wait. With a film that deals with highly surreal imagery, a great music video director seems like the prime candidate.

Kevin Heffernan

After chatting with him right before the theatrical release of The Slammin’ Salmon, we decided that Kevin Heffernan is our kind of guy. So we’re back for more. And to celebrate the release of The Slammin’ Salmon on DVD and Blu-ray (it’s in stores now), we sat down to once again pick the brain of the first-time director.

Kick-Ass Week

Christopher Mintz-Plasse is a funny guy, but no matter what he does with the rest of his life he will eternally be known as McLovin’. Superbad was his arrival on the movie scene, and even after Role Models, How To Train Your Dragon, and the upcoming sure to be classic Marmaduke it will continue to be his calling card for some time to come… but his latest role and film has a better shot at changing that status quo than any other.

Kevin Smith

Kevin Smith’s long talked about Red State may now finally be hitting the big screen. After years of trouble getting financing, Smith has actually landed backing. For a while now we’ve known very little about Red State. Besides the fact it’s a horror movie, the plot itself still remains a mystery. That is, until now…
