Don Jons Addiction verticalI mentioned in a previous post that Don Jon’s Addiction was acquired for $4 million with a whopping $25 million P&A (Prints & Advertising) commitment by Relativity Media for an expected summer release.

Here’s why I think that commitment could very well pay off for Relativity Media:

The Hunt for GollumThe FFOW! series takes a look at that vast library created by the proud and the passionate: fan films.  Whether the budget and talent is astronomical or amateur, FFOW! celebrates the filmmakers whose love of comics, books, movies, video games, and TV shows inspires them to join the great conversation with their own homemade masterpieces.

 


Love is in the air, fellow FFOW! readers! Next week is Valentine’s Day, so in honor of the blessed saint we are going to watch --

(CRASH! The door breaks in. Jake spins around before a black satchel is thrown over his head. Three goons rope his hands and feet together, throw him in the back of a trunk, and drive him to the Los Angeles warehouse district.)

 

Sundance 2013My 2013 Sundance trip has already come and gone. In six days, I saw 13 movies, and my company hosted 3 events. I made it to 1 party, got lost on 1 bus, and almost missed 1 screening. I officially missed out on 1 movie that I had a ticket to and didn’t get to see, but it wasn’t on my original list to begin with, so I think I did pretty well!

Next week, a horde of Warm Bodies will swarm theaters. If you think teen zombies are cute, wait until you see child zombies!

 

 

 

 

 

Sundance 2013It’s time! Sundance 2013 is just around the corner. The festival kicks off Thursday, the 17th, and runs until Sunday, the 27th. The Sundance Film Festival creates an opportunity for independent film to make its mark on the entertainment industry at large. Last year, I saw Beasts of the Southern Wild, and I remember the electric energy and excitement that surged through the crowd after the screening. It was the type of energy that made me think, this movie is something special.

Which films will stand out this year? Only time will tell . . .

 

Les MiserablesA two-and-a-half-hour opera set during the French Revolution may not strike everyone as a great movie, but those naysayers are fools. Les Misérables is easily one of the best movies of the year.

Happy Hobbit day, my fellowship of FFOWers! For all you groggy-eyed fans who braved a 170-minute screening last night at 12:03 a.m., I know there’s only one thing you want besides sweet, black coffee: more Tolkien!

Every summer in the city of Metropolis, IL, superhero fans flock to the four-day Superman Celebration festival and attend live concerts, a massive costume contest, and the Superhero Fan Film Competition.  The 2013 competition is now open for entries, so this week we take a look at last year’s hilarious first place winner.

 

 

 

 

sushi girl posterIn what may be the most intense and violent thriller to be released this year, Sushi Girl is a film that will leave its mark with moviegoers as the pinnacle of modern exploitation films.  Independently produced by Assembly Line in association with Level Up Productions, the film’s creators masterfully packaged an extremely talented cast and crew with a twisted and gut-wrenching script that will stand up next to any big studio production.  Supplemented by an already growing fanbase as confirmed by a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign to premiere the film at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, Sushi Girl is a shining example of how good, old-fashioned creativity, hard work, and dedication can develop into a solid motion picture.

 

David Krumholtz pairing10.) The Santa Clause / Batman and Robin

Child actor Eric Lloyd played the lovable Charlie Calvin in The Santa Clause and then went on to play young Bruce Wayne in the colorful and perhaps, awesomely bad, Batman and Robin. Think of it this way: Spending time at the North Pole followed by an evening with Mr. Freeze should put anyone in the spirit for snow and holiday décor. Or, you could always pop in Serenity after The Santa Clause and watch Bernard the Elf (David Krumholtz) as Mr. Universe.
