All hail mighty Sundance, the King of the Film Festivals (really, tell us one that's bigger, at least in America), that annual gathering where movie stars, journalists, Park City locals and even Paris Hilton join together to check out what Robert Redford considers the year's best independent films.

Indie director Randall Moore has pulled off one of the boldest feats of guerrilla cinema in recent memory, as CNN is reporting that his breakout Sundance sensation "Escape From Tomorrow" was filmed entirely at Disneyland and Walt Disney World — without Disney's knowledge or permission.
Good thing those guys at Disney don't have the resources to pursue legal action, huh? Get More »
The one annual event that allows Hollywood to really experience winter is now in full swing in Park City, Utah. The Sundance Film Festival allows the stars to hit the slopes in-between screenings of the latest independent films as the Sundance Kid himself, Robert Redford, watches on.
This year has attracted the likes of Dakota Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen, Jessica Alba, Juno Temple, Shia LaBeouf, Evan Rachel Wood, Amanda Seyfried, James Franco, Mia Wasikowska, Matthew McConaughey and Shailene Woodley, with more famous-types coming in every day — stop by our gallery often, as it will only get bigger ... and colder.

The stars have traveled to the sleepy town of Park City, Utah to once again celebrate movies and piss off the locals at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. We caught up with one of our favorite sexy funnygirls Kristen Bell, who is here with the coming-of-age tale "The Lifeguard." (Being a Sundance movie, how depressing it is? She’ll tell ya in a sec.)
The film stars Bell as a nearing 30-year-old who returns home to live with her parents and hopes to find herself through late nights out with friends and her high school job as a lifeguard.
Here Bell, who is six-and-a-half months pregnant, talks about how fiance Dax Shepard supports her in her time of need and why she wasn’t sweating the wedgies from the lifeguard suit. Get More »
James Franco had no intention of being the sex king of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. But sometimes the universe gifts us a miracle.
So it has come to pass that the 34-year-old actor has arrived in town to promote no less than three sex-filled films. In "Lovelace," the dark story of the '70s-era porn star, he plays Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. "Kink" is a Franco-produced documentary about the world's largest producer of BDSM pornography. And then there's a co-directing effort called "Interior. Leather Bar.," a sexually charged riff on a 1980 film about gay cruising.
Has this all been part of Franco's plan, the next step in his always-keep-you-guessing, is-he-really-going-there-now career? Or is it just happenstance, the entertainment gods smiling down upon us? Franco, predictably thoughtful on the subject, can see it both ways.
"V/H/S" was actually pretty good as far as found footage horror movies ago, with its gimmicky no-budget aesthetic actually working especially well for its unnerving anti-casual-sex opener, "Amateur Night," and the creepy final segment involving a very haunted house, "10/31/98."
A sequel was inevitable, which brings us to "S-VHS" (super VHS), named after the semi-professional analog format that showed up in the late '80s and lasted for about two weeks. Get More »
