Sundance Questions and Answers With Kristen Bell

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 »

5 Questions With Teresa Palmer from the Sundance Film Festival

Being the best thing in a movie can be both a curse and a blessing, but Teresa Palmer has used that gift to carve out a distinctive career for herself, even in the occasional film where she might have been the onlygood thing ("I Am Number Four," we're looking at you).

But in "Wish You Were Here," she joins an able cast that includes Joel Edgerton ("Warrior") and Felicity Price (TV's "Home and Away") to tell the story of a young woman whose tryst with her sister's husband is the tip of a much larger iceberg of bad decisions and dangerous encounters, and proves she's even better when matched with folks who are equally formidable.

Planet Fanboy Orbits Sundance

Paramount

This dispatch is coming to you from the Ice Planet of Hoth. But instead of Tauntauns, they ride Audis. I'm at the Sundance Film Festival, a wonderful, magical place where your feet may be constantly cold and damp, but your heart is kept warm by a bombardment of the best in independent and world cinema.

The "sun" in Sundance is a cruel joke. Park City, Utah, is atop a mountain and, in case you didn't notice, it is January. This means snow, this means slush, this means wet, this means slipping on the ice and this means frequent hits off the asthma inhaler due to the intense elevation. Still, I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I know what you're thinking. This is Planet Fanboy! This isn't Planet Snootypants McArthouse! To which I respond: a) Planet Fanboy plots no such predictable orbit! and b) There's plenty of stuff at Sundance for nerdy movie lovers. Get More »

With the possible exception of  Zooey Deschanel, it's hard to imagine an actress playing "dream girl" with more charm than Teresa Palmer. With her appearances in "December Boys," "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" and "Take Me Home Tonight," Palmer is securing a role as one of Hollywood’s up-and-coming love interests, as much for her down-to-earth personality as her stunning good looks.

In her upcoming film “Warm Bodies,” Jonathan Levine puts her remarkable co-star chemistry to the ultimate test. Palmer plays a young woman who finds herself slowly getting involved romantically with... a zombie. Speaking to the actress in Park City, Utah at the Sundance Film Festival after the premiere of her new film "Wish You Were Here," she explained how she wrapped her head around portraying attraction to the undead.

Spike Lee Does the Profane Thing With Sundance Rant

To put it bluntly, Spike Lee isn't a guy who bottles up his feelings, regardless of occasion. Lee makes tough films about subjects other directors are loath to touch, loudly disputes referee calls courtside at Knicks games, and isn't about to let a bunch of Sundance executives stifle his, er… "creativity," something they learned the hard way at a screening of Lee's latest film.

Lee previewed the film, "Red Hook Summer," with no introduction, but all bets were off once the movie was over. Get More »

Paul Rudd Perfects the Lovable Moron in 'Our Idiot Brother' Trailer

Big Beach Films

Whether he's playing the straightman to a band of wacky co-stars ("I Love You, Man," "Role Models") or the affable dunce ("Forgetting Sarah Marshall", "Anchorman"), Paul Rudd  is always exuding charisma. The actor would have to commit a fairly heinous crime for our love to even begin to wane -- he's that charming.

Now, Rudd will put his laid back allure to the test with his new movie "Our Idiot Brother," a family comedy about a all-around nice hippie who redefines Murphy's Law. Get More »
