MOVIE MARKETING FOR DUMMIES

INTERVIEW WITH THE INDIE FILM MARKETING GURU! SECRETS REVEALED! When it comes to movie marketing, Mark Steven Bosko is no dummy. In fact, it’s not an exaggeration to say that Bosko knows it all. As author of “The Complete Independent Movie Marketing Handbook,” he’s been promoting and distributing independent features for more than 10 years and performing virtually every job on a film production…

DO ED BURNS AND RACHEL WEISZ HAVE “CONFIDENCE”?

Edward Burns and Rachel Weisz may star in James Foley’s grifter thriller “Confidence,” but do they actually know what the movie is about? You be the judge. “Someone says to me last night, it’s a three-dimensional chess game. I have absolutely no idea what that means…”

AGENT 15 (DVD)

Paget Brewster is just plain hot. Paget Brewster in a bikini with a gun? Forget about it!

MICHAEL BLIEDEN: PLAYING WITH MELVIN

SCREENING AT THE SONOMA VALLEY FILM FESTIVAL! Who knew a four-hour dinner could ever lead to anything other than a massive bar tab, and maybe a fat ass? In the case of Michael Blieden, it’s gone much further…

PAULY SHORE: KISS MY WIEZEL

Now, there’s a rumor that you’re dead. There are all these posters everywhere declaring your death. Clearly you’re here in the flesh and you have this, it’s a mockumentary film, right? Tell us about it. It’s something that I kind of wrote out of a depression about the Wiezel being over, but I didn’t want … Continued

FILM THREAT PARTY ROCKS SXSW 2003

SXSW PARTY PHOTOS GALORE! The party took place at B.D. Riley’s on 6th Street and the Film Threat boys, myself, Eric Campos, Barry Robison, Tim Merrill and Merle Bertrand got there early to check out the place. We were warned by the SXSW staff that there was going to be a huge crowd for this party as there was really nothing else happening at that time. I personally love party chaos. I was hoping for debauchery, broken chairs, a fight and the cops showing up…

CHILDREN OF DUNE

PREMIERES ON SCI-FI CHANNEL TONIGHT! Anyone who has ever read Frank Herbert’s “Dune” series will tell you that these novels are virtually impossible to faithfully translate to the screen. Prepare for steamy love scenes that take sex and skin to the limit, jaw-dropping effects that blow away recent big screen sci-fi, along with respectable cameos from Susan Sarandon and Alice Krige. Ultimately, “Children of Dune” is a worthy adaptation that will satisfy purists…

MY DINNER WITH BOB

What is your hope for the film? That it gets distributed. Does that mean anything to you? That you would get to see it. That’s all that means. It’s a technical term: distributed. Yeah, you know, you make a little movie like this… and I think we pulled it off. I think it works; it’s … Continued

THOM FITZGERALD & SARAH POLLEY: “SPECIAL EVENT”

SUNDANCE 2003 INTERVIEW! What makes a Sundance audience cry? Try Thom Fitzgerald’s AIDS drama “The Event.” We caught up with writer/director Thom Fitzgerald and “The Event” star Sarah Polley to talk to them a bit about this film that questions whether the terminally ill should be allowed to take their own lives or not…
