6 TV Shows We'd Like To See Get The Big-Screen
Even for the non-marshmallows among us, the “Veronica Mars” movie, which hits theaters this week (our SXSW review here), being brought back from the dead by a combination of fan activism, creator and cast agitation and Kickstarter-related chutzpah, is at the very least an interesting phenomenon. The long-defunct TV show that gets its day on the big screen with original cast intact is a rare and precious event achieved by only a few, but the possibility is often endlessly bandied around for many for years after the show has ended.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Marvel already knows "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is going to be a success, and back in January, they started development on the inevitable third movie, rehiring directors Anthony and Joe Russo for "Captain America 3." And as you might expect, with press rounds beginning for 'The Winter Soldier,' the sibling directors will be asked about the next installment, but anyone looking for details might be disappointed as they're still figuring it all out.

Matthew McConaughey ‘Wall Street’ Chest Bump Gets Remixed; Explains Origins Of ‘Alright, Alright, Alright’

Wolf of Wall Street
“You know what a Fugazi is? A Fugazee, fugazi, it’s a wahzee, it’s a woozee, it’s [whistles], fairy dust.” Matthew McConaughey is in Martin Scorsese’s three hour opus “The Wolf of Wall Street,” for what, all of fifteen minutes? But as per usual in the last few years, he steals the show as Leonardo DiCaprio’s insane Wall Street d-bag mentor. His rules for living, as mentioned in our review is, “masturbate several times a day and ingest generous amounts of cocaine.” Read More »

She Used To Love Me A Lot Johnny Cash
Just like Tupac, even though Johnny Cash has passed on, new music keeps coming. Later this month, Columbia/Legacy will finally be releasing Out Among The Stars, an album's worth of new cuts by the legendary country singer than he recorded in the '80s, but that was shelved at the time by his label. But now getting ready to see the light of day again, the folks at the label are putting some effort into it to make sure the music gets its proper due.

Among the Living
In 2007 French filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo released "Inside," a French horror film about a pregnant woman who is violently targeted by an unknown intruder. The movie was brutal, unflinching, and totally brilliant. It was an exercise in terror that was both excessively stylized and almost uncomfortably realistic; a movie of visceral muchness. The violence of "Inside" meant that a wide release would come with the stigma of an NC-17 rating, so it didn't get the kind of exposure and acclaim that it rightfully deserved, instead amassing a cult audience on home video. Their follow-up, "Livid," was never released in American on any format, so the fact that their new film, "Among the Living," would make its world premiere at South by Southwest, was pretty big news indeed, not just for horror fans but fans of quality cinema in general. Sadly, the new film captures none of the fun or pizzazz of their first film. In fact, it's straight up bad.

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas Neil Patrick Harris
While we already have David Fincher's "Gone Girl" on alert as a possible Best Picture contender, there are some variables to consider in the Ben Affleck starring thriller, based on the bestselling book by Gillian Flynn. Notably, the casting has some interesting choices in the shape of roles for Tyler Perry and Neil Patrick Harris. And eyebrows may be further raised by the news of what sounds like a fairly intense sex scene between Harris and titular gone girl, played by Rosamund Pike.

Enemy
As Denis Villeneuve's transfixing psychothriller "Enemy" heads to theaters, one thing that perhaps has been forgotten in coverage about the film is that it's based on the novel by José Saramago. Indeed, the Nobel Prize winning Portuguese writer's excellent "The Double" is the source material for the film, which takes the concept of a man discovering his exact double in a movie, and transplants it to Toronto for a tale of identity, sexuality and much more. And in this new, exclusive featurette we see how that transition came about.

True Detective
If you think that we (and the rest of the internet) were gonna stop talking about “True Detective” just because the show is over then you're about as wrong as the people who thought it was Maggie's dad all along (seriously, how did that get traction?). While there's been plenty of talk around here about season 2 and the people who might work on it (here's five directors we'd like to see in the mix), with the anthology format meaning there'll be a whole new cast and a new director (or several), we're also not done thinking about the first season, and nor is director Cary Fukanaga, who talked with Vulture about people's reactions to the final episode and the season as a whole, notably pushing back against the legions of Chekhov's gunmen online who insist that every little thing had to tie into the final mystery.
