Frank, Sundance
An unexpected little treat has arrived on the eve of SXSW: the trailer for “Frank,” one of our favorite films from the Sundance Film Festival. Starring Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Scott McNairy, “Frank” is a wickedly funny yet poignant look at outsider art, misfits, freaky rock n’ roll and more. Directed by Lenny Abrahamson (“What Richard Did”), the film is loosely based on the story of Chris Sievey, aka Frank Sidebottom, an English musician who became notorious for always wearing a giant papier–mache head whenever he played live.

Frank, Fassbender
While the Sundance Film Festival seems like a distant memory, one film we can't stop talking about is "Frank." One of the best films we saw in Park City, and a definite highlight among our writers on the ground, the Michael Fassbender-starring musical comedy is a distinct, odd, unique and highly entertaining take on being a musician and the process of creating art. And now we've got a batch of new images to take you further inside the zany world of the movie.

Frank
Are some diamonds in the rough so special they can only exist on the fringes? When a rare species enters the ecosystem of the mainstream, does its fragile, sensitive needs break down amongst the polluted elements around it? These are some of the ideas expressed in “Frank,” an off-the-wall and terrific paean to the misfits and freaks of the world, their dreams, visions and togetherness.

We’ve sat through an entire generation of fantasy and science fiction films about a protagonist gifted with extraordinary powers who first Resists, then Accepts The Call, which almost always involves saving the world, defeating a powerful villain, and re-establishing the status quo. Very rarely does anyone seek a cause beyond preventing the apocalypse, placing them within a narrative where they are rewarded not for being proactive, but rather reacting to the latest large-scale disaster. Imagine where we’d be as a film society today if Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker fully dedicated himself to wrestling. Right off the bat, the young lad at the center of Richard Curtis’ “About Time” does what any of us would do if we were gifted with extraordinary powers: he tries to romance Rachel McAdams.

Romance isn't easy, but what if you had a chance to do-over that first date, have a second attempt at a first impression or even just redo that first time in the sack? That's the central premise of "About Time," the upcoming romantic comedy from the man who knows a few things about complicated love, Richard Curtis ("Love Actually," "Four Weddings And A Funeral").

How would you like to see a movie about a quirky British man who travels through time by stepping into a seemingly small room? What if that movie also co-starred Bill Nighy? I know what you’re thinking, Dr. Who, right? Unless, of course, you read the title of this article, then you’re not thinking that at all. Regardless, this isn’t a movie about Time Lords; instead it’s a new romantic comedy from the director of “Love Actually” and “Pirate Radio.” Check out the first US trailer for it below.

For anyone with even a vaguely geeky bone in their body, this weekend brought big news. Yes, Dan Harmon is coming back to "Community," but in perhaps even bigger news, Matt Smith, the eleventh actor to play the seminal time-travelling hero of the BBC's long-running "Doctor Who," which is fifty years old today, will be hanging up his bowtie and tweed jacket, and leaving the series at the end of the year.

What if you could jump back through time to say the perfect line, make a better first impression or perform better in the sack? That's the ambitious central premise of "About Time," the latest from "Love Actually" writer/director Richard Curtis, that takes the traditional rom-com and adds a little does of time travel in for good measures. Does it work? Well, let's take a look at the first trailer...
