Dick's Sporting Goods Derek Cianfrance
Tied game. 2-2 count. Runners on first and third. The pitcher checks on the runner at third, then attempts to pick off the guy on first. His focus now squarely on the next pitch. He gets in position, winds up, and… you’ve got yourself an incredible ad directed by Derek Cianfrance (“Blue Valentine”) and shot by Peter Deming (“Oz the Great and Powerful”). In one single take, Cianfrance and Deming perfectly capture the mounting, and often prolonged, tension that occurs during a baseball game. The ad was made for Dick’s Sporting Goods.

After lots of (bloody, bloody) hype, "Evil Dead" made its presence known at SXSW and reaction was...mixed. Some dug the grim, R-rated movie while we said in our review that director "[Fede] Alvarez seems content to simply show us the ingredients: a chainsaw, the book of the dead, 'The Classic,' without knowing how to put them together into anything scary, involving or inventive." But there's no doubt there will be few things more go-for-broke hardcore horror this spring, and a couple of new clips have arrived.

While superheros will once again dominate the summer season, Disney is hoping that audiences will want to try something a little bit different. Granted, it's a still a movie with Johnny Depp wearing lots of feathers and headgear, but it's in a genre that has traditionally had a mixed track record: the western. However, hoping to tap nostalgia nuts and those looking for a lotta bang for their buck, "The Lone Ranger" is riding over the horizon.

Danny Boyle
Last night in New York, the 92YTribeca presented a Conversation with Danny Boyle; an hour long conversation with the Academy Award-winning filmmaker (“Trainspotting,” “Slumdog Millionaire” about his career, his oeuvre, his iconic use of music in film and his upcoming mind bending art heist movie, “Trance.” Hosted by Rolling Stone’s Logan Hill, the conversation hewed closely towards Boyle’s use of music in film. From the big-beat eclecticism of “Trainspotting” (Underworld, Iggy Pop, New Order), the pacific lilt of "The Beach" (Moby, Underworld, UNKLE), the crescendoing guitars of “28 Days Later” (John Murphy as influenced by John Cage and Godspeed! You Black Emperor), the worldbeat flavor of “Slumdog Millionaire” (M.I.A. and A.R. Rahman) and more, Boyle’s always had a distinctively dynamic style of using music in his films, many of them giving them the kinetic energy that has made them so popular.

Rob Zombie is back behind the camera for his first feature since 2009's "The Haunted World of El Superbeasto," and if early word is anything to go by, his intensity and ability to scare has weakened one bit. When we caught it at TIFF we said in our review that it's "compelling as it is because it’s driven by a creeping...sense of atmospheric dread." And while the soundtrack for his trippy witch movie will undoubtedly help that tone...it will also be funky....

Fans of feel-good movies owe a lot to screenwriter and director Nancy Meyers. Her string of heart-warmers stretches from “The Parent Trap” and “Father of the Bride” all the way back to “Private Benjamin”, which won her a Writers Guild Award and earned her only Oscar nomination to date.

Okay, so it's not quite Jack Nicholson who the filmmakers were hoping for last fall, but a movie with Robert Duvall and Robert Downey Jr. in the lead roles, still sounds pretty good us.

Bet you forgot all about this one, but guess what, so did we.
