If you had the chance to go back in time--weapons provided--would you? Before you answer, ask yourself: is going to another point in time really better than cleaning out the toilet at your internship and not having other options? Well, you'd be in the same boat as "Parks And Recreation" star Aubrey Plaza in “Safety Not Guaranteed,” which premiered to near-universal praise at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday. Based on the fake ad that spawned the legendary YTMND meme, the first feature from writer Derek Connolly and director Colin Trevorrow takes us to a world where time travel may be possible. So could the fact that Kenneth (Mark Duplass), the would-be time traveler, is as crazy as he sounds.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall. We can only imagine what kind of oddball conversations Charlie Sheen, Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman are having on the set of Roman Coppola's “Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan” and while we can't be there in person, their wardrobe is speaking volumes.

While he's been busy producing for family (Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere"), co-writing with friends (Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom") and shooting second unit for both (Francis Ford Coppola's "Tetro" and Anderson's "The Darjeeling Limited"), it's high time Roman Coppola made a new film. His last effort, the deeply underrated "CQ" was ten years ago and so we're very glad he's casting up his latest effort, the indie pic, "Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan" (apparently no longer titled "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charlie Swan III," unless Variety's being super terse).

The dry, sharp comedy stylings of rising star Aubrey Plaza ("Parks and Recreation," "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) next to the train wreck that was (possibly still is) Charlie Sheen certainly sounds like an odd combination on paper. But on closer inspection, maybe it's really an inspired idea, especially given it's coming with the long-awaited return of one of our favorite underrated filmmakers.
