Prince Avalanche
The bickering buddies format is so familiar, it's hard to believe that it can still be used and seem fresh, funny and vibrant, but sometimes you just need the right mix of talent. David Gordon Green, Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch are just that in "Prince Avalanche," and a brand new, charming trailer is here to convince you to get out of the house this summer, hit your local arthouse and settle in for a real treat. (It's on our list of Best Films Of The Year...So Far for a reason).

Prince Avalanche
Summer is all about hitting the road, but if you can't make it out over the next couple of months, David Gordon Green has the next best thing, cinematically speaking. His low-key indie flick "Prince Avalanche" is on the way, and a new poster and some fresh pics have arrived.

While David Gordon Green's "Prince Avalanche" -- one of the best films of 2013 so far -- may have emerged as a surprise, it appears he's not finished with his remake of the little known Icelandic film "Either Way." His picture, which stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, centering around the relationship between two city workers spending the summer in solitude working on the roadways of a county highway ravaged by wildfire, is one that he wants to tackle again. And again. And again. Back in January, he told us he wants to remake it three more times (seriously), including a version in Australia. And recently in the country to promote the film, he spilled a few more details on what his ideas are for that particular do-over.

The Best movies of 2013 so far
Wow, wait, okay, what? It’s June? Right! So here we are again, rapidly approaching the midpoint of another year, and as is our custom, we’re taking a moment to pause and look back at 2013 so far, and to discuss, debate, and throw hissy fits over what we collectively consider the best films we’ve seen so far. As regards bigger releases, the year up to now has been, if we’re honest, a little so-so, with the blockbuster hopefuls ranging from the slightly disappointing to the outright dire (“Star Trek Into Darkness,” “The Great Gatsby,” “Pain & Gain,” “After Earth,” “Oblivion,” with “Iron Man 3” probably proving the best of the bunch to date). That said, in the smaller screens of your multiplex, and at the arthouse, a few gems have found their way through and there is a positive bevy of films we’ve been lucky enough to catch early, that are coming down the pike soon, that are so good they should drag up the base standard of the year by some margin.

Prince Avalanche
Emerging from nowhere to become a Sundance hit, as well as a step forward from the director's left-of-center mainstream work, David Gordon Green's comedy “Prince Avalanche” also finds him in league with past musical collaborators. The talents of Explosions In The Sky and “Take Shelter” composer David Wingo were announced last June, and as the film gears up for release this summer, you can take a look at what the soundtrack has in store.

The Playlist's 15 Most Anticipated Indies Of The Summer
So perhaps the blockbusting sturm und drang of “Iron Man 3” has you slavering for more KA-BLAMMO, in which case our Most Anticipated Summer Blockbusters is the article for you. If, however, you're already getting a slight tension headache at the prospect of weeks upon interminable weeks of tentpole releases and the din of clashing opinions that attends the redistribution of billions of dollars of wealth, never fear. The gods of counterprogramming have been especially kind this year, and there's a wide selection of upcoming, smaller-budgeted, lesser-distributed gems in which the only things that collide are intersecting lives, the only ticking time bombs are repressed emotions, the only things that break are hearts, and the only things that blow up are grandiose expectations, right in some sad sack's face. You are also much more likely to get some full-on nudity.

While technically speaking, David Gordon Green's indie "Prince Avalanche" is a remake of the Icelandic film "Either Way," to box it into that category alone is to miss the point. Shot pretty much in secret last year, and unveiled to great acclaim at Sundance, the filmmaker's latest is yet another sharp turn in a career that remains both exciting and unpredictable. And for those of you who couldn't make it to park city, the first trailer has arrived.
