The sneaker culture is a rabid and fascinating one, with many obsessive tennis shoe freaks coming together in the first trailer for Sneakerheadz. The film has received the Documentary Spotlight at SXSW, and will premiere there this year with four screenings starting on Monday, March 16. To check out the full schedule: clickHere
Sneakerheadz sets out to ask one of the most challenging questions facing any shoe collector: To Rock or Stock? Sneakerheads will do almost anything to get their hands on a unique pair of kicks, going to such extreme lengths as hiding in trash cans to score a pair of Retro Jordan 11s to camping for days in sub zero temperatures for the latest Nike Foamposites. How did sneakers become as prized as collectable art? From the shares of Cali to the congested streets of Tokyo, Sneakerheadz examines the cultural influence of sneaker collecting around the world and delves into a subculture whose proud members don't just want to admire art, they want to wear it.
Directed and produced by Academy Award nominated producer David T. Friendly (Little Miss Sunshine) and award-winning music and video producer Mick Partridge, the feature documentary explores the growing phenomenon of "sneaking collecting and showcasing," featuring cultural icons such as Rob Dyrdek, Samantha Ronson, Mike Epps, and Wale. If you're not heading to SXSW this year, you can get a sneak peek at Sneakerheadz in the recently released trailer:
Among the 51 titles named so far are 'The Adderall Diaries' with James Franco, Amber Heard, Ed Harris and Cynthia Nixon; and 'Franny' with Richard Gere, Dakota Fanning and Theo James.
You want zombies? Dead Rising: Watchtower has zombies! Legendary and Crackle have released the first clip from this video game adaptation, which finds a pair of roving reporters dealing with the first very scary stages of a viral outbreak that turns human beings into flesh-starved animated corpses. What starts out as an innocent seizure soon turns into a blood-splattered rage attack. Will Jesse Metcalfe be able to make it out alive?
Dead Rising: Watchtower takes place during a large-scale zombie apocalypse. When a mandatory government vaccine fails to stop the infection from spreading, the four leads must evade infection while also pursuing the root of the epidemic, with all signs pointing to a government conspiracy. Politics, public paranoia, and media coverage play an important role in the story's narrative, which soon turns into a vicious bloodbath of terror.
Dead Rising: Watchtower is debuting only on Crackle starting March 27. Joining Jesse Metcalfe for this wild ride are Rob Riggle, Virginia Madsen, Keegan Connor Tracy, Harley Morenstein and Dennis Haysbert. With the Dead Rising game franchise selling over 7.6 million copies, you can be sure that this will be a streaming hit!

Following the first trailer released back in October, A24 Films has released the second trailer for Ex Machina, arriving in theaters April 10. Before Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson can be seen in December's highly-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the actors play much different roles in this sci-fi thriller about the world's first truly-advanced piece of A.I. technology. Alex Garland, writer of 28 Days Later and Sunshine, makes his directorial debut with the stylish and cerebral thriller, Ex Machina.
Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer at an internet-search giant, wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company's brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test-charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan's latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated--and more deceptive--than the two men could have imagined.
In addition, A24 Films has also released a new poster for Ex Machina, which co-stars Corey Johnson, Deborah Rosan, Evie Wray and Sonoya Mizuno. For those heading to the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, Ex Machina will have its world premiere out of competition on Saturday, March 14. Take a look at the latest traielr and one-sheet below.

The British retiree comedy humbled the erotic adaptation in its third week.
Avengers: Age of Ultron star Robert Downey Jr. kicked off Marvel's daily reveal of new character posters last week, which came with a message that something big was going to be announced in eight days, which is this Thursday, March 6. As we found out yesterday, the third trailer for this Marvel Phase Two sequel will be revealed on that date, airing on ABC during the series premiere of American Crime. Today, the poster campaign continues with Chris Evans revealing the Captain America one-sheet through his Twitter page.
In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
With today's one-sheet, we now have the full Avengers team of posters, with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). With two days left before the trailer premiere, it's possible we will also get new one-sheets featuring Ultron (James Spader) and Vision (Paul Bettany), or perhaps the sibling duo Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). Or, perhaps we'll get all of the above. What characters do you hope are featured on tomorrow's posters?March 3, 2015

One week ago today, producer Adi Shankar released the latest entry in his Bootleg Universe short film collection, Power/Rangers, which ended up being ensnared in legal complications and was removed for a short period of time, before returning online over the weekend. Today, Adi Shankar keeps his Bootleg Universe going by tackling the James Bond franchise with his new fan film In Service of Nothing. The short is actually presented as an animated pre-visualization for a live-action movie, set in the present day but following Sean Connery's 007, with Christopher Gee voicing/impersonating Bond, decades after he retired and MI6 forgave his transgressions. Here's how the short is described on Adi Shankar's YouTube page.
"In this Unauthorized "Bootleg Universe" One-Shot, an aging James Bond struggles to find his place in a self absorbed world without boarders, where service to one's nation is an antiquated concept. Presented to you as a pre-visulation motion storyboard.
The producer also had this to say about In Service of Nothing:
"I always wondered what would happen to James Bond in his old age and in our borderless world. I'm not referring to the Bond we've seen in recent films, that incarnation is closer to Jason Bourne meets Batman. I'm referring to the swanky, alcoholic, serial killer, with mommy issues that we saw in films like Dr. No and Goldfinger. How would he find a sense of purpose in a self absorbed and impersonal modern world once his license to kill has been revoked?"
Tyler Gibb wrote and directed In Service of Nothing, with Adi Shankar producing and the voice cast rounded out by Fryda Wolff, Damien C. Haas, Gregory Hardigan and Rachel Kimsey. In addition to the short film, we also have a behind-the-scenes video with Adi Shankar explaining why he wanted to add James Bond to his Bootleg Universe. Take a look at both the full In Service of Nothing and the featurette below. Be warned, In Service of Nothing is very graphic and not safe for work (NSFW).
