SXSW: 5 Amazing Stories We Learned At The Veronica Mars World Premiere

SXSW: Yes, Zac Efron Really Is The Funniest Person In Neighbors
Stoller could trim the run time of Neighbors, as the back-and-forth between the warring parties goes from inspired to childish and more than a bit exhausting. But the film has multiple, huge laughs. It plays extremely well with a crowd who is plugged in to the anarchistic rivalry.
SXSW: Chef Is A Blast, Check Out Our Video Review Shot On A Food Truck!
Favreau’s movie is a return to his roots (and, depending on how you read it, a rejection of the popcorn blockbusters that have become his calling card in the days of Iron Man and Cowboys & Aliens).

Deliver Us From Evil Trailers Pit Eric Bana Against Satanic Possessions
Though he had a major stone-faced misstep with 2008’s remake The Day the Earth Stood Still, director Scott Derrickson proved his horror potential with 2005’s The Exorcism of Emily Rose and 2012’s Sinister, both of which took overused plotlines and gave them a wicked edge.

Carrie Fisher Is Supposedly Gonna Be On The Star Wars Set For How Long?
Of the three main stars of the original Star Wars trilogy, it has been Carrie Fisher who has been the most publicly wishy-washy on the subject of Star Wars Episode VII.

Noah Has Already Been Banned In A Bunch Of Countries
A certain segment of Christians might be upset about Noah’s message allegedly straying a bit from the holy source material, but that outrage is apparently nothing compared to the pushback so far in the Middle East. Prior to its release date, the movie has already been banned in several countries and analysts are predicting it will suffer the same censored fate in much of the region.
Pee-wee Herman's Bike Sells At Auction
Certifying that the bike is real, the auction also came with “an autographed photo of Paul Ruebens, a photo of him signing the photo, [a] letter/certificate of authenticity, [and a] Warner Bros. plans/spec sheet on the red cargo boxes.”
Our 4 Exclusive Hunger Games: Catching Fire Stills Take You Behind The Scenes Of 2013's Biggest Blockbuster
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was probably the biggest surprise for me at the movies in 2013. While I didn’t hate the first film in the franchise by any means, its sequel was able to expertly enhance the strongest aspects of the established world and new and interesting risks.

You'll notice that the important detail that is completely missing from all this is the identity of the character that Kim will be playing. For those of you who are just dying to know that information, however, I have some bad news. A Marvel rep has told the Korean news site Osen that who Kim will be playing in the movie is considered a spoiler and won't be announced as to not ruin the movie for fans.
Grand Budapest Hotel's Jeff Goldblum & Willem Dafoe Make Dreams Come True
Discussing Wes Anderson's new film, Grand Budapest Hotel, Jeff Goldblum and Willem Dafoe not only shared details on the inner workings of the film's construction, and Anderson's generous nature in sharing its inspirations, but also how the specific looks of their characters evolved and shaped their performances. But before all that, Jeff Goldblum made my day. Maybe my year. Possibly my decade.

Tommysaurus Rex follows Ely, a young boy who goes to his grandfather’s house for the summer to get his mind off of the traffic-involved death of his cherished dog Tommy.
