SXSW: YEEEE-HAWWWW!

All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

Postby cinephile2000 on Fri Feb 24, 2006 12:37 am

I am going to this festival from March the 11 to the 18 with my fellow zoners Igor and The Dark Knight. We went last year and thuroughly enjoyed it. Is anyone else going? Do yall want to meet up somewhere, possibly the line for V for Vendetta? This year is looking to be good just use this thread for all things SXSW.

Oh and the schedule is up.lhttp://2006.sxsw.com/film/screenings/date/2006-%2003-10.htm

i long for the day i may attend sxsw, but as a performer. but then again, there is a lot of bogus hype (imo) that goes along with sxsw. so in the event i never play there, i wont be too busted up about it. that being said, i have it on good authority that austin positively goes the fuck off during the festival. so cinephile, to you i say enjoy. austin is a very cool city, and you should have a blast.

Things That Hang from Trees is a classic American tale set in the oldest city in America. A unique, southern-gothic story about an unusual eight-year-old boy fighting to extract some good out of a life of instability. Things That Hang from Trees gives us Jesus on the intercom, a barely-breathing, naked mannequin for a mother, and a Live Oak that traps the local wayward trash, animal, vegetable, and mineral. The Live Oak provides a stage where boys bully boys, men work out their passions (for better and worse), the homeless linger, and the dead reside.

my friend Aaron wrote the novella and screenplay - its very good

/biased? probably.

I am so excited about SXSW this year! Went for the first time last year and had a blast! Of course, the fact that Grande Rojo is doing one of the panels is just an added perk! :)

I know I cant wait for that panel, 10 years of AICN, just awesome. Plus V for Vendetta, This Film is Not Yet Rated, Slither, and Thank You For Smoking. Not to mention lots of other movies that I don't know any buzz about but will most likely steal the show.

I am still working on my list of films and when I am going to see them at SXSW, but there's no way I am going to miss 10 years of AICN! :)

Two others that I will be seeing without a doubt are Slither and V for Vendetta.

SXSW 2014: GODZILLAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!

SXSW Unveils 2014 Lineup, Including World Debut of Seth Rogen's 'Neighbors'
1954's Godzilla: The Japanese Original, with a Q&A following with 2014 Godzilla director Gareth Edwards.

Jessica Chobot to Host GODZILLA Panel at SXSW!
Clarke Wolfe wrote:Did the premiere of the new Godzilla trailer yesterday cause your monster loving heart to flutter? Brace yourselves for a big announcement: Nerdist’s own Jessica Chobot will be hosting the Godzilla panel at SXSW next week! Chobot will be joined by director Gareth Edwards.

The panel will take place on Tuesday, March 11 at 9:30PM. In addition to a Q&A with Edwards, the panel will first feature a screening of the original 1954 classic Gojira, directed by Ishiro Honda. The version of the film being screened will feature 40 minutes of footage that were cut from the US release. Gojira celebrates its 60th anniversary this year.

For details on the panel and screening, click here.

Godzilla, directed by Gareth Edwards, opens on May 16.


Godzilla: The Japanese Original - SXSW 2014

New poster and trailer for the re-release of the 1954 'Godzilla' stomp online
All we hear is a scream, but that's enough
Drew McWeeny wrote:Now that my oldest son is getting more cognizant of what it is I do when I travel for business, there are some awkward conversations about why he can't just drop everything and come with me to do something that sounds like fun.

For example, he is currently exasperated with me because he isn't going to be allowed to join me in Austin, TX, for this year's SXSW Film Festival, where Rialto Pictures and Warner/Legendary are going to be presenting a special screening of the original 1954 Ishiro Honda film "Gojira," with director Gareth Edwards appearing afterwards for a Q&A that should also address this summer's remake of the film.

That's not actually technically accurate, though. I wouldn't call the new film a remake because, aside from the presence of the giant monster who breathes atomic fire, the two films really don't have much in common in terms of story. The new film tells its own story, and there's a lot more going on here than just one giant monster destroying things.

The 1954 film was, of course, substantially altered when it was first released in America, and while we've had restorations of the original Japanese cut before, Rialto seems very excited about the notion of a theatrical release. They've just released a brand-new poster and trailer for the release, and we're happy to be able to share them with you.

The trailer, which is embedded above, makes strong use of the Akira Ifukube score and one of the most iconic monster sounds of all time, and there's no actual footage. That's an interesting choice, one that trades on just how well-known those elements are.

While my kids won't be able to join me for the special SXSW presentation, which I'm excited to see, I'll make sure that they get a chance to see it theatrically if they want to in LA. The original one-sheet for the classic film is the only movie poster they have hanging in their bedroom, and Godzilla is such a big part of their fantasy lives. It's a great year to be a fan of Toho's biggest icon, and I look forward to this as well as the new movie.
