Hailing from Titmouse studios (which brought us awesome Adult Swim shows like METALOCALYPSE and VENTURE BROTHERS) comes a story of two dim-witted thirty-year old Hollywood wannabes (voiced by  Patton...

Trailer released for Dennis Hopper's final role in The Last Film Festival

I miss Dennis Hopper .

Well, the next movie I saw him in was SPEED where he gave an awesome performance as the villain, which also...

Amber Heard is a sexy femme fatale in the early trailer for Syrup

I have been waiting patiently for Max Barry's novels to make their way to the big screen, but SYRUP was not the one I thought would get made first.
