Right behind the new clip from Sundance player "The Runaways" we have a new set of photos for you to enjoy. Below you can see Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning) hanging out. There are nine others, which you can check out by clicking the image. Or right here.
I know all of you Twilighters are jazzed about seeing Kristen Stewart step into the shoes of Joan Jett in band biopic "The Runaways." You already got your first taste, compliments of the debut teaser trailer. Here's a brand-new look, the scene in which Jett and bandmate Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning) meet for the first time, by way of producer and band co-founder Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon). Enjoy!
Sundance contender "The Freebie" serves up the happy couple of Darren (Dax Shepard) and Annie (Katie Aselton). They've been living in married bliss for seven years when a series of events lead them to consider the possibility of trying something new and different to keep things exciting: each gets one "free" night of sex with a complete stranger. Sounds like a recipe for relationship disaster to me.
In the exclusive clip below, Shepard's Darren goes on at length about his views on relationships during a dinner party, one of the events that lead the couple to set up their agreed-upon one-night-stands.
Ryan Gosling fans haven't had much to get excited about lately. The "Notebook" star hasn't been seen on the big screen since 2007, in "Lars and the Real Girl." Well you'll see him again soon enough, especially if you're out at the Sundance Film Festival over the next week. Gosling will star with Michelle Williams in the sure-to-please-the-ladies romance flick "Blue Valentine."
The story follows Gosling and Williams as a married couple. In a bid to save their troubled relationship, the pair take a trip to a theme hotel and attempt to relive their life together, from their first meeting to the problems that plague them today. In the exclusive clip below, Gosling demonstrates in grand fashion that he's unhappy and wants some answers. But how far will he go?
If you watched the "Buried" trailer we posted an hour ago, then you know that there's more to the story than Ryan Reynolds' military contractor being buried alive in Iraq with nothing more than a cellphone and a lighter. He's actually a hostage, and he's supposed to use that phone to record a video for his captors. As you'll see in the exclusive clip below, they force him into complying by targeting someone close to him.
Looks like an intense flick. Commoners like us who are left at home will no doubt get a chance to see how director Rodrigo Cortés keeps the one-person, one-setting feature entertaining for the whole ride. You Sundancers won't have to wait so long; count yourselves lucky. Everyone else... enjoy the clip!
What do you get when you throw Ryan Reynolds into a coffin with nothing more than a cell phone and a lighter, then bury said coffin somewhere in Iraq? You get "Buried," from director Rodrigo Cortés, which lucky Sundance goers will be able to catch this week. Those of us stuck at home will have to make do with this exclusive trailer. Don't worry though-- something tells me that we'll be seeing this one go wide sooner or later.
The plot actually thickens a bit with this trailer. We now know that Reynolds' character has an out, and that the phone is there for a very specific reason. Check out the trailer and see for yourself.
Strange things are happening for hillbillies Tucker (Alan Tudyk) and Dale (Tyler Labine), the stars of writer/director Eli Craig's Sundance horror/comedy, "Tucker & Dale vs Evil." A group of college kids mistake the duo for killers when a bunch of their friends wind up dead. As we see in the clip below, Tucker and Dale aren't killers at all-- the kids are killing themselves! What could it all mean? You'll have to wait for the movie to find out. Check out the clip though... fun stuff.
One of the Sundance 2010 flicks to look forward to this year is "Splice," a sci-fi/horror written and directed by "Cube" writer Vincenzo Natali. In the below video, executive producer Guillermo del Toro, stars Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley, and others speak to the experience of working with Natali on "Splice." Enjoy this tiny taste of Sundance before the festival proper starts next week. Keep checking back with MTV Movies Blog for more Sundance news briefs and exclusives throughout the next two weeks.
I haven't heard an awful lot about "Night Catches Us," but researching it for this post has landed it squarely in the center of my radar. Writer/director Tanya Hamilton will bring this, her first feature, to Sundance next week. The movie stars Kerry Washington, Anthony Mackie, Jamie Hector and Wendell Pierce, who played Bunk on "The Wire." The movie will also feature a soundtrack from Philadelphia-based hip-hop outfit (and Jimmy Fallon house band) The Roots. Do you really need to know anymore?
Here's the synopsis, as detailed on the movie's website: Marcus (Anthony Mackie, “The Hurt Locker,” “Brother to Brother”) returns to the Philadelphia neighborhood where he came of age during the Black Power movement, protecting a dangerous secret in a struggle against the revolution he once embraced and rediscovering a forbidden love (Kerry Washington, “Ray,” “Lift”). Sounds like a winner to me. Can't wait. For now, enjoy this exclusive still...

Just what is a "visual album," anyway? Animal Collective, along with filmmaker Danny Perez, hope to educate their fans on the terminology when their film "ODDSAC" premieres at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT on January 26.
After over four years of collaboration, the band and Perez will present a film that features an original score of new songs that won't appear in any other form. "It was meant to be an open-ended operation of audio-video synthesis, the passing back and forth of visuals and sound so that each would inform the other and create an organic structure," the filmmaker said.
While it doesn't look like Animal Collective fans will be able to find an album available to download or buy in stores, the film will hit theaters in April and May and make its way to DVD in June.
In the meantime, enjoy an exclusive psychedelic image from the visual album "ODDSAC" and keep watching the Twitter feed for the latest updates.
