I had little idea of what to expect going into a viewing of Roman Coppola’s A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, having only seen these suggestive posters.  What I found was a surprisingly charming tale of a gifted man obsessed with beautiful possessions who is having trouble letting go of his latest love.  It was the cast that really drew me in, sporting Charlie Sheen, Jason Schwartzman, Patricia Arquette, Katheryn Winnick, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Aubrey Plaza and Bill Murray, plus the written and directorial effort from the Oscar-nominated Roman Coppola.  It’s a fun little gem of a picture you probably missed in theaters, so hit the jump to check out my review of the film on Blu-ray to see if it’s right for you.

A new red band trailer for writer/director Roman Coppola’s comedy A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III has been released online, and it is decidedly not safe for work.  The film stars Charlie Sheen as a successful graphic designer whose fame and fortune have made him irresistible to women.  After his girlfriend breaks up with him, he heads into a downward spiral that forces him to look back on his failed romantic history.  This trailer takes the title to heart, as Sheen introduces a literal glimpse inside his mind where we see plenty of breasts, butts, beer, cheeseburgers, cars, and everything in between.  It’s, well, quite a trip.

A couple new images from writer/director Roman Coppola’s upcoming film A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III have emerged.  The pic stars Charlie Sheen as a successful graphic designer whose fame and fortune have made him irresistible to women.  After his girlfriend breaks up with him, he heads into a downward spiral that forces him to look back on his failed romantic history.  We previously saw a few images that focused on Sheen’s character, but this promising new batch gives us a look at Cowboy Bill Murray, an afro’d Jason Schwartzman, and the very funny Aubrey Plaza.  Based solely on these pictures, I’m already itching for a spinoff focusing solely on Schwartzman’s character.

Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, Moonrise Kingdom is the charming, sweet and sometimes melancholy story of two 12-year-olds, named Sam (Jared Gilman) and Suzy (Kara Hayward), who fall in love and run away together into the wilderness.  As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is heading in from off-shore, turning the peaceful island community and all of its quirky inhabitants upside down.

At the film’s press day, co-writer Roman Coppola, who also served as a producer and co-writer on The Darjeeling Limited, talked about his collaborations with two-time Academy Award nominated filmmaker Wes Anderson, the genesis of this particular project, creating these unique young characters, and how much he was on set during filming.  He also talked about his next film, A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, and that he hopes he has the opportunity to make more of his own features, in the future. Check out what he had to say after the jump.

Aubrey-Plaza-Safety-Not-Guaranteed-The-To-Do-List-interview-slice

One of the many films that premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was director Colin Trevorrow‘s Safety Not Guaranteed.  Written by Derek Connolly, the film’s about a trio of magazine employees investigate a classified ad that seeks a partner for time travel. One employee develops feelings for the paranoid but compelling loner and tries to discover what he’s really up to.  It’s based on a real ad that was passed around the internet in 2005 and the movie stars Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass, Jake Johnson and Karan Soni.  Shortly after premiering, FilmDistrict bought the film, so you can look forward to seeing it at some point in the future.  For more on the film, you can read Matt’s review.

After seeing the movie, I got to sit down with Aubrey Plaza for an extended interview. We talked about being at Sundance, karaoke, what’s the last video game she’s played (Batman: Arkham City and Braid), 3D gaming, how she got involved in Safety Not Guaranteed and what it’s about, and what it was like to watch the film for the first time with a big crowd at Sundance.  In addition, she talked about Parks and Recreation, working with Bill Murray on director Roman Coppola‘s A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, and director Maggie Carey‘s The To-Do List (aka The Hand Job), in which she plays a recent high school graduate intent on losing her virginity before going off to college.  She said filming some of it bordered on pornography.  Hit the jump to watch the interview.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead SMASHED and ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE HUNTER interview slice sundance

One of the many films that premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was director James Ponsoldt‘s Smashed.  Written by Susan Burke and James Ponsoldt, Smashed is about a young married couple – played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Aaron Paul – who are brought together by booze.  When Winstead’s character (Kate) decides to get sober, it creates its own set of problems.  While the film and subject matter could have easily drifted into a Lifetime movie of the week, what makes Smashed work is a career best performance by Winstead and fantastic work from the rest of the cast which includes Octavia Spencer, Nick Offerman, and Megan Mullally. For more on the film, here’s Matt’s review.

Shortly after seeing the film, I got to sit down with Winstead for an exclusive interview.  We talked about what it means to be a part of Sundance, how she got involved in Smashed and what it’s about, how she went about creating a three dimensional character, karaoke, working with director Timur Bekmambetov on Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and who she plays, Roman Coppola‘s A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, and what she has coming up.  Hit the jump to watch.
