Mark Duplass on How to Get a Movie Made In 2014

"We're doing it right now," barked Mark Duplass when I suggested that he should teach a class on how to get a film made in today's fractured system. Duplass has been writing, directing and producing a steady stream of movies since 2005 that includes 'Cyrus,' 'Jeff Who Lives at Home,' and this week's new release, 'The One I Love.' What's remarkable about this run is that his movies have never put up <i>huge</i> numbers at the box office -- the indie hit 'Safety Not Guaranteed' grossed just over $4 million in theaters -- yet his movies are profitable enough that he gets to keep making movies. What are Duplass' secrets? Here, Duplass breaks down, step by step, how to stay sustainable in today's Hollywood.

Mark Duplass Does Not Want to Be a Superhero (Unless He’s Asked)

Mark Duplass is an interesting fellow. It's not really accurate to describe him as "famous" -- even he admits that he can walk around unbothered pretty much everywhere, and that's exactly the way he likes it. It was only in 'Tammy' -- a movie that he has a lot of opinions on why it didn't work -- did he start to feel the pangs of fame. And he didn't like that feeling one bit and wants no part of your 'Guardians of the Galaxy' or Marvel or 'Star Wars' type movies. Well ... that is unless, of course, someone actually asked him to do one of those types of movies.

One Last Conversation With Marilyn Burns, the Late Star of ‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’

Marilyn Burns, best known for playing the role of Sally in Tobe Hooper's horror classic 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre,' passed away in her home yesterday. She was 65. The best way to honor her memory is to share my interview with her, the last she ever participated in. Portions of this conversation will appear in our larger article on the anniversary of 'Texas Chain Saw Massacre' (which is coming soon), but this format better shows off her wit and graciousness. It's a peek into the memories of a woman who was a key player in not just horror history, but movie history.

‘Into the Storm’ Star Richard Armitage on Tornadoes, ‘The Hobbit 3′ and His Lost Role in ‘Star Wars’

Warner Bros.

Armitage -- who kinda, sorta practices method acting; depending on your definition of method acting -- has the final chapter of 'The Hobbit' trilogy coming out this December, 'The Battle of Five Armies.' Here, Armitage, who plays the dwarf Thorin Oakenshield, reflects on what he thinks the legacy of this trilogy will be in comparison to 'The Lord of the Rings.' Armitage also dares us to find him somewhere in 'Star Wars: Episode I -- The Phantom Menace' -- a movie that he is in -- and gives us some clues on how to do so, but even he's not exactly sure if he's seen himself.

‘Legend of Korra’ Interview: Janet Varney and David Faustino Tease a “Ridiculous” Season Finale and Book 4

'The Legend of Korra' has gone through a lot of changes, which coincidentally happens to be the subtitle for Book 3 -- as Korra adjusts to a world that lives in tandem with the spirits and Team Avatar looks to recruit more Airbenders, four new villains have emerged, and all the remaining episodes have ditched the TV medium to be aired online at Nick.com.

Following the 'Legend of Korra' panel at Comic-Con 2014, we caught up with the faces (or, rather, the voices) of this series, Janet Varney (Korra) and David Faustino (Mako), to get a better idea of how these changes will impact the rest of the season, as well as the already-filmed Book 4.

Marvel’s Kevin Feige on ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy,’ ‘The Inhumans’ and Edgar Wright

It's kind of remarkable that Marvel Studios have already green-lit a sequel to 'Guardians of the Galaxy' -- a movie that, itself, doesn't come out for another few days. But this says less about Marvel's confidence that 'Guardians' will make money (and, let's not kid ourselves, it certainly will), but more about how the Guardians fit in with the larger story Marvel is trying to tell with the episodic nature of its films. And this episodic nature might just be what doomed Edgar Wright's version of 'Ant-Man' -- as opposed to it just being "too weird," which Marvel studio head Kevin Feige has denied.
