Look, there’s no two ways about the fact that James Franco playing mustachioed twins for The Wire creator David Simon’s ‘70s New York porn drama is funny. There is no ceiling on “Peak Franco,” and these first official photos from The Deuce certainly aren’t about to find one.

Donnie Darko, perhaps the cult-iest of cult movies, made barely a ripple when it premiered in theaters in 2001, but since then has become a cult classic phenomenon, an essential film for disenfranchised teens and time travel aficionados alike. And, like, many cult classics these days, it’s getting a theatrical re-release, this time in glorious 4K resolution.

HBO had plenty to announce by the recent TCA press tour (as well to keep quiet), and now some more good news has flown in under the wire. The network has handed a series order to a ‘70s New York porn drama from The Wire creator David Simon, rounded out by James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal. No, we’ve made none of this up.

We’re experiencing something of an awesome trend right now, as more and more women in Hollywood are starting to speak out about the rampant sexism in the industry — Charlize Theron, Kathryn Bigelow, Kristen Stewart and many more have been voicing their opinions, and now you can add Maggie Gyllenhaal to that excellent list. Her revelation may seem a bit surprising, but it’s actually a pretty common — but still totally awful — issue in Hollywood.

'Frank' Trailer: Michael Fassbender Wears a Mask, Starts a Rock Band

'Frank' is a movie that has the audacity to cast a known face like Michael Fassbender in the lead role and then hide him in a giant, silly-looking fake head for the entire running time. In other words, it's our kind of weird. The film was a big hit at the Sundance Film Festival -- where we gave it a sparkling review -- and with the first 'Frank' trailer, you can see why. This movie looks crazy and, more importantly, crazy good.

'Frank' Review

by Jordan Hoffman January 18, 2014 @ 3:41 PM
Mixing genres never works, especially surrealist comedy and character-based drama. Indie filmmakers often try it, and the seesaw of quirk and forced pathos is what makes people roll their eyes and wish for "a real movie." But once in a while it does work - and when it does, as with Lenny Abrahamson's 'Frank,' the result is something of a miracle.
'Frank,' co-written by Peter Straughan ('Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy') and Jon Ronson (the journalist/author of 'The Men Who Stare at Goats' and 'The Psychopath Test') and starring Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Scoot McNairy and, wearing that ridiculous papier-mache head, Michael Fassbender, is a readymade cult classic.

Maggie Gyllenhaal, despite all of the successful movies she's been in and the long career she's had, always seems to be a surprise announcement when she's cast in movies. Not because she shouldn't be in them, but because she doesn't seem to be in enough of them. Now her fans have one more reason to go to the theater with this recent casting announcement.

Secondly, how do you market that films to an unsuspecting public? 'Hysteria' obviously solved problem number one, but how do they dance around problem number two? Well, check out the trailer yourself.
