big american party

Pretty sure Shadow would be just fine with Czernobog forgetting about him instead of crushing his skull.


With so many films opening over the holiday, here’s a quick rundown of just a few of the Sundance connections.

Amy Adams stars in Tim Burton’s Big Eyes.  Adams first attended the Festival in 2000 with Psycho Beach Party, then Junebug in 2005, and most recently in 2008 with Sunshine Cleaning.  Adam’s co-star in Sunshine Cleaning, Emily Blunt stars in Into the Woods with Anna Kendrick, who made her Sundance debut in 2007 with Rocket Science.  The class of 2007 also includes Sienna Miller, who starred in Interview and can be seen in Clint Eastwood’s new film American Sniper with co-star Bradley Cooper, who first attended the Festival in 2012 with The Words.  Ava DuVernay’s Middle of Nowhere premiered during the 2012 Festival and starred David Oyelowo.  Oyelowo stars in DuVernay’s new film Selma.

Big Eyes, Into the Woods, American Sniper, and Selma all open on Thursday, December 25.
