Video: Intros

  • Special Intro by Errol Morris for THE UNKNOWN KNOWN
    He's a natural for the Badass Hall of Fame. After all, he's the guy who made Werner Herzog eat his shoe. And he's the guy who invented the Interrotron, an interview system that allows his subjects to maintain eye contact with him while still looking directly into the camera lens. He helped get a man off Death Row with The Thin Blue Line. And most of all Errol Morris has spent his whole career following his own path and his own vision, telling the stories that spoke to him most personally.

  • Fantastic Fest and Fandango present: COMING AT YA! 3D
    Now that 3D is back, seemingly to stay, we return to the great 3D Boom of the '80s and the film that started the whole ball rolling, COMIN' AT YA!, now presented in a state of the art digital restoration. This is the 3D movie that does exactly what you want a 3D movie to do. It hits you with a ludicrous barrage of flying fists, flaming arrows, boobs, and everything else you can imagine - including a truly unforgettable 3D baby diaper changing scene. There's a contagious spirit of pure fun at work and when the film is over you'll want to get back in line and watch it all over again. Though it came at the tail end of the spaghetti western cycle, COMIN' AT YA! showcases the work of two of the leading lights in Italian westerns, Ferdinando Baldi and Tony Anthony. Baldi was a 30 year veteran of the Italian film industry and had produced credible serious westerns like TEXAS ADDIO, but he really found his true calling when he began working with American writer/ producer/actor Tony Anthony. The two came to specialize in humorous westerns that were as much Chuck Jones as Sergio Leone. In the wake of the spectacularly popular TRINITY films, Baldi and Anthony brought a sophisticated sense of film time and a mastery of screen gags that set them apart - Anthony in particular knows how to play it with just the right amount of seriousness. COMIN' AT YA! is particularly imaginative - their gags were given more room to roam with the addition of a third dimension. It's pure entertainment, which is exactly what Anthony and Baldi intended. And now the film looks better than they could have ever imagined with a stunning digital restoration. It's brighter, sharper and clearer than ever, so every 3D gag is seen in crystal clarity.
  • Fantastic Fest and Fandango presents Introducing “EXTRATERRESTRIAL”
    Director Nacho Vigalondo, Producer Nahikari Ipiña, Actor Julián Villagrán, Director of Photography Jon D. Domínguez, and Art Director Idoia Esteban live in person! Julio wakes up with one hell of a hangover. As he gradually takes in his surroundings, it's obvious he's not in his own bed. He introduces himself to Julia, his apparent hookup from the night before, and they go through the typically awkward conversation. Julia is clearly trying to get him out of her apartment as soon as possible. But as he gathers his belongings they realize that things are much too quiet, even for a Sunday. A quick trip to the balcony reveals absolutely no one on the street. They gaze off into the distance and see a huge spaceship looming on the horizon. While they struggle to understand what they're seeing, Julia's neighbor Angel stops by. Angel brings news of the alien invasion, and it becomes apparent that he's obsessed with Julia and maybe even spying on the apartment. When Julia's live-in boyfriend Carlos comes home, things become even more complicated. The four acquaintances must try to find a way to survive threats from both outside and within, and maybe make some sense of their situation. Fantastic Fest favorite Nacho Vigalondo is back with his second feature film. EXTRATERRESTRIAL showcases Nacho's sure-handed direction and tight pacing, bringing the audience in and then keeping things moving steadily towards the conclusion. The acting is top-notch, bringing to life a witty, sharply-written script. Engaging and funny, EXTRATERRESTRIAL is a worthy follow up to 2007's wildly successful TIMECRIMES.
