Michelle Williams at Take This Waltz on Sunday
The 11th Annual Tribeca Film Festival came out swinging on its opening weekend with red carpets that were nothing short of fully loaded. From the much-hyped premiere of Jason Segal’s Five-Year Engagement to Freaky Deaky, Tribeca has finally found its form in bringing A-listers out and creating serious buzz around these opening screenings and with moviegoers. There was a lot of talk after Will Arnet showed up mugging his Blue Steel on the carpet for the premiere of Mansome Saturday night, fully GQ’d and headlining a murderer’s row of well-dressed, metrosexually flavoured men.

You awaken to a rabid 8 year old viciously chewing on your husband’s neck. A dark army, more than a million strong, bears down upon you and your kingdom. A masked man breaks in during the night and throws you out a window. A giant samurai statue engages you in battle, all the while feathery, cartoon owls fly around you. You are in the strange and violent world of Zack Snyder. Hang on; you’re in for a wild ride.

Zack Snyder, the director of the upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel, has had the strangest start to a career of any director in recent memory. Dawn of the Dead, 300, Watchmen, Le...

In "Splice," superstar genetic engineers Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) specialize in splicing DNA from different animals to create incredible new hybrids. Now they want to use human DNA in a hybrid that could revolutionize science and medicine.

Sarah Polley Describes Her Seth Rogen/Michelle Williams Film

Actor Sarah Polley earned a lot of acclaim for his first directorial feature, the Alzheimer’s drama Away from Her. For her second film, she tackled the relationships of younger couples. Take This Waltz stars Seth Rogen, Michelle Williams, Sarah Silverman and Luke Kirby.

“I guess it’s a romantic drama that has a lot of humor in it about relationships,” Polley said. “[It’s] about the endings and beginnings of relationships, and what we do when the newness of a relationship ends and what a relationship becomes.”

Rogen usually plays the “unconventional” leading man, where his appearance is so...

Adrien Brody's Sex Scene Turned Hollywood Off 'Splice'

6/3/2010 8:59pm EDT
Canadian moviemaker Vincenzo Natali had to seek French help to fund his new horror film "Splice," because Hollywood studio bosses were turned off by a sex scene between Adrien Brody and a creature his character had created.

The director admits he struggled to find interest among potential U.S. studio bosses - because no one wanted to watch Brody get intimate with a half-woman, half-creature, played by French actress Delphine Chaneac.

Natali says, "That scene was the reason I wanted to make the film and that's why it's such a miracle this film exists.

"No studio wanted to make it, because...

Horror Movie 'Splice' Was Inspired By Real Science

6/3/2010 9:34am EDT
This week’s sci-fi horror film Splice shows what can go wrong when scientists mess with DNA to create Dren (Delphine Chaneac), a hybrid of many species. It was inspired by actual science, and it comes out just weeks after Craig Venter unveiled his synthetic organism.

“It started when I saw a photo of this thing called The Vacanti Mouse, which you might recall is a mouse that appeared to have a human ear growing out of its back,” said writer/director Vincenzo Natali. “It was such a shocking image. It wasn’t a genetic experiment actually but it looked like one and I just intuitively felt som...
