Kick-Ass Opening for SXSW

The Auteurs Daily


Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass will be opening this year's South by Southwest Film Conference and Festival (SXSW), running March 12 through 20. At Twitch, Rodney Perkins, who saw a rough cut at Harry Knowles's Butt-Numb-a-Thon in Austin last month, calls the adaptation of Mark Millar's comic "an ultra-violent superhero homage that lives up to its name."

Aaron Katz (Dance Party USA, Quiet City) returns to SXSW with Cold Weather; click the title for the trailer.

Elektra Luxx, Sebastian Gutierrez's sequel to Women in Trouble, sees its world premiere in Austin. "Elektra Luxx ([Carla] Gugino) is a porn star whose life is turned upside down when she discovers she's pregnant," writes Variety's Michael Fleming. What's more, "Gutierrez is planning a third installment tentatively titled Women in Ecstasy."

James Franco's Saturday Night documents the making of an episode of SNL; Wes Orshoski spent three years making Lemmy, a doc on Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister; and SXSW presents the first public screening of Hubble 3D, an IMAX ride into deep space.

Katz’s film looks great!
It does, and someone’s gone and tweeted that it’s his “best yet,” so… the first reviews are encouraging!
Very glad more “indie” comics are getting the recognition they deserve.
