Samuel Goldwyn Films has announced that Richard Kelly's Southland Tales will hit theaters on November 9 in partnership with Destination Films and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group.




The film, which debuted at last year's Cannes Film Festival and has

since been completed, stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Sarah Michelle

Gellar, Seann William Scott, Justin Timberlake, Mandy Moore, Cheri

Oteri, Kevin Smith and Amy Poehler among others, with original music by

Moby, a music sequence by Timberlake and a soundtrack that includes The

environmental disaster. Johnson will star as Boxer Santaros, an action

star stricken with amnesia whose life intertwines with Krysta Now

Richard Kelly Talks "Southland Tales" Changes

07-28-2007 (19:30:42)



Kelly, director of the upcoming movie "Southland Tales," told Sci Fi

Wire that he has considerably altered the film, which wrapped

production nearly two years ago. After completion, Kelly took his film

to the Cannes Film Festical and had to face a disastrous critical



"[We made] a lot of editorial changes in terms of restructuring the order of scenes," Kelly said in an interview at Comic-Con. "We

re-recorded all of Justin Timberlake's voice-over, and we added, like,

90 new visual-effects shots. It was truly like a work of progress." Kelly added that the movie has been cut by 20-25 minutes from its initial cut, which was nearly three hours long.


"Southland Tales" stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Seann William Scott and Sarah Michelle Gellar

in a multilayered story on the eve of an indeterminate apocalypse in a

near-future Los Angeles. The film is now scheduled to hit theaters on November 9th.

Southland Tales Stills, Trailer Info

Who says there's no originality left in Hollywood?
by Jeff Giles | August 24, 2007

It's got what might be the largest cast and most difficult-to-describe
storyline of any major motion picture this year, so of course, Richard Kelly's Southland Tales is being observed closely by many film lovers as it gets closer to its November release date. FirstShowing has been down in the trenches all along, and is now offering some new details about Southland's trailer -- and a pile of stills from the movie.

First, some background on Southland Tales, for anyone who hasn't been following along. The film's synopsis describes it like so:

Director Richard Kelly follows up cult favorite DONNIE DARKO
with this sprawling epic about a futuristic version of Los Angeles that
harnesses the power of the ocean to produce energy. The eclectic cast
includes The Rock, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Justin Timberlake, Mandy Moore, and Janeane Garofalo.

Sounds a little strange -- and it doesn't even get into the appearances of Seann William Scott as twin brothers, Wallace Shawn as a villain named Baron Von Westphalen, a blond Jon Lovitz, and Kevin Smith as a legless vet. Oh, and a musical performance by Timberlake.

Clearly, this is one of 2007's must-see films, and if you're one of the people who have been anxiously awaiting the trailer, FirstShowing
has good news -- according to Richard Kelly himself, it will be
surfacing on television and the Web during the first week of September.
That's just around the corner (check your calendars if you don't
believe us), but if you're the impatient type, and are willing to
settle for photos, follow the link below for a gander at some shots
from the movie.

Richard Kelly's Future Projects

09-17-2007 (14:00:32)



Kelly, who is currently looking to release his long-gestating

"Southland Tales," has joined producing partner Sean McKittrick and

financier Ted Hamm to form Darko Entertainment. The entity, named for

the writer-helmer's cult hit "Donnie Darko," will aim to back modestly

budgeted, director-driven films.


First up is "Dirty Girl,"

scheduled to start in November under the direction of Abe Sylvia. Also

under the Darko banner is"The Box," a psychological thriller starring Cameron Diaz that is in pre-production.


With the Darko venture, McKittrick said, "Our

goal is to get behind filmmakers with unique voices and take advantage

of the Darko brand to help independent films reach a much wider



Kelly's "Southland Tales," a rough version of which premiered in Cannes two years ago, has been retooled and is now set to hit theaters on November 9th.

Official "Southland Tales" Trailer

09-20-2007 (19:30:32)



promised, we now have the trailer for the new, re-cut version of

"Southland Tales." It was kind of difficult to understand what exactly

was happening, and overall, the trailer could have been better. If this

is how the world ends, why is an actor (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson)

running around on the beach?


"Southland Tales" is set in the

futuristic landscape of Los Angeles on July 4, 2008, as it stands on

the brink of social, economic and environmental disaster. Boxer

Santaros (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) is an action star who's stricken with amnesia. His life intertwines with Krysta Now (Sarah Michelle Gellar), an adult film star developing her own reality television project, and Ronald Taverner (Seann William Scott), a Hermosa Beach police officer who holds the key to a vast conspiracy.


Many people are pretty excited to finally see the film, since Kelly

was the man that gave us "Donnie Darko." But also because "Southland

Tales" has gone through many delays, negative reviews from the Cannes

Film Festival showing, and re-shoots after Sony put in extra funding

for some much needed special effects. At this point, it is scheduled to

hit theaters on November 9th.

This past weekend Southland Tales screened at the Fantastic Fest in Austin, and the film got some pretty damn good reviews...






AICN: http://www.aintitcool.com/node/34146


"If you want a simple tale, look elsewhere. This is the type of

end of the world conspiracy that you’d expect to come out of Terry

Southern or Hunter S Thompson or Kurt Vonnegut. It concerns alternate

realities, subversive sub-cultures, neo-politic-paranoia and religious

doomsday soothsaying."




TwitchFilm: http://twitchfilm.net/site/view/fantastic-fest-report-southland-tales-review#extended


"If Darren Aronofsky’s The Fountain was too obscure and cerebral

for mainstream audiences then Southland Tales, a more challenging film

by far, is destined to die a quick and unpleasant death at the box

office. That said, for those who make it through the initial overload

of information and can latch on to Kelly’s vibe, Southland is also a

dazzlingly smart, funny, and engaging work, one that fuses political

fears with apocalyptic religiosity and techno-dread and wraps it all in

a glossy, colorful package. Southland Tales is far from the mess it has

been made out to be, a work that rewards as much as it challenges and

succeeds in finding the human, emotional core lurking beneath all of

its high concepts."

"I like a movie I can watch with a group of friends, then head

off to a coffeehouse or bar and have an interesting discussion about

what exactly happened and what it all meant. Southland Tales will have

us debating through dinner, drinks and dessert ... maybe for several

"Southland Tales” I liked. It’s a challenging film for sure but

its essentially “Donnie Darko” on a global scale with a really engaging

post 9-11 discussion. Kelly’s strong voice of cinema and the stellar

ensemble acting make up for an often much more complex than perhaps it

needs to be film."

Sarah Michelle Gellar Defends "Southland Tales"

11-06-2007 (14:30:32)



Michelle Gellar, who stars in Richard Kelly's upcoming "Southland

Tales," told Sci Fi Wire that the movie has changed since its

disastrous debut at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006, but not that much.


"I think that's also a misconception, too, in terms of how many changes have been made," Gellar explained. "I

really do think the movie sort of got an unfair rap from Cannes.

Looking back, we all sort of realized, the movie takes place in Los

Angeles: It is a story about here, about us, and we truly believe it

should have been shown for the first time here. I think it was really

the wrong audience. If you're at Cannes, they're looking for a

different kind of movie. And that's not what this movie is."


Since then, director Kelly

(Donnie Darko) has trimmed the film, added several scenes to clarify

the complicated narrative and included new visual-effects shots,

including a new ending. "I think those were edits that were always going to happen," Gellar said.


Gellar added that "the true fans, the people that are the 'Donnie Darko' fans, that are my fans, Dwayne's fans, I think they're going to enjoy it."


The film is scheduled to hit theaters on November 14th.
