The midnight movie slate at Sundance is always an uneven grab bag of red-meat offerings: a festival within the festival, one whose titles are selected less on the basis of quality, star-power, or prestige than on how much hooting and hollering they might provoke from a late-night, sleep-deprived crowd. This year, the…

The Producers Guild Awards certainly aren’t the least exciting event of the time period we like to refer to as Awards Season, but it’s hard to ignore that they’re regularly overshadowed by the Screen Actors Guild Awards—which are happening tonight, as usual, just a day after the PGAs.

A teaser trailer for a new, previously completely-unheard-of movie arrived on the internet yesterday, and we have to admit that we’re stumped: Is Danny McBride actually starring in a bizarrely conceived, 30-years-later sequel to Crocodile Dundee, or is this some sort of elaborate joke?
