Day two of SXSW film already? After Jake Gyllenhaal brought Congress to a halt last night for the Source Code premiere, tonight Rainn Wilson goes Super at the Paramount.
Spotlight Premieres, U.S. Premiere
What they said: "I wrote the first draft of Super in one crazy, whirlwind day on April 2, 2002. I know the exact date because I looked up that first draft the other day because I was really interested in what was in there. I was originally writing it as a short film, and then it began to take on a life of its own." – Director James Gunn
Incendiary: The Willingham Case
Lone Star States, World Premiere
What they said: "The fact-finder, the jury, once they make up their mind about that evidence, the appeals court [doesn't] look at that evidence again. And the governor took the position that, well, the courts have all looked at this. So it's fine. And that's a real problem." – Director Joe Bailey Jr.
Emerging Visions, World Premiere
11:15am, Alamo Ritz 1
What we said: "Kyle Smith and his pal Morgan Beck drove a decommissioned police cruiser off a ramp, crashed it into a concrete wall, and then sat dumbfounded as the car went up in flames. It was all in pursuit of the short-lived 2009 ABC game show Crash Course and the crazy adventures friends dive into together."
