THE JUDGE Hopes to Open to Packed Courtrooms

BBT in THE JUDGEOne of the highly anticipated films of the fall after its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, THE JUDGE is poised to rule with audiences nationwide this weekend.

An arrogant, big city defense attorney (Robert Downey, Jr.) is forced to return home to rural Indiana when his estranged father, a highly respected judge (Robert Duvall), is charged with murder. It turns out to be a real family thing when the prodigal son steps in to defend his tough and disappointed father in court.

Robert Downey, Jr. (nowadays the world's box office champ) has stepped into the role of producer as well as star, anticipating that his Team Downey production company will be able to put quality dramas in the forefront as an alternative to popcorn flicks about tough CEOs flying around in iron suits.

Once again, Billy Bob (playing the alliteratively named Dwight Dickham) and his acting mentor Robert Duvall will square off in their sixth film together, this time as prosecutor and defendant (respectively). They join a cast that is a cinematic and television embarassment of riches: Vera Farmiga, Vincent D'Onofrio, Dax Shepard, Leighton Meester, Balthazar Getty, Denis O'Hare, Ken Howard, David Kumholz, and Grace Zabriskie (yep, from ARMAGEDDON!). We're told to watch for a collapsible cup that Billy Bob uses to stay hydrated.

Billy Bob Signs on for a CRISIS

We've always wanted to see Billy Bob work with Sandra Bullock, and now we get our wish! Hisfineself has signed to co-star with Ms. Bullock, Scoot McNairy, and Anthony Mackie in OUR BRAND IS CRISIS, an intriguing, big-star treatment of a documentary about political fixers. Of particular interest to Planeteers is the fact that the original documentary concerned the behind-the-scenes advisory work of former Bill Clinton advisor James Carville (whom Billy Bob loosely portrayed in PRIMARY COLORS). IMHO (as Webmistress), I hope they keep the super-smart title.

Richard Linklater Gets a Movie about . . . Richard Linklater!

21 Years: Richard Linklater PosterHe directed Billy Bob in THE BAD NEWS BEARS. He has also directed SCHOOL OF ROCK, DAZED AND CONFUSED, SLACKER, this year's most highly acclaimed film (thus far) BOYHOOD, as well as the trilogy BEFORE SUNSET, BEFORE SUNRISE, and BEFORE MIDNIGHT. Now Richard Linklater finds himself the subject of a new documentary—21 YEARS: RICHARD LINKLATER.

Given the eclectic range of his 18 films (from family comedy to animation to experimental indie to romantic drama), Linklater is more than deserving of this career examination. And to think that this career began with him playing the slacker in the back of the cab in the movies SLACKER.

Billy Bob joins many of Linklater's other stars, including Ethan Hawke, Jack Black, Keanu Reeves, Matthew "Alright, Alright, Alright" McConaughey, Jason Reitman, Julie Delpy, Zac Efron, Kevin Smith, and Parker Posey.

BTW, how many of you want to see Billy Bob and Matthew McConaughey in a film directed by Kevin Smith? Worth considering!

The Boxmasters Sign with a New Label!
Double Album Due in 2015!

The BoxmastersDeep-fried excitement! Our favorite rockabilly tribe and Americana chart-toppers—The Boxmasters—have signed with 101 Ranch Records, which will release their new single later this year and their double album Somewhere Down the Road in 2015. The Boxmasters are the second act to be signed by the new Nashville, Tennessee record company, following singer Mark Collie. A known-accomplice of the Boxmasters, Collie's new album will feature collaborations with The Boxmasters. Way to rev up a label!

With the new double platter, expect more of The Boxmasters' special brew of rockabilly and British Invasion (which they have dubbed Modbilly). The first disc of Somewhere Down the Road promises to be veddy British Invasion, and the second to be Deep South spooky.

Hailing from Bellflower, California and fronted by our man Billy Bob on vocals and drums, The Boxmasters are rounded out by guitar gurus J.D. Andrew and Brad Davis and keyboard king Teddy Andreadis.

Even more exciting for Planeteers, one of our own, documentary filmmaker Zac Adams (NASHVILLE RISING) will direct the first two music videos! (The crowd goes wild!)
