Best known for big studio comedies like “American Pie” and “Little Fockers,” director Paul Weitz is going indie with his new feature “Being Flynn,” an adaptation of the book “Another Bullshit Night in Suck City.” Starring Robert De Niro and Paul Dano, the pic spins the tale of a young man (Dano) who encounters his father (De Niro) in a homeless shelter, where he’s become a con man and self-professed poet. Sensing potential trouble ahead, Dano wrestles with exactly how close he should get to his absentee dad.

We caught up with Weitz for our Call-In Commentary series, where filmmakers provide narration to their movie trailer. In it, find out how the film is built on layers, why it’s advantageous to advertise yourself as the director of “About a Boy,” and more. “Being Flynn” opens in limited release today.

Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie” trailer with Tim and Eric

You probably wouldn’t be surprised to learn that “Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie” is just as absurd as the rest of their trademark comedy; after all, the pair traffic in WTF-brand humor. And that’s precisely what we get with the duo’s first feature film, where two guys (natch) get a billion dollars to make their first movie, and then proceed to blow it all. Fresh out of funds, they do the natural thing…buy a failing shopping mall that’s ravaged by an angry wolf.

With all that in mind, we asked Tim and Eric to record a Call-In Commentary for us, where filmmakers provide narration to their movie trailer. They agreed, and one technical malfunction later, we have the below video to share with you. We could try to describe what happens, but it’s better if you just take a gander below. “Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie” opens in theaters tomorrow.

Call-In Commentary: Watch the “Boy” trailer with writer-director Taika Waititi

Indie flick “Boy” has been racking up awards throughout European film festivals, and now it’s hitting American shores. The New Zealand gem centers on a Michael Jackson-obsessed 11-year-old boy in a remote town, fantasizing about when his deadbeat father returns. When that happens, it’s not exactly like Boy predicted or hoped for.

To get a better sense of the film, we asked writer/director Taika Waititi to record a Call-In Commentary for us — the series where filmmakers provide a commentary for their trailer. In the video below, Taika fleshes out the storyline, and adds those little tidbits that make commentaries so great (such as who drew the Thriller-inspired art piece). “Boy” arrives in limited release this Friday.
