Interview: Mark Webber Commits 13 Sins

For the past few years, actor Mark Webber has been a mainstay at film festivals like Sundance and SXSW, appearing in movies that premiered at one or the other, including his first two features as a director, Explicit Ills and The End of Love . Probably his most high profile role to date was playing musician Stephen Stills in Edgar Wright's Scott Pilgrim vs. the World , although he's had pivotal roles in a number of other movies as well - Save the Date and For A Good Time Call. are two of my personal favorites in terms of Webber performances. Right now, he can be seen in the thriller 13 Sins , directed by The Last Exorcism 's Daniel Stamm, playing a salesman faced with a baby on the way and insane medical bills for his autistic brother.

Rosario Dawson On Danny Boyle’s ‘Trance,’ Hypnotherapy, Shaving Her Head For 'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For' & More

In Danny Boyle’s latest genre-bending effort, “Trance,” film noir is fractured into a multi-layered crime narrative with lush, angular cinematography, and -- of course -- an allegiance-shifting femme fatale. As American hypnotherapist Elizabeth Lamb, who guides art auctioneer Simon (James McAvoy) toward the repressed location of a stolen painting pursued by gangster Franck (Vincent Cassel), actress Rosario Dawson impeccably holds the last of those aspects. There is a slippery, sensual quality to Dawson’s character in Boyle’s tense drama, but in real life, she wears many masks as well, albeit more amiable: founder of Voto Latino and activist for countless other organizations, head of her production company Trybe, and star in such diverse projects as “Death Proof,” “The 25th Hour,” and “Explicit Ills.” Recently, we chatted to her about “Trance,” the possibility of a return in “Clerks III,” and one of her most memorable music video appearances. "Trance" features a constant.

Mark Webber Talks The End Of Love, Approaching Filmmaking in a Different Way, Playing a Version of Himself with His Own Child, and More

Set in Los Angeles, The End of Love is an intimate, honest and raw portrait of a young father (played by writer/director Mark Webber) in transition between the life he’s been working for and the one that’s already waiting for him. When the mother of his two-year-old son Isaac (played by Webber’s real-life son) suddenly passes away, the struggling actor is forced to face his inability to grow up and begins to realize that he can no longer remain in denial about the real-life consequences that his choices have. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor and filmmaker Mark Webber talked about how this whole project came about, why he wanted to approach filmmaking in a different way, how heady it was to play a version of himself with his own child, how he found himself reflecting on his own life while making the film,

Review: Mark Webber's 'The End of Love' Moves With Minor-Key Moments & Undersold Skill

Written, directed by and starring Mark Webber -- whose acting filmography runs from "Kids" to "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" -- "The End of Love" is hardly a work of revelation. At the same time, it's surprisingly well-executed, nicely performed and manages to combine a warm and gentle sense of the rhythms of life with a cold and bright-eyed look at the world and its lead's flaws and character. Following his earlier directorial effort, "Explicit Ills," Webber plays Mark, an aspiring actor and successful fuck-up. We see him woken by his two-and-a-half-year-old son, Isaac (Isaac Love). Mark asks Isaac what he wants for breakfast -- cereal? Isaac is intent: "Oatmeal." Mark shoots him an askance glance: "But oatmeal takes longer than cereal, buddy.…" After a disastrous audition, where Mark has to bring Isaac along (one of two glaringly false notes; call it professionalism or ego, but any aspiring actor would

How To Direct Your Own Son

How To Direct Your Own Son
To illustrate how long it can take Sundance Film Festival hits to arrive in theaters, look no further than "The End of Love." Mark Webber's second effort as a director premiered to strong reviews at Sundance in 2012, but is only first opening to the general public on Friday, some 14 months later. (The film is also available via on demand services.)

Webber, best known as the lead singer of Scott Pilgrim's band Sex Bob-omb in "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World," stars in "The End of Love" as "Mark Webber," a struggling actor trying to balance his fledgling career and his role as a single dad. In a twist, "The End of Love" co-stars Webber's actual son, Isaac Love, as his onscreen son. (Isaac's real mother appears in the film in flashbacks as Isaac's onscreen mother.)

"The End of Love" is an early year triumph, a thoughtful indie comedy with moments

Watch: U.S. Trailer For Mark Webber's 'The End Of Love' Co-Starring Shannyn Sossaman, Amanda Seyfried & More

Mark Webber is not only a solid actor traversing both indie and mainstream worlds ("Broken Flowers," "The Hottest State," "Dear Wendy," "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World"), but he has also found his own voice and bloomed into a interesting writer/director in recent years. He released his debut "Explicit Ills" in 2009, and his sophomore directorial effort, "The End of Love" feels like another personal and intimate work. It also features a meta aspect at its core: he stars as an actor named Mark alongside his real-life, then-two-year-old son Issac. Here's the synopsis: When the mother of his two-year-old son suddenly passes away, struggling actor Mark is forced to confront his shortcomings. With his fate and his son's now intertwined, he grapples with his ability to grow up - stuck between the life he once knew and the one waiting for him. When he has a meaningful encounter with a young mother,

Mark Webber to Star in “13: Game Of Death” Remake

Mark Webber to Star in “13: Game Of Death” Remake
Mark Webber—whom I tend to remember from his starring role in Storytelling—is in talks to star in Im Global’s remake of the Thai thriller, 13: Game Of Death, just acquired by Dimension Films.

The remake is called Angry Little God and is about an engaged man who “receives a mysterious phone call informing him that he’s on a hidden camera gameshow where he can win over $6 million if he executes 13 tasks. He accepts the challenge, but quickly realises he’s in over his head and is trapped into horrors manipulated by unseen spectators.“

Daniel Stamm (The Last Exorcism) will direct a script he and David Birke adapted, and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Kiki Miyake will produce.

If you didn’t already know, Mark Webber is actually a director in his own right, and I happened to see his first feature called Explicit Ills at a small film

Sundance 2012 Interview: Mark Webber - 'The End of Love' Director

One of my favorite late-fest discoveries at Sundance 2012 was The End of Love, a film directed/written by, and starring, Mark Webber and his 2-year-old son. It's a beautiful film about a single father trying to raise a son, and the way Webber captures the connection and dialogue he has with his real boy is incredible. You may recognize Webber from any number of acting roles, as the "Talent" in Scott Pilgrim, or indies ranging from Explicit Ills to Shrink to Weapons, but he's as talented behind the screen as he is on it. Luckily, Ethan and I were able to meet up with Mark at Sundance for a fantastic interview about making The End of Love. Here's our interview with Mark Webber talking about his excellent Sundance 2012 film The End of Love: (We shot at a cafe at Sundance, our apologies for the background noise and framing -

Sundance: Mark Webber Talks Working With His Son On 'The End Of Love' & How The Michael Cera Scene Came Together

Every artist takes inspiration from their personal life, but for Mark Webber, making his sophomore directorial effort, “The End of Love,” he didn't have leave home to find his muse. The film, which opened over the weekend at the Sundance Film Festival, focuses on a character named Mark and his two-year old son Issac; which is a coincidence since it stars Mark and his then-two-year-old son Issac. While not exactly a cinematic autobiography, like Webber's previous film, "Explicit Ills," which focused on the Philadelpha neighborhood he grew up, it allows the writer/director to approach a variety and thematic and narrative material with palpable sense of realism. "The End of Love" chronicles the emotional crisis a young father finds himself in when his wife and mother of his child passes away. Adrift, he enters a tentative relationship with another single parent, played by Shannyn Sossamon. We caught up with Webber

Jim Jarmusch Producing Erotic Dramedy 'Panarea' Starring Mark Webber & Chloe Sevigny

While we'll have to wait patiently for the pieces to come together on Jim Jarmusch's awesome vampire flick that at one time had Michael Fassbender, Mia Wasikowska and Tilda Swinton set to star, it looks like the director isn't sitting idle. Jarmusch has become closely aligned with Mark Webber, producing his directorial debut "Explicit Ills" and casting him in "Broken Flowers." We caught up with Webber at the Sundance Film Festival where he's unspooling his latest effort behind the camera "The End Of Love" (check out our review here) and when we asked about what he might direct next, he instead revealed he's once again going to be working with Jarmusch on an intriguing new project. "As an actor and producer though, my next project I'm doing is this film called 'Panarea' that Jim Jarmusch is producing, that my friend Adam Mansbach wrote…and then my friend Adam Lough is directing,

Sundance Review: 'The End of Love' Is Mark Webber's Flawed But Heartfelt Ode to Parenthood

Sundance Review: 'The End of Love' Is Mark Webber's Flawed But Heartfelt Ode to Parenthood
Mark Webber's "The End of Love" is a kind of therapy for its director. Loosely based on the filmmaker's life, the movie stars Webber (an actor whose credits include "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World") alongside his real-life toddler, Isaac, and explores the challenges of his single-parent household. Intimately shot and almost exclusively focused on the two characters' daily lives, "The End of Love" maintains an effectively bittersweet atmosphere that works its quiet spell throughout, although it aims too low to leave a particularly strong impression. A far cry from "Explicit Ills," Webber's impressive ensemble piece that served as his directorial debut, "The End of Love" presents a warm depiction of father-son relations that provides the microbudget alternative to "The Pursuit of Happyness," where Will Smith and son Jaden riffed on their own real-life chemistry. Webber pulls off a far more impressive feat by...

20 Notable Premieres at Sundance 2012 (Pt. 2)

The annual Sundance Film Festival, which kicks off this weekend, is one of the most renowned film festivals on the circuit and has been known to launch the careers of many a rising talent. The Festival has changed over the decades from a low-profile venue for small-budget, independent creators outside the Hollywood system to a now media extravaganza for the Hollywood industry. One thing that hasn’t changed is the number of great movies which premiere each and every year. It’s a true haven for creativity and this year has one of the best line-ups in recent memory. From niche horror to promising indie debuts, the festival is screening 110 feature-length films from 31 countries, so I’ve decided to narrow it down for everyone. Some movies are already getting buzz, whether for star power, the directors behind the camera or because of an intriguing premise. Here are the movies you

Sundance announces 2012 competition films
Grab your ski jackets and swag bags and start warming up your eyeballs: the Sundance Film Festival is almost upon us. 2012's Sundance runs from January 19 to 29 in Park City, Utah, and today the fest announced their first wave of programming, 58 titles in the Us and World Dramatic and Documentary Competitions.

The slate so far includes plenty of familiar faces. Sundancers in 2012 will get the first crack at new movies from Antonio Campos ("Afterschool"), Kirby Dick ("This Film is Not Yet Rated"), Ira Sachs ("Forty Shades of Blue"), and Mark Webber ("Explicit Ills"). I'm also intrigued by "Nobody Walks" from "You Won't Miss Me" director Ry Russo-Young and "Tiny Furniture" director Lena Dunham (Russo-Young directed, the two co-wrote the screenplay) and a cast that includes John Krasinski, Olivia Thirlby, and Rosemarie DeWitt.

2012 Sundance Predictions: Untitled Mark Webber Drama

#70. Untitled Mark Webber Drama - Mark Webber Part of the clan of actors à la Jesse Eisenberg, Lou Pucci Taylor and Paul Dano who've built their careers on solid indie material and as a consequence, could be tour guides for Park City's Main Street's many nooks and crannies, Mark Webber follows his directorial debut Explicit Ills (which preemed at SXSW in 2008) with a drama that might not yet have a title but does include Michael Cera, Shannyn Sossamon, Jason Ritter and Amanda Seyfried (with who he interviewed in this comedy short). Since this is a heavy drama, I see this in the U.S Dramatic Comp section before Premieres. Gist: A drama centered on the relationship between a young father and his infant son after the death of the boy's mother. Producers: Webber, Elizabeth Destro (Cherry), Mollie Engelhart and Matt Sprague (Ioncinema.com Preview Page // IMDb Link)
