SXSW Promises Vendettas, Betties, Dreamz & Slithers
In addition to a ton of low-budget, independent, documentary, and dramatic films, this year's South By Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival promises a rather flashy infusement of high-end studio fare, too! So while it's always important to shed some attention on the little guys (which we'll be doing soon enough), it's also fun to note that SXSW will be offering high-end "gimme" titles like "V for Vendetta," "The Notorious Bettie Page," "American Dreamz," and the geekily-anticipated "Slither."

Trailer Bulletin: The Notorious Bettie Page
One of the most well-received narrative flicks at last year's Toronto Film Festival was "The Notorious Bettie Page," which comes from the writing/directing team behind "American Psycho," but don't let that fool you. She doesn't kill anybody. Anyway, check out the trailer right here.
