Prospect debuted at SXSW in March and has a theatrical run coming up this Fall. Written and directed by Chris Caldwell and Zeek Earl, the film is a feature-length version of their 2014 short, and it also serves as the first feature-length film distributed by Gunpowder & Sky’s sci-fi label DUST.

Taking place in the future where fortunes can be made and lives can be lost in a sort of intergalactic version of wild west prospecting, a father (Duplass) and daughter Thatcher head to a toxic alien moon in an effort for one big score. The film stars Sophie Thatcher as Cee, Jay Duplass as her father Damon, and Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal as Ezra. Prospect is an excellent film, that has the nerve to challenge its audience.

Asperger’s Are Us is a Duplass Brothers documentary following a 4-man comedy troupe getting ready for their last show, before they go their separate ways. That these young men have aspergers is less important than the relationships they have with each other, and their family and friends. Directed by Alex Lehmann (Blue Jay), you will get a glimpse into the lives of these friends, nay… brothers, who give it their last hurrah, before making new journeys without each other.

‘Togetherness’ Creators Air-Drum To Rush’s “Tom Sawyer” (Video)
  |  @   |  

HBO’s new series Togetherness has just become my new favorite TV show.

Star Mark Duplass recently appeared on Conan with his brother, Jay Duplass, who co-created and co-wrote the HBO drama with him. Host Conan O’Brien asked the brothers about a scene in the third episode, “Insanity” (which aired on January 25th), where Mark’s character Brett tries to motivate his long-time best friend Alex (Steve Zissis, fellow co-creator and writer) by using Rush’s “Tom Sawyer” as inspiration, resulting in the friends doing a whole synchronized air-drumming sequence. The brothers, who explained that that part of the episode was based their real-life experience from college, got the host to join them in recreating the air-drumming scene.

Watch the video from Conan here below.
