Bigwig film critics, including Peter Travers from the Rolling Stone and Owen Gleiberman from Entertainment Weekly, are slated to host, helming fact-crammed introductions and popcorn-eating competitions before each film. Though the stereogram algorithm that reveals the season’s lineup has yet to be deciphered, films on the docket may include the latest movie from Academy Award-winning director Pedro Almodóvar, Sundance Film Festival Jury Prize award-winner Like Crazy, and the adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson’s The Rum Diary starring Johnny Depp. Screenings are often followed by interviews with special guests, such as actors, screenwriters, and Oscar-worthy best boys. Past appearances include writer /director/actor Josh Radnor (TV's How I Met Your Mother) and actress Zoe Kazan (Me and Orson Welles).
