A quick update for all of us looking forward to seeing Mary in the new A&E series The Returned: According to Twitter, tomorrow A&E will be at the winter TCA to present the upcoming show with some of the cast in attendance. Hopefully we’ll get a teaser trailer out of this! :) *Fingers crossed.*

Also, Faults was among IndieWire‘s top ’25 best films of 2015 we’ve already seen’ list. Here’s what they said about the film:

“Faults”
Director: Riley Stearns
Cast: Leland Orser, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Beth Grant, Chris Ellis
Synopsis: A washed-up TV guru/cult expert decides to de-program a young girl from a cult called Faults, in order to pay off the remainder of his debt.
Verdict: Riley Stearns writes and directs his first feature like a man who’s been making compelling, darkly funny, and unpredictably twisted films for years. Films about cults tend to either veer towards undiluted horror (“The Wicker Man,” “Children of the Corn”), eerie drama (“Martha Marcy May Marlene,” “The Master”) or strict genre-fare (“Kill List”), so it’s a testament to Stearns’ talents that he manages such a formidable balancing act of a spooky genre story masquerading as a suburban drama of horrors. Crumbling societal values and power trips with identity make for some of the blackest humor we’ve seen recently, and with the underused Leland Orser absolutely ripping it in a spectacular lead performance, followed so closely by the excellent and instinctive Mary Elizabeth Winstead, “Faults” is likely to end up as one of the year’s very top directorial debuts.
Our Review:
Here’s William’s B grade review from SXSW
Release Date: March 6th

The Austin Chronicle also praised the film:

Sharing much of the cast with one of my favorite gonzo action/slasher hyrbids ever, The Guest, Faults could not be more tonally different. Leland Orser plays a washed-up cult deprogrammer named Ansel Roth, hired to get a young woman (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) back with her family. What quickly and disturbingly unfolds is not just a battle of wits, but a Beckett-meets-Mamet descent into interpersonal darkness. Orser gives one of the year’s best performances, while Winstead’s aura of blank innocence gives director Riley Stearns space to take the movies to incredibly dark places. As I wrote during SXSW, “Stearns’ graduation to the feature leagues may be the most quietly impressive since Craig Zobel opened up the Great World of Sound.”

The Film Society of LINCOLN Center announced its lineup for the 15th edition of Film Comment magazine’s essential, eclectic festival, taking place February 20 – March 5, 2015. Among those films selected to play is Riley Stearns and Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s new film Faults.

Film Comment Selects series tickets will go on sale Tuesday, February 10. A pre-sale to Film Society members will begin Friday, February 6. Below is the film’s description and time/date it will debut at the fest.

Faults
Riley Stearns, USA, 2014, DCP, 89m
Ansel Roth is at the end of his rope. Once a prominent authority on mind control and cult organizations, he’s now broke and alone, resorted to doing lame, sparsely attended seminars and book signings at crappy hotels. On the edge of suicide he is approached with a new assignment: to help “save” a distraught couple’s 28-year-old daughter Claire from the mysterious titular religious cult. He reluctantly accepts, and as the five-day deprogramming mission is carried out, events become increasingly messy and bizarre, with Ansel’s outside troubles also paying an inopportune visit. This contained film-mostly taking place within the walls of a motel room-is guided by the dynamite lead performances of Leland Orser as Ansel and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Claire, and a strikingly clever script (written by first-time feature director Riley Stearns) that is as funny and dark as it is surprising. A Screen Media Films release.

Monday, February 23, 8:30pm

Congrats, Mary and Riley!

Amazon has listed Kill the Messenger for pre-order for DVD and Blu-Ray. According to DVDReleaseDates, the film is scheduled to hit shelves in February of 2015, but it has not yet been confirmed.

Kill the Messenger stars two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner, who leads an all-star cast in a dramatic thriller based on the remarkable true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb. Webb stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation’s streets…and further alleges that the CIA was aware of major dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua. Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications. His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C. – and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life.

KTM hit theaters in limited release last month.

The film also stars Mary, Rosemary Dewitt, Barry Pepper, Ray Liotta and Tim Blake Nelson. Be sure to visit Amazon to pre-order your copy!
