  • "WAR EAGLE."

“War Eagle, Arkansas,” which won the inaugural Charles B. Pierce award for Arkansas film last year at the Little Rock Film Festival, is coming to theaters throughout Arkansas in June, before expanding to New York, L.A., Chicago and other cities nationwide thanks to a recently finalized distribution deal with Empire.


Localist, the local underground-focused culture pub that began as a glossy in 2003 and shuttered as a web-only production last summer, will return in late May in magazine form. Editor/publisher Davis Clement says the new incarnation — 56 pages and in color — will feature long essays, cartoons, creative non-fiction, poetry, art and opinion to fill 56 pages. It'll cost $2 an issue and come out every other month.


The final line-up for the Arkansas Tent at Riverfest has been announced. On Friday, Gina Gee and Eclipse Glasses perform and there's a special edition of the Cool Shoes dance party. Saturday opens with two projects from Searcy native Bonnie Montgomery. First, her hymn-focused Shelby Avenue Baptist Singers, followed by her folk project, Montgomery Trucking. Later the Good Time Ramblers, the Amy Garland Band, Chris Denny and Dale Hawkins perform. On Sunday, it's An Orangutan, Kyoto Boom, the See and Kevin Kerby and Battery. See Rock Candy for times and descriptions of each act.


Now that the line-up for the Little Rock Film Festival, May 13-17, has been released, we've given you nine films in particular to anticipate, including the buzzy indie romantic comedy “(500) Days of Summer,” starring Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and the latest from highly touted Iranian-American Ramin Bahrani, “Goodbye Solo.” See trailers of these and most of the rest of our picks online.


Plus, get the most in-depth coverage of Kris Allen's run in “American Idol” you'll find in Central Arkansas.
