  11. Hey I have a question on the screening itself, and it may be best to answer me via email if you actually read this: is Dax Shepard and/or Kristen Bell gonna be at the screening for a Q&A after? I speculate this because they’ve been at every single screening of this film when it’s been screened in other places around the country.

  12. Ronin! Awesome car chase scene!

  13. Duel is a 1971 television (and later full-length theatrical) film starring Dennis Weaver, who plays a terrified motorist stalked on a remote and lonely road by the unseen driver of a mysterious tanker truck. It was written by Richard Matheson, based on his own short story, and directed by Steven Spielberg in his feature film directing debut.
