Set Visit: Runner Runner: Part 1: Puerto Rico and the Sexy Thrill of Online Gambling

There are certain places in the world that police and locals alike just don’t go. Certain neighborhoods, like Baldwin Village as portrayed in TRAINING DAY, where it is simply not an option to venture because you’re not a part of the community and will thereby very possibly get your shit f***cked up in a big way. That’s the sort of place I found myself one hot and...

The Incredible Screencap Challenge - January 25th, 2012

Welcome back to another Incredible Screencap Challenge, where we post the stills and you tell us what movie each image is from. Easy, right? Well then, let's just see about that - put your movie knowledge to the test and see how many you can get right! This will be my last entry in this column, so I just want to add a big "thank you" to everyone who has tuned in each week and participated....

Liam Neeson is officially signed to star in mob thriller Run All Night

When last we heard about Liam Neeson's newest potential action project, the script was still titled THE ALL NIGHTER. But now our news is two-fold: firstly, the title has been adjusted to the slightly-more-active RUN ALL NIGHT.  And secondly, Neeson has formally, officially, and absolutely signed on to star. A director is still needed, but Neeson is currently working on...

New poster double feature: A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III and To the Wonder

A note to all of you budding screenwriters out there: please use shorter titles than A GLIMPSE INSIDE THE MIND OF CHARLES SWAN III.  You'll shoot yourself in the foot for a whole host of reasons, not the least of which being online critics won't be fans of retyping your title.  And before you complain: using copy/paste isn't much easier. With that being said, let's take a look at...

Director of The Adjustment Bureau to collaborate with screenwriter of The Last Stand on sci-fi project

THE LAST STAND, written by one Andrew Knauer , is in theaters today. And in a fun turn, the believers have been vindicated by solid reviews across the board for the action flick.  While every project changes once a director becomes involved, and the dynamism of Kim Jee-woon's presence is not to be denied, plenty of praise has been direct Knauer's way for a tight, exciting,...

The Incredible Screencap Challenge - January 18th, 2012

Welcome back to another Incredible Screencap Challenge, where we post the stills and you tell us what movie each image is from. Easy, right? Well then, let's just see about that - put your movie knowledge to the test and see how many you can get right! For all who those guessed the pictures from last week , what follows are the "right answers." #1: CHICAGO #2: LEON: THE...

Guillermo del Toro gives up the goods on the plans for and status of Pacific Rim 2, The Haunted Mansion, Beauty and the Beast, and more!

Most, if not all, of us here are distinct and die-hard fans of Guillermo del Toro.  Also known in certain circles as the Messiah of Movie Monsters. So rather than go on and on about who he is and what he does and just how well he does it and how excited I am for anything and everything he's going to do next, it makes more sense to me to just go ahead and let the man speak for...

Ubisoft signs hit young British playwright to adapt Assassin's Creed

For those of you out there doubting that Ubisoft, Michael Fassbender , and New Regency were really going to make ASSASSIN'S CREED happen - the chances of that are slightly less than they were before. Hollywood is harder to predict than closing your eyes and guessing what's going to happen next on the other side of the world, so even with the news that a screenwriter has been signed to...

Alfonso Cuaron's upcoming film Gravity scores a mid-fall release date

Hold on to your seats - physics jokes are coming... If I knew much about physics, that is.  All I remember, which I think is all you really need to remember anyway, is that there are three laws to Physics Club.  Law #1: you do not talk about Physics Club.  Law #2: you DO NOT TALK about Physics Club.  Law #3: crazy shit happens out there in the universe, so don't...

These two banners for Jack the Giant Slayer warn that something giant is coming

JACK THE GIANT SLAYER is coming. This much we now know.  Will people come to theatres in response to it and watch the thing? This much we don't know, and the prognosis is so murky that I can't for the life of me predict how things will go. One thing's for certain - if Jack fails in his quest, at least we can rely on Stanley Tucci 's strange stinkeye/sassy-wink combo facial maneuver...

Bradley Cooper set to parlay his first Oscar nomination into the starring role of a period spy flick called Dark Invasion

After a steady stream of starring roles that culminated in his first Oscar nomination this past week, Bradley Cooper has already used his Oscar clout to line up what sounds like a fascinating project. Just to clarify, "fascinating" here refers to both in general terms and in terms of stretching Cooper's on screen presence in terms of tone and subject matter. Titled DARK INVASION,...

Homer's classic ancient epic The Odyssey to see a new cinematic adaptation... set in space?

While this is hardly strange news for Hollywood, that doesn't make it any less eyebrow-raising of a reality. Last seen on the small screen in 1997 and sort of on the large screen in 2000 with O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU, Homer's ancient epic THE ODYSSEY has hardly received the grand treatment one might thing its characters and creatures so call out for.  Island witches, cyclopses...
