Kevin Smith has lofty ideas about who will direct Buckaroo Banzai episodes

There's an old saying that tells you to wish in one hand and shit in another and see which fills up first. If Kevin Smith has any intention on doing so as it pertains to who he hopes to land in the director's chair for episodes of the BUCKAROO BANZAI TV series he's behind, then I get the feeling he'll be holding a lot of poop in the foreseeable future. ...

Channing Tatum and Jillian Bell jump into water for Disney's Splash remake

Right now, no one knows making money like Disney knows making money in Hollywood, so when they announce an upcoming project for their slate in the years to come, it's because they see $$$$$$$ all over it.

Buckaroo Banzai getting the TV series treatment under Kevin Smith's watch

The last time I caught up with THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI, the 80s film just didn't quite hold up, causing me to wonder what it is that I dug about the movies all those years ago as a kid. However, the cult fandom for Peter Weller 's scientist, neurosurgeon, rock musician and race car driver hero has stayed strong over the years, celebrating all the...

Face-Off: Blade Runner vs. The Terminator

In our previous Face-Off , we looked at Bryan Singer 's SUPERMAN RETURNS vs. Zack Snyder 's MAN OF STEEL .

Zach Galligan speaks on what's up with next Gremlins flick

Warner Bros. is dead set on making another GREMLINS movie, whether you like it or not. As long as they can figure out a way to get Gizmo in it and bring back more Gremlins, they're good to go. They already have GOOSEBUMPS' Carl Ellsworth hard at work, trying to crack the script , and Christopher Columbus is on-board to produce, so it's really not a matter of if, but when. But what...
