Movie Jail: This week's defendant is...Andrew Niccol!

This is Movie Jail, a unique maximum security prison that houses some of the worst writers, directors, actors and producers from Hollywood and beyond. Their crimes? The offenses vary from convict to convict but most of these inmates have contributed negatively to the film world to some capacity and his or her misdeeds have covered a long enough period of time that the authorities had...

Paramount developing new TV series based on Jim Carrey's The Truman Show

Good morning, and in case I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and good night! Paramount is working on a new Terminator television series , but apparently the studio is also developing another new show with ties to a feature film. According to an article at The Wrap on the studio's new television executives, Paramount is interested in adapting 1998's THE TRUMAN...

Review: The Host

However, Melanie refuses to go without a fight, and her subconscious battles Wanderer for control of her body. Eventually, they come to an...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview with The Host Star Jake Abel and Max Irons!

Ive had the pleasure of speaking to Jake Abel several times before. Hes a fantastic actor and an amazing guy to just chat and hang out with. Yet his THE HOST co-star I had never met before, and after doing so I am happy to say that he is pretty damn cool as well. The two actors are about to hit the big time with the release of THE HOST, based on the book written by Stephenie Meyers -...

The new trailer for The Host looks like Twilight with aliens, guns, and Diane Kruger

Forgive me if I have a bias against the TWILIGHT series, but I have tried reading the books and watching the movies and cannot bring myself to get past the weak source material. Even if she has a penchant for coming up with interesting stories, Stephanie Meyer is not a very good writer. So, I didn't pay much attention to THE HOST when the trailers began popping up until I heard that...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview with The Host Star Saoirse Ronan!

Saoirse Ronan has already proven to be an incredible talent. Her work in HANNA, THE LOVELY BONES and of course ATONEMENT has earned her critical raves as well as an Academy Award nomination. At only eighteen years of age, the actress has shown incredible range and the ability to carry a film. Next up for Saoirse is the latest adaption of a Stephenie Meyer book (TWILIGHT) called THE...

Three new banners for The Host starring Saoirse Ronan and Diane Kruger invade the web

We haven't exactly been coy about our distaste for Stephenie Meyer's TWILIGHT saga around these parts, but now that the painful vampire/werewolf love triangle is over, we're ready to welcome the next go round from the author with open arms.  Right?  Driving on the same love triangle themes as her previous work, Meyer's THE HOST does have a few things going for it, namely in its...

Will you be taken over by this first full trailer for The Host?

While a teaser trailer of sorts for Stephenie Meyer's THE HOST dropped back in March , today's footage is the first full (albeit somewhat low-quality) glimpse we've had at the movie.  And the verdict? Saoirse Ronan is pretty.  She has some alien-bestowed powers, one of which is Wolverine-style regeneration.  I think there's a love triangle going on, but I kept...
