Tom Hanks and Ron Howard to start filming Dan Brown's Inferno in April

Someone get Hanks an iron already. Last summer we learned that Tom Hanks and Ron Howard were teaming up again to bring us another Robert Langdon adventure with an adaptation of Dan Brown’s INFERNO . They will be skipping over “The Lost Symbol” for now which might confuse a few scholars of the books but it is what it is. Now Sony Pictures and Imagine...

Actor and director Richard Attenborough has passed away at age 90

Legendary actor and director Richard Attenborough passed away today, presumably by natural causes at age 90. My generation may know him best as John Hammond in JURASSIC PARK or as Kris Kringle in MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET . The icon was one of Britain's leading actors, before becoming a highly successful director. His career spanned six decades having appeared in movies like...

Johnny Depp is a suave idiot in the hilarious trailer for Mortdecai

As set images have floated around the last few months from David Koepp 's film MORTDECAI, I have been anticipating the trailer to see if this would be another generic Johnny Depp film or something actually worth my time. With a cast including Gwyneth Paltrow , Ewan McG regor , Oliver Platt , Aubrey Plaza , Paul Bettany , Jeff Goldblum , and Olivia Munn , I was expecting good...

Special FX house speaks out on why practical FX are being passed up for CGI

While computer generated imagery is an ever-growing arena as far as film is concerned, we find that practical effects are falling by the wayside. CGI, when done right, can yield some amazing results. Alfonso Cuaron's GRAVITY immersed people in the cold blackness of space, so much so that you didn't even question where you were. Even characters are becoming central figures in films,...

Cool Videos: How Jurassic Park changed the movies

No one can argue that JURASSIC PARK isn't one of the most influential movies of all time; it's a near perfect movie that in my opinion stands beside A New Hope and Raiders in terms of importance and execution. The movie helped begin a CG movement among filmmakers and is responsible (for better or worse) for the digital world we see on screen today. Here is a cool look...

First official look at Johnny Depp in David Koepp's spy comedy Mortdecai

The past few years haven't been great for Johnny Depp , with DARK SHADOWS and THE LONE RANGER both underperforming at the box office, and TRANSCENDENCE being a complete bomb. But one upcoming project starring the actor I'm excited for is MORTDECAI, David Koepp 's new film based on Kyril Bonfiglioli's book anthology The Mortdecai Trilogy . The first official image...

Chris Pine to team up with David Gordon Green for gritty thriller The Line

Chris Pine may not have blown the doors off the Tom Clancy genre with JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT, but that's not stopping the sometimes Captain Kirk from jumping back into the saddle. Far from it, as Pine actually has quite a few projects on the way this year and has now lined up his next outing, which feels like a nice change of pace for the actor. Pine will next star in THE LINE for...

Review: Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

PLOT: The origin story of Jack Ryan, who is forced to go from CIA financial analyst to spy when a Russian banker plans a terrorist strike on New York. REVIEW: All those who lament the continuing trend of reboots being "dark and gritty" will certainly find the quaint old-fashionedness of JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT refreshing. Though it brings the Tom Clancy character into the...

Two featurettes and a clip from Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit with Chris Pine and Kevin Costner

January is typically a "dead" month for movies, but there's at least one film that looks pretty enticing: JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT. Directed by Kenneth Branagh (who also stars as the film's villain), the film is based on characters created by the late author Tom Clancy , but the first time they've adapted them without using an actual novel for the source...

JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT has unveiled a new action-packed clip that throws Chris Pine 's titular character right into the conversation with the likes of James Bond and Jason Bourne. Aside from all three of them having names that start with a J, they are also the leading characters in gritty spy franchises.
