Insight into the failure of The Last Airbender & why M. Night isn't to blame

While his follow-up, ELYSIUM, didn't quite...

Sigourney Weaver is back to what she does best, a flick of the sci-fi variety. The actress (and one of my heroes) has joined Neill Blomkamp's CHAPPIE.

Dev Patel in early negotiations to star in Neill Blomkamp's Chappie
