Andy Serkis says his Jungle Book is for an "older audience"

Disney's THE JUNGLE BOOK is closing in on $1 billion worldwide, but that doesn't seem to be phasing Andy Serkis and his adaptation with Warner Bros. We've always known that Serkis' film would most likely be a darker take on Rudyard Kipling 's novel, but the man himself had a few words to say to Vulture about JUNGLE BOOK (as it's called now), and why making a...

Sherlock Holmes 3 is back in action, James Coyne to rewrite script

I've got one heck of a soft spot for Guy Ritchie 's SHERLOCK HOLMES franchise, not only are they immensely entertaining, but the chemistry between Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law is, for lack of a better word, delightful.

New Concussion trailer has Will Smith getting deeper into his fight with NFL

Football is a strange sport to watch these days. Even though I've been a fan all of my life, I find my enthusiasm for it to be waning the last couple years the more we learn of how dangerous it can be to its participants. This is something we're supposed to be watching for entertainment, and yet we're watching players kill themselves in order to supply it. As we get deeper into the...
