Reports suggest that G.I. JOE: RETALIATION ‘s Jon Chu is now the frontrunner to direct NOW YOU SEE ME 2 after the first film's director,...

Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon headline the trailer for Devil's Knot

Chances are you are already familiar with the story of the West Memphis Three via the brilliant Joe Berlinger PARADISE LOST documentaries or the Peter Jackson produced WEST OF MEMPHIS. The tragic story of three murdered kids and their accused killers was a national story involving rumors of Satanic cults. Three years ago, the imprisoned men found guilty of the slayings were set free...

Review: Last Days on Mars

PLOT: A group of astronauts- part of the first manned expedition to Mars- are exposed to a bacteria that turns its victims into crazed zombie-like creatures. REVIEW: Considering the pedigreed cast and the premise (zombies on Mars) it's a bit of a surprise THE LAST DAYS ON MARS isn't getting a more high profile release. Despite the (presumably) modest budget, the...

Louis Leterrier is back to direct the sequel for Now You See Me

Right before NOW YOU SEE ME debuted in May, I was wondering if people would actually go out and see it. There were tons of spots on television but I didn't hear much talk from people actually wanting to go out to the theater to check it out. To my semi-surprise it did fairly well. I still didn't hear people talking about it. I think my Grandma said it was "a good one". I enjoy...

Magician thriller Now You See Me with Woody Harrelson and Mark Ruffalo getting a sequel

This summer's surprise hit NOW YOU SEE ME is apparently getting a sequel, according to Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer, who says the pic is being "pencilled in" for a 2014 release. In a summer of underperformers (THE LONE RANGER, THE WOLVERINE, PACIFIC RIM), NOW YOU SEE ME has done well for itself, benefitting from a lower budget ($75 million) and a solid, yet affordable cast, making $115...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview with Now You See Me star Woody Harrelson!

Woody Harrelson has become one of my favorite actors over the years. I’ve admired his work in such films as NATURAL BORN KILLERS, THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT, ZOMBIELAND and way too many other great films to mention. In his latest flick, NOW YOU SEE ME, he plays a man with a certain power over others which comes in handy when you want to pull off an elaborate heist. I’ve been very...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview with Now You See Me star Morgan Freeman!

A day before the junket for the new magic flick NOW YOU SEE ME, I found out that I would be interviewing Morgan Freeman on Skype. While the junket was held in New Orleans, he was back in Los Angeles. I’ve never spoken to this phenomenal actor before and to be honest, I was a bit terrified. Oftentimes doing an interview via Skype or anything of that nature doesn’t feel all that personal,...

Exclusive 1:1 interview with Now You See Me star Mark Ruffalo!

Mark Ruffalo has always been a favorite of mine. He has continually offered up terrific performances over the past few years including THE BROTHERS BLOOM, ZODIAC, YOU CAN COUNT ON ME and THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT just to name a few. This doesn’t even include his scene-stealing work as Bruce Banner in THE AVENGERS! With his latest feature NOW YOU SEE ME, this incredible actor adds humor and...

Exclusive 1:1 interview with Now You See Me star Dave Franco!

While having a successful brother might help an up and coming actor, it is always a nice addition when they have the talent to back it up. Dave Franco has continuously proven to have that talent, and then some. From his hilarious turn in 21 JUMP STREET to the recent WARM BODIES, the actor has continued to stand out in each and every performance. With his latest, NOW YOU SEE ME, he has...

Exclusive 1:1 interview with Now You See Me star Jesse Eisenberg!

While waiting to interview the cast of NOW YOU SEE ME in the hospitality suite at the Ritz Carlton in New Orleans, something strange happened… You see, the talent involved rarely step out with the gathering of journalist there to interview them. Yet around lunchtime, Jesse Eisenberg came out and had his lunch sitting quietly at a table in the corner. I briefly spoke to him and said...
