Will Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise reunite for Go Like Hell?

The last time Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise teamed up was 1994s INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE. I remember reading several rumors stating that Pitt had a lousy time on INTERVIEW but Cruise's next project, RUN LIKE HELL is keeping his interest. Right now, Cruise is on as Carroll Shelby with Joseph Kosinski (OBLIVION) in the directors chair. The film is based on A.J. Baime's "Go Like...

UPDATE: Director Joseph Kosinski and Tom Cruise may reunite for Go Like Hell

UPDATE: Variety is reporting that Cruise is actually up for the role of Shelby "who teamed with Henry Ford II and Ford executive Lee Iacocca to change the image of the Ford brand by making a splash in European car racing, which had been dominated by Ferrari cars." Still looking forward to it no matter who he winds up playing. Director Joseph Kosinski and Tom Cruise didn't...

Oblivion's Joseph Kosinski to helm mysterious action thriller

There's not a ton of details with this news but it's definitely something to look forward to. Media Rights Capital has recently obtained a "top secret script" from Chris Cantwell & Chris Rogers based on an idea from Joseph Kosinski . You may not be familiar with the scribes but you will soon be familiar with their work. The writing duo recently sold their series HALT & CATCH...

Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski to enter The Twilight Zone

After the modest hits of TRON: LEGACY and OBLIVION, director Joseph Kosinski is about to enter THE TWILIGHT ZONE. The sci-fi director is in negotiations to helm a feature based on the popular TV series created by Rod Serling, which ran for five seasons on CBS from 1959-64 with revivals in 1985 and 2002. For modern audiences, it's most remembered by the 1983 anthology film starring John...

Cool Videos: The Oblivion review song wishes Tom Cruise smiled more

Ah, OBLIVION. Much like TRON: LEGACY, we all have been looking forward to this movie only to end up with results that are very divided. On one hand , some think OBLIVION is "another glossy image without much resonance" while others think that OBLIVION is "visually stunning, and makes for a tremendously entertaining two hours" . All I know is that there is only one way to settle...

Review: Oblivion (Chris Bumbray's take)

PLOT: In 2077, Earth has been rendered uninhabitable after a long war with an alien scavenger race. Jack ( Tom Cruise ) is a technician, left behind to service robot drones that harvest the planet’s remaining resources. He lives in tower thousands of feet above the surface with Victoria ( Andrea Riseborough ), his communications officer and lover. Both of them had their memories...

Review: Oblivion

PLOT: Years after a war with an alien opponent has left Earth a barren wasteland, a lone member of the “mop up” team will discover the secret to humanity’s fate. REVIEW: While watching OBLIVION, it quickly becomes obvious that Joseph Kosinski has seen, and liked, a lot of sci-fi films, TV shows and books. Any geek worth his salt will be quick to point to the numerous...

Prepare for Oblivion this Friday with a 20 minute behind the scenes video featuring brand new footage

I am excited for OBLIVION to open this Friday, mostly because this will be the unofficial kick-off to the summer movie season. After OBLIVION, we are just a few weeks away from IRON MAN 3 and then STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS. While those other two films are certified blockbusters, OBLIVION is a harder sell. Sure it stars Tom Cruise , but it is also a very mysterious film without a clear...

Check out a bubbleship escape scene from Oblivion and Tom Cruise's "one-liner's" from Jimmy Kimmel Live; Plus, Mondo's soundtrack art!

So far, OBLIVION has seen some pretty good reviews, with even the "rotten" ones still sounding overwhelmingly positive. Joseph Kosinski 's follow up to TRON: LEGACY most certainly has three great things going for it; 1) Tom Cruise 2) Kosinski 3) M83's score. Those three factors alone make a compelling argument for the film. Based on the clips, trailers, and featurettes we've seen so...

New poster double feature: Oblivion and CBGB

There's a couple of new posters out for two completely different films. First up there's a new IMAX poster for OBLIVION that has a very lonely looking Tom Cruise looking off into the distance. Everything I've seen for OBLIVION so far has a very sleek and clean look to it and this new poster is no different. I'm still not sold on the film but I am intrigued by the story and visuals so...
