Rob Zombie satisfies the MPAA enough to get 31 an R rating

"Strong bloody horror violence, pervasive language, sexual content and drug use" are probably hard to get by the MPAA into an R-rated film when you use them to the extent that Rob Zombie typically does for one of his films. That's why his latest, 31, had been sitting with an NC-17 in recent weeks even after submitting two separate cuts in the hopes of landing an R in advance of the...

Could this be our first look at Battlecat from Masters of the Universe?

Back in January, Columbia Pictures executive Devon Franklin tweeted an image of the title page to Jeff Wadlow 's script for a new take on the 80s cartoon MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE. Since then, there has not been much news about the film. In the interim, Sony has had some big shake-ups behind the scenes, so it is tough to tell which projects are making progress and which are dead in the...

Rumor: Is this the shortlist of directors for Masters of the Universe?

There's been no word on who would replace him but they did nab Terry Rossio (LONE RANGER) to tidy up the script. I don't know how many of you are still holding out hope that this film will come out sometime in this century. I still don't know what to think about it. As a...
