Ron Howard on why he skipped over The Lost Symbol in favor of Inferno

Ron Howard 's adaptations of Dan Brown's hugely popular series of novels centering around Harvard symbology expert Robert Langdon haven't exactly kept to the same order as the books. The first film (THE DA VINCI CODE) was based on the second book while the second film (ANGELS & DEMONS) was based on the first. Dan Brown's fourth novel in the series is the basis of...

Inferno trailer is much more exciting than those other Dan Brown adaptations

It hasn't been a smooth transition for Robert Lang don as the character has been adapted from the page to the screen. With THE DA VINCI CODE, everyone thought things would be fine, because Tom Hanks was taking on the role. However, the bigger challenge has been making the books into exciting motion pictures, something director Ron Howard has had real trouble doing. ...

The Good, The Bad & The Badass: Joel Silver

Last week, we took a look at the career of director Richard Donner . This week's subject is a frequent colleague of Donner's, and one who never quite gets the credit he deserves...

Shane Black on The Nice Guys, buddy comedies, Lethal Weapon, Predator & more

I know it's May, but it must be Christmas, because Shane Black is around. It's a little odd to me that an entire generation knows Shane Black as the writer-director of IRON MAN 3 first. Not that it isn't a very impressive film to be associated with; but for an earlier generation - old folks like me - Black was the screenwriter to look up to for a while in the 80s and...

David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are "on board" for more X-Files

Although 2016 has brought, and will bring, bigger and more impressive feats of entertainment, I was looking forward to Fox's revival of The X-Files almost more than anything else. It's always dangerous to let the hype surrounding a project get the better of you as more often than not, it leads to disappointment. It's probably safe to say that The X-Files revival was one of...
