    Mel Gibson, Woody Harrelson & Sinbad Were All Considered To Lead 'Stretch Armstrong' Over The Years

    Hollywood is littered with projects that have been in development for years and even decades, passing from one producer to another, from one studio to the next, from one writer to even more scribes, like an orphan no one wants to care for. And one of those projects is "Stretch Armstrong." In the his...

    Watch: Tim Burton's Cameo In 'Hoffa'

    Tim Burton didn't have a great weekend, with his stop motion animated "Frankenweenie" opening on 3000 screens to a paltry $11 million. So perhaps he'll want to look back on some happier times to cheer him up...

    5 Things You Might Not Know About 'L.A. Confidential'

    It's safe to say that "L.A. Confidential" wasn't greeted with especially high expectations in the run up to its release. James Ellroy's 1990 book, the third of his "L.A. Quartet" (preceded by "The Black Dahlia" and "The Big Nowhere," and completed by "White Jazz") was a favorite among crime fans, bu...

    Review: 'The Lorax' Is Cute But Weighed Down By Its Faithfulness To The Source Material

    Adapting a children's book, especially one as beloved (and brief) as Dr. Seuss' gentle eco-fable "The Lorax," is an unenviable task. There's a sliver of narrative that must be expanded, padded, and teased out, while an attempt must be made to maintain all of the things that people love about Dr. Seu...

    Danny De Vito, Zac Efron, Ed Helms, And, Inevitably, Betty White Join Dr. Seuss' 'The Lorax'

    I Do Not Like It, Sam-I-Am In the less-than-illustrious history of big-screen Dr. Seuss adaptations, Fox's 2007 animation "Horton Hears A Who" stands head and shoulders above its competitors. Admittedly, in going up against Ron Howard's "The Grinch" and the Mike Myers vehicle "The Cat In The Hat," the latter proving so bad that Seuss' widow swore she'd never again allow another live-action film of her late husband's work, it doesn't have a great deal of competition. But having said that, and taking into consideration that the film was souffle-light and immediately forgettable, it did have a big heart, some visual imagination and charming lea...
