    FilmDistrict Pick Up Gerard Butler White House Actioner 'Olympus Has Fallen,' Set For April 5th, 2013

    Every year has its own equivalent to the duelling volcano/asteroid/Truman Capote movies -- two films greenlit independently focusing on the same subject matter, and whose fates end up inextricably tied together. 2012 has seen two such square-offs; the Battle of the Snow Whites, with "Snow White and ...

    New Image Of Gerard Butler As A Leprechaun In 'Movie 43' Plus New Still Of Arnie In 'The Last Stand'

    As we recently wrote, Gerard Butler could probably use a new agent by this point or maybe just a better sense of material. "Chasing Mavericks" opens this weekend with zero buzz, and it will likely be just as quickly forgotten as "Machine Gun Preacher" and probably the upcoming "Playing For Keeps." B...

    Review: 'Chasing Mavericks' Drowns Under A Crushing Wave Of Moroseness & Melodrama

    One of the first things we see in "Chasing Mavericks," a mostly uninspiring surfing drama starring Gerard Butler, his lumpy face framed by strands of willowy wet hair, are the words "Based on a True Story." But the true story behind the scenes of "Chasing Mavericks" is almost as compelling as what m...

    Considering "300: Battle of Artemisia" isn't continuing the tale set forth by its predecessor, "300," it's not a complete shock that Gerard Butler won't be returning to reprise his role as King Leonidas. However, according to producer Bernie Goldman, there was a part for him and Lena Headey in the s...

    Watch: Gerard Butler Tries To Score With Jessica Biel In Trailer For 'Playing For Keeps'

    On the one hand, this is directed by Gabriele Muccino, who helmed the underrated "The Pursuit of Happyness" which earned Will Smith his second Oscar nomination after "Ali." On the other hand this is directed by Gabriele Muccino who helmed the sort of ridiculous "Seven P...

    Watch: Gerard Butler Gets Wet In Trailer For 'Chasing Mavericks'

    So are uplifting yet tragic surfing movies a thing now? Last year we got "Soul Surfer," the true story of a young woman who gets attacked by a shark while out on the water, loses an arm, finds God, and gets back on the board.

    Cannes Market: Wachowskis' 'Cloud Atlas' Screens for Buyers; Butler, Worthington and McConaughey Get Funded for 'Thunder Run'

    As the major studios focus on big-budget FX and brand-name tentpoles, and micro-indies spread like kudzu, the middle ranks of movies are being funded and produced outside the studio system. This is good and bad. 'Cloud Atlas' screened Tuesday at Cannes.
