    Joel Schumacher Tries To Pull Off His Best Michael Haneke Impression In New 'Tresspass' Photos

    Oh, Joel Schumacher, with your patchiest of patchy careers ever (though some Playlisters will outright call it an awful one). There is some interesting work in your flawed ouevre oeuvre, including "Tigerland," and "Falling Down," but so-so efforts ("Veronica Guerin") are usually overcome by the ungood ("Phone Booth," "The Number 23," "Twelve"). Pitched somewhere between a B-movie director with good intentions and poor execution and a thoughtless Hollywood A-list director without much vision whose best days are far behind him (think of the days when his career was big enough to score him two "Batman" films, even if he did kill the franchise un...

    Comic-Con '11: 'Ghost Rider 2' Boasts It Will "Fuck Up Your Shit" Come February 2012

    'Spirit Of Vengeance' Co-Star Idris Elba Says He Would Love To Play 'Power Man' Character Luke CageBookended by a title card that read “fucking your shit up in 3D February 2012,” the "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" footage showcased co-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's particularly physical style of filmmaking. Both filmmakers ran cameras simultaneously in certain shots, Taylor held on to moving motorcycles wearing only rollerblades as he filmed the action, and the two of them generally disregarded their personal safety as they shot some fairly epic action sequences. When asked whether they’ve ever been hurt, Neveldine knocked on...

    'Face/Off' Duo Nicolas Cage & John Travolta Looking To Reunite On A Pair Of Projects

    Let's face it. Nicolas Cage isn't so much a movie star anymore as a continual riff on his own persona, selling movie after movie on his crazy-wigged eccentricity and personality. The idea of him playing characters has long gone out the window as these days, he pretty much just plays Nic Cage whether in a medieval flick like "Season Of The Witch" or a 3D throwaway B-movie like "Drive Angry." Meanwhile, John Travolta has been vacillating between dumb family fare like "Wild Hogs" or "Old Dogs" while trying to scowl convincingly as a bad guy in action flicks like "The Taking Of Pelham 1 2...

    Malin Akerman Joins Nicolas Cage In Shiny Thriller 'Medallion'

    Audiences seem to be cooling on wig-wearing, "I'll-do-anything-just-send-me-a-script" Nicolas Cage. His medieval flick "Season Of The Witch" opened at number three, and over the weekend, "Drive Angry 3D" arrived with an empty tank opening way down the list at number nine. But Cage, for whatever it's...

    Review: 'Drive Angry 3D' Is a Hellzapoppin' Blast Of B-Movie Ridiculousness

    "Drive Angry 3D" is everything it wants to be. And slightly more. If one wonders to what extent filmmakers have NOT been using 3D, director Patrick Lussier answers with this picture, a crazy, bad dudes-and-fast-cars camp classic in the making. Shocking, grotesque, and completely ridiculous, audience...
