    David Slade To Direct Adaptation Of Crime Noir Graphic Novel 'Coward' That Sounds A Lot Like 'Drive'

    David Slade's last move was "Twilight: Eclipse" but he seems to have run into a few stumbling blocks getting his next film mounted. He had lined up the vampire horror flick "The Last Voyage Of Demeter" but potential star Noomi Rapace cast doubt on the project in the spring over her involvement and not much has been heard about it since. The most high profile gig Slade landed was taking on the reboot of "Daredevil" but that too seems to be in a weird limbo, with no other updates at all since it was first announced. He was also in the mix for "The Wolverine" but we all know how that turned out. Now it looks like he's got an interesting new proj...

    "Prayer for a Perfect Season" is a Fast-Paced and Immensely Satisfying Doc on High School Basketball

    Here's the second high school basketball documentary I've seen in a week. "Prayer for a Perfect Season," which debuts on HBO tonight (totally fittingly as part of HBO Sports not HBO Documentaries), is very different than "Elevate," however, and definitely nothing like "Hoop Dreams," the standard for this subject matter. It's fast, literal, incredibly current and obviously prophetic. Rather than following some NBA hopefuls who aren't certainly going to make it, here we have some of the greatest teens presently playing the sport, and at least one or two will definitely be pro in the coming years. It's the best-edited and most satisfying sports ...

    L.A. Rebellion 2011 Retrospective Review - Billy Woodberry’s "Bless Their Little Hearts"

    Billy Woodberry’s 1984 feature Bless Their Little Hearts is a film more admired than seen and more’s the pity. To my knowledge, the film has never been issued either on VHS or DVD, but the exquisite 35mm blowup I saw last Saturday gives one hope that a DVD release is in the offing.

    Jackson will Direct Next Tintin Along with The Hobbit; Secret of the Unicorn Opens Abroad October 26

    The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn opens abroad this week (the U.S. waits until December 21), so what better time to confirm that producer Peter Jackson will direct the second installment of the franchise? Most critics have been pretty high on the commercial-looking performance capt...

    Summit Grabs Release Dates For 'Red 2,' 'Warm Bodies,' 'Ender's Game,' 'Now You See Me,' Others

    Even though they've had a quiet year, with "Source Code" and "50/50" being their biggest hits, Summit is merely laying low, with two larger efforts slotted for Christmas time releases: "The Darkest Hour," and some obscure vampire film about marriages and babies. It makes sense that the next step is ...

    Andrew Eaton Says U.S. Version Of 'The Trip' Without Steve Coogan & Rob Brydon Could Be On The Way

    Plus Updates On Michael Winterbottom Projects 'The Promised Land,' 'Bailout,' 'Seven Days' And 'Paul Raymond's Wonderful World Of Erotica' Relationships are key in the filmmaking world, particularly in terms of actually getting the damn things made, and it's no surprise that many of the most successful filmmakers are ones with long-running close partnerships with producers. One of the closest today is that between eclectic filmmaker Michael Winterbottom and his long-term producing partner Andrew Eaton. The pair first worked together on the 1994 TV series "Family," founding Revolution Films together around the same time, and have made a film a...

    David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo gets a new poster, and while impressive, it does look somewhat familiar. Check out the full poster below, along with one from Martha Marcy May Marlene's marketing campaign (MMMM is currently in theaters). We like them both.
