    Watch: Trailer For Animated Adaptation Of Frank Miller's 'Batman: Year One'

    While the whole Warner Bros. animated superhero franchise is a world unto itself, and something we haven't really covered at all, when it comes to an adaptation of Frank Miller‘s canonical and hugely influential “Batman: Year One” it can't be ignored. The story takes place shortly after the death of Bruce Wayne’s parents and tracks the young crime-fighter’s first steps into becoming the masked superhero, and as everyone knows by now, Darren Aronofsky briefly worked on bringing it to the big screen in the early aughts, but Warner Bros. shelved the idea at the time.

    Guest Post: Rachel Gordon "Tapping into Educational Distribution"

    For Indie Film to thrive, a producer must consider all revenue streams from the beginning.

    'Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs' Sequel To Be Written By 'Horrible Bosses' Writers

    John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein Penning Script; Phil Lord & Chris Miller Not Returning To DirectHitting theaters in 2009, "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs" was a surprise hit both with critics and audiences. Hauling in over $240 million worldwide, it was proof that Pixar wasn't the only animation studio with a stranglehold on the public and it also announced the arrival of directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller who have since parlayed the cred they earned on that film, into their first live action gig, taking on the upcoming "21 Jump Street." A sequel was pretty much inevitable, and now the wheels are formally in motion as 24 Fram...

    A Few Words (From Yours Truly...) About "Attack The Block"

    We sure have been talking a lot about this film on S&A haven't we? And If you read Tambay's review of Attack the Block last week HERE then you'll know that he liked the film, but was rather underwhelmed by it. It's no John Carpenter's The Thing or Tobe Hooper's Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It's not a ho...

    Review: John Carpenter Retires, Forgets That He Had To Direct 'The Ward'

    An open field. A girl. A fire. A mystery. Ignoring a brief and ultimately irrelevant prologue, the beginning of “The Ward” immediately pulls us into the story of a classic horror convention, the Survivor Girl. Except, tantalizingly, we don’t know what she’s survived and, given a few orchestral cues,...
