    Gary Oldman & Helena Bonham Carter Offered Roles In 'Akira' Remake

    Whether you like it or not, Warner Bros' "Akira" remake is now greenlit and moving ahead. With “Unknown” and “Orphan” director Jaume Collet-Serra set to direct and "Tron: Legacy" star Garrett Hedlund ahead of the pack to take on one of the lead roles, it seems the filmmakers are actively looking to ...

    Review: Roland Emmerich's 'Anonymous' Still Manages To Destroy Something -- Its Own Authenticity

    Combining the life-meets-art origin stories of “Ray” with the history-as-high melodrama of “Braveheart,” “Anonymous” marks a departure from director Roland Emmerich’s previous work as a purveyor of blockbuster destruction, but he still manages to destroy any credible sense of history with his speculative portrait of the man who might have been responsible for the works of William Shakespeare. Emmerich, casting his vote for the “Oxfordian” view of the playwright’s actual identity, turns what could have been an intelligent and provocative examination of fact and fiction into an overwrought and cretinous historical thriller that’s too busy disap...

    Hans Zimmer Decides To Sit Out The Oscar Race This Year

    With eight Academy award nominations leading to one win for "The Lion King," composer Hans Zimmer certainly doesn't have anything to prove. Prolific and inventive, he's one of the best in the business, and even with nearly three decades of work tuning up movies, his works remain continually fresh and creative. This year alone has the fifty-four year-old composer taking some fascinating strides, teaming with the Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo Y Gabriela for both "Rango" and “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.” Of course, we don't have to tell you that the man behind the excellent scores for (the Oscar nominated) "Inception" and "The Dark...

    NYFF Review: 'Goodbye First Love' Looks At Young Romance Without Affection

    Television and movies love to indulge us in pre-adulthood nostalgia. Whether the bait is loose (young hooligans causing a ruckus) or more specific and event-oriented (prom, which we've seen less of lately because, well, prom sucks), the powers that be tug at our heartstrings and force us to look back at a time free of major responsibilities and full of fresh experiences. The glazed schmaltz can be off-putting for some, but occasionally sincerity shines through and we get something that captures the emotions extraordinarily well (for this writer's money, "The Virgin Suicides" and "The Girl" are uneven but nail certain feelings on the head). Bu...
