    Trailer Watch: Will Voyage of the Dawn Treader Be the Best Narnia?

    I am not a fan of the Chronicles of Narnia movies. Walden Media's $180 million The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe was a huge global hit ($748 million) while the $225 million Prince Caspian, based on the weakest book in the series, was a relative disappointment that did well enough overseas ($419.5 million worldwide) to warrant a sequel. From age nine, I reread the C.S. Lewis Narnia books avidly, none more often than The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which is the best page-turning adventure tale of the lot, complete with seafaring travels, dragon, flamboyant talking mouse Reepicheep, the spirituality of the godly lion Aslan and of course a voya...

    Production News: The Secret in Their Eyes Remake, Downey/McQueen's Yucatan, Gravity, The Hobbit

    - When a foreign film earns both critical and audience support (think Let the Right One In and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) --not to mention a Best Foreign Language film Oscar --the remake question comes up. Juan Jose Campanella's Argentine The Secret in Their Eyes (El Secreto De Sus Ojos) may flicker again as an English language remake at Warner Bros. The studio is in final talks for remake rights and have lined up Billy Ray (director of Shattered Glass and Breach, writer of Flightplan) to write and direct, and producer-writer-director-editor Campanella to produce. The thriller traces an ex-federal justice agent's relationship to an old ...
