    'Rubicon' Star James Badge Dale Circling Role Alongside Brad Pitt In 'World War Z'

    James Badge Dale might not be a name that's immediately familiar to you, but increasingly, it's a face that you'll recognize: the actor had key roles on "24" (as Jack Bauer's sidekick Chase) and in "The Departed" (as the bent copper who pops Leo in the head at the end), before landing two big leads ...

    Robin Wright In Negotiations To Join Kevin Spacey In David Fincher's Netflix Series 'House of Cards'

    We have to admit, we're enormously intrigued by "House of Cards." A remake of the popular BBC series from the 1990s, itself based on a series of books by political insider Michael Dobbs, it marks the reunion of David Fincher, one of the biggest directors around, and Oscar-winner Kevin Spacey, for the first time since "Se7en," and on a TV series, no less. More importantly, it has the potential to be a real game-changer, being the first original series commissioned by streaming giants Netflix, who will air the show exclusively, having committed $100 million to the show, and scheduling it for an unprecedented 26-episode, two season run straight ...

    "Attack The Block" (The British "Aliens Attack Da Hood" Movie) Finally Get's USA Theatrical Date!

    I don't think this movie needs much of an intro around here. We've written and talked about it enough times. But if you're just joining us, and you've never heard of it, I'd recommend you search the current (and old) site for previous posts on it.

    'Parks And Recreation' Star Adam Scott Joins Seth Rogen & Barbra Streisand In 'My Mother's Curse'

    Actor Also Signs On To Indie 'See Girl Run,' Is AwesomeIt didn't happen overnight by any means, but the world is finally starting to take notice of Adam Scott. The 38-year-old actor has been working for over 15 years now (he was in "Boy Meets World" and "Murder One"!), but finally started to grab people's attention in the first half of the last decade, with roles in "High Crimes," "Torque" and "The Aviator." And things have only gotten better since then: he stole the show from Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly in "Step Brothers" (see below for evidence), put in a terrific pair of indie performances in "The Vicious Kind" and "Passenger Side," le...

    Summer Just Got A Whole Lot Better: 'Attack The Block' Begins Rollout In Theaters July 29th

    About six weeks in, and the report card for Summer 2011 isn't doing too badly: one instant near-classic in Paul Feig's "Bridesmaids," J.J. Abrams' mostly well-received "Super 8," a thoroughly decent animated sequel in "Kung-Fu Panda 2," two superhero entries that landed somewhere between better than expected ("Thor") and much better than expected ("X-Men: First Class") and a beguiling new Terrence Malick picture, plus a pair of excellent indies in the shape of "Beginners" and "Submarine." Sure there have been stinkers, like "The Hangover Part II" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," but overall the success rate is much higher t...

    A Genuine Tragedy: Jeffrey Katzenberg Calls 3D Box Office Dip "Heartbreaking"

    Dear Zillionaire Jeffrey Katzenberg, let it be known before we begin our article that our heart bleeds for you and your stock holders. In December 2010 2009, just a few short weeks after James Cameron's latest opus had proven to be a runaway smash hit, 3D was heralded as the next the savior of cinema by the industry, many of whom had just received the best Christmas bonus ever. The technology, and more importantly, the resounding reception audiences met it with, had apparently revitalized, rejuvenated and revolutionized the film industry. In 2010, "Avatar" (which was released at the tail end of 2009) grossed $2.7 billion worldwide (highest gr...

    Craig Brewer Says He's Sensitive To The Racist Elements Of The "Tarzan" Story He's Adapting

    Talking to Collider about all his upcoming projects, including the Tarzan reboot I've mentioned twice on this site, Hustle & Flow/Black Snake Moan director, Craig Brewer had this to say, with regards to the sensitive, potential explosive racial nature of the material... “I don’t want to give too much away of what I’m doing, but that is something I have thought about, and something I am addressing, and I can just say that “Tarzan” is a love story really, the movie I want to tell, that’s on the backdrop of this adventure, where Tarzan has to reconnect to his love, Jane, and to Africa itself. I know there’s probably going to be some concerns, in...
