    John Cusack To Replace Tobey Maguire In Lee Daniels' 'The Paperboy'

    It's not too long since we last lamented the state of John Cusack's career: long one of our favorite actors, the decade or so since "High Fidelity" has seen at best, enjoyable-but-flawed movies like "Runaway Jury," "The Ice Harvest" or "1408," through to films that were barely released, like "Grace Is Gone" and "The Contract," to, at worst, pictures that were never released, like "Shanghai" and serial killer thriller "The Factory," both shot in 2008, and still sitting on the shelf. But signs are good for a comeback: he's playing Edgar Allan Poe in next year's period thriller "The Raven," he's written another dark comedy the Latin American sat...

    Trailer For 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows' Crackles With Same Brand Of Humor & Style

    We'll be the first to admit we pegged "Sherlock Holmes" all wrong. While it looked rather disastrous in its marketing, what with those 7/11 taquitos tie-ins and what not, it seemed like some kind of Disney-fied disaster gone wrong; a tepid version of "Pirates Of The Caribbean 2" set in the world of the famous English detective. But cut to December 2009 and Guy Ritchie's dazzling direction, Hans Zimmer's killer score and Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law's unexpected chemistry proved us totally wrong. We were happy to eat crow and this was exactly what we're hoping from a tentpole: something thrilling, engaging and, okay, maybe smart would be too...

    Chris Pine Reportedly Tops Wish List For 'Robocop' & Guy Ritchie Once Again Linked To 'Sgt. Rock'

    So is this where we're headed? It wasn't that long ago that the blogosphere collectively tired of constant wish list reports that usually amounted to nothing, but the usually excellent Twitch seem to have rebooted the trend hard today. Earlier they reported Josh Brolin was topping the list for "Oldboy" but we have to remind everyone that wishes are just that and they don't often turn into reality. And while you may have a good source perhaps privy to these kinds of conversations, milking them hard and fast early prevents developing more concrete info or simply creates news out of something that was never news to begin with. It's a chicken/eg...
