    Guest Post: Bob Persons "Herzog Astrology"

    There are a lot of barriers to entry in the film business. Gender,race, and class get a lot of attention (but still not enough to facilitate significant change... yet). For many reasons, indie film is also looked at as the domain of youth. We hear all kinds of stories of Sundance whiz kids bursti...

    'Wet Hot American Summer' Director David Wain Says He's Thinking About A Sequel/Prequel

    Says Universal Won't Release A 10th Anniversary Edition DVDIt may be hard to believe but it's been ten years since "Wet Hot American Summer" hit theatres. It probably doesn't feel like that long because not many people saw it upon it's initial release. After making a splash at the Sundance Film Festival in 2001, the camp comedy received only a perfunctory theatrical release that next summer and died at the box office, collecting less than $300,000 during its run. But fans began to discover the film on DVD, quoting it, having themed parties and suddenly the former flop became one of the biggest cult films of the past decade. This writer can re...

    Review: 'Cars 2' Features All New Parts, But With Less Than Pleasing Results

    Brightly colored, heartwarming, and making expansive narrative sweeps with an incredibly limited running time, it's the kind of bold, splashily produced film that has rarely graced multiplex screens this summer.

    The Press for Transformers 3 Starts With Bashing Megan Fox

    'Gossip Girl' Star Penn Badgley Will Play Jeff Buckley (But Not In The Movie You Thought)

    It's been a confusing last few days. "Gossip Girl" star Penn Badgley was rumored to be playing Jeff Buckley in the long gestating biopic that is set to be directed by Jake Scott. The word was getting so heated that co-producer Orian Williams told Pop & Hiss that the word around Badgley in the develo...

    The Wanderer Returns: Warren Beatty Planning New Comedy For Paramount

    This is what they call a turn up for the books: Warren Beatty is returning to make an untitled comedy for Paramount after a decade-long absence from our screens. The timing seems a little odd. His wife since 1992, Annette Bening, has never had a healthier career, and he was subject to a lavish AFI retrospective three years ago that seemed as if the filmmaking community was finally putting the old dinosaur out to pasture. But Deadline announces that Beatty is to “come home” to the studio that he won numerous Academy Awards for with a "quintessential Beatty, elegantly written and wonderfully entertaining” script penned by the actor that is to g...

    Exclusive: David Oyelowo & Emayatzy Corinealdi Starring In Ava DuVernay's Next - "Middle Of Nowhere"

    I doubt an intro to Ava DuVernay and her next project (Middle Of Nowhere) are really necessary at this point - especially if you've been a reader of this site in recent months.
