    R.I.P. Amy Winehouse

    From a text message while wandering New York's Highline for the first time this afternoon, I heard the sad and sadly expected news that Amy Winehouse had passed away at the age of 27. Oddly enough, last night I watched as my mother (here in NYC for the first time) danced to "Rehab" at a East Village...

    Comic-Con '11: Francis Ford Coppola Uses iPad To Remix 'Twixt' Live & Plans To Tour The Film

    Francis Ford Coppola Reveals He's Already At Work On A New Script & Says He Doesn't Like 3D Glasses For A Whole FilmReturning to Comic-Con for the first time nearly two decades after he hit San Diego to stump for "Bram Stoker's Dracula," director Francis Ford Coppola made sure it was an event to remember. In what will likely be one of the most talked about presentations when everyone wakes up in a geek hangover on Monday, Coppola unveiled footage from his upcoming gothic horror flick "Twixt," but in an interesting twist that set Twitter on fire, he edited and shaped footage on the fly using an app on his iPad. Though there were some technical...

    Terrific Lizard Footage Revealed In 3D During 'Amazing Spider-Man' At Comic-Con '11

    Andrew Garfield Says: "We’re Approaching 'Spider-Man' Like It’s Shakespeare, Or A Greek Myth"The cast of "Total Recall" were ushered off the stage while a massive title card for "The Amazing Spider-Man" was emblazoned on the screen behind them. Before Garman introduced anyone, he showed the film’s theatrical trailer, which hit the Internet just a few days ago, but was admittedly much more impressive on the big screen and in 3D. Apparently, it even knocked out star Andrew Garfield because he appeared in front of the microphone where attendees ask their questions – in a homemade Spider-Man suit, no less – and read an impassioned letter he wrote...

    Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale & Bryan Cranston Talk Remaking A Wacko Sci-Fi ClassicAfter "30 Minutes or Less" at yesterday's Columbia panel at Comic-Con 2011, "Total Recall" stars Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale, Bryan Cranston and director Len Wiseman took the stage to show footage and field questions from the audience. “We’re halfway through shooting so we don’t have enough to put together a trailer, but I know not seeing something is a big bummer. So it’s the first sequence we shot; it’s a scene, it’s very rough, and it’s cut together with a lot of pre-vis.” Although he was certainly correct that the footage was...

    Comic-Con '11: 'Ghost Rider 2' Boasts It Will "Fuck Up Your Shit" Come February 2012

    'Spirit Of Vengeance' Co-Star Idris Elba Says He Would Love To Play 'Power Man' Character Luke CageBookended by a title card that read “fucking your shit up in 3D February 2012,” the "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" footage showcased co-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor's particularly physical style of filmmaking. Both filmmakers ran cameras simultaneously in certain shots, Taylor held on to moving motorcycles wearing only rollerblades as he filmed the action, and the two of them generally disregarded their personal safety as they shot some fairly epic action sequences. When asked whether they’ve ever been hurt, Neveldine knocked on...

    Comic-Con '11: The Team Behind 'The Amazing Spider-Man' On Why The Reboot Was Necessary

    Judging by the reaction to the first teaser trailer for "The Amazing Spider-Man," Sony has a fair amount of work to do in the next year before they can convince fans that the film is more than a cash-grab designed to keep the franchise alive: the clip's reworking of the origin tale and an emo-leanin...
