    Emily Mortimer, Jason Isaacs, Thomas Kretschmann & More Confirmed As Voices In 'Cars 2'

    With Pixar officially launching the marketing campaign for next summer's "Cars 2" by dropping a couple of fresh teaser trailers for the film earlier this week, the biggest question mark that was left with fans was, "Who is voicing the damn thing?" Sure, Larry The Cable Guy (god, we hate typing that)...

    Development Watch: Actresses Vying for Dark Knight Rises, Movies We Want, Ten Screenwriters to Watch

    - "Sometimes reading news about Hollywood’s development slate is almost as depressing as the front-page stories about the economy," says Movieline, so they have a list of upcoming films they "actually want to see."

    "TRON" DVD Conspiracy is a Travesty for "TRON: Legacy" Potential

    Imagine if it was currently impossible to watch the first six "Harry Potter" movies in preparation for the first part of "Deathly Hallows." That's how I feel regarding the recently discovered difficulty in seeing "TRON" before next month's release of "TRON: Legacy." I haven't seen "TRON" since I was a kid, at least 25 years ago, and if I don't have the chance of revisiting it I likely won't end up seeing the sequel. Fortunately I have a friend who is a diehard fan of the 1982 original and will likely get to borrow his copy of the apparently rare and out-of-print 20th anniversary DVD (which is being sold new on Amazon for nearly $100). What ab...

    Watch: Trailer For 'Cowboys & Aliens' Is Rugged & Badass

    It's good week for tentpole trailers. With "Green Lantern" and "Your Highness" delivering the goods yesterday (OK, maybe just the latter), we now have our first look at Jon Favreau's forthcoming "Cowboys & Aliens." And it's the best tentpole trailer to hit in a while (at least this week anyway). Unlike the goofy FX of "Green Lantern," what we see here really makes the sci-fi and period elements feel organic. In fact the whole premise, which sounded kind of dorky on paper, comes off as pretty damn cool here. The cast looks like they're at the top of their game, particularly Harrison Ford, who has been unfairly targeted lately for "Morning Glor...

    Exclusive: George Clooney Eyeing Lead In Steven Soderbergh's 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'

    While In Early Stages, Picture Is Being Envisioned As "Back To Roots" '60s-Set Film2011 is shaping up to be a banner year for director Steven Soderbergh and therefore likely a big one for Warner Bros. too. The prolific filmmaker is planning on releasing his latest spy-based action thriller "Haywire" next spring, he's currently shooting the virus thriller "Contagion" for an already-planned October 21, 2011 release date (Matt Damon, Kate Winslet and Gwyneth Paltrow are just a few of the A-list names, but no, it won't be in 3D), and he's just announced his latest project, the big screen version of “The Man From U.N.C.L.E" for the aforementioned ...
