    Watch: Aardman's 'The Pirates! Band Of Misfits' Gets Two Surprisingly Charming Trailers

    You would think by now that audiences were waterlogged by all the swashbuckling at their local mulitplex but with "Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" a billion dollar earner -- and the only pirate movie game in town -- it's a little surprising that no one else has tried to get a piece of t...

    The Polish Brothers Turned Down The Opportunity To Direct 'Akira'

    One of the most interesting things about Warner Bros.' gestating "Akira" is that ever since director Albert Hughes bailed on the film at the end of May, there hasn't been a word about it. No shortlist of directors, no new names being tossed around for the lead. Nothing. Which is what makes this next...

    Heigh Ho: Yet More Dwarves for ‘The Hobbit’ As Bofur, Bombur & Bifur Revealed

    A red letter day for rabid fans of Peter Jackson productions and/or purveyors of specialist fantasy erotica, for three more vaguely silly-looking promotional stills of grown men dressed as mythical dwarves have hit the interwebs. Even though there’s well over a year until “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” is released in theaters, these bland-as-hell photos are rapidly becoming the new “Harry Potter” posters: an endless drip-feed of drawn-out and bland ephemera from Jackson’s promotional dialysis machine as he attempts to keep the specifics of his production puckered up tighter than a snare drum, and yet still keep his thousands of fans on h...

    A Bastille Day Conundrum: Where Are the Good Movies about the French Revolution?

    Happy Bastille Day! 222 years ago a mob of angry French revolutionaries raided a prison, freed a bunch of people and then went about dismantling their repressive monarchy. Sort of. But really, what's historical accuracy when you can be out drinking wine and imitating Maurice Chevalier? And as always...

    Melanie Laurent Confirmed For 'Now You See Me'; Jake Gyllenhaal Out, Jesse Eisenberg Stays In

    We definitely have a soft spot for Louis Leterrier, as far as action-led helmers go. Undeniably talented, he's more than proved his action chops on the first two "Transporter" films, and pulled off a solid superhero flick on "The Incredible Hulk." Unfortunately, his last film, "Clash of the Titans,"...

    Vin Diesel To Star In Jane Austen Adaptation. No, Wait, It's Another Action Movie.

    It's not that the movie star is dead, as such, it's that domestic audiences (viewers abroad are still very much in thrall to "the star") are less and less willing to watch actors outside of the genre in which they made their name. It's arguable, for instance, whether Hugh Jackman is much of a draw w...

    Sam Raimi's 'Evil Dead' Remake Is Getting Some Script Help From Diablo Cody

    After endless promises and "confirmations" about the long brewing new "Evil Dead" movie, the Internet was taken by surprise yesterday when a flurry of info hit the web that indicated it was no longer a mere pipe dream. Word was that the film was gearing up for production in Detroit and that Sam Raimi’s regular collaborator, editor Bob Murawski, who worked with Raimi on all three “Spider-Man” films and “Drag Me to Hell” before winning an Oscar for “The Hurt Locker,” was also going to be involved in some capacity. By the end of the day, it was revealed that Fede Alvarez, who made the hyped robot invasion short “Panic Attack!” that nabbed him a ...
