    Mark Wahlberg Reveals Animated Bear In 'Ted' Will Be Motion-Captured

    We're kind of curious to hear what James Cameron thinks of this, but the upcoming Universal live action/animated hybrid comedy by "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane has a lot riding on it. Starting with its reported $65 million budget. The figure is extraordinarily high for an R-rated comedy (reme...

    Hilary Swank Horror Flick 'The Resident' Pretty Much Going Straight To DVD

    It's been a hard fall for two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank. Ever since she took her second statue for Clint Eastwood's "Million Dollar Baby" way back in 2004, she's had a string of bad films, bad luck or both. Brian DePalma's "The Black Dahlia" had all the pieces of a great movie but was done in by the director pushing every facet of the production into hysterics. "Freedom Writers" was an ill-advised attempt to go into "Dangerous Minds" territory and while she scored a hit with the manipulative romantic dramedy "P.S. I Love You," the indie flick "Birds Of America" and horror fare "The Reaping" were non-starters. Even her big wide swings at ...

    JOHN FORD AT THE OBSERVER IN 1999

    In 1999, AMC was still honoring its original name and intention by running actual American Movie Classics on their channel---what TCM does now--- and that year they programmed an amazing 35-film retrospective of John Ford’s extraordinary opus. I was living in Manhattan then, doing a weekly column for Peter Kaplan’s The New York Observer (its heyday, in other words), and Peter and I agreed we should do a big spread about the AMC Ford tribute. I would write it and he would use many illustrations and give it a lot of prominence. It was also Kaplan’s idea to include in the illustrations several of my original movie card-file cards themselves. As ...

    'Up In The Air' Scribe Sheldon Turner To Pen Gangster Pic 'Big Tuna' For Michael Mann

    Though Michael Mann is currently working on the upcoming HBO horse racing drama "Luck" with Dustin Hoffman, don't be fooled into thinking he's been seduced completely into the world of cable television. Just a couple of months ago, Mann confirmed he has added two more projects to his plate of potential followups to 2009's disappointing "Public Enemies." In addition to the biopic/romance tale of war photographer Robert Capa with Eva Green attached and a long gestating adaptation of Ernest Hemingway‘s “For Whom The Bell Tolls,” Mann has added the medieval tale “Agincourt” based on the novel by Bernard Cromwell, as well as the gangster pic "Big ...

    Paul Giamatti Talks Barney's Version, Win Win, Too Big to Fail, Hangover II and Gibson

    Paul Giamatti is one of those actors who has enough of a global following, thanks to Sideways and HBO mini-series John Adams, to help get certain movies made. Barney's Version is one of them. You can see why he'd want to dive into the best Mordecai Richler character since Duddy Kravitz. The movie is...

    Ugh: 'Precious' Director Lee Daniels To Remake Fellini's 'Nights of Cabiria'

    It's no secret that we weren't big fans of Lee Daniels' "Hard To Watch: Based On The Book 'Stone Cold Bummer' By Manipulate" "Precious: Based On The Book 'Push' By Sapphire" here. The film was admittedly chock-full of excellent performances, particularly the Oscar-winning Mo'nique and lead Gabourey ...
