    Rumor: Marvel Postponing Pre-Production On 'The Avengers' Due To Ballooning Costs?

    Right now, Marvel is behaving a lot like they just graduated from college. Yes, that "Iron Man" internship opened a lot of doors, but the "Hulk" side venture didn't really yield the results they were hoping for. Their side projects for next summer -- "Thor" and "Captain America" -- do show promise, ...

    Mary Jane Watson Will Not Appear In The Upcoming 'Spider-Man'

    Contrary to early reports, it looks like the new Peter Parker won't be the meat in a two-lady sandwich. Redheaded love interest Mary Jane Watson, played by Kirsten Dunst in the previous three "Spider-Man" films, won't factor into the new reboot of the character scheduled for 2012. Consider this good news for the purists who were upset that Mary Jane was considered Peter's one-and-only in the previous Spidey adventures. In the comics, not only was the web-slinger far from a one-woman man, but he remained haunted by the passing of his first true love, Gwen Stacy. Once she died at the hands of the Green Goblin, however, he became a total and com...

    'Hot Tub Time Machine' Director Steve Pink To Helm 'The Toxic Avenger' Remake

    If at first you don't succeed, try try again. And in the case of Troma's "The Toxic Avenger," they are yet again trying to find a way to make the trashy '80s guilty pleasure culturally relevant. If you remember, there was a failed cartoon series on Fox in 1991, and if you think back really hard, you...

    Criterion Clue: Brian DePalma's 'Blow Out' Coming To The Collection?

    The Evidence Is Too Great, Don't Bet Against ItSure, any and all speculation about what the Criterion "wacky" clues really mean are going to be aimless and hypothetical (and, as such, have just as likely a probability of being way off-base and wrong), but there are a few from the past that have call...

    Chris Morris, Director Of 'Four Lions' Talks The Truth About Absolute Evil, "The Lion King"

    It's rare when a debut film is anything but amateur, few nail a "Blood Simple" or "400 Blows" at first swing. Even those that are mediocre "show promise," and those that reveal a sign of brashness are "future cult classics." So how is it that British satirist Chris Morris' first film "Four Lions," a comedy following a Jihadist cell, is not only hilarious and ballsy, but works really well? Truth be told, it could be his years of experience in the biz -- starting off as a disc jockey, he worked on many radio shows and later in television, including "The IT crowd" and "The Day Today," which featured a very young Steve Coogan. It wasn't until 200...
