Fan-favorite directors from Quentin Tarantino to Wes Anderson are known as much for their skills at compiling mixtapes...

    First Official Photo From J.J. Abrams' 'Super 8' Lands; What's In The Camera Lens?

    While J.J. Abrams wants to keep a tight lid on the surprises he has in store for his Amblin Entertainment homage "Super 8," Paramount is bit more concerned about dropping a summer movie with no big stars that isn't a sequel and is not based on any pre-existing property.

    Duncan Jones Confirms He's Meeting With Fox To Discuss Directing 'The Wolverine'

    With "The Wolverine" now defanged a bit thanks to Darren Aronofsky leaving the director's chair and the tragic earthquake and tsunami in Japan where the film was supposed to shoot, Fox has put the brakes on the highly anticipated sequel which apparently boasts a strong script from Christopher McQuarrie.

The film stars Mickey Rourke, Megan Fox, Bill Murray, Rhys Ifans and Kelly Lynch (with appearances by Bud Cort, Rory Cochrane and Murray's older brother Brian Doyle-Murray -- "Get a Life" fans, anyone?), but within the tr...
