    Memo to Moviemakers: Let's Have a Moratorium on this Overused Song

    Given that it's now kind of part of an Oscar-winning score, Edvard Grieg's "In the Hall of the Mountain King" has earned all the prestige it has ever needed. And it didn't even need much more before landing in the brilliant Henley Royal Regatta scene of "The Social Network," as arranged by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Since being composed 135 years ago (for Ibsen's "Peer Gynt"), the epic tune has been one of the most well known pieces of classical music ever. Or do I only think that because it's been used in so many films and trailers in my lifetime that it's up there as seemingly one of the most significant works ever written? Covers by ba...

    Arnie Considering Big-Screen Comeback In Ji-Woon Kim's 'Last Stand' & Antoine Fuqua's 'The Tomb'

    Limited by a two-term limit as governor, his inability to run for President (due to being born in Austria), and the fact that he fucked up the California economy royally, legendary action star Arnold Schwarzenegger's flirtation with politics seemed to come to an end at the start of this year. But as...

    Jessica Biel Eyes One Of The Two Female Leads In 'Total Recall'

    While we don't really see the point of a "Total Recall" remake, the casting is certainly moving in interesting directions. Colin Farrell has the lead role and just a couple of weeks ago, a bevy of beautiful women were shortlisted for the two female lead roles in the movie. As you might remember from the Paul Verhoeven version, those principle roles are: Lori, the wife of Farrell’s character, Doug Quaid, who turns out to be more than she seems (a part played by Sharon Stone, in her breakout role, in the original), and Melina, who Quaid becomes romantically involved with (Rachel Ticotin in the original, although the role has been re-envisioned ...

    Armie Hammer's Non-Digital 'Social Network' Twin Josh Pence Joins 'The Dark Knight Rises'

    Well, this is some pretty good karma. Josh Pence had perhaps the most unenviable role of any actor last year. He starred in David Fincher's "The Social Network" but you didn't see him. Why? He was the guy who had his head digitally replaced by Armie Hammer who played both Winklevoss twins. Bummer. B...

    Kevin Williamson & Wes Craven Will Wait & See Before Signing On To 'Scream 5' & 'Scream 6'

    Say what you will about the "Scream" franchise, but it's a financial juggernaut. Together, the low-budget meta-horror picks have so far brought in over $500 million and it's no wonder that Dimension Films are returning to the well nearly a decade after "Scream 3." However, the path to "Scream 4" wasn't exactly smooth sailing. Franchise creator Kevin Williamson, who originally penned the script, departed the film last summer, with Ehren Kruger (”Scream 3,” “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”) coming in and making drastic changes to the script with reports of cast members jumping ship or simply being unhappy with the new direction their chara...
