    Venice '11 Review: 'The Ides Of March' Is A Gripping Return To Form For Director George Clooney

    Even more so than usual, 2012 should be a particularly fascinating election year. On the one hand, you've got the incumbent, President Barack Obama, a man elected on the promise of hope and conciliation, and a man who's failed to live up to the sky-high expectations placed on him. On the other, you have a band of Republican candidates who have, so far, failed to look anything like contenders, instead seemingly competing in a national crazy-off. We're a long, long way off from finding out the victor, but to get things underway, one of the most politically engaged actor-directors around has opened the Venice Film Festival with a look behind the...

    John Moore To Direct 'Die Hard 5'; Search For 'Red 2' Helmer Begins

    Just last week, the long gestating "Romancing the Stone" remake got new life when rumors kicked around that Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl were being eyed as the potential leads in the new film. Needless to say, the general reaction from everybody was a resounding thumbs down. But as it turns out...

    Yes, The World Needs A 'Captain Planet' Movie Starring Don Cheadle & It HAS To Be Just Like This

    Last month it was announced that "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" and "Real Steel" producers Don Murphy and Susan Montford had inked a contract with Cartoon Network to develop a live action movie of the animated cartoon, "Captain Planet." Now, if you ever happened to be babysitting a four- to eight-year-old during its early '90s run, you're aware that "Captain Planet" was irony-free and/or perhaps earnest in a way that no longer exists in children's cartoons. Even in the early '90s before slacker culture had set in, "Captain Planet" was the fey, milquetoast hero of children's cartoons especially in comparison to the reference-heavy and very s...
