    Cheer Up Michel Gondry Fans, 'The Green Hornet' May Be Seth Rogen's Fault

    Gondry Didn't Have Final Cut, Or Full Authority, But Says He "Accepted" This Early On“The Green Hornet” may have topped the box office this weekend, bringing in a respectable $34 million but its critical reception was mixed at best. Personally, this writer thought the film had some good laughs but really stumbled when going through the motions of yet another superhero origin story. More importantly, it was a far cry from director Michel Gondry’s best work (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, his music videos) and seemed like more of a compromise than a collaboration with star/co-writer/producer Seth Rogen. Well, according to an article ...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Green Hornet' Nests At #1, 'Dilemma' Disappoints

    This is how business works in Hollywood: you break records or else. "The Green Hornet" was a big ticket for Sony, opening at #1 as everyone expected. But that isn't enough for the film, which set the studio back somewhere between $90 (before reshoots?) and $140 million (after?). As such, simply maki...

    The Leftover Question Marks Of 2011 - Can These Films Possibly Be Any Good? Part 2

    Ok, you've read part one of our The Leftover Question Marks Of 2011 - Can These Films Possibly Be Any Good? feature and hopefully you've got the gist of things. This collection is pretty much what it purports to be, we've already made our Most Anticipated Lists (parts one, two and three), our these-could-be-fun, Escapist, Popcorn films list (parts one and two), and one Foreign Film anticipated list, so basically this is everything leftover, making us wonder, will any of these films be worth our time? Some -- "Hobo With A Shotgun" -- for example feel like they could be B-Movie fun, but a lot of them, hmmm, we're not so sure. Either way, this i...

    Nicole Kidman Plotting Remake Of Alan J. Pakula's 'Love And Pain And The Whole Damn Thing'

    Nicole Kidman and producing partner Per Saari are developing a remake of the 1973 dramedy "Love and Pain and the Whole Damn Thing" under their Blossom Films shingle. The original film, directed by Alan J. Pakula, centers on two tourists who fall in love in Spain, despite their reservations about long-term possibilities. The project will be based on the Alvin Sargent's original screenplay for the 1973 film, and the female lead will be written for Kidman. Kidman and Saari are also supported by producing partners Laura Ziskin and Susan Landau. The film clearly means something personal to Kidman as her husband Keith Urban's 2006 album was entitle...
