    Could 'The Scorpio Races' Be The Next 'Twilight' Or 'Hunger Games'? Warner Bros. Developing

    Let's face it, Summit Entertainment continues to make films because of the insane profits from the "Twilight" franchise. The three films already released from the franchise have grossed a combined $1.8 billion worldwide from theatrical releases alone, and that doesn't include DVD and all the film licensing the company also has a meaty stake in. The success of the series showed a massive untapped potential in teenagers and the young adult audience (that wasn't the "Harry Potter" crowd) and studios took notice immediately. While, in the three years that have passed (the first film was released in 2008), not one studio has released a viable comp...

    Albert Brooks Was Forced To Turn Down Burt Reynolds' Role In 'Boogie Nights' Because Of Scheduling

    'Drive' Star Also Passed On 'Big,' 'Dead Poets Society' And 'Pretty Woman'Of the many things that have made a comeback in 2011 -- Wilson Phillips, high-waisted pants, the street protest -- perhaps the happiest is the resurgence of Albert Brooks.

    Review: 'Tower Heist' Is A Slickly Made, Socially Conscious Romp

    With major protests occupying cities all over the globe and unease about the financial stability of the establishments who swear to protect our hard-earned money reaching an all-time high, it's sort of interesting that "Tower Heist," a ludicrously expensive big budget commodity, can offer some kind of catharsis to ease our worried souls. But, this comedic thriller, which stars a bunch of movie stars that make more in one movie than most Americans make for their entire lives, does just that: it lets us laugh off our neuroses (and, for 104 minutes, that might be enough). The fact that it's a reasonably entertaining, slickly produced trifle is t...

    It's Halloween and it seems that today's treats are bits and bobs about Terrence Malick's next, untitled film (aka "The Burial"). First word cropped up that little known American Indian classical composer Jerod Tate would be providing the score. But in addition to the cast, which currently incl...
