    'Elizabethtown' Duo Kirsten Dunst & Orlando Bloom Reunite For Financial World Drama 'Cities'

    Watch: Kirsten Dunst Stars In R.E.M.'s Final Video: "We All Go Back to Where We Belong"It's okay if you forgot about this movie, because we did too. Way back in the spring, it was announced that Clive Owen and Anil Kapoor were being lined up to star in Roger Donaldson's "Cities." And then...we didn't hear much after that. But the film is getting a couple of fresh faces who haven't worked together since they first paired up six years ago in Cameron Crowe's not-so-hot "Elizabethtown."

    A Few Great Pumpkins VI—Fifth Night: The Howling

    “Repression is the father of neurosis,” chides Patrick MacNee in the first clearly audible moments of The Howling (1981). Fortunately, Joe Dante’s never been one to hold it all in. This is, after all, the guy who unleashed not one but two sets of crazed Gremlins (and a squadron of homicidal plastic G.I. Joe knock-offs) on multiplex audiences, the guy who first made his named with something called The Movie Orgy. If the werewolf genre is all about giving over to the beast within, then movie-brat Dante would seem to be an ideal to candidate to helm an all-out howler.

    Fox Planning To Bring "In Living Color" Back To Life

    During its first few seasons was there a show as funny and as groundbreaking as In Living Color? Yeah I thought not. It was one of those few rare shows that you HAD to watch every week or else you were left out. The kind of show had to watch to see just what kind of inspired outrageous lunacy that they would come up with yet.

    'Spellbound' Director Jeffrey Blitz Takes Over 'Table 19' From The Duplass Brothers

    Writer/directors Jay and Mark Duplass have slowly been moving up the ladder from their lo-fi indie beginnings, delivering last year's "Cyrus" and following it up with "Jeff Who Lives At Home," hitting theaters next spring. They still have their long-forgotten sports-comedy "The Do-Deca-Pentathalon" sitting somewhere waiting to get released, but another film they had written and were lined up to helm has found another director.

    FLIFF Review: "A Dangerous Method" (Michael Fassbender, Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen)

    I caught a screening of David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method last night at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival. Going in, I tried not to have high expectations. Although I’ve read many mixed/partial reviews to the film; surprisingly, it currently holds an 81% rating at Rotten Tomatoes. Tambay posted a review of the film earlier this month; you can find it HERE.

    If you were gearing up to make a film based on the '60s folk scene, or any music-based film for that matter, why not recruit one of the most popular musician-turned-actors of recent times?

    'Rampart' Starring Woody Harrelson Gets November 23 Oscar Qualifying Run Release

    Film Will Hit NY & L.A. For One Oscar Qualifying Week & Will Reopen In Platform Release On January 27Largely known so far for straight to DVD/VOD fare ("Trespass," "Blitz" "Shadows and Lies" with James Franco) and some theatrical releases, (Chris Evans' "Puncture") Millennium Entertainment might seem, on the outside, like a strange fit for "Rampart," Oren Moverman's cop drama and follow-up to excellent 2009 film, “The Messenger.” But as the recent acquisition of Richard Linklater's black comedy, "Bernie" suggests, the company is in the middle of a rebranding strategy, and moving away from B-movie fare.

    James Mangold Calls 'The Wolverine' A Dark Character Piece Like Eastwood's 'The Outlaw Josey Wales'

    'Walk the Line' Director Also Likens It To 'Chinatown,' Calls It A Foreign-Language Super-Hero Drama, Film-Noir & Detective Story; Reveals He Spoke With AronofskyEvidenced by his success with “Cop Land,” “Walk the Line,” “3:10 To Yuma” and “Knight and Day,” James Mangold has a knack for turning populist entertainment into personal expression. But when 20th Century Fox announced that Mangold would be taking on “The Wolverine,” a sequel to “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” his fans seemed concerned he might be overwhelmed by the enormity of a franchise sequel, and the constant scrutiny that seems to come with one. (Never mind the fact that he’s directed critical and commercial darlings alike with Russell Crowe and Tom Cruise, and came away with fun, interesting pictures that still feel like they belong to him.) But Mangold told The Playlist that he thought that a sequel was the best place for him to be able to imprint his personality on the property, since he’s unencumbered by the requirements of an ensemble piece or an origin story.
