    Watch: Martin Scorsese, Steven Soderbergh & Wally Pfister Talk Filmmaking In 'Side By Side' Outtakes

    First Real Look: Daniel Day Lewis In Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln'

    As we creep into the fall season, we've seen a little something — whether an image or a teaser trailer — from almost every major film that looks like it could be an Oscar contender. Until this morning, however, there was one glaring exception, and it's one of the most anticipated of all: Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln," which sees America's most successful filmmaker take on his long-time dream project, a biopic of President Abraham Lincoln, with two-time Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis as Honest Abe himself.

    First Look at Oscar Winner Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty

    The film will be released on December 19. I am wondering if it will go the route of The Hurt Locker with a platform release or will have have a wide release. I am thinking that it will be a wide release building on Bigelow's Oscar win, the interest in Bin Laden and the fact that it is being distributed by a big studio - Columbia. It will also be released by Universal overseas.

    Danny Boyle & Alex Garland's 'The Beach' To Become A TV Series On Fox

    Danny Boyle has been the center of attention over the last week thanks to his fantastic Opening Ceremony at the London Olympic Games. By the time the Olympics are over we’ll be back to talking about his film projects (and in particular “Trance”), but for the moment we’ll settle for a piece of news about a new interpretation of one of Boyle’s former projects. “The Beach” was Boyle’s Hollywood debut, and his adaptation of Alex Garland’s 1996 novel was arguably his most compromised feature – Boyle famously fell out with his prior collaborator Ewan McGregror after overlooking him to cast Leonardo DiCaprio – but it didn’t deter him from working with Garland again, twice.
