    Comic-Con: Cavill Talks Superman and Immortals, Tarsem-Vision and 3-D, Pinto, Evans, Lutz

    Saturday in Hall H at Comic-Con, Immortals director Tarsem Singh said the film is actually darker and "more hard core" than the trailers suggest. This Relativity panel shared some 3-D footage as well as a 2-D fight scene (you can see the trailer here). The crowd ate up the 3-D -- whic...

    When Celebrated Directors Lose The Plot: Interesting Left Turns And Failures In An Auteur's Oeuvre

    Even the greatest of auteurs in cinema generally take one or two big missteps in their careers, either early on -- as happened to a lot of the Easy Riders/Raging Bulls generation of American filmmakers, bringing their hirsute hubris down to earth with a bump -- or later, when poor judgement and a degree of fossilisation can cloud a director’s vision -- see Quentin Tarantino’s remarks, for example, about not wanting to be a "geriatric" filmmaker, making films deep into his old age because this is when filmmakers generally lose their mojo, or Steven Soderbergh’s early retirement plans, which he hopes will see him...

    As 'The Dark Tower' Crumbles, Here Are 10 Dead Projects In Search Of Resurrection

    One of the more ambitious projects in recent memory, "The Dark Tower," was canceled earlier this week by Universal Pictures. It's not a surprise, as the studio also recently put the kibosh on a $150 million-budgeted R-rated take on "At the Mountains of Madness" by Guillermo del Toro and Ron Howard, and Akiva Goldsman's multi-platform, multi-film Stephen King adaptation was arguably more risky and definitely much more expensive. We here at The Playlist root for movies to be good, but we mostly root for movies to be made, for a director to complete their vision and for it to have a chance to reach an audience and possibly become a part of the p...
