    80% Of The Budget For 'Half Of A Yellow Sun' Came From Nigerian Investors

    Adding to our last post on the cross-continental co-production that is the film adaptation of Half Of A Yellow Sun, I thought this revelation from a Variety profile of the film this morning was something to share: 80% of the film's production budget came from Nigerian investors.

    Listen: Before & After Comparison Of Bane's Voice In 'The Dark Knight Rises' Plus Deleted Scene Details

    If there's one thing we unapologetically love about the ambitious and occasionally irksome "The Dark Knight Rises," it's Tom Hardy and his deliciously evil voice as Bane, the muscular zealot behind much of the movie's jumbo-sized mayhem. While some audience members still claim that his voice was ind...

    Watch: New 'Skyfall' TV Spot Gives First Look At Javier Bardem, Plus See James Bond's Royal Olympics Cameo

    Watch: New Footage In Featurette For 'Anna Karenina' With Keira Knightley, Jude Law & Aaron Johnson

    It seems folks are still divided on Joe Wright's undeniably audacious take on Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina." After a trailer and a generous six minute clip, some haven't cottoned to Wright's approach, while this writer, at least, has fallen for what has been on display so f...

    Rosie Perez Joins Ridley Scott's 'The Counselor'

    Granted, we don't keep up with Rosie Perez, but that doesn't mean she hasn't been keeping busy. While the last time this writer saw her was in "Pineapple Express," just over a year ago, a fellow Playlist-er caught her awesomely praising (and then leaving) a screening of "T...

    Dustin Lance Black Penning J.J. Abrams-Produced Earthquake Movie

    Way back in 2008, J.J. Abrams teamed up with Universal to produce an earthquake movie -- not a remake of the 1974 Charlton Heston flick -- and tasked the original "The Omen" writer David Seltzer to pen the script. And then....that was pretty much the last we heard of it. But now a new writer is on b...

    'The Master' Moves Up To September 14th & 'Killing Them Softly' Shuffles Back To October 19th

    Well, this is interesting. It was just this morning that the The Playlist honchos were talking "The Master" over cups of coffee, and wondering what Harvey Weinstein's gameplan would be. With the film not appearing in the Venice or TIFF lineups, and with rumors of a Fantastic Fest showi...

    The Weinstein Co. Moves 'The Master' Up and 'Killing Them Softly' Back

    As the Weinsteins send mixed messages about where Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" will wind up on the festival circuit, we can now rule out New York. The new September release (9/14 limited and 9/25 wide) could still mean a Venice or Telluride bow or a screening at Fantastic Fest (...

    Watch: Trailer For Noirish 'I, Anna' Starring Gabriel Byrne, Charlotte Rampling & Hayley Atwell

    We're always up for a good little thriller or a piece of noir, and while buzz on "I, Anna" has pretty much been muted at this point despite premiering at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this month, the cast and material is compelling enough that we're eager to give this one a shot...
