    Ang Lee Talks 'Life Of Pi,' Says, "I Just Want To Survive It"

    One of the biggest question marks of the upcoming fall/winter movie season is Ang Lee's "Life of Pi," a costly literary adaptation (from the beloved novel by Yann Martel) with zero stars and an unconventional narrative (following a young boy as he's left adrift in the ocean with some animals). Wheth...

    David Fincher Exits 'Cleopatra' With Angelina Jolie; Sony Searches For New Director With Eye On Ang Lee

    So, is David Fincher's relationship with Sony in trouble, or does Scott Rudin simply want to get moving on "Cleopatra" starring Angelina Jolie? It remains to be seen where the truth lies, but one thing is certain: David Fincher won't be involved with the film.

    Is Ang Lee's 'Life Of Pi' The Oscar-Contending, Blockbuster Surprise Of 2012? CinemaCon Wowed By Early Footage

    Let's just get this out of the way: making snap judgements about a movie based on ten minutes of footage is a bit ridiculous, but that said, first impressions mean a lot. It wasn't a fun week for Peter Jackson at CinemaCon who saw his 48 fps preview of "The Hobbit" heavily scr...

    Review: 'The Hangover Part II' Is A Lazy, Unpleasant & Unfunny Mess

    Unlike most of the summer movies, which seem to be thundering into theaters without any real anticipation beyond the cacophonous marketing hype, "The Hangover Part II" seems to be a film people are unreasonably excited for. The 2009 original, directed by Todd Phillips, has metamorphosed from simply being the biggest R-rated comedy of all time (and winner of a Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy Golden Globe) to being a movie that average filmgoers consider an instant "classic" of the genre and a staple of any fun-lover's DVD collection. (It's also the biggest selling comedy DVD of all time. Jesus.) The prospect of another movie, again sta...
