    Christopher Nolan Tops Warner Bros. Wishlist For 'The Twilight Zone'

    Michael Bay, Alfonso Cuaron & Rupert Wyatt Also In The MixSo yeah, we sort of forgot about this one, but Warner Bros. has been trying to get a reboot of "The Twilight Zone" off the ground for a while now. Way back in 2008 Rand Ravich ("The Astronaut's Wife") was hired to write the script, and then l...

    Weekend Box Office: ‘Transformers 3’ Dominates Again, Now Highest Grossing Domestic Film Of 2011

    'Horrible Bosses' & 'Zookeeper' Start Out StrongTwo weeks ago, Paramount Pictures announced that it had crossed the $1 billion mark at the domestic box office, making it the first studio to accomplish the milestone this year. This was the Wednesday that "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" was released, so suffice to say Paramount are going to have a hell of a year. To little surprise, Michael Bay's thunderous monstrosity of a picture dominated the box-office once more this weekend, adding a not-too-shabby $47 million dollar haul to its total despite a 51.9% drop-off. And that drop-off is lighter than "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," sugges...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Transformers 3' Obliterates 4th Of July Weekend Record

    But Underperforms Domestically Over 5 Days, 'Larry Crowne' Can't Get Out Of First GearThere's astronomically good and slightly bad to report as the sequel to a less-than-critically-loved-blockbuster-created-solely-to-move-toys hit the marketplace. Michael Bay's “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon” underperformed domestically compared to its predecessor. It grossed $97.4 million in its Friday to Sunday opening box-office weekend, compared to the $108 million "Transformers:Revenge of the Fallen" accumulated in 2009 without the aid of inflated 3D ticket surcharges (and yet, it's won the top-grossing weekend of 2011 so far). But an overseas bonanza d...

    This Will Go Over Well, We're Sure: Michael Bay Writes To Theater Projectionists

    We'd always assumed the humble projectionist had next-to-no contact with the people who actually made the movies, but recent weeks have shown that that's not true at all; the recent disclosure that Terrence Malick had personally written to theaters across the country with certain specifications for "The Tree of Life" has unleashed a sea of similar memos, including Stanley Kubrick on "Barry Lyndon" and David Lynch on "Mulholland Drive." And it's not surprising, considering that all filmmakers worth their salt would want their film to be displayed in the best possible manner. The latest to join th...

    Film Will Still Suck, But Less DimlyThese are, excuse the pun, dark days for stereo cinema. The 3D novelty might have helped "Avatar" to become the biggest-grossing film of all time, causing everyone and their mums to jump on board, but the shine has come off this year: "Green Lantern" was barely he...
