    Universal Wants To Go On An FBI Wedding With Steve Carell

    There is probably no comic leading man in Hollywood right now hotter than Steve Carell. It seems each week there is another project announced with the actor/comedian attached and this week is no different.

    Weekend Box Office: 'Cars 2' Continues Pixar Formula, 'Green Lantern' Plummets

    The numbers on “Cars 2” don’t actually matter, except for the stat-hounds regularly following the weekly box office noise (us!). “Cars 2” exists to facilitate Disney’s biggest merchandising cash cow, a multi-billion (annually!) property that needs no further justification. As Pixar seems like a stud...

    Paul Haggis Gets His Own Spy Franchise, Adapting Daniel Silva's Ex-Mossad Agent Gabriel Allon

    To his credit, Paul Haggis has not used the fact that his coming-out party as director, "Crash" won Best Picture at the Academy Awards, to churn out a series of Oscar-bait films. Instead, the "Due South" creator has mostly stuck to the kind of middlebrow thrillers to which he's suited, ranging from ...

    Weekend Box-Office: Is 'Green Lantern' The End Of The Superhero Gravy Train?

    Perspective is necessary. $53 million is a whole lotta money. $53 million could buy several houses, it could feed many people, it could save lives. $53 million is also a pretty good opening for a somewhat higher-budgeted film, provided advertising isn’t through the roof and there aren’t a massive am...

The onslaught from these very critics seems to be as strong now as it's ever been wi...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Super 8' Is A Super Performer For Paramount, 'Judy Moody' Has A Bummer Summer

    Call this one a victory for Paramount, and a big one at that. “Super 8,” which opened to $37 million, was advertised with only the slightest of peekaboos, an ad campaign that played less coy and more stubbornly mysterious. While the film was pitched on the name of Steven Spielberg, the filmmaker has...

    Jason Bateman Joins Vince Vaughn In ‘Insane Laws’ Directed By 'The Break-Up' Writer

    Well, this pairing was rather inevitable, was it not? Take wild man Vince Vaughn and team him up with straight man Owen Wilson (oh wait, that's been done), uhh, Kevin James, errr, well you get the picture. This time, Vaughn's foil for his latest comedic vehicle "Insane Laws" will be none other than ...

    Is Universal Rebooting 'The Wolfman' Franchise Already?

    Remember "The Wolfman"? If you don't, it's probably best you don't try and summon the memory and if you do, you probably want those two hours purged from your brain. Released in early 2010, Universal's first attempt to bring back their movie monster franchise was a disaster pretty much from the start. We won't rehash every nitty gritty detail, but the long and short of it is, the movie started promisingly with Mark Romanek at the helm but feeling the budgetary squeeze and pressure from the suits he bailed at the last minute only to be replaced by Joe Johnston who tried to salvage a production that was going in about five directions all at the...
