    Steven Spielberg Blames George Lucas For How Dumb 'Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull' Was

    But Takes Full Credit For Nuking The FridgeWhile the film has its delusional defenders, most rational people can agree that "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" was pretty bad. A stain on an otherwise solid trilogy -- yes, even the uneven 'Temple of Doom' -- taking the pulpy good times of the previous three films into outrageous sci-fi territory, the result was a movie that even managed to make Cate Blanchett look ridiculous. And while Shia LaBeouf got pilloried for trashing the movie -- Harrison Ford recently called him "a fucking idiot" for his comments -- it looks like Steven Spielberg is finally ready to own up that the mo...

    Hayley Atwell, Diane Kruger & Kate Beckinsale Contend For 2nd Female Lead In Tom Cruise's 'Oblivion'

    It seems that Tom Cruise can't stop making movies right now. He's got "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" and "Rock of Ages" in the bag, he's currently shooting "One Shot," and after that the suddenly busy actor will roll right into the "Tron: Legacy" director Joseph Kosinski's "Oblivion." The mo...

    Kerry Washington Confirmed As Broomhilda In Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained'

    After a raft of casting that has seen pretty much every role big and small get filled, the one big question mark remaining for Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" was who would take on the part of Broomhilda, the lead character's slave wife who is sold off and raped, setting Django on his mission...

    David Slade To Direct Adaptation Of Crime Noir Graphic Novel 'Coward' That Sounds A Lot Like 'Drive'

    David Slade's last move was "Twilight: Eclipse" but he seems to have run into a few stumbling blocks getting his next film mounted. He had lined up the vampire horror flick "The Last Voyage Of Demeter" but potential star Noomi Rapace cast doubt on the project in the spring over her involvement and not much has been heard about it since. The most high profile gig Slade landed was taking on the reboot of "Daredevil" but that too seems to be in a weird limbo, with no other updates at all since it was first announced. He was also in the mix for "The Wolverine" but we all know how that turned out. Now it looks like he's got an interesting new proj...

    Summit Grabs Release Dates For 'Red 2,' 'Warm Bodies,' 'Ender's Game,' 'Now You See Me,' Others

    Even though they've had a quiet year, with "Source Code" and "50/50" being their biggest hits, Summit is merely laying low, with two larger efforts slotted for Christmas time releases: "The Darkest Hour," and some obscure vampire film about marriages and babies. It makes sense that the next step is ...

    Disney Would Prefer 'The Rum Diary' Didn't Exist, Bans ABC Networks From Talking About It

    'Pirates Of The Caribbean 5' Apparently Aiming To Start Production In Summer 2012It's easy to forget what a roll of the dice Marvel took in casting Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark in "Iron Man." At the time, the actor was still best known for his checkered and controversial past, and the studio was concerned about attaching Robert Downey Jr. to one of their centerpiece franchises as any bad behaviour would put not only the box office into jeopardy, but sequels, licensing opportunities and more. And while Johnny Depp certainly isn't a bad boy, it's that kind of thinking that still dominates the executives overseeing lucrative, four-quadrant fr...

    Whether you like it or not, Warner Bros' "Akira" remake is now greenlit and moving ahead. With “Unknown” and “Orphan” director Jaume Collet-Serra set to direct and "Tron: Legacy" star Garrett Hedlund ahead of the pack to take on one of the lead roles, it seems the filmmakers are actively looking to ...
