    5 Michael Fassbender Films You May Not Have Seen

    Michael Fassbender has had a good run of it these past few years. It's a hot streak (one which saw him the recipient of the "staggering honor" that was Playlist Man of the Year 2011) that looks set to continue with the Irish/German actor moving between critically adored arthouse films and broad-appe...

    20 Superhero Movies That Couldn't Fly All The Way To The Big Screen

    This weekend "The Wolverine," starring Hugh Jackman as the adamantium-clawed avenger (is he ever not playing Wolverine?), will be slashing its way onto screens nationwide. But as fans know, this wasn't the original vision that Jackman and Fox had in mind. No, that version was to be helmed by Darren ...

    Review: 'Trespass' Is a Hopelessly Uninspired Home Invasion Thriller

    With a speaking voice that often (and unexpectedly) devolves into histrionic yelps and an assortment of goofy, ever-changing hair pieces, Nicolas Cage has become such a creative loose cannon you often want to check in on his latest effort in the off chance that he’s delivered some creative crazy goo...

    The career of Joel Schumacher is a colorful one, filled with unpredictable twists and turns, hits and misses, star vehicles and no-name indies. He’s been everywhere and done everything, and his latest, “Trespass,” which hits theaters next Friday, is his second collaboration with Nicolas Cage after “...

    Joel Schumacher Tries To Pull Off His Best Michael Haneke Impression In New 'Tresspass' Photos

    Oh, Joel Schumacher, with your patchiest of patchy careers ever (though some Playlisters will outright call it an awful one). There is some interesting work in your flawed ouevre oeuvre, including "Tigerland," and "Falling Down," but so-so efforts ("Veronica Guerin") are usually overcome by the ungood ("Phone Booth," "The Number 23," "Twelve"). Pitched somewhere between a B-movie director with good intentions and poor execution and a thoughtless Hollywood A-list director without much vision whose best days are far behind him (think of the days when his career was big enough to score him two "Batman" films, even if he did kill the franchise un...

    You've Been Warned: Joel Schumacher Directing 'The Hive' Penned By Guy Who Wrote 'Thir13en Ghosts'

    Director Joel Schumacher is going to keep making movies whether or not anybody wants to see them. While mainstream audiences probably remember his last outing, the silly conspiracy thriller "The Number 23," he's actually made two more movies since: the horror pic "Blood Creek" and the godawful teens...

    John Carpenter To Direct Comic Adaptation 'Darkchylde'

    First Look At 'Trespass'; New Films From Jennifer Lynch, Dennis Iliadis & Niels Arden OplevEven though "Fangland" with Hilary Swank seems to have fallen apart, John Carpenter seems well on his way with a new project, an adaptation of the comic "Darkchylde." Created by Randy Queen, the comics follow "a young girl named Ariel Chylde who regularly sheds her skin and turns into her deepest, darkest nightmares." Richard Taylor of WETA recently dropped some test footage from the film (which you can watch below) and indicated they hope to get things going on the film within the year. We've never really paid much attention to the comic, and consideri...
