    Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, Tom Hardy In "This Means War" (On The Audience?)

    Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, Tom Hardy – any one of them could carry a romance or an action movie alone. Put all three together and the results are at least three times worse. Or maybe it’s just that the director, McG, has misplaced the feel for slick, popcorn action that made Cha...

    McG Feels 'Guilty' For Fox; Clip From 'This Means War' Arrives

    With a resume that boasts stuff like the forgettable “We Are Marshall” and the misguided “Terminator: Salvation,” McG doesn't exactly make for an auteur worth following, however, he has continued to make a living producing sub-Michael Bay shlock and proven himself to be ...

    McG To Direct David Guggenheim Penned Thriller 'Puzzle Palace'

    With the cinematic visionary McG having already tackled a TV adaptation (the "Charlie's Angels" movies), a weepy sports drama ("We Are Marshall"), an unnecessary sequel ("Terminator Salvation"), and right around the corner, a romantic action/comedy ("This Means War") it looks like the man with three...

    Space Is The Place: Fox & McG Team For Sci Fi Film; Shane Abbess To Helm '7th Day' By Ben Ripley

    Regardless of the overall eye-melting shittiness of "Battle: Los Angeles," the film dominated the box office this past weekend proving that audiences still want to see shit blow up real good, no matter how awful it is.

    Producers Go To Ouija Board To Hire 'Ouija' Director, Come Away With McG

    What's going on at some studios is amazing, and if the directors of the '60s and '70s could see what's happened, they would shit a brick. Filmmakers are no longer being wooed, they're seemingly being plucked based on how their square pegs fit into round holes, with industry heads now using the word ...

    Creatures From The Depths Of Hell: McG & Breck Eisner Competing For Director's Chair On 'Ouija'

    Spirit, Please Come Forward And Cancel This Movie When it was announced that the second Hasbro property after the gates, following Peter Berg's actioner "Battleship," would be "Ouija," based on the board game that's been succesfully freaking out teenagers for decades, most, including us, assumed it would be some kind of teen horror flick -- after all, the likes of "Drag Me To Hell" and "Long Time Dead" have used the system as a conceit within the horror genre. But Universal have given the film a key tentpole slot, on November 9th, 2012, and we began to suspect that the film might be aiming at more quadrants than simply horror fans. And indee...
