    Paramount Pictures Goes Fully Digital, Ends Distribution Of Film Prints

    Film is coming to an end, folks. Sad, but true. Why, this time next year, there probably won't be any new films for us here to write about, and we'll be reduced to doing endless retrospectives on ever-more obscure directors and fevered speculation about who will take home the coveted “Best Re-Releas...

    Disney Cracks The Whip, Nabs Rights To Future 'Indiana Jones' Films

    "I would do it in a New York minute, yes," Harrison Ford said earlier this year about returning for another "Indiana Jones" sequel. "I don’t think there is any barrier to Indiana Jones being an old fart. I’m old enough that we don’t need (Sean) Connery any more. I’m old enough to play my own father!...

Joe: Retaliation” hitting theaters this Friday with more Channing Tatum added, that leaves the Brad Pitt-starring zombie-disaster film “World War Z” as the last of Paramount’s troubled productions that had been pushed back from last year.

    William Friedkin Says 'Sorcerer' Finally Getting Digital Transfer, But Won't Be On Criterion

    2012 proved by turns an odd and triumphant year for director William Friedkin, who fashioned Matthew McConaughey's performance in the shockingly good “Killer Joe,” but also was forced into dealing with his troubled past, namely the 1977 suspense drama “Sorcerer.” Legal di...

    Peter Jackson Says He'll Direct The Sequel To 'The Adventures Of Tintin' Right After 'The Hobbit'

    Steven Spielberg Reveals Script For ‘Prisoners Of The Sun’ Is Already FinishedRiding on a big wave of positive reviews, the Steven Spielberg-directed, Peter Jackson-produced "The Adventures Of Tintin" begins opening internationally tomorrow and Sony and Paramount will be watching the ticket sales closely. The motion-capture-fueled project was always planned as a trilogy, with plan being that Spielberg would direct the first film, Jackson the second film with the duties on the final installment still not quite mapped out. However, while audiences overseas are familiar with Hergé's animated hero, he's less well known stateside and it will take ...

    J.J. Abrams & Billy Ray Sell Mystery Adventure Pitch To Paramount

    While pundits wondered if J.J. Abrams could really keep the monster and mystery at the core of "Super 8" under lock and key until it hit theaters, and still draw a mainstream audience to a film with no name stars that was largely sold on the Steven Spielberg association, the proof was in the pudding...

    Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah' Aims To Shoot Spring 2012 As Paramount Comes Aboard With New Regency

    Darren Aronofsky's post-"Black Swan" ride has been as dizzying as any pirouette in the Oscar nominated film. As you already know he somewhat dramatically bailed on "The Wolverine" after much buzz had built up around him taking on the comic movie. And then just as surprisingly, it was revealed that Aronofksy was once again trying to get his long gestating "Noah" off the ground. The project has been in the works since at least 2007 and earlier in the year, it was revealed that Aronofsky was collaborating with comic book artist Nico Henrichon on a graphic novel take on the tale to spur interest in feature adaptation. Well, the roll of the dice w...

    Mission IMAXible: Tom Cruise Spy Sequel To Hit Large-Format Screens Five Days Early On Dec 16th

    Plus 'Inception,' 'Star Trek' & 'Fast Five' To Get IMAX Re-ReleasesThough overruled when it came to our fall preview last week -- too many other staff members have been burned by mediocre franchise installments in the past -- this writer is really kind of excited about "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," the fourth installment in the Tom Cruise-led spy franchise. J.J. Abrams, who got closest to getting it right with "Mission Impossible III" (which has great moments, but doesn't quite hang together), has returned to produce, there's an intriguing, eclectic cast, including Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Simon Pegg, Tom Wilkinson, Josh Hollowa...
