    Gareth Evans Is Action Director On 'The Night Comes For Us,' Emir Kusturica Returns For 'Love & War'

    An assortment of news, rolling in from Cannes like the waves on the beach there. Probably. I've never been. Anyway. "The Raid" helmer Gareth Evans is currently in production on his most-likely bone-crunching follow-up "Berandal," and, while he's got some Hollywood projects in development, isn't goin...

    Andrew Eaton Says U.S. Version Of 'The Trip' Without Steve Coogan & Rob Brydon Could Be On The Way

    Plus Updates On Michael Winterbottom Projects 'The Promised Land,' 'Bailout,' 'Seven Days' And 'Paul Raymond's Wonderful World Of Erotica' Relationships are key in the filmmaking world, particularly in terms of actually getting the damn things made, and it's no surprise that many of the most successful filmmakers are ones with long-running close partnerships with producers. One of the closest today is that between eclectic filmmaker Michael Winterbottom and his long-term producing partner Andrew Eaton. The pair first worked together on the 1994 TV series "Family," founding Revolution Films together around the same time, and have made a film a...

    Steve Coogan & Rob Brydon Set To Travel Italy With Michael Winterbottom For Sequel To 'The Trip'

    Many suspected that after "Tristram Shandy: A Cock And Bull Story," if you were to get Michael Winterbottom to direct Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reading the phone book, it would almost certainly turn out to be rib-tickling stuff. The theory's been put to the test this year with "The Trip," which features the British comics playing themselves on a journey around England's Lake District eating at a series of top restaurants: not exactly "Mr. Popper's Penguins," as far as high concepts go, but it's happily turned out to be one of the best comedies of the year, and something of an indie sleeper, with clips from the film going viral. And the goo...

    The Best Films Of 2011...So Far

    Well, today is the first day of summer, more or less the midpoint of the year, and looking back over the the first six months of 2011, it’s definitely been a bit more of a scattershot movie year compared to the arthouse heavy start of 2010. We'll be honest, compiling this list wasn't exactly easy, the year has been uneven so far, but that said, it's certainly not without highlights: Terrence Malick finally delivered his long awaited film, Woody Allen flexed some of the old magic we love him for, and Michael Winterbottom found life and heart from a familiar comic pairing, while Joe Wright moved completely in a new, exciting direction. Over at ...

    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...
