    The Wachowskis & Tom Tykwer's 'Cloud Atlas' Now Arrives On October 26th; Susan Sarandon Plays An Indian Man

    So just how messed up and bonkers will The Wachowskis' and Tom Tykwer's adaptation of David Mitchell's "Cloud Atlas" be? Well, Hugh Grant will apparently be doing a lot of "killing and raping," and as for Susan Sarandon? She tells Postmedia that her small role fi...

    Channing Tatum Confirms He'll Be In 'Jupiter Ascending'; Calls 'Bitter Pill' Co-Star Rooney Mara The "Most Terrifying Person I've Ever Met"

    You'd think The Wachowskis would have gotten their epic sci-fi trilogy kicks out of their system with "The Matrix" but evidently not -- the duo are gearing up "Jupiter Ascending," a planned kickstarter to a trilogy that is set in a universe where human beings are not the...

    'Jupiter Ascending' Plot Rumored To Be Pretty Much Like 'Snow White And The Huntsman'; Joseph Gordon-Levitt Eyed For Role

    Just like Woody Allen or Terrence Malick, The Wachowskis don't like to share what their movies are about until they're good and ready to, but as these things generally tend to go, somebody somewhere usually gets their hands on some kind of material and shares it with somebody else and before...

    As 'Battleship' Flops: Ten Other Memorable Box-Office Bombs

    To have one giant money-losing tentpole is unfortunate. To have two starts to look careless, and that's what's happened to Taylor Kitsch. The actor, who broke out on TV's "Friday Night Lights," was seen as Hollywood's next great hope, picked out to star in two great big blo...

    Mila Kunis Confirms Role In The Wachowskis' 'Jupiter Ascending'

    While we're still waiting for the ambitious "Cloud Atlas" to show up -- all we know so far is that has an A-list playing multiple roles and Hugh Grant raping and killing people -- the directing siblings The Wachowskis are already gearing up their next, equally secretive "Jupiter A...

    Channing Tatum & Mila Kunis Offered Leads In The Wachowskis 'Jupiter Ascending'

    With Natalie Portman recently signing on to spend most the year hanging with Terrence Malick on the probably-not-called-"Lawless"-anymore and "Knight Of Cups," it looks like her rumored appearance in The Wachowskis "Jupiter Ascending" won't work out. But her "B...

    The Wachowskis, A Grand Piano, A VW Beetle & A Hover-Bike Star In First Image From 'Cloud Atlas'

    You can tell that 2012 is going to be a strange sort of year when the boldest, riskiest film set for release stars a brace of A-listers, including the traditionally safe-playing likes of Tom Hanks, Hugh Grant and Halle Berry, and is directed by the pair behind one of the biggest franchises of the la...

    ‘Jupiter Ascending’ Will Be The Wachowskis Next Film, Shooting To Start Spring 2012

    First cropping up in the middle of the summer, the mysterious "Jupiter Rising" (now being called "Jupiter Ascending") was added to the already lengthy list of movies being eyed by The Wachowskis. And since 2008's eyeball-melting "Speed Racer," they've certainly had no shortage of movies to choose from. While "Cloud Atlas" is now in front of cameras, “Hood,” an “urban retelling” of the Robin Hood mythology with Will Smith sought to star, and the R-rated Iraq War gay romance picture “CN-9” (aka “Cobalt Neutral 9”) were also tossed around as possibilities. But the former sounds, frankly, pretty terrible and latter is not going to get financing f...

    Hugh Grant Joins All-Star Cast Of Tom Tykwer & The Wachowskis' 'Cloud Atlas'

    I'm Just A Boy/Girl/Robot, Standing In Front Of A Girl/Boy/Post-Apocalyptic Tribesman, Asking Them To Love Him/Her/ItIt might be difficult to throw a rock in a multiplex in the next few months without hitting a movie starring Matt Damon, Jude Law or Rachel Weisz (let alone Jessica Chastain, who has enough movies to play on every screen), but not every actor has the same work ethic. Some like to take their time over their films, picking only the roles that really interest them; Daniel Day-Lewis, for instance. Some stick fairly rigorously to a one-movie-a-year-policy. And some would rather do pretty much anything than make movies; in particular...
