    2011: The Year The Big Projects Died & Studios Discovered (A Little) Fiscal Responsibility

    The giant financial crisis that began in 2008 is probably the single event that's had the most wide-reaching ramifications since 9/11, but, as ever, it's taken a few years for the film industry to reflect that, bar the occasional handy coincidence, like "Up in the Air." For the most part, 2011 was t...

    'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' Pirate Sentenced To A Year In Prison, Film's Director Gavin Hood Still Goes Unpunished

    Piracy and bootlegging is, obviously, a major problem for the film industry, as it has been since the invention of the VHS. But in a day and age when everyone and their mom knows how to torrent, and seemingly don't mind watching terrible-quality DivXs shot on a constantly-shaking camera phone, it's ...

    James Mangold Calls 'The Wolverine' A Dark Character Piece Like Eastwood's 'The Outlaw Josey Wales'

    'Walk the Line' Director Also Likens It To 'Chinatown,' Calls It A Foreign-Language Super-Hero Drama, Film-Noir & Detective Story; Reveals He Spoke With AronofskyEvidenced by his success with “Cop Land,” “Walk the Line,” “3:10 To Yuma” and “Knight and Day,” James Mangold has a knack for turning populist entertainment into personal expression. But when 20th Century Fox announced that Mangold would be taking on “The Wolverine,” a sequel to “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” his fans seemed concerned he might be overwhelmed by the enormity of a franchise sequel, and the constant scrutiny that seems to come with one. (Never mind the fact that he’s direc...

    Hugh Jackman Doubts There Will Be A 'X-Men 4' Movie, But Is Still Open To More 'Wolverine' Films

    Actor Says He Asked Darren Aronofsky To Helm 'X-Men: The Last Stand,' Before He Dropped Out Of 'The Wolverine'This weekend Hugh Jackman was on hand in Los Angeles to discuss his robot boxing movie, “Real Steel,” which hits theaters October 7th. Early buzz on that flick is good and the studio has enough faith that they’ve already begun development on a sequel. But before that sequel, Jackman will sing alongside Russell Crowe in “Les Miserables” and, once again, return to the role that made him for “The Wolverine,” the much-discussed, long in-development sequel to 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” Scripted by Christopher McQuarrie, the story i...
