    Futuristic Takes On 'The Count Of Monte Cristo' And 'Heart Of Darkness' On The Way For Some Reason

    Ever since 1956's "Forbidden Planet" appropriated the plot of William Shakespeare's "The Tempest" for a space-set tale of killer robots, the easy solution to any over-done classic tale has been to move it into the future. "High Noon" in space? That's "Outland"! "Treasure Island" in space? "Treasure ...

    Christopher Nolan Producing Supernatural Thriller For Terminally Underrated Director Keith Gordon

    Becoming a true titan of cinema, of which there are few, the kind who can get anything greenlit, who take critical plaudits and giant box office success in equal measure, isn't easy. Even Martin Scorsese and Stanley Kubrick relied on studio patronage to get their films out, leaving... let's say Alfr...

    Warner Bros. Wants To Go 'True North' With Ed Helms

    The rise of Ed Helms has been pretty phenomenal. The former "The Daily Show" correspondent got a big career boost joining the third season of "The Office" in 2006 as the hapless Andy Bernard and then a few years later rocketed to stardom in "The Hangover." But the actor has been playing it cool sinc...

    Warner Bros. Goes All In On Superheroes, Plans 'Green Lantern 2'

    "Green Lantern," which "reportedly" cost $300 million to make and market, opened to a soft $53 million last weekend, before plummeting 65% in weekend two amidst bad buzz from critics, audiences and the general press. Sounds like it's time for a sequel!

    Weekend Box Office: 'Cars 2' Continues Pixar Formula, 'Green Lantern' Plummets

    The numbers on “Cars 2” don’t actually matter, except for the stat-hounds regularly following the weekly box office noise (us!). “Cars 2” exists to facilitate Disney’s biggest merchandising cash cow, a multi-billion (annually!) property that needs no further justification.

    'Jupiter Rising': Do The Wachowskis Have A New Secret Project Moving Forward At Warner Bros?

    As this writer posited a few months ago, there's an argument to be made that the co-directing Wachowski siblings Andy and Lana lost their mojo after "The Matrix" and the spark that once made them special has faded. Their follow-up films have been lackluster: “Speed Racer,” the last two “Matrix” movi...

    Commence Bleeding From the Eyeballs: New Vampire Project 'Blood Wars' Announced

    Everyone get ready to shake their butt to the Monster Mash for the sixty millionth time, as that ‘vampire trend’ everyone warned you about in 2008, having clogged up the film industry’s arteries for three years now, begins manifesting itself as a massive uncontrollable death-rattle coronary before – with any luck -- finally spasming out and flat-lining. The Wrap reports that the new project clamoring for our attention is “Blood Wars”, and will involve a “radical reinvention of vampire mythology”, whatever that means. Unless the next twist on the vampire ‘mythos’ will be, hopefully, to disappear forever, there is no way that any part of that s...

    Weekend Box-Office: Is 'Green Lantern' The End Of The Superhero Gravy Train?

    Perspective is necessary. $53 million is a whole lotta money. $53 million could buy several houses, it could feed many people, it could save lives. $53 million is also a pretty good opening for a somewhat higher-budgeted film, provided advertising isn’t through the roof and there aren’t a massive am...
