    Will An In-Development 'Hawkman' Movie Be Part 'Indiana Jones,' 'Da Vinci Code' & 'Ghost'?

    Super hero movies. You might be asking yourself, when will this hegemony end? Well, in case you haven't already guessed, as far as the box-office demand shows, they won't be going anywhere anytime soon. Case in point, while Marvel Films & Disney keep looking deeper into their archives to see which B...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Pirates 4' Scores Biggest Global Debut Of All-Time Despite Being A Shitty Movie

    This weekend, Disney pooled their resources with Jerry Bruckheimer and produced an insta-blockbuster. Apathy is the name of the game with “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” which scored the biggest bow of 2011 despite being a piece of shit that grossed lower in its opening frame than its...

    Darren Aronofsky Being Pursued By Warner Bros. And Disney For 'Moses' & 'Maleficent'?

    After spending a decade scraping together financing on his films (only working with a major studio once on his passion project "The Fountain"), it seems like suddenly everybody wants to be in the Darren Aronofsky business. We guess that happens when your $13 million-budgeted ballet thriller goes on to make over $100 million dollars and wins an Oscar for its leading lady, despite, as the director has noted, every major studio passing on the film and financing being raised independently. Fox thought they'd get first crack at some of that Aronofsky "edge" giving him a 2-year development deal and hiring him to take on "The Wolverine," a standalon...

    Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows' & 'Southern Rivals' Get 2012 Release Dates From Warner Bros.

    The world has paused briefly for the Cannes Film Festival, but sorry, it has not stopped the tentpole studio gears from churning. Warner Bros., in particular, is not sleeping. They have dropped three new dates on an unsuspecting audience.

    A Martin Luther King Movie Is Coming, But It's Not The One You Were Hoping For

    Well, the good news is civil rights leader Martin Luther King is going to get his due on the screen, but the bad news is that it won't be the mooted Paul Greengrass film "Memphis." As you might recall, funding on that film was yanked by Universal after the Martin Luther King estate raised concerns a...

    $9 Million Added To Budget, More VFX Houses Hired To Finish 'Green Lantern' In Time For Release Date

    It seems completely against common sense, but as studios continue to turn toward making expensive tentpoles their bread and butter, they also seem to be shrinking the production timelines for these films with one year or less now becoming the norm. "X-Men: First Class" will be coming in under the wire to make it's June release date; "Hunger Games" is still casting and it's now eleven months until it's scheduled to hit theaters and "The Avengers" just started filming this week for a release date that will arrive almost exactly a year later. And with special effects usually dominating these films, filmmakers and effect houses are feeling the cr...

The writer behind "Cars," "Bolt" and "Tangled" but perhaps most importantly, this summer's highly anticipated "Crazy, Stupid, Love." has ridden the early buzz on that film all the way to a seven-figure payday for his next script which just happen...

    Box Office: 'Rio' First 2011 Release To Crack $40 Million Opening Weekend; 'Scream' Goes Quiet

    There’s no way to sugarcoat this: it’s been a dismal year at the box office. Studios have their fingers crossed in regards to a tepid-looking summer schedule, but many were hoping the season could be kick(punch)-started early with a strong April, as two new films were tracking well over $40 million ...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Hop' Defeats Four Newcomers; 'Your Highness' Flops Loudly And Rudely

    Earlier in the year, the tepid box office returns were something to be ignored, as 2011 was competing with the previous year, with both “Avatar” and then the anomaly of “Alice In Wonderland” each raking in a cool billion. Well, it’s April, and it’s time for Hollywood to panic. There have been no genuine out-of-the-box hits so far this year and lots of flops, and the two (barely) $100 million grossers considered underperformers (“Rango” and “Just Go With It”). Let’s face it, part of it is a failure of marketing, but the blame must be laid on inadequate product. Even when it comes to the early year doldrums, this has been a banner year for garb...
