    'Locke' Writer/Director Steven Knight To Pen 'World War Z' Sequel

    While “World War Z” is now viewed as the modern-day runaway film project and all that implies of ego—hubris, irresponsibility and whatnot—the project began with the best of intentions. Brad Pitt’s Plan B Pictures, the same company that developed and won a Best Picture Oscar for “12 Years A Slave,” w...

    ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ & 'Django Unchained' Top List Of Most Pirated Movies Of 2013

    "I would be a liar if I was to say, across the board, no piracy," Quentin Tarantino told Cannes Film Festival press back in 2004 when he was serving as Jury president. That said, he wasn't advocating nicking movies that are legally available, instead saying that it's an option to view movies that ar...

    Redbox's 10 Most Rented Films Of 2013 Reveal People Really Like Melissa McCarthy

    Sometimes it's hard to tell if the buzz around an actor or actress exists simply among entertainment writers or has currency in the real world. And so, when Melissa McCarthy broke out in 2011 with "Bridesmaids," earning an Oscar nomination (among other accolades) it remained to be seen if that succe...

    Crash! Boom! Pow! The 15 Best Action Sequences Of 2013

    It seemed as though 2013 was positively clogged up with major "event" movies, each one bigger, louder, and more expensive than the last. Every week some new gargantuan thingummy was trying to one-up the previous week's path of destruction. While many of these movies turned out to be numbing and dull...

    'World War Z' Sequel Digs Up A Director

    Say whatever you want about the troubled post-production, reshoots and turmoil, the bottom line is this: "World War Z" was much better than it had any right to be under those circumstances, and moreover, it's Brad Pitt's highest-grossing film of his career. End of discussion. And not only was a sequ...

    By now, we all pretty much know about the struggles the filmmakers had while making “World War Z.” In spite of the fact that the film actually turned out to be a major success, initial reports of its “inevitable failure” hit everyone involved with the film pretty hard.

    Marc Forster Discusses Scrapped Ending For 'World War Z,' Brad Pitt Says Sequel Ideas Already Brewing

    "World War Z," as we noted in our recent look at this year's blockbusters, had a pretty great summer. More that $200 million in the U.S. and another half a billion bucks worldwide is good going for anyone (including Brad Pitt—it's now his highest-grossing film ever), but it's especially good going f...

    While we're only a few weeks into August, summer blockbuster season is pretty much winding down for the year. Last weekend brought "Elysium," the last major tentpole for the moment (albeit an underperforming one), and the rest of August is mostly made up of lo-fi programmers and would-be-franchises ...

    ‘World War Z’ Endings: The Bloody Battle In Russia Vs. Damon Lindelof's Rewrite, What Was Changed & Why

    History is littered with movie productions that went haywire and melted down (we recently chronicled a few that survived bad buzz and some that didn't). Either imploding on set because of director/actor spats, budgets that ballooned into excess causing for major flops, or any number of confluent for...
