    Discuss: As 'World War Z' Gets Seven Weeks Of Reshoots, Why Are So Many Tentpoles Being Delayed & Reworked?

    Reshoots: they're the new principal photography, it would seem. Every so often, a story will crop up that some major movie has reassembled its cast and crew for what's usually referred to as "additional photography."

    Paramount Delay 'World War Z' Until June 21, 2013 & Move Tom Cruise Vehicle 'One Shot' Up To Christmas 2012

    Release dates are pretty crucial to a film's success. Put your prize tentpole up against another film aiming for the same audience, and you'll cannibalize each other. Place your movie on exactly the right place in the calendar, and you'll find yourselves with a licence to print money. And that's why...

    The Playlist's Most Anticipated Escapist/Popcorn Films Of 2012

    'World War Z' Being Eyed As A Potential Trilogy; Movie Described As Mix Between Jason Bourne & 'The Walking Dead'

    In case you didn't get the memo, for the most part, the major studios no longer sweat the small stuff. It's all about the tentpole these days, and the bigger the better with more and more movies going all in on their budgets, and then crossing their fingers that the all important first weeke...

    Marc Forster Talks 'World War Z' 'Quantum of Solace' & The Risk Of Failure

    We love a chameleon here at The Playlist; few things make us happier than a director who's able to leap between genres and style with aplomb. And Swiss-born director Marc Forster is, if nothing else, a chameleon. In the decade since he broke through in the U.S. with "Monster's Ball," the helmer has ...
