By: Erik Davis on May 22, 2009 at 12:50PM Comments

Yup, Hollywood has officially moved past your old board games and action figures – now they’re looking to chewing gum for inspiration.

By: Erik Davis on May 20, 2009 at 6:41PM Comments (1)

Oh c’mon – you know deep down inside (in places we only talk about on Friday nights and sometimes during a Wednesday matinee), you really have a thing for Blue Man Group. Sure, they may not be as trendy as they were 10 years ago, but they’re blue and funny and their music ain’t half bad. So why not give them a movie? Variety says the IMAX 3D movie featuring the Blue Man...

Scoop This: 'He-Man' Nabs New Writer, Van Damme Returns to Form and 'Watchmen' DVD Announced

By: Erik Davis on May 13, 2009 at 6:00PM Comments

Those of us who are children of the ‘80s will surely remember "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe." Yes, there was that cheesy 1987 live-action movie starring Dolph Lundgren, but we'll forget about that for the time being. My point is He-Man deserves to be resurrected from his bland and boring 1980s playground and re-born as a brave and powerful warrior for a whole new 2.0...

Scoop This: Star-Studded 'Valentine's Day', Common to Play Mr. T and Five Minutes of 'Terminator'

By: Erik Davis on May 12, 2009 at 3:33PM Comments (1)

With the success of He’s Just Not That Into You this past February, Hollywood discovered a new trend: Romantic comedies that feature a star-studded ensemble will probably make a lot of money at the movie theater during a pathetically dull time at the box office (ie: middle of winter). Thus, New Line/Warner Brothers is trying to put together another one of those celeb-stacked rom-coms, but...

McG shot...

By: Erik Davis on May 6, 2009 at 6:28PM Comments

You know you want details on that planned Karate Kid remake starring Will Smith’s kid Jaden, and you know you want me to give them to you. I know, I’m just as peeved about a Karate Kid remake as you are, but Moviehole – who currently have a run down of the new film’s plot – claim the script is "very good," and that it’s "different enough to be...

Scoop This: Secret ‘Star Wars’ Production, More on ‘Little Fockers’ and New ‘Transformers 2’ Trailer

By: Erik Davis on May 1, 2009 at 2:55PM Comments (2)

Right now in Los Angeles, LucasFilm is shooting some secret Star Wars footage featuring Boba Fett, C3PO, Admiral Ackbar and Jawas. No, it’s not for a commercial, one of the Star Wars-related TV shows or, thankfully, another live-action movie – instead, they’re filming new footage to be included in Disney’s Star Tours ride. The ride, which hasn’t received any...

Scoop This: Drop Dead Russell Brand, a Humpty Dumpty Movie and Channing Tatum Joining 'Twilight' Saga?

By: Erik Davis on April 28, 2009 at 4:33PM Comments

Do any of you actually remember the 1991 comedy Drop Dead Fred? Some of you might be a bit too young to remember the movie in theaters, and from what I’ve heard you actually have to travel to Middle-Earth (and more specifically, Mordor) in order to find a copy of this film on video or DVD. That said, someone brave enough in Hollywood (ahem, Universal) thought Drop Dead Fred needed to be...

By: Erik Davis on April 27, 2009 at 4:02PM Comments

All we’ve seen of James Cameron’s Avatar so far are behind-the-scenes green-screen images of James Cameron and his actors hard at work on what some think could eventually become the grandest moviegoing experience of the year. Cameron has promised that his $200 million-plus film will present us with a new kind of 3D experience (mixing live-action and animation) the likes of nothing...

Scoop This: New 'Predator' Sequel, Denzel is 'Unstoppable' and First 'New Moon' Footage

By: Erik Davis on April 24, 2009 at 7:20PM Comments

Forget Sin City 2, Robert Rodriguez has just signed a deal with 20th Century Fox to bring a brand new Predator sequel to the big screen that, according to reports, will be "a bold new chapter in the Predator universe." Right off the bat, the studio has slapped a July 7, 2010 release date on the film – which, on the surface, feels a little rushed, but Rodriguez likes to move fast...

By: Erik Davis on April 23, 2009 at 4:15PM Comments

After finding mild success with the all-CGI Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie back in 2007, it’s just been announced that those pesky Turtles will once again make a triumphant return to the big screen – except this time they’re going back to live action. Fans will remember that the last time these Ninja Turtles hit theaters in live-action mode was wayyy back in the early 1990s...

We already showed you the new bare-chested werewolf photo spread, and now there’s big, big news on the Eclipse director front...David Slade is the guy. David Who?

Scoop This: 'Toy Story 3' Teaser, Michael Bay's 'Pulp Fiction' and Lions, Tigers and Bears Hit the Big Screen

By: Erik Davis on April 20, 2009 at 3:31PM Comments

The first trailer for Toy Story 3 is set to hit screens in front of a special 3D double billing of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 on October 3rd (remember Disney is re-releasing both of those films in 3D before the third installment hits), but folks at the Digital Cinema Summit had a chance to taste part three before anyone else when Disney decided to screen a very brief teaser during the conference,...

Scoop This: 'Wanted' Sequel Heats Up, Matthew McConaughey Delivers an Exchange Student and Video of the Week

By: Erik Davis on April 17, 2009 at 4:29PM Comments

Last summer’s Wanted was one of those fun, adrenaline-fueled action films that totally deserves a sequel. Well, good news is you’re getting that sequel…but the guy writing it is the same dude behind, um, Pooh’s Heddalump Movie, The Jungle Book 2, The Lion King 1 1/2, The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning and Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure. His name is Evan...
