Movie Review: The Snowman

Book Of Eli Movie Review By:Sandwichjohn

Book Of Eli Movie Review
By:Sandwichjohn

I had high hopes for Book of Eli, as I do for any Denzel Washington film, and while it didn’t quite live up to my high hopes it was still a good film. Denzel Washington stars as Eli, the protector of the last known copy of a certain book. It has been 31 years since “the flash” and subsequent war destroyed the world as we know it. The world now is a desolate waste land where water is scarce and books are scarcer. Gary Oldman stars as Carnegie, a corrupted mayor in a makeshift town that Eli wanders into. Carnegie has become obsessed with finding a copy of the book, he believes the words of the book have great power and that he could become a great leader with it. Mila Kunis stars as Solara, the daughter of Carnegie’s companion, who follows Eli after he escapes from the town.

The action sequences were really well done. Towards the beginning of the film there was a great action sequence when Eli encounters some scavengers trying to rob him. Another gr…

Karate Kid Remake Scores Huge On Test Screening

Karate Kid Remake Scores Huge On Test Screening

I don't care how high the movie scores it will never compare to the original film.

Generation Xers may have bemoaned the redo of their 1984 childhood favorite The Karate Kid (I know I did) with none other than silver spooner Jaden Smith taking on the Ralph Macchio role. But, perhaps the results from Sony’s early test screening of the movie from director Harold Zwart (The Pink Panther) will win converts to rejiggering Mr. Miyagi’s karate-lessons-hidden-in-manual labor. (Jackie Chan takes on the Wax on, Wax off mentor role.)

The studio tells EW that the film scored just below Sony’s highest research screening ever, 2005’s Hitch, which ironically starred Jaden Smith’s dad Will, the last reigning movie star. With positive scores in the 97th percentile, the movie, which doesn’t open until June 11, might be one of those films that outdoes everyone’s expectations. Not that it’s likely to match Hitch’s gross, but that film did earn close to $37…

Tekken Movie Trailer

Tekken Movie Trailer

The first trailer for the upcoming Movie Tekken. The movie is based on the early 90's video game that everyone was crazy for and has now been made into a film.

I have never been much of a video game made into a movie fan. I know you all remember Street Fighter." But the movie doesn't look half bad from the trailer. Not a film I am going to go rush out to see but maybe something when there is absolutely nothing to do.

Also the person who put the the trailer is not a fan of /Films. It pops up threw out the trailer.



In the year of 2039, after World Wars destroy much of civilization as we know it, territories are no longer run by governments, but by corporations; the mightiest of which is the Mishima Zaibatsu. In order to keep the masses down, Mishima sponsors the King of Iron Fist Tournament, or Tekken, in which fighters battle until one is left standing, who in turn will receive a lifetime of stardom and wealth. We are introduced to this violent world thro…

Bill Murray Added To The Cast Of Passion Play

Bill Murray Added To The Cast Of Passion Play
Even as Mitch Glazer continues shooting his new drama Passion Play, there are changes afoot as Bill Murray has been added to the cast.

According to Production Weekly, Murray is taking over the role of dangerous gangster Happy Shannon in the film, which already boasts the likes of Megan Fox, Mickey Rourke and Kelly Lynch.

Fox plays an angel - no, really - who Rourke's down-on-his-luck trumpet player saves from Murray's mobster. And he, in return, finds redemption in her.

The cameras are cranking even now in New Mexico and the movie should arrive later in the year, assuming it nabs a distribution deal over here. But with Rourke, Fox and now Murray in the cast, surely someone will pick it up…

Jenna Fischer Get A "Hall Pass" From Farrelly Brothers

Jenna Fischer Get A "Hall Pass" From Farrelly Brothers
Jenna Fischer is in negotiations to star as Owen Wilson's wife in "Hall Pass," a New Line comedy being directed by the Farrelly brothers.

The story centers on a married couple in which the wife gives her husband a "hall pass," a free ticket to engage in extramarital encounters.

Jason Sudeikis is on board as the guy's best friend, who also gets a free pass from his wife (still to be cast). Things get complicated when the wives also begin exercising their "hall pass" power.

Pete Jones wrote the spec, which was rewritten by Kevin Barnett and Peter and Bobby Farrelly. The Farrellys also are producing with their Conundrum Entertainment partner Bradley Thomas.

The movie begins production Feb. 23 in Atlanta, which will substitute for New England.

Fischer, best known as Pam Beesly on NBC's "The Office," has feature comedies "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story" and "Blades …

Can Mel Gibson Still Carry A Film?

Can Mel Gibson Still Carry A Film?
I sure think so, from what I have seen of the film it looks great.

There was that name -- Mel Gibson -- and then the man himself, grim-set face and trenchcoated torso coming toward you in an advertisement for a major studio release. The pitch and the persona were familiar, but it still felt odd, like a good friend you had a falling-out with awhile back who suddenly reappears on your Facebook wall. How do you respond?

Warner Bros. is betting that audiences will respond with a cheery "Welcome back!" and solid opening-weekend attendance when "Darkness" opens Jan. 29. Gibson is returning to the big screen after a seven-year absence -- a century in movie-star years -- and studio marketing is aimed squarely at his old fan base. In TV and print ads, it's Gibson alone -- purposeful, vengeful, unstoppable -- a good guy who will bloody the guilty with the righteous weapons of justice.

But how likely is renewed success for the embattled act…

Where's Conan The Barbarian Hiding?

Where's Conan The Barbarian Hiding?

Looks like they may have found their guys, well at least narrowing them down.
Dimbort's departure would come as Millennium gets close to a production start on its biggest bet yet. That’s Conan, the rebirth of the Robert E. Howard-created barbarian famously played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Director Marcus Nispel is on track to start production March 15 in Bulgaria — if they can find the right barbarian. Last weekend, it seemed like things came down to two buff finalists: Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen in the Twilight Saga sequels New Moon and Eclipse), and Jason Momoa (Ronon Dex in the TV series Stargate: Atlantis). Suddenly, Millennium and partner Lionsgate decided today to look at another unnamed but better established actor before deciding.



On the executive front, Dimbort would be tough to replace. While Lerner and his shaggy white head of hair is the front man, it's Dimbort’s presale skills that get the films funded. And while the Millennium…

Teddy Pendergrass Dies At Age Of 59

Teddy Pendergrass Dies At Age Of 59

Singer Teddy Pendergrass, the R&B love man whose chart-topping career was slowed but not stopped by a devastating car accident, died Wednesday. He was 59.

His son, Teddy Pendergrass II, said his father died in a hospital in suburban Philadelphia. The singer underwent colon cancer surgery eight months ago
.


Philly native Pendergrass, like many of the great soul singers of his generation, began singing in church. Trained as a drummer, he began supporting vocalist Harold Melvin in 1969. Melvin reconstituted his vocal group the Blue Notes the following year with Pendergrass as lead singer.

In 1971, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes were signed to Philadelphia International, the hometown label run by producers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff and distributed by CBS. The association spawned a run of sleek, opulently orchestrated R&B hits featuring Pendergrass' virile vocals; these included the No. 1 hits "If You Don't Know Me By Now," "…

Four Brothers Movie Sequel Is Planned Titled Five Brothers.

Four Brothers Movie Sequel Is Planned Titled Five Brothers.

You have got to be kidding me right. How creative is Hollywood? The film will be title "Five Brothers".

In the first film one brother died.So where are they going to find more brothers to make it 5?

Are they going to find out they have more brothers in Mexico?

Was not a huge fan of Four Brothers, But do enjoy it when it is on TNT in the middle of the night and I need something to put me to sleep. I think this is just a bad idea.

Paramount is developing a sequel to its 2005 thriller "Four Brothers," bringing back many of the creative team for "Five Brothers."

Mark Wahlberg eyeing a return to star and hatched the sequel idea with original writers David Elliot and Paul Lovett, who are writing "Five." Lorenzo Di Bonaventura is back to produce.

The 2005 movie, directed by John Singleton, revolved around four adopted brothers (Wahlberg, Tyrese Gibson, Andre Benjamin and Garrett Hedlund) who co…

The Crazies New Trailer and Posters

The Crazies New Trailer and Posters

The Crazies is an upcoming 2010 American horror film that is a remake of George A. Romero's 1973 film of the same name.From what I have seen from the trailers this movie looks pretty intense, and the trailer gets right to the point.

Also an added bonus the film stars Timothy Olyphant. I have been a huge fan of his since the first time I saw "Go"


A husband and wife in a small Midwestern town find themselves battling for survival as their friends and family descend into madness in The Crazies. A mysterious toxin in the water supply turns everyone exposed to it into mindless killers and the authorities leave the uninfected to their certain doom in this terrifying reinvention of the George Romero horror classic. Directed by Breck Eisner (Sahara), The Crazies is written by Ray Wright (Pulse, Case 39) and Scott Kosar (The Amityville Horror, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre). The American Dream goes horribly wrong when the residents of this picture-p…

Jurassic Park 4 Joe Johnston Leaks A little Info On The Movie

Director Joe Johnston,Talks about upcoming Jurassic Park 4 Film

"Well, there is going to be a Jurassic Park IV. And it's going to be unlike anything you've seen. It breaks away from the first three—it's essentially the beginning of the second Jurassic Park trilogy. It's going to be done in a completely different way."That's big. So not to lock you in, but there's a possibility there might be a total of six films?"Well, you never know. If they keep working—and if audiences keep going to them—there's no reason why there wouldn't be. We just want to make them justified in their own right. We don't want to make sequel after sequel just because there's a market for it. We want to tell different, interesting stories. You don't want to just sell hamburger."

21 Jump Street Movie Update

21 Jump Street Movie Update

Here is an u;update on the upcoming 21 Jump Street movie. comingsoon got their hand on Jonah Hill and he let them in on a few things.

"We're going to shoot it this year I think." says Hill, "We hired directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller who directed 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs' and are friends of mine. They are incredible. Their take on the movie is incredible... It's about cops who go back to high school. Young rookie cops who go back to high school. I think that's a real interesting idea as opposed to saying, that's not what happened in the show so it can't happen in the movie'.

Working from a script by Michael Bacall and Joe Gazzam with an original idea by Hill (who is also executive producing), the film will keep the same basic premise as the series but will have a tone that Hill believes will surprise fans.

"[Audiences are] not expecting what it's going to be. It's not a parody of the show…

Sinestro To Appear In Green Lantern Film?

Sinestro To Appear In Green Lantern Film?

Everyone's up in arms about "Spider-Man" this week, and I can understand why. It's huge news. But it's certainly not the only superhero film that's gearing up to shoot, and "Green Lantern" is actually closer to a start date, with major casting news breaking in the last week. Obviously, Ryan Reynolds was tapped last year after a very close horse race to play Hal Jordan, whose attempt to help a dying alien at a crash site ends up turning him into an intergalactic superhero.

Then last week, there was an announcement about Blake Lively, who signed on to play Carol Ferris, and then Peter Saarsgard signed on to play Hector Hammond, a dangerous telepath whose contact with an alien force turns him into a major threat against the security of Earth.

I've been making some calls yesterday and today, and what I'm hearing actually confirms some earlier rumors online from October of 2009, when Harry Knowles first r…

The Thing Prequel Character Breakdown

The Thing Prequel Character Breakdown
Director Matthijs Van Heijningen is gearing up for a March shoot of Strike Entertainment and Universal Pictures' The Thing in Toronto, Canada, and Bloody Disgusting has got a small new piece of information for ya. Apparently, the studio is using Eric Heisserer's (A Nightmare on Elm Street) version of the screenplay that begins when an alien spaceship is discovered far beneath the ice near a remote Antarctica outpost. We're told that a group of scientists decide to thaw out a creature from inside that kicks off the mayhem at the camp. It is said to be a prequel, check out our exclusive interview with Heisserer for more info. John Carpenter's 1982 film of the same name was a remake of the 1951 The Thing from Another World.

Marc Webb To Spin A Web On Spider-Man Reboot?

Marc Webb To Spin A Web On Spider-Man Reboot?
Marc Webb, the (500) Days Of Summer director, has climbed to the top of the Sony Pictures' list to rebirth the Spider-Man franchise. While the studio has a wish list of star directors like James Cameron, David Fincher, and Wes Anderson, the emergence of Webb as director comes as a huge surprise. But Mike Fleming's sources tell him Webb met about the Spidey reboot with the pic's producers and executives looking to get the picture into production later this year for a Summer 2012 release. Why will the pic take so long? Because it's likely to be shot in 3-D, and Sony Pictures plans to make an announcement about that "at the appropriate time".

Though he has the perfect name for the job, Webb has no prior superhero experience. (Hey, I saw Darkman and that was more of a science experiment that a superhero.) Then again, neither did Sam Raimi. And Chris Nolan was the director of Memento when he signed on for Batman Begins. …

"Dexter's" Star Diagnosed With Cancer

"Dexter's" Star Diagnosed With Cancer

"Dexter" star Michael C. Hall says he was diagnosed with cancer and is on the road to the successful completion of treatment.

In a statement Wednesday, Hall said he was fortunate to be diagnosed with a "treatable and curable condition," Hodgkin's lymphoma, and thanked his doctors and nurses for their expertise. The name of the Los Angeles area health facility where he has undergone treatment was not released.

Craig Bankey, a spokesman for the actor, said the disease is in complete remission and Hall's treatment will continue as planned.

The 38-year-old Hall plans to attend Sunday's Golden Globe awards with his wife, actress Jennifer Carpenter, and the upcoming Screen Actors Guild ceremony. He's a nominee at both awards shows for his role as a serial killer in Showtime's "Dexter."

Bankey said Hall will return to production on the drama's fifth season later this year.

LionsGate Leads The Bid For The Terminator Franchise

Lionsgate Leads The Bid For The Terminator Franchise

So what's a stalking horse bid? An initial bid on a bankrupt company's assets from an interested buyer chosen by the bankrupt company. This allows the distressed firm to avoid receiving lowball bids on its assets. That said, I hear Lionsgate will be named the stalking horse bidder in the bankruptcy sale of the Terminator franchise. Sources tell me it wasn't a competitive auction. (Sorry, Joss Whedon, your $10,000 offer for the rights didn't cut it.) When last we left the tug of war over the future of The Terminator franchise, Halcyon Holding Group announced it was contemplating a sale of the rights after filing for Chapter 11 protection last August as a result of a dispute with Pacificor, a Santa Barbara-based hedge fund that lent Halcyon the sum to buy the Terminator rights in the first place. All the big studios, with Sony leading the way as well as Summit Entertainment and Media Rights Capital, were interested in b…

Ivan Reitman To Direct Ghostbuster 3

Ivan Reitman To Direct Ghostbuster 3

A few weeks ago, "Ghostbusters" writer and star Harold Ramis revealed that the long-awaited third movie in the series is planned for a 2011 release. This news broke only a short time after "Avatar" star Sigourney Weaver speculated that Bill Murray's character Pete Venkman might appear in the movie as a slimer ghost, and that Oscar, her character's son from the second movie, would be a full-fledged Ghostbuster.

Ivan Reitman, director and producer of the first two movies, stopped to chat,he shied away from addressing Weaver's spoiler-y speculation, but he did have some things to say about the general state of development for "Ghostbusters III."

Ivan Reitman Reitman said:

That the script from "Year One" writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky is in and that a second draft is currently in the works. He also confirmed that he will indeed be returning to direct the coming sequel, as had been previously sp…

FlashForward and V-ABC Not Throwing In The Towel Yet

FlashForward and V-ABC Not Throwing In The Towel Yet
Fans of ABC's sci-fi series FlashForward and V have been concerned both with the network's decision to delay both shows' spring returns until March and with whether the network continues to have confidence in them, but ABC Entertainment Group President Stephen McPherson assured reporters on Tuesday that he has a clear plan for building both shows' audiences, with two different strategies.

In a press conference at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif., McPherson said he decided it was important to air FlashForward with no repeats, following the network's strategy for Lost's later seasons.

For V, he clarified that the plan was always to tell the story in chapters, but that the first chapter got shortened to only four episodes because of production issues.

"The original [1984-'85] V was two minis and then a series," McPherson said in a group interview later. &qu…

Legion Director Plans 2 Sequels

Legion Director Plans 2 Sequels
Scott Stewart, the writer and co-director of Legion, said he has plans for two more films that could be done in very different genres—if the apocalyptic film about a battle among angels does well when it opens on Jan. 22.

Stewart not only directed and co-wrote (with Peter Schink) the movie, but he also co-wrote the four-issue comic book Legion: Prophets with Tom Waltz for IDW Publishing. Characters mentioned or referred to in the movie are fleshed out in the comic book, which came out last November and is considered a prequel to the film.

"I have two other films in mind after Legion," Stewart told SCI FI Wire on Sunday at the Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention. "Yeah, we talked about it, and I have mapped out two other very different kinds of movies." Stewart and cast members screened footage of the film and answered questions at the convention.

Regular readers will know that we loves us some Nathan Fillion. So imagine our squealing, nerdy excitement when we learn that he's teaming up again with Slither creator James Gunn for the director's latest, superhero adventure" Super".

And that's not all. If there's one thing Gunn is good at, it's playing to the crowd, and his latest casting announcement is one heaping load of geek bait after another. Not only is Fillion signing on to play the pop icon who inspires an ordinary bloke (Rainn Wilson) to try his hand at heroism), but the likes of Scooby Doo's Linda Cardellini, Slither's Michael Rooker, and The Wire's Andre Royo have also been aded to the line up.

Jay-Z and Beyonce Top Couple Earners Of 2009

Newlyweds Jay-Z and Beyonce earned $122 million together between June 2008 and June 2009, more than any other couple -- married or unmarried -- in entertainment.

The listmakers at Forbes are at it again, this time determining Hollywood's top-earning couple.

Beyonce and Jay-Z beat out the competition not only by churning out hit songs but also by attaching their names to Budweiser, American Express and a host of other brands. In this relationship, the wife out-earned the husband, $87 million-$35 million.

In a distant second place, with a combined $69 million, was Harrison Ford and girlfriend Calista Flockhart, most of that coming courtesy of Ford's $65 million paycheck for "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."

Partners Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are third with a combined $55 million, thanks to "Wanted," starring Jolie, and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," starring Pitt.

Spider-Man Going To Get A Make Over For Next Film

Spider-Man Going To Get A Make Over

The next Spider-Man film will be a reboot of the franchise, not a continuation of series Sam Raimi created back in 2002 — in a move similar to Batman Begins restarting the Batman franchise seven years after Batman and Robin underwhelmed fans and critics.

This time around, the series will place Peter Parker in a more contemporary setting, as a teenager battling today’s issues. The decision to go with an origin story stemmed from Sony developing two Spidey projects simultaneously. According to studio insiders, Sony was working on both Raimi’s Spider-Man 4 and the new origin story from James Vanderbilt, who wrote Zodiac. The original plan was to keep the Spider-Man gang together for one last film in 2011 before rebooting the series in 2012. When it became clear that Raimi would not be able to make the summer 2011 release date planned for Spider-Man 4, the studio opted to scrap Spider-Man 4 altogether, and focus solely on the series reboot.

Twilight's Breaking DawnTo Begin Filming In 2010

Twilight's Breaking DawnTo Begin Filming In 2010
It's been one of the biggest questions surrounding Summit Entertainment's uber-successful "Twilight" franchise(apart, of course, from whether stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson really are a couple off-screen) -- just how the producers are going to manage to pull off a big-screen adaptation of "Breaking Dawn." The fourth book in Stephenie Meyer's juggernaut of a young adult fiction series about the epic love affair between high school student Bella Swan and her good-guy vampire beau Edward Cullen has plenty of heft, clocking in at upward of 750 pages, but it also has the distinction of being the most controversial entry in the saga.

When it was released in August 2008, fan reaction was intense and divided with some "Twi-hards" expressing confusion and dismay over a plot that involved *SPOILER ALERT* a recently graduated 19-year-old Bella giving birth to a half-human/half-vamp daughter n…
