Official Full-length Trailer & Clip In anticipation of ATO Pictures’ release of CASINO JACK on December 29th, 2010, I’m pleased to share the brand new full-length trailer, along with the first clip from the film. The whip-smart new comedy about a man who resorts to awe–inspiring fraudulent antics stars two–time Academy Award® winner Kevin Spacey and is directed by George Hickenlooper Two-time Academy Award Winner Kevin Spacey gives the performance of a lifetime in CASINO JACK, a riotous new film starring Spacey as a man hell bent on acquiring all that the good life has to offer.

Depp Wants Marshall To Direct "The Thin Man" Remake

Depp Wants Marshall To Direct "The Thin Man" Remake Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp has been aggressively courting his Pirates 4 director Rob Marshall (Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha) to direct him once again in a remake of The Thin Man at Warner Bros. It'd be a fitting follow-up to Depp's turn as the rum-soaked Captain Jack Sparrow: The famous detective novel by Dashiell Hammett centers on Nick Charles who — after marrying wealthy, young socialite Norah — gives up a career as a hard-boiled gumshoe to become a semi-professional alcoholic and full-time trophy husband. The Thin Man certainly wasn't the Philip Marlowe of its day when it was first published in 1934 — Hammett never even wrote a sequel — but it did become a hit six-film franchise at MGM (with William Powell starring as Nick Charles and Myrna Loy playing Nora Charles) and an NBC series that ran from 1957 to 1959. There's no script yet for the remake, but we're told that Depp is e

Sam Raimi To Direct "The Day of the Triffids"

Sam Raimi To Direct "The Day of the Triffids" Mandate Pictures has won the auction for The Day of the Triffids . The film will be produced by Ghost House, the partnership between Mandate, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert. The deal is seven-figures and I've heard it's the most that Mandate has paid for a project package. Raimi wants to direct it; the original was one of his favorite films as a boy. Raimi and Tapert will board the producer roster, joining Michael Preger, Angry Films' Don Murphy and Susan Montford, and Mark Gordon, who previously worked with Raimi on A Simple Plan. The rights package includes the original scifi novel by John Wyndham , which was previously used as the basis for the 1962 film. It's classic paranoid alien invasion stuff: when a shower of meteorites lights up the sky, it creates such a gorgeous sight that most earthlings can't help but look. So 99% of the population goes blind as a result, but it gets worse. The meteorites unleash

Hellraiser Reboot On The Way

Do We Really Need To Reboot Pinhead? NEW DIRECTOR named. News here. We landed some huge news this weekend as we've confirmed that Christian E. Christiansen (say that ten times fast) is circling Dimension Films' big budget Hellraiser remake. But ultimately lost out to the Drive Angry team, as did Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, who brought us the last four Saw films and The Collector .  As it was previously reported, the Victor Garcia low budget sequel, Revelations , was greenlit in order for the Weinstein Company to retain the rights (much like they did in 2005 with both Deader and Hellworld). Based on what I've heard from various people who have pitched their version of Hellraiser, the Weinsteins are looking for someone to make the franchise fitted for "teens" (super, super, super lame), thus making the director of Sony Screen Gems' The Roommate perfect for the gig. This leads beautifully into the news that the company hopes (nothing is signed) to

Sandra Bullock To Reunite With The Proposal Director

Sandra Bullock To Reunite With The Proposal Director Sandra Bullock is reuniting with the director of The Proposal , Anne Fletcher, for an untitled project. Warner Bros. has picked up the pitch, which hails from scribes Pamela Falk and Michael Ellis. Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot of Offspring Entertainment are producing.

Bullock also will executive produce with her Fortis Films partner Maggie Biggar. Offspring's Matt Smith also is executive producing. Sarah Schechter is overseeing for Warners. The acquisition comes as Bullock is in negotiations to star in the studio's outer space survival movie, Gravity , from director Alfonso Cuaron. Gravity is vying with Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close as her next movie. Choreographer-turned-director Fletcher,

Wolverine 2 Hugh Jackman Darren Aronofsky

 Wolverine 2 Will Not Be Your Regular X-Men Film Hugh Jackman spilled the beans on his Wolverine 2 ,which will begin early next year, he explained, and he’s bulking up: “Expect to see four chicken breasts and a whole pile of steamed broccoli on my plate,” he told us. "I'm starting; I’m having my six meals a day." With Darren Aronofsky directing, he says that Wolverine 2 will not be a "usual" X-Men movie: "This is, hopefully for me, going to be out of the box. It’s going to be the best one, I hope," he said, and then paused. "Well, I would say that, but I really do feel that, and I feel this is going to be very different." Also, Jackman doesn’t think that Aronofsky’s penchant for dark drama is at odds with the big-budget action franchise. "This is Wolverine. This is not Popeye. He’s kind of dark," Jackman said. "But, you know, this is a change of pace. Chris McQuarrie, who wrote The Usual Suspects, has written the script,

Mark Zuckerberg Reacts To The Social Network

'The Social Network' Got His Clothing Exactly Right So what does the founder of Facebook think of the film The Social Network . He has been pretty silent about the film and the accuracy of the film.  But he is finally speaking about about the movie. Zuckerberg admitted to an audience at a start-up conference that he did, in fact, check out the David Fincher film.

Green Lantern Coaster On It's Way

Magic Mountain Regains Title Six Flags Magic Mountain will reclaim the Roller Coaster Capital of the World title with the addition of two coasters in spring 2011, including a first-of-its-kind ride in the U.S., amusement park officials said. The Green Lantern will bring Magic Mountain's coaster count to 18, allowing the Valencia amusement park to recapture the coaster crown, taken by Ohio’s Cedar Point in 2008. Magic Mountain snatched the crown from Cedar Point around the turn of the millennium after adding a coaster a year during a building binge that stretched from 1997 to 2003. Cedar Point, with 17 coasters, plans to add a tower swing thrill ride in 2011. Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey will also add a stand-up coaster called Green Lantern in 2011, relocated from a shuttered park in Kentucky. The debut of both themed coasters will coincide with the 2011 release of the "Green Lantern" movie based on the DC Comics superhero with otherworldly powers.

Disney To Distribute Marvel's 'The Avengers,' 'Iron Man 3'

The Mouse Gets His Hands On “The Avengers” & “Iron Man 3” Paramount sources say the studio stands to profit handsomely from its deal to shift marketing and distribution of Marvel’s 2012 tentpole “ The Avengers ” and still-unslotted “ Iron Man 3 ” to Disney , which acquired the comic-book company last year. Paramount will receive distribution fees for both films with a guaranteed minimum of $115 million regardless of how the films perform. Paramount insiders say the studio will receive its usual 8 percent distribution fee for “ The Avengers ” and an increase to 9 percent for the third “Iron Man.” Disney quickly announced a release date of May 3, 2013 for “ Iron Man 3 .” The deal gives Disney -- which has faltered at the box office recently -- a chance to benefit from its acquisition of Marvel. Paramount views the deal as an opportunity “to do no work on ‘Iron Man 3’ and ‘Avengers’ ” and still make more money on the films, according to a source. That source said Paramount

Green Lantern's Power Lantern Revealed

Let's Hope He Has A Charger This ain't your everyday Coleman campsite lantern. It's the space battery that will power Ryan Reynold's in the upcoming Green Lantern film, and it has been unleashed to the world. Here's Alittle History on the Oan power lantern . Oan Energy Conduit: The rings use Oan energy (supplied by a Green Lantern Power Battery .) Power Batteries are constantly charged by the Central Power Battery to manually fuel about 7200 individual Green Lantern Rings. With few exceptions, the Power Ring was limited to a 24-hour charge and needed to be recharged at the Power Battery on a daily basis. However, that limit has been removed, meaning a Lantern is only obligated to recharge their ring when the power levels are depleted or gone. The amount of energy in a ring is measured by the ring, and relayed to the Lantern via a percentage scale of 0% - 100%. When Abin Sur died, his Power Battery and Power Ring were passed onto the Human known as Hal Jor
