Ren MacCormack (played by newcomer Kenny Wormald) is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out and Bomont’s local councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister’s troubl…

Doug Liman To Climb " Everest"

Doug Liman has climbed aboard Everest, a Sony Pictures drama about George Mallory and his three attempts in the early 1920s to become the first man to climb the world’s highest mountain. The film, an adaptation of Jeffrey Archer’s book Paths Of Glory, has a script by Sheldon Turner. Jennifer Klein is producing. Liman has several projects percolating, including Luna, a moon mission film that Paramount Pictures and New Regency are trying to make work, as well as Warner Bros’ Dante Harper-scripted drama All You Need Is Kill. Liman, who directed the action hits The Bourne Identity and Mr. and Mrs. Smith, is himself an avid climber and a fan of the Mallory story. He is in the midst of a deal to supervise the next draft by Turner with the intention to direct a film that is a priority at Sony Pictures.

The film is about Mallory’s burning obsession to climb to the top of Mount Everest, and a rivalry with another great climber, Australian George Finch (the grandfather of actor Peter Finch), to…

50/50 Movie Review By:Rama

50/50 Movie Review By:Rama So let's all see what Rama thought of the movie 50/50. Enjoy his review and make sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.


I had my worries at first thinkin’ ‘how are they going to approach this subject matter through comedy?!’ especially with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s famous R-rated brand of humor. But their friend Will Reiser (this film is based on his experiences) who wrote the script is very respectful and sensitive to the effects that cancer could have on its victims both physically and emotionally because he himself has gone through the same hell.
There is only a few movies this year that give out a certain special kind of magic and 50/50 is one of them. I genuinely love this film. It’s one of the best, most heartfelt buddy comedies I’ve ever seen..


Inspired by personal experiences, 50/50 is an original story about friendship, love, survival and finding humor in unlikely places. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen star as best friends whose liv…

REAL STEEL Movie Review By: Rama

REAL STEEL Movie Review By: Rama
Do you wanna know what Rama thought of Real Steel?  Did he think the robots knocked it out of the ring or not? Enjoy his review and make sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.



REAL STEEL is rock ‘em sock ‘em awesome! It empowers, entertains, and excites you. One of the best crowd-pleasing, feel-good movies of the year. Watch out for Dakota Goyo, this kid is goin’ places! What a bag of talents for such a young age. Hugh Jackman delivers his most powerful performance yet. Director Shawn Levy got himself a winner in REAL STEEL because this movie’s got energy to spare for the next century with its relatable underdog story complimented with father-son relationship that goes straight for the heart.
Not to mention the robots look absolutely fascinating, the fight sequences are pulse pounding and incredible.
If you ever wondered what the classy movie Rocky would be like if it were about a bunch of boxing robots, I highly recommend watching REAL STEEL..

New The Avengers Set Photos From Entertainment Weekly

On the heels of its overly massaged cover image, Entertainment Weekly has released a few more shots from The Avengers. And these show promise.

See rest of the pictures after the Jump...





I've gotta say: Looking at these behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Joss Whedon's Avengers, I feel a whole heck of a lot better about it than after looking at that cover. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans look like they're having a good time ... hopefully that'll translate into a good movie.

"X-Files" Chris Carter Bringing "Unique" To The Small Screen

X-Files creator Chris Carter is heading back to the small screen.

After several years away from Hollywood despite heavy demand, Carter has reemerged with a female-lead mystery police thriller titled Unique. The project, which is set up at Media Rights Capital, has a supernatural element to it. He is set to write and executive produce.

Carter spent nearly a decade at the helm of the David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson vehicle, which ran from 1993 to 2002. The series not only helped put host network Fox on the map but also define it as a destination for edgy, quality fare.

In addition to a rich ancillary revenue that came from DVD and merchandise, the franchise spawned two feature films, 1998's The X Files and 2008' The X Files: I Want to Believe. Last month, Anderson told an Australian morning show that there's talk of a third X-Files feature. "I hope it happens," she said. "There's talk of it."

Mortal Kombat Returning To The Big Screen Thanks To Tancharoen

Mortal Kombat is heading back to the big-screen.

New Line is hiring the filmmakers of the popular Mortal Kombat digital series, made earlier this year by corporate sibling Warner Bros. Digital Distribution, to take on a new adaptation of the classic 1990s fighting game.

The movie deal marks the end of a journey for Kevin Tancharoen, who will direct the new film. Tancharoen, a choreographer for Madonna and Britney Spears who directed the 2009 remake of Fame and more recently the Glee concert movie, directed a short film Mortal Kombat: Rebirth as a proof of concept for a Kombat movie he tried to pitch. A huge fan of the video game (and knowing Hollywood wouldn’t give him a shot at the title), he enlisted Oren Uziel to write the short and hired actors such as Michael Jai White and Jeri Ryan.

The short was viewed more than 10 million times on YouTube, and although no movie deal materialized, he was asked to direct the 10-episode web series, which debuted in April, attracting more than 50 …

Dark Horse New York Comic-Con Exclusive Spider-Man

As part of the Marvel Syrocos program that debuted at San Diego Comic-Con International in July, it is announced today that Dark Horse will be releasing another exclusive Spider-Man statue for New York Comic Con!

New York Comic Con attendees will have a very significant opportunity to acquire a special statue released just for the show.

It will be sold at the normal retail price of $49.99, with a limit of four per customer.

“We wanted to evoke New York with our very special exclusive Spider-Man,” said Dark Horse’s VP of Product Development, David Scroggy. “Unfortunately, space constraints made a rooftop water tower or fire escape impossible, but we still hope fans can sense…

Red-Band Trailer For I MELT WITH YOU

Today Magnolia Pictures has delivered the Red-Band trailer for their upcoming film I MELT WITH YOU. The film will be available on Magnolia On-Demand November 4 followed by its theatrical release on December 9th

Richard (Thomas Jane), Ron (Jeremy Piven), Jonathan (Rob Lowe) and Tim (Christian McKay) are old college friends that gather annually for a week in Big Sur to celebrate their friendship and catch-up on each other’s lives. They seem like typical men in their forties – all with careers, families, and enormous responsibilities – but like most people there is a lot more beneath the surface.



As the week progresses, they go down the rabbit hole of excess as mountains of drugs are consumed to a blaring rock 'n' roll soundtrack. Parties with much younger women spin out of control. Exhausted and run ragged, they bare their souls to one another revealing the disillusionment with their lives. As the truth emerges, the reunion takes a much darker turn when a promise from their …

Meet Supermans Mommy. Ayelet Zurer Set To Play Lara Lor-Van

Superman is getting a new mom. Ayelet Zurer, the Israeli actress who starred in Angels & Demons and who played the wife of Avner (Eric Bana) in Munich, has been set to play the role of Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s Kryptonian mother, in Man of Steel.

Production is underway on the Warner Bros/Legendary film. That role was originally going to be played by Julia Ormond. I was unable to find out why director Zack Snyder made the last-minute change, but I’ve confirmed that Zurer will start filming this week. Henry Cavill plays Superman, Russell Crowe plays Superman’s Kryptonian father, Jor-El, and Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane and Michael Shannon also star.

Zurer will next be seen starring in the Lawrence Kasdan-directed Darling Companion opposite Diane Keaton, Kevin Kline and Dianne Wiest for Sony Pictures Classics. She’s repped by IFA Talent Agency. Man of Steel is produced by Chris Nolan, Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder and Emma Thomas.

Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol Opens Early In Imax

Paramount is taking the unusual step of opening Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol first in Imax and other select theaters five days before it opens everywhere Dec. 21.

In another key change to its 2011 holiday calendar, Paramount said it is moving up the release of Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin by two days to Dec. 21 (including Imax theaters). That quickly promoted Disney to announce it will now open Spielberg's second Christmas film War Horse on Christmas Day, instead of Dec. 28.

The moves reflect an aggressive effort to capitalize on the lucatrive--and crowded--Christmas frame.
Ghost Protocol, returning Tom Cruise in the marquee role of Ethan Hunt and introducing Jeremy Renner to the franchise, now launches Dec. 16 in north of 250 theaters in what Paramount are calling preview runs.
From the beginning, Bird wanted Ghost Protocol to open first in Imax theaters, since parts of the pic were shot with Imax cameras.

And from Paramount's perspective,…

Showtime & Antoine Fuqua To Deliver Suge Knight Film

Just weeks after Showtime bowed its Paul McCartney documentary, the premium cable network is delving into another music-themed effort with Suge Knight.

Training Day’sAntoine Fuqua will direct and produce the tentatively titled project based on the life and exploits of the Death Row Records co-founder. Black Swan’s Bradley J. Fischer will produce alongside Fuqua. The Knight doc is the first in a series of new documentaries produced by Showtime that will spotlight iconic and controversial figures to be overseen by filmmakers.

“Suge Knight’s reputation and rise to power in the music business has become the stuff of legend, and he remains one of the entertainment industry’s most provocative and enduring myths,” Fischer said in a statement announcing the news Tuesday. “But while his name elicits an immediate and powerful reaction from people around the world, very few can legitimately claim to know the man. Antoine Fuqua and I are thrilled to be partnering with Showtime to tell this remarkab…

Wanted Sequel In The Works

Derek Haas and Michael Brandt are feeling Wanted all over again.

The screenwriting duo have been tapped to work on Wanted 2 for Universal, which is developing the sequel to the hit action movie starring Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy.

The 2008 movie, directed by Timur Bekmambetov, was based on a comic mini-series by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones and centered on a disillusioned office worker who discovers his father was part of a secret society of super-human assassins. Brandt and Hass wrote the screen story and shared screenwriting credits with Chris Morgan.

The movie grossed $341 worldwide, so it wasn’t long before Universal put a sequel into development. But finding a story proved harder to crack. Morgan was commissioned to work on the project back in the fall of 2008. In 2009, Evan Spiliotopoulos was brought on board before the project quietly faded away.

Now Haas and Brandt will move the Wanted 2 needle forward, based on Spiliotopoulos’ work.

Marc Platt is producing alongside Bekmam…
