The film also stars Leonardo DiCaprio as the ruthless Calvin Candie, who has Broomhilda in his clutches, as well as Walton Goggins, Samuel L. Jackson, Don Johnson, Bruce Dern, Anthony LaPaglia, RZA and Franco Nero.

And So It Goes For Michael Douglas

Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton are attached to star in And So It Goes…, a comedy scripted by As Good As It Gets writer Mark Andrus and directed by PJ Hogan. Production is slated for spring, and Foresight Unlimited is financing and producing.  Alan Greisman, Rob Reiner, and Mark Damon are the producers.

Douglas plays a self-absorbed and eccentric realtor whose life is turned upside down when his estranged son abruptly drops off a granddaughter the realtor never knew. With the help of his determined and loveable neighbor (Keaton), the realtor is pulled out of his selfish life and into a new one.

“There’s a large demographic and need for these kind of films as evidenced by box office successes such as The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, It’s Complicated and Bucket List,” Greisman said.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Blu-Ray Review

E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial  Blu-Ray Review By: MattInRC
Make sure to follow MattInRC on Twitter for all his updates and reviews.

The instant classic E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial arrives in a stunning Blu-ray release that's a must-have catalog release. There are few films in the pantheon of great ones that supplant E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.  Growing up when the film was released in 1982, I honestly ignored it as I took to the theaters to watch Blade Runner, the re-run of Empire Strikes Back, and played with my Star Wars figures.  To me, E.T. seemed neither deep enough nor dark enough for my tastes.  It wasn't until its recent release onto Blu-ray that I learned what all the fuss was about; and while I take nothing away from Blade Runner and its remarkable achievements, I can see why so many people revere E.T.  The reasons are hard to pin down, but I think it offers that special blend of nostalgia from those who grew up in the 80's and 90's, mixed with the perfect amou…

Justice League Vs The Avengers Coming In 2015

While the success of The Avengers was certainly a firework under the rear ends of Warner Bros. and their plans to bring their DC Comics characters to the cinema, it hasn't been the smoothest process getting Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest teamed up for a Justice League film. But now, thanks to a legal victory over Krypton’s favourite son and some much-needed momentum, it appears Warners is ready to go head-to-head with Marvel, looking to get the League onto screens in 2015, the same year as The Avengers 2.

Gangster Squad scriptwriter Will Beall has been plugging away since at least June and several possible directors, including Ben Affleck and the Wachowskis, have been thrown up in rumor stories.

As regards the legal aspect, Warners scored a victory over the heirs of Superman's co-creator Joe Schuster yesterday, without which the studio would not have been able to make films, TV shows or comics featuring key elements of the characters mythos beyond next year witho…

New Clip From Silent Hill 3D

Christophe Gans' 2006 adaptation of game studio Konami's Silent Hill was a rare thing: a video-game-to-feature-film crossover that actually worked. Naturally, hopes for its sequel, Silent Hill: Revelations 3D, centre around it pulling off the same trick.

Make sure to check back next week on the site. We have a HUGE giveaway from the film coming up.

Directed by Michael J. Bassett (Solomon Kane, Deathwatch), it brings back old hands from the first film (Deborah Kara Unger, Sean Bean) as well as introducing newcomers such as the lead, Adelaide Clemens, who plays Heather Mason, the protagonist from Silent Hill 3 who is used by the baddie of the piece, Claudia Wolf (Carrie-Anne Moss), in an attempt to bring about the rebirth of "God".

Shailene Woodley Snags Mary Jane Role In Spider-Man Sequel

Shailene Woodley, who just booked the coveted role of Mary Jane in the Spider-Man sequel, is closing in on a deal to star in Divergent, Summit/Lionsgate’s adaptation of Veronica Roth’s YA novel.

But the Mary Jane role is proving to be only a very small part in Amazing Spider-Man 2 but blossoms into an integral lead for the planned third movie as the studio seeks to build to the classic "Death of Gwen Stacy" story.

Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher are producing, as is Pouya Shahbazian. Neil Burger is directing.

The Divergent novel, published in May 2011 by Katherine Tegen Books, is set in a future society that is divided into factions based on human traits.

Woodley will star as a 16-year old who leaves her group to join a rival faction and falls in love with a young man.

Although she had been acting for years, Woodley caught the attention of most in Hollywood when she co-starred opposite George Clooney in Alexander Payne’s awards darling The Descendants. The role garnered her much…

The whole world's gone LEGO-looney, and proof positive is the awesome appeal for all things made of Danish plastic bricks, specifically in the form of LEGO-based videogame adaptations.

The CW's Arrow To Have Justice League Cameos?

The creators of The CW's Arrow have said time and time again that their number-one focus is to tell the story of Oliver Queen—but that doesn't mean they can't tell it with a big pile of DC cameos along the way. With the show a ratings hit, the producers seem to have loosened up about potentially seeing some Justice League members down the line.

But how would Batman and Superman work in the world of Arrow?

Basically, they wouldn't be as "fantastical" as they've been portrayed in comics, cartoons and The CW's recent Smallville. Instead, producer Marc Guggenheim says they'd find a way to reimagine those characters and themes in this parallel universe:

"You'll still hear about characters from those worlds and from those cities. We're imagining a DC universe without super-powered characters but that doesn't mean that in our parallel universe that there isn't a Metropolis or a Gotham City. There are references to places like Corto …

HEATHCLIFF Coming To The Big Screen

WATERMAN ENTERTAINMENT CONTINUES TO BUILD STRONG LIBRARY WITH ‘HEATHCLIFF

Mischievous Cat Latest to Join Family Friendly Slate Including “Mr. Ed” and “ The Brave Little Toaster”11

Family-based production outfit Waterman Entertainment has secured the feature rights to the iconic comic strip character HEATHCLIFF, it was announced today by the company’s Head of Development, Cooper Waterman. Waterman made the deal directly with rights holder, Peter Gallagher. “Their track record is impeccable. Casper, Stuart Little and Alvin are examples of incorporating elements that past audiences loved and adding a contemporary flair that makes these properties endure with a whole new generation. That is exactly what I was looking to achieve with Heathcliff. We want our existing fans to identify with the characters they know while introducing him to an entirely new audience. As a creator I know that they will be attentive to our lasting vision for the brand and welcome our input, which is very impo…

Alex Cross Sequel Already In The Works

The first film doesn't open til this Friday and they are already talking about developing a sequel to the film.  A deal is coming together will turn bestselling author James Patterson’s crime novel Double Cross into a 2nd movie starring Tyler Perry as the famous Washington DC crimefighter/psychologist. Perry’s first turn as Alex Cross opens this Friday from QED.

Summit Entertainment is distributing in the U.S. It’s Perry’s first lead role that he didn’t produce or direct or write – and his reviews so far have been rather good. Certainly a lot better than I expected from the star of the crossdressing Madea movies.

Although the critics have been harsh on helmer Rob Cohen and the film as a whole. QED International’s Bill Block put together Alex Cross at a cost of only $25M (lowered to $23M with Louisiana tax subsidies). He chased down the book rights from Patterson for under $1 million, then hired Marc Moss and Kerry Williamson to pen the screenplay with Patterson.

Twilight To Continue On With Wolf Pack Theme?

Moviehole is reporting that Twilight may continue after Breaking Dawn.

Chortle they did when Bloody Disgusting reported a few months back that Lionsgate/Summit would be rebooting the still-fresh “Twilight” saga, and making it happen as soon as this latest and last installment (“The Twilight Saga : Breaking Dawn Part 2″) had been shipped to theaters.

Silly, in fact, that they did laugh. But no doubt the cheeky coughs came from those who aren’t aware how Hollywood works these days – when it’s all about the brand, or in this case a cash-cow franchise, one doesn’t do like Sly Stallone at the start of “Cliffhanger” and let go, nope, they hang onto it with dear life.

Why put down a perfectly good stable star horse when it’s still winning all the races for you?

When I was informed an hour or so back that “They’re already onto the [Breaking Dawn] follow-up”, I wasn’t surprised, but naturally intrigued. Details are skim but apparently Bloody Disgusting’s earlier sources that some sort of ‘rebo…

Moonrise Kingdom Blu-Ray Review. One Of The Best Films Of The Year

Moonrise Kingdom Blu-Ray Review By: MattInRC
Make sure to follow MattInRC on twitter for all his reviews.

Moonrise Kingdom is uniquely quirky, impressively captivating, and one of best the films of the year as it arrives for its Blu-ray release.


To those outside of the indie movie clique, it might look as though the work of Wes Anderson represents no more than series of boring conversations about...well...nothing at all. Locked in a perpetual episode of Seinfeld, in which his characters essentially do nothing, Anderson's work is quintessential eye candy: extreme closeups and other unique camera angles mix with inventive storytelling that's deeply-layered and sometimes even bordering on self-parody. But it's his commitment to those quirky characters that also rules the days. His newest work, Moonrise Kingdom, is Anderson at his best, wrapping an intelligent script around a rich visual experience that plays very well on Blu-ray.


The Movie - 5/5

Tom Hardy Is Heading To The Bush

Warner Bros is working on not one but two high-profile films about the illegal poaching and trafficking in endangered animals around the world. Both projects are being produced by Tobey Maguire‘s Material Pictures, Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Appian Way and Tom Hardy‘s Executive Options. I don’t know if both of these projects get made, but at a time when Hollywood studios are preoccupied with pretend crises like zombies and vampires, bravo for a major to step up and try to weave in a global problem like ivory trafficking into a drama.

The first project is being written by Up In The Air co-writer Sheldon Turner as a star vehicle for Hardy, based on an idea by the Dark Knight Rises and Warrior star. The untitled film is set in Africa and the aim is for Hardy to play a former Special Forces soldier who signs on with a friend to work in the bush, training rangers to fight off the poachers decimating the rhino and elephant populations in Zimbabwe. The soldier falls in love with the land, and the a…

Black Dynamite 2 Heads To The Wild West

Michael Jai White has joked in the past that the sequel to Black Dynamite will be "blacker and dynamitier." But we shouldn't take that to mean it'll necessarily chronicle the further adventures of the titular CIA 'Nam vet however. According to White, it's likely that the next film will be a Western.

Black Dynamite, if you're unlucky enough not to have caught it so far, is a blaxploitation spoof in which BD, on the trail of his brother's killer, foils a dastardly plot involving Anaconda malt liquor, the kung-fu island of Fiendish Dr Wu, and Nixon's White House. Arsenio Hall co-starred as Tasty Freeze, with Bokeem Woodbine as Black Hand Jack and Tommy Davidson as Cream Corn. If you want further adventures from those characters, there's an animated spin-off, but next?

"In the inception of Black Dynamite, there were a few types of ideas we were going to do," White tells CraveOnline. "Kind of like Monty Python, [we thought we might] u…

Robert Pattinson To Hold Onto Carey Mulligan

As packages firm up for AFM, here’s one that will surely reverberate in Santa Monica. Robert Pattinson is signing on to star with Carey Mulligan in Hold On To Me. The film will be directed by James Marsh, who won an Oscar for the docu Man On Wire and followed with Project Nim. Pic is based on a true story about a femme fatale who with her boyfriend kidnaps and ransoms the town’s richest man. They bury him in a box and things go horribly awry. Pattinson plays the flashy supporting role of the woman’s life love, Jimmy, who isn’t involved in the crime. The project was scripted by Brad Ingelsby.

Alexandra Milchan is producing with Indian Paintbrush‘s Steven Rales, Mark Roybal and Michael Pruss. Also producing is Todd Field, who originally developed the film to direct but stepped off to helm Creed Of Violence for Cross Creek.

Pattinson adds this to an early 2013 schedule that will have him starring opposite Guy Pearce in the David Michod-directed The Rover, and he is also starring in Miss…

Amy Adams To Play Janis Joplin In Upcoming Film

Lee Daniels is in talks to direct Get It While You Can, a Janis Joplin biopic that has Amy Adams attached to star as the queen of rock 'n' roll.

Robert Katz and Andrew Sugerman are producing along with Ron Terry, who wrote the screenplay with his wife, Theresa Kounin-Terry. Jay Tobin is exec producing.

Joplin was the hard-living singer behind such rock classics as "Piece of My Heart" and "Me and Bobby McGee." She crested on the wave of the 1960s counterculture as one of the faces of hippiedom, and she performed at Woodstock.

Joplin, who has influenced artists ranging from Stevie Nicks to Florence Welch (of Florence + the Machine), died of a heroin overdose in 1970, just weeks after Jimi Hendrix succumbed to his drug demons, giving a one-two punch to the face of the Age of Aquarius.

Daniels' involvement is the latest development for the project, which over the years has had Fernando Meirelles and Catherine Hardwicke attached as directors, Renee Zellwege…
