Movie Review: The Snowman

Anne Hathaway Gets "The Lifeboat"

Working Title and Focus Features have picked up the rights to Charlotte Rogan's debut historical novel.

Anne Hathaway is attached to star in and produce The Lifeboat, an adaptation of a book by Charlotte Rogan, whose rights have just been jointly acquired by Working Title and Focus Features.

The story centers on Grace Winter, who is standing trial for murder in 1914. The young woman is both a newlywed and a widow, and she recounts how she survived the sinking of the transatlantic ship Empress with the help of her new husband only to end up in a lifeboat. The quandary, however, is that there are too many people in the boat and the survivors soon start talking about getting rid of certain people.

William Broyles Jr., whose credits range from Apollo 13 to Castaway to Flags of Our Fathers, is writing the script.

Hathaway will produce with Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Liza Chasin of Working Title, along with Film 360's Suzan Bymel and Ben Forkner. Broyles will exec produce. Final pr…

Monsters University Review By: AprilSpice. Witty & Funny

Monsters University Review By: AprilSpice
Being a said, "Disney Freak", that 'Monster's Inc.' was one of my favorite movie's from the early 00's, and that I have 3 girls whom the eldest was nicknamed "Boo" as a toddler with her brown pigtails, and big brown eyes, I was pretty excited when I heard there was going to be a 2nd 'Monster's Inc.' movie. The dvd has been bought at least 2 or 3 times in the past 10 years being re watched many times as one of my kid's favorite for at least a month or two.


When I heard that the movie was going to be a prequel I was honestly pretty disappointed. Pixar set it up so well for a sequel with Sully going back to see Boo at the end of the first. Boo was such a beloved character that I thought it was a travesty they wouldn't be bringing her back! I wanted to know what happened to her! I saw the previews for 'Monster's University' and sure they were cute but I thought to myself that …

Monsters University Review. Is Enjoyable But Utterly Forgettable Fare

Monsters University Review By: MattInRC
The prequel comedy Monsters University is funny, digestible, and ultimately forgettable.


How is it that a comedy which first arrived in 2001 took 12 more years to make a prequel-followup? It's not uncommon, but such time distance usually wrecks havoc on audiences' memories and appreciation of the current material. In other words, absence makes the heart forget. In almost an after-thought, Monsters University arrives ready to establish a franchise that should have started years ago. The result is an enjoyable but unremarkable film that takes too long to remind us why we liked Monsters Inc in the first place.


Set up as an origin story, our tale follows the rise of the one-eyed monster Mike (Billy Crystal, When Harry Met Sally) and the furry Sully (John Goodman, Flight) as they attend Monsters University, hoping to embark upon a professional career of scaring young sleepers. Mike is the bookworm and not a good test taker, while Sully is…

WORLD WAR Z Review. Is Entertaining But Completely Ignores It's Heritage

WORLD WAR Z Review By: MattInRC
Does the long-delayed World War Z prove its meddle, or does it get eaten up by flesh-eating zombies?


If you've been following the production nightmare behind World War Z, you have to wonder how it ever made it out to theaters: a long-delayed path to securing the funding to shoot, plus a massive re-write of the script, resulting in a six-week re-shoot of Act 3 costing more than $70 million, and finally director and star not getting along. Such issues would have killed most projects, but this is Brad Pitt after all, and he's demonstrated many times his tenacity in seeing a project through. And while somewhat enjoyable, the film resembles the original book in name only, dumping many characters alongside the road like an unwanted bag of trash.


As the zombie apocalypse descends on the world, former UN operative Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt, Mr. and Mrs. Smith) and his family are caught without means of escape. But when help arrives in the form of Gerry…
