The first trailer for Akiva Goldsman's directorial debut 'Winter's Tale' will probably make the most sense to those who've read the Mark Helprin book. We're a little unsure of what to make of it, though it stars Colin Farrell as a charming thief and Russell Crowe as a bad guy (and possible sorcerer), so it could be worth watching.
It seems like 'Iron Man' director Jon Favreau needed to lick his wounds after the fiasco that was 'Cowboys and Aliens,' as that film's failure may have led to a number of his follow-ups falling apart (he was once set to direct both 'Magic Kingdom' and 'Jersey Boys'). But after directing the lower budget 'Chef' it looks like he'll be helming a new franchise as he's up for the new adaptation of 'The Jungle Book.'
So much of what's happening with 'Star Wars: Episode 7' should be taken with a grain of salt, but early word was that the film would focus on the children of Luke Skywalker and/or Han Solo and Leia (though expanded universe fiction suggests otherwise, it is unknown if she took his last name, or even if they got married). But the latest casting call suggests that J.J. Abrams and company may be going in a new direction.
The tie-in promotional hit single hasn't been as popular/successful as it once was outside of the Bond movies (anyone remember the Soundgarden song in 'The Avengers'?), but that's not stopping 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' from featuring the new single from Christian Aguilera. To help sell the movie (and the song "We Remain") there's a brand new TV spot.
Though the boom years of Hollywood remaking horror classics from the seventies and eighties seems to have come and gone, there are still some stragglers -- like the recent version of 'Carrie' -- that have yet to be redone. Today there was word of a new 'Pet Sematary,' and -- to keep in the Halloween spirit -- 'Sleepaway Camp' is now up for remaking.
Wow, the latest season of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' has just flown by as we're already at the penultimate episode of this year. And it's been a strong season, one of their best ever, which leads to high hopes for "The Gang Makes Lethal Weapon 6," which sounds amazing from the outset. Alas.
It's official: Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street' will be hitting theaters for Christmas, and a new trailer has been readied to get us hyped for one of our most anticipated films of the season. Though it doesn't feature Leonardo DiCaprio dancing (like the last one), it's still pretty sweet.
