With Spider-Man stuck in a bit of a void, Andrew Garfield is filling his time wisely. He’ll soon shoot Silence with Martin Scorsese, and now he might team up with another Oscar-winning director: Mel Gibson. Both Gibson and Garfield are circling a World War II project called Hacksaw Ridge. It’s the true story of Desmond T Doss, a U.S. military doctor (played by Garfield, if it all works out) who refuses to kill patients badly injured in battle. As a result, Doss was the first “Conscientious Objector” to win the Congressional Medal of Honor. Gibson would direct the film. Read more about the potential Andrew Garfield Mel Gibson team up below.

As it stands, Jason Reitman‘s career can be divided into two phases: Fox Searchlight and Paramount. His first two movies, Thank You For Smoking and Juno, were released by Fox Searchlight and the four since have all been at Paramount. For an upcoming project, the director of Up in the Air will transition back to the studio were it all started.
Reitman is now attached to a film called I Would Only Rob Banks for My Family, based on a magazine article about a seemingly normal Texas family who robs banks together. It’ll be adapted by High Fidelity author Nick Hornby and produced by Jason Reitman’s father, Ivan Reitman. Read more about the new Jason Reitman movie below. Read More »
The tagline for Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar is “Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.” In all the discussions about the film post release, that idea has kind of been left in the dust (pun intended). The environmental issues in the film have been overshadowed by the science of the space sequences, and the sound in the theater. Hoping to focus attention back on that aspect of the film, Nolan and his team are doing a project to celebrate the planet we live on.
Nolan and his actors are asking fans, filmmakers and everyone in between to participate in a time capsule project. An Interstellar documentary, if you will, that will result in a film that showcases “memorable and inspiring moments of today to give future generations a way to remember where they came from.” David Brodie and Angus Wall are producing the film with Nolan curating the entries.
Below, watch a video pitch from the cast of Interstellar and read more information about the project. Read More »
Wednesday, a very credible sounding rumor began to circulate that the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens would be attached to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Well, we’ve heard from a very credible source that, with 100% certainty, the Star Wars 7 trailer won’t debut with Peter Jackson’s latest The Hobbit film. There’s a very strong likelihood it will play with that film but according to the source, Disney has “bigger plans” for the trailer debut than a simple attachment. What does that mean? When will it happen? We honestly don’t know. But we’ll offer up a few suggestions about the Star Wars 7 trailer release below. Read More »
The Barden Bellas have already conquered the United States. In Pitch Perfect 2, they take on the world. Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson lead the cast of the a capella sequel, which hits theaters May 15. This time, the Bellas will attempt to win the world a capella championships, something no U.S. team has ever done. Along they way they’ll bond, go camping, haze new recruits and explore what looks like an underground world of a capella that includes David Cross, NFL star Clay Matthews and more.
But Pitch Perfect 2 isn’t all fun and games, as you’ll see right at the beginning of this trailer. It looks like there’s gonna be some emotion along side the jokes, part of the formula that made the 2012 original such a big cult hit. Below, watch the first Pitch Perfect 2 trailer.
UPDATE: We’ve added a bunch of photos from the set of the film. Check them out below. Read More »
Cutting movies in half is very hip these days. Twilight, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and now…John Woo? Yes, the director of Hard Boiled, The Killer and Face/Off made a two-parter in 2008 with Red Cliff, and he’s doing it again this year with The Crossing. An epic romance set against the tragedy of a capsized ferry in 1949, it stars Zhang Ziyi and was written by Melody Wang, who wrote Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
Now, that might sound like it’s John Woo’s Titanic, but it’s much bigger than that. The Crossing is a romance, a disaster film, a war film and more all rolled into one. It truly looks epic.
In China, The Crossing Part 1 opens in December and The Crossing Part 2 opens May 2015. There’s no U.S. release date yet. But, based on this trailer, I hope it gets one soon. Read More »

Complete with the James Gunn seal of approval, the How It Should Have Ended crew has taken on Guardians of the Galaxy.
It’s a good thing Gunn liked it, too, because the video points out several instances in the film where things could have logically gone a very different way. The result is one of the longest How It Should Have Ended videos yet, but one with tons of jokes and references. Those are aimed not only at the film, but at the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe and other comic book series. There are even some cameos from characters from Star Wars, Harry Potter and more.
It’s a hilarious, clever, and well made video that’s worth checking out. Below, watch how Guardians of the Galaxy should have ended. Read More »
