Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland was always a gamble. Sometimes gambles pay off big, other times they don’t. Now it seems, despite the combination of an Oscar-winning director, a proven box-office star and a high-concept, Disney-approved idea, Tomorrowland will end up losing Disney somewhere around $140 million.

Krusty the Clown’s former assistant Sideshow Bob has long been defined by two things: his crazy red hair and a need to kill Bart Simpson. Basically, Bart foiled one of Sideshow Bob’s early criminal plans and ever since, Bob’s devoted his life to killing Bart. Time and time again he’s concocted nefarious schemes to kill the skateboarding wise ass and every time Bart, usually with the help of his sister, outsmarts the mastermind.
That changes this year. The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean revealed that, in this year’s Treehouse of Horror episode, Sideshow Bob will finally kill Bart Simpson. Read More »
News of a beloved film being remade is rarely good news. The closest you can get, however, is something along the lines of Dwayne Johnson starring in a remake of John Carpenter‘s Big Trouble in Little China. I’m 100% behind the “Why remake a perfect movie?” argument but if it’s going to happen anyway, Johnson as the star is a major plus.
Johnson’s attitude toward the movie is an even bigger plus. In a new interview, the San Andreas star said he hopes they can be respectful to the original and even wants John Carpenter himself to come on board. Read the quotes below. Read More »

Is Uwe Boll a master short film director in disguise? Most film audiences couldn’t name even half of the ten features released since 2010 that bear Boll’s name, but hundreds of thousands have already watched his latest short YouTube video. That’s because the video is one of two in which an angry Boll rants against crowdfunding, Hollywood, and entitled movie stars.
The prod here is a set of failed crowdfunding campaigns for Rampage 3. One campaign failed on IndieGogo, raising just over six thousand dollars out of its goal of one hundred thousand dollars Canadian. The other is far from its goal on Kickstarter, with a few days left to go.
One video ends with Boll identifying with the main character of Rampage, repeating his mantra “kill the rich.” In the other video, he says “I have enough money to play golf for ’til I’m dead,” which counts as “rich” to most everyone else. Mixed messages there, but Boll has certainly ensured that we’re all aware of Rampage 3. Watch both Uwe Boll rant videos below. Read More »
“If you like the Terminator films, you’re going to like this movie.” That’s a director quote from James Cameron, the creator, writer and director of the two universally-praised Terminator films, The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. After Cameron parted ways with the franchise, two terrible sequels were released, ensuring that Cameron’s name was permanently attached to the phrase “good Terminator movie.”
This summer, Hollywood trying again with Terminator Genisys, a film that subverts almost everything you knew about the franchise from Cameron’s films. The creator had very little to do with the film so watching it, he says he’s came at it from a “fanboy” perspective. And with that eye, Cameron says he loved the film. He views it as the third film in the series. Watch the James Cameron Terminator Genisys quotes below. Read More »
With each Mission: Impossible movie, Tom Cruise tries to raise the bar. Whether it’s hanging off one of the tallest buildings in the world or being strapped to the side of an airplane in flight, he knows that seeing an actor doing a stunt raises the stakes in a film. And while that airplane stunt may have seemed to be the main event in this summer’s Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, that may not be the case.
Talking to USA Today, Cruise said he trained to hold his breath upwards of 6 minutes to film an underwater scene that plays a huge role in the latest trailer. Rewatch the scene and read the Tom Cruise underwater quotes below. Read More »
I’m as guilty as the next guy. If I’m at a film festival or an early screening of a film I know people are curious about, I try to get a reaction on Twitter as soon as possible. That’s the whole point of Twitter. It’s the world reacting in real time, and if it’s a big time movie, people who can’t be there are dying to know the thoughts of the people who are.
So is a Twitter reaction film criticism? It’s debatable. Thierry Fremaux, head of the Cannes Film Festival, says it is and that Twitter reactions are ruining film criticism. Read his quotes and some thoughts on Twitter movie reviews below. Read More »
