micro movie

Michael Crichton‘s best work always tends to read like fleshed-out screenplay. Few “airport novelists” (and I use that term with affection) were so effective at relaying blockbuster-sized action on the page, at vividly depicting what feels like a major Hollywood story in 500 or so breathless pages. It’s no wonder that his work continues to inspire adaptations nearly a decade after his death.

The latest novel to embark on a journey to the big screen is Micro and the project has nabbed a Pirates of the Caribbean director and a producer with his fair share of Crichton experience.

real steel sequel

Real Steel isn’t Shawn Levy‘s most successful film at the box office, but it is easily the most enjoyable film he’s directed. Before the Steven Spielberg-produced movie even opened in theaters, Levy started talking about a sequel, which he, Hugh Jackman, and Evangeline Lilly were expected to return for. The father-son fighting robots story performed well overseas, but it wasn’t a big hit in the States. Five years since the movie hit theaters, Levy is still considering a sequel.

Below, Shawn Levy discusses the Real Steel sequel.

Hook reunion

For children of the 90s, there is a lot of love for Steven Spielberg’s fantasy sequel Hook. The 1990 film was a legacyquel more than 20 years before they became all the rage in Hollywood. As someone who grew up on the movie, I’ll be the first to admit that the film hasn’t aged well, has plenty of flaws, but still holds a special place in my heart. And that sense of nostalgia is even stronger for the kids lucky enough to star alongside Robin Williams in it as The Lost Boys of Neverland.

It’s hard to believe it’s been 25 years since Hook hit the big screen (or at least it will be this December), but in honor of the milestone anniversary, a company called 22 Vision (specializing in celebrating pop culture through viral content) rounded up all of The Lost Boys from Hook for a little reunion photoshoot, and it’s probably one of the coolest things you’ll see today.

Oscar Isaac Steven Spielberg

Even before Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters last December, Oscar Isaac was already a pretty hot commodity. Leading up to his role in the massive sci-fi franchise, he had already made waves with outstanding performances in Ex Machina, A Most Violent Year and Inside Llewyn Davis, quickly turning him into a coveted talent on the big screen. Plus, even though most were not impressed with X-Men: Apocalypse, that had nothing to do with Isaac, and his profile hasn’t been hurt by that stumble at all.

Now Oscar Isaac is preparing to add another notch to his professional acting belt with news that he is taking a role in The Kidnapping of Edgardo Montara, the next film from director Steven Spielberg. Read More »
