Jamie Foxx has been preparing to play boxing legend Mike Tyson for sometime. We heard Terence Winter, writer of Boardwalk Empire and The Wolf of Wall Street, was scripting and Tyson himself had given his blessing. Well now, in a new interview, Foxx dropped a both surprising, and not-so-surprising, piece of news. He said he expects Martin Scorsese to direct the film.

In a way, The Ring was its own prequel — much of the plot was devoted to figuring out the origins of the killer tape, and uncovering Samara’s tragic childhood in the process. Then the 2005 sequel revealed still more of Samara’s backstory. But apparently there’s still more to her tale that needs to be told.
A new report indicates the upcoming Rings will be a prequel. F. Javier Gutiérrez is directing the new film with Matilda Lutz starring. Learn more about The Ring prequel after the jump. Read More »
Today at Valentino’s show in Paris for Paris Fashion Week, a Zoolander reunion took place when Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson walked the runway in character as their Zoolander alter-egos Derek Zoolander and Hansel. That instantly led to questions about whether or not this was the first part of an official Zoolander 2 announcement, and in fact it was. Paramount has announced the movie for a 2016 release; you can get that date and see some Instagram evidence of the runway presence below.
Update: Watch the full runway appearance below. Read More »
Paramount pulled the release of Mission: Impossible 5 up from Christmas of this year to July, and the studio has done such a good job keeping a lid on the film that we don’t don’t really know anything about it. Tom Cruise returns to the lead role of Impossible Mission Force agent Ethan Hunt, and Cruise’s Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie is in the director’s chair here, too. We know there’s a big airplane stunt in the movie, and beyond that? Not much. McQuarrie took to Twitter over the weekend to answer a few questions about the movie, however, and his brief Mission: Impossible 5 update is below. Read More »
As a film fan, one of the eternal debates is The Godfather vs. The Godfather Part II. Both films won Best Picture and both films are all time classics. No one is disputing that. But forced to choose one, do you choose the rise of Michael Corleone as his father, Don Vito Corleone, passes on? Or do you choose the epic dual story of the Corleone family’s beginning, with Vito’s rise to power, alongside its expansion, as Michael broadens and splits the family? It’s a Catch 22, Sophie’s Choice if ever there was one and a debate that’s sure to go on forever.
On the poster side, though, this debate has been closed.
Last year, Odd City Entertainment debuted their official Godfather license with a beautiful piece by Laurent Durieux. Today, they’ve revealed part two of the poster trilogy, also by Durieux. And no knock on the artist himself, but his version of The Godfather Part II blows the original away. See the full Laurent Durieux Godfather Part II poster, and get all the details, below.

It’s good to be Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. The screenwriters behind 500 Days of Summer and The Spectacular Now had their biggest hit yet in 2014 by adapting John Green‘s hit novel, The Fault In Our Stars. They followed that up with another of Green’s books, Paper Towns, which hits theaters this summer. Now the band is getting back together one more time. Neustadter and Weber have signed to adapt Looking for Alaska, Green’s debut novel, the rights to which Paramount has owned since 2005.
Sarah Polley was once attached to direct, but that no longer seems to be the case. Read more about the Looking for Alaska movie below. Read More »
We’ve long heard that Terminator: Genisys is the first part in a proposed new trilogy of Terminator movies. Since the release of the first trailer, that fact has taken a back seat as fans and skeptics alike are focusing on the film at hand. However, for one particular star of the film, eyes are already turning to the sequel.
On a recent trip abroad, Arnold Schwarzenegger himself reportedly said he expects to return for a sequel to Terminator Genisys in 2016. Read the Terminator 6 update below. Read More »
We’re getting mixed messages from Mission: Impossible 5. On one hand, Paramount moved the Tom Cruise film up from a Christmas 2016 release to a July 31 date. (No doubt partially inspired by fear of Star Wars.) But that doesn’t mean that everything is going perfectly well with the film, and reports now say the Mission Impossible 5 ending needs some work, and so the movie has taken a break from production in order to rework the ending, which “was deemed unsatisfactory.”
Update: Director Christopher McQuarrie has responded, briefly, to the report.

After a trailer and Super Bowl spot, it’s pretty fair to say fans are lukewarm on Alan Taylor‘s Terminator Genisys. We’re intrigued by the casting and some of the ideas teased in these spots, but the ultimate execution is a huge question mark. Well, Thursday, two pieces of news broke which are both on the encouraging side.
First up, Paramount and IMAX have announced that Genisys will be released in IMAX when it hits theaters on July 1. That’s not a guarantee of quality, but it’s good news for fans of the franchise who want to see the new film in the biggest format possible.
Second, an Arnold Schwarzenegger fansite posted two Terminator Genisys script reviews, both of which are positive. They’re spoiler free too, so no worries there, and you can read excerpts below. Read More »
