We know the basic story of The Interview: a buffoonish TV personality (James Franco) and his producer (Seth Rogen) are given the chance to interview North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, but are recruited by US intelligence agencies to assassinate the dictator. Things aren’t as easy as all that, of course. One problem may be that Franco’s character and the reclusive North Korean leader get along better than anyone thought they would. This new trailer shows how something as minor as a Katy Perry song can be a big between cultures — and who knows what effect that might have on the nefarious mission these guys have accepted?

Sony has dropped the Steve Jobs movie that Danny Boyle has been preparing to direct. This is surprising development for Aaron Sorkin‘s Steve Jobs script, even given the lengthy and public casting process associated with it. The film was taking some time to come together, but Sorkin’s script is said to be unusual and demanding, and we would not have guessed this would go down like this. All is not lost for the script, however, as Universal is reportedly making moves to pick it up. Read More »

The Steve Jobs film to be directed soon by Danny Boyle isn’t a biopic, emphasizes screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, and we know that the structure of the film is unusual. Rather than tracing the entrepreneur’s life, the script looks in on his life at three specific points in time over more than a decade. We don’t know much else, however. Michael Fassbender is said to be the top choice for the starring role after Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale passed, and that casting should be firmed up soon.
But there’s an interesting new bit of information: while Steve Jobs’ daughter Lisa Brennan-Jobs did not speak to Walter Isaacson for the book upon which the film is primarily based, she did speak to Sorkin. He calls her “the heroine of the movie,” and that suggests that the film could add something new to our understanding of Jobs’ life, and not just rehash what we’ve already known. Read More »

Almost $150 million in domestic box office. And in a era where international grosses mean everything, Paul Blart only did $37 million overseas. Yes, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 is a movie America demanded with their hard earned dollars. It’s scheduled for release April 17, 2015 and the first trailer is now out. Below, watch the Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 trailer. Read More »
