The Hangover star Bradley Cooper is developing a movie that sounds like something Chuck Norris might have done in the eighties. It’s a true story called American Sniper, based on the best-selling book by Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the man with the most recorded sniper kills in American history. The project is set up at Warner Bros., Jason Dean Hall (Spread) is adapting the book, and Cooper is producing and will likely star. Read more below. Read More »

It’s common knowledge that Pacific Rim, Guillermo Del Toro‘s sci-fi action epic, is about humans driving massive robots in order to fight massive monsters who are invading the Earth. We know Charlie Hunnam from Sons of Anarchy is in it along with Idris Elba from The Wire, Rinko Kikuchi from The Brothers Bloom and Charlie Day from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. We also know it was originally scheduled for release in May 2013 but has now moved back to July 12, 2013.
Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have now released the official plot description of the film that links a bunch of those dots and reveals that the movie has some Real Steel in it as well. Read it after the jump. Read More »
Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper‘s big budget, musical adaptation of Les Miserables made my top ten anticipated films of 2012 because behind all the geek stereotypes, a good musical really gets to me and Les Miserables is one of my favorites. So when I say these newly leaked set videos featuring stars Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway singing are among some of the best I’ve ever seen, it comes from a place of passion.
One of the videos looks to be the grand finale of the story, the reprise of “Do You Hear The People Sing?” performed the entire company. Another is of Jackman’s character, Jean Valjean, storming out of a church singing and a third is of Russell Crowe‘s character Javier, who is hunting Valjean, riding to set on a horse.
Okay, so the videos get less exciting as they go along but they do provide a unique glimpse at the filming of such a massive musical. Check them out after the jump. Read More »

Guillermo Del Toro has been north of the border shooting his massive mech vs. monster sci-fi action film Pacific Rim for many months now but little to nothing has leaked. Most likely, that’s because Del Toro and company – including stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba and Charlie Day – have been shooting on soundstages.
It seems that’s about to change very soon, though, as the production has begun to outfit some Toronto, Canada streets to look like Tokyo after a massive monster battle and a Canadian News team got to walk around the set. Check out the video after the jump. Read More »
As good as the summer of 2012 could potentially be for blockbuster movies, 2013 is looking even better. Films such as Iron Man 3, Star Trek 2, The Hangover Part 3, Fast & Furious 6 and Man of Steel just scratch the surface of films we know will have built in, mega-audiences and expectations. One huge wildcard on the schedule though is Guillermo Del Toro‘s robot-infused alien invasion film Pacific Rim.
Warner Bros. is showing extreme confidence in the film, moving it from an slot in early May to the more crowded month of July. It’ll now open on July 12, 2013, with competition such as Robopocalypse, Grown Ups 2 and The Wolverine.
Del Toro has been in production on Pacific Rim for some months now so, hopefully, we’ll learn something new about it soon. For now, check out our previous coverage. Thanks to Box Office Mojo for the info.
Tarsem Singh has made his name on lush, even indulgent visuals in films like The Cell, The Fall, and Immortals, as well as in music videos that preceded his feature work. His new film, the Snow White retelling Mirror Mirror, seems to be scaled back just a tiny bit from the all-out ‘feast of design’ approach seen in his previous films, but it will still likely be more ambitiously designed than most other films this year.
Tarsem has a few possible follow-up projects in the wings, but the one he really wants to do is a film that would help him break from the visually-dominated approach. Eye in the Sky is a sprawling modern war film with dozens of characters — think of the sort of project you’d expect to see Steven Soderbergh make — that had Olivier Hirschbiegel (Downfall) set to direct last year. Evidently there is some possible turnover in the director’s chair, and Tarsem wants the job. Read More »
