For the past several decades, the name Tim Burton all but guaranteed a film with an element of fantasy. It seems he wants a break. Though the director has several potential films on his plate, his next is likely to be a small, true story.
Once a producer on the film, Burton is now set to direct Big Eyes, the true story of legendary painter Margaret Keane and her husband Walter. Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz are attached to play the Keanes from a script by Ed Wood writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. The Weinstein Company is likely to produce and distribute.

We knew that the guiding principle behind Zack Snyder‘s new Superman revival Man of Steel was to make the alien superhero make sense in a modern era. And while we don’t know precisely how he and his actors and crew have accomplished this, but the first footage from the film does gieve some indication. We see Clark Kent and his alter-ego Superman (Henry Cavill) having what appears to be a crisis of conscience or morality, and doing some serious soul-searching.
New images from the film have hit the web, and while they don’t exactly pinpoint more details of Snyder’s approach, a couple of his accompanying comments are useful. Read More »

We’ve had ample opportunity to pore over photos of Henry Cavill as Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel, exhaustively analyzing his new costume and chiseled Kryptonian jaw from every angle.

If you ever want to feel bad about your paltry salary, looking into what you favorite A-listers make per film is a good way to do it. No doubt Kristen Stewart works hard on her Twilight movies — it can’t be easy saying some of those lines with a straight face — but can her $25 million payday for Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2 really be worth it?
Actually, yes. Forbes has compiled a list of the actors whose movies offer the highest returns for their hefty paychecks, and Stewart comes in at an impressive #2 on the list. The only person who makes a better investment is Natalie Portman, whose Black Swan ultimately grossed 25 times its $13 million budget. Read the full list after the jump.

This morning Megan Fox, Ed Helms, and Jessica Alba announced the nominations for the 2013 Golden Globes. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization behind the event, is famous for nominating films and performances simply based on their star factor — if there’s an actor that members of the HFPA want to hang out with, they’re sure to get a nomination.
But the HFPA is great at putting on a show, and so the Golden Globes generate a lot of attention every year. And, as the NY Times points out, with the Globes nominations coming just days before Oscar nomination voting starts, there’s a possibility that nominations here could affect Oscar voting. The Best Picture nomination set includes what is already becoming a standard set of awards favorites, such as Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, and Zero Dark Thirty, but there are also nominations for Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, and Django Unchained. Salmon Fishing in the Yemen picked up a few nominations, actually, which was one of the big surprises.
The Golden Globes will air on January 13, 2013, hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. The full nomination list is below. Read More »
