I’m almost too excited to type the next sentence. A new Wes Anderson movie comes out next month. It’s called Moonrise Kingdom and it’s about a young boy scout who disappears with a local girl, turning the entire town on its head. Anderson’s cast is as impressive as ever, featuring Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, Bruce Willis, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Jason Schwartzman and more. The trailer is magic and several sites just debuted animated character posters complete with multiple new images and quotes from the film. Link to them all after the jump. Read More »

There are about a million reasons to look foward to the arrival of warmer weather each year, but for cinephiles, one of the biggest is the summer movie season. This year’s crop looks like a nicely varied one, and two of the titles I’ve been most eager to see couldn’t be more different. Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus seems as serious and futuristic as Wes Anderson‘s Moonrise Kingdom does whimsical and retro, but they both look pretty fantastic if you ask me. Check out new images from both films after the jump.

For a long time now, we’ve watched as Dan Aykroyd tried to bring Ghostbusters 3 into being through sheer force of will. And it almost happened: he scripted one version, then Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (The Office, Year One) wrote a script that Ivan Reitman was almost ready to direct. Aykroyd has been working on that script, and Harold Ramis was on board.
One guy was said to be the primary roadblock: Bill Murray, who according to all reports is not interested in the film. Aykroyd, to his credit, didn’t want to do the movie without the original crew in place. And now Aykroyd admits that Murray isn’t interested in the film, and that it is in “suspended animation” as a result. Read More »
They eventually made a fourth Indiana Jones. That’s what I tell myself each time Dan Aykroyd comes out and speaks, with the utmost confidence, that a third Ghostbusters will eventually be made. Like the Jones sequel, Ghostbusters 3 is a movie that has been long rumored and discussed ad nauseum. So I figure if Spielberg, Lucas and Ford can find a common ground after years of conjecture, the same will probably happen for the Ghostbusters crew.
Of course, we all know the main hold out has been Bill Murray but in the latest twist, Aykroyd suggests they could “Jack Ryan” that role and just make it with someone else. I wonder what Sony has to say about that. Read more after the jump. Read More »

We’re covering a few sequels in very different stages of the development process today — one that’s gearing up to begin shooting soon, another that’s yet to be greenlit, and two more that’ve been in the works for what feels like forever. After the jump:
- Bill Murray literally shreds the latest Ghostbusters 3 script to pieces
- David Fincher wants to shoot the two Dragon Tattoo sequels back-to-back
- Gary Mitchell — or Harry Mudd or Trelane or the Talosians or the Horta — could be the baddie in Star Trek 2
- Kathleen Kennedy says Roger Rabbit 2 is stalled for now

Forget Ghostbusters III — Bill Murray has some potentially great stuff coming out. He shot a part in the new Wes Anderson film, Moonrise Kingdom, and will have a role in Roman Coppola’s second feature, A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III. And in between those, he played President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in a film called Hyde Park on Hudson.
That’s the first look at Murray as FDR, above, and unfortunately it’s all we’ve got right now. But hit the jump to have another look at the details of the movie, in the event you passed over it the couple times we’ve reported on it in the past. Read More »
