The runup to big reveals from Marvel’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, which recently wrapped its main shoot with James Gunn at the helm, is that we have only a vague idea of how some of the film’s ideas will come to life. We saw a reel at Comic Con that gave us a good sense of the comic adventure tone, but then there are some pretty wild elements. There’s the tree-man-alien Groot, voiced by Vin Diesel, whose only line in the film is “I am Groot.”
Then there’s the gun-toting Rocket Raccoon. Bradley Cooper voices the critter, but he’s not a merely meant as a cuddly ploy to drive merchandise sales. He’s an angry one, according to Guardians star Chris Pratt, and possibly the best character in the film. Read More »

David O. Russell has reunited with his Silver Linings Playbook stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper for American Hustle, which tells the story of a scam operation run by the FBI in the ’70s. The film also features actors such as Christian Bale and Amy Adams (who worked with Russell on The Fighter).
The first teaser trailer sold the fun of watching them all decked out in period garb, lying, stealing, screwing, and scamming, with Led Zeppelin scoring the action, and probably costing more than Russell’s first couple films in the process.
This new trailer gives you a lot more to chew on, with Christian Bale’s character setting the scene and then dialogue from each of the major characters to establish each, and how they’re relating to and messing up each other. By the end you’ll have some idea of what American Hustle is all about, and you’ll probably want to see a lot more. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

The intensified scandal over the doping actions of Lance Armstrong have irrevocably tainted his participation in cycling. As you might expect, however, the controversy has only increased the speed at which various producers are trying to put together a film based on his story.

Steven Spielberg just dropped out of his second project in a row. This time it’s the true story American Sniper, about Navy SEAL and marksman Chris Kyle, to be played by Bradley Cooper. (The actor is also producing.) Warner Bros. will continue to move ahead with the project.
Before signing up for American Sniper, Spielberg also was set to helm Robopocalypse. However, issues with the script forced the filmmaker to delay production on that film indefinitely. According to reports, in this case, the director simply couldn’t get his vision to mesh with the proposed budget.
Spielberg still has tons of films on his plate, but having dropped this one, there’s no word what he’ll direct next. Let’s try and figure it out below. Read More »
