We’ve known the basics about Real Steel for a while: Shawn Levy directs the Disney/DreamWorks picture that stars Hugh Jackman as an ex-fighter who reinvents himself as a robot boxing mechanic/coach/promoter when human boxing is outlawed.
Now thanks to a script review, there are more details available about the film. Two warnings: first, some of this might have changed, as the film has been shot and the script draft referenced is not the final version. Second, there could be spoilers within, so if you’d rather wait for the trailer, stop reading now. Read More »

With just over two months until release, Dreamworks has unleashed the full trailer for I Am Number Four. Based on a sci-fi book by Pittacus Lore (a pen name), the Michael Bay produced film version is directed by D.J. Caruso (Eagle Eye) and stars Alex Pettyfer (Beastly) as one of an alien race who escaped to Earth and is now being hunted. Timothy Olyphant and Teresa Palmer are also in the film which, from this new trailer, looks very much like Caruso’s Disturbia infused with alien powers.
I Am Number Four will be released on February 18 in both regular and IMAX formats. (Side note: Dreamworks also announced that Shawn Levy’s Hugh Jackman action film Real Steel is also going to be released in IMAX on October 7). Watch the I Am Number Four trailer after the break. Read More »

It’s always feast or famine with that Steven Spielberg. He goes on stretches where he releases two films a year – like in 1993, 1997, 2002 and 2005 – then there are long periods where he gives the director’s chair a rest, like the last five years (I’m still trying to erase 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull from my mind so please forgive its omission.) Well, it seems 2011 is not going only to be a Spielberg feast, it’s going to be a Spielberg explosion! Already scheduled to have two films hit during the calendar year, DreamWorks announced Wednesday that they’ve shifted his literary adaptation War Horse from its original summer release date back to the Christmas season, placing it within days of Spielberg’s co-directoral effort The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn. Hit the jump for other release date shifts, including Real Steel, Fright Night 3D and more. Read More »

Looks like Maggie Gyllenhaal will play alongside her husband Peter Sarsgaard in a biopic of bluegrass pioneer Bill Munroe. She told ScreenCrave she’d been in the film about “Bill Monroe, who invented Blue Grass music had a kind of Sid and Nancy style affair with this woman Bessie Lee Mauldin throughout his life… T-Bone Burnett’s going to do the music and Callie Khouri who wrote Thelma & Louise wrote the script so we’re going to do that together.”
After the break, Scott Speedman takes a vow, Josh Hartnett may reunite with Paul McGuigan, and Real Steel adds one more. Read More »
