While blockbuster summer will start coming to an end later this month, there are still some gems waiting for audiences to wrap up the season in August. One of those will undoubtedly be the return of Winnie the Pooh.
Christopher Robin finds the childhood friend of Winnie the Pooh (and the rest of his pals from the Hundred Acre Wood) all grown up and stressed out by the responsibilities of everyday life. He’s not able to spend much time with his family, so Winnie the Pooh takes the time to help Christopher robin live a little more carefree. Read More »
If you read this headline and were wondering, “Wait, wasn’t a Christopher Robin movie just in theaters a few months ago?”, you are correct. There was indeed a film about Winnie the Pooh creator A.A. Milne and his family late last year called Goodbye Christopher Robin, which starred Domhnall Gleeson and Margot Robbie.
But Disney has a totally separate film coming out this summer called simply Christopher Robin, and now some new photos and details have made their way online. Learn more about the new movie below.

Amazon’s third pilot season is open for business, and you can now watch new shows from directors such as Whit Stillman, David Gordon Green, and Mark Forster. Stillman’s pilot, The Cosmopolitans, is already getting great buzz; Green’s, Red Oaks, considerably less so. Below, we’ve got info on all five of the new pilots, with behind the scenes videos for each, and a sizzle reel for the whole pilot season. Read More »
Briefly: Amazon’s next round of pilots includes a show from Whit Stillman (Metropolitan, The Last Days of Disco) and one directed by Marc Forster (World War Z, Quantum of Solace).
Whit Stillman’s show is The Cosmopolitans, which “follows a group of young American expatriates in Paris who are searching for love and friendship in a foreign city.” It stars Adam Brody and Chloe Sevigny , and will shoot in Paris starting this week. Brody previously appeared in Stillman’s most recent film, Damsels in Distress, while Sevigny was in The Last Days of Disco. Dree Hemingway and Shaun Evans also co-star.
Marc Forster isn’t as intimately connected to the drama Hand of God, but will direct the pilot. The show, written by Ben Watkins, stars Ron Perlman as “a hard-living judge who uses visions he believes are sent by God as leads in his vigilante mission to track down the rapist who destroyed his family.” Dana Delany will play Perlaman’s wife, and Garrett Dillahunt plays “a born-again sociopath with violent tendencies.”
Both pilots will appear on Amazon’s streaming service later this year, at which point viewers will be able to vote on the continuation of each story. [EW]

We know what Marc Forster won’t be directing in the near future. Although World War Z was ultimately a success, the film had a notoriously difficult production process and it wasn’t much of a surprise when we heard that Forster wouldn’t be back for the sequel. Now we have some idea of what he might be doing isntead.
Forster is attached to helm Red Rising, an adaptation of the recent sci-fi novel by Pierce Brown. The script was written by Brown himself. Get plot details and more after the jump.

Despite World War Z being one of 2013’s biggest surprise hits, the road to get there was very bumpy. Years of development preceded a difficult production, and during post-production, a whole new ending was written and shot. That raised questions and concerns about the film, most of which were directed at one man: director Marc Forster. It was probably more than any one person should have to handle.
So it’s not a surprise that Forster, who also directed Quantum of Solace and Finding Neverland, will not be back for a sequel, should it come to fruition. Read More »
