The year of Baggins, Potter and Spider-Man also had a wealth of lesser-known movies. Here’s our pick of 2002's underappreciated films...
At the top of the box office tree, 2002 was dominated by fantasy and special effects. Peter Jackson's The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers made almost a billion dollars all by itself, with Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets taking second place and Sam Raimi's Spider-Man not too far behind.
In many ways, 2002 set the tempo for the Hollywood blockbuster landscape, which has changed relatively little in the decade since. A quick look at 2013‘s top 10, for example, reveals a markedly similar mix of superhero movies, with Iron Man 3 still ruling the roost at the time of writing, followed by effects-heavy action flicks and family-friendly animated features.
As usual in these lists, we're looking »
Birthday shoutouts go to Sir Kenneth Branagh (above), who is 53, Bobby Flay is 49, Raven Symone is 28, Susan Dey is 61, and Gloria Loring is 67. In addition to siring Robin Thicke and singing The Facts of Life theme song, she also gave us one of the greatest duets of the 80′s, which peaked at #2 in 1986.
Happy Endings is returning to TV! Calm down … not with new episodes. Vh-1 has announced that they’ve acquired all three seasons of the late, lamented series, and will air them starting with “a marathon of every episode beginning December 31 at 8 Pm running through New Year’s Day before settling into its new home on Wednesday nights from 7-9 Pm, beginning January 8.”
Agnieszka Holland will direct NBC’s four-hour miniseries remake of Rosemary’s Baby. No word on casting yet.
In this special two-night, four-hour event that’s airing simulcast on A&E, History and Lifetime, Bonnie & Clyde retells the fascinating tale of the legendary couple whose crime spree enraptured the American public. Directed by Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy), Clyde Barrow (Emile Hirsch) and Bonnie Parker (Holliday Grainger) were able to stay one step ahead of the law and escape capture, time and time again, which led to riskier and more dangerous crimes, making them the most famous criminals of the modern era. The film also stars Holly Hunter, William Hurt, Sarah Hyland, Lane Garrison, Elizabeth Reaser, Austin Hebert and Dale Dickey. During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, actress Holliday Grainger talked about how she won this role from an audition she put on tape, what she most loved about this script, how she viewed Bonnie Parker, how she found her performance, working with her partner-in-crime Emile Hirsch, »

Yesterday, Bryan Singer announced that 20th Century Fox's X-Men franchise would see another release in 2016 with X-Men: Apocalypse, and now it's been announced via The Hollywood Reporter that writer-producer Simon Kinberg has signed a three-year deal with a view to expanding the studio's Marvel properties "into full-blown universes, with the hope of creating for Fox something akin to the Marvel model of interlocking movies."
"I have a lot of ideas on how to built those brands and do what everybody is thinking of these days: Be like Marvel," says Kinberg, whose credits include X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class, as well as the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Fantastic Four. "I want to be able to build stories over multiple movies."
Now, quite where this leave's Fox's 'Marvel Consultant' Mark Millar is anyone's guess...
As well as developing Fox's Marvel slate, Kinberg also has »

“Lucky” is a word that crops up repeatedly in an interview with Paul Greengrass. More than once, the 58-year-old Briton interrupts his own train of thought to express his general gratitude for the way his career has turned out.
“The opportunities I’ve been given, and continue to be given — I’ve always felt very blessed,” he says deliberately, almost bashfully.
Let it be said that 2013 has given Greengrass much reason to feel this way. “Captain Phillips,” his first feature since 2010’s underperforming “Green Zone,” has held fast at the domestic and international box office, drawn admiring reviews and significant awards hopes.
Greengrass’ own trophy haul will begin at the Dec. 8 British Independent Film Awards, where he’ll receive the Variety Award for bringing international attention to U.K. cinema — a fitting honor for a director who has remained fiercely loyal to British collaborators even as Hollywood, beginning with his 2004 franchise takeover “The Bourne Supremacy, »

There's just under a month to go until Christmas, which also means there's just under a month before Chris Pine (Star Trek) becomes the latest actor to appear as Tom Clancy's CIA analyst in Paramount Pictures' spy reboot Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, and Paramount Pictures has released a new poster featuring Pine alongside co-stars Kevin Costner (Man of Steel) and Keira Knightley (Anna Karenina), as well as a batch of images which also includes a couple of shots of director / co-star Kenneth Branagh (Thor)...

Paramount Pictures Australia has closed its Perth office and eliminated the sales function in its Brisbane office, while marketing for South Australia is now being handled out of Victoria.
As a result, seven permanent employees have departed.
Sales for Queensland and Wa are now being handled out of Sydney but the Brisbane office will continue to run marketing in that State. Paramount was the last of the major distributors to maintain an office in Perth.
In October the studio laid off 110 employees globally in areas such as international theatrical and home media distribution, marketing, legal and finance.
Paramount has the smallest release slate of the Hollywood studios, although it has scored at the global box-office this year with G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Star Trek Into Darkness, World War Z and Bad Grandpa, »

This is where we start a war. We'll lose friends, and cause controversy. Because somewhere on this list below is something you're dying to see. In fact, you might be fanatical about some of these inclusions (Christopher Nolan fans, we're staring straight at you). But it's inevitable. And unavoidable. Hollywood is releasing hundreds of movies in 2014. Some of them will be good. Some of them will be bad. And some will be box office disasters. In compiling this list, we're not declaring that all, or even any, of these movies will be unwatchable. Some will be quite good. Maybe even a masterpiece or a classic in the making. There are a few that we're desperate to see ourselves. We really want them to succeed. But every movie here is a risk taker. And some of this shit? Hollywood should clearly know better. These are the 14 Biggest Potential Bombs of 2014.

Pine plays a young incarnation of the character as he uncovers a terrorist plot targeting the financial sector.
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit will arrive in Us cinemas on January 17 and in the UK on January 31.
Watch a trailer for the film below: »
Though we were a bit unsettled by the first poster for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit hitting just hours after the death of the character's creator Tom Clancy, the trailer for the action thriller looks pretty damn good. Chris Pine leads the film as the title character, which is essentially an origin story of the CIA analyst who turns into a field agent. Now a new international poster for the film has arrived, and we wanted to point it out because like the teaser poster, this one also feels like an unused design for Paramount's Star Trek Into Darkness. We're still looking forward to the film, but remember it's arriving in January next year instead. Here's the new poster for Kenneth Branagh's Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit from Imp Awards: Kenneth Branagh directs Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit with a script written by Steven Zaillian, Anthony Peckham, Adam Cozad and David Koepp. »
