American Psycho Remake Moves Forward at Lionsgate

8 December 2011 10:34 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Lionsgate has hired Noble Jones to write and direct a remake of American Psycho, which will mark his feature directorial debut.

The original American Psycho starred Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman, an affluent investment banker in the 1980s, who moonlights as a serial killer. Noble Jones pitched a new take to the studio, which explores how Patrick Bateman adapts to New York City in the 21st Century. The original American Psycho is adapted from Bret Easton Ellis' novel of the same name.

The remake has not been given the green light by Lionsgate yet, and is still in the early stages of development.

Noble Jones, a protege of director David Fincher, has directed several commercials and music videos. He also served as a second unit director on David Fincher's The Social Network.

American Psycho was released April 14th, 2000 and stars Christian Bale, Justin Theroux, Josh Lucas, Bill Sage, »

The History of Video Games as Movies

15 August 2011 1:28 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It goes without saying that some of the big blockbuster video games are becoming more profitable than some of the biggest films of the year and I know myself, I have sat through cut scenes and thought, “This should be a movie.” So it’s understandable why there are so many games that become films, the transition seems logical.

For some reason though, the majority of these films never seem to live up to its gaming counter part. Weak plots, awful acting, no emotion? Just something that seems to happen constantly when games make the transition, but why is it almost always this way?

We take a brief look at the history of video games as movies.

Super Mario Bros. (1993) Estimated Gross $20,915,465 (USA)

 

For many gamers, this was their first encounter with a video game getting the Hollywood treatment, and their first encounter as to why this can go horribly wrong. »

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Season 8 Episode 6 Review: ‘The Hero’

15 August 2011 1:51 AM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

It looks like the theme that has developed over the course of Curb Your Enthusiasm’s eighth season is that Larry David can’t seem keep a woman he’s courting around for too long. At some point, either he or the Fates — who always seem to be conspiring against him — will do something to bring an end to those relationships. Geopolitics came in between Larry and the owner of his favorite Palestinian chicken place. Another relationship ceased to exist the moment he refused to express sorrow over the passing of the woman’s father (who happened to have died two years ago). In tonight’s episode, “The Hero”: it was shoelaces. We pick up where we left off last week, with Larry still enjoying his Pinkberry on the flight to New York. A beautiful blonde named Donna (Samantha Mathis, who you might remember as Princess Daisy from the »

See New Pics from the Straight-to-dvd Tekken Movie You Didn't Know Existed

12 May 2011 5:20 PM, PDT | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

Did you know that all movies based on video games are five-star landmarks of cinema? I did the research and it's true. No use double-checking my work: Double Dragon, Resident Evil, Super Mario Bros. (Happy birthday, Samantha Mathis!), Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Mortal Kombat: Back in the Habit, and the coup de grace, Street Fighter all qualify as gems. Another one is about to join their company: the completely ignored Tekken film. Let's observe this fresh nugget of DVD-bound Namco gold! »

DVD and Blu-Ray Releases: January 18th - Buried in a Death Race Too

17 January 2011 12:20 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Does claustrophobia set in easily for you? Then you may want to steer clear of the video aisles of your favorite stores as last year's intense buried alive flick (starring the future Green Lantern) is coming on home.

Being that this is another light week release wise, you don't have too many other options. That is unless you're in the mood for high speed chases featuring coffin-looking vehicles that could end up causing just as much anxiety.

Or maybe you'd just like to find comfort in another Roger Corman fest from a kinder, gentler era - a triple treat that has nothing to do with coffins. Yay!

Buried (Blu-ray Review)

Directed by Rodrigo Cortés

Starring Ryan Reynolds, and the voices of Samantha Mathis, Erik Palladino, José Luis García Pérez, Robert Paterson, Stephen Tobolowsky
