Madonna Will Direct 'Adé: A Love Story,' Is Desperately Seeking a Screenwriter

26 March 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Madonna doesn't care what us mere mortals think, and who could blame her? Forget Queen Esther; Madonna was Queen of Dragons for Purim! You can't shush her during a movie! So why would terrible reviews stop her from directing another movie? They won't!

The book that's luring Madonna back to the director's chair is a politically charged love story by Rebecca Walker, "Adé: A Love Story." Walker, who is the daughter of Alice Walker and Mel Leventhal, has previously written non-fiction about feminism, sexuality, being multiracial and Jewish, and her painful, contentious relationship with her Pulitzer Prize-winning mother. "Adé" is a semi-autobiographical novella about a bisexual woman who, while traveling abroad with a friend, falls in love with a Swahili Muslim man named Adé. Their love affair, which takes place on an island off the coast of Kenya, is interrupted by political upheaval and much more.

Madonna co-wrote and directed »

Oscars 2014: Jimmy Kimmel turns viral videos into epic trailers

3 March 2014 2:35 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jimmy Kimmel enlisted several Hollywood stars and Oscar nominees to star in film trailer versions of YouTube classics last night (March 2).

Viral videos including Charlie Bit My Finger, Keyboard Cat and Double Rainbow were transformed into epic promos of future fictional dramas.

'Bitman Begins' sees brothers Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth as estranged siblings, who face off after many years in a parody of 'Charlie Bit My Finger'.

Tom Hanks also appears to warn the younger Hemsworth brother, while Meryl Streep also makes a cameo.

Queen Latifah parodies 'Sweet Brown' in 'Ain't Nobody Got Time For That', in which Captain Phillips's Barkhad Abdi appears as a young Barack Obama and Adam Driver plays Steve Jobs.

Kimmel's enemy Matt Damon also stars "in his most important deleted scene yet", before the real Sweet Brown interrupts him.

'Ameowdeus' spoofs 'Keyboard Cat', a period drama starring Ben Kingsley, Gary Oldman and Mandy Patinkin. »

'Jimmy Kimmel Live': YouTube videos get Oscar movie treatment

2 March 2014 11:45 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Jimmy Kimmel certainly had something special planned for his post-Academy Awards episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Right at the top of the show, Kimmel said adapting books was a thing of the past and it was time to move on to YouTube videos. That leads to four different trailers, each of which were amazing, based on popular clips from the video-sharing site.

First, Martin Scorsese presents "Bitman Begins," which is a Christopher Nolan-esque take on the "Charlie Bit My Finer" video, starring Chris Hemsworth and Liam Hemsworth as brothers at war. Rounding out the cast was Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, but the real star of the clip was the rooftop showdown between the brothers. Liam just likes to bite too much.

Morgan Freeman showed up next to introduce "Sweet Brown," a take on the viral video "Ain't Nobody Got Time For That." Queen Latifah was Sweet Brown, while »

Watch: Alfonso Cuaron Explains Why Robert Downey Jr. & Angelina Jolie Weren't Cast In 'Gravity'

19 February 2014 9:52 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The long, long journey for Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" wasn't solely dedicated to the effects-heavy technical production. Before cameras rolled, the filmmaker went through an arduous process to nail down his leading actors. Way back in the spring of 2010, Robert Downey Jr. and Angelina Jolie were tentatively slated to lead the sci-fi thriller, but by the fall the actress had pulled out, setting off an arms race for the vacant role. Natalie PortmanMarion CotillardCarey MulliganAbbie CornishRebecca HallOlivia Wilde and Blake Lively were all mentioned/considered for the part before Sandra Bullock signed on, with George Clooney joining the project at the end of 2010, replacing Rdj who had also exited. The rest is history, but what happened to the original duo? Cuaron, who recently sat down with THR's Stephen Galloway, provided some info on the departure.

Remake of Verhoeven's RoboCop Bombs in North American

17 February 2014 6:39 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

RoboCop’ 2014 movie: Full-fledged flop at domestic box office (photo: Joel Kinnaman in ‘RoboCop’ 2014) Directed by José Padilha, and starring Joel Kinnaman and Abbie Cornish, Sony Pictures’ $100 million-budgeted RoboCop 2014 remake opened with disappointing numbers on Wednesday, February 12, 2014. Things improved a bit over the weekend, but there’s no denying that RoboCop 2014 will become a major domestic box office bomb. (See also: José Padilha hates ‘RoboCop’ 2014 filmmaking process.) According to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo, Padilha’s remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 "classic" (as mentioned elsewhere on this site, just about anything made before 2003 is considered a classic these days) landed in third place this extended Presidents Day Weekend, February 14-17, trailing both Warner Bros.’ overwhelmingly well-received The Lego Movie and Sony Pictures / ScreenGems’ low-budget romantic comedy About Last Night. Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street), and featuring the voices of Chris Pratt, »

Diy Monster Makers: Celebrity Zombie Bling by Slight Jewelry

17 February 2014 9:00 AM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

There's a lot of Diy horror-themed jewelry on the market these days, but not as many many high-end designers have jumped in the game so far... which is a shame, because I've found that a lot of horror fans have pretty elegant taste, and quite a few have deep enough wallets to match.     Photos: Slight Jewelry   One of the more prestigious jewelry designers to get into the horror business is New York artist Amanda Campbell, whose pieces have graced fashion runways and red carpets around the world.    Photos: Slight Jewelry   While Campbell's company Slight Jewelery has turned out some genre-friendly designs (including official merch for the new RoboCop), their nod to pure horror is the “Brains” collection – a line of  pendants, earrings and other elegant gold, silver and brass pieces shaped like moaning undead heads and anti-zombie weaponry (assault rifles, swords, axes, etc.), many accented with precious gems like diamonds and rubies. »

RoboCop: Joel Kinnaman Suits Up Well Enough, but Remake Falls Flat

17 February 2014 8:30 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

RoboCop, the latest in a string of '80s remakes, has a lot in common with the original directed by Paul Verhoven.. However, anyone expecting the same shock to the system that the 1987 flick delivered, will be disappointed. As police officer Alex Murphy, The Killing's Joel Kinnaman wears the suit well. He delivers in his role, as do the performances from the stellar supporting cast which includes Michael Keaton, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson and Abbie Cornish. Read on before hopping into the squad car. 1. Ptsd Soldier: One of the strongest angles in the remake is the focus on Alex Murphy's intense emotional and physical struggles following a near-fatal car bomb. Kinnaman does the role originally »

New RoboCop 2014 movie delivered great hardcore action,drama & more. Columbia Pictures (Sony) released their new action/sci-fi/remake flick, "RoboCop," into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out, and thought it was pretty entertaining, serving up lots of action, coupled with intense drama, and more. The movie stars: Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste. In the new flick, the year is set in 2028, and revolves around good cop, Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) and this OmniCorp company that's desperately trying to get approval for their army of robot protectors be put on American soil so they can maximize their revenue and profits. However, they keep getting turned down, because the American public doesn't feel good about an emotionless robot trying to protect them.

Box office update: 'Lego' and 'About Last Night' freeze out the competition with $13 million each on Friday

15 February 2014 9:45 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

The Lego Movie built a second floor to its box office success yesterday, earning $13.03 million and just beating out the Kevin Hart-starring About Last Night, a remake of the Rob Lowe- and Demi Moore-topped 1986 comedy.

Two other revamps of films from the era of Reagan and Quiet Riot did less well: Endless Love, which stars Gabriella Wilde and Alex Pettyfer, raked in $7.3 million while Robocop, whose deep bench of acting talent includes Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, and Samuel Jackson (but definitely not Laurence Fishburne), scooped up $7 million. Maybe folks were disappointed they couldn »
