How many of you have ever read an actual original era pulp story? Anything involving Doc Savage or The Shadow or John Carter or Doctor Death or The Phantom Detective or Tarzan or Solomon Kane or Conan or The Continental Op? If you haven't, that puts you in what I am sure is a vast majority at this point. I can't fault anyone for not being a reader of that sort of source material. It's not something that is part of the active mainstream right now, but if Hollywood gets its way, that may be about to change. There are some huge names in the world of pulp. By far, the biggest budget pulp title currently pending release is the David Yates "Tarzan" that Warner Bros. is putting out in 2016. When I interviewed Samuel L. Jackson at Comic-Con this summer, he repeatedly told me how excited he was by what »

Although no deal is secured yet for Yates to direct Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them yet, Variety reports that the director and Warner Bros are close to an agreement. »
He’s currently hard at work on Tarzan starring Alexander Skarsgård, Margot Robbie, Christoph Waltz, and Samuel L. Jackson, but the filmmaker is of course best known for helming the final four Harry Potter movies, including both instalments of the critically acclaimed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
While no deal is currently in place, negotiations are said to be ongoing and Yates has agreed to return.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is set around 70 years before the events of the Harry Potter movies and takes the action to the other side of the pond with a New York setting. The lead is Newt Scamander, the writer of the Hogwarts textbook of »

Are you ready for a Beach Boys musical? Fox 2000 is reportedly moving ahead with All Summer Long, having tapped The Vow helmer Michael Sucsy to sit in the director’s chair on the project, and now we’re hearing that English model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne is in talks for the lead role of Caroline.
Further plot details are being kept under wraps, but Fox 2000 paid $2 million to buy the pitch by Susannah Grant, along with rights to the Beach Boys catalog. All Summer Long is reportedly a 1960s California-set story inspired by the band’s music.
After breaking out as a model for Victoria’s Secret, Burberry and Dkny, Delevingne successfully managed to transition into acting with a small role in Joe Wright’s Anna Karenina. Since then, she’s been keeping busy with a number of high-profile parts.

I finally got a chance to see Terry Gilliam’s new film The Zero Theorem and was mightily impressed by its ability to conjure some of the magic of Gilliam classics like Brazil and Twelve Monkeys (albeit in a far warmer, less brutal manner than the latter film). So I'm really glad we're debuting these character posters that don't just showcase the performers in the film, but the philosophies of the people they are playing. The movie is all about ideas, a philosophical dialogue. And these get at that. The Zero Theorem stars Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, a computer hacker who searches for the meaning of life while being distracted by Management, a shadowy figure from an Orwellian corporation; Melanie Thierry, Tilda Swinton, and David Thewlis also star. The film hits iTunes today, August 19th and limited theaters on September 19th. Be sure to check out the trailer and »

Despite Pirates of the Caribbean being one of Disney’s biggest cash cow franchises, getting the fifth installment, Dead Men Tell No Tales, off the ground has been hard to accomplish. Kon Tiki directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg are attached to helm the film, with Johnny Depp confirmed to reprise the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, but the film has been delayed several times, and is now eyeing a 2017 release date, six years after the previous installment, On Stranger Tides.
Mega producer Jerry Bruckheimer has been saying that the film will begin production in early 2015, and a new report seems to back that up. According to Inside Film, Walt Disney Pictures is currently negotiating with the government of Australia to receive a 30% incentive to shoot “a big budget feature” in the country.
THR suggests that the “big budget feature” in question is actually 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, but the »

Earlier today, we reported that Disney's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo is gearing up to start production in Australia in 2015, but now we have a conflicting report from Inside Film that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is the project Disney is seeking tax credits for.
Back in June, producer Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that production will likely start in early 2015, and Disney announced last month that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be released on July 7, 2017.
Here's what a spokesperson for the Ministry of Arts had to say in a statement to Inside Film, although they wouldn't confirm any specific productions.
"The Government is currently in discussions with Disney on possible productions it may wish to film in Australia. These discussions are commercial in confidence."
Of course, it's possible that Disney is negotiating with the Australian government for both Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales »
Brooklyn-based distributor Factory 25 has acquired North American rights to Hellaware, writer-director Michael M. Bilandic’s indie satire about a wannabe photographer caught in the lowbrow-highbrow collision between the NYC art gallery scene and the grimy rapcore world of Juggalo culture. Keith Poulson stars as Nate, whose coked-up YouTube search leads him to a music video by Insane Clown Posse knockoff the Young Torture Killers. The fictional band drew free publicity for the film when online viewers took a controversial music video from the movie for the real thing. Factory 25 will open the film in NYC on September 26 and digitally on September 23.
DigiNext has pacted directly with indie shingle Vision Vehicle Productions for worldwide rights to two features from the label co-founded by actor Malcolm Goodwin (American Gangster, Leatherheads, Breakout Kings, iZombie).

A trio of street artists are claiming that the Terry Gilliam directed The Zero Theorem has copied a mural they did in Buenos Aires and they’ve taken legal action to stop the upcoming release of the sci-fi pic. “In violation of U.S. and international law, Defendants—a crew of longstanding Hollywood ‘insiders’ led by repeat infringer Terry Gilliam—have blatantly and intentionally infringed, and are continuing to infringe, Plaintiffs’ intellectual property in the Copyrighted Artwork, by copying the work and using it in connection with the promotion and distribution of Defendants’ motion picture film, The Zero Theorem, which has already been released in foreign countries and is due to be released in the U.S. in a few weeks’ time,” says the highly illustrated jury trial demanding filing (read it here).

Three street artists of some renown have filed a lawsuit over Terry Gilliam's forthcoming film, The Zero Theorem, starring Matt Damon and Christoph Waltz. In a complaint filed on Wednesday in Illinois federal court, Argentineans "Jaz" (Franco Fasoli) and "Ever" (Nicolas Escalada) as well as Canadian "Troy Lovegates, aka Other" (Derek Mehaffey) allege that the movie — about a computer hacker in search of meaning — violates the copyright they hold on a large-scale mural titled Castillo on public display in Buenos Aires. Actors can chew scenery, but sometimes, the scenery chews back. In this case, the plaintiffs, who

Last year, Jason Sudekis (Horrible Bosses) brought us a skit that featured him as an American football (or soccer) coach who was hired to manage Tottenham Hotspur. Since he was let go from duty (after just six and a half hours), he now finds himself working at NBC as a pundit.
Still inept as ever, watch as Ted Lasso as he doesn’t understand live TV, struggle with time differences and run into someone how looks an awful lot like Everton and USA keeper Tim Howard.
Watch the video below:
Jason Sudekis will return to cinema screens later this year with Horrible Bosses 2 alongside returning cast members Charlie Day (The Lego Movie), Jason Bateman (Arrested Development), Jennifer Aniston (We’re The Millers), Kevin Spacey (Superman Returns) and newcomers Chris Pine (Star Trek Into Darkness) and Christoph Waltz (Muppets Most Wanted).

Warner Bros. released a new photo from Horrible Bosses 2 giving us our first look at Christoph Waltz in the film. In the image he's having a little chat with Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis on a golf course. Chris Pine, who plays Waltz's douchebag son, is standing behind him.
Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick (Bateman), Dale (Day) and Kurt (Sudeikis) decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business. But a slick investor soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor's adult son and ransom him to regain control of their company.
In case you missed the funny teaser trailer for the film, click here. The movie is set to be released on November 26th, and it looks like it's going to be hilarious. »

Warner Bros. has released their Fall 2014 Preview, which includes new photos from Dolphin Tale 2, This Is Where I Leave You, Annabelle, The Good Lie, Horrible Bosses 2 and The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies.

Several years have passed since young Sawyer Nelson (Nathan Gamble) and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium (Cma), headed by Dr. Clay Haskett (Harry Connick Jr.), rescued Winter, »
For a little while, it was up in the air so whether or not Christoph Waltz would have a role in the comedy sequel Horrible Bosses 2. But the actor was confirmed for a role in the film last fall, even though he didn't pop up in the teaser trailer back in July. But now, we finally get a good look at Waltz in the film as he chats with Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis on a golf course, with Chris Pine right behind him as his douchebag son. The dejected look on Bateman's face indicates this might be when the trio learn that Waltz is screwing over their new business venture, prompting their kidnapping of his son. Look! Here's our first look at Christoph Waltz in Sean Anders' Horrible Bosses 2 from Warner Bros. Pictures: And make sure you watch the first teaser trailer for Horrible Bosses 2 right here. »

The incomparable Terry Gilliam is 73 years old and shows no signs of slowing down. His latest film, “The Zero Theorem” starring Christoph Waltz, is in the can and comes out soon (read our festival review here), a passion project is in the works and the filmmaker even has an autobiography on the way. “It’s done, it’s being heavily designed right now. To make it more irritating, the [publishers] decided to put it out next year,” the filmmaker told The Playlist in a recent interview, laughing about his upcoming tome. “I did it by interviews essentially. My daughter was clever, kind of like a Rorschach test, she assembled a lot of pictures and artwork about my past and that would be transcribed and tidied up.” “When I first read it, I did not like me,” he chuckled. “Because I kept talking about me the whole time. I thought, ‘that’s a bit selfish, »

Tim Burton has been hit or miss lately, let’s be honest. “Frankenweenie” was probably his best film in recent years, and even that one had an unsatisfying, forced ending. But perhaps “Big Eyes,” Burton’s latest entry in the biopic genre, will bring him back to form. The film stars Amy Adams as mid-century artist Margaret Keane and Christoph Waltz as her husband, Walter. USA Today posted the exclusive images, featuring Adams at an easel painting one of Keane’s famous big-eyed girls and another with Adams and Waltz seemingly arguing over another one of her paintings. As CinemaBlend states, Walter gets the credit for Margaret’s portraits. “Margaret really believed that as [ Read More ]
Today we have the first photos from the upcoming "Big Eyes," which stars Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained), and is directed by Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Check everything out below. The story focuses on Margaret (Adams) and Walter Keane (Waltz), a pair of artists who popularized mass-produced paintings in the 1950s and 1960s that featured portraits of small children with big, sad eyes. Walter was said to be the painter, but it was later revealed that Margaret did the paintings. Margaret sued to get her share of the profits that resulted in a 1986 case in which a judge forced the couple to a "paint off" in federal court. The new movie is set to hit theaters on Christmas.

A few thoughts I had... uncensored as they come to me.
• This might easily fall into the stock "supportive wife" role syndrome (not that Oscar will mind. But we might) even if it is from her perspective?
• Is Eddie Redmayne the best-looking gawky nerdstar ever? There's something about him that shouldn't really work as a leading man onscreen and yet he sure does... work it. You know?
• ♥ Marius
• I'm glad this isn't named after the book... people might be expecting a sci-fi time »
