Wow, Oblivion With Tom Cruise Looks Pretty Good

8 December 2012 8:26 PM, PST

Universal Pictures has debuted the trailer for director Joseph Kosinski's Oblivion and you can watch it inside.  Kosinski, you may recall, last directed Tron: Legacy, and this trailer for his latest effort has me very interested in seeing it.

Hitting IMAX theaters on April 12 and conventional theaters on April 19th, the film stars Tom Cruise, Olga Kurylenko, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Melissa Leo.

In Oblivion, on a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man's confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind. Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack's mission is nearly complete.

Death Becomes Her Up for a Remake...On TV

7 December 2012 1:06 PM, PST

The 1992 macabre comedy Death Becomes Her made waves for its visual FX.  I remember seeing endless specials and articles analyzing how they put a giant hole through Goldie Hawn and twisted Meryl Streep's neck.  It was cool at the time.  And, seeing the film, I thought it was tantamount to a big screen, unofficial Tales from the Crypt film (after all, it did have some of the people responsible for that HBO series involved in the movie).

Death Becomes Her is now on the remake slab, but in an unlikely place.  According to Variety, Bravo is developing an hour-long series with Robert Zemeckis, Death's director, on board as an executive producer.

Two new photos from Texas Chainsaw 3D have been released giving us a better look at stars Alexandra Daddario and Tania Raymonde.

Daddario plays a young woman named Heather who learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had.  After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion’s dank cellars.

In our interview with Daddario a few months ago, she told us Heather "has a great evolution through the film.  It's fun because you get to see the change in her and see her become - as she learns more about what's going on in the story - a different person."  Head inside for the images »

For Del Toro, Which Comes First: Crimson Peak or Pacific Rim 2?

6 December 2012 12:25 PM, PST

Pacific Rim doesn't open until July 12, 2013, but Guillermo del Toro's attention in the director's seat following the release is already in demand.  The haunted house/ghost story Crimson Peak seemed like a priority, that is until Legendary announced Del Toro and Travis Beacham are already in development on a script for Pacific Rim 2.  If Pacific Rim becomes the blockbuster summer movie everyone hopes it becomes, I can totally see Legendary putting the sequel on the fast track, pushing Crimson Peak aside.

Stephen King's 11/22/63 Loses Its Writer & Director

6 December 2012 7:12 AM, PST

Shortly before Stephen King's 11/22/63 was published last year, The Silence of the Lambs' Jonathan Demme secured the rights to the tale to produce, write and direct a screen adaptation.  Now it appears Demme is no longer involved.

He told The Playlist recently that the project is "off the table" after he could not see eye to eye with King regarding what the film should be.  "This is a big book, with lots in it. And I loved certain parts of the book for the film more than Stephen did. We're friends, and I had a lot of fun working on the script, but we were too apart on what we felt should be and what be should be out of the script," he told the site.

Casey Affleck Eyes Boston Strangler Project

6 December 2012 4:15 AM, PST

Casey Affleck has set his sights on a famous serial killer case with a script called Boston Strangler, Deadline reports.

He'll executive produce and likely star as a detective investigating a series of murders that, to this day, are not wholly solved.

Chuck Maclean has been tasked with adapting the true story of the year-and-a-half long serial murders that claimed more than a dozen women's lives in Boston in the early 1960s. A man, Albert DeSalvo, was later arrested and confessed to the crimes although there's significant doubt as to whether or not he was the only party involved.
