There were some big surprises at the box office last week as the new romantic comedy Life as We Know It, which was supposed to debut at the top of the charts only took second place. Instead, David Fincher's The Social Network held strong and took the number one spot for a second week in a row. But this weekend the "Facebook Movie" had a tough time retaining its top position against two highly anticipated new movies, Red starring Bruce Willis, which is based on the popular comic book and Jackass 3D, the final film in the big screen trilogy based on the groundbreaking MTV reality series. »

Last weekend, most Hollywood insiders predicted that Katherine Heigl's new romantic comedy Life as We Know It would take the top spot at the box office. But the movie came up short and failed to find as large an audience as was expected. While David Fincher's The Social Network held the number one spot for the second week in a row. The "Facebook Movie" will have stiff competition this weekend from two highly anticipated new movies, Red starring Bruce Willis, which is based on the popular comic book and Jackass 3D, the final film in the big screen trilogy based on the groundbreaking MTV reality series. »

While David Fincher's The Social Network took the top spot at the box office last weekend as predicted, the big surprise was that Cloverfield director Matt Reeves's much-talked-about new film, Let Me In, didn't even crack the top five and only earned about $5.3 million in its debut. This weekend three new films have entered the box office race all trying for that coveted number one position. The new crop of movies include, the romantic comedy Life as We Know It starring Katherine Heigl, the Disney film Secretariat and the Wes Craven movie My Soul to Take.

We'll never know if director George Miller had found the formula for awesomeness with superhero ensemble Justice League Mortal (Jlm).
The £220million team-up project - an adaptation of DC's Justice League of America comic books - was scrapped in April 2008 after a catalogue of production troubles and it seems Warner Bros and DC have given up on the idea.
What remains is debate and curiosity over whether Miller had put together an epic success or an embarrassing genre-killer.
Miller is a respected filmmaker, with such ventures under his belt as the Mad Max series, The Witches of Eastwick, Oscar-winning Happy Feet and its sequel and the Babe films (he wrote/produced both and also directed the second).

There were some big surprises at the box office last week as Zack Snyder's Legend of The Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole fell short of its predicted number one debut and was upset by the return of Michael Douglas's Gordon Gekko in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. But with three new movies entering the box office race this week including the Oscar-worthy film The Social Network and the highly anticipated horror flicks Let Me In and Case 39, Mr. Gekko definitely had some trouble trying to stay on top of the charts for a second week in a row.

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of legendary Hollywood filmmaker Steven Spielberg in the third of a five part feature... read parts one and two.
In the screenplay Night Skies drafted by American filmmaker John Sayles (Passion Fish), a violent space creature has the ability to kill with a touch of its boney finger. One of the alien visitors befriends a farm boy and gets accidentally left behind. When director Steven Spielberg decided to lighten the tone of the story, Sayles left the project and the writing responsibilities fell to Melissa Mathison (Kundun). The end result was E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982) with the hostiles being the human scientists seeking to capture the benevolent title character that possesses an endearing child-like curiosity. Featuring a family with an absentee father, Spielberg has readily admitted that the tale provided him with the means to address an emotionally painful event from his teenage years. “My parents »
Photo: Warner Bros. When I heard George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road was going into production last year, I wasn't sure how I felt about it. Especially now that it will be rebooted with recent Inception co-star Tom Hardy in the lead. I know one thing, I wasn't upset when I heard last week the film was pushed back to next year.
My indecision concerning the film isn't because the original Mad Max was a perfect film. It was a strange little Aussie flick that flew under the radar when it came out. I first heard about it in a rock club in Seattle in the early '80s only because a local band wrote a song about it. At the time I'd never even seen the film.
I can remember where I was when I first saw the The Road Warrior, however. My »

Earlier this week, news surfaced that George Miller’s planned revival of the Mad Max cinematic saga was set to take in two films rather than the originally-announced one. The one that was known about, Mad Max: Fury Road, had been set to start shooting in November this year, but a report in The Australian has suggested that cast and crew have been told it’s been pushed back until February 2011 instead.
Given that no release date was announced for the project, it’s not as if there’s a razor-tight deadline for George Miller to hit. And the cited reason for the delay – which hasn’t been officially confirmed – is that the plan to make two films back-to-back has caused some scripting and casting problems »
Hip-hop got its start in the economic warzone of the South Bronx in the 70’s and 80’s, where from absolutely nothing, a creative and vital musical source grew. White Lines & the Fever: The Death of DJ Junebug, directed by Travis Senger, is an incredible story not only about a forgotten musician who was taken too soon, but how hip-hop came from its roots to became a multi-million dollar industry. - This year at the Tribeca Film Festival showcases short films in six different "thematic" programs. Wishful Thinking is a package dominated by characters making hard decisions, while Between the Lines examines subject matter that isn’t always what it seems at first. The package Flashback, made up of six documentary shorts, explore politics, music, race, and popular culture, and give a fascinating diversity in telling these stories. I’ve selected the best in my opinion that you should look out for, »
This year at the Tribeca Film Festival showcases short films in six different "thematic" programs. Wishful Thinking is a package dominated by characters making hard decisions, while Between the Lines examines subject matter that isn’t always what it seems at first. The package Flashback, made up of six documentary shorts, explore politics, music, race, and popular culture, and give a fascinating diversity in telling these stories. I’ve selected the best in my opinion that you should look out for, should you ever come across the film or its directors. James Cromwell is best known as an actor, particularly from Babe and The Green Mile, but he has been a lifelong activist for human rights. In the 1960s, he provided a safe house for affiliates with the Black Panthers, risking the ire of the police and his own social standing as a young white man in dangerous times. A .45 at 50th, »

A quiet, unassuming Gold Coast commercial park may be the last place you'd expect to find an Academy Award, but there it is. Glinting in a glass cabinet, Oscar stares across the boardroom of John Cox's workshop behind Surfers Paradise. The golden statue (a legacy of Babe) keeps good company: assorted props from Nim's Island and Peter Pan, an alligator that tried to kill Rhada Mitchell in Rogue, Rhada Mitchell herself (in two sizes) plus a zebra from Racing Stripes. It's only a smattering of creatures that have been developed under his watch for TV, film, theme parks, galleries and advertisers alike. »
The "Captain America" movie hasn't found its hero just yet, but it's closing in on the man to play the villain.
"The Matrix" bad guy Hugo Weaving is in talks to play Cap's nemesis, Red Skull, in "Captain America: The First Avenger," the Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog reports. The deal isn't done yet, however, and is in a "delicate stage" for the next couple of days.
Weaving is not a bad guy to have in your franchise film: In addition to "The Matrix" trilogy, where he played Agent Smith, he played Elf king Elrond in "The Lord of the Rings" and provided the voice of Megatron in the two "Transformers" movies.
