We look at the films that slipped through Hollywood's net, from biblical epics to a time travelling Gladiator sequel...
This article contains a spoiler for Gladiator.
If you're one of those frustrated over the quality of many of the blockbusters that make it to the inside of a multiplex, then ponder the following. For each of these were supposed to be major projects, that for one reason or another, stalled on their way to the big screen. Some still may make it. But for many others, the journey is over. Here are the big blockbusters that never were...
The late Michael Crichton scored another residential on the bestseller list with his impressive thriller, Airframe. It was published in 1996, just after films of Crichton works such as Jurassic Park, Rising Sun, Disclosure and the immortal Congo had proven to be hits of various sizes.
So: a hit book, another techno thriller, »
Thanks to The Wrap, we’ve got a first look photo of the cast for Ricky Gervais’ Netflix original movie Special Correspondents, which sees Gervais starring alongside Eric Bana (Deliver Us From Evil), Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel), Kelly Macdonald (Boardwalk Empire), Kevin Pollak (The Usual Suspects), America Ferrera (Ugly Betty), Raúl Castillo (Looking), Benjamin Bratt (Law & Order), Bill Lake (The Hurricane), Meghan Heffern (Chloe), Ari Cohen (Gangland Undercover) and Mimi Kuzyk (The Day After Tomorrow)…
Special Correspondents sees Bana as “a struggling New York-based radio journalist whose arrogance and decadent lifestyle has hindered his career. With his job on the line, he fakes front-line war reports from the comfort of his hideout above a Spanish restaurant in the heart of Manhattan.” It is set to land on Netflix some time next year.

In the next Mission: Impossible installment, Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg (Star Trek), and Jeremy Renner (The Avengers: Age of Ultron) are all wanted by the C.I.A. With the Imf disbanded and Ethan Hunt (Cruise) out of a job, the boys defy the C.I.A.’s head honcho (Alec Baldwin) and regroup to take down the Syndicate – an underground society of rogue agents that Pegg’s Benji very appropriately calls the “anti-imf.”
In the newest trailer for Rogue Nation, we get a sneak peek at what we an only guess are the film’s big action scenes, as Ethan Hunt jumps fifty-feet into a whirlpool without an oxygen tank and climbs the side of a 727 mid-flight.

Benicio Del Toro is a funny kind of movie star. He broke out thanks to his deeply weird, scene-stealing turn in "The Usual Suspects," and ever since has had the kind of career that's lived up to that performance — he's generally chosen to appear in offbeat movies. But just when you think you've got him pegged, he'll do something huge and mainstream like "The Wolf Man" or "Guardians Of The Galaxy," even if those movies are odder than the average blockbuster, and his idea of a prestige picture is a two-part biopic of Che Guevara. So it's rare that he gets to do the sort of thing that someone like George Clooney has built a career on: be funny, charming and a little romantic. "A Perfect Day" gives him that opportunity, arguably for the first time since "Excess Baggage," and it's fun to see the actor flex those muscles. Unfortunately, »

With production underway on X-Men: Apocalypse, a casting call for extras has landed online, which appears to give us our first plot synopsis for the Bryan Singer-directed superhero sequel. Oh, and it also “confirms” Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and Channing Tatum’s Gambit – although it should be noted that these casting calls are often mistaken and so we should probably wait until we hear something official from Fox before taking that as gospel…
X-Men: Apocalypse will follow the super powered mutants battling their most powerful foe yet, the devious and devastatingly dangerous Apocalypse. This legendary villain uses his incredible abilities to alter his physical form, access other mutant superpowers and telekinesis to recruit a cult-like group called the Four Horsemen to be his servants and do his bidding in an all out war against the X-Men.

[Editor's Note: This post is presented in partnership with Time Warner Cable Movies On Demand in support of Indie Film Month. Today's pick, "Misery Loves Comedy," is available now On Demand.] Some audiences know Kevin Pollak best as the actor from hit drams such as "A Few Good Man," "The Usual Suspects" and "Casino," while others remember the stand-up comedian and master impressionist who rose to fame on the 1980's comedy circuit. Regardless of how you see him, the 57-year-old actor is redefining his career once more by stepping into the director's chair for the very first time. In his debut documentary "Misery Loves Comedy," Pollak interviews some of the biggest names in comedy, including Jimmy Fallon, Amy Schumer, Larry David, Steve Coogan and Judd Apatow, in order to understand the relationship between a comedian and his/her deep desire to connect with audiences.

All week our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Click here for a complete list of our essays. When I picked this year, it was under the mistaken assumption that we were writing on the best film of a year, and not the best film year in general. But having realized the mistake, I stand by my choice. 1995 is still the best! Straight up: 1995 wins, because Todd Haynes’s “[Safe]" is still my favorite film to have come out since, Idk, I’ve been alive. It’s deeply self-conscious about genre, while still managing to not really resemble anything I’ve ever seen. It’s the perfect film about L.A.; about how space is mobilized in cinema; about the environment; about Gothic horror; about white femininity; about film bodies; about falling in love in the movies. It’s Todd Motherf*#@$^ Haynes’s best film. »

Alex Garland, screenwriter of “28 Days Later,” “Sunshine” and “Never Let Me Go,” makes an impressive directorial debut with cerebral sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina” (in theaters today), but Garland waves off the achievement of leaping to directing as “just next in a continuum.” “The truth was that there was no epiphany moment about directing, because I just don’t dignify the directing role the way we’re supposed to,” the British filmmaker told The Dissolve. “There are a few people — like Woody Allen, he’s an auteur, and I’m cool with that. But for me, directing is about collaboration.” Whether directing is a logical next step or a hard-sought achievement for screenwriters, it’s often done by telling studios, “Hey, here’s my next screenplay. You can have it as long as I get to direct.” Preston Sturges — at the time the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood — is noted for »

Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey is an eminent actor and a well-respected performer of his generation. He constantly puts in solid performances in any movie, television or theatrical projects he involves himself in and is a consummate professional. He recently picked up the Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series Drama award at this years Golden Globe ceremony in Los Angeles for his much praised role as the conniving Francis Underwood in Netflix Original series ‘House of Cards’. And with the third season of the award-winning series heading our way later this month we thought we’d take a look back at some of the best and most iconic movie roles the 55-year old actor has managed to accumulate over the years.
