Robin Williams has spent the better part of the past decade confusing the hell out of audiences with his movie choices – "Rv," anyone? – but it seems as though things may be on the upswing for the funnyman.
The actor may be injecting some fabulous back into his career in the not-too-distant future with a sequel to his 1996 hit "The Birdcage."
Williams tells Movie Hole that he may reprise his role as South Beach drag club owner Armand Goldman if the powers that be can work out a script. "They're trying to figure out which [story] to write for that," says Williams. "We will see what happens."
While the prospect of seeing Williams back in his gold chain and salmon pants has our hearts skipping a beat, we can't imagine the movie working without the original star-studded cast. If the producers can get Gene Hackman, Dianne Wiest, Dan Futterman, Calista Flockheart together »

Recent release Apollo 18 is a horror movie set on the Moon. Even if the whole basis of the film being leaked footage from a secret mission is bogus, the concept is brilliant.

Indeed, the Big Black beyond the stratosphere is anxiety-inducing as an infinite unknown with terrifying potential. As the Alien poster put it, “In space, no one can hear you scream” so the void is the perfect backdrop on which to build a sci-fi chiller.
With it being Earth’s nearest neighbour rather than a far-flung or fictional destination, the Moon feels more real and relevant, »

For musicians, it's 27; the mystical age at which the unlucky succumb to the consequences of their career-dictated lifestyle. For movie stars, it's more like 49. And for them, it's not heroin, or booze, or depression; it's family comedies. You want proof? This weekend you can witness Jim Carrey, esteemed star of The Truman Show and Dumb & Dumber, and six CGI penguins breakdancing all over the grave of his serious acting ambitions in Mr Popper's Penguins. Carrey turned 49 in January, and the film marks his ascension into a not-so-exclusive fellowship of once-intriguing actors who now make family comedies.
Trying to unravel the mysterious creature from the secretive J.J. Abrams’ “Super 8” trailer? Well, the folks at LatinoReview have a completely different theory and take from the trailer and viral footage on www.s8editingroom.com. And the answer is simply—it’s not an alien, monster or creature. It may be an energized living object similar to the 1997’s “Flubber” with Robin Williams. We’re not saying it is a rubber-like super-bouncy substance, but it is an object. What’s our evidence? The evidence was clear in front of us. We took some screen shots from the trailer and viral videos. So we’ll present our evidence and see if you’ll agree with us. Exhibit A In the first screen shot from a viral video, you can see the cube-like living object on a laboratory table. Exhibit B The two children (played by Joel Courtney and Elle Fanning »
