We didn't mention this when it first hit, but apparently director Barry Levinson (Rain Man, Toys, Sphere, Bandits, etc) is currently working on a new sci-fi thriller that was originally called Isopod. The new title (via Prod Weekly) is just The Bay and ScreenDaily (via Styd) wrote an updated sales report, adding some plot details into the mix and info about who's producing, too. Apparently the team behind Paranormal Activity, including director Oren Peli and producers Jason Blum and Steven Schneider, will be helping produce The Bay. We're not sure when shooting is supposed to start, but we do know it's an eco-horror set in Maryland. The last time we had a big "eco-horror" movie was The Happening, and we all know how that turned out, so let's hope this is one is a lot better. The Bay is "culled from a collection of camera phone accounts, 911 calls and other »

Activision and the "Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock" team paced themselves publicizing the full set list of more than 90 tracks that's slated to appear in the game, but they've put it all out there as of this week, and before you even make it to Soundgarden's full "Telephantasm" album that's coming bundled in the first shipment of units, you'll have a long list of core game tunes to thrash through including The Hives' "Tick Tick Boom" and multiple Megadeth and Rush numbers.
"We engaged our fans to find out what they really wanted and then hand-picked over 90 tracks that deliver the ultimate rock experience," Guitar Hero vice president of music affairs Tim Riley said in a press release. "From the new guitar controller to the gameplay to the on-disc set list, 'Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock' is truly a return to rock."
Here's what you'll have to play over the »

Barry Levinson moves from one Jack to another. After completing You Don’t Know Jack — the HBO Dr. Jack Kevorkian biopic that received 15 Emmy nominations this morning — the legendary director will turn his sights to human rights activist Jack Healey.
Called Brother Jack, the biopic is a coming-of-age story about an idealist who leaves the priesthood for a life on the streets, and is credited with moving the topic of human rights into the public forum (which, in turn, inspired citizen action). Today, Healey heads the Human Rights Action Center in Washington D.C. He will produce the film with Mosaic. »

Russell Crowe's dynamic Robin Hood repels foreign invaders in this blood-soaked interpretation of the folk tale
Ten years ago, Ridley Scott retrieved the Roman imperial epic from the 36 years of neglect that followed the failure of Anthony Mann's The Fall of the Roman Empire. Recognising that what sank Mann's movie was its elegance, careful pacing and world-weary sophistication, Scott's Gladiator began with a ferocious pitched battle in Germania that established its hero, Maximus, as a courageous leader, followed by the death far from home of Emperor Marcus Aurelius and the anointing of a weak successor. Scott's reworking of the Robin Hood legend begins in a similar fashion with a succession of violent scenes: the exploitation of provincial landowners in 12th-century England and a bloody siege of a French town by Richard the Lionheart on his return from the Crusades.
The first scene establishes that all is not well »

We did this with Streisand last month and wasn't it a neat way to snapshot an entire career? For Cate Blanchett, currently "Maid Marion Loxley" in Robin Hood, this overview wasn't as simple. She works so frequently that it had to be narrowed down. This career overview is restricted to films wherein she has a leading role or practically dominates in a barely-not-leading supporting role.
Elizabeth the Golden Age (2007) | Benjamin Button (2008) | Robin Hood (2010)

1. Didn't you immediately miss Lord of the Rings (2001-2003) and The Talented Mr Ripley (1999) while looking at those? Kinda makes you wonder if she was meant to glitter from the ensemble rather than go for the floating head star vehicle »

When you slap the name “Robin Hood” on a movie, people will have certain expectations about what they’ll see. Bandits stealing from the rich, archery, men living in the forest, a greedy king, and his sniveling sheriff; all the elements that repeat time and time again in the classic Robin Hood story that has been retold in countless forms. With all the different iterations you have to wonder what new twists can they put on the story that will bring an audience back. How about forgoing all those other plot points altogether?
Where Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood begins will seem familiar enough. Most people know that Robin was returning from the crusades. What Scott changes are the conditions of his return. After King Richard (Danny Huston) is killed in the final castle assault on his way back to England, Robin (Russell Crowe) and his comrades decide to head »

There are three new clips from Robin Hood – the latest action-packed cinematic collaboration between Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe — now online, which feature explosions, Robin (Crowe) and his fellow bandits in action, and even a hint of foreplay between the rouge hero and the fair Lady Marian (Cate Blanchett).
First, MSN has the full version of a scene you’ll probably recognize from the official Robin Hood trailer. It features Robin and his merry men in action — kindly assisted by Friar Tuck (Mark Addy) wielding a crossbow in each hand — as they seemingly enjoy the task of holding up a group of treacherous soldiers passing through the misty woods of Sherwood.
