'The Dark Knight Rises' will take place eight years post-'Dark Knight,' says Christopher Nolan

21 November 2011 11:30 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Hollywood franchises don’t really end anymore. If you look at the current list of 2011′s top 10 top-grossing films, eight are sequels/spin-offs/prequels that were specifically designed to create more sequels/spin-offs/prequels. (Heck, four of the movies — Thor, Captain America, Fast Five, and Rise of the Planet of the Apes — all included teasers for the next installment in their freaking end credits.) The highest-grossing movie of the year is Harry Potter 7 — Part 2, the eighth film in a franchise based on seven books. The only non-franchise film is Bridesmaids, a movie that will soon be pushed aside by Twilight 4 »

The Wachowskis return to sci-fi with "Jupiter Ascending"

20 October 2011 1:35 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

The Wachowskis are returning to the sci-fi genre almost a decade after the last "Matrix" movie hit theaters. Deadline is reporting that Lana and Andy Wachowski have a new film called "Jupiter Ascending" that they're setting up with Warner Bros and will be their next film after "Cloud Atlas" wraps. Talks have already begun to figure out which A-list star will lead the flick, though the premise for the movie is being kept tightly under wraps.

Like "The Matrix" trilogy, "Jupiter Ascending" will be an original property created by the Wachowski siblings. It will be the first original project they've put in front of the camera since "The Matrix Revolutions" premiered in 2003. The only other film the duo has directed since was 2008's flashy adaptation of "Speed Racer."

They are currently filming segments of the upcoming adaptation of "Cloud Atlas." The ensemble flick stars actors like Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Jim Sturgess. »

The Return of the Wachowskis

20 October 2011 1:00 PM, PDT | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Word has surfaced that the Wachowskis, the team behind big-budget flops like the Matrix sequels and Speed Racer, are being allowed to make more super-expensive science fiction epics. I know Hollywood loves second chances...but seriously, Hollywood? Have you been drinking?

Andy and Larry (who is now Lana) Wachowski blew onto the scene back in the mid-1990s as geeky genre specialists. After co-writing Sly Stallone's action bomb Assassins, they wrote and directed the tantalizing Bound, a wonderful neo-noir thriller starring Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly.

Then came The Matrix, a still-astonishing flick the Wachowskis followed with two sequels that were progressively worse — The Matrix Reloaded was a letdown, but The Matrix Revolutions was dreadful. It looked pretty bad for the Wachowskis after that. But then came Speed Racer.

To be fair, Speed Racer had a volatile history. It spent more than a decade in development hell before the Wachowskis were attached to it, »

The Wachowski Siblings Return to Action Sci-Fi with Jupiter Ascending; Filming Begins Spring 2012

20 October 2011 9:55 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Andy and Lana Wachowski are currently at work adaptation David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas plus they've got their mysterious Cobalt Neural 9, an uninspiring new take on Robin Hood, and now it looks like they're going back to the action-sci realm.  According to Deadline, Warner Bros. has picked up the siblings' original script Jupiter Ascending and put it on the fast track for a spring start date.  The studios is reportedly looking for an A-list star to lead the film and, to the surprise of no one, the script and logline are being kept under tight wraps.  It will be another (most likely expensive) film in the pipeline for Warner Bros., which is also putting adaptations of Akira and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. in front of cameras next Spring. Deadline also reports that Cobalt Neural 9, a hard-r drama that centered on a homosexual relationship between an American soldier and Iraqi citizen, »

The 12 most evil movie laughs of all time (with video)

17 October 2011 3:15 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

"Mua-ha-ha-ha-ha!" It's harder to do than it seems, which makes having a decent Evil Laugh one of the most underrated skills that an actor (or inanimate object, at that) can have. We're not interested in just "decent," though -- we want the best, and here they are, for your moustache-twirling amusement.

[#12-7]   [#6-1]

12. Count Olaf (Jim Carrey) in "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events"

If at first you don't succeed at an evil laugh, try, try again. Count Olaf (Jim Carrey) demonstrates how practice makes perfect, experimenting with a few variations before ultimately deciding on the one evil laugh he can truly call his own. The criminally underrated "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events" actually features one of our favorite Jim Carrey performances -- Olaf is a delightful ghoul who gleefully conjures a series of macabre methods by which to kill a bunch of orphans and thereby claim their family fortune as his own. »

Happy Birthday, Jada Pinkett Smith!

18 September 2011 7:06 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Jada Pinkett Smith celebrates a big birthday on Sunday - she turns the big 4-0!

The Maryland native has been a Hollywood fixture since her marriage to actor/rapper Will Smith in 1997, but she is an accomplished actress, singer and all-round multi-talented star in her own right.

She has had leading roles in films like The Nutty Professor, Collateral, The Matrix Reloaded and Madagascar, and served double duty by starring and executive producing her TV medical series Hawthorne, until it was axed earlier this month after three seasons on air.

Pinkett Smith manages to juggle her own busy career with her responsibilities as a wife and mother of the couple's two children, Jaden, 13, and Willow, 10, who are also making their mark in music and film.

But the birthday girl is sure to be the centre of attention in the Smith household this weekend (17-18Sep11) as she celebrates the age milestone, and WENN would like to wish her Happy Birthday with 10 fascinating facts about the woman born Jada Koren Pinkett.

- She was named after her mother Adrienne's favourite soap opera actress, Jada Rowland.

- The actress met her husband Will Smith in 1990 after auditioning for a role as his onscreen girlfriend in TV comedy The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. She didn't get the role because at only five feet (1.52 metres) tall, she was considered too short - and it instead went to Nia Long.

- When she is not working in Hollywood, she is rocking out as the frontwoman of the band Wicked Wisdom, which she founded in 2002.

- Pinkett Smith became a close friend of rap icon Tupac Shakur after meeting him at the Baltimore School for the Arts, where they were both students.

- She was crowned Miss Maryland in a beauty pageant in 1988.

- She starred in The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions as human rebel Niobe, a character written specifically for her by the Wachowski Brothers.

- She is a spokesmodel and one of several celebrity investors in beauty product brand Carol's Daughter.

- Pinkett Smith turned to her mother, a nurse, for advice while starring as Chief Nursing Officer Christina Hawthorne in the TV medical drama Hawthorne to ensure the hospital scenes were as realistic as possible.

- She tried her hand at clothing design in 1994 when she launched her own women's fashion label, Maja.

- The superstar couple is big on charity - in 2001, it established the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation, an organisation focusing on education and inner-city family welfare. »

The Midi-Chlorian Ruination Scale and the summer movie season

24 August 2011 1:00 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Movies are fixed (for the most part) but our opinions of them are fluid. You might see a movie and hate it, then see it again five years later and love it. Maybe your tastes changed, maybe the context changed, but for whatever reason the exact same movie generated two wildly different reactions. One common factor in these divergent opinions are sequels: a great sequel casts a rosy light on a predecessor (think "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight") while a crummy sequel retroactively diminishes our feelings about the original (think "The Matrix" and "The Matrix Revolutions").

To measure the impact of sequels on their franchises and our opinions of them, Nick Fortugno created the clever Midi-Chlorian Ruination Scale. It's an effective way to pinpoint the degree to which one film reflects positively or negatively on the rest of a series. It's named, of course, for the "Star Wars" prequels, »

Indie Corner - Trailer for supernatural thriller Comforting Skin

23 August 2011 2:06 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The feature debut from writer-director-producer Derek Franson, Comforting Skin is a supernatural thriller about a lonely young woman whose desperate need for emotional and sexual companionship draws her into a surreal and ultimately destructive relationship with a shifting and whispering tattoo she has willed to life on her skin.

Having shot the film last spring on a budget of $250,000, producers Franson, Justin James and Andrew Webster are now in the final days of completing the film, with just a few effects shots left to complete. The slithering, shifting tattoo character was brought to life through the use of digital animation and compositing techniques, requiring custom code developed by VFX Supervisor Ollie Rankin (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Matrix Revolutions, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Watchmen, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Red Dawn, J. Edgar).

The film stars Victoria Bidewell (Avpr: Aliens vs Predator - Requiem »

After Hollywood: the rise of the international box office

11 August 2011 1:41 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

In the first of a new series analysing the cinematic scene around the globe, Phil Hoad looks back to 2004, the year that Hollywood's supremacy faltered

To begin, a salute: try and name a new column about the era beyond Hollywood, and you end up including "Hollywood" in the title anyway. The Dream Factory has towered over cinema for so long – seven decades of cultural dominance – it's easy to assume it always will. But its jazzy reign over the mainstream has become strained, and the frontiers of commercial film-making are unrolling beyond Los Angeles; 2004 was the year when the future came into focus, Blu-Ray sharp.

There never used to be such a thing as "international box office": there was just the Us domestic market, and everywhere else; or Hollywood, and that dismissive catch-all, "world cinema".

Worst Movies Ever – The 00′s Edition

10 August 2011 12:35 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

If you've been following me for any length of time, you probably know that I'm not a fan of lists. The best of the year lists are something of a mandatory enterprise at this point, and I have several other efforts at best of something lists (mostly as a result of dares), but I don't like them. They don't make a lot of sense, especially where numbering is concerned, and they don't actually deliver any great value. Of course, they do deliver in the one sense that they are a good way to get a feel for a critic's tastes, but beyond that, they are a kind of industry in-group nonsense.

Worst lists, are even worse. They also have more baggage built into them. For one thing, to be included in the list, you have to admit you've watched the thing. Thus, there are clearly worse movies than any on this list, »

Genuinely terrible movie taglines

12 July 2011 6:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A good movie tagline can, at the very least, help in the promotion of a film. But what about when it goes wrong? Er

The art of the movie tagline is a tricky one that generally involves locking clever people into a room until they come up with something catchy. Yet, sometimes the coffee machine isn't working. Everyone is in a bad mood. There's no Toby Ziegler figure to come in and solve everything.

And that's when you end up with this collection of oddities. Here, we're looking at taglines that just do little to sell the film. In all truth, we quite like some of the ones we're about to show you (Hombre is a corker). But do they do their job? Er, not really.

Without further ado...

Earthquake

This Charlton Heston-headlined 1974 disaster movie was, in fairness, released at a point where poster taglines were just a little bit minimal. »

Harry Lennix Joins Superman: Man Of Steel

11 July 2011 7:19 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Actor Harry Lennix is known for his role as Commander Lock in The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. He was also Boyd Langton in Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse. The super news is that the actor has now been cast in Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel.

The new Lennix character is described as a “high-ranking” military type by the name of General Swanwick according to the Variety exclusive. I wonder what Superman will be involved in that calls the attention of the military.

The DC Comics reboot comes from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures and is scheduled for a December 2012 release. Also on the cast are the new man of steel himself, Henry Cavill, and Amy Adams as Lois Lane. I’m a big fan of Amy’s. If you had told me a year ago she would be the tough investigative Daily Planet reporter, I would have laughed, »

Have The Wachowskis Started Developing Another New Project, Called Jupiter Rising?

27 June 2011 5:25 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Setting aside the Matrix trilogy, which was really just two films pumped out at a quick speed to capitalize on the 1999 hit, the Wachowski siblings have generally taken their time getting their next projects out in the world. Speed Racer hit theaters in 2008, five years after The Matrix Revolutions, and only now are Andy and Lana Wachowski ready to start shooting their next film, an ambitious adaptation of the novel Cloud Atlas that they're directing alongside Tom Tykwer. But once Cloud Atlas is done, the Wachowskis could actually be ready to move on to a new project, which is pretty much lightning speed for the deliberative siblings. http://twitchfilm.com/news/2011/06/breaking-the-wachowskis-jupiter-rising-on-the-move.php>Twitchfilm reports from some unnamed sources that the Wachowskis are already prepping something called Jupiter Rising, which would be their next project. Of course we don't know anything about it-- the Wachowskis do love keeping things under »

Russell Crowe to play Jor-El in Man of Steel

15 June 2011 11:44 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder has chosen to follow the Richard Donner route of casting an Academy Award-winning actor to portray Jor-El in his upcoming Superman reboot. Variety has confirmed today that Russell Crowe is in final talks to step into the role of Superman's Kryptonian father, last portrayed by screen icon Marlon Brando, with the Gladiator actor securing the part amid competition from the likes of Sean Penn and Clive Owen.

Crowe, who will next be seen later this year in director RZA's The Man with the Iron Fists, joins a growing cast that includes Henry Cavill as Clark Kent / Superman, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Ma and Pa Kent. Dark Horizons are also reporting that Crowe's Gladiator co-star Connie Nielsen has an offer to play Jor-El's wife, Lara, while Harry Lennix (The Matrix Revolutions, »
