'To Tell The Truth' is Coming Back: 5 Classic Liar Clips

29 July 2014 6:04 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"To Tell the Truth," one of the greatest television game shows with a timeless conceit, is purportedly coming back to air. Fremantle is heading up a new primetime version of the series that puts "an update of the familiar format with a surprising new twist that adds action and suspense and raises the stakes." I'm all for it! "To Tell the Truth" is -- with the possible exception of "What's My Line?" -- the best panel game in TV history: Four celebrities interrogate three contestants who all claim to be the same person, and then the celebrities vote on which candidate is telling the truth. It's the show that's most responsible for putting Kitty Carlisle and Peggy Cass into our cultural lexicon, and it's what Eminem is referencing when he famously asked, "Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?" Gordon Elliott and Alex Trebek hosted an early '90s version, »

Listen to Brad Paisley's New Song 'Crushin' It'

28 July 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Did you miss Brad Paisley's "rogue" publicity stunt on Twitter this weekend - where he posted a clip previewing his upcoming album Moonshine In the Trunk, due Aug. 25, purportedly without his label's permission? Well, have no fear - People Country has the exclusive first (err, second?) listen of "Crushin' It," his possible next single, right here. So has the singer, not particularly known for causing trouble, been drinking some of that moonshine in his trunk? Sony Music Nashville might think so. "I'm going rogue. The label doesn't know I'm doing this. Seriously. But I made a Moonshine preview teaser. »

Disney Gives Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 a Release Date

23 July 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Disney has announced that they will be releasing Pirates of the Caribbean 5 in theaters on July 7th, 2017. We previously heard that that the sub-title of this movie is "Dead Men Tell No Tales," but that wasn't confirmed in the press release that was set out. 

The script for the film comes from Catch Me If You Can scribe Jeff Nathanson, and it's set to be directed by Kon-Tiki's Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg. The fact that those two guys are directing gets me excited for this film. They are a couple of insanely talented directors, and I think they have the potential to give audiences the best Pirates of the Caribbean film yet.

Of course Johnny Depp will be back to reprise his role because the studio wouldn't make a Pirates movie without him.  »

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 set for July 2017

23 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having originally been set for release next year – before script and budgetary concerns forced a delay, Walt Disney Pictures has now set a release date of July 17th for the fifth instalment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

Pirates of the Caribbean 5  – which at one point was using the subtitle Dead Men Tell No Tales – will see Johnny Depp returning for another adventure as Captain Jack Sparrow, with Kon-Tiki directors Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg succeeding Gore Verbinski and Rob Marshall and Jeff Nathanson (Catch Me If You Can) tackling the screenplay.

Are you happy that Disney has finally set a date for Pirates 5, or should the franchise have walked the plank after On Stranger Tides?

Nancy Spielberg preps air force feature

17 July 2014 3:20 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Nancy Spielberg, sister of Steven, is developing a feature about World War II pilots inspired by documentary Above And Beyond: The Birth Of The Israeli Air-Force.

Nancy Spielberg is readying a feature about World War II pilots who volunteered to fight for Israel in the War of Independence.

The feature is inspired by the producer’s documentary Above and Beyond: The Birth of the Israeli Air-Force, directed by Roberta Grossman, which screens this week at the Jerusalem Film Festival.

“I’ve just started talking to people about making the documentary into a [fictional feature] film,” the producer told Screen. “It would make a great feature. This may sound Spielbergian but I see it as a combination of Catch Me If You Can, Indiana Jones and Saving Private Ryan. It has adventure, heart, sex, everything – it’s very universal.”

Brother Steven could be in the frame as a potential collaborator on the feature: “Steven will get his shot just »

The collateral damage of Tom Hanks movies

14 July 2014 11:38 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

To get to a happy ending in a Tom Hanks movie, an innocent character has to pay the price. Here's the proof...


With the best part of $10bn banked for his movies across his career, Tom Hanks remains one of the biggest and most interesting movie stars on the planet. His most recent performance in Captain Phillips, for instance, was comfortably one of his best. And looking back on Hanks’ career, the path of increased boldness and range is easy to chart.

Furthermore, he’s achieved his successes without public meltdowns, without signs of turning into a diva, and without putting us through many poor films at all. The man is a hero.

Well, to everyone but certain characters in his movies. For, on rewatching Big, we became aware of an alarming trend: that there tends to be a character in a Tom Hanks movie whose role is to »

20 June 2014 5:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox has joined DreamWorks to co-finance Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg’s Cold War spy thriller.

Fox will also distribute the film internationally. The film will start shooting in September.

Disney and DreamWorks announced earlier this week that the U.S. release has been set for Oct. 16, 2015.

The Coens, who won screenwriting Oscars for “Fargo” and “No Country for Old Men,” are revising Matt Charman’s script.

Release dates for Spielberg's new films confirmed

16 June 2014 10:42 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Bfg and Steven Spielberg's thus far untitled Cold War spy thriller now have release dates...


Ever since he directed Jurassic Park and Schindler's List back to back, Steven Spielberg has had periods where he's directed films in clumps. Most notably, he did The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Amistad and Saving Private Ryan pretty much back to back, pocketing an Oscar for the last of those three.

A few years later, he then went from A.I. to Minority Report to Catch Me If You Can, and in 2005 from War Of The Worlds to Munich. More recently, he shot War Horse and Lincoln without too much of a gap between them.

Now? He's set up a new pair of projects, and he's diving straight in, one after the other. The first is his thus-far untitled Cold War thriller, which is set to reunite him with Tom Hanks. The Coen brothers have penned the screenplay. »
