M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable celebrates its 15th anniversary later this year. While the director certainly has lost some fans in that time, after a string of bombs such as The Happening, The Last Airbender and After Earth, one actor in particular wants to turn Unbreakable into a trilogy, with M. Night Shyamalan back at the helm. Patton Oswalt revealed to Screen Junkies, that, while he's against making sequels just because a movie is successful, he thinks Unbreakable deserves a tirlogy.
"As much as I'm philosophically against just spitting out sequels because something is successful, I do firmly believe that M. Night Shyamalan's film Unbreakable not only deserves a sequel, it deserves a trilogy."
The actor then broke down his elaborate and detailed plan for two more sequels for Unbreakable.
"So, there are other Unbreakables in the world, and the second movie should be Bruce Willis embracing his hero status, »
A morally muddled mess that is convoluted in plot and appallingly simplistic in its themes. I am a sad geek today. I’m “biast” (pro): I’ve been a fan of Neill Blomkamp’s films
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
If a mashup of 80s robot flicks Short Circuit and RoboCop sounds like a bad joke, well: almost. Chappie is often risible, but it’s more sad than anything else. Not the good kind of sad: this is not a poignant or touching film, though it clearly hopes to be. No, Chappie makes me sad because the promise that South African filmmaker Neill Blomkamp displayed with his brilliant District 9 and which hung over his flawed but still daring followup Elysium is nowhere to be found here. Chappie is a morally muddled mess that is convoluted in plot and appallingly simplistic in its themes. »

Dev Patel has described the pressures of fame.
The 24-year-old first rose to prominence in the gritty Channel 4 series Skins and was propelled to international stardom following the success of his first movie, the Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire.
In an interview with Digital Spy, he explained: "It's a lot of hard work. Behind closed doors it's a lot of pressure and more than anything you've got to be sure you're not letting yourself down. I've got a crazy work ethic and I'm very tough on myself. It's difficult. It's a difficult position to be in, in a way. You're trying to tread new waters."
"Slumdog was wonderful and it came so quickly for someone who hasn't had any formal training. It kind of thrusts »
By taking home his second Razzie for Worst Director for "Transformers: Age of Extinction," action filmmaker Michael Bay now holds the distinction of being tied for the most "wins" in the category. He had previously prevailed in this category for the second instalment of the Transformers franchise, "Revenge of the Fallen" (2009). -Break- Only two other directors have taken home this dishonor on more than one occasion: John Derek prevailed first for "Bolero" (1984) and then for "Ghosts Can't Do It" (1990), which was the last film he directed before he passed in 1998. And M. Night Shyamalan was recognized for "Lady and the Water" (2006) and "The Last Airbender" (2010), 20 years after Derek had set the record in the category.

What amazing news to wake up to on a Tuesday morning – Spider-Man has come home to Marvel to be part of their cinematic universe. The world famous wall-crawler will start swinging through New York in 2017 for our third Spider-Man series in the last fifteen years.
According to a report from The Wrap, it looks as those Andrew Garfield has been ousted as Peter Parker, which was to be expected based on some of the emails from last December’s “Sony Hack”. Garfield was not keen on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and spoke about it negativity in public – not the wisest of moves there, sir.
So, with Garfield out and a new movie on the way – who could take on the role of the Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man?
There’s no official word on whether we’re going to be getting »

M. Night Shyamalan isn't exactly on anyone's must-see list in the wake of After Earth, The Last Airbender and The Happening, but that doesn't mean the man hasn't stayed busy. Right now he's doing work on the TV show Wayward Pines, and this September will see the return of his low-budget film affair in The Visit. However, the question of whether or not he would return to the world of Unbreakable still comes up, and it seems as though that's a »

This is it, folks. After 400(!) episodes, Ricky and Simon decided to wrap up the Sound on Sight podcast. To send it off in style, they take a look back at the very best films of 2014, with some help from a variety of former guest- and co-hosts. Smack dab in the middle, with the help of special guests Kate Rennebohm and Adam Nayman, they go deep on Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice, the biggest missing piece in their 2014 moviegoing. It’s a nearly three-hour blowout, because it didn’t seem right to go out small. Cheers!
The hourlong crime drama, which was ordered to series in September and began production Wednesday in Los Angeles, has added Allison Scagliotti (Syfy’s “Warehouse 13″), Salli Richardson-Whitfield (Syfy’s “Eureka,” “I Am Legend”) and Ritesh Rajan (“The Last Airbender”) to the main cast, rounded out by Emma Ishta (“Manhattan Love Story”) and Kyle Harris (“The Carrie Diaries”), who were in the original pilot.
“Stitchers” follows Kirsten (Ishta), a young woman who is recruited into a secret government agency to be “stitched” into the minds of the recently deceased, using their memories to investigate murders and help solve mysteries before they go to the grave.
Working alongside Kirsten is passionate neuroscientist Cameron (Harris); socially immature bioelectrical engineer and communications technician Linus (Rajan); Maggie (Richardson-Whitfield), who heads the covert program; and Kirsten’s roommate, »
