Directed by John Curran.
A young woman goes on a 1,700 mile trek across the deserts of West Australia with her four camels and faithful dog.
With its startling images and wonderful orange landscape, Tracks certainly is a beautiful looking piece of cinema. Capturing both the wonder and solitude of the Australian desert, the film follows young Australian Robyn Davidson (Mia Wasikowska), who decides to leave the norm of regular life behind to trek across the Australian desert, some 1,700 miles, in search of nothing but some peace and quiet. With just the clothes and resources on her back, and a group of camels, Robyn sets off on her journey.
While not doing anything wholly original, nor indeed “treading” new ground, Tracks brings a compelling story of one woman’s need for solitude and of trying to find herself. »

Johnny Depp has made quite a name for himself portraying larger-than-life characters over the years, ones like Edward Scissorhands, Willy Wonka, the Mad Hatter and, oh yeah, Captain Jack Sparrow. But his last two films, Disney’s The Lone Ranger and science fiction drama Transcendence, were pretty much universally panned by critics and barely managed to make back their production budget, leaving many fans wondering what would happen to Depp’s career.
Well, the actor’s next big film is this winter’s musical fantasy Into the Woods, where he’ll be playing the big bad wolf in what looks to be an intriguing adaptation of the popular Broadway show. Then of course there’s the sequel to Alice in Wonderland, recently titled Through the Looking Glass, releasing in 2016, and Pirates of ...

A famously restless actor, audiences have seen Johnny Depp take on a wide variety of roles in recent years, from Alice in Wonderland’s giddy Mad Hatter to Dark Shadows’ camp vampire and The Lone Ranger’s stoic sidekick. Now, the trailer for his latest project, Mortdecai, suggests that he’s finally found his calling: the upper-class English twit. Depp stars alongside Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Avengers: Age of Ultron’s Paul Bettany in the comedy, playing Charlie Mortdecai, a “debonair art dealer and part-time rogue” that gets caught up in a quest to recover a stolen painting that may contain

Johnny Depp evidently does what he pleases in between “Pirates Of The Caribbean” movies and installments of his newly-minted “Alice In Wonderland” franchise. So no matter how many chinks in his armor he's sustained via flops like “Transcendence,” “Dark Shadows," "The Rum Diary" and the now infamous “The Lone Ranger,” he always has his fallback cash-cows. One gets the impression that he considers poorly performing films as someone else’s problem: Depp appears in films that interest him and that’s that. His latest whimsy? Depp will star in “Mortdecai,” a James Bond-esque spy comedy revolving around a dapper idiot. Here’s the official synopsis: Juggling some angry Russians, the British MI5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen »

Cowabunga, dude: Raphael, Leonardo, Michaelangelo and Donatello are coming back for another round. After scoring a surprisingly potent $65 million at the box office this weekend, Paramount has announced development on a sequel to Michael Bay's "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" reboot, with a release date set for June 3, 2016. Along with Bay, who will reprise his role as producer, Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec are returning to write the script. It's not yet clear whether original director Jonathan Liebsman will return at the helm, however. As noted by Deadline, the sequel's release date will (at this point, anyway) pit it against the Seth Rogen-Jonah Hill animated comedy "Sausage Party," as well as the second weekends of both Disney's recently-announced "Alice in Wonderland" followup and Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Apocalypse." "Launching a new take on the Turtles into the feature film world was a daunting task because as fans of them ourselves, »

On the strength of the $65M-plus domestic opening of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Paramount announced this Am that a sequel is underway with Michael Bay steering the production once again. The project from Nickelodeon Movies will bow on June 3, 2016. Bay will produce alongside his Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, with Galen Walker and Scott Mednick. Screenwriters Josh Appelbaum & André Nemec (Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol) are again coming aboard to write the sequel and will also receive an exec producing credit. It’s not clear if Jonathan Liebsman will again direct. Kudos to Paramount’s marketing team led by Josh Greenstein — talk about negotiating from a place of strength.
The date for the sequel will come the same weekend as Sony is scheduled to bow the Jonah Hill/Seth Rogen comedy Sausage Party (Ugh, that title … must we?) and a week after Disney’s Alice in Wonderland and Fox’s next X-Men installment, »

Summer films aren’t just for summer anymore.
“Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” may have blinked in its release date stare-down with “Captain America 3,” but by moving out of May and into March, the comicbook film signals that Hollywood is opening its eyes to the fact that moviegoing can be a 12-month-a-year proposition. Now, the superhero mash-up will be the first film starring the Dark Knight not to debut during the summer, something that would have been all but unthinkable a few years ago.
“If you have a great film, people will come no matter when it’s dated,” said Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, president of Warner Bros. international distribution. “It’s a bold move, but we’re taking it because we think it’s such a great film.”

So here's a top ten devoted to his fellow upright leafy green characters. Trees have often played key roles in dramas, fairytales, and horror alike whether as fantastical homes, formidable characters or mysterious passageways to adventure.

Today we have the first photos from the upcoming "Big Eyes," which stars Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained), and is directed by Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Check everything out below. The story focuses on Margaret (Adams) and Walter Keane (Waltz), a pair of artists who popularized mass-produced paintings in the 1950s and 1960s that featured portraits of small children with big, sad eyes. Walter was said to be the painter, but it was later revealed that Margaret did the paintings. Margaret sued to get her share of the profits that resulted in a 1986 case in which a judge forced the couple to a "paint off" in federal court. The new movie is set to hit theaters on Christmas.

The newest story surrounding Ghostbusters 3 is an interesting one as it has Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) directing, but not the current script, but intead a completely new one from scratch, this one focusing on a female group of ghostbusters. There is no deal yet, but Feig is said to be interested and even tweeted recently, "Interesting how making a movie with men in the lead roles is normal but making a movie with women in the lead roles is a 'gimmick.'" Far from a commitment, but definitely showing a sign of interest. Considering Feig is again working with Melissa McCarthy on Spy, I think it goes without saying she'd be a top choice for the film should it come to pass and a few other great possibilities could include Rose Byrne, Emily Blunt and I'd love to see "SNL"'s Kate McKinnon get a movie role such as this. »

Principal photography is now underway on Walt Disney Pictures’ sequel to its live-action Alice in Wonderland movie, which grossed more than $1 billion worldwide in theaters back in 2010. Previously rumored to be titled Through the Looking Glass, the project’s official title (unsurprisingly) is one with greater brand recognition – namely, Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.
Disney’s first Alice live-action installment, as directed by Tim Burton, blended elements of Lewis Caroll’s two Alice novels (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There) in combination with original material that was cooked up by screenwriter Linda Woolverton. James Bobin, who served as helmsman on the last two Muppet movies, is ...
