Robin Williams is in negotiations to return for the third installment in the "Night at the Museum" franchise, which will begin shooting in February and will bring back Ben Stiller as security guard Larry Daley as well as director Shawn Levy. Williams has played Teddy Roosevelt in both "Night at the Museum" and "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian" and will reprise the role as the action moves to London. It's still not clear whether Amy Adams, Bill Hader and Christopher Guest will reprise their roles. The first "Night at the Museum" was released in 2006 and went on to gross $574 million worldwide. The sequel hit theaters three years later, grossing $413 million. Since these films cost around $150 million to make, many wondered whether 20th Century Fox would want to gamble on another installment. »

According to actor Tom Hardy ("The Dark Knight Rises"), he will play ruthless 1920's gangster 'Al Capone' in the feature "Cicero", to be directed by David Yates, following reshoots of director George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road".
Hardy said he has been working with Warner Bros, "watching their gangster films — the ones with James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and Edward G. Robinson...it’s interesting to get them, and a bit of Capone, into the bloodstream… The idea isn’t to remake those films but to get a flavour of them as we explore Capone’s career as a racketeer."
Actors previously playing Capone in film include Rod Steiger, "Al Capone" (1959), Neville Brand, "The George Raft Story (1961), Jason Robards, "The St. Valentine's Day Massacre" (1967), Buddy Lester, "Poor Devil" (1973), Ben Gazzara, »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will explore how stunt artists utilize emerging technologies to bring previously impossible stunts to the screen in “Real to Reel: The Art of Action” on Friday, September 20, at 7:30 p.m. at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.
Using scenes from films including “The Matrix” (1999), “Transformers” (2007), “Alice in Wonderland” (2010), “Real Steel” (2011), “Warrior” (2011), “Skyfall” (2012), “The Master” (2012) and “Iron Man 3″ (2013), “Real to Reel” will illustrate how technology is expanding cinematic possibilities for stunt artists.
Hosted by stunt coordinator Garrett Warren, the night will include live demonstrations, behind-the-scenes footage and conversations with some of the films’ creative teams, who will discuss how scenes were created.
Warren was a martial artist before launching his on-screen career. He has served as stunt coordinator on such features as “Beowulf” (2007), “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian” (2009), “Avatar” (2009), “Alice in Wonderland” (2010), “Real Steel” (2011) and “Lincoln” (2012).

I’m actually angry at how little the movie even tries. There isn’t enough of anything here to pad out a brief sketch, never mind a feature-length film. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): the trailer is hideous and unfunny
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
And here I was all excited about the revolution in VOD. In case you were under any delusion that all these movies debuting on-demand indicated a shift away from nontheatrical releases as anything other than a dumping ground, here comes the monstrous Hell Baby to set you straight. Oh, it’s not monstrous in any good way… and there should be a good monstrosity to a film that purports to be a horror comedy; there should also be something — anything! — funny about it. I’m actually angry at how little writers and directors Robert Ben Garant »

The Internship is kind of a bizarre comedy. It removes the potential for mean-spirited humor by not featuring two leads consistently bust each other’s balls. Director Shawn Levy‘s film is somewhat of an anti-ironic comedy, to the point where that type of self-impressed smirking is literally put down in the movie itself. That makes sense when you consider Levy’s body of work. His movies are as innocent and audience-friendly as one can imagine. From The Night at the Museum movies to, a personal favorite, Big Fat Liar, there’s zero cynicism in their content. For his reunion film between Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, Levy explores potentially depressing material: two friends whose lives fall out from under them and, once they start interning at Google, the possibility of failure is always high. In spite of their low chances of obtaining a full-time position at Google, the two characters, and »

Antoine Fuqua.s Olympus Has Fallen will have to throw some creative wrenches into the works in order to distance itself from the plethora of other films, both good and bad, that are about attacks on the White House and presidential kidnappings. The trailers make the film look thrilling enough, but that.s what trailers are supposed to do. After spending sometime on the Olympus Has Fallen supplemental website, it.s clear that the film.s promotional techniques are of above average quality, which will hopefully reflect on the film itself. It.s touting itself as the White House action movie, kind of similar to how Air Force One and Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian used their locations as major selling points, and the website fully delivers on this notion of giving viewers .inside access. to the White House and its staff. One should always go into »

Trevor Hogg chats with Guillaume Rocheron about fulfilling his ambition of becoming a visual effects supervisor...
“I always liked painting but I was not good at it,” states French Visual Effects Supervisor Guillaume Rocheron who is based at the Vancouver facility for the Motion Picture Company (Mpc). When a childhood friend introduced him to the idea of creating digital images, the young artist flourished. “I was doing simple programming. I was interested by computers and for me it was a good medium because it was that mix of technology and artistic things. I started to make images at home and little short films; that’s how I got into it. I saw Jurassic Park  and Terminator 2 . You see those films and its like, ‘Wow! How did they make that?’ You realize that they made this in a computer and you think, ‘Maybe I can do that one day.’ One of »
If you were to ask me to list the actors best suited to slip on David Hasselhoff.s trademark red swim trunks for Paramount.s planned reboot of the one-time hit television program Baywatch, Saturday Night Live standout Bill Hader probably wouldn.t be in the top 100 selections. Which explains why he.s now the person chosen by the studio to lead the charge across the beach and into the ocean. Hader, whose recent film credits have expanded to include mainstream blockbusters like Men In Black 3 (where he played Andy Warhol), and Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian -- as well as smaller movies like Paul and Adventureland -- will take on the lead role in the Baywatch film, The Wrap reports. Reno 911! co-creator Robert Ben Garant will direct the film, which reportedly will find the Malibu lifeguards exploring an off-the-coast oil rig that turns out to »
