10 Rubbish Movies Directed By Great Actors

3 February 2016 1:41 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures

For a lot of actors, becoming a director is a long held ambition. The reason that this transition from in-front-of-the-camera talent to behind-the-scenes wrangler became the basis of the Entourage movie is because it’s become something of a Hollywood cliché.

Sometimes, this career switch can have brilliant results. But, seemingly more often, it goes really badly. Clint Eastwood is a prime example of both camps: Unforgiven, Million Dollar Baby, Mystic River and Gran Torino are awesome, but they sit right next to J. Edgar, Jersey Boys and Changeling in his filmography.

Not all actors are lucky enough to get this many chances to prove themselves in the director’s chair. Some have their one big shot, totally blow it, and retreat quietly back to acting roles. Here are the worst of the worst, then, from great actors who tried their hand as directors…

Han Solo 'Star Wars' Spinoff: Actor Shortlist Revealed!

11 January 2016 12:31 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Not only could they continue the Skywalker saga in the main episode films, but by creating the unrelated stories, they've effectively ensured the expansion of the "Star Wars" universe, and the longevity of an already evergreen franchise. All that aside, for its first couple spinoffs, Disney has opted to keep the stories relatively close to the main saga. The first film, "Rogue One," follows a band of rebels in their attempts to steal the plans for the original Death Star, and the second film is none other than a Han Solo spinoff.

With Harrison Ford as the original actor, whoever this new man is will have quite the shoes to fill. So who will be playing everyone's favorite scoundrel? We don't know just yet, but Variety has just revealed a shortlist for the character. »

'The Revenant' Storms the Box Office; 'Star Wars' Opens with $53M in China

10 January 2016 8:44 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The Revenant exploded this weekend as audiences showed up in droves to see Leonardo DiCaprio brave the elements in his quest for revenge. The strong Oscar contender expanded into 3,375 theaters and amassed an impressive $38 million taking second only to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which not only finished #1 domestically but started its China release strong. Meanwhile The Forest continues to prove there's a reliable audience willing to show up for low budget, PG-13 horror at the beginning of the year. First for The Revenant, which not only decimated BoxOfficeMojo projections, but seems to have proven the idea of a star's drawing power is not as dead as some may have you believe. DiCaprio's last five films that opened in over 3,000 theaters have all grossed $30 million or more in their opening weekend. And that doesn't include Shutter Island, which opened in 2,991 theaters back in 2010 and brought in $41 million. The $38 million for »
