Of the many questions I had following a screening of "Tron: Legacy," the foremost in my mind was not whether or not I believed Jeff Bridges' digital agelessness or wondered about the curious lack of action, but rather -- was that really Cillian Murphy in the first ten minutes of the film? Murphy isn't credited for his work, but then again, he doesn't have much to do, except to act smug as a board member of Encom, who like the hero of "Tron: Legacy" is the son of one of the key characters from the original 1982 film, Dillinger (David Warner). Since the film is about Flynn's kid instead, we never see Murphy again, though one suspects Disney signed him to a contract that will guarantee his participation in the event there are sequels.
The problem is there may not be a sequel, or at least an opportunity to fulfill »

Peter Berg may be mounting his Battleship for summer 2012, but the one that started it all is getting a restored theatrical re-release. One of the most influential films of all time, with Martin Scorsese to Brian De Palma borrowing from Sergei M. Eisenstein, is getting a new 35mm re-release. Every shot has been restored for this classic and “dozens” of missing shots are added. Edmund Meisel‘s 1926 original orchestral score also accompanies the film. See the trailer below via Apple.
Synopsis: For eight decades, Sergei Eisenstein’s 1925 masterpiece has remained one of the most influential silent films of all time. This all-new restoration — available for the first time in 35mm — restores dozens of missing shots, all 146 title cards, and Edmund Meisel’s definitive 1926 score, returning the film to a form as close to its creator’s bold vision as has been seen since the film’s triumphant Moscow premiere.

Earlier this month, actor Liam Neeson (Unknown, Battleship) who will reprise his role as Zeus in the forthcoming sequel to Clash of the Titans, confirmed that the second installment which will start shooting in March will be titled, Wrath of the Titans.
Now, speaking with Moviefone, actor Sam Worthington (Man on a Ledge) who plays Perseus, spoke about Wrath of the Titans. The actor admits that the reboot was a let-down to fans and that the sequel will definitely improve upon the mistakes made by the first film.
“I just think we can improve on it. I think the first one, we kind of let down some people. And yeah, I totally agree. The only point of doing a sequel is either the audience demands it or you believe you can better the first one. What we’re setting out to do with this one — the writers and the director and myself — is improve. »

Universal is still trying to pin a director to its adaptation of the Ouija Board, the supernatural Hasbro toy only “played” at teenage sleepovers now inexplicably being turned into an family-friendly adventure.
McG (Terminator Salvation) and Breck Eisner (The Crazies) both pitched their visions to studio execs recently, according to THR, who are expected to make their decision over Hollywood’s holiday break. The studio has already heard from and passed on Sylvian White (The Losers), Pierre Morel (Taken), Scott Stewart (Priest), and John Moore (The Omen).
Neither director is particularly well-suited for this tentpole-type mainstream entertainment, especially since Eisner directed the forgettable Sahara not long ago. McG’s Terminator and Charlie’s Angels films don’t inspire confidence either. Ultimately, we’re »

When it was announced that the second Hasbro property after the gates, following Peter Berg's actioner "Battleship," would be "Ouija," based on the board game that's been succesfully freaking out teenagers for decades, most, including us, assumed it would be some kind of teen horror flick--after all, the likes of "Drag Me To Hell" and "Long Time Dead" have used the system as a conceit within the horror genre. But Universal have given the film a key tentpole slot, on November 9th, 2012, and we began to suspect that the film might… »
The Wrap reports Bana is “circling” the role and scheduled to meet with the director, Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), soon to discuss the role. The outlet also cites meaningless stats like the actor’s height compared to that of the 16th U.S. President. In that case, it’s important to note that Bana looks good as a bearded gentleman.
Fox’s 3D, supernatural take, based on the novel and subsequent screenplay by Seth Grahame-Smith, centers on the President’s secret vampire slaying profession, even claiming Lincoln became an abolitionist after witnessing a slave trader feeding on his newly-purchased victims and that his assassinator, John Wilkes Booth, was really a vampire. Tim Burton is producing.
