Take this news with a huge grain of salt, but The Tracking Board is reporting that Warner Bros. has narrowed down the list of potential directors for its upcoming Tomb Raider reboot to three. Those three rumored finalists are Academy Award-winner Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), and Mimi Leder (Deep Impact). The reportedly fast-tracked reboot, a co-production between WB, MGM, Gk Films, and Eidos Interactive, is said to follow a younger version of Lara Croft as she heads out on her first treasure-hunting adventure. Bigelow would be a huge get for the film, but with her award-winning pedigree, it's a little hard to see her taking on this project, which revives the long-dormant video game-to-film franchise that previously starred Academy Award-winner Angelina Jolie (Maleficent) as the titular heroine. Leder and Hardwicke also have major big-budget films on their resumes, but it's still a little hard to picture »

Blazing a trail in 1995, Hackers tackled web culture on screen before the internet really took off. The cyber-thriller helped kick-start the career of a major Hollywood A-lister and swiftly became a cult classic thanks to its Hacker Manifesto.
As Hackers celebrates its 20th birthday today (September 15), here's what happened to the six stars who made up the cyber-punk crew.
Hackers handle: Acid Burn
In 1995, Jolie was a fast-rising 20-year-old actress with Cyborg 2 and some big music videos (including Meat Loaf, Lenny Kravitz and The Lemonheads) on her CV. New York Times critic Janet Maslin was non too plussed about Jolie's performance, saying of her character: "Kate stands out. That's because she scowls even more sourly than [her co-stars] and is that rare female hacker who sits intently at her keyboard in a see-through top."
Now, the 40-year-old is an Oscar-winning superstar with humanitarian work spanning more than a decade and »

For fans of 1972’s “Match of the Century,” the film is everything you’re hoping for. Zwick’s movie is flawless right down to the re-enactment of the 1971 interview with Dick Cavett.

As was revealed earlier this year, Steven Spielberg is set to direct the movie adaptation of Ernest Cline's ultra-nerdy book, Ready Player One. If you've not had the pleasure of the book, and it's well worth seeking out, it's a future sci-fi tale, where knowledge of 80s videogames comes in really rather useful. We'll spoil things if we tell you much more than that.
Of the main roles needing to be cast in the film, we've not yet heard word of who's in the running to play Wade Watts. But The Wrap has the casting shortlist for the part of Art3mis. Five names are said to be on it, although only three have been uncovered so far.
“War Room,” the low-budget movie about the power of prayer that broke out at the box office this weekend, is the latest example of audiences making a hit out of a film that the critics panned. It’s not unusual for critics and audiences to be divided, particularly in the summer, since superhero and action films aren’t necessarily intended to be high art, simply crowd-pleasers. Last year, Michael Bay‘s “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” Angelina Jolie‘s “Maleficent” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” all were beaten up by critics but went on to box-office success. But rarely is the divide between critics and the. »

This modern retelling definitely looks like a 2015 blockbuster but it peddles some uncomfortably old-fashioned values
Disney traditionalists are sure to find comfort in Kenneth Branagh’s live-action Cinderella as it glides on to home video this week, because unlike the majority of recent efforts to revive the studio’s flagship fairytales, this new spin on the glass-slippered classic makes few concessions to contemporary life. Indeed, the film plays out almost exactly as Walt himself might have envisioned, eschewing the metatextual postmodernism of last year’s Sleeping Beauty reboot Maleficent and the general batshittery of Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland.
Still, tradition has a short memory, so while the most influential version of the Cinderella story is probably the 1697 text by Charles Perrault, this new telling owes more to Disney’s own 1950 animated adaptation. Handily, this allows the studio to credit the story both to Perrault and “Disney’s Cinderella »
