Anchorman 2 director Adam McKay is directing the film which stars Christian Bale (The Dark Knight Trilogy), Brad Pitt (Fury), Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) and Ryan Gosling (Drive), as well as newly announced additions Marisa Tomei (The Wrestler) and Melissa Leo (The Fighter).
McKay re-wrote the film from a previous script from Charles Randolph (Love and Other Drugs), which is based on bestselling non-fiction book The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine by Michael Lewis. The book tells the remarkable true story of the genius contrarian investors who, recognizing just how insane the housing bubble had become, figured out how to “short” the market prior to the financial collapse of 2008.

Apparently the first look at the upcoming Point Break remake from director Ericson Core was shown during CinemaCon down in Las Vegas yesterday and with that comes the first looks at Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez in the film playing FBI agent Johnny Utah and extreme sports enthusiast and criminal Bodhi respectively. The duo are playing roles made popular by Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze in Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 film, and for many this remake is completely unnecessary, but it's set to arrive on December 25 nonetheless. One week after Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, which is to say... we'll see how this turns out. This updated version will follow a similar premise as the first as a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill seeking elite athletes, led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a string »

Before he directed the Godzilla remake, Gareth Edwards made a small sci-fi film called Monsters, which was released back in 2010. Made on a reported budget of only $500,000, it was more of a relationship drama than anything else, as aliens had taken over Mexico and two people attempted to make their way out of the "Infected Zone" and into the United States. It was a decent enough movie, showcasing more the talent of Edwards and, at the time, newcomer Scoot McNairy, but in the end it was a slight picture, hindered more by its budget than anything else. Now, five years later, Edwards has moved on (next up is the Star Wars spin-off Rogue One) and director Tom Green has picked up the Monsters mantle with Monsters: Dark Continent. Similar to the first film, the focus isn't on the aliens, which appear to have become a global threat, but more on »

“I don’t really look for movies based on the budget or the nationality or the language. I just want to be in movies that I wouldn’t mind seeing 10 years from now,” Viggo Mortensen recently told The Guardian. And while time will tell if "Far From Men" will still resonate a decade from now, in its corner is a film score by the always great Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. And today you can get a little taste of what they've contributed to the movie. Directed by David Oelhoffen (2007’s “In Your Wake”) and based on a short story by Albert Camus, the story follows a reclusive teacher (Mortensen) who helps a villager accused of murder (Reda Kateb from “Zero Dark Thirty” and “A Prophet”) escape into the mountains during the Algerian War. Below, you can preview the soundtrack which sounds terrifically moody, with influences and inflections from the setting. »

As Robyn learns the unsettling truth about what happened between Simon and Gordo, she starts to question: how well do we really know the people closest to us, and are past bygones ever really bygones? The new movie is directed by Joel Edgerton, the actor from such films as "The Great Gatsby," "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Warrior." It's set to hit theaters on July 31st. »
The story, which is being written by Christian Contreras from his pitch, centers on English mathematician and physicist Isaac Newton hunting for a criminal four centuries ago. Newton’s book “Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica” (“Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy”) was published in 1687, establishing the scientific foundation for the laws of motion and gravitation.
Warner Bros. signed Goyer — whose writing credits include the “Dark Knight” trilogy, “Man of Steel” and the upcoming “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” — to a first-look deal in 2013. He’s also producing the horror-thriller “The Forest,” starring Natalie Dormer, for Lava Bear.
