Cuba Gooding Jr. Flashes Incredible Abs, Drops Shorts to Reveal Butt Crack—See the Pics

2 September 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Cuba Gooding Jr. has a great body, and he's not afraid to show it off! The 46-year-old Oscar winner hit the beach in Malibu this Labor Day weekend shirtless, showing off his fit, chiseled physique (hello, abs!) in red, white and blue swim shorts. Cuba also wore a hat to shield his face from the harmful Uv rays, but he actually exposed one area where the sun doesn't typically shine... Yep, we're talking about Cuba's booty! The Machete Kills star playfully pulled down his swim trunks, revealing some serious tan lines and a decent amount of butt crack. (Usually, crack is whack, but in this case, it appeared to be all in good fun.) It's hard to believe when he has a body like that, but Cuba »

Michael Bay Bringing Cosmic Motors To The Big Screen

1 September 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Michael Bay is certainly no stranger to making movies based around shiny vehicles - that was basically the impetus behind all four Transformer titles. And while the director has said that he won't be back for the inevitable Transformers 5, that doesn't mean he's done playing around with flashy cars. Enter Cosmic Motors, a new film based on an adaptation of a concept art book that Bay is now producing and shepherding to the big screen. Cosmic Motors was written by Daniel Simon and first published back in 2007, but is only now on the fast track to become a movie, thanks to a partnership between Michael Bay and Warner Bros. Thought it's not yet clear exactly how the film will function story-wise, Kyle Ward has been brought on to pen the screenplay. His previous credits include the Robert Rodriguez-directed sequel Machete Kills, as well as the upcoming Hitman sequel Agent 47. »

Michael Bay Drives To Cosmic Motors

1 September 2014 1:47 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Whether or not Michael Bay ends up directing Transformers 5, high-concept sci-fi vehicles are clearly still a part of his future. He's currently in the process of setting up Cosmic Motors at Warner Bros., a film based on Daniel Simon's book of lavish concept art. Kyle Ward, who wrote Machete Kills and the new Hitman movie Agent 47, has been tasked with creating the screenplay.Ward will also need to come up with a narrative on which to hang it, since Cosmic Motors in book form is more about concept than story. Simon has worked as a car designer for Lamborghini and Bugatti, as well as on projects like Tron: Uprising, Captain America: The First Avenger and Oblivion. His book imagines "spaceships, pods, race cars, giant trains, warships and balloons from various planets of the Galaxion system... from concept to completion" via sketches and 3D modelling.There's already a »

29 August 2014 4:17 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Daniel Simon got his first big screen credit for his work as a vehicle designer on Tron: Legacy and ever since, he’s been adding more and more titles to his resume.  And it makes sense the guy’s getting more work.  Have you seen his book Cosmic Motors?  It’s absolutely loaded with incredible vehicle designs that he puts in a fictional realm called Galaxion, a place where futuristic concepts aren’t relegated to artwork, but actually exist.

Donnie Darko Producer Brings Us a New Look at the Biblical Apocalypse with The Remaining

26 August 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

As a Christian who is involved in reviewing movies and interviewing actors and filmmakers, I’m always excited to hear about actors who share my faith. Although most critics pan any sort of Bible-based movie, I give them a chance if they fall within certain genres. I’m always on the search for a good faith-oriented horror or sci-fi film that will break down the barrier between “secular” and Christian cinema.

 

One movie that immediately caught my attention as soon as I saw the cover of the graphic novel it’s based on is The Remaining. According to the official description, it revolves around “a group of close friends [who] gather for a wedding. The celebration is shattered by a series of cataclysmic events and enemies foretold by biblical end-times prophecies. The survivors face a horrifying, uncertain future as they scramble for safety, but as their world collapses around them in »

Sin City's Robert Rodriguez "blown away" by Lady Gaga's acting ability

24 August 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Robert Rodriguez said that he was "blown away" by Lady Gaga's acting skills.

The Sin City director first worked with the musician on Machete Kills, before offering her a cameo in Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For.

Rodriguez told E! News: "I told her she had to be in it [Sin City 2]... The camera loves her.

"She's a great performer. She's performed twice for me now and I was blown away by her discipline. She studied acting before she became a singer and you could really tell."

He continued: "She happened to be on tour in Houston, just a couple of cities away from us in Austin. She was ready.

"She brought her own wigs! I said, 'We're not going to have time to make a wig for you.' She showed up, we did the scene, she knocked it out of the park and then she was back on tour. »

Film Review: More Risqué ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Doesn’t Dare to Trailblaze Again

22 August 2014 8:21 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Sex sells, sure, but the film-noir sequel “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” makes you feel dirty if you’re left thinking that’s enough.

Nine years since the visually groundbreaking, avant-garde hit “Sin City,” Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s biggest mistake with their next incarnation is replacing the first film’s bloodthirsty impact with too much nudity.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

The film is equally violent as it is naked, but we’ve almost become numb to such mutilation and it’s certainly part of this story. These talented filmmakers insult audiences by thinking Eva Green’s rabid libido and willingness to bare it all can outshine the film’s need to be otherwise compelling. She’ll satisfy the horny little boy or girl in you, but leave the mature man or woman in you really are intellectually unsatisfied.

In film and television, Green has clearly made a decision »
