Video: Virtual Reality in Movies

Virtual reality is a dividing subject that has half of the population excited and the other half droning on about how it is going to come and go, ‘just like 3D did’.

It will be written and directed by Oscar winner Stephen Gaghan. Gaghan has previously written and / or directed films such as Syriana, Gold, Havoc, and Rules of Engagement.

Downey Jr. Introduces Us to the Animals of The Voyage Of Dr Dolittle

  • Cinelinx
The Doctor is in, and ready to speak with a rather large cast of animals, in the new Voyage of Doctor Dolittle.

Robert Downey Jr. is set to take up the mantle of Dr. Dolittle, in another remake of the classic film by the same name. Based on Hugh Lofting’s 1920's children's books, The Voyage Of Dr. Dolittle will reimagine the tale of a doctor who discovers that he can not only hear animals speaking to him, but he can talk to them as well.

The original film came out in 1967, and was then famously remade by comedic legend Eddie Murphy in 1998. The remake spawned a theatrical sequel, and a few direct-dvd sequels. Now as it looks like Robert Downey Jr. attempts to fill the shoes of Eddie Murphy, he has recently dropped the entire voice cast of the film.

Princess Diana Was Related to Humphrey Bogart, Winston Churchill, and Lots of Us Presidents

Not only is she one of the world's most famous princesses, but Princess Diana had tons of famous relatives. And she's not alone — many of the other British royals have fascinating celebrity relations, too. For starters, Casablanca star Humphrey Bogart was Diana's seventh cousin. "Lady Diana's relationship to Mr. Bogart is a pretty remote linkup, but it is definitely there," Hugh Peskett, senior genealogist of the aristocracy guide Debrett's, once told Upi. And the late princess's ancestry also links her to Little Women writer Louisa May Alcott, silent film stars Rudolph Valentino and Lillian Gish, financier J. Pierpont Morgan, and American World War II general George Patton. So cool, right?! Humphrey Bogart in 1940. (Photo Credit: Getty Images) Plus, as Time reported in 1981, Diana could count many world leaders as family members, including former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. Across the pond, George Washington was Diana's eighth cousin seven times removed…
