One of the very first 'Star Wars: Episode 7' announcements (minus the announcement that it was actually happening) was that Michael Arndt, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter behind 'Toy Story 3' and 'Little Miss Sunshine,' would be writing the script.
Lucasfilm has confirmed today that Arndt is out and director J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan ('The Empire Strikes Back') have "assumed screenwriting duties" on 'Star Wars: Episode 7.'
A 'Star Wars: Episode 7' trailer this early in the game (filming isn't scheduled to begin until early 2014) might seem strange, but there is some solid speculation that the first teaser trailer could be in theaters with 'Thor 2' and online next week.
Last week, we brought you the news that 'Thor 2' would feature not one, but two post-credits scenes, each of which would feature some big reveals. Fans were understandably excited after many left disappointed at the jokey 'Iron Man 3' post-credits scene. But, one person who's not excited about the 'Thor 2' post-credits scene? 'Thor 2' director Alan Taylor, who isn't happy at all that it was edited into his movie.
Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, is the man with all the superhero secrets. He knows everything about all the Marvel movies we will be getting and hope to be getting, and naturally when Mr. Feige goes out in public to promote 'Thor 2,' you can bet he's gonna get a ton of questions about the current and upcoming slate of Marvel movies.
As it so happens, he did get those questions and he gave a lot of answers. So, what have we learned about Phase 3?
Like they have done previously with the 'Jackass' series of films, Johnny Knoxville confirmed to us this weekend that a 'Bad Grandpa 1.5' is on the way that would be a sequel made up of parts that didn't make it into the original. And? It's going to star two Oscar-nominees.
Since publishing the last 'Calvin and Hobbes' comic strip on December 31, 1995, Bill Watterson, the notoriously private creator behind the series, has only granted one interview (an e-mail exchange with his hometown newspaper, the Plain Dealer, on the 15th anniversary of the strip). Many have tried to get in touch with Mr. Watterson over the years (and a documentary is scheduled to hit theaters this year on that very topic) and almost all have failed.
But, inexplicably, Watterson has emerged from hiding and spoke at length about the legacy of 'Calvin and Hobbes' and the potential for an animated movie.
Even if you haven't seen the schmaltzy 1981 movie 'Endless Love,' chances are you're at least familiar with the classic Diana Ross/Lionel Richie duet it spawned. And, that makes sense. The song was wildly popular; the movie was not (Roger Ebert called it "a narrative and logical mess"). Despite that, Universal has pressed ahead with a remake and...it's about as melodramatic as you'd expect.
Cinemax After Dark - or Skinemax, as it's more widely known - is a block of "adult programming" broadcast on Cinemax after midnight. Starting in 1984, the programming block became a staple of teenagers in the late-80s/early-90s, who grew up on sneaking downstairs while their parents were sleeping to catch some skin (not that we know from experience...).
Well, the good times are about to come to a close as Cinemax looks to rebrand, leaving Skinemax in the dust.
Just yesterday, Quentin Tarantino revealed his list of his favorite movies of 2013; a list that spurred some debate at which films really were the best of the year. But, when it comes to the title of Worst Movie of 2013, there will be no such debate. At the top will sit 'The Starving Games,' the latest "comedy" from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the prolific spoofing duo behind 'Date Movie,' 'Epic Movie' and, yes, 'Disaster Movie.'
If you're one of the people who think Batfleck is a bad thing (for the record, we disagree), just remember to tell yourself, it could've been worse. Back in 2007, pre-production began on a 'Justice League' movie that would've cast D.J. Cotrona as Superman, rapper Common as Green Lantern and Armie Hammer as Batman, with Christopher Nolan's 'Dark Knight' trilogy never happening.
The film never happened, for various reasons, but now if you're curious what a 'Justice League' movie could've looked like, you can read the script for the movie right now. (Warning: you'll have a newfound appreciation of 'Avengers,' the 'Dark Knight' and 'Man of Steel' after reading this.)
