‘Tron: Legacy’ Sequel Ready To Roll?

According to Deadline, Shonda Rimes is producing a scifi television series, a move that’s just a bit outside her comfort zone of relationship dramas, and interesting in and of itself.  That being said, what’s even more interesting is that David DiGilio is writing it. DiGilio is the guy that was chosen by Disney to write […]

Spider-Man 2 News

As I have mentioned before, I didn’t see Marc Webb’s Spider-man reboot, “The Amazing Spider-Man, because I had no need to see Spidey’s origin story again. Radioactive spider, bite; I get it.  Let’s move on already. Shailene Woodley is going to play Mary-Jane Watson, though since I am unfamiliar with who she is, I don’t […]

To Post-Convert To 3D Or Not Post-Convert

Guillermo Del Toro’s “Pacific Rim” is being post-converted to 3D, which is interesting when you consider how terrible such conversions tend to be. Remember “Wrath Of The Titans?”  If there’s another film that was converted to 3D to such seemingly universal disdain, I am unaware of it. That being said tickets for 3D films tend […]

An Extra Day: The House of Cards

I spent all last Thursday as an extra on Netflix’s upcoming series, House of Cards (an Americanized version of a British series), and had a great time. Prior to “House of Cards,” I worked as a policeman on “The Dark Knight Rises” (TDKR). You would think, since TDKR had a massive budget compared to “House of […]

Another Cast Member Exiting ‘The Walking Dead?’

After Shane (Jon Bernthal) left AMC’s zombie serial “The Walking Dead,” I assumed that the desire for other members of the cast to leave was over. It appears that I may have been wrong, because Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori) may be the next to depart.  She doesn’t actually say that she is, but it’s relatively […]

Kevin Feige, Go Old School With Dormammu

Doctor Strange has always one of my favorite Marvel characters, so I was jazzed to hear that Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios, intends to make a feature film of him.  That being said, I am trying to keep my expectations in check–despite the way that “The Avengers” either met or exceeded  them; though […]

‘Hunger Games’ Dethroned!

I wrote a week or so ago about ‘Hunger Games fatigue,’ that is, despite the millions of young adults–and not-so-young adults–that are fans of the books, there was no way that it could maintain its stranglehold over the North American box office for too much longer. Everything that goes up–assuming that it does not escape […]

Lionsgate Has Found A Director For ‘Catching Fire’

And according to Deadline, it’s Francis Lawrence.  Lawrence directed NBC’s short-lived series “Kings,” as well as “Constantine” and “I Am Legend” and most recently, “Water For Elephants.” So why is it that I think he’s not a great choice?  Is it because he cast Keanu Reeves as John Constantine (from the Vertigo comics series, Hellblazer). […]

Lionsgate On The Right Path?

Remember when I wrote that Gary Ross was not coming back for “Catching Fire,” the sequel to “The Hunger Games, which he directed?” Well, that may or may not be true, as sources from Deadline illustrate.  That being said, you’ll notice that they say that Ross did not “withdraw” from the franchise. Now, keep in […]
