BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Some good news for those eagerly anticipating Tom Tykwer and the Wachowski’s adaptation of David Mitchell’s award-winning novel Cloud Atlas. The production has picked up an additional $1.35 million in funding from the German Federal Film Board. Now, that sounds like a drop in the bucket. But it’s worth noting the addition of funds because the film’s budget primarily has been adjusted and slashed
If you think we’ve underestimated one of your favorites or forgotten a beloved ignoramus, let us know in the comment section. Otherwise, stand back and let the idiocy waft over you. Salt shakers are about to be thrown, shoes are about to be eaten, little coats are about to be ripped and it’s going to start smelling of boats and hos in here
It's a fairly well established fact that Tom Hanks is one of the nicest guys in Hollywood. In addition to being the current generation's Jimmy Stewart on screen, the guy has a proven track record of treating both fans and press with the utmost respect and kindness. That said, you'd think there would have to be a line somewhere.
Ron Howard reportedly will not return to the franchise to helm a feature-film adaptation of The Lost Symbol for Sony Pictures. Listen, Howard is an excellent director. Certain material fits right into his wheelhouse. But he was the wrong fit for Brown’s rapidly paced narratives
Hot on the heels of Cars 2, a movie widely regarded as Pixar’s first bad film, this is particularly depressing news. Since it comes straight from Tom Hanks, Woody himself, there’s not really much reason to doubt its validity. When asked if there would be a Toy Story 4 he responded, “I think there will be yeah."
Hanks has actually been working on Matt Mason for at least two years, though bringing Zemeckis on board indicates they're finally ready to get the project made. Hanks wrote the screenplay with Graham Yost, but Mason isn't their invention
When the first trailer for Larry Crowne came out in March I was painted with the dumbest smile you've ever seen on a man. The video showcased just how incredibly likeable and nice Tom Hanks is and reminded me of how great it is to see him in movies. As a result I expected more of the same when I found out that Tom Hanks tweeted a "web only" trailer, but they somehow manage to top themselves. How? By adding George Takei.
I think we know by now we can count on Greengrass to bring more to the story; the skill he showed in United 93 alone, dramatizing events everyone knew would end tragically, suggests he knows how to take what seems like a simple real-life story and add unexpected nuance
the studio is talking about putting the film into production as soon as the fall, once Hanks is done working with the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer on Cloud Atlas. His other option is Rush, a drama about a Formula One racecar driver with a script written by The Queen's Peter Morgan
Here’s the first poster for Larry Crowne, a movie I probably wouldn’t be excited about if it didn’t star Tom Hanks, but since it does I should probably be even more excited about it. Hey, I even liked The Terminal. Put Tom Hanks on a scooter riding just about anywhere, I’m there. Bonus points if you put Julia Roberts on the back of it.
The Wachowskis are due for another hit. Since making a surprise leap to the A-list in 1999 with The Matrix, their output has been truly disappointing, with both Matrix sequels coming out as duds and Speed Racer failing to impress most. You know what's a great way to get back on top, though?
For the life of me I've never been able to figure out why Tom Hanks hasn't pursued a larger directing career. While the guy has only one feature credit to his name, 1996's That Thing You Do, it was a fantastic debut that everyone thought would lead to much more.
Aside from maybe "Miracle on the Hudson" pilot Sully Sullenberger, it's hard to imagine a more inspiring recent American hero story than that of Captain Richard Phillips, the leader of the Maersk Alabama cargo ship that was captured by Somali pirates in 2009
They may be done playing Buzz and Woody for good, but Tim Allen and Tom Hanks aren't quite finished teaming up to make money for Disney. THR reports that the two will star together in Jungle Cruise
It's a cute scene, though its really just "Hey, Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts are famous and likable, check them out." Though given how charming the two of them are, the entire movie could probably succeed based on that alone. Hanks claims when introducing the clip that he's never looked cooler in a film
Big news that Tom Tykwer and the Wachowskis will be directing the film together, rather than Tykwer going solo with the siblings producing. The news comes in the form of an interview with
With Brown on board, expect to hear more news about The Lost Symbol sooner rather than later. Assuming they don’t want to dilly-dally getting this one into theaters
After winning $31,800 on the quiz show Horn signed with the talent management agency ICM, so clearly he already had designs toward some kind of career on the screen
If you’re a filmmaker used to cobbling together a movie in a short amount of time with limited resources, then why not slap together a small indie film while you wait for things to get started with your big studio piece, right?
Last we heard from the Wachowskis, they were working on a gay soldiers at war movie called Cobalt 9, but now it seems they may have latched on to something less controversial in the form of Cloud Atlas
Johnny Depp has been trying for years to get an adaptation of the 1960s television series Dark Shadows made into a movie, but, a few months ago, it finally became a reality when both he and Tim Burton signed
The year 2012 already promises to be one hell of a twelve month period for movie fans. Already set for release are The Dark Knight Rises, The
Now that they’re out of the ground, it was only a matter of time before Hollywood snatched up the story of the trapped Chilean miners and turned it into a feature film. In fact they’re so eager
Just yesterday the story broke that Tom Hanks was circling a role in Sleeping Dogs, Academy Award winner Kathryn Bigelow's follow-up to last year's The Hurt Locker.
It's been six months since Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to take home the Best Director Academy Award, but while she settled on a project long ago, Sleeping Dogs (formally known as Triple Frontier)
