- Daily tidbits of movie news from across the globe (well, mostly just Hollywood stuff, if I’m honest)…
- Can’t say I’m impressed with Gambit, but Liev Schreiber’s Sabretooth more than makes up for it.
- The rather disturbing and purposely controversial title, Rape: A Love Story, will no doubt garner a lot of attention. Based on a story by Joyce Carol Oates, the movie will tell the story of a young mother who is brutally gang-raped and left for dead, in an attack witnessed by her 12 year-old daughter. Abigail Breslin and Maria Bello are joined by Samuel L. Jackson as the investigating cop.
- Despite the fact that the new Friday the 13th remake was critically panned, it did well enough in the box office to have a sequel greenlit. Another horror classic being remade, A Nightmare on Elm Street, starts shooting in the next few weeks.
- Another couple of remakes in the works – Will Smith and his son, Jaden, are bringing back the Karate Kid and it seems the Neverending Story truly is neverending.
- Dreamgirls writer/director Bill Condon is planning a biopic of Richard Pryor with Eddie Murphy in the lead role. Can you smell the Oscars?
- New Star Trek Trailer
