Philip Seymour Hoffman Doesn’t Want Your Penguin, Batman

Well that was short lived. After just a day of rumor-iffic tales that Johnny Depp would play the Riddler and Philip Seymour Hoffman would be the Penguin, half of that idea has been squashed. MTV talked with Hoffman yesterday at the Toronto Film Festival about if this rumor was true. The results were less than […]

Spielberg Sued Over ‘Disturbia’ Copyright Infringement

This weekend while I was enjoying “Disturbia” on a “Free HBO Weekend” some paperwork was being prepared for said movie, some not-so-nice paperwork at that. On Monday a lawsuit was filed in Manhattan’s federal court, alleging that Steven Spielberg and associated studios stole the story for 2007’s thriller, “Distubia”: According to the lawsuit, filed by […]

Two-Face Had One-Run, Says Eckhart

After watching Batman knock Harvey Dent off three stories to the ground below I assumed the villain Two-Face was dead. However, it seemed many people thought otherwise, especially considering the scene where Eric Roberts explained a fall from just a few stories wouldn’t kill anyone. Two-Face wasn’t the most exciting of villains, but he had […]

Kirsten Dunst Gets “Alienate” Author Banned From Set

I am not a fan of Kirsten Dunst. At All. Her acting is flat and her attitude insufferable. So I find it as no surprise that she keeps the brat beat alive on the set of her latest film, “How To Lose Friends & Alienate People”. Apparently Dunst doesn’t take well to being told she […]

Dan Aykroyd Wants Rogen And Apatow To Cross Streams

Rumors floated around like Slimer that Ghostbusters was being renewed by Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow’s clan. Both Rogen and Apatow denied the story, but turns out there was at least some truth to the matter. Ghostbusters is in fact being revived, just not by funnyman Apatow. Not yet at least. E! went straight to […]

Fox was aiming for a court hearing late in the summer to resolve rights to the pending blockbuster which would have delayed Warner Bros.’ planned March 2009 release for Watchmen.

Nic Cage Talks Ghost Rider 2

I was a big fan of the Ghost Rider comics. Yes, even the original series, not just the refresh. But when it came time for the big screen adaptation I skipped it. Thanks a lot, Nic Cage. Cage was simply the wrong casting for Johnny Blaze and I wasn’t going to have anything to do […]

Millar Wants LotR Style Superman Trilogy

Mark Millar, the comic writer who brought you this summer’s Wanted, is doing a bit of “wanting” of his own. This time he’s got his eyes on the alleged Superman reboot now that Warner Bros. plans to kick Superman Returns’ director Bryan Singer to the curb. Millar wouldn’t be directing, but he just might be […]
