“Top Gun: Maverick” to Soar at San Diego Comic-Con

Those attending 2019 San Diego Comic-Con should be prepared to step back into the danger zone as Paramount and Skydance Media will tease the upcoming film Top Gun: Maverick. Non-studio sources tell Deadline Hollywood that cast are being booked on flights and hotels. Star Tom Cruise hasn’t been confirmed yet, but it’s unlikely he would […]

Battle of the Batman: Val Kilmer Slides to Bottom of Bat-Poll

The Hollywood Reporter just ran a poll on who was the best Batman, and before I run my own analysis on this poll, I feel the need to pour out a 40 for Val Kilmer, who was voted the absolute worst Batman in the history of the character on film or television. First off, saying […]

Movie Twitter Account You Should Follow: Movie Premieres Unlimited

Film Twitter can be a pretty horrible place sometimes, but every once in awhile an account will spring up that brings people together and makes us feel nothing but joy when we see it in our feeds. This past week out of nowhere a new account called Movie Premieres Unlimited (@NightOpening) which just posts pictures […]

We May Still Get a Willow Sequel, Ron Howard Says

It’s not uncommon for filmmakers to be asked about previous work (and upcoming projects) when doing press junkets for current releases, as made apparent by some questions Ron Howard was asked during the Solo: A Star Wars Story media day. Specifically, a question was asked about a not-so-much-beloved-classic 1988 film Willow. The high fantasy film was directed by Howard, […]

The Snowman Review: The Crime Of Making A Dull Thriller

The Snowman is said to be based on a novel of the same name by author Jo Nesbo. That the film was developed into a script in the first place would seem to indicate that the original must had some merit as a crime thriller. Unfortunately what is releasing this weekend is so disjointed and […]

Top Gun 2 Gets Director And A Release Date

Apparently movie audiences still feel the need, the need for speed in the form of aerial combat pilots returning for Top Gun 2.  News of the sequel has been kicking around development hell for the better part of 2 years, never really going away but never really moving forward other than Tom Cruise saying “it’s happening”. Earlier […]

Ben Affleck, Val Kilmer, And More Fellow Batmen Pay Tribute To Adam West

With the sad passing of legendary Batman of the ’60s Adam West yesterday, there was an outpouring of messages honoring the iconic actor. A few of his brothers in the fraternity to play the Caped Crusader took to social media to add their voices to the tributes. The current Dark Knight, Ben Affleck, posted: Adam West […]

Oblivion’s Joseph Kosinski Rumored Frontrunner To Direct Top Gun 2

Yesterday, we learned that the long-awaited (by somebody) sequel to Top Gun 2 was in the works and would film sometime this year, according to a revelation from star Tom Cruise on an Australian talk show. Now, Variety is reporting that Joseph Kosinski, who directed Cruise’s lukewarm 2013 sci-fi movie Oblivion, is Paramount’s frontrunner to direct the […]

Val Kilmer Admits He Had Cancer But That ‘He’s In Healing’

Tabloid journalism is usually something we only think about in terms of terrible magazines sitting in the checkout lane in the grocery store. We laugh at the National Enquirer talking about how the Queen of England collapsed for something like the twelfth time this year but there is more to it than that. We also […]

Michael Fassbender Is Like Lucifer (In A New Movie)

Terrence Malick has been writing and directing movies since the late 1960’s and he only has twelve directing credits and seventeen for writing. He’s a man that likes to take his time so the fact that we’re getting a new movie called Weightless from him next year is exciting. We don’t know anything about the […]

Kevin Smith Introduces Us To His Madmartigan

I remember before cable channels like CNN, MSNBC and FOX, you got your news from the local networks and at the end of the broadcast, they would give a human interest story. A bit of hope after 55 minutes of crime, politics, weather and sports. This story reminds me of that during a time when […]




Trailer For Francis Ford Coppola’s Deranged Novelty, Twixt, Possesses Values The Film Apparently Won’t

Here’s the trailer for Francis Ford Coppola‘s gothic horror gimmick picture Twixt, formerly Twixt Now and Sunrise, with Val Kilmer and Elle Fanning, and Ben Chaplin as Edgar Allen Poe. This is not, appropriately enough, either of the edits shown at Comic-Con. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtLHPKigPc4[/youtube] Coppola’s big idea here is that Twixt will tour as a roadshow […]

Witness The Craziness For Yourself: Video Of The Francis Ford Coppola Panel From Comic-Con

Sing it with me: Nosferatu… Nosferatu… Nosferatu… Francis Ford Coppola’s panel at Comic-Con this year was flat-out baffling. Ambitious, perhaps, but maddeningly ill-conceived. These videos of the panel are edited in such a way that no footage is presented. As a result, you won’t get to hear Francis and Val singing, or several other completely […]

Ben Chaplin Playing Edgar Allan Poe For Francis Ford Coppola?

Stand back John Cusack and Viggo Mortenson, there’s another big screen Edgar Allan Poe in town, and it’s Ben Chaplin, recent victim of London Boulevard, sometime star of The Remains of the Day. A report on the IFC website has Chaplin down to play “Edgar Allan Poe”, complete with quote marks, in Francis Ford Copolla’s […]


Francis Ford Coppola Discusses His New Horror Movie, Twixt Now And Sunrise

The newly revitalised Francis Ford Coppola is now in production with a “gothic romance/horror” called, amusingly enough, Twixt Now and Sunrise. The NY Times have published some excerpts taken from a statement by Coppola, providing some insight into his inspiration and ambition for the film, and revealing some of the cast. Coppola is quoted as saying […]
