The agreement was over the night, closing at 8 am Saturday. A great script, talented (if not shown) of the directors and cast a perfect lead pass from Toni Collette, Greg Kinnear, Steve Carell and Alan Arkin. I love to see Eckhart find their own Katharine Hepburn to Spencer Tracy, a romantic comedy role of chemistry. It is a huge commercial family comedy. Eckhart expects to make romantic comedies more like the one being filmed now, a remake of the comedy Mostly Martha German cuisine, along with Catherine Zeta Jones. Sandra Bullock? Cameron Diaz? And William H. Macy were there, along with the young ...More

Saturday I crouched on the floor and watched a DVD of the South African Passion of the Christ, the Son of Man, the best film I saw at the festival, was shot in true high definition under the clear blue sky Town Cape. On my last day in City Park last interview I made the Sundance Channel in front of Egypt in the swirling snow. The transposition of the story of Christ to a municipality in southern Africa in the midst of a brutal civil war master worksI love the party, when winds down and people to catch up on things that were lost that has good word of mouth. It is the second collaboration between Mark ...More

Call response sent us all morning, and I interviewed everyone who got on the phone for an Oscar sidebar Policy. Well, I was out the door at 5:45 AM with bags of smoked salmon, cream cheese, bagels and fruit to the rear of the troops of THR.

Caryn James recommends checking early Lee films, and rightly so: they are great. While this entertaining film in New York for some issues, maybe we will see that Jackie Robinson biopic Spike wanted to do for a long timeAt some point, however, Spike made the same mistake in Oliver Stone did was brave in giving a good political appointment. I have always maintained that Spike must work with movie stars, too, as it does with good results here. Spike did cover stories of Mother Jones and EW, leaving him in Cannes when he was robbed of the Palme d’Or for “Do the Right Thing” and later ...More

It is unusual because it is a writer and a director of great ambition, who wants to compete with his hero Steven Spielberg at the box office derby, but also wants to be taken seriously beyond its identity as a director of commercial genre films, including the Academy. People who do that are a rare breed. After The Sixth Sense hit the blockbuster stratosphere, he became very powerful as a list of great writer-director, and may have landed some big assignments, if he wanted to, Harry Potter, etc, but I played alongLike Cameron Crowe and James L. Brooks, a part of crazy charm of Shyamalan is actually ...More

Sure, Universal came out at the end of the day at $ 207 million of Peter Jackson, three hours remake of King Kong, but should not have been a struggle. When reinventing a franchise like Superman, the temptation of a study is a waste of money in the first film he has to sell movies in the future. Batman Begins’ $ 205 million GDP is not the kind of number Warner Bros. is looking for here. Superman Returns would not be looking a bit fragile at the moment if it had not cost so much (about $ 220 million plus $ 40 million in development costs) and if it was so long, two hours and 40 minutes (which is ...More
