Warner Bros. delays Gangster Squad to reshoot gun scene

Dark Knight's Gotham City officially mapped

Batman's hometown of Gotham City has always been a nebulous area, never really getting an official location. Originally it was basically a renamed New York City, but then it was sort of right next to New York, and now DC trea...

Tom Cruise to star in remake of The Magnificent Seven

So it looks like MGM is eyeing a remake of The Magnificent Seven, John Sturges's classic Western. I'd complain about Hollywood continuously remaking movies, but seeing as the original was already a remake of Akira Kurosawa's ...

Will Rihanna join the cast of Fast and Furious 6?

Evil Dead 2 rotoscoped is like Take On Me with deadites

Fact 1: rotoscoping is awesome. Fact 2: Evil Dead 2 is awesome. So when someone rotoscopes Evil Dead 2? That's, like, awesome squared. Sadly, it's just the trailer, not the whole movie. But still, I love the look that studio...

Spider-Man's origin to be dragged out over multiple films

Part of the problem with doing a new Spider-Man origin film is that we just got one back in 2002. (Well, 2002 feels like it was only yesterday to me!) So unless you were too young to watch movies, you probably saw it and know...

Lucas digitally swapping Jar Jar Binks with Jeff Goldblum

Star Wars fans have long bemoaned the horror that is Jar Jar Binks. Strange-looking in 1999, completely dated compared to modern CGI, and ever annoying, he is the symbol for everything wrong with the Star Wars prequels. What'...
