Abraham Lincoln
Another big movie starting production this fall (the other being "The Wolverine") is Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln", an epic biopic that the director has been preparing for a very long time. After many delays and financial problems, the production is ready to go. The movie will be based on Abraham Lincoln's biography written by Doris Kearns Goodwin, an acclaimed historian, and the adaptation will be penned by John Logan ("Gladiator", "The Last Samurai"), Paul Webb and Tony Kushner ("Munich", "Angels in America"). At one point, Liam Neeson was set to star as Abraham Lincoln, but all the delays made the actor decide to step down after several years of waiting. In the end, though, Spielberg got together a dream team of actors that will surely guarantee the movie will provide an acting showcase like no other.

Daniel Day Lewis
The role of Abe Lincoln eventually went to Daniel Day-Lewis ("My Left Foot"). This is Lewis' first major project after winning his second Oscar for "There Will be Blood" and starring in the musical flop "Nine". Lincoln's wife, Mary Todd Lincoln will be played by Sally Field ("Forrest Gump", "Brothers & Sisters") and Vice-President Thaddeus Stevens will be embodied by veteran actor Tommy Lee Jones ("The Fugitive""In the Valley of Ellah"). A couple of days ago, David Strathairn ("Good Night and Good Luck", "The Bourne Ultimatum") was brought on board as William Seward, Lincoln's Secretary of State. Also, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who is currently involved in the production of "The Dark Knight Rises", will play Robert Todd Lincoln, the President's first son and Secretary of War.

Other members of the stellar cast, in unknown roles, are : James Spader ("Stargate", "Boston Legal") , Tim Blake Nelson ("Minority Report", "O Brother, Where Art Thou ?"), John Hawkes ("American Gangster", "The Perfect Storm", "Winter's Bone"), Hal Holbrook ("Into the Wild", "All the President's Men"), Bruce McGill ("Collateral", "Law Abiding Citizen"), Joseph Cross ("Milk", "Flags of Our Fathers") and Gloria Reuben ("Timecop", "Nick of Time").   Also, the project will once again reunite Spielberg with his favorite composer and five-time Academy Award winner John Williams. They have also worked together on this year's "War Horse" and "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn".

The movie is set for a December 2012 release.


In March, this year, Darren Aronofsky backed out of the sequel to Wolverine's X-Men origin story, emphatically titled "The Wolverine". Fans were certainly disappointed that the man behind such instant classics as "Requiem for a Dream" and "Black Swan" was unable to commit to the comic book movie. After much toil and trouble, 20th Century Fox managed to bring in James Mangold, another strong director whose body of work includes movies like 2007's "3:10 to Yuma", "Walk the Line" and "Girl, Interrupted". Not as richly imaginative as Aronofsky, you might say, but certainly a capable director who could even get Stallone to turn in an above-average performance in "Cop Land".

Now, we finally get an idea about whether or not the production is moving forward. Hugh Jackman has responded in an interview that they will start filming in October and the movie will be released in 2012. It's not the exact information fans are hoping for, but it's a start, considering how difficult the journey has been so far. Honestly, I don't care how long it takes, i just hope it will be an improvement over "X-Men Origins: Wolverine".


Official Synopsis: "Captain America: The First Avenger" will focus on the early days of the Marvel Universe when Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) volunteers to participate in an experimental program that turns him into the Super Soldier known as Captain America. As Captain America, Rogers joins forces with Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to wage war on the evil HYDRA organization, led by the villainous Red Skull (Hugo Weaving.)

Starring: Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones, Natalie Dormer, Stanley Tucci

Following the huge success of "Fast Five" (almost $600M worldwide), Universal immediately green-lit the fifth sequel in the franchise. And now, they have announced the official release date : May 24, 2013, less than two years from now. From the little information that is available at the moment, it seems that director Justin Lin ("Tokyo Drift", "Fast & Furious", "Fast Five"), will return, as well as writer Chris Morgan and stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson. And since the fifth one did so well at the box-office, I'm sure Universal will allow a big juicy budget for the sequel, in order to ensure it wows audiences back for another ride.

In other news, Guillermo Del Toro's epic monster movie, "Pacific Rim", has obtained a release date as well. This is Del Toro's first job as director since "Hellboy II" in 2008. Warner Bros. has officially announced that July 12, 2013 is the perfect day to unleash the sci-fi blockbuster. In case you're wondering what it's all about, all I can tell you for now is that the story features and alien attack on Earth and humans fighting the giant extra-terrestrial creatures with equally giant robots. If while reading this you're rolling your eyes, you have good reason for it, but this Guillermo Del Toro we're talking about and, at the very least, it should be a visually intriguing B-style thrill ride. So far, the filmmakers cast Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba in key roles. Still no green light for "Mountains of Madness", Del Toro and James Cameron's adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's "At the Mountains of Madness", which was scrubbed due to large costs and the director's intention to make it R-rated.


Official Synopsis: From director Steven Spielberg comes “War Horse,” an epic adventure for audiences of all ages. Set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War, “War Horse” begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets—British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter—before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land.

The First World War is experienced through the journey of this horse—an odyssey of joy and sorrow, passionate friendship and high adventure. “War Horse” is one of the great stories of friendship and war—a successful book, it was turned into a hugely successful international theatrical hit that is arriving on Broadway next year. It now comes to screen in an epic adaptation by one of the great directors in film history.

Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch" (one of the year's biggest flops) is the guiltiest guilty pleasure I ever had the chance of watching. The story of a young woman in a mental institution, rebelling against the system within a schizophrenic dreamscape version of reality, with the aid of fellow inmates, is a visual wet dream, if nothing else. The surreal blend of genres gives birth to an irreverent visual style that is uniquely engaging and definitely worth exploring. Too bad the movie doesn't have the same interest when it comes to characters and story. All things considered, this is the cinematic equivalent of a video-game. But, like I said, it's one hell of a guilty pleasure. The extended cut on Blu-Ray is 18 minutes longer. 

Nicolas Cage has achieved a sort of infamy with his career choices lately. Only this year he's managed to bag two B-style flicks. One is a gory mess, full of outrageous distractions,"Drive Angry 3D" (read the review here), the other is the much less entertaining "Season of the Witch" (again, read the review here). A shallow rehash of all the good vs. evil stories ever commited to celluloid (particularly "The Exorcist" ), this tale of knights and witches directed by Dominic Sena ("Swordfish", "Gone in 60 Seconds") makes no efforts to weave any kind of clever plot or intricate set pieces. It's boring, incredibly cheesy and not particularly scary. Proceed at your own risk. Read on to find out more.

"Love is Never Ugly" the tagline says. But this movie sure does. Lazy and unimaginative, poorly acted, written and directed, "Beastly" is an inferior retelling of the classic "Beauty and the Beast" story, based on a novel written by Alex Flinn. It that has a lot in common with another beloved work of fiction, "Twilight". But, as much as I hate saying this, I enjoyed the movie adaptation of "Twilight" more than I did "Beastly", and I avoid seeing "Twilight" again like the plague. Alex Pettyfer might be the next Robert Pattinson, but I have a hunch neither will make it past their teen sensation moment. Disappointingly, there's not much reason to go for the Blu-Ray if you're looking for more special features. Both the DVD and BD editions have the same exact content. Read on to find out more.

The unforgettable movie trilogy that has forever changed the way we look at epic filmmaking, "The Lord of the Rings" saga, is now released on Blu-Ray, with all three movies featured in their extended form. As you can expect the Hi-Def quality is sharp as always and there are plenty of Special Features to keep you busy for a week or so, not to mention how long it takes to watch all three extended movies (about 11 hours). Fans of Tolkien's work will no doubt enjoy the complete versions of each movie a lot more. If you absolutely love "The Lord of the Rings", you don't mind the extra running time and don't already own the extended editions on DVD, this is one collection you should definitely pick up. The Special Features, curiously, are contained on DVDs. Only the feature films are on Blu-Ray discs. Read on to see what exactly you'll find inside that box.

Official Synopsis: Tripp Kennedy (Patrick Dempsey) ambles into a bank near closing time, just as two different gangs unwittingly converge to rob it. A shoot-out erupts, and Tripp tackles the smart, pretty teller, Kaitlin (Ashley Judd), to protect her. The gangs, one clearly made up of pros and the other a couple of buffoons named Peanut Butter (Tim Blake Nelson) and Jelly (Pruitt Taylor Vince), have deadlocked themselves in a Mexican standoff. The bank's security system starts the end-of-day lockdown and seals everyone into the building. As the night evolves, a hilarious game of cat and mouse ensues as Tripp and Kaitlin try to save the day, escape being killed, and avoid falling in love...almost.

When Sally unwittingly lets loose a race of ancient, dark-dwelling creatures who conspire to drag her down into the mysterious house’s bottomless depths, she must convince Alex and Kim that it’s not a fantasy—before the evil lurking in the dark consumes them all.

Official Synopsis: Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In "Brave", a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts.

Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.

Official Synopsis: 1873. Arizona Territory. A stranger (Craig) with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The only hint to his history is a mysterious shackle that encircles one wrist. What he discovers is that the people of Absolution don’t welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered to do so by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Ford). It’s a town that lives in fear. 

But Absolution is about to experience fear it can scarcely comprehend as the desolate city is attacked by marauders from the sky. Screaming down with breathtaking velocity and blinding lights to abduct the helpless one by one, these monsters challenge everything the residents have ever known. 

Now, the stranger they rejected is their only hope for salvation. As this gunslinger slowly starts to remember who he is and where he’s been, he realizes he holds a secret that could give the town a fighting chance against the alien force. With the help of the elusive traveler Ella (Wilde), he pulls together a posse comprised of former opponents – townsfolk, Dolarhyde and his boys, outlaws and Apache warriors – all in danger of annihilation. United against a common enemy, they will prepare for an epic showdown for survival.

The week of 24 June, 2011, saw two new releases make their way into the top 10, "Cars 2" and "Bad Teacher". The movies that exited the top 10 this week are : "Kung Fu Panda 2" and "Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer". Read on to see how the other movies, as well as the new releases, performed this week-end (click on each movie title to read more about them).

Brandon Lee as Eric Draven
Reluctant as I may be when it comes to seeing a reboot of Alex Proyas' cult classic, "The Crow", I still find the names involved in its making to be intriguing. The first name that was dropped some time ago was that of director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, who in 2006 directed "28 Weeks Later", the sequel to Danny Boyle's zombie classic. No doubt he has the dark touch needed for this movie Then the search for a leading man to step in Brandon Lee's shoes began. For a while, Mark Wahlberg's name was dropped as favorite for the supernatural anti-hero. Now, Bradley Cooper ("Limitless", "The Hangover Part I & II") is the new Eric Draven, the man who returns from the grave to avenge his wife's murder. The latest addition to the roster is "Watchmen" writer Alex Tse. According to Relativity Media, the reboot will be a gritty reimagining of the original concept. Now, anyone who has seen the Alex Proyas movie knows how cool it was, an innovative gothic action thriller brimming with slick cinematography and production design. Will they be able to pull it off again ?

There are still many problems yet to be resolved. For one, there's the legal trouble with the Weinstein Company (formerly Miramax), who claim Relativity Media is illegally shopping around for distribution rights that are rightfully owned by the Weinsteins. And, of course, Bradley Cooper's casting was met with harsh scepticism by fans. But, I trust he can pull off an intense dramatic performance. If you don't believe me, check out "Midnight Meat Train", or even "Limitless".


Official Synopsis: "Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star" is a new comedy starring Nick Swardson, Christina Ricci, Don Johnson, and Stephen Dorff.

I've always wondered why they've never considered a sequel for "Independence Day". It's just the kind of popcorn flick that begs for a sequel. Come to think of it, none of the movies Ronald Emmerich makes ever get sequels. Kind of makes you respect the man a little more. Anyway, Emmerich's long-time collaborator, producer/writer Dean Devlin, made a few confessions about the sequel for the 1996 sci-fi actioner and talked about some ideas for a future "Stargate" trilogy. To hear for yourself, watch the interview below, courtesy of Collider.com :

The two international posters for "Cowboys & Aliens" feature Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig and Olivia Wilde and look pretty good. They have a nice look that blends sci-fi and western, making the characters look heroic and strong, but also underlining the alien element. There's a strong indication in the second poster that they will come against some sort of mothership. While the posters certainly look very serious, the movie could very well choose to play it campy. I'm sure it can't pull off the straight-face gritty action thriller routine without feeling ridiculous, so, maybe Favreau ("Iron Man") found a way to mix things up, in order to avoid the cheesiness. We'll find out on July 29, 2011. Just click the pictures to see them full-size.


Official Synopsis: Cronenberg once again gathered a prestigious crew to work on A DANGEROUS METHOD, director of photography Peter Suschitsky (A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE, EASTERN PROMISES), composer Howard Shore (THE LORD OF THE RINGS Trilogy, AVATAR), editor Ronald Sanders (A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE, EASTERN PROMISES, CORALINE), costume designer Denise Cronenberg (A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE, EASTERN PROMISES, THE INCREDIBLE HULK) and production designer James McAteer (GOOD WILL HUNTING, A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE, THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMAN). The screenplay was adapted by Christopher Hampton (ATONEMENT, THE QUIET AMERICAN) from his own play.

Seduced by the challenge of an impossible case, the driven Dr. Jung (Michael Fassbender) takes the unbalanced yet beautiful Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightley) as his patient in A DANGEROUS METHOD. Jung’s weapon is the method of his master, the renowned Sigmund Freud. Both men fall under Sabina’s spell.

Official Synopsis: Writer/Director Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow, Black Snake Moan) delivers a new take of the beloved 1984 classic film, Footloose. Ren MacCormack (played by newcomer Kenny Wormald) is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out and Bomont's local councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister's troubled daughter Ariel (Julianne Hough) in the process.
