It appears they're signing up the hottest little number to wear an earpiece - everyone's favorite Uhura. Hollywood Reporter has it that Zoe Saldana is up for the role.
Sounds and looks good to me. I'm still skeptical about this whole thing, but we'll see. I certainly like the rumors that they're trying to nail down Russell Crowe to play the villain. If that happens I'm on board 100%. But I… Continue

After seeing STARDUST I was excited to hear that Matthew Vaughn would be directing the THOR
movie. I feel even better after reading what he has to say about the project:“Marvel were so surprised to see this other side of me with Stardust,”
recalls Matthew Vaughn of his initial meeting to discuss his vision for
the God of Thunder. “They actually said to me, ‘You are going to make
Thor more macho? Right?’ Well, don’t worry – Thor’s not going to be
wearing a… Continue

ANSWER: He's too damn old to running around firing RPGs at people. At least that's what the studio thinks.
For the 4th installment of the FIRST BLOOD/ Rambo series, titled JOHN RAMBO

This sounds more like a pitch for a movie than a news headline from a real story. But as with most 'real' stories, it's not nearly as exciting as the headline. I don't care how many times he's watched OCEAN'S 11-13, O.J. would have to have balls of adamantium to try to pull off such a high-profile crime--

This was ridiculously great news. Murder Party is this awesome little indie-that-could that played SXSW this past year, and was the one film I went to see twice. A true movie lovers horror film, it is the story of a complete loser idiot who finds an invitation to a Halloween party and decides to crash it. Unbeknownst to him, however, the party is nothing but a trap set up by an insane rich artist who is holding a $300,000 grant over the heads of a group of art students. Their… Continue

By now everybody knows that Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon have divorced...although, did you notice that nobody really cared? No constant coverage. No crawl on CNN. No drama queen teenagers tearfully pleading on YouTube for us to "Just leave them alone!!!"
Luckily you have the boys from Spill.com to bring you the story nobody asked for, in the

Okay, now this is odd. In the same week that we get news of a STEPFATHER remake...we get this.
This is the true story of one creepy, fucked up little man. A trucker and family man that may in fact be a serial killer. This is like the plot to three different horror movies all rolled into one, true story. And it gives one pause. When you start to put together the pieces of this, you have to wonder… Continue

Well, apparently, the Weinsteins are distributing the new… Continue
