Since publishing the last 'Calvin and Hobbes' comic strip on December 31, 1995, Bill Watterson, the notoriously private creator behind the series, has only granted one interview (an e-mail exchange with his hometown newspaper, the Plain Dealer, on the 15th anniversary of the strip). Many have tried to get in touch with Mr. Watterson over the years (and a documentary is scheduled to hit theaters this year on that very topic) and almost all have failed.
But, inexplicably, Watterson has emerged from hiding and spoke at length about the legacy of 'Calvin and Hobbes' and the potential for an animated movie.
Just as recently as earlier this year, Matt Damon was talking that a return to the 'Bourne' franchise that turned him into an A-list action star was highly unlikely. But, this is Hollywood and sometimes what is completely unlikely one day (like Ben Affleck as Batman), becomes a reality the next. And so, Matt Damon is in negotiations to return for another 'Bourne' film along with 'Bourne Ultimatum' director Paul Greengrass.
After 'The Lone Ranger' opened to poor reviews and disappointing box office, Johnny Depp was criticized for his recent acting choices. From 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4' to 'Dark Shadows,' many accused Depp of going through the motions, all-too-happy to cash his paycheck to star in whatever Disney or Tim Burton was asking him to star in, regardless of the quality.
In a related story, Johnny Depp is in final negotiations to return as The Mad Hatter in Disney's 'Alice in Wonderland 2.'
After the success of 'Alice in Wonderland' (over $1 billion - yes, with a B - worldwide), Disney has been hot to reboot their Disney princess movies. With a 'Sleepy Beauty' reboot on the way (in the form of Angelina Jolie's 'Maleficent'), the next live-action princess film on the way was scheduled to be 'Cinderella' but that was before director Mark Romanek abruptly left the project. What Prince Charming could step in and rescue the project before it turned into a pumpkin? Enter: Kenneth Branagh.
We caught a fleeting glimpse of multiple Oscar-nominee Amy Adams as Lois Lane in the 'Man of Steel' trailer (seen above) but today we get our first official look at Lois Lane from the upcoming Superman film. And? There are certainly a big change to the Daily Planet.
The search for a 'Star Wars: Episode 7' director is over. J.J. Abrams - the man who once said he would only be interested in 'Star Wars' as a paying moviegoer - will direct the first film in the new trilogy.
The Lance Armstrong doping scandal has captured the interest of the world over the past few days after the cyclist admitted to Oprah Winfrey that he used PEDs and cheated during all 7 of his once-triumphant Tour de France victories. It's the the kind of drama that makes for a great movie. And, as you might have expected, the Lance Armstrong doping scandal is going to do just that.
The 2013 Oscar nominations were announced this morning by Oscar host and 'Family Guy' creator Seth MacFarlane and 'Gangster Squad' star Emma Stone at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. MacFarlane is the first Oscar host to actually announce the nominees since Charlton Heston's turn in 1972. So who are the 2013 Oscar nominees? Who were the big surprises and the big snubs? Find out!
This is Matthew McConaughey. We know, right? McConaughey - frequently seen looking quite buff running on the beach - lost 40 pounds to play a man suffering from AIDS for the upcoming indie film 'The Dallas Buyer's Club' and looks almost unrecognizable while filming a scene on the New Orleans set.
'Alice in Wonderland' made over $1 billion worldwide so it was only a matter of time before Disney moved forward on a sequel. And now they're officially moving forward on 'Alice in Wonderland 2' and all we can wonder is...what took so long?
'Jumanji' was that mid-90s movie with Robin Williams that was ostensibly based on a board game but actually based on a book. It's a fine enough movie that made some money and showed off what were, at the time, some impressive visual FX. But we've come a long way since 1995 and now we're gonna get a new 'Jumanji' movie that will be updating for "modern times."
