Guillermo del Toro Shooting Small, Black and White Film Before ‘Pacific Rim 2′

Cinephile-favorite filmmaker Guillermo del Toro  just recently announced that Pacific Rim 2 is set for a 2017 release, and he’s in post-production for Crimson Peak, but that doesn’t mean that’s all he has on his plate. In a conversation with Collider, del Toro revealed he’s planning a new piece that will be filmed before the massive Pacific Rim sequel.

The film will be a very bizarre, small, black and white production. Considering he does a remarkable job doing just that in his large, colorful films like Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy, this new one should be something else. Summarizing …

Alex Turner and Miles Kane Writing 1960s Film Inspired by ‘X-Men’

If you’ve ever been watching X-Men and thought, “Boy, I would love to hear Alex Turner’s voice singing over this scene,” today is your lucky day.

According to NME, Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner and Miles Kane, aka The Last Shadow Puppets, are writing an X-Men-inspired film that’s set in the 1960s. “It’s gonna have a sort of X-Men kind of vibe and sort of set in the ’60s, but I can’t give any more away than that,” said Kane. Neither of the two will star in the movie, he added, “but we may have a little cameo.”…

‘Paranormal Activity 5′ Pushed to 2016

For better or for worse, some horror films see more sequels than others. Paranormal Activity is one of those. It seems its creators, however, have found themselves in a dry well.

When Paramount Pictures revealed they were planning to release Paranormal Activity 5, they admitted they were having trouble finding an innovative, interesting new take. The film was pushed from an October 2013 release date to October 2014. Now with only four months until that goal, Paramount Pictures have pushed the release date back yet again. According to EMEA Edward Ryan, the fifth official film in the franchise will …

Watch the Trailer for Elliott Smith Documentary ‘Heaven Adores You’

Last year we took a moment to remember one of music’s most important icons, Elliott Smith, on the tenth anniversary of his passing with his best songs. With a mysterious personality and an incredible knack for songwriting, Smith’s work soon left Portland and became mainstream after “Miss Misery” (Good Will Hunting) got a Best Original Song Oscar nomination in 1998. Now, years later, Smith’s legacy will be covered in Nikolas Rossi’s new documentary, Heaven Adores You.

The Kickstarter-funded film is an “intimate, meditative inquiry into the life and music of Elliott Smith” from his birth to …

‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Sequel in the Works

It’s been two decades since the 1993 hit Mrs. Doubtfire first hit screens, and now, seemingly out of nowhere, it’s going to get a sequel.

Director Chris Columbus and Robin Williams will return and Elf writer David Berenbaum will be penning the script. The original film saw Williams, a struggling actor and newly divorced father, take on the persona of a Scottish nanny named Euphegenia Doubtfire in order to be closer to his children. It’s pretty hard to forget the burning fat suit and tire-squashed face mask that helped the film pull in $219 million domestically, $222 million internationally, a …
