Joel and Ethan Coen's upcoming movie 'Hail, Caesar!' has not only landed a distribution deal with Universal, it's also netted Coen vets George Clooney and Josh Brolin to star in a tale of Hollywood and the tabloids of the '50s.
'Noah' is the first movie to release its 2014 Super Bowl ad, and now we're starting to get a look at the larger picture of the film. There's the familiar images of Russell Crowe preparing his ark, and looks at his family, but now we can see that fire is raining down from the heavens.
Though perhaps not thought of as a mega-blockbuster, 'Despicable Me 2' grossed $368 million domestically and $935 million worldwide, and is currently the 25th highest grossing film in America and 24th worldwide. So, no surprise, Universal has dated 'Despicable Me 3' for 2017.
Could 2014 be the year of the Kevin Costner comeback? The actor, who was in huge hits in the late eighties and early nineties, wore out his welcome with pictures like 'The Postman,' but after appearing in this year's 'Man of Steel,' he's got five starring roles lined up for next year, including 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,' '3 Days to Kill' and now 'Draft Day,' which just released its first trailer and poster.
Two days ago, it was announced that the revered holiday classic 'It's a Wonderful Life' was up to get a sequel called 'It's a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story.' But today, Paramount, who owns the rights to the original film and the short story on which the film was based, have said that it can't happen without their involvement and they're willing to get litigious over it.
Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most important figures in twentieth century America, which makes it odd that he's yet to receive the cinematic bio-pic treatment. Now it looks like Oliver Stone will bring his story to the big screen, with 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' star Jamie Foxx playing the famous civil rights leader.
Jon Favreau, the man behind the first two 'Iron Man' films and 'Cowboys and Aliens,' is looking to go the indie route with his next feature. Favreau is currently in negotiations to write, star and direct the indie film 'Chef.'
When 20th Century Fox was founded in 1935 (the combination of Fox Films Corporation and Twentieth Century Pictures) it's possible that the founders of the company may have joked that their name could become obsolete in sixty five years, but it seems unlikely they were thinking that far ahead. Now -- seventy-eight years later -- the company's name has been changed to reflect the times and updated to 21st Century Fox for everything but the movie side of their business.
