Though Ben Affleck is surely in training to put on the cape and cowl for his turn as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the upcoming 'Batman Vs. Superman' movie, the Oscar-winning filmmaker has just lined up his next directorial assignment. The catch is it's for the small screen, as he will be producing and helming the pilot for the new FOX show 'The Middle Man.'
When the 'Beverly Hills Cop' TV show failed to get off the ground, word was that Paramount might instead go with a new film installment of the franchise (which had been rumored for a while, with Brett Ratner supposedly set to direct it). The latest rumblings suggest a fourth film might happen, with Eddie Murphy reuniting with producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who was behind the first two movies.
Since Robert De Niro has been spoofing his mafia roles and tough guy image for more than a decade now, it shouldn't be surprising he's goofing on another of his signature roles (this time Jake La Motta) for a new comedy. In 'Grudge Match' he plays an over-the-hill boxer who returns to the ring to fight one of his toughest opponents, with Sylvester Stallone (playing on his Rocky Balboa character) as his rival.
A PG-13 'RoboCop' remake? That's what we're getting, and the first trailer plays up the familiar elements ("oh look, ED-209"), but also seems to put the focus on the role of free will in Alex Murphy (played by Joel Kinnaman), who becomes part man, part machine, and all cop.
Of all the TV shows to be turned into movies, 'The Fall Guy' actually makes sense to translate to the big screen, so color us excited that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is in talks to star in a big screen reboot with McG eyed to direct.
Now that the film has had a festival showing or two, Alfonso Cuaron's 'Gravity' is already the talk of the Oscar circuit. Considering the trailers make this look like an edge of your seat science fiction thriller, that must say something great about the movie. Here's the latest trailer, which plays up the film's incredible-looking special effects.
The directorial debut of Keanu Reeves, 'The Man of Tai Chi' seems like it should be a bigger deal. Is it that hard to sell "Neo directs a own kung-fu movie" to audiences? But like so many low budget films these days, it's going to premiere on Video on Demand later this month before getting a cursory theatrical release. You'd think there would be a market for such a film, but perhaps most people would rather watch it at home. Now there's an official trailer for the film's domestic release.
