Is Darren Aronofsky’s next film ‘Moonfall’?

In spite of the fact that the title looks like an awkward mash-up of two different James Bond movies and the storyline makes the film sound like the plot of an intentionally bad movie you would see inside a movie that was satirizing the stupidity of Hollywood, The Wrap is reporting that David Weil’s sci-fi more »

A “Star Wars” skeptic on the leaked plot details

I’m going to be honest with you good people. I don’t like “Star Wars” and never – not once – in my bitter, loveless and angry life did I ever like “Star Wars”. So to all of you hardcore “Star Wars” fans out there, consider what I’m about to write a warning: “Star Wars: Episode more »

John Cleese to play villain in an unauthorized ‘Baywatch’ movie

Eric Idle may be Monty Python’s slightly less sad equivalent to Chevy Chase, he may be the cynical once-funnyman who will never stop flaying the rotting carcass of what was once the most daring and innovative sketch comedy groups in history.

The Latest Trailer for Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Zero Theorem’ is Here
