Have you ever wondered how Hitchcock created the famous crop duster scene in North by Northwest? Or what Charles Heston’s acting journals from Ben Hur might look like? Warner Bros. is launching a new initiative called Inside the Script, which will offer illustrated interactive eBooks of classic movie scripts like Casablanca, An American in Paris […]
I had the pleasure of attending the 36th Annual Cleveland International Film Festival in March, which just so happened to be the first film fest I have attended. Unfortunately, due to a tight weekend schedule, I was only able to attend one film, but the one that I selected was the absolute right choice. I was […]
Sony’s Think Like a Man remains at the top of the box office report after its second week in theatres, though the film dropped its total by 46% down to $18 million. Sony also managed to take the runner-up spot this week with The Pirates! Band of Misfits. And while The Hunger Games slid to fourth this week, […]
Even though Snow White and the Huntsman has yet to hit theaters, Universal is hoping they have a franchise on their hands by fast tracking a sequel. Deadline is reporting that David Koepp is in discussions to write the script for the sequel so that director Rupert Sanders will be able to make it the […]
Comedian turned filmmaker Bobcat Goldthwait has built his cinematic career on toying with an audience’s expectations. With the possible exception of his directorial debut ‘Shakes the Clown’ (where he was still finding his voice), he’s taken to throwing his viewers for a loop. ‘Sleeping Dogs Lie’ was more a look at contemporary relationships and the […]
Holy cow, can you believe we are down to just five contestants on American Idol? This may not be my favorite top five in Idol history (that award goes to Season Five), but I believe all the remaining contestants will continue to wow us with some astute song choices and powerful performances. It’s no surprise […]
You know, I like an open-ended conclusion as much as the next guy (and sometimes more), but I do have the pre-requisite that the film earn its ending. ‘Sound of My Voice’ is an example of a good movie that doesn’t earn its abrupt and supposedly shocking ending. Up until the final moments of the […]
The release of ‘Prometheus’ is getting closer and closer, so it makes perfect sense that the promotional material for the film is ramping up. The latest is a new Trailer that runs almost 3 minutes long and gets way into the plot of the film, potentially veering into spoiler territory, depending on how much you […]
MGM, looking to pull itself out of financial woes, is remaking two of its most famous horror titles. While a remake of Carrie is already in production, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Sam Raimi has been attached to be the producer on a remake of Poltergiest, with a script by Pulitzer Prize winning writer David […]
It never stops around here. We’re taking questions for this week’s edition of the Awards Circuit Podcast. Please copy all questions in the comment section. Make them great!
Wow, where do I even begin? This was the James Cameron of weeks here The Awards Circuit. We delivered big, and as a result our success was tantamount to Camerons’ Avatar and Titanic in my book. As you can see, The Awards Circuit has undergone a huge transformation, evolving what you all know and love […]
If one didn’t know this already, Judd Apatow likes his films to be on the long side, both the ones he directs and the ones he produces. It’s hard to make a comedy sustain its energy when you’re approaching 2 hours, but Apatow has had good luck in that regard. ‘The Five-Year Engagement’ is further […]
A big sigh of relief is necessary, as we finally get to see an official trailer for the upcoming indie film, ‘Peace, Love and Misunderstanding.’ The film had its premiere at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, and was picked up by IFC Films for a 2012 release date. I was worried that this indie […]
Although they’ve yet to replace Rich Ross, Disney has begun to determine what the post-Ross era will look like. Deadline is reporting that Disney has acquired the rights for a big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book and hired Henry Selick to direct. Selick is most famous for directing stop motion animation films […]

The Oscars are far behind and in front of us. As we start rattling our minds around awards season prospects like “Lincoln,” “The Great Gatsby,” and “The Hobbit,” MTV is gearing up to announce their nominees for the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on May 1.
We are in the midst of our 4 year anniversary revamp. Beginning with the homepage and working our way around the site during the weekend. Please bear (or bare, I’ve been arguing with many people on which one it really is) during this time. Thanks for patience and readership!
Almost there, folks. One week from today will be the official start of the Summer Movie Season: Franchise Flicks, Explosions, CGI, the whole works. As we say goodbye to the general dumping ground (with the occasional peppering of gems between them), we say hello to four new films debuting today: A film about a wedding…a […]
It’s often said that hindsight is 20/20, and that by looking to the past we’re able to see things with perfect clarity. When it comes to the Oscars, hindsight is often used to criticize choices that were made by Academy members in a given moment. By looking over the entire history of the Academy Awards, […]
The buzz for this film out of Sundance has been deafening. Pictures of the poster have been floating around the internet for a while but this is official now. Am I underestimating the film in terms of Oscar prospects? Check out the full image after the jump.
There’s no doubt that I was in the minority in praising Judd Apatow’s last film ‘Funny People’ as his best yet, but I know I’m not in the minority of loving his two previous flicks ‘The 40 Year Old Virgin’ and ‘Knocked Up’. Today we bring you the first trailer for his newest directorial work […]
The promo machine for the summer blockbusters is in full effect. After presenting footage at Cinema Con, Universal has released the first track from the Snow White and the Huntsman called “Breath of Life.” The song is written and performed by Florence + the Machine. With those ominous drums and Florence’s voice and choral arrangements, the […]
Via The Hollywood Reporter–Stellan Skarsgard and Hiroyuki Sanada have signed on to join the cast of The Railway Man. The film which also stars Jeremy Irvine and Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth, details the true story of Eric Lomax, “a victim from World War II’s “Death Railway” sets out to find those responsible for […]

After showing her acting mettle in two David Fincher films, The Social Network and her Oscar nominated turn in Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Rooney Mara has been seriously in demand. She’s just finished filming a movie with Terrence Malick and is currently shooting The Bitter Pill with Steven Soderbergh and has added two more […]
This year was the first time that I’ve ever attended the Tribeca Film Festival, despite it taking over numerous theaters in Lower Manhattan every year around this time. The screenings/after-parties are interesting enough, but I’m always most interested in what the award winners are. Well, the 2012 winners have been announced, and after the jump […]
I was planning to hold my tongue on this issue, but I keep getting asked about it these past few days, so I’m going to bite the bullet and rant away. At CinemCon, a number of theater exhibitors discussed potentially relaxing the rules of the movies that forbid texting. They seem to think that they’re […]
It was a rather safe bet that Darren Aronofsky’s next film ‘Noah’ would not be a one man show, so it was only a matter of time until the cast expanded beyond leading man Russell Crowe. There were (and still are) rumors of Liam Neeson taking the part of an antagonist/villain of some sort in […]
While the announcement of films playing at the Cannes Film Festival did not include ‘The Gangster Squad’, a piece by The Playlist suggests that Sean Penn is coming to Cannes with a new performance, and since he only has one film in the can…well…you do the math. This could possibly make a lot of sense […]
Whenever Quentin Tarantino releases a movie it’s sure to be anticipated every step of the way. Slowly but surely information is being released about the movie. Last week, we got an official synopsis and today, EW has released some fantastic new images from the film of stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jaime Foxx and Christoph Waltz.

Even though she just won her third Oscar, Meryl Streep doesn’t seem to be slowing down. In the newly released trailer for Great Hope Springs, we see Streep play one half of an aging couple (with Tommy Lee Jones as her husband) who have grown apart. They turn to a marriage counselor, played by Steve […]
