Sometimes the best thing about going to the movies is seeing the movie trailers. Other times … not so much. Here are five movie previews that I watched so you don’t have to. THE SMURFS From the director of BIG MOMMA’S HOUSE and SCOOBY-DOO is another movie that will make you make you wish you were never born. This movie looks so smurfin’ bad. I would rather eat a smurfin’ gun than see it. Neil Patrick Harris deserves better than this. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN OK, I’m not going to lie to you, dear readers. I am going to see this …Read On »

Comic-Con 2011 News: Spider-Man will not be a part of any future THE AVENGERS movies according to producer Avi Arad

This one is a kind of a no-brainer, but for anyone wondering if the Spider-Man character would ever appear in a future THE AVENGERS team-up movie, don’t hold your breath. First of all, even though Marvel (and now Disney) owns the character, it’s currently licensed to Sony Pictures, which makes it harder to extract him for a movie at another studio. However, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN producer Avi Arad at a press event during Comic-Con 2011 says there’s another reason for not putting him a big movie like that either. “There’s the team-ups [in the comics] that keep the publishing going, …Read On »

With THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN rebooting the film franchise with new Peter Parker Andrew Garfield and new director Marc Webb, at today’s 2011 Comic-Con press event producer Avi Arad discussed why they went the reboot route as opposed to a fourth chapter in the Sam Raimi/Tobey Maguire incarnation of the franchise. “Most of you are aware we started on the way to do another movie, but our director [Raimi] and cast and us realized there wasn’t enough newness,” says Arad. “There was not a new story to tell. As we started to discuss this movie and what we wanted to make, …Read On »

Alas, Steve doesn’t meet the U.S. Army’s health requirements, but he is ultimately brought into an experimental unit. Thanks to a …Read On »

How faithful is the new RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES prequel? Well, director Rupert Wyatt, while speaking to the press at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con, says it’s always a challenge to make a film of this ambition. “It’s never from my point of view as a director,” says Wyatt. “It was never my intention to be a slave to the franchise as it were. The writers presented us with a script that is very, very respectful and subtly acknowledging the mythology, but it’s very much an origin story in the real sense of the world. It’s the …Read On »

With Justin Timberlake purposely putting his own successful music career on hold to focus on a budding movie career, it’s been quite surprising how fast that career has taken off with a major role in last year’s THE SOCIAL NETWORK to this year’s roles in the comedies as BAD TEACHER and this Friday’s FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS. Now Timberlake steps into the science-fiction genre with Andrel Niccol’s latest film IN TIME about a world where the rich can buy the ability to live longer, while the poor have to fight to survive. In the film, Timberlake is Will Salas who is …Read On »

While speaking to the press at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con, LOST co-creator Damon Lindelof spoke about scripting the new Ridley Scott directed film PROMETHEUS, which depending on who you speak to, is a thinly veiled prequel to Scott’s 1979 ALIEN. In coming up with a title, Lindelof says he wanted to come up with something “pretentious” like INTENTION. “PROMETHEUS makes the movie sound much smarter and much better than my original title EXPLOSION,” Lindelof says with a grin. Lindelof does go on to say that the title is very key into the story of the film, since Prometheus was …Read On »
