Usually when we hear talk about a remake or reboot, it's studios who are gunning for the thing. We don't often hear that an Oscar-winning actor is the one pursuing a reboot. But alas, Jamie Foxx is said to be "aggressively pursuing" the role of the comic-book character Spawn in Todd McFarlane's long-awaited reboot.

At the moment a lot of fans are worried about The Amazing Spider-Man 2. We understand that it's been a trend for years for them to use around two villains in order to heighten the suspense in a superhero movie. But if you've already got an estimated three villains in there, and are rumored to have a fourth just around the corner, that's overkill....

Django Unchained Movie Review
Another slow week for DVD and Blu-ray releases, but hey, hopefully your taxes are done, and you can pick up Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained. Otherwise, there’s a great classic 80’s film hitting the Criterion collection, and some classic Jackie Chan films.

ELECTRO
Since The Amazing Spider-Man’s release, we’ve been more than a little skeptical of The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s choice in villains—after all, if the first film could turn classic villain the Lizard into a goofy CGI monster stomping around New York with a comically erudite British accent, how poorly translated would Electro, a man whose body can conduct thousands of...

'Django Unchained': Will Smith Bailed Because The Role Wasn't Big Enough...

Here’s a fascinating case of an actor wildly mis-reading a script: in 2011, news broke that Quentin Tarantino wanted Will Smith to star as the titular character in his pre-Civil War era spaghetti western, Django Unchained.  Which made sense, in a way—Tarantino has a knack for oddball casting, and Will Smith starring in an actual good film is as odd as it gets these days (plus, as...

Hey, look, just because a film’s plot is totally resolved beyond a doubt and the arc of all the major characters therein are totally completed doesn’t mean the story’s really over, right?  Right?  Ok, look—Horrible Bosses was filmed for $35 million in 2011.  In made $300 million in worldwide box office.  It’s getting a sequel, and we should just accept that.

You’ve got to hand it to Mark Webb and company: in their efforts to truly distance their rebooted Spider-Man franchise from the Sam Raimi films, they’ve thus far steadfastly refused to use any of the same villains as Raimi (translation: all the good ones).  Instead, the Lizard was the underwhelming Big Bad for The Amazing Spider-Man; and last year it was...

We’ll say this for Jamie Foxx—the actor really doesn’t seem to worry that much about major movie spoilers.  While the plot of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (in which Foxx will star as Spidey villain Electro) isn’t exactly something the whole world is clamoring for, it’s still being kept relatively under wraps by the folks at Sony.  Or rather, it was kept under wraps,...

If you’ll recall, in the lead-up to production and principle photography of Quentin Tarantino’s highly anticipated western Django Unchained, much was made of the fact that the iconoclastic and mercurial director’s desire to cast Will Smith in the role of Django, an escaped slave who teams up with a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) to rescue his wife from a plantation owner...
