Movie News Today

Magnolia Pictures (funded by Mark Cuban) has purchased the rights to the Joaquin Phoenix mockumentary "I'm Still Here" and will release it in September. I admit it's absurd but I'm a bit fascinated by this whole thing. Phoenix is either completely delusional or completely genius but either way, he's committed.

OK, let me preface this by saying this comes from the same site that bashed on "Sherlock Holmes", which was great, and "The A-Team" which I loved. So perhaps we should take it with a grain of salt. But... Movieline HATES "Inception."

In other "Inception"-related news... Empire has been doing a great series on Christopher Nolan, getting some of the actors he's worked with to discuss the film process under the visionary director. Followers of this site know that I praise Nolan and Gary Oldman as much as anyone in the world. So when I saw that today's installment was Gary Oldman talking about Christopher Nolan... I'm not going to lie, I might have peed a little.

After unceremoniously sending Edward Norton to the curb, Marvel is rumored to be courting Mark Ruffalo to play the Hulk. My take? Ruffalo is a good enough actor but he does the same exact thing in every film and I'm tired of it.

I really don't want to report this but I guess it's required. Pixar is apparently developing a "Cars" spinoff called "Planes." Sounds great, right? Well just let the other shoe drop, friend. This new development is going to be (gag) a straight-to-DVD production. That's all I'm saying.
