Movie News Today

Neil Burger, director of "Limitless", will helm the production of a new take on "Bonnie and Clyde" that will apparently be much darker. Could be interested but I guess I should first get through the entirety of the original.

The character posters for next year's "Avengers" have been released and Empire provides a look the lot of them.

Because I can't get enough of "Harry Potter", Reelz Channel writes an open letter to JK Rowling. Co-signed.

Castor over at Anomalous Material presents his 20 funniest movies of all time. While I certainly don't agree overall, he took the time to make a list like this which I can never bring myself to do so check it out!

A Life in Equinox finishes up the "Greater Good" series in which a few bloggers picked a film that they'd wipe off the face of the earth in order to make the film industry better. Very cool idea.

On a sad note, it was announced today that Gordon and the Whale will shut down at the end of next month. Based right here in Texas, GATW has been one of my daily stops for movie news and reviews for the last year or two. They've also been responsible for my attendance at more than a few movie screenings and more importantly, they've made it seem possible for a joker like me to find a way to make something out of this movie writing thing. Good luck to all the writers and editors from GATW; your collaborative efforts of the last few years will be sorely missed around here.
