Movie News Today

JJ Abrams has finally turned his attention to the "Star Trek" sequel and production could get underway in the near future. The film has, however, been moved from its summer 2012 date and no one's exactly sure where it'll end up at this point. Can't wait for this movie but at the same time I like that they're going to take their time and get it right.

This came down a couple of days ago but Frank Darabont has stepped away from AMC's "The Walking Dead." Shocking, potentially terrible news. "Dead" is half way through shooting of its follow up to the surprisingly great first season and Darabont was the perfect guy for the job.

If, like me, you missed out on Comic Con last week, check out IEF's 5 Biggest Stories from Comic Con and Flix Chatter's recaps of Day 1 and Day 2 and Day 2 Part 2.

Top 10 films provides a list of the 10 best poker movies. Personally I'd put "Rounders" much higher but good to see "The Sting", one of my 10 favorite movies, get the love it deserves.

Tom Clift provides a nice editorial on 3D. Check it out!

Exterminate All Rational Thought delivers an excellent review of Wim Wenders' absolutely brilliant film, "Wings of Desire." Must see and must read.

The trailer for Cameron Crowe's Pearl Jam documentary arrived this week. So stinking stoked about this.


  1. "The Sting" really started my love for con artist movies. One of my favorites, too.

    I had not heard of "Wings of Desire." I'm going to have to watch that one.

  2. Wings of Desire is a masterpiece. Love it.
