Movie News Today

Michael Fassbender is being pursued for the Robocop remake. That...sounds...awesome. Yes, please.

Karl Urban will return to the role of Vaako in the third Riddick film. Urban is underrated in my book as is the Riddick series. Glad to see him stick around.

Blake Lively will play the lead in the film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Lively's alright as long as she's not asked to do too much, like an accent. Wait...

Fox will look to adapt Isaac Asimov's The Caves of Steel into a movie. I haven't read this particular book but you know if Asimov is involved, it's got to have something to do with robots either becoming our friends or trying to kill us.

This year keeps getting better for Jessica Chastain who has been cast opposite Tom Cruise in the sci-fi thriller Horizons. I seriously had never heard of Chastain before this year. Wow.

The Star Wars Blu Ray set is breaking all kinds of sales records so I'm pretty mad at all of you.

Make sure you head over to Flix Chatter for Ruth's reviews of the various films seen at the Twin Cities Film Festival.

Big Thoughts From a Small Mind takes a brief look at the career of Pete Postlethewaite, one of the great character actors of all time.


  1. Totally out of support for you and your letter to George, I have not bought the Star Wars Blu-Ray set. I'm here for you.
