Movie News Today

Johnny Depp will play Dr. Seuss in an upcoming bio-pic which he'll also produce. Sounds interesting enough.

The Washington Post has an excellent article on the life of Steve Jobs with particular attention paid to his work with Pixar. Very cool.

Director Peter Travis has been kicked out of post-production work on his Judge Dredd film. So, basically, we can go ahead and write this one off a full year before it hits theaters.

John Likes Movies gives us five movie politicians worthy of your vote. Co-signed, though I'd add Matt Damon in The Adjustment Bureau to the list.

The trailer for next year's The Raven came out this weekend and it looks...yeesh...not so good. I want good things for you, John Cusak.


  1. Wow. I'm super excited for The Raven. That trailer is impressive and so suspenseful.

    and congrats to Hugh Jackman and Real Steel. Who'd've guessed it'd do so much better than the rest of the movies!?!

  2. I would like to believe The Raven will be good but I obviously wasn't sold on the trailer.

    The turnaround for Real Steel is staggering in my mind. 2 weeks ago I think everyone expected it to tank.
