Exodus was a major disappointment. Seems like Ridley Scott may be starting to lose his touch.
I would still love to see Brad Bird tackle this.

This isn't encouraging. Earth to Echo was weak.
renodc wrote a comment about the news item Constantine in Jeopardy as NBC Stops Production
Constantine has been solid and maintained it's audience. This doesn't seem to make since to stop it's production especially being a Friday night success which for most shows has been a death sentence.
Didn't get to see Mockingjay. Was it any good?
I saw it got a movieweb 88%, but there was only three reviews and of course, as is par for the course on movieweb reviews, two of them were by mouth breathing $h!+ for brains, who seemingly can't grasp the concept that reviewing a movie actually requires seeing the movie first. One idiot admitted he didn't see it but was basing his review of the film on the fact that he read the book. The one actual legitimate review said it felt like they were stretching the book thin to make room for another film.
GI Joe is much more suited to Campbell's style of directing than Green Lantern was.

The project's concept itself must be really good to garner the interest of Fincher, Boyle, Bale, DiCaprio and Fassbender. Makes me wonder if Sony has been the reason the project has lingered and lost some of the aforementioned. If so, I wonder if they may be able to lure Bale back to the project. Not taking anything away from Fassbender, but Bale just fits the role better in my opinion.

I'm skeptical that this is legit. The grammar in this synopsis is terrible.

@junior Roberts In the TV series, Steve Austin gets bionic enhancements in both legs, right arm and left eye. Unlike Robocop, he looks normal on the outside and there is no outside control mechanism that manages his function. He's in complete control. He's sort of like an Americanized James Bond with internal bionics that give him superhuman strength and speed.
The title doesn't feel all that inspired. I was hoping for something like Dark Side Rising or Beware the Dark Side or Imperial Resurrection. The Force Awakens just doesn't resonate. I'm sure it will grow on me.
Fassenbender doesn't even remotely favor Steve Jobs.
Love it!! Great choice!!!

It's my understanding that the studio of the film being shown only has control over two slots that are guaranteed to them by the theater chain. The rest of the slots, which is usually about four more, the theater chain has ultimate control over and can put them where they want but usually negotiate with other studios to put trailers in that slot for a price, so Star Wars and Batman v Superman could theoretically both get attached to the Hobbit.
The only reason I could see Disney not wanting to put Star Wars in with the Hobbit is that realistically Star Wars has such enormous name recognition that it really doesn't need to be marketed that much and theater chains most likely will negotiate for a pretty high price for a slot with the Hobbit.
renodc wrote a comment about the news item Benedict Cumberbatch Is Doctor Strange!
To me, this is bittersweet. C*mberbatch is a favorite of mine, but in the comic world villains are so important and very few actors can actually pull off a good villain and I was hoping C*mberbatch would take on one of those roles in either the Marvel or DC Universes. He'll be great as Dr. Strange, but I just feel like there was something better for his range as an actor. Personally, I haven't liked any of the "official" suggested names before C*mberbatch, and I found it comical that some of the actors people would like to see take on the role seemingly were only being suggested because they had a black goatee. Colin Farrell? Seriously?
I've always been a big fan of Clive Owen and I really thought he would be a good fit especially after watching some episodes of "The Knick" a medical period drama by Steven Soderbegh that Owen is absolutely fabulous in.
Viggo Mortenson was another choice I thought might be a good fit as well. He's an extremely underrated actor.
Even though, I'm not a big fan, Adrien Brody was another one I thought might be an interesting choice.
I get so sick of this need for a "pat on the back" for being socially conscious. DC needs to find the best possible director that fits whatever their vision is for Wonder Woman in this universe they are building. It shouldn't matter if the director is female or male. The most important thing is to maximize the chances of putting out a quality film. Screw this social awareness garbage.
renodc wrote a comment about the news item BOX OFFICE: Ouija Wins with $20 Million
Wick was great. Go see it, and for the love of God please don't blow your money on that heaping pile of $h!+ Ouija. I can't believe people pay theater prices for that garbage.
Hope the domestic audience actually shows up for Part 2. Pacific Rim was barely able to muster $100 million domestically. The only reason we're getting a 2nd installment is bc the foreign box office blew up.
My first concept of why Murray used the script as a reason he turned this down was that he had gotten to a point in his career that he felt like a Ghostbusters film was beneath him, but after reading his comments it seems like there may be some feeling from him that the studio doesn't really care about a good story but just wants to force the film into theaters for financial reasons only, like they did with Ghostbusters 2, which if you read between the lines Murray pretty much said sucked. Sounds like Ghostbusters 2 left a bad taste in his mouth and right now all he's reading are scripts at the level of the sequel and until they present him with a script at the level of the first film then he's not doing it.
@josh I agree with @ObiWanShinobi
Voice tells a lot about the geographical origin of a character and McConaughey, who has never really shown an ability to alter his voice, has a pretty strong Texas accent mixed with a slight twinge of "stoner". If you think of the character Dr. Strange, one of the last places you would think he would originate from is Texas.
