  2. 'Star Wars' Buzz: Oscar Darling Stephen Daldry Tapped to Direct Solo Obi-Wan Movie
    Only one director of a Star Wars movie has been an Oscar nominee. That was George Lucas, who earned his first two Academy Award nominations for writing and directing American Grafitti (he received two more for writing and directing the first Star Wars). Now comes another possibility: according to The Hollywood Reporter, Stephen Daldry is in early talks to helm a solo spin-off prequel focused on Obi-Wan Kenobi.  Daldry was nominated in the Best Director category three times in a row, first for his feature debut, Billy Elliot, then for The Hours and The Reader. The latter two were also nominated for Best Picture, as was his fourth movie, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. And his average critical score on Rotten Tomatoes is...

  3. 'Mission: Impossible 6': Tom Cruise Breaks Ankle, But Will Not Delay Release
    Tom Cruise has always been extremely dedicated to the craft of acting. For example, he spent months learning how to be a bartender with flair for Cocktail and spent months learning to shoot pool like an expert hustler for The Color of Money. He was already a bankable and Academy Award-nominated actor when he took on the role of Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible (1996), which became a franchise and catapulted him into the top reaches of worldwide stardom. The series has also established him as a star who performs (most) of his own stunts, which is an essential element in a number of stunning action sequences. Earlier this year, shortly before the sixth Mission: Impossible installment began filming, we heard that Cruise had spent a year training for a particular action...

  6. Ron Howard Teases the Galactic Empire in 'Han Solo' -- Is Darth Vader Nearby?
    Ron Howard has shared another image from the set of the solo Han Solo movie. And this one might be the closest we'll get to a confirmation that Darth Vader is involved in the spin-off prequel. Rumors have been circulating lately that the Star Wars villain will make an appearance, but the reason for speculation -- that actor Spencer Wilding, who portrayed the Sith Lord in Rogue One, was joining the movie -- has been shot down. Of course, this wouldn't be the first time a correct guess was denied in order to protect movie secrets and spoilers. What we do know from the image, captioned "The Empire Looms Large," is that the Empire will be represented in some capacity. So little is known about the plot of the still-untitled movie that we...

  7. Daniel Craig Says "Yes," He's Returning as James Bond
    For the last four years, Daniel Craig has been, to use his own word, "coy" about whether he'd return for another James Bond movie. Rumors have gone every which way but confirmed, even with recent announcements of a release date and potential directors for the next 007 adventure. Well, last night the actor finally said "yes," he is still on board as the most famous spy character of all time.  He made the confirmation on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, admitting that he's been discussing the possibility for the last couple months but wanted to save the news for the CBS talk show. "We've just been trying to figure things out," he said. "I always wanted to. I needed a break." He also explained his infamous quote about...

  8. The Last Horror Blog: John Saxon, Bruce Campbell, 'Demon Hunter,' 'Die! Sitter! Die!' and More
    New In Horror John Saxon's A Nightmare on Elm Street prequel treatment turns up on eBay – Just when you thought you knew everything there was to know about Freddy Krueger, life throws you a curveball in the form of a treatment for an Elm Street prequel – one written by star John Saxon way back in 1987. Saxon (above in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors), famous for playing Nancy’s father Donald Thompson in the first and third entries in the series, apparently took a shot at crafting an origin story for the bastard son of a hundred maniacs – one that finds a young Krueger in human form and attempts to explain his madness. It’s hard to get much of a feel for the story, as the treatment turned up on eBay with only select...

  9. Female-Led 'License to Drive' Remake on Its Way
    Cast your mind back to the summer of 1988, when a teen comedy titled License to Drive opened quietly in movie theaters across the nation. It was no great shakes at the box office during its first week, finishing far behind Coming to America and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. But in a sequel-happy season -- it opened against three other sequels that week -- the funny and beguiling original struck familiar chords for younger moviegoers, eventually earning more than $22 million during its theatrical release. The film gained a new life after it arrived on videocassette later that year. What accounts for its appeal? At its heart, the teenage hero Les (Corey Haim) wants nothing more than to take Mercedes (Heather Graham) out on a date; in motor-driven Los Angeles in the 1980s, it would...
