‘Saw’ Reboot Coming From Chris Rock (Yes, That Chris Rock)

The Saw movies always ended with a big twist, but here’s a real-life twist I don’t think anyone saw coming. Chris Rock – yes, that Chris Rock – is set to star in and produce a new Saw reboot, with franchise filmmaker Darren Lynn Bousman returning to direct. Rock came up with the idea for the film himself, and despite his presence, this isn’t going to be a comedy. Instead, the actor has cooked up something “really intense and twisted.” Ready for more Saw? Actually, let me amend that. Ready fo...

‘Coming to America’ Sequel Recruits Oscar-Winning ‘Black Panther’ Costume Designer Ruth E. Carter

Coming to America is making a fashionable comeback.

So it’s appropriate that for the Coming 2 America costumes, the sequel is looking to the costume designer of yet another fictional wealthy African nation. Ruth E.

The 10 Best James Earl Jones Movies

The 10 Best James Earl Jones Movies James Earl Jones may have the second-most recognizable voice in the history of American cinema after Orson Welles himself. His vocal performance as Darth Vader in five of the Star Wars franchise films — and countless other, smaller projects — has been as critical to film at large as it has to his own career. His turn as Mufasa in The Lion King is near as significant. So much so, in fact, that he is slated to reprise the role in the Jon Favreau-direct...

Review: The Trouble with You

— by RON WILKINSON — The snarky sequence backing the opening credits would have made Leslie Nielsen blush. Extracting, satirizing and francofying moves from Bruce Lee to Eddie Murphy, the action starts here. In fact, this pitch perfect farce on the good, the bad and the romantic never lets up. That is, until the final […]

Oscar Schmoscar: Get Your Priorities Straight!

Oscar Schmoscar: Get Your Priorities Straight! ADDENDUM November 2011: So, no one listens to me and Billy Crystal is back hosting the Oscars. Let me guess. He will open with one of his lovely (zzz) songs. Surely the lyrics will include a dig to Brett Ranter and Eddie Murphy along with the other nominees. I smell a dig to Brad Pitt and George Clooney already. Heck, maybe I should help him write the lyrics. All I know is that they better not linger too long on the Billy Crystal of it all and get...

Sebastian Stan talks about working opposite Nicole Kidman in 'Destroyer' and playfully dodges some Marvel questions

This Week in Photography Books: Charles Traub

  My kids love the Beatles. Can’t get enough, really. (My son in particular.) Who doesn’t love the Beatles, though? Right? Those guys might well have been the four most-likable-mugs the world has ever seen. (You’d have to have quite the cold, dead heart not to enjoy some chunk of their canon.) Honestly, I listen to that shit all the time. I love that Beatles channel on the Sirius radio. One time, riding with my son, we actually heard a fan takeover on the station. Some Baby-Boomer-Jewish-guy bid...

Why Kevin Hart Was the Wrong Choice to Host the Oscars (Column)

I’m not a person who tends to have a censorious attitude toward stand-up comedians. One of their jobs is to give voice to the audacious, the outrageous, the rudely incorrect. If we looked back, in hindsight, and vetted comic artists from Lenny Bruce to Richard Pryor to George Carlin to Sandra Bernhard to Eddie Murphy […]
