He's one of the finest actors of his generation, breaking into the mainstream with his portrayal of the villainous Hannibal Lecter.

What makes Hopkins special isn't pretension or devotion to his craft, though. He's simply a consummate pro...

‘The Misfits’ Director Renny Harlin Shares His Filmmaker Origin Story, And His Biggest Regrets [Interview]

Renny Harlin has a lot to say about his movies. So much to say that, in what was supposed to be a career-spanning interview, we only touched on the early days of his career in a half-hour discussion. Harlin was fresh off directing a horror-thriller, The Refuge, and promoting his new comedic crime caper, The Misfits (now on VOD). The director’s latest, which stars Pierce Brosnan, is a light throwback to the action movies of the ’90s. Of course, the ’90s were a special time for Harlin. It’s when ...

Retrospective: How Different Shrek Would Have Been With Chris Farley

When Shrek was released back in May of 2001, few could have predicted how big of a smash hit the tale about a big, green grumpy ogre discovering his inner prince would eventually become.

Zack Snyder Wrote a ‘300’ Sequel That Turned Into a Movie About Alexander the Great, but Warner Bros. Turned it Down

We almost had ourselves a third 300 movie. Sort of. Zack Snyder, director of the first 300 and co-writer of the sequel 300: Rise of an Empire, recently revealed he wrote another 300 sequel that then turned into a love story about Alexander the Great and his general Hephaestion. However, Warner Bros. passed on the project, either because they didn’t like the script or because they don’t like Snyder, depending on who you ask (Snyder seems to think it’s the latter option). Zack Snyder’s 300, ad...

Oliver Stone JFK Documentary Turned Down by Netflix Headed to Cannes 2021

Oliver Stone is returning to the tangled, messy world of John F. Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories with a new JFK documentary headed to Cannes. Stone’s 1991 masterpiece JFK covered the assassination with all the urgency of a crackling thriller, and while the filmmaker’s approach is not what I’d call “factual,” it does make for an incredible movie. This new doc was first announced back in 2019, where it went by the title JFK: Destiny Betrayed. Stone revealed his new JFK documentary wa...

Oliver Stone Tells Spike Lee About His Own Original Pitch for ‘Da 5 Bloods,’ and Why He Couldn’t ‘Solve’ It

Spike Lee’s “Da 5 Bloods” captured a critical point of view lost from film. After decades of producing blockbuster war stories and award-winning battle scene epics, the story of the Black Vietnam veteran has been largely neglected by Hollywood. Lee’s Netflix film changed that by putting the story of four 60-something veterans reuniting in Vietnam […]
