Will Smith And Son To Star Together In New M. Night Shyamalan Flick


The family that works together, rakes in the big bucks together!

It's just been announced that three-fourths of the Smith clan have signed up to be a part of M. Night Shyamalan's latest sci-fi thriller. Will Smith and his son, Jaden, are set to star as the father-son duo who are stranded on an "abandoned and sometimes scary Earth" 1,000 years in the future.

Along with starring, Will is also set to produce the film alongside his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, James Lassiter, and Ken Stovitz. For those who are curious, the screenplay is by M. Night Shyamalan and Gary Whitta.

But hold up! What about Willow? Surely they can't exclude her from all the fun! What will she have to talk about on the red carpet?!

Hey, is anyone settled on a theme song yet? Huh? HUH?!

Natalie Portman Attached to Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity…Almost


Just confirm this deal already! Everything about this movie screams AMAZING!

Earlier this month, Angelina Jolie pulled out of Alfonso and Jonas Cuaron's sci-fi epic Gravity, and the filmmakers approached Natalie Portman about taking over the role.

Now, Portman is in active negotiations to secure the lead role, and it looks like it's nearly a done deal.

After Jolie's exit from the project, many actresses were rumored to be up for the role, including Rachel Weisz, Blake Lively, and most recently Sandra Bullock. We're thinking they're making the right move with Natalie.

The script was written by Alfonso and his son Jonas Cuaron, which we think is pretty cool. How often have we seen father/son writing teams? We can't think of all that many.

The story is about a woman who's the sole survivor of a space station crash, and wants to return home to her daughter. Sounds very reminiscent of other intense, isolation-themed movies such as Moon and Cast Away. We are totally on board!

Word going around is that Robert Downey Jr. will appear in the film as well. No details yet as far as the capacity of the role is concerned, but his involvement is generally a good thing.

We're pumped to hear more as the details arise!

What do U think of this project? Should Angie have taken the role?

Avatar Sequel Gets Tentative Release Date of 2014!

Filed under: Film Flickers


Thank God it won’t take 15 years to make like the first one!

And although four years may seem like a long time, James Cameron feels confident in his plans for the sci-fi trilogy.

"Right now, the thinking is that [films] two and three are going to be done together. They’ll be released separately, probably a year apart or maybe even two, but they’ll be done in a bunch.”

He hopes that his strategy will help prevent the failure that curses many big Hollywood sequels.

"I’m mapping out the story line right now, so there’s a proper arc that plays out over two films, but buttons nicely at the end of two, so you don’t get this horrible second-act Matrix feeling - you know: 'I’ve just sat through a three-hour movie and fuck all [that] happened at the end!'”

But don’t put your blue Avatar masks in the closet yet (we know you have them; no need to be shy)! Avatar is being re-released for a limited run on Friday with 9 extra minutes of never-before-seen footage!

Put on your 3D glasses and prepare to be blown away!

Inception's Cillian Murphy Joins JT & Minge Seyfried In New Sci-Fi Thriller


You know, we find Cillian Murphy creepily sexy and we're kind of excited to see him in more roles.

Cillian has just been casted alongside Justin Timberlake in then new sci-fi thriller I’m.mortal. Along with Minge Seyfried, the trio will tackle the story of the distant future, where scientists have devised a way to stop the aging process, but have created a world of corruption and greed for said immortality.

Sounds right up Cillian's ally. If only Leonardo DiCaprio could swoop in and steal Timberpussy's role. Then maybe JT's ego would get bruised and he would return to music, where he belongs!!!

Scarlett Vs. Blake


ScarJo better watch her back - there's a new starlet on the rise!

Supposedly, Blake Lively is gunning for a role in Alfonso Cuarón's upcoming sci-fi movie Gravity, even though Scarlett Johansson already verbally agreed to star in the film.

Blake is rumored to have approached Alfonso about the role, but he has his heart set on Scarlett to play an astronaut in the movie opposite Robert Downey, Jr.

We think Blake should show off her skills in Green Lantern before she starts trying to steal roles from Scarlett - her time on Gossip Girl hasn't really helped prove her cause!

Arcade Fire And Spike Jonze Go Sci-Fi

Filed under: Music MinuteFilm Flickers


Lately, The Arcade Fire are ablaze!

Their new album, The Suburbs, was released today, they’ve got a live Youtube concert on Thursday, and now they’re teaming up with Spike Jonze to make a sci-fi short film!

Here’s what Arcade Fire’s Win Butler had to say about the collaboration:

"Basically, we played Spike some music from the album and the first images that came to his mind had the same feeling as this idea for a science fiction film I had when I was younger. My brother and I and Spike wrote it together, which was really fun — it was like total amateur hour.”

And more from Butler:

"We shot it in Austin and a lot of kids are in the film, and it was great just hanging out with these 15-year-olds for a week and writing down all the funny things they said. It was cool to revert to being a 15-year-old for a little while."

We couldn’t get Arcade Fire’s song Wake Up out of our heads after all those Where the Wild Things Are trailers earlier this year. Should be interesting to see if this project has a similar impact.
