The Wachowskis' Cloud Atlas Gets A Release Date

Cloud atlas release date

It's been a while since we've seen any movies directed by the duo behind The Matrix, but sci-fi fans will be happy to hear that The Wachowski's next film will hit theaters this fall.

Cloud Atlas, an adaptation of David Mitchell's critically acclaimed novel, will be released domestically on October 26.

Halle Berry stars alongside Tom Hanks, Hugh Grant and Agent Smith himself, Hugo Weaving.

The film consists of six different stories set in a different time and place, which ultimately connect. Even better than the unique plot will be seeing the A-list actors portray multiple roles as the film progresses through the ages.

How U feelin' about this one??

Filed under: Film Flickers

Prometheus ratingRidley Scott's highly anticipated prequel of sorts to Alien is hitting theaters on June 8th, but Prometheus still doesn't have a rating yet.

It's currently being decided on by the ratings board, but Fox studio chief Tom Rothman revealed at CinemaCon this week that regardless of what rating the film gets, they ARE NOT cutting a single frame.

It sounds like there is a good chance it will be rated R, but he's not worried about losing out on box office dollars and told the press:

Waaaay back in March 2010, author Zhoe Shaomou was claiming that James Cameron took the idea for Avatar directly from his 1997 novel Tale of the Blue Crows…and he was looking for $145 million in copyright infringement money.

Jodie Foster To Give Up Acting, Wants To Direct Science Fiction Flick

Filed under: Film FlickersJodie Foster

We guess she wants to focus on directing from now on!

Jodie Foster, who just finished up taking the directorial reigns on the upcoming Mel Gibson drama, The Beaver, has revealed that she wants to give up acting for good, and has even signed on to direct a new science fiction film!

She explains:

"I've reached that point where I don't want to act very much anymore. I am much more interested in holding off on acting, after 45 years as an actor. It's a long period of time to do the same thing. [Her new science fiction project] There's a family element to it, but it's much more a genre movie. I'd like to do that because that's a world I live in as an actor but I've never really gone to as a director. It's not anywhere close to being ready. [I don't write], so that always puts me at the mercy of some enormous talent that comes out of the woodwork that somehow has the same obsessions as me."

Well, seeing as she's set to appear in the film Elysium, we're relieved to know she's not giving up acting all-together, but think it's great that she's continuing to expand beyond her comfort zone and direct a genre piece!

Keep up the good work, gurl! We're excited to see your career progress down this path!
