How close are we from a society similar to the movie “Minority Report?” Technology today has allowed us to gather and analyze data to reduce crime and even predict when they will occur. Here is an infographic exhibiting the reality in the future of criminology.
It was bound to happen eventually. Now Shia LaBeouf has said he won’t be back for another Transformers movie, the rumor mill claims that Rosie Huntington Whitely’s boyfriend Jason Statham is set to take over…
According to Showbiz Spy, Jason Statham is being lined up to take over as lead character in the next Transformers movie. Apparently, the fantastic box office takings since the movie opened last Wednesday have convinced Paramount to move ahead with a fourth instalment, and the British star is their top pick! As usual, take the following (along with the apparent plans for a fourth movie) with a pinch of salt…
For years, Steven Spielberg has been trying to mount a biopic of Abraham Lincoln, but with intended star Liam Neeson aging out of the role, many assumed that the project would never get off the ground. Today, though, Spielberg announced that he will begin shooting
Mike Fleming at Deadline.com has an exclusive report that Steven Spielberg will be directing the movie version of the Daniel H. Wilson novel (to be published in 2011) about an apocalyptic robot uprising. The script will be written by Drew Goddard.
“Robopocalypse embodies an imaginative story of a robot rebellion unleashed against the human race,” said Mark Sourian, who’s announcing the project with his Reliance co-prexy Holly Bario. “This is a project we immediately sparked to and with Steven directing it we knew it was in the best possible hands to bring it to worldwide audiences.”
Says Deadline, “It puts Spielberg back into the large scale terrain that is important in his relationship with Reliance, because it is the kind of movie that can succeed on a global tent pole scale. Spielberg has two pictures he directed that are in post-production, Tin Tin: The Secret of the Unicorn will be distributed in the U.S. on December 28, 2011 with War Horse following 5 days later. This might seem like a lot of action for one director, but remember, this is Steven Spielberg, and he has multi-tasked successfully before. Like when he shot Jurassic Park and then moved directly into Schindler’s List. He turned out a summer blockbuster, followed later in 1993 by the film that won the Academy Award for Best Picture.”
Seeing Michael J. Fox recreate the ‘Back To The Future’ teaser for the Scream Awards has us a little nostalgic.
But did you know that Michael J. Fox wasn’t even originally cast as the star of the 1985 film? Eric Stoltz was the first choice but producers decided to recast the role five weeks into the film’s production because they believed something was missing.
See footage of Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly as well as Robert Zemeckis, Steven Spielberg and Bob Gale explaining the switch below. The never before seen clip will be included on the extras for the DVD and Blu-ray release of the trilogy later this month.
