Last week, we reported that efforts were underway to bring down the $250 million budget on Disney’s The Long Ranger in an attempt to salvage the project.  At the recent D23 Expo, Disney exec Rich Ross revealed to Deadline that he hasn’t counted the project out completely. “I’m hoping to do it. I’m certainly hoping. I think it’s a compelling story and no one wants to work with Jerry and Johnny more than me, so we’ll see how it works.” What Deadline finds compelling in that quote is the omission of director Gore Verbinksi’s name, who has long been attached to the…

Speaking to PC Gamer during Gamescom 2011, Bioware CEO Dr. Ray Muzyka spilled a few details on what we can expect for the future of the Dragon Age franchise. “What we need to do as developers is take that feedback from both sets of fans to heart and see about marrying that in future games in the Dragon Age franchise. I think that the team has actually got a great plan. I think the team is going to have some things that are going to surprise both sets of fans, both core fans and new fans with a marriage of…

Despite the opening of four new wide-release studio films on Friday, last week’s #2 spot holder The Help crushed the opposition, holding the #1 spot throughout the weekend and bringing in $20.5 million.  Another holdover from previous weeks, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, held onto the #2 spot with $16.3 million. Even with the higher price of 3D ticket sales, and the overall success that family films have seen at the box office this year, Dimension’s Spy Kids 4D was only able to collect $12 million.  Trailing closely behind was Conan the Barbarian, which Lionsgate had hoped would…

For me, one of the biggest surprised of Comic Con was the Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance panel.  I wasn’t terribly excited about the idea of doing another Ghost Rider film, but the enthusiasm of the directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, along with the insane footage they screened for us, changed my mind completely. Now, you can see for yourself, as the first official trailer for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance has been unveiled.  Check it out, along with the poster, below:   Nicolas Cage returns as Johnny Blaze in Columbia Pictures’ and Hyde Park Entertainment’s Ghost Rider: Spirit…

On Wednesday, we brought you photos of Chris Evans in costume as Captain America on the set of The Avengers.  Now, thanks to Splash News, we’ve got photos of Chris Hemsworth on set as he and Evans film a major battle sequence.  Check out the gallery below. And if you’re not satisfied with that, then we also have some video footage of this scene being shot:   Behold the power of Mjolnir! Man oh man, my poor little geek brain can barely process how awesome this all looks.  This movie can’t come soon enough.

It’s not often that I exit a theater with the sense that I have completely wasted the last two hours of my life, but such was the case with Marcus Nispel’s reboot of Conan the Barbarian.  While I’ll admit to showing up with low expectations, I don’t think anything could have prepared me for how truly, truly terrible this film was. Conan is born amidst a vicious battle between the Cimmerians and… well, the film is never quite clear on that particular detail.  His father, Corin (Ron Pearlman in a completely lifeless performance), cuts Conan from his mother’s belly so…

Yesterday, my brother and I were laptoppin’ it up side-by-side style on the couch, and out of the corner of my eye I noticed that he was messaging a strange-looking (by what I could tell from the thumbnail image) girl on Facebook. He’s 17 (I’m 24 for reference), and I feel it is my sisterly duty to make sure he doesn’t look like a moron on the Internet. I asked him if he had a new girlfriend, and the exchange went something like this: Brother: Hold on, just let me finish typing this… Me: Sounds intense. Brother: […] Okay. She’s…
