Vulture is reporting that Rose Byrne has just taken a role in The Place Beyond the Pines, the upcoming crime drama from Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance.  The film stars Bradley Cooper as a police-officer-turned-politician who finds himself at odds with a stunt cyclist (Ryan Gosling) who also happens to be a bank robber. Byrne will play the wife of Cooper’s character, stepping in for Greta Gerwig, who was attached to the film but forced to bow out due to a scheduling conflict.  The film began shooting two weeks ago, and set photos have revealed Gosling with bleached hair and…

Production on World War Z has been underway for some time now, with Quantum of Solace director Marc Forster at the helm.  Adapted from the Max Brooks novel, the film stars Brad Pitt as UN officer Gerry Lane, who is trying to compile a report in the aftermath of a zombie uprising.  The set photos below come courtesy of Splash News: Rumors have also been swirling that Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston is poised to take a role in the film.  Details are scarce at the time, with Deadline reporting that the part is “small but flashy.”  Paramount will release…

Steven Soderbergh’s viral thriller Contagion is scheduled for release on September 9, and the studio has released six new character posters of the principal cast.  The film centers on the outbreak of a lethal airborne virus, and the panic that ensues as the worldwide medical community tries to find a cure.  Click each thumbnail to check out the full-size posters.

Despite scathing reviews from critics, Sony’s family film The Smurfs has become a surprise hit, opening strong against (and nearly stealing a box office victory from) Cowboys and Aliens. After pulling in $78 million in its first two weekends, it’s no surprise that Sony is already hard at work on a script for the sequel.  The studio has set a date of August 2, 2013, for Smurfs 2, hoping to duplicate the late-summer success of the original.

Showtime continues to vigorously promote the forthcoming sixth season of Dexter, touting a new direction for the character and a much darker theme than last season.  We already know that the season is at least partially focused on Dexter’s new fascination with religion and his desire to provide a better life for his son.  But with a new promo video, Showtime is pulling the curtain back on some of the other changes we can expect for the new season.  

Last month at Comic-Con, director Robert Rodriguez spilled a tiny bit of information on the status of his long-rumored follow-up to Sin City, saying “If it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen this year.”  He went on to reveal that Frank Miller had drafted a script containing three stories, including two new ones crafted especially for the film.  Rodriguez also said the film would be shot in 3D. Now, in a Q&A session with We Got This Covered, Rodriguez indicates that the film may be much closer than we think. “Sin City 2 is going good, we’re just finishing…

When Brent had originally asked me to do a column for the site, I tossed ideas around in my head before finally landing on this one. “I’ll watch the worst videos on the Netflix instant queue that I can find!” I told myself. I really, really had no idea what I was getting myself into. Enter Uncle Sam. The dreamiest of shit that I could pull from the depths of the darkest, most depraved sections of Netflix. The plot can be summarized as a classic dead-guy-revenge horror flick. Except this one is infused with patriotism. The movie starts out with…

After crossing the $1 billion mark a week ago, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 has continued its meteoric rise to the top of the all-time box office charts, and has now overtaken Return of the King to become the third-highest grossing film in history, with a haul of $1.14 billion. This is likely the final accolade this film will receive in its box office run, as the #2 film on the list, James Cameron’s Titanic, has a hefty lead of just over $70 million.  Looks like Harry and his friends will have to be content with taking…

Just last week, SyFy ordered six more episodes of Eureka to allow the producers to wrap up the show properly.  EW broke the news today that the deal has now fallen through, and the 12-episode fifth season will be the show’s last.  Here’s the official statement from SyFy: “After painstaking consideration, we have had to make the difficult business decision to not order a season six of Eureka. But Eureka is not over yet. There is a new holiday episode this December and 12 stellar episodes set to debut next year, marking its fifth season and six memorable years on…

The sixth season of Dexter is quickly approaching, and while I’m mildly disappointed that it won’t be premiering on my birthday weekend like it has the past few years, I’m not about to let that affect my excitement for the return of my favorite serial killer.  Michael C. Hall recently spoke with IGN and shed some light on the motives behind Dexter’s new interest in religion: “It’s his son. I think it’s taking responsibility for the fact that his son needs more than to be shielded from Dexter’s dark passenger. He also will need something positive… It’s an awareness that…
