Geena Davis won an Academy Award for her role in director Ridley Scott's 1991 classic Thelma & Louise. Now, she has re-teamed with Ridley and his late brother Tony Scott in Coma, an upcoming mini-series airing on A&E that was developed and produced by the famous brothers' Scott Free Productions. Hollywood Dailies was given an exclusive look at the mini-series based on Dr. Robin Cook's novel of the same name, and Davis explained to our own Viviana Vigil that the basic premise of the "creepy, spooky thriller" is pretty simple: "Don't ever let them put you under in a hospital." more about Coma >> Posted 08.26.12 by BrentJS
Since word got out that Alcon Entertainment had secured the rights to director Ridley Scott's 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner there's lots of questions about the project. Would it be a "prequel or sequel"? That question was answered when Alcon officially announced that original Blade Runner screenwriter Hampton Fancher would work with Scott to "develop the idea" for an original screenplay of a sequel that would take place "some years after the first film concluded." Then there was the question of Harrison Ford returning as retired police officer Rick Deckard. Though Scott won't confirm or deny that he planned to bring back Ford, he did admit that "nothing would please me more" than to bring Ford back if Deckard was going to be used in the sequel . While it's still possible for Ford to appear in the movie, it looks like he wouldn't be the star.
In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, Scott revealed that, at the very least, Ford wouldn't be needed as the lead for the Blade Runner sequel. Scott discusses women in movies >> Posted 05.19.12 by Ryan
'Tis the season, not only for Valentine's Day, but also that side effect of it, a barrage of chick flicks at the box office.
The chick flick is by nature, shall we say, problematic. First, there's the fact that society has ghettoized a vast lot of movies with a female protagonist under this lovely namesake that instantly implies shallow frivolity, artlessness, and utter commercialism. Secondly, there's the fact that many movies labeled as such do, indeed, deserve to be ghettoized, condemned to the celluloid wasteland, mocked by film students and scholars. Case in point, last weekend's box-office winner, Dear John.
But not all chick flicks need suck. This weekend, there's even hope for a non-sucky one in Valentine's Day (hope being the operative word). With that hope in our hearts, we offer up 10 Chick Flicks That Don't Totally Suck. Heck, many don't even suck at all. Posted 02.10.10 by reelz
