George Lucas Says Studios “Don’t Have Any Imagination or Talent”
“…the problem has always been the studios,” Lucas told Charlie Rose on “CBS This Morning.” “Although the beginning of the studios, the entrepreneurs who ran the studios were sort of creative guys. They would just take books and turn them into movies and do things like that. Suddenly all these corporations were coming in. They didn’t know anything about the movie business.”

Joe Ballarini (“Ice Age: Continental Drift”) is writing the script for this one, which will help Hasbro expand the brand which already includes toys, video games, comic books, straight-to-DVD movies, and much more.

James Cameron Spills Beans on How Schwarzenegger Can Be In New Terminator
“I wasn’t interested in producing it or working on it actively, but I did want to put in a good word for Arnold. I pointed out that the outer covering (of the Terminator) was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age. You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is…
Early Buzz Says ‘Big Hero 6’ Is Another Winner From Disney Animation
November 7 brings two of the biggest movies of the year. First is Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and the second is Disney Animation’s Big Hero 6.

‘Pacific Rim 2’ Begins Filming in 2015 And Leads Right In To ‘Pacific Rim 3’
With an April 7, 2017 release date already locked in, it’s no surprise Guillermo del Toro is deep into work on Pacific Rim 2. What’s a bit more intriguing is that he’s planning the movie with an eye on the sequel, the not-yet-greenlit Pacific Rim 3.
Whereas Pacific Rim 2 is expected to differ quite a bit from Pacific Rim 1, it seems 2 and 3 may be more closely linked.
On the one hand, …
CBS Launches Subscription Streaming Service
Should Netflix be looking over its shoulder? Yesterday, HBO made the surprise announcement that in 2015 they would be launching a stand-alone streaming service. But today, CBS beat them to punch by launching CBS All Access, which for the low price of $5.99/month grants access to almost everything the network has to offer. The key word here being “almost.”

‘Miss Medows’ Trailer Starring Katie Holmes
Well this isn’t creepy at all. Not a bit. WAIT YES IT IS!
Some has said that she’s playing a Pulp Fiction version of Mary Poppins in this film. Whatever, she’s scary. But it appears maybe not altogether in a bad way? It’s a little unclear at this point. It seems she’s more of a vigilante.
Katie Holmes has come a long way from Dawson’s Creek and one certainly does not think of a badass when they…
3 TV Spots For Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar
It’s Christopher Nolan, and it’s sci-fi, so what could go wrong?
Well given that I don’t think his last two films were up to what I consider the level of his best work, I don’t know what could go wrong. Hopefully nothing. It looks really good and until proven otherwise I’m going to believe it is really good.
The film comes to theaters on November 7.
Brad Bird On Why He Passed Up Directing ‘Star Wars 7’
“For a moment there, I thought it would work out to do ‘Tomorrowland’ and go right into it, [but then I realized] it wouldn’t work,” he explained. “There was no way to make that schedule and give this film the attention it deserved. I know it’s going to be terrific and everything, but I’m really happy to do this film. It’s rare to do a film of this size that’s original.”
