Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters Gets A Sequel As It Crosses $200 Million Mark


By:  Kristy Puchko With January typically relegated as a dumping ground for movies that the studios can’t figure out, no one at Cinema Blend was looking forward to Tommy Wirkola‘s delayed revisionist fairy tale Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters…except for me. I’d enjoyed the Norwegian director’s bizarre and bloody brand of humor in the Nazi-zombie movie Dead Snow, and I can’t get enough of Jeremy Renner. So, I was hopeful. Most of the critic community ultimately loathed the R-rated tale of fantasy terror, but I loved []

Sarah Silverman May Become A Prostitute For Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West


By:  Eric Eisenberg Seth MacFarlane is going all out in the casting of his second directorial effort A Million Ways To Die In The West. Since being announced last December, riding the wave from the blockbuster success of Ted, the new projects has signed on top talent including Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Giovanni Ribisi and Liam Neeson, all of whom will be joining theFamily Guy creator, who is set to make his live-action acting debut. But it seems that until cameras start rolling MacFarlane is just going to keep adding names []

Bungie not worried about Destiny server issues


By: Eddie Makuch In the wake of SimCity’s troubled launch this month, Bungie has said it is not worried about an influx of users crippling Destiny‘s servers at release. “This isn’t our first rodeo,” the developer said as part of its latest Mail Sack. “Bungie is no stranger to anxious mobs of players who rush home after a midnight launch and put our best-laid plans to the test.” Bungie’s claim is not without merit, as the developer has overseen the generally smooth launches of a number of []

Beautiful Chaos (Caster Chronicles: Book 3)


Beautiful and spellbinding, a great book for the young adults of this generation. What I loved about this story was how it flowed, how it moved and picked up the ending. I have to say it progressed very well and picked up neatly. The style of this novel was amazing. The ending, which was unsuspecting and threw me such a huge curve ball was done beautifully. Instead of showing us the descent of the character through text and description, drove us into []

Tom Cruise May Star In Guy Ritchie’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E.


By:  Eric Eisenberg There once was a time when the big screen adaptation of the classic spy series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. was going to be a Steven Soderbergh film starring George Clooney as Napoleon Solo. But when the star went down with a back injury and the director decided not to make the movie, it gave Warner Bros. a chance to retool the project with some new players. And that’s exactly what they’ve done. In December of 2011 we learned that Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie was attached to the film, []

By: Eddie Makuch A handful of artists at Disney‘s Oscar-winning animation studio Pixar who worked on movies like Toy Story, The Incredibles, and Finding Nemo have created a game studio called Steel Wool Games (via Edge). Cofounders Sequoia Blankenship, Joshua Qualtieri, Jonathan Hoffman, Andrew Lee Dayton, and Jason Peter Topolski make up the Steel Wool Games executive team. The studio counts nine additional employees, according to its website. The five current Pixar artists have not left the award-winning animation studio, but rather are holding both jobs: creating movies during the day []

Monday Night TV (18 Mar 2013)


Interesting and predictable.  I’m sorry, but the plot line was interesting as a whole but the moment the viewer found out that that man was having an affair, it was 100% predictable that the wife was the murdered even though she knew.  It was so predictable.  It was interesting the whole apocalypse scenario.  But it was, ultimately boring.  Sorry Bones fans. Mondays @ 8PM EST on Fox. Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) is the most charismatic sociopath ever.  I even love him, as much []
