"It's such a different environment. In this day and age you don't have the monolithic record company with seemingly limitless resources and multimillion-dollar profits. They don't exist. Which is why a partnership like this exists. The movie company does have that, and they will promote it. It's the only way to get your music in front of people," Chris Cornell recently told THR. Oh how times have changed since Badmotorfinger....

Seth Gordon’s latest directorial effort, with “Horrible Bosses” cohort Jason Bateman and “Bridesmaids” scene-stealer Melissa McCarthy in the leads, has steadily been coming together in recent months. And now set to hit next summer, it seems as if “Identity Theft” will start rolling any day now.

It's one of the great "what could have been" movies that will have to live on in our imagination. Before Paul Verhoeven's version that we already know and love, and the upcoming Len Wiseman-directed remake with Colin Farrell, David Cronenberg was once in line to direct "Total Recall." And while it never came to pass as Cronenberg and the producers had different ideas for the movie -- he wanted William Hurt for the lead, they wanted Arnold Schwarzenegger; he was going to go way off the source material, they just wanted a popcorn movie -- we now get a glimpse at what the result might have been.

The creator of "Lost" might have a horse in this fight (he's the co-writer of Ridley Scott's "Prometheus"), but he also has a point. In the last few months, marketing of major blockbusters seems to fall into two separate categories: keeping your cards close to the chest (the J.J. Abrams mystery box approach), or the show-absolutely-everything technique, bombarding fans with character posters, different trailers and enough clips and stills that you could essentially reconstruct the movie, with a basic understanding of narrative structure and a copy of iMovie.

After years of rumors, what ifs and hearsay, perhaps the most unlikely -- and certainly the most ambitious -- comic book movie of all time is finally hitting theaters this weekend. Beyond the mere logistical nightmare of pairing this massive cast with the equally massive budget required for such an undertaking, the green light for an “The Avengers” movie was dependent on the success of five other films before it. But here we are, with the film set to take North America by storm with hugely positive buzz and fanboys salivating for the penultimate moment when they finally hear “Avengers assemble!” echo across the megaplex.

The Wes Bentley comeback train keeps on rolling! The "American Beauty" star whose life was nearly ruined by his own overnight success/drug addiction is building on the momentum of "The Hunger Games," and has joined Diego Luna's next directorial effort with Mark Moses ("Mad Men"), Michael Cudlitz ("Southland"), Jacob Vargas ("Traffic") and Yancey Arias ("Legion") also on board for the story of labor-activist Cesar E. Chavez.

We’re not against films that are labeled as reboots per se, but we are fervently against reboots of films that were made within the last decade. It’s not that the new films themselves are guaranteed to be terrible, but there’s something so crass and terribly money-grabbing about them. It seems like the word "reboot" is code for either: “we fucked up the first time, and there’s no guarantee that we won’t again” or “we can’t wait to wring some more cash out of this franchise while we still can” or “we best churn out some shit fast before the rights to the property lapse.”

Franchise? Check. Working with an auteur? Check. Making a period movie based on classic book? Check. Looks like one of the last things Robert Pattinson has to check off his bucket list, besides making a comedy (though some would argue he's done that already), is making a movie about an Important Subject. Well, consider it done.
