5 Actors Who Could Reboot ‘Rocky’

10.27.2016 | By |

Creed was one of the surprise hits of 2015, and successfully revitalized the Rocky franchise in an unexpected way. While Sylvester Stallone stole the show as an aging Rocky training a protégé, it was Michael B. Jordan’s Adonis Johnson character that positioned himself to continue the series. That means that in some sense Rocky will continue, though it will do so through a new character. Coming Soon, which tends to have up-to-date information on release dates in addition to its regular film news, has said that there’s a tentative November 2017 release date for Creed 2 (which may or may not feature Stallone in a major role).

The Interview (Movie Review)

12.18.2014 | By |

** On December 10th, 2014, a group of critics were invited by Sony Pictures to watch – THE INTERVIEW. I was one of them. Here are my thoughts on the now historic and controversial action-comedy, which most likely will never be seen.

The “1-4-0″: #TheInterviewMovie is an above average comedy which though isn’t a masterpiece, it did provide some hearty laughs and a memorably cool Kim Jung-un character.  Read More

Selena Gomez, Hollywood’s new A lister?

03.19.2013 | By |

The Disney Princess is no more as a new rebellious side takes over. With a special debut of the indie film “Spring Breakers” 20-year-old Selena Gomez shows that she is ready to take on more mature roles in Hollywood.

This weekend the film, directed by Harmony Korine (Kids, Mister Lonely), had a special three-theater-only debut which left everyone with their jaws on the floor – not only because of the wild college girls in tiny bikinis but because of the positive response to the film. Read More

Hathaway, Franco to host 83rd Oscars

Hathaway, Franco to host 83rd Oscars

Two very unorthodox presenters have been selected to be co-hosts of the 83rd ceremony on Feb. 27 – James Franco and Anne Hathaway will be running the show at the next Academy Awards.

James Franco is a fine actor but can he host? Anne Hathaway is surprisingly a fantastic entertainer who showed her chops at last year’s Oscars and The Tony’s.

The announcement creates the prospect that one or both hosts might also be nominees. Franco is considered a solid best-actor prospect for the survival drama “127 Hours,” while Hathaway has a chance for a best-actress slot for the romance “Love & Other Drugs.”

Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer, producers of the Oscar telecast, said it’s not unprecedented for Oscar hosts also to be nominees.

It’s the second-straight year the Oscars have tapped a pair of actors as hosts. Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin teamed up as hosts last time.
