Julianne Moore is a witch, I mean… she’s a dragon-witch. Uh, maybe she’s just a dragon? But she was still Julianne Moore. Julianne Moore.

I’m not exactly sure why I’m so worried about this animated adaptation of The Little Prince. It’s not like Antoine de Saint-Exupery‘s classic children’s novella is untouched by the hands of film and TV. And there’s nothing wrong with adaptation on a basic level. There’s just something about the notion of a star-filled version of the notoriously sad book that puts me on high alert. Don’t happi-fy this one, Hollywood.
That said, the actors involved give me no small bit of hope.READ MORE

I know I’m not the only one who sees R.I.P.D. and reads B.P.R.D. Both are comic books from Dark Horse and both are based around the supernatural. But only one is going to be a movie out this summer. Based on the comic from Peter Lenkov and Lucas Marangon, R.I.P.D. stars Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, and Mary-Louise Parker. Susana describes it as, “What if Jeff Bridges did a funny voice and then things exploded: The Movie.” See what you think…

These days, it seems like Hollywood has finally discovered that dystopian young adult fiction is a trend that can make bunches at the box office, thanks to The Hunger Games. We can also look forward to The Host and the long awaited advent of a big budget Ender’s Game adaptation. But older young adults in their twenties and thirties can sit around saying “In my day, we walked fifteen miles to the library to pick up copies of Garth Nix‘s Shade’s Children and Lois Lowry‘s The Giver. And then we wrote our book reports with pencil and paper! And then gave it to our parents to spellcheck!”
But I actually had The Giver read to me at bedtime before I was ever assigned it in school, so I guess I have the most hipster dystopian YA cred of all.READ MORE

I remember seeing preview footage of Tron: Legacy at San Diego Comic-Con and being pretty impressed. The 3D actually made sense and they seemed to have a good handle on a story that would do the original film justice. When I saw the full movie I thought it was good, not great, and didn’t expect them to make any more. While the idea was bounced around for a while, it looks like it’s finally gaining momentum.READ MORE

Can’t… not… rhyme…
There have been rumors of yet a third dip into the setting of Tron since literally before the DVD release of Tron: Legacy. No, wait, I just checked. They’ve been around since the April before Tron: Legacy‘s December release.
So lets just say that for better or worse there’s a precedent, and furthermore one does not cast Cillian Murphy in a role with three minutes of screentime unless perhaps one plans to use his character in a later movie. And now the Tron sequel’s sequel is getting its confirmation biased by none other than Bruce Boxleitner, Tron himself.READ MORE

Okay, R.I.P.D., now you have our attention: In the latest casting news for the film adaptation of the Dark Horse title Rest In Peace Department, it was announced that Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated model Marisa Miller will be playing the part of … Jeff Bridges. Or, at least, she will be playing the corporeal version of the dead police officer named Bo whose spirit is being played by Jeff Bridges. Because, as you may have guessed, the Rest In Peace Department is made up of dead cops who answer to God.READ MORE

While appearing on The Colbert Report to promote his new country music album (!), Jeff Bridges went on a short rift to quickly promote Summer’s Eve products. Because he cares. Stephen Colbert has also discussed Summer’s Eve products on his show, mostly because it had a really stupid ad campaign. We, “Women,” endorse Jeff Bridges as our official spokesdude for Summer’s Eve products. No more stupid fist puppets depicting racial stereotypes. Just Jeff Bridges. Pleaseandthankyou.
