Luke Evans The Latest Departure From 'The Crow' Reboot I've been following the unraveling of the Crow reboot for a few months now. After an interview came to light that gave fans hope for the film, with series creator James O'Barr explaining how he came to support the project and outlining how passionately director F. Javier Gutierrez and star Luke Evans rallied to get him onboard, things began falling apart. Just over a month later, Gutierrez left the project.

'The Crow' Reboot Officially Loses Luke Evans It wasn’t that long ago that we heard about the possibility of Luke Evans departing the long-gestating reboot of ‘The Crow,’ which seemed like odd timing, given that the project had just attracted a new (and Edgar Wright-approved!) director. But this weekend makes the news more official, as the ‘Dracula Untold’ star has decided to move on from the project, leaving the iconic role open once again. Continue reading…

Film Review: Mortdecai

Latino Review - Fri, 2015-01-23 10:00

Film Review: Mortdecai The new action comedy "Mortdecai" stars Johnny Depp as the titular character, a financially distressed dealer of stolen art. Gwyneth Paltrow plays his wife Johanna, and Paul Bettany is Jock, his manservant and thug. They get involved in a globe trotting murder investigation after an art restorer is killed and a Goya painting she was working on is stolen. Mortdecai's antagonistic old chum, Inspector Martland, brings him in on the case, as his expertise in this particular area is much needed.

Mortdecai Review: If “Wes Anderson” Directed a Blake Edwards Movie Lionsgate Watching Mortdecai, I couldn’t help but spend most of my time contemplating what differentiates this from a Wes Anderson movie. After all, the former features Gwyneth Paltrow and Jeff Goldblum and, most importantly, a motorcycle with sidecar. It also centers on a valuable painting that multiple characters covet, just like Anderson’s latest, the Oscar-contending The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Johnny Depp’s Last Great Movie Universal Pictures Johnny Depp‘s latest movie, Mortdecai, is hitting theaters this weekend, and by all accounts it’s horrifically unenjoyable. Which you probably could have guessed. The trailer, the goggly-eyed posters and, hell, even the title with its superfluous T all pointed to self-parody without self-awareness. It shows Depp at his most rubbery, trying so damned hard to make a mustache wink that you could almost see him panting. That’s our consistent vision of the actor now, at least.

While promoting his upcoming new film, Spy, Paul Feig also talked about the upcoming all female Ghostbusters film he is been working on. He says that his intention is not to parody the original films but rather have a new story with a few nods to the originals. Read his remarks below:“We’re not recreating the old movie but we want to do just enough fun nods that the fans will go, ‘Oh, okay, they’re acknowledging that the other movie existed. I like to watch parodies, but I don’t want to do them because they’re too referential.

"The idea of one director, one vision is absolute rubbish," Andy Wachowski says in an extensive 100-minute chat alongside Lana Wachowski as part of the DePaul Visiting Artists Series in 2013 (via Slashfilm). It's a wide-ranging conversation conducted just as the directors had finished shooting "Jupiter Ascending," covering much of their career (including an anecdote about meeting Steven Spielberg before the two shot their debut feature "Bound").
