After reports of a troubled production, the box office success of Brad Pitt's World War Z caught a lot of people by surprise. Among them are probably the filmmakers themselves. Now, they're scrambling to come up with something for the obligatory sequel. With a worldwide gross of over $536 million, World War Z is, somehow, Pitt's most successful movie to date, but it didn't appear that way when the movie was first screened.
movieweb.com – Brad Pitt recently sat down with Variety at the Toronto International Film Festival and offered a brief update to the state of Marc Forster's possible World War Z sequels. Check out what he had to say."We're certainly talking about it, yes. We have so many ideas on the table from just the time we spent developing this thing and figuring out how zombie worlds work. 46 weeks 11 hours ago via brucelee
latino-review.com – 20th Century Fox has released the full trailer for director Ridley Scott’s “The Counselor.” Legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott and Pulitzer Prize winning author Cormac McCarthy (No Country for Old Men) have joined forces in the motion picture thriller The Counselor, starring Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, and Cameron Diaz. 50 weeks 5 days ago via jetli
fb.indiewire.com – Ahead of tomorrow's release of the full trailer, the folks behind Ridley Scott's Cormac McCarthy-penned "The Counselor" have released two clips from the star-studded film, which stars Michael Fassbender in the title role alongside Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Penélope Cruz, and Javier Bardem. The clips both feature Fassbender, one alongside Pitt, the other with Bardem (though hopefully the trailer offers more of Diaz and Cruz, rumored to be the highlights of the film). 50 weeks 6 days ago via donnieyen
feedproxy.google.com – Fox Searchlight has moved up Steve McQueen's much-anticipated "12 Years a Slave" from its previously announced release date of December 27 to October 18. This makes it all the more likely that the film will play the early fall festival circuit. We recently predicted it would land at Venice. Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Benedict Cumberbatch and Paul Giamatti, among many others in a sprawling cast, star in the true-life tale of Solomon Northrup, a free African-American man abducted and sold into slavery in the pre-Civil War United States. 1 year 4 weeks ago via brucelee

We've read a lot of debate lately about the length and content of trailers -- and heck, we've done a fair amount of complaining on the subject in this very spot -- but whoever put together the first promo clip for Ridley Scott's The Counselor knew exactly what they were doing.
feedproxy.google.com – If there has been a more anticipated film than Ridley Scott's The Counselor in recent years, I don't know what it is. From the moment word got out that Cormac McCarthy had written an original script there has been a frenzy around this project, from the director sweepstakes to a high profile casting roundabout that saw the production land the likes of Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz. 1 year 4 weeks ago via donnieyen

The zombies in World War Z move with incredible speed -- and so did Paramount when it came time to decide whether to get working on a sequel to the $66 million (and counting) hit.
darkhorizons.com – The epic zombie apocalyptic antics of Marc Forster's "World War Z" hauled in an impressive $111.8 million in its worldwide debut this weekend, $66 million from North America alone. That is the highest opening for an original live-action tentpole since "Avatar," not to mention the biggest debut of star Brad Pitt's career. 1 year 4 weeks ago via donnieyen

The problem with zombies is they’re so overused we can’t see them as tropes anymore: by now they only exist as metaphors, and playing with that facet may be the last means a filmmaker has of producing a unique apocalyptic monster. I loved Chuck Klosterman’s NYT OpEd on TV's The Walking Dead.
