When I was prognosticating the score for “The Counselor” on Rotten Tomatoes a couple days ago, I was thinking it would score well, especially with the talents involved; it’s directed by Ridley Scott, written by Pulitzer Prize winning author Cormac McCarthy, and stars Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, and Brad Pitt.

Max Landis is officially out of the Chronicle business, having been dismissed from the upcoming sequel by Fox execs who were unenthusiastic about his proposed direction for a follow-up to the surprise 2012 found-footage hit about a group of teens whose exposure to an unknown substance leaves them with superpowers.

It was more of a box office sensation than a critical darling, but the original Secret Life of Walter Mitty -- starring Danny Kaye as the titular mild-mannered daydreamer whose inner life offers a fabulous respite from his workaday existence (complete with musical numbers!) -- never seemed like an ideal candidate for the remake treatment, especially at the hands of a star like Ben Stiller, who infamously botched his attempt at remaking the classic The Heartbreak Kid.

It went from one of last year's most hotly anticipated releases to something of a critical disappointment, but Prometheus' $400 million gross all but guaranteed a sequel -- so although screenwriter Damon Lindelof has opted not to return, Fox is driving ahead with a follow-up, and it looks like they've found themselves a screenwriter.
joblo.com – I had the ultimate flashback to my childhood upon hearing the news that Fox is developing a big screen version of the classic Choose Your Own Adventure book series.

We've been taught to temper our expectations when it comes to seeing Wolverine on the big screen, but Fox really wants you to get excited about James Mangold's The Wolverine, and they've just unleashed the Comic-Con footage that's supposed to make it happen.

Now that they've finished screwing around with the sadly requisite rounds of teaser trailer teasers, Fox has finally deigned to give us our first honest-to-Logan Wolverine preview, dropping 2:27 of action-laced goodness on the Wolvie-lovin' masses. In a word: Snikt!

Any movie that hopes to turn the idea of monkeys taking over the planet into a successful sci-fi thriller needs to have a cast with a certain amount of gravitas. The original Planet of the Apes got it from Charlton Heston -- and now Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will get it from Gary Oldman.

It's been about five years since X-Files: I Want to Believe concluded its underwhelming run at the box office, and nobody seems to be in much of a hurry to add a third film to the franchise -- but David Duchovny, who played Fox Mulder on the long-running series before following him to the big screen, hasn't given up.
