McG In Talks With Sony Regarding Masters Of The Universe Deadline reports Terminator: Salvation director McG is in talks to direct Masters of the Universe, the second live-action film to spawn from Mattel‘s He-Man toy line.

Produced by Cannon Films on a shoe-string budget, the film failed to ignite imaginations or box office tallies. A big budget second attempt has been in the works since the turn of the century with directors as varied as John Woo, Kung Fu Panda‘s John Stevenson, John M.

Poker memoir Molly's Game to serve as Aaron Sorkin's directorial debut I'm not certain why, but I've always sort of assumed that Aaron Sorkin must have directed something during his long career in Hollywood, but apparently that's not the case. That will soon be rectified as Deadline reports that Sorkin is set to make his directorial debut with MOLLY'S GAME, which is based on Molly Bloom’s memoir of the same name. MOLLY'S GAME...

Weekend Box Office Wrap-up: December 13, 2015 Awaiting the release of Star Wars, the box office was at a lull this weekend, seeing low numbers amidst holdover and unappealing new releases. For the fourth consecutive week, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 finished at #1. The film brought in $11.3 million over the weekend to raise its domestic total to $244.4 million. Mockingjay is only the second film this year to come on top for four straight weeks (the other being Furious 7), showing that even though the numbers have been down for this installment, there’s still sizable interest in the property.

Danny Boyle Blames 'Steve Jobs' Box Office on Universal's Release Strategy While the aptly-named Steve Jobs biopic Steve Jobs has drawn a host of positive reviews, the box-office receipts have been rather lackluster. After three weeks of exhibition in wide release, the film — which boasts a script from the most well-known screenwriter alive and performances from three big-name stars — has a paltry $16...

Aaron Sorkin: Denzel would have made a great Steve Jobs Casting the title role in Steve Jobs was no easy task — in part because the late Apple co-founder still looms large in the popular consciousness, and in part because of how thoroughly the character dominates the film. During the movie’s closely covered development process, such big-name...

Bleak Friday at Box Office: ‘Steve Jobs’ Fails to Ignite and 4 Wide Openers Flop It was a bleak Friday at the box office. Universal’s Oscar hopeful “Steve Jobs” sputtered in its wide expansion, three other wide openers tanked and the “Paranormal Activity” franchise finale’s grosses were gutted by a protest by angry theater owners in a busy Friday at the box office. That left Sony’s Jack Black horror comedy “Goosebumps” and Matt Damon‘s “The Martian” to battle for No.

Michael Fassbender would be the first person to tell you he doesn’t really look like Steve Jobs. He told Danny Boyle as much when the director approached him to play the charismatic Apple co-founder in Steve Jobs. “The first thing I said to Danny when I met him was like, ‘Well you know, I...
