Who could direct the next James Bond film?

Sam Smith will sing the theme song for the upcoming 007 film “Spectre”

When it comes to theatrical theme songs, it’s hard to beat the ones that begin the James Bond franchise. I’ve loved the franchise since childhood (it’s the sort of thing a son bonds over, no pun intended, with the older male members of his family), the songs included. There have[...]

Can the British Academy Award Members influence the Oscar nomination results? Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, ‘Best Exotic,’ and ‘Skyfall’

Exactly two hours before I began writing up this article, the Producers Guild of America had just announced its complete list of nominees. In the “Theatrical Motion Picture” category, one film appeared that virtually no pundit had thought to anticipate: Sam Mendes’ British-produced Skyfall. But after recently crossing the $1[...]

Superman’s super-powered foe will be …

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: So Superman officially has a villain.
