Born in the Hell’s Kitchen Neighborhood of New York City and raised in Philadelphia, Sylvester Stallone has led the charge on making a name for himself in the entertainment industry.

Yesterday’s news of a non-Joss Whedon reboot of the Buffy franchise traveled fast and created a collective groan from fans of things that are very good. Including series creator Joss Whedon. Sort of.
There are no plans to make another Toy Story sequel, but that won’t stop Woody and the gang from returning to the big screen.

Being one of the biggest stars in the world has afforded Leonardo DiCaprio the artistic freedom to create any project that he wants (and bang models).

The holidays are right around the corner, and it looks like Billy Bob Thornton has a gift for us in the form of Bad Santa 2. Well, not really, but he’s open to the idea, which is a start.

We didn’t expect big Batman news from Christian Bale while he’s promoting his new drama, The Fighter. He doesn’t shoot until next year, but I thought at least I could get his reaction to the title Christopher Nolan announced. Bale doesn’t even believe it’s going to be called The Dark Knight Rises.
When we finally see Kevin Flynn again in Tron: Legacy, he sort of resembles an even more famous Jeff Bridges character. You’ve seen that barefoot, bearded Flynn in the robe, but he even talks like The Dude. He describes digital jazz, man and doesn’t want anyone to “mess with his Zen.”
Our friends at File Front put together a list of games that they’d all like to see make it to the big screen. If you love it, we had everything to do with. If you hate it, it was totally all them.
We don’t always agree on the happenings in the entertainment industry and we like to make our beefs public. There’s a lot of hubbub regarding the release of Disney’s Tron Legacy, but when it comes down to it, do you really care, or could you give a sh*t? Fight!
Brilliant and eccentric method actor Daniel Day-Lewis will stop shaving today, as Steven Spielberg has chosen him to play our great nation’s 16th President in Lincoln. The announcement was made today by Spielberg and Stacey Snider, Co-Chairman and CEO of DreamWorks Studios.

We can either call this a confirmation or the inane ramblings of a British madman, but Michael Caine has told Empire that The Dark Knight Rises will beginning shooting in May 2011.
Even though he died several years ago, Jigsaw is still claiming victims. The most recent of which was a group of very young schoolchildren who accidentally took in a viewing of Saw 3D.
Releasing one bad-ass poster for True Grit just isn’t enough to appease those Coen Brothers. As the film’s December release draws near, the marketing team is beginning their full press.
Warner Bros., director Zack Snyder, and producer Chris Nolan are on the prowl for a Man of Steel. In their search, they’re open to creating a star for the Superman reboot. Hey Kid, ya wanna be a star?
Using the awesome power of the Screen Junkies super computer (The SJ 3000), I was able to determine the most probable roles for those rumored to be appearing in the film, and you can’t argue with science. So sit back and see for yourself who will be playing what in the upcoming Muppet Movie.
Tom Shadyac is stepping out of the trailer park and back behind the camera. The Ace Ventura director will next take on a Sam Kinison biopic for HBO Films. The film is based on the memoir Brother Sam: The Short, Spectacular Life of Sam Kinison.
Robert Downey Jr. is a happily married man, but that’s not stopping him from brushing up on How to Talk to Girls.

Well what if I told you the advice dispenser was nine-years old at the time the book was published? BOOM!
Please take a moment, open your journals, and write this information down. Trust me, you’ll want to always remember where you were when you first heard this news. Emily Blunt might appear in a good movie.
The space-time continuum is safe for now. Robert Zemeckis has wisely passed on the opportunity to remake the beloved classic The Wizard Of Oz.
This marks Leary’s first onscreen performance in a theatrical film since 2002’s The Secret Lives of Dentists. But no matter what happens, I’ll always remember him as renegade Edgar Friendly from the 1993 classic, Demolition Man.
Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney (a.k.a Gorgeous George) is considering the lead in Steven Soderbergh’s adaptation of “The Man from Uncle.” If the project goes through, it will mark the seventh time that Clooney and Soderbergh have collaborated on a film.
And the winner is…
Patrons flocked to theaters for killer piranhas, so who’s to say they wouldn’t do the same for killer bees? Producers Roy Lee and Steven Schneider sure as hell aren’t going to say such a thing. The two are currently developing a remake of the 1978 disaster movie The Swarm, a bee B-movie, if you will, and even if you won’t.
Amazon.com isn’t content to sell you movies. They also want to make the movies they sell you. That’s why they’ve launched Amazon Studios, a website that allows aspiring screenwriters to submit their work, collaborate with other screenwriters, and win over a million dollars in monthly prizes.
