Ocean’s 11 films are pretty much male dominated, with George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, and the rest of the crew pulling off some sort of elaborate heist to steal millions from casinos, save themselves from jail time, or get revenge on casino owners who hurt one of their own. Sure there were some females in the film franchise, but they didn’t really get into the art of the heist. All three movies were directed by Steven Soderbergh, and for the most part, all of them were pretty entertaining to watch. But it was been eight years since the release of Ocean’s 13, and it looks like there are some who believe that a film like this could work again, but this time it will be Sandra Bullock who will lead a team of women to pull of an insane heist. More on the story below.
George Clooney and The Coen Brothers have a very healthy working relationship. Together, they have worked on four films: O Brother Where Art Thou, Intolerable Cruelty, Burn After Reading, and come next year, Hail, Caesar! But of all those films, Clooney has only starred in them, not directed. So the Coen Brothers’ next project might be that paradigm shift in their working relationship.
There is a new report coming out that says Clooney is in talks to direct Suburbicon from the Coen Brothers, a project that has been gestating for over a decade. More on the story below.

Disney’s sci-fi adventure Tomorrowland features an uneven mix of visual thrills and plot-heavy spills, but obtaining it on Blu-ray is worth the investment for viewers who appreciate absorbing cinematic experiences.
The movie defines that rare breed of film that complements its action-heavy sequences with mindfulness and highbrow concepts.
It’s almost been three years since we last saw a Coen Brothers film, but come early next year we won’t have to wait any longer. Hail, Caesar! features an eclectic and all-star cast featuring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Ralph Fiennes, Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Alden Ehrenreich, and Frances McDormand. Now Universal has released the first trailer for the film.
Set in the latter years of Hollywood’s Golden Age, the film follows a fixer (Brolin) who gets tangled in a Hollywood scandal involving kidnapping an A-list movie star (Clooney), a huge ransom, and more. Check out the first trailer for Hail, Caesar! here below.
Brad Bird‘s latest action adventure is possibly his most complex, as he builds an intricate world with tons of “wow” moments – only matched by the same quantity of “oh, this could have been better” moments.
I loved Tomorrowland, even though I sighed nearly as often as I smiled with giddiness. The level of detail and consideration Bird and his production team put into Disney’s sci-fi flick speak to the genius of the group on board. But there could have been too many cooks in this kitchen – or rather, too many crafty individuals on set.
What made Tomorrowland work, where did it suffer, and what aspects could have lent themselves to opportunities that were sadly not embraced? Here is my rundown.
