When Will You Be Able to See Michael Moore's New Documentary? 


As we told you last year, Michael Moore is working on a new documentary about the global economic meltdown.

Overture Films and Paramount Vantage, co-financers of the untitled film, noted that the release date is one year and one day after the U.S. Senate voted to approve a $700 billion bailout of Wall Street.

Moore asked Wall Street's help for his documentary on his website. He posted an email begging insiders to tell their stories.

Like many Moore's films, this one will be a comical look "at the corporate and political shenanigans" that the filmmaker is calling "the biggest robbery in the history of this country."

Whatever you think of Moore as a person, I adore him as a filmmaker. He's made some incendiary but thought-provoking films about the auto industry ("Roger & Me"), gun control ("Bowling for Columbine"), 911 ("Fahrenheit 911") and health care ("Sicko").

So I'll be lining up October 2nd!

"UFO" The Movie 

The 1970s British sci-fi series "UFO" is being turned into a big-screen adventure!

Legendary producer Robert Evans ("Chinatown," "Marathon Man") unveiled his plans to adapt the show created by Gerry Anderson ("Thunderbirds").

The original series was set in 1980 and told the story of an undercover military organization which kidnapped and killed humans.

The big screen version will be set in 2020. No word yet on the script, director, cast, and production.

For now, take a look at the opening scene of the TV series "UFO."

"Terminator Salvation" Movie Review -- Is the Film a Good Addition to the "Terminator" Franchise? 

I was prepared to hate “Terminator Salvation.” How can director McG top the stellar productions of the first two “Terminator” films by James Cameron? Besides, the third movie of the franchise was a forgettable mess.

The writers of the third “Terminator,” John D. Brancato and Michael Ferris, in an attempt to erase that movie from our memories, also wrote the fourth film. And now, Brancato and Ferris are forgiven. “Terminator Salvation” is a worthy addition to the franchise.

The best part of the film is its Western structure. “Terminator Salvation” borrows myths and conventions from good, old Western films in order to come up with a flawed but ultimately satisfying movie. Read More...

We Told You So, But Now It's Official -- Chace Crawford Will Star in "Footlloose" 

As we told you back in March, "Gossip Girl's" Chace Crawford impressed the heck out of Paramount bosses, that he was the strong contender to replace Zac Efron in the studio's retelling of "Footloose."

Well, now it's official! Crawford has signed on to channel Kevin Bacon in the upcoming remake!

Efron was signed to star but backed out due to "script disagreements."

Apparently, Paramount agreed to work around Crawford's "Gossip Girl" schedule.
