"The Empty Glass" aka Marilyn Monroe Novel Coming to Theaters Near You 


It's a salacious Hollywood thriller involving an icon's death. We're of course talking about "The Empty Glass," the J.I. Baker novel about a young coroner who wants to find out the real truth about Marilyn Monroe's death. Now, it's coming to theaters near you very soon, according to THR. Winkler Films has optioned the rights to the book.

The author will write the screenplay and Irwin Winkler and David Winkler will be producing. Baker said, "When I was writing The Empty Glass, I very much had Goodfellas in mind structurally, so the fact that Winkler Films has optioned the book makes it feel like it's come full-circle.”

Ride Aboard Wachowski Starship! 


Forget about the Wachowski Brothers, from here on out, they will be known as the Wachowski Starship!

Devin Faraci of CHUD.com attended the Fantastic Fest screening of "Cloud Atlas" at Austin's Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and tweeted:

"We were formerly the Wachowski Brothers. Now we're Wachowski Starship." - Andy W intro'ing CLOUD ATLAS #ff2012

Now that Larry is Lana, the term "brothers" does not fit anymore. So Starship it is! "Cloud Atlas" starring Tom Hanks and Halle Berry flies into theaters on Oct. 26th. This film marks the duo's first foray as the Wachowski Starship.

Snakes! Check Out New Pic of "Noah" and His Ark 


I never imagined Noah's ark to be full of snakes, oh, and alligator too! But this coming from director Darren Aronofsky, I'm totally teased!

Thanks to director of photography Matthew Libatique (who's a fellow Filipino, by the way, yeah!), he tweeted the above image by way of our friends at THR. But don't go looking for Libatique's tweeted pic, he took it down.

I can't wait for this movie which comes out on March, 2014. Russell Crowe leads the all-star cast that features Jennifer Connelly, Saoirse Ronan, Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, Ray Winstone and Anthony Hopkins.

Brand New "Les Miserables" Poster 


Channeling the look of the original Broadway production, Universal has released the brand new poster for the adaptation of "Les Miserables" and it pretty much looked like the musical poster except it showcases child actress Isabelle Allen who's playing the young version of Cossette (Amanda Seyfried plays the older version of the character).

Universal has been doubling down in teasing us with this musical directed by Tom Hooper ("The King's Speech"). Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, and Anne Hathaway co-star. Last week, the studio released the show-stopping extended featurette of the movie (Want to see it? Click here), and now, this poster!

I can't wait! Christmas can't come soon enough!
