Director Chris Miller has crafted an excellent spin-off of the popular "Shrek" franchise starring the lovable feline "Puss in Boots." He's been with the character since its inception, so it just makes sense for Miller to be at the helm. In this interview, we talked about:
*** His interest in making a full-feature film about "Puss in Boots"
*** The rich history of Puss in Boots
*** Why direct it?
*** How the story evolved including the formation of the supporting characters
*** Humpty Dumpty's redemption
*** Working with Antonio Banderas
*** The moral of the story
"Puss in Boots" arrives Friday, Oct. 28th, HAVE FUN!

We fell in love with the character Puss in Boots when we first saw him in 2004’s “Shrek 2.” The frisky feline, voiced by Antonio Banderas, nearly stole the show from Mike Myers (Shrek) and company.
Now, Puss is ready for his close-up and is getting his own feature film. It’s an origin movie explaining how Puss got his boots. Well, the cat is finally out of the bag and I’m happy to report that the action adventure is fun, lively, and inventive. It is indeed the cat’s meow! Read More...

We loved Kevin Bacon as Ren in the original "Footloose." And the actor has been quiet regarding the new remake...until now...
I enjoyed "Footloose" the remake, you enjoyed it too, and apparently, Bacon thinks the new film "rocked it!"
Bacon tweeted, "F-Loose! Just saw it. Congrats to Craig, Kenny, Julianne, Dennis,Andie, Miles, and the rest of the cast. U guys rocked it!"
It's kind of cool that Bacon paid for his own ticket to see the film (he tweeted the picture of his ticket stub, check it out here). But why did he not attend the premiere instead? He was probably waiting until the hype surrounding the Craig Brewer remake subsided before cutting loose, HA!
But thanks Mister Kevin, we still love you as Ren, but we enjoyed Kenny Wormald's moves as well!

Eric Bana will channel Elvis Presley in the new independent film "Elvis & Nixon." Danny Huston will star as Richard Nixon in the directorial debut of Cary Elwes ("The Princess Bride"). Bana will also be the executive producer through his Pick Up Truck Pictures banner.
Elwes also co-wrote the script with Joey Sagal and Hanala Sagal. The film will focus on the event of Dec. 21, 1970 when Presly traveled to Washington D.C. to meet President Nixon at the White House.
According to Variety, "Elwes was so fascinated by how the improbable meeting between the two historical figures came to pass that he chose the unlikely summit as the subject of his first film as a writer-director."
Thank you, thank you very much...
