Hollywood Movie News


  •  Ang Lee's adaptation of the award-winning novel, 'Life of Pi' by Yann Martel, has released a spectacular new trailer crammed full of wonder, action and CGI animals. The trailer looks bright and colorful and sea-faring. The movie follows the deeds of Pi (Suraj Sharma), a young boy traveling with his zookeeper family from India to America aboard a Japanese cargo ship. When a violent storm sinks their transport, Pi is left stranded on a lifeboat with only a 450 pound tiger for company. Beyond the tiger and boat, the original Yann Martel novel gets into some heavy issues of spirituality and personal identity. It's a tricky thing to adapt a masterful novel. So, let's hope the Oscar winner and critically acclaimed director Ang Lee exceeds our expectations.

  •  It's been a while since we've seen any movies directed by the duo behind The Matrix, but sci-fi fans will be happy to hear that The Wachowski's next film will hit theaters this October. Cloud Atlas is an $80 million adaptation of David Mitchell's critically acclaimed novel. Earlier, it was said that Wachowski's were only producing, but now it seems that they have decided to get behind the camera along with the German director Tom Tykwer. The book consists of six different stories set in a different time and place, which ultimately connect. The massive cast includes a lot of A-list actors like Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Jim Broadbent, and Hugh Grant
