Last time audiences saw Vincent Chase and his affable chums on Entourage everything was all hunky-dory. Each and every character (even Johnny ‘Drama’ Chase) was on a path to success or happiness, and audiences who had experienced the series’ ups and downs were mostly left satisfied with how things ended.
But, with talk of a movie still rolling around, the finale also left fans wondering where creator Doug Ellin was looking to take the story from there. While we don’t have any more concrete details about the story, Ellin has provided an update on the Entourage script, which he is looking to complete very soon.
In a series of e-mail conversations between Ellin and Deadline, the Entourage creator reveals he is on page 110 of the script and should (hopefully) be finished by this Sunday. Although ...

Pacific Rim is a massive undertaking in terms of special effects requirements, as well as the sci-fi concepts present in Travis Beacham’s original script draft – such as robotic machinery operated by a “neurological bridge” between humans – not to mention, the plot involves sky-scraping robots battling similarly-massive creatures from another dimension.
However, at Comic-Con, director Guillermo del Toro revealed that he resisted utilizing certain modern-effects tools (ex. motion-capture) that similar large-scale productions (Avatar, The Avengers) have relied upon – as it would not have fit his approach. It’s for similar reasons the filmmaker refrained from shooting Pacific Rim in 3D, while expressing little to no interest in converting the project to 3D during post-production.
Warner Bros., on the other hand, isn’t so hesitant about post-converting films to 3D. ...

The full trailer for Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph brings on more of the 3D animated film’s bright and shiny visuals, as well as innumerable references to popular video games from both the present and past.
Ralph’s quest to become more than just a Donkey Kong-style baddie in an arcade game was introduced in the teaser trailer, but here we get a better taste of his success on that journey. However, as Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) prospers, his absence not only leaves his “rival” Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer) without a purpose, it endangers the very existence of his home-game. Can Ralph save the day and fulfill his dreams at the same time? (Spoiler: Yup.)
We also get Jane Lynch reusing her Sue Sylvester vocal mannerisms as Sergeant Calhoun in the Hero’s Duty video game (an obvious riff on Call of Duty) – not to mention, ...

Longtime fans of cult cartoon guru Genndy Tartakovsky are pretty much unified in their anticipation for his 3D animated feature Hotel Transylvania, which opens in a couple weeks. However, their interest goes beyond loyalty – since the success of Tartakovsky’s first theatrically-released directorial effort could eventually pave the way for a film adaptation of his popular Samurai Jack animated TV show.
Tartakovsky has provided an update on the Samurai Jack movie – and although he has no significant progress to report, the Russian filmmaker insists the project very much has a heartbeat.
Samurai Jack, for the uninitiated, is an award-winning cartoon series about a feudal samurai (Jack, obviously) who must battle his nemesis – the shape-shifting wizard Aku and his minions – in a dystopian future. It’s an ingenious blend of Japanese ...
