New Hobbit movie might shoot outside of New Zealand

New Zealand may lose the filming of "The Hobbit" movies because of an actors' pay dispute, with financial backers Warner Bros. making arrangements to shift the production elsewhere, director Peter Jackson warned Thursday.

The "Lord of the Rings" film trilogy based on the J.R.R. Tolkien novels relied heavily on the rugged landscape of New Zealand, which in turn recieved a tourism boost after becoming associated with Tolkien's Middle Earth fantasy world inhabited by hairy-footed little people and host of other colorful beings.

But the $500 million, two-movie prequel, "The Hobbit," may end up shooting somewhere else, Jackson's Wingnut Films said.

Clint Eastwood pushes 80 with new supernatural thriller ‘Hereafter’

With a career that’s spanned movies as diverse as “Dirty Harry” and “Million Dollar Baby,” “Unforgiven” and “The Bridges of Madison County,” “A Fistful of Dollars” and “Invictus,” there isn’t much Clint Eastwood hasn’t done.

But it took a phone call from Steven Spielberg to convince the 80-year-old actor/director that he needed to try his hand at “Hereafter,” his first supernatural thriller.

“Steven called me one day and said, ‘I have a script I want to send over to you.’ I read it and liked it. So I just called him back and said, ‘I’ll do it.’ I didn’t realize that I was last on the list,” Eastwood says with a laugh.

Eastwood might not be the first choice to helm an eerie, chill-inducing meditation on mortality, but if the early reviews are any indication, “Hereafter” might enjoy a long life at the box office.

Mark Zuckenberg: Facebook movie claims are false

Mark Zuckenberg the founder of facebook is lashing back that Facebook was not created in response to being dumped by a girl.

At first he ignored the existence of the smash-hit movie that's 85 percent about how much he's a socially maladjusted jerk. But now Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, in a smart PR move, has confirmed that he'd brought his employees to a screening(complete with post-viewing apple martinis, a nice touch referencing a scene in the film), and is finally breaking his silence about "The Social Network."

Zuckerberg was asked about the difference between the movie and what he experienced while creating Facebook. "Where do you want to start?" he asked. Every shirt and fleece worn by the actor (Jesse Eisenberg) who played him was one he had actually worn, Zuckerberg said. The movie got a lot of stuff wrong and random details right, he said.

The cause was cancer, according to a statement by CBS Films, whose president, Amy Baer, is Mr. Bosley’s daughter.

Matt Damon will not return for Bourne 4 movie

Matt Damon has stated that he will not return for a fourth Bourne after the last one came out. Damon vowed, after director Paul Greengrass left the "Bourne" franchise, that he'd never do another "Bourne" movie unless they let Greengrass return. Tony Gilroy, screenwriter of two of the films and director of "Michael Clayton," has taken over the franchise, and he's found a way out of the Damon problem: Get rid of Jason Bourne.

The next film will be called "The Bourne Legacy," but even though the name's in the title, the film will have no Jason Bourne. Thus, no Matt Damon. Interestingly enough, the book "The Bourne Legacy" does have Jason Bourne (though it wasn't actually written by Robert Ludlum, the creator of the book series). Gilroy explained to Hollywood Elsewhere's Jeffrey Wells that he's just taking the title and running with it.

Music Video Counts 2 Million Viewers And 200,000 More Per Day

A masterfully edited montage of dance scenes from some 40 movies set to Kenny Loggins’s recording of “Footloose,” has quickly gone viral on YouTube, moving past the 2-million mark on Wednesday as it currently collects more than 200,000 additional viewers per day. The unidentified uploader apparently adjusted the speed of each clip so that the performers, who range from Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly to Michael Jackson and the cast of High School Musical, all appear to be dancing precisely to the beat of “Footloose.” While a notice appears at the end of the 4:45-length video acknowledging that “Copyright remains with the respective owners,” the creators appear to be taking no chances that they’ll be sued for copyright infringement. An opening credit attributes the film to a company called Media Solutions. However, while two separate companies with that name sell various services on the Internet, a Google search brings up nothing about a production company with that name.

Iron Man 2 Is Gold On DVD

Demonstrating that it’s still possible to release smash hits in the home-video market, Paramount Home Entertainment’s Iron Man 2 sold about 1.1 million standard DVDs and Blu-ray discs on its first day of release last week, then went on to sell nearly 4 million more by the end of the week, Home Media magazine reported on Wednesday. In fact, the release sold eight times more discs than the No. 2 film, Universal’s Get Him to the Greek. Nielsen VideoScan First Alert also noted that 52 percent of consumers bought Iron Man 2 on Blu-ray Discs. The solid showing runs counter to the recent downward trend in DVD and Blu-ray sales »
