After Earth
In the new movie "After Earth", a crash landing leaves father and son team Will and Jaden Smith stuck on the planet a thousand years after humans were forced to flee Earth. I got the opportunity to talk to co-screenwriter of "After Earth", Gary Whitta, who also wrote the post-apocalyptic smash hit "The Book of Eli". Whitta gave me the lowdown on his new project, "The film is set in the future after humankind has been forced to basically evacuate planet Earth. The premise is that at some point in the future, we finally reach the point as a human species where we've done so much damage to the...

The Book of Eli
Filmmaker brothers Allen and Albert Hughes have been hit with a copyright lawsuit over their hit Denzel Washington movie The Book Of Eli.

Georgia-based writer Bridgette Burgin has accused the directors of stealing the movie's premise from her unpublished work The Final Call after she submitted 10 chapters of the book into a Writers Digest contest.

Burgin claims that judges, who screened the manuscripts, were allowed to hold on to the works after the competition and she alleges two of them then supplied her project to Gary Whitta, The Book of Eli screenwriter.

Burgin is now seeking dam...

Mila Kunis and Kourtney Kardashian
Mila Kunis showed a little cleavage at the 62nd Annual Writers Guild Awards in LA on Saturday, while new mom Kourtney Kardashian modeled her svelte figure at The Dash Fashion Show at Jet Nightclub in Las Vegas on Friday. Which celeb looks better? See more photos after the jump!

Mila recently starred in the Denzel Washington film "The Book of Eli." But her clothes on set were far different than the ones she wore over the weekend. Mila hated having to don the same dirty clothes every day. She told WENN, "I kept none of my ensemble from the film. It was so dirty and filthy. In fact I burne...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies -'Legion,' 'Extraordinary Measures' & More

Legion
In a rare feat, I was able to catch two movies last week that came out in theaters: "The Lovely Bones" and "The Book of Eli." I didn't really care for "The Lovely Bones" however

I very much enjoyed "The Book of Eli." To get a more detailed look at my thoughts check out my reviews here on Starpulse.

This week features a bizarre mix of movies including the religious thriller "Legion," the silly family film "Tooth Fairy," the emotional drama "Extraordinary Measures," and the coming-of- age story "To Save a Life."

After losing faith in humanity, God sends his legion of angels ...

'The Book of Eli' Shows Us The Power Of Faith

The Book of Eli
I should probably start this review off with a disclaimer: I've always loved Denzel Washington as an actor, and even though I haven't seen all of his movies, I can't think of a single one that I hate.

That being said, "The Book of Eli" directed by the Hughes brothers is a thoroughly entertaining and delightfully original story set in the post apocalyptic world. It's not necessarily the appearance of the world or the reason for its destruction that are so new. In fact, the most refreshing aspect is the conflicting motivations of its main opposing forces.

Religious undertones are pres...

Mila Kunis Would Prefer Toilet Paper After The Apocalypse

Mila Kunis
Sexy Mila Kunis doesn't look so glamorous in the post-apocalyptic wasteland of The Book of Eli. She plays an innocent girl born after the disaster, so she's only ever lived in the rubble. A product of the modern age, Kunis admits she would not be as resourceful as Denzel Washington's character in her film.

"I would fail," Kunis said. "I would fail miserably. Resourceful? No. I would need Bear Grylls with me because I wouldn't know what to eat. I would eat that snake with the yellow tail because I wouldn't know it was poisonous. I'm not like a survivalist. I'd like to think that I would b...

THE BOOK OF ELI
I'm really glad that I finally got the chance to see James Cameron's "Avatar" in 3-D. Visually Cameron creates an incredibly convincing alien world, paying attention to even the smallest details in the environment.

The vibrant jungle scenes bring out the advantages of 3-D and convinced me that as a medium it isn't just a lame gimmick, but rather an opportunity for filmmaking to mature in the coming years.

"Avatar" kept me glued to the screen, captivating me from the moment it began until the moment it finished. While the story and dialogue were predictable, I didn't necessarily c...

January: The Worst Month For Cinema

January 8th, 2010 10:35am EST
The Worst Month for Cinema
January truly is the worst month for film. In fact, January is the equivalent of the second string JV team in high school. Its sole purpose is to warm the benches for the upcoming seasons.

The month sometimes holds a few kernels of popcorn goodness. The two genres that perform well, or at least have been granted a few sleeper hits in the past decade, are thrillers and sci-fi/horror. Last year 'Taken' and 'My Bloody Valentine 3D' were stars among flops in January. Typically, as rabid consumers of cinema, we forget about January. Honestly, do any of you fondly remember titles like, '...
