Arnold Schwarzenegger's Black Sands becomes Black Sunday

Arnold is looking to revive his acting career in any way he can, it seems, as he's taking on the most random roles ever. I mean, if Arnold is desperate for roles, you know the economy's in trouble. Last we heard he was starring in the film ...

Zack Snyder may direct an Afghanistan war thriller

At this point, I'm fairly sure Zack Snyder exists to punish me for some sin in a past life. That, or just the usual "God's all hatin' on the Jew folk" we've been dealing with for a few thousand years. Anyway, Zack Snyder may be set to repla...

Trailer: War Horse

Sometimes a movie's title just seems a little too obvious. War Horse is one of those movies. It's a movie about a horse that goes to war and War Horse was the most creative thing they could come up with? Why not branch out with some metaph...
