As you read this, Universal is hard at work creating their own, Marvel-style shared universe. It won’t be filled with superheroes, though—it’ll be filled with monsters. Three linked Universal Monsters movies are currently on the schedule and now, one of them may star Oscar-winner Russell Crowe.
When it was released in 1995, Virtuosity (from director Brett Leonard, who’d already explored virtual reality in 1992's Lawnmower Man) was a bomb, despite the star power of Denzel Washington and an up-and-comer named Russell Crowe. In 2016, it’s now hilariously dated—but that actually makes it way more entertaining to…
Phone-throwin’ bloke Russell “Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions and loyal servant to the TRUE emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife” Crowe took a stance yesterday against the BOGANS of Virgin Australia for confiscating…
Remember a few weeks back when the King Kong-prequel film, Kong: Skull Island lost both Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons from its cast? That definitely seemed like a blow but the two latest names mentioned for the project definitely restore any faith lost at that time.
Magical realism can illuminate and amplify the emotions in a deeply personal story — or, in clumsy hands, it can just create extra distractions and create a giant mess. Russell Crowe tries to use magical realism in his directorial debut, The Water Diviner, and the results are less than great.
The Water Diviner, Russell Crowe's directorial debut, has already won a ton of awards in Australia. And now this movie about a man with the magical power to find water — who's searching for his sons in World War I — is coming to the States in April. Here's a trailer that showcases the sad, gorgeous visuals.
... and redemption. Here's the trailer for Russell Crowe's directorial debut, The Water Diviner, in which he also stars as a man who lost all of his sons in World War I. On a mission to bring their bodies home, he discovers that one may not have died after all.
The Winter's Tale movie was kind of a huge letdown — except for this unexpected scene featuring Will Smith in a surprising role. And now that this movie is out on DVD, here's Will Smith completely stealing the movie in one wacky sequence. Spoilers ahead...
Behold Darren Aronofsky's gorgeous recreation of the Book of Genesis. Taken straight out of his latest movie Noah, it's almost easy to believe that this entire film may have been conceived just so Aronofsky could illustrate the Biblical version of the big bang.
But he, and the rest of the Noah team, did get a brief meeting with his this morning. Thus ended nearly a month of speculation, which began with some errant Crowe tweets.
God is PIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISSED.
"The end of the world... is just the beginning." BWAH HA... oh wait this is real.
Earlier this week, actor Russell Crowe posted this tweet, describing UFOs he'd spotted outside his Woolloomooloo office:
The long-awaited movie adaptation of Mark Helprin's flying horse novel Winter's Tale is up and shooting again, after Hurricane Sandy halted the production. Which is news to us, because we had no idea the movie was even shooting in New York! The 1983 novel is a cornerstone of magical realism in literature, and we have…
Incidentally, this isn't too far from the truth. As reality would have it, Crowe (a main character in Iron Fists) spent all of ten days on set, channeling legendarily unhinged and deceased Wu-Tang Clan rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard. Said Robert "RZA" Diggs — the film's director and famed Wu-Tang producer — in the movie's …
Check out the first ever look Superman's alien daddy, Jor-El — as played by the bearded Russell Crowe. Note the lovely alien frock, and Superman "S" emblazoned on his Kryptonion chest?
Anchorman director Adam McKay is already running down his shortlist of actor hopefuls for his live-adaptation of the ultra-violent comic The Boys. Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's comic follows a superpowered CIA group charged with keeping idiotic superheroes in line.
A lonely nerd can't tell the difference between a psychopathic Russell Crowe and a chess-playing sex-bot, and that spells death for dozens of innocent people (including the sex-bot, who secretly longs to be murdered). There's probably a lesson in this clip — the most freaktastic scene from 1995's Virtuosity — but I'm…
