Warner Bros. confirmed on Monday that Jeff Robinov will be stepping down as studio chief and will be replaced by a troika of executives who are being handed additional oversight authority. The three are Sue Kroll, Greg Silverman and Toby Emmerich. In addition, the studio is extending the contract of distribution chief Dan Fellman. The leadership troika and Fellman will report directly to Warner's CEO, Kevin Tsujihara. Details of Robinov's departure were virtually nonexistent, except for an internal memo in which CEO Tsujihara remarked that Robinov will no longer serve as President of Warner Bros. Pictures Group.
Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' will be a trilogy, the director has announced.
Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' will be a trilogy.
The eagerly anticipated adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's book was originally supposed to be in two parts but Peter says after reviewing footage he has already shot he believes there is enough to support a third.
He said: ''Upon recently viewing a cut of the first film, and a chunk of the second, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens and I were very pleased with the way the story was coming together. We realised that the richness of the story of 'The Hobbit', as well as some of the related material in the appendices of 'The Lord Of The Rings', gave rise to a simple question: do we tell more of the tale? And The Answer from our perspective as filmmakers and fans was an unreserved 'yes.'

Questions arose again on Tuesday over why Time Warner continues to operate two film companies, Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema, after Deadline.com reported that New Line releases will be cut in half -- from eight to four -- annually. Deadline indicated that the decision was made by Warner Bros.' new chief Jeff Robinov, who it said plans to reduce the number of movies the division plans to release "in order to be able to focus attention on its winners." Shareholders have long complained that studios put out too many films each year, to which studio executives have generally replied that Diversity spreads out the risk -- that seemingly sure-fire hits sometimes bomb and arty, off-beat flicks sometimes triumph. Deadline reported that New Line, the onetime home for successful off-beat flicks -- but better known today as the home of The Lord Of The Rings franchise, including (with MGM) the upcoming two-part The Hobbit -- will remain a separate entity, headed by Toby Emmerich, but said Deadline's source, "he may not like the structure of the company and decide to move on."

I'm not talking about Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon, who are asked to do what they've done in previous comedies, and happily oblige. Vaughn, in particular, continues to ride that motor-mouthed ego shtick of his with very humorous results. His condescending personality should have worn out its welcome shortly after Wedding Crashers, yet somehow it still manages to entertain.

Director Gavin O'Connor certainly understands the difference between the two. Though Glory lays out a complex yet solvable mystery, it's far more interested in loyalty and the familial bonds that exist among lifetime police officers. It also wears its adoration for the badge -- and those who wear it -- on its sleeve.

It's 1882, and the intimidating landowner Randall Bragg (Jeremy Irons) casts a long shadow over the New Mexico town of Appaloosa. With three booming gun blasts, the film establishes Bragg's cold-blooded disdain for authority and utter lack of morals. Man, how I wish Appaloosa gave this character more time to breathe, develop, and wreck proper havoc.

Fracture has no excuse to be so lazy, given the actors at its disposal and a setup that should have made this an easy slam-dunk. Hopkins plays Ted Crawford, an aeronautics engineer who's found out that his wife Jennifer (Embeth Davidtz) is having an affair with police detective Rob Nunally (Billy Burke). Confronting her at home, Crawford shoots her in the head and calmly waits for the cops to arrive. When they do, it's with none other than Nunally at the lead, who's shocked and enraged at finding Jennifer in a pool of blood and Crawford standing there as though nothing had happened. After a quickly-interrupted beating from Nunally, Crawford later confesses and even waives his right to a lawyer. When it's all dropped in the lap of assistant district attorney Willy Beachum (Gosling), the case couldn't seem more airtight, which is good since Beachum can't wait to slip the bonds of lowly civil employment for a well-paying private sector job.
