The trailer, released by The Weinstein Company, establishes the film's engaging arc – from Margaret's early development as a painter to her »

'Big Eyes' Trailer: Tim Burton Makes a Movie About Normal People

18 September 2014 5:18 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

There's no Johnny Depp or supernatural forces in sight in the trailer for Tim Burton's Big Eyes, but there are plenty of other familiar faces. The true story centers on the relationship between Walter (Christoph Waltz) and Margaret Keane (Amy Adams), who became famous in the 1950s and '60s thanks to popular paintings of big-eyed children. As the trailer shows, Walter took credit for the paintings, which were actually created by Margaret, because he didn't think people would buy art from a woman. The film from The Weinstein Company opens Christmas Day. Krysten Ritter and Jason Schwartzman also star.

Tusk

18 September 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

If you're a Kevin Smith junkie, as I am, you'll appreciate the verbal pinwheels he spins around the horror genre in Tusk. If not, go dull your brain cells at Hollywood multiplex gunk. Tusk feels as offhand and undercooked as a podcast, which is how it started for Smith, so the jokes are hit-and-miss. Justin Long impresses as Wallace, half of an L.A. podcasting team – Teddy (Haley Joel Osment) is the other – specializing in the bizarre. That leads Wallace to Winnipeg, where he meets wealthy recluse Howard Howe (Michael Parks, »

The Oscar race takes shape: Sure things, contenders, and wild cards

18 September 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

It’s September, so why wouldn’t we start predicting an Oscar race that won’t finish for another five months?

To be fair, Venice, Telluride, and the Toronto film festivals have all concluded. Many films have screened. Many films have connected with audiences, and a rough draft of the Oscar race is beginning to come into focus. Sure, no Academy member will even begin popping in those screener DVDs for another couple of months, but it’s still worth discussing what has buzz and what is likely to still be on voters’ minds once the weather finally begins to cool off. »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

'Tusk's' Justin Long on being a walrus and the 'thrill' of Johnny Depp's performance

17 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Justin Long may play a man who gets transformed into a human walrus by a deranged former sailor in Kevin Smith's "Tusk" - but as the actor himself tells it, the upcoming horror-comedy actually wasn't his most difficult movie to shoot. So what was? "'Herbie: Fully Loaded'," said Long during "Tusk's" recent press junket. "For reasons that have nothing to do with prosthetics." Okay, so he was kind of joking (ahem). Needless to say, "Tusk" was pretty difficult in its own right. "To try to do a convincing horror movie performance is so exhausting," Long continued. "It's just physically and emotionally draining. So I would say it was that, it was very tiring. And going to these [dark] places...to sit in that for several days at a time, is like, it's not fun. And had it not been for Kevin and the tone that he creates on set, »

How an Internet Hoax Inspired Kevin Smith’s ‘Tusk’

17 September 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Oh my Lord, this is gonna be so fun for me because I am so baked!”

That was how filmmaker Kevin Smith introduced his latest movie, “Tusk,” to a packed house at the Vista Theatre in Hollywood at a special screening Tuesday night. Fresh off its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, where critics and audiences hailed the quirky flick as a return to form for Smith, A24 opens the film in theaters nationwide this Friday.

The horror-comedy tells the story of a podcaster named Wallace (Justin Long) who travels to Canada in search of an interview and is instead held captive by a madman (Michael Parks) who aims to surgically transform him into a walrus.The idea actually came about after a man in Brighton, England, put out an ad offering free rent to anyone willing to dress in a walrus suit and pretend to be said animal for two hours a day. »
