“Smuggled, stolen and forged art is a $10 billion business. That’s where I come in.” Those words spoken by soldier-turned-thief Graham Connor (Christian Cooke) at the beginning of Crackle’s official trailer for The Art Of More, its first original scripted series. In the clip we also see Dennis Quaid, who also exec produces, as charismatic real estate shark Samuel Bruckner, Cary Elwes as Arthur Davenport, a shrewed and eccentric world-class collector of art and illegal… »
Fans of the 1987 film The Princess Bride are excited about the recent book by star Cary Elwes's about the making of the film, and it's been making us reminisce about the romantic fantasy classic. The movie is memorable for so many reasons (like Robin Wright's breathtaking beauty, Elwes's breathtaking beauty, Andre the Giant, and R.O.U.S.s), but it may be most famous for its quotable lines. We've rounded up the best ones, which, incidentally, you can still use in your everyday life. »

The '80s film The Princess Bride turns 28 years young today! How old are we again?! The film, starring Cary Elwes and Robin Wright, opened in theaters on Sept. 25, 1987. Although not initially a crowd-pleaser, the film became an unforgettable cult classic over the last two (almost three!) decades. In the spirit of celebration, we're checking in on the stars who played our favorite characters to see how where they are today. So grab your true love and walk down memory lane with us! Cary Elwes as Westley. Once a babe, always a babe. Swoon! Robin Wright as Princess Buttercup. We still want to hit up that closet and play »
It’s not quite a comeback, but after a long period of schmaltzy misfires, it’s encouraging to see Rob Reiner once again directing a film set amid real, recognizable humans with real, recognizable issues in “Being Charlie.” An intriguing collaboration between the director and his son (Nick Reiner, who wrote the screenplay alongside Matt Elisofon), this study of an 18-year-old addict, struggling through rehab programs while his Hollywood-player father makes a run at politics, is clearly a personal one for the filmmaker, and that sense of investment — along with some of the more interestingly unpolished first-timer edges of the script — makes for a film that generally succeeds in spite of its formulaic underpinnings and loose ends. It seems unlikely to do more than modest business, but hopefully it represents a turning point in Reiner’s filmmaking trajectory.
Now 22, the younger Reiner went through numerous stints in rehab prior to his 18th birthday, »

After the initial slate for the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival was announced last month there were many observers, including this pundit, who wondered of the annual September event had once again lost the battle of premieres to its Fall festival cousins. While debuting Ridley Scott's "The Martian," Jean Marc Valle's "Demolition" and Michael Moore's "Where Do We Invade Next" is nothing to sneeze at the fact some of the most anticipated films of the year are heading to Venice and Telluride first has to be a bit disheartening. Especially when it's your 40th anniversary. Never fear fans of the Great White North, Toronto always seems to land some eyebrow raising last minute additions and this year is no different. Today Tiff announced that David Gordon Green's "Our Brand Is Crisis" with Sandra Bullock, Marc Abraham's "I Saw The Light" with Tom Hiddleston, Catherine Hardwicke's "Miss You Already »

The Art Of More is a groundbreaking drama starring Dennis Quaid (“Vegas,” Any Given Sunday) that goes into the underbelly and surprisingly cutthroat world of premium auction houses. We follow a blue collar young man, Graham Connor, played by Christian Cooke (“Magic City”) who leverages his way into this exclusive realm by exploiting connections to antiquities smuggling rings he was exposed to as a soldier in Iraq. Kate Bosworth (Still Alice) plays the role of Roxanna Whitney, daughter of the CEO of one of the two warring auction houses—and a leading account executive. Although she was born into this exclusive world and thrives in it, she is riddled with insecurities that drive »

Tony Award–winning, Wales-born actor Roger Rees died Friday at the age of 71, Entertainment Weekly confirms. He won the Tony for Best Actor in 1982 for his turn in The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, and subsequently earned an Emmy nomination for the television adaptation. He soon segued into more mainstream roles on the classic show Cheers, playing the snobbish love interest of Kristie Alley, as well as British ambassador Lord John Marbury on The West Wing. In his most prominent film role, as the dastardly Sherif of Rottinham in Mel Brooks's Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Rees had the rare honor of slapping Cary Elwes across the face with a glove, subsequently taking an iron gauntlet to the face himself. »

Saw was one of the films that pioneered what has now come to be known as ‘torture porn’. Arriving in 2004 the film had two strangers awaken in a grotty bathroom, each shackled to a pipe. There only way out was to saw through their ankles with a rusty, and rather flimsy, hacksaw blade. The pair were part of a ‘trap’ devised by a deviant new serial killer who wasn’t really a serial killer. Sounds confusing I know, but Jigsaw aka John Kramer, believed that confronting people with their morality and their indiscretions at the same time made them appreciate life more if they lived. Granted, most of his subjects died horrifically rather than survived.
The series ran for seven films, the last one featuring the added 3D factor, and had several incarnations of Jigsaw continue the work started by Kramer. The first few films went from strength to strength at the box office, »
