Although the trailers and other marketing materials being utilized to sell "A Walk Among the Tombstones" will have you believing that it's another run-of-the-mill Liam Neeson thriller, it's not. The movie is intricate and beautifully done, with one of the finer Neeson performances in recent memory, a twisty crime movie plot (based on a Lawrence Block novel of the same name), and nary a superhero in sight. We recently got to chat with Scott Frank, the film's writer/director, who you might know from his long and illustrious resume that includes collaborating with Steven Spielberg ("Minority Report"), Steven Soderbergh ("Out of Sight") and several other people who aren't named Steven (including Jodie Foster, Kenneth Branagh, Barry Sonnenfeld and Aaron Sorkin). He's also one of the most sought after script doctors in Hollywood. During the course of the interview we talked about everything from the pressure of adapting well-known mystery novelists to the. »

Exclusive: Ang Lee will next direct an adaptation of Ben Fountain’s novel Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. It is Lee’s first film since he won the Best Director Oscar for Life Of Pi, and he’s reuniting with Tom Rothman at TriStar. Rothman, who continues to put together filmmaker-centric projects at his Sony-based label, ran Fox and worked closely with Lee on that difficult, groundbreaking, Oscar-winning 3D film that grossed $600 million worldwide. TriStar is teamed with Film4 on the picture, which will begin production in the spring.
It was expected Lee’s next film would be the Peter Morgan-scripted boxing pic about the Thrilla In Manila bout between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, shot in 3D at Universal. They are still working on a budget and the visual effects and look of that picture, but clearly Lee was eager to get back behind the camera.

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, »

George Clooney's latest film "The Monuments Men" may have turned out to be an awards season bust (I still quite liked what he tried to do with that picture), but that doesn't mean he doesn't have a place in the season. Courtesy of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, he'll need to dust off the tux and head to the Beverly Hilton for the Golden Globes in January because he's this year's recipient of the organization's Cecil B. DeMille Award. Previous recipients of the prize, awarded for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment" (but generally perceived as a lifetime achievement honor of sorts), include Woody Allen, Jodie Foster, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese. The first annual honoree was DeMille himself in 1952, followed by the likes of Walt Disney, Bing Crosby, Judy Garland, Bob Hope, James Stewart, John Wayne and on and on. Clooney has always been »

Tonight, Americans have the choice between watching Dancing with the Stars, Monday Night Football, and … a SyFy movie with gay Russian spies on the moon. Curious? You’re not alone: SyFy executives thought the same thing of Bryan Fuller’s newest creation, High Moon. For four years, Fuller and the channel entered into an on-again, off-again relationship. At first it was a pilot, then a miniseries, then back to a pilot, then back to… you get the idea.
“ecause of how strange the development process was at the network, I don’t think anybody was surprised [that it wasn't made into a series],” Fuller said. “Right before we were ordered, »

Glenn here to discuss the latest excursion to the live stage.
It can be easy to bemoan the fate that befalls many female filmmakers. Lord knows I have often found myself lamenting the post breakthrough careers of the likes of Patty Jenkins, Courtney Hunt and others. Those filmmakers for whom a great early work somehow doesn’t permit them the same carte blanche movie projects as male directors like, for example, Marc Webb who got The Amazing Spider-Man off the back of a slight, but popular romantic comedy whereas Kimberly Peirce won her star an Oscar for Boys Don’t Cry and yet it took nine years for a follow-up. Still, as frustrating as it must be to them and to moviegoers when (I assume) financing doesn’t come to them quite as quickly or as robustly as it might another, we thankfully live in a society that doesn’t »

When you think of the Toronto International Film Festival, you probably thing of highbrow arty fare, impenetrable foreign movies, and the kind of creatively functional, feel-good crowd-pleasers that transcend the festival circuit and go on to make lots of money and win lots of Oscars.
And then there's "The Equalizer," Sony's big-screen, Denzel Washington-led adaptation of the '80s crime show, which opened at this year's Toronto International Film Festival. In the movie, Washington's character, a shadowy figure who now works at a Home Depot-style hardware store, gets targeted by Russian mobsters in Boston after he goes out of his way to try and save a young prostitute (Chloe Grace Moretz).
So, no, it's not exactly "The King's Speech."
But that doesn't mean that it should be struck from the festival's program. How does this new "Equalizer" hold up? And, when it opens at the end of the month, »

170 is the amount of days by which Adrien Brody (The Pianist) narrowly defeated Richard Dreyfuss (The Goodbye Girl) to become the Youngest Best Actor winner ever. Do you think both of them deserved their wins?
Adrien Brody (29) and Richard Dreyfus (30) are the 2 youngest Lead Actor winners
1977 Best Actor 2002 Best Actor Woody Allen, Annie Hall Adrien Brody, The Pianist Richard Burton, Equus Nicolas Cage, Adaptation Richard Dreyfus, The Goodbye Girl Michael Caine, The Quiet American Marcelo Mastroianni, A Special Day Daniel Day Lewis, Gangs of New York John Travolta, Saturday Night Fever Jack Nicholson, About Schmidt
The most hilarious thing about this statistic is that Adrien Brody is both the youngest Best Actor winner at 29 And the only twentysomething winner. Meanwhile "29" is actually the most common age to win Best Actress. These eight women all accomplished it and none of them were anywhere close to making a "youngest" list.

We start this cinematic journey by looking at all the upcoming movies September has to offer. This first fall month is a little overcrowded, promising a fine mix of genre fare. We have a couple of Academy worthy dramas making their debut, an untested family franchise starter, a handful of comedies, yet another Ya novel adaptation, an action epic based on a cult classic TV show, the return of an iconic trio and one independent coming-of-age shocker that promises to push the boundaries of everything that has arrived before it.

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
"The Voice" coach Blake Shelton stopped by "The Tonight Show" and played a round of Random Object Football Toss with host Jimmy Fallon, in celebration of the start of football season on Thursday night. The pair attempted to throw items through a target, with mixed results, mostly because the objects were so odd (and mostly food-related). A bowl of eight-layer bean dip ended up making the biggest mess, though unsurprisingly, it was also the most fun for Shelton and Fallon to toss.
Shelton sat down with Fallon to discuss the host's recent purchase of a truck, with the country crooner offering up some advice on how best to care for the vehicle. »

In this week's installment of 10 Stories You Might Have Missed: Anthony and Joe Russo give an update on "Captain America 3." This includes shooting start, more on Bucky, hints at Hawkeye and more.

Also: "American Horror Story: Freak Show" gets a poster, Jodie Foster rumored for "Hannibal," David Lynch almost directed a Kanye West music video, Aphex Twin sets listening parties, "Longmire" seeks a new home, Ridley Scott defends "Exodus" casting, Netflix's "Marco Polo" sets a start date and Martin Scorsese is apparently directing a movie on The Ramones. What was on your dashboard this week? »

This week Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller ran into The Silence of the Lambs star Jodie Foster at an Emmys after-party, and Tweeted an image that ignited enthusiastic fan speculation that Fuller was courting her to direct some episodes of his hit series.
Foster has taken on less acting roles over the last few years, and has instead turned her attention toward directing. She’s directed films like The Beaver and Home for the Holidays, and recently helmed a few episodes of popular Netflix shows House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. The role of Clarice Starling in The Silence of the Lambs is perhaps her most iconic, and fans would love to see her involved in the newest iteration of the series.
According to Fuller, however, it’s not in the cards. Not only does Foster have a full slate of upcoming projects (including the film Money Monster »

At a recent Emmys party, Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller ran into The Silence of the Lambs star Jodie Foster. The result was the enthusiastic Twitter pic you see below. This encounter - a mix of two people hailing from two separate Hannibal screen adaptations - spurred rumors that Fuller was courting Foster for a directing gig on the upcoming third season of Hannibal.
I spoke to Fuller this afternoon and he provided some clarification and sobering truth.
