If you thought there was a chance you might see Jeff Bridges don his iconic bathrobe one more time we’ve got some troubling news for you. Joel and Ethan Coen are attending the Cannes Film Festival to promote their latest film “Inside Llewyn Davis,” and the duo sat down to answer questions at a press event. Inevitably the conversation turned to their cult classic “The Big Lebowski” and whether or not they would want to take on a sequel. Over the years actors, John Turturro has been leading the charge in making a sequel, one that would center on his character, Jesus Quintanta. Although he's only in 'Lebowski' for a couple of scenes, he's a fan favorite, and he's been pitching the Coens on a followup, and has spoken to the press about it too (read all about it in our feature 5 Things You Might Not Know About The »

Ripd: City of the Damned Tpb
Written by Jeremy Barlow
Art by Tony Parker and Colourist Michelle Madsen
Published by Dark Horse
In light of this summer’s major motion picture with Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges, Dark Horse brings us the collected Ripd: City of the Damned. Detailing the first adventure of recently deceased Us Marshall and Old West hero Roy Pulsipher, writer Jeremy Barlow offers up some fresh new backstory and context that expands and colours the Ripd universe.
For the uninitiated, Ripd stands for the Rest In Peace department, a supernatural, undead police force dedicated to assuring the protection of the living from lost souls wandering the earth. They’re sort of like Men In Black with Judeo/Christian mythology instead of aliens. City of the Damned begins with the death of Pulsipher, and then introduces us to his first mentor/partner in the department, a Puritan »

This TV spot for R.I.P.D. (Rest in Peace Department) has me in stitches already. Officer Nick Walker (Ryan Reynolds) has recently been murdered only to join the afterlife in much the same role he left it. Now he’s a supernatural cop. Check out this TV spot for how he and his partner (Jeff Bridges) appear to the living.

It reminds me so much of Dead Like Me, which I love.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... well, Ok, 30 years ago (on May 25, 1983) in our own galaxy, came the theatrical release of "Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi." The installment triumphantly wrapped up the "Star Wars" saga for all time. Or so we thought. Little did we know that the movie's cuddly-but-ferocious Ewoks would soon spawn a cottage industry of spinoffs, or that we'd be getting a trilogy of "Star Wars" prequels in another 16 years, and "Jedi" sequels another 15 years after that ("Episode VII" is due in 2014). Nor did we know, at the time, how close "Jedi" came to being an art-house film (judging by the directors whom "Star Wars" guru George Lucas initially asked to take the helm), or how close we came to losing Han Solo (Harrison Ford), or many of the other secrets of "jedi," which you can read below. 1.

This is the first TV spot for the supernatural action thriller R.I.P.D., which stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges. It's an action-packed new trailer that offers up some extremely fun new footage. The movie was directed by Robert Schwentke (Red), and it's looks like it will be worth checking out this summer!

(Due to overpopulation, some unsettled spirits haven't gone where they're supposed to, and are hiding out).

Is it possible for a TV spot to be better than a movie's actual trailer? That's the case with "R.I.P.D.," whose new TV teaser does a better job capturing our interest than the trailer that was released last month.
There's plenty of new footage in this spot and it just seems to work better -- and feel like less of a "Men in Black" rip-off -- than what was previously released. Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds seem to have some fun chemistry together, and it's nice that this TV spot plays up the comedy and action aspects of the film instead of just teasing its entire plot.
Ultimately the tone of "R.I.P.D." will likely determine how well it does with audiences. It easily could veer into too-cheesy comedy territory, in which case it might not fare well. But there's plenty of darkness to cull from in a film about an undead police force, »

Whether or not you think Catherine Martin has already won this year's Costume Design Oscar - paging pink-suited Jay Gatsby! -- the upcoming battle for Oscar nominations is hardly an easy read even if there are only four spots to sashay towards in your suit & gown finery. Costume Design is my favorite Oscar race outside of all the Actressing, not frequently for what the Academy chooses but for the breadth and depth of the competitive field each year. Here's a few questions I'm already asking myself and by extension, you. So join me in the sartorial contemplation...
Steven Noble's work on "Two Faces of January" looks just divine in stills. How's the film?
This far ahead of the nominations (only 242 days to go!) it's anyone's guess and anyone's game.
Which frequently forgotten designer will finally get the red carpet welcoming committee?
The possible answers are plentiful so let's talk four of them. »
