Putting a two-episode taste of HBO’s epic “Game of Thrones” series on IMAX screens has only served to make the argument for weekly theatrical release of each upcoming episode of author George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” fantasy juggernaut. The Season 5 trailer that aired following Thursday night’s Los Angeles IMAX screening of Season 4 episodes “The Watchers on the Wall” and “The Children,” drove the point home.

Tom Hardy rejoins forces with Gary Oldman for their fourth collaboration after The Dark Knight Rises, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Lawless, in murder mystery Child 44. The film sees a hunt for a prolific serial killer in Soviet Russia, where many claim murder just doesn’t happen. Directed by Daniel Espinosa, who graduated to Hollywood with his 2010 hit Safe House, the film looks incredibly tense, with the cold landscape adding to the atmosphere of the film.
We love a bit of Gary Oldman, especially when putting on an accent, and the duo of Oldman and Hardy hasn’t let us down before. Joining them are the likes of Charles Dance, Noomi Rapace, and Vincent Cassel, as well as Oldman’s Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes co-star Jason Clarke. It’s quite the international cast and we can’t wait to see Tom Rob Smith’s novel hit the big screen. »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!
"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.
My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!

Ranking any franchise is a personal and difficult process, but the Alien series represents its own challenges. Were you more affected by the intimate shocks of the 1979 original, or the more action-led 1986 sequel? Were you impressed by Alien 3's commitment to its bleak tone, or irked by its soupy darkness?
You're sure to have your own opinions as to how the Alien movies should be ranked, though we'd wager that, like us, you'd place the Alien Vs Predator spin-offs quite far down the list. But then there's Ridley Scott's prequel, Prometheus, a film some might rank far above Jean-Pierre Jeunet's quirky Alien Resurrection, and perhaps even David Fincher's Alien 3.
Accepting, then, that the ranking below is very much down to personal taste, »

How do you find a killer that doesn't exist? Tom Hardy sets out to answer that question in the official poster for the crime thriller Child 44. The actor stars as a disgraced cop who suddenly finds himself in the middle of an investigation he could have never predicted.
Based on the best-selling novel by Tom Rob Smith, the compelling new thriller, Child 44, is sure to leave a riveting impact on audiences nationwide come April 17th, 2015! A politically-charged serial killer drama set in 1953 Soviet Russia, Child 44 chronicles the crisis of conscience for secret police agent Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy), who loses status, power and home when he refuses to denounce his own wife, Raisa (Noomi Rapace), as a traitor.
One of the more intriguing sounding of the pre-Summer films this year is Daniel Espinosa's "Child 44," the film adaptation of the first book in Tom Rob Smith's acclaimed trilogy which is set in Stalinist-era Russia.
Tom Hardy plays a Soviet police officer investigating a serial killer who is targeting children. But as he digs deeper into the case, his own government begins to suspect him of treason when a colleague frames him. Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace, Joel Kinnaman, Charles Dance, Vincent Cassell, Tara Fitzgerald, Paddy Considine and Fares Fares also star in the film with the trailer due out shortly.
