Neil Labute aims at the angst and entitlement of yuppies like a kid with a magnifying glass, torturing ants. He writes and directs comedies where you're not really laughing: you're choking on your own discomfort as he pokes and prods the sexual crises of the bored, the rich, the spoiled, the middle-classed. Which is to say many of us. Cuckolds, man-babies and emotional eunuchs are some of the types you'll encounter in Labute's films, which are brazenly, specifically about the facade of the American hegemony, and the fictions it is barely concealing. You'd never known from his savagely charming and scabrous comedies that Labute is a lapsed Mormon who, before getting kicked out of the Church of Lds in the late-1990s for a deemed-to-be offensive off-Broadway play, started at Brigham Young, where he met one of his earliest screen co-conspirators, actor Aaron Eckhart.

If you can land Tom Hanks as your film's dramatic lead, you're already on your way to forming a cast worth the time of your audience. When you bring Aaron Eckhart as his first co-star, the marquee starts to brighten even more . especially considering Clint Eastwood is the director lucky enough to be guiding both actors in a biopic based off of Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger's cracker jack landing on the Hudson River.

Hopefully by now we all know the story of Mary Shelley.s Frankenstein . a scientist experimenting with the reanimation of corpses brings to life a man, though a monstrous man at that. There have been many spins on the tale since then, including one starring Aaron Eckhart that should stay in the shadows where it belongs, and the Victor Frankenstein trailer shows yet another, more explosive twist. Instead of being a lonely little hunchback, as he.s commonly portrayed, Radcliffe.s Igor is Victor Frankenstein.s contemporary, and the two form a very Sherlock Holmes-y relationship. (The »

Miles Teller is currently blowing up, thanks to his Esquire interview read around the world. But aside from the whole "dickish" persona described in the pages . with which, by the way, the actor takes issue . we.re learning a great deal about some of his earlier projects, notably Whiplash. Though the film ended up getting nominated for a number of Oscars, the lead star got paid a pretty low number for the project. How low, exactly? $8,000. That may seem like a lot to some people, but when you factor in the months of production needed to make any feature film, it.s pretty low. Though, it is more than he was paid when he was first starting out. Teller.s first feature film was Rabbit Hole in 2010. The film starred Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart as a couple who lose their son in an accident. Teller plays the boy responsible »
