6 February 2016 9:30 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Christoph Waltz says teaming up with The The Movember Foundation was "a no brainer." "Men can often pretend to be tough guys and don't seek medical treatment when they should," Waltz tells People. "But prostate and testicular cancer are killers and there is nothing manly about trying to make cancer go away by ignoring it." The Movember Foundation, which has raised over $650 million dollars in the span of just over 10 years, is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives by raising awareness about prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.

Watch: Honest Trailer For Bond-By-The-Numbers 'Spectre'

2 February 2016 10:16 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

James Bond returned last fall with "Spectre," and the movie has not achieved the commercial success of "Skyfall" nor did it continue the franchise revitalization vibe of "Casino Royale." So what was it? Well, Screen Junkies is here with their latest Honest Trailer to break it all down. Read More: Review: Sam Mendes' 'Spectre,' Starring Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux & Ralph Fiennes   Calling it quite accurately "Bond-by-the-numbers," the video takes the movie to task for dully running down the expected Bond tropes, including fancy cars, gadgets, catchphrases, and women (or as they call them, "underdeveloped female sex objects" —zing). This Honest Trailer also calls out the predictable Blofeld reveal, as well as the film's penchant for board meetings, briefings, and other stuff you don't want to see in a Bond movie. Check out the Honest Trailer takedown of 007 below. »

James Bond 007: revisiting Spectre

We complete our series looking back at the James Bond movies, with a detailed look at Spectre, starring Daniel Craig...

This article contains big spoilers for Spectre and Star Trek Into Darkness.

Daniel Craig’s fourth or Roger Moore’s eighth? The former of course but you get the point. The almost-realistic stylings of early Craig have given way to the full blown pantomime excess of mid-Moore (or late Connery, in fairness). Desert lairs, endless car chases, free-wheelin’ helicopters and indestructible airplanes are all very much back in vogue. The result is a largely enjoyable, extremely silly film which attempts to tie previous Craig outings together at the expense of consistency and logic. There isn’t a plot: more a succession of scenes stitched together. And it still can’t manage a decent finale! Fun but ultimately frivolous. Now who does that remind me of?

What the Critics’ Choice Awards Can Tell Us About Oscar

18 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

The Broadcast Film Critics Association handed out their Critics’ Choice Awards last evening in Los Angeles and is the first awards ceremony since the Academy released their official nominations last Thursday.

Those looking to the Critics’ Choice Awards in hopes of fleshing out their Oscar predictions will notice a few differences between last week’s Golden Globes and Sunday’s awards in the major categories. Most notably is the fact that Spotlight won best picture after being entirely shut out by the HFPA at the Globes.

Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant), Sylvester Stallone (Creed), and Brie Larson (Room) all repeated their Globes success with acting wins, but Swedish actress Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) took home the best supporting actress award in lieu of Kate Winslet’s (Steve Jobs) win the week before.

Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller took home the night’s best director award, »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2016: #59. Alexandros Avranas’ True Crimes

9 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

True Crimes

Director: Alexandros Avranas

Writer: Jeremy Brock

One of the most exciting directorial debuts out of 2013 was Alexandros AvranasMiss Violence, a domestic drama lumped into the growing Greek Weird Wave movement. Initially, Avranas announced another Greek language project with returning cast members of his first film, but instead he’s inherited this Us-Polish co-production, True Crimes, concerning the murder investigation of a slain businessman and based on a 2008 New Yorker article by David Grann. A couple years ago, this was a property announced for Roman Polanski and set to star Christoph Waltz—however, Polanski’s weathered several delays in his other developing project, The Dreyfuss Affair, explaining why it’s navigated elsewhere. We’re curious to see what Avranas does with the thriller, considering it stars Jim Carrey, whose serious minded efforts can be hit or miss. Supporting cast mates like Gainsbourg, Kaurismaki regular Kati Outinen, and character »
