Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week
What's It About? That's a very good question. Scarlett Johansson plays a mysterious woman who drives around the Scottish countryside looking for male hitchhikers. To reveal more would be a disservice to the movie... and difficult, since this atmospheric science-fiction film is open to interpretation.
Why We're In: Director Jonathan Glazer's very, very loose adaptation of the Michel Faber novel is disturbing and sexy. Plus, they used hidden cameras to film Johansson luring clueless hitchhikers into her big white van.
Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg has taken movie audiences on extravagant adventures of a lifetime during his lengthy course behind the camera when impacting the film industry with his captivating on-screen imagination. Spielberg has shown an amazing range of vision and scope when tackling various movie genres that tap in the collective consciousness of moviegoers. Science fiction, social issue dramas, action and adventure, period pieces, family-oriented fantasies, comedies, war movies–you name it and Spielberg has done it on the big screen in his illustrious film career in directing, producing, writing and promoting.
Although Spielberg has done his share of adult-oriented films that cater to the sophisticated masses he is primarily known for his whimsical kid-friendly fare or at least releases that feature children in some of his escapist gems that may not necessarily be considered kiddie-coated.

Fans of Scandal know Guillermo Díaz as torture-addicted Gladiator Huck, who’s been known to lick his colleague-turned-enemy-turned-lover Quinn (Katie Lowes) and do unspeakable things to her in parking garages. Nearly 20 years ago, though, Díaz was an emerging actor who’d just starred opposite Parker Posey in Party Girl and was looking for a breakout gig. Enter Stonewall.
Díaz booked his first leading role as La Miranda, a larger-than-life drag queen (and I’m not just talking about her hair), in Nigel Finch’s fictionalized account of the days leading up to the birth of the modern Lgbt rights movement »

Michael Douglas Admits Mistakes
Douglas, 69, appeared at the 42nd Annual AFI Life Achievement Award Gala – which was honoring Jane Fonda – in Los Angeles with Zeta-Jones. Walking the red carpet outside the Dolby Theater, Douglas was asked about how the two managed to come back to one another after the separation.
“First you have to admit that you made a mistake, then dealing with it is easy,” Douglas said, according to The Sun. “Of course it’s important to make mistakes, as long as you grow from them.”
“When you are younger you care what other people think and you take the person closest to you for granted,” he added. “You waste a lot of energy on strangers to make a good impression. When you’re older you focus that »

Irvine plays young gay man Danny Winters, who discovers his love for politics during the turbulent times. Upon arrival in New York, he is led to the Stonewall Inn, where he meets the suave Trevor, played by Rhys Meyers.
June 28 will mark the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, in which New York City police raided a Greenwich Village gay dive bar called the Stonewall Inn. It wasn’t unusual for cops to harass and even arrest customers at gay clubs in 1969 — but this time, the Stonewall’s regulars fought back. The confrontation that ensued helped spark the gay civil rights movement.
It’s currently Day 5 on the Montreal set of Stonewall, a $20 million indie about the historic riot that stars Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Match Point), and Ron Perlman (Drive). But what’s most fascinating »

Siesta Fest: Aragon’s English Language Debut Incredibly Forced
The one discernible reason to watch Cuban director Emilio Aragon’s English language debut, A Night in Old Mexico, would be to see star Robert Duvall front and center dancing circles around the cringe worthy supporting cast. To be fair, his is the only character granted any kind of depth, as written by screenwriter William D. Wittliff, reteaming with Duvall for the first time since the memorable 1989 television miniseries, “Lonesome Dove.” It’s a project that’s reputed to be nearly 35 years in the making, but the end product can’t quite justify the means with this reunion that feels akin to Duvall’s last stint as director, 2002’s Assassination Tango (an effort that feels far superior in comparison).
About to lose the property that’s been in his family for generations, Texas rancher Red Bovie (Robert Duvall) is contemplating suicide »

Director Roland Emmerich is taking a break from high-octane action tentpoles this Summer to shoot "Stonewall," his labor-of-love set in the gay civil rights milieu of 1969. Adapted from Jon Robin Baitz's script, the film is now in production, with new cast members Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman and Joey King now on board. Given that June is Lgbt Pride Month, the timing is right as stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman and Joey King join cast members Jeremy Irvine ("War Horse"), Caleb Landry Jones ("X-Men: First Class") and Jonny Beauchamp ("How to Make It in America") in this drama centered on the Stonewall Riots. High ratings and reception for Ryan Murphy's AIDS drama for HBO, "The Normal Heart," are also spurring interest in this film, which focuses on one young man (Irvine) who comes of age amid a wildly turbulent New York moment. HBO will also bring gay »

King will play the sister of Irvine's character.

The 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City were a landmark moment of the gay civil rights movement, and with a cast that includes Jeremy Irvine (War Horse) and Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors), a new movie about the protest has all the makings of prestigious Oscar bait. And it might be. But the film, scripted by Brothers & Sisters creator Jon Robin Baitz, has a surprising director: Roland Emmerich.
