Into the Woods poster showcases Meryl Streep and a wall of text

5 hours ago

Tom Hiddleston will star in Legendary's King Kong film Skull Island

6 hours ago

Legendary surprised everyone at this year's Sdcc panel with the reveal of a brand new King Kong flick. Given the success of Godzilla, it may have seemed like a no brainer, but a welcome one nonetheless. With the amount of effects work films like these tend to have, the team in front of and behind the camera can only stay hidden for so long, and we've got a hell of a name to kick Skull Island off. Legendary just announced that Loki himself, Tom Hiddleston, will star with Jordan »

Matthew McConaughey explores icy planet in new poster for Interstellar

11 hours ago

For the November issue of Empire, director Christopher Nolan helped pick out an image from his Interstellar for the cover. Apparently Nolan liked the picture quite a bit, because it's also the latest poster for his upcoming film. You can check out the poster and Empire cover below, and to me it looks like they could have been from Ridley Scott's Prometheus, although it's probably only because both were filmed in Iceland and involve astronauts. Matty Ice? »

This Week in Blu-ray / DVD Releases: Godzilla, The Fault in Our Stars, Arrow

18 hours ago

This week: Godzilla roars back, Leatherface revs up for his 40th, and fighting itchy eyes with The Fault in Our Stars. ► Godzilla really was the summer’s misfit blockbuster, refusing to go the ‘Transformers’ route and puke out two hours of CGI monster fights. It was a strangely muted, surprisingly somber remake which stuck close to the environmental spirit of the very first Godzilla flick. Yes, you wait »

Review: Men, Women & Children (Tiff 2014)

15 September 2014 10:20 AM, PDT

Plot: An examination of the way technology influences the values and sexuality of a close-knit suburban community. Review: Among the flurry of big premieres to hit Tiff this year, one of the the most polarizing titles proved to be Jason Reitman's Men, Women & Children. Some are hailing it as a sobering indictment of our times, while others say it's a melodramatic, achingly sincere mess. The truth is somewhere in the middle. While it can't be said that Reitman hasn't made a film of »
