The highly anticipated and critically acclaimed political drama, House of Cards: The Complete Second Season, produced by Media Rights Capital, arrives on Blu-ray and DVD June 17 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The series returns with two-time Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey (American Beauty, Best Actor in a Leading Role, 1999; The Usual Suspects, Best Actor in a Supporting Role; 1995) as the newly appointed Vice President of the United States, along with Robin Wright, this year's Golden Globe winner for her role as his wife, Claire Underwood (Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama). This series continues to sizzle with intensity as the ruthless Underwoods stop at nothing to climb the political food chain.
All 13 episodes will be available on the four-disc Blu-ray and four-disc DVD sets for House of Cards: The Complete Second Season with stunning collectible packaging on both releases, along with five bonus featurettes. »
I’m not going to delude myself and think that we’re going to start a revolution, and that Urban Legends: Final Cut will somehow surpass Halloween as the better film. But just hear me out; it’s a much better film than people have ever given it credit to be.
I was surfing around Netflix and saw it had been added; I own the DVD but as is with our age of digital gratification I popped it on anyways. As the credits started I remembered back to when I first saw it. The year was 2000, and I was looking through the DVD selection at my local Ames; a chain long since extinct, and I spotted it. I didn’t even have internet at the time- (go ahead and judge), and had heard nothing about a sequel to Urban Legends. I bought it sight unseen after reading the description, for a modest $24.99.

Kevin Spacey was the toast of New York at a Museum of the Moving Image gala celebrating the actor Wednesday night. The two-time Oscar winner delivered a funny, touching speech at the 28th annual salute, filled with anecdotes about The Usual Suspects and Jack Lemmon, among other stories, along with Spacey's impressions of Lemmon and Bill Clinton. Before Spacey accepted his award, a glass bowl that he pretended to bobble as if he were going to drop the fragile prize, many of his famous colleagues paid tribute to the actor.

“Who is Kevin Spacey? The man’s talent has more facets than a diamond,” said Chazz Palminteri at Museum of the Moving Image’s salute to the “House of Cards” actor Wednesday night on the Upper East Side.
As clips played from some of his most standout works like “The Negotiator,” “American Beauty” and “The Usual Suspects,” Spacey said he had not seen them since the actual screening of the film. He also noted a scene from “Glengarry Glen Ross” with his “friend, mentor and father figure,” Jack Lemmon, whom he credits as the impetus for moving to New York and becoming an actor.
“Having him around was just very inspirational for somebody young and kind of like sort of lackadaisical,” Badgley said of himself during the cocktail hour at the 583 Park Ave. »

That first trailer naturally earned itself a spot on our Top 25 Trailers of 2013, and we’ve been looking forward to what would come next. With just a few more months to go before it arrives, we’re due a new look at the sci-fi/actioner, and Warner Bros. haven’t disappointed.
The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.
Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, »

Man, it sure looks like Bryan Singer’s got his “X-Men” groove back, because this new trailer for his “X-Men: Days of Future Past” is pretty damn epic. Of course, if you were never a fan of Singer, then this is unlikely to change your mind. But fortunately I’ve always been a fan of his, from “The Usual Suspects” to “Apt Pupil” to, yes, even “Superman Returns.” (Except for all those silly Lex Luthor scenes, there was absolutely nothing wrong with that movie, I don’t care what you fanboys say.) Anyhoos. Check out a new and pretty badass trailer for “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” As the kids would say, it looks like things are about to get real, yo. And oh yeah, check out the new poster for the movie, including Professor X’s amazing floating chair. The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival »
With a big budget, great writers and two beautiful stars, this could have been a classic. Instead it's boring mumblefest with a rubbish twist – and it's on Channel 4 at 9pm tonight
[Warning: contains spoilers]
"This man is a tourist!" – Elise
The Tourist should have been a raging success. A sumptuous $100m Hitchcockian thriller, set in the most impossibly scenic slivers of Europe, starring two of the most intimidatingly beautiful people alive. A script by Christopher McQuarrie from The Usual Suspects and Julian Fellowes from Downton Abbey. Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, who won an Oscar for The Lives of Others, in the director's chair. What could have possibly gone wrong?
A lot, it turns out. Although blame has been assigned to everything from a constant churn of writers, directors and stars to the incredibly short production turnaround, the fact is that The Tourist is a colossal hodgepodge of wasted opportunity. Or at least »

Supernatural comedy is all the rage these days, and Geek & Sundry is getting in on the fun. Felicia Day's YouTube channel is teaming up with Bryan Singer's Bad Hat Harry production company for Spooked, a TV-length digital series. Spooked follows a "Paranormal Investigation Team" as it investigates paranormal events across the globe. According to a press release, the first episode will feature a poltergeist who is trying to ruin his daughter's gay marriage, and will feature Dichen Lachman and Alison Haislip as guest stars. Four episodes are planned, with each one coming in a sitcom-length, 22-minute package. As with Geek & Sundry's last scripted web series, Caper, Spooked will be distributed on Hulu as well as YouTube. Spooked is co-produced by Singer, best known for his work on films like X-Men and The Usual Suspects as well as the TV series House. “It’s been a thrill to expand »

A salacious yet also tedious portrayal of a woman who would appear to confirm all the nastiest stereotypes about women. Completely unfun, unpleasant, unerotic, and unenlightening. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of Lars von Trier
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
In a cinematic environment in which women were depicted, overall, as fully rounded human beings with a wide range of sexual expression available to them without judgment or disapproval, Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac would still be a disgusting, degrading portrait of a terrible person that is completely unfun, unpleasant, unerotic, and unenlightening. But in the cinematic environment we actually have, it is a salacious yet also tedious portrayal of a woman who would appear to confirm all the nastiest stereotypes about women: that they sexually prey upon and sexually manipulate men purely for the power rush of it, »

The Rubicon prequel arrived in my inbox couple of days ago and I watched it with with very low expectations. But, after watching the 12-minute episode, consider me a huge fan of the concept. The project is a prequel to the 2012 Archaia and Meteor Entertainment graphic novel written by retired Army Major Mark Long (The Silence of our Friends), Seal Team Six founding member Dan Capel and writer/director Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Jack Reacher, Edge of Tomorrow). The project was first announced back in 2011 at NY Comic-Con as a transmedia project aiming for a feature length film and video game in addition to a graphic novel. Fast forward to 2014 and we have a pilot from director Christian Johnston that features Matt Bushell as the rough and ready CIA operative Mike and Ken Lally as his handler, Smash.

As stars continue to be inspired by the movie almost 20 years on, we take a fond look back at the cast and what they went on to do after Clueless:
Alicia Silverstone (Cher Horowitz)
Prior to Clueless, Silverstone's credits included ABC comedy-drama The Wonder Years and a number of Aerosmith videos. The film propelled her to further fame, and she went on to star in Joel Schumacher's 1997 movie Batman & Robin, crime-comedy Excess Baggage (1997) with Benicio Del Toro and Christopher Walken, and romantic drama Blast from the Past (1999) opposite Brendan Fraser. »
Have you ever dreamed about what it might be like to relive the same day over and over again in an endless search for the perfect 24 hour period of existence? Of course you haven't, for that is the plot of much-loved Bill Murray/Harold Ramis comedy classic Groundhog Day, and each and every possible hilarious scenario has already been played out for you via one of the sharpest and most intuitive scripts of all time.
Edge of Tomorrow, 20 minutes of which was screened for bloggers and film journalists at an event in London earlier this week, is like Groundhog Day with stringy aliens and Tom Cruise. Admittedly, there are a few other minuscule differences between Doug Liman's upcoming sci-fi piece and its forebear: Cruise is using his unusual predicament »

Days after Dean Winter was announced as co-lead of Breaking Bad czar Vince Gilligan's new CBS drama Battle Creek, the Wrap is reporting that Bryan Singer, of X-Men and The Usual Suspects fame, will direct the pilot episode. The show, which will also feature Kal Penn and Janet McTeer as well as a yet unannounced second lead, concerns two polar opposite detectives working out of a Michigan town. »

Announced last September , "Battle Creek," the upcoming AMC series from "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan, has, according to Deadline , found a pilot helmer in Bryan Singer ( The Usual Suspects , X-Men ). A contemporary detective drama, "Battle Creek" is set for a full first season order. "House" creator David Shore will serve as showrunner, executive producing alongside Gilligan and Mark Johnson. Singer also directed Shore's "House" pilot. Set in Battle Creek, Michigan, the series pairs two detectives with wildly disparate personalities. That's somewhat familiar territory for Gilligan, who launched his television career as a writer, director and producer on "The X-Files." "Battle Creek" was initially »
Now it’s gettin’ good, right? This section of the list begins to get into the portion where “you’ve heard it before.” A number of the films below have been universally acclaimed for one reason or another, but the focus here is on the writing. Some are innovative, some are unexpected, and some completed changed the way films were written, creating a new style or sub-genre. After all, isn’t that what makes for good writing?

I don’t wanna kill anybody. But if I gotta get out that door, and you’re standing in my way, one way or the other, you’re gettin’ outta my way.

Shawn Ashmore has opened up about returning to the role of Iceman for X-Men Days of Future Past.
X-Men Days of Future Past: The making of Bryan Singer's superhero epic
Ashmore has recently expressed his thoughts on combining the casts of both the original X-Men trilogy and First Class.
"It's amazing," he told Access Hollywood.
"The great thing about these movies is not only do you spend a fair amount of time together shooting the film 'cause you shoot for a long time on a big sort of studio, tent pole movie like this, but then you go off for a couple months, everybody does their own thing, you come back for sort of like the press tour."
The actor continued: "After The Last Stand »
Oscar 2014 presenters range from Alfred Hitchcock heroine to ’12 Years a Slave’ producer (photo: Oscar 2014 presenter Jennifer Lawrence) Expect at least a couple of standing ovations at the 2014 Academy Awards ceremony to be held on Oscar Sunday, March 2, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles. Oscar 2014 producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced earlier today the complete list of movie celebrities — all actors, including a handful of actor-directors / actor-producers — who will be presenters at the ceremony, to be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, and which will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide — even in the United States, via the ABC network. (See the full list below.) Among the Oscar 2014 presenters, you’ll find a number of past Oscar winners and nominees. With a couple of exceptions, not from the very distant past, mind you, as the overwhelming majority of presenters are performers working in »

Multi-talented, super-fit, sexy Aussie, Hugh Jackman has pretty much become synonymous with Wolverine, since being cast and owning that part in Bryan Singer’s first X-Men film, back in 2000. He has successfully proven his acting chops in many other genres such as dramas, musicals, and romantic period films. However, with his long-running role as X-Men’s mutant Logan/Wolverine, he has captivated comic-book fans worldwide and undoubtedly doubled his female audience, thanks to his “special genetic mutation,” which has clearly enhanced his physical capabilities both on and off screen.
When a group of us visited the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past last summer, we had the privilege of meeting and chatting with the gracious buff actor, who so kindly treated the entire production to special ordered Aussie sweets for their afternoon break. May I add, aside from being one of the nicest people ever, he is beyond hot, »
