15 Breakout Stars of Fall

4 September 2012 7:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

It must be Fall! School's finally in session, the weather is getting ever slightly cooler and the offerings at your local movie theater change from big-budget popcorn fare to serious potential award winners.

This autumn the studios have a wide array of noteworthy films to put on your must-see list, from art-house Oscar contenders to teen ensembles and much-anticipated literary and musical adaptations.

We're celebrating the start of Fall with 15 actors who are going to blow audiences away this season. Some have been around for a few years but have yet to break out and others are lucky enough to have their first major roles in buzzworthy movies.

If acclaimed directors like Ang Lee, Paul Thomas Anderson and Peter Jackson saw something in them, we probably will, too.

If Jack Black can make an excellent movie, surely anything is possible

26 July 2012 9:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With Bernie, Black joins the pantheon of maddeningly annoying actors who stop being annoying – even if only for one film

Nothing is more heart-wrenching for the professional curmudgeon than the delightful new movie starring that actor the curmudgeon dislikes. I know many people who cannot stomach Tom Cruise, yet grudgingly had to admit he was pretty good in Collateral, Magnolia, Tropic Thunder and Rock of Ages.

I also know people who dislike Mickey Rourke enormously, but have felt morally bound to concede he was fabulous in The Wrestler. (These tend to be people who never saw him in Diner, the film that seemed to presage a brilliant career which never materialised.) The same thing has happened over the years – both to me and to close friends – with Matthew Broderick (generally horrible, but wonderful in Election), Reese Witherspoon (too perky for words, but superb in Legally Blonde and Election) and Jennifer Aniston (usually quite awful, »

16 Good Guys Gone Bad

8 February 2012 9:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

When it comes to the movies, there are some certainties in life: The guy in front of you is going to be texting through the whole film, popcorn tastes better with butter and Denzel Washington is a hero. But when "Safe House" opens this Friday, all bets are off, as Washington turns heel to play one of the most sinister villains of the year, rogue CIA agent Tobin Frost.

Of course, this isn't the first time Washington has put on the black hat, but it got us thinking: What other Hollywood good guys have taken a ride on the wild side and smashed expectations by dirtying up their heroic reputations? For the answer, take a look at our ultimate countdown of Good Guys Gone Bad.

But watch your back. Because Denzel Washington is out there somewhere -- and there's no telling which side he's on this week.

eOne Entertainment Bringing Home The Devil's Rock and Todd & the Book of Pure Evil in February

18 January 2012 12:46 PM, PST | | See recent Dread Central news »

Two new horror releases are coming our way in the shortest month of the year, and as always we have the skinny for you on the particulars. Read on, oh great one!

February 14th, 2012

On the Eve of D-Day, two Allied commandos sent to destroy a German gun installation uncover a secret occult lair where the Nazis are hiding a deadly she-demon, whom they plan to use to turn the tide of the war. The Devil’S Rock marks the directorial debut of special effects master Paul Campion (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, X-Men: the Last Stand), who crafts a bloody battle from hell in this Nazi-era frightfest. Featuring special effects and make-up by the five-time Academy Award® winning Weta Workshop (Avatar, District 9, Lord of the Rings, King Kong), this WWII-based film has been called “the best Kiwi horror since Peter Jackson’s Brain Dead.”
