Nicolas Cage and his wife Alice Kim have been separated since January, the actor's rep confirms to People. The couple, who would have celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary in August, share one son, Kal-el Coppola Cage, 10. Cage, 52, met Kim, 32, in February 2004 when she served him while working as a waitress in a Los Angeles restaurant. They were engaged two months later before tying the knot on a ranch in Northern California. This is Cage's third marriage: He was wed to Lisa Marie Presley for almost four months in 2002 before filing for divorce, and, prior to that, to Patricia Arquette for five years. »

Title sequences don’t have to be boring. They can be just as exciting, creative, or innovative as the films they introduce. These are our picks for the 10 best opening title sequences of feature films.

It’s an ideal spot to introduce musical themes, set a stylistic tone, or establish a directorial style. During the opening titles a filmmaker has the opportunity to explain a backstory, show a flashback, or even dictate the setting to the audience. »

"The Hangover" director Todd Phillips has been getting darker and meaner in his various works with time, not always to his benefit as his knack for that style of comedy isn't as strong as his skill with more outrageous slapstick gags.
With his newest film though, he's going for an outright drama with darkly comedic elements, a film about two twenty-something friends (Miles Teller and Jonah Hill) who exploit a little-known government initiative that allows small businesses to bid on U.S. military contracts - raking in big money in the process. Things get out of hand when they win a contract to arm the Afghan army.
Though described as a more fratboy-ish version of "Lord of War," the trailer is simply begging for viewers to make comparisons to Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" but lacks the obvious sheen and quality that comes with that film. Still, it has »
