‘From Paris with Love’ Red Band Trailer

17 September 2009 10:16 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

John Travolta: the name used to be synonymous with dancing, bad accents, Scientology, and mediocre films. Then Pulp Fiction came out and reminded everyone in Hollywood that he’s actually a pretty good leading man. Often times he plays such an intriguing bad guy, that one can’t help but enjoy his performance, whether you want to or not.  Arguably, he was the best part about Face/Off, Primary Colors, A Civil Action, The General’s Daughter, Swordfish and even the ridiculous Battlefield Earth.

After this summer’s mild hit The Taking of Pelham 123, Travolta will channel his best Denzel Washington from Training Day in Pierre Morel’s latest action flick From Paris with Love.  Co-starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors, August Rush) as an embassy worker who gets paired up with Detective Wax (Travolta) in Paris, the two seem to work together on a French drug deal - or are they? »

'Harry Potter' Wizard, 'True Blood' Fang-Banger And Disney's Favorite Genie In Birthday Bash

20 July 2009 8:00 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Just as everyone has an opinion, a favorite meal and a nose — albeit a fake one at times — so too does everyone have a birthday. Even celebrities. Here at Birthday Bash, it’s my mission to salute the fine actors, filmmakers and other Hollywood heroes that are celebrating their special day this week. After all, it’s cheaper than mailing a cake.

This week, Birthday Bashers will catch the train leaving Platform 9 3/4 heading for the Cave of Wonders, battling blood-sucking vampires along the way. Or maybe we're just celebrating some actors who've done that dirty work for us. Either way, let's get to the party!

Robin Williams (July 21): Few actors in Hollywood can juggle the role of gut-busting comedian and tear-jerking dramatist like Robin Williams, as seen by his performances in "Good Morning, Vietnam" and "Mrs. Doubtfire," among others. Seriously, go back and check out the cross-dressing comedy -- »

Five Favorite Films with Terrence Howard

23 April 2009 8:31 AM, PDT | Rotten Tomatoes | See recent Rotten Tomatoes news »

The Oscar-nominated actor Terrence Howard has amassed an impressive resume since making his Hollywood breakthrough in the 1995 drama Mr. Holland's Opus (he also starred in that year's Dead Presidents), excelling at giving each and every one of his characters an extraordinary complexity that always seems to simmer right beneath the surface, whether as part of an ensemble (Crash, Lackawanna Blues), as a villain (Awake, Idlewild), a sympathetic figure (Four Brothers, August Rush), or a hero in waiting (Iron Man). In a discussion about Howard's favorite films, Rotten Tomatoes discovered that the actor's affinity for music runs close to his »
