Thanks to Jon Pace for the tip. The cast of Woody Allen’s latest features Patricia Clarkson, Ed Begley Jr., Evan Rachel Wood, Henry Cavill, Kristen Johnston, and Michael Mckean, but the poster after the cut spotlights the primary attraction of ...

Last year, Atom Egoyan’s Adoration won the Ecumenical Prize at Cannes (recognizing “films that have a spiritual dimension and plumb the depths of the human condition.”) Babel and Cache are previous celebrated winners of the Ecumenical Prize, but Adoration has ...

Some movies get leaked in one big chunk, and some leak in a steady stream of increasingly meaty trickles. This 4-minute trailer might be more than some people need to see, but it hits all the right notes for me. ...

Reuters says, “Universal Pictures is developing the feature, with Justin Haythe, writer of Revolutionary Road, penning the script. Danish filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn, writer-director of the Pusher trilogy of gritty thrillers, is in negotiations to direct the project, titled Jekyll.” ...

Austrian website, DVD-Forum.at has four gorgeous new photos from Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, featuring Heath Ledger in his final starring role. Though the film gets its official premiere in Cannes in a couple of weeks, Entertainment Weekly ...

(click to enlarge) The Unusual Suspects, laced up in Kevlar, latex and leather. Hero and Heroine chic.

Looking more like Sir Cassidy and the Duke of Sundance than the more urbane Holmes and staid Watson we’ve always seen before, these new shots from USA Today give us a sexier detective and brawlier sidekick. Did Ritchie consider that ...

Oscar it’s not. But if its pedigreed enough for Cannes it’s pedigreed enough for AD. Another 30-second spot after the cut.

Some talk in the comments overnight about the big weekend numbers for Wolverine, and how the box-office seemed bulletproof to the online leak of a high-quality print (minus some special effects.) $87 mil is a lot of wolvergreen, by any ...
