New Foxcatcher Poster puts Channing Tatum Out Front

Read More

The first teaser poster for Foxcatcher is all Channing Tatum and though he’s one of the best reasons to see the film, and probably the movie’s only eye candy, he’s not the only reason to see it. Full poster after the jump.

Read More

by Jazz Tangcay Will 2015’s Best Actress race be The Year of the Redhead? It’s only July and some might consider it a bit too early to be making any predictions about who’s going to win, but we can’t help ourselves. Amy Adams is already generating buzz for her upcoming role in Tim Burton’s Big Eyes. Julianne Moore already has one award under her arm after winning Best Actress in…

Amy Adams Gives up Seat for American Soldier

Read More

Reporting on the events she saw on her flight, Jamele Hill witnessed Amy Adams giving up her first class seat to an American soldier, something the flight crew has never seen before but frankly, they should see more often. I’d go so far as to say that any American soldier flying in the US from combat should automatically be upgraded to first class. “I was on a flight from Detroit…

Coherence, trailer and poster

Read More

Matt Zoller Seitz, Ebert.com: “Coherence is proof that inventive filmmakers can do a lot with a little. Written and directed by James Ward Byrkit, the movie starts out looking and feeling like half the no-budget indies you’ve seen: a bunch of seemingly well-off people attend a dinner party at a nice suburban house somewhere in Northern California on the night that a comet is scheduled to pass near the earth….

The Last of Robin Hood starring Kevin Kline, Susan Sarandon, Dakota Fanning

Read More

Robin Hood — the kind of fantastical story people told each other 80 or 800 years ago before they had the imagination to come up with Kryptonite and alien life forms. Not judging! Just sayin, it’s all the same: Guys in tight leggings with skills of heroic “destiny” saving the general population from ruthless villains who use their “divine” powers for evil. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. If…
