    'Ender's Game' Teaser Poster Strikes Wrong Note

    I've been excited about new sci-fi epic "Ender's Game" (November 1) not because I'm a fan of the original Nebula and Hugo-winning 1985 novel by Orson Scott Card, but because Roberto Orci, who wrote the two recent "Star Trek" movies with partner Alex Kurtzman, is producing.

    Watch: New Trailer For 'The Call' In Which Halle Berry Answers 911

    Remember "Rescue 911"? In the era before the glut of reality shows, it was a precursor of sorts, a program that offered up re-enactments of real life situations and emergencies, all narrated and given gravitas by the show's host, William Shatner. And if you ever wondered what a big scr...

    Watch: Halle Berry Is A 911 Operator In Trailer For 'The Machinist' Director Brad Anderson's 'The Call'

    Okay, can we say that whatever good will Brad Anderson had from the (somewhat overrated) "The Machinist" has now officially evaporated? Since then, he's delivered "Transsiberian" and "Vanishing On 7th Street," but mostly worked in TV.  And now he has teamed up ...

    You know, with Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep already starring in this thing, the filmmakers could populate the rest of "August: Osage County" with circus clowns, and not only would the two leads still deliver strong performances, and inevitable Oscar nominations would follow. It looks lik...

    'Little Miss Sunshine' Star Abigail Breslin To Lead Vincenzo Natali's 'Haunter'

    An oddity at the start of summer of 2010, the overlooked “Splice,” from “Cube” director Vincenzo Natali was an equal parts Paul Verhoeven and David Cronenberg-style body horror film, that was fortunately able to sidestep some third act contrivances to create a pretty memorable time at the movies.

    Abigail Breslin To Tread Darker Paths Opposite Halle Berry In Brad Anderson's 'The Hive'
