    Review: 'Wild Bill' Is An Immensely Likable Directorial Debut From Dexter Fletcher

    For whatever reason, directorial debuts by British character actors tend to lean towards the gritty kitchen-sink drama; Tim Roth, Gary Oldman and, more recently, Paddy Considine have all broken their filmmaking cherry with uncompromisingly tough, bleak subject matter. Considering that it involves ab...

    Watch: Andy Serkis & Thomas Brodie Sangster Battle Cancer Through Art in 'Death Of A Superhero'

    A devil's bargain to ponder: more mo-cap-free, starring roles for Andy Serkis, but all of them in maudlin teen cancer dramas that make “50/50” seem like the underrated romp it isn't? Okay, okay, the recently released trailer for Ian Fitzgibbon-directed “Death of a Superhero...

    Review: 'The Adventures of Tintin' Is All Hollow Spectacle & No Joy

    Tintin is a terrible journalist. It has to be said -- his walls are covered with framed news stories about his exploits rather than work published under his byline, he takes not one note (pity his poor fact-checker) and not even by the laxest of Fox News standards could he be considered objective, g...

    One of the big questions when entering this summer's surprisingly entertaining "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" was whether or not the apes, led by fuzzy rebel commander Caesar (played by Andy Serkis), would end up speaking in the movie.
