    Bryan Cranston, Anna Kendrick, Alison Brie, Christopher Mintz-Plasse & More 'Get A Job' With 'Rodger Dodger' Director Dylan Kidd

    Ask, and you shall receive. If you build it, they will come. We're sure one of those phrases applies to "Get A Job," the first feature film in a decade from "Rodger Dodger" helmer Dylan Kidd.

    Miles Teller To Star While Anna Kendrick, Bryan Cranston, Jesse Eisenberg, Christopher Mintz-Plasse & More Sought To 'Get A Job'

    Besides the total omnipresence of Jessica Chastain, among the many things the cinematic year of 2011 will be remembered for, is the return of some long absent film directors. After years in the wilderness, cinephiles were finally treated to new feature films from Alexander Payne, Lynne Ramsay and Wh...

    Beautiful Trailer, Bland Poster Debut For 3D Stop-Motion Animated ‘ParaNorman’

    2011 hasn’t exactly been an exceptional year for animated films. Besides this spring’s deliciously strange “Rango” and this summer’s gorgeous, supple “Winnie the Pooh,” there hasn’t been a whole lot to fawn over, animation-wise. (When Pixar unloads a colossal letdown like “Cars 2,” you know the medium is having an “off year.”) Thankfully, 2012 is poised to be an embarrassment of riches, with new movies from proven studios like Blue Sky (“Ice Age: Continental Drift”), Illumination ("The Lorax"), Disney ("Wreck-It Ralph" and Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie") Aardman (“The Pirates! Band of Misfits”) and the beloved Studio Ghibli (“The Secret World o...

    Anna Kendrick & Terrence Howard Are Part Of 'The Company You Keep' With Robert Redford

    Brendan Gleeson, Sam Elliott & 11 Year-Old 'America's Got Talent' Finalist Jackie Evancho Round Out CastThe way it probably works with Robert Redford is that he calls you up, says he wants you for his movie and then you just ask when and where to show up. Quickly following up his musty Abe Lincoln a...

    TIFF '11 Review: Admirable, Low-Key ’50/50’ Splits Difference Between Genuinely Funny And Sad

    Let's get this out of the way early; the cancer dramedy, "50/50," formerly known as "I'm With Cancer," is an admirable effort by all the parties involved. There's maturity and restraint shown throughout in this story, about a healthy young twentysomething man staring his mortality in the face when he is suddenly diagnosed with a rare spinal cancer, and it's a well-intentioned humanistic drama that tries to demonstrate that life is complicated and never quite cut and dry. The measured film takes pains to illustrate there is laughter to be derived in difficult and near-tragic situations and melancholy can also be found in some of the most humor...

    Anna Kendrick Is 'Pitch Perfect' For A Capella Rom-Com

    There is no denying that Anna Kendrick has ascended into the top ranks of young actresses in Hollywood. Already a staple of the "Twilight" franchise, outside the vampires-and-werewolves films she has quickly established herself as a strong supporting player in "Up In The Air," "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World" and the forthcoming cancer dramedy "50/50." But that's not all, next year she already has two projects that couldn't be more different, with David Ayer's police pic "End Of Watch" and the ensemble comedy "What To Expect When You're Expecting" on her calendar. But the actress is ready to step into a leading lady role, and her first shot may ...

    Sweet Baby Jesus: 'What to Expect When You're Expecting' Adds Anna Kendrick & Chris Rock

    James Cameron memorably imparted a distasteful analogy when he was doing the press rounds for “Avatar” and journalists would ask what the filmmaker-cum-megalomaniac’s next project would be. “You don't ask a woman if she wants to have more kids when she's crowning.” snapped the tousled-haired millionaire. As unpleasant as the image of Jim Cameron splayed on a doctor’s table waiting for his gold-plated “baby” to drop from his loins undoubtedly is, it’s an appropriate metaphor for another trend that’s crowning for real: bland self-help non-fiction books nonsensically translated into fiction films. To wit: “He’s Just Not That Into You”, “Marley &...

    Anna Kendrick To Go On Duty With Cop Drama 'End Of Watch'

    Natalie Martinez Also Joins The CastDavid Ayer has found a very comfortable and kind of boring niche: cop dramas. Having penned "Training Day," "Dark Blue" and "S.W.A.T." as well as directed "Harsh Times" and "Street Kings" his oeuvre is somewhat...predictable. So while we're kind of excited his nex...
