Ben Kingsley, at 69, is enjoying quite a run: he stars as the terrifying Mandarin in "Iron Man 3," has a p...

    Watch: First Trailer For Sci-Fi 'Ender's Game' Starring Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley & Asa Butterfield

    Sci-fi is a hard sell, generally speaking, at the box office, even if it's based off a beloved book like Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game." However, those who have actually read the novel have been wondering just how it will translate onto the big screen? It's not necessarily the most action-driven ...

    The Best & Worst Moments Of 'Iron Man 3'

    If you were in prison, comatose or pinned to the ground by a fallen armoire this weekend, it's possible you didn't see "Iron Man 3." All the rest of us, it seems, ignored our mothers' protestations and spent a couple of hours of this fine sunny summer weekend indoors in the dark, watching Robert Dow...

    Review: 'Iron Man 3' Is A Solid, Sometimes Surprising Start To Marvel's Phase Two Movies

    After just about as successful a start as you could ask for (three new franchises, and one mega-franchise that kicked off with the third biggest movie of all time), the Marvel movie machine is moving into its next phase. And with it comes the risk of dilution; we're getting at least two movies a yea...

    Ben Kingsley's Mandarin Looks Bizarre & Badass On New 'Iron Man 3' Poster

    Let's face it, as entertaining as the "Iron Man" movies have been thus far (okay, the second one not so much), the villains haven't been all that great. The first was a game but not particularly memorable Jeff Bridges as the duplicitous Obadiah Stane, the father of Tony Stark's old partner. Shrug. T...
