    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

    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...

    Watch: Roman Polanski's Prada-Funded Short Film 'A Therapy' With Ben Kingsley & Helena Bonham Carter

    Last year's "Carnage" might have been something of a disappointment, but it hasn't fazed Roman Polanski: the director's already gearing up for his next film "D," about the famous anti-semitic Dreyfus Affair in France in the 19th century, which will see the director reteam with his "The Ghost Writer"...
