    Oscar Watch: Which Indie Outsiders Have a Shot at Best Actress?

    Last night I watched Ellen Barkin act her heart out in Sam Levinson's Sundance screenplay-winner "Another Happy Day" (Phase 4, November 18), which is saddled with an unfortunate generic title. At 57, Barkin has been around the block a few times, and while the movie opens with her two y...

    First Review Of Jason Reitman's 'Young Adult': Edgy, Subversive, Think "Juno's Wicked Step-Sister"

    While it circumvented the traditional fall film festival route, as you've probably heard by now, Jason Reitman and Paramount have been hosting "pop-up screenings" of the "Up In The Air" director's latest film, "Young Adult." The first screening was held in Toronto, Canada, and the second screening t...

    Scott Derrickson To Direct Charlize Theron In Remake Of Dutch Horror Film 'Zwart Water'

    For a brief moment, it seemed as if Charlize Theron was going to be struck hard by the Oscar curse. Following "Monster," she hit a bit of rough patch. Yes, she was nominated for "North Country" but the film didn't exactly make waves with audiences. "Æon Flux" was nothing short of a disaster, and "In The Valley Of Elah" and "Battle In Seattle" weren't quite received as well as the filmmakers might have hoped. However, the actress is set to make a big leap back into public view. Later this year she'll make another run at Oscar with a starring role in Jason Reitman's "Young Adult" and 2012 finds her back in tentpole territory with two mega proje...

    Crime Thriller 'Cities Of Refuge' Finds A Citizen In Charlize Theron

    It looks like Charlize Theron is on the comeback trail. After a string of films that either underperformed or just weren't worthy of her talents -- "Battle In Seattle," "In the Valley of Elah," "The Burning Plain," "Hancock," "The Road" -- the actress has lined up a formidable slate of projects. Next year she'll be starring in two major tentpoles, Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" and "Snow White and the Huntsman," and before the end of the year we may be hearing Oscar talk for her turn in Jason Reitman's "Young Adult." So when we hear the words "crime thriller" associated with Theron, we can't help but be a bit excited given the momentum she has r...
