    'Submarine' Star Craig Roberts Joins 'Townies' With Seth Rogen & Zac Efron

    Nicholas Stoller’s “Townies,” announced last May, will pit Seth Rogen in an against-type role as a suburban family man against Zac Efron in an against-type role as a rowdy frat boy, two casting choices that we find positively titillating. News that Dave Franco and Christopher Mintz-Plasse had signed...

    Watch: Tim Burton-Directed Video For The Killers' 'Here With Me' With Winona Ryder & Craig Roberts

    It's been a bit of a bummer 2012 for Tim Burton. His big screen reboot of the forgotten '70s show "Dark Shadows" didn't do so well critically or at the box office, and when his feature-length "Frankenweenie" arrived to good reviews, audiences didn't seem to care. But it looks like he's ending the ye...

    Two teen-centered films from New Line and FilmNation have been quietly picking up steam as of late, and while neither production packs tremendous star power under its respective wings, our latest casting report shows they've decided to pull in some fine character actors and fresh talent instead.

    Watch: Trailer & Posters For Brit Crime Flick 'Comes A Bright Day' Starring Imogen Poots & 'Submarine' Star Craig Roberts

    British crime thrillers...every so often a classic rolls around, but you’ve got to wade through a whole heap of sub-par dreck before you find one. The first trailer has hit for Simon Aboud’s (romantically tinged) crime thriller “Comes A Bright Day,” and while nothing on show immediately suggests tha...

    Interview: Richard Ayoade Talks Influences Of 'Submarine' And His Take On 'The Double'

    Arguably best known as the man responsible for the Channel 4 faux-'80s sci-fi parody "Garth Marenghi's Dark Place" and as the shouting nerd Moss in "The IT Crowd," you've likely seen British comedian Richard Ayoade's work behind the camera, yet been completely unaware. The Arctic Monkeys have recruited his talent for a triple-threat of songs ("Fluorescent Adolescent," "Crying Lightning," "Cornerstone"), not to mention they commissioned him to direct their live show "At The Apollo"; indie-pop staples Super Furry Animals put him to work for "Run Away" which starred BFF Matt Berry; and hipster approved group "Vampire Weekend" hired Ayoade to hel...
