    Review: 'Now You See Me' Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher & Mark Ruffalo

    David Copperfield once famously quipped to Johnny Carson, that the difference between a trick and an illusion is "about $40,000."

    Dave Franco & Christopher Mintz-Plasse Join Seth Rogen & Zac Efron In 'Townies'

    While his last film "The Guilt Trip" proved to be something of a box-office disappointment, Seth Rogen remains as busy as ever: his directorial debut "The End Of The World" hits later in the summer, he's guest-starring on the new season of "Arrested Development," and only yesterday, lined up another...

    Last week, we took a look at the relative dearth of leading men in Hollywood: why Tom Cruise, Will Smith et al remain at the top of the tree, and why so few serious competitors have emerged since.
