    Elizabeth Banks Will Direct 'Pitch Perfect 2;' 'A Most Violent Year' Casting & More News

    One of the big sleeper hits of 2010, the musical comedy “Pitch Perfect,” grossed $115 million worldwide off a small $17 million dollar budget, so the Hollywood law of averages dictates a sequel must be made (even though the movie was a perfectly enjoyable, self-contained story that really needed no ...

    As we wait for official word as to whether or not "The Newsroom" will be back for a third season (star Jeff Daniels' insistence doesn't count), Emily Mortimer, who plays Will McAvoy's producer and much-abused love interest MacKenzie McHale, has found herself another perch at HBO.

    Recap: Aaron Sorkin Finally Gets It Right With The Season 2 Finale Of 'The Newsroom'

    Before diving in, a bit of a disclaimer and/or explanation is in order. Thanks to TIFF taking me away from the television for a couple of weeks, followed by some bungling couriers and concluding in massive fatigue upon returning from Toronto, "The Newsroom" slipped off the immediate radar. And a sho...

    Brian De Palma To Direct Meta-Adaptation Of 'Therese Raquin' Starring Emily Mortimer

    No matter what you thought about Brian De Palma's "Passion," it can't be denied that it found the filmmaker firmly back in his wheelhouse of erotically charged melodrama.

    Recap: 'The Newsroom' Season 2 Episode 1, 'The First Thing We Do, Let's Kill All The Lawyers'

    After a rocky first season, both compelling and cringe-worthy in equal doses, and sometimes all at the same time, Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom" is back for a second season and it has undergone some significant retooling. The writers' room was given a shakeup, and even as production got underway, Sor...

    'The Newsroom' Season 2 Promises Less and Delivers It

    The season-spanning story is designed to seem ambitious, but this Newsroom feels like a scaled-down show; there's less egregious overreach, but nothing's come in to replace it.
