    Walloping Action In Soderbergh's Haywire, Plus Fassbender And McGregor

    When a man is contracted to kill kickass undercover agent Mallory Kane, he says with mild curiosity, “I’ve never done a woman before,” and gets the perfect deadpan reply: “You shouldn’t think of her as being a woman. That would be mistake.” That doesn’t...

    Ewan McGregor In Perfect Sense

    Perfect Sense is one of those clever, minor, almost-good films saved by Ewan McGregor.

    Trailer for 'Perfect Sense' Debuts

    Ewan McGregor has been in an upswing of late. Shaking off the creative stagnation of the 'Star Wars' prequels, he's been back doing solid work recently in movies like "The Ghost Writer" and this year's "Beginners" (we should also mention that he also totally ...

    Marrakech Film Festival '11: Terry Gilliam Says Ewan McGregor No Longer Involved In 'Don Quixote'

    At film festivals, it’s hardly uncommon for a Q&A to get hijacked when an overzealous audience member decides to compliment the filmmakers and then ask an eight-minute question that almost always boils down to “how did you do _____?” But on Sunday night at AFI Fest, none o...
