    Last week at the Marrakech Film Festival, we got to sit down in a small press group with jury member Gemma Arterton.

    The Trailer Test: Why the New 'Die Hard' Trailer Is Probably Better Than the Movie and 'Hansel and Gretel' Is Better Than Both

    In the process of teasing the bigger picture, a trailer should also tell a story, whether or not that story correlates with the movie in question.

    Watch: Grisly Red-Band Trailer (& Poster) For 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' With Jeremy Renner & Gemma Arterton

    If the performance this summer of "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" was anything to go by, the future of the "[Insert Name Of Historical Or Literary Figure]: [Insert Name Of Supernatural Creature] Hunter" sub-genre isn't looking too great; even on a relatively modest budget, Timur Bekmambetov's horr...

    TIFF Review: 'Song For Marion' Hits A Predictable, But Sour Note

    There is a certain strain of mid-budgeted British comedy -- films like "Calendar Girls," "Made In Dagenham," "Greenfingers," "The Full Monty" etc. -- that generally tends to find an audience on both sides of the ocean, make a modest profit, and then land on specialty cable where it lives on in rerun...

    It's been a while since Neil Jordan dipped back into the horror well. In the past decade he's tackled a glossy studio revenge movie ("The Brave One"), a mermaid tale ("Ondine"), a high-profile remake ("The Good Thief") and whatever the hell "Breakfast on Pluto" was.

    Well, depending on your disposition (and the amount of chemicals you've ingested today), you'll either find the trailer for "Song for Marion" to be hopelessly charming or an absolute disaster that makes you want to cover yourself in bread crumbs and be slowly devoured by a flock of hungry seagulls. ...
