    George Clooney Saves the World (Or At Least Art) in 'The Monuments Men'

    The Monuments Men begins with a captivating scene, set in Belgium during World War II. We see close-ups of a work of art -- van Eyck's oversized Ghent Altarpiece—hear banging, then see priests crate up the individual panels of the painting, put them in a truck in the dark of night and send it off f...

    Review: 'The Monuments Men' Starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray & Cate Blanchett

    "The Monuments Men" always felt like a worthwhile (if dicey) proposition: it's the true-life tale of a band of Allied art historians and curators who are dropped into occupied territory during the frenzied final moments of World War II, and their goal was simple and seemingly insurmountable. In the ...

    Watch: New Trailer For George Clooney's 'Monuments Men' Steals Stolen Art

    While it won't be in the Oscar mix both because it won't be ready and for the fact that it's, as George Clooney calls it, "a commercial, non-cynical piece of entertainment," "Monuments Men" still has the kind of star power to attract a red carpet. Indeed, it will be making its international premier...

    Now down to its final episodes, Breaking Bad gets darker, wilder, more go-for-broke. The lighter side? That would be Joking Bad, the latest pop-cult parody from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

    'Downton Abbey,' The Middle Class and Money ('Ya Gotta Spend It on Somethin' ')

    Season 3 of Downton Abbey – as soapy, dramatic and witheringly funny as ever, and at times shatteringly sad – begins in the spring of 1920, and everything now has a whiff of the modern. Daisy the kitchen maid rides a bike through the village, Mary and Matthew are planning their wedd...

    Cast of 'Downton Abbey' Does 'Breaking Bad' on 'Colbert Report'

    Much of the cast of Downton Abbey  -- including Hugh Bonneville and Elizabeth McGovern, but not Magge Smith or Michelle Dockery -- has been in New York promoting the Jan. 6th premiere of the new season, and they have faced a flood of uninteresting questions.

    Daniel Craig, John Goodman & Hugh Bonneville Join George Clooney's 'The Monuments Men,' Bill Murray & Cate Blanchett Confirmed

    After a busy few years (six movies in three years, from "Up in the Air" to "The Descendants"), George Clooney's been taking things a little easier in 2012. That's not to say that he hasn't been busy: the actor wrapped Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity," and is a producer on Ben Affleck's "Argo," a role whic...
