    Review: 'Pirates! Band Of Misfits' Is A Treasure Trove Of Visual Wonder

    In John Ortved's unauthorized oral history of "The Simpsons," he recounts how an edict was posted in the writers' room of the influential animated series. This had come down from on high, and was probably hard to follow for some of the zanier writers (Conan O'Brien, we're looking in your direction)....

    Hugh Grant Really Enjoyed Playing A Futuristic Korean Slave Owner In 'Cloud Atlas'

    One of the biggest cinematic question marks of the year is The Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer's "Cloud Atlas." The project, which boasts a starry lineup with each actor playing multiple characters, and a sprawling storyline set across a backdrop that spans hundreds of years, is currently in...

    Hugh Grant Says He Does "A Lot Of Killing And Raping" In 'Cloud Atlas'

    There is no doubt that the upcoming big screen adaptation of David Mitchell's "Cloud Atlas" is ambitious. Directed by The Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer, the sprawling time-spanning tale finds the directors each helming their own segements of the film, leading different units and working wi...

    'Bridget Jones' Baby' In Trouble? Working Title Says Script Still Being Worked On, But Hugh Grant Will Star

    You're probably asking yourself, "Who asked for a third "Bridget Jones" movie? I don't know anyone who saw the second!" Well, you're probably a filthy, dirty American. "Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason" overcame it's clunky title to gross $222 million outside of America, a whopping 85% of its globa...

    Watch: Another Chucklesome Trailer For Aardman Animations's 'The Pirates! Band Of Misfits'

    In the era of Disney's multi-billion dollar "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, it's easy to forget that, for most of the 20th century, the idea of a film revolving around swashbucklers and sea dogs was pretty much box office poison.

    Paul Feig Has Better Things To Do Than Direct 'Bridget Jones 3'

    When news arrived this summer that Paul Feig, riding very high off the smash success of "Bridesmaids" was looking to take on "Bridget Jones 3," it didn't quite make sense to us. Given that the helmer had a world of opportunity open up for him, it seemed strange he would take on the third instalment ...

    Hugh Grant Joins All-Star Cast Of Tom Tykwer & The Wachowskis' 'Cloud Atlas'

    I'm Just A Boy/Girl/Robot, Standing In Front Of A Girl/Boy/Post-Apocalyptic Tribesman, Asking Them To Love Him/Her/ItIt might be difficult to throw a rock in a multiplex in the next few months without hitting a movie starring Matt Damon, Jude Law or Rachel Weisz (let alone Jessica Chastain, who has enough movies to play on every screen), but not every actor has the same work ethic. Some like to take their time over their films, picking only the roles that really interest them; Daniel Day-Lewis, for instance. Some stick fairly rigorously to a one-movie-a-year-policy. And some would rather do pretty much anything than make movies; in particular...
