    Discuss: Why Are There So Few Reliable Leading Men, And Who Might Yet Become One?

    The box office is up in 2012, but of the ten biggest grossers of the year so far, only one, "Safe House" was sold on the back of an established A-list star, namely Denzel Washington.

    Tom Hooper's 'Les Miserables' Will Have A New Original Song Written For The Film Sung By Hugh Jackman

    When a director wins the Oscar for Best Director, what they choose for their next project is very interesting, and can say a lot about what they want to achieve in their career. Of course, for the likes of a Martin Scorsese or the Coen Brothers it's business as usual, but Danny Boyle used his ne...

    OSCARS DEATH RACE: REAL STEEL

    "Real Steel" is one of those trailers that makes you turn to your movie-going companion and say, "You know, I really like [above-the-title star who's talented, attractive, and doesn't take himself too seriously but apparently just hit some kind of alimony balloon payment]. He's a nice man. I want hi...

    James Mangold Calls 'The Wolverine' A Dark Character Piece Like Eastwood's 'The Outlaw Josey Wales'

    'Walk the Line' Director Also Likens It To 'Chinatown,' Calls It A Foreign-Language Super-Hero Drama, Film-Noir & Detective Story; Reveals He Spoke With AronofskyEvidenced by his success with “Cop Land,” “Walk the Line,” “3:10 To Yuma” and “Knight and Day,” James Mangold has a knack for turning populist entertainment into personal expression. But when 20th Century Fox announced that Mangold would be taking on “The Wolverine,” a sequel to “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” his fans seemed concerned he might be overwhelmed by the enormity of a franchise sequel, and the constant scrutiny that seems to come with one.
