    Hugh Jackman To Star In Adaptation Of 'Tell No One' Author Harlan Coben's 'Six Years'

    Though an accomplished, best selling author with a shelf full of titles to his name, only one book by Harlan Coben has made it to the big screen -- Guillaume Canet's adaptation of "Tell No One." Not a bad start at all (though an American remake by Ben Affleck is brewing), and now another one of his ...

    Review: 'Movie 43' Strains For Laughs With Uninspired Collection Of Comedy Shorts

    Immersed in Movies: 'Les Mis' Creators Schönberg and Boublil Talk Oscar-Nominated Song 'Suddenly'

    There's nothing that demonstrates the difference between the "Les Misérables" stage show and movie more than the new Oscar-nominated song, "Suddenly." The tender lullaby sung by Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) to little Cosette (Isabelle Allen) in a carriage never could've been carried off on stage...

    Film Aside, Can You Listen to the 'Les Miserables' Soundtrack On Its Own?

    "Les Misérables" may have taken home the Golden Globe for Best Comedy/Musical, but it's nowhere near to a universally acclaimed film. 2012 has been a year in which none of the top awards contenders have earned that distinction -- "Lincoln" gets as many raves as "mehs," and ebates on the ethics of "Z...

    Watch The Oscar Nominations: The Good, The Bad, The What Were They Thinking?

    What a relief! It looks like the Oscar show might actually be fun, thanks to Seth MacFarlane. When he and Emma Stone announced the nominees, MacFarlane commented with barbed lines that were as edgy as anything Ricky Gervais did during his controversial Golden Globes gigs. After announcing the B...

    Immersed in Movies: Paco Delgado Talks 'Les Miserables' Costumes

    For Paco Delgado, "Les Misérables" moves like a breathless action movie the way it combines gritty drama with musical fantasy. That was director Tom Hooper's cinematic vision for the operatic sing-through...

    'Les Miserables' Director Hooper Digs Into His Musical Audacity, It's Like 'Avatar' or Shakespeare

    Tom Hooper sounds sniffly. He calls it "flying related." He's calling me from Japan, where he's about to attend yet another premiere of "Les Miserables." "I have not managed to show the movie to our own Royal family," he says. "Now I'm showing it to the Crown Prince of Japan."

Complete with an all-star cast of Hugh Jackma...
