    Jamie Bell, Connie Nielsen & More Will Romp In Lars Von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac'; Shooting Starts This Week

    While Lars Von Trier is no stranger to attracting Hollywood types to his movies, particularly with his films "Dogville" and "Manderlay," you might think his upcoming, sex-driven "The Nymphomaniac" might be the kind of project agents keep away from their talent. Guess ag...

    Jamie Bell & Kate Mara Team Up For Rom-Com 'Fighting Jacob'

    Earlier today, The Playlist team ran down their favorite rom-coms and if there was any unifying thread to the variety of movies we had listed, it was that chemistry and appeal between the two leads is essential. If you don't have stars that can be charming, attractive, funny and sympathetic...

    Man On A Ledge—movie review

    Try this on for size: an ex-cop who wants to prove he was innocent of a crime that sent him “up the river” for 25 years decides that the best way to do so is to step out onto the ledge of a midtown Manhattan hotel—and create a distraction for an even wilder scheme he’s trying...

    IN THE WORKS: Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Chris Evans in Talks to Star in 'Snow Piercer"

    White-blonde actress and probable Oscar nominee Tilda Swinton might reprise her Ice Queen role in an upcoming feature--just not as Narnia native Jadis the White Witch. Swinton ("We Need to Talk About Kevin") and Jamie Bell ("The Adventures of Tintin") are in talks to join Chris Evans ("Captain Ameri...

    Review: 'The Adventures of Tintin' Is All Hollow Spectacle & No Joy

    Tintin is a terrible journalist. It has to be said -- his walls are covered with framed news stories about his exploits rather than work published under his byline, he takes not one note (pity his poor fact-checker) and not even by the laxest of Fox News standards could he be considered objective, g...

    Steven Spielberg, Jamie Bell & Nick Frost Talk About Bringing 'The Adventures Of Tintin' From Page To Screen

    When a film takes nearly thirty years to come to fruition, a lot of information gets shared along the way -- so even before "The Adventures of Tintin" comes out this week, most of us know not only the story, but also what's next. Still, director Steven Spielberg, his visual effects sup...

    Review: Steven Spielberg's 'The Adventures Of Tintin' Is A Gloriously Enjoyable Mo-Cap Marvel

    Across his 40 year career as Hollywood's most beloved filmmaker, Steven Spielberg has tried his hand at many different things -- the blockbuster thrill ride, the family film, the comedy, the war film, hardcore science-fiction, serious dramas and whatever it was that "The Terminal" was, a diverse range of pictures united by that certain Spielberg je-ne-sais-quoi. But there's something he's never tackled directly himself; the animated film. Sure, he's produced TV cartoons like "Animaniacs," and even the occasional big-screen one, like "An American Tail" and "We're Back," but for the most part, the Bearded One has always preferred live action to...

    Steven Spielberg Says 'The Adventures Of Tintin' Is "85% Animation, 15% Live Action"

    And More We Learned From Empire Magazine's Feature On The Steven Spielberg Animated AdventureIt's been three and a half years since Steven Spielberg's last movie (and nearly six since his last good one), but the wait is nearly over as "The Adventures of Tintin" (or to give it its full international title, "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn") hits Europe in a few short weeks, and it started screening for press in the last few days, with reviews emerging from London in the last 24 hours. The film, a long-in-the-works performance-capture version of Hergé's boy-detective hero, marks the great director's first entrance into the w...
