    Watch: Excellent, Action-Packed New U.K. Trailer For Steven Spielberg's 'The Adventures of Tintin'

    Even as a big fan of Steven Spielberg, this writer is strangely cool on "War Horse," the director's big awards hopeful this year. The full trailer, of course, debuted yesterday, and it looks handsome, and probably moving, and well-acted, but...there's something that's just not quite connecting there...

    James McAvoy, Jamie Bell & Alan Cumming Set For Irvine Welsh's 'Filth'; Filming Starts January 2012

    Earlier this year, in an interview with The Daily Record, James McAvoy hinted at a tantalizing potential project on the horizon saying, "I'm looking at a part soon, like the second half of this year, that is quite extreme I mean, quite full on mental." While the actor is currently shooting the crime drama "Welcome to the Punch," the premise of that film -- about a London detective whose old nemesis, an armed robber, reappears after five years away -- doesn't sound "quite extreme" or "full on mental." However, one project that has been floating with his name attached is an adaptation of Irvine Welsh's "Filth" and it now seems the long-gestati...

    Watch: Jamie Bell IS Tilda Swinton In First Trailer For 'The Adventures Of Tintin'

    One of the biggest question marks of the year has been Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin." The director's coming off the worst film of his career, "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," and tackling a comic book that few in the U.S. have heard of, in the performance capture...

    Nifty Teaser Posters Debut For Steven Spielberg & Peter Jackson's 'The Adventures Of Tintin'

    First Trailer To Arrive Tomorrow MorningFor one of the most eagerly anticipated films of the year, at least everywhere except the U.S, word's been strangely quiet on "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn." Uniting blockbuster giants Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson for the first time (the former's directing, the latter producing), on an adaptation of the massively successful graphic novel series about a Belgian boy detective, his dog Snowy, his best friend, a drunken sea captain, and the adventures they go on, we had a glimpse of a handful of images before Christmas, but little since then. We guess because the film's being re...

    Review: 'Jane Eyre' A Hauntingly Effective Gothic Drama

    When tasked with reimagining Charlotte Brontë's immortal "Jane Eyre," which seems to be adapted somewhere, by someone, every couple of years, some key decisions must be made. The impulse that seems to have seized director Cary Fukunaga was to emphasize the gothic horror elements of the story, while ...

    Cary Fukunaga Talks His Horror/Romance Take On 'Jane Eyre' With Michael Fassbender & Mia Wasikoska

    Indie Filmmaker Also Discusses His Gestating Musical With Owen Pallett, His African Civil War Drama 'Beasts Of No Nation,' & His Good Filmmaking Fortune So FarExclusive: Delighting fans of period romance everywhere -- and kids who can't be bothered with even the Cliffs Notes of the classic Charlotte Brontë novel --"Jane Eyre" is making another appearance on screen. But rather than coming from a predictably English pedigree, the 2011 Focus Features version arrives from the seemingly unlikely source of Cary Fukunaga, a young American director with a single feature to his name, 2009's gritty immigration thriller "Sin Nombre." Fukunaga went young...

    Review: 'The Eagle' Marred By Humorless Melodrama & A Silly Bromance

    Helluva Chase Though...While mildly engaging initially, but soon marred by cliches, all-to-familiar and humorless swords and sandals tropes, a barrage of mixed accents (including puzzling Brooklyn ones), and the unintentional bromance comedy of two warring leads turned bffs by the end of the picture...

    Watch: Cary Fukunaga Plays Up The Gothic Horror In First Trailer For 'Jane Eyre'

    As big fans of Cary Fukunaga's debut "Sin Nombre," we've been anticipating his follow-up, a new adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's classic novel "Jane Eyre" for quite some time. But it's not been a home-run by any means: the novel's been frequently filmed as it is, most recently by Zeffirelli in 199...
