    TIFF First Look: Jesse Eisenberg In Kelly Reichardt's 'Night Moves' & Ti West's 'The Sacrament'

    Will Jesse Eisenberg be the king of this year's Toronto International Film Festival?

    New Images From Richard Ayoade's TIFF Bound 'The Double' Starring Jesse Eisenberg & Mia Wasikowska

    While many threw rather glib Wes Anderson comparisons at Richard Ayoade's sweet directorial debut "Submarine," it looks like for this next film, he's making it clear that he's got his own vision. "The Double," which we've been waiting for every since the atmospheric first images landed last fall, is...

    'Now You See Me' Star Jesse Eisenberg vs. Romina Puga: "You are the Carrot Top of interviewers" (VIDEO)

    Jesse Eisenberg joins the long list of movie stars who snap under the tedium of back-to-back junket interviews. For whatever reason (if it worked for Mila Kunis?), he decides to give Romina Puga a hard time; the interview is edited, so we don't know what other stuff she left out. But fair to say thi...

    'Now You See Me': More Abracadabra, Less Explanation, Please

    Learning the inner workings of a magic trick is almost always a bit of a disappointment. The magician's flourish is what makes the show fun--see the nuts and bolts of his or her work, and the sense of wonder shatters.

    Now You See Me

    This exhausting film harps on the magician’s ultimate trick, misdirection. That word describes the very nature of "Now You See Me," which purports to tell a clever story when all it’s doing is whirling in an endless spiral.

    Review: 'Now You See Me' Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher & Mark Ruffalo

    David Copperfield once famously quipped to Johnny Carson, that the difference between a trick and an illusion is "about $40,000." And certainly, in recent years magic has gone from something defined by either birthday party tricksters or arena selling professionals, into a piece of slick entertainme...

    The teaser trailer for Blue Sky Studio's "Rio 2" has just hit the internet and the brief clip doesn't explain much, instead encouraging you to shake your tail feathers while you'll undoubtedly wonder, at least for the first thirty seconds or so, if you're watching a commercial for a feature-length v...

    Jesse Eisenberg, Isabelle Huppert & Gabriel Byrne To Star In Joachim Trier's 'Louder Than Bombs'

    One filmmaker who's a favorite around these parts is Norwegian Joachim Trier. The writer/director's first two features "Reprise" and "Oslo, August 31st" are impressive and expressive works, and so when it was announced well over a year ago that his next effort would be his English-language debut, we...

    Watch: Isla Fisher Swims With Piranhas In Opening 4-Minutes Of 'Now You See Me' Plus Motion Poster & New Pics

    You don't see movies about magic or featuring magicians too often at the movies, and while this spring's "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" was either very magical or funny, this summer Louis Leterrier's "Now You See Me" is hoping to cast a spell. It's a summer movie without superheros or toys to bac...
