    Jesse Eisenberg Would Prefer To Not Be The Face Of The Low Rent Horror Movie 'Camp Hell'

    For every rising actor or big name star, there is always a film in their past they would like to forget about. Something they did because it was work, they needed to pay rent and they at least wanted to keep working. It's called paying your dues, and while Jesse Eisenberg isn't trying to hid...

    30 Minutes Or Less—movie review

    What can I say about a movie that made me want to take a shower and cleanse myself afterward? 30 Minutes or Less is so shallow, self-satisfied, and downright repulsive that I hesitate to discuss it at all. It has none of the qualities of director Ruben Fleischer’s debut feature, Zombie...

    Oren Moverman To Write, Maybe Direct 'Terrorist Search Engine' For Scott Rudin & Jesse Eisenberg

    Israeli-born writer-director Oren Moverman isn't just the owner of one of the best bald heads this side of Greg Mottola,, he's also becoming one of the most in-demand screenwriters around. Having gotten early credits on the likes of "Jesus' Son," "Married Life" and Todd Haynes' "I'm Not There," Moverman broke out with his 2009 directorial debut "The Messenger," which saw him, co-writer Alessandro Camon and star Woody Harrelson all nominated for Oscars. His follow-up "Rampart" is one of our most eagerly anticipated films at Toronto this year, and he's taken a number of high-profile screenwriting jobs of late, including biopics of Kurt Cobain a...

    Review: '30 Minutes Or Less' Is A Fun But Forgettable Conclusion To The Summer Of R-Rated Excess

    Zipping along at a brisk pace -- albeit one that feels like it's rushing to be over -- featuring dueling bromance buddy tales from both protagonists and villains, and mostly amusing in its vulgar humor and gags, the "action"-comedy "30 Minutes Or Less," is entertaining, but ultimately only a mild ef...

    Geek Dream-Team: Jesse Eisenberg To Star In Richard Ayoade's 'Submarine' Follow-Up 'The Double'

    Considering we'd worried about his potential range earlier in his career, and the fact that he doesn't always seem that enamored of the idea of being a movie star in interviews, we continue to be impressed by the choices that Jesse Eisenberg has been making. Playing Mark Zuckerberg in "The Social Network" was always going to be a tricky role to escape from the shadow of, but he's already had a big animated hit since with "Rio," he's in theaters next week in the R-rated comedy "30 Minutes or Less," and he's got some impressive and diverse projects lined up, including Woody Allen's "Bop Decameron," the Louis Leterrier heist comedy "Now You See ...

    Melanie Laurent Confirmed For 'Now You See Me'; Jake Gyllenhaal Out, Jesse Eisenberg Stays In

    We definitely have a soft spot for Louis Leterrier, as far as action-led helmers go. Undeniably talented, he's more than proved his action chops on the first two "Transporter" films, and pulled off a solid superhero flick on "The Incredible Hulk." Unfortunately, his last film, "Clash of the Titans,"...

    Jesse Eisenberg Has Doubts About 'Zombieland 2'

    Back in the fall of 2009, a little film called "Zombieland" starring an unlikely and at the time, certainly unbankable trio of leads in Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg and Emma Stone, hit theaters with low expectations and wound up taking in over $100 million at the box office. It was a massive that most were not expecting and it wasn't long for sequel talk to follow. Throughout much of last year various rumors surfaced, culminating in talk last fall of new celebrity cameos which co-writer Rhett Reese quickly debunked. And ever since, word has gone quiet. Earlier this year, Harrelson was cagey about the prospect of a sequel saying, “I’m sure...

    Jesse Eisenberg & Jake Gyllenhaal First Names Conjured Up For Louis Leterrier's 'Now You See Me'

    Offers Out To Philip Seymour Hoffman, Olivia Wilde & Melanie LaurentJust like pulling a rabbit out of a hat, or sawing a woman in half, Louis Leterrier's next film is now moving with two names conjured up to join the cast (all this magic talk will make sense in a moment).

    Jesse Eisenberg & Naomi Watts Circle Noah Baumbach's 'While We're Young'

    It's been a bit of a casting revolving door for Noah Baumbach's next effort "While We're Young." Last year, Ben Stiller, Gerta Gerwig and James Franco were all set to team on the film. Then, shortly after that was announced, Gerwig left and Cate Blanchett joined, only for both the actress and Franco...
