    Review: 'Hercules' Starring Dwayne Johnson, Ian McShane And John Hurt

    There are cheap costumes, cartoonish special effects and endless nonsense monologues in Brett Ratner's “Hercules." Ergo, there's also Ian McShane. HBO's "Deadwood" blew up the journeyman actor's career, making him a must-have accessory in the eyes of all casting agents. But since the end of that sho...

    Guillermo Del Toro To Direct "Strange" Black & White Film Before 'Pacific Rim 2'

    There was a moment there when Guillermo del Toro couldn't seem to get anything made. A few years back at MGM, he was trying to get "The Hobbit" moving, eventually bailing on the project, leaving it for Peter Jackson to take over and turn into a trilogy. And then there was "At The Mountains Of Madnes...

    Review: Bong Joon-Ho's 'Snowpiercer' Starring Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, John Hurt & More

    Few films without a firm release date (in most of the world, at least) have inspired as much chatter of late than Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer." The English-language debut of the South Korean mastermind behind "Memories of Murder," "The Host" and "Mother," it features an all-star cast and a hefty bud...

    Robert Duvall Out, John Hurt Possibly In For Terry Gilliam's 'Man Who Killed Don Quixote'

    "Terry Gilliam has said that he wants me to come to Spain to play Don Quixote in his movie. I don't know if it will ever come to be. I don't think that's going to happen," the long attached Robert Duvall told ComingSoon this spring about his role in the filmmaker's forever developing "The Man Who Ki...

    To Die For: Swinton and Hiddleston in Jarmusch's 'Only Lovers Left Alive'

    Jim Jarmusch's droll attitude has only been enhanced in this wry yet emotional story of Adam and Eve, two perfectly cast vampires in everlasting love. Only Lovers Left Alive is a brilliant, magical combination: at once pure Jarmusch and entirely new.

    Review: Jim Jarmusch's Cultured & Cool 'Only Lovers Left Alive' Starring Tom Hiddleston & Tilda Swinton

    From the very first opening titles, written in a Germanic font that immediately conjures everything from “Triumph of the Will” to images of big-busted ladies screaming in campy close-up in 1970s cheapie horrors (it may be the only time in Cannes that a film got a big laugh for a typeface) it’s perfe...

    Watch: New Trailer For Jim Jarmusch's 'Only Lovers Left Alive' Is Out For Blood

    "I start every movie thinking how heavy and purposeful it is. But as we film they just get funnier," director Jim Jarmusch told Time Out London. "In the editing room I ended up saying to myself, hey, it’s really just a comedy, Jim. I don’t seem to be able to remove that inclination to humour if I tr...
