    John Travolta Rumored To Star In 'The Toxic Avenger' Reboot But Not As The Hero

    In the spring of 2010, a not-so-brilliant, hare-brained idea was announced: a remake of Troma Entertainment's campy, super low-budget, sex-filled 1984 B-movie (or is that Z-movie?) "The Toxic Avenger." With genius Akiva Goldsman ("I Am Legend," "Mr. & Mrs. Smith...

    Politics can be sleazy, but might just be out-sleazed by 'Political Animals,' the melodrama a clef that unimaginatively, nastily leeches off the Clintons. Even the great Sigourney Weaver, in the don’t-call-her-Hillary role, can’t save this tacky, leaden miniseries, whose clu...

    Watch: 6 Clips From 'Savages' Offer Extended Look At Plot & Amplified Performances

    After a string of biopics, a documentary, and a decent “Wall Street” sequel, it's clear Oliver Stone is ready to return to his special, sun-soaked universe -- one where the violent atmosphere infuses every frame and its characters' swaggering personalities aren't too far behi...
