    Crazy, Stupid, Love.

    When a movie opens with a woman telling her husband that she wants a divorce after twenty-five years of marriage and it isn’t played for laughs, you know you’re not in for a “typical” Hollywood comedy. Given the current state of comedy, that’s not necessarily a ...

    Kevin Bacon Wants To Get 'R.I.P.D.'

    Kevin Bacon must be getting a thrill these days out of playing the baddie. We're only halfway through the year he's been on screen in three straight films where he's the villain: he was the drug dealing Jacques in "Super"; the twisted Sebastian Shaw in "X-Men: First Class" and the wife-stealing co-w...

    Review: Chemistry Really Cooks In The Uneven, But Super Charming 'Crazy Stupid Love'

    Precariously mixing elements of broad comedy, bittersweet heartache, charming romance and soulful, surprisingly mature dramatic moments, "Crazy, Stupid, Love" is an endearing and winning summer comedic drama. It succeeds in spite of some messy plotting, dicey adulteration of tones, and too convenien...

    Geez, with all the testosterone flying around this film, you might get pregnant just from reading the cast list of Billy Bob Thornton's next effort behind the camera, "Jayne Mansfield's Car."

    'X-Men: First Class': The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

    By this point, it's more than likely that you've checked out "X-Men: First Class" (although its underwhelming box office suggests that there were fewer of you than we thought). And, if the film's strong exit scores are anything to go by, you, like most of The Playlist team, found it as entertaining ...

    SXSW Review: James Gunn's 'Super' With Rainn Wilson & Ellen Page Is Twisted, But Uneven

    “Shut up, Crime!” bellows Rainn Wilson in “Super.” Such a random demand is highlighted by the outsized appearance of the speaker, clad in thick red fabrics, stocky and pear-shaped within a makeshift superhero costume. It serves as a power fantasy for him, a power fantasy for us. As seen through the...

    New Pic From 'X-Men: First Class' Shows Off The Secret Lair Of Emma Frost & Sebastian Shaw

    Despite the reportedly rushed production -- and what the ramblings of way-too-invested nerds would have you have believe -- "X-Men: First Class" is still looking like the uh, classiest, of the crush of comic book movies set to hit in the next few months. We're not sure what it is -- the casting, the...

    Matthew Vaughn Hated The Leaked Image Too & More From The Cast Of 'X-Men: First Class'

    Michael Fassbender & Kevin Bacon Talk Shop; Also, Jennifer Lawrence Is All Kinds Of AwesomeTalk about dominating the news cycle: after months of relative inactivity, the 20th Century Fox promotional machine went into full gear yesterday -- perhaps a bit before was originally intended -- in support of the still-filming "X-Men: First Class," with set visits, official stills and a poster all hitting the net, hot on the heels of the underwhelming first look at the cast in full costume/make-up. Now, some of the members of the cast have been talking about the film as well, with Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Kevin Bacon (villain Sebastian Shaw) and ...

    Now That's Muuuuch Better: More Realistic 'X-Men: First Class' Photos Appear Online

    Director Matthew Vaughn Says He's Never Felt This Much "Pressure" On Making A MovieOK, this is muuuuuch better. Recent photos of Matthew Vaughn's "X-Men: First Class" leaked on the Internet with the cast in costume and well, they essentially looked like cast off test images from Brett Ratner's "X-Men: The Last Stand" -- definitely not anyone's favorite of the "X-Men" franchise. Heralded as a back-to-basics prequel set in the '60s, the leaked image -- apparently it wasn't ready for public consumption, but once it's out it's out -- seemed to be antithetical to the idea of a group of mutants first finding one another and eventually becoming part...

    Watch: Kevin Bacon's Biggest Fan Is Kevin Bacon In Funny, Clever Logitech Ad

    Most celebrity ads are pretty baffling or ludicrously self important (please see every perfume ad ever), so it's refreshing to see a spot that a) isn't hidden by airing only in some random European or Asian country, b) is genuinely pretty funny and c) finds the star taking the piss on his own person...
