    Kristen Wiig & TV On The Radio Frontman Tunde Adebimpe Will Make A 'Nasty Baby'

    You've got to hand it to director Sebastian Silva... he has certainly defied all expectations. After scoring a little arthouse hit with 2009's festival fave "The Maid," Silva didn't cash in those chips for something mainstream, but instead pivoted around and let his freak flag fly. He teamed up with...

    Ben Stiller's 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' Joins Oscar Race as NYFF Centerpiece Gala (TRAILER)

    As soon as I saw the impressive footage from "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" at CinemaCon, I knew Ben Stiller's ambitious cinematic retelling of the classic James Thurber short story was a potential Oscar Contender.

    Watch: Ben Stiller Imagines a Better World (And an Oscar?) for 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty'

    Ben Stiller may be known mainly as a funnyman to mainstream audiences, but the indie film crowd knows the "Zoolander" star is a perfectly capable thespian in any genre. Stiller's most notable portrayals of layered, dramatic characters are as Michael Grates in "Reality Bites," the grieving widower Ch...

    Do you remember the film "Return" starring Linda Cardellini, directed by Liza Johnson? No? Well, with TIFF around the corner now might be a good time to catch up with indie movie — a solid, modest portrait of one woman breaking down— as Johnson is moving on to bigger things with "Hateship, Friendshi...

    'Girl Most Likely' Kristen Wiig Reflects On Her First Big Break and Her Post 'Bridesmaids' Fame

    It's been two years since "Bridesmaids" came out of seemingly nowhere to become the comedy of 2011, and make star and co-writer Kristen Wiig, a star. Since that career high point, Wiig has turned down a shot at a sequel, instead focusing a myriad of other stints.

    Kristen Wiig In 'Girl Most Likely' And Jeff Garlin In 'Dealin' With Idiots' Make For Weird Combo Of New Indie Comedies

    It's hard to make people laugh, so no wonder few filmmakers try. While plenty of new releases contain elements of humor in their DNA, from Andrew Bujalski's irreverent "Computer Chess" to Noah Baumbach's sardonic "Frances Ha," the last few months have been weak on new comedies.

    Review: 'Girl Most Likely' Starring Kristen Wiig, Darren Criss, Annette Bening & Matt Dillon

    In 2011's "Bridesmaids," former 'SNL' star Kristen Wiig crafted the perfect vehicle for her comedic talents.

    Review: 'Despicable Me 2' Starring Steve Carell & Kristen Wiig

    The original "Despicable Me," released back in 2010 by Illumination Entertainment (a mini-Pixar that would go on to release "Hop" and "The Lorax") was, at its best, an easily forgettable trifle with a handful of hummable songs by Pharrell Williams. It concerned a super-villain named Gru (Steve Carel...
