    Review: Brilliant Animated Movie 'ParaNorman' Is One Of The Summer's Biggest (And Best) Surprises

    This summer has been full of big, glitzy animated movies from most of the major studios that have made tons of money but left audiences cold. None of them were particularly imaginative, entertaining or emotionally involving, instead choosing to coast on a steady stream of solid (if not exactly dazzl...

    Jason Bateman, Zac Efron, Goldie Hawn & Leslie Mann Join Adam Shankman's 'This Is Where I Leave You'

    For the most part, Adam Shankman has been known for big screen spectacle, bringing to multiplexes the likes of "Bedtime Stories," "Hairspray" and this summer's '80s musical "Rock Of Ages." But the helmer is looking to shift gears a bit as earlier this year he si...

Born out of the Sundance Labs, the film premiered to a warm reception at Park City last year but -- possibly due to a recent incarcer...

    Paul Rudd, An iPad & A Toilet: It's The Poster For 'This Is 40' Plus A New Image From The Film

    When Judd Apatow's "This Is 40" was first announced, it was described as not a sequel to "Knocked Up" by Universal even though the film is clearly a look at the lives of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) a few years after the events of that film. Now the new poster (like the recent trailer) ...

    Watch: Trailer For Judd Apatow's 'This Is 40' Starring 'Knocked Up' Duo Paul Rudd & Leslie Mann

    This is 38? Middle age comes crashing down hard in "This Is 40," the sort-of-sequel to "Knocked Up," and the first trailer is here to give us a taste of Judd Apatow's latest turn behind the camera, one that finds him once again stretching into dramatic territory while stil...

    'Warrior' Actor Carlos Miranda Joins Sofia Coppola's 'The Bling Ring' Plus Details On The Script

    While most of us on staff were far from fans of Sofia Coppola's last picture, "Somewhere" (a picture that does have its defenders, nevertheless), the filmmaker is so gifted, and has enough goodwill from her earlier pictures, that we're more than happy to follow her wherever she's going. And in the l...

    Leslie Mann, Israel Broussad & Pack Of Newcomers Join Sofia Coppola's 'The Bling Ring'

    Is Sofia Coppola a fan of Judd Apatow films? Man, we hope so, because if that's the case just give us a call Sofia, and we'll bring "Knocked Up" and some Orville Redenbacher.

    Beautiful Trailer, Bland Poster Debut For 3D Stop-Motion Animated ‘ParaNorman’

    2011 hasn’t exactly been an exceptional year for animated films. Besides this spring’s deliciously strange “Rango” and this summer’s gorgeous, supple “Winnie the Pooh,” there hasn’t been a whole lot to fawn over, animation-wise. (When Pixar unloads a colossal letdown like “Cars 2,” you know the medium is having an “off year.”) Thankfully, 2012 is poised to be an embarrassment of riches, with new movies from proven studios like Blue Sky (“Ice Age: Continental Drift”), Illumination ("The Lorax"), Disney ("Wreck-It Ralph" and Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie") Aardman (“The Pirates! Band of Misfits”) and the beloved Studio Ghibli (“The Secret World o...
