    Listen: Track From Clint Mansell's 'Filth' Score, Will Also Tune Up 'The Imitation Game' Starring Benedict Cumberbatch

    Perhaps other than Cliff Martinez, there are few modern film composers who have crossed over into recognition from the regular music world, quite like Clint Mansell. Creating iconic scores for all of Darren Aronofsky's films, along with "Moon," "Last Night" (one of his more underrated efforts) and t...

    TV IS THE NEW CINEMA: Next Time, Larry David Should Play the Cop

    The new Larry David comedy "Clear History," a feature-length one-off that he wrote and stars in, settles into an amiable groove early on and is consistently enjoyable. Which is not to say that it breaks any new ground. It's firmly in the reliable comic sub-genre of the know-it-all who is his own wor...

    Rumor: Mark Strong & Bryan Cranston In The Mix For Lex Luthor In 'Superman Vs. Batman'

    With the dust settled on "Man Of Steel" (an awful lot of dust, given how much of Metropolis was totalled by film's end) it's fair to call it a successful reboot of the Superman franchise. Sure, it divided fans and critics, and didn't hit the giddy billion-dollar heights of the "Dark Knight" films (y...

    'Low Winter Sun' Has the Grit and the Great Cast, But Is It Something You'll Actually Want to Watch?

    "Low Winter Sun" begins with a murder. It's the murder of a cop, by a cop -- or rather, two of them. Frank Agnew (Mark Strong) and Joe Geddes (Lennie James), a pair of Detroit detectives, have decided to kill their corrupt, drug- and booze-addicted colleague Brendan McCann (Michael McGrady).

    Mark Strong on Playing the Same Character Twice in 'Low Winter Sun' and Not Using Detroit for 'Ruin Porn'

He first played Frank Agnew in 2006 for the British "Low Winter Sun," a dark, two-part drama about two Edinburgh policemen who commit and then try to co...

    Review: Cop Thriller 'Blood' Starring Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham, Brian Cox & Mark Strong

    The history of the British police movie is not a glorious one. Perhaps it's because (for the most part) U.K. coppers aren't allowed to carry firearms, which somewhat reduces the capacity for squib-happy action sequences. Or maybe it's the lack of glamorous locations for said shootouts, which can har...
