    Venice '11 Review: 'Killer Joe' A Terrific Texan Tale With A Revelatory Matthew McConaughey Turn

    In recent years, film translations of stage hits haven't been as prevalent as they once were. You might get the occasional "Doubt" or "Rabbit Hole," for instance, but compared to the early days of the talkies, when a large proportion of movies were based on Broadway hits, it's been slim pickings; au...

    Matthew McConaughey To Play Ex-Stripper In Steven Soderbergh's 'Magic Mike'

    Richard Linklater, William Friedkin, Lee Daniels, Jeff Nichols and now Steven Soderbergh. These are just some of the helmers Matthew McConaughey has worked with since 2009's "Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past," the tedious rom-com that seems to have spooked the actor into ditching the easy paychecks that r...

    Matthew McConaughey & Reese Witherspoon Will Get Dirty In 'Mud' For Director Jeff Nichols

    Are we witnessing the renaissance of Matthew McConaughey? That would certainly appear to be the case. The actor seemed to be stuck in a rut of terrible rom-coms (see every movie he did with Kate Hudson) and failed tentpoles ("Sahara"), and we wondered what happened to the actor who charmed us in "Dazed & Confused" and impressed in "A Time To Kill." Well, the actor woke up one morning and decided to line up an array of solid film projects. This year has already seen "The Lincoln Lawyer" become a sleeper hit and favorite with critics and he's been busy lining up auteur-driven projects with Richard Linklater's "Bernie," William Friedkin's "Kille...

    Will Ferrell & Matthew McConaughey To Return For The Third Season Of HBO's 'Eastbound & Down'

    L.A. Film Fest Review: Richard Linklater's 'Bernie' Is A Good Man

    Meet Bernie: a man who has truly found his place in this world as an assistant funeral director and beloved member of the community in the small Texas town of Carthage. Soft spoken with an arguably effeminate Southern accent, of a round stature but always with admirable posture, Bernie Tiede is a ge...

    Matthew McConaughey, Tobey Maguire & Zac Efron Starring In Lee Daniels' 'The Paperboy'

    'Modern Family' Star Sofia Vergara Confirmed For CastLee Daniels hasn't quite had Hollywood bowing before him in the same way that some directors do after picking up an Oscar nomination -- in his case, for "Precious." It's not that the director hasn't gotten involved in projects -- he's attached to ...

    movie review: The Lincoln Lawyer

    'The Lincoln Lawyer' is a well-crafted, well-cast adaptation of Michael Connelly’s best-selling novel, shot on interesting Los Angeles locations. It’s a crime thriller with whodunit overtones, and there are twists right to the very end. So why isn’t it better?

    'The Dallas Buyer's Club' Back On The Market With Matthew McConaughey

    Credit where credit is due; it appears that Matthew McConaughey is done starring in mediocre paycheck fare. After spending years taking off his shirt and smirking through films like "Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past," "Fool's Gold," "Surfer Dude" and "Failure To Launch" (while failing to launch a franchise in "Sahara" and doing forgettable dramas like "Two For The Money"), the actor is striking out in some new directions. His upcoming flick, "The Lincoln Lawyer" seems to be getting better than expected advance buzz and he's lent his name to a couple of bold upcoming comedies, William Friedkin's "Killer Joe" and Richard Linklater's "Bernie." And now...

    Watch: New Trailer For 'The Lincoln Lawyer' Reveals That (Gasp) Creepy Defendant Is Probably Lying

    A new trailer for "The Lincoln Lawyer" has arrived and as much as we want this to be some decent escapist fare and as much as we like the potboilers by Michael Connelly, our expectations for this one are quickly diminishing.
