    Watch: The Earth Is Scorched In First Trailers For 'Young Ones' Starring Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning & Nicolas Hoult

    It’s been a while since we've heard anything about the dystopian Sundance film “Young Ones.” Screen Media bought the film in May, but the months between its Utah debut and sale were rather quiet. That’s changing, with the release of two new trailers. Presumably a release date is not far behind.

    Adèle Exarchopoulos Celebrates 'Bastille Day,' Michael Shannon Joins 'Freeheld' With Ellen Page & More

    Despite roles in blockbusters like “Prometheus,” “Thor” and “Pacific Rim,” Idris Elba still hasn’t had that one role that would catapult him into a household name—sorry, “The Wire” doesn’t count—but he’ll be getting his shot at the spotlight with the previously-announced action vehicle “Bastille Day...

    Interview: Jake Paltrow On How Spielberg & Anime Inspired 'Young Ones,' Starring Michael Shannon & Elle Fanning

    Part western, part science fiction, wholly original—it’s not easy to pin down — writer/director Jake Paltrow’s latest film, “Young Ones,” which premiered this week at the Sundance Film Festival (read our review here), is worth an examination.

    Sundance Review: 'Young Ones' Doesn't Quite Become the Timeless Futuristic Western It Strives To Be

    What Jake Paltrow's futuristic western may have in subtle stylistic touches, it lacks in finding a real and sustainable emotional core.

    Sundance Review: ‘Young Ones’ Starring Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult, Elle Fanning & More

    In the not so distant future, a catastrophic drought has ravaged the United States turning it into an arid dystopian wasteland. While citizens have migrated away from the most heavily affected and devastated areas, some of the more hard-bitten and prideful survivors have refused to leave their lands...

    Recap: ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Season 4 Finale “Farewell Daddy Blues”

    “After today I’m not making plans,” Atlantic City kingpin Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) says on the phone. If only he really knew how true that might be.

    Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Season 4, Episode 9 ‘Marriage and Hunting’

    In the blink of an eye, fortunes change. One week you’re up, the next week you’re down.

    Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Season 4, Episode 5 'Erlkonig'

    "Boardwalk Empire" either canters or gallops, there's usually no in between trot, but we suppose we should accept it and be happy that things are moving forward at a nice gait (though pacing would be nice). The fifth episode of the fourth season, the German word "Erlkönig"—named after a thematic poe...

    Michael Shannon Moves Into '99 Homes'; Nicole Kidman & Colin Firth Hug 'Paddington' & More

    While Ramin Bahrani's leap to the slightly-bigger-time earlier this year with "At Any Price" didn't quite work, we still admired the hell out of the movie. Putting the plot aside, which is perhaps too overstuffed for its own good, with some genre elements that don't quite work, Bahrani's study of mi...
