    Venice Review: Michael Shannon Vehicle 'The Iceman' Is A Tired Take On The Mob Flick

    Premium Rush—movie review

    I don’t know how a film this entertaining and expertly-made can show up the last week of summer, but I’m not complaining.

    New Photos: Michael Shannon, Winona Ryder & Chris Evans In 'The Iceman'

    If there's one genre that's more played out than the mob movie, it's the hitman picture. But can being based on a real-life tale give a film a little added edge when it falls into both categories? That's what the makers of "The Iceman" are hoping, and a stellar cast, led by Oscar-nominee Michael Sha...

    Bikin' Ain't Easy: New Pics From 'Premium Rush' With Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Michael Shannon

    Basically, for the rest of the summer, there's "The Dark Knight Rises" and then, Everything Else. Christopher Nolan's superhero flick will pretty much tower over and dominate the rest of the competition as the blockbuster season winds down, but one movie is hoping that if you like ...
