    Hammer Films Lining Up 'The Quiet One' With Michael Sheen Eyed To Lead & Jack The Ripper Tale 'Gaslight'

    Once a go-to institution for screams in the horror world, Hammer Films had a fine output of chillers from the late ‘50s to the mid ‘70s, which included the classic string of monster films in which actor Christopher Lee re-imagined iconic characters like Frankenstein, Dracula, and The Mum...

    Awesome Explosion: Michael Sheen & Lizzy Caplan To Star In Showtime Series 'Masters Of Sex'

    Is this going to be another case of Paul Bettany missing the boat? The actor famously passed on "The King's Speech" (to spend time with his family), and of course, the movie won a bunch of Oscars and became a box office hit. At the beginning of the year, Bettany exited from the develop...

    Rooney Mara Says Terrence Malick's 'Lawless' Won't Shoot Until September; Michael Sheen Reveals Role In Untitled Romance

    While "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" might not have been the box office smash the studio were hoping for (it turns out there's a reason people don't open three-hour-long R-rated thrillers the week before Christmas), there's one person who's done pretty well out of the whole thing: Rooney Mara. On...

    Watch: Promising Trailer For Alt WW2 Drama 'Resistance' With Michael Sheen & Andrea Riseborough

    What if the Germans had won the war? It's a question that's plagued hacky science-fiction and historical novel writers since...well, the Germans didn't win the war, but that doesn't mean it can't be the source of compelling fiction. Philip K Dick's masterpiece "The Man In The High Castle" is a good ...

    movie review—Midnight In Paris

    I had a smile on my face from the moment Woody Allen’s latest film began, with an idyllic series of Parisian street scenes set to the music of jazz great Sidney Bechet…and the film maintained that lovely quality all the way to the finale. Allen may be a fatalist, as he often cla...

    If you were, or still are, a post-millennial creative-type, there’s a chance you channeled the emotions and experiences of events like the Columbine massacre or 9/11 into some form of art. Very few of these ended up being films, books, or songs where audiences found meaning. Several of these people ...

    Tribeca Review: Julia Roberts-Produced 'Jesus Henry Christ' Is Blasphemously Joyless

    There's a moment in "Jesus Henry Christ" when a character is said to be in poor health. When asked what happened to him, the answer is "The Bulls won the championship." We flash back to 1998, where a lisping ethnic caricature sits on a couch; his shoulders slumped, defeated as the television blares news of the Bulls' championship triumph. The joke, we're meant to assume, is that there were serious repercussions to Chicago winning that championship, though we never exactly see what happens to our doomed, ultimately irrelevant character. Later, we learn in another cutaway occurring a half hour later for no apparent reason, that the man left the...
