    Watch: Trailer For ‘Life Of Crime,’ The Sorta Prequel To ‘Jackie Brown’ Starring Jennifer Aniston

    Watch: Keira Knightley & Mark Ruffalo 'Begin Again' In Trailer For Musical Dramedy

    So, remember the music industry? Okay, so it still exists, but the notion of an A&R guy stumbling across the next big thing in a local bar and pushing their talent seems rather quaint in an era when artists have no shortage of tools to promote themselves.

    We love Chris Pratt, but you already knew that. The "Parks and Recreation" star has been steamrolling into movies with a nice turn in last year's "Moneyball," a supporting part in this spring's "Five-Year Engagement," a role in Kathryn Bigelow's upcoming "Zero Dark Thirty," and has bagged the lead i...
