    Olga Kurylenko Talks Romance Behind ‘Oblivion,’ Sharing ‘Solaris’ With Joseph Kosinksi & Making ‘Empires Of The Deep’

    Hitting theaters today, "Oblivion" brings a rarity to the multiplex: an ambitious, idea drive sci-fi blockbuster that also aims to be popcorn entertainment. The film tells the story of Jack Harper -- played by Tom Cruise -- a drone repairman, working on a battle scarred Earth that has mostly been ab...

    OBLIVION

    Truly original science-fiction ideas are few and far between, at least within the realm of Hollywood moviemaking, so "Oblivion" scores points for both its premise and its execution—up to a point.

    Discuss: Is Terrence Malick's 'To The Wonder' Another Profound Masterpiece Or A Parody Of His Worst Tendencies?

    The last movie that Roger Ebert reviewed was Terrence Malick's "To The Wonder," which seems appropriately fitting. "To the Wonder" is a movie of quiet contemplation, one where an Oscar-winning movie star like Ben Affleck is mostly found in stoic silence and conventional plot mechanics are either esc...

    Olga Kurylenko Discusses Her Real-Life Parallels In 'To The Wonder,' Her Cut Footage With Rachel Weisz & More

    From Bond girl in “Quantum of Solace” to comedic presence in “Seven Psychopaths,” actress Olga Kurylenko has run quite a range of diverse, solid supporting roles thus far, but the two films she has landing in theatres this month -- Terrence Malick's “To The Wonder” and sci-fi thriller “Oblivion” wit...

    Who Is Ben Affleck in Terrence Malick's 'To the Wonder'?

    Like all Terrence Malick's films, To the Wonder is art at its purest. This impressionistic take on a man (Ben Affleck) as he goes through a major relationship with Maria (Olga Kurylenko) and a lesser fling with Jane ( Rachel McAdams), is told almost entirely in voiceover, which blends with poeti...

    Review: Terrence Malick's 'To The Wonder' Is A Raw & Heartfelt Film Of Loss And Longing

    For a man not known for being prolific, an eighteen-month gap between Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life” (the filmmaker’s first film in five years) and his latest “To the Wonder” (which premiered at the Venice Film Festival last summer) isn’t just unprecedented, it’s positively mind-boggling, espe...

    Review: Tom Cruise Vehicle 'Oblivion' Is A Mostly Involving, Visually Spectacular Sci-Fi Epic

    Only a few years ago, big sci-fi action spectacles were confined pretty much to the summer months. But now, the season has crept out to the extent that it essentially lasts from the middle of February (see the release of "A Good Day To Die Hard" this year) to... pretty much the rest of the year, wit...

    Review: Malick Stumbles with 'To The Wonder'

    There are no dinosaurs in Terrence Malick's sixth feature, but there are bison, sea turtles, prairies, toxic sludge, sun-dappled water, more prairies, a conflicted priest (Javier Bardem) and enough pirouetting by Olga Kurylenko to make you imagine that she probably felt dizzy at the end of each day'...

    From Bond Girl to Terrence Malick Muse: 'To the Wonder' Star Olga Kurylenko on Working With the Enigmatic Director and How the Film "Teaches Us A Lot About Love"

    Actors who worked on Terrence Malick's latest film, "To the Wonder," fall into two camps: those who made it into the final cut, and those who didn't. Luckily for Ukrainian-born actress Olga Kurylenko (best known for playing a Bond girl in 007's 2008 outing "Quantum of Solace"), she falls into the fo...

    Did Terrence Malick Use Test Audiences While Editing 'To The Wonder'?

    If there is one word that has come to define Terrence Malick's approach to filmmaking, it has been: secrecy. He generally doesn't reveal plot details (which would be pointless anyway), and he shoots tons of material, only to shape the movie in the editing bay, even if that means dropping actors out ...
