    Watch: U.K. Trailer For Gambling Comedy 'Lay The Favorite' Starring Bruce Willis & Rebecca Hall

    Premiering at Sundance in January to rather dismal reviews -- including our own which called it an "empty comedy" -- and acquired by The Weinstein Company which has yet to give the film a release date, who knows when Stephen Frears' star-studded "Lay The Favorite" will land s...

    Review: A Breezy, But Meandering 'A Bag Of Hammers' Is Only Half A Movie

    There are ample pleasures of the half-movie. Features of the half-film include a lack of b-plot, a meandering tone, haphazard scenes, and a barely feature-length runtime.

    Jessica Chastain Passes on a Part in Iron Man 3

    When the news surfaced last week that Jessica Chastain was circling a part in Iron Man 3 I was a bit surprised.  I just doesn't seem to be her type of film.  She does not scream big Hollywood action flick.  Look at her body of work.  Last year she starred in five films and wa...

    Jim Broadbent Joins Eric Bana & Rebecca Hall In John Crowley's Untitled Thriller, Because Jim Broadbent Is In Everything

    It's a little known fact, but in the mid 1980s, in a bid to fight underemployment in certain aspects of the entertainment industry, the British government passed the Broadbent Act, which set up a quota that one in four British movies would have to cast British character actor favorite Jim Broadb...

    Eric Bana & Rebecca Hall Starring In Untitled Thriller From 'Boy A' Helmer John Crowley & 'Eastern Promises' Writer Steven Knight

    Despite the idea of the suspense thriller for grown-ups being routinely declared dead, the genre itself refuses to stay dead. Every few months, some such film will quietly make a tidy profit at the box office, despite not gathering the same attention as pictures with more explosions in them. Last ye...

    Watch: Rebecca Hall & Bruce Willis Have A Sunset Strip Singalong In First Clip From Stephen Frears' 'Lay The Favorite'

    LFF '11 Review: Rebecca Hall Chiller 'The Awakening' Is Flawed, But Also Kind Of A Blast

    It might seem ingracious to complain, but film festivals can sometimes be something of a slog. For every transcendent piece of cinema, there are two or three well-meaning, firmly mediocre pictures clogged with mental illness, child abuse and miserable sex. Which is exactly why most film festivals mi...
