    Russell Crowe Being Eyed For MGM's 'RoboCop' Reboot

    Oh, the trades. In their eternal pissing match to shout "first!" or "toldja!" some irritating practices have come into play of late which finds them making sure they toss every little morsel of info they have out there -- even it means burying it in other stories -- or hitting Tw...

    Russell Crowe & Liam Neeson Circle Darren Aronofsky's Biblical Epic 'Noah'

    This week's “Now and Then” column started out comparing and contrasting two movies about assassins — Hanna (Joe Wright, 2011) and Léon: the Professional (Luc Besson, 1994)—and ended up ruminating on 9/11.
