    Russell Crowe Says We'll See Krypton & Superman Is "Super Sonic" In 'Man Of Steel'

    Of all the blockbusters coming up in 2013, at this stage perhaps the only one to match “Star Trek Into Darkness” in the anticipation stakes is Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel.” Any time we get to see a new Superman movie on the big screen that’s likely to be the case,...

    Review: 'Broken City' Is A Political Corruption Thriller That Never Quite Comes Together

    'Les Miserables' Director Hooper Digs Into His Musical Audacity, It's Like 'Avatar' or Shakespeare

    Tom Hooper sounds sniffly. He calls it "flying related." He's calling me from Japan, where he's about to attend yet another premiere of "Les Miserables." "I have not managed to show the movie to our own Royal family," he says. "Now I'm showing it to the Crown Prince of Japan."

    As we look back at the year in film, we find -- as always -- there's room for improvement. Often by simply replacing a lead actor, a world of difference could be made on the overall effect of the film. Films come together the way they do for a reason. Often it's more about a star's marqu...
