    Russell Crowe & Lucy Liu Get Close In New Pics From 'The Man With The Iron Fists'

    What is there left to say about "The Man with the Iron Fists"? It's directed by Wu-Tang Clan member RZA, he directed it and co-wrote the script with Eli Roth and it's a goddamn kung-fu movie.

And thus, the marketing department has slapped together a poster that looks like it was an outtake from the photo sessions for the "Contraband" one sheet. Welcome t...

    It's safe to say that "L.A. Confidential" wasn't greeted with especially high expectations in the run up to its release. James Ellroy's 1990 book, the third of his "L.A.
