    Check Out Steve Carell's New Nose In 'Foxcatcher' & Idris Elba's Old Age Makeup In 'Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom'

    With Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" entering the Oscar fray it's time for Sony Pictures Classics to start hustling the picture, but it seems that not everyone in their starry cast — which includes Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Sienna Miller — will be immediately recognizable. Yes, that's Steve Car...

    Ron Burgundy To Release Leather-Bound Book Of His Own, While Details Emerge About Proposed 'Anchorman' Broadway Show

    It was bound to happen: Ron Burgundy, the egotistical news anchor played by Will Ferrell in 2004's"Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" and this winter's "Anchorman: The Legend Continues," will have his own leather-bound book (undoubtedly smelling of rich mahogany).

    Review: 'Despicable Me 2' Starring Steve Carell & Kristen Wiig

    The original "Despicable Me," released back in 2010 by Illumination Entertainment (a mini-Pixar that would go on to release "Hop" and "The Lorax") was, at its best, an easily forgettable trifle with a handful of hummable songs by Pharrell Williams.

    Review: 'The Way, Way Back' Cost Fox Searchlight $10 Million. Was It Worth It?

    If there's one positive result from distributor Fox Searchlight's decision at the Sundance Film Festival to pay nearly $10 million for "The Way, Way Back," it should be this: It will remind people about "Adventureland," a far superior movie about an awkward, frustrated teen spending his summer worki...
