    Review: Starpower Like Julia Roberts & Ryan Reynolds Can't Save Flaccid 'Fireflies In The Garden'

    “Fireflies in the Garden” is the cinematic equivalent of going out to dinner with your friend’s family and then having to watch them all fight like cats and dogs the whole time: it’s got to be worse for the people going through it, but you sure as hell have no interest in watching it. Writer-director Dennis Lee, who I can only imagine drew from a deep well of personal experiences – or if he didn’t, clearly suffers from dysfunction envy – created this vivid tale of an embittered writer returning to his childhood home to confront a troubled past. But he failed to realize that personal catharsis isn’t the same as popular entertainment, especiall...

    Ex-'The Hobbit' Actor Rob Kazinsky Joins Guillermo Del Toro's 'Pacific Rim,' Willem Dafoe In Talks

    If you're cast in a major blockbuster, only to be replaced publicly, it can be hard to get your career back on track again. Stuart Townsend, for instance, shot scenes as Aragorn in "Lord of the Rings," before Peter Jackson decided he was too young, and replaced him with Viggo Mortensen. Townsend's heat remained for a little while -- he was the lead in "Queen of the Damned," and one of "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," but, well, we know what happened to those, and Townsend hasn't had much luck in recent years. Dougray Scott, meanwhile, was meant to play Wolverine in Bryan Singer's "X-Men," but had to bow out when "Mission Impossible 2"...

    Exclusive: First Look At Willem Dafoe In Abel Ferrara's Latest "4:44 Last Day On Earth"

    The idea of the end of the world is an endless mine for filmmakers. Principally, of course, they're big-budget action fests, whether showing the disaster in progress, like the many, many examples in Roland Emmerich's career, or showing the aftermath, like "Mad Max" and his plentiful rip-offs. But sometimes, you get lower-key takes on the same subject matter, which are inevitably infinitely more insightful about an idea that, let's be honest, hangs around the back of most of our minds. From Don McKellar's "Last Night" to the upcoming Steve Carell/Keira Knightley drama "Seeking A Friend At The End of the World," it's surprisingly easy to make t...

    Willem Dafoe In Talks For Stephen Sommers' 'Odd Thomas'

    Willem Dafoe is a man of eclectic taste, vacillating between decidedly arthouse fare like "Antichrist" and "The Dust Of Time," low rent fare like "Mr. Bean's Holiday" and "Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant" and straight up tentpole movies such as "Spiderman" and the upcoming "John Carter Of M...
