    Watch: First Trailer For Ramin Bahrani's 'At Any Price' Starring Zac Efron & Dennis Quaid

    Primarily known for his low-profile indies like "Man Push Cart," "Chop Shop" and "Goodbye Solo," Ramin Bahrani has made a play to the mainstream (or closer to it anyway) with "At Any Price," a movie that has none other that heartthrob Zac Efron in a lead role....

    Zac Efron Will Play The First Doctor To Look At JFK In Assassination Pic 'Parkland'

    Well, Zac Efron's first year questing for recognition in more adult roles was a bit of mixed bag. He is probably still best known at the end of 2012 for being peed on by Nicole Kidman in "The Paperboy," and his efforts in Ramin Bahrani's "At Any Price" seemed to be overlo...

    Harrison Ford & Zac Efron Join Rob Reiner's Thriller 'You Belong To Me'

    While Zac Efron's post-"High School Musical" career choices haven't been spot on (we hope we never see Hip Hop Efron again), you can't fault him in his desire to change up expectations. And frankly, if his name is helping movies by Lee Daniels ("The Paperboy") and Ram...

    Watch: Zac Efron Goes Hip Hop In Unintentionally Hilarious Jeans Commercial

    It seems that Brad Pitt isn't the only one who can make an embarrassing commercial (or two). Zac Efron has dipped his toes into the celebrity endorsement world, with his own fashion-oriented spot and it's pretty unintentionally hilarious.

    The Paperboy—movie review

    I suppose we all like a taste of Southern-gothic storytelling now and then, so I was ready to enjoy The Paperboy based on what little I’d heard ahead of time. And yes, Nicole Kidman’s unflinchingly flashy performance—in a parade of brightly colored miniskirts—is an attention-...

    'The Paperboy': Nicole, Zac and Alligators

    On screen in The Paperboy and on stage at the New York Film Festival press conference afterwards, Nicole Kidman seemed – and this is compliment though it may not sound like one—less plastic than she has in the recent past. She is fearless and pretty convincing in the film. If she lo...

    Review: Lee Daniels' 'The Paperboy' With Matthew McConaughey & Nicole Kidman Is A Disastrous Flop

    Many people will tell you that "The Paperboy" -- based on Pete Dexter's novel, brought to the screen by "Precious" director Lee Daniels -- is a trash masterpiece, an instant camp classic, so bad it's good. These people, these critics, are simply not to be trusted about an...

    While he’s already hard at work shooting on the Forest Whitaker-led ensemble drama “The Butler” (which just got picked up by The Weinstein Company), Lee Daniels’ latest film “The Paperboy,” which had a less-than enthusiastic response at Cannes earlier this year, i...

    10 New Photos From 'At Any Price' Starring Zac Efron & Dennis Quaid

    To play one early September festival could be seen as a shot in the dark, but if you manage to hit the trifecta of Venice, Telluride and TIFF, you know that the people behind the film have got some confidence in the finished product. Not many films ticked all three destinations off their box this ye...

    Telluride Review: Dennis Quaid, Zac Efron and a Tense Final Act Nearly Salvage Ramin Bahrani's Middling 'At Any Price'

    "Expand or die" is the mantra spouted by farmers in Ramin Bahrani's "At Any Price," a menacing slogan that reflects the explosion of the cornfield market into a $2 trillion industry. It also provides a reminder of the movie's production conditions when compared to everyth...
