    Gordon-Levitt and Rogen Talk 50/50: "It's Honest, That's Why It's Funny"

    Screenwriter Will Reiser labored for six years at the behest of producer Seth Rogen to turn the fictional story based on Reiser's own cancer experience at age 24 into the funny coming-of-age film 50/50. Rogen and partner Evan Goldberg held onto control (and final cut) of the $8-million movie, which ...

    Watch: More Boobs, Blood & Bullets In Red Band Trailer For 'Killer Elite'

    Well, "Killer Elite" opens tomorrow so we suppose this is one last ditch effort to get dudes interested in seeing Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert De Niro wasting some bodies rather than watching Jonah Hill work some Excel spreadsheets in "Moneyball" (we kid, the movie is great, go see it folks)...

    Meryl Streep Says "Never Compromise" In Poster For 'The Iron Lady'

    Well, there's only a handful of movies that are left to weigh in on the awards season race. "J. Edgar" and "Young Adult" both bowed out of the hoopla of Venice/Telluride/TIFF and so did one other film, Meryl Streep's "The Iron Lady."

    Watch: Extended Trailer For David Fincher's 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' Looks Pretty Damn Good

    Is it just us, or are trailers getting shorter? Obviously, there have always been brief teasers around, but even the final clips rarely seem to top out over two minutes these days, happy to tantalize audiences with money shots and the "Inception" fart-trombone noise -- the days of old, with four-fiv...

    Black Women Writers Ruling Broadway This Season

    Just thought I'd toast to what just may be a historical moment (theater geeks can correct me if I'm wrong on this); This season will see 3 Broadway shows (the highest level of commercial theatre/stage achievement in this country) penned/adapted by black women.

    Halle Berry Gets A Big Break...Literally

    Brother, this chick can't catch a break can she? Well she has, but definitely not in the way she expected. Her first big role in a big budget major motion pictures in a while and then this happens.

    EXCLUSIVE! Souléymane Sy Savane on "Machine Gun Preacher," Great White Hope Films & More!

    Recently I had the chance to chat with actor Souléymane Sy Savane of the upcoming film, "Machine Gun Preacher". So far on its festival circuit, the film has received a standing ovation and praise among critics. Here at Shadow and Act the peripheral issue of “Sam Childers” the real life main protagonist [of the film] portrayed by Gerard Butler has been the subject of heated debate, with the sentiment among many being that this is just another one of Hollywood’s “Great White Hope” movies. I spoke with Souléymane about that subject as well as the overall subject-matter of the film and the ongoing social strife in places like the Sudan and his ho...

    Watch: Sam Worthington Steps Out In 'Man On A Ledge' Trailer

    Not to be confused with the other man standing on the edge of a building movie "The Ledge" that opened earlier this year starring Charlie Hunnam, Terrence Howard and Liv Tyler, "Man On A Ledge" takes a similar premise but drops the religious angle and goes strictly for B-movie thrills.

    "Oka!" - "A New African Action Adventure" - Gets Theatrical Release + New Trailer

    Aargh! I certainly didn't expect to exit a screening of Lars Von Trier's latest exercise in misery (Melancholia, which I'm still trying to reach some conclusion on, and will review later) to find this on my virtual desk.
