    Watch: Full Length 'Conan The Barbarian' Trailer Wisely Doesn't Let Jason Momoa Say Too Much

    Jason Momoa is your new action star, folks. Or at least the industry is hoping to sell him that way to audiences.

Bonafide auteurs are now taking a hard look at the format too.

    IFFBoston Review: 'The Whistleblower' Plays More Like A Whisper

Larysa Kondracki’s “The Whistleblower” is just this for Rachel Weisz, only the major flaws in the film’s structure detract from t...
