    Watch: Trailer For Famke Janssen's Wacky Directorial Debut 'Bringing Up Bobby' With Milla Jovovich

    In case you haven't noticed, we are right in the thick of festival season. Venice is nearing the finish line, Telluride came and went over the weekend, TIFF kicks off on Thursday and festivities in Deauville are now in full swing. That last festival, dedicated to American cinema (ie. getting Hollywood stars over to France to walk the red carpet) boasts a lineup that ranges from the blatantly commerical ("The Lion King") to actually premiering some new, independent movies. And so, model-turned-actress Famke Janssen will show off her directorial debut "Bringing Up Bobby" (not be confused with the direct-to-video Christian comedy) at the festiva...

    Bette Midler & Bailee Madison Join Billy Crystal for ‘Us & Them’

    Director Andy Fickman isn’t known for his deft skills at directing comedy, as the Amanda Bynes vehicle “She’s the Man” and last year’s already forgotten “You Again” bear out, but his next film “Us & Them” (which, we suppose completes an unofficial trilogy of films with bland, pronoun-heavy titles) can’t be knocked for lacking talent. It already boasts Billy Crystal returning from the wilderness after “Analyze That,” and now, Variety reports that Bette Midler -- absent from our screens since the nonsensical remake of George Cukor’s “The Women” committed gynocide at the box-office in 2008 worse than Charlotte Gainsbourg in “Antichrist” -- and p...

    Venice Review: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy Is Good, Not Superb Spy Thriller

    Matt Mueller reviews Tomas Alfredson's Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy, which made its world premiere in Venice. “Trust no one,” says John Hurt, in fine fettle here as British spymaster Control, in the early stages of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.
