    J.J. Abrams On The Failure Of "Undercovers": "I F*cked Up!"

    Not sure if he's spoken publicly about the show since it was cancelled. At least, I haven't read or heard anything... until now. I wish Howard Stern would let him talk instead of constantly interrupting him here. I really wanted to hear Abrams get a little more into what he was going for with Underc...

    Why Has Everyone From 'Bridesmaids' Landed Big New Gigs Except Its Leading Lady Kristen Wiig?

    Did The 'Game-Changing' Comedy Really Change Anything?As we've already discussed at length, "Bridesmaids" is not only one of the best films of the year so far, but also a big, giant hit. Already the third-biggest grosser in the Judd Apatow stable, it's had hugely impressive legs, dropping fractionally week-on-week and is heading to at least a $150 million domestic gross, and possibly even more. And, as is usual with hits, most of those involved have gotten big career boosts: Apatow is back on top after a string of under-performers, breakout star Melissa McCarthy has lined up two "Bridesmaids" reunions, one with writer Annie Mumolo, the other ...

    Michael Powell Realized The Awesomeness Of Martin Scorsese's 'Goodfellas' Before Anyone Else

    If the name Michael Powell doesn't mean anything to you, stop reading now and line up your Netflix queue with the some of the films he did with Emeric Pressburger, including "The Red Shoes," "I Know Where I'm Going!" and "A Matter of Life and Death," and then get back to us. But as Martin Scorsese fans already know, his connection with the filmmaker runs deep. He was a good friend of the legendary filmmaker, introducing him to editor Thelma Schoonmaker whom Powell would later marry.

    Trailer Watch: Brad Pitt Stars in Moneyball, Which Could Be Oscar Contender

    Brad Pitt stars as manager Billy Beane in Sony's Moneyball (September 23), a baseball movie about the come-from-behind Oakland A's. Robin Wright, Jonah Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman co-star in the drama adapted by Steven Zaillian (Schindler's List) from Michael Lewis's nonfiction bestseller. Bennett Miller, who had been looking for the right follow-up to Capote, took over the directing reins after Steven Soderbergh fell out of the Scott Rudin (The Social Network) production. Judging from this trailer, this movie looks like a winner, and an Oscar-contender to boot. With The Tree of Life giving Pitt extra cred with Academy voters, who are bou...
