    Watch: Romain Gavras Directed Ad For Adidas With New Track By Justice

    Romain Gavras -- son of celebrated filmmaker Costa-Gavras -- has followed in his father's footsteps and has quickly made an impressive stamp. Last year, he helmed the controversial video for M.I.A.'s "Born Free" and made his directorial debut with his equally disturbing "Our Day Will Come." He's ret...

    Zack Snyder Says His 'Superman' Won't Look Back At The Previous Films

    You gotta kind of be feeling for Zack Snyder right about now. His brainchild, fantasy action pic "Sucker Punch" is just over a week away from hitting theaters and the advance buzz is muted at best and of course, he's got the huge responsibility and weight of fanboy expectation on his back for the up...

    Guest Post: Desert Flower Review by Melissa Silvestri

    Desert Flower is a deeply emotional drama (with light comedic moments) that tells the true story of Waris Dirie, a Somali woman who had undergone female genital mutilation at 3 years old, escaped her rural home village before an arranged marriage at 13, became an indentured servant to the Somali ambassador in London, and then, by chance, was discovered and became a supermodel. But despite her fairy tale rags to riches story, Dirie was still haunted by her past, and all the celebrity brought on by her looks couldn’t deny that what happened to her as a child was an unnecessary act of violence, so she used her position and fame to raise awarenes...

    Jennifer Lawrence Finally Locked In For 'The Hunger Games'

    The process of casting a high-profile, much sought-after role in a major would-be franchise is a complex one, with the advent of movie blogs such as ourselves. Every stage of the process is now as public as it could be, save some kind of weekly reality show documenting it, and it has the side effect of making the casting process seem endless. It's only six weeks or so since rumors of any kind started flying around regarding Gary Ross' adaptation of immensely popular young adult novel trilogy "The Hunger Games," but it's dominated the news to the extent that we're nothing but delighted that a decision's finally been made on the casting of Kat...

    Netflix Enters Original Content World By Backing David Fincher/Kevin Spacey Series 'House of Cards'

    The term 'game-changer' gets bandied around a lot, but rarely accurately. "The Matrix Revolutions," for instance, was billed as such. So was "Tron: Legacy," and neither seem to have changed any games, as such. "Avatar" has the most claim to the title, seeing as how it immediately encouraged every ot...

    SXSW Review: 'Kill List' Is A Shocking, Emotionally Resonant & Horrific Ride

    Few movies have scarred and emotionally terrorized people (including some on the Playlist staff) more than this year's SXSW Film Festival entry "Kill List," the sophomore feature from Ben Wheatley ("Down Terrace"). With its intriguing mixture of kitchen-sink domestic drama, hit man thriller, and creepy mysticism, it's the rare horror film -- which isn't really a "horror film" per se, but includes psychological, emotional and physically horrifying moments -- that doesn't play into any conventions of the genre. Every time you think you've pegged it neatly into one of the aforementioned genres, it'll swing around and surprise you again, and the ...

    Review: 'Limitless' Expands The Boundaries of Bradley Cooper's Charm

    Originally (and enigmatically) titled “Dark Fields,” Neil Burger’s latest film now bears the bland moniker “Limitless,” making it sound like a film scraped together from D.C. Comics’ dregs. But rather than being another entry in the seemingly neverending superhero genre, “Limitless” is a sci-fi-infl...
