    The Actor-Musician Breed: From Gosling, Deschanel and Johansson to Crowe, Reeves and Bridges

    Some musicians try to crossover into film (some successfully, others not), and some actors try to crossover into music (ditto). To earn commercial success in both arenas you usually need--more than actual talent in either department--to be accessible pop-star material. On the one hand are mainstream...

    Watch: Red Band Trailer For Yet Another Casual Sex Comedy 'Friends With Benefits'

    Why the fuck not, right? After every other studio dropped trailers for "Hall Pass," "No Strings Attached" and "Just Go With It" in the past 24 hours, why not one more? It seems like studio marketing executives never heard of audience fatigue, but whatever, you're going to be seeing these trailers fo...

    film review: FAIR GAME

    My conversion is now complete: I am a card-carrying Naomi Watts fan. I don’t know why I wasn’t her biggest booster before; I’ve liked her work in films as diverse as King Kong and The Painted Veil, but after seeing her this year in Rodrigo Garcia’s Mother and Child, Woody Allen’s You Will Meet a Tal...

    Rumor: Marvel Postponing Pre-Production On 'The Avengers' Due To Ballooning Costs?

    Right now, Marvel is behaving a lot like they just graduated from college. Yes, that "Iron Man" internship opened a lot of doors, but the "Hulk" side venture didn't really yield the results they were hoping for. Their side projects for next summer -- "Thor" and "Captain America" -- do show promise, ...

    Mary Jane Watson Will Not Appear In The Upcoming 'Spider-Man'

    Contrary to early reports, it looks like the new Peter Parker won't be the meat in a two-lady sandwich. Redheaded love interest Mary Jane Watson, played by Kirsten Dunst in the previous three "Spider-Man" films, won't factor into the new reboot of the character scheduled for 2012. Consider this good news for the purists who were upset that Mary Jane was considered Peter's one-and-only in the previous Spidey adventures. In the comics, not only was the web-slinger far from a one-woman man, but he remained haunted by the passing of his first true love, Gwen Stacy. Once she died at the hands of the Green Goblin, however, he became a total and com...

    'Hot Tub Time Machine' Director Steve Pink To Helm 'The Toxic Avenger' Remake

    If at first you don't succeed, try try again. And in the case of Troma's "The Toxic Avenger," they are yet again trying to find a way to make the trashy '80s guilty pleasure culturally relevant. If you remember, there was a failed cartoon series on Fox in 1991, and if you think back really hard, you...
