    Trailer Watch: Long-form Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: Looks Good, Lacks Edge

    David Fincher's long form trailer for December 21's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is here, and it's a testament to just how good the teaser trailer is (also below). In this case, less is more, with emphasis on how instead of what. The new trailer reveals practically the entire plot (which many of us know well by now, anyway), as well as Rooney Mara's Swedish accent and her lack of Noomi Rapace intensity. Sure, she looks the part, but we're still on the fence. We aren't as impressed as ThePlaylist, but it does look significantly more polished than the Swedish version of the novel. We can't wait to experience this feel bad movie of Christmas ...

    Michael K. Williams Says He Lost The 'Django Unchained' Lead, But There May Be Another Part For Him

    Actor Suggests Tarantino May Write A New Role For Him In The Slavery/Western EpicYou probably know him best as Omar Little from "The Wire" or perhaps as Chalky White in "Boardwalk Empire," and if you've seen his imposing presence on either of those shows, you'll know why many people (including us) pegged him as the perfect lead for Quentin Tarantino's upcoming picture, "Django Unchained." The spaghetti western/slavery revenge pic has been gearing up over the last few months for a planned January shoot in New Orleans. After much speculation that saw Will Smith openly courted for the movie (with the actor's longtime studio home of Sony even goi...

    Review: 'Dolphin Tale' Is A Thoroughly Average, Squeaky Clean Family Movie

    In the new, squeaky clean family film "Dolphin Tale," based on the true story of an injured dolphin that is outfitted with a cutting edge prosthetic tail, there are enough civic and spiritual virtues levelled at you to fill several Sunday school classes. The importance of family, friendship, never leaving someone behind, accepting those with disabilities, respecting the ocean, and studying hard in class, are reiterated repeatedly, so much so that you suspect this may be a sly "Christian values" movie dressed up like an eco-friendly Saturday afternoon romp (it does come from the same people who made "The Blind Side" so keep that in mind). But ...

    Where Did This Come From? Trailer & Pics For 'Justice' Starring Nicolas Cage & January Jones

    Well, this is a weird surprise. We have to admit, we had pretty much entirely forgotten about "The Hungry Rabbit Jumps." First announced way back in September 2009, the film stars the pretty promising trio of Nicolas Cage, January Jones and Guy Pearce in the Tobey Maguire-produced film about a man (Cage) who becomes involved with an underground vigilante organization after a brutal attack on his wife (Jones). And with Roger Donaldson ("The Bank Job," "Thirteen Days," "No Way Out") -- who is no stranger to making genre fare classier than it should be -- directing, and with comparisons to "The Game" and "Strangers on a Train" being tossed aroun...
