    There Are No Bedbugs In The Scotiabank Theatre

    It's amazing that one little tweet erupted into some serious hysteria yesterday when it was suggested that someone had attended a screening at Toronto's Scotiabank Theatre and got bedbug bites. Considering I'd been there the night before, I wasn't exactly feeling good about the news, and neither was the U.S. film world, which had a story on the tweet up and running on The Hollywood Reporter in a matter of hours... But never fear, us Canadians are resourceful folks, and by today the folks at TIFF and the folks at Cineplex (the company that owns the Scotiabank) had confirmed bedbugs have not made a home in the theatre. I mean, I had thought si...

    EXCLUSIVE CLIP: Vincent Cassel in Mesrine: Public Enemy #1

    Jean-François Richet’s Mesrine: Killer Instinct opened strong on 28 screens this past weekend, which is a good sign for Mesrine: Public Enemy #1 (part 2, which opens September 3).

Check out the exclusive clip below from Mesrine: Public Enemy #1 and our interview with Cassel here, in which he talks about his upcoming films; Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan and David Cronenberg's Dangerous Method...

    What if cartoon celebrities voiced live-action characters instead of the other way around? We now get an idea, as someone has taken the famous scene from "Full Metal Jacket," in which the new troops meet drill instructor Sgt. Hartman (R. Lee Ermey) and replaced the actors' voices with those of Disney characters. Goofy is 'Joker,' Pluto is 'Cowboy,' Mickey Mouse is 'Pyle' and, most impressive, Donald Duck is Hartman. Whoever is doing the first three voices, they aren't too convincing. The Pluto gag is pretty funny, but especially the Goofy could have been more exact. Without the context, I would not have recognized it. The Donald, however, is ...
