    Watch: Full Length 'Conan The Barbarian' Trailer Wisely Doesn't Let Jason Momoa Say Too Much

    Bernardo Bertolucci To Direct 3D Drama 'Io e Te' Later This Year

    Like it or not, 3D is here to stay and is no longer just the plaything of James Cameron or studios looking to beef up their bottom line on tentpole fare. Bonafide auteurs are now taking a hard look at the format too. Martin Scorsese is diving into stereoscopic shooting for his upcoming "Hugo Cabret"; Francis Ford Coppola's "Twixt Now And Sunrise" will have a 3D sequence; Takashi Miike goes to Cannes this year with his 3D "Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai"; Steven Soderbergh would have shot "Contagion" in 3D if the cameras were ready in time; Baz Luhrmann is strongly considering the format for "The Great Gatsby" and now, one of cinemas greatest l...

    Spout About: "Catfish" Directors Disappointingly Helming "Paranormal Activity 3"; More "Thor" Stuff

    Happy Cinco de Mayo, which this year falls on a Thursday -- or, appropriately for this week, let's call it Thor's Day (why "Thor" is not officially opening a day early, I don't understand).

    IFFBoston Review: 'The Whistleblower' Plays More Like A Whisper

    Hollywood hasn’t gotten tired of taking great leading actresses and sticking them in films meant to showcase their strengths, usually in an exaggerated plea for an Oscar. Larysa Kondracki’s “The Whistleblower” is just this for Rachel Weisz, only the major flaws in the film’s structure detract from t...

    'Bad Teacher' Director Jake Kasdan Circling Action-Comedy 'Family Getaway'

    You probably didn't see "Zero Effect" when it was released way back in 1998. But you should have -- it's one of the most terminally underrated pictures of the last couple of decades, a fearsomely smart, funny, touching rejig of the Sherlock Holmes archetype, with a career best performance from Bill ...

    'Catfish' Directors Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman To Helm 'Paranormal Activity 3'

    After cravenly exploiting the misery and loneliness of someone who needed therapy in private and not on 500 screens nationwide, Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost established themselves not as filmmakers but as crass, dishonest provocateurs. So is it a surprise that the "Catfish" directors would make a ...
