    Kevin McKidd & Timothy Spall Also In Cast, Paul Smith To Design CostumesWe're not sure if there's ever been a documented case of a romance springing out of a bank robbery. We're pretty sure we'd be too busy trying to not get shot to get our flirt on with an attractive stranger, but maybe that's just...

    Midnight in Paris Reviews: "Second Tier Woody, Amiable Amuse-Bouche, Gorgeous Kick-off to Cannes"

    While there will always be the odd dissenter, there's no question that Woody Allen's latest Midnight in Paris played well to audiences and press alike in Cannes. This is Woody Light, a sweet funny nostalgic romantic confection that proves a lively counterpoint to the dark and moody fare that tends t...

    Cannes Review: 'Sleeping Beauty' Starring Emily Browning Seduces With The Pervading Power Of A Dream

    Greeted with diffident, muted applause at Cannes -- where it was instantly vaulted into must-see territory the second it arrived in competition despite being the debut effort of a first-time director -- "Sleeping Beauty" is a film that seduces and repels, that flickers between a come-hither smoldering gaze and dead-eyed passive aggression. This is, in many ways, the kind of film you only get at a major festival, a hothouse flower, beautiful and delicate and yet surprisingly hardy and potentially toxic. At the same time, it's exactly the kind of film least well-served by being screened at a major film fest, with considered, slow contemplation ...

    Actor Clifton Powell Goes On A Hate-Filled Spike Lee Tirade... But Why? (Listen)

    Wow! No comment from me... except, this is getting absolutely ridiculous! I don't see the need for this, at least not in this manner. Is this just a publicity stunt? Listen:

    Hilary Swank Joins Matthew McConaughey In 'The Dallas Buyer's Club'

    A tough based-on-a-true story AIDS-and-drugs drama doesn't exactly seem like the usual domain for Matthew McConaughey. In fact, "The Dallas Buyer's Club" has been knocking around for years with Marc Forster and Brad Pitt (who are now doing "World War Z" together) set to take it on at one point, whil...

    Watch: Trailer for 'Horrible Bosses' Promises Some Twisted Summer Comedy Fun

    And finally a non-Cannes related clip of the day. The highly anticipated trailer for New Line's "Horrible Bosses" finally dropped today and all signs point to a comedy classic. Or well... at least a comedy worth our $13 bucks. Directed by "King of Kong" director Seth Gordon (who also directed "Four Christmases" but we'll try not to hold that against him), who has a host of episodes for "Parks and Rec," "Community," "The Office," and "Modern Family" under his belt, the film boasts a script by Michael Markowitz, John Francis Daley ("Freaks and Geeks") and Jonathan Goldstein. It was on our Anticipated Summer Flicks list based on the hilarious s...

    Cannes Review: 'Midnight In Paris' Is A Classically Whimsical Woody Allen Treat

    Sometimes it feels hard to badmouth Woody Allen at all, even when he's in the creative doldrums. Movies like "Annie Hall," "Manhattan," "Crimes and Misdemeanors," and "Hannah and Her Sisters" aren't just masterpieces, they're benchmarks of American cinema. So when he lets off a largely forgettable t...
