    Watch: Brit Marling Talks 'Another Earth' In New Look At The Sundance Hit Film

    EXCLUSIVE: There is perhaps no greater Cinderella story this year on the indie circuit than that of actress, writer and producer Brit Marling. Arriving at Sundance with two films, "Another Earth" and "Sound Of Your Voice," performing triple duties on each film, she soon saw major buzz surround both works, with Fox Searchlight picking up rights for the pair, and the former flick earning two prizes for director Mike Cahill. Certainly not a bad way to make your entrance into Hollywood. Well, "Another Earth" will be the first film out of the gate for the studio and Marling, and as it arrives in theaters this weekend, we're proud to present a new ...

    Jim Sheridan Aims to Spook You in Trailer for "Dream House"

    Acclaimed Irish director Jim Sheridan ("In America," "My Left Foot") takes his first swing at the mainstream thriller genre with "Dream House," and by the looks of the just-released trailer things look awfully tired.

    Watch: Daniel Craig Seems To Be Losing His Mind In Trailer For 'Dream House'

    Poor Jim Sheridan, we love the dude, but he seems to have fallen on a run of weird, wacky luck. The director followed up his beautiful and brave "In America" somewhat inexplicably with the 50 Cent thingy "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'."

A bit unfair really, since it was a very strong film with excellent performances all around by Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal and Natalie Portman with a breakthrough turn by Bailee Madison. But She...

Uh... no. And it co...

    Review: 'Captain America' Swells With Patriotic Pride & Delivers An Old School Superhero Adventure

    Well-paced, classical in nature, and featuring a completely different setting -- the 1940s during WWII which makes it a big tonal departure from other Marvel Films -- "Captain America: The First Avenger," is a relatively muscular and sturdy super-hero tale which is sometimes facile, but effective en...
