    Nick Nolte Joins Jason Statham's 'Parker'

    ...and then there's Nick Nolte, the two-time Academy Award nominee who seemed to be in every movie in the '90s and then hit a weird patch in the aughts where he was less in demand (even though 2002's "The Good Thief" features one of his finest performances), but seems to be be back to his ever-busy ways. While we'll ignore the fact that he was in "Arthur" and "The Zookeeper" this year, he's got the hotly buzzed "Warrior" and the highly anticipated Michael Mann/HBO series "Luck" on the horizon and he recently came aboard the Robert Redford/Shia LaBeouf vehicle "The Company You Keep." And while we may not approve too highly of his next move, hi...

    Steven Soderbergh Is Doing Second Unit Shooting On 'Hunger Games'

    While retirement is still in the cards for Steven Soderbergh, the director moves to the beat of his own interests and impulses and if anything, his always-full calendar proves he likes to be occupied and on the move. But even with that said, we never could have guessed he would take on something lik...

    Marvel Is Going To Give 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Their Own Movie

    It's no surprise that Marvel has been trying to figure out what to do with their movie franchises now that they've pretty much milked their A-list characters. There are only so many "Iron Man" movies you can do (we hope) and the comic house is now looking to get their second tier characters on the big screen. As you know, "Ant-Man" and "Doctor Strange" are pushing ahead and last year, chatty Marvel head Kevin Feige hinted at what may be around the corner saying, "I think what Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction have done with 'Iron Fist' lately is exciting. I think 'Black Panther' and Wakanda has some amazing potential to be a feature film. 'Doctor...

    Two Clips from One Day, Starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess: Destined To Be Hit or Miss?

    Check out a clip from Lone Scherfig's One Day below and another one at IMDb. Here's a look at the poster, more details. Official trailer is also below. One Day opens August 19. This clip is better than the teaser trailer, which had a woeful voiceover, but we're not feeling it yet, especially not wit...

    Watch: Trailer For TIFF Vanguard Entry & Controversial Cannes Critic's Week Winner 'Snowtown'

    Here's the thing with film festivals, you may head into them thinking that you already know what the "must see" films are but inevitably, the real surprises and pleasures aren't easily predictable and arise from smaller flicks that thanks to word of mouth begin to take on a life and shape of their own. Such was the case with "Snowtown," a film that played the Cannes Critic's Week sidebar back in May (and took home a FIPRESCI Prize) and was a picture we heard murmurs about before we left for France, and once we arrived on the Croisette was something that kept coming up in conversation. And after turning heads -- and revolting many -- in Cannes...

    Watch: Red Band Trailer For 'The Sitter' Is Basically 'Superbad'/'Pineapple Express' With Kids

    It seemed earlier this spring everyone's funny bone was severely damaged when no one showed up for the awesomely retarded "Your Highness," David Gordon Green's R-rated fantasy adventure. Maybe it was the swords or perhaps James Franco, but for whatever reason, no one wanted to get with it. Your loss...

    Viola Davis Creates Production Company w/ Period Piece On Black Homesteaders + New HBO Deal Project

    Just read a new Times magazine profile of Viola Davis in anticipation of the release of The Help, which she stars in. But don't worry, while the article laments Ms Davis' *unfair* status in the industry, having to play supporting BBF or downtrodden roles more often than not (she took the minister ro...

    What Would You Say Is The Most Important Black Film Of The Decade?

    Funny but we haven't asked this question before on S & A, so why not go ahead ask it now. What, in your opinion, is the most important black film of the past decade? For me the answer is pretty obvious... Precious.

    First Look: Henry Cavill as Superman

    Check out Henry Cavill as Superman. Chris Nolan and Zack Snyder's Man of Steel won't arrive until June 2013, but that doesn't mean we can't get excited about a ridiculously good looking Brit in tights.
