    Review: 'Rapt' Succumbs To Derivative Plotlines & Insubstantial Moments

    Where do we start with Stanislas Graff? Played with quiet confidence by Yvan Attal, the man is the chairman of a seriously lucrative business, well-respected by his peers. A loving family surround him, fit with two admiring teenage daughters and a wife that doesn't think sleeping in a separate room is a red flag of any sort. In secret, Graff is a heavy gambler and we're treated to a brief snippet of the showboat at a grimy poker game. And, just like any wealthy male in a film like this, he's got a separate flat where he sees whatever mistress he's currently shagging. Director Lucas Belvaux establishes the whole of this guy efficiently, moving...

    Jason Sudeikis Is In Everything Now, Joins 'Eastbound & Down'

    By the time the clock runs out on 2011, one thing will be clear, Jason Sudeikis will be the comedy equivalent of Jude Law circa 2004. Hell, barely six months are out and Sudeikis has already been in "Hall Pass," "Horrible Bosses" (opening this weekend) and he even put on a suit and hosted the MTV Movie Awards last month. And coming up, he's got two more raunchy comedies on the way, with "A Good Old Fashioned Orgy" and if we're going to cheat a little, he's got an appearance in the next year's omnibus comedy "Movie 43" already in the can. And if returning for another year on "Saturday Night Live" this fall isn't enough, he's going to get in on...

    movie review: Project Nim

    If movies about talking cars or warlike robots don’t interest you, Project Nim is the latest documentary (following Buck) to offer a satisfying, adult alternative. It tells a story that is both stranger and more thought-provoking than most Hollywood fare.

    Naomie Harris Will Play Moneypenny In 'Bond 23,' Javier Bardem & Ralph Fiennes Locked In

    For the most part, the Daniel Craig-era of Bond has left behind many of the franchise's most familiar tropes; aside from Judi Dench as MI6 head honcho M, and the CIA agent Felix Leiter played by Jeffrey Wright, it's a been a fresh start: no Q, no Blofeld, no SPECTRE, no gadgets. It worked out nicely...

    'Solitary Man' Team Brian Koppelman & David Levien To Rewrite & Direct Neil Strauss' 'The Game'

    No book or author/personality has been as sleazy in recent memory as Neil Strauss. His breakout bestseller "The Game" is part memoir and part expose, chronicling Strauss’ own adventures in the guys club world of pick-up artists and his experiences and successes with the techniques he learned from these guys that more or less involves reducing women to a bunch of base stereotypes. Basically, it’s kind of total douchebag stuff that at the same time is repulsively fascinating. So while we're a little bummed that "Solitary Man" team Brian Koppelman and David Levien have made this their next film, we're hopeful they'll be able to find some depth ...
