    Rodrigo Santoro Will Be J. Lo's Husband In 'What To Expect When You're Expecting'

For every solid turn like Raúl Castro in Steven Soderbergh's "Che" or Jimmy in "I Love You Phillip Morris" there's something like "Post Gr...

    Review: 'The Ledge' Takes Hesitant But Significant Steps Toward Acknowledging Atheism

    Matthew Chapman’s “The Ledge” is sure to provoke plenty of ire. The film, Chapman’s first directorial outing since 1988’s “Heart of Midnight,” opens as a fairly conventional thriller – Gavin (Charlie Hunnam), stands out on a ledge and threatens to jump while detective Hollis (Terrence Howard) plays negotiator.
