    'Killing Them Softly' Star Scoot McNairy & Ruth Negga Join Steve McQueen's 'Twelve Years A Slave'

    Scoot McNairy is on a hell of a run at the moment. The star of "In Search Of A Midnight Kiss" finally turned heads in a big way with Gareth Edwards' 2010 low-budget spectacular "Monsters," and ever since then he's been the toast of the town: he met for roles in "Prometheus" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vam...

    Cannes: Michel Gondry Talks The Inspirations Behind 'The We And The I,' & Talks Criterion Appearance On 'Malkovich'

    The Quebec Student Strike Turns 100 Days Old

    This was the remarkable scene a few blocks from my apartment earlier today. An estimated 250,000+ people took to the streets (some conservative press underreported "tens of thousands," which is total bullshit) to support the 100th day of the Quebec Student Strike in defiance of the ridi...

    The Trouble With "Scandal"

    Like many, I eagerly anticipated the premiere of the show Scandal. A beautiful, black woman who is a power player in D.C., it had me chomping at the bit. With all of the strong television shows for women (Homeland on Showtime, The Good Wife on CBS - although, I don't know why the...

    Rise And Rise Again: Batman, Catwoman & Bane In Three New Posters For 'The Dark Knight Rises'

    Ah, character posters. Once an innovative spin on movie marketing, now they're dragged out needlessly for any film on release. Want Jonny Lee Miller in "Dark Shadows" hanging on your wall? Or Alexander Skarsgard in "Battleship?" You got it. We've never seen any evidence of a Tom Wilkinson one-sheet ...
