    What In The Name of Jessica Chastain Is Going On With 'The Tree of Life' And Its U.K. Release Date?

    Probably the biggest controversy of the week (despite the efforts of Disney and Jennifer Garner) has come over "The Tree of Life," the latest film from Terrence Malick that has been whipping up near-religious levels of anticipation in film fans everywhere, ourselves included. The film was all-but-confirmed to be playing Cannes last week, something that's been rumored ever since Fox Searchlight announced they'd be opening it in the U.S. at the end of May. But a spanner was thrown into the works by Empire's story on Monday that Icon, the distribution company originally founded by Mel Gibson, and who have the rights to the film in a number of te...

    McDreamy and Other Bad Kennedys On Screen

    The new Kennedys miniseries, with Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes as Jack and Jackie, is nearly here after months of high-pitched rhetoric about its accuracy.

    Review, Hanna: A Fairy Tale Princess As Thrillling Action Heroine

    I didn’t think Joe Wright had it in him. In Hanna he leaves behind the polite literary pieces he’s known for – he directed Atonement and the Keira Knightley Pride and Prejudice – and comes through with a thrilling action movie about a teenaged girl trained to kill. He hasn’t entirely lost his liter...

    Interview: 'Rubber' Helmer Quentin Dupieux Talks Killer Pic, Says 'Inception' Is "Not Cool & Boring"

    Reveals His Next Project 'Wrong' Is About A Missing Dog But He'd Rather Not Try And Pitch ItThere are few films we can think of as singularly weird as "Rubber." The story, following a vindictive, lovelorn tire that goes on a killing rampage in a small Southwestern town, is strange and oddly affecting – a tale of loneliness, where the protagonist just happens to be a rubber wheel. And this is before you start talking about the audience who is "watching" the movie unfold (and getting picked off one by one).

    David Yates Eyed For Al Capone Pic 'Cicero'

    Warner Bros. has a thing for crime pics and it's easy to see why. They got Oscar gold for "The Departed" and Ben Affleck's "The Town" was a surprising smash hit at the box office so no wonder they want to feed audience hunger for pics focusing on the seedy criminal underbelly. Ruben Fleischer's "Tal...
