    Headline In Search of a Story: Franco's Oscar Night Did Not Hurt Your Highness Box Office

    Some online headline-mongering makes me crazy. Basically, the idea is to take a celebrity name and fashion a question around it. In this case, did James Franco's lousy Oscar hosting lead to last weekend's weak opening of Your Highness?

    Rufus Sewell To Play Lead Vampire Villain In 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'

    It seems the casting now for Timur Bekmambetov's "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" has been going on forever at this point, and now one more name has joined the cast in what we'd guess is the last major role (right guys?). Variety reports that Rufus Sewell ("Dark City," "The Tourist") has joined the...

    Josh Brolin Creeps Us Out As Young Tommy Lee Jones In 'Men In Black 3'

    It's good to see that Will Smith can still smile considering "Men In Black 3" has gone through a troubled production period that has seen a rotating number of writers trying to get the script up to par, not to mention a budget that is now soaring north of $200 million. But that's not what we're here...

    Ryan Reynolds Wears Those Vibram Five Finger Toe Shoes In Full Pics Of 'Green Lantern' Costume

    We hope some promotions and pay raises went on around the Warner Bros. marketing department because the studio completely turned around sentiment on the upcoming "Green Lantern." After a dreadful first trailer -- which even the studio admitted was a misfire -- they finally dropped a new look in some...

    Cannes Adds Kung Fu Panda 2, Pirates 4; Allen Controls Opener, Adds Baldwin to Rome Film

    No reviews of Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, which does for the City of Light what Manhattan did for New York, will run ahead of its unveiling opening night at Cannes (6 PM Croisette time) on May 11. That means there will be no advance press screening that day. Much like the last Indiana Jones ins...

    Why "Arthur"? Why now? Discussing 2011’s most important film with Michael and Adam

    MK: Adam, you saw Arthur, our planned Monday Hangover title, I assume, largely because you were invited to an advance critics’ screening and didn’t have to pay. The thought of plunking down 13 bucks to see Jason Winer’s remake of a film that I’ve seen easily more than ten times in my life made my liver hurt. Plus, there was a pretty nifty De Palma series going on this weekend at BAM that precluded my choosing to see bad movies over good ones. I must say, though, despite my distrust of this particular remake and my childish love of the original, this is hardly untouchable material, and nothing to feel overly protective about. People get up in ...

    Joe Pesci Joins 'Gotti: Three Generations'; Lindsay Lohan In Talks

    We'll hand it to producer Marc Fiore. For his second movie "Gotti: Three Generations" -- following National Lampoon's "One, Two, Many" -- he's actually lining up some pretty interesting talent all around. With Nick Cassavetes signed on to direct and John Travolta in the lead role, one more actor has...
