    'The Dark Knight Rises' 14 Month Long Marketing Campaign Begins

    Here's the thing about marketing/viral campaigns. The first time around, it's kind of fun to play along with unlocking every morsel and clue of info about a movie. Anytime after that, it's pretty fucking boring. For example, "Super 8" has had a pretty extensive viral campaign running behind it for a...

    Keenen Ivory Wayans To Be Honored w/ Entertainment Icon Award At 2011 American Black Film Fest

    I plan on being there this year; missed it the last couple of years. I might actually be on a panel... details on that later, once everything is worked out finalized; regardless, I'll be there, panel or not. Maybe I'll run into some of you... maybe not.

    First Listen: 3 Clips From Alexandre Desplat's Haunting Score For 'The Tree Of Life'

    While the overblown Lars Von Trier-Nazi-gate has quickly raced to the top of the Cannes headlines, you might recall that earlier this week a guy named Terrence Malick finally unveiled his highly anticipated "The Tree Of Life." Even days later, for those bumping into each other around the Croisette, the first question seemed to be, "What did you think?" Well, in addition to our review from the festival we had a lot to more to say about the film that though a bit a uneven, still contains pockets of brilliance, awe-inspiring visuals and a thematic reach that simply is unlike anything being attempted in mainstream or indie cinema. In short, it's ...

    Cannes Review: Takashi Miike's 3D 'Hara-Kiri' A Tired Merchant Ivory-Esque Samurai Flick

    Cannes Review: Nicolas Winding Refn's Low-Slung '80s Crime Drama 'Drive' Has A Dark Majesty

    Why is "Drive" -- a seemingly trivial affair about a stuntman and part-time getaway driver, played by Ryan Gosling, pulled into deep and bloody waters on the neon-and-streetlight lit streets of L.A. -- even at Cannes, let alone in competition? It's not merely because of the bloody-but-brilliant background of director Nicolas Winding Refn, whose films (the "Pusher" trilogy, "Bronson," "Valhalla Rising") have demonstrated both an eye for composition and a taste for the jugular. It's not merely because of the film's cinematic roots, with the production seemingly crafted as a clear tribute to '80s-era Michael Mann and other synthesizer-and-faux-l...

    Paramount, Fox, Cameron Relaunch Titanic Again in Retro-3-D

    I know that James Cameron is invested in the future of 3-D, but it pains me that having set the highest possible 3-D standard with the glorious global blockbuster Avatar, the filmmaker is making Paramount and his home studio Twentieth Century Fox happy by retro-fitting the second-highest-grossing fi...
