    Watch: Trailer For David Mackenzie's T In The Park Festival Rom-Com 'You Instead'

    Brit director David Mackenzie has kind of been all over the place in his career, but through all of his films he's been consistently unremarkable. "Young Adam," "Hallam Foe" and "Spread" have all been serviceable enough and his forthcoming apocalyptic romance “Perfect Sense,” with Ewan McGregor and ...

    iW's Online Video of the Day: iW Critic Eric Kohn Talks Sarah Palin Doc "Undefeated" to BBC

    Stephen K. Bannon's pro-Palin documentary, "The Undefeated," which is being released in ten cities this weekend to unanimous negative reviews from the "liberal media," is a hot topic these days in the sense that those who love Sarah Palin won't stop talking about it, and those who can't stand her wo...

    Trailer For The New "The Thing"

    One of great horror films of the 1980's (one of greatest of all time as far as I'm concerned) is John Carpenter's The Thing, which was a remake of the earlier 1951 version. But Carpenter's film is a truly frightening, suspenseful, claustrophobic movie, helped in large parts by some amazing and genui...

    Trailer Watch: Scorsese's Magical Hugo Conjures Beloved Family Classics

    Brian Selznick, the author of The Invention of Hugo Cabret, a 2007 genre-bending children’s book, was inspired by turn of the 20th-century film pioneer Georges Méliès. Perhaps that's why Selznick’s book seems to translate so easily to the screen.

    With filming taking place last year Montreal, New Orleans, Mexico and San Francisco, and with stills and a teaser poster for the already surfacing earlier this year, there has been a lot of guesswork about when we might see Walter Salles' highly anticipated adaptation of Jack Kerouac's "On The Road....

    Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part Two

    I wouldn’t call myself a Potterhead, but I have certainly enjoyed following the odyssey of Harry Potter and company over the past decade. Nothing can compare to the experience of reading J.K. Rowling’s books, which have been expertly condensed and interpreted by screenwriter Stev...

    Winnie The Pooh

    In an era of hyperactive, overly verbal 3-D animated entertainment, I hope there is still room for a film as sweet and gentle as Winnie the Pooh. At the screening I attended it seemed like the young adults in the audience were enjoying it even more than the kids, reliving their childhood mem...

    Viola Davis' Controversial Serial Killer Role (Worse Than "The Help"?)

    With all this discussion we've had lately regarding Viola Davis and her role in the upcoming film The Help, and whether it's a degrading stereotyped role beneath her considerable talents, it reminded me of a role she played some ten years ago which might be even more controversial.

    Tom Hardy May Play Al Capone In David Yates' 'Cicero' (That May Turn Into A Trilogy)

    Yates Also Considering Directing Stephen King's 'The Stand'Having spent the last four or five years deep in the world of "Harry Potter," making mad bank for Warner Bros. while delivering movies that have more than satisfied the legion of fans around the world, director David Yates and the studio are at an interesting crossroads. With lucrative franchise finished (for now), and with the Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy set to finish in 2012 with "The Dark Knight Rises," Warner Bros. is suddenly seeing two of their biggest moneymakers waving goodbye (though yes, they do have two "The Hobbit" films in their back pocket). Hoping that Yates can ...
