    Watch: Paul Rudd As A Lovable Stoner In 'Our Idiot Brother' Trailer

    If you weren't one of the lucky few who made it out to Park City a few months ago, this past week has been a good time to get a taste of what you missed. Trailers have been arriving for Sundance hits like the Brit Marling starring sci-fi drama "Another Earth," Ben Stiller produced British comedy "Submarine," and the John C. Reilly-starring coming-of-age indie "Terri." Plus The Beastie Boys even released their short film "Fight For Your Right: Revisited" in it's entirety, which had it's debut in January during the festival.

    Updated: Sofia Coppola and Kirsten Dunst Won't Re-Team On New Project 'Secret Door'

    Update: Sorry, Coppola fans, looks like we've been had by a hoaxer. When we ran the story yesterday, the account looked genuine enough, but subsequent tweets were more suspicious, in particular 8 pages of script 'leaked' onto the account, 8 pages of some of the worst writing we've ever seen (Sample:...

    Elvis Mitchell Ankles Movieline: Why?

    Elvis Mitchell is such a fascinating, complicated character that he deserves a mini-series. I am not kidding. I could have predicted--would have placed bets--that he wouldn't last as film critic at Movieline, that it was a bad match--mainly because Mitchell is not internet savvy. To succeed online, you have to be able to interact with your readers on Twitter and Facebook, market yourself, have an instinct for building traffic for your stories. Mention Twitter to Mitchell and his eyes go blank. Why did he go there as co-chief film critic with ex-Salon scribe Stephanie Zacharek? For the money. Well, the trouble with making a hefty sala...

    Footage Of Samuel L. Jackson As Nick Fury Shooting Scene On Captain America Set

    I think we all already knew that Nick Fury (as played by Samuel L. Jackson) would make an appearance in the upcoming Captain America movie. I suppose the below video captured by a fan during the film's shoot in New York City confirms that. Their conversation can't be heard however, though we can pro...

    SF360: San Francisco Int'l FF Finds Life Among the Ruins

    Life is short, Eternity isn't." The phrase, writ large on an Evangelical Christian billboard above Detroit's skyline, is meant to proselytize to the unconverted. But it is undoubtedly singled out by director Florent Tillon in his documentary Detroit Wild City as a pithy commentary on the surrounding...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Rio' Defeats 'Madea' Before The Summer Onslaught Begins

    Hollywood doesn’t really recognize the seasons as clearly as you. Which is why even though you’re in school, summer begins in May, and even though you still have a full month of spring, that period usually closes in Hollywood around this time every year. In 2011, “summer” is beginning even earlier w...

Yes, the labor strike woes were difficult, but all big endeavors take a long time to get to the screen. OK, this particular birth hasn't been exactly easy, but it is the eight-years-after-the...
