    Joseph Gordon-Levitt Lining Up Quentin Tarantino's 'Django Unchained'

    Well, here's a pretty easy case of connect-the-dots. We just finished reporting that Joseph Gordon-Levitt's "Premium Rush" had been moved from January 13, 2012 to August 24, 2012 and we figured maybe it was a tactic by Sony to get the film some additional heat after the actor's turn next summer in "...

    John Hawkes Talks Working With First Time Feature Director Sean Durkin In 'Martha Marcy May Marlene'

    Actor Talks Spielberg's 'Lincoln,' Says He'd Love A 'Deadwood' MovieInstant recognizability can be a problem for actors, especially if they have grander ambitions than being a movie star. But John Hawkes somehow found a way to keep from being typecast – or even singularly associated with one role – while having one of the most interesting and unique faces in modern movies. For some viewers, he’s Richard, the shoe salesman who furtively connects with Miranda July in "Me and You and Everyone We Know"; for others, he’s Sol Star, the businessman, sheriff's best friend and town backbone in HBO’s “Deadwood;” and for still others, he’s the terrifyin...

    Martha Marcy May Marlene—movie review

    Even if it had nothing else to offer, Martha Marcy May Marlene would be worth seeing to witness the debut of an extraordinary young actress, Elizabeth Olsen. But writer-director Sean Durkin’s feature, which earned him a Best Director prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, h...

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Bike Thriller ‘Premium Rush’ Changes Gears To August 24, 2012

    So, a vote of confidence or changing out one dubious date for another? January is considered a cinematic dumping ground, but the end of August is not much better. What arrived at the end of the summer this year? "Colombiana," "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark," "Our Idiot Brother" and "The Debt" and all ...

    Scott Cooper Signs On To Direct Conman Tale 'The Man In The Rockefeller Suit'

    Yep, we're nigh on two years since Scott Cooper wowed critics and audiences with his tale of a rundown country singer in "Crazy Heart" and while he hasn't gone behind on the camera on a project since, he's determined to match people like Ridley Scott, Martin Scorsese and Brad Pitt in terms of projec...

    Margin Call—movie review

    Margin Call manages to put a human face on the current economic crisis—but I wish it was as good as its trailer, which is forceful, well-edited, and dramatically scored. The film itself has many good qualities, and an exceedingly strong cast, but it’s a bit dry.

    Trailer Watch: Angelina Jolie's In The Land of Blood and Honey

    Here's a first look at Angelina Jolie's directorial debut, Graham King-produced In The Land of Blood and Honey, to be released by FilmDistrict December 23. A love story set during the Bosnian War (which caused concern early in the shoot), its plot remains unclear. Love, war, explosions, conflicting ...

    Oranges and Sunshine

    I walked into Oranges and Sunshine (written by Rona Munro and directed by Jim Loach) not knowing much about the story except thinking how glad I was to see Emily Watson back on screen in a starring role. I walked out incredibly moved and shocked by this true story.
