    Ben Affleck's 'Argo' To Follow 'The Town' Template, Will Open On September 14, 2012

    It's probably safe to say that last year, Warner Bros. knew they had a good movie on their hands with "The Town," but that they didn't expect it would turn into a $150 million worldwide hit and Oscar contender. Riding high off positive notices at Venice and TIFF, "The Town" rolled into theaters just a few days after unspooling in Toronto and became a box office hit, and when it all ended, the movie made some considerable bank and even landed an Oscar nomination for Jeremy Renner. Not bad. Not messing with what worked last time, WB has dated "Argo," Ben Affleck's next directorial effort, for September 14, 2012, and it's likely they are hoping ...

    Review: 'Sarah Palin: You Betcha!' Is A Surprisingly Toothless Bore

    Nick Broomfield is a British documentarian with a reputation for being boldly unafraid to ruffle people’s feathers. In films like “Biggie & Tupac” and, most notoriously, “Kurt and Courtney,” he seemed unconcerned with the status quo (or possibly lawsuits), making inflammatory claims and taking part in gleeful provocation, a welcome change of pace from the overtly mannered realm of current documentary filmmaking. Which makes “Sarah Palin: You Betcha!,” his new film about America’s one-time potential Vice President and former Governor of Alaska, so odd – it’s boring, toothless, and genial. Anyone (like me) smacking their gums in anticipation of...

    Tom Everett Scott To Hook Up With Marisa Tomei In 'Us & Them' With Billy Crystal & Bette Midler

    It has been nearly a decade since funnyman Billy Crystal has appeared on screen in a movie (and we'll overlook his cameo in "The Tooth Fairy"), seemingly perfectly content to just do voice work ("Cars," "Howl's Moving Castle") or appear in viral videos. But there is only so long you can keep somebody like Crystal away from a movie set. He's set to cameo in "The Muppets" later this year, he apparently pops up in Jonas Åkerlund's "Small Apartments" and, of course, he'll be bringing Mike Wazowski back to life in "Monsters University." But his first big starring role since "Analyze That" will be in "Us & Them" with Bette Midler and Bailee Madison...
