    Confirmed: Trailer For 'The Tree Of Life' To Play In Front Of 'Black Swan' Opening This Weekend

    It's hard to believe after such a long wait, but Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" will hit theaters in about six months. Really. And while we probably won't see a "Tree Of Life" Tuesdays marketing campaign modeled after Disney's approach to "Tron: Legacy," we won't have to wait too long to get o...

    Which Animated Short Could Possibly Beat Pixar's "Day & Night" for the Oscar?

    This week the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced the shortlist for the two short subject categories, and obviously Pixar is a strong contender once again for the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film with its relatively traditional-looking "Day & Night." If you're a good moviegoer you saw this ahead of "Toy Story 3," and while I don't think the feature had to be seen in 3D, the short is best appreciated in the format. In fact, it might be the best use of 3D I'd ever seen at the time (now Herzog's "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" might have that honor). It's pretty much a given that it will be one of the five nominees announced on Janu...

    True Grit Early Review: Coens Deliver PG-13 Classic Western, Bridges Owns Cogburn

    Finally, the last anticipated Oscar contender has been screened and Wednesday, reviewed. The question is whether expectations of the Coens' True Grit have been overblown. Reaction at one New York screening was mixed. It's not surprising; pure westerns do not play in some quarters. Younger moviegoers...

    Watch: Trailer For Michael Rapaport's (Really) Documentary About A Tribe Called Quest

    It's hard to quantify just how important A Tribe Called Quest is to hip-hop music, but the group stood apart from the harder edged gangsta rap of their contemporaries. The group were a singular act among their peers and, more anecdotally, if you need to liven up a party, "Can I Kick It?" is guarante...

    Jez Butterworth To Write Untitled Feature About The Making Of The Clash's 'London Calling'

    Call It 'Titans Of The Clash.' We Dare YouIt's only a couple of weeks since we were last extolling our love of seminal punk band The Clash, so we'll spare you the full shtick: in short, they're certainly the greatest of the punk bands, and possibly the single greatest band in the history of rock and roll. It seems that filmmakers have just cottoned on to that fact -- a few weeks back it was announced that Paul Viragh, writer of the terrible Ian Dury biopic "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll," was penning "Joe Public," about the band's frontman Joe Strummer. Now, word has emerged of a rival project, which threatens to see the other one consigned to h...
