    Steve Carell & Keira Knightley Will Find Love At 'The End Of The World'

    As most movies -- and sometimes real life -- will tell you, love is all about timing. Those infinitesimal choices we make that lead us to running into someone we'll spend the rest of our life or just one night. And sometimes, the timing is just off. You're got a job in another city, or they're gradu...

    In a Better World - directed by Susanne Bier

    We spend so much time talking about how men are hired to direct women's stories (because men are hired to direct more movies in general) but much less time taking about how women have a much harder time getting hired to direct stories about men.

    Drew Pearce Will Write Script For 'Iron Man 3,' Not Shane Black

    Talk about taking the one element nearly every comic fan otherwise was excited about, and tossing it out the window. When Shane Black was hired on direct "Iron Man 3," fans hoped that Marvel, known for making their presence heavily felt in every step of way, would at least concede to let the practically legendary writer -- “Lethal Weapon” and “The Last Boy Scout” rank in his credits -- shape the script. He's already directed Robert Downey Jr. in "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang," a comeback vehicle for both of them, so it seemed like an no brainer. And earlier this month, Black told an audience at the Omaha Film Festival that he would be writing the scr...

    Review: 'Hop' Is Like Opening An Easter Egg And Finding Nothing Inside

    "Hop," the new animation/live action hybrid from the folks that brought us this past summer's surprise smash "Despicable Me," comes with a premise so ingeniously prepackaged that you'll wonder why nobody had come up with it before.

    Just last week, Chloe Moretz hinted via Twitter that she'd landed a role in a big, huge upcoming film with an incredibly famous director.

    Review: 'Cat Run' A Fizzy Soda Of Old School Action

    John Stockwell's movies as a director pop and fizzle like the sensation of opening a soda can. He's focused primarily, almost cynically, on the youth market, with films like "Blue Crush" and "Turistas" exploring the exoticism of sensual, almost exclusively American youthful exuberance. Unfortunately...

    Critic's Notebook: New Directors/New Films Shows Flawed Movies, For Good Reasons

At festivals large and small, the people responsible for the movies in their lineups smile at the podium and vouch for their choices, readily aware that the program's quality is anything but impeccable. However, New Directors/...
