    Lovely New Photos Of The Entire Cast Of 'Anna Karenina'

    Now in cinemas in the U.K., and having already rolled its way through TIFF, Joe Wright's sumptuous "Anna Karenina" hasn't quite taken off as an awards season contender. While many admire the picture, it hasn't garnered full on fervor (though we really dig it), but one thing most people can agree on is that it looks fantastic. And not only that, Wright has staged this thing beautifully with some breathtaking sequences -- aided by the decision to shoot the picture almost like a stage production -- adding to the visual fireworks on display. There are still a couple of months before it lands stateside, but a host of new images are here to give you the best look at the movie yet.

    Eddie Murphy makes things happen!  In the ten months since he stated that he was trying to produce a television show of the hit Franchise Beverly Hills Cop in which he originally starred, the show has become a reality, finding its home at CBS.  I know this wasn't likely a hard sell - we are talking about a well known franchise that grossed over $735 Million dollars.  Add to that Murphy, who hasn't been on television since his debut on Saturday Night Live, will appear in a few special episodes in the first season.  Yes, I am aware he voiced a character on the animated series The PJ's, but I am talking about in front of the camera.

    'The Avengers 2' Will Add One Or Two New Characters; James Gunn Will Rewrite 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Script

    With "The Avengers" headed to home video next week, Marvel Phase One now fades into the sunset, and Phase Two is already underway with "Iron Man 3" in front of cameras. And with a full slate over the next few years, under the stewardship of Joss Whedon, with "Thor: The Dark World," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Guardians Of The Galaxy" also on the way all leading towards "The Avengers 2," it's no surprise that the superhero roster is going to get bigger.

    Exclusive: Clip From Indie Drama 'Least Among Saints' Featuring Martin Papazian, Charles S. Dutton, Laura San Giacomo & More

    While Martin Papazian may not be a household name yet, he's quietly been building up a resume that includes stints on "Supernatural," "Dexter" and "24" with an appearance in this summer's "The Amazing Spider-Man" as well. But sometimes if you want to get a meaty, leading role you have to make the magic happen yourself, and that's just what he's done as writer, director and star of his feature helming debut "Least Among Saints."

    DVD Review: Chris Stokes 'Battlefield America' Teaches Predictable But Much Needed Lessons

    At the start of “Battlefield America,” we see young, bold, and tough kids dancing at an underground dance battle. Think “You Got Serve” meets Disney’s “Ant farm”. I’ve never seen such talented young dancers dance. The opening scene gives way to a lot of great energy, but it resembles more of a music video, than that of an opening scene to a film.
