    Julianne Moore Gets Villainous Opposite Jeff Bridges In 'The Seventh Son'

    Alex Pettyfer Out Of Project Formerly Known As 'The Last Apprentice'Her co-star Annette Bening may have picked up the lion's share of the awards nominations, after the decision was made to push both actresses for lead, rather than supporting, but Julianne Moore really was excellent in "The Kids Are All Right," one of the very best performances in a career that isn't exactly starving for great turns. Not that Moore's resting on her laurels; she's averaged three films a year for the last decade, and she's got the Steve Carell/Ryan Gosling comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love" on the way later this year, along with the Robert De Niro drama "Another Bullshit Night in Suck City," and she recently signed to play Sarah Palin in HBO's "Game Change."

    Subtitles are Enemies, Foreign and Domestic: Why Every Good Film Should Be Released As-Is

    Should the "Critters"-like, Edgar Wright-produced English film "Attack the Block" be released in the U.S. with subtitles? This question was met with much debate late last week and through the weekend, as the film picked up an audience award at SXSW and continued to gain fans and positive reviews. Today's Film Blog Water Cooler quotes some of the points around the web and offers up my own subjective take on the issue.

    Is 'The Wolverine' Now Delayed Until 2013?

    Did Darren Aronofsky Bail On The Film Due To Lack Of Creative Control?The wind got knocked out of the sails of the comic community in a big way late last week as it was announced that Darren Aronofsky -- seen as the savior for the on-the-ropes spinoff franchise for Wolverine -- had left the project, which was gearing up to start shooting this spring/early summer. In a joint statement with 20th Century Fox, the director cited the lengthy shoot in Japan as the reason he was bowing out with Deadline initially hinting that custody issues with Rachel Weisz over their son played a role in his exit. However, a different tune is emerging.

    'The Hobbit' Begins Its 14-Month Shoot In New Zealand

    Well, ordinarily, a film beginning production is hardly a newsworthy event, but when it's "The Hobbit" some exceptions have to be made. Surviving the near collapse of its home MGM, Guillermo Del Toro leaving last year, union woes and Peter Jackson getting hospitalized in January with a perforated ulcer, at times, the problems around the film seemed unsurmountable. But unlike, say, "Men In Black 3" the new production start date has held and things are finally underway.

    First Look: Sexed Up Wonder Woman

    Here's the first picture of Adrianne Palicki as the crime fighting Wonder Woman. The costume looks like a Halloween costume. A little too much for me.

    Film Lovers Jackpot

    More classic cinema is available for free legally online than ever before. You can watch more film from any decade, than you could if you were living in the decade that they were made in. I just stumbled across another treasure trove, and now I now I need to start that age-enhancement process asap as I don't have the time available in my lifetime to watch all the great stuff that is out there, accessible by a simple keystroke.

    Cannes Fest Preview 2011: Opener Midnight in Paris, Jurors DeNiro and Gondry, and What Else?

    Cannes Fest Preview 2011: Opener Midnight in Paris, Jurors DeNiro and Gondry, and What Else?

    Woody Allen's latest, Midnight in Paris, which will open the 64th Cannes Film Fest May 11 with Inglourious Basterds star Melanie Laurent presiding over the opening ceremony, stars Owen Wilson, who graces this new Van Gogh-inspired poster without any of his fellow cast members, who include a blonde Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, Kathy Bates and Adrien Brody, not to mention French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. For the first time when the film opens on 400 screens in France on the same night, the Cannes Fest will supply theaters with a live stream of the opening ceremony.

    Weekend Box Office: Unfortunately, Bradley Cooper Is A Star As 'Limitless' Opens At Number One

    When your R-rated comedy does over a quarter of a billion domestically, it’s probably time to cash-in. And yet, the three stars involved in “The Hangover” have taken very different career turns between “Hangover” films. Ed Helms has found himself handicapped by not only being a “type” more than a real actor, but also having to return to NBC as a supporting actor on “The Office,” while planned collaborations with Judd Apatow and Steve Carrell never panned out. Zack Galifianakis has done the most with his newfound clout, starring in one bonafide $100 million grosser (“Due Date”), doing supporting work in high profile performers (“Dinner For Schmucks,” “Up In The Air"), and remaining visible with a number of television and indie film appearances.
