    Emily Browning To Star In Catherine Hardwicke's Thriller 'Plush'

    We're sure Catherine Hardwicke and Evan Rachel Wood are still pals, but sometimes scheduling or a variety of other reasons keep two people from working together. Earlier this year it looked like the "Thirteen" star and director were going to reunite on "Plush," but alas, things don't seem to have wo...

    Malin Akerman To Play Blondie Singer Debbie Harry In 'CBGB'

    It seems Malin Akerman is impressing all the right people with her pipes. The actress will be showing the world her take on Foreigner's "I Want To Know What Love Is" in the upcoming "Rock Of Ages," and she's graduating from that '80s neon-colored musical to something a bit grimier, but no less music...

    Pablo Larrain's 'No' Starring Gael Garcia Bernal Takes Top Prize At Cannes Directors' Fortnight

    It has been one helluva week for Pablo Larrain. Easily one of the most buzzed-about movies on the Croisette -- and it wasn't even in the proper festival lineup, playing the Directors' Fortnight instead -- the biggest question being asked among those who saw and fell in love with "No" was how the Can...

    Watch: Brad Pitt Explains Why The Movie Is Called 'Killing Them Softly' In New Clip From The Film

    The economy, murder, drugs and an election all come to a rolling boil in Andrew Dominik's brilliant "Killing Them Softly," the picture that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this week (read our review) and knocked back viewers who were expecting just your standard, run-of-the-mill crime thriller...

    Take A Look At USPS Stamps For Frank Capra, Billy Wilder, John Ford & John Huston

    Considering the art of letter-writing and the ritual of walking to the mailbox are becoming lost to the digital age (single tear), it's kinda cute that the United States Postal Service keeps making special new stamps, but honestly, we'd buy these and frame 'em.

    Don Cheadle Taking Miles Davis Project To Broadway w/ Kevin Navayne Starring; Film To Follow

    Whoa! Well... maybe it's not such a surprise actually; I remember Jesse L. Martin saying that his Marvin Gaye film project might actually end up on stage before it becomes a film, given all the difficulties the project has faced in getting financed and produced. So it looks like Don Cheadle...

    New Pics Of Blake Lively, Taylor Kitsch & Aaron Johnson In Oliver Stone's 'Savages' Plus TV Spot With Fresh Footage

    It's two down and one to go for Taylor Kitsch whose attempt to leap from "Friday Night Lights" to blockbuster superstardom has been wobbly at best. Both "John Carter" and "Battleship" are underperforming, didn't exactly show off his acting skills in the best light (though ladies got more than an eye...

    The Fire Rises: New Banners From 'The Dark Knight Rises' Hint At The Epic War That Hits Gotham

    Sick of "The Dark Knight Rises" and its relatively secret campaign? At least compared to say, Fox's "Prometheus," which seemingly has revealed every secret it has? (Probably not, but it sure feels that way). Well, you shouldn't be. Trust In Nolan (someone should make a T-shirt of that and give me so...
