    Casting anybody in the roles of the legendary Joni Mitchell and Carole King was always going to be a difficult task, but these choices -- well, one in particular -- will be sure to draw some interesting scrutiny and controversy.

    WB Moves Forward With 'Lobo' With 'Journey 2' Director Brad Peyton

    The cinematic Marvel-DC "arms race" is a bit of an illusion, since Marvel has leased their properties to many other studios, and DC's characters all exist underneath the Warner Bros. banner. Still, WB is smart enough to know that superheroes sell right now, and with the departure of "Harry Potter," ...

    'Crazy Stupid Love' Helmers Glenn Ficarra & John Requa Want Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone To Reunite For Grifter Comedy 'Focus'

    Pairing up hot young things Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in a movie together is a no brainer, and Warner Bros. has done it twice already, first with last summer's hit comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love" and then in the upcoming (and now undated) "Gangster Squad." And if 'Crazy...

    Character Actor Titus Welliver Heads To Gus Van Sant's 'The Promised Land'

    Recognize that face, but don't know his name? Don't worry, this actor is definitely one of those "hey, it's that guy" dudes. A television regular having featured on shows such as "Deadwood," "Sons Of Anarchy" and "Lost," character actor T...

    Watch: Excellent Spanish Trailer For Tsunami-Inflicted Disaster Film 'The Impossible' Starring Ewan McGregor & Naomi Watts

    One of the best horror-esque ghost story films of the previous decade was Juan Antonio Bayona's "The Orphanage," likely because it was much more than your average, spooks-in-the-attic horror, and was a rich and emotionally textured drama just as much as it was a classic ghost...

    Guy Pearce To Play Aldrich Killian In 'Iron Man 3'

    It seems Guy Pearce is liking this whole blockbuster thing. While "Lockout" didn't quite make waves at the box office (okay, it barely made a splash) it was clear he had a ball of a time as the wisecracking lead, but now he's joining an established franchise in a role that won...

    Michael Pitt To Produce & Star In Adaptation Of Hobo Autobiography 'You Can't Win'

    Remember Michael Pitt's big screen career? No? Well, okay, we forgive you. It seems like a distant memory since we last saw him in "Silk" and "Funny Games U.S.," and that's kinda because it really was a long time ago. A whole five years in fact. Since then Pitt has only a...

    Watch: New 'Men In Black 3' Footage Featured In The Otherwise Intolerable Video For Pitbull's "Back In Time"

    Since "Men In Black 3" is the continuation of a franchise that started in the '90s, it's no surprise that everything about the movie so far has felt ripped right out the decade. But perhaps no aspect has been more dated (or embarrassing) than the theme song by Pitbull. Continuing a...

    Director Xavier Dolan Says He's Disappointed 'Laurence Anyways' Won't Be In Competition, But Still Happy To Be Headed To Cannes

    While yesterday brought good news to directors, actors, productions and distributors with the Cannes Film Festival unveiling their slate, there is one filmmaker who was a bit prickled at first. Montreal's Xavier Dolan. The 23-year-old is no stranger to the south of France, winning acclaim for hi...
