    Walloping Action In Soderbergh's Haywire, Plus Fassbender And McGregor

    When a man is contracted to kill kickass undercover agent Mallory Kane, he says with mild curiosity, “I’ve never done a woman before,” and gets the perfect deadpan reply: “You shouldn’t think of her as being a woman. That would be mistake.” That doesn’t...

    Steve Carell To Star In 'Moneyball' Director Bennett Miller's Next Film 'Foxcatcher'

    First, we just need to get something off our chest. It's an absolute crime that with his run on the "The Office" now over, six-time Emmy nominee Steve Carell didn't win one time for his fantastic turn as the Michael Scott. More than just a bumbling boss, Carell found real depth and heart in Michael Scott that allowed the character to flourish over seven seasons. Okay, mini rant over. Regardless of industry accolades, Carell has used his sitcom success to spread his wings as a dramatic actor in fare like "Dan In Real Life" and "Crazy Stupid Love," however, his greatest challenge as an actor will find him paired up with "Capote" and "Moneyball"...

    Mychael Danna's Rousing 'Moneyball' Score Feat. This Will Destroy You & A Lenka Song Is A Big Winner

    Discussing soundtracks, especially scores can be, in some instances, sort of dull. It's easy to confabulate when a pop or rock figure like Trent Reznor ("The Social Network"), Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead ("There Will Be Blood") or Karen O & The Kids ("Where The Wild Things Are"), but aside from Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, Clint Mansell, Jon Brion and maybe John Murphy known for his great collaborations with Danny Boyle, there are very few "superstar" composers that mainstream audiences appreciate or generally want to read about. For example, Alberto Iglesias (known for his work with Pedro Almodovar) is probably, aside from Alexander Desplat, ...

    TIFF '11 Review: Numbers Don't Lie In 'Moneyball' That Swings For The Fences & Hits A Triple

    America's greatest pastime hasn't been in great shape lately. Plagued by drug scandals and general disenchantment with the sport that pays astronomical prices for out-of-shape guys to hit a ball four hundred feet or so, it seems the magic of the ol' ballgame seems to have dissipated. This writer once religiously followed the sport, could rattle off batting lineups, bullpen rosters and second string second basemen at a moment's notice. But of late, we haven't had much reason to pay attention other than casually stopping in on games while flipping through channels. And while "Moneyball" won't get us picking up the daily sports section again, Be...

    Mychael Danna Scoring 'Moneyball' & 'Life Of Pi'

    Not every movie can star Robert Downey Jr or Johnny Depp; the most in-demand talents only have a certain amount of time, and sometimes you just have to go with a Channing Tatum or Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. And the same thing is true across all aspects of film production; Roger Deakins can't lens every f...

    Universal And Sony Find New Fall 2011 Dates For 'The Thing' And 'Moneyball'

    Running a studio is a lot like playing chess. You really have to know how to utilize your pieces and position them for success, but also be aware of what the opposition is up to. Sometimes you have to sacrifice a pawn in order to make a bigger score, and sometimes gambles don't pay off. As such, peo...
