    Watch: Robert Downey Jr. Needs To Save Robert Duvall In 2 New Trailers For 'The Judge'

    The phrase "they don't make 'em like this anymore" can be taken two ways. When a movie works as an effective throwback to a style in which Hollywood used to excel, it can be a welcome pleasure.

    David Dobkin To Helm Hugh 'Hefner' Biopic While Paul Feig Lines Up Another Comedy

Kicking off the summer was the box office smash “Bri...
