    Review: Luc Besson's 'The Family' Starring Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer & Tommy Lee Jones

    The term “dark comedy” used to mean a film or program that dealt with laughs but also discomforting adult situations and themes. For most filmmakers today, that now serves as a green light to portray death and violence with as little consequence or moral dimension whatsoever, giving protagonists a c...

    "I Can't Wait To See How It Ends": New Teaser Trailer For Luc Besson's 'The Family' Starring Robert De Niro

    The Robert De Niro hit-to-miss ratio these days simply isn't very good. For every "Silver Linings Playbook," there are things like "The Big Wedding" and "Killing Season" (and that's just in 2013). On the one hand, we're kinda glad to see him working with a director of at least some weight in Luc Bes...

    Scarlett Johansson To Lead Luc Besson's Next Action Flick 'Lucy'

    Remember when Luc Besson said he was retiring? That was pretty funny (and short-lived). Dude has never been busier and is a mogul now, first and foremost, at the head of the very successful production house EuropaCorp.

    Connie Nielsen Joins Kevin Costner In McG's Untitled Thriller With Amber Heard & Hailee Steinfeld

    McG is like a classic timex watch. He takes a lickin', but keeps on tickin'. "This Means War" was routinely included in Worst Of 2012 lists (including ours), "Terminator Salvation" took a beating in 2009, and the rest of his career hasn't fared much better outsid...
