    Review: Marvel's 'The Avengers' Is Immensely Satisfying, Entirely Thrilling & Possibly The Best Superhero Movie Yet

    The first scene of " The Avengers" is not very good. Deep in a secret S.H.I.E.L.D. base, scientist Eric Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard) is conducting experiments on The Tesseract, the blue cube that powered the Red Skull's experiments in "Captain America." Expriments that, unfortunately, bring to earth L...

    Watch: Hulk Smash, Downey Jr. Wisecrack In Full Trailer For Marvel's 'The Avengers'

    Last summer saw a fairly major clash of the superheroes, with four movies featuring men in tights battling it out for box office supremacy. Marvel's duo of "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" won out over "X-Men First Class" and "Green Lantern," but as it turns out, it was all just a war...

    New Trailer, Poster for '21 Jump Street,' Plus German 'Avengers' Trailer

    If there's one potentially awful big screen remake of a classic (maybe the word classic should have been in ironic quotes) that we're looking forward to, it's "21 Jump Street." There's really no reason this thing should work - it's a comedic take on a dramatic series, w...

    Gwyneth Paltrow Joins Mark Ruffalo & Tim Robbins 'Kids Are All Right' Writer's 'Thanks For Sharing'

    Stuart Blumberg's career really took off last year. While the screenwriter did have good credits to his name (the terminally underrated teen comedy “The Girl Next Door,” and "Keeping the Faith," starring his good friend Edward Norton), he wasn't exactly a household name. By the end of the year, tha...

    Mark Ruffalo & Amanda Seyfried Join Increasingly-Awesome 'Now You See Me'

    It looks like magicians are coming back into fashion again. Back in 2007 Christopher Nolan and Neil Burger ("Limitless") had competing magician films in "The Prestige" and "The Illusionist" (though for our money Nolan's film is far and away the victor there) and more recently Darren Aronofsky signed on to direct the pilot for HBO's "Hobgoblin," about a group of magicians and con men fighting Hitler in WWII. Back in February we broke the news that there would be another film joining the ranks, this one a heist-thriller from "The Transporter" director Louis Leterrier. The film follows a crack FBI squad in a game of cat-and-mouse against a super...
