    Names That Command the Moviesphere: Cameron Talks Avatar Sequels, True Lies, Cleopatra

    Review: Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is Stone in Mainstream Studio Mode

    Like the 1987 film, this Wall Street installment is Oliver Stone in mainstream studio mode. Sure, his political slant on the financial crisis comes through loud and clear--the son of a Wall Street broker is preaching to the choir at this point--and he uses cigar-chomping alpha male Josh Brolin, who ...

    Stone Talks Wall Street Dysfunction and South of the Border Tour

    Fox conducted Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps interviews at the Hotel du Cap cabanas by the Mediterranean on a grey day with drizzle in the air. I have always enjoyed talking to Oliver Stone.
