    Review: Lovely And Deceptively Complex 'Philomena' Starring Judi Dench & Steve Coogan

    The term "Oscar bait" is one that, unfortunately, gets bandied about a lot this time of year. At worst, it's used to refer to every faintly serious-minded film released between July and December. At best, it describes a very particular kind of middlebrow drama that seems to have been created from th...

    Dustin Hoffman & Steve Buscemi Join Adam Sandler's 'The Cobbler' & More Casting Updates

    All the casting news that's fit to print! We reported last week on Dan Stevens attaching himself to the newest of Adam Sandler's periodic serious, grown-up movies (uh, not to be confused with his “Grown Ups” movies); this one's called "The Cobbler" and follows a cobbler (natch) who steps into his cl...

    Not Too Sappy, Not Too Harsh: Dench and Coogan in 'Philomena'

    If you're going to tell a heart-warming story about a sweet, wronged little old lady, it helps -- even if she is played by Judi Dench -- to have a hard-nosed, mordantly witty, cynical journliast along to offset the sugar quotient.

    First Look At Ben Foster As Lance Armstrong In Biopic That Still Needs A Title, Suggestions?

    The last movie we saw about cycling was "Premium Rush," so the limited genre that it already is, there's really has nowhere to go but up. We certainly won't argue with a movie led by the excellent Ben Foster, particularly if he's playing disgraced former American hero Lance Armstrong.

    Chris O’Dowd, Guillaume Canet & Jesse Plemons Join Stephen Fears' Lance Armstrong Biopic With Ben Foster

    Sorry, J.J. Abrams and Scott Z. Burns and Jay Roach, while you guys might be cooking up your films about disgraced cyclist and former American hero Lance Armstrong, Stephen Frears has beaten you to the front of the pack. Earlier this year he lined up Ben Foster to play the lead in his film, and now ...

    Review: 'Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight' Floats But Doesn't Quite Sting

    Capturing the magnetic, larger than life personality of Muhammad Ali has been something only a few actors have tried over the years, including Will Smith, Darius McCrary and Terrence Howard. And while the boxing legend and sports world superstar can be imitated, he simply can't be duplicated. So cal...

    Watch: New Trailer For TIFF People's Choice Award Runner-Up 'Philomena' Starring Judi Dench & Steve Coogan

    When Steve McQueen's "12 Years A Slave" won the Toronto International Film Festival People's Choice Award, we were slightly surprised—given that the prize generally tends to lean toward more crowd-pleasing movies—but we weren't surprised to see Stephen Frears' "Philomena" take one of the runner-up s...
