    Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal In Surprising 'Prisoners'

    Denis Villeneuve's Prisoners sounds cookie-cutter conventional, and in fact there is nothing fresh in the concept: two little girls are abducted, and the father of one of them goes after a suspect the police have released. The clock is ticking ... and other cliches we've heard way too many times...

    In Theaters: 'Madea' Takes On 'Water For Elephants' & African Cats' At Your Multiplex This Weekend

    Do you hear that? Do you? That's the sound of millions of Google Alerts pinging into the inboxes of the members of Team Edward everywhere. The tenacious and ornery breed of fan that draws their life force from the chiseled cheekbones and tousled locks of Robert Pattinson ironically seem to have the famous vampire in a compromising position: sucking him dry so that they may live to type another heated comment defending their loved one on a snarky blog post reporting a bit of casting news. Did y'all read that Vanity Fair profile? Kinda depressing, no? Think about what you are doing to him, tweens and middle-aged women! This weekend, we'll see i...

Night Shyamalan (though we can't blame you for his last three disasters) and consistently do everything you can to obliterate affection for anything that precedes you. Well, we're not going to let yo...

    Watch: Trailer For Canada's Oscar Nominated 'Incendies'

    It seems every year at the Oscars, the Best Foreign Film category is one that generally confounds Joe Public. Most of the films that end up being nominated only play the festival circuit or get runs in specialty theaters in big cities on the coasts, and sometimes, like last year's winner "The Secret In Their Eyes," it doesn't hit theaters until well after the ceremonies are over. Either way, it's a tough road for distributors repping those films because it's a tough sell no matter what you do. This year, Sony Pictures Classics has got a 2 in 5 shot at taking home the gold as they have both Susanne Bier's Golden Globe-winning "In A Better Worl...
