    In Theaters: 'The Words' May Be 'Branded' In The 'Cold Light Of Day,' So 'Keep The Lights On' For 'Beauty Is Embarrassing' And 'Hello I Must Be Going'

    As we transition into the unofficial start of autumn, the films take on a similarly seasonal tone, ranging from somber to bleak.

    New Images Of Bradley Cooper & Zoe Saldana In 'The Words'

    "The Words" might not be the sexiest movie title in history, but what it lacks in name appeal, the film makes up for in casting. Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana lead a cast that also includes Olivia Wilde, Jeremy Irons, Dennis Quaid, J.K. Simmons, Ben Barnes and Nora Arzeneder. Not bad, rig...

    While it sounds decent on paper what with the cast and all,  Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana and Olivia Wilde, we can't say we're entirely convinced of this new trailer for "The Words." It probably doesn't help that we didn't give this one a particularly enthusi...
