    Alejandro González Iñárritu Says The Somber 'Biutiful' Is Actually About "Life"

    When "Biutiful," Alejandro González Iñárritu's searing and deeply-moving (and, granted, at times painfully difficult-to-watch) new film debuted at Cannes this past summer, it was almost universally cut down to size. People said it was too bleak, too hopeless, and no matter how stellar and immersive a performance lead Javier Bardem provided -- and, trust us, it's spectacular; the film's one element that was unanimously praised -- most critics couldn't get behind it (Bardem would go on to win the Best Actor prize in Cannes). Maybe it was the heat stroke, the film festival nature of cramming in four or five films a day, or the looking-for-the-ne...

    'The Last Exorcism' Director Daniel Stamm To Remake 'Martyrs'

    For literally no reason whatsoever, apparently America will have its own remake of the French horror picture "Martyrs." The Pascal Laugier horror picture is part of France's upswing in stomach-turning horror pictures of late, possibly due to the racial unrest of the last decade and regional tensions...

    We Can't Wait To Hear David Fincher's "I Don't Care" ResponseNiels Arden Oplev is not too happy with Hollywood, for entirely predictable reasons. The director behind "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" doesn't think much of the bean counters in Hollywood doing their own version of the story, and he ca...

    In Theaters: 'Saw 3D,' ' The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest,' 'Welcome to the Rileys'

    With only one film opening wide this weekend, this is one of the year's slowest for new releases. Halloween is usually the calm before the storm of big holiday titles making their way into theaters. Business should be fairly strong following last week's "Paranormal Activity 2" opening and the higher ticket prices for "Saw 3D" should help it reclaim the number one spot after going head-to-head and losing to the first "Paranormal Activity" last year. In limited release this week, your options include the final installment in the Swedish film adaptions of Stieg Larsson's "Millenium" trilogy "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest," the dark drama...

Through three Stieg Larsson-inspired adventures, you’ve jumped, screamed, sexed and hacked your way into filmgoers’ imaginations, even if they were only art house patrons.
