    Jeff Nichols Talks About His Trust In Sony Pictures Classics & 'Take Shelter''s Memorable Ending

    And More From The Cast & Filmmaker Of The Apocalyptic DramaLady luck is currently showing Arkansas filmmaker Jeff Nichols her pearly whites. Though his strong debut feature "Shotgun Stories" took years to complete and be unleashed into the world, his sophomore effort "Take Shelter" was picked up by Sony Pictures Classics before they even saw a cut. In addition to that, its two principal players, Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain, are having a banner year and are quickly rising to household name-status. To top it all off, the filmmaker is already lensing his next feature, "Mud," in addition to writing yet another movie. Needless to say, Nic...

    Review: Gus Van Sant's 'Restless' A Sappy Misfire From A Director Capable Of So Much More

    Gus Van Sant has long been fascinated by young people – the way they interact with each other, the way they move, the way they emote, and, most importantly, the way they die (or at the very least face their mortality head-on – you could even lump his interesting, if aimless, "Psycho" remake in there).

    'Midnight In Paris' To Get Wide Re-Release On August 26th: The First Step In Sony's Oscar Strategy?

    Plus Third 'Diary Of A Wimpy Kid' Film Hits On August 3rd, 2012 A new Woody Allen film tends to come with lowered expectations these days. Knocking one out one a year, as he does, means there's rarely fevered excitement for the films: instead, mild curiosity as to who he's cast this time out, the inevitable scouring of reviews to see which critics have called it "a return to form," and keeping your fingers crossed that it's at least better than "Cassandra's Dream." So the surprise success of "Midnight In Paris" has become one of the biggest stories of the year: the film picked up rave reviews when it bowed at Cannes, and has now taken $50 mil...
