    We're in the last leg of the winter holidays and it shows at the box office with strong holdovers leading the pack.

    Review Roundup: Waiting Five Years Didn't Save Samurai Epic '47 Ronin'

    Apparently, a five-year production schedule, cycles of reshoots and a yearlong theatrical delay couldn't save the 3-D martial arts action film "47 Ronin" starring Keanu Reeves, a virtual absentee from the big screen these last few years.

    A ballooning budget, reshoots, editing room wrangles and more have long marked "47 Ronin" as a cinematic poison apple. And certainly, with a weak opening earlier this month in Japan, where the story is common and has been retold numerous times, it seemed the writing on the wall. But was the negative...

    Watch: 3 Clips, Animated Prequel & Featurette For '47 Ronin' Starring Keanu Reeves

    “47 Ronin” is a thing that is happening, which, believe you me, is saying something given how long it's been delayed (check out last month's set visit report for more on the chaos of bringing Keanu Reeves' sometime passion project to cinema screens). But made it now is, and released it shall be, on ...

    Oscars: It's 'Hobbit' Vs. "Hustle' Vs. 'Slave' Vs. 'Gatsby' In Production & Costume Design Races

    The Coen Brothers' glorious "Inside Llewyn Davis" hits theaters at long last this week and while its award prospects in general are somewhat on the tightrope, some of its better chances lie in the design categories: the beautifully realized world of early 1960s New York has a good chance of nominati...

    Watch: Magic & Monsters In 2 Clips From '47 Ronin'

    With production first beginning in 2011, it’s an understatement to say that Carl Rinsch’s 3D samurai epic “47 Ronin” is a long time coming. A little over a month separates us from the Keanu Reeves-starring film, and to ease the wait, Universal Pictures has released two new clips from the film.

    Interview: Keanu Reeves Talks 'Man Of Tai Chi' '47 Ronin'

    To put it bluntly, "Man of Tai Chi" kicks all kinds of ass. The film follows the Faustian rise and fall of Tiger Chen (the actor's name and also the character's name), who gets involved in a deadly underground fighting ring led by a wonderfully over-the-top villain named Donaka Mark. Keanu Reeves, w...
