    Review: 'Million Dollar Arm' With Jon Hamm, Lake Bell, Alan Arkin & Bill Paxton

    In terms of in-house branding, the "Disney sports movie" has almost as much instantly recognizable cachet as something like their animated princess movies or Marvel superhero flicks.

The film’s narrative echoes the problem its st...

    Shirley Maclaine, Alan Arkin & Vera Farmiga Are 'The Locals' In Italian/Jewish Romeo & Juliet Riff

    For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo. It's not surprising that William Shakespeare's tale of star-crossed lovers has provided the inspiration for dozens of films over the years, but there seems to be something in the water at the moment in particular: Disney had a surprise hit at the start of the year with their (very loose) animated take, "Gnomeo & Juliet," while Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth are gearing up for a more faithful version, while Keira Knightley and Lily Collins are supposedly competing for the lead in "Rosaline," which will focus on the titular girl, who Romeo is in love with before he gets a...

    'The Muppets' Add Alan Arkin, Billy Crystal, JCVD To Loaded Cast

    Hollywood casting can be like musical chairs. So when people bemoan how certain actors don't take quality projects, or how others don't work that often, it's usually just a case that they haven't managed to stay in the public eye. Which probably benefits Disney's "The Muppets" since a cavalcade of s...
