    In Theaters: 'Little Fockers,' 'True Grit,' 'Gulliver's Travels'

    There are plenty of options for those of you seeking refuge in a dark movie theater from family fights, creepy uncles and the increasingly annoying and endless loop of Christmas carols in every mall across America. But a word of advice? If it has a big budget, stay the hell away. A number of options are hitting multiplexes this week, a couple boasting A-list names as mistletoe to get into your wallet, but they probably aren't worth your time. Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro return for "Little Fockers" which, if the trailers have been anything to go by, is a penis-stabbing comedy of some kind. Meanwhile, Jack Black gets supersized in "Gulliver'...

    Review: 'The Illusionist' Is A Moving, Magical Animated Feast

    "The Illusionist" has an interesting history, and it seems downright magical that it made it to the cinemas at all. The project originated as a script by French comedy master Jacques Tati, completed with his writing partner Henri Marquet shortly before Tati would tackle his large-scale comedy master...

    Soundtrack For 'Gnomeo & Juliet' Is Basically An Elton John Greatest Hits Collection

    One of the real trials for parents forced to drag their tiny progeny to the multiplex to see a film is sitting through a kid's pic with irritating songs sung by irritating characters. And while we have yet to weigh in on Disney's animated garden gnome film "Gnomeo & Juliet," at least parents won't h...

    Terry Gilliam To Godfather Retro, Sci-Fi Fantasy '1884'

    The hot new job title to have around Hollywood is "Creative Godfather." Christopher Nolan is the most prominent name to have the mantle, as he overlooks Zack Snyder's upcoming "Superman: Man of Steel" but another helmer has quickly taken a shine to the new moniker.

    Weekend Box Office: 'Tron' Saves Face, 'How Do You Know' Doesn't Get To Know Anyone

    Are you ready for another “Avatar” experience? No? Well, okay, guess that’s fine. “Tron: Legacy” opened to the same midnight numbers as the James Cameron epic, but failed to equal that film’s general attendance or gross in its first weekend. 'Tron' has been pushed for a couple of years now as a near...

    In Theaters: 'Tron: Legacy,' 'How Do You Know,' 'Yogi Bear,' 'Rabbit Hole'

    Hollywood lays out the red carpet for "Tron: Legacy" this week, because there's surprisingly little competition for the 3D spectacle this high-season almost holiday weekend. Sure, there's something for the kids with (shudder) "Yogi Bear" and something for the ladies with "How Do You Know," but 'Tron' is bringing some of that summer blockbuster swagger to winter. Maybe studio execs assume everyone's going to be spending those hard earned bucks on gifts or warm and toasty yuletide libations. At any rate, despite the rather slim pickins there's a little something for everyone at the multiplex, and even some awards-season contenders for those of ...

    Watch: Trailer For 'Rango' Promises Loopy, Far Out Fun

    We're pretty sure that this one will require at least one viewing under the influence of certain herbs and plants, but the full length trailer for Paramount's "Rango" has arrived and it looks like a total mindfuck. In a good way.

    Watch: Alternate Ending For 'Yogi Bear' Redoes 'Assassination of Jesse James,' Not For Kids

    Either the filmmakers behind the upcoming "Yogi Bear" have a wickedly morose sense of humor or someone is showing off his considerable animation skills, but a viral clip of sorts has hit the web of a (probably fake) alternate ending to the forthcoming animated picture.

    DreamWorks Animation Announces New Film 'Me And My Shadow,' Will Hit Theaters In March 2013

    Even though DreamWorks Animation honcho Jeffrey Katzenberg is content to keep the money train rolling on the studio's tried and true franchise (there are plans for half a dozen "Kung Fu Panda" movies), the studio will get to some more original content. Eventually.
