    Watch: Four Very Slightly Different Teaser Trailers For Pixar's 'Monsters University'

    We'd hoped that last year's "Cars 2" was something of a blip on the Pixar track record. A disappointing film, to be sure, made to keep the merchandising behemoth alive (and it doesn't hurt that John Lasseter is an auto-nut), but we figured the studio's near-impeccable ...

    SXSW '12 Review: 'Small Apartments' Is An Awkward, Entirely Unsatisfying Mixture Of Sweetness And Filth

    Swedish filmmaker Jonas Åkerlund used to be the kind of director whose every move was worth following. He started out building buzz for his career by making controversial music videos, helming the sensational, barely-seen "Smack My Bitch Up" clip for Prodigy and, way more successfully, the "Ray of L...

    Academy Plays It Completely Safe, Billy Crystal Is Back To Host The Oscars

    Well, that didn't take long. Less than 48 hours after Brett Ratner "banged" his way out of producing the Oscars, with host Eddie Murphy following suit, Brian Grazer has stepped in to take control and, together with the Academy, they've invested in the most safe, parent-friendly man...

    There were Facebook movements begging for the Muppets or Neil Patrick Harris, but Twitter told us first that the Academy has gone back to square one.

    Bette Midler & Bailee Madison Join Billy Crystal for ‘Us & Them’

    Director Andy Fickman isn’t known for his deft skills at directing comedy, as the Amanda Bynes vehicle “She’s the Man” and last year’s already forgotten “You Again” bear out, but his next film “Us & Them” (which, we suppose completes an unofficial trilogy of films with bland, pronoun-heavy titles) can’t be knocked for lacking talent. It already boasts Billy Crystal returning from the wilderness after “Analyze That,” and now, Variety reports that Bette Midler -- absent from our screens since the nonsensical remake of George Cukor’s “The Women” committed gynocide at the box-office in 2008 worse than Charlotte Gainsbourg in “Antichrist” -- and p...

    '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...
