    Interview: 'A Single Shot' Star Sam Rockwell Talks His Favorite Genre Films, Marvel Movies, Duncan Jones' 'Mute' & More

    Sam Rockwell is one of those actors whose mere presence in a movie can elicit excitement for a project that could have otherwise easily been written off. No matter what he's in – if it's big budget nonsense like "Charlie's Angels" or something like Duncan Jones' moody, micro-budget "Moon" – Rockwell...

    15 Comic-Con Movies And How They Performed In The Real World

    This weekend the rather seismic cultural force known as San Diego Comic-Con kicks off with every conceivable bell and whistle attached. Formerly just a huge comic convention, in the last seven to eight years Comic-Con has ridden the current of the geeky zeitgeist and grown in importance and magnitud...

    2011 By The Numbers: The Year In Box-Office Flops

    No one likes to celebrate flops. No, really. OK, maybe when an arrogant, mouthy producer or star delivers a turd that had it coming, or some awful franchise finally stumbles, but especially in the latter case, when does that ever happen?

    In Theaters: 'Cowboys & Aliens' & 'Smurfs,' Oh My!

    Listen, I know what you expect from me. After last week's showing, you're expecting me to wax poetic about Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling and all the man beauty at the box office. Nope. What Chris Evans and I have is special and beautiful and I will not sully it with that cad, Ryan. I will leave that salivating to the male portion of the Playlist, as Mr. Gosling is the designated man crush. I don't need to build him up anymore than the rest of these dudes have. He's a great actor with a wonderful sense of personal style. THE END. All I will say about Mr. Craig is that I hope his bum is insured by Lloyd's of London for as much...

    Cowboys & Aliens: movie review

    As its title indicates, this is a strange cross of movie genres, and lest any viewers get antsy, it doesn’t allow much time to pass before we first encounter UFOs in the Old West. The film takes its time unraveling the rest of the story, leading us along a trail with no clear destination in sight, a...

    The Essentials: The 5 Best Harrison Ford Performances

    For a time in the 1980s and 1990s, Harrison Ford was untouchable, and basically the biggest movie star in the world. He'd cropped up in bits and pieces in the 1970s (most notably small roles in "American Graffiti" and "The Conversation,") but Han Solo turned him into an instant matinee screen idol: ...

    Review: ‘Cowboys & Aliens’ Brings The Bad-Ass, But Falls Short On The Mash-Up

    It was only about 15 years ago that Jon Favreau first arrived on the scene as the hipster indie film festival darling of “Swingers” fame. After sharing the screen with Vince Vaughn in one more flick and being quickly relegated to sidekick roles, Favs decided it was time to step behind the camera. But it wasn’t until the actor/director fully came to terms with his closet geek that he came into his own in Hollywood. Five years ago, newly skinny and holding a canister of film (we guess it would be a disc of data these days, but that just doesn’t sound as romantic) he came to Comic-Con to show off “Iron Man.” Fans were eager, though understandabl...

    Watch: New Clip From 'Cowboys & Aliens' Shows Off Harry Gregson-Williams' Old School Score

    So far, so good. Jon Favreau's "Cowboys & Aliens" will premiere for the crowds at Comic-Con in just a few weeks and it's a big show of confidence (and thanks) from the filmmaker. As M. Night Shyamalan well knows, the geeks in San Diego aren't shy are about sharing their feelings but Favreau must fee...
