    One of the surprise hits of the year was this summer’s cheap Ethan Hawke-starring horror movie “The Purge,” and with the $3 million-budgeted film making nearly $90 million worldwide, you better believe Universal wants a re-up.

    Recap: 'The Newsroom' Season 2, Episode 2 'The Genoa Tip'

    Recap: 'The Newsroom' Season 2 Episode 1, 'The First Thing We Do, Let's Kill All The Lawyers'

    After a rocky first season, both compelling and cringe-worthy in equal doses, and sometimes all at the same time, Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom" is back for a second season and it has undergone some significant retooling.

    Watch: Porn Isn't So Fun In Trailer For 'About Cherry' With James Franco, Heather Graham & Dev Patel

    Review: While Hopelessly Drunk On The Ideals Of Bygone Journalism, ‘The Newsroom’ Is Still An Engaging Broadcast

    The longer Aaron Sorkin’s deeply-nostalgic-for-the-golden-age-of-news show “The Newsroom” goes on for, the more improbable the workplace drama (and dramedy), set at a fictional cable-news show, becomes.

    As far as starts to careers go for young actors, having your first role in the first-line-up of hugely popular U.K. teen series "Skins," and then going on to the lead role in a global hit that swept the Oscars, namely "Slumdog Millionaire," isn't a bad one, and Dev Patel must consider himself fairly...

    Guessing James Franco's next step is an entirely foolhardy pastime. The absurdly busy polymath star jumps from project to project seemingly at random, with recent movements including playing a guy who chops his own arm off, a blockbuster about super-intelligent monkeys, a stint on a soap opera, maki...
