    Anthony Mackie To Play 'Jimi' Hendrix, Robert De Niro Drives 'Bus 757' & More

    At one point a few years ago, Paul Greengrass was looking to make a biopic on legendary rocker Jimi Hendrix with Anthony Mackie in the lead. But when the Hendrix estate wouldn't sign off on the project, it fell apart and everyone moved on. But now, things are moving again. Mackie is back to play the...

    What Are You Seeing This Weekend? 'Dead Man Down' Tries To Avoid 'The ABCs Of Death' From 'Oz'

    Happy Friday, dear readers! One of the most wonderful things about film is its diversity of subject and style, the potential for variance and innovation inherent in the medium. This weekend's release schedule displays this core trait with relish; truly, it's a study in contrasts. We have an action-h...

    Review: Tommy Lee Jones Shines In Otherwise Serviceable, Flawed 'Emperor'

    "We must be seen as liberators, not conquerors," Tommy Lee Jones' crusty General MacArthur says in the opening moments of "Emperor," and that line of dialogue is about as thematically rich as the film gets. A modestly budgeted, respectfully executed post-WWII drama, the film is also entirely edgeles...

    Watch: Tommy Lee Jones Is General Douglas MacArthur In First Trailer For WWII Drama 'Emperor'

    Can anyone play gruff, grizzly, still kind of endearing but totally standoffish better than Tommy Lee Jones? For this writer, he pretty much walked away with Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" as the idealistic yet conflicted Thaddeus Stevens (equally awesome was James Spader, but that's...

    Good Old Fashioned American Swagger: Clip From 'Emperor' With Tommy Lee Jones & Matthew Fox

    After being the butt of the joke for far too long (not helped by continual references to that "Knocked Up" gag), is Matthew Fox trying extremely hard to be taken seriously? The actor lost a shitload of weight to play a cage-fighting sociopathic hitman in the upcoming movie "Alex Cross." And by the s...

    First Look At Tyler Perry And An Insanely Ripped Matthew Fox In 'Alex Cross,' Plus Images Of Fox In 'Emperor'

    On "30 Rock"'s season finale last night, Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan) announced his intention to open his own movie studio that makes films where he dresses up as an elderly woman, that appeal entirely to black audiences. It's an obvious dig at the ludicrously successful Tyler Perry, who's made milli...

    Matthew Fox Goes Back To An Island, Starring In Post-WW2 Japan-Set Drama 'Emperor'

    You know what's interesting about Matthew Fox? That he's actually managing to carve out a fairly interesting post-"Lost" career. Breaking out of a global TV smash like that sci-fi series isn't the easiest thing in the world, as David Duchovny's film career will attest to, b...
