    Berlin Reviews: ‘Two Men In Town,’ Blind Massage,’ ‘If You Don’t, I Will’ & ‘In Between Worlds’

In all cases, however, Bouchareb...

    Watch: NSFW First Trailer For Forest Whitaker, Orlando Bloom Crime Movie 'Zulu'

    Though Forest Whitaker looks he’s headed back to the Kodak Theater with the sincere “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” the Oscar-winning actor looks to be getting into rough-and-tumble mode with the Jérôme Salle-helmed “Zulu.” A French (and somewhat NSFW) trailer (via Shadow and Act) has arrived online for ...

    As Cecil Gaines, the fictional character loosely based on Eugene Allen, a black presidential butler who served through eight administrations from Eisenhower to Reagan, Forest Whitaker gives a performance so powerful in its subtlety that it's dumbfounding to realize that this is the same actor who wo...

    Oprah Winfrey On Working With Lee Daniels On 'The Butler': 'If he had his way, I would have been naked, saying the f-word many times over.'

    Review: 'Lee Daniels' The Butler' Starring Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey

    “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” is nothing if not full of sincerity and effort. Which is why it’s so entirely confusing why they cast former teen heartthrob John Cusack as hangdog Richard Nixon. He’s fallen from his “Say Anything” days (and even the highs of “High Fidelity”), but this is maybe the worst c...
