    Film Aside, Can You Listen to the 'Les Miserables' Soundtrack On Its Own?

    "Les Misérables" may have taken home the Golden Globe for Best Comedy/Musical, but it's nowhere near to a universally acclaimed film. 2012 has been a year in which none of the top awards contenders have earned that distinction -- "Lincoln" gets as many raves as "mehs," and ebates on the ethics of "Z...

    James Mangold Calls 'The Wolverine' A Dark Character Piece Like Eastwood's 'The Outlaw Josey Wales'

    'Walk the Line' Director Also Likens It To 'Chinatown,' Calls It A Foreign-Language Super-Hero Drama, Film-Noir & Detective Story; Reveals He Spoke With AronofskyEvidenced by his success with “Cop Land,” “Walk the Line,” “3:10 To Yuma” and “Knight and Day,” James Mangold has a knack for turning populist entertainment into personal expression. But when 20th Century Fox announced that Mangold would be taking on “The Wolverine,” a sequel to “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” his fans seemed concerned he might be overwhelmed by the enormity of a franchise sequel, and the constant scrutiny that seems to come with one. (Never mind the fact that he’s direc...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Real Steel' Takes Number One, Looks More Like Imitation Scrap

    There are only a handful of stars in Hollywood, and Dreamworks gambled on Hugh Jackman being one of them for “Real Steel.” While the picture is hitting number one with a $27 million tally, it’s clear they may have erred. Dreamworks and Disney were very aggressive in marketing this robot boxing movie...

    Hugh Jackman Trained With Sugar Ray Leonard & More You Need To Know About 'Real Steel'

    When “Real Steel” trailers first surfaced earlier in the year, it was difficult to know what to make of the robot boxing film. With Michael Bay’s triple feature letdown of the “The Transformers” trilogy and the unavoidable similarities between "Real Steel” and the kitschy Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em robots of...

    Hugh Jackman Doubts There Will Be A 'X-Men 4' Movie, But Is Still Open To More 'Wolverine' Films

    Actor Says He Asked Darren Aronofsky To Helm 'X-Men: The Last Stand,' Before He Dropped Out Of 'The Wolverine'This weekend Hugh Jackman was on hand in Los Angeles to discuss his robot boxing movie, “Real Steel,” which hits theaters October 7th. Early buzz on that flick is good and the studio has enough faith that they’ve already begun development on a sequel. But before that sequel, Jackman will sing alongside Russell Crowe in “Les Miserables” and, once again, return to the role that made him for “The Wolverine,” the much-discussed, long in-development sequel to 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” Scripted by Christopher McQuarrie, the story i...

    'Wolverine' Sequel May Have To Wait Several More Months for Hugh Jackman (Maybe Summer 2012)

    Matthew Vaughn Expected To Return For Another 'X-Men: First Class Sequel'While making the rounds to promote the home video release of the surprisingly fun "X-Men: First Class" (tomorrow is "First Friday" or something, 20th Century Fox is making a huge over-done fuss out of this release in hopes to drum up some more revenue, sheesh), producer Lauren Shuler Donner -- who we're sure is a nice lady but on the special features portion of the Blu-ray disc looks like some kind of horrifying wax sculpture brought to life by dark magic to inflict deadly harm on the land of the living -- let loose some details about other projects set within the "X-Men...

    New Photo: Jennifer Garner Carves A Car Out Of 'Butter'; Long-Form Synopsis Released

    One of the biggest question marks at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival slate is The Weinstein Company comedy, "Butter." It's a curious picture for several reasons. It's not entirely clear if it's a drama, dramedy or comedy, but the TIFF website firmly says comedy (with elements of "identity" and "politics"), so fine then, maybe it incorporates all those elements. The TIFF site isn't helping either, as one of the loglines say the principal cast is the family at the center of the picture that's played by Jennifer Garner and Ty Burrell, plus the African American girl Yara Shahidi, who ends up as a nemesis to Garner's character. M...
