    Publicizing a film makes for very strange sleepovers. Ralph Fiennes’ stunning modern-day version of Coriolanus – which Fiennes directed and stars in – arrives in theaters today after a brief awards-qualifying run in December. Set in a country resembling Serbia during the war, with ...

    Screenwriter John Logan Talks Writing 'Coriolanus' With Swagger & Dreaming Up The World Of 'Hugo'

    It’s no small thing to collaborate with Gore Verbinski, Martin Scorsese or Ralph Fiennes. But to work with all three in the same year, on separate projects, is a truly remarkable accomplishment. And that’s exactly what screenwriter John Logan did in 2011, crafting screenplays for “...

    'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,' 'Moneyball,' 'War Horse' Win Nominations For ACE Editing Awards

    Far more so than critics' groups and things like the Golden Globes, the guild awards are far more accurate at showing how Oscar nominations will play out. That's because when it comes to the Academy's nomination process, each category is voted on specifially by their own branch -- the ac...

    'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' Gets Some Love In ASC Nominations, 'War Horse' Once Again Left In The Barn

    The most interesting thing about watching the awards season is how the narratives slowly take shape and change over the dense, fast-moving months leading up to the Oscars. Back in the fall, "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" was being tipped as the movie to beat, with Gary Oldman said to be locke...

    If there is a single cinematic subject that seems to unite commenters, bloggers, filmmakers, distributors and exhibitors in vehemence, it has to be the rise/fall of the exciting new format/gimmicky fad that is the post-“Avatar” 3D film. However, rather frustratingly if you’re, say, researching an ar...

    The Playlist Staff Pick Their Most Underrated & Overrated Films Of 2011

    One of the pecularities of our site is our insistence on writing in the third personn, something designed to create the impression of a collective, a hive mind, and it's served us fairly well so far.
