    Craig Brewer Says Seeing The 'Karate Kid' Remake With A Cheering Crowd Inspired His 'Footloose'

    Mary Elizabeth Winstead Says Reshoots On 'The Thing' Were To Help Punch Up The Story & Ending

    While fans and followers of John Carpenter's seminal "The Thing" are quick to dismiss anything that dares to touch the hallowed material of the horror maestro, even the strictest purists have to admit to at least a morbid curiosity in Matthijs van Heijiningen Jr.’s forthcoming prequel to the 1982 fi...

    Luke Evans Says Edgar Allan Poe Thriller 'The Raven' Doesn't Shy On The Blood & Gore

    Since starting his acting career proper in 2003, Luke Evans has seemed to spend more time in period attire than in any other clothing: from “Clash of the Titans” to “Robin Hood” to “The Three Musketeers,” he’s repeatedly transformed himself into a muscular, mustachioed monolith of a man who is more ...

    NYFF: "It Was A Very Slow Process" -- Michelle Williams Talks Challenge Of Portraying Marilyn Monroe

    And 5 Other Things Learned From The "My Week With Marilyn" Press Conference At NYFFWe've now reached the midpoint of the New York Film Festival, which means that tonight will see the World Premiere of the festival's Centerpiece, "My Week With Marilyn." While most of NYFF's films have stopped elsewhere on the festival carousel, this is one of the few films to make its world premiere at the fest. (It's certainly the one with the highest profile, that is, until Monday's secret screening anyway.) Based on two memoirs by Colin Clark, "The Prince, The Showgirl And Me: 6 Months On The Set With Marilyn & Olivier" and "My Week With Marilyn," the film ...

Mr. Martinez, familiar to fans of Steven Soderbergh for scoring several outstanding films in the director's filmography, including his standout score for "Solaris", was generous enough to sit down with us again - with two very well received films now in theaters (Soderbergh's "Contagion" and Nicolas Winding Refn's "Drive"), we talked about his first ...

    NYFF: Michael Fassbender Hopes For A 'De Niro/Scorsese' Relationship With Director Steve McQueen

    And Nine More Things We Learned About 'Shame' From New York Film Festival ScreeningIt's no surprise considering how spectacularly good his feature debut "Hunger" was, but Steve McQueen's "Shame" has marched through Venice, Telluride and Toronto, winning more and more fans along the way. And while there's a few months yet to come, we're almost certain that it'll appear high up on a number of year-end lists of Playlist staffers come the end of 2011.

    Alexander Skarsgård Says His Dad Encouraged Him To Work With Lars Von Trier
