    Peter Berg Fought to Keep Brutal War Survival Thriller 'Lone Survivor' Real UPDATE

He is a gifted director who can now be forgiven for "Battleship," a misbegotten Hasbro/Universal concoction that he agreed to direct so that he could make his passion project "Lone Survivor." The indie-financed Universal release is a tough, unremitting, authen...

    Arthouse Audit: 'Lone Survivor' and 'August: Osage County' Hold Well as 'Her' Widens

The market is packed with awards contenders in varying stages of release, with Oscar-qualifiers that opened last week dominating the action. Most of the awards pictures showed minor drops or even increases. Most of them won't break...

    'American Hustle,' 'Wolf Of Wall Street,' 'Before Midnight' & More Earn WGA Nominations But Not Coens

    Are awards season voters no longer entranced by the magic of the Coen Brothers? Even with "Inside Llewyn Davis" earning no shortage of acclaim, that has not translated into very much love from awards types, with the film getting completely shut out of the Producers Guild Award nominations yesterday....

    10 Films To See In January

    January is perceived to be a flat-out, no-good month to release a movie. Usually considered the dumping ground for films which would be killed opening up any other time—no disrespect—but if your movie’s being released this month, it will be approached with a greater sense of wariness. However, it's ...

    Arthouse Audit: 'Lone Survivor' Opens Well in Two Theaters While 'August: Osage County' Falls Short

    The long holiday weekend is one of the best periods of the year for specialized films. But given the plethora of high profile art films and quality wide studio releases to catch up with, business is spread out among many titles.

    Holiday Box Office Top Ten: 'Frozen' and 'Hobbit' Beat Out Newer Films, 'August: Osage County' Opens Flat

    The post-Christmas weekend can be one of the biggest of the year. And so it was. The top 10 grossed $171 million, up a healthy $17 million from 2012, which nudges the year's totals slightly ahead of 2012. However the strong weekend total comes despite an uneven performance from a wide variety of fi...

    Lone Survivor

    There are no false heroics here, only the bravery of men under fire who trust each other with their very lives.
