Well, we still don’t entirely (will the present-day stuff be pre or post “X-Men: The Last Stand”?), but we now know for certa...

    'X-Men: First Class': The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

    By this point, it's more than likely that you've checked out "X-Men: First Class" (although its underwhelming box office suggests that there were fewer of you than we thought). And, if the film's strong exit scores are anything to go by, you, like most of The Playlist team, found it as entertaining ...

    En-Ra-Ha: Eddie Marsan Joins Bryan Singer's 'Jack The Giant Killer'

    We're never one to begrudge anyone a payday, particularly when they're a character actor who's toiled away in theater and TV for years and who's finally managed to get a big break. Which is why we're pleased to see Eddie Marsan working so consistently these days. The actor's been working since the late 80s, but the last decade has seen him go from strength to strength -- kicking off with serious, auteur-driven pictures like "Gangs of New York" and "21 Grams," he's gone on to crop up in the likes of "Mission Impossible 3," "Miami Vice," "Hancock" and "Sherlock Holmes," while still turning out terrific performances in the indie world, particula...

    Ewan McGregor In Talks For Bryan Singer's 'Jack The Giant Killer'

    Adelaide Kane and Eleanor Tomlinson Latest Names Mentioned For Female LeadAfter a pair of scorching lead performances in two Danny Boyle films, "Shallow Grave" and "Trainspotting," it looked as though the world would be Ewan McGregor's oyster -- he was picked by George Lucas to play the key role of the young Obi-Wan in the Star Wars prequels, and it seemed as though a star had been born. But outside of those films, and the role he'll perhaps be best remembered for in future generations, as the lead in "Moulin Rouge" (which this writer believes wouldn't work anywhere near as well without the tonal dexterity displayed by the Scottish actor), he...
