    Watch: New Trailer For 'Paddington' Starring Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman & Hugh Bonneville

    It's hard to think of a producer more successful right now than David Heyman. Before anyone had even heard of them, he picked up the rights to the "Harry Potter" books from J.K. Rowling, and turned them into the biggest franchise in history. Beyond that, he's also been behind megahits "I Am Legend" ...

    Michael Shannon Moves Into '99 Homes'; Nicole Kidman & Colin Firth Hug 'Paddington' & More

    While Ramin Bahrani's leap to the slightly-bigger-time earlier this year with "At Any Price" didn't quite work, we still admired the hell out of the movie. Putting the plot aside, which is perhaps too overstuffed for its own good, with some genre elements that don't quite work, Bahrani's study of mi...

    'Paddington Bear' Movie Moves Forward From 'Harry Potter' Producer & 'Mighty Boosh' Director

We could list the many terrible films that have followed this pattern, but it’s probably much easier to sum up their quality in a single quote. When asked in “Zombieland” about whether or not...
