    Box Office: 'Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters' Tops Slow Weekend

    So, did the big fairy tale boom happen? “Alice In Wonderland” burst out of the gate with a billion dollar gross, leading the way for two Snow White movies that performed respectably, if not powerfully. And here in January, we have another, the R-rated “Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters.” The fact tha...

    What Are You Seeing This Weekend? 'Parker' & 'Hansel & Gretel' Have A 'Knife Fight' For 'The Taste Of Money'

    Park City may be aflutter with cinematic thrills, but it's still January in the rest of the country. Which means we have another weekend of lackluster studio releases banking on the bevy of visuals distracting you from the fact that they were written by a robot without feelings. On the other hand, t...

    Review: 'Parker' Is A Visually Indistinguishable, Punishingly Violent, And Painfully Inert Pulp Trifle

    The character of Parker is one of those icons of hard-boiled pulp fiction – a smart alecky bruiser created by legendary novelist Donald Westlake (under his Richard Stark nom de plume), who appeared in over a dozen novels, a handful of cinematic adaptations (most notably portrayed by Lee Marvin in "P...

    Bad Disguises, Bad Accent & Michael Chiklis: It's The Trailer For Jason Statham's 'Parker'

    If you're a professional thief, living outside the law, you'd think that if you're going to wear a disguise it would be more than putting on a pair of glasses or wearing a cowboy hat. But then again, when it comes to Jason Statham, he breaks all the rules. The first trailer for "Parker" is here and ...

    Jason Statham Movie 'Parker' Gets A Poster That Confirms Jason Statham Is In It

    Jason Statham is practically a genre unto himself. So when it comes to marketing a movie with him in it, we understand that you don't need complicate things. But there is such a thing as taking things a bit too easy.

    Jason Statham & Jennifer Lopez's 'Parker' Bumped To January 25, 2013

    You know, this was going to be a snarkier post but then we dug up this set photo of Jason Statham wearing a goddamn cowboy hat, and "Parker" is now our most anticipated movie of 2013. Jason Statham has done a lot things in his career -- most of them variations on the same theme -- but we h...

    Nick Nolte Joins Jason Statham's 'Parker'

    ...and then there's Nick Nolte, the two-time Academy Award nominee who seemed to be in every movie in the '90s and then hit a weird patch in the aughts where he was less in demand (even though 2002's "The Good Thief" features one of his finest performances), but seems to be be back to his ever-busy ways. While we'll ignore the fact that he was in "Arthur" and "The Zookeeper" this year, he's got the hotly buzzed "Warrior" and the highly anticipated Michael Mann/HBO series "Luck" on the horizon and he recently came aboard the Robert Redford/Shia LaBeouf vehicle "The Company You Keep." And while we may not approve too highly of his next move, hi...

    Michael Chiklis Will Square Off Against Jason Statham In 'Parker'

    Clifton Collins Jr. & Wendell Pierce Also JoinFor Michael Chiklis, a leap to the big screen has been been curiously out of the reach.

    Jennifer Lopez Circles Jason Statham's 'Parker' & 'What To Expect When You're Expecting'

    Jennifer Lopez is at a bizarre crossroads in her career, where she's currently famous for formerly being a superstar, because at any rate, no one wants to see her in movies or listen to her music. Her last few efforts on the big screen -- "The Back-Up Plan," "El cantate" and "Bordertown" -- were outright duds. While on the music fromt, despite having a hit single with "On The Floor," no one bought her album "Love?" with only 183,000 copies sold to date a far cry from her previous effort "Brave" (650,000 copies) and leagues away from the era when she was moving units in the millions. But that being said, she's still a brand, an "American Idol"...
