    Film Aside, Can You Listen to the 'Les Miserables' Soundtrack On Its Own?

    "Les Misérables" may have taken home the Golden Globe for Best Comedy/Musical, but it's nowhere near to a universally acclaimed film. 2012 has been a year in which none of the top awards contenders have earned that distinction -- "Lincoln" gets as many raves as "mehs," and ebates on the ethics of "Z...

    Freddie Mercury Biopic With Sacha Baron Cohen Aiming For Spring 2013 Shoot, 2014 Release

    One of the more immediate recognitions of perfect casting in recent years, the news of Sacha Baron Cohen tackling the role of Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury, has excited fans of both talents since the biopic was announced in 2010. Development has stuttered in the interim though, even as the film'...

    Nothing To See Here: There's Little Reason To Be Worried About 'Django Unchained'

    Let's try and keep this brief, shall we? Two actors dropped out of Quentin Tarantino's would-be subversive Western cum slave epic "Django Unchained" this week -- to be more exact, the news of these two actors dropping out of the film came out this week. Presumably this actually happened a while ago....

    The Academy Grows A Pair, Sacha Baron Cohen Will Show Up At The Oscars As 'The Dictator'

    Perhaps realizing that not having The Muppets perform their Best Song nomination, and relying on Cirque Du Soleil as the big centerpiece of entertainment (aside from handing out awards of course) on Sunday night, the Academy has relented on their ban -- sort of -- and allowed Sacha Baron Cohen to sh...

    LFF '11: 'The Queen' Scribe Peter Morgan Says He's Not Necessarily Done With Tony Blair Yet

    '360' Writer Tells Us Freddie Mercury Biopic Is Waiting For Sacha Baron Cohen, Motor Racing Won't Be Focus Of Ron Howard's 'Rush'Exclusive: Getting two Oscar nominations in two years tends to make your inbox a little fuller than it was before, so it's no surprise that picking up nods in 2007 for "Th...

    Martin Scorsese's Unfinished 'Hugo' Is An Enchanting Fairytale & Affectionate Loveletter To Cinema

    Filmmaker Introduces Work-In-Progress 3D Film At Surprise New York Film Festival ScreeningWhat else could it have been? When Monday's New York Film Festival "secret" screening was announced last week, speculation went into overdrive. Most missed the fact that the picture would be a 2011 release which greatly narrowed down the field. Clint Eastwood's "J.Edgar"? The NYFF/Eastwood relationship is a close one, but the picture is already promised to the AFI festival in early November. David Fincher's "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" was another big theory, but that film's still in the editing room. That left either Martin Scorsese's "Hugo" or one...

    Martin Scorsese's Trailer For 'Hugo' Looks Like The 3D Adventure We've All Been Waiting For

    In recent years, we've seen 3D films done by the likes of James Cameron, Michael Bay and botched by others we won't bother naming, but none of us have seen a 3D movie, a family adventure film no less, by Martin Scorsese. And so the trailer for his upcoming film, "Hugo" (formerly known as "Hugo Cabre...

    'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Star J.B. Smoove Bags A Role In Sacha Baron Cohen's 'The Dictator'

    Star's Brother Erran Baron Cohen To Compose The MusicMore or less everyone involved in long-running HBO comedy "Curb Your Enthusiasm" has done pretty well out of it outside of the day job: creator/star Larry David toplined a Woody Allen film (albeit a terrible one...) and bagged a supporting turn in "The Three Stooges," Jeff Garlin's become a Pixar stalwart second only to John Ratzenberger, while Cheryl Hines got to make her directorial debut on "Serious Moonlight." But perhaps the biggest breakout seems to be the actor who's behind one of the most seminal supporting characters on the show: J.B. Smoove, who's played Leon Black on the last cou...
