    In Theaters: Find Yourself 'Beloved' Of 'Cosmopolis' & 'ParaNorman' Or Get An 'Awakening' With 'The Expendables 2'

    Hi there! It’s a regular Halloween in August as this weekend’s new releases do much to call back the spirits of the past.

    LFF '11 Review: Rebecca Hall Chiller 'The Awakening' Is Flawed, But Also Kind Of A Blast

    It might seem ingracious to complain, but film festivals can sometimes be something of a slog.

Which is exactly why most film festivals mi...

    Watch: Trailer For Rebecca Hall Chiller 'The Awakening' Looks Like Spooky Fun

    Certain things just make intrinsically good material for ghost stories. Wide-eyed children, for one. Big empty houses in the middle of nowhere. Pale actresses in period nightdresses.

    First Image & Synopsis For Rebecca Hall In Ghost Story 'The Awakening'

    Ever since debuting in 2006 with very strong performances in "Starter for 10" and "The Prestige," it only seemed a matter of time before Rebecca Hall made her way on to the A-list, and 2010 saw the actress deliver on that promise, with storming turns in "Red Riding: 1974," "Please Give" and the surp...
