    Gerard Butler Replaces Liam Hemsworth In Sci-Fi Actioner 'The Raven'

    For a minute, it looked like Gerard Butler might be done. The Scottish actor had never quite cemented his stardom since breaking through with "300," and had a series of painfull and gigantic flops in the last few months, with both "Chasing Mavericks" and "Playing For Keeps" proving to be box office ...

    'The Hunger Games‘ Star Liam Hemsworth Flies To 'The Raven'

    So, this project has nothing to do with that largely unsuccessful John Cusack thriller of last year, nor anything to do with Edgar Allen Poe at all, to the best of our knowledge. It’s nothing to do with the Roger Corman movie or the Henri-Georges Clouzot one, nor is it based on the popular Disney Ch...

    The Raven—movie review

    Poor Edgar Allan Poe can’t get a break from Hollywood—at least, not since Roger Corman made his famous adaptations in the 1960s with Vincent Price. Even the 1963 Corman movie called 'The Raven' with Price, Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre, and young Jack Nicholson had nothing to do with Poe’s immortal poe...

    Review: Dim-Witted Edgar Allan Poe Thriller 'The Raven' Is Too Boring To Be A Guilty Pleasure

    About ten minutes into James McTeigue's "The Raven," a large, hairy man -- a writer and a critic, as it turns out -- is strapped to a table by a mysterious figure. A mighty blade, inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's "The Pit And The Pendulum," hangs forbodingly above him. And to his unseen captor, he scre...

    John Cusack Talks Playing Edgar Allen Poe in 'The Raven' and What to Expect From 'The Paperboy'

    For the past few years, John Cusack, who got his start by charming his way into the hearts of millions in a string of defining '80s comedies ("Say Anything," "Better Off Dead"), has been playing it relatively safe. He popped up to save his family in Roland Emmerich's limp...

    The folks at Relativity are getting their 2012 calendar in order, and that means shifting the release dates of a few movies, and in the case of one picture, moving it all the way to next year.

    Luke Evans Says Edgar Allan Poe Thriller 'The Raven' Doesn't Shy On The Blood & Gore

    Since starting his acting career proper in 2003, Luke Evans has seemed to spend more time in period attire than in any other clothing: from “Clash of the Titans” to “Robin Hood” to “The Three Musketeers,” he’s repeatedly transformed himself into a muscular, mustachioed monolith of a man who is more ...

    Watch: Trailer For 'The Raven' Is Basically A Pulpy, Period Version Of 'Se7en'

    The period-based serial killer movie is a rare beast, one that has produced more notable misses in recent memory ("From Hell") than outright successes, but "The Raven" looks like it could be the pulpy good fun that we've been missing. Boasting an inventive concept, the first trailer for the film doe...
