    Sundance Review: Good Performances & Narrative Tapestry Can't Save Emotionally Distant 'The Words'

    A combination of shopworn literary clichés combined with an “Inception”-worthy daisy chain of White People Problems, “The Words” fails to surpass dramatically the bland lack of specificity in its title while still offering a solid roundup of performances from its talen...

    First Looks At Bradley Cooper In 'The Words' & 'The Place Beyond The Pines'

    You're gonna have a whole lotta Bradley Cooper coming at you in the near future. The actor, who had two big hits this year with "Limitless" and "The Hangover Part II," has spent the rest of 2011 cashing in on the goodwill those projects created, with no less than three movies going in front of camer...

    Olivia Wilde, Ben Barnes, J.K. Simmons & John Hannah Join Bradley Cooper In 'The Words'

    Bradley Cooper Joins 'The Words'; Jeremy Irons In Talks; Directorial Debut By 'Tron: Legacy' Writers

    Though his profile was raised considerably thanks to a starring turn in "The Hangover," Bradley Cooper isn't quite proven outside of that comedy vehicle. Yet. Oh sure, he had "The A-Team" last summer, but that was sold more on the franchise than the actors and its terribleness was due mostly to the atrocious material than anything else. Coming up, he's got the thriller "Limitless" that will be the first real test of his leading man status and he will be testing the waters with none other than Robert De Niro in that pic. But clearly, Cooper isn't eager to get pigeonholed into frat boy comedy and his next project is another shift of direction f...
