    The Amazing Race: Why 'Transformers 3' & 'W.E.' Deserve Their Oscar Nominations

    This week, we want to deal with something that's been bugging us a little, not just this year, but for the last few years. Every January, a familiar, but slightly different mantra is repeated around the internet: "I can't believe [insert critically-reviled blockbuster] has got an Oscar nomination, a...

    In Theaters: 'The Woman in Black' Will Hope To 'Chronicle' A 'Big Miracle'

    Happy Friday all, and welcome to February. It finally feels like a normal release weekend, now that we are out of the January no-mans-land. Funny how that self-fulfilling prophecy works out. Or, how studios strictly adhere to the "January movie" policy. Anyway, onwards and upwards my pets....

    Madonna's W.E.: Half Truth, Half Dare

    Madonna could not have had a more enthusiastic and welcoming audience for W.E. than I was when I walked into the screening room. I’m fascinated by the inexhaustible Wallis Simpson story. We may never understand the psycho-sexual-political drama that led Edward VIII to abdicate so he could...

    'W.E.' Star Andrea Riseborough Talks The "Apocalyptic Limbo" Of 'Resistance' & Trawling Chat Rooms In 'Disconnect'

    Andrea Riseborough is about to hit screens as Wallis Simpson in the Madonna-directed "W.E.," but the actress is quick to point out that she has a slew of non-period films coming up, including her Sundance IRA thriller "Shadow Dancer" and ensemble drama "Disconnect."

    Madonna & Andrea Riseborough Talk The Music & The Rumored Nazi Ties Of Edward VIII & Wallis Simpson In 'W.E.'

    Madonna found a kindred spirit of sorts when she started researching the life of Wallis Simpson -- long before she dreamed of directing and co-writing a "Julie & Julia"-style take on the Duchess of Windsor in "W.E." Feeling very much the foreigner when she first moved to England, Madonna started rea...

    Watch: New Clip From Madonna's Golden Globe Winning 'W.E.'

    Perhaps the biggest surprise last night at the Golden Globes -- in an evening where everyone who was expected to win, did -- was Madonna's victory in the Best Original Song category for the ironically titled "Masterpiece." While the win pissed off a cranky Elton John, the honor spoke b...

    The Best Way To Enjoy 'W.E'? A Madonna Vanity Project.

    "W.E." is less outright bad than underwhelming; if the director were unknown, it would hardly deserve notice. Like her first film, the 2008 "Filth and Wisdom," it suffers from countless storytelling flaws. But where her debut was a bizarre low-budget and blatantly amateur British...

    ‘W.E.’ Release Date Pushed Back To February 3, 2012 After Oscar-Qualifying Run In December

    When you’re a studio executive who has his eye on that Oscar prize, your schedule tends to move around this time of year. For Harvey Weinstein, Oscar gold is that metaphorical paint he needs to huff every 12 months or else he loses it and starts putting New York Observer film critics in headlo...

    New Images From Madonna's 'W.E.' Starring Abbie Cornish & Oscar Isaac

    Madonna's latest effort behind the camera hasn't exactly been the easiest of affairs. It was widely reviled after its premiere at the Venice Film Festival in August where our own reviewer called it "a royal disaster." Last month word cropped up that Harvey Weinstein was sending Madonna back to the editing bay to trim ten minutes off the movie before its release later this year. Then when she recently took the movie to the BFI London Film Festival, she was roundly booed by by autograph hounds, but it was misreported as jeers coming from fans who felt she wasn't spending enough time with them. Either way, it's all about the work right? And with...
