    Review: Steven Spielberg's 'The Adventures Of Tintin' Is A Gloriously Enjoyable Mo-Cap Marvel

    Across his 40 year career as Hollywood's most beloved filmmaker, Steven Spielberg has tried his hand at many different things -- the blockbuster thrill ride, the family film, the comedy, the war film, hardcore science-fiction, serious dramas and whatever it was that "The Terminal" was, a diverse range of pictures united by that certain Spielberg je-ne-sais-quoi. But there's something he's never tackled directly himself; the animated film. Sure, he's produced TV cartoons like "Animaniacs," and even the occasional big-screen one, like "An American Tail" and "We're Back," but for the most part, the Bearded One has always preferred live action to...

    Empire Big Screen '11: 'Kill List' Helmer Ben Wheatley's Next Is Edgar Wright-Produced 'Sightseers'

    Comedy 'I, Macrobane' With Nick Frost Will Follow In 2012Perhaps the biggest homegrown hit of Empire Big Screen over the weekend was Ben Wheatley's "Kill List," a low-budget hitman/horror flick from the director of the excellent, terminally underseen crime film "Down Terrace." More than perhaps any other British film that had footage shown, the clips had people talking for much of the weekend, and director Ben Wheatley hit the event on Saturday, along with stars Neil Maskell and MyAnna Buring, to get the buzz going. If you've read our review from SXSW, you'll know that it's a film worth getting very excited about (it even made one member of T...

    Nicki Minaj Will Terrify Your Children By Voicing A Character In 'Ice Age: Continental Drift'

    Nick Frost, JB Smoove, Joy Behar, Heather Morris, Josh Gad, Alan Tudyk, Kunal Nayyar & Alain Chabat Also Join The CastHere's the deal with Nicki Minaj. We don't get it. Her whole cartoony/sexpot image combined with tepid musical output makes us wonder why she's as popular as is. The other side of the coin is that she absolutely kills it on Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy with her memorable intro on "Dark Fantasy" and arguably one of the best verses on the whole album in "Monster" (next to Pusha T's turn on "Runaway). Regardless, Minaj voicing a character in an animated film? Yeah, it sort of makes sense even if her delivery may...
