It's the little things, they say, that count. The details, one might even posit.
If that's the case, then this giveaway counts bigtime: To celebrate the DVD release of "The Details," starring Tobey Maguire, Elizabeth Banks and Ray Liotta, we're happy to present a very "Detail"-oriented DVD bundle giveaway. Get More »
This week: Peter Jackson returns to Middle-earth with "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," the first of three movies based on the classic fantasy novel "The Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien, which features Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins and Ian McKellen reprising his role as the wizard Gandalf from "The Lord of the Rings."
I don't believe in feeling guilt over what movies I like. Many critics and bloggers and other people who get to say with a straight face that they get paid to think about movies all day will tell you all about "important" movies and other milestones they feel are underappreciated by mainstream audiences, but I personally don't feel like I'm above having a good time at the movie theater.
You won't see "Zero Dark Thirty" on this list, nor will you find "The Master," though I saw both and enjoyed them and took something away from them. They just aren't movies that I can see myself wanting to enjoy again (ever again), unlike the 10 titles that made my admittedly somewhat fluffy year-end list.
2012 was a banner year for movies, and the hits just keep coming (thanks for the time off, winter break! You would need to call in sick to see the array of awesome holiday offerings coming at us before year's end). Read on for my list of my top 10 picks for the year. Get More »
At 12 years old, Kirsten Dunst had her very first on-screen kiss in the gothic horror film "Interview With the Vampire." Playing a child vampire, the role came with the difficult task of locking lips with a much older guy. Creepy? Maybe... if that "guy" wasn't Brad Pitt. Luckily, the smooch paid off and the film ended up kickstarting an already lengthy career for the now 30-year-old actress. Get More »
If you though "Bridesmaids" was a riot, just wait until you lay your eyes on "Bachelorette," playwright Leslye Headland's filthy, lewd, crass and totally hilarious film debut starring Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan and Isla Fischer as three best friends who like doing very bad things.
A hit at the Sundance Film Festival where it premiered earlier this year, "Bachelorette" centers mostly on Regan (Dunst), a privileged and high-minded young woman who is horrified to learn that one of her good friends (Rebel Wilson) — the girl everyone used to call "pig face" in high school — will be walking down the aisle before her. And, as luck would have it, said friend has picked Regan to be her maid of honor. Guess how she takes the news... Get More »
It must be Fall! School's finally in session, the weather is getting ever slightly cooler and the offerings at your local movie theater change from big-budget popcorn fare to serious potential award winners.
This autumn the studios have a wide array of noteworthy films to put on your must-see list, from art-house Oscar contenders to teen ensembles and much-anticipated literary and musical adaptations.
We're celebrating the start of Fall with 15 actors who are going to blow audiences away this season. Some have been around for a few years but have yet to break out and others are lucky enough to have their first major roles in buzzworthy movies.
Yes, unlike the "Bridesmaids," the ladies of "Bachelorette" actually get to indulge in a little "ahhh, snort, grunt" (to sort-of quote Isla Fisher's character). But at what price?
"Bachelorette" stars Fisher, Kirsten Dunst and Lizzy Caplan as three BFFs who are called upon to be bridesmaids at the wedding of a girl they used to call "Pigface" (the always-hilarious Rebel Wilson) back in high school. Shenanigans and disasters ensue (don't they always?), including attending a get-together that Caplan's character describes as "Jane Austen on crack" and the unfortunate destruction of the wedding dress.

The 2012 Sundance Film Festival is over, and film industry types and journalists have returned home with a pretty good idea of what the indie scene will look like this year.
But what about you, dear reader, who didn't get the chance to play in Park City and mingle with bundled-up celebs? Have no fear. Our intrepid NextMovie Sundance team braved long lines, snow drifts, crowded screenings and press junkets to bring you the 20 films we loved at Sundance this year -- and that may soon be coming to a theater near you. -- By Todd Gilchrist, Jason Guerrasio, Jenni Miller and Nigel Smith
"Like Crazy," "Take Shelter," "Martha Marcy May Marlene," "Pariah." What do these films all have in common? They all premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival. To say that the bar was raised for this year's edition to deliver the indie goods is an understatement.
We're glad to report that 2012 is shaping up to be another great year for the world's most important independent film festival. Just take a look at some of the talent included on the lineup: Kirsten Dunst, Andy Samberg, Elizabeth Olsen, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, Kate Bosworth and director Spike Lee. Now that's enough reason to get excited.
We've worked our way through the massive lineup to bring you our picks for the top 15 films we're most excited for. Get More »
