Until last week, I thought Saoirse Ronan's name was pronounced "Swar-reese Ronan," to the point that, when I would mention to anyone that I was in the process of creating this article, I would say with a vaguely subtle air of sanctimony, "It's Hollywood's unpronounceable names — like that girl from 'The Lovely Bones,' Swar-reese Ronan."
Christopher Nolan's Batman series will reach its zenith this weekend when the capper on the trilogy, "The Dark Knight Rises," blasts its way into the geekosphere.
All you need to do to rise to the occasion is to have watched the previous two films, "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight," about a thousand times like we have… or simply read our easily absorbed recap below.
Think of it as Reader's Digest, but with more grappling hooks. Get More »
It's a fact, proven time and again at the box office: You can't have a good superhero movie without a great villain at the heart of it. And nobody has as many cool villains as Batman; with characters like The Joker, The Riddler and The Penguin available, Christopher Nolan pretty much had his pick of the litter when it came time to create "The Dark Knight Rises."
Yet despite all the much bigger names, Nolan decided to go with a relatively obscure villain from the comics, Bane. So what's so great about Bane that made him the pick over his more famous peers? And what other dastardly foes can you expect to see in "The Dark Knight Rises?" Here's everything you need to know about the dark side of Gotham, thanks to our guide to the villains of "The Dark Knight Rises." Get More »
Put Sigourney Weaver and Robert De Niro together in the same movie and we'd pretty much watch the two do anything at all. Two hours of them sitting around reading magazines and talking about the weather? Sold. But add in a creepy plot, rising stars and the always-compelling Cillian Murphy?
Well, then we'd really have to give the new "Red Lights" trailer the green light. Get More »
Roger Daltrey used to wish that "I hope I die before I get old." His wish would have been granted in the Justin Timberlake futuristic sci-fi movie "In Time," in which everyone older than 25 dies unless they can buy time, which has become the new commodity. ("Buy time"? Get it?)
In this exclusive deleted scene from the movie, Cillian Murphy slips on the villain mask once again to play timekeeper Raymond Leon, a cop who chases down stolen time. Here, he questions a woman over the suspicious amount of time she's displaying. "It was a gift," she tells the dubious Murphy, proving that time, indeed, is on her side.
With the addition of dreamy Magneto Michael Fassbender, Brendan Gleeson's "At-Swim-Two Birds" is threatening to be crushed under the weight of its delightfully broody cast.
Fassbender, who will be appearing as a kinky Carl Jung in David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method," has signed on to star alongside Cillian Murphy, Gabriel Byrne, and Colin Farrell in Gleeson's adaptation of the revered Irish novel.
Gleeson's had his "Mad Eye" on making Flann O'Brien's book a movie for years, and finally secured funds for the flick this past weekend, as well as the toothy Mr. Fassbender. According to the BBC, this 1939 book gets all meta on the reader when its young protagonist finds himself at the mercy of the characters he's created. It will be very interesting to see how this first-time director takes on this unwieldy but awesome tale that was far ahead of its time. Get More »
Three solid actors, one tiny house in the middle of nowhere and a global epidemic forcing them to stay indoors. All the pieces you need for something truly terrifying.
That's the setup for first-time director Carl Tibbetts' film "Retreat," a new thriller starring Cillian Murphy, Thandie Newton and Jamie Bell. A trailer for the movie , which has been carefully flying under the radar, has popped up on YouTube (found via FirstShowing) and is brimming with tension and suspicious activity. Everything and nothing is clear with this trailer -- but what goes down will scare the heck out of you. Get More »
Really, who doesn't love a man in drag?
From Tyler Perry and Robin Williams to those kooky kids at Harvard who put on the annual Hasty Pudding silliness, a dude in dainty duds is often the cause of a good laugh, an occasional heartfelt moment and even some family-oriented warm fuzzies.
With "Big Momma's: Like Father, Like Son" hitting theaters this week – and "Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family" arriving in April – we're counting down the most convincing male movie cross-dressers from the utterly ridiculous sight gags to the jaw-droppingly feminine. Get More »
Quick question: if "TRON: Legacy" counts as a sequel to "TRON" even though it was filmed 28 years later, what would the sequel to "TRON: Legacy" be? A threequel? It may sound like semantics, but by the sounds of things we're going to need to figure it out pretty soon, because if you listen to star Olivia Wilde, that third 'TRON' movie is definitely on the way.
This courtesy of MTV, which spoke to the talented hottie who plays the computerized lifeform Quorra in "TRON: Legacy" -- and got her to reveal all of her secret plans for the next "TRON" film.
"I want to see her whispering to laptops and hugging toasters," Wilde told MTV. "There's a whole other chapter ahead." Get More »
