This week: Tom Hanks and Halle Berry play several different characters over many lifetimes in the beyond-ambitious time-traversing think piece "Cloud Atlas," written and directed by the Wachowski siblings and Tom Tykwer.
Also new this week is horror icon Leatherface's return in the sequel "Texas Chainsaw 3D," Charlie Sheen in Roman Coppola's comedy "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III" and a new mastered-in-4K Blu-ray of "Ghostbusters" that is optimized for Ultra HD TVs. Get More »
Among circumstances that are devastating for you and awesome for everyone else, having a hot mom ranks near the top.
If it's you with the hot mom, there's nothing positive about it. You are the kid with the hot mom. Your friends could be asexual boy scouts and they'll still talk about how hot your mom is with relative frequency.
If it's your friend with the hot mom? A+! Congratulations! What a life bonus!
The children of the following ten movie characters have had to deal with a lot. Their (fictional) moms are incredibly sexy. Let's discuss. Get More »
Practically every mega-star in Hollywood has gotten animated.
Tom Hanks was a toy. George Clooney was a fox. Eddie Murphy was an ass a donkey. And in the prehistoric adventure "The Croods," Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds play a cavegirl, a caveman and a caveboy, respectively.
We wondered what these stars would look like as animated people rather than as, you know, animals and neanderthals and stuff. Thanks to these 17 portraits, we've replaced our wondering with works of art. Get More »
Halle Berry's new thriller "The Call" has a pretty simple premise: a gal is kidnapped but manages to make a 911 call that is answered by Berry's emergency operator. And then, you know, all hell breaks loose.
Sounds pretty harrowing, right? But when it comes to frightening, dangerous and downright creepy phone calls, Hollywood history is filled with examples even more extreme. So in honor of Berry and "The Call," we thought this would be a perfect time to look at the 5 Worst Phone Calls in Movie History. Get More »

Isn't it interesting how much better comic book movie writing has become since those innocent, what-the-hell-are-we-doing early days? Get More »
You may or may not know that "Movie 43," the movie starring everyone you know and directed by everyone else, was seen by close to no one, making $5 million this weekend and finishing in a tie for sixth place at the box office. Disappointing, to be sure, and as is often the case when your movie is poorly reviewed and makes no money, now comes the 20/20 hindsight backtracking, courtesy of executive producer Peter Farrelly.
As our good buds at CinemaBlend report, Farrelly admits that his stars were pretty much guilted into being in the film. "They clearly wanted out! But we wouldn't let them." His strategy? "Wait for them. Shoot when they want to shoot. Guilt them to death." Get More »
What jerk would kidnap the cute kid from "Little Miss Sunshine"?
It's a cruel world filled with rampaging serial killers in "The Call," though luckily Halle Berry is on the case to take on evil as only a 911 dispatcher can.
In the new thriller from director Brad Anderson, Berry plays a veteran emergency operator who inadvertently causes the death of a caller, a mistake from which she looks to be redeemed when a kidnapping situation (involving "Little Miss Sunshine" herself, Abigail Breslin) once again puts her in contact with the killer.

Judd Apatow's new comedy, "This Is 40," presents the many challenges that come with middle age, such as being attractive, having amusing and dedicated friends and wallowing in complete financial stability.
It's not all mundane tedium, though — sometimes you also just go crazy and get high in hotel rooms and caress Megan Fox's pert, twentysomething breasts.
Let's face it — something about being rich and famous kind of slows down the aging process that us regular schmoes have to contend with. Here are a few celebrity types who make 40 look like the new 25.
Berry might seem to have it all: ageless beauty, one adorable daughter, an Oscar and a nice little engagement bauble from French actor Olivier Martinez. But, when it comes to affairs of the heart, she's just another girl (cue the "Notting Hill" references).
The twice-divorced beauty queen-turned-actress' most recent split — from model Gabriel Aubry, the father of her daughter Nahla — was made into quite a media spectacle indeed, and she still seems to be a little bitter about the harsh lessons life's dealt her in the romantic arena. Get More »
"Matrix" directors Lana and Andy Wachowski, along with "Run Lola Run" filmmaker Tom Tykwer, have crafted a big, tasty slice of WTF pie in the form of their new movie epic "Cloud Atlas." The film breaks boundaries both in its narrative (interweaving six separate stories of different genres) and through its performers (the actors play multiple roles of different age, race and gender), all the while somehow remaining not just coherent but wildly entertaining. Who'd a thunk it?
While the end credits reveal who played which characters — leading to some audible gasps from the audience — we thought we'd fill you in on just who each of these actors appear as and how much Silly Putty was applied to achieve this.
