This week: Colin Farrell plays a screenwriter who gets an unexpected violent cure for his writer's block in "Seven Psychopaths," a pitch-black British comedy co-starring Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Woody Harrelson.
"Taken 2" held off a crowded field of new movies to retain its box office crown, as according to Film.com the Liam Neeson revenge fantasy earned a solid $22.5 million.
That was just enough to take out Ben Affleck's critically acclaimed thriller "Argo" ($20.1 million) and Ethan Hawke's creepy horror show "Sinister" ($18.3 million). Kevin James' MMA comedy "Here Comes the Boom," meanwhile, got caught in its own chokehold and managed just $12 million for a fifth place debut.

Selena Gomez is, for now, best known as the former teen star of Disney's "Wizards of Waverly Place" and the current star of Justin Bieber's love life. But with upcoming roles in everything from family fare to a raunchy college comedy, Gomez, 20, looks to be making a major play for her triple-threat talents to propel her from Disney teen queen and gossip generator to major movie star.
Appearing in a Disney or Nickelodeon show often bestows as many blessings as curses for young actors. Once they perfect their goodie-goodie roles tailored for tweens and younger audiences, teen actors are often unable to break into more mature projects that will get them taken seriously as an actor. Just ask Hannah Montana, a.k.a. Miley Cyrus, whose latest film, "LOL," crashed straight to video, her latest setback since "The Last Song" in her effort to nail another plum star vehicle. Get More »
With films like "Slumdog Millionaire" and "The King's Speech" having made their international debuts at the fest, the movies showing this year are among those we can't wait to see this fall — in fact, we listed 20 of them before TIFF even kicked off.
So, how did they fare? Well, here's what the reviewers from our sister site, Film.com, had to say... Get More »
As much as we love all that summer has to offer, fall is where it's at for true cinephiles. The movie lover's season officially kicks off (according to us, anyway) the same day the annual Toronto International Festival launches every year in early September.
As has been the case for several years now, Toronto serves as a platform for studios to launch their Oscar hopefuls and for smaller indies to find a home (and maybe some awards down the line). "The King's Speech," "Slumdog Millionaire," "Precious" and "The Artist" all played at the festival before going on to Oscar glory while films like "Beginners," "Killer Joe" and "Your Sister's Sister," all came into the event without a distributor, and left with one.

A travel advisory has just been issued for guests planning to stay at the "Hotel Transylvania," because, based on the brand new trailer, it appears that you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.
Having Dracula as the manager kind of has that effect. Get More »
In a kind of meta teen rebellion, Miley Cyrus has ditched the role of Drac's daughter in Adam Sandler's animated film "Hotel Transylvania."
E! Online first reported Miley Cyrus' sudden departure. While some tongues were wagging that Cyrus was more invested in partying than working, another source said, "Cyrus simply decided to take some more time to figure out what her next move in the movies should be."
Considering she's got at least two coming out in 2012, that's sort of understandable. Get More »
Miley Cyrus wants to suck your blood.
The "Hannah Montana" star will get her vampire on as she's signed on to voice the role of Dracula's daughter, Mavis, in the animated feature, "Hotel Transylvania," according to Inside Movies.
"Hotel Transylvania" follows Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler) as he builds the titular resort for all manner of monsters as a way of keeping Mavis from venturing out into the real world. Things get complicated (and, we're assuming, romantic) when a non-monster (voiced by Andy Samberg) ends up at the hotel. Get More »
Adam Sandler is about to become a count.
While horror purists might be, well, horrified by the news, Sony has announced that Mr. "Grown Ups" himself will be voicing none other than Count Dracula in the upcoming 3-D animated family comedy, "Hotel Transylvania."
In a "why didn't I think of that" plot description, Variety reports that "Hotel Transylvania" is "Dracula's lavish, five-stake resort where monsters and their families can live it up, free from meddling humans." Genius, right? Famed animator Genndy Tartakovsky ("Star Wars: Clone Wars," "Dexter's Laboratory") is directing so we're betting that there will be plenty for the real grown-ups as well. Get More »
