This week: Director J.A. Bayona's gut-wrenching "The Impossible" starring Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts in her Oscar-nominated role tells the true story of one family's struggle for survival after the 2004 tsunami that devastated Thailand and much of the surrounding region.
Also new this week is the troubled "Gangster Squad" with Sean Penn, Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling; Gus Van Sant's "Promised Land" with Matt Damon and John Krasinski; and the Blu-ray 3D debut of the original "Jurassic Park." Get More »
Think for a few seconds, if you will, about your grandparents. Chances are you have some memories from when you were a child, perhaps of your grandfather bouncing you on his knee or your grandmother baking you a pie. Good memories. Now imagine for a moment that someone in Hollywood has decided to make a balls-out action movie with your beloved grandparent at the center of it, guns blazing.
That would be totally bizarre, right? Well, now you have an idea how the granddaughter of real life "Gangster Squad" leader John O'Mara is feeling right now — and she's decided to share those feelings in a brand new blog. Get More »
All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• Ellen Page will be starring in "Into the Forest," the story of two teenage sisters living in rural Northern California as society seems to decay and collapse around them. As if that should alarm the girl who saw buildings fold in on themselves and stuff in "Inception." [The Playlist]
• Another thesp is packing his bags for "Sin City." Josh Brolin, who appeared in director Robert Rodriguez's "Planet Terror," will be playing the central role of Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the original film) in "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For." Now how about some casting news on the film's femme fatale, Ava Lord, already? [MovieWeb] Get More »
There comes a time in every girl's life when she must decide which hard-bitten-yet-handsome gentleman from an upcoming cop drama she'd most like to take home to Mom and Dad. (Isn't there?) Now that the Jan. 11 release date of "Gangster Squad" is upon us, it's time to make the call: Is it Nick Nolte who will wait for you at the end of the
perp walk aisle? Josh Brolin whose detective skills will equip him for a very, ahem, intimate inspection? Ryan Gosling who will meet a noir-style, gritty end at the barrel of a gun? (Or at the bottom of a long drop, not that we've thought about it too much.)
This week: Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones return as Agents J and K, respectively, in "Men in Black 3." In this long-awaited time-traveling sequel we meet a young Agent K, played to perfection by Josh Brolin.
Also new this week is the Prohibition drama "Lawless," Whitney Houston's last performance in "Sparkle," the spooky stop-motion animated feature "ParaNorman," and the modern-dance showcase "Step Up Revolution." Get More »
After the terrible tragedy in Aurora, Colorado this summer that left 12 audiences members dead at a screening of "The Dark Knight Rises," the folks behind the upcoming film "Gangster Squad" were faced with a dilemma as one of the main sequences in the film revolved around gangsters opening fire inside a crowded theater. What could they do?
Well, now the brand new trailer for the revised version of "Gangster Squad" is here and it features a brilliant answer: A whole lot more Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.
Winona Ryder gets on the hog, our new Oldboy goes "Crazy" and Kenny Powers gets serious in this past week's casting news.
Ryder will soon be trying on some leather accessories as she signs on to play a former biker chick in "Homefront," according to Heat Vision. The film makes for a rare action movie role for Ryder, who will be playing the companion to a sleazy meth dealer (James Franco) who interferes with the quiet life being sought after by an ex-DEA agent (Jason Statham). Sylvester Stallone wrote the script, with Gary Fleder set to direct. Get More »
This poll will close on Aug. 30, 2012, at 12 p.m. ET
There was nary an alien at the New York City premiere of "Men in Black III" (at least none that we know of — then again, Donald Trump was there, and we've always had a funny feeling about him …). However, Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin and many more human-types were on hand to protect us from the scum of the universe as they walked the red carpet at the Ziegfeld Theater.
Check out our collection of photos from the premiere and rest easy knowing that the "Men in Black" are back on patrol as of May 25.
Director Barry Sonnenfeld returns to the popular sci-fi comedy franchise he helped shape with "Men in Black III," the long-awaited sequel that reunites Will Smith's Agent J and Tommy Lee Jones's Agent K -- two Men in Black who monitor and control alien activity on Earth. J must go back in time to 1969 to avert a global extraterrestrial catastrophe and meets up with a young K, played with eerie verisimilitude by Josh Brolin.
The self-effacing Sonnenfeld is the first to admit that 2002's "Men in Black II" had some faults, but he insists that the current sequel is much closer in tone to the 1997 blockbuster original we all enjoyed. We asked Sonnenfeld about "Men in Black III"'s long journey to the screen, what happened to Frank the pug, and what the director would do differently to "Men in Black II" if he could travel back in time.
