This week: Steven Spielberg directs Daniel Day-Lewis in his Oscar-winning role in "Lincoln" as the 16th President of the United States who spent the last few months of his life making changes that would affect generations of Americans.
Also new this week is the crime drama "Killing Them Softly" with Brad Pitt, the horror sequel "The Collection," the family comedy "Parental Guidance" and Stuart Gordon's cult favorite "From Beyond" on Blu-ray for the first time. Get More »
Once again, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" topped the box office this weekend, bringing in an estimated $17.4 million according to Film.com.
"Skyfall" and "Lincoln" came in second and third, with $17 million and $13.5 million respectively, making this the third weekend in a row those three films have finished in that exact order.
The success of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," "Skyfall" and "Lincoln" comes at the expense of Brad Pitt's new film, "Killing Them Softly," which crashed and burned in its debut, bringing in only $7 million for a disappointing seventh place finish.
For a full rundown of the weekend's box office, head to Film.com.
On a scale from one to full-blown mountain man, Brad Pitt's facial hair appears to be resting at a comfortable 5 on the facial hair scale while he travels to promote his new film, "Killing Them Softly." His current heavy scruff paired with Jesus hair stirred up memories of Pitt facial hair combinations past, from the light scruff and spikes of "Fight Club" to his mid-2002, pre-Angelina full "who is that man on the playground?" beard.
Oh, the Brad Pitts we have known. Check out our gif tracking the different levels of Pitt hair (threat level currently resting at orange), share away, and be sure to share your favorite follicular fashion of Pitt's in the comments.
No one can forget that incredibly sexy scene in "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" where Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie dance the assassin's tango, but one big thing is missing from that scene: The "Killing Them Softly" star's fancy footwork.
It took an eagle eye and an excess of TV's "So You Think You Can Dance" (all in the name of research, of course) but we've realized that while Brad has a knack for eating on the big screen, he has a tendency to get a little jiggy with it on the red carpet.
Starting with ballet — the man is always pointing his toes — and working his way through disco and even Bollywood, here is photographic proof that Brad Pitt may be America's true favorite dancer.
Whether you're a wheelman, the stickup guy or the muscle, everyone has a part to play in the intricate Swiss watch that is a heist. Sometimes jobs go awry, as they do in the new Brad Pitt thriller "Killing Them Softly," which is why we thought we'd put together a comprehensive list of the do's and don't's of armed robbery.
Remember, kids, we're not condoning the numerous monetary and personal rewards of pulling off a heist, not to mention the rush which we understand is thrilling. Get More »
Movie characters may seem more glamorous than you and me, but they've gotta eat. And you know who eats a lot in movies? Brad Pitt. And unlike the rest of us, even in comic moments, he looks good doing it (shocker).
Pitt did a fair amount of eating in his Oscar-nominated turn as Billy Beane in "Moneyball," but he chows down so much in so many movies, we're starting to wonder if the actor just gets hungry on set and brings his lunch into the scene with him. We're just waiting to see how much he ingests in "Killing Them Softly," out this week. Get More »
You'd think that a new Brad Pitt film about gritty hitmen doing their dirty deeds would be the kind of thing that would generate a lot of buzz, but so far, there has been curiously little chatter about "Killing Them Softly," even though it opens this Friday. Heck, it hasn't even cracked the top 25 on our MovieTracker. Maybe they should have called it "Killing Them Loudly" instead.
All of which explains why there's a brand new trailer for "Killing Them Softly" making the rounds.
Hey, fans have to start watching something other than "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" at some point, right? Get More »
