This week: Milla Jovovich goes to the heart of the Umbrella Corporation to stop the global zombie epidemic in "Resident Evil: Retribution," the fifth movie in the popular sci-fi action series that sees the return of original "Resident Evil" badass Michelle Rodriguez.
Also new this week is the Southern-fried pitch-black comedy "Killer Joe" starring Matthew McConaughey, the bike-messenger thriller "Premium Rush" with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the romantic drama "The Words" with Bradley Cooper and the financial thriller "Arbitrage" with Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon.

"The Expendables 2" won the box office for the second weekend in a row with just $13.5 million, according to Film.com, thanks mostly to one of the weakest crop of new releases in recent memory.
Just how bad was it? Not one of the new releases managed to make even $7 million, allowing "The Bourne Legacy" to earn second spot with only $9.3 million. Joseph Gordon-Levitt's "Premium Rush," Kristen Bell's "Hit and Run" and Ashley Greene's "The Apparition" were among the new films that crashed and burned.
"'[The] Shawshank Redemption.' No matter what scene you jump in, you're just automatically sucked into the story. It doesn't matter if it's the beginning, the middle or even the end, you're just as interested as you would be if you watched from the beginning. Everything about it is so good!"
In his new film, "Premium Rush," which hits theaters this weekend, Joseph Gordon-Levitt goes on an adrenaline-induced bike ride as a messenger delivering more than just any ordinary package. Playing Nick Emery, the actor takes to the streets of NYC on a wild chase around Manhattan when he picks up an envelope of valuable interest to one of the city's dirty cops.
But before he was everyone's favorite Joe, Gordon-Levitt started his career in television. Get More »
DC nerds (by which I mean comic book fans, not policy wonks) are currently in a wait-and-see period. All eyes are on next year's "Man of Steel" to see if that somehow perpetuates a DC Movie Universe. One possible future includes a string of films jumpstarted by the Christopher Nolan movies. If things continue linearly from "The Dark Knight Rises" it means we may see Joseph Gordon-Levitt zipping across the night skies of Gotham as Batman. Or Nightwing. Or Robin. Or maybe we won't see him at all.
As you can see, where there are Infinite Earths, there is Crisis. The good news is this: if you want to see JGL as a superhero you don't have to wait for the Yellow Sun to align perfectly with the Hollywood studio system. You can go see "Premium Rush" this weekend. Get More »
To be a top-notch New York City bike messenger takes speed, skill, and a willingness to ignore subtle annoyances like traffic lights, pedestrians, oncoming cars, etc. This goes double if you're handling a package that's a "Premium Rush," as Joseph Gordon-Levitt does in the new action thriller from superstar screenwriter David Koepp ("Jurassic Park," "Spider-Man").
Gordon-Levitt plays adrenaline junky delivery boy Nick Emery, who's being pursued by a crooked cop named Bobby (badguy du jour Michael Shannon) for the special delivery he has on him. Watch him pedal for his life in the clips below. Get More »
Summer isn't just the season for blockbusters. It's also the time of beefcakes. Oh sure, good-looking men abound in movies all year, but there's something about the hottest months that really brings them out, takes off their shirts, and makes them run, leap, and roll in slow motion.
This year seems especially easy on the eyes. We have the usual slate of superheroes (all of whom look fantastic in their capes and codpieces), soldiers and assassins, but with the extra spice of an android, a vampire, a medieval warrior, and a whole stable of male strippers. Any one of those is enough to make the season, but the combination is enough to make you glad theaters are air conditioned.
For now, here's a preview of summer's sexiest men to keep you feeling the heat until May and beyond.
What would a blockbuster be without a damsel in distress to save, or a femme fatale to fight? A whole lot less fabulous, that's what.
Throughout the world, the summer movies season is synonymous with chiseled male champions braving larger-than-life adventures. But judging by the crop of broad comedies and action extravaganzas being offered up in the coming months, it looks like the ladies may give their A-list counterparts of the opposite sex a run for their money.
Have a look at 20 starlets who are going to steal the cinematic spotlight.
'Tis the season for massive explosions and people running from them.
Summer movies are coming, and iconic superheroes will dominate as "Dark Knight Rises," "Avengers," and "The Amazing Spider-Man" duke it out for box office supremacy, while the sci-fi derby includes fresh takes on the "Alien" saga ("Prometheus") and Philip K. Dick ("Total Recall"), plus a return visit to MIB headquarters.
We count down the biggest and best blockbusters for beating the summer heat. Get More »
Quentin Tarantino's next film, "Django Unchained," has been the subject of a ton of speculation ever since copies of the script mysteriously landed in inboxes of journalists in May. Everyone's kept a close eye on casting news, and so far QT has lined up an impressive crew that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Kurt Russell, Jamie Foxx, Don Johnson, Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz.
The newest addition could be hotshot Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who made us laugh and cry and laugh again in "50/50." JGL is currently hard at work in "The Dark Knight Rises" and has two new movies in the can -- the NYC bike messenger thriller "Premium Rush" and the heavily anticipated Rian Johnson sci-fi film "Looper."
However, being the busy boy he is, he might have to juggle some projects to join this group of misfits for QT's wild ride. Right now, it's not quite clear who he'd play and if this fresh-faced young actor will take on a role that gets down and dirty. Get More »
