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 »

Who knew Spidey could be such a convincing existentialist?
Rescued from the dusty shelves at the Weinstein Company's island of misfit movies, Jacob Aaron Estes' 2011 Sundance Film Festival debut "The Details" has finally gotten a proper (albeit "unofficial") trailer, and all we can say is "metaphors much?"
In the dark comedy, Tobey Maguire stars opposite "The Hunger Games" star Elizabeth Banks as a one-half of a disillusioned married couple which suffers from pests which are not just tearing up their yard but also nimbly bringing to light the desolation of their marriage. Get More »

AMC is fast becoming the (un)official home of the swinging '60s.
Word on the street is that the network, best known for its hit drama "Mad Men," is currently developing a series adaptation of the 1990 Martin Scorsese cult classic "Goodfellas." (You know, the mob movie where Ray Liotta stops doing his homework, gets "made" and marries Lorraine Bracco.) Anyway, the movie was nominated for six Oscars — and won one — so it got something right.

Poor Channing Tatum -- so young, and yet so haunted.
The sins of the past come a'callin' in "The Son of No One," the crime thriller that premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival.
Dito Montiel's drama follows a young police officer (Tatum) who gets mixed up in a series of unsolved murders, some rather scandalous skeletons that his mentor and superior officer (Al Pacino) would rather keep in the precinct's closet. Things get more personal -- and dangerous -- when Tatum's family is targeted by sinister forces. Get More »
New York is coming to Park City.
