This week: See how Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sully (John Goodman) first met in college in "Monsters University," Pixar's animated prequel to "Monsters, Inc."
Also new this week is "R.I.P.D.," a supernatural comedy starring Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds as two cops tasked with managing ghostly activity on Earth, and "Byzantium," Neil Jordan's atmospheric vampire film starring Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton. Get More »
Oh, how Wes Anderson does thrill and bewilder at the very same time.
On the one hand, the ultra wry, witty and more importantly original writing-directing style of the "Moonrise Kingdom" and "The Royal Tenenbaums" mastermind is like a homing device for Hollywood's top tier talent (this time, including Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Tilda Swinton, Willem Dafoe and Jason Schwartzman, among many others). But on the other, let's be honest. You've gotta be pretty with it to make heads or tails of what's happening half the time lest you miss out on some super hip joke or innuendo.
This week: James Franco turns in one of the best performances of his career as a drug and arms dealer who corrupts four vacationing coeds in "Spring Breakers," the latest from director Harmony Korine.
Also new this week is the comedy "Admission" starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, the Stephenie Meyer YA adaptation "The Host" and the thriller "Dead Man Down" with Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace. Get More »
Until last week, I thought Saoirse Ronan's name was pronounced "Swar-reese Ronan," to the point that, when I would mention to anyone that I was in the process of creating this article, I would say with a vaguely subtle air of sanctimony, "It's Hollywood's unpronounceable names — like that girl from 'The Lovely Bones,' Swar-reese Ronan."
Now this is more like it!
We posted a trailer of Neil Jordan's new vampire fable, "Byzantium," and we have to say it didn't do much for us. We dig Jordan, but he's frustratingly (and lovingly, sure) hit-or-miss, and the trailer made "Byzantium" look more like "In Dreams" (ugh) than "Interview with the Vampire" (awesome).
Now, Yahoo! Movies UK has posted a new international trailer for the film, and we like this one much better. It makes the movie actually look, you know, interesting. And kind of hot. And filled with vampire-ish goings-on. You know, all the stuff that makes us want to see a movie.
"Byzantium" tells the tale of a mother/daughter vampire duo (Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan) who find themselves at a remote seaside town, where their involvement with a handsome stranger (Caleb Landry Jones) threatens to tear apart their already delicate existence. Lots of passionate European things ensue, often involving a lot of blood.
Check out the gorgeous creatures of the night above. "Byzantium" opens June 28.
The big screen adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's bestselling novel "The Host" only just hit theaters today, but there's one thing many Twihards and non-Twihards alike can already agree on: They hate it.
Of course, most of the haters not only haven't seen the movie yet, but they haven't read the book, either. Usually we'd suggest waiting to pass judgment until after you've actually read the book or seen the movie and developed an informed opinion. But on the other hand, what fun would that be? Get More »
"The Host" hits theaters this week, and for many fans it's a chance to see whether the popular Stephanie Meyer novel can become a pop culture phenomenon like "The Twilight Saga" did before it.
But for other film buffs, "The Host" represents something else: The continuing development of star Saoirse Ronan, who famously earned an Oscar nomination for 2007's "Atonement" at the age of 13. Will "The Host" finally turn her into an A-lister and ensure that she avoids the child star curse ... or will she become the latest of Oscar's children to experience their biggest career highlight before being legally able to drive?

People are always complaining about how much Americans suck at doing accents, whether it's Kevin Costner as "Robin Hood" or Keanu Reeves seemingly coming off a heroin addiction in "Bram Stoker's Dracula." And we do suck sometimes, yes.
However, we want to at least even the playing field a little by pointing out some bafflingly bad American accents perpetrated by thesps from overseas. Europe and Australia may have the best acting academies and such, but not every graduate is as versatile as they should be, starting with a certain Gerard Butler from this past weekend's "Olympus Has Fallen."

Well, here's another movie that makes a strong case for being stalked and ravaged by a vampire as the sweetest way to go possible.
"Interview with the Vampire" director Neil Jordan returns for another bloodsucking tale of gorgeous creatures of the night with "Byzantium," a film that trumps its awkward title with a a lot of delectable undead eye candy. Get More »
Step aside, vampires and werewolves — 2013 marks the year of the alien takeover with "The Host."
The upcoming adaptation of "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer's sci-fi novel centers around Melanie (Saoirse Ronan), a human serving as a host for Wanderer, one of the alien Souls that have invaded Earth. Wanderer struggles to maintain power over Melanie, whose strong emotions and memories cause friction between body and soul. Eventually, they fall for the same human guy — played by Max Irons. Diane Kruger is The Seeker, the nasty alien threatening to put a stop to the freaky love triangle.
The film doesn't hit theaters until March 29, 2013, but they're releasing images now. Check out today's new look at Wanda.
