This week: Wes Anderson's latest heartfelt comedy, "Moonrise Kingdom," chronicles the great romance between two 12-year-old runaways during the summer of 1965.
Also new this week is the animated sequel "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted," the found footage-ish horror flick "Chernobyl Diaries," the Adam Sandler comedy "That's My Boy" and an edition of "Avatar" on Blu-ray 3D that one can buy without it being bundled with a hardware purchase. Get More »
Millions of fans may be eagerly awaiting the release of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" this November, but, no matter how Twihards might try and protest, it's official: The vampire craze is dead.
And the new trailer for "Vamps" might just be the final wooden stake in the coffin. Get More »
This weekend I'm getting a sixpack of antifreeze and duffel bag filled with raw ground beef and going to see "The Expendables 2."
I'm certain I enjoyed the first one (it's a bit of a haze) and if my crumpling into manly tears at the mere sight of the new one's outdoor ads is any indication, I'll have a blast yet again. One thing we must ask, however. Whither the chicks?
I say with full respect and courtesy to the fairer sex, why have you not been included in this battle royale of badassery? Yes, there are some women in the film - Yu Nan will play an agent named Maggie, Charisma Carpenter is back as Statham's g.f. and someone named Amanda Ooms is on hand to give the film some oomph - but where are the female equivalents of the Expendables? Where are the Expendablettes?
If I were in charge of everything (as I will be, eventually) here's who I'd add to the team for "The Expendables 3." Get More »
Put Sigourney Weaver and Robert De Niro together in the same movie and we'd pretty much watch the two do anything at all. Two hours of them sitting around reading magazines and talking about the weather? Sold. But add in a creepy plot, rising stars and the always-compelling Cillian Murphy?
Well, then we'd really have to give the new "Red Lights" trailer the green light. Get More »
In honor of Rihanna making a splashy debut in the ocean-bound blockbuster "Battleship," we're locked, loaded and counting down some of the sexiest screen sirens to handle monster weapons.
That's right, we're bringing out the big guns, in more ways than one, as these scorching hot ladies show us a thing or two about proper marksmanship.
If there's one rule governing the animal kingdom, it's this: You do not mess with Mom. Ever. If you come between a mama and her cub, you will lose. They're the most terrifying force in the animal kingdom, and they'll do anything to protect their babies.
Of course, you don't need science to tell you that. You know Mom can always be counted on to swoop in like a cookie-baking Batman, knock out a bully, and take you home for story time. (That reminds us, have you bought her a present yet?)
Movies may not get a lot right (physics, romance, book adaptations), but for the most part, they do right by moms. Especially tough moms. Cinema is packed with gun-toting, take-no-prisoners, willing-to-die mothers, and they're all so inspiring that we hated cutting it off at 9. But we did, and here are the Baddest Muthas in Movies. Add your own at #10. Get More »
Henry Cavill may be the new "Man of Steel" but until that film comes out in 2013, he's still just an everyday mortal -- which is too bad considering he's about to be neck deep in some seriously heavy s**t courtesy of the one and only Sigourney Weaver.
And if that's not enough to whet your appetite, wait until you see how Bruce Willis figures into the new trailer for "The Cold Light of Day." Get More »
Looking good is one thing. Looking good and kicking ass simultaneously is quite another, as Kate Beckinsale has proved time and time again in the "Underworld" movies. You think wearing that skin-tight leather bodysuit while leaping, running, shooting automatic weapons and beating Lycans to a pulp is easy? Have you ever tried it?
In honor of Beckinsale's newest ass-kicking showcase, "Underworld: Awakening," not to mention former MMA star Gina Carano's buzzed-about turn in "Haywire" -- and just to be sure we don't piss either of them off -- we tip our hats to nine female characters we wouldn't want to cross.
Next to these babes, we'd be toast. Get More »
James Cameron doesn't really like it when people spill the beans about his upcoming movies, even if -- and especially if -- those people are long-time friends and collaborators like Sigourney Weaver. The guy likes to surprise fans, you know? So when Cameron recently read that Weaver had told SFX that she would definitely be appearing in "Avatar 2" despite the fact that her character died in the first film (spoilers!), well, he just couldn't let that pass.
A planned adaptation of Melissa Marr's dark fairy tale "Wicked Lovely" was just dropped by Universal, despite the addition of "American Pyscho" director Mary Harron in the driver's seat. But "Lovely" is in good company -- Universal also recently cut ties with Ron Howard's adaptation of 'The Dark Tower' series and Guillermo del Toro's "At The Mountains of Madness."
Naturally, producers are shopping the story around to other studios -- with a growing audience (the book landed on the New York Times bestseller list) and the attention of a big name like Harron, Marr hasn't given up hope. In fact, she's already picking her dream cast for the eventual movie version. Get More »
