Doesn't it kinda seem like Michelle Williams has always been famous? After all, despite the fact that she's only 32, Williams -- whose latest film is the big-budget prequel "Oz the Great and Powerful" -- has been appearing in movies and on television for nearly 20 years, earning three Oscar nominations for films like "My Week with Marilyn" and "Brokeback Mountain." She is, as they say, big time.
But hard as it is to remember, there was a point before she was famous — and we've got the goofy sitcom clip to prove it. Get More »
Michelle Williams isn't human, right? She can't be — no real person above the age of five is that adorable. Part fairy, maybe?
Whatever she is, she's as tragically lovely now (in "Take This Waltz," "Blue Valentine," "My Week With Marilyn," etc.) as she was the first time we saw her (as a bona fide teenager in "Dawson's Creek," way back in '98). Check out these pixie pics of the cutest actress in Hollywood ... and the rest of the mortal realm.
In "Take This Waltz," Margot (Michelle Williams) has a good life. She’s happily married to Lou (Seth Rogen), the successful author of a chicken cookbook, and they’re living comfortably. If you were a fly on the wall in their home, you’d assume this young couple was so passionate for each other that their young romance would last 'till death do them part. But something soon seems off with Margot. She’s empty inside.
Coming home from a business trip, she meets Daniel (Luke Kirby), a passionate painter who makes ends meet as a rickshaw driver. Margot and Daniel immediately hit it off, transcending into an unconventional friendship farther than she and Lou could ever reach. She starts to fall for Daniel, but fights -- hard -- to resist the temptation of getting physically and mentally involved with another man. As the days go by, the temptation gets harder and the emptiness grows. "Take This Waltz" is a remarkable, offbeat love story about how not all perfect romances have a fairy tale beginning or end.

Fans of Michelle Williams, the ones who've followed her career from the over-articulate rants of "Dawson's Creek" to her Oscar-nominated performance in "My Week With Marilyn," want to believe the actress is like so many of the roles she chooses: intelligent, thoughtful, soft-spoken and sensitive.
Rest easy, everyone. She is.
It helps that she's clearly in love with her new movie "Take This Waltz;" when we met to discuss the astute relationship drama co-starring Seth Rogen, Williams had plenty to say about growing up, settling down and learning that "nice guys" aren't always the prize they're supposed to be. Get More »
'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.

It's Year 11 for the Tribeca Film Festival, and it looks like the fest created by Robert De Niro is hitting its stride.
The 11-day event, which takes place April 18-29, has always been known for its flashy red- carpet premieres (this year's fest is bookended with the comedy "The Five-Year Engagement" and Marvel's latest “The Avengers”) and fun family fare (free Drive In screenings of "Jaws" and "The Goonies"). Tribeca is also branching out into the online world: For its second year, the festival will screen a handful of titles from this year's Tribeca Online Film Festival as well as stream some of its panels.
But if you like to watch your movies the old-fashioned way (in the theater), here are 15 titles from this year's fest that we think you should check out. Get More »
Michelle Williams is just totally amazeballs.
Seriously, after watching her performances in films like "My Week with Marilyn" (Oscar nomination), "Blue Valentine" (Oscar nomination) or "Brokeback Mountain" (Oscar... you get the drift), we'll pretty much follow her anywhere at this point. Which is just one reason we're so happy to see the trailer for her newest indie film.
It's that time of the year again. With summer officially over and awards season brewing, the Toronto International Film Festival launches its assault on the moviegoing masses of the world.
And what an assault it's going to be. From Ryan Gosling putting the pedal to the medal in "Drive" to George Clooney breaking hearts in "The Descendants," to both of them starring in the political drama "The Ides of March," this year's edition promises to be a doozy with a little bit of something for everyone.
Find out what's playing this year by checking out our rundown of the 15 films we're most looking forward to seeing at the festival. Get More »
