If there was ever a more ambitious film than "The Butler," we have yet to discover it.
"Precious" director Lee Daniels efforts to recapitulate — through the real-life eyes of a lone, stolid White House butler — pretty much the entire twentieth century as it related to the American Civil Rights Movement. With a cast list that reads like a flat-out roll call for the Walk of Fame, Daniels presents the working life of Cecil Gaines (real name: Eugene Allen), a man who served eight consecutive U.S. presidents during his career and witnessed history being made first-hand.
The first trailer for "The Butler" has now been released, and boy oh boy are we impressed with all the acute caricaturing going down here ... and all the feels we feel. Get More »
We've been waiting to see Jennifer Hudson in her first truly grand starring role since her astonishing debut in "Dreamgirls" for quite some time. Unfortunately, Canada's going to get to see it first ... but there is now a "Winnie" trailer to give us a glimpse of what's in store.
Hudson is poised to enter the Hollywood big leagues with her portrayal of Nomzamo Winfreda Madikizela, a poor social worker who went on to win the heart of "the most dangerous man in South Africa," Nelson Mandela (Terrence Howard, a long way from Rhodey in "Iron Man"). Get More »
This week: With the "Harry Potter" franchise behind him, Daniel Radcliffe faces a turn-of-the-century ghost that is killing a small village's children in the horror film "The Woman in Black."
Also new this week are Reese Witherspoon at the center of a Tom Hardy/Chris Pine love sandwich in "This Means War," the World War II drama "Red Tails" and the Blu-ray debut of the animated Japanese classic "Castle in the Sky." Get More »
Think you've had enough World War II movies? You haven't seen one from the viewpoint of The Tuskegee Airmen, the real-life heroes in "Red Tails." These daring young African American men became the first all-black fighter pilot unit in the United States Air Force, and proved their worth by being some of the best damn flying aces there were.
George Lucas funded this $100-million blockbuster out of his own pocket (he's rich, you know) as a tribute to these trailblazing men, and the film is a nonstop thrill ride. Get More »
A bunch of World War II flying aces stepped out on the red carpet on Tuesday night as the cast and crew of "Red Tails" attended the film's New York City premiere.
Ne-Yo, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Method Man, Spike Lee, James Earl Jones and even George Lucas himself were at the Ziegfeld Theater to celebrate the film that showcases the Tuskegee Airmen, a group of African American U.S. pilots that were suddenly called into service after being kept mostly on the ground during the war.
Check out our gallery of pics from the premiere and go flying with "Red Tails" when it hits theaters on Jan. 20.
Robert Redford sure knows how to put together a pretty amazing "Company."
The Hollywood veteran continues to attract A-list talent as even more skilled thespians have been recruited for his political thriller, "The Company You Keep," according to Variety.
Anna Kendrick, who's currently breaking hearts in theaters in "50/50," has joined the cast, along with Terrence Howard, Brendan Gleeson and Sam Elliott. The quartet joins the already impressive line-up of Shia LaBeouf, Brit Marling, Nick Nolte, Susan Sarandon, Richard Jenkins, Julie Christie, Stephen Root, Stanley Tucci, Chris Cooper and, of course, Redford himself.

The name of the movie is "The Green Hornet," but everyone knows that the title character isn't the coolest costumed cat to appear in Michel Gondry's new flick.
That honor goes to Kato (Jay Chou), ostensibly the Green Hornet's driver and sidekick, but also a kung-fu badass capable of delivering the smackdown to evil wherever he finds it.
He's just the latest entrant in a lineup of superhero second bananas who shine as brightly as the guys they back up, so join us as we salute the guys behind the guys. Get More »
Hot on the heels of the trailer for the new "Winnie the Pooh" movie comes the teaser for "Winnie," a biopic of Winnie Mandela, former wife of South African president Nelson Mandela. And, though there are no Pooh bears in sight, it certainly is a hunny of a story.
Jennifer Hudson has landed herself another dream role, as the film charts Winnie's life from infancy to key figure in the fight to end apartheid. Get More »
