This week: Tom Hanks and Halle Berry play several different characters over many lifetimes in the beyond-ambitious time-traversing think piece "Cloud Atlas," written and directed by the Wachowski siblings and Tom Tykwer.
Also new this week is horror icon Leatherface's return in the sequel "Texas Chainsaw 3D," Charlie Sheen in Roman Coppola's comedy "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III" and a new mastered-in-4K Blu-ray of "Ghostbusters" that is optimized for Ultra HD TVs. Get More »
In a reminder that you should never count out a maniac wielding a chainsaw, "Texas Chainsaw 3D" overturned the applecart at the box office this weekend, topping the charts with an estimated $23 million according to Film.com.
That meant that returning hits "Django Unchained" ($20.1 million), "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" ($17.5 million) and "Les Misérables" ($16.1 million) were all bumped down a spot. "Texas Chainsaw's" reign looks to be short lived, though, with "Gangster Squad" and "Zero Dark Thirty" both scheduled to go nationwide next weekend.
For a full rundown of this week's figures, including numbers for comedies "Parental Guidance" and "This Is 40" as well as the Matt Damon release "Promised Land," head to Film.com.
"Texas Chainsaw 3D" is 2013's inaugural sequel in a year chock full of them (29 in all). With this much franchise volume in one year, it's good to keep some perspective in terms of which series we're primed for ... and which ones shouldn't have had a first movie to begin with.
From the bad to the rad, here's our rundown of all the follow-ups fans have been clamoring for — or haven't, as the case may be. Prioritize your sequel viewing, people. Get More »

Ah, 2013. Breathe in that sweet, fresh, new year air. You're walking in a winter wonderland. Everything is new. A sense of possibility! A sense of having no clue what any of these January releases are about.
It's true: We've all been so wrapped up in hustling to see November and December's awards contenders before Hollywood's sparkliest posse gathers to repeatedly congratulate its members that we totally forgot that there are new movies coming out. "'Mama'? What's that?" you may think, puzzling over the coming soon roster. "Sounds sweet."
Gentle movie enthusiast, come with us. We'll guide you through January's new releases and show you the light, movie math style. Click ahead for our simple arithmetic breakdowns of the coming attractions.
(And for the record, "Mama" is not sweet. It's 98 percent likely to scare the living bejeezus out of you and undo whatever goodwill you may harbor toward Jessica Chastain after "The Help.") Get More »

This week, the release of "Texas Chainsaw 3D" has us in a Lone Star State of Mind, and even though Leatherface is our favorite homicidal handyman, we often wonder what he does in his off-hours... when not butchering teens or parusing the latest Husqvarna hardware at Home Depot.
Here's our resident artiste Max Evry's rendition of a serene Leatherface, just kicking back in the rural splendor outside his farmhouse, getting some R&R after the daily grind.

You wouldn't think there was much new you could do with a franchise like "Texas Chainsaw Massacre," especially after nearly four decades of sequels, prequels and spinoffs. After all, the premise is pretty much all right there in the title: A guy from Texas massacres people with a chainsaw. It's just not that complicated.
But as far as Lionsgate is concerned, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, which is why the trailer for "Texas Chainsaw 3D" features a lot of chainsaws, a lot of massacres and a lot of Texas, not necessarily in that order.
Sometimes it pays to keep it simple. Get More »
