The Best & Worst Boston Accents in Movies

The Fighter Paramount

There's something about the Boston accent in cinema that forces actors to feel like they really have to nail it. Of course, there are movies set in other cities (Chicago or New York, for example) featuring normally straight-voiced actors straining to sound like they're from the area. But it's not as seemingly mandatory as it is with a Boston-set movie. Get More »

Adrien Brody Heads 'Back to 1942' in Trailer

Tim Robbins in "Back to 1942"
Central Park Films

Before you watch this new trailer, you should know right up front that despite the title, "Back to 1942" is not a time travel adventure and Marty McFly is nowhere to be seen. So that's a bit depressing.

But not nearly as depressing as the actual subject matter, which finds Adrien Brody and Tim Robbins trying to deal with famine, warfare and the depths of human suffering during the height of World War II.

The feel good movie of the year this ain't. Get More »

Actress Eva Amurri and former soccer star Kyle Martino had a sweet Southern wedding in South Carolina over the weekend. Martino is a former pro soccer player turned commentator on ESPN, while Amurri is known for roles in "Californication," "Saved!" and "The Education of Charlie Banks."

Amurri's mom Susan Sarandon hosted the wedding, along with her former partner Tim Robbins (the longtime couple broke up in 2009 after 23 years together). Anti-death penalty advocate Sister Helen Prejean performed the ceremony. If you'll recall, Sarandon won an Oscar for her role as Prejean in the Robbins-directed drama "Dead Man Walking." Amurri played Prejean at the age of 9. Get More »

Queue It Up: 'The Player' Blu-ray

The Player Blu-ray

"Movies. Now More Than Ever!" That's the motto of the studio where slippery producer Griffin Mill (Tim Robbins) crushes the dreams of the thousands of writers that pitch him stories every year. Only one rejected writer continues to grab Griffin's attention: the unidentified one who keeps sending threatening postcards and faxes.

After Griffin confronts and kills the writer he believes is harassing him, the frazzled producer piles lie on top of lie to the police (Whoopi Goldberg and Lyle Lovett) and colleagues while he starts to fall for the dead writer's girlfriend (Greta Scacchi, remember her?). Get More »
