Rosamund Pike on the Joys of Being David Fincher's 'Gone Girl'

Posted By Drew Taylor on Oct 1st 2014 3:26PM
Rosamund Pike isn't necessarily a name you're familiar with now. But get familiar, because she's about to be a huge star. Pike has essayed small but memorable roles in "Pride and Prejudice" (interesting biographical aside: she was once engaged to this film's director, the insanely talented Joe Wright), "Jack Reacher," and "The World's End," but she was always just shy of landing that breakthrough... read more

Genesis Rodriguez Talks 'Tusk,' and Has Some Choice Words for the Naysayers

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on September 09, 2014
"Tusk" is all sorts of f**ked up. The latest from the mind of director Kevin Smith ("Mallrats," "Red State") promises to challenge your assumptions about his filmmaking, and that's putting it lightly. The lone female in the leading ensemble, Genesis Rodriguez, is as gung-ho about the movie as an actor can be, even though she's a self-professed "scaredy cat." Since the movie is nearly...

'The Guest' Star Dan Stevens Reveals That Method Man Is a Huge 'Downton Abbey' Fan

Posted By Drew Taylor on September 09, 2014
On October 10th, one of our very favorite movies of the year expands nationwide, to about 500 screens, after building considerable word-of-mouth and sterling reviews. That movie is "The Guest." And instead of being a stuffy art house movie, which follows a similar rollout (and achieves comparable buzz), "The Guest" is a down-and-dirty genre movie and probably the most fun 100 minutes you'll have...

'SNL' Parody Proves Audiences Will See Anything Marvel Makes (VIDEO)

Posted By Katie Roberts on September 09, 2014
"Guardians of the Galaxy" star Chris Pratt hosted the 40th season premiere of "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, and the show couldn't help but poke fun at Marvel's success with the unlikely superhero flick -- and audiences' undying support for seemingly anything and everything the studio produces. In a fake trailer for supposed upcoming Marvel releases, an announcer notes that "Marvel can't...

Andrew Scott on 'Pride,' Meeting Imelda Staunton and 'Playing Gay'

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on September 09, 2014
Sometimes a movie takes an obscure event and really breathes life into it. "Pride" is one such movie, and Andrew Scott -- the 37-year-old Irish actor who you may know better as Moriarty from TV's "Sherlock" -- nails his understated role. Scott plays Gethin, boyfriend to Dominic West's Jonathan, and owner of Gay's the Word bookshop. As the only gay person in his village, Gethin is forced to leave...

Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike on 'Hector and the Search for Happiness' (VIDEO)

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on September 09, 2014
Some critics have been describing "Hector and the Search for Happiness" as "Eat, Pray, Love" for men. While it's not exactly like that, "Hector" does share the same elements of finding happiness within one's life, and title character Hector (Simon Pegg) travels around the world on his journey. We've all been there; as we grow older we question if we've ever truly discovered what it...

'Sons of Anarchy's' Kim Coates Says the Final Season Is 'Full Out, Full Throttle, Wiping Everybody Out'

Posted By Alana Altmann on September 09, 2014
"Sons of Anarchy" had its record-breaking Season 7 premiere last week, making the beloved biker drama's final season even more real (and heartbreaking) for the show's fans. If there's one "SOA" character that stands out from the pack as a fan favorite, it's Alex "Tig" Trager. The wild, violent, and freaky biker has been a source of bloody entertainment and comic relief throughout the show's...

James McAvoy on 'Eleanor Rigby,' 'Victor Frankenstein,' and the Pinnacle of His Career (Sort Of)

Posted By Drew Taylor on September 09, 2014
Earlier this year, James McAvoy dazzled audiences as the psychic mutant Charles Xavier (known mostly by his cool superhero moniker Professor X) in the blockbuster "X-Men: Days of Future Past." In that movie, he was on one side of an embittered relationship with the leader of the mutant uprising, Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the movie tried, with varying degrees of success, to show both sides...

Here's a Behind-the-Scenes Look at 'The Boxtrolls,' Courtesy of Bran Stark (EXCLUSIVE)

Posted By Drew Taylor on September 09, 2014
If you've been watching "Game of Thrones," you know that it's hard not to root for Isaac Hempstead-Wright, who plays the crippled (but still plucky) young member of the Stark clan, Bran, whose destiny seems to be coming sharply into focus. But as amazing as being a part of a television phenomenon, Hempstead-Wright has an even cooler gig on the horizon -- he's the lead voice actor in "The...

Atom Egoyan on 'The Captive,' Boos at Cannes, and Exploitation

Posted By Jason Gorber on September 09, 2014
In May, Canadian director Atom Egoyan's latest film "The Captive" bowed as part of the prestigious Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival. Charitably it can be said reception of the film was mixed, with some stinging vitriol levelled at Egoyan. "The Captive" is a challenging, dark film that echoes many themes prominent in Egoyan's other works. The loss of a child, the bleak snowy...

Honest Trailer and 'Everything Wrong With' Cross Over to Skewer 'Amazing Spider-man 2'

Posted By Kelly Woo on September 09, 2014
"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" was, shall we say, not well-received. In fact, it was so awful that the folks behind Honest Trailers and the "Everything Wrong With" videos teamed up to take down the comic book movie. Screen Junkies (behind Honest Trailers) and CinemaSins (the "Everything Wrong With" people) decided to do a crossover and swap formats to skewer the movie. And the results are...

Matthew Weiner on the Downside of Technology, the Warmth of Zack Galifianakis, and the 'Mad Men' Finale

Posted By Jonny Black on August 08, 2014
"Are You Here" writer and director Matthew Weiner spent the last two decades in television, in which he was instrumental in bringing not one but two of the most popular and important TV shows of the era, "The Sopranos" and "Mad Men" to the small screen. Once production wrapped on HBO's acclaimed mob series, Weiner started work on a '60s-era drama centered on New York's most prestigious ad...

Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez on Mickey Rourke, 3D, and a Third 'Sin City'

Posted By Drew Taylor on September 09, 2014
Back when the first "Sin City" was released in 2005, the idea of doing a 1:1 translation of a graphic novel for the big screen was so outside the box that it bordered on lunacy. But that's just what Robert Rodriguez, the filmmaker behind "Desperado" and "Spy Kids," did when adapting Frank Miller's hard-boiled graphic novel "Sin City." Instead of appropriating the look and feel of the comic...

Charlotte Le Bon on 'The Hundred-Foot Journey' and Her Non-Existent Cooking Skills (VIDEO)

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on August 08, 2014
Every actor probably dreams of this: legendary director Steven Spielberg (or one of his "people") calling you up on the phone and asking you to come personally audition. This actually happened to Charlotte Le Bon, the French-Canadian star of "The Hundred-Foot Journey," which co-stars Helen Mirren. Needless to say, she got the part in this charming story of food and family. As you'll find...

Dave Bautista, Drax in 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' on His Makeup and Fave Scene (VIDEO)

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on August 08, 2014
Usually when a former wrestler or bodybuilder (excluding Arnold Schwarzenegger) is cast in a movie, the character is one-dimensional without a whole lot going on. Not so in action-superhero comedy "Guardians of the Galaxy," in which ex-WWEer and MMA fighter Dave Bautista plays Drax, an otherworldly being covered in strange body markings. Drax actually has a lot happening in his life (and...

'Royal Pains' Star Mark Feuerstein Shares His Five Favorite TV Medical Dramas

Posted By Alana Altmann on August 08, 2014
Mark Feuerstein has appeared in dozens of TV projects throughout his career. You can catch him in shows like "The West Wing," "Caroline in the City," or "Once and Again," and he currently stars in the medical series, "Royal Pains." Since Feuerstein plays a doctor (something he's done in a few past TV roles, as well), we thought we would get his picks for his five favorite medical dramas ever....

Michael Pitt, Director Mike Cahill on 'I, Origins' and Casting the Perfect Child (VIDEO)

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on July 07, 2014
You'll never look at eyes in the same way again. At least, that's what "I, Origins" director Mike Cahill and leading man Michael Pitt agree on -- that the human eye is a thing of wonderment that should be revered. "I, Origins" is the story of a molecular biologist (Pitt), who accidentally stumbles on a miraculous scientific discovery in his lab, which may change the way the world looks...

Richard Linklater on the Process of Making 'Boyhood' and Choosing Ellar Coltrane

Posted By Jason Gorber on July 07, 2014
Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" is a remarkable film in many ways. First, it once again solidifies the iconoclastic filmmaker's reputation as a compelling filmmaker, one who often uses time to frame his narratives. Whether it's the narratives that take place over a single day like "Dazed and Confused," or films that age over decades like the "Before Sunrise"/"Before Sunset"/"Before Moonrise"...

Marvel's Next Captain America Is... Stephen Colbert? No, Not Really. (VIDEO)

Posted By Casey Rosenfeld on August 08, 2014
Stephen Colbert revealed some big news about everyone's favorite patriotic super solider last night on "The Colbert Report." Before bringing out Marvel Comics' CCO Joe Quesada, Colbert dropped the knowledge that the role of Captain America was open. Colbert questioned who could possibly fill the role, and had the crowd chanting "Stephen!" repeatedly, before he could finish the question. But...

Zach Braff on 'Wish I Was Here' and Putting His Heart and Soul Into the Movie (VIDEO)

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on July 07, 2014
Zach Braff is back behind the camera (and in front) again for "Wish I Was Here," his latest look at family life, growing older, and the semi-new issue of aging parents needing care. This is a project very close to his heart. "Wish I Was Here" is a Kickstarter-funded film; Braff launched the campaign in April of 2013 to make $2 million to help create the film, and the rest is history -- they...

Steve James, 'Life Itself' Director, on Roger Ebert and Telling the Whole Story

Posted By Jason Gorber on July 07, 2014
Prior to this year, Steve James was best known as the director of "Hoop Dreams." The three-hour film about inner-city Chicago basketball players drew the attention of noted movie critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert, and its lack of nomination for an Oscar that year caused it to gain considerable notoriety and loud support from the famed critic pair. Decades on, James was tasked with bringing...
