'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' Review: A Dull, Dark Exercise

Posted By Jason Gorber on November 11, 2014
"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1." Not exactly the kind of pithy title that's the stuff of poetry, but it should do fine alerting audiences to the fact that this is part of the immensely popular young adult series penned by Suzanne Collins, that we've reached the culmination of the trilogy, and, naturally, we're only getting half of it in this 123-minute epic. The film starts...

The 25 Best Christmas Movies Ever Made

Posted By Gary Susman on November 11, 2014
Am I the only one who finds most Christmas movies hypocritical? They spend tens of millions on lavish productions, recreating Santa's workshop or some such, all to tell us that Christmas is not about material things but about simple pleasures. It's enough to make you long for the homespun, slightly threadbare charms of a classic Christmas movie, like "Meet Me in St. Louis," released 70 years ago...

Posted By Katie Roberts on November 11, 2014
Jennifer Lawrence has received some high praise in her day, racking up awards and accolades from both fans and her film industry peers. But the latest bit of love for the star might be the grandest compliment of them all. In an interview with E! News, Donald Sutherland, who stars with Lawrence in the "Hunger Games" films, raved about the actress, and name-dropped some pretty big shoes that he...

The 18 Most Essential Mike Nichols Movies

Posted By Gary Susman on November 11, 2014
Few directors can be said to have changed the way films are made, but Mike Nichols, who died Wednesday at 83, was one of them. His first film, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966), ended decades of Hollywood censorship of adult content and freed the movies for mature language and subject matter ever after. His second film, "The Graduate," was the first serious mainstream movie to feature a...

Posted By Katie Roberts on November 11, 2014
Fresh off claiming the Sexiest Woman Alive title, actress Penelope Cruz is putting her award-winning looks to use: She's reportedly signed on to star in the sequel to 2001's supermodel-skewering "Zoolander." Deadline reports that Cruz is close to a deal for the flick, in which Ben Stiller will reprise his role as the titular airhead model. No word yet on just what Cruz's part might entail,...

Now the Studio Has Dropped Out of Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs Biopic, Too

Posted By Katie Roberts on November 11, 2014
What once sounded like a promising project is now in even more trouble: Studio Sony has put the Aaron Sorkin-penned Steve Jobs biopic in turnaround, effectively ending its relationship with the film. The flick, to be based on Walter Isaacson's bestselling biography of the late Apple co-founder, has already gone through its fair share of upheaval recently, losing star Christian Bale and...

Christian Bale Has All the Right Answers in This Exclusive 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' Clip

Posted By Tim Hayne on November 11, 2014
Biblical epics tout huge set pieces, special effects, and grand drama, but they're also rife with intimate moments, as in this exclusive clip from the upcoming Ridley Scott-directed "Exodus: Gods and Kings," starring Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Kingsley, and John Turturro. In the clip, Moses (Bale) and Zipporah (María Valverde) share a quiet moment...

Watch: 'Pitch Perfect 2' Trailer Is In the Key of Awesome (VIDEO)

Posted By Drew Taylor on November 11, 2014
In 2012, the a cappella-themed "Pitch Perfect," produced for $17 million and stocked with a cast of largely unknown actors, was released and became a sleeper smash. It wasn't an out-of-the-box sensation, but it grew through word-of-mouth and thanks to its unstoppably best-selling soundtrack album. When all was said and done, it amassed $113 million worldwide and sold tons and tons of copies on...

The Biggest Blunders From Your Favorite Young Adult Movies

Posted By Jonny Black on November 11, 2014
"Young adult" is that awkward stage between adolescence and adulthood, when kids (if they let you call them that) make plenty of mistakes but are actually old enough to know better. But, unlike for their human counterparts, when YA movies make mistakes, they're on display for millions to see (and the internet to point them out). From "Twilight" to "Harry Potter," here are a few movie mistakes...

Oscar-Winning Director Mike Nichols Dies at 83

Posted By Drew Taylor on November 11, 2014
On Tina Fey's wonderfully weird "30 Rock," there was a running joke about how the megalomaniacal star Tracy Jordan (played, somewhat confusingly, by Tracy Morgan), was on the quest for achieving the mythical EGOT, meaning he wanted to win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony. He wanted to conquer the whole of the entertainment industry. Few have achieved this nearly mythical goal. But director Mike...

TV Land Pulls 'The Cosby Show' From Its Lineup

Posted By The Associated Press on November 11, 2014
DAVID BAUDER, AP Television Writer NEW YORK (AP) - NBC has scrapped a Bill Cosby comedy that was under development and TV Land will stop airing reruns of "The Cosby Show," moves that came a day after another woman came forward claiming that the once-beloved comic had sexually assaulted her. NBC spokeswoman Rebecca Marks said Wednesday the Cosby sitcom "is no longer under development." A TV...

Allen Leech, Matthew Goode on 'The Imitation Game' and Working With Benedict Cumberbatch

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on November 11, 2014
Often biopics, even loosely based ones, can be dull, stiff, and uninteresting. Not so with "The Imitation Game," director Morten Tyldum's story about the life of Alan Turing. Played by Benedict Cumberbatch, Turing as a character is fascinating to watch. The supporting cast, which features Matthew Goode ("The Good Wife") and Allen Leech ("Downton Abbey"), is an essential part of keeping...

Blake Lively Never Grows Old in 'Age of Adaline' Trailer

Posted By Kelly Woo on November 11, 2014
In "The Age of Adaline," Blake Lively never has to wonder if someone will love when she's no longer young and beautiful - because she never ages. A new trailer takes us through the story of Adaline, a woman born in 1908 who suffers from a terrible car accident in the '30s. But something magical takes place that night, and suddenly, Adaline is "immune to the ravages of time." Decades pass;...

Jennifer Lawrence Basically Has a Penis, According to Elizabeth Banks

Posted By Kelly Woo on November 11, 2014
Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Banks are delightful on their own. Together, their charm is exponentially multiplied. Really, it's nearly unbearable. (Nearly!) Banks hosted her "Hunger Games" co-star on her web chat show, "Ask a Badass," and it's clear that blondes really do have more fun. At least, when they're Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Banks. At one point, after talking about the...

Posted By Jenni Miller on November 11, 2014
Maybe the sun will come out tomorrow for "Annie" fans after all. Sia's Auto-Tuned take on "You're Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile" had some of us scratching our heads, but fans of the original musical might feel a little better after listening to the full soundtrack on Spotify. All of the "Annie" songs received a few nips and tucks, but classics from the Broadway show, including...

Every year for the past few years, a new "Hunger Games" movie has been unleashed on the world and those releases have come complete with a slew of tie-in merchandise, cunningly synergistic and essential in the studio's desire to build hype and awareness around the young-adult novel adaptations (which star Jennifer Lawrence and are based on books by Suzanne Collins, of course). But the...
