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

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on Sep 30th 2014 4:06PM

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... read more

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on September 09, 2014
Sometimes a movie takes an obscure event and really breathes life into it.

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...

Nick Kroll, Joel McHale on 'Adult Beginners' and Doing Each Other Favours

Posted By Rick Mele on September 09, 2014
According to Nick Kroll, the initial inspiration for "Adult Beginners," his debut feature as a leading man, came from a botched diaper change after babysitting his sister's young nephew. From there, the comedian brought the idea for a movie about a man-child nanny to his "League" co-star Mark Duplass, who came on-board as a producer, then teamed up with writers Jeff Cox and Liz Flahive (parents...

What Aboot If Yer Favourite Movies Were Canadian, Eh?

Posted By Jesse Ferreras on September 09, 2014
How many book lovers would line up to see "The Great Gretzky?" How might "Men in Plaid" do at the box office? And what would the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences think of the suburban drama "Canadian Beauty"? These questions arose after Twitter users altered the titles of famous films under the #MakeamovieCanadian hashtag over the past couple of days. The trend gave rise to some...

Noomi Rapace and Tom Hardy on 'The Drop' and Their Unusual Bond

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on September 09, 2014
Noomi Rapace and Tom Hardy like each other. They really, really like each other. That's never more apparent than in "The Drop," a gangster crime thriller starring the two intense young actors, as well as the late James Gandolfini (his last film). Rapace and Hardy ooze chemistry on-screen, and apparently it translates into real life as well. Moviefone Canada spoke to them at the Toronto...

New, First-Time Shown 'Maps to the Stars' Trailer (VIDEO)

Posted By Chris Jancelewicz on September 09, 2014
Sometimes we're so dazzled by the fanciness of Hollywood we forget that there's an entirely different side to the glitz and glamour -- one of inadequacy, desperation and despair. In Canadian director David Cronenberg's latest movie, "Maps to the Stars," we meet a group of troubled people (Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson) trying to find their way in...

Charlie Hunnam Had Nervous Breakdown Over 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

Posted By Amber Dowling on September 09, 2014
For all those firm believers out there that things happen for a reason, it's worth noting that Charlie Hunnam was never going to take the role of Christian Grey in the first place. The actor made international headlines when he landed the salacious "Fifty Shades of Grey" role last summer, and even more when he dropped out two months later. At the time the "Sons of Anarchy" star steered clear of...

Al Pacino Won TIFF on Sunday

Posted By Emma Prestwich on September 09, 2014
Al Pacino is successful enough that no one would bat an eye if he was grumpy at a film festival. But being a jerk was not in the plans for the 74-year-old actor on Sunday, who turned a mundane press conference at the Toronto International Film Festival for his film "Manglehorn" into several minutes of unscripted fun. It started when the film's director, David Gordon Green, spilled his glass...

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...

'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Review: Ranking All the Reasons to Kill

Posted By Rick Mele on August 08, 2014
Once again co-directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," the visually striking follow-up to the 2005 hit, gets even more eyeball-popping the second time around -- literally, sure, but also because this time it's in 3D. Acting as both a sequel or prequel depending on the story, the second "Sin City" follows a handful of storylines (some old, some created for...

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Review: Ranking the Ridiculousness

Posted By Rick Mele on August 08, 2014
Mutant turtles living in New York City sewers and fighting crime isn't exactly what you'd call a "realistic" premise, and really, the inherent goofiness has always been part of the charm for a property that's spawned three animated series, multiple movies, and countless toy lines. But for some reason, the new "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie, produced by Michael Bay and directed by Jonathan...
