  • Playing Cat and Mouse With Will Smith in 'Focus'

    2015
    The decent but unremarkable caper comedy "Focus" is the kind of movie you see with some pleasure but no dreams of sequels or remakes.

  • Julianne Moore Invigorates Dark, Messy 'Maps to the Stars'

    2015
    "Maps to the Stars" is such a deliriously perfect title for a Hollywood send-up that it's amazing it hasn't been used in that form before.

A New Animal Kingdom for Michod in 'The Rover'

rover movie desert

CANNES, France (AP) — "It's getting howly out there," says the Australian director David Michod , peering out at a torrential downpour that's pounding the southern coast of France. The stormy backdrop is fittingly portentous for Michod as he discusses his much anticipated follow-up to the Oscar-nominated debut "Animal Kingdom." He calls "The Rover," which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May and hits theaters Friday, "a portrait of a menacing and damaged near-future." It takes place 10 years after a vaguely defined "collapse" that has left Australia's currency worthless... more

Jane Fonda recently became the 42nd recipient of the AFI Life Achievement Award. The 76-year-old actress was honored Thursday evening at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. The winner is selected each year at the Academy Awards ceremony, and the award recognizes that person's contributions in film and television. "Not only is Jane an amazing actress, but she is the world's greatest multitasker," actor Michael Douglas lauded before he presented Fonda with the award. "She was simultaneously an actress, she was a mom, she was a fitness expert and a brave, very courageous political... more

Disney 'Frozen' Frenzy Includes Norway Tourism

norway tourism

NEW YORK (AP) — The popularity of the Disney movie "Frozen" has not only led to box-office profits, sold-out merchandise and long lines to meet "Frozen" characters in Disney parks. It's also motivating fans to visit Norway to see the landscape that inspired the animated movie setting. Harald Hansen , U.S. spokesman for Visit Norway , said the number of U.S. tourists to Norway increased markedly since the film's release in November, with booked hotel nights up 37 percent for the first quarter of this year compared to the same period in 2013. He said tour operators have also seen ... more

Movie Review: ‘The Fault in Our Stars’

fault in our stars

Let's start with the obvious. For its core audience, "The Fault in Our Stars" is essentially critic-proof. If you're a fan of the wildly popular young-adult book by John Green , and have already shed tears at its story of teenage cancer patients learning about life, love and sex as they fight to stay alive, then you'll be a fan of this movie. Slam dunk. Go buy your ticket. But of course, you probably already have. The situation becomes more nuanced, though, for those who haven't read the book. Both author and fans have pronounced the movie, directed by Josh Boone , extremely faithful to the ... more

Movie Review: ‘Edge of Tomorrow’

edge of tomorrow

The time-shifting sci-fi thriller "Edge of Tomorrow" has perfectly encapsulated what it is to be a summertime moviegoer. We're dropped into a battlefield of digital effects with the fate of the world at stake. Torrents of gunfire and explosions surround. Some alien clonks us over the head. We black out and it all happens again. And again. "Edge of Tomorrow," in which Tom Cruise plays an officer who continually relives a day of combat against extraterrestrials, probably isn't a commentary on the repetitiveness of today's blockbusters. Its star, after all, has been the unchanging, unstoppable ava... more
