Producing More, Brad Pitt is 'Killing Them Softly'

CANNES, France - Brad Pitt is making the movie star thing look darn easy. Since he last collaborated with Andrew Dominik, he's starred in the Coen brothers' "Burn After Reading," David Fincher's "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds," Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life," and Bennett Miller's "Moneyball." It's been arguably the best stretch of his career, one vacillating between comedy and drama and defined not by summer blockbusters but by provocative director-oriented fare. The bookends to the period are Dominik's "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" and "Killing Them ... more

'Piranha 3DD' Hopes to Lure in Moviegoers Again

LOS ANGELES - It's a sink or swim moment for the filmmakers behind the sequel to "Piranha 3D." Combining a silly, self-aware sensibility with over-the-top gore, the original comedic horror film starring the likes of Richard Dreyfuss, Christopher Lloyd and Elizabeth Shue as townsfolk fighting off prehistoric flesh-eating fish became a just-add-water cult hit when it was released two summers ago opposite more mature fare such as "The Expendables" and "Eat Pray Love." Dimension Films, the division of the Weinstein Co. that produces horror and sci-fi fare, quickly christened a sequel with the tongue-in-cheek title "Piranha 3DD" - yes, that's... more

Movie Review: For Greater Glory

If Michael Bay woke up one day and said to himself, "I need to make a movie about religious persecution in 1920s Mexico," I imagine it would look something like this. Which is to say it would be a loud, violent, overlong mess of a movie, reeking of melodrama and filled with beautiful actors. That's "For Greater Glory" in a nutshell. Bay, the manchild behind "Transformers" and "Armageddon," had nothing to do with this film. But his insatiable appetite for excess must have been a blueprint for this Mexican production. While "For Greater Glory" was made without blockbuster money -- it was financed independently -- it walks and talks like a ... more

Movie Review: Snow White & the Huntsman

Astonishingly beautiful and breathtaking in its brutal imagery, "Snow White & the Huntsman" is thrilling and frightening in equal measure, yet as bereft of satisfying substance as a poisoned apple. Rupert Sanders' revisionist take on the classic Brothers Grimm fable, the first feature from the respected British commercial director, upends expectations of traditional gender roles while simultaneously embracing what a fairy tale should be. It's dark and dangerous, vicious and violent. Yes, there are dwarves and adorable, furry woodland creatures but more often, death is a constant threat. And yet the performances - notably from Kristen Ste... more
