  • Critics Consensus: One Direction: This Is Us is Lightweight But Entertaining

    This week at the movies, we've got a popular boy band (the concert documentary One Direction: This Is Us), a desperate ex-racecar driver (Getaway, starring Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez), and attorneys under surveillance (Closed Circuit, starring Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall). What do the critics have to say?

  • Jon Voight's Best Movies

    Jon Voight's latest movie, this weekend's Ethan Hawke/Selena Gomez thriller Getaway, has been consigned to late August oblivion -- but well before he spent summer's dog days playing an oddly accented kidnapper, Voight earned a reputation for being one of Hollywood's more talented and hard-working actors, with an eye for scripts that would challenge the audience as well as himself. Naturally, we decided to devote this week's list to an appreciation of his best-reviewed works, so without further ado...everybody's talkin' Total Recall, Jon Voight style!

  • Box Office Guru Wrapup: The Butler Holds on to Top Spot

    This weekend, the historical drama Lee Daniels' The Butler easily won a second term as commander-in-chief of the North American box office, beating out three new releases that each opened in the single-digit millions. Forest Whitaker's White House saga declined by only 31% in its sophomore session to an estimated $17M, pushing the ten-day total to an impressive $52.3M and putting it on track to break the $100M mark and become one of the top five grossing films ever for its distributor.

  • Critics Consensus: The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Is a Derivative Fantasy

    This week at the movies, we've got a teenage demon-slayer (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, starring Lily Collins and Lena Headey), a band of masked killers (You're Next, starring Sharni Vinson and Nicholas Tucci), some resilient pub crawlers (The World's End, starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost), and a desperate housewife (Blue Jasmine, starring Cate Blanchett and Alec Baldwin). What do the critics have to say?

  • Lena Headey's Best Movies

    A lot of her time is taken up with Game of Thrones these days, but Lena Headey hasn't forsaken her film career; in fact, she'll be seen in an impressive six movies (and counting) between 2013-14. One of those projects, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, is arriving in theaters this weekend, so we decided now would be the perfect time to take an appreciative look back at some of her most critically successful cinematic efforts. From quiet British dramas to Disney flicks and horror films, Lena's done a lot -- and it doesn't look like she'll be slowing down anytime soon. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with the finest bits of her filmography here!

  • Video Interview: Cast & Director of World's End

    The World's End marks the third and final installment in Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost's "Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy." In it, Pegg and Frost's characters return to their childhood haunt with the intention of doing a legendary pub crawl. What they don't realize is a lot has changed since they left. To celebrate the release, Grae Drake found it fitting to bestow upon the three men Official Rotten Tomatoes Pub Names.

  • Box Office Guru Wrapup: What Won the Weekend? The Butler Did It!

    The annual late-summer funk hit the North American box office with only one of the frame's four new wide releases connecting with audiences. The potential Oscar contender Lee Daniels' The Butler surprised many with its number one opening grossing an estimated $25M. The PG-13 film averaged a strong $8,527 from 2,933 theaters and was the only wide release this weekend to gross more than $20M or generate an average above $6,000.

  • Critics Consensus: Kick-Ass 2 Misses the Target; Lee Daniels' The Butler is Moving and Well-Acted

    This week at the movies, we've got teenage superheroes (Kick-Ass 2, starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz); a White House domestic worker (Lee Daniels' The Butler, starring Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey); corporate killers (Paranoia, starring Liam Hemsworth and Gary Oldman); and a tech titan (Jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher and Dermot Mulroney). What do the critics have to say?

  • Jim Carrey's Best Movies

    He earned his first real success by tapping into America's unquenchable thirst for broad slapstick comedy, but Jim Carrey always had bigger ambitions than anyone could have guessed by watching Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, and he's proven it repeatedly by choosing projects beyond the scope of Farrelly-friendly laffers. His reach has occasionally exceeded his grasp, but few careers can boast a range extending from Dumb and Dumber to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. And with his appearance as the Colonel in Kick-Ass 2 bowing this weekend, we decided there was no time like the present to take a look at the best-reviewed films of Jim Carrey's career!

  • Video Interview: Cast of Paranoia

    In Paranoia, Liam Hemsworth trades his soul for success, diving deep into a world of secrets, uncertainty, and lies. Grae Drake talks to Harrison Ford, Amber Heard, and Hemsworth about who they would spy on, and whether or not there was competition between actors on set.

  • Critics Consensus: Elysium Soars; Planes is Grounded

    This week at the movies, we've got a futuristic factory worker (Elysium, starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster); anthropomorphic aircraft (Planes, with voice performances from Dane Cook and Julia Louis-Dreyfus); a drug-smuggling "family" (We're the Millers, starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis); a high school demigod (Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, starring Logan Lerman and Brandon T. Jackson); and an unlikely teenage couple (The Spectacular Now, starring Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley). What do the critics have to say?

And yes, they do the robot too.

Grae Drake sat down with Green and Hirsch to find out if Texas really appreciated all that free labor.

Grae Drake talks to Teri Hatcher, director Klay Hall, and Cook about their greatest fears, best vacations, and what they're like on plane rides.

  • Box Office Guru Wrapup: 2 Guns Shoots Its Way to the Top

    This weekend, Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg seized the number one spot at the North American box office with their new action thriller 2 Guns, which opened to an estimated $27.4M. Universal's seventh top spot debut of the year averaged a solid $9,045 from 3,025 locations and ended up in the mid-20s range where so many of Washington's films have opened before. It was an impressive bow given that the film was rated R, was not part of a well-known brand, and arrived as the 14th action movie of the summer. Audiences have had a plethora of choices in this genre lately and no action movie has overperformed since World War Z in mid-June.

  • Critics Consensus: 2 Guns Shoots Wildly, But Its Stars Connect

    This week at the movies, we've got heavily-armed undercover agents (2 Guns, starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg) and hijinks-prone blue creatures (The Smurfs 2 with voice work from Neil Patrick Harris and Katy Perry). What do the critics have to say?

  • Bill Paxton's Best Movies

    Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg are the big stars of this weekend's 2 Guns, but they're not alone; the movie also boasts a solid supporting cast that includes a number of wily character actor vets -- including the one and only Bill Paxton, whose eclectic film and television pursuits have been keeping us solidly entertained for three decades and counting. To celebrate his latest role, we decided to spend this week looking back at Mr. Paxton's best-reviewed roles, and although we had to leave out at least one important cameo (hello, The Terminator) and watch one cult classic dip below the cutoff line (farewell, Weird Science), we still ended up with a mighty fine list of films. Game over, man -- it's time for Total Recall!

  • Box Office Guru Wrapup: Wolverine Tops Weekend with $55M

    Hollywood's latest super hero offering took command of the box office as Hugh Jackman's return to Adamantium action in The Wolverine resulted in a number one opening. The popular Marvel character took in an estimated $55M from 3,924 locations for a solid $14,016 average. The debut was almost identical to the $55.1M debut of the franchise's last film X-Men: First Class which opened in June 2011. That summer's Thor and Captain America films bowed to about $65M a piece.
