This weekend, the Easter frame saw a menu of new releases debut but audiences still made the super hero juggernaut Captain America: The Winter Soldier the top attraction as the Marvel man spent his third consecutive weekend at number one. Soldier is the second biggest blockbuster of 2014 trailing the $252.3M of The LEGO Movie which also happens to be the only other movie this year to threepeat.
This week, Christy breaks down the Disney true life adventure Bears, the sci-fi thriller Transcendence and on home video the animated, action-packed The Nut Job, the day-dreaming fantasy The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty and the buddy comedy Ride Along.
In this giant-size edition, Matt Atchity & Grae Drake talk new movies with RT's Tim Ryan, and then interview Christopher Meloni and Joel Surnow about their new film 'Small Time.' Plus, Sarah interviews John Turturro about his Five Favorite Films.
He once seemed destined for nothing better or worse than simple teen idolhood, but since escaping from 21 Jump Street in 1990, Johnny Depp has proven himself to be a brave (and mostly pretty astute) chooser of scripts, building an impressive filmography that encompasses everything from black-and-white arthouse fare (Dead Man) to blockbuster Disney trilogies (Pirates of the Caribbean). This weekend, he returns to theaters in Transcendence as a scientist who has his consciousness uploaded to the cloud, so we thought now would be a fine time to devote a fresh installment of Total Recall to counting down the 10 best-reviewed releases of Depp's 30-year (and counting) film career.
Morgan Freeman, Kata Mara, Paul Bettany, and Rebecca Hall star in the new drama about artifical intelligence from director Wally Pfister, Transcendence. Grae Drake talks to them about whether or not they would miss the internet, and what kind of computer they would take the form of.
