Review: The Hummingbird Project

Sometimes a movie looks interesting, timely, and well put together. That's exactly what The Hummingbird Project looked like to me. With a cast of big names led by Jesse Eisenberg, Alexander Skarsgård, Salma Hayek, I couldn't unde...

Kristen Stewart joins Kelly Reichardt's new project

Newest trailer for The Double doubles up on the good stuff

Richard Ayoade's The Double is going to be a quiet hit. It looks fantastic. Jesse Eisenberg (who's going to play Lex Luthor in a few years, apparently) literally shows different aspects of his talent, the trailer is rife with humor, and I ...

Interview: Jesse Eisenberg (Now You See Me)

Upon sitting down with Jesse Eisenberg he started asking me questions, which is the opposite of how an interview is supposed to go, but totally awesome of him. That pretty much sums him up so our conversation about magic led into him taking...

Review: Now You See Me

I love magic. I always have. If you suspend your disbelief that magic's not real (kind of like wrestling), it can take you to a wonderful place, a place where that rabbit really did get pulled from some pocket dimension inside a top hat or ...

Trailer: Now You See Me

Now You See Me is going to be awesome. It's got Jesse Eisenberg (that one awkward guy), Mark Ruffalo (that Hulk guy), Morgan Freeman (the guy that gets a new freckle every time he provides an explanation), Woody Harrelson (that weed guy) a...

Red Band Trailer #2: 30 Minutes or Less

This is the second red band trailer for 30 Minutes or Less (relive the first one right here). It's weird, to me, that there are not one but two red band trailers for this movie. I can't remember the last one that received&nb...

Trailer: Rio

Yes, I know we posted this in the trailer round-up post, but I thought it deserved a separate discussion to see what everyone's thoughts are. Charming and fun? Or tame and bland? I've got to admit that the premise and the journey have me ...
