RDJ
After struggling for prominence in Hollywood for over 20 years, Robert Downey Jr. is arguably the biggest movie star in the world right now.

Downey is also set to re-team with director Guy Ritchie for a sequel to “Sherlock Holmes” which had an impressive box office performance late last year and won Downey both critical praise and accolades. As if that wasn’t en...

War Comes to Hollywood

November 12th, 2007 9:43am EST
Redacted
As far back as the 30s, celebrities and even cartoon characters endorsed the purchase of war bonds to support World War I. Then again, there were those who opposed war. For example, producers came up with films such as "Johnny Got his Gun" in 1971, which was based on the 1938 anti-war novel by Dalton Trumbo.

Big Screen To Little Screen: Some Series Shine Will Others Fail

October 22nd, 2007 12:56pm EDT
Buffy
Often we don’t realize that our favorite TV shows began as vehicles on the big screen. Many of television’s best programs started that way. Then again, so did some of the worst.

Unfortunately, it was Polly Holiday who made the sitcom a success. By the time she left the show and was replaced in 1980 by the original Flo, Diane Ladd, the damage had already been done. The series soon met its demise.

In 1992...

Lindsay Lohan is this week's 'Maxim Hot 100' girl! Head on over to Maxim's Lindsay Lohan page to check her out!

Lindsay's new movie I Know Who Killed Me hits theaters today, but that's not what all the recent Li-Lo talk has been about this week. Apparently the young star has fallen off the wagon again and gotten herself into more trouble.

Early Tuesday morning Lindsay was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and possession of cocaine. She had recently finished a rehab stint at the Promises rehab center, the same place Britney Spears spent her rehab time. And if it's any indica...

CANNES, France (AP) - Martin Scorsese wants to save the world cinema. The Academy Award-winning director said Tuesday it was a ''dream come true'' to launch his international project at the Cannes Film Festival, where his ''Taxi Driver'' won the top prize in 1976.

He's backed by an advisory board of prominent directors, including Mexico's Guillermo Del Toro (''Pan's Labyrinth'') and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (''Babel''); China's Wong Kar-wai (''In the Mood For Love'') and Britain's Stephen Frears (''The Queen.'')

The idea stemmed from the work of The Film Foundation in the Unite...
