Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies - 'Drive,' 'I Don't Know How She Does It,' & More

Faithful readers, I apologize that we didn’t have a Trailer Talk column last week. I just moved into a wonderful new apartment and got pretty wrapped up in the packing/unpacking process. Now that I’m settled though, we’re back to business as usual.

I watched Steven Soderbergh’s “Contagion” last week, which I really enjoyed. It’s an infectious whodunit with fantastic casting, eerie electronic music that effectively builds tension, and solid character development. My Grade: A

Arriving in theaters this week are the Ryan Gosling crime thriller “Drive,” the Sarah Jessica Parker dramedy “...

Last week I took a break from the theater while I was on vacation, so I didn’t catch anything new. However I did watch the Nick Cassavetes crime drama “Alpha Dog.”

“Alpha Dog” squanders a talented cast of young actors including Anton Yelchin, Justin Timberlake, Emile Hirsch, Olivia Wilde, and Ben Foster with poorly developed character relationships and atrociously written dialogue.

Cassavetes throws in lots of curses to make the young punks seem like hard asses, but instead it makes them seem like ridiculous caricatures of the supposed real life people they’re based on. The only believ...

Russo admits she was terrified before she climbed on top of Keaton for her first ever love scene, recalling, "I'm thinking, 'I don't know how to do this...Do I just go for it, like full on...?' I get under the covers and I get on top o...

Pierce Brosnan To Return To TV With New Series

November 22nd, 2010 12:30pm EST
Typically, James Bond movies end with: "James Bond will return."

And he has. Or Pierce Brosnan has, anyway.

For the first time in 25 years, the former 007 will star in a new television series, which remains untitled for now. It comes to us from former "ER" writer Jack Orman.

The show will be a drama, and Brosnan will reportedly play a private investigator who lives in Los Angeles.

The last time Brosnan starred on a TV series was in 1982, when "Remington Steele" premiered.

While Brosnan will produce the show, he will unlikely play the lead role in order to juggle other projects.
