Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies
If you missed my interview with Fran Kranz and Kristen Connolly from “The Cabin in the Woods,” definitely be sure to give it a read. They both had some amusing stories to share about their experience working with Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon on the movie. Also last week, I had the opportunity to visit Washington DC for an exciting espionage adventure in honor of the blu-ray release for “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol,” which I chronicled here.

Arriving in theaters this week are the Zac Efron romantic drama “The Lucky One,” the African American comedy “Think Life a Man,” the pri...

Soap Dish

Ashton Kutcher Fighting For Risque Film Title

Ashton Kutcher
Ashton Kutcher is fighting to keep the controversial title of his new film, "The F--k Buddies," because he's convinced it will help sell the film.

The "Killers" star has teamed up with Kevin Kline and Natalie Portman for the Ivan Reitman comedy and he hopes movie executives will not be turned off by the risque title.

He tells MovieHole.net, "I just finished a film called The F**k Buddies, that may not ultimately be called 'F--k Buddies.' I don't know why... I think people would love to go see a movie called 'The F--k Buddies.'

"I think if I saw a poster and it said 'The F--k Buddies,' I'...

Dinner for Schmucks
The action thriller “Salt” turned out to be more complex than I initially thought. Promotional material made the film seem like it would be a run-of-the-mill rogue spy on the run story. Without spoiling the details, there is additional intrigue surrounding CIA agent Evelyn Salt (Angelina Jolie), and the accusation that she’s a Russian mole. Thankfully the filmmakers don’t reveal her motivations too early on, keeping them close to the chest until the final act.

Jolie convincingly plays a strong female heroine, however as an actress I don’t feel like she adds much flavor to the role itsel...

Best Movies Set In Cold Locations

Fargo
Often times, weather plays an integral role in films, whether it be that it helps to set the tone, has symbolic significance, or makes a kissing scene all the more steamy, like the passionate lip-lock between Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams in "The Notebook" (2004), whose sexiness skyrocketed thanks to it taking place during a downpour. Sometimes the weather even takes on a life of its own, like in the film "Twister" (1996), in which the tornado acts as just as much of a protagonist as both Helen Hunt's and Bill Paxton's characters.

So now, with winter officially getting its frosty self...

Why is Katie Holmes Still Famous?

August 19th, 2009 11:51am EDT
Katie Holmes
Katie Holmes owes her career to "Dawson's Creek," cut her real acting teeth in "The Ice Storm," embarrassed herself in movies like "Disturbing Behavior," didn't embarrass herself in "Thank You for Smoking, and even tried her hand at Broadway. But she has yet to do anything that warrants the media's massive favoritism and fixation on her (other than being a very convenient excuse for Tom Cruise, ahem).

Is it her looks?

Some may argue that her looks have gotten her to where she is and kept her there. She did pursue modeling prior to her work as an actress. But take a look at Katie durin...

Before we get started on the Mega Oscar Diary, let's go to a few random ramblings from the cadre of pre-shows around the dial:

-Philip Seymour Hoffman's hat probably came with a matching set of fingerless gloves.

-Those who were unable to see the Los Angeles CW affiliate's pre-show missed this exchange.

-The CW's Female Host: What is the role you'd love to do next. If you could do anything following 'The Wrestler' what would it be?

-Mickey Rourke: (Slowly eyes her up from head to toe with a knowing smile and walks off.)

-I know a lot of people care about fashion, ...
