Sexy Male Stars At The 86th Annual Academy Awards
It's usually all about the ladies and who they're wearing on the Oscars red carpet. But there are plenty of guys that look really incredible too.

Bradley Cooper, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for "American Hustle," wore a Tom Ford tuxedo to the event. He was accompanied by his British model girlfriend Suki Waterhouse.

Jared Leto easily stole the coveted Oscar from Cooper for his role in "Dallas Buyers Club." But we don't think he won the red carpet competition.

Leto's tux was an unusual combination of black and white with a red bow tie. We can forgive him his style choice b...

From the first second of the first scene, this film had me hooked.  I knew I was in for an incredible ride, and that’s exactly what ‘American Hustle’, directed by David O. Russell (‘Silver Linings Playbook’) is… one fantastic cinematic ride.

Matt Damon In Negotiations To Play Jason Bourne Again?

Rumor has it Matt Damon will be returning to the Jason Bourne series - but that doesn't mean that Jeremy Renner is out.

In fact, it appears Damon and Renner could actually team up in a blockbuster film. Twitchfilm reports that Universal is gunning for Damon and original director Paul Greengrass and is not ruling out another appearance of Renner's Aaron Cross character.

However, Universal told Variety there is no truth to the rumor despite the appeal of having both actors in the same film. However, a writer has been hired to begin work on the next installment - and Jeremy Renner is already...

"The Avengers" star Jeremy Renner is a new dad. The actor's on-again, off-again girlfriend gave birth to a baby girl on Thursday.

The actor's representative has since confirmed that Renner and Pacheco have since gotten back together and are proud parents to a daughter named Ava Berlin Renner.

A statement issued to People.com reads: "They are beyond thrilled. Mother and daughter are doing great."

Jeremy Renner has brushed off scathing reviews of his new action film Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, insisting "this was never going to be a movie for the critics."

The film, an adaptation of the famous Brothers Grimm fairy tale which also stars British actress Gemma Arterton, debuted at the top of the box office this weekend with takings of $19 million, but received a rotten reception from reviewers.

Peter Travers of Rolling Stone magazine called the film "lame-brained," "vomit-inducing" and "the longest 90 minutes you ever spend in a theatre" while Richard Corliss of Time magazine s...

The Bourne Legacy
Universal's The Bourne Legacy is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD, and the home version is a worthy translation of a great major motion picture. What do you get inside the Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack edition?

For those who missed the August theatrical release, Bourne Legacy is a film that stands well on its own merits while also expanding the scope of the successful franchise. It doesn't snub the previous Bourne films; rather, it establishes a compelling new hero and his story parallel to previous events, while leaving the door wide open for convergence at a later date.

Review: 'The Bourne Legacy' Stands On Its Own Merits

August 10th, 2012 7:14am EDT
The Bourne Legacy
Universal is hoping that The Bourne Legacy does well enough that it prolongs the life of the franchise - and with the finished product, the expansion of Bourne is off to a great start.

In the weeks if not months leading up to today's release, there's been a lot of talk about what Legacy isn't, and to evaluate it based on that is to short-change a film that is exactly what we go to the movies for in the summer. This movie never claimed to be a direct sequel to the existing trilogy, and to this critic's knowledge, writer/director Tony Gilroy never turned his back on Matt Damon's Jason ...

Review: 'The Bourne Legacy' Has Its Moments But Lacks Originality

The Bourne Legacy
So what happens when Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass decide that they no longer want to be a part of the super successful franchise known as Bourne?

Do the producers say fine and walk away from their billion dollar cash cow or find another way to keep it going? Silly question, right?

Which brings us to "The Bourne Legacy," written and directed by Tony Gilroy (writer of the previous Bourne films) and starring Jeremy Renner as the new super spy who the evil CIA wants to kill. Sound familiar? Of course it does, and that's the problem.
