November 5th, 2013 4:15pm EST
CELEBNAME
Wes Anderson is set to kick off the 64th Berlin International Film Festival on February 6, 2014 with the world premiere of his new film, Grand Budapest Hotel.

The film, Anderson's eighth as director, stars Ralph Fiennes as the titular hotel's concierge befriends a young lobby boy (newcomer Tony Revolori) and takes him under his wing as his unofficial apprentice.

The film was shot on location in Germany, making it the perfect place for it to premiere, as many had assumed it would bow at next year's Cannes Film Festival.

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Scream 4,' 'Rio,' & More

April 11th, 2011 11:00am EDT
Scream 4
After seeing both “Arthur” and “Your Highness” last week, I could not believe how many other critics assigned them either the same score, or gave “Your Highness” a better grade. I found “Arthur” to be quite enjoyable, playing to Russell Brand’s strengths as my review states; while I thought “Your Highness,” was an immature comedy which fails to use raunchy humor effectively.

This week you’ll have the opportunity to see the long-awaited Wes Craven horror sequel “Scream 4,” the Carlos Saldanha animated adventure “Rio,” the off-beat Keanu Reeves comedy “Henry’s Crime,” and "The Conspirator"...

Gondry's 3-D Visuals Spoiled By Dull Humor In 'The Green Hornet'

January 14th, 2011 9:41am EST
The Green Hornet
“The Green Hornet” blends the playful visual style of director Michel Gondry (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”), with the humor of writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (“Superbad”). You might think the combination of these creative forces would be a recipe for success however the end result is rather lackluster. There are some cool 3-D fight scenes in “The Green Hornet,” which are largely marred by unintelligent jokes.

Rogen and Goldberg adapt The Green Hornet superhero made popular by a 1960s television series and a 1930s radio series created by George W. Trendle. According to t...

"I own this town." But owning is getting expensive for old-school London gangster Lenny Cole (Tom Wilkinson). A wealthier foreign mob is moving in with a riverfront property swindle. A small-timer (Gerard Butler) and his crew think they can play both sides and become big time.

'Valkyrie' Takes An Intriguing Look At Historical Event

December 19th, 2008 12:20am EST
Valkyrie
Tom Cruise must be the only actor on the planet who can get away with playing any character, at any time, with an American accent. He never really disappears in his roles, not like Daniel Day-Lewis or Jamie Foxx with his portrayal of Ray Charles in "Ray"-no matter what he does, you can't help but looking at the screen and simply thinking to yourself, that's Tom Cruise. If that's the worst thing that can be said about a film, it probably stands a fighting chance.

As it turns out, Cruise's refusal to be anyone other than himself proves to be but a slight annoyance in an otherwise terrif...

The writers' strike has officially infiltrated awards season. The Golden Globes have been reduced to a lackluster news conference. That means no best and worst dressed list. No boozy celebrities making a fool of themselves. All that remains is an hour-long meeting at the Beverly Hilton Hotel with angry WGA picketers surrounding the premises.

So, until the Hollywood powers-that-be finally buckle down and give the writers what they want and deserve, we here at Starpulse are going to call the winners and losers. We looked at reviews, other expert predictions, viewer attitudes and who we ...
