Abbie Cornish Remakes The Hero's Wife In 'RoboCop'
One of the coolest movie moments so far this year was the return of RoboCop to the big screen. The long-awaited, much-buzzed remake of the sci-fi classic has now hit home video, and BFTV had the opportunity to chat with star Abbie Cornish - the woman behind Alex Murphy/RoboCop's loyal wife Clara - about her own knowledge of the RoboCop franchise and keeping her character away from being the cliched spouse.

Seven Psychopaths
What does one little Shih Tzu named BONNY, Seven Psychopaths and one screenwriter suffering from writer's block have in common?

Everything...At least in my favorite film of 2012 so far.

Screenwriter, Marty Faranan (Colin Farrell) is way past his deadline on his latest screenplay. If that's not enough to cause the poor dude major stress, his passive-aggressive girlfriend, Kaya (Abbie Cornish) is about to walk out on him.

Lucky for Marty, his BFF sometime actor/full time dognapper, Billy (Sam Rockwell, in a tour de force performance) is sticking by him; actually a little too much.

In fact...

Check Out 'W.E.,' Directed By Madonna, On DVD & Blu-ray May 1

4/27/2012 6:31am EDT
In "W.E.," Madonna returns to the director's seat for the first time since her 2008 feature debut, "Filth and Wisdom," for an ambitious romance detailing one lonely woman's obsession with the relationship between King Edward VIII (James D'Arcy) and American divorcée Wallis Simpson (Andrea Riseborough).

Celebrities That Turn 30 in 2012
It's hard to believe for many of us the 1982 was 30 years ago. In that year, Ronald Reagan was President, Joe Montana was the Superbowl XVI MVP and the space shuttle Columbia made its first mission.

In movies, E.T., Tootsie and Gandhi ruled the box office while Chariots of Fire took best picture at the Academy Awards that year. Also taking home Oscar gold for best actor and actress in 1982 respectively were Katharine Hepburn and Henry Fonda for On Golden Pond. In music Michael Jackson released Thriller which sold more than 25 million copies, becoming the biggest selling album in history.

Your enjoyment of Zack Snyder’s “Sucker Punch” is entirely dependent on what type of film that piques your interest.

However, if you are seeking a tale that makes social commentary about the objectification of women, then you will be sorely disappointed.

Snyder’s first original work focuses on Baby Doll (Emily Browning), a girl who has experienced a traumatic series of events following her mother’s death. After her stepfather finds out that he has been left out of the ...

Review: Drugs Can Turn Life Around in Burger's 'Limitless'

3/18/2011 10:10am EDT
In weighty films like “Requiem for a Dream” and “Trainspotting,” Hollywood has shown audiences the dark consequences of addiction and the depths that people will sink to when they’re seeking a fix. Drug use causes life to spiral out of control for the characters in these stories, until they hit rock bottom.

However director Neil Burger’s tale “Limitless,” an adaptation of the Alan Glynn novel The Dark Fields, presents an alternate world, where a pill can completely turn your life around. The result is a substance far more addicting with equally dangerous consequences.

Things couldn’t g...

3/13/2011 2:00pm EDT
'Limitless' directed by Neil Burger (Illusionist) and written by Leslie Dixon (Hairspray) is based on the novel 'Dark Fields' a riveting, high-concept thriller written by Alan Glynn.

Both the film and the book asks the question: What would you do if you could take a pill that makes you smarter - as in...beyond genius, smarter?

Well for Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper) an unsuccessful writer with major writer's block, whose landlady is about to evict him, that question is a no-brainer. Eddie takes the pill of course. Not just once but over and over and over again. Not only does this top secr...
