Rachel Weisz
Rachel Weisz fears she may have killed her chance to land a role in a Judd Apatow comedy - because the filmmaker hasn't called since she drunkenly confessed her "passion for him" at a Hollywood party.

"The Mummy" star admits she's a big fan of the "SuperBad" producer, and has been desperate to work on one of Apatow's films for years.

But she worries she went overboard when she professed her love for his work and is now convinced she's lost the opportunity to collaborate with him for good.

She says, "I worship Judd Apatow. I think he's extremely funny. His work is ground-breaking... I lov...

Rachel Weisz
Actress Rachel Weisz is already feeling the huge responsibility of playing Jackie Kennedy in husband Darren Aronofsky's new film - because she's a Brit portraying an American icon.

"The Lovely Bones" star will lead the cast in Jackie, which follows the beloved former U.S. First Lady as she copes with the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy, in 1963.

And, although she can't wait to get started on research for the role, she's also a little anxious about how America will accept her as Jackie.

Rachel Weisz Wants Botox Banned

Rachel Weisz is calling on movie bosses to ban Botox for actors, comparing the popular age-defying injections to illegal "steroids for sportsmen".

"The Mummy" star will turn 40 on Oscar night (March 7th) but she still refuses to follow the Hollywood trend.

And Weisz is appealing for her fellow stars to stop the cosmetic procedure and start accepting their real age and wrinkles if they want to give award-winning performances.

She tells Life & Style magazine, "It should be banned for actors as steroids are for sportsmen... Acting is all about expression."

'The Lovely Bones' Is Visually Beautiful, But Could Have Been So Much Better

1/14/2010 11:00am EST
The Lovely Bones
Peter Jackson's "The Lovely Bones" is one of the prettiest films I've ever seen. Aside from lovely aesthetics though, the movie is a disjointed mess, which leaves you wandering in the hereafter with unanswered questions.

Set in the early 1970s, Jackson makes it appear visually as if it brushed up against the era, absorbing its bright colors and remnants of energy from the 1960s. The shots have such beautiful intense color throughout the film, especially during the lighthearted periods.

It's established early on in the narrative that Suzie Salmon (Saoirse Ronan), the main character, ...

I'm really glad that I finally got the chance to see James Cameron's "Avatar" in 3-D. Visually Cameron creates an incredibly convincing alien world, paying attention to even the smallest details in the environment.

The vibrant jungle scenes bring out the advantages of 3-D and convinced me that as a medium it isn't just a lame gimmick, but rather an opportunity for filmmaking to mature in the coming years.

"Avatar" kept me glued to the screen, captivating me from the moment it began until the moment it finished. While the story and dialogue were predictable, I didn't necessarily c...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Princess And The Frog,' 'Invictus' & More

12/7/2009 9:47am EST
Last Tuesday I had the privilege of seeing Jason Reitman's "Up in the Air" and I have to say, it's a brilliant film. Much like he does in "Thank You for Smoking," Reitman takes a character that has the potential to be very unlikable and makes him sympathetic to the audience.

Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) is a man whose career involves laying people off around the country, which is a sensitive subject in America given the current economic state. Reitman exercises great care with Bingham, showing us that the man isn't coldhearted. Bingham inspires those he lays off to find new careers ...

Eight World War II Movies To Watch Before 'Inglourious Basterds'

8/18/2009 10:40am EDT
The Thin Red Line
With the release of Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds Friday, we're excited about what this often-perverse, slightly deranged and mostly genius mind will do with a movie about World War 2's Nazi-occupied France.

Looking back at the movies that Hollywood tackled on the same subject, most have been re-creations of bloody battles or stories of specific personalities involved, but very few ever added the comic punch that Tarantino's flick will surely carry out.

In anticipation of the film, here is a list of World War II films to watch before the release of "Inglorious Basterds" o...

Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...
