Ben Affleck's 'Argo' Poised To Beat 'Cloud Atlas' At Box Office

10/28/2012 9:21am EDT
Big-budget and highly buzzed about film "Cloud Atlas" isn't performing as well as industry insiders hoped.

The film, as well as "Argo" and Halloween-themed "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D," are all expected to earn between $11 and $13 million over the weekend, according to early Friday numbers.

Cloud Atlas
This weekend’s major movie release, Cloud Atlas, is making a lot of waves because each of its stars plays six characters in the film. That includes Tom Hanks, Hugo Weaving, Hugh Grant and Halle Berry. One of Berry’s characters was a Korean man in the future, Dr. Ovid. She brought her daughter to set the day she played Ovid.

“I can’t remember the last time I had this much fun on a movie,” Berry said. “There was one day my daughter came up, when I was dressed as Dr. Ovid. She loved coming to see all the different characters, and she liked most of them, but this day I just said, ‘You’re going...

Review: 'Cloud Atlas' A Brilliant Film That Takes Us On A Trip Through The Human Soul

10/26/2012 1:04pm EDT
'Cloud Atlas'
'Cloud Atlas' is a film that some people like myself will find absolutely brilliant, while others like John (the other half of 'Two Jews On Film') will feel just the opposite.

Some critics have already called it pretentious as well as an indulgent mess. All these varying opinions simply prove one thing. When it comes to movies, art, music,'s all so subjective. Therefore, my suggestion is go see this film and judge for yourself.

'Cloud Atlas' (directed and written by Lana Wachowski and her brother Andy of the 'Matrix' fame - along with Tom Tykwe) is based on David Mitchell's b...

Weekend Movie Preview: 'Cloud Atlas,' 'Chasing Mavericks,' 'Silent Hill: Revelation 3D' & 'Fun Size'

Cloud Atlas Poster
Last Saturday night I had some friends over for a horror movie marathon. One of the films we watched was Joe Dante’s “Gremlins,” which I’m ashamed to admit I hadn’t seen before. It felt a little out of place in October, since I didn’t realize ahead of time that the movie happens around Christmas, but I still enjoyed it immensely and laughed a lot. All the zany Gremlin behavior and the tiny props operated by the Gremlins were classic. Probably the funniest thing about the flick is that a bonehead move by Corey Feldman’s character is what causes everything to spiral out of control. So at the ...

Susan Sarandon
If you've got it, flaunt it, and that's just what Susan Sarandon did at the "Jeff, Who Lives At Home" premiere in Los Angeles yesterday. But she's a classy sexagenarian, and that's just one of the things we love about her.

We also love that she's still got the same face (more or less) we've seen on screen since "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" in 1975. She's aged gracefully and beautifully without succoming to the botox and facelift craze like so many other actresses do.

In the film she plays Jeff's (Jason Segel) mother. Jeff is a slacker who spends much of his time smoking marijuana and e...
