Charlie Hunnam Quit 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Because He Had A Nerv
"Sons of Anarchy" star Charlie Hunnam is finally revealing the real reason he quit "Fifty Shades of Grey." The TV star had signed on to play billionaire Christian Grey in the erotic thriller, but a hectic schedule and too much stress led him to dump the role two months after he joined the project.

September 9th, 2014 12:05pm EDT
A Long Way Down
As far as novel-to-film adaptations go, the 2000 translation of Nick Hornby's High Fidelity set the bar. Pairing the reliably witty John Cusack and a yet to explode into stardom Jack Black with Hornby's smart, culturally literate observations about life, love and middle age, it was a thing of beauty.

So in 2014, here comes the third Hornby-based movie: A Long Way Down, boasting an attention-getting foursome including recent Emmy winner Aaron Paul and former James Bond Pierce Brosnan, and tackling harder subjects like attempted suicide and raising children with disabilities. Could it captur...

Any Given Sunday
In the hit 1999 film "Any Given Sunday," the biggest problem for the NFL's Miami Sharks is not playing the other teams - it's finding peace within its own ranks.

Aging star quarterback Jack "Cap" Rooney (Dennis Quaid) and battle-weary coach Tony D'Amato (Al Pacino) butt heads with young players and new management who are more concerned with generating a lot of money and the star-making potential of television than the ethics of the game or the health of its players.

After Rooney is knocked out of the game over an injury, he is replaced by an unknown third stringer who steals the spotlight...
