The…

Jennifer Lawrence and Jodie Foster replace Casey Affleck as this year's Best Actress presenters

Jodie Foster and Rosemarie DeWitt on what drew them to Black Mirror

Preview photos for season 4 of Black Mirror feature a doctor and a starship captain

Black Mirror, whether it’s the original British incarnation or the Netflix-backed continuation, is a show that’s almost predictable in its unpredictability.

Black Mirror drops season 4 trailer, though we don't need reminders the world's a terrible place

Despite one shining light of hope known as “San Junipero,” season three of Black Mirror was another bleak and unsettling depiction of the cold and worrisome ways that technology and the darkest of human instincts can combine.

Chicago, see George Clooney and Julia Roberts in Money Monster early and for free

Though her last credited movie role was the ludicrously accented Delacourt in 2013’s Elysium, Jodie Foster’s been keeping busy. She recently flexed her directing muscles on episodes of House Of Cards and Orange Is The New Black, and is now gearing up for her fourth feature film, Money Monster. For this “real-time,…

Read This: Cast and crew reflect on Scorsese’s hellish classic Taxi Driver

Columbia Pictures didn’t exactly have a great deal of faith in Martin Scorsese’s violent urban nightmare Taxi Driver when the film premiered in 1976.
