Michelle Pfeiffer disappears into literal and figurative darkness in the bold Where Is Kyra?

Now and then, a movie attempts something so unorthodox that certain theaters notify customers in advance that what they’ll experience is not a projection error.

Batman Returns is a relic of an age when disgusting monsters only ran for office in the movies

It seemed ridiculous in 1992: the idea of a misshapen, braying lunatic running for higher office while barely bothering to disguise his own painfully obvious-bordering-on-theatrical creepiness.

Darren Aronofsky’s mysterious new project is a horror movie

For more than a year we’ve known pretty much bupkis about Darren Aronofsky’s latest feature Mother!, beyond the fact that it was “indie,” and that Jennifer Lawrence was attached to star.

Robert De Niro meets Marilyn Manson in the trailer for HBO’s Wizard Of Lies

The trailer for The Wizard Of Lies might give you a sweet pang of nostalgia, and not just for smoking cigarettes in the back of your friend’s shitty Honda while Marilyn Manson played in the background.

Over the summer, Variety broke the news that Angelina Jolie would not be taking part in Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder On The Orient Express, despite earlier reports that she was in talks.
