2009’s vampire tale “Let the Right One In,” an adaptation of the novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist, was the polar opposite of the current vampire craze, a quiet, atmospheric and beautifully shot piece of cinema. Swedish director Tomas Alfredson’s chilling take bears no resemblance to the likes of “Twilight” or “True Blood,” comparing favorably instead with cinematic classics “Rosemary’s Baby” or “The Shining.”

With a ridiculously stacked cast including Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Anthony Mackie, Nick Nolte, Michael Pena, Giovanni Ribisi and many more, in many ways this will be a big test test for "Zombieland" and "30 Minutes Or Less" director Ruben Fleischer. Working with a top shelf ensemble on a period picture, this is a number of firsts for the director, but as he tells EW (who has the first official still from the movie) that was what made it exciting for him.

Exclusive: With his new gonzo babysitter movie "The Sitter" opening up this weekend, we got to sit down and talk with its director, the multitalented David Gordon Green, best known for raunchy studio comedy "Pineapple Express" and most beloved for bittersweet indie romance "All the Real Girls." During the conversation, we had to get the lowdown on a plethora of projects he's been linked to. So, read on for updates on "Suspiria," the recently announced time travel romance "Q," and, in typical David Gordon Green speak, a whole bunch of other shit (including how his comic book horror movie "Freaks of the Heartland" might be headed for animation).

Review: 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows' An Engaging, Entertaining Sequel Brimming With Charisma & Top Notch Action

If “Sherlock Holmes” was the first movie to properly capitalize on Robert Downey Jr.’s career resuscitation after “Iron Man” became a mega-success, then “A Game Of Shadows,” its follow up, is the first sequel to understand how to sustain his appeal without allowing him to eat away at the scenery. Taking an “if it ain’t broke…” attitude towards the original’s combination of snooty deduction, seismic action and borderline silly bromance, Guy Ritchie’s stylish over-plotting actually works to a film’s benefit for once, because it keeps Downey’s febrile charisma in check even as the film expands the visceral, intellectual and even political stakes of its Victorian-by-way-of-MMA universe.

When you think about Bradley Cooper (People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2011), one usually imagines the jerks he’s played in movies (“Wedding Crashers,” “The Hangover” movies) and it’s easy to picture him as a tool in real life. But then you see him in interviews, and he’s a really nice guy. It’s kind of annoying.

Review: Understated & Powerful Documentary 'Knuckle' Is A Knockout

Given the recent explosion of mixed martial arts in the last several years, it seems like a no-brainer that someone would make a documentary about real-life pugilists who don’t just fight but have a real, deep-rooted beef with one another. But Ian Palmer’s documentary “Knuckle” isn’t a celebration of competition, or even the chronicle of a journey some ambitious hopeful makes en route to victory, or even defeat; rather, it takes a long and in many ways tragic look at two warring Irish clans who have engaged in a rivalry for so long that they keep it going without ever knowing why, and certainly without considering stopping it. A chronicle of two intertwined family histories whose ongoing conflict is as raw and unrefined as the fists of the men who fight, “Knuckle” is an understated but powerful look at a world people know little about, in a way they’ve never seen before.

Working with a young actor isn't always the easiest thing for established thesps like Ben Kingsley. Younger talent sometimes need more attention, and patience on set, as they are still cultivating the craft that veterans have honed into a finely turned art. But it seems that Kingsley got along smashingly with Asa Butterfield on the set of "Hugo," as he's now lined up a project to work with him again.

It was almost a year ago that we showed you the first images from the sci-fi romance “Upside Down,” a film we’re particularly interested in starring Kirsten Dunst and “One Day” actor Jim Sturgess, and a project which Dunst recently referred to as "kind of like an accessible 'Brazil.’” Now, some more images have surfaced of the bright and cheery Sturgess courtesy of the fansite Jim Sturgess Online.
