Watch: 'Key & Peele' Valets Finally Meet Liam Neeson, Get Excited For 'Non-Stop'

Key & Peele Liam Neeson
"Key & Peele" is my jam. Right now, there are few people on TV funnier than Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. And of their many skits that have been passed around online, the most popular ones have been centered on their valets who are big fans of action movies, and in particular of Liam Neesons (yes, with an extra "s"). And now they've met him. Read More »

The Dark Valley
A stranger rides into an isolated hardscrabble town, embarks on a personal quest for bloody revenge and along the way becomes the townspeople's champion: so far, so every Western ever made. But the big twist here is that everyone's speaking German, even Sam Riley who plays the film's hero, and the mountains that hem in the small community are distinctly Alpine. Welcome to "The Dark Valley" from director Andreas Prochaska, playing this week at the Berlin Film Festival, which in transposing to rural Austria a story that might usually play out in Tombstone or some logging town in Colorado, may be pretty much the first attempt at a "schnitzel Western" that we've seen.

Painful: Watch Entertainment Anchor Mistake Samuel L. Jackson For Laurence Fishburne

Samuel L. Jackson is not Laurence Fishburne
Youch. Yes, Samuel L. Jackson is ubiquitous, practically his own genre and willing to take on work in the high and low arts of any avenue of cinema. Hell, he’s not beyond doing commercials either, and doesn’t need to resort to doing them overseas like some of the world’s bigger stars (like Leonardo DiCaprio, George Clooney and Brad Pitt). But one commercial Jackson did not appear in was Kia's Super Bowl ad, which saw Laurence Fishburne reprise his role as Morpheus from “The Matrix” films. But somehow that didn’t stop KTLA Entertainment anchor Sam Rubin, “a multiple-Emmy winner” we’re told, from asking Jackson about starring in the Super Bowl ad. And the reaction he got was priceless.

Sienna Miller Whit Stillman Love And Friendship Chloe Sevigny
Though we waited far too long between Whit Stillman's "Last Days Of Disco" and 2011's "Damsels In Distress," it looks like the filmmaker won't be taking such a long break again. Last summer came word that he was working on a movie adaptation of Jane Austen's "Lady Susan," but we were thrown for a loop when when it was revealed at the end of January, that the concept was being turned into a book, “Love & Friendship: An Adaptation of Jane Austen’s Unfinished Novella Concerning the Beautiful Lady Susan Vernon, Her Loves and Friendships, and the Strange Antagonism of the DeCourcy Family.” So is the movie dead? Nope.

George Lucas Star Wars
After some major deals and a dose of new blood, the “Star Wars” franchise has finally reached the point where scores of new developments can be tracked with nary a mention of George Lucas within. Instead, J.J. Abrams continues to meet with every massive name around for potential roles in “Star Wars: Episode 7," but it wasn’t too long ago when a hint to the direction of the franchise came from one man alone, and today we’ve got a look back at that quaint time.
