Mr. And Mrs. Smith Brad Pitt Angelina Jolie
It was three years ago when Angelina Jolie arrived with her writing and directing feature debut, with the ambitious Bosnian War drama/love story "In The Land Of Blood And Honey." It wasn't quite so well received, but she got the bug, and this winter she'll be in the Oscar mix as the helmer of the WWII drama "Unbroken." That film has a script from more experienced hands Richard LaGravanese and the Coen Brothers, but Jolie hasn't given up on writing her own material. And in fact, she has something that could see her reteam with Brad Pitt for their first onscreen project since "Mr. And Mrs. Smith" nearly ten years ago.

Fury
The prolific filmmaker David Ayer has two films coming out in 2014 and he’s already hoping the second one does better. Released just a few weeks ago, his action thriller “Sabotage” tanked at the box office and maybe have pegged the fact that audiences don’t really care about Arnold Schwarzenegger’s action star comeback. After five weeks in theaters, “Sabotage” has grossed a pitiful $10 million domestically.

Brad Pitt has never been afraid of tackling tough subject matter, particularly when it comes to his own Plan B production shingle. They were team behind this year's Oscar winning Best Picture "12 Years A Slave," and they have put their weight the films of Terrence Malick, a movie about statistics ("Moneyball") and HBO's upcoming AIDS drama "The Normal Heart."

Brad Pitt seems to like WWII movies. Of course, he swaggered around Quentin Tarantino's comic book version of the war in "Inglourious Basterds," and later this year he'll be part of the tank unit in David Ayer's grittier "Fury." And next, it looks like the actor wants to return to the trenches but this time for a little romance.

Under The Skin, Brad Pitt
With nine far too long years elapsing between 2004's "Birth" and the film festival premiere last year of "Under The Skin," Jonathan Glazer has been asked by many what took so long for the movie to get made. Indeed, we posed the question to him last year in Toronto.

The Counselor
When "The Counselor" was released last fall, it was an intriguing conundrum: how had Ridley Scott, the one-time bad boy auteur behind "Blade Runner" and "Alien," taken the first original screenplay by legendary American author Cormac McCarthy (of "No Country for Old Men" and "The Road" fame), and turned in something so vacant and bizarre? We puzzled over this at the time, both in our review and in comparing the final version to the lengthier, filthier, more philosophically-minded screenplay. With the recent release of the Blu-ray, not only do we get a more satisfying cut of the movie, but its accompanying commentary provides a shockingly honest and insightful glimpse into who Scott is as a filmmaker today.

The Dark Side Of The Sun Brad Pitt
Sometimes it seems like Brad Pitt emerged from the womb this handsome and talented. Not so, it turns out. As pop culture archeologist and LA Weekly film critic Amy Nicholson recently discovered by unearthing footage from the actor's little seen 1988 debut "The Dark Side of the Sun." We imagine these materials were located in a vast warehouse like at the end of "Raiders of the Lost Ark." Read More »

The Best Quotes of 2013
2013, we’re not quite done with you yet. To close off our coverage of the year gone by, we wanted to hand over the mic to the actors, directors and other film professionals who made waves, headlines, faux pas, announcements, pronouncements or funny gags throughout the year. And we’re changing up the format this time out, scouring the whole internet and not just our own archives for these little nuggets, mainly because we’re fairly sure you’ve all avidly consumed, and committed to memory every word of each of the 200-odd interviews we ran in 2013, and we’d be preaching to the choir.
