Logan Lerman might be known for the forgettable “Percy Jackson” films (a sequel arrives this summer), but he almost scored the coveted lead in “The Amazing Spider-Man” a few years ago and he impressed with his acting chops in “The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.” Casting directors and filmmakers have noticed. He’s getting called up into the big leagues and will join Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf in the WWII tank thriller “Fury” that “End of Watch” filmmaker David Ayer is writing and directing for Sony Pictures. The movie is already set for a Fall 2014 release and it’s an interesting one because it will be Ayer’s first non police-centered movie. Let’s hope unlike the almost great “End Of Watch,” the visual material doesn’t stand in the way of a good story and strong dynamic.

We've now spent nearly two decades with Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy), tracking their romance from country-to-country, and when we catch up with them in "Before Midnight," they're finally together and with a family. But is it bliss?

You can feel it, the weather is getting warmer, those chilly winter nights are giving way to the soft evening breezes of spring, and pretty soon summer will be here. And there is probably no cinema couple better suited for the hazy romance fueled by the possibilities of warm weather and endless nights than Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy), and "Before Midnight" will soon be here to cap off a beloved trilogy.

Wait, what is this movie? We have to admit either this flew entirely under our radar, we forgot about it or just plain didn't care. And maybe that's how Universal felt as well considering "The Purge" comes out next month and they're only starting to market the thing now, but, since it's coming from Team Blumhouse, the budget was probably about a million bucks and they'll make money on this if just five people show up. Considering it's a violent thriller with a "clever" premise from guys behind "Paranormal Activity" and "Sinister," people will probably line up in droves.

Made nine years apart from each other, Richard Linklater's "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset" hold a very special place in the hearts of many, in terms of contemporary romances. The first film, released in 1995, saw Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy play twentysomethings who spend a night together in Vienna after meeting by chance on a train. Nine years later, the second film saw them meet up in Paris, older and a little wiser.

Ethan Hawke Says Many "Forgettable, Stupid Movies" & "Mediocre Performers" Have Won Oscars

...well, we can't really argue, can we? While Oscar history is littered with actors and movies who more than deserved the statues and the glory, it's also filled with head scratching decisions and winners that haven't stood the test of time. But knowing that, and saying that are two different things, particularly when you're in the industry, and Ethan Hawke may be having his own Joaquin Phoenix moment. He even used the same carrot metaphor...

It will surprise no one who followed the film’s extremely positive reception at Sundance earlier this year, that Richard Linklater's “Before Midnight” (our review here) has been creating quite a stir on the other side of the pond following its European premiere at the Berlin Film Festival. With many of the journalists we met citing the film as one of their favorite of the festival so far, we got to sit down in a small group with stars and co-writers Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke for what proved to be a fairly riotous interview, in which, while they both maintain repeatedly how unlike their onscreen counterparts they are, certainly the chemistry of old friends was there in spades.

Sundance Review: Love Is Hard In The Charming But Emotionally Challenging 'Before Midnight'

What happened at the cliffhanger ending of 2004's "Before Sunset?" Did Jesse (Ethan Hawke) manage to catch his flight back to the United States or did he and Celine (Julie Delpy) finally re-consummate their nine-year-after-the-fact romance? These questions are answered in Richard Linklater's trilogy-concluding "Before Midnight," a charming and funny, but much more emotionally difficult and pained picture than one might have imagined. Those expecting another swooningly romantic movie are going to be in for a rude awakening. While "Before Midnight" certainly has its appealing moments of allure and levity, it's ultimately more "This Is 40"-style pain with much more honesty and real bite than Judd Apatow would likely ever go for, and when "Before Midnight" bares its fangs and becomes uncomfortable there are few moments of comedic relief or a new jaunty scene to cut to.
