Ameowdeus
In case you were blessed with the superhuman ability to withstand more television after enduring the 3 1/2 hour Oscar ceremony, then perhaps you tuned in (late) last night for a very special episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Or perhaps you went straight to bed like the rest of us. But no worries, because the highlights are now online.

Gary Oldman Says He Was "Perplexed" By Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Only God Forgives'

There were few films last year as divisive as Nicolas Winding Refn's "Only God Forgives." The near silent, intensely violent, measured, methodical picture didn't carry with it the slick cool of "Drive," and many couldn't get with the movie that featured an emasculated Ryan Gosling hunting down the cop who killed his brother, at the insistence of his viperous mother. And you can count Gary Oldman as among those who didn't roll with the movie. Read More »

Watch: Gary Oldman's Pretty Great Impression Of Robert De Niro

Gary Oldman as Robert De Niro
Any time Gary Oldman pops his head into a movie — even something as ultimately middling as the "RoboCop" remake — is a reason to pay attention, and it looks like even when he's doing the talk show circuit, you'll want to tune in. Read More »

RoboCop
The fever pitch of fan obsessiveness has reached a weird high these days. While it's one thing to see set photos, on some sites fans will post pictures of trailers and trucks simply involved in the production even when nothing is happening. And when an image does manage to be snapped (usually from far away, out of context, unfinished, from a horrible perspective) of an actor in costume for whatever superhero movie or franchise they're making, it will be scrutinized to death as if it were the final version of what's going on the big screen. But all press is good press, right?

With J.J. Abrams banging down the door of everyone in Hollywood he wants to be in "Star Wars: Episode 7," or having his door banged down by agents who want their actors in the film, it's safe to say that nearly everyone remotely famous will have a, "I met J.J. Abrams for 'Star Wars' " story. So here's a couple more.

Robocop
Every movie should be approached with an open mind. Ideally, be it a film from Martin Scorsese or Friedberg and Seltzer, a reviewer should be going in without expectations, ready to play it as it lays. But it'd be dishonest to pretend that that was the case going in to "RoboCop," because it's a long-delayed remake of Paul Verhoeven's 1980s cult action sci-fi classic that, based at least on early buzz and previews, does without much of what made the original special — the satirical bite, the extreme violence, the hand-crafted effects et al. As such, even the most even-handed person could be forgiven for going in with a heavy heart, especially with the smell of the abysmal "Total Recall" redo still lingering like a fish head behind a radiator.

Amanda Seyfried In Time
Last summer it seemed Gary Oldman would finally end the long wait for his sophomore directorial outing in a grand fashion with his “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” co-star Benedict Cumberbatch and Ralph Fiennes all lined up for roles in the Eadweard Muybridge biopic “Flying Horse.” Despite the talent lined up, however, the film appears to be at an impasse.

Child 44 Gary Oldman Tom Hardy
It's "very much a character drama, also some kind of reverse love story between my character and Tom's character: they've been married for eight years when the movie starts and it's like a cold war between them," Noomi Rapace recently told us about her upcoming "Child 44." And it certainly seems like there is no love lost either between her co-stars Tom Hardy and Gary Oldman.

RoboCop
After two rather more uptempo trailers selling the familiar tale of "RoboCop" in a slick new package, a fresh international spot takes a more mournful tone, one that puts the emotional arc of the story first and the explosions second. And oh yeah, it features lots of new footage too.
