Anne Hathaway's voice is front and center in this new trailer for "Les Miserables," a sure vote of confidence in her ability to carry a musical movie.
That's somewhat surprising, given that the film's other star, Hugh Jackman, has Broadway credentials and is probably far more accustomed to singing than Hathaway (her song-and-dance routine with her future co-star at an Oscar ceremony...Read more »

The first trailer for "The Great Gatsby" is now online, offering more than two-and-a-half minutes of images from Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel.
It's a chance to hear Leonardo DiCaprio, as Gatsby, do a lockjaw accent, while Carey Mulligan, as Daisy Buchanan, puts on an old-money Kentucky drawl. Joel Edgerton ("Warrior") plays her husband, Tom,...Read more »
This week's episode is all about Hannah. She heads back to her hometown (Lansing, Michigan) to celebrate her parents' anniversary.
It makes sense that Hannah isn't a native New Yorker. Not only is she always trying to create memories in order to write her memoir, but she's trying to be the city girl she wasn't raised to be. In Lansing, the young pharmacist (he went to Hannah's high school)...Read more »

One problem with being a family-oriented blog is that we can't post stuff like the newly-released and slightly risque teaser for "Anchorman 2," the long-awaited Will Ferrell comedy. We can tell you that it features the old foursome of Ferrell, David Koechner, Paul Rudd and Steve Carell. But we can't link to it, so our best advice is to visit your favorite search engine. Happy viewing....Read more »
The new trailer for “Skyfall,” the third James Bond film to star Daniel Craig, was posted earlier today, offering a glimpse at this moody-looking, Sam Mendes-directed installment.

Sacha Baron Cohen's spoof of rogue-state tyrants has been shut out of the Central Asian state of Tajikistan, according to Agence France-Presse.
Cohen's character, General Admiral Aladeen, may hit a little too close to home for Tajikistan's current president, Emomalii Rahmon, a former Soviet apparatchik who came to power during a civil war and has ruled the country since 1992. The U.S. State...Read more »
As a tribute to Donna Summer, who died today at 63, here's the opening credit sequence to her 1978 film "Thank God It's Friday." Summer, who stars as an aspiring disco singer, is probably the only person involved with this flop who didn't regret it.
Set in the fictional Los Angeles nightclub The Zoo, "Thank God It's Friday" follows several characters over the course...Read more »
This week's episode of "Girls" was all about the rejected doing some rejecting. And, of course, Hannah's never-ending quest for good essay material.
Despite at first being disgusted by her boss' sexual harassment, Hannah decides she'll sleep with him -- it'll make a good story, after all. She throws herself at him, but is rejected and laughed at.
At even the hint of possible...Read more »
