First trailer for The Promise tells a love story amid the Armenian Genocide

The explanation behind the Armenian Genocide is not easy to explain, but simply put, the Ottoman Empire (what would later become Turkey) rounded up and murdered over a million Armenian men, women and children throughout the first World War. A horrific event to be sure and one which the Turkish government continues to deny. Sounds like something you'd want to frame a love triangle...

Exclusive: Movie CliffsNotes - Mission: Impossible

Truth be told, the first MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE confused the hell out of a lot of people when it first came out, but that didn't stop them from loving the shit out of it anyway. The plot goes from some crazy twists and turns, but eventually gets down to what we really want to see, which is Tom Cruise flying through the air with an exploding helicopter behind him. Really, that's...

Exclusive Interview: Simon Pegg & Rosamund Pike

Being based in Montreal, not exactly a mecca for film junkets, it’s rare that I get to sit down 1:1, or in this case 1:2 with big stars like Simon Pegg and Rosamund Pike . Lucky for me, attending the Toronto International Film Festival has been the exception to this rule, and with HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS being part of the fest, I had the chance to have a quick chat...

Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Hector and the Search for Happiness Star Simon Pegg

The very first time I saw the utterly brilliant SHAUN OF THE DEAD, I knew that Simon Pegg was going to be a major force. As a comedic actor, he is able to capture so much depth while still making us laugh at his follies. This wonderfully charismatic talent has shined in SHAUN, PAUL, HOT FUZZ, THE WORLD’S END and a number of big franchise flicks including MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST...
