Movie Jail: This week's defendant is...Jason Reitman!

This is Movie Jail, a unique maximum security prison that houses some of the worst writers, directors, actors and producers from Hollywood and beyond. Their crimes? The offenses vary from convict to convict but most of these inmates have contributed negatively to the film world to some capacity* and his or her misdeeds have covered a long enough period of time that the authorities had...

The tone and subject matter are certainly a different direction for Reitman who adapted the screenplay from author Joyce Maynard's coming of age story. What you might think is a tale of a Mother and Son being held against their will by their captor, is actually something more than it seems. "Your Mother was...

New posters for Blue is the Warmest Color, Oldboy, and Labor Day

Our poster dump for the day is a bit on the dramatic side. We have new posters for OLDBOY, LABOR DAY, and two for BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR. My favorite out of the bunch here is BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR. I can't choose which I like more, though I do lean towards the one with the one/grey background. There's something about it that's more soft, more emotional. The one for LABOR DAY is not...

New stills from Machete Kills and Jason Reitman's Labor Day

Both of these films could classify as thrillers though they are much different in tone. New stills from MACHETE KILLS and Jason Reitman 's LABOR DAY certainly do a good job of showing this point. First up is MACHETE KILLS. I don't have to set this one up for you. If you've seen the first one along with the trailers then you know what you're in for. Sofia Vergara is lookin' pretty...
