Jacques Audiard's latest film won the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival.
It turns out most Memorial Day movies aren’t very good.
Asif Kapadia's ('Senna') documentary is a biography of sorts, but also an incredible tribute to her as an artist.
This year's Cannes jury includes Guillermo del Toro, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Sienna Miller, and is headed up by Joel and Ethan Coen. What were their favorites of the fest?
Michel Franco’s 'Chronic' stars Tim Roth as a homecare nurse who gets too involved with his patients.
Disney’s ‘Tomorrowland’ held in first place for the three-day weekend with an estimated $32.1 million. ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ came in second with $30.3 million. ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ was down 47% in third while the ‘Poltergeist’ reboot opened as expected, in fourth place.
Matt Damon leads the "'Cast Away' on Mars"-esque film, which also stars Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Kate Mara.
Which would you save? ‘Star Wars’ or ‘Star Trek’? Han Solo or Indiana Jones? ‘Game of Thrones’ or ‘Breaking Bad’? Watch as Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt are forced to choose.
It looks like she won't star in 'The Circle' opposite Tom Hanks after all.
David Letterman's final 'Top Ten' and yet another enthusiastic 'Mad Max: Fury Road' recommendation also play roles in this week's Top 5.
