The '70s and '80s may have been the height of the mustache trend, but the carefree, innocent days of the 1990s also saw a few notable caterpillars.

Check Out the Trailer: George Clooney Directs, Stars in The Monuments Men

George Clooney in The Monuments Men: Stealing Art Back from the Nazis

Originally posted 10/11/2013 11:30AM

After an end-of-summer smash as an astronaut in Gravity, George Clooney will be back onscreen for the holidays, this time in dashing military uniform, saving the world from the Nazis and priceless art from Hitler's grasp.

He gets some help in this feel-good war drama from Bill Murray, John Goodman and Matt Damon. But it's Cate Blanchett, looking pristine in World War II period garb, who appears to steal the show – at least as far as things look in the newly released trailer for The Monuments Men, set to open Dec. 18.

"How can I help you steal our stolen art?" ponders a gamine and decidedly French-acting Blanchett in the film, co-written and directed by Clooney.

Weekend Holiday Movie Guide: Watch This, Not That

Originally posted 12/08/2012 02:15PM

The hectic holidays are almost upon us, which means it's the perfect time of year to head to the movies – provided you don't get stuck with the cinematic equivalent of a fruitcake.

So arm yourself with this handy watch this/skip that weekend movie guide before your Aunt Mildred suggests a Red Dawn/Killing Them Softly double feature. (Seriously, don't even entertain that idea.)

Watch This: Les Misérables
Something about a grand, old-fashioned musical turns me into a swooning, giddy thing. Weeks later, I'm still humming "Master of the House," even though I don't know all the words. But the emotions are what really linger – Hugh Jackman's stirring performance as Jean Valjean, the ex-con who becomes a hero, is only outdone by Anne Hathaway's brief but soulful turn as Fantine, the young mother who sells her body to feed her child. Sure, it's maudlin and manipulative, but let's be honest, musical theater nerds, isn't that what we're paying for?

Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lawrence Movies Get Oscar Buzz Going at Toronto Film Fest

Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lawrence Movies Get Oscar Buzz Going at Toronto Film Fest

Originally posted 09/06/2012 10:45AM

The calendar says it's still summer and the kids call it back to school, but I say it's Oscar season.

Yes, already! I know this because on Thursday the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) blows into Canada, with 372 movies in competition representing some 72 countries. Sure, some of the buzzy movies from Cannes and Venice pop up, but Toronto is where everything starts to shake out. As usual, the biggest of the A-listers will be in town, towing their Oscar-bait projects with them.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis open the festivities with the world premiere of their time-travel mind-bender Looper, about a mob hitman (Gordon-Levitt) hired to kill his own future self (Willis). I'm not sure why you'd take that gig if you were Hitman the Younger, but I'll take it on faith that the film offers a convincing explanation.

Bill Murray's Flirty Night at French Bar

Originally posted 05/18/2012 12:30PM

Bill Murray seems to be indulging in the local nightlife while in France for the Cannes Film Festival.

Murray, 61, and director Wes Anderson arrived at the Hotel Martinez bar shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday evening. Murray in particular appeared to be thoroughly enjoying himself (and some drinks!), flirting with a woman at the bar and singing along with a piano player.

The actor was heard telling the object of his affection that he planned to give her a kiss at midnight, before realizing it was already the wee hours of the morning.

Around 3:30 a.m., Murray, still in very lively spirits, closed out the evening by paying tribute to his hometown and accompanying the pianist for a rendition of "Sweet Home Chicago." – Mary Green

Sacha Baron Cohen kicked off the tradition of Cannes publicity stunts Wednesday when he appeared as his latest alter ego to promote his new comedy, The Dictator. Cohen arrived atop his camel, Osama, bringing the iconic Croisette promenade to a standstill in the process.

Four-legged arrivals aside, this year's Cannes Film Festival promises to be one of the most star-studded in years with some of Hollywood's biggest names scheduled to appear. Bruce Willis and Bill Murray were also photographed Wednesday on the red carpet for Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom, which opens the festival.

Others on the list of expected VIP attendees: The reigning king and queen of Cannes, Angelina Jolie and fiancé Brad Pitt (his new crime drama, Killing Them Softly premieres at the festival), though they may have some competition in the supercouple category this year.
