‘X-Men: First Class’: First Reviews Say Prequel Is ‘a Huge Home Run’

The Matthew Vaughn-directed film comes out June 3.
The first reviews of X-Men: First Class are starting to emerge and the word is bordering on astonishing.

After X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, who could blame anyone for thinking this was another cheap cash-grab that was going to not be very good, to put it mildly. Apparently we should all act like Daredevil and have no fear, is the message that is telegraphing out. More

Arnold Schwarzenegger: Not Dead Yet, at Least Abroad? (Analysis)

His career may not be as terminated as some people think, but the biggest obstacle to his art is his not-so-private life.

Just before Arnold Schwarzenegger’s paternity scandal erupted this week, QED International sold foreign rights to his film Cry Macho — which had been slated to begin production Aug. 24 — in Cannes. More

Lars von Trier Admits to Being a Nazi, Understanding Hitler (Cannes 2011)

Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg look on in disbelief as the “Melancholia” director shocks at Cannes press conference.

CANNES – Danish director Lars von Trier pulled a Mel Gibson in Cannes Wednesday, giving a shocking and hilarious press conference for his new film Melancholia in which he admitted to being a Nazi, to understanding Hitler and speculated that his next movie could be The Final Solution.

Von Trier has never been very P.C. and his Cannes press conferences always play like a dark stand-up routine, but at the Melancholia press conference he took it to another level, tossing a grenade into any sense of public decorum. In response to a question about his Germanic roots, Von Trier set off on a long and twisted answer that, if this were America, not Cannes, would have meant career suicide. More

Inside the Busiest Movie Theater in America

Details on how the AMC Empire 25 in New York City’s Times Square grabs audiences four times the national average without special tricks (no gourmet dining) but with lots of choices (“Rio”… and art films!).

It’s just past 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, April 13, and at least a dozen people waiting to be let in are peering anxiously through the glass doors of the AMC Empire 25 on 42nd Street in Times Square. One man is pacing the lobby, having slipped through unnoticed when an electrician entered.

The doors open, and the customers quickly buy their tickets, disappearing up the network of narrow escalators leading upstairs to five levels of auditoriums. Two buy tickets for the indie comedy Win Win, and three tourists from California are going to see the animated Hop. An elderly man says he’s hard of hearing and wants the loudest auditorium sound possible. He’s in luck; there is both an Imax and an More
