New Again: Morgan Freeman

February 10, 2016

Morgan Freeman has always been a formidable force in cinema, so it should come as no surprise that The Film Society of Lincoln Center has named him the recipient of the 43rd Annual Charlie Chaplin Award.

New Again: Have Yourself a Movie Little Christmas

December 17, 2014

Everyone has a favorite Christmas movie, but the list of classics is endless. In the December 1990 of Interview, film critic Graham Fuller compiled his top 10 Christmas movies.

New Again: Colin Farrell

September 24, 2014

Rumor season is over: Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn are officially starring in the second season of HBO’s beloved crime drama True Detective.

New Again: Trainspotting

March 12, 2013

In 2009, director Danny Boyle won an Oscar for his film Slumdog Millionaire. He’s directed Hollywood power list-worthy stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz, and James Franco. Yet his most famous film to date remains a fairly low-budget, mid-’90s Scottish film about heroin addicts starring a little-known Ewan McGregor, Trainspotting.

New Again: Alicia Silverstone

February 27, 2013

A year and a half before she became known to generations of teen girls as Clueless naïve, selfish, but truly well intentioned protagonist, Cher Horowitz, 17-year-old Alicia Silverstone was basking in the glory of early-’90s teen stardom. Nearly 20 years later, Silverstone continues to act, pen vegan cookbooks, and advocate for animal rights. Most recently, it was announced that the now 36-year-old actress is to star in the Lifetime original series, HR.

New Again: Sean Penn

November 6, 2012

In the new indie movie This Must Be The Place, Sean Penn plays a retired rock star on a mission to find a Nazi war criminal and avenge his recently deceased father. Dressed to resemble The Cure’s Robert Smith, Penn’s character speaks in a whispery, high-pitched voice and wears heavy, glam-rock makeup—a striking departure from the public perception of Penn, the rugged, steely, serious actor.

New Again: Clint Eastwood

September 5, 2012

Clint Eastwood’s political leanings are no secret. The actor, director, scowling icon, and soon-to-be reality star has publicly supported the presidential campaigns of Republican Richard Nixon (although post-Watergate, Eastwood did criticize Nixon’s morals during an interview with Playboy), and was once mayor of Carmel in California.

New Again: Christian Bale

July 17, 2012

To describe this weekend’s imminent Batman release as a “blockbuster” would be a crass understatement—Christian Bale’s character arc as billionaire-cum-superhero Bruce Wayne has been one of the most engrossing (and highest-grossing) big-screen storylines of the last decade. His tenure as Batman ends with The Dark Knight Rises (out Friday), the final installment in Christopher Nolan’s impossibly popular trilogy.

Kenneth Branagh

February 6, 2012

Kenneth Branagh might seem like an unlikely choice to helm Francis Coppola’s $44 million production of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, companion piece to Coppola’s own Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992).

Evan Rachel Wood

November 26, 2008

Evan Rachel Wood’s restrained performances in Thirteen (2003), Pretty Persuasion (2005), Down in the Valley (2005), and her latest, The Life Before Her Eyes, have raised the specter of an all-American golden girl who yearns to be tarnished. Her romance with Marilyn Manson — which began in 2006 when (quel horreur!) she was 19 and […]
