It’s so difficult to make a self-aware medieval comedy. For the best success, you go with low-key humor like in the classic The Princess Bride. But many studios today want jokes that are circa 2011 (never mind that they’ll be dated later) or so much slapstick that the characters’ nuances get lost for a cheap laugh. The Shrek movies excelled at this, but their live-action counterparts have mostly failed: Ella Enchanted, Your Highness, Black Knight. More

EW released the newest photos from The Brothers Grimm: Snow White – starring Lily Collins and Armie Hammer – today, and while they’re very pretty, we can’t tell who the intended audience is.

So is it just a live-action version of the 1937 Disney movie, or will it have sly jokes for people our age?

Catching Fire, the second film in the Hunger Games trilogy, won’t hit theaters until Thanksgiving 2013, but it’s never too soon to start casting the sequel’s hottie, District 4 victor Finnick Odair.

Relativity Media has added two more actors to its already impressive cast for its yet-to-be-titled Snow White film. I make the distinction because Universal is also adapting the famous fairy tale, starring Kristen Stewart. Relativity’s version, described as an “adventure comedy,” already has Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, and Armie Hammer as (respectively) Snow White, the evil queen, and Prince Alcott. Now, Nathan Lane will play the queen’s servant Brighton, and up-and-coming theater star Robert Emms will play Alcott’s valet Renbock. More
One of our favorite parts of The Social Networks was watching Armie Hammer take on two roles as the Winklevoss twins. And then there’s Leaves of Grass, the small comedy film just released on DVD that has Edward Norton playing a pair of wildly different identical twins. What’s with all the brotherly love? we don’t know, but we sure aren’t complaining. We’ve put together a gallery of the best twin bros to grace the silver screen. More
When you settled in to watch The Social Network over the weekend did you imagine Andrew Garfield‘s character as played by a meerkat? What about Jesse Eisenberg‘s lines coming from the mouth of a cuddly lion cub? We couldn’t help but scrutinize the stars of Facebook movie to determine their spirit animal essences — and now we’re sharing our findings with you. Ten bucks if you can guess Justin Timberlake‘s.
