Johnny Depp stars in this ham-handed techno-thriller about artificial intelligence that feels like it was created by a computer who knows what movies look like, but not how they actually feel ...

Rio2

This week, there's more than a few choices on the big screen, as Kevin Costner comes back with a different kind of sports drama in Draft Day and the sequel to Rio, Rio 2, crashes and burns pretty much on take-off. And Captain America: The Winter Soldier is also in theaters, as one of the better Marvel movies yet made. Below, some excerpts from our full reviews for all three films ...

Shailene Woodley on The Fault in Our Stars

Sunday March 30, 2014

Shailene Woodley

Shailene Woodley's a hugger. Making her way down the red carpet at the 2014 CinemaCon where she was on hand to promote 20th Century Fox's The Fault in Our Stars, Woodley hugged each and every reporter before answering any questions. Woodley comes across as intelligent and passionate, and she believes the film adaptation of the bestselling The Fault in Our Stars could be the most faithful book-to-screen adaptation yet:

Warner Bros at CinemaCon: Tons of Stars But a CGI Creature Steals the Show

Sunday March 30, 2014

Wally Pfister, Morgan Freeman and Johnny Depp

Warner Bros Pictures isn't resting on its laurels and instead is continuing to be committed to year-round releases and the launching of new franchises (the LEGO movies and the new Harry Potter series) with a packed slate of films ready to hit theaters worldwide in 2014/2015. The studio's coming off a record-breaking year in which they scored the triple crown: earning the top spot among all studios in domestic box office numbers as well as internationally and worldwide. The 2014 Oscars also earned a place in Warner Bros history as they netted 21 Oscar nominations overall, the most in the studio's lengthy history. All of these facts were delivered by CEO Ken Tsujihara to the 2014 CinemaCon crowd at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas before the mic was turned over to WB President Dan Fellman to introduce clips and talent from select upcoming releases.

Here's a rundown of what Warner Bros unveiled at this year's gathering of the National Association of Theatre Owners in Vegas:

  • First up, first-time director Wally Pfister hit the stage with two of his Transcendence stars Johnny Depp and Morgan Freeman. Depp and Morgan had a bit of trouble figuring out who was delivering which lines, and Depp joked, "He's god, by the way." The footage screened provided slightly more insight into this sci-fi film about artificial intelligence taken too far.

  • Next it was Godzilla director Gareth Edwards' turn to talk about his film. Edwards said that he'd literally completed the final cut on March 26th and that as the second biggest Godzilla fan on the planet (the first being producer Thomas Tull), he's really proud of the way the film's come together. Edwards assured the crowd that he tried to do it properly before joking that he's British and therefore he must be modest about these things. He also joked that he was sorry Godzilla himself couldn't make it to CinemaCon but unfortunately he's busy in a play on Broadway. After that introduction, Edwards' promise of doing it properly seemed to have not been just empty words as the footage received the loudest round of applause of any shown during the entire presentation.

  • Behind the Scenes of Let's Be Cops

    Sunday March 30, 2014

    Damon Wayans Jr and Jake Johnson

    20th Century Fox could have the sleeper hit of the summer on their hands with the R-rated comedy Let's Be Cops. Starring New Girl's Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr, the raunchy comedy finds two buddies dressing up as cops for a masquerade party. Hijinks ensue when they're mistaken for real police officers. And dressed in cop costumes, Johnson and Wayans Jr hit the red carpet at the 2014 CinemaCon to talk about the film and whether we'll be seeing any of their New Girl co-stars also showing up in Let's Be Cops:
