Angelina Jolie's New Movie Looks Oscar-Ready! 

So come Oscar time, we may hear, Angelina Jolie BEST DIRECTOR! That's right, the "Maleficent" actress made a follow-up to her "In the Land of Blood and Honey" with "Unbroken," the true story of Olympic track star Louis Zamperini who enlisted in World War II and ended up being a prisoner of war by the Japanese. This one's based on Laura Hillenbrand with musch by Alexandre Desplat.

Yup, it has Oscar written all over it complete with a script from the Coen brothers!

Jack O'Connell plays Zamperini and joining him are Garrett Hedlund, Jai Courtney, and Domhnall Gleeson.

Mockingjay Lives! Watch New "Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" Teaser-Trailer! 

I love the last "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" and I'm sooooo looking forward to seeing "Mockingjay Part 1!" It's the revolution! Take a look at the new teaser-trailer showing President Snow (Donald Sutherland) addressing Panem with Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna Mason (Jena Malone) by his side! It's all about propaganda! But then...Beetee aka Jeffrey Wright shows up and says, "The mockingjay lives!" Hurray!

We'll all see the mockingjay live on Nov. 21!

First Trailer for "Exodus: Gods and Kings!" See Christian Bale as Moses! 

Finally, the first trailer for Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings" is here, and boy oh boy, it promises to be epic! Like Cecil B. DeMille epic! Like a gargantuan "Gladiator!"

Take a look at the Red Sea parting! Listen to the cover of Simple Minds' "Belfast Child!" It's all glorious!

The film brings back to mind Darren Aronofsky's "Noah," but then again, did anyone see the movie? Hopefully, "Exodus" will not suffer the same fate so have faith all ye heathen!

In this adaptation, Christian Bale stars as Moses who dukes it out with Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton barely recognizable) so he can free the slaves and escape Egypt's plagues. So "Ten Commandments" here we come! But, according to Bale, there will be shocking stuff so Scott and company may be a bit liberal in adding or subtracting passages from the bible. Yup, just like "Noah."

I wonder how they will explain the parting of the Red Sea? Environment aka Global Warming perhaps?

Regardless, I still can't wait to see the movie when it opens in theaters on December 12, just in time for Oscar consideration!

"Exodus: Gods and Kings" also stars Aaron Paul, Ben Kingsley, John Turturro, and Sigourney Weaver.

It's time to take her boom box and book it. The bad news is she's broke and without wheels. The worse news is her grandma, Pearl (Susan Sarandon), is her only option-with a car, cash, and an itch to see Niagara Falls. Not exactly the escape Tammyhad in mind. But on the road, with grandma riding shot gun, it may be just what Tammy needs. (c) Warner Bros.
