Brand New "Les Miserables" Poster 


Channeling the look of the original Broadway production, Universal has released the brand new poster for the adaptation of "Les Miserables" and it pretty much looked like the musical poster except it showcases child actress Isabelle Allen who's playing the young version of Cossette (Amanda Seyfried plays the older version of the character).

Universal has been doubling down in teasing us with this musical directed by Tom Hooper ("The King's Speech"). Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, and Anne Hathaway co-star. Last week, the studio released the show-stopping extended featurette of the movie (Want to see it? Click here), and now, this poster!

I can't wait! Christmas can't come soon enough!

“End of Watch” Movie Review – Why I Love This Film! 


Watching “End of Watch” was one of my many highlights at the Toronto International Film Festival. And interviewing the cast and writer/director David Ayer ("Training Day" screenwriter) sealed the deal! “End of Watch” is gripping and intriguing, and will not let go until you’re out of breath.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena star as rookie LAPD cops assigned to serve and protect the streets of South Central, Los Angeles. Following their every move is Gyllenhaal’s character’s video camera documenting their various missions. Anna Kendrick and Natalie Msrtinez co-star.

How many kisses does “End of Watch” get? Check out my review:
