Trainspotting
Miramax

Danny Boyle's 1996 dark dramedy 'Trainspotting,' based on the Irvine Welsh novel of the same name, follows a group of friends in a low-income area of 1980s Edinburgh, Scotland, as they try to kick their heroin habit. The film launched the careers of its young stars, including Ewan McGregor and Kelly Macdonald, and is ranked at number 10 on the British Film Institute's list of 100 greatest films of all time. Eighteen years later, we revisit the cast of this edgy classic and see what they're up to now.

'Star Wars: Episode 7' has been rumoring the return of original cast members since the project was announced, but as the film is taking a new direction now that J.J.

If you were wondering how closely 'Star Wars: Episode 7' would be tied to the previous films in the franchise, the answer is it's looking very much like "at the hip." We've just learned that the evil Emperor Palpatine would be making a return in J.J. Abrams' long-awaited sequel, and now it looks like another supposedly dead character is set to show up. After all, it really wouldn't be a 'Star Wars' movie without some kind of appearance from Obi-Wan Kenobi, right?

‘Jack the Giant Slayer’ Review

Jack the Giant Slayer review
Warner Bros.

The third row of an IMAX screen is a sufficiently disadvantageous perspective to give you a taste of the way the hero of 'Jack the Giant Slayer' sees the world.

‘The Impossible’ Review

The Impossible
Summit Entertainment

Summit

Although it doesn't officially hit theaters (in limited release, of course) until later this month, 'The Impossible' has already proven divisive, splitting critics into two groups: those who think its manipulative junk and those that think it's a harrowing and heartbreaking experience.
