When it opens on Friday, Money Monster will be the most preposterous film currently in theaters. No easy feat at a time when multiplexes also feature a superhero saga about a genius in a suit of flying armor fighting a man who spent 75 years frozen in an iceberg and an adaptation of a cartoon about a boy who can talk to bears and snakes.

The first trailer for Money Monster has arrived online, promising a tense thriller unfolding in real time starring George Clooney as a financial expert / TV personality who is taken hostage — live, on the air — by Jack O’Connell, while the whole world watches. The film definitely looks like a promising follow-up from director Jodie Foster, who previously helmed the Mel Gibson dramedy The Beaver and, more recently, episodes of Orange Is the New Black.

Jodie Foster has developed a strong directing career in recent years, including TV stops on both Orange is the New Black and House of Cards, but Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller hopes to return the Silence of the Lambs actress to more familiar territory. Should Hannibal live to dine another day on Season 4, might Jodie Foster herself introduce a new Clarice Starling?

Robert Downey Jr. and Mel Gibson first worked together twenty-four years ago in the 1990 film 'Air America' and have maintained a friendship ever since. Which may be why there's a rumor that Downey Jr. is trying to pull strings and get both Gibson and Jodie Foster into the Marvel universe, and possibly into 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron.'

'Elysium' may not have proven the strongest showcase for cinema icon Jodie Foster, while one her better-received works of the year may have gone entirely unnoticed. Following a low-key revelation that Foster directed the 'Orange is the New Black' episode "Lesbian Request Denied," we've learned that the 'Silence of the Lambs' star will soon return behind Netflix cameras to helm an episode of the eagerly-anticipated 'House of Cards' season 2!

Neill Blomkamp's latest sci-fi action effort, 'Elysium,' hits theaters this weekend. In the film, Matt Damon plays Max, a man living on a future, third-world version of Earth while the wealthy enjoy a utopian life on a luxury space station known as Elysium. When given only a few days to live, Max must become a reluctant hero to save himself -- and possibly the rest of humanity.
Damon leads a cast that includes Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, and William Fichtner, so we thought we'd take a trip down memory lane to see the cast of 'Elysium' way back when.

Here's the thing: in the future, the last thing you want to do is agitate Jodie Foster's secretary of defense Delacourt until she's forced to activate Kruger. What's a Kruger? In this new clip from Neill Blomkamp's 'Elysium,' Kruger is a black-ops-style private contractor played by Sharlto Copley, who also starred in Blomkamp's 'District 9,' and he has missiles. And he will use them indiscriminately.

'Elysium' Review

Here's one of my favorite jokes of all time. There's no punchline, it's just a sentence. "I've been rich and miserable, and I've been poor and miserable. And I'll tell ya: rich is better."
I don't know if this is what director Neill Blomkamp had in mind as the ultimate message of 'Elysium,' his visually stunning follow-up to 'District 9,' but beneath the dazzling spectacle, there isn't much else beyond that aphorism to cling to.
