This is why awards season is stupid. (Full disclosure: I kind of like awards season sometimes, but it is stupid.) We can’t live in a world in which the media can see ‘The Theory of Everything’ or ‘The Imitation Game’ and just say, “That was a good movie,” then move on with our lives. No, it will be the battle for Best Actor between Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking and Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing.

Technology is the star in the first 'Imitation Game' trailer, which previews Benedict Cumberbatch's upcoming turn as Alan Turing, the historic mathematician who cracked the German's Enigma code during WWII. Could this be Cumberbatch's chance for an Oscar? Granted it's early for speculation, but he is the perfect choice to play such a part.

No matter how much we’d like them to be, characters in films don’t always have to be likable. They don’t always have to make good decisions or smart choices. They don’t have to necessarily behave in an entirely believable or relatable manner. They don’t even have to change, no matter what traditional storytelling tells us. But if they are unlikable and unbelievable and stupid and stuck, even the best-intentioned films will fail. And without even good intentions? They’ll simply insult.

'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' Review

Some franchises leave an indelible mark on you during your formative years, and inspire passionate, lifelong devotion from their fans – but is Jack Ryan really one of them? Given the messy lineage of the character on screen, played now by four separate actors (Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and here, by 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star Chris Pine), not to mention the fact that the films are wildly uneven in terms of quality, it seems like the answer would be no. But, the character’s resilience is apparently as indefatigable as Hollywood’s faith in intellectual property, which is why ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’ exists, a dull mishmash of Cold War spy games and ‘Bourne Identity’-style grit which shares much in common with the weakest of its predecessors – especially total forgettability.

It's a tough role, but someone's got to take it. The still-untitled Jack Ryan reboot has its star (Chris Pine) and director/villain (Kenneth Branagh) in place, but it's missing the necessary love-interest character. Now we're hearing that it's between Keira Knightley, Felicity Jones and Evangeline Lilly.

Though we're not out of the summer season just yet - even if 'The Dark Knight Rises' is the last truly huge film of the summer - but that doesn't mean that Oscar season isn't right around the corner. And one of the big contenders this year is Joe Wright's 'Anna Karenina,' which stars Keira Knightley, Jude Law and Aaron Johnson. Now there's a six minute preview online.

Steve Carell on His End of the World Plans: "Eating an Enormous Pizza"

Steve Carell is the quintessential sad-clown comic. Oh, he’s fully capable of going for broke in off-the-wall comedies like 'Anchorman' or 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin.' Yet even when Carell plays serious – as he has done in such well-received feature films as 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' or 'Little Miss Sunshine' – audiences find themselves laughing along through their tears.
You might have the same reaction from ‘Seeking a Friend for the End of the World,’ a deeper-than-expected Armageddon comedy that finds two lost souls searching for redemption before an asteroid takes out our planet. We recently posted our one-on-one conversation with Carell’s ‘End of the World’ co-star, Keira Knightley. Now it’s ‘The Office’ star’s turn to open up about his Armageddon menu and the one item he'd preserve in a time capsule if our planet was on the brink.
