Released in 1988 and starring future megastar Tom Hanks, 'Big' told the story of a boy who makes a wish to be big at a magic fortune-teller machine. When he wakes up the next morning, he finds that he has become an adult literally overnight, and that being big isn't all it's cracked up to be. 25 years later, we revisit the cast of this treasured classic and see what they're up to now.

Though Dan Brown's reign as the king of airplane reading may be over, his Robert Langdon books produced two very successful movies. So it's no surprise that Brown's 'Inferno' is being adapted for the big screen, with Tom Hanks returning as Langdon, and with Ron Howard directing, and has been set for a December 2015 release.

The 'Saving Mr. Banks' trailer has arrived via our friends at Moviefone, giving us the first footage of what promises to be one of the most talked about movies this awards season.

Oscar campaigns are not won with a single photograph. And yet, when you show we a picture of Tom Hanks playing famed entertainment mogul Walt Disney in the upcoming film ‘Saving Mr. Banks’...well, we're convinced the two-time Oscar winner can reserve a seat in the Dolby Theatre for the 2014 Oscars, because a nomination seems likely.

It's been a few years since we last saw a film from Paul Greengrass, but the new 'Captain Phillips' trailer shows that the director of 'The Bourne Ultimatum' hasn't lost his style at all. In fact, the movie looks terrific. That's what you get when you put Greengrass at the helm of a terrifying/exciting true story and cast Tom Hanks in the lead role.

Last night, Justin Timberlake hosted 'Saturday Night Live' for the fifth time, forever cementing him as one of the immortal show's greatest and most enduring guest hosts. Rather than give us a traditional opening monologue, Timberlake welcomed everyone to the show and immediately whisked us away to the Fiver Timers Club, where all of the great SNL hosts get to hang out...and where Dan Aykroyd is the bartender.

'Cloud Atlas' Review

Trying to review 'Cloud Atlas' an hour after you've seen it is like trying to recite the Bible from memory after you've read it for the first time. I'll definitely be able to cover the big points, but the fine details are going to get lost: there's no way to take it all in on just one viewing.
Whatever its missteps, directors Tom Tykwer, and Andy and Lana Wachowski have crafted a staggeringly ambitious piece of cinema -- or really six pieces of cinema, strung together and interwoven and speaking to one another in all kinds of ways. Sitting here a short while after I saw it for the first time, I can't really say I fully understand a lot of the "why" -- why this character is so important to the fate of humanity, or why that character needs to activate that particular device -- but the "what" is always so compelling, I was happy to be puzzled. I still am.
