The cast of Korean director Bong Joon-ho's (The Host) first English-language movie, the post-apocalyptic drama Snow Piercer, was already impressive, but it just got even better. Captain America: The First Avenger star Chris Evans was the first to sign on, but he was soon joined by two-time Academy Award-nominated actor John Hurt (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) and Academy Award-winner Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton). Now, the cast has gained another Oscar contender as THR reports Octavia Spencer (The Help) has also joined the cast. more about Snow Piercer >> Posted 02.05.12 by BrentJS

Paul Walker is adding to his post-Fast Five resume with another thriller. For those not closely following Walker's career, the actor starred in the 2010 crime thriller Takers after 2009's Fast and Furious.
THR reports Walker has signed on for Hours, a thriller set post-Hurricane Katrina that will follow Walker as a father trying to keep his newborn daughter alive in an abandoned hospital. From the sounds of the plot, it doesn't look like Walker will be getting into any car chases or stealing anything, which was likely a deliberate choice.
The movie will be the directorial debut for screenwriter Eric Heisserer (The Thing prequel, Nightmare on Elm Street remake). Buried producer Peter Safran is reuniting with Walker for Hours; the actor just finished working with Safran on another thriller titled Vehicle 19.
Hours will start production in New Orleans starting in March 2012, after which Walker will likely start work on Fast Six, which already has a release date of May 24, 2013. one more for World War Z; Octavia Spencer to deal some laughs >> Posted 10.08.11 by Ryan
Oscar season has officially begun with The Help. Critics are lauding the performances of Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer, but they are split on whether it's a good movie or not.

"...a delicious peppery stew of home-cooked, 1960s Southern-style racism that serves up a soulful dish of what ails us and what heals us."— Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
"...serves as an enlightening and deeply affecting exercise in empathy for those who've never considered what life must have been like for African-Americans living with inequality a full century after the Emancipation Proclamation called an end to slavery."— Peter Debruge, Variety
"...fans of the best-selling novel can rest easy: The warmly engaging book has been made into an equally affecting movie."— Claudia Puig, USA Today
"The Help is like a lot of Southern fare made with Crisco: you'll want to gobble it up, but it's not particularly nourishing."— Sara Stewart, New York Post
"...a fairly typical Hollywood flattening of history, with powerful villains and disenfranchised heroes."— Karina Longworth, Village Voice
"...a big, ole slab of honey-glazed hokum."— Manohla Dargis, New York Times
The first trailer has debuted for actor/director Tate Taylor's (Winter's Bone) adaptation of The Help, based on the novel by Kathryn Stockett.
Set in a segregated city of Jackson, Mississippi, during the 1960s The Help tells the stories of three women — young college graduate Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan (Emma Stone) and African American maids Aibileen Clark (Viola Davis) and Minny Jackson (Octavia Spencer) — and how their intertwining lives represent the racial divide of their southern town.

Drag Me to Hell started filming last year before the financial crisis really took hold, but in interviews with Fearnet, the stars of the movie had some fun playing with the implications of its timely release.
Having overheard a conversation about it in her bank, Alison Lohman concludes, "All bankers are talking about this movie." And asked whether she could be considered the hero for putting a curse on a loan officer, Lorna Raver replies "Absolutely." Another cast member, Octavia Spencer, goes even further. "All evil starts with banking," she proclaims with as much of a straight face as she can muster. Posted 05.17.09 by reelz
