James Gray on Cotillard, critics, and why 'The Immigrant' is his best film

A year after its Cannes debut, Gray's exquisite period drama opens today

It's hard to believe that it's a whole year since James Gray's "The Immigrant" was unveiled at Cannes to response that ranged from the rhapsodic to the sneering. A hot topic for the duration of the festival, it then dropped alarmingly off the radar, as its release was ever further postponed by The Weinstein Company. And as one of those who rhapsodised harder than most last year -- the film placed in my top five of 2013 -- I'm relieved to say that it finally reaches US theaters today.

New 'Interstellar' trailer raises the hype and teases the mysteries of the cosmos

Here's hoping this delivers on a very promising premise

Back when the first teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" dropped, I asked if we'd be talking about the film come Oscar season. With a November release date and arguably the industry's top blockbuster/prestige filmmaker at the helm, it was a warranted question. Now with the second trailer we dive a little further into what this story is, how it will be told, and the excitement hops up another notch.

May 18 at 9:00 p.m. ET on TLC), and in it Caputo takes her show on the road, prowling around New Orleans to assault people with news of the dead. Really, she's like a semi-ghoulish fairy godmother, isn't she? In this exclusive clip, she tags some woman on the street to tell her about her father who died from lung cancer.

Chris Pratt calls 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' 'mind-blowing' from the London set

This is just the start of our coverage on this one

There are so many things I want to tell you about the time I spent in London on the set of "Guardians Of The Galaxy."

Today, though, we're still embargoed on the vast majority of it, and so we're going to focus on one of the interviews that we conducted as a group. Seems like Chris Pratt's a good place to start in any conversation about this film, since this will be the biggest film role he's ever had, and much of the success of the film hinges on how the audience takes to him as Peter Quill aka Star Lord.
