Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij wrote the film together (in which Marling stars and Batmanglij directs), using their own experiences and societal concerns to drive the mystery towards its conclusion. Full of poetry and nuance, The East imbues our societal breakdown with hope just as much as they do with accountability, forcing us to question the world we complacently live in.... Read More

Jun 14, 2013  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

Remember when Jack Bauer would jump through windows and narrowly escape death in a Chinese prison right before saving the President of the United States from an assassination attempt – all within a day’s time? Yeah, the 48 Hour Film Project is kind of like that. Except, instead of Kiefer Sutherland, the heroes are a team of filmmakers. Instead of guns threatening to shoot civilians, they have camcorders in their place. And OK, instead of saving the U.S. from an attack, they're looking to save themselves a seat at the Cannes Film Festival. All this is done within a 48-hour window (see, same thing).... Read More

Jun 14, 2013  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

30-year-old actor Henry Cavill is going to be seeing a rise in popularity due to his role as Superman in the upcoming Zach Snyder film Man of Steel (which is being released June 14). Though the actor popped up on radars after his work in the Showtime series The Tudors, in which he played Charles Brandon (1st Duke of Suffolk), there's nothing quite like a big-budget action film that demands skin-tight clothing and intense brooding to make a man everyone's new crush....

The Story Behind The Great Gatsby Film Adaptations: Then and Now
