Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg

Tom Hanks, Mark Rylance on ‘Bridge of Spies’

Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies opened in theatres in October, and--like so many of Steven Spielberg's films--it's bound to be up for a few Academy Awards once the nominations are announced. The film retells the story of American lawyer James Donovan, played by Tom Hanks, as he is asked to defend Russian spy Rudolf Abel, played by Tony-winnner Mark Rylance in court.

Brad Bird talks bright futures and hope in ‘Tomorrowland’

Disney's Tomorrowland recently arrived on Blu-ray and digital HD, and it's one of the rare films in recent memory that personifies hope and a future that could be brighter and better. From the cast to the story, and even in some of the smallest details, hope seems ever-present, which is a message writer and director Brad Bird, and screenwriter Damon Lindelof, imagined from the beginning.

Making ‘Hyena Road’: A conversation with Paul Gross

For Canadian actor, writer, director, and producer Paul Gross, the term "daunting task" doesn't seem to exist anywhere in his common lexicon. Previous to this hugely-scaled film on the Canadian campaign in the Afghanistan war, Hyena Road, he tackled Canada's role in The Great War in Passchendaele, so when the opportunity presented itself to hang out with Paul Gross for a morning's worth of Hyena Road conversation, I had to find out what his definition of a daunting task meant.
