There’s something magical about Evan Rachel Wood, or so the movies would have you believe. Charlie Countryman and A Case of You didn’t have much else in common, but both were about her impressive ability to spur even the most aimless young (well, young-ish) man to action in an attempt to win her over.
She works her mysterious magic yet again in the indie romcom Barefoot, as an extremely sheltered and naive young woman who crosses paths with the ne’er-do-well scion (Scott Speedman) of a wealthy Southern family. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Since the release of American Psycho in 2000, director Mary Harron has made only one feature, the 2005 release The Notorious Bettie Page. She’s hardly been idle, and has put a great amount of television work on her resume in the past decade. But now Harron returns to the big screen as the director of a gothic thriller called The Moth Diaries.
Harron scripted the film based on Rachel Klein‘s 2001 novel in which the boarding school friendship of Rebecca (Sarah Bolger) and Lucy (Sarah Gadon) is fractured by the arrival of Ernessa (Lily Cole). Is Ernessa a threat on more than a social level? Is she perhaps a vampire? Glean what clues you can from the new trailer, below. Read More »

It’d be an exaggeration to say that Rachel McAdams owes her career to Nicholas Sparks, but only somewhat. Along with Mean Girls, it was her starring turn in The Notebook that really established her as an in-demand young actress. So perhaps it’s out of gratitude that she’s returned to Sparks territory for The Vow, another predictably weepy romance penned by the bestselling author.
There’s no such excuse for fellow Sparks veteran Channing Tatum‘s decision to join her, seeing as he was doing just fine before he starred in last year’s Dear John, and has been doing even better ever since. Then again, getting paid millions to sing along to Meat Loaf and make out with McAdams is probably its own reward.
Directed by Michael Sucsy, The Vow follows a devoted husband (Tatum) as he attempts to woo his wife (McAdams) back when a coma wipes out the last five years of her memories — including the entirety of their courtship. More details after the jump.
