The Vow Trailer

Last night, HBO began its new nine-part documentary series The Vow. The series takes a close look at NXIVM, an American multi-level marketing company and self-help group that was actually a cult accused of being a recruiting platform for a secret society known as “The Vow” (or sometimes “DOS”) in which women were branded and forced into sexual slavery.

Following the debut of the first episode of The Vow, HBO has released a more extensive trailer revealing what’s in store for the rest of the series. Filmmakers Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer (The Great Hack, The Square, Control Room) are diving into the deep end of NXIVM to reveal the complicated truths behind the many headlines driven by this, and one of them even has a personal connection to the group, which sparked the entire documentary project.

LOL: The Worst Movies Of 2012 Review Themselves

Many fans consider 2012 to be one of the best years for film in a long time. We’ve had great popcorn movies, huge epics, mind-melting indies and new films from some of the best filmmakers around. But every year has some stinkers and as good as 2012 has been, it’s probably been equally as bad too.

The team at NextMovie compiled four minutes of some of the worst movies of the year reviewing themselves. Which movies did they pick and what does each one say for itself? You’ll have to click below to find out. 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.

Looks like Maggie Gyllenhaal will play alongside her husband Peter Sarsgaard in a biopic of bluegrass pioneer Bill Munroe. She told ScreenCrave she’d been in the film about “Bill Monroe, who invented Blue Grass music had a kind of Sid and Nancy style affair with this woman Bessie Lee Mauldin throughout his life… T-Bone Burnett’s going to do the music and Callie Khouri who wrote Thelma & Louise wrote the script so we’re going to do that together.”

After the break, Scott Speedman takes a vow, Josh Hartnett may reunite with Paul McGuigan, and Real Steel adds one more. Read More »
