    John Malkovich and Benedict Cumberbatch each made their Comic-Con debuts — as themselves and as their first animated characters. The two actors were in San Diego Thursday to offer an early look at DreamWorks Animation’s “Penguins of Madagascar,” a sequel to 2012’s “Madagascar 3.”

     
  • Woody Allen's 'Magic in the Moonlight' is just that Jul 24, 2014 11:33 AM
    Woody Allen continues his Euro-streak with his mirthful “Magic in the Moonlight,” a whimsical, gimmicky comedy that contemplates the possibility that God and other spiritual mysteries might just be delusional coping mechanisms for the masses. Colin Firth plays Allen's gruff protagonist Stanley Crawford, a popular London magician who in 1928 performs as an Asian magician named Wei Ling Soo.

     
  • Editorial: Memories add strength to fabric of suburbs Jul 22, 2014 5:01 AM
    A Daily Herald editorial underscores the importance of the memories of places and events that have long since past. They are woven into the suburban fabric and are a big part of who we are as a community.

     
  • Charlie Hunnam talks about leaving ‘Fifty Shades’ Jul 21, 2014 7:41 AM
    The first trailer for the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie will be released this week and the original Christian Grey, Charlie Hunnam, says he can’t wait for the finished product. Speaking Sunday at a Fox event as part of the Television Critics Association press tour, the 34-year-old actor said he still believes in the film although he’s no longer a part of it. “I’m just really excited to see it. I was just really, really invested and wanted to work with (director) Sam (Taylor-Johnson) and play that character. I’m really, really curious.”

     
  • Arlington Heights author digs up ‘Wizard of Oz’ history Jul 21, 2014 7:02 PM
    Longtime Arlington Heights resident David J. Hogan has written “The Wizard of Oz FAQ,” a highly detailed and exhaustively researched look at the classic, 75-year-old movie that has spawned inferior movie sequels and prequels, zillions of “Oz” conventions and a watershed industry of memorabilia. “There is a reason why, 75 years later, people still respond to it,” Hogan said.

     
  • Church to show ‘The United States of Secrets’ Jul 21, 2014 5:07 PM
    The documentary "United States of Secrets" will be shown at 7 p.m. Friday, July 25, at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva. It goes behind the headlines to reveal the dramatic inside story of the U.S. government's massive and controversial secret surveillance program — and the lengths it went to try to keep it hidden from the public. Special guests will be church members Gail and George Tattersfield, whose niece, documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras, was the first person to take Edward Snowden seriously.

     
  • 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' raises common reboot questions: Why so serious? Jul 21, 2014 1:15 PM
    Most people who flocked to “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” over the weekend might have shared a twinge of ambivalence when it was all over: Rather than turn to one another with goofy, what-a-great-flick glee, they were more likely to shuffle out of the multiplex in a mood of subdued solemnity. Is “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” impressive? Without a doubt. Is it admirably smart and ambitious? You bet. Is it fun? Eh ... not so much.

     
  • Cameron Diaz bares all in ‘Sex Tape’ Jul 20, 2014 5:00 AM
    Cameron Diaz does something she’s never done before in her movie, “Sex Tape,” now in theaters. She gets naked on camera. It’s a first for the 41-year-old actress, who described the experience to Esquire magazine as “just a part of the role.”

     
  • ‘Apes’ swings to second week atop the box office Jul 20, 2014 1:48 PM
    “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” topped the box office in the U.S and Canada for a second week, outselling three new releases. The summer sequel from 21st Century Fox Inc. generated ticket sales of $36 million, bringing its total domestic gross so far to $139 million, researcher Rentrak Corp. said today in an e-mailed statement. Horror producer Jason Blum’s “The Purge: Anarchy” placed second with $28.4 million in its debut, while Walt Disney Co.’s “Planes: Fire and Rescue” was third.

  • Violence trumps all in clumsy ‘Purge: Anarchy’ Jul 17, 2014 4:53 PM
    “The Purge: Anarchy” takes place in 2023, one year after “The Purge,” a violent thriller that imagined an America so beset by crime that the government has instituted an annual holiday from law and order. Over the course of 12 therapeutic hours, “purgers” are allowed to rape, murder and pillage with impunity. The sequel takes the idea further, positing the ritualized violence as a manifestation of class warfares. But some of the have-nots are fighting back, including a young couple played by Zach Gilford and Kiele Sanchez of Carol Stream.

     
  • Visually splendid 'Planes' sequel takes dramatic dive Jul 17, 2014 2:32 PM
    It takes two-thirds into the leisurely paced “Planes: Fire & Rescue” for Walt Disney's animated comedy to catch a narrative tail wind and soar into a visually explosive parody of Irwin Allen disaster movies. (Mostly “Fire!” and “The Poseidon Adventure.”) But before we get to the good stuff, “Planes” does a lot of gliding on conventions and clichés without an engine to push it up and onward.

     
  • 'Last Sentence' should be inspiring, not dry Jul 17, 2014 6:30 AM
    Jan Troell's lackluster black-and-white drama “The Last Sentence” tells the true story of a great and strong-principled Swedish newspaper man who campaigned against the rising Nazis while his countrymen and political leaders followed a disastrous policy of appeasement.

     
  • 'Wish I Was Here' never reaches high potential Jul 17, 2014 6:30 AM
    The good will, sincerity and insightfulness that marked Zach Braff's 2004 smart directorial debut “Garden State” come up short in his long-awaited follow-up, “Wish I Was Here,” a generically broad and vaguely life-affirming film that constantly veers into sitcom territory even as Braff struggles to steer it to a higher level.

     
  • 5 questions with actor/director Zach Braff Jul 17, 2014 10:16 AM
    Dann interviews Zach Braff about his second film “Wish I Was Here,” kickstarted by 47,000 contributors. “You have to do right by 47,000 people instead of just one person,” Braff said. “Plus, you've got to fulfill 47,000 individual promises. One person gets a free screening in Chicago. Another person you said you'd propose their wedding for them. It's an extraordinary amount of work to do.”

     
  • 'Boyhood' a different kind of cinematic epic Jul 17, 2014 4:00 AM
    If you approach Richard Linklater's bold cinematic experiment “Boyhood” with the proper frame of mind, you will walk out of it having experienced an epic journey, one every bit as rich and moving as the entire “Harry Potter” series, except in one installment and without the wizards, goblins, ghosts and fire-breathing dragons. “Boyhood” has a dragon or two, but they are of the human variety.

     
  • 'Sex Tape' far from a screwball comedy classic Jul 17, 2014 2:58 PM
    A married couple's attempt to reawaken their love life goes badly awry in "Sex Tape," a raunchy tale trapped in a PG plot. Even the always-game Cameron Diaz and Jason Segal can't save this tired romp, a low point in a line of sex comedies since Judd Apatow's landmark film “The 40-Year-Old Virgin.”

  • New film ‘Book of Life’ animates Day of the Dead Jul 16, 2014 1:01 AM
    Guillermo del Toro is helping to open the “Book of Life.” The Oscar winner is producing the animated feature by first-time director Jorge Gutierrez. “Book of Life” is rich with imagery from Mexican folklore, with a special emphasis on the Day of the Dead, the food- and music-filled celebration of the annual return of the spirits of deceased loved ones.
