Julianne Moore gets her rock star on: Listen to the full soundtrack of 'What Maisie Knew'; Plus an exclusive clip

You’ve seen Julianne Moore play a lawyer, a housewife, a mother, and a post-apocalyptic survivor, but not until now have you seen her play a rock star.

For indie drama What Maisie Knew, Moore had to learn the swagger and the singing skills of a rocker. She plays Susanna, one half of the pair of negligent, self-involved parents of young Maisie (Onata Aprile). When Susanna and her art dealer husband (Steve Coogan) divorce, Maisie gets shuffled back and forth between the two of them, and soon her two new stepparents (Alexander Skarsgård and Joanna Vanderham) come to care for her more than her childish parents do.

Real-life rock group The Kills became Susanna’s band for the film. Moore sings with them for two songs on the soundtrack, “Night Train” and “Hook and Line.” READ FULL STORY

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's 'Don Jon' gets fall release date

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut Don Jon, formerly Don Jon’s Addiction, will be in theaters Oct. 18. Gordon-Levitt (who also wrote the film) stars as a modern day Don Juan from New Jersey who is addicted to porn. The film made a splash at Sundance and was quickly scooped up by Relativity Media for $4 million. Gordon-Levitt stated in February that he would probably have to cut out some of the film’s racier scenes to secure an R-rating. Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore and Tony Danza also star.

Julianne Moore and Lily Collins star in 'The English Teacher' -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

Julianne Moore’s recent characters know their way around a mid-life crisis.

Garnering acclaim for roles in The Kids Are All Right and Game Change, Moore excels at playing complicated women, a trend that is set to continue with Linda Sinclair, her character in the new film The English Teacher. Moore plays the titular high school teacher, a woman whose life outside the classroom hasn’t always measured up to her work inside. When a former student, Jason (Michael Angarano), returns home after failing as a playwright in New York, Linda refuses to let him give up his dream, and decides to mount his new controversial production at the school.

That may have been fine, but Linda also begins a relationship with Jason, which leads to an awkward love triangle between Linda, Jason, and Lily Collins’ “drama student extraordinaire” character, Halle — which naturally gives way to some combative scenes between Collins and Moore. “My character is kind of the catalyst for Julianne Moore’s character going a little bit crazy,” Collins tells EW. “[Moore's character] is kind of having this mid-life crisis, and me calling her out on her relationship with Michael and the play kind of start her on this downward spiral where she shows she’s a bit of a mess.” READ FULL STORY

Check out 'What Maisie Knew' trailer spotlighting child actress Onata Aprile -- VIDEO

A new trailer has been released for What Maisie Knew, the Julianne Moore and Alexander Skarsgård-starring divorce drama that premiered at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival.

A reimagining of the 1897 novel of the same title by Henry James, What Maisie Knew tells the story of a child shuffled back and forth between her two self-involved divorced parents, played by Moore and Steve Coogan. This new trailer — which has a rather bright tone given the heavy subject matter — showcases child actress Onata Aprile as Maisie finds herself amid the confusion of a changed family situation with new stepparents, played by Skarsgård and Scottish actress Joanna Vanderham. Check out the trailer below: READ FULL STORY

Julianne Moore and Alexander Skarsgard in new 'What Maisie Knew' poster -- EXCLUSIVE

Kramer vs. Kramer continues to stand as one of the most memorable, heart-wrenching dramas about divorce and the battle for child custody. But way before the Dustin Hoffman/Meryl Streep-starrer, there was What Maisie Knew, a 1897 book by Henry James about a child shuffled back and forth between her two divorced parents every six months. That turn-of-the-century novel has now been updated for a modern retelling on the big screen, in a film starring Julianne Moore and Alexander Skarsgård.

EW has the exclusive poster for the movie that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. On the new one-sheet, Moore and Skarsgård peek in from the edges, while young actress Onata Aprile (Maisie) is front and center, boring her big eyes “Mona Lisa”-style into anyone who catches a glance of this striking poster — check it out below.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt talks directorial debut 'Don Jon's Addiction' at Sundance: VIDEO

As the star of (500) Days of Summer (and let us not forget 10 Things I Hate About You), Joseph Gordon-Levitt knows something about Hollywood romance — and how to twist it. He stopped by Entertainment Weekly‘s Sundance interview lounge to chat with Anthony Breznican about his feature directorial debut Don Jon’s Addiction, a comedy he penned and stars in about a relationship between a man who watches too much porn and a woman (Scarlett Johansson) who watches too many romantic movies. Tony Danza, who plays Gordon-Levitt’s father, also joins the conversation. The film costars Julianne Moore.  READ FULL STORY

First Photo of Liam Neeson in 'Non-Stop' - EXCLUSIVE

Liam Neeson has taken to the skies for his upcoming thriller Non-Stop, and EW has an exclusive first image from the film.

Though it looks like Neeson might be holding a plane full of passengers hostage, he’s actually an Air Marshal trying to track down who on the flight is placing anonymous threats. It’s bound to be a suspenseful, tension-filled ride across the Atlantic considering the fact that everyone on board is a suspect, even Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery who co-stars as a stewardess, and Julianne Moore, who plays Neeson’s seat mate. Killing Them Softly’s Scoot McNairy also stars.

Non-Stop is Neeson’s second project with Jaume Collet-Serra who directed the Irish actor in the 2011 hit Unknown.

'Carrie' teaser trailer: 'She wasn't some monster. She was just a girl.' -- VIDEO

The new teaser trailer for the 2013 remake of Carrie — which debuted last weekend at New York Comic-Con — does a solid job of paying homage to Brian De Palma’s 1976 classic adaptation of Stephen King’s best selling novel, while also establishing its own identity. It’s basically a single shot, tracking over a small town and the fiery devastation caused by social outcast Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz). What’s most intriguing is the chorus of narrators sharing their impressions of the girl, all of which seem to be in reaction to the fateful night Carrie destroyed her high school prom (and her high school, and her town), indicating a less straightforward narrative structure than in De Palma’s film.
