Director's Chair: Get to Know 'The Revenant' Director Alejandro González Iñárritu

Wed, 12/30/2015 - 22:12

Alejandro González Iñárritu doesn't exactly make the most cuddly, family-friendly movies around. He's more known for his raw dramas that unite the lives of total strangers, like Amores Perros, 21 Grams and Babel. In recent years he's gotten off of the interwoven-stories kick and is instead focusing a bit more on individual characters. That worked out incredibly well for him on his last film, Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), a...

Tue, 12/29/2015 - 05:13

Of all the classic characters who were anticipated to appear in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Anakin Skywalker probably ranked near the bottom.
