The 2014 reboot of RoboCop, hitting theatres next month, features a sleek new take on the iconic suit from the 1987 original. It's very hot. Like, literally hot. "The first time I put it on... it was a hot day in L.A.," said Joel Kinnaman

    TIFF Cinematheque's retrospective of the French filmmaking iconoclast begins by spotlighting his 1960s "golden age." “Photography is truth,” Michel Subor’s young draft-dodger announces in Jean-Luc Godard’s Le Petit Soldat, “And cinema is truth 24 frames per second.” Though that statement is often misattributed to the French filmmaker himself rather than to his character

    Justin Bieber’s arrest for suspicion of drag racing in a yellow Lamborghini while being “belligerent” to policein Miami seems to be the latest twist in a never-ending downward spiral.
