Allen Hughes‘ first solo effort as a director stars Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Wahlberg plays an ex-cop and Russell Crowe is the mayor who double-crosses him. Zeta-Jones plays the mayor’s wife. Financed by Emmett/Furla Films, Broken City opens via Fox on January 18th. (

Brian Tucker wrote the script for the whole thing, and as we previously reported, the movie centers on Wahlberg’s character, an ex-cop Billy Taggart who is hired by Mayor Nicholas Hostetler to follow his wife.
Crowe plays the mayor of New York City, while Catherine Zeta-Jones stars as his wife. The rest of the story goes like this: After the detective confirms the mayor’s fears that his wife is cheating on him, the wife’s paramour turns up dead and a larger scandal begins to surface. (FilmoFilia)

The cast of Tom Hooper’s “Les Miserables” doesn’t need much encouragement to sing for their supper. In New York this week they did it at lunch; the video is in our player at the bottom of the home page. But last night (Friday) they declined to do so at a Spago dinner celebrating the film after a screening. Our LEAH SYDNEY (who reviews the film below) reports that Hugh Jackman said he was “brokenhearted” about the terrible tragedy in Connecticut and that Anne Hathaway felt the same way. (Showbiz411)

With its Oscar campaign gaining inevitable momentum, this latest adaptation of Victor Hugo's colossal 1862 novel wears its awards ambitions on its sleeve. Short of guns blazing and trumpets blaring, director Tom Hooper - who wooed the Academy last year with his impeccable breakout hit, The King's Speech - knows which buttons to push to get the attention of Oscar voters.
