Though he was a bona fide teen heartthrob in his “Twilight” movies, Robert Pattinson has grown into a true Hollywood hunk, as is evident in the new preview teaser from “Life,” his forthcoming project with Dane DeHaan.
The “Remember Me” star plays Dennis Stock, a photographer for Life magazine who befriends up-and-coming actor James Dean and embarks upon a historically-significant road trip.
Along the way, Dennis and James become close friends and the photographs Stock takes of Dean go on to be recognized as some of the most famous images of the late movie star. “Life” is slated to hit theaters on December 4th.
Looking forward to another addition to the family, Candice Accola announced she’s pregnant via Instagram by the weekend.
The “Vampire Diaries” dame posted a photograph with her husband Joe King and her two stepdaughters Ava and Elsie, and she wore a white t-shirt that had the word “Baby” written on it.
Candice added the caption, “Sometimes a Saturday is best spent painting t-shirts and taking an awesome family photo. Happy Monday everybody! #ThatAintNoBurritoinMyBelly Thank you to our friend @softspiritstrong for coming by and snapping that sweet pic.” that will be Ms. Accola’s first baby!
Taking his next step toward a full career comeback, Justin Bieber just released the new clip for his separate “What Do You Mean.”
The 21-year-old pop music megastar isn’t afraid to show his sexy side in the video, writhing around with model Xenia Deli in a sketchy hotel room as they both remove their clothing.
Adding to the excitement, John Leguizamo and his cronies bust in on the love fest and try to abduct Bieber and his gal, though things take a positive turn by the end of it. Check the clip!
He’s been promoting his new flick nonstop for weeks, but unfortunately Zac Efron’s best efforts losed out to inspire fans to see “We Are Your Friends” that weekend.
According to industry numbers, the $1.8 million opening run is the worst total of any Hollywood studio film that has played in 2,000+ theaters (WAYF actually opened in 2,333 locations). And given that Warner Bros paid $6 million for production and another $2 million for distribution, there’s a good chance “Friends” will end up a tax write-off.
Warner VP of Domestic Distribution Jeff Goldstein told press, “This was a passion project for Zac Efron, and we believe in him. Yes, the conclusion was disappointing, but that was a small film.”
He was the master of making horror films that transcended the genre’s usual audience and sadly Wes Craven died on Sunday (August 30) at age 76.
The “Scream” writer/director, who had two children and two grandchildren, lost his battle with brain cancer and is survived by his wife, former Disney Studios vice president Iya Labunka. They lived together in Martha’s Vineyard until three years ago when work and health forced a move back to Los Angeles.
Craven is best known for writing and directing “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” though he stepped outside the horror heading to direct Meryl Streep in her Oscar-nominated role in “Music of the Heart” in 1999.
Of his career, Wes shared, “I come from a blue-collar family, and I’m just glad for the work. I think it is an extraordinary opportunity and gift to be able to prepare films in general, and to have done it for nearly 40 years now is remarkable. whether I have to do the rest of the films in the [horror] genre, no problem. whether I’m going to be a caged bird, I’ll sing the best song I can. I can see that I give my audience something. I can see it in their eyes, and they say thank you a lot. You realize you are doing something that means something to citizens. So shut up and get back to work.”
As pro football season prepares to kick off (pun intended), Sony Pictures just unveiled the new trailer for “Concussion,” slated to hit theaters on December 25th.
The much-anticipated movie features big names like Will Smith, Alec Baldwin, Stephen Moyer, Luke Wilson, Albert Brooks and Paul Reiser, all under the direction of Peter Landesman, who additionally penned the script.
Per the synopsis, “This is a dramatic thriller based on the incredible true David vs. Goliath story of American immigrant Dr. Bennet Omalu, the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE, a football-related brain trauma, in a pro player and fought for the truth to be known. Omalu’s emotional quest puts him at dangerous odds with one of the most energetic institutions in the world.”
