What happens when you're a celeb hairstylist and you lose your luggage? You run to the drugstore! At least, that's what Khloe Kardashian's go-to stylist, Jen Atkin, did when she landed in Chicago with the reality star on Monday, April 27, only to discover that her glam kit was Mia. No worries! Atkin, who also styles Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian, and Jennifer Connelly, simply hustled to Walgreens to see what she could find. "When your hair kit doesn't make your flight? You make lemonade out of sour lemons [...] »
Starting late tomorrow night, U.S. audiences will be able to see “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (read our B- review). But before you sit down for the latest and greatest Marvel Studios has to offer, let’s wind back the clocks to the halcyon days of 2003 when Kevin Feige had a lot less power, the comic giants weren’t in the business of making their own films, and the big green monster finally got his own movie. Directed by Ang Lee and starring Eric Bana alongside Jennifer Connelly, Sam Elliott and Nick Nolte, 2003’s “Hulk” dared to eschew the typical action movie structure for something more poetic, albeit with comic book style transitions. It’s a film that plays less like a faithful rendering of the Hulk onscreen and more like Lee using the characters and trappings to delve into his favorite themes of repression and family dysfunction. Naturally, this »

When her now-grown son (Murphy) discovers where Nana lives, he sets off on a journey with a companion (Mélanie Laurent) to find answers about his past.

It is the latest project from Claudia Llosa, who earned a Best Foreign Film Oscar nomination for her 2009 family drama The Milk of Sorrow.
The film Aloft, from director Claudia Llosa, is a multi-generational drama that features Cillian Murphy and Mélanie Laurent as a duo in search of a woman played by Jennifer Connelly.

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.

Every time I scroll through an actor's IMDb page, I realize there are a lot of movies I haven't seen, but I suppose that is the nature of cinema: we try hard and watch all we can, but at the end of the day there will always be a list of films that remain undiscovered, for better or for worse. All this is to say it's been a hot minute since I've seen Jennifer Connelly in something I really enjoyed, but based on the trailer for Claudia Llosa's Aloft, which debuted only recently, that could change very soon. Aloft follows a mother (Jennifer Connelly) and her son (Cillian Murphy), and delves into a past marred by an accident that tears them apart. She becomes a renowned artist and healer, and he grows into his own, a peculiar falconer who bears the marks of her absence. In the present, a »

Check out the first trailer and poster for the upcoming film Aloft.
As we follow a mother (Jennifer Connelly) and her son (Cillian Murphy), we delve into a past marred by an accident that tears them apart. She will become a renowned artist and healer, and he will grow into his own and a peculiar falconer who bears the marks of a double absence.
In the present, a young journalist (Mélanie Laurent) will bring about an encounter between the two that puts the very meaning of life and art into question, so that we may contemplate the possibility of living life to its fullest, despite the uncertainties littering our paths.

If you've seen films like "Madinusa" and "The Milk Of Sorrow," then you are already familiar with the work of Claudia Llosa. If not, then "Aloft" will be your entry point to her films, and like many others, it's the star power alone that draws you in. Now you can see how it all comes together with this new trailer for the film. Starring Jennifer Connelly, Cillian Murphy, Mélanie Laurent, and William Shimell ("Certified Copy"), the film tells the story of a struggling mother, Nana Kunning (Connelly), and her evolution into a renowned artist and healer. When a young journalist (Laurent) tracks down her son Ivan (Murphy) 20 years after Nana abandoned him, she sets in motion an encounter between the two.

Kristen Stewart, 'Camp X-Ray' star, to join cast of 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' Kristen Stewart to join 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' movie After putting away her Bella Swan wig and red (formerly brown) contact lenses, Kristen Stewart has been making a number of interesting career choices. Here are three examples: Stewart was a U.S. soldier who befriends an inmate (Peyman Moaadi) at the American Gulag, Guantanamo, in Peter Sattler's little-seen (at least in theaters) Camp X-Ray. She was one of Best Actress Oscar winner Julianne Moore's daughters in Wash Westmoreland and the recently deceased Richard Glatzer's Alzheimer's drama Still Alice. She was the personal assistant to troubled, aging actress Juliette Binoche in Olivier Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria, which earned her a history-making Best Supporting Actress César. (Stewart became the first American actress to take home the French Academy Award. »

No one expected much from "Pretty Woman" when they were making it. It was a modestly-budgeted romantic comedy whose stars were Richard Gere (then in the depths of a career slump) and Eric Roberts's kid sister. But when the movie was released, 25 years ago this week (on March 23, 1990), the project was transformed from overlooked stepsister to box office royalty. Mirroring her on-screen Cinderella makeover, Julia Roberts went from little-known ingenue to queen of Hollywood. Plus, the film saved Gere's career and (along with 1989's "When Harry Met Sally") revived the romantic comedy genre in Hollywood.
A quarter-century later, "Pretty Woman" remains a fan favorite, one you've seen a million times on cable. Even so, there's much you may not know about the movie -- the difficulties in casting (Gere and Roberts weren't anyone's first, second, or third choices), crises on the set, what was left out of the final film, »

You may never have legendary eyebrows like Cara Delevigne, Jennifer Connelly or Brooke Shields, but that doesn't mean you have to go out like Oscar the Grouch, either. For the best way to define these face framers, Diy style, follow our step-by-step guide for how to tweeze the perfect brow. Get the right tools: Collect cotton, a calming toner, a spoolie brush and a sharp pair of slant-edge tweezers to do the job. It may be tempting to use whatever pair of tweezers that may be around, but a pair from a cheap manicure kit—and the lack of control they bring—is not your friend. Soften the skin: Tweezing dry skin can exacerbate bleeding and increase the ouch-factor. Instead, swipe on rosewater with a cotton »
