San Pedro, Calif. — Director Bryan Singer reminisced about “The Usual Suspects” Friday night as a 20th anniversary screening of his Oscar-winning sophomore effort kicked off the 4th annual San Pedro International Film Festival. The film has a unique connection to the city as many iconic scenes were shot in and around the area, with iconic scenes taking place at the Korean Liberty Bell and the Port of Los Angeles.
“I only knew it would be better than [my first film] ‘Public Access,’ because I had better actors,” Singer said during a post-screening Q&A. “You have no idea if a movie is going to have any longevity or a cult classic nature. None of that ever occurred to me.”
Indeed, many of the film’s memorable moments happened less by design than spontaneity and serendipity. He recalled, for instance, the oft-mentioned story of actor Benicio del Toro showing up on set with a »

Nicole Kidman recalls the personal turmoil she underwent following her split from first husband Tom Cruise and how she felt the "loneliest" she had ever felt after winning an Oscar. At the Women In the World Summit in London on Thursday, the 48-year-old Oscar-winning actress talked about her life after their breakup, her husband Keith Urban, and being a mother of four children from both relationships. Kidman was asked if she thinks the "difficult time" in the years following her split from Cruise unleashed a lot of creativity in her, given that Moulin Rouge! and The Hours, which earned the actress her first and only Oscar, were released »

Nicole Kidman is getting extremely candid about some tough subjects -- namely, her very public split from Tom Cruise and her children with her ex and current husband Keith Urban. The actress was a very special guest during the Women In the World Summit in London on Thursday, where she spoke openly about her struggles following her divorce, her career and having children through almost every avenue available. Kidman was asked if the "difficult time" of her split from Tom unleashed creativity in her, as the separation was followed by roles in films like "The Hours" and "Moulin Rouge." "I was running from my life at that time. I wasn’t able to handle the reality of my life and as an actor, you have this wonderful thing where you can get lost in somebody else’s life and become somebody else for a period of time," she revealed. It's an interesting question, »

Life was a whole lot different back then! Katie Holmes shared a super-cute throwback photo on Thursday, Oct. 8 — showing herself posing for a very smiley photograph with two of her older sisters. The Dawson's Creek alum, 36, looks fresh-faced and very youthful in the photograph which was taken in 1995, more than a decade before she married Tom Cruise and became mom to her daughter Suri, now 9. Holmes, who was around 17 years old in the photo, captioned the sweet snap, "#Tbt my sisters and [...] »
Katie Holmes knows how to travel in style. The "Dawson's Creek" alum took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a fun photo of her getting on the train at New York City's Penn Station ... in a giant ball gown! "Heels and a train...nothing better #newyork #pennstation," the mother-of-one posted with the pretty pic. In the snap, Katie looks ready for for a night on the town wearing a gorgeous strapless red gown, matching red pumps and rocking a wispy updo. The 36-year-old currently resides in NYC with daughter Suri Cruise, so it's no surprise that the actress knows a thing or two about navigating the busy city ... even when she's donning formal wear. While Katie likes to keep her personal life private, she did share a sweet snapshot of her rarely-seen daughter with ex-husband Tom Cruise just last month. "My artist creating with me," the proud mama captioned the adorable photo, »

Unless you're Meryl Streep or Jennifer Lawrence, there aren't a lot of great roles for women in Hollywood. This isn't brand new information, and lately a number of actresses have spoken out about the problem.
As if that wasn't enough, many of cinema's most iconic heroines - the roles that we hold up as evidence to the contrary - were actually written with men in mind, before an enterprising actress or director stepped in to flip the script. And so, in honour of our favourite leading lady Sigourney Weaver turning 66, here are six times that approach paid off...
Catchily titled The Far-Reaching Philosophy of Edwin A Salt, Kurt Wimmer's initial draft of the spy thriller featured a male lead whom Tom Cruise almost played, until he passed because it felt too close to his Mission: Impossible role. The script was then rewritten after studio exec Amy Pascal »
Tom Cruise is on a mission to move. “Tom hates living in L.A. and is relocating to Florida,” a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. “He thinks all the people in Hollywood are fake.” The Scientologist, 53, who listed his Beverly Hills mansion for $59 million, is also looking forward to being closer to his church’s headquarters in Clearwater, Fla. Fellow believer John Travolta “loves his life there and inspired Tom,” says the source. “He was ready to go.” But where the Mission: Impossible - Rogue [...] »

The Church of Scientology really doesn’t want Alex Gibney to win an Oscar for his documentary Going Clear. Since the film — a scathing critique of the controversial church and its celebrity adherents, including Tom Cruise and John Travolta, based on Lawrence Wright's best-selling book — won three Emmys in September, the filmmaker says he has been the subject of an increasingly hostile harassment campaign that has included a Scientology-backed "documentary" and outreach

When you work on a film for over six years, you get a little attached. So when it was time to do a theatrical release for "Meet the Patels," we created a grassroots campaign from the very beginning, making sure that the tone and message of the film were reflected in the entire campaign. In other words, the independent filmmaking continued. Now don't judge, but here are our top seven guerilla tactics. 1. Put your parents to work. As independent filmmakers, you will never have the huge advertising budget of "Mission Impossible" (as much as Ravi thinks he's Tom Cruise…he's not), but what you do have is people who care about you and your film. We shamelessly put our parents to work. Dad has been running this grassroots campaign from his living room from five in the morning until he goes to sleep at night. (Go to our "Meet the Patels »

Plans remain active for a film based on the hugely successful Gran Turismo series of videogames. This is a project that's been active for a few years now, with little sign of firm progress. But presumably with one eye on the megabucks that the Fast & Furious movies have been generating, Sony is pushing this one forward.
Furthermore, Joseph Kosinski, director of Oblivion and Tron: Legacy, is helming this one. When Kosinski joined the film, the story was set to centre on a videogamer who became a racing car driver. There may well have been a change of direction there, »
On the surface, things played out as expected at the weekend box office.
As analysts predicted, "The Martian" won the top spot with an estimated $55 million, coming within spitting distance of the October record set two years ago this weekend by the similar "Gravity."
Art-house crime drama hit "Sicario" expanded wide and grossed $12.1 million, as expected, and finished in third place. And "The Walk," playing only on a few hundred large-format screens before it expands wide next week, earned $1.6 million, debuting at No 11.
Behind the scenes, however, this week's results reflect the ongoing fight for your premium-ticket dollar -- the surcharge you pay for 3D, IMAX, and other large-format screenings. With the moviegoing audience dwindling, the effort to wring more cash from every ticket buyer is the theater owners' last hope for increasing revenue -- and their last major battleground.
These days, most U.S. moviegoers are used to coughing »

Regardless of what you think of Tom Cruise, as a performer, the guy is willing to go to great lengths and put it all on the line in order to entertain us. He is well known for doing his own stunts, going far beyond what most superstars are willing or able to do, something that is on full display in the Mission: Impossible movies. In the latest installment, this summer.s Rogue Nation, he took even his own proclivities to the edge, performing a scene where he had to hold his breath for up to six minutes. And if you.ve ever wanted to see Tom Cruise with his face submerged in water for a ridiculous length of time, you need to watch this video. If you.ve seen Rogue Nation, then you know the scene in question; it.s the one where Cruise.s super spy Ethan Hunt has »
