Racers and car enthusiasts rolled over to the charity screening of “Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman” at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.
The film — preceded by a red carpet and followed by an after-party, both held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel — celebrated actor Paul Newman’s passion for racing with archived footage of the late actor and his wife, Joanne Woodward, who remained married until Newman’s death in 2008.
Director and producer Adam Carolla started making the film about two years ago. “It was just a story that I knew people didn’t know, and I wanted people to know it,” he said. Carolla talked to Bob Sharp, whose racing team Newman drove for from the mid ’70s until the ’90s, and together the two took a trip to Newman’s home track, Lime Rock Park in Salisbury, Connecticut, where the concept for the documentary took form. »

In the early 2000s, young heartthrob Josh Hartnett was in a position that many young actors would envy. He had just starred in two big movies (“Pearl Harbor” and “Black Hawk Down”) from two very different auteurs, and for a while it seemed like he could be the next top tier star: a new Tom Cruise or Will Smith. But Hartnett avoided being locked down in any possible blockbuster franchise by turning down one superhero role after another, yet there’s one he regrets saying no to. In a short interview with Playboy (via Variety), Hartnett was asked about the times he was asked to play Superman for Bryan Singer in “Superman Returns,” Spider-Man for Sam Raimi’s film of the same name and Batman for Christopher Nolan. What was his reasoning for turning down such potentially lucrative roles? “The intensity of my sudden fame was overwhelming for me, and in the middle of that, »

What an adorable duo! Katie Holmes took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a rare and candid photo with 8-year-old daughter Suri Cruise. In the pic, the cute twosome is seen playing dress up with some silly accessories. Sporting hot pink boas and orange sunglasses, the mother and daughter pair make funny faces at each other. "#humpDAAAY!!!!!" the "Dawson's Creek" alum captioned the pic. She also shared another shot of their hands covered in fake jewelry, captioning that one "Some serious bling #party city." While Tom Cruise continues to be Mia, Katie has been seen with Suri all over the place lately. The two recently went to Disneyland and also attended the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards together last month -- where they really seemed like they were having a blast!

Secret Disney-loving adults: they’re everywhere. You just don’t know it. How could you grow up emerged in all the Disney films and come out the other side of childhood not still loving it?
Being a Disney fan when you’re an adult is hard. Unless you’re fully brazenly honest about how Disney has shaped your life and the person you are today, there’s probably only so many times you can truly express your love for Walt Disney and his amazing magical animated movies.
You’re full of Disney-related facts: like how Aladdin’s face was modelled on Tom Cruise’s. And how Pumbaa was the first ever Disney character ever to fart. And how Jumpy, Deafy, Dizzy and Wheezy didn’t make the cut for the dwarf’s names in Snow White.
But sometimes your friends are more interested in talking about the amazing time »

Lawyers in motion pictures have been portrayed as one of two extremes, devils or angels, almost since celluloid was invented. The first film dealing specifically with a law firm and attorneys, 1933’s Counsellor at Law, starring John Barrymore, portrayed its J.D.s as upstanding citizens, as did the early Perry Mason films of the same period. This quickly changed, however, with many attorneys portrayed as being capable of the same brand of skullduggery as their shifty clients. With that in mind, we bring you a list of the good, the bad and the ugly of lawyers in movies.

Gregory Peck’s Atticus Finch became the boilerplate for the Noble Movie Lawyer in this iconic, 1962 adaptation of Harper Lee’s award-winning novel. Atticus Finch, a small town attorney in the Depression-era South, must defend a black man (Brock Peters) falsely accused of raping a white woman, »

Rob Blues on remakes, reboots and rehashes…
There were three films I saw in the 1980’s that blew me away and in doing so scorched into my mind the brilliance of original film.
If you are my age then these films will hold a special place in your heart. The first time I fell in love with film for sure. I still genuinely believe that all three films are about as perfect as movies can get. I remember saying to a friend of mine a few years ago that if they ever decided to remake any of my holy trinity then I would stop watching films forevermore. I wouldn’t, I’d had a beer or two and might have gotten a bit carried away, but the sentiment was there. These films are surely untouchable.
And now a Ghostbusters reboot is in the offing. »

Flickering Myth’s Matt Spencer-Skeen interviews stunt performer Lucy Cork about her career and work on the upcoming Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation…
Matt Spencer-Skeen: So Lucy, we’ve known each other from school days and I remember you were always very sporty, how did this develop into you doing stunts?
Lucy Cork: Well I came from a dance and gymnastic background and used to perform on stage in front of live audiences. I loved the buzz of performing and getting instant feedback from the crowd. Through training in gymnastics and then doing martial arts I met some people in the business and they told me I should think about training to be a stuntwoman, so I worked hard at the required disciplines and here I am!
Mss: I looked at your stunt videos on YouTube and the car stuff you do on there is very impressive! How do you »

HBO launched its new standalone streaming platform, HBO Now, earlier this week and is currently offering a 30-day free trial of the service. While there's plenty to be said about HBO Now and what it could mean for the future of traditional pay TV, I'm bringing it up today for one purpose: to let you know that it can be used to watch director Alex Gibney's fantastic documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief for free, right now. Pay $14.99/month to use it faithfully for years to come or burn through the 30-day free trial and promptly kiss it goodbye. It makes no difference to me either way as long as you take advantage of it long enough to watch Going Clear. Premiering at Sundance earlier this year (read Matt's review), Gibney's film is an emotional, disconcerting look at the Church of Scientology from its conception by »

Alex Garland, screenwriter of “28 Days Later,” “Sunshine” and “Never Let Me Go,” makes an impressive directorial debut with cerebral sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina” (in theaters today), but Garland waves off the achievement of leaping to directing as “just next in a continuum.” “The truth was that there was no epiphany moment about directing, because I just don’t dignify the directing role the way we’re supposed to,” the British filmmaker told The Dissolve. “There are a few people — like Woody Allen, he’s an auteur, and I’m cool with that. But for me, directing is about collaboration.” Whether directing is a logical next step or a hard-sought achievement for screenwriters, it’s often done by telling studios, “Hey, here’s my next screenplay. You can have it as long as I get to direct.” Preston Sturges — at the time the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood — is noted for »

It’s a new year of summer fun, and in amongst all the smash-bang-wallops of Avengers, Furious’, Ant-Men, dinosaurs and Tom Cruise, there is as always a new Woody Allen film to look forward to. This time the veteran director brings us Irrational Man, for which the first official look has been provided by USA Today in their summer movie preview….
Not much is known about the project, as is the norm for many Allen films, but we do know that Emma Stone (reuniting with Allen after last year’s Magic in the Moonlight) and Joaquin Phoenix (Inherent Vice) are the stars this time, alongside Parker Posey (Best in Show) and Jamie Blackley (If I Stay), and the story is rumoured to focus on the relationship between a university professor and his student.
Irrational Man opens on July 24th in the Us, with a UK release still to be confirmed. »

Executive producer Brian Grazer revealed the show will return for 17 more new episodes and, well, that was about it. We take our best guess about what to expect
Arrested Development remains one of the few shows where even the slightest rustle of a rumour can provoke a fan frenzy. It’s no surprise then that the revelation from executive producer Brian Grazer, in an interview with Grantland’s Bill Simmons, that the show is to return for a 17-episode season at some point in the near future was greeted with whoops of joy and chicken dance gifs on social media.
Never mind that Grazer’s announcement was about as vague as they come. “We’re going to do another 17 episodes. So stay tuned for Arrested Development,” was all he had to say on the matter, before the conversation moved on to how great Tom Cruise and Jennifer Lawrence are. Conspicuously »

Now nearing its fifth installment, Mission: Impossible needs no introduction. But if there was ever an actor to steal the spotlight with ever-more-daring stunts, it’s the series’ leading star and secret agent, Tom Cruise. When the maiden trailer for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation hit the interwebs late last month, one of the main takeaways was the star’s airborne stunt, which sees him hanging off the back of a military cargo plane at 3,000 feet. No biggie, right?
In fact, according to director Christopher McQuarrie – who joins Cruise for the pair’s second collaboration following actioner Jack Reacher – the actor jumped at the chance to top his Burj Khalifa stunt from Ghost Protocol. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, here’s what the filmmaker had to share.
“They brought me this plane, and I was looking at the model,” says McQuarrie. “And I said to Tom, ‘What if you were on the outside of this plane? »
