A quarter-century ago, Kevin Costner hit a double-play, following up "Bull Durham" with "Field of Dreams" and becoming king of the sports movie. Twenty-five years later, as "Field of Dreams" marks its 25th anniversary (it was released on April 21, 1989), Costner is back with "Draft Day." The movie's about football, not baseball, and Costner's character plays in the executive suite, not on the field, but his mere presence still offers a reminder of great sports movies past.
And after all, isn't nostalgia a key element of sports movies? "Field of Dreams" makes this explicit -- we long for the sports heroes of our childhood, for a supposed long-gone golden age of our preferred sport, as a way of connecting with our past and bridging the generational divide that separates us as adults from our parents. Sports movies offer more than just the drama of winners and losers, or the journey from dream to achievement, »

It’s mid-April – which means it’s time for a slew of articles covering Anaheim’s WonderCon: aka the mini, nicer, friendlier Comic-Con. I’ll be recapping all the ‘bigger’ panels of the day from Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, Universal and Sony Pictures hopefully in a moderately timely manner. First up for the day, Warner Brothers previewed their upcoming slate of features starting with Edge Of Tomorrow, the Tom Cruise/Emily Blunt "Groundhog Day meets [insert-your-alien-invasion-film-of-choice-here] mash-up." Co-star Bill Paxton was on hand to preview some exclusive footage from the upcoming sci-fi flick and offer insight into its making. For a recap of the footage (hint: there were a lot of explosions), hit the jump. The panel opened with a new trailer for the film. It opens with Tom Cruise in a plane, getting ready to be dropped down into the middle of a war – when the plane is hit and explodes. »

With the critically-reviled "Transcendence" crashing at the box office, Johnny Depp has now suffered three big budget flops in a row. It was clearly a misstep for Depp to sign on to the film. But don't worry -- he's not the only major Hollywood star to make an error in choosing projects. We've complied a list of 10 big mistakes from 10 big stars, featuring Julia Roberts, Will Smith, Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, George Clooney, and more. And we didn't even include such chronic mistake-makers as Eddie Murphy, Robert De Niro and Bruce Willis. Check out our list below. Which films would you add? »

The Warner Brothers presentation at WonderCon was packed with fans eager to get sneak peaks of "Edge of Tomorrow," starring Tom Cruise, and "Into the Storm," starring fan-favorite Richard Armitage. Both had gangbusters trailers and exclusive reveals, but the bulk of the crowd was there for one reason, and one reason only: "Godzilla." Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures have been unusually quiet about details on the rebooted take, in spite of it being a huge ...

Katie Holmes ex Tom Cruise may have landed a ready made Scientologist for a girlfriend. While it was rumored Scientology came between Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise marriage, that shouldn't be an issue with Tom's new girlfriend Laura Prepon. The 'Mission Impossible' star and the 'That 70's Show' actress - who both practice Scientology - were rumored to be dating last year and it's now been revealed that they've been seeing each other ever since. The 51-year-old actor and Laura - who is currently playing a drug dealer in 'Orange Is the New Black' - were spotted enjoying a cosy meal at a hotel in Los Angeles last November and despite trying to keep their romance a secret, Laura's co-stars have reportedly found out about the relationship.

We can hardly believe little Suri is already 8 years old and the little one is turning into the spitting image of her mother right before our eyes. Earlier this month, the »

Speaking of 90s boy bands...there will probably be no real N’Sync reunion. Joey Fatone spoke out about the latest very tiny reunion and said there would probably not be another one...at this moment. So probably in a couple of years there might be? Either way we’re lining up at the Ticketmaster box office.

It seems like celebrities have it all: a great job, tons of money, great fashion and passionate romances. Oh, and babies. It doesn’t matter if these Hollywood heavyweights put off starting a family to jumpstart their successful careers. The 10 celebrities on this list all became mothers past the age of 40.
Halle Berry has admitted that she was shocked when she discovered that she was pregnant with her second child at the age of 47, but she was no stranger to having a later-in-life pregnancy. Berry gave birth to her first child, Nahla, when she was 41 years old. Nicole Kidman technically became a mom at the age of 25 when she adopted her first child, Isabella, with former husband Tom Cruise, but she gave birth to daughter Sunday Rose when she was 41.

Jersey Boys sings tough, James Franco’s mature reaction to a bad review, the fight for credit in the marriage equality movement
One major question that kept recurring yesterday in the news about the lawsuit against Bryan Singer was the timing. It turns out the suit was filed now in Hawaii because the state has temporarily suspended the statute of limitations on sex offenses, giving a window.
The Gill Action Group was planning a conference of major donors at the Beverly Hills Hotel May 1-5, but as the iconic hotel is owned by the Sultan of Brunei, who just announced death by stoning for homosexuality, the conference is being moved, and the group is demanding all deposits back. The hotel is of course a favorite celebrity haunt, and I wonder if more things like this will happen.

Written and directed by Lou Howe
The stereotype of mental illness on film is not too dissimilar from the stereotype of mental retardation put forward by the film Tropic Thunder: Successful characters have to be “disturbed,” but they can’t be completely out of control, or else audiences won’t relate to them. Thus, Lou Howe’s debut feature Gabriel, opening this week at the Tribeca Film Festival, draws notice simply because it challenges the rule. The titular character is ill to a degree that the audience cannot completely understand, and he gives an otherwise standard film the depth and edge that it needs.
This will not be clear at the start of the picture. We first meet Gabriel (Rory Culkin) on a lonely search for his long-lost girlfriend, wherein he inadvertently teaches a small child to smoke cigarettes and steals a pair of the girlfriend’s »

Well, it depends who you ask. On Wednesday, Page Six ran an item that insisted that the actors were romantically involved on some level. One day later, E! News reported that wasn't the case.
So who to believe?

Has Tom Cruise found love with Laura Prepon?

However, a source tells E! that there's no truth to the latest romance rumor, insisting that "the story is false." Additionally, E! News has learned that the two have never met. Back in »

1999 was a much simpler time. Brad and Jen. Julia and Ben(jamin Bratt). Teenage films starring actual teenagers topping the box office. Without the addition of reality television and internet celebrities, movie stars were the biggest names covering the pages of tabloids and MTV’s Trl was a must-hit stop for anyone wanting to make an impact on an audience under 30. Before the onslaught of reality star sex tapes and power couple portmanteau, Julia Roberts was just a girl, dating a Law and Order hunk and Nicole Kidman was still married to Tom Cruise. (Pause for laughs.)
Before the year 2000 high school flicks like American Pie proved just as valuable at the box office as boy bands and a new Latin wave were to album sales. Brad Pitt had split from Gwyneth Paltrow, who rebounded with Ben Affleck. And because this was prior to Goop or conscious uncoupling, »

Tom Cruise hanging off a cliff. No safety net, just the shaggy-haired Scientologist at one with the elements. The spectacular opening of Mission: Impossible II (or M:i-2, as the punctuation-happy marketing department would have it) is daftly brilliant for having nothing to do with the rest of the film, and is in some ways symptomatic of the film's car-crash appeal it's a magnum opus of action cliches, excess upon excess upon excess. Why should we start with Cruise hanging on a cliff? Well, why shouldn't we?

Two new images have arrived from the near-future action film Edge Of Tomorrow which starts Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt as soldiers attempting to save Earth from an alien takeover. The two intense new images certainly offer the wartime action this film is set to bring audiences, with Cruise and Blunt heavily armed and ready for battle.
An alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault and no military unit in the world seems capable of overcoming them – that is, until Major William Cage (Cruise) finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop, reliving the day of his death over and over. As Cage uses this opportunity to improve his fighting skills, thanks to Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt), he finds himself getting closer and closer to figuring out just how these aliens can be defeated.

If I had a hedge to bet (thats the saying..right?) then I’d put it on Edge Of Tomorrow. With just over a month until it hits the big screen, expect another trailer fairly shortly, but in the meantime feast your eyes on two new stills that have found their way to our inbox. I’ve seen quite an amount of footage from Edge Of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, and I really do think this will blow people away! Edge Of Tomorrow is released 30th May Ireland & UK / June 6th USA Synopsis: The epic action of 'Edge of Tomorrrow' unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into »
