The docs have landed for Sundance 2014. In a world where newspapers are vanishing by the day, the subjects that documentarians take on bear watching. They're the new journalists of our day. Many of this year's subjects cover similar ground as last year's crop of Sundance docs – war, corruption, gender battles, injustice, science, technology, and music. And there are quite a few returning filmmakers such as Andrew Rossi and Nadine Schirman. One doc we've never seen before: a sports jock-umentary about Dock Ellis, who pitched a no-hitter on LSD in the 1970’s. I've seen two of the films in the doc competition ("Return to Homs" and "My Prairie Home in the World"); see trailers below. Here's a preview of the Tk doc tropes on view in Park City this year:1. The prisoner sentenced to life who may or may not be innocent doc. Many will view "Captivated: The Trials of Pamela »

In an era when Richard Branson is ready to shoot people into space, we will say this about the old fashioned railroad: it's still pretty romantic. The countryside whipping by, the sound of the tracks, the recycled air....okay, maybe not everything about the experience will make hearts flutter but it's easy to see why Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth share an instant bond in "The Railway Man." The first clip from the upcoming romantic wartime drama has arrived, and gets audiences ready for the relationship that will anchor the rest of the story. The movie tells the true life tale of Eric Lomax, a British Army officer who endured unspeakable horror at the hands of the Japanese in a labor camp during World War II. Years later, he returns to confront his tormentor and make peace with this past with his wife by his side. Great material, but as our review from Tiff notes, »

A little Scientology matchmaking appears to be taking place as Katie Holmes ex husband Tom Cruise finally has a new girlfriend and instead of trying to convince someone else about his religion he grabbed a covert - he's dating Laura Prepon. The 'Valkyrie' actor - who was previously married to Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes - is said to have asked the 'Orange is the New Black' star out on a date after being ''fascinated'' by his fellow Scientologist for a long time.

''He's always been fascinated by her and, since seeing her in 'Orange Is The New Black', that has turned into an attraction. So he »
When Idris Elba signed on to play Nelson Mandela in the new film Mandela: The Long Walk To Freedom, he not only had to play one of the most recognizable men in history without it seeming like an impression, but he also had to capture the vitality of the man in his youth. Nelson Mandela isn’t just a peace maker or a former rebel. As seen we see in Mandela: The Long Walk To Freedom, he was also a ladies man.
And so, Elba joins a long list of hot actorss like Nicole Kidman, Amanda Seyfried and Ashton Kutcher who have had to either turn down (or turn up) their looks to match the hotness of the historic heroes and legendary celebs they’ve been hired to play.
“People like to see ‘lookie-like’ films,” Elba told us on the Mandela: The Long Walk To Freedom red carpet. »

Keith Urban's luscious locks are long gone! The country singer showed off his new 'do via Twitter on Tuesday. Posing with just half of his face exposed, the "Highway Don't Care" guitarist's signature tresses were noticeably shorter. While it's not the best picture of Nicole Kidman's husband -- the haircut isn't terrible ... right? We'd just like to see Urban either fully commit to short hair or keep it long. It's a little too "hip" of a hairstyle for 46-year-old, if you ask us. At least most of the highlights are gone!But your opinion is the one that counts -- what do you think of Keith's new 'do? Tell toofab in the comment section below, and click "Launch Gallery" above to see even more stars with short and long hair! Read more »

A lot of focus is always put on how short men in Hollywood are. It’s like the ultimate optical illusion, right? They seem so larger-than-life on screen, but in real life they’re itty-bitty Lilliputs with lifts in their shoes (we’re looking at you, Tom Cruise). The awkward part of the equation? There are a ton of super-tall female stars in celebdom! Pairing Amazonian beauties with legs up to their chins with tiny guys only makes the dudes look smaller — and the women look enormous.
Seems unfair. Women should be able to flaunt their height for the sexy-as-hell asset that it is — Napoleon-esque dudes, be damned. From Liv Tyler to Ciara, these 10 lusciously leggy superstars do exactly that. »
