That Book #Girlboss You Liked Is Going to Become a Netflix Show You Also Probably Like

5 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Befuddled boyfriends around the nation are getting one more question to ask today, as Variety reports that fashion magnate Sophia Amoruso's memoir #Girlboss will be turned into a Netflix comedy series, produced by the dream team of Amoruso, Charlize Theron, and Pitch Perfect's Kay Cannon, who will serve as showrunner. In book form, #Girlboss was often described as a Millennial version of Lean In, which is just going to confuse that adorable lunk you share a bed with even further. Just tell him the woman whose blog you like is teaming up with two women whose movies you like to make a show out of the book you like, no, not that one, that's the book you don't like. »

Babylights: Does This Hair-Coloring Trend Make You Look Younger?

3 February 2016 5:24 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

By now, you've seen ombré hair and heard of balayage. Heck, even the terms sombre and flamboyage probably sound familiar. Ready for another one? Let us introduce you to babylights. A Hollywood hair-coloring craze since last summer, babylights are not infant-size or smaller strands of lightened locks. Celebs like Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Charlize Theron love the look because it replicates the subtle dimension and contrast seen in children's hair (read: naturally sun-kissed hair). A hair color that takes a few years off? Yes, please! Hairstylists, like colorist to the stars Tracey Cunningham, even sometimes ask clients to bring in their childhood photos for inspiration. But how does the process »

George Miller Says He Originally Wanted The Music In 'Mad Max: Fury Road' To Only Come From The Doof Warrior

3 February 2016 10:40 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Try as they might, studios can't consistently tell what audiences will latch onto. For example, the Captain Phasma character in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" was intended to be a Boba Fett-esque enigma that would appeal to 'Star Wars' superfans, but it was the young, human leads plus Bb-8 that moviegoers went for. When it comes to "Mad Max: Fury Road," it wasn't the titular character that resonated most deeply with the audience —rather, it was Charlize Theron's Furiosa. And the guitar-slinging The Doof Warrior was a huge hit with audiences: the fire throwing rocker adds a surreal layer to the non-stop action film that's easily one of the most memorable elements. According to director George Miller, itseems that the character had an even more important position in the picture initially.

Fast and Furious Finale Trilogy Release Dates Revealed

3 February 2016 8:50 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Univseral has set release dates for another two Fast & Furious movies (bringing the franchise up to 10 total films), meaning The Rock and Vin Diesel will be speeding and drinking Caronas for atleast one more trilogy.  Come inside to see when they'll hit.

Last years Fast & Furious 7 was praised by both fans and critics alike. Not to mention a very impressive 1.516 billion at the worldwide box office. We had to know that when Vin Diesel said a finally trilogy was coming, he wasn't just revving his engine. In typical Diesel fashion, the news comes via the star's Instragram account: 

The last installment was directed by James Wan and was plagued with set problems. Most notably the untimely passing of the films second star Paul Walker. With a incredibly heartfelt send off for the late actors character, the future of the franchise was a bit shady, despite Diesels claims of one last trilogy. »

Academy Announces Diverse First Slate of Oscars Presenters, Performers

28 January 2016 2:15 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It looks like the Academy is trying to make amends for the #OscarsSoWhite backlash, with its announcement of a diverse first slate of presenters and performers for next month's Oscars ceremony.

The list was revealed in alphabetical order and without designating exactly who's performing and who's presenting, though it appears that the performers will most likely be nominees Lady Gaga (up for Best Original Song for "Til It Happens to You" from "The Hunting Ground"), The Weeknd ("Fifty Shades of Grey" tune "Earned It"), and Sam Smith ("Spectre" theme "The Writing's On the Wall").

Presenters will include past Oscar winners Benicio Del Toro, Whoopi Goldberg, and Charlize Theron, as well as Tina Fey, Ryan Gosling (a 2007 nominee for "Half Nelson"), Kevin Hart, Jacob Tremblay, and Pharrell Williams (a nominee and performer in 2014 for "Despicable Me 2"'s ubiquitous "Happy"). Many more names are expected where those came from.

Film Review: Dark Places

28 January 2016 1:51 PM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★☆☆☆☆After the dark satire of David Fincher's excellent Gone Girl, the possibility of fast-tracking another of Gillian Flynn's intricately plotted thrillers from page to screen must have seemed like a fantastic idea. Dark Places revolves around another complicated woman, the kind of role that Charlize Theron would be perfect for if she added a dash of emotional trauma to the arrested-development cocktail she so astutely served up in Jason Reitman's Young Adult. Add a wealth of acting talent to the mix and this should be a sure fire hit. To call the final product a botch job would be a considerable kindness; it's just plain awful.
