Hilaria Bladwin has lost almost all 18 pounds she gained while pregnant with her second child in just 10 weeks. In a food and fitness diary she shared with Cosmopolitan.com on Thursday, Sept. 3, Alec Baldwin’s wife revealed she works out daily and eats clean, but she’s not looking to be thin anymore. “I gave birth about 10 weeks ago, but I'm not trying to lose the baby weight,” the mom to daughter Carmen, 2, and newborn son, Rafael, shared. “I’ve come to a point in my [...] »
The Mission: Impossible movies appear to be the action/spy genre’s equivalent of a fine wine: they keep getting better with age.
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, the fifth installment in the Tom Cruise-led franchise based on the 60s television show, has made almost $500 million dollars worldwide thus far, and continues the trend of the M:i films getting better (for the most part) as the series progresses. It features some great action sequences, a substantially formidable villain, and one of the most insane stunts (from Cruise himself, no less) that you have likely ever seen.
That’s no small feat, and with that kind of total take at the box office, the franchise – the first film of which was released all the way back in 1996 – will no doubt continue, with talks of Mission Impossible 6 having already begun. Tom Cruise himself has stated that the sixth film may even begin shooting next year, »

It looks like the producers of next year's Oscars ceremony think the all-important job of host is best suited for a double-act.
"There will be multiple hosts for sure – there will be two," the producer teased, although he has since clarified that no official decision has been made.
The Oscars have a long history of double-acts fronting the live telecast, dating all the way back to Douglas Fairbanks and William C deMille hosting the first-ever ceremony in 1929.
Since 2015 host Neil Patrick Harris has ruled himself out, who do you think »
Early yesterday, one of the formerly unseen awards contenders finally revealed itself with a Trailer. The film in question is Concussion, the Will Smith vehicle that tackles the issue of head trauma within the National Football League. Last year we had a decidedly lighter NFL related movie with Draft Day, but this year it’s Oscar bait and concussions. The flick seems to be hoping to appeal as a drama/dramatic thriller of sorts, but I’ll get into that shortly. Smith will hope to contend for his first Academy Award, but what are the prospects overall for the film? Well, let’s discuss that right now, and of course, you’ll have the Trailer to take a peek at at the end of this piece… The movie is a dramatized look at an issue the NFL is struggling with right now, namely how dangerous concussions are for their players. »

It’s an interesting combination of veterans who represent, respectively, the worlds of live television and the film world.
Hill was a longtime 21st Century Fox/News Corp. executive who stepped down in June to launch a production banner that focused on live TV events. Hill is known for his skill at overseeing live sports production, and was key in building Fox Sports; in recent years he’s overseen “American Idol” for the Fox network.
Hudlin is an Oscar-nominated producer for “Django Unchained,” and last year produced the Governors Awards. He has been the executive producer of the NAACP Image Awards since 2012. Hudlin was the first president of entertainment for Bet Networks from 2005-09.
The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences announced the moves Tuesday, but did not indicate if this is a three-year pact. »

She's fearless! Ireland Baldwin took to Instagram on Monday to share one sexy new photo from her trip to Big Sur, California. In the pic, the 19-year-old daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger looks gorgeous with her brunette tresses styled in a messy updo and her wetsuit pulled down to her hips. The model likewise kept her modesty intact with two bumblebee emojis covering her nipples. "Big Surr [sic] No Reservations," she posted with the topless snapshot. This isn't the first time Baldwin has showed off her assets on the social network. In August, Ireland shared photo of just her backside clad in pink panties. "Cannes," she simply captioned the racy pic. Ireland definitely looks like she's comfortable in her own skin -- what do you think about her topless snapshot?

There’s a moment in Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation — Tom Cruise career-saver, franchise Mvp and the summer's best non-Imperator Furiosa action blockbuster — where the CIA director refers to the film's relentless hero as "the living manifestation of destiny." As a government official talking about an unpredictable agent, the line is patently (if knowingly) ridiculous. As Alec Baldwin talking about Tom Cruise, the dialogue sounds right on the money. That phrase could be dropped into the first sentence of his biography and nobody would think twice.

Concussion tells the story of forensic neuropathologist Dr Bennet Omalu - played by Smith - who uncovered Cte. Cte, standing for chronic traumatic encephalopathy is a degenerative disease affecting the brain, that's caused by the head repeatedly being hit. This discovery put him on a collision course with America's NFL, and that's the heart of the drama that's being explored in Concussion.
The movie co-stars Alec Baldwin, Luke Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Paul Reiser, David Morse, Arliss Howard and Albert Brookes. Peter Landesman has directed this one, and it's scheduled to open on Christmas day in the Us. Don't be surprised if Sony pushed an Oscar campaign for it either. »
No shirt? No problem! That is, if you're Ireland Baldwin, of course! The daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin posted a sexy shot of herself on Instagram earlier, posing completely topless by the beach during a trip to Big Sur. The model captioned the steamy shot, "Big Surr. No reservations." In the artistic photo, the leggy brunette is shown pulling off her long-sleeve wetsuit as she exits the ocean—and it's clearer than day that she's not wearing a bra or bikini top. Baldwin played by the Instagram rules, however, and blocked off her nipples with a bumble bee emoji in order to avoid getting censored or worse yet, flagged by the social media platform. It »
Will Smith is back in a big way! The new trailer for "Concussion" just dropped, and we're getting to see Smith really show off his acting chops in the dramatic clip. Check out the trailer above! In the movie, Smith plays Nigerian-American neuropathologist, Dr. Bennet Omalu, who discovers the link between football-related head trauma and the nerve disease Cte. It definitely looks like the odds are against Smith in the intense trailer, as going to bat against the NFL seems like quite the undertaking. Alec Baldwin, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Luke Wilson and Mike O'Malley also star alongside Will in the sports drama, which was written and directed by Peter Landesman. We can't wait to see 46-year-old in action when "Concussion" drops December 25, 2015! What do you think about the actor's new role? Sound off below and check out the gallery to see more men of the '90s then and now! Read »

In Concussion, Will Smith plays Dr. Bennet Omalu, the doctor who discovered Cte and took on the NFL. While the story is certainly an interesting one, the trailer doesn’t seem to sell it especially well. Filled with rote plot points and overdramatized “key moments,” the trailer almost has to be offering a picture that undervalues the film.
Alec Baldwin offers the best moments in the trailer, and (nothing against Baldwin, who I love) that shouldn’t be a takeaway of a film that needs Smith to carry virtually the entire thing.
The film hits on Christmas, and it’s going to have an uphill road regardless, but it’s going to need to come up with some better marketing if it wants to make a dent in the holiday weekend. It’s a crowded day, this isn’t a genre that tends to draw crowds, Smith can’t pull »

The discovery of a football-related brain trauma and the NFL's attempts to obfuscate the severity of the problem will be the focus of a new drama titled Concussion, which released its first trailer on Monday 10 days before the 2015 season kicks off. In the film, Smith plays Nigerian-born Dr. Bennet Omalu, a professor in the Uc Davis Department of Medical Pathology and Laboratory Medicine who discovered the link between chronic traumatic encephalopathy (Cte) and football players. Concussion, written and directed by investigative journalist-turned-filmmaker Peter Landesman, hits theaters December 25th.

Will Smith has taken some time off from saving the Earth from aliens (and his children) in this December’s Concussion. Sporting a Nigerian accent and scrubs, Smith takes on the meaty role in the true story of Dr. Bennet Omalu.
Omalu, before heading to the States to revolutionize sports medecine, lived as a refugee in Nigeria during the civil war, constantly under fire by the Nigerian Air Force. Surviving these circumstances, Omalu became a physician by the age of twenty-one. In 2002, he discovered Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (Cte), a type of chronic brain damage that factors into the deaths of many professional athletes.
In Concussion, Omalu (Smith) defends his research against his detractors, including the NFL – that would like nothing more than to have Omalu’s findings swept under the carpet.

Will Smith stars in Concussion, a dramatic thriller based on the incredible true David vs. Goliath story of American immigrant Dr. Bennet Omalu, the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of Cte, a football-related brain trauma, in a pro player and fought for the truth to be known. Omalu’s emotional quest puts him at dangerous odds with one of the most powerful institutions in the world.
Look for Concussion on Christmas Day.

James Woods in 'Videodrome.' James Woods in $10 million Twitter lawsuit feud: Crassly vocal right-wing actor goes after two crassly vocal users who attacked him In a letter dated Aug. 21, '15, Twitter attorney Ryan Mrazik ridiculed Surf's Up and Scary Movie 2 actor James Woods, while also highlighting the potentially dangerous precedent of a $10 million lawsuit the 68-year-old entertainer filed against a Twitter user last July. The lawsuit was followed by a subpoena demanding that the social media giant reveal the user's identity and that of another user with whom Woods has been embroiled in the (generally) no-holds-barred Twitterverse. In case you're unfamiliar with the name, these days the two-time Oscar-nominated Woods is best known for a supporting role as a right-wing sociopath in Roland Emmerich's thriller White House Down, starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx (as a liberal-minded U.S. president despised by Woods' character), and for his relentless, »

Will Smith, often seen as the coolest guy on Earth, hasn’t been at the top of his game with his movie choices lately. His most recent film, Focus, didn’t fully wash away the bitter taste that was the heavily panned After Earth. While fans do have Suicide Squad to look forward to, the football drama Concussion had its first trailer drop today, showcasing Smith in the lead role. Written and directed by Peter Landesman (Parkland), the film also stars Alec Baldwin, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Albert Brooks, Luke Wilson, and David Morse. Here’s the synopsis:
Will Smith stars in Concussion, a dramatic thriller based on the incredible true David vs. Goliath story of American immigrant Dr. Bennet Omalu, the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of Cte, a football-related brain trauma, in a pro player and fought for the truth to be known.
