As the idea of making Mars a habitable planet has become more of a possibility in recent years, it’s no surprise that Hollywood has followed suit with films that are less about invading alien hordes, and more about what life might be like for those first settlers. The Martian gave us Matt Damon learning to live on the red planet, and in its latest trailer, The Space Between Us gives us Asa Butterfield falling in love on the red planet.
The Space Between Us tells the story of Gardner Elliot (Butterfield), a 16 year old boy whose mother was one of the first astronauts to colonize Mars. Despite having known only 14 people in his entire life, Gardner forms a somewhat romantic friendship with Tulsa (Britt Robertson), a girl on Earth whom Gardner communicates with online. Hoping to find his father and meet Tulsa face to face, Gardner makes the journey home. »

It appears Tom Brady has come between Matt Damon and his buddy, Ben Affleck.

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have been best friends for years, but they're both vying for the attention of Tom Brady. In a new video to promote a new Omaze charity campaign, Ben and Matt get into an argument during a video call about whom the New England Patriots player likes more. "For just $10 you and a friend can hang out with me and Tom Brady...and I guess also Matt will be there," Ben says during the call. "And yes also me because I'm also friends with Tom Brady," Matt snaps back. "Lesser friends," Ben notes. The A-list actors then go on to explain that you and a friend would grab some pizza, drink some beers and visit their favorite places in Boston with them »
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck may have a tight bromance, but one thing they can't seem to agree on is who is better friends with Tom Brady. In promotion of a new Omaze campaign, which offers one person and a guest the chance to hang out with the trio, the actors got into a pretty heated argument over Skype. While they waited for the NFL quarterback to join the video call, Ben and Matt didn't hold anything back as they threw jabs at each other. Matt even hit a sore spot by making fun of Ben's recent movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We are definitely entering this contest. »

Image Source: Getty / Target Presse Agentur Gmbh Fans were thrown for a loop when news broke on Sept. 20 that Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after 11 years of being together. Although the By the Sea actress has yet to personally speak out on the matter, her attorney, Robert Offer, said her decision to split was "for the health of the family." Brad released a statement of his own not long after, telling People, "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids." While it's still unclear what led to their shocking breakup, keep reading to get all caught up on everything that has unfolded since then. Angelina files for divorce from Brad.

Tim Burton has had a rough spell at the box office. “Big Eyes” was an Oscar contender that failed to grab any gold, “Frankenweenie” was a bridge too bizarre for family crowds, and “Dark Shadows,” starring Johnny Depp, revived a campy ’70s show that most of America had forgotten. Burton, once a reliable purveyor of popcorn hits, hasn’t scored since 2010’s “Alice in Wonderland.”
But the director of “Batman” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” is on firmer ground with “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” an adaptation of the best-selling novel about a young boy who is taken in by an orphanage populated by children with extraordinary powers. It’s mixture of the magical and the macabre seems a perfect fit for Burton’s quirky sensibility. The film is expected to open in first place, with roughly $26 million when it debuts in 3,520 locations. Fox is distributing the film, »

It’s not particularly notable that Warner Bros. is developing a live-action adaptation of Hirohiko Araki’s popular manga series, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (Jojo No Kimyo Na Boken). Most of the films the studio is putting out in the next half-decade are based on comic books. No, what’s interesting is that they’re actually allowing a real life Asian actor to take the lead role, instead of a regular ol’ white actor like Matt Damon or Jim Sturgess. The protagonist, Josuke Higashikata, will be played by 22-year-old Tokyo-born Kento Yamazaki.
Part of the reason that JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure—about a clan of good guys with superpowers who fight bad guys with superpowers—isn’t being Last Airbender-ed is that Warner Bros. is co-producing the action-fantasy film with Toho, the Japanese studio behind 28 Godzilla movies. Another is that it’s being directed by Takashi Miike, the ...

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.
This Past Weekend:
While the new movies reigned at the box office this past weekend, both Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven (Sony) and the animated Storks (Warner Bros.) didn’t fare nearly as well as our projections, both falling short by about $10 million. The Magnificent Seven, starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt, fared decently with $34.7million, which is about the average for Washington’s films, but the fourth highest opening for a Western after last year’s The Revenant, the animated Rango, and Cowboys and Aliens. Storks’ $21.3 million opening wasn’t great compared to other animated September releases with Sony still holding the September opening record with Hotel Transylvania 2, but it should continue to do well with no other animated movies opening for another month. »

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt proved that cute couples stick together when they were spotted leaving Jennifer Aniston's home in NYC on Monday night. The pair, who welcomed their second child in July, showed sweet Pda as they walked hand in hand out of Jen's apartment building. John dressed casual in a t-shirt, black pants, and a baseball cap, while Emily kept warm with her long navy peacoat and her man's arm around her shoulder. And this isn't their only celebrity meet-up this week. On Sunday night, they were joined by Chelsea Clinton, Marc Mezvinsky, Matt Damon, and Luciana Barroso for a triple date in the city. Here's hoping there will be even more fun run-ins when Emily hits the red carpet with Jen's husband, Justin Theroux, for the upcoming premieres of their film, The Girl on the Train. »

Oh, to be a fly on that wall. Last night in New York City, there were arguably hundreds if not thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) of dates going on across the city. Lovers were gathering at restaurants and in bars to eat, drink and be merry. But at La Esquina in the Nolita neighborhood, there was a very special get-together. This was a date of astronomical proportions; one that had so much star power that we're still unclear as to how the place didn't implode. It was a triple date between Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barroso, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, and Chelsea Clinton and her husband Mark Mezvinsky. We know. The group (obviously) »
Matt Damon reunited with his Adjustment Bureau costar Emily Blunt on Sunday night for a triple date at La Esquina in NYC. Matt and Emily were joined by their other halves, Luciana Damon and John Krasinski, respectively, as well as Chelsea Clinton and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky. The group was spotted leaving the restaurant after their meal and converging on the sidewalk, where they cracked up while chatting before saying goodbye. Emily's night out comes in between lots of press for her new film, The Girl on the Train. The actress stars opposite Justin Theroux in the thriller and will likely be hitting the red carpet for the film's NYC premiere before it hits theaters on Oct. 7. Chelsea is also in for a big week, as her mom, presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, is set to debate Donald Trump on Monday. »

Date night for six. Three celebrity couples headed to the same Mexican restaurant in New York City for dinner Saturday night, sparking rumors of a red carpet-worthy triple date. Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso, Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky, and John Krasinski and Emily Blunt dined at La Esquina in Manhattan's Nolita neighborhood over the weekend, just two days before the first presidential debate of 2016. The couples were spotted chatting outside the restaurant after their meals. Clinton and her husband went for a casual look in jeans, while Blunt wore a black dress with floral print and carried a jacket. »

“Silence,” Martin Scorsese’s passion project about Jesuit priests in feudal Japan, has snagged an awards-season release date, signaling that Paramount Pictures believes it has an Oscar contender on its hands.
The religious epic will debut in limited release on Dec. 23, before expanding in January. There are no wide releases scheduled to debut on that date, but “A Monster Calls,” a fantasy adventure, will bow in limited release on that date. Moreover, it is a crowded time of year as studios are fielding a number of prestige films and commercial projects, all trying to take advantage of the holidays. The animated musical “Sing,” video game adaptation “Assassin’s Creed,” and “Passengers,” a sci-fi romance with Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, hit theaters two days before “Silence” debuts.
