Everything You Want to Know About Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt's Romance

21 August 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Could there be a movie more poised to sweep us off our feet than this December's Passengers? We'd be excited about this movie on star power alone - it's Jennifer Lawrence paired with Chris Pratt - but there's so much more that's making this one of the most anticipated releases of the year. It's a futuristic, space-set drama that pairs the charismatic duo as humans stranded on a spacecraft who eventually fall in love. Entertainment Weekly gave us the first pictures of the movie this week, so now all we want are more details. Until then, here's what we know so far. The Plot Lawrence plays Aurora and Pratt plays Jim, two passengers who have been sleeping in suspended animation on a spacecraft bound for a colony 120 years away. They wake up 90 years early, and as they navigate their lives on the ship, they start to fall in love. When »

Thank you for being here today and for 15 years, ‘Princess Diaries’

3 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For over six decades, Disney has been igniting in little girls the dream of being a princess. Then, in 2001, with the help of Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway, the House of Mouse showed us that wearing the tiara is not all it’s cracked up to be. The Princess Diaries opened in theaters 15 years ago today. Hathaway’s Mia Thermopiles learns just what kind of pressure and responsibility is involved with being princess when she learns she’s the heir to the crown of Genovia. “I don’t want to run my own country. I just want to pass 10th grade,” she moans. It was the film debut of Anne Hathaway, who has since become Hollywood royalty herself, earning an Oscar for Les Misérables and nabbing coveted roles like Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. The Princess Diaries gave us Anne Hathaway, and it also gave us »

Watch Wild Trailer for Warren Beatty's First Movie in 18 Years

14 July 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Warren Beatty's long-in-the-works movie about Howard Hughes, Rules Don't Apply, has been given its first star-studded trailer.

The upbeat clip blends historical fiction and rom-com (à la Woody Allen's recent films) and finds Beatty playing the obsessive-compulsive mogul as an eccentric billionaire goofball — a far cry from Leonardo DiCaprio's portrayal of Hughes in Martin Scorsese's 2004 biopic, The Aviator.

While Beatty scores several laugh lines in the trailer ("Billionaire, goddammit, not millionaire," he grumbles while watching footage of himself, "and what the hell happened to the close-up of me in the cockpit? »

Watch: First Trailer for 'Rules Don't Apply' Directed by Warren Beatty

14 July 2016 9:16 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"In this town, aren't those the rules?" Fox has unveiled the first official trailer for the film Rules Don't Apply, the latest feature directed by Warren Beatty since Bulworth in 1998. Beatty also stars in this as Howard Hughes, who contracts a young actress - played by Lily Collins - to work for him in Los Angeles. When she arrives, she meets her personal driver played by Alden Ehrenreich (who will next be playing a young Han Solo in the spin-off) and falls for him, but can't break Hughes' rule of having a relationship with an employee. The full cast includes Haley Bennett, Alec Baldwin, Ed Harris, Matthew Broderick, Martin Sheen, Annette Bening, Oliver Platt and Steve Coogan. This looks quite fun and especially charming and amusing. It definitely has an old Hollywood feel to it, but not as much as Hail, Caesar. Enjoy. Here's the first official trailer for Warren Beatty's Rules Don't Apply, »

Warren Beatty’s new romantic comedy “Rules Don’t Apply” follows an aspiring actress, a lovable driver, and the eccentric Hollywood legend Howard Hughes (played by Beatty himself) as they struggle with each other’s own idiosyncrasies.
