In the middle of summer, when moviegoing options are slim, it’s hard to visualize the sheer scope of films that will screen this fall at the Toronto International Film Festival. No single film commands all the buzz, nor can one lineup, and so the first big announcement — featuring the Galas and Special Presentations — can only begin to provide some insight into the titles worthy of anticipation.
Still, there’s a lot to dig through: Oscar hopefuls looking to gain momentum (“The Birth of a Nation,” “Loving” and more detailed here); big-budget studio efforts hoping to earn some upscale cred (Peter Berg’s “Deepwater Horizon,” Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi “Arrival”); veteran filmmakers still pursuing the kind of topics that put them on the map (Oliver Stone’s “Snowden,” Mira Nair’s “Queen of Katwe”).
Beyond these obvious standouts, however, several titles from these programs hold a lot of potential for »

Image Source: Getty / Frazer Harrison I think we can all agree that this hasn't been the easiest couple of months for Taylor Swift. From her nasty breakup with Calvin Harris, plus speculation that her new relationship with Tom Hiddleston is all for show, it seems like every week brings more drama for the "Bad Blood" singer. Most recently, Kim Kardashian leaked video footage that ultimately caught Taylor in a lie (the lie being that she did in fact receive a phone call from Kanye West about the lyric in his song "Famous"). I don't think that Kanye recording Taylor's phone call without her knowledge was the smartest decision (mostly because it's, um, kind of illegal), but when Taylor released a statement via Instagram in which she described being "falsely painted as a liar" as "character assassination," my eyes rolled. Hard. Let me start by saying that as an artist, Taylor Swift »

We've gotten many peeks into Reese Witherspoon's personal life lately, especially where her family is concerned; the actress has taken to social media to share sweet photos of her home and family, including snaps of her three kids, sons Deacon and Tennessee and daughter Ava. Ava, the 16-year-old progeny of Reese and her ex-husband, Ryan Phillippe, has clearly inherited both of her parents' good looks and is paving her own way when it comes to her offbeat style and artsy social media presence - what teenager hasn't experimented with dyeing their hair pink, getting a nose ring, or rocking Doc Martens? Reese recently opened up about her look-alike daughter's trendsetting ways, saying, "She's so much cooler than I am!" and admitting that they "confer about new styles" and that Ava tells her "whether or not I can wear things." We're highlighting Reese and Ava's special bond with a roundup of their cutest pics, »

Reese Witherspoon strapped on her hiking boots this week as she enjoyed a special trip with her 12-year-old son, Deacon Phillippe, in British Columbia. Over the past few days, the mother of three has been perfectly documenting her adventures with a series of snaps on social media.

In what can only be described as a surprising turn of events, Lionsgate has opted to skip a theatrical release of its final Divergent film, and instead release it as a TV-movie — before launching a small-screen spinoff series.
As first reported by our sister site Variety, the decision comes after disappointing box office results/critical reaction for the third installment of the franchise, Allegiant, which opened to a lackluster $29 million in March — a 44 percent drop from 2015 release Insurgent.

The “Grey’s Anatomy” alum has booked a recurring role on the second season of “The Catch,” Variety has learned.
ABC is not releasing any details on Knight’s character or storyline, but the role was created specifically for him. The network has not revealed the number of episodes in which he will appear.
“This has been a thrilling secret to keep,” Shonda Rhimes exclaimed in a statement. “One of my favorite family members is home!”
“The Catch” showrunner Allan Heinberg — also a graduate of “Grey’s Anatomy” — added, “Shonda, Betsy [Beers] and I are beyond excited to have T.R. back in the Shondaland family — and on ‘The Catch’ in a role that was created and written especially for him.”
One of the original cast members of “Grey’s Anatomy,” Knight starred as George O’Malley on the long-running medical drama from the beginning of the show in 2005 through the »

Reese Witherspoon's briefs are still ready for presentation ... as is her sick bikini bod.

Fifteen years ago, Legally Blonde hit screens - and the legal profession has never been the same. Suddenly, law school was no longer just for "ugly, boring and serious" people (Elle Woods' words, not ours). Bright pink dresses were deemed acceptable courtroom attire. Identifying shoe designers and hair care procedures became integral in cracking a case. Okay, so not all of Legally Blonde applies to actual life as a lawyer, but regardless, it's had a big impact. Elle Woods has inspired a lot of people - men and women - to go to law school, including Shalyn Smith, 24, of Columbus, »

Before the all-star group was strapping on proton packs and zapping ghosts — even before they appeared on “SNL” or “Gilmore Girls” — they made appearances in everything from strange short films to gay sketch shows. We’re taking it way back with a look at the early acting careers of the “Ghostbusters” gang.
In her first ever listed acting credit, McCarthy stars in a short film about a woman who has a very close relationship with God- as in, they talk on the phone for hours and share everything from juicy gossip to TV reruns. When that relationship turns sour, »

In case you've forgotten one of Elle Woods' key lessons, allow her to jog your memory 15 years later. On the anniversary of the beloved 2001 romantic comedy, Reese Witherspoon has casually reprised her role to demonstrate the Bend and Snap—"what, like it's hard?" "Happiest #LegallyBlonde15!" she captioned the short clip of her popping up and down in a pink spring dress Elle would definitely approve of. In fact, as she told the Instagram blog, the Bend and Snap began as a full-fledged musical number in the film, choreographed by Toni Basil. While the scene was ultimately shortened, the move has trailed Witherspoon ever since. "That is still the most »

15 years ago today, Elle Woods taught us to bend and snap. Legally Blonde hit theaters on July 13, 2001, giving Reese Witherspoon her breakout role and giving us a movie that put a pink-loving sorority girl in the place where she’s the outcast: law school. Until she proves all her doubters wrong, that is, in the midst of a murder trial, no less. The comedy’s success led to a 2003 sequel and a stage musical that premiered on Broadway in 2007. Other notable July 13 happenings in pop culture history: • 1923: The Hollywood sign, which then read “Hollywoodland,” was officially dedicated. • 1939: Frank Sinatra made his recording debut in a New York studio, singing “From The Bottom Of My Heart” and “Melancholy Mood” with the Harry James Band. • 1964: The Supremes recorded “Come See About Me” in “Hitsville U.S.A.,” Motown’s first headquarters. • 1984: The Muppets Take Manhattan and The Last Starfighter opened in theaters. »

Chris Meledandri doesn’t exactly exude power.
Many studio chiefs thrive on the grip and grin of Hollywood events, hogging the attention and drinking in the approbation. When the Illumination Entertainment chief, however, took the stage at the Lincoln Center premiere of “The Secret Life of Pets” last month to introduce the film, he seemed almost apologetic about taking the spotlight. Sporting jeans and a blue blazer, the low-key, even keeled Meledandri looked more like an estate planner settling in for casual Friday than a mogul at an A-list gathering. In look and demeanor, he is far removed from Pixar chief John Lasseter’s Hawaiian shirt-clad, visionary vibe or DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg’s coiled intensity.
But the animated film’s massive $103.2 million launch this weekend solidifies Meledandri among the most successful people in the animation space and reaffirms his status as one of the movie industry’s biggest hit-makers. »
