"This is so ridiculous. I love it," Cruise said ahead of the battle.
The Mission: Impossible actor then launched into a performance of The Weeknd's recent hit 'Can't Feel My Face' to the delight of the crowd.
But the highlight of the evening had to be the »
Tom Cruise scorched The Tonight Show stage Monday night during an epic "Lip Sync Battle" that left host Jimmy Fallon wide-eyed and slack-jawed. The Mission Impossible actor's turn was so good, he at one point relegated Fallon from the role of host to glorified coat rack.
Cruise kicked off the game with a rendition of The Weeknd's summer smash, "I Can't Feel My Face," that was so sultry and smooth its creator offered this praise on Twitter, "I can't believe @TomCruise is singing my song. @jimmyfallon you're the Man for this one… »
In a career spanning more than two decades and spawning over 100 movie soundtracks and anthems, composer Ar Rahman has been hailed as a global music icon.
Dubbed the "Mozart of Madras", Rahman's extensive musical credentials belie his years and his humility. The double Grammy, double Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe winner, who also has four National Awards and more Filmfare Awards than you could count, was named one of the world's most influential people by Time magazine, in recognition of his contribution to music.
Rahman first came to prominence in the 1990s for his rousing soundtracks for Mani Ratnam's Roja, Bombay and Dil Se. He is credited with single-handedly revolutionising Indian cinema, and to date he has composed the soundtracks for over 100 Bollywood films. With record sales of over 200 million albums worldwide, he trounces the collective efforts of Madonna and Britney Spears. He has recorded tracks with Michael Jackson, »
Mick Jagger's good looks have really given off some good "Satisfaction." Here's a 22-year-old version of the fresh-faced Rolling Stones vocalist posing for a portrait back in 1965 (left) and almost 50 years later ... the UK rockstar-- who celebrated his 72th birthday just a few days ago -- at a press night performance of 'Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs' at the Richmond Theatre last November (right). Don't you want to have looks like Jagger? »

Long considered to be one of British auteur Tony Richardson’s greatest miscalculations is his 1970 film Ned Kelly, certainly the most notable but arguably the definitive version as concerns one of Australia’s most infamous outlaws. Arriving on Blu-ray for the first time, the title remains a curious novelty, one of a handful of on-screen appearances featuring The Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger in a high-profile role. As many of these once-reviled titles go, the history behind the making of the film tends to overshadow the compromised product, and Richardson’s failed period piece is no exception.
In the late 1800s Outback, horse thief and aspiring bank robber Ned Kelly (Jagger) is released after serving a three year prison sentence. Harassed by the law and his angry neighbors, the ornery bushranger is forced into action when his mother (Clarissa Kaye) is unjustly accused of murder and sentenced to prison. His resulting »

How does a composer create musical voices for a population of yellow creatures who speak their own language? If you’re Grammy Award-winning musician/composer/songwriter Heitor Pereira, it’s one groovy journey.
Playing in theaters now, Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.
But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he – alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob – ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow.
The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain. »

Following massive success with Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, David O. Russell has again teamed up with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper for Joy, a movie about Joy Mangano, the woman who invented the Miracle Mop. "What a quaint little story," you might think. If this trailer is a good indication, Joy is anything but quaint. It's a rollicking preview filled with The Rolling Stones, guns, and some good old-fashioned sobbing sessions. You'll even see a glimpse of Orange Is the New Black's Dascha Polanco, in addition to Robert De Niro, Virginia Madsen, and Édgar Ramírez. The movie is out Christmas Day, and I highly suggest watching the trailer above. »
Olivia Wilde is red hot! The actress was snapped on the set of Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger’s "Rock ’N’ Roll" pilot for HBO, where she showed off some serious cleavage in a plunging red wrap dress. She paired her show-stopping look with silver stilettos, bold black eye makeup and a killer red lip. The 31-year-old star was joined on set by costar Bobby Cannavale. According to Variety, the series explores the "drug and sex-fueled music business of 1970's New York as punk and disco are on the rise." The show is told through the Pov of a record exec (Cannavale) trying to save his label. Wilde is set to play Cannavale's wife. After she wrapped her day on set, Olivia took to Instagram to share a rare family photo with fiance Jason Sudeikis and their 1-year-old son, Otis, who didn't look too happy to be wearing a bear costume. »

Part I. Denazifying Leni
After World War II, Leni Riefenstahl couldn’t escape the Fuhrer’s shadow. Arrested first by American, then French troops, her property and money seized, she endured interrogations about her ties to the regime. Riefenstahl argued she’d been coerced into making propaganda and wasn’t aware of Nazi atrocities. The image stuck: three denazification tribunals acquitted her (one cautiously branding her a “fellow traveler”), and Riefenstahl began the road to rehabilitation.
More diligent investigators challenged her self-portrait. In 1946, American journalist Budd Schulberg interviewed Riefenstahl for the Saturday Evening Post. Riefenstahl claimed she didn’t know about Nazi concentration camps. Later, asked why she made Triumph of the Will, Riefenstahl claimed Joseph Goebbels threatened her with a concentration camp. Disgusted with Riefenstahl’s self-serving contradictions, Schulberg labeled her a “Nazi Pin-Up Girl.”
Then the German tabloid Revue published a damning article in »

When you think Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll frontman Johnny Rock, think Mick Jagger without the mindbending fame. Bono without the gravitas. Steven Tyler without the scarves. David Bowie without the longevity.
In fact, take just about any classic rock band’s lead singer and disregard the wealth and stardom, and you’re left with Johnny (played by Rescue Me‘s Denis Leary), the hard-partying face of the 1990s band The Heathens.
Video Denis Leary Bangs the Drum for Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll
As we learn via the “Where the Hell Are They Now?” documentary that kicks off FX’s new »
Denis Leary (“Rescue Me”) returns to FX July 16 with raunchy comedy “Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll,” in which he plays an egomaniacal fiftysomething has-been musician, vying for the limelight. Leary created the show, exec produces and stars as Johnny Rock. And he wrote the music.
Johnny Rock is a very different character for you. Who did you look to for inspiration?
All of the music is shot live. Why is that?
I think the audience knows. They can tell when you’re lip syncing. I’m not a great singer, but I can scream and I’ve certainly performed the “A–hole” song enough over the years, but I really »

Think back to the science fiction cinema of the 1990s, and some of the decade's biggest box-office hits will immediately spring to mind: The Phantom Menace, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, Men In Black, Armageddon and Terminator 2 were all in the top 20 most lucrative films of the era.
But what about the sci-fi films of the 1990s that failed to make even close to the same cultural and financial impact of those big hitters? These are the films this list is devoted to - the flops, the straight-to-video releases, the low-budget and critically-derided. We've picked 50 live-action films that fit these criteria, and dug them up to see whether they're still worth watching in the 21st century.
So here's a mix of everything from hidden classics to forgettable dreck, »
"Joy" is actually the name of Jennifer Lawrence's character, but it's also how you'll feel watching the epic first trailer for this movie. Let us all bow down, once again, to Katniss/Mystique, who shows so much range just in this trailer alone that they may as well engrave her name on an Academy Award right now. "Joy" is also a good title for something that reunites director David O. Russell with his impressive "Silver Linings Playbook" cast -- JLaw, Bradley Cooper, and Robert De Niro. (What is this, the 107th movie Jen and Bradley have made together? No complaints.)
The trailer, which includes a Christmassy version of The Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want," is above.
The movie's plot suggests there's more complexity of emotion to the story than pure joy. Here's the synopsis 20th Century Fox shared with the trailer:

Chicago – She burned like a firework in the sky, and just as quickly faded away. The unique voice of Amy Winehouse was fresh air into the music vacuum, and yet the delicate state of her destructive addictions succumbed to a sudden notoriety. Director Asif Kapadia and producer James Gay-Rees tell her story in ‘Amy.’
The documentary stands by itself as a trek into darkness, through a 21st Century life captured on video, film and photographs from childhood to superstar fame. Amy Winehouse was a girl from North London with a jazz smooth vocal styling seemingly from the gods. She was twenty years old when her first album, “Frank” (2003), brought her to a wider audience. The follow-up in 2008, “Black to Black,” established Winehouse as a one-of-a-kind singer and personality. The ironic song “Rehab” from that album was a huge hit, but couldn’t save Winehouse from her own tragic sensitivity to love, »

Have you ever imagined what it would sound like if the Rolling Stones covered a Taylor Swift song? Omg, us too! But you don't have to imagine anymore, Swifties, because the internet is our friend. Anthony Vincent, the self-proclaimed "voice of the ten second song," has given us the most epic "Bad Blood" cover ever because he does it in not just one, or even two voices. Rather, he performs the pop hit in the style of 20 famous voices! Vincent shows off his skills in famous guises such as Mick Jagger and the rest of the Stones, TLC, Def Leppard, the cast of Grease, Cyndi Lauper, Janis Joplin, Coolio and more. Seriously, we couldn't stop listening to it »
Writer/director Justin Kurzel and co-writer Shaun Grant broke through in a big way with Australian crime tale Snowtown. And for a new collaboration, they’re digging into more of the country’s criminal history for True History Of The Kelly Gang. Grant is working on an adaptation of Peter Carey’s eponymous novel, which chronicles Ned Kelly’s adventures through the man’s own eyes. Their history was a complicated one – in the eyes of the law, they were bandits and murderers, but to many ordinary Australians, they were heroes, the bushrangers who defied English authority to life their own lives.Kelly’s story has been brought to the screen several times before, including a 1906 version, Tony Richardson’s take in 1970 with Mick Jagger playing the main man and 2003’s Ned Kelly, which saw Heath Ledger taking on the role for director Gregor Jordan. It’s early days for this one, »
The novel is seen through Kelly.s eyes, scribbling his narrative on scraps of paper in semi-literate but descriptive prose as he fled from the police.
To his pursuers, Kelly was a monstrous criminal, a thief and a murderer. To many ordinary Australians, the bushranger was a hero, defying the authority of the English to control their lives.
Joe Penhall was listed as the writer when the project received development funding from Screen Australia.

Sir Mick Jagger insists The Rolling Stones have no intention of retiring and are going to keep ''working''. This week the band announced 'Exhibitionism' this week, an exhibition displaying memorabilia from the legendary group's 53-year career which will include iconic stage outfits, instruments, tour posters, album artwork, photos, letters and even some rare sound archives and recordings. Although the four Rolling Stones members - also including Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts - have decided to create this retrospective attraction, Mick is adamant they will continue to play live and work on new projects going forward. In an interview with The Sun newspaper, the 71-year-old singer said: ''Just because we're doing a retrospective doesn't mean it's all over. We're still working, still doing shows and I think we will continue to do so.'' Guitarist Keith echoes his bandmate's statement and has assured fans The Stones - who are »

Edinburgh: Scottish actor gives talk about 22-year acting career including new role as Jesus in Last Days In The Desert.
Ewan McGregor revealed to an audience at the Edinburgh International Film Festival (Eiff) on Sunday that he would be willing to reprise the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi to tell the story of Stars Wars between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back should Disney ever wish to do so.
The comments came during an on-stage interview in which the Scottish star looked back over the highlights of his career thus far and chose his words carefully on the subject of the forthcoming Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
The actor seemed not to be the most rabid of fanboys and declared: “I’m not a fanatical person.”
Still, he said he was impressed by the trailer - “It looks like [Jj Abrams] he absolutely nailed it” - except for the lightsaber’s updated design.
“I’m excited »
