"I'm ready to get my sexy back," former Major League player Jose Canseco says in the trailer for season 2 of Botched. And if all goes as planned, his "sexy" should be back in no time. Botched is an E! reality show that unites two plastic surgeons who specialize in fixing plastic surgeries gone wrong with victims of those plastic surgeries gone wrong. Last season's patients included a woman whose breast implants were so big they turned into one giant boob, another woman who was on her seventh nose job, and... Janice Dickinson. Judging from the trailer on People's website, this »

It's no secret that the stars of Fury grew to know and love one another by the end of their time filming the war flick. Both Brad Pitt and Shia Labeouf have been especially vocal about the bond that was created on the movie set, showering one another with endless, public accolades during promotions for the film. Angelina Jolie's husband continued to praise his co-stars to E! News at the London premiere of Fury, telling us that it was his "responsibility as the commander" to keep the other actors in check. "Through all of the training we went through, we started to really understand each other's strengths and weaknesses," he shared. "I couldn't bitch and complain, »
Cling. Clang. Crash. Welcome to the category of Best Sound Editing, which awards the creation and integration of artificial sounds into a movie's soundtrack. This distinguishes this category from Best Sound Mixing, which awards the mixing of the film's overall soundtrack. Due to the emphasis on creating artificial sounds, action films and war films tend to do particularly well here. The branch is also not afraid to give a film a standalone nomination (this decade, that has included "All is Lost," "Tron: Legacy," "Drive" and "Unstoppable"). In the not-too-distant past, animated films were also practically annual staples, which is unsurprising given the need to manifest everything you hear in such productions. The sound branch has its favorite contenders who regularly return. Names like Richard Hymns and Wylie Stateman immediately jump to mind. This is likely the case to a greater extent in Sound Editing than Sound Mixing. But every year also sees new nominees. »

We're calling it now: "Maleficent" will be the Halloween costume of the year.Disney's new version of the classic "Sleeping Beauty" villain was perfectly embodied by the one and only Angelina Jolie earlier this year -- and we're Living for her makeup in the flick.The bold red lip, those cheekbone prosthetics and labradorite contacts all combine to create a creepy, yet gorgeous, interpretation of the fairy-gone-bad.

Pitt and Affleck go head to head to see who's the biggest star!
This weekend, Brad Pitt's Fury opened big, and took on reigning champ Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck. Between the two, Fury blew Gone Girl out of the top spot with a $23.5 million dollar bow, which was still smaller than Gone Girl's first weekend ($35.5 million) or even it's second ($26.4 million.)
Clearly, the films are well-matched adversaries, but how about Pitt and Affleck as performers? How do they stack up? Well, this week's Celebrity Showdown is here to answer that question once and for all.
They've both got Oscars, they've both got accolades and they've both got embarrassing projects in their distant pasts. So, looking at seven unique criteria that weighs box-office earnings, critic's reviews and award season gold, Celebrity Showdown examines the anatomy of both stars' careers to show who's really the best.

This weekend, Brad Pitt's Fury is not just the box office number one movie making $23.5 million. The film about the World War II tank crew's last offensive against the waning Nazi forces in 1945 was also a teachable moment for Pitt's son Maddox.
In an interview with the Associated Press, the actor talked about his eldest son's reaction to watching the film.
"He's a bit of a World War II buff so it's interesting for him, I think, but it's still dad so it's not that cool."
It was important to Pitt to explain the reality of war to his kid. "The younger generation play a lot of video games and I want them to understand that there is casualty, you don't just reboot. There are real consequences and real stakes so we talked a lot about that."

Thanks to an army of older males, David Ayer's Fury won the North American box office battle with $23.5 million from 3,173 theaters, toppling Gone Girl from the top spot and delivering one of the best openings of all time for a World War II war movie, not accounting for inflation. It's also another win for star Brad Pitt. Fury is a career best for Ayer. As fate would have it, the year's other high-profile WWII drama, the upcoming Unbroken, is directed by Pitt's wife, Angelina Jolie. Sony, Qed International and LStar Capital spent $68 million to

★★★☆☆In the House of Mouse's third attempt at reinventing a classic fairytale as a live action adventure, director Robert Stromberg brings us a new twist on Sleeping Beauty with Maleficent (2014), starring Angelina Jolie as the titular villain turned misunderstood hero. Opening to a CGI-heavy landscape, we meet a diminutive Maleficent (Isobelle Molloy) dwelling in a tree, fixing broken branches and generally being a child of nature as she flies through the air upon her wings. A voiceover tells us that the world this horned heroine inhabits is divided into two. One is a peaceful land of magic, the Moor, where button-nosed trolls waddle through the marshes and all manner of flying creatures pepper the skies.

Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie directs and produces Unbroken, an epic drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp.
Adapted from Laura Hillenbrand’s (“Seabiscuit: An American Legend“) enormously popular book, Unbroken brings to the big screen Zamperini’s unbelievable and inspiring true story about the resilient power of the human spirit.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's work schedules have taken them to different parts of the world lately, but the distance between the couple got a lot shorter this weekend. After making several stops in the Us this week, the actor popped up at the Paris premiere of his movie Fury on Saturday. Meanwhile, Angelina has been busy working on their upcoming movie, By the Sea, which she wrote and is directing. On Friday, the actress donned a leopard-print hat while driving a vintage convertible on the set of her and Brad's movie in Malta. It's been a little over a week since the duo touched down in London with their kids. Brad showed his love for Angelina by wearing a homemade shirt featuring a drawing of his wife's character in Maleficent. Although Brad has been in the spotlight as Fury makes an impressive debut at the box office, Angelina »
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have the kids approval - their kids ''like'' the fact they are married. The couple tied the knot in August on the urging of their children Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight, and six-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox and their famous father says the brood are thrilled the union is now official. Asked how the children are enjoying their parents being married, Brad smiled and told People magazine: ''They like it. They like it.'' To prepare for his new movie 'Fury', Brad and his army tank co-stars, including Shia Labeouf, Michael Pena and Logan Lerman went put through bootcamp by Navy Seals and part of the tough training involved being sleep-deprived. Each of the stars had to stay awake on watch each night and it fell to the youngest member of the crew, 22-year-old Logan, to wake Brad, 50, each night and he »

Sony cleverly played this up in the social campaign by appealing to tank »
