It's a good month to be a Jenny Lewis fan. The actress turned singer has a new album out next week, Voyager, and the first video featured none other than Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway and Brie Larson (watch it here). And already on VOD, and opening in theatres this weekend, is the indie "Very Good Girls," starring Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning, and featuring an original score by Lewis. In addition, the musician taught Olsen how to play "Go Ahead" by her former band Rilo Kiley for the film, and this new clip shows how it turned out. "[Elizabeth Olsen] plays a young songwriter, so I chose a very old Rilo Kiley song for her to sing, because it felt conceivable that a young artist like her would write it," Lewis told Elle. "My friend Todd gave her guitar lessons, and she picked it up so fast! She’s a better finger-picker than I am now. »

The first few pages of Frank Miller's script for the shelved Batman: Year One have a disturbed Bruce Wayne waking up from chronic nightmares, some nameless prostitutes being slapped around by their pimp, and Jim Gordon putting a gun in his mouth.
You can see why Warner Bros didn't ultimately go for the project, which was to be helmed by Darren Aronofsky and would have rewritten the Bat mythology even more radically than Miller already had in his comic book arc of the same name.
"Our take was to infuse the Batman franchise with a dose of reality," Aronofsky has said, citing The French Connection and Taxi Driver among his influences. "We tried to ask that eternal question, 'What does it take for a real man to put on tights and fight crime?'" It's an approach not far from the one ultimately taken by Christopher Nolan in Batman Begins, »

We should have seen it coming. The questioning of Anne Hathaway’s casting as Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises may not have reached the heights of Batfleck, but there were certainly people out there who questioned whether Princess Mia really was the perfect person to play Batman’s femme fatale thief. But, just as with 10 Things I Hate About You’s Heath Ledger and his appointment as Gotham’s Clown Prince of Crime, we needn’t have worried. Director Christopher Nolan knew exactly what he was doing.
Hathaway’s Selina Kyle proved to be one the best things about Nolan’s trilogy ender, at all times both smart and seductive, desirable and deadly. Some may have baulked at her role in (spoiler, if you haven’t seen this two year old movie) Bane’s death and that she (second spoiler) ultimately ran off to live the quiet life with Bruce Wayne, »

Last October, Simpsons showrunner Al Jean announced that his long-running animated staple would be killing off a major character – one whose actor received an Emmy for their work on the series. Ever since that grim tease, fans have been theorizing about who the doomed Springfield resident could be: Princess Penelope (Anne Hathaway)? Perhaps demented favorite Sideshow Bob (Kelsey Grammer)? But, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Jean offered a major hint during a Sunday panel at the Television Critics Association summer press tour: "(The episode) is called 'A Clown in the Dumps', »
Tyler Perry has been sued by a Georgia-based entertainment company for allegedly working unfairly with government officials while trying to transform a former military base into a movie studio. See video: Anne Hathaway, Tyler Perry, Shonda Rhimes Among Stars in Government's ‘Let Girls Learn’ PSA The entertainment mogul has been accused of attempting to “thwart the business opportunity” of Ubiquitous Entertainment Studios in a federal lawsuit, which also names the U.S. Department of Defense as a defendant, filed earlier this week. One of the causes of actions listed against those defendants is “intentional or negligent misrepresentation and fraud.” The complaint »

Last month, with a new movie from the diminutive Kevin Hart in theaters, we cooked up a graphic comparing the heights of Hollywood’s leading men … and now, it’s the women’s turn. We’ve got two comedies in theaters this month starring comediennes near the short and tall ends of our spectrum — that’d be the teeny Melissa McCarthy in Tammy and the towering Cameron Diaz in Sex Tape — so we plopped them on our chart alongside A-list ladies representing each height, as determined by a wealth of online research and the invaluable obsessives at celebheights.com. What did we learn? Well, for one thing, the ideal height for a female superstar would appear to be five-foot-seven, since there’s an explosion of bankable ladies clustered at that mark, including Angelina Jolie (pictured on the chart), Jennifer Lawrence, Sandra Bullock, and Anne Hathaway. But it’s also kind »

abstew here. This year marks the 25th anniversary of one of the my favorite movies growing up, Troop Beverly Hills. (I mistakenly thought the woman with curly red hair on the VHS cover was my beloved Bette Midler, but when I realized it wasn't, I loved the movie too much to care and made my parents rent it at least once a month.) But all those times I watched those Wilderness Girls singing about the virtues of Cookie Time, I never thought that the actress playing Shelley Long's daughter, Hannah Nefler, would grow up to be my absolute favorite singer/songwriter Jenny Lewis. She writes the songs that make me remember that I have feelings. If you opened my chest it would be in the shape of Jenny Lewis.

Jenny Lewis got a little help from her friends promoting her new album The Voyager, which releases on July 29. Kristen Stewart, Brie Larson and Anne Hathaway joined the singer-songwriter in the music video for “Just One of the Guys.” We’re sorely disappointed that Lewis didn’t take this opportunity to pay homage to the endlessly entertaining 1985 Lisa Gottlieb comedy, also called Just One of the Guys. However, we’re treated to Stewart and company in Adidas-clad B-Boy drag — and the Twilight actress even smiles a little bit. The video is all fun and games, but the song itself has a somber tone to it. Lewis has contributed music to indie films Very Good Girls and Song One (which starred Hathaway), so it’s nice to see her continue a...

Today, Jenny Lewis' premiered the music video for her Beck-produced song "Just One of the Guys." It is silly to perfection. And it has more than just Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway and Brie Larson in drag to unpackage. I think of Jenny Lewis as an artist whose spent a career surrounded by dudes. She started up with in Rilo Kiley at the age 22 with all-guys, toured with the Postal Service, written and recorded music with her boyfriend Johnathan Rice as Jenny & Johnny, works in an indie rock industry that is male-dominated. In her earliest career, she was a child actress, and now she writes scores and soundtracks for film. (Though, don't discount: she also recorded and toured with ladies The Watson Twins, who helped launch her as a solo act, a wonderful ensemble.) In a lot of industries, being "just one of the guys" holds serious social capitol as a woman. »
Imagine Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart and Brie Larson as guys - in '70s-inspired Adidas tracksuits, flat-bill ball caps and gristly porn-staches, as they breakdance in all-white suits. A modern nod to Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love" video, perhaps? Not quite, but why the disguises? It's for Jenny Lewis's new video for her song "Just One of the Guys." As for Lewis's outfit, she dons a teal tracksuit and scraggly beard.

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week
What's It About? That's a very good question. Scarlett Johansson plays a mysterious woman who drives around the Scottish countryside looking for male hitchhikers. To reveal more would be a disservice to the movie... and difficult, since this atmospheric science-fiction film is open to interpretation.
Why We're In: Director Jonathan Glazer's very, very loose adaptation of the Michel Faber novel is disturbing and sexy. Plus, they used hidden cameras to film Johansson luring clueless hitchhikers into her big white van.

Thanks for joining me today. Unless there's been a major reshuffle, Lanre will be here tomorrow with more of the same (except infinitely cooler).

Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart and Brie Larson want to be one of the guys. Photos THR's Beauty Issue: Anne Hathaway, Olivia Wilde Pose With Their Imagemakers Or, at least, that's what they're singing about in the new video for Jenny Lewis' song.
