This Friday, the Natalie Portman Western Jane Got a Gun hits theaters. The film has Portman playing the all-too-rare Western film heroine - a wife and mother who must fight off a gang of outlaws. (Watch a clip exclusive to People here.) The film, often described as a passion project of Portman's, has been a long time coming. The actress first became attached to the project back in 2012, and various delays held up production. Michael Fassbender, Jude Law and Bradley Cooper were each attached as playing one of the film's two main male characters, but then left due to conflicts »

Anne Hathaway has made a welcome return to the red carpet. The stylish actress, 33, made her first official appearance since E! News exclusively revealed in November that she is expecting her first child with husband Adam Shulman, 34, later this year. Though she's often photographed by the paparazzi, Hathaway has eschewed Hollywood events as she gears up for the arrival of her firstborn. She and Shulman made an exception Wednesday by co-hosting the L.A. Art Show and Los Angeles Fine Art Show's 2016 opening night premiere party, benefitting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Dave Annable, Odette Annable, Zach Braff, Holly Marie Combs, Shannen Doherty and Natasha Henstridge also attended the »
Continuing on his directorial path, one which appears to hopping from genre to genre, Zach Braff’s latest effort comes in the form of Going in Style, a modern retelling of New Line’s 1979 heist movie of the same name.
Due to hit theaters in May, the former Scrubs star has assembled quite the cast of Hollywood A-listers for his third foray behind the lens. As today’s first image from Entertainment Weekly reveals, Braff’s Going in Style is set to feature Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin as a trio of retirees robbed of their respective pensions.
Keen to stick it to the Man, Caine, Freeman and Arkin devise a plan to steal the money lost by pulling off a daring New York heist. That’s a slightly different angle than the one found in Martin Brest’s ’79 original, where the elderly trio simply decided to add »

The “Making a Talk Show Host” spoof includes subtitled phone conversations, Wisconsin accents and terrifying cello music.
The video opens with a 30 Rockefeller Center staff member calling Meyers to tell him that it’s time to come back to work. Like anyone on the tail end of a holiday vacation, Meyers is adamant that he’s not ready yet.
“I gotta come back?” Meyers asks.
“They don’t got no more reruns,” the staffer on the other line responds. Meyers asks what time his show is on and is told 12:35 a.m.
“God, that’s late,” he says as the bit ends on a Photoshop of the late-night host with a Steven Avery-like beard.

“Making a Murderer” proved to be the Dom Perignon of binge TV options for many showbizzers during the holiday break.
The ten-part documentary series about Steven Avery, a Wisconsin man who is believed to have been framed for the 2005 murder of photographer Teresa Halbach, has generated a storm of glowing reviews and discussion on social media about Avery’s fate. A Netflix rep said Sunday that at present there are no plans for the streaming service to feature any updates or additional material on Avery’s saga.
Outrage stirred since the docu series bowed on Dec. 18 has led to online petitions calling for his pardon, including a Change.org effort that had nearly 111,000 signatures as of Sunday evening. The detail in the docuseries from filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos has led to a chorus of critics calling for disciplinary actions against prosecutors in Wisconsin’s Manitowoc County and broader »
