What's Brexit, Anyway? All About the U.K.'s Vote to Leave the European Union - And Why It Matters to Americans

23 June 2016 2:10 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Today, Britons head to the polls for a referendum on whether they'll remain in the European Union. It's a history-making vote that the British have nicknamed "Brexit." But what is a "Brexit?" And why should those of us across the pond care? First off, let's cover the basics. What is a Brexit?A Brexit is shorthand for "British exit" from the European Union. If Britons choose to leave - to Brexit - it will be monumental. No country has ever left the EU before. Trade deals will take years to renegotiate. The U.K.'s currency, the pound sterling, would »

Hollywood’s UK Community Debates Brexit: Should They Stay Or Should They Go?

21 June 2016 4:51 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Britain doesn’t have to choose between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, but our friends across the pond are nevertheless faced with a hugely significant political decision of their own. Thursday’s vote on Brexit — the colloquial name given to the United Kingdom’s upcoming vote on whether or not to remain in the European Union — is a divisive issue, of course, with the husband of slain MP Jo Cox saying that the 41-year-old politician was murdered because of her strong political beliefs. The Economist currently tracks the polls at 44 percent in favor of remaining (or “bremaining”), 43 percent hoping to leave (“brexit”) and 11 percent undecided.

Steven Soderbergh’s Heist Thriller Logan Lucky Casts Jack Quaid

16 June 2016 1:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After finding some wiggle room in his commitment to HBO’s acclaimed music drama VinylJack Quaid has closed a deal to join Steven Soderbergh’s star-studded Nascar drama Logan Lucky.

Deadline has the scoop, revealing that the up-and-comer now joins an ensemble that features Channing Tatum, Katherine Heigl, Daniel Craig, Hillary Swank, Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough (The Girlfriend Experience) and Alien: Covenant’s Katherine Waterston. That’s a casting call that once made room for Michael Shannon, before a scheduling clash forced the Midnight Special star to bow out of the project in favor of Guillermo del Toro’s as-yet-untitled Cold War romance.

Rooted in North Carolina, Logan Lucky is pitched as a family drama revolving around two daring brothers who stage a heist during the midst of a Nascar race. It’s a feature that has been simmering on the back-burner for some time, particularly when you factor in the ‘will he, won’t he?’ debacle that ensued before Soderbergh eventually decided to return behind the lens for the first time since Side Effects three years ago. Mark Johnson, Gregory Jacobs and Reid Carolin are on board to produce.

With an enviable ensemble in tow, Logan Lucky is expected to enter production in the coming months ahead of a theatrical release at some point next year. Currently, Soderberg is still in search of a distributor. »

Steven Soderbergh Expands ‘Logan Lucky’ Cast, Jennifer Lawrence Teams With Adam McKay, and More

10 June 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Meanwhile, Steven Soderbergh is expanding his cast for his first feature since Side Effects, Logan Lucky.

Rolex in the Movies: The Action Timepiece

10 June 2016 7:16 AM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

It’s the most celebrated, the most special, the most significant watch of all time; Rolex is symbolic of many things in the movies: style, wealth, attitude, and perhaps most importantly, taste. That is not to say a Rolex is elitist, but rather that the wearer on screen, anyone from James Bond to Steve McQueen, is someone possessed of the knowledge that there is no better. Rolex is the pinnacle.

The history of Rolex on film is not nearly as interesting as the scope of its wearers and how this simple act of either discreet or ostentatious display can define character. Take James Bond, a man whose breeding was forced upon him; he developed taste and nurtured it. Roger Moore’s incarnation of 007, the most overlooked style wise, is 100% a Rolex customer – even if his custom Submariner in Live and Let Die (1971) was modified somewhat by Q Branch. Sorry, but »

50 brilliant independent bookshops in the UK

We're celebrating 50 brilliant UK independent bookshops. If your favourite is missing, please add it to the list below...

In Neil Gaiman’s preface to Shelf Life: Fantastic Stories Celebrating Bookstores, he describes four bookshops from his childhood. One was a travelling school shop, one a local store staffed by a helpful hippy where he’d pick up 25p Tom Disch novels, another was a bus ride away and owned by a Grinch who’d glower at schoolchildren customers, and the last was a now-defunct Soho sci-fi and fantasy treasure trove. Four individual shops run by booksellers with distinct personalities and idiosyncratic tastes. All of which made Gaiman what he is.

That’s the joy of independent bookshops. Their personalities shape those of the people who visit them. They’re not homogenous. Their stock tends to reflect their passions rather than the year's best-performing unit-shifters. And their »

'Alien: Covenant' Actress Katherine Waterston Joins Growing Cast in Steven Soderbergh's 'Logan Lucky'

9 June 2016 6:27 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Katherine Waterston may not be the most recognizable name just yet, but she certainly seems to be on the rise in Hollywood. A couple years ago, she was in P.T. Anderson's Inherent Vice, and just last year, she acted alongside Michael Fassbender in the Steve Jobs movie, and she'll be in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them later this year. She's currently dodging Xenomorphs in the movie Alien: Covenant, and now it looks like she's joined the growing cast of Steven Soderbergh's Logan Lucky, The Playlist reports.

Waterston will be joining an amazing ensemble cast that includes Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig, Riley Keough, Adam Driver, Katherine Heigl, Seth MacFarlane. The film revolves around two brothers looking to pull off a heist during a Nascar race. Given that this film has an ensemble cast and involves a heist, it's quite fitting that it comes from the same director as Ocean's Eleven. »

Hilary Swank And Katherine Waterston Board Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky

9 June 2016 2:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Steven Soderbergh does love his heist movies. After delivering Warner Bros. a corking heist trilogy, packed with A-list talent in the shape of Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen, he’s at it again. Logan Lucky is his next heist-related drama that’s now bolstered its cast with Oscar-winner Hilary Swank and Alien: Covenant‘s Katherine Waterston.

Unlike the Vegas charms of Ocean’s, Logan Lucky is a real-life drama based in the world of Nascar, and is set to follow the tale of two brothers who stage a near-impossible heist to take place during a race. The news hails from Deadline, who sadly don’t offer any additional details on who either of the actresses will play. Let’s hope they get to sink their teeth into something a little meatier than romantic interests though. Perhaps they’re a couple of mechanics? Fingers crossed.

Tom Hiddleston Probably Won't Be James Bond

7 June 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's been lots of press lately about potential replacements for Daniel Craig in the James Bond series, with Tom Hiddleston's name at the top of many lists of potential heirs to the 007 throne. But according to Hiddleston himself, the likelihood of him assuming the Bond mantle is apparently pretty low.

Hiddleston dropped the disappointing news during a panel discussion at Wizard World Philadelphia last weekend, where he appeared alongside Chris Hemsworth to discuss "Thor: Ragnarok." But when the moderator asked Hiddleston if he wanted to talk about anything else -- say, announce a certain casting in a certain spy franchise -- the actor had to admit that the possibility didn't look so certain after all.

"I'm sorry to disappoint you, everybody," Hiddleston told the excited crowd, whose passionate screams quickly devolved into cries of disbelief. "I don't think that announcement is coming. But I'm very gratified to hear the enthusiasm. »
