Based on Amy-Jo Albany’s memoir about growing up in the care of her gifted but frequently absent musician father, Low Down focuses on what it was like for Amy (Elle Fanning) to turn to the love of her aging grandmother (Glenn Close) while Joe (John Hawkes) struggled as much with his heroin addiction as he did finding gigs. In the years between 1974 and 1976, surrounded by a ragtag bunch of Hollywood outcasts and eccentrics, Amy was witness to heartbreak and tragedy, but still hung onto the love she had for her family. Directed by Jeff Preiss, the film also stars Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage and Flea. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Elle Fanning talked about why she wanted to do this project, using her imagination to put herself in Amy’s shoes, learning about the jazz music that’s showcased in the film, having to kiss Peter Dinklage, »

Elle Fanning is super-excited about her next project: Halloween. She might be one of the hardest-working actresses in Hollywood—with four films in theaters in 2014, including the blockbuster Maleficent—but she's still only 16 and her Halloween costume is an elaborate production. "It's a secret," she says, when asked about her trick-or-treat dress-up plans. "But I'll give you some of my greatest hits: I was the Morton Salt Girl. I was Strawberry Shortcake. I've been a Barbie Statue of Liberty. I've been Mary Poppins. I was a Madame Alexander doll. I was a vampire, but that was like a very glamorous done-up vampire. »

Well, if you thought the whole Breaking Bad toys ordeal was over when Toys ‘R’ Us pulled the action figures from their shelves, you were wrong. While Breaking Bad actor Bryan Cranston posted some slightly humorous responses to the event on Twitter, his co-star Aaron Paul isn’t joking when he expresses his angry feelings towards Toys ‘R’ Us. Paul took to Twitter after it was announced that Toys ‘R’ Us was removing the toys from their shelves, citing what he believed to be more harmful things that the store was still selling, such as Barbies and violent video games. He even pretended to bring President Obama into the conversation. Wait, so @ToysRUs pulled all of the Breaking Bad figures from their shelves and still sells Barbie? Hmmmm…I wonder what is more damaging? “@BarackObama: Wait, are you serious about the whole @ToysRUs thing?!?” Yes I am Mr. President. Yes I am. »

Here's something you might not know: Toys R Us sells Breaking Bad figurines of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. Here's something you might have predicted: parents aren't happy about the idea of their kids playing with figurines of bald, meth-dealing science teachers. One Florida mother is so outraged that her petition against Toys R Us stocking the toys, which feature Walter carrying a gun and a bag of meth, has made headlines this week. In an amusing twist of events, Bryan Cranston entered the controversy by tweeting a response to the woman's complaint: "Florida mom petitions against Toys 'R Us over Breaking Bad action figures." I'm so mad, I'm burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest — Bryan Cranston (@BryanCranston) October 20, 2014 Meanwhile, Aaron Paul had less of a jokey response when he learned that Toys R Us had actually pulled the Breaking Bad figurines in response to the petition.

Looks like Toys "R" Us won't be on Aaron Paul's holiday shopping destinations. The Breaking Bad vet took to Twitter on Thursday to blast the retailer for yanking Breaking Bad-themed dolls from its stores earlier this week after some petition pressure from a Florida mother. In her online petition, which gathered 9,000-plus signatures, Susan Meyers said that Toys "R" Us' decision to "sell a Breaking Bad doll, complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth, alongside children’s toys is a dangerous deviation from their family friendly values."

Just because Brad Pitt is in on the jokes doesn't make the latest “Between Two Ferns” interview any less awkward. The “Fury” star sat down with Zach Galifianakis to discuss his new movie but the conversation soon turned into one about his personal life. See photos: Party Report in Pictures: Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Bryan Cranston, Kate Hudson, and President Obama “Is it hard for you to maintain a suntan?” Galifianakis asked Pitt, “Because you live in your wife's shadow.” Pitt, who married actress Angelina Jolie in August, maintained his composure and allowed Galifianakis to take a second strike at him. »

As I noted shortly after its release this past May, Gareth Edwards' Godzilla has a lot of trouble in the female character department. While the male leads Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston and Ken Watanabe got to play solid characters and had an active role in the story, Juliette Binoche was killed off almost instantly; Elizabeth Olsen did little more than worry about her husband and look up in terror; and Sally Hawkins just mutely followed Watanabe around the whole time. This element definitely bothered me as an audience member watching the movie, and it turns out that I wasn't alone: it turns out that Juliette Binoche wasn't too happy about Godzilla's lacking female characters either. Talking with Indiewire about her experience making Godzilla, the French actress revealed that she originally signed on to be in the blockbuster monster movie thanks to what she described as a "beautiful letter »

No half-measures, even in the toy game. Toys "R" Us is removing a controversial line of Breaking Bad action figures featuring drug kingpin Walter "Heisenberg" White and sidekick-nemesis Jesse Pinkman armed with bags of cash and meth. This follows a heavily publicized protest led by a Florida mother, who earned over 9,000 signatures with her Change.org petition.
"Let's just say, the action figures have taken an 'indefinite sabbatical,'" Toys "R" Us spokeswoman Kathleen Waugh cleverly told NBC News, referencing a classic line from the acclaimed AMC drama. But this »

Update: Toys 'R Us has decided to pull the Breaking Bad action figures off the shelves following angry mothers petitioning against toys being sold. The company tells E! News in a statement, "Let's just say, the action figures have taken an 'indefinite sabbatical.'" ___________________________________________________________ Attention all angry mothers—the man has spoken.

Toys R Us is sending its “Breaking Bad” action figures on a trip to Belize, if you catch the drift.
Following a Change.com petition from a Florida mom that called for the retailer to stop selling its line of action figures based on the AMC drama, the toy company announced it would pull the collection from its shelves and online store. The petition claimed that the toys were a “dangerous deviation from (Toy R Us’) family friendly values.”
“Let’s just say, the action figures have taken an ‘indefinite sabbatical,'” a Toys R Us rep said in a statement, referencing a line from the show.
The toys, which the petition says included “a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth,” were intended for consumers 15 and up. As of Tuesday evening the petition had over 8,700 signatures.

Walter White is no match for one concerned parent. Toys "R" Us has removed a line of Breaking Bad action figures from shelves following a Florida mom's grassroots crusade, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The toy line for the AMC drama, which starred Bryan Cranston as a chemistry teacher who resorts to cooking meth, has been pulled from shelves, effective immediately. The line included figurines of characters Walter and Jesse Pinkman, with Walter's likeness including a tiny tray of crystal meth.

A Breaking Bad line of actions figures available at Toys"R"Us, which come “complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth,” are causing quite a stir. A Florida mom, who is even an admitted fan of the AMC drama, has started a petition to have the toy store chain remove the toy line from their shelves. Bryan Cranston, who won multiple Emmys for his role as chemistry-teacher-turned-meth-lord Walter White on the show, took to twitter to comment on the petition:

This summer's "Godzilla" was memorable for a few things, but for cinephiles, it was a blockbuster that rounded up some pretty great acting talent....only to kill them off (Bryan Cranston, Juliette Binoche) or shunt them into the background (Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn). Perhaps one of the most disappointing person to see exit the movie so early was Binoche. The great French actress didn't have much to do except die in the opening minutes, but according to her, it had quite the impact on Quentin Tarantino. "[Quentin] Tarantino said to me, 'That was the first time I've ever cried during a 3D blockbuster. I had to take off my glasses to wipe away my tears.' I took it as a compliment," Binoche told Indiewire. As for the experience of shooting the movie—which she notes she only took thanks to a "beautiful letter" from director Gareth Edwards—she »
