Ahead of its release next month, a new poster and trailer have arrived online for Blumhouse Production’s Visions, which sees Isla Fisher leading a cast that also includes Anson Mount, Eva Longoria, Joanna Cassidy, Jim Parsons and Gillian Jacobs. Check them out here…
Leaving her hectic city lifestyle behind, young mother-to-be Eveleigh (Fisher) joins her husband David (Mount) at their beautiful new vineyard home only to be plagued by terrifying noises and visions of a sinister hooded figure. No one else hears or sees these hallucinations, not even David, who grows increasingly worried about his wife’s well-being.
Desperate to prove her sanity, Eveleigh hunts down locals who reveal the haunted history of the vineyard in which she now resides. But when the pieces come together, the answer is far different – and more dangerous to her and her baby – than she ever imagined.
Visions is set for release on September 17th. »

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux threw a lavish bash at their Bel Air, CA, mansion on Wednesday, complete with a wooden stage and seating for 74 guests. While some speculated it was a sweet surprise party for Justin, who turns 44 on Monday, it was actually the couple's long-awaited wedding! Jen and Justin, who got engaged in 2012 after he popped the question on his birthday, threw the lavish affair in their backyard, and guests included Lisa Kudrow, Chelsea Handler, Ellen DeGeneres, and Howard Stern. But there was one guest who stood out the most: a pastor. According to photos posted on TMZ, the pastor made his way inside carrying a Bible as party staffers were seen arriving with a large cake topped with two puppet characters. Last November, Jen joked to Ellen that her friends always assume her parties will turn out to be her wedding, especially Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen. »

Despite the fact that many modern forms of magic appear to have evolved from simple tricks, like those featured in the Royal Vegas Rabbit in the hat game into ridiculous feats of stupidity or endurance, there is still a rich history of real magical performance and style. Of course magic is always a great concept to delve into and the perfect fodder for movie goers to enjoy as well. Magicians and magic have featured in a number of popular, and not so popular, movies throughout the years each tackling certain aspects of the industry whether it’s going behind the scenes or directly trying to outwit and trick the audience themselves. We take a look at just a few examples of this magical sub-genre.
The Prestige (2006)
This brilliantly conceived mystery thriller about rival magicians attempting to upstage each other using various techniques of trickery comes from renowned director Christopher Nolan. »

If "Wedding Crashers" had been a real wedding, we'd owe it a gift of tin or aluminum now, since those are the traditional 10th anniversary presents.
When the raunchy romantic comedy came out 10 years ago this week (on July 15, 2005), it proved a career highlight for stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, while pushing the careers of Isla Fisher and Bradley Cooper to the next level. In the decade since, some of the movie's stars have flourished while others have had a more tumultuous ride. Here's what's happened to the whole "Wedding" party since the last slice of cake went into the freezer.

The music video is in a state of evolution at the moment. Sure, plenty of bands cut the standard promos that MTV used to play back in the day, but it's the videos that expand the form and have viral potential that tend to get passed around. Rihanna's bonkers clip for "Bitch Better Have My Money" became an instant sensation, while Yo La Tengo recently turned its cover of The Cure's "Friday I'm In Love" into the soundtrack for the apocalypse. And now, U2 have done something special for the latest single, "Song For Someone."

It’s been some time since Johnny Depp graced our screens. He’s been a Hollywood icon for over 30 years and has starred in some of the biggest box office smashes in history as some of the most recognisable characters on our screens.
So much so that in a recent poll by Ladbrokes, he was voted the UK’s favourite current celebrity. Which is quite the accolade in a world of the Kardashians and Ryan Gosling.
Of course, that’s because he has a fantastic back catalogue of work, but what ranks up there amongst his best?
A Nightmare on Elm Street may have been Johnny Depp’s first role on the big screen, but he showed no sign of nerves with a magnificent performance as Glen Lantz, one of the main characters who experience the horrific nightmares of Freddy Krueger.
Depp was aged just 21 at the time, »

Headey opted out of going naked for the harrowing six-minute sequence "for several reasons", one of which was so she could fully focus on the emotions in her performance.
The actress also wasn't involved in the casting process for her double, adding: "I was like, 'Listen guys, she happens to have a beautiful body, but I don't do casting'. If somebody is brave enough to do this, I applaud it."
We've found 11 other actors and actresses who've spoken candidly about choosing a body double instead of baring their naked bits on the big screen.
And you may find some film scenes quite surprising (it wasn't really Kevin Costner frolicking naked in a waterfall!).

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...
Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »
Well hello there, Isla Fisher! The redheaded beauty was snapped on the set of her upcoming flick Keeping Up With the Joneses in Atlanta less than three months after giving birth to her third child. The actress donned a skintight bandage dress, highlighting her killer post-baby body, and a robe as she walked around set snapping pics on her iPhone. Fisher even caught up with her co-star Jon Hamm by her trailer and chatted with him before the two began filming a scene together. Fisher and hubby Sacha Baron Cohen welcomed their third together, Montgomery Moses Brian Baron Cohen, on March 17. The famous duo also has two daughters together, Elula and Olive. Fisher may be working on »
Every once in a while, a star veers away from the world of Hollywood to try their hand at fiction writing, and some celebrities have become well-received authors in their own right. Tom Hanks, for instance, penned a short story for The New Yorker last year, and he's also publishing a short-story collection. Meanwhile, The Bachelor's Chris Harrison released a romantic novel last month, and a Ya novel by Kendall and Kylie Jenner hit shelves last Summer. If you're looking new fiction to dive into, take a look at these books written by celebrities, including picks from stars Isla Fisher, Ethan Hawke, and Britney Spears. »
Taste the happy, Netflix subscribers – producer Brian Grazer confirmed on the Adam Carolla Show podcast this week that Arrested Development will begin production on new episodes for the streaming giant sometime next year.
“Netflix is determined to do more epsiodes, so we’re going to do more episodes,” Grazer told Carolla, noting that everything is only just falling into place for a fifth season of the beloved cult comedy, which was famously revived for an online fourth season seven years after Fox originally pulled the plug. Reviews were mixed-to-positive on Netflix’s continuation, and the series was such a reputation-booster for Netflix that it makes sense that the company would want to double down on more Bluth misadventures.
Production will start early next year, Grazer said, and fans can expect to see new episodes “four months after that,” so in the late spring or early summer of 2016. Grazer told Caolla »

Lionsgate has high hopes for its 2016 sequel, Now You See Me 2, which it hopes will build on the $350m gross for 2013's surprise hit. The sequel has added Daniel Radcliffe to its cast (which also includes returnees Jesse Eisenberg, Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco), although Isla Fisher's pregnancy means she's missing from episode two.
But there's a sporting chance her Now You See Me days are not over. Lionsgate boss Jon Feltheimer has revealed that the firm is already in the early planning stages for Now You See Me 3, and Fisher may well thus return in that way.
The surprise success of the first stage-magicians-pulling-a-heist thriller Now You See Me naturally led to the greenlight for a second film, which is a year away from release. But Lionsgate is apparently already so confident in the sequel that it has announced that a third film is in development. Speaking in the context of a less-than-sexy call with analysts to talk up the company’s earning profile, Lionsgate boss Jon Feltheimer announced that he and his team were already planning a third outing, which will surely end up being called Now You See Three, unless they don’t like laughter or fun.The original, which saw Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco as performers The Four Horsemen recruited for a series of daring robberies with an ulterior motive, took in less than $30 million on its opening weekend, but eventually made more than $351 million worldwide. The sequel, called »
The new project was recently announced as part of Lionsgate's strategy to focus on franchises.
The CEO also said that production had finished on Now You See Me: The Second Act, which will be released in both Us and UK cinemas on June 10, 2016.
Watch a trailer for 2013's Now You See Me below: »
Even though the film was painfully disappointing considering its outstanding cast, Now You See Me was a bit hit for Lionsgate, and the studio has moved forward on Now You See Me 2. Even though the sequel, officially titled Now You See Me: The Second Act, won’t arrive until next summer, the studios is now developing Now You See Me 3. Variety reports that Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer told analysts, “We’ve already begun early planning for ‘Now You See Me 3,” during a conference call to discuss quarterly earnings. Production recently wrapped on Now You See Me: The Second Act, which stars Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Lizzy Caplan, Dave Franco, Michael Caine, and Daniel Radcliffe, and it will be interesting to see how the cast for the sequel lines up. The sequel lost Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman, and Melanie Laurent, but gained Caplan and Radcliffe. If Lionsgate wants to make this a legit franchise, »

They haven’t got Now You See Me 2 in cinemas yet – indeed that movie is a year off release, but Lionsgate are already planning Now You See Me 3 as the studio works to focus in more on their franchise opportunities.
The word, via Variety, is that Lionsgate is expecting Now You See Me 2 to top the $350 million in earnings from the first film in the series, that saw Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine star.

From humble sleeper hit to bona fide series, the story behind Lionsgate’s Now You See Me franchise has been one riddled with success, and even though The Second Act isn’t set to slink into theaters until 2016, the studio has went one step further to greenlight a third installment in the crime caper franchise.
Speaking at an earnings call earlier today, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer confirmed that the studio has entered the “early planning” stage in relation to the threequel, and a Now You See Me 3 dovetails with the company’s plan to double down on bankable franchises. Back in 2013, the original movie pulled in an impressive $350 million at the worldwide box office off the back of a $75 million budget, and Lionsgate will be hoping to increase this profit margin moving forward.
In fact, it’s a trend seen across the studio’s roster of IP, what with the »
