Lionsgate released their new romantic/drama film, "The Age of Adaline," into theaters this weekend, and all the reviews have been turned in from the top, major movie critics. It turns out that about half of them liked it, which is better than nothing I guess. It got a mixed 51 score out of a possible 100 across 30 reviews at the Metacritic.com site. The film stars: Harrison Ford, Blake Lively, Ellen Burstyn, Kathy Baker, Amanda Crew and Michiel Huisman. We've supplied blurbs from a couple of the critics,below. Matt Zoller Seitz from RogerEbert.com, gave it a decent 75 grade, stating: " Ford's voice — always deep, lowered an octave by age and one more by William's longing — is even more powerful. This is Ford's best performance since "The Fugitive," maybe since "Witness." Kyle Smith over at the New York Post, gave it a 75 grade ,saying: " The film is as tender and endearing as a lamb, »

Blake Lively’s “The Age of Adaline” is giving “Furious 7” a run for the money at the box office this weekend, and “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2” isn’t far behind. The Vin Diesel-Dwayne Johnson hot car blockbuster still has the inside track at being the first movie to win four consecutive weekends since “The Hunger Games” did it in 2012. “Furious 7” rolled to $4.8 million from a market-high 3,808 theaters Friday, which Universal estimates will translate into a roughly $16 million three-day total. That would probably be enough for it to reclaim the No. 1 spot it has held »

Blake Lively's romantic fantasy The Age of Adaline won the Friday box office race with $5 million from 2,991 theaters for a projected North American debut in the $12 million-plus range. Sill, that won't be enough to come in ahead of holdover Furious 7, which will win the sleepy weekend with an estimated $16.3 million from 3,760 theaters as it jumps the $300 million mark domestically. On Friday, the Universal blockbuster came in No. 2 with $4.8 million. Sony's Mall Cop 2 grossed $3.8 million Friday from 3,760 locations for an estimated weekend

Everywhere I look, all I see is Michael Huisman. On Game of Thrones, there he is as Daario Naharis – swashbuckling adventurer and wooer of the queen of dragons. One immensely popular show though does not suffice for Huisman. The Dutch actor, since transitioning to the U.S. from Amsterdam, has appeared in a bevy of shows ranging from Treme to Orphan Black to Nashville. Now Huisman takes the leap into cinemas, costarring opposite Blake Lively in the romance The Age of Adaline. In the picture, Huisman plays the world’s greatest guy: Ellis Jones – a handsome multi-millionaire philanthropist. Nobody else even stands a chance. Typically romances are founded on the dilemma of two competing suitors. Should the male or female lead go off and live ‘happily ever after’ with [Option A] or [Option B]? In The Age of Adaline, there is no [Option B]. Either Lively chooses to be with Huisman or she chooses to be with no one. »

Blake Lively has been extremely busy recently promoting her new movie Age of Adaline. So when the 27-year-old actress had to sit down for an interview with the L.A. Times, the multitasking mom had no choice but to bring baby daughter James with her! In fact, Lively even breastfed her little girl during the one-on-one chat! L.A. Times writer Amy Kaufman writes, "'Hi,' Blake Lively says, extending her free hand. Her other one is occupied, cradling her swaddled newborn, who nurses at her chest. She sits down on a couch, props a pillow on her lap and continues breast-feeding." Can you imagine?! "Lively hoped to conceal her pregnancy until she gave birth but shared the news at seven »
The good, the bad and the Blake Lively. From action-packed promo tours to glamorous red carpet events, Hollywood's hottest starlets stepped out this week in their favorite couture creations. While hot mama Blake looked chic in 10 different looks in 1 day during her "Age of Adaline" press marathon, new mom Hayden Panetierre was not-so-pretty-in-pink when she debuted her post baby bod this week. Kim Kardashian got it right (for once!) in a black eyelet Sophie Theallet gown at the Time 100 Gala, but the usually-stylish Olivia Wilde looked sloppy in sequins at the Tribeca Film Festival. Check out the clip above to see who toofab's Candice Brock, Anna Kachikyan and lifestyle blogger Sormeh Salimpour picked for the best and worst dressed stars, and take a closer look at the week's questionable fashion below!

Now that the Blake Lively parade is on pause, it's time to refocus our attention on two other worthy ladies—we're looking at you, Reese Witherspoon and Sofía Vergara. While promoting their upcoming flick, Hot Pursuit, the comedic pair have incited quite a style storm of their own. Point in case: Their most recent stop at 2015 CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Always a pink fan, Reese slipped into a popping J. Mendel magenta halter dress with punchy paisley embroidery. As for her 42-year-old co-star, Sofía slipped into a sultry white Cushnie et Ochs number with a striking mesh trim. For an appearance on Despierta America, Reese opted for a sweet pink fit-and-flare Shoshanna Eden frock with a subtle »
“Furious 7″ still has plenty of gas in the tank, as the tentpole’s poised to win its fourth straight weekend at the U.S. box office with about $16 million, according to early Friday estimates.
If “Furious 7″ can maintain its lead this weekend, it will become the first film to launch with four consecutive victories at the U.S. box office since Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games” in 2012. Marvel/Disney’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” had four straight wins last summer domestically but in its fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh weekends in release.

Telling it like it is! Blake Lively opened up about motherhood and her career in a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, and chose not to sugarcoat the experience of welcoming and raising her first child, daughter James, 4 months. "Having a baby is just living in the constant unexpected," the Age of Adaline star, 27, explained. "You never know when you're gonna get crapped on or when you're gonna get a big smile or when that smile immediately turns into hysterics." "It might be like living [...] »

On its surface, The Age of Adaline may look like what might happen if Nicholas Sparks wrote The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. But this strange little love story turns out to be the opposite of those Sparks swoon-fests, for better and for worse; in those films, effective, entertaining romance is generally undone by harebrained plotting and tonal mishmash. The Age of Adaline, for its part, delivers the twists and turns of its fantastical plot with elegance and confidence. Here, the weak romance threatens to bring everything down.The film offers us the story of a young woman, Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively), born on New Year’s Day in San Francisco in 1908, who loses the ability to age after a freak car accident and lightning strike. (Cutely verbose narration informs us that the specific scientific phenomenon that explains this won’t be discovered until 2035.) So, Adaline remains in her late 20s, »

In this weekend's The Age of Adaline, Blake Lively plays an ageless woman, but she's not the only star who gets a fake fountain of youth treatment. Harrison Ford plays an old friend of Adaline's, and when we flash back to the younger version of his character, William, meeting Adaline, you'll swear it's really Harrison Ford 40 years ago. But it's not - it's up-and-coming star Anthony Ingruber, who looks and sounds so much like Ford it's mind-boggling. Turns out, Ingruber has been doing impressions of celebrities on YouTube for years, not limited to just Ford. Here's what you need to know about the Harrison Ford sound-alike and the videos you need to see. »
Chicago – “The Age of Adaline” is a beautifully shot featherweight fantasy that remains charming as long as you don’t think about it too hard, or at all. At one point one character asks another why he loves Adaline, and he replies “because she makes no sense.” The same could be said for this movie.
It doesn’t make a lick of sense but I enjoyed it and it’s intoxicating in its own way. It goes down easy like a good “Manhattan” or some other vintage cordial of the era.
Blake Lively stars as Adaline, a pretty young woman who has a Zelig-like quality of being involved in just about every major event to happen in San Francisco in the first half of the 20th century. She’s born just after the great earthquake after all, on new years eve and gets herself into the movies when Thomas Edison »

Eternal life and eternal youth are two things the world, but particularly America, are infatuated with. People swallow handfuls of vitamins, eat the greenest of foods, and do a tremendous amount of exercise in order to stay in top physical condition to live a longer life. Medical advancements are such that lifespans have grown by decades. In terms of youth, people lather their faces with creams and lotions or just surgically alter their faces in order to look like they are still in "the prime of their life." Of course, these things end up being frivolous. Everyone ends up the same way. Dead. What if someone did have eternal life and was eternally young thoughc How would this person be able to justify it to anyone, form relationships with people, or just not be seen as a freakc The Age of Adaline looks to wrestle with these potentially very interesting questions. »
