Actress Rachel McAdams was put in an awkward spot during a recent visit to "Today," when she was unexpectedly confronted with her audition tape from "The Notebook," which just celebrated its 10th anniversary.
McAdams, who had stopped by to promote her new thriller "A Most Wanted Man," was caught off guard when a conversation with host Matt Lauer unexpectedly turned to her audition for the Nicholas Sparks weeper, the footage of which recently landed online. Lauer asked McAdams if it was strange to watch her younger self, and when the actress admitted she hadn't seen the tape -- "It would be weird," she said -- Lauer all too gleefully rolled the footage.
The scene shows a tearful McAdams arguing with an off-screen Ryan Gosling, and as the actress watched the clip, a split screen showed her covering her mouth in embarrassment and turning away from the footage.

In my opinion a new Woody Allen movie every year is a bit of a treat. Yes, they can disappoint such as Whatever Works, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger and To Rome with Love, but they can also be true knock outs such as Vicki Cristina Barcelona and Midnight in Paris, along with the stunning performance from Cate Blanchett in last year's Blue Jasmine, and that's only looking at the last six Allen films. He's directed nearly 50 over his illustrious career and I'd say his latest, Magic in the Moonlight, falls somewhere in the middle. Set in France in the 1920s, the film is complete with all the acerbic wit, pessimism for life and otherwise charm the better Allen films often exude. Magic in the Moonlight's first two-thirds are delightful as we're first introduced to Colin Firth in the role of Stanley Crawford, a pompous and arrogant »

By now, we’re all well-aware that Zac Efron has a penchant for taking his shirt off—he’s gone shirtless in a Nicholas Sparks romance, in a Seth Rogen comedy, even in Disney Channel Original Movies. But now he’s taking it off for… a show with Bear Grylls?
Famous survivalist Bear Grylls lured in some famous friends, including Ben Stiller and Channing Tatum, to go on remote adventures with him for new NBC reality show Running Wild. For Zac Efron’s episode, the two ventured into the Catskill Mountains of New York to repel down cliffs and jump out of helicopters—shirtless, »

On Saturday, Hollywood leading man James Garner died of natural causes in Los Angeles. He was 86.
Rip to a legend. James Garner was both a kind man and gifted actor. It was an honor to work with him on #TheNotebook. He will be missed.

When crafting a romantic comedy, there are a few films that are widely considered to make up the gold standard—and believe it or not, they’re not generally associated with Nicholas Sparks. When people discuss the greatest romantic comedies of all time, they often talk about Sleepless in Seattle, Annie Hall, and, inevitably, Rob Reiner’s 1989 rom-com When Harry Met Sally. With Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan in the title roles, When Harry Met Sally gave viewers a lot more than a catchphrase (“I’ll have what she’s having”). It gave viewers a love story for the ages. »

Think back to all your teenage crushes. Most of them probably won you over in Nicholas Sparks movies. From bad-boy-turned-epic-love Shane West in A Walk to Remember to Ryan Gosling and his Notebook kisses in the rain, these characters know how to steal your heart. The question is whether you're into war veterans like Zac Efron in The Lucky One or Channing Tatum in Dear John or more about beachside loves like Liam Hemsworth in The Last Song or Josh Duhamel in Safe Haven. Or are you perhaps partial to silver fox Richard Gere in Nights in Rodanthe? And there are two others who have yet to debut on the big screen that you could love too: James Marsden's scruffy character in the upcoming Best of Me and Scott Eastwood's mysterious one in The Longest Ride. It's a tough call, but vote for your favorite Nicholas Sparks stud below. »

Wme has just signed Dana Stevens, the prolific feature writer who is the exec producer and sole creator of Reckless on CBS. Stevens last year adapted the Nicholas Sparks novel Safe Haven for Relativity, and her other credits include City Of Angels and the Kevin Costner baseball pic For Love Of The Game. She currently is adapting for James Cameron’s Lightstorm and Fox The Dive, the touching story of Cuban free diver Pipin Ferreras and his wife Audrey Mestres, the latter of whom died trying to better her record for a free dive, in which she plunged to an unimaginable […] »
Wednesday has officially been canceled due to the news that Eva Mendes is allegedly pregnant with Ryan Gosling‘s baby. Ok! magazine first reported that Eva is seven months pregnant with Baby Goose’s child, and that the entire thing is a “dream come true” for the happy couple. If love and babies and morning sickness are so great, then why do I feel so bad?
Was I wrong to waste time hoping that after the 10-year anniversary of The Notebook, Ryan and ex-girlfriend Rachel McAdams would reconnect, only to ride off into the sunset like shirtless Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez? I know they broke up in 2008. And, yes, Ryan and Eva can be cute together, both on screen and off (see below).

They’re also both ridiculously good looking. They really should procreate if only to bring more beauty into this sad and ugly world.

As much as I dislike the works of author Nicholas Sparks, I have to admit that The Notebook may be the most tolerable. Yes, it is tripe and overly sentimental, but the romance between Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams feels genuine. And then I heard the news that Gosling and McAdams did not get along during production on the Nick Cassavetes film. In fact, Cassavetes revealed that Gosling wanted McAdams fired from the production. In a recent interview with VH1 about The Notebook, Cassavetes »

After the death of Paul Walker, Universal Pictures struggled to get "Fast and Furious 7" back into development. But despite a $50 million insurance pay-out, the studio and director James Wan still had to figure out how to use the latest technology to work Walker into a bunch of new scenes. The entire thing ended up hurting production by not only slowing it down, but also frustrating the rest of the cast, like Vin Diesel. With all that going on, Universal recently wrapped filming and has announced that it's moving the released date up by one week from April 10th, 2015 to April 3rd, 2015. "Fast and Furious 7" will now go up against Nicholas Sparks' "The Longest Ride." It was also going to go up against Wan's "Insidious: Chapter 3," but the new horror installment was just moved to May 29th, 2015. »
The release date for James Wan's Fast And Furious 7 has been changed again. The film was originally set to be released this summer before Paul Walker was killed in a car accident last year. After Universal decided to move forward with the seventh installment in the franchise, it was announced the film will be in theaters on April 10, 2015. It has now been moved up a week to April 3, 2015, and will open against the Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Longest Ride. Insidious: Chapter »

Right on the heels of Universal moving Fast & Furious 7 up a week from April 10th, 2015, to April 3rd, Focus Features has announced some schedule changes of its own for 2015. Now, horror threequel Insidious: Chapter 3 will open not on April 3rd next year but May 29th. Furthermore, sci-fi drama Selfless has moved from February 27th to April 17th, and Oscar winner Kevin Macdonald’s treasure hunt drama Black Sea has been set for January 23rd.
Now, let’s look at those one at a time.
We don’t know much about Insidious: Chapter 3 other than that it will star The Grey actor Dermot Mulroney and A.N.T. Farm actress Stefanie Scott. Leigh Whannell is both directing and scripting this installment, and he is also expected to reprise his role as Specs. Also returning from previous installments will be Angus Sampson as Tucker and Lin Shaye as Elise Rainier. Unfortunately, Insidious »

After a long delay in shooting due to the passing of original franchise star Paul Walker, it looks like things are starting to wind down on the Fast & Furious 7 set. Dwayne Johnson said his goodbyes to the cast and crew yesterday. Now, Universal Pictures, confident that they have a great movie ready for release, have decided to bring the latest installment of their Fast & Furious franchise to fans one week early.
Originally slated to hit theaters on April 10, Dom, Brian and the rest of the gang will go on their latest mission starting April 3, 2015. That slides it up against the Nicholas Sparks romance The Longest Ride, which is sure to bring some stiff competition at the box office. The April 3 release slot was once occupied by the latest installment of Fast & Furious 7 director James Wan's Insidious Chapter 3 (he's producing this time out). That horror sequel has been moved to »
Update: "Insidious: Chapter 3" has now been pushed up to May 29. Earth-shattering news: "Fast and Furious 7" is coming out a whole week earlier than expected April, 3, 2015. Okay, I'm just being silly. Release dates in Hollywood are actually a pretty big deal, and this puts the action sequel up against some mild-to-moderate competition: horror threequel "Insidious Chapter 3" and the Nicholas Sparks adaptation "The Longest Ride." Then again, who are we kidding? This thing's gonna be massive no matter what. Originally slated for release on July 11, 2014, "Fast and Furious 7" was put on hold after star Paul Walker tragically died in a car accident several weeks into filming. As previously reported, existing footage of the actor will still appear in the film, with the remainder of his role to be accomplished through the use of body doubles (Walker's brothers Caleb and Cody have been brought in as stand-ins) and CGI.

Fast and Furious 7 is coming to theaters even faster. The film was originally scheduled to be released this month, before the death of franchise star Paul Walker pushed the project to April 10, 2015. And now Universal announced Wednesday that the date is changing again, this time moving up a week to April 3.
While FF7 didn’t yet face any competition on April 10, the Nicholas Sparks-penned romantic drama The Longest Ride is currently slated to come out on April 3 next year; sounds like pretty good counter-programming. Insidious: Chapter 3 was originally set to bow on the third, but Focus announced Wednesday that »

J. David Stem and David N. Weiss ("Daddy Day Camp," "Are We There Yet," "Shrek 2") will be writing the script, and Anne Fletcher ("The Guilt Trip," "27 Dresses," "Step Up") will direct. How could this go wrong?!
There's no word on whether or not Adams, who has wowed audiences with dramatic performances in "American Hustle," "Her," "The Master," among others, will reprise her role as Giselle, and, well, why would she? Her career is so crazy good that it would be silly to take a break from her dramatic work to sing for her supper in a sequel.

The film opens in theaters nationwide on October 17.

Their bittersweet reunion reignites the love they’ve never forgotten, but soon they discover the forces that drove them apart twenty years ago live on, posing even more serious threats today. Spanning decades, this epic love story captures the enduring power of our first true love, and the wrenching choices we face when confronted with elusive second chances.

If Rachel McAdams was a bird, Ryan Gosling didn't want to be a bird. More details from The Notebook have come out as the beloved film celebrates its 10th anniversary. Director Nick Cassavetes shed some light on what really happened on the set of the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' novel in a new interview with VH1. Though the film's stars, McAdams and Gosling, played on-screen lovers and later went on to date for about two years, Cassavetes revealed that on The Notebook set they were often [...] »
