Tiff will close out the 2014 festival with "A Little Chaos." The period film is led by Kate Winslet, with Stanley Tucci, Matthias Schoenaerts and Alan Rickman (who also directs) in support in this film that has a fairly unconventional plot. Here's the synopsis: A landscape gardener with a taste for the unconventional is invited to design one of the fountains at the Palace of Versailles. As she battles with the weather, the perilous rivalries at the court of Louis Xiv and her own private demons, she finds herself drawn closer to the formality and enigma of the architect who hired her. Moving a completely different direction, Paul Dano is channeling Brian Wilson in Bill Pohlad's "Love & Mercy." Elizabeth Banks, John Cusack and Paul Giamatti make up the intriguing supporting cast. Here's the synopsis: Focusing on Brian Wilson, the mercurial singer, songwriter and leader of The Beach Boys, Love & Mercy paints an unconventional. »

If you're a fan of The Beach Boys song "Never Learn Not to Love," don't plan on ever hearing it live ... because John Stamos says the band never performs it ... because Charles Manson wrote it. Backstory: Dennis Wilson befriended Manson before he became famous for all the wrong reasons. Manson had written this song, which Wilson re-worked into "Never Learn Not to Love," which made it onto their early 1969 album "20/20."Manson became manic after the release, »

Didn't stay up for Monday night's late night talk shows? Here's some of what you might have missed:
Melissa McCarthy stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to promote her new movie, "Tammy," and while Kimmel asked her about a host of topics, the conversation always seemed to turn back to McCarthy's costar, Susan Sarandon, who plays McCarthy's grandmother in the film. In the first clip, the actress chatted about her upcoming handprint ceremony at Tcl (formerly Grauman's) Chinese Theater in Hollywood, and how she may go barefoot to imprint her feet, a technique suggested by Sarandon. "If it's good enough for Susan Sarandon, I'm gonna fake that it's good enough for me," McCarthy said.
Speaking of Sarandon, in the next clip, McCarthy discussed how the veteran actress's beauty was actually a hindrance to production, since Tammy and her grandmother are supposed to look "dumpy" in the film. But Sarandon is so naturally pretty, »

Brian Wilson’s new album features the Beach Boys legend collaborating with such artists as Kacey Musgraves, Lana Del Ray and Zooey Deschanel, as well as, possibly, Frank Ocean. After Wilson broke the news on his website yesterday, citing an upcoming story in Rolling Stone, not all of his fans responded to the news positively. And that hurt Wilson’s feelings and made him mad. Last night, he sent out a message— in total “Brianspeak” to the naysayers via Facebook: To my fans: it kind of bums me out to see some of the negativity here about the album I’ve been working so hard on. In my life in music, I’ve been told too many times not to fuck with the formula, but as an artist it’s my job to do that – and I think I’ve earned that right. I’m really proud of these new »
Radcliffe, 24, and Darke, 29, recently confirmed that they had been dating for two years, since meeting on the set of Kill Your Darlings, in which Radcliffe took on the role of Allen Ginsberg. And, on Sunday, the sweet couple made their red carpet debut at the 2014 Tony Awards, where Radcliffe’s current play The Cripple of Inishmaan was nominated for Best Revival of a Play.
Though Radcliffe was rumored to have proposed to Darke in May, the actress’ ring finger was noticeably bare on the Tony Awards red carpet.

One of the stars of the new Postman Pat movie, Rupert Grint, chats to us about the film, Harry Potter, Knightmare and more...
I felt sorry for Rupert Grint. Just an hour before he ended up speaking to me, he'd been interviewed live on air on Radio 2. Then he ended up in a basement of a London office, clutching a coffee, with me. While I had him trapped though, I got ten minutes of his time, and here's how it went...
You're clearly a much younger, more attractive and more learned man than me, and I expect our experiences of childrens' television is very different. Postman Pat is clearly a big thing for you, but what were the TV shows that helped define your youth? What were you watching as you grew up?
I really identified with characters that did things that it was feasible to achieve. Fireman Sam! »

The actor, 35, who says he loves The Beach Boys and fixing things, chatted with People this week about "one last thing." Last moment of blissIt's such a man thing, but if I can fix something, it's blissful for me. I'm renting this house, and there is a French press coffeemaker that just wouldn't go together correctly. It was a very simple thing, but I did it and it made my coffee so much more delicious. Last musical obsessionI've been getting back into The Beach Boys. I started »

Natchez, Mississippi. If you greet biopics with a certain amount of trepidation, "Get On Up" director Tate Taylor is right there with you. "I’ve never been a big fan of biopics," the well-dressed helmer of "The Help" tells a pair of visiting reporters, pausing between shots in mid-December, more than eight months before the scheduled August 1, 2014 release date. "The last one I really loved was 'Coal Miner’s Daughter.' I loved that," Taylor continues. "Coal Miner's Daughter," which won an Oscar for Sissy Spacek, opened in 1980. "For me I think what makes them successful is I approached this as, 'This is a movie about an amazing man. And, oh yeah, he’s James Brown.' That’s how I approached this, is who he was and what made him the man he was," Taylor explains. "And what I honed in on, what I thought was special is you »

Millions of kids have grown up watching Drake Bell on Nickelodeon's Drake & Josh, but the former child star grew up watching television from a very different era. "My dad was a huge influence on me when I was a kid," Bell, 27, tells People. "He sat me in front of the TV and it was all the classics - I Love Lucy, Abbot and Costello and Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin - and we'd get in the car and being listening to Elvis and The Beatles and The Beach Boys." Bell's interest in the 1950s was sidelined for a while as »

The ending of "Say Anything..." has secured its place in pop culture as a symbol of romantic hope, mostly remembered as that movie with that scene where John Cusack blares Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" from a boombox he holds over his head. But what if what was playing was something very different? Like, really different?
Say, I don't know, The Beach Boys' "Kokomo"?
Shout out to Mandatory, who posted this re-imagining of the classic scene. It plays out subtly at first, but the longer you watch, the more you grow to appreciate just how hilariously different this classic moment could have played out had the song been, say, anything else. »

After breaking through with”Torches’” hit “Pumped Up Kicks,” the most uplifting infectious song ever about a serial killer, Foster the People returns three years later with its second album, “Supermodel.” “Supermodel” relies on synthesizers and electronics as “Torches” did, but also brings in other elements: lead singer and band namesake Mark Foster traveled to Morocco, as well as wrote an orchestral score for the film, “Bella,” and both of these experiences inform “Supermodel”: it is much more expansive in its musicality than “Torches.” For example, an African flair flavors opening track “Are You What You Want To Be,” after it kicks off with a straight-ahead guitar rock riff. Foster the People aren’t veering into “Graceland” territory by any means (or even Vampire Weekend’s “Contra”), but it’s nice to hear the trio stretching a little. Also added here are more acoustic elements: a lovely piano line runs through first single, »
