Despite the lottery-esque sounding odds, the U.S Dramatic Competition section which produces the finest American indie specimens such as Frozen River, Winter’s Bone, Blue Valentine, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Fruitvale Station and Whiplash is fairly consistent in terms of quality. Last year’s crop of sixteen have almost all had their theatrical releases with Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter being the last one out of the gates (pegged with an early 2015 release). Last week we individually looked at our top 80 Sundance Film Fest Predictions (you’ll find 30 other titles worth considering in our intro) and below, we’ve split the list into narrative and non-fiction film items and have both identified and color-coded our picks in an AtoZ cheat sheet. You’ll find 2015′s answer to Whiplash located somewhere in the stack below. Click on the individual titles below, for the film’s profile. »

While Jennifer Aniston may be busy promoting her forthcoming movie Cake (and even garnering Oscar buzz!), the 45-year-old still finds time for the most important man in her life: fiancé Justin Theroux. The engaged lovebirds enjoyed a date night on Monday at the 24 Hour Plays event in NYC, where the two tried to remain incognito, but couldn't hide their love for each other. According to an eyewitness, Jen and Justin "were very discreet when they walked in and they sat in the balcony of the theater," where they watched Justin Long and Amanda Seyfried perform in one of the six plays. Following the couple's performance, Seyfried and Long joined Jen and Justin in the balcony, where both »
Anything can happen in a day, as evidenced by The 24 Hour Plays on Monday, as actors, writers and directors came together to create six short plays in that time period for an American Airlines Theater performance benefiting Urban Arts Partnership. For example, Justin Long made out with a Justin Long mask, worn by Amanda Seyfried, while Peter Dinklage used Stephen Merchant as a stepstool in Shake It Off by Jonathon Marc Sherman. In the play, Dinklage played Long's emotional father who is obsessed with a fictional self-help book called Shake It Off and finds out that his son's date

It seemed inevitable that Seth MacFarlane was going to star in a movie. After his success with Ted (which he wrote and directed and which made over half a billion worldwide), after hosting both Saturday Night Live and the Oscars, it seemed he wanted to be in front of the camera, no longer just writing and providing voice work for such television shows as Family Guy and American Dad. That shot was A Million Ways to Die in the West, which he also wrote, produced and directed, and it did not have the sort of success that would suggest he’ll get to star in another. The film barely made $40 million domestically, and was roundly panned. The film has its moments, and will probably get a better reputation when it’s viewed with the lowered expectations that come with home viewing, though it’s the definition of indulgent. Co-starring with Charlize Theron and Liam Neeson, »

It landed at the Toronto Int. Film Festival and already had a Nyff playdate in place before A24 films plunked down 4 million on the title. Where does Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young figure in indie distribs’ short or long term plans? Starring Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried, and Charles Grodin, our Jordan M. Smith called the dramedy a “running social portraiture has never been as broadly conventional in his humor,” this doesn’t have a long shelf life and looks like a Spring ’15 item. Conceivably this could go the Locke route, with a Tiff in September showing, followed by a Spotlight section at Sundance in January plan. And if by some film god miracle Baumbach’s other untitled film makes its world premiere, then it would be a fitting double dose from the filmmaker who has only made one appearance at the fest with Directing »

Regularly find yourself rocking out to Taylor Swift songs while you're in the car? Well, this week, so did Taylor Swift. The singer joined BBC Radio 1 DJ Greg James for a drive around London, and as the pair blasted her song "Blank Space," they did their best lip syncing. (Bonus points for all of Taylor's spot-on choreography to match up with the lyrics.) She seemed to be having a blast in the video, and that makes sense - Taylor has a lot to be happy about these days. She covers the Nov. 24 issue of Time magazine, the 1989 album sold almost 1.3 million copies in its first week, and meanwhile she's still making time for her girlfriends, including her latest outing with Kate Upton, Amanda Seyfried, and pal Brittany Mack. Watch the funny lip-sync video above and then check out more viral videos! »
These lovebirds are so cute! Kate Upton and Justin Verlander had a fun date night in New York City last night. After attending the Knicks game alongside famous pals Taylor Swift, Amanda Seyfried and Justin Long, the celeb couple went to grab sushi at Sushi Seki in Manhattan. The pretty pair were dining for nearly two hours, an insider tells E! News, before heading out and getting snapped by paparazzi getting playful. While strolling on the sidewalk, Justin came up from behind gave Kate a huge hug that almost knocked her over, Lol. Luckily, her Detroit Tigers beau was able to catch his girl before she hit the ground. "The two were very playful throughout the night and very affectionate," the »
During last night's New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden in NYC, celeb BFFs Taylor Swift and Amanda Seyfried were caught in the midst of what looked like a very interesting courtside conversation! The funny photo op went down while the two stars were chatting over Seyfried's boyfriend Justin Long, who was sitting in between the blond beauties. Speaking of long, Swift was snapped using her hands to demonstrate the length of something to Seyfried. At one moment, Swift's hands were close together, depicting something small. Then later, her hands were wide apart, demonstrating something much bigger (Lol). While we'll never know just what the friends were talking about, their convo sure »

New Bff alert! Taylor Swift joined celeb pals Amanda Seyfried and Kate Upton for a NY Knicks selfie on Wednesday, Nov. 12, as they cozied up courtside to watch their team play Orlando Magic at Madison Square Garden.

And happy to be amongst a bevvy of basketball-mad blonde bombshells, Swift took [...] »

Mile High Horror Film Festival
Oct. 9-12, 2014
The 5th Annual Mile High Horror Film Festival was a twisted cornucopia of live performance artists, vendors, horror icons, FX artists, shorts, full length features, classics, and live industry panel discussions that drew the most rabid of fans. The repetitious problem of this particular festival is that it is structured in such a way it is impossible to see and do everything, leaving the most enthusiastic of attendees with nagging doubts and fear of “missing something”.
Opening night featured the original 1977 The Hills Have Eyes with all it’s glorious, non-pc dialogue. Original star Michael Berryman (Pluto) provided behind the scenes stories in an engaging Q&A session preceding the screening.
Hosted by The Alamo Draft House, Champion of the Independent Film Genre, Mhhff is growing in attendance every year. With over 80 films from 17 countries, »
The story of a teenager who survives a nuclear war in small town America, the adaptation was originally slated to star Amanda Seyfried who has moved on from the project and been replaced instead by Margot Robbie, of Wolf of Wallstreet fame, as Ann (considering Robbie is a little beyond teenage years, it looks like they've changed this part of the story), Chiwetel Ejiofor as Loomis and Chris Pine.
Release of Z for Zacharia isn't due until next year but we have our first look at the film a [Continued ...] »
I’ll admit I got sucked into the #Hathahate in late 2012 when Anne Hathaway was in the middle of an Oscar campaign for her heart-wrenching performance as Fantine in Les Misérables. From the moment the actress started racking up wins — she’s one of the few people to win an Oscar, Golden Globe, BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild, and Critics Choice for the same role — and making her way from one red carpet to the next TV interview, the haters started to hate, hate, hate. And it was contagious.
By the time Hathaway walked up to the stage at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles to accept her the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a pink Valentino gown with darts over her nipples — a dress she switched into at the last minute following media speculation that she didn’t want to wear a similar Alexander McQueen dress as then »

Not only did we get our Mean Girls reunion, but it came with an important accompanying oral history revealing the importance of pink Ugg boots. Let Lindsay Lohan and Tina Fey explain:fey: I remember 17-year-old Lindsay was on a mission to find pink Uggs. That was, like, what she was working on. And there was one day where she tried to explain to Amy [Poehler] and me her beef with Hilary Duff, but we couldn’t crack it. But we were pretending we could follow it. Lohan: I had been online trying to get pink Uggs because I had a pink pleated skirt in the scene where I fall into the garbage can. I was like, “I need pink Uggs!” I mean, I was rhinestoning my phone at the time with Swarovski crystals. [Laughs] So it was somewhat Method. Other things learned: Lacey Chabert and Amanda Seyfried bonded while listening to »

Ooof, how long has this Mean Girls reunion been coming? I feel like it was almost a lifetime ago when Lindsay Lohan "accidentally" tweeted (and deleted) a selfie of herself and Tina Fey together, prompting wild rumors of a possible Mean Girls sequel. (I, like many, refuse to acknowledge the existence of the straight-to-video Mean Girls 2.) LiLo.s social media stunt only ended up being part of an Entertainment Weekly special reunion issue, but all may not be lost, fellow Plastics sympathisers. In that very EW mag article, Tina Fey, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried and that brunette nobody remembers all talk about a Mean Girls part deux. It.s an interesting conversation between the former stars, but it.s critical to note that Fey absolutely, in no way now or ever wants to do a sequel. At the time, we did wanna start the conversation about the sequel »
It's been a decade since Mean Girls was released, but affection for the film only seems to get stronger with each passing year. Tina Fey has already announced that a stage musical is in development—but could the Plastics ever team up for another big-screen outing? (Paramount did release a straight-to-dvd sequel in 2011.) For our Reunions issue, on stands now, EW asked each actress—as well as Fey—whether they'd want to revisit the Girls. Tina Fey: At the time, we did wanna start the conversation about the sequel and for whatever reason I was like, “No! We shouldn’t do that! »

In honor of its recent 10th anniversary, Entertainment Weekly reunited the cast of "Mean Girls" -- and it was totally fetch.
Tina Fey, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, and Lacey Chabert spoke with the magazine about the casting process, bonding with each other on set, and the movie's quotability, and there were some pretty great revelations during the conversation. Here, we've collected the best bits of trivia from the reunion:
- Lohan originally wanted to play Regina -- and McAdams wanted to play Cady. Fey also initially thought that Lohan would make a good Regina, before director Mark Waters and producer Lorne Michaels stepped in and sorted the girls into the proper roles.
- Lohan proved her teenage girl bonafides on set by obsessing over pink Uggs and discussing her then-intense rivalry with fellow tween queen Hilary Duff. Per EW:
Fey: I remember 17-year-old Lindsay was on a mission to find pink Uggs. »

The cast of Mean Girls have reunited 10 years after the comedy classic's cinema debut.
Fey admitted that there were early plans for a sequel after the success of the film.
"At the time we did want to start the conversation about the sequel, and for whatever reason I was like, 'No! We shouldn't do that!'" she revealed. "Now I look back and I'm like, 'Why?' But now, no - it's too late now."

In 2014, do The Plastics still wear pink on Wednesdays?
The Mean Girls cast is sorry people are so jealous of them. But they can’t help that they’re popular. Which is why, while you were busy geeking out over of Entertainment Weekly’s Ghostbuster reunion, all we care about is our favorite grotzky bitches reuniting 10 years later.
Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, and Mrs. Norbury herself, Tina Fey, shared behind-the-scenes stories from the set with EW (choice sound bite from Fey: “There was one day where [Lindsay] tried to explain to Amy and me her beef with Hilary Duff, but we couldn’t crack it. But we were pretending we could follow it.”) and revealed one of the secrets that makes their hair so big: Where their characters are now.
