Austin - It was smack dab in the middle of last year's SXSW festival that "Veronica Mars" made news with their massively successful Kickstarter campaign, so it seems only right that they would bring the film to premiere at the festival this year. As someone who enjoyed the show enormously while it was on the air, I am relieved to report that the film felt to me like it successfully recaptured the spirit of the show's first season. My only question at this point is how it will work for audiences who didn't see the show, which, based on the ratings, would seem to be pretty much everyone. In the series, Veronica was a typical 15-year-old girl living in Neptune, California, a small community with a pronounced class struggle going on, until her best friend Lilly Kane (Amanda Seyfried) was murdered. Veronica's father Keith (Enrico Colantoni) was Neptune's sheriff, and »

First, the bad news: Veronica Mars, the whip-smart young sleuth played to wisecracking perfection by Kristen Bell, doesn’t get a case particularly worthy of her talents in this long-anticipated bigscreen reincarnation of the CW’s critically beloved, perpetually low-rated detective series. The good or at least so-so news: It likely won’t matter much to the show’s fans, 91,585 of whom contributed $5.7 million to a record-setting Kickstarter campaign that ultimately persuaded Warners to greenlight the project. For these die-hard cultists, even the most generically conceived whodunit would be reason enough for a return trip to Neptune, Calif., that sun-drenched neo-noir hellhole where toxic celebrity worship, police corruption and the ever-present traumas of high school continue to hold sway, a full decade after Veronica left town and swore never to look back.
Ever since the show’s unceremonious, bitterly mourned cancellation in 2007, creator Rob Thomas has been trying to get »

If Amanda Seyfried wanted to "Fly the Friendly Skies," she should have gone with United Airlines. The actress reportedly threw a fit after landing at Los Angeles International Airport Wednesday. "How the f--k did you know I'd be on this flight?" the movie star asked fans and paparazzi waiting at her gate, according to The New York Daily News. The Ted 2 star allegedly shouted, "I hate American Airlines!" Seyfried allegedly continued to vent her frustrations, yelling, "They always tip people off on where celebrities are going to be...Their customer service is so poor. They don't even have a greeter for me." She later tweeted, "Quiz: Which airline hires sweaty robot »

Director: Craig Zobel
Writers: Pall Grimson, Nissar Modi
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Scheduled to begin filming in New Zealand earlier this year, this is Craig Zobel’s hotly anticipated follow-up to his 2012 breakout film, Compliance. With several notable names among the cast, particularly Chiwetel Ejiofor, we’re assuming this will likely get a lot of attention. Based on the vintage novel from Robert O’Brien (who also wrote the novel upon which The Secret of Nimh is based), we’re curious to see what Zobel brings to the youth-skewed apocalypse genre.
Gist: Based on the novel by Robert C. O’Brien, this is about a sixteen-year-old girl named Ann Burden survives a nuclear war in a small American town.
Release Date: Considering its cast members, we’re assuming this »

Kunis sparked rumors of an engagement on Thursday when she was photographed wearing a decent sized diamond ring on her ring finger. Sources close to the famous couple confirmed the engagement to E! News.
Kunis and Kutcher have known each other for years, ever since they stared together as young love birds Jackie and Kelso in That ‘70s Show, which premiered in 1998. They did not begin dating in real life until 2012, after Kutcher split from his ex-wife, Demi Moore and Kunis had separated from her long-term boyfriend, Macaulay Culkin.
Kunis and Kutcher have yet to confirm or deny the report. The duo has been rumored to be engaged for quite some time. Most recently, it was believed that Kunis and Kutcher were engaged after Kunis was photographed wearing a skinny, gold band on her ring finger in September 2013.
If the couple is indeed engaged, »

Scripted by Brad Desch, the film details “the bond between a father and daughter living in New York.” The story will move between the 1980s and present day as it follows Jake Davis (Crowe), a famous writer and widower who “struggles with mental illness” as he tries to raise his 5-year-old daughter Katie.
Growing up with a troubled childhood, Katie (Amanda Seyfried) eventually has demons of her own that she has to deal with when she’s older and that’s what the present day portion of the story focuses on.

Movie News - Amanda Seyfried will star in 'Ted 2' and it appears Mila Kunis won't be in the new film or will have a minimal role in the sequel. The actress has been cast as the girlfriend of lead character John Bennett, played by Mark Wahlberg. The same role was taken by Mila Kunis in the first film - which saw her character, Lori, marry John at the end - but she will only have a small role, or will not appear at all in the sequel, according to Deadline.com. The reason for the change of female lead has been put down to a creative decision by Seth MacFarlane, the movie's creator, who will produce, write and co-star in the sequel as the titular character, a foul-mouthed teddy bear who has been brought to life by John. 'Les Miserables' star Amanda has previously said she will »
God, they are really using the success of Ted to promote Seth McFarlane's latest feature, A Million Ways to Die in the West, aren't they? The foul mouthed teddy bear even makes an appearance on the latest poster for the western comedy, which also highlights how much McFarlane doesn't look like a cowboy. Judging by the red band trailer, I have the feeling the movie can survive on its own, without its Ted connection, but we'll wait and see. via Universal Released: May 30th USA / June 6th Ireland & UK Synopsis: A cowardly farmer seeks the help of a gunslinger's wife to help him win back the woman who left him.Seth Macfarlane co-writes, directs, produces and stars in the movie alongside Oscar®winner Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Giovanni Ribisi, Sarah Silverman andNeil Patrick Harris. »
