Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »

A poignant zombie drama starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin (which was originally scheduled to premiere at last year's Tiff), a mutated wasps creature feature co-starring Lance Henriksen and Clifton Collins Jr., and Adrián García Bogliano's darkly humorous kidnapping tale are just a few films on the onscreen scare slate for the 14th Annual Tribeca Film Festival.

The story is based on the 1902 novel by George Barr McCutcheon that was adapted into a play in 1906 and made into films 10 times — including a lost 1914 release directed by Cecil B. DeMille at the start of his career.
Producers of the new “Brewster’s Millions” are Joseph and Jack Nasser. The adaptation was written by Michael William Schmidt and follows Monty Brewster, who is set to inherit $1 billion – with one key caveat: He must spend $100 million in one week or end up with nothing more than the clothes on his back.
Apa will handle domestic sales of the film.

Upon hearing that Arnold Schwarzenegger is starring in an upcoming zombie film, the first image to come to mind might be of the iconic action actor taking on hordes of zombies with the tool shed arsenal from Commando or the firepower of Predator, but Maggie looks to be a more intimate and dramatic entry to the living dead sub-genre, aiming for emotion over entrails (though there definitely could be some of the latter).
The feature film debut from Henry Hobson, Maggie stars Schwarzenegger as a father clinging to the draining humanity of his infected daughter (Abigail Breslin), and we now know when Lionsgate affiliate Roadside Attractions will release the film to theaters.
According to Box Office Mojo, Maggie will come out in theaters on May 8th from Roadside Attractions. Directed by Hobson off a Black List script by John Scott 3, Maggie stars Schwarzenegger, Breslin, and Joely Richardson.

“Little Miss Sunshine” is shining even brighter in 2015, thanks to a new ‘do! Abigail Breslin said goodbye to her long wavy blonde hair this week, as she showed up to Zac Posen’s New York Fashion Week show rocking a much shorter haircut. The former child star celebrates her 19th birthday in April – and we absolutely love this more mature look on her. It’s cute but still rebellious and her bold red lipstick definitely shows some sass. The actress recently opened up about her personal style and more adult fashion sense. "I don’t make these conscious decisions to do it to, like, prove to the world that I’m grown up. I think people see my work and see what I do and see that I’m grown up … I do want to try different things, but it’s all for fun,” she told E!. What do you think of Abigail's new cut? »

Another blond's gone bob! Abigail Breslin was spotted with newly cropped locks at Grand Central Terminal on Feb. 16 for Zac Posen's fall-winter 2015 runway show, and we gotta say that the star's tousled face-framing look fits her well. Abigail paired her rocker-chic cut with dark winged liner and a bright red lip, not to mention a cool (and very New York) all-black ensemble. The 18-year-old actress' shorter, more adult hair fits in line with her latest role: Breslin will be starring in Ryan Murphy's new horror series (this one is for Fox), Scream Queens, which is set to debut next fall. (A teaser was released this past Friday—the 13th, of course.) At the Posen show, Abigail was »

Pop goes the… victim?
