It’s no longer even an open secret that celebs don’t pick their own clothes for red carpet events, or any events really. They hire stylists, stylists have relationships with fashion houses, and fashion houses make strategic moves to have them aligned with the stars of the moment.
Take the impressive host of Lebanese designers: Elie Saab who dressed Julia Roberts in a short beaded frock, Nicholas Jebran who dressed Allison Janney in a long red velvet knotted dress and Zuhair Murad who dressed Camila Alves and Taylor Schilling. Some are up and comers, others, established designers, but would those actors have come upon these notable designers without the help of their stylists?
Matthew McConaughey has long been aligned with Dolce & Gabbana, and stuck with the label Monday night in a dashing navy tuxedo that recalled the ones he’s worn at other awards shows. Likewise, Octavia Spencer and Tadashi Shoji continued their relationship, »

The cast of “Orange is the New Black” was out in full force on the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet, but the other attendees were the ones singing the show’s praises. Everyone from “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Andre Braugher to “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner admitted that they were hooked on the Netflix comedy.
Star Uzo Aduba already won her category for Outstanding Guest Actress at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony last week, but told Variety that it only lessened some of the pressure she was feeling tonight, since the rest of the show’s nominations would be announced during the main show. “We are very much a team on our show — it’s still a slightly tense situation, but some of the breath has left my lungs,” she laughed. Aduba admitted that, aside from her castmates, she’s rooting for HBO’s “True Detective” and “The Normal Heart” to sweep their categories, »

The Emmy Awards aren’t till Monday, Aug. 25, but the celebrations start early. Variety will be on hand inside the best parties around Hollywood as the stars mingle, nibble and toast to TV’s finest. Here’s our party report for Saturday, Aug. 23:
11:10 a.m. “Nashville’s” Rayna James is “a woman that we need to see in country music,” says honoree Callie Khouri at the Women Making History Event, presented by the National Women’s History Museum and Glamour Magazine, at the Skirball Center. (She also teases that the “Nashville” premiere is going to feature two live performances in the show.) She thinks it’s incredible to see more women directing TV and as showrunners. “Nashville” boasts a largely female writing staff and women in main storylines.

It was a star-studded evening to remember as the annual Variety and Women in Film pre-Emmy celebration powered by Samsung Galaxy honoring the television nominees was held Saturday night at Gracias Madre on Melrose Avenue.
Partygoers dined on delicious vegan Mexican food and sipped cocktails al fresco sponsored by Crystal Light, and arrived at the party in Mercedes Benz S65 Amg Coupes.
The patio at the hip Mexican eatery on Melrose Avenue was packed with the industry’s biggest names. Laura Prepon was one of the first to arrive. Lizzy Caplan was bombarded with well-wishers predicting her win Monday night. Julianna Margulies and her husband, Keith Lieberthal, chatted with Anne Heche and James Tupper. The cast of “Scandal” — including Kerry Washington, Tony Goldwyn, Bellamy Young, Darby Stanchfield, Jeff Perry, and newly minted Emmy winner Joe Morton — was thrilled to reunite with Dan Bucatinsky, and took several selfies to commemorate the moment. »

Throughout the Mission: Impossible franchise, there have been two constants. The first is Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt, dangling from a thing and looking good doing it. The second is Ving Rhames' Luther Stickell, laughing the laugh of the one man who has survived working with Hunt for more than a decade. And now director Christopher McQuarrie has confirmed that he will return for the upcoming Mission: Impossible 5.Welcome back, Mr. Rhames. cc: @TomCruise @simonpegg @Renner4Real #MI5Diary— ChristopherMcQuarrie (@chrismcquarrie) August 16, 2014There has been no word yet on a plot for the film, or whether it will end up with a Ghost Protocol-style subtitle, but we do know that it will be shooting in Vienna, starting any day now, and in London. Simon Pegg will also be returning as Benji Dunn, and Jeremy Renner as William Brandt. Wallander and Hercules actress Rebecca Ferguson is also set to join them, »
Best friends Judd Apatow and Adam Sandler have a new rivalry to look forward to, as the Funny People pair find their two big summer 2015 releases going head-to-head at the box office. Sony Pictures has decided to move their video game comedy Pixels, starring Sandler, right into the path of Amy Schumer's aptly titled Trainwreck, directed by Apatow.
Originally set for release on May 15, 2015, Pixels is getting pushed further into next summer, now landing on the July 24, 2015 weekend, where it will face not only Amy Schumer's big theatrical debut, but also MGM's Poltergeist remake starring Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt and Jared Harris.
Pixels was originally set to open opposite Mad Max: Fury Road, which earned a lot of buzz coming out of Comic-Con this past July, and the musical comedy Pitch Perfect 2, which comes with a diehard built-in audience of Barden Bella faithfuls.
With a great comedic »
Sony Pictures previously had the video game adventure comedy Pixels set for release on May 15th, 2015. However, the studio has decided to step out of the way of Mad Max: Fury Road (watch the teaser trailer) and the musical sequel Pitch Perfect 2 and set the Adam Sandler-led comedy for release on July 24th, 2015. The film sees intergalactic aliens misinterpreting the video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them and attack the Earth, using the games as models for their various assaults around the world. President Will Cooper (Kevin James) has to call on his childhood best friend, ’80s video game champion Sam Brenner (Sandler), now working as a home theater installer, to help defeat them all. It's up to Brenner to lead a team of old-school arcade gamers (including Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad) to defeat the aliens and save the planet. Michelle Monaghan »

Earlier today, Sony Pictures moved up the release date for its Brad Pitt-fronted WWII drama Fury, but now the studio's Pixels release date is being pushed back. Originally scheduled for May 15, 2015, director Chris Columbus’ action-adventure pic will now open on July 24, 2015. The film stars Adam Sandler and revolves around a group of 80s arcade game champions who are called upon to help defend earth from alien invaders who have misinterpreted our classic arcade games as a declaration of war. The cast includes Josh Gad, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Brian Cox, and a mullet-sporting Peter Dinklage, and while we haven’t seen any footage just yet, it actually sounds like one of the most promising Adam Sandler movies in some time. Hit the jump for more on the film and its new release date. No reason is given for the Pixels release date shift, but the move takes the film »

"I blame you for thinking you knew what was best for me when it was you who was best for me."
A full trailer has been released for the upcoming romantic drama The Best of Me, which stars James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan. The movie is based on a book written by Nicholas Sparks, who is also the author of books such as The Notebook and A Walk to Remember, both of which were adapted into great movies.
I'm normally not a romantic movie kind of guy, but these films that come from the novels Sparks writes kind of hit a chord with me. The Notebook, is easily one of my favorite romantic films. That being said, I'm kind of looking forward to this new film. Hey… it's ok for movie geeks to like a wide variety of movies! The only thing that weirds me out about this movie is »

Relativity Media just released the full trailer for "The Best of Me," which is based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook, Dear John, Safe Haven) and stars James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan. Check it out below. Plot: The story of Dawson and Amanda, two former high school sweethearts who find themselves reunited after 20 years apart, when they return to their small town for the funeral of a beloved friend. 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. The new movie is directed by Michael Hoffman and is set to hit theaters on October 17th. Trailer: »
One of the most common complaints directed toward movie trailers today is that the preview gives away way too much. If you’re interested in catching the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ romance The Best of Me when it comes out on October 17th, you may want to save the spoilers and skip this two-and-a-half minute ad entirely.
The drama, which stars James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan, centers around Dawson Cole and Amanda Collier, two high-school sweethearts who reunite many years later, after Dawson is released from prison. Evoking elements of The Notebook and The Lucky One, both adaptations of Sparks’ bestsellers, The Best of Me shows the problems between the love interests when they were young (and played by the Point Break remake’s Luke Bracey and Trust‘s Liana Liberato) and then what happens when they meet up again years later.

"I blame you for thinking you knew what was best for me when it was you who was best for me." Since the first trailer for the Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Best of Me only gave a tease of the time-spanning romance, the full trailer is here to give the whole movie away. From the young love of Liana Liberato and Luke Bracey (who looks far too old to be in high school) to the rekindled romance 20 years later between their older selves played by James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan. There's kissing in the rain, intense conversations about love lost, and all the Nicholas Sparks hits. It basically shows the whole movie. Here's the full trailer for Michael Hoffman's The Best of Me from the film's YouTube channel: The Best of Me is directed by Michael Hoffman (The Last Station, One Fine Day) and written by J. Millis Goodloe (Pride, »

Author Nicholas Sparks knows what he’s doing. The bestselling scribe has penned seventeen novels, ten of which have been turned into films, two of which will arrive in theaters within the next year. Sparks’ films have pulled in nearly half a billion dollars in just domestic box office returns, making a hell of a bankable brand that appeals to all sorts of studios (Sparks’ films have been produced by a variety of movie studios, from Warner Bros. to Relativity to Sony’s Screen Gems label). Sparks know what’s up. The people who make films based on his novel know what’s up. And, if you’ve ever read even one Sparks book or seen one Sparks movie, you also know what’s up, because these productions tend to look pretty damn similar. There are plenty of hallmarks of Sparks’ work, from a Southern setting to imminent death scenes to lots of yelling in the rain »

I just learned this morning that Paul Walker was apparently supposed to star in the Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Best of Me opposite Michelle Monaghan until his unfortunate passing. The role was then offered to James Marsden who stars as Dawson to Monaghan's Amanda for director Michael Hoffman (The Last Station). Today we have the brand new trailer for the upcoming romance. Amanda and Dawson are two former high school sweethearts who find themselves reunited after 20 years apart, when they return to their small town for the funeral of a beloved friend.

A couple of key new movie trailers today staring with the UK trailer for Adam Wingard's psychological thriller "The Guest". This one's a bit different to the previous domestic trailers, a bit more forthcoming rather than a slow tease.
Then there's the latest trailer for David Cronenberg's "Map to the Stars" which follows a Hollywood family including psychotherapist dad (John Cusack), estranged daughter Agatha (Mia Wasikowska), washed up actress mother (Julianne Moore), and just got out of rehab teen son (Evan Bird). Robert Pattinson plays a limo driver who forms a friendship with Agatha.
Third is the latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation "The Best of Me" which follows Dawson (James Marsden) and Amanda (Michelle Monaghan) who fall in love while growing up but are then kept apart for twenty years after a gun incident.
Finally there's the full trailer for "Atlas Shrugged III: Who is John Galt?," the final »

Nicholas Sparks maintains his consistent spot atop the bestseller list for one simple reason —his formula works. His novels invariably involve an attractive couple driven apart by circumstance followed by a rapprochement reached through great adversity, delivered with the underlying message that love conquers all. That very same template is intact in the latest adaptation of his oeuvre, "The Best Of Me." James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan star in the story of high school sweethearts who find their romance interrupted when Marsden's character is shipped off to jail. Twenty years later, the pair are back in their hometown and reunite thanks to the funeral of a deceased mutual friend. The couple picks up where they left off, but the events from the past come to bear, mean dudes in pick up trucks threaten to ruin everything, etc. But never fear! We have every confidence the golden sunlight and faultless location »

Getting blown up on an oil rig might be the best thing to ever happen to James Marsden in the newest Nicholas Sparks‘ adaptation, “The Best of Me.” The latest trailer for the romantic drama from Relativity shows an explosion tossing Marsden into the ocean, an event which makes him realize how much he misses his first love, played by “True Detective” star Michelle Monaghan. Also read: Jack Black, James Marsden to Star in High School Reunion Comedy ‘The D-Train’ The drama begins two decades earlier when Marsden's younger self (Luke Bracey) first falls for the younger version of the love of his. »
