David Schwimmer and his real-life lobster produced the cutest little critter! The Friends star and wife Zoe Buckman had their 4-year-old daughter, Cleo, with them last night at the John Varvatos 12th Annual Stuart House Benefit—and let's just say, their kid is friggin' adorable. With her head of brown curly hair and blue eyes, Cleo is the spitting image of mom—and yet we see plenty of dad in her smile. The family-friendly event at the John Varvatos boutique in West Hollywood was hosted by honorary chair Chris Pine and raised $957,000 for Stuart House, the UCLA Rape Treatment Center's program for sexually abused children. One of Schwimmer's biggest philanthropic causes over the years has »
Chris Pine hit the red carpet for the John Varvatos Stuart House benefit in La on Sunday. The Into the Woods star looked as hot as ever while posing for photos on the red carpet with John Varvatos himself, as well as Ziggy Marley and his family - Chris had an especially sweet interaction with the reggae singer's son Gideon when he leaned down to let him adorably whisper something in his ear. In addition to walking the red carpet, Chris also served as honorary chair of the event; the annual fundraiser is in its 12th year and benefits the Stuart House, a program of the Rape Treatment Center at UCLA's Medical Center. Ziggy was on hand to perform - he currently stars in the menswear designer's Spring 2015 ad campaign - and the event also brought out Rachel Zoe, Zach Braff, and LL Cool J. We've seen a lot of Chris so far this year, »

Growing up, Chris Pine frequently visited his grandmother Anne Gwynne — one of the first iconic "scream queens," known for her work opposite horror maestros like Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi — at the Motion Picture & Television Fund's Country House and Hospital. "By that time she'd had a stroke and was so compromised physically that any sense of freedom, she enjoyed to no end," says Pine. "We would take her along the paths lined with

Wednesday (April 22) night's "American Idol" theme is Arena Anthems, which is relatively meaningless both because it's a relatively meaningless designation, but also because I'm not sure that "arenas" are in the future for this season's Top 6. And that's not me being bitter that the patently unfair "Idol" Save sent Joey Cook packing last week, because as much as I appreciated Joey's distinctiveness, this wasn't going to be a great theme for her either. But if Rayvon Owen is in the Bottom 2 again and he's saved by the "Idol" Save again, it'd be nice to get somebody from "Idol" to admit that they basically screwed up the entire season with this elimination twist. Let's see what's in store! 8:00 p.m. So they start tonight's show by reminding us about the Quentin Alexander unpleasantness from last week. I'd forgotten that was a thing. Presumably it will impact Quentin's voting results. Or maybe it won't? »

According to fansite TrekMovie.com, which has a solid track record when it comes to Star Trek, the upcoming third movie in Paramount Pictures’ relaunched series is going by the title of Star Trek Beyond.
According to the site, Star Trek Beyond has been registered with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), although the report does go on to state that it could be a decoy title, given Bad Robot’s penchant for secrecy.
Little is known about the plot for Star Trek 3, although Simon Pegg – who is co-writing the script, as well as reprising the role of Soctty – has previously stated that it will have “the spirit of the TV show”, and an increased emphasis on exploration.
Meanwhile, speaking to MTV, Pegg has also confirmed that Idris Elba is set for a “kick-ass” role, stating that: “It will be [an original character]. This is the five-year mission now, we’re out there. »

According to TrekMovie, the studio recently registered the title with the Motion Picture Association of America, making it all but an imminent press release away from being officially announced.
As has been rumoured for months, the third Star Trek film is expected to see the Enterprise crew on an exploration into deep space, living up to the show’s original mantra of adventures “Where no man has gone before”.
“Where no man has gone before – where no one has gone before, sensibly corrected for a slighter more enlightened generation. But yeah, that’s the mood at the moment.”
As was reported earlier in the year, Idris Elba will play the key villain in the movie. We »

After a protracted development period, Star Trek 3 is finally moving full steam ahead, with Fast Five helmer Justin Lin behind the camera and series star Simon Pegg penning the script alongside Doug Jung, and today brings a possible title for the anticipated threequel.
According to TrekMovie.com (via /Film), it’s likely that the film, which will see the crew of the starship Enterprise into the deeper reaches of space on a five-year mission of exploration and discovery, is titled Star Trek Beyond. The site purportedly “has it on good authority” that the title is legitimate and has learned that Star Trek Beyond has been registered with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), a typical step that a studio takes once a title has been locked in.
It is worth noting that Bad Robot has quite a history of misleading audiences with regard to the content of its films (anyone remember this? »

It sounds like the crew of the USS Enterprise may boldly go where no man has gone before in next year's Star Trek sequel.
It looks like Star Trek 3 might have an official title. According to TrekMovie.com, the upcoming film will likely be called Star Trek Beyond. Apparently that’s the title that’s been registered with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), but the outlet also notes that we know how J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot operate. It’s possible that this could be a decoy title to throw fans off. However, the title Star Trek Beyond does make sense considering co-writer Simon Pegg has teased that the new film is about frontierism and also told Den of Geek the following: “So for me it's now about the spirit of adventure and exploration and also, in modern terms, just how would that be for people, to be away for that amount of time and that kind of stuff.” Director Justin Lin is expected to start filming Star Trek 3 (or »

It’s been two years since the last Star Trek outing arrived in cinemas, and pre-production is now in full swing on the threequel. Star Trek 3 is slated to begin principal photography this June and has a sterling batch of creatives steering this one to the big screen. With J.J. Abrams busy tweaking the details on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Fast & Furious veteran Justin Lin is directing from a script by Simon Pegg and Doug Jung. And now thanks to a new interview with MTV (via Collider), Pegg has opened up on precisely what’s in store for the sequel.
Addressing the topic of Idris Elba’s supposed appointment as the film’s villain, Pegg affirmed that the actor is indeed set to appear. But it won’t be anyone you’re likely to have heard of:
“It will be [an original character], yes. This is the five-year mission now, »

The Chrises of Hollywood - Pratt, Pine, Evans, Hemsworth, and Rock- have been making a name for themselves both on and off screen lately. Pals Chris Evans and Chris Pratt had a memorable Super Bowl bet that led to them wearing their superhero costumes while visiting sick children in hospitals. Meanwhile, Chris Hemsworth proved he can rock a mullet and still be one of People's sexist men alive. And who can forget Chris Pine's viral cry at the 2015 Oscars? Finally, Chris Rock has been making headlines for his thought-provoking comments on racism following the December 2014 release of Top Five. It's clear the Chrises are reigning supreme - just look at why it's a good time to be a Chris in Hollywood - but which guy is your favorite? Vote below! »
While some filmmakers only find out the night before, Cannes Film Festival’s Thierry Frémaux informed Denis Villeneuve that he’d be part of the Main Comp mix almost three weeks back. Having been on the Croisette before with his debut film Un 32 août sur Terrre (Un Certain Regard), and the Directors’ Fortnight was home for his epic short Next Floor and sobering Polytechnique, the Quebecois helmer saw his critically lauded Incendies and Enemy receive a pass from the fest, but it was this work that ultimately convinced backers with deep pockets to have the auteur filmmaker move onto large-scale productions (Prisoners, Story of Us, the Blade Runner sequel), and in turn Sicario is now among the hopefuls for the Palme d’Or.
The film’s Canadian distributor Entertainment One hosted a press conference the morning of the Cannes announcement and we learned that the filmmaker (who is one degree »

DreamWorks Animation has changed the Kung Fu Panda 3 released date from March 18, 2016 to January 29, 2016. This will put the animated sequel up against the drama The Finest Hours starring Chris Pine, the Ya film The 5th Wave, and an untitled horror film from New Line Cinema. It wouldn’t shock me if Kung Fu Panda 3 ended up winning the weekend since the first two movies have raked in $1.3 billion worldwide. People love animals that know karate. DreamWorks Animation also needs a hit. The company has been sliding over the past few years (people have finally caught on that their films are largely lazy and forgettable), and Kung Fu Panda is a solid franchise for the studio. Jack Black will return as the voice of Po in the film, and the rest of the voice cast includes Gary Oldman, Dustin Hoffman, David Cross, Angelina Jolie, Michelle Yeoh, Mads Mikkelsen, Danny McBride, »

“Kung Fu Panda 3” is on the move again. DreamWorks Animation and distributor 20th Century Fox have shifted the 3D sequel up two months — to Jan. 29, 2016 from March 18, 2016. The third installment in the powerhouse family franchise was originally set for release on Dec. 23 of this year, but was pushed after the release of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” was set for Dec. 18, one week earlier. Sony’s “The 5th Wave,” starring Chloe Grace Moretz, and “The Finest Hours,” a Coast Guard drama starring Chris Pine from Disney, will be the competition on the new date for “Kung Fu Panda »

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.
From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.
Grab your calendar, because Wamg has a rundown of this summer’s films we’re most excited about, so check them out below! »
