Will Smith Lets Feelings for Conman Protege Margot Robbie Cost Him ‘Focus’ in Film Trailer (Video)

23 December 2014 9:33 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Every couple has a meet-cute, and it often says a lot about their relationship. So what does it say about Will Smith and Margot Robbie that they met while she was trying to run a con on him in the trailer for “Focus.” The pair star as grifters, with Smith the veteran conman and Robbie the ambitious up-and-comer.

Smith sees something in her and takes her under his wing, but then he breaks one of his cardinal rules. He starts to fall for her. And so he breaks it off.

Margot Robbie Puts a Spell on Will Smith in New Trailer for Con-Man/Woman Drama 'Focus'

22 December 2014 12:55 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

In case you've forgotten, Will Smith is still an actor. It seems like Mister Box Office has been absent from action in front of the camera for a little while, giving way for his son, Jaden Smith, to develop, while also producing for both film and TV. The actor will next be seen in the Warner Bros' con-man/romance "Focus," which centers on an inexperienced female con artist who teams up with a more seasoned male con artist, and sparks fly between them as they go about their con-artist ways. Aussie actress Margot Robbie ("The Wolf of Wall Street"), co-stars alongside Smith, playing the inexperienced female con artist who rocks his »

Leonardo DiCaprio Called ‘Despicable’ in New Sony Emails

13 December 2014 1:59 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s widely known that Leonardo DiCaprio was originally supposed to play Steve Jobs but later passed on the upcoming Aaron Sorkin movie. What isn’t common knowledge: how Amy Pascal and the film’s producer took the news.

“Horrible behavior,” producer Mark Gordon wrote. “Actually despicable,” Pascal corrected him.

According to the stolen emails, published by the Daily Beast on Saturday, Gordon had asked the Sony Pictures co-chairman whether DiCaprio’s decision to pull out of the Apple biopic was based on money or not.

Pascal replied “the latter.”

The role ultimately went to Michael Fassbender (after Christian Bale passed, too) and the movie, which originated at Sony, was eventually picked up by Universal Pictures.

Sony declined to comment on this story.

It’s the latest fallout from a paralyzing cyber-attack against Sony Pictures in recent weeks that has seen employee information, personal emails and unreleased movies hit the Web. »

Tsr Blog: How ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 1′ Loses to the Tyranny of Split Finales

5 December 2014 3:42 PM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

The following contains spoilers for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 1.

If the last five minutes of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire were like clinging to a pole for dear life with one arm and a whole lot of daddy issues this side of The Empire Strikes Back, its followup The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 1 is like watching one trailer for Return of the Jedi over and over and over again, and then being told to wait another year to see what actually happens. With the revolution of Panem actually coming in 2015, the newest addition to the Hunger Games franchise has the ring of the distinctly less-thrilling episode of a TV series, where characters are treated more like chess pieces, being neatly put into place before a big strike … later.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay: Part 1 is a part of a new phenomenon that is bigger than its own franchise, »

Who Is the Suicide Squad? Getting to Know The Cast Of DC’s Newest Superhero Feature

3 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Warner Bros. and DC Comics are coming out swinging, having snagged a pipe dream level cast of names for their upcoming Suicide Squad movie, the kind of talent that, yes, should make Marvel just a little uncomfortable. The studio aimed high for the David Ayer feature, and although rumors have abounded for entire weeks that names like Will Smith, Jared Leto and Margot Robbie would ultimately sign on for the film, we’ll admit it, we were skeptical. Hey, we were wrong, because Warner Bros. has now announced their official cast for the bad-guys-do-good feature, and it’s crammed with top-tier talent, including one of the biggest stars on the planet, an Oscar winner, a bunch of rising stars, and also Jai Courtney (we’re kidding, we like the son of John McClane plenty). But even though everyone knows who Will Smith is, you might still be scratching your head over Robbie or Cara Delevingne or, God »

Jaden Smith Wore a Space Suit to Go See Interstellar

1 December 2014 7:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Finally, the mystery of who shouted "That's my man, Nolan!" while wearing an "authentic-looking space suit" during an opening-week screening of Interstellar has been solved. It was America's Favorite Teen, Jaden Smith! He was spotted by the "spies" at The Hollywood Reporter. Though, to be fair, if you asked us before this leaked, "Which teen would dress up as a spaceman and shout out Chris Nolan at an Interstellar screening?" our first and only answer would've been Jaden Smith. See you in space, buddy! »

That time Jaden and Willow Smith were endearingly normal in a 2010 EW interview

18 November 2014 10:53 AM, PST | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Yes, Monday's much-discussed New York Times' T Magazine Q&A with Jaden and Willow Smith was touted as the siblings' "first-ever joint interview." But in 2010, EW spoke to the siblings Smith, who were named to that year's Entertainers of the Year list in the wake of Jaden's The Karate Kid remake and Willow's "Whip My Hair." Back then, 12-year-old Jaden and 10-year-old Willow were starstruck by other celebrities and just on the cusp of their own respective stardoms. Here are a few nostalgic tidbits, in case you'd forgotten that Jaden and Willow were not always Prana energy-infused holograms spouting diatribes against school and driver's ed. »

The 11 Weirdest Things Willow and Jaden Smith Told 'The NY Times'

18 November 2014 12:17 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Jaden Smith, 16, is almost as well known for his nearly inexplicable tweets as he is for his acting career, while his 14-year-old sister Willow Smith's biggest contribution to the entertainment landscape seems to be the 2010 pop music hit "Whip My Hair."

So, of course, The New York Times Style publication T Magazine felt that this dynamic sibling duo would be just the right people to interview – while overlooking the Pacific Ocean on a chaparral-filled bluff – about all those classic teenage topics such as quantum physics, prana energy and the lucid, often illusive nature of temporal interpretation.

Well, actually, it seems that T Magazine wanted to talk to Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's kids about their music and their creative and collaborative processes. The siblings, however, were much more interested in discussing transcendental meditation.

Warner Bros. eyeing Jaden Smith for Static Shock?

26 October 2014 3:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago it was announced that, as part of a new digital initiative dubbed Blue Ribbon Content, Warner Bros. would be making a live-action Static Shock digital series from Academy Award nominated Django Unchained producer and Boondocks executive producer Reginald Hudlin.

Now we’re getting word that Warner Bros. is already eyeing a young actor to play the electric DC superhero: Jaden Smith. Smith may have a few stinkers like After Earth under his belt, but his parents are already developing a bit of a working relationship with Warner Bros., now that Jada Pinkett Smith is on Gotham and Will Smith is in negotiations for Suicide Squad

The young Smith definitely has his foot in the door at the studio, so I could easily see him landing the part for that reason alone. He was on the rise until M. Night Shyamalan threw a $130 million wrench into his career, »

Are Kendall and Kylie Jenner as influential as Malala Yousafzai?

Really, Time?

Time just released their "The 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014" list, which is raising a few eyebrows to say the least.

Why, exactly?

The publication places Kendall Jenner, 18, and Kylie Jenner, 17, on the list alongside recent Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, 17, and Grammy award-winning Lorde, 17, which unsurprisingly, plenty of people took issue with.
