Orlando Bloom isn't letting his recent split from Katy Perry get in the way of a good time.

On Thursday, the 40-year-old actor posted a few videos to his Instagram story of himself and his 6-year-old son, Flynn, riding a roller coaster. Bloom also snapped a selfie during his father-son day out, and captioned the pic: "A six-year-old will remind you of all the important things in life."

Perry liked the pic, thus further proving that the two are remaining amicable following their breakup. In another video on his Instagram story, Bloom even appears to be playing with the 32-year-old pop star's dog Nugget.

Katy Perry Jokes That She's Searching for 'Real Friends' After Posing With Food in Her Teeth

6 March 2017 5:45 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Katy Perry wasn't exactly camera ready when she hit the red carpet on Sunday night for the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards.

While she slayed in a gold-and-white August Getty Atelier jumpsuit, the 32-year-old pop star smiled big for cameras without realizing that she had some food in her teeth. "Currently taking applications for real friends who aren't afraid to tell me there's quinoa in my teeth," Perry jokingly captioned a pic on Instagram of her mouth.

The "Roar" singer brushed off the slightly embarrassing moment, and hit the awards show stage to sing her "Chained to the Rhythm" song with Skip Marley. "Bout to shimmy in @stellamccartney for the #iHeartAwards," she posted ahead of the performance, along with a gif of her dancing in the all-red ensemble.

3 March 2017 4:53 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

There's something special about the new horror movie Xx. Not only is it an anthology, featuring four completely different and terrifying short films, but it also boasts four fantastic female directors. Karyn Kusama handled a disturbing secret in The Box, a celebration takes a dark turn in The Birthday Party by Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent), Roxanne Benjamin hones in on a camping trip gone wrong in Don't Fall, and Jovanka Vuckovic deals with the devil in Her Only Living Son.

‘Krisha’ Sweeps the Inaugural American Independent Film Awards

19 February 2017 6:20 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

As the definition of an independent film has shifted with the ever-expanding budget divide in American filmmaking — particularly Hollywood cutting back on its mid-range projects — when it comes time for awards season, it’s often only the highest profile of “indie films” that get recognized. While we do our best to recognize the films that often get unfortunately, a new awards has launched that honors the best of truly independent American cinema, featuring films all under a $1 million budget.

Aptly titled the American Independent Film Awards (aka AIFAs), they were voted on by international film festival programmers, U.S. based film festival programmers, and North American film critics (including yours truly.) “First and foremost, we would like to thank all film producers and distribution companies who helped us identify qualifying films and outline the categories. We’d also like to thank the international and American based film festival programmers, and »

New to Streaming: ‘Moonlight,’ ‘Allied,’ ‘Fire at Sea,’ ‘Doctor Strange,’ and More

17 February 2017 10:50 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Allied (Robert Zemeckis)

That thing we can’t take for granted: a film whose many parts – period piece, war picture, blood-spattered actioner, deception-fueled espionage thriller, sexy romance, and, at certain turns, comedy – can gracefully move in conjunction and separate from each other, just as its labyrinthine-but-not-quite plot jumps from one setpiece to the next with little trouble in maintaining a consistency of overall pleasure. Another late-career triumph for Robert Zemeckis, »

Xx movie review: women filmmakers bring a feminine bent to horror

16 February 2017 4:49 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… My anger that women filmmakers doing a horror anthology is seen as a novelty almost overshadows my disappointment that these short films aren’t very scary. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for movies by and about women

I’m “biast” (con): I’m not much of a horror fan

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I’m looking forward to the time when the work of four women filmmakers coming together in a horror anthology is not considered a novelty, but we do not live in that world yet. So that is the motif that connects the segments of Xx: they were written and directed by women. (Imagine how ridiculous it would be to try to sell an anthology on the fact that all the segments were made by men!) I’m always glad to see women filmmakers working, »

Exclusive: An Oral History of 'Xx,' the Horror Anthology With a Killer Feminist Agenda

16 February 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

If the saying "no guts, no glory" holds true, then there's a serious discrepancy happening in the world of horror. Though women -- your scream queens, your final girls -- have so often offered up their guts to genre films, men are still predominately pulling the strings behind the scenes. That's not the case with Xx, a horror anthology featuring four killer tales by four female directors: Annie Clark (aka rocker St. Vincent, making her directorial debut), Jovanka Vuckovic, Karyn Kusama and Roxanne Benjamin. The story of how Xx came to be -- and how it hopes to upend the horror industry -- is best told by the women behind it.

Magnet Releasing

A director and student of horror maestro Guillermo del Toro, Vuckovic conceived Xx after noticing that despite the horror anthology's extensive history, female creatives have been virtually absent. She partnered with producer Todd Brown of Xyz Films to change that.

Review: ‘Xx’ Offers More than the Average Horror Anthology

16 February 2017 11:58 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

To begin, we must acknowledge a painful fact: omnibus features are only as strong as their weakest link, and it’s clear that production company Xyz Films learned from its past. Xx, thankfully better than the company’s recent Holidays, features four female-directed psychological horror shorts that in large part take on motherhood, domestic life, and parenting. Perhaps it should have stopped there, with two strong stand-outs (Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, with The Birthday Party, and Karyn Kusama’s Her Only Living Son), the decent The Box (by Jovanka Vuckovic), and the weak link, Roxanne Benjamin’s Don’t Fall. It was as if the best three followed a carefully prescribed assignment; Don’t Fall attempts to jam a feature’s worth of suspense into a short that needed a lot more build-up. Also at odds with the tone is Sofia Carrillo’s beautiful, gothic interstitials of cracked porcelain »

Xx Review

15 February 2017 12:49 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Xx – an all-female directed horror anthology – couldn’t push against genre representation at a better time. You’d think those involved would come out fiery, focused and full of appropriate rage given current gender voicelessness. This was a chance for horror to champion female filmmakers, yet assertions are tepid at best. Even past the failed settling of gender scores, Xx lacks horror establishment of the basest engagement. Only one chapter stands out (victorious because of competition), while three more efforts drag their feet without enthusiasm. No statement is made, no mic is dropped and no lasting message lingers past the credits. Enjoy another mixed bag of spooky stories that do no bumping in any night.

Please note, such disinterest isn’t because my feeble male brain can’t comprehend a different perspective. Three of the four main characters are mothers, all caught in family dilemmas. That’s not where my disconnection stems. »

Film Review: ‘Xx’

15 February 2017 6:28 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Great horror cinema is so often about playing the long game, waiting out the slow burn, that it can be tricky to achieve in short form: A 20-minute runtime affords even the deftest filmmaker precious little room to nurture intrigue, ramp up tension and deliver a bone-deep payoff. Four talented female filmmakers give it their best shot in the polished portmanteau pic “Xx,” with predictably mixed results — though it says much about the difficulty of the proposal in the first place that the most satisfying entry in the quartet isn’t really a horror film at all. That’d be the comically antic contribution by cooler-than-thou musician-turned-filmmaker Annie Clark (better known in the media as St. Vincent), whose auspicious directorial presence alone adds a coat of cult potential to the project. Meanwhile, more experienced hands Karyn Kusama, Roxanne Benjamin and Jovanka Vuckovic turn in more traditional chillers in a range of registers, »

Grammys 2017: Jennifer Lopez Still Isn’t Over That Infamous Versace Grammys Dress Either

12 February 2017 6:14 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Jennifer Lopez has had a long, illustrious music career, beginning back in 1999 with her first hit song, the instant classic “If You Had My Love.” And ever since then she’s been a non-stop, one-woman hit making machine. But even this deep into her smash-hit, record-breaking pop legacy, Lopez still remembers what it felt like to be a newbie in showbiz, something she reminisced over at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards  – particularly when it comes to a certain infamous dress of hers that has become burned into the pop culture memory.

Guy Has Bob Ross Birthday Party Where Everyone Paints Landscapes

Bob Ross is hands down one of the best television personalities of the last 100 years.  The late painter was one of the most soothing and relaxing voices to ever air on PBS.    He made you believe that with a little burnt sienna that you could make a masterpiece forest having zero artistic ability whatsoever.  So when there’s Bob Ross news out there, you can be sure I’m reporting about it.   Lately people have been completely obsessed with some guy who threw a Bob Ross themed birthday party where everyone had to make their own landscapes.
