The 27-year-old Twilight actress stars in the upcoming indie film The Shangri-La Suite as Priscilla Presley, alongside Ron Livingston, who plays the late King of Rock 'n' Roll.

Actors playing real people have really been nailing it lately. First, there was Dane DeHaan as James Dean, and now Ron Livingston is taking on the role of Elvis Presley for The Shangri-La Suite. And he's not doing the most glam version of the King, he's doing what's colloquially referred to as "fat Elvis." The movie is about a man (Luke Grimes) who sets out to kill Elvis in 1974 (when he was at the height of his Las Vegas fame), and Ashley Greene - whom you can also see here - plays Priscilla Presley. These are must-see pictures, people. View Slideshow › »

Each year as the Oscar ceremony comes to a close, the after parties are just gearing up as Hollywood luminaries celebrate the official end of the awards season. First stop is always the Governors Ball, which is held in a ballroom a few escalator rides away from the Dolby Theatre.
Guests moved around a garden-like setting that Jeffrey Kurland and event producer Cheryl Cecchetto created to allow a flow of people since the priorities are schmoozing and eating, in that order. Another high priority: listening to the music of John Legend.
The “12 Years a Slave” and Fox Searchlight teams, under co-presidents Stephen Gilula and Nancy Utley, celebrated their big wins with a mixture of joy and relief, with all paying tribute to Steve McQueen. “It’s thrilling to be recognized in such a great year with so many terrific movies,” Gilula told Variety. “It’s great art and great entertainment, »

Braff has written, directed and starred in the film about a struggling actor trying to find happiness for his family at the age of 35.
Wish I Was Here was financed as a result of a Kickstarter campaign, that proved to be controversial online due to Braff's status as a Hollywood star.
Focus Features purchased the rights to release the movie for $2.75 million (£1.67 million) at the Sundance Film Festival.
Wish I Was Here is slated to open on July 18 in New York and Los Angeles, with a wider release in the Us starting on July 25.
Briefly: After premiering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, Focus Features has slated Zach Braff's sophomore directing effort Wish I Was Here to hit theaters in New York and Los Angeles on July 18th, and will expand to other theaters on August 1st. That means the film will arrive nearly 10 years exactly after Garden State arrived. Kickstarter supporters will get advanced screenings in their local markets as well. Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Josh Gad, Ashley Greene, Joey King and Pierce Gagnon also star in the film, which I wasn't all that impressed by at Sundance, but fans can judge for themselves. »

A couple of release dates have been announced. First up, Zach Braff’s long-awaited Garden State follow-up Wish I Was Here will open in limited release this summer on July 18th, after which it will be expanding into 20 cities on July 25th and even more cities on August 1st. Braff co-wrote, directed, and stars in the film as a struggling actor, father, and husband who is seeking purpose in life and trying to come to terms with the impending death of his father (Mandy Patinkin). I caught the film at its Sundance debut and was rather disappointed. While it’s quite funny and features some really solid and interesting moments, it also has a fair share of scenes that simply do not work and stop the film cold. That said, Kate Hudson turns in her best performance since Almost Famous as Braff’s supportive wife. Josh Gad, Ashley Greene, and Joey King also star. »

Kevin James is about to get his game on in the upcoming "Pixels." The comedy star is in talks to appear opposite "Frozen" co-star Josh Gad in the Sony comedy from director Chris Columbus ("Home Alone," the first two "Harry Potter" films), according to Deadline. "Pixels" finds Earth under attack by videogame-obsessed aliens, who stage giant-sized re-enactments of ’80s games. In a twist that recalls an episode of "Futurama," it's up to four human gamers to save the world. It's based on a 2010 French animated short film written and directed by Patrick Jean, which featured iconography from such arcade classics as "Space Invaders," "Pac-Man," "Donkey Kong," and more. Frequent James collaborator Adam Sandler will produce along with his Happy Madison partner Jack Giarraputo. Tim Herlihy and Tim Dowling wrote the script.

The Twilight Saga may have been a shamefully terrible chapter in teen-targeted cinema, but the series did act as a launch-pad for multiple actors and actresses, most notably Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed. Greene has demonstrated considerable acting talent in projects like Cbgb and ABC’s short-lived Pan Am, while Reed was one of the best parts of recent action fare like Catch .44 and Empire State. Greene already made her bid to become a Hollywood scream queen with 2012 flop The Apparition, and now, it’s Reed’s chance. The actress has just signed on to topline a Singapore-set horror film called Email, which will start shooting on location in Singapore this May.
Singaporean director Kelvin Tong will helm the flick for Spj Enterprises, a production company also based out of Singapore. Tong previously directed The Maid, which was widely considered to be one of the country’s first horror »
