20 September 2012 4:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Sarah Silverman is determined to get out the vote, and has produced a very funny -- and very dirty -- informational video to do so.  "Hey black people, old people, poor people and students," the comedian says. "Lawmakers are trying to f--- you in your a--holes." Silverman then goes about explaining how certain "voter fraud"-targeting reforms championed by the Republican party are actually implemented to make it harder for potential Obama voters to get to the polls.

Roman Polanski is taking on Broadway. While he may not be able to travel to New York City without fear of being arrested, the "Carnage" director has nevertheless signed on to direct an adaptation of David Ives' Tony-nominated play "Venus in Fur," which he will shoot in France with stars Emmanuelle Seigner (also Polanski's wife) and Louis Garrel ("The Dreamers"). “I’ve been looking for a chance to make a film in French with Emmanuelle for a long time,” said Polanski in a statement. “Reading 'Venus in Fur' I realized the moment had arrived.

20 September 2012 4:20 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Here's a video that will likely leave many diehard James Bond fans shaken and stirred. In a new commercial for the upcoming James Bond film "Skyfall" -- and Heineken --  Daniel Craig dons the tuxedo to plug the Dutch beer company. Even though, as everyone knows, 007 is a martini man, when he isn't busy saving civilization from power-mad bad guys or bedding down his latest conquest. Craig defended "Skyfall"'s sponsorship deal with Heineken back in May, telling Moviefone that the agreement was a financial necessity. "We have relationships with a number of companies »

The Saturday Night Live star was on hand to oversee the nuptials of The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney and his girlfriend Emily Ward on Saturday during a backyard ceremony in Nashville, Tenn.

'Dredd 3D' Writer-Producer Calls it 'Essentially a British Independent Movie' (Video)

20 September 2012 4:03 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Dredd 3D, Lionsgate's ultra-violent adaptation of the British comic hero, is currently dominating the U.K. box office and is poised to do the same when it opens domestically on Friday. But for those whose only associations with the title character are from the critically reviled 1995 film version starring Sylvester Stallone, producer and writer Alex Garland tells The Hollywood Reporter they should prepare to be pleasantly surprised.

Watch Britney Spears's Wild Reaction to Lightning Strike

20 September 2012 4:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

On The X Factor Wednesday, Britney Spears was cool and composed as she sweetly sang "Happy Birthday" to fellow judge L.A. Reid. But on Thursday's show, the pop star loses her cool - when lighting strikes. In a clip of the episode, Spears reacts by screaming multiple times, making a wacky face - and swearing - when lightning strikes and thunder booms during auditions in Greensboro, N.C. "Are you okay?" asks a giggling Demi Lovato, who doesn't seem too concerned about the weather. "Oh my god!" says Spears, "That [expletive] is scary as [expletive]." "I spit all over you, »

Tim Tebow: I Want a Family with Someone 'Sweet and Kind'

What is Tim Tebow, one of the NFL's most eligible bachelors, looking for in a girlfriend? Someone who's kind and humble and, yes, beautiful - but on the inside as well as the outside. "Obviously looks play a big part. Being attracted to someone plays a big part, but there's also so much more than that for me," the New York Jets quarterback, 25, tells Vogue in its October issue. (See video of the photo shoot.) "It's about finding someone sweet and kind - and that has a servant's heart." Photos: Tim Tebow in 10 Hot ShotsThat latter phrase comes from the »

Steven Spielberg to close AFI Fest for a second year in a row with the premiere of 'Lincoln'

20 September 2012 3:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Well, I pretty much nailed this likelihood in a tweet on Tuesday. With very little left to choose from in the way of North American premieres, what with Nyff really diving in big this year on that front and Telluride and Toronto taking their fair share as usual, it seemed like Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" would be a good fit for AFI Fest. And so it shall be. The November festival always has one or two premieres every year, and last year, one of them was a Spielberg film -- "The Adventures of Tintin" (which closed the fest while Clint Eastwood's "J. Edgar" opened it). He'll be back for more in »

Justin Timberlake talks about turning blue for 'Trouble with the Curve'

20 September 2012 3:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For "Saturday Night Live" fans, Justin Timberlake's finest comedic moments may have come in that Emmy-winning video in which he bears a very, um, special gift tied with a bow ("Dick in a Box"). But for those who are more interested in seeing his subtle side, "Trouble with the Curve" features Timberlake as Johnny "The Flame" Flanagan, a former big league pitcher who fantasizes about becoming a sports announcer. He's also paired up with two major league talents -- three-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams as buttoned-up lawyer Mickey, and Clint Eastwood's aging, cranky baseball scout Gus. Still, despite Timberlake's credentials, the job »

Jennifer Lawrence Heats 'House at the End of the Street' at Box Office

This weekend will provide a heat check for Jennifer Lawrence, the young star of "House at the End of the Street," the thriller expected to challenge for the top spot at the box office. If the low-budget PG-13 movie from Relativity delivers, and industry analysts say it will compete for the top spot with Clint Eastwood's  "Trouble With the Curve," it will surely increase the buzz surrounding Lawrence -- and that's saying something. In January, Relativity shifted the original release from April 20, ostensibly to avoid a crowded schedule. But there will »

Michael Des Barres: Following the Dream of Rock Stardom Is Like Joining an Army Perpetually at War

20 September 2012 3:39 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

As middle age circumnavigates the midriff of yesterday's riff masters, I began to look into the untimely demise of our former heroes and heroines of rock and roll. Some deified, some forgotten. "It's better to burn out than fade away," said Neil Young. "I hope I die before I get old," wrote Pete Townshend. Well, not all his dreams came true. Thank God. However, we do not mourn for everyone of the rock 'n' roll community who prematurely met their maker, then becoming label-mates of the heavenly record company in the sky. (The »

TLC Defends Fake-Seeming Breaking Amish

20 September 2012 3:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

TLC's Breaking Amish seemed pretty phony from the get-go, and now the network and the show's production company have released a joint statement defending the show. "There is a lot of information floating around about the group featured on Breaking Amish. Much of it is not true, but some of it is — and is addressed in upcoming episodes," TLC and Hot Snakes told Variety. Among the information "floating around"? It appears Jeremiah has not been Amish for a really long time and that Abe and Rebecca, who are presented as strangers on the show, are actually a couple. Isn't anything sacred anymore, reality TV? »

Revisiting Michael Jackson's 'Bad' 25 years later

20 September 2012 3:21 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This week, to celebrate the silver anniversary of Michael Jackson’s now classic “Bad” album,  Epic/Legacy released a deluxe 3 CD/1 DVD version of the set Tuesday. For those old enough to remember, the set was Mj’s seventh studio album and his follow-up to “Thriller.” Tales run rife of Jackson putting up notes with “100 Million” on them all over the studio to remind him of his sales target...as if he weren’t under enough pressure. [More after the jump...] “Bad,” which actually came out Aug. 31, 1987, spawned several hits and sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. Even though it became »

Review: Clint Eastwood is still a cranky old man in 'Trouble with the Curve'

20 September 2012 3:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clint Eastwood is very, very old. That's the basic premise of "Trouble with the Curve." It's also the source of most of the movie's humor (he has trouble urinating, he despises computers -- hilarious!), its drama (he never learned how to properly relate to his feisty lawyer daughter played by Amy Adams, he's developing problems with his eyes -- sad!) and its conflict (he may lose his job as a recruiter for the Atlanta Braves because "times have changed" -- shameful!). You see, Clint Eastwood is old. But dammit he still knows how to do his job better than anyone else, »
