Jessica Alba and Cash Warren took their daughters to Disneyland for two days of fun on Sunday and Monday. The family of four visited the main park and California Adventure, where they checked out multiple rides and games. Jessica and Cash rode Space Mountain and the group also hopped on Pirates of the Caribbean and Indiana Jones, and posed with a holiday-themed Mickey Mouse. Their trip to the Happiest Place on Earth came during a break from Cash's work on his latest producing project, In the Blood, which he's been filming with Cam Gigandet since last week. The Alba-Warrens are staying busy as the year comes to a close, but they still have time to make a mark in our Best of 2012 coverage. Make sure to vote if they happen to be your favorite celebrity family, or if you think Jessica had the best bikini moment of the last 12 months. »

There is either a couple of football fans or Jerry Maguire/Moneyball with this year’s most liked unproduced screenplay. Close to 300 hundred film executives provided with the Black List creators a top ten of their favorite screenplays of the year and the consensus first overall pick (with 65 votes) comes from the recently featured in Variety (10 Screenwriters to Watch 2012) tandem of Rajiv Joseph & Scott Rothman and their drama which has nothing to do with enlisting in the armed forces. Draft Day – about the day in the life of a fictitious Buffalo Bills Gm appears to currently be in turnaround — which only means I expect to see this greenlight perhaps a little later than sooner – worth noting: top spot almost guarantees that the film will indeed go into production (2006, 2010 and 2011 are the exceptions.) Among the more alluring logline subjects we find on the list, I’d be keen on reading the »

What better way to spend quality time with the ones you love most than to go to the Happiest Place on Earth?! Actress Jessica Alba and hubby Cash Warren took their two adorable daughters, Honor, 4, and Haven, 1, to meet the man himself—Mickey Mouse (who was rocking that Santa suit, if we do say so ourselves). The beautiful family of four, who went to Disneyland on Sunday to enjoy the famous Christmas decor, bundled up to stay warm in the chilly weather while flashing their pearly whites for a picture with Mickey. On top of all that cuteness, Warren shared an Instagram a photo of little Haven with mouse ears. "Here You Leave Today and Enter the World of Yesterday, Tomorrow and »
Tom Hanks has a problem with his dressing room.
The two-time Oscar winner and generally agreed-upon national treasure has just arrived backstage at UCLA's Freud Playhouse, dragging a duffel bag in each hand with his wife, Rita Wilson, trailing behind. (Wilson's wearing a neck brace, for some reason.) It's been 35 years since Hanks made a living in a place like the Freud – a 567-seat theater whose last big show was a student production of A Chorus Line – and though he has a reputation as a down-to-earth, easygoing guy, he's also, »
The holiday shopping season is in full swing, and just in case you were hoping Walt Disney Pictures wouldn’t add to the burden on your wallet, I hate to, but have to disappoint you. With three more shopping weeks left until Christmas Day, they’ve got two new Blu-ray/DVD combos for our perusal, The Odd Life of Timothy Green and Finding Nemo, both of which were among their big early-fall releases. Of course, the Pixar entry was getting a 3D re-release after its original 2003 release, but still, it’s a notable release because now you can finally claim ownership of every Pixar feature film.
I almost feel bad for not wholeheartedly loving The Odd Life of Timothy Green, an extraordinarily sincere and earnest family film about a childless couple who, one night, discover that their wishes and prayers to become adoptive parents has come true in the form »

Let's give Christina Aguilera an A for effort, at least. The Voice judge and boyfriend Matthew Rutler tried to go incognito for a trip to Disneyland over the weekend, donning the uniform of the masses: Mickey Mouse sweatshirts, black pants and boots that do not have red soles. Xtina even left behind that dip-dyed hair she'd been sporting up until the American Music Awards, but, alas, she got papped anyway. So much for the Happiest Place on Earth. »
Warner Bros. has announced that it will be releasing Westworld on Blu-ray next year. The 1973 sci-fi was directed and written by Michael Crichton, and starred Richard Benjamin, James Brolin, Alan Oppenheimer, Dick Van Patten, and Yul Brynner. At this time, all we know is that the Blu-ray will be available on March 5th, as no technical or bonus feature details have been announced.
You can take a look at the cover art below, and we’ve also included the synopsis and trailer for those that have not seen the movie:
“Welcome to West World, Crichton’s futuristic Disneyland for adults, a remote resort island where, for a hefty fee, you can indulge in your wildest fantasies in one of three convincing robot-run worlds: lusty Roman World, chivalrous Medieval World or lawless West World. It’s in West World that things run amok, though, as businessmen John Blane (Brolin) and Peter Martin »

Michael Eisner was once the crinkly, blue-eyed face of Disney, hosting revamped TV series The Wonderful World of Disney and green-lighting hits such as 1988′s Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and now the former CEO is ready to make movies again with another studio: Universal Pictures. The upcoming crop of films may include a Garbage Pail Kids reboot. Disney, you’re not the only one moving forward, snagging Lucasfilm!
Eisner, who headed up Disney from 1984 to 2005, inked a multiyear global distribution deal between his privately held Tornante Company and Universal, his rep confirmed to EW on Tuesday.

On a recent summer afternoon, Johnny Depp walks into a luxury suite at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. Oddly, he is dressed like a pirate. A faded paisley do-rag is tied around his head. Smaller strips of cloth are braided into his hair, and he has gold caps on several teeth. His loose white T-shirt, with its blue horizontal stripes, maybe more sailor than pirate, but it's definitely in the nautical family.
We should note that Depp has not come directly from the set of his latest film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest »
Collectors and auction houses immediately perked up their ears upon Tuesday’s announcements that Disney is buying Lucasfilm and a new Star Wars movie is slated for 2015. Will the value of Star Wars items — and especially those hybrid pieces of Disneyland memorabilia advertising Star Wars – go up? Those devoted fans – Star Wars junkies who have clamored after all things Jedi such as figurines, posters, costumes, and yes, lightsabers — voiced their support and skepticism to EW.
“The buzz among both fans and collectors appears pretty unanimous: Excitement! I think a lot of collectors see the acquisition as assurance that the Star Wars »

Walt Disney Presents Quentin Tarantino’s “Starr Wores Episode VII: Reservoir Jedis”, starring Justin Bieber as Luke Skywalker, with the simultaneous release of the Star Wars spin-off, “50 Shades of Jedi”, starring Kristen Stewart! Wait, that can’t be right. What I meant to say was…. Walt Disney has purchased LucasFilm yesterday for $4.05 billion and plans to have Episode VII in theaters in 2015!
Davenport & Co. analyst Michael Morris:
“We like this acquisition as the 2013-2014 [earnings] dilution estimate provided by management implies limited negative [stock] valuation impact of around $1.50-$2.00 per share at the current multiple before what should be a meaningful operating profit contribution in 2015,” Morris said. “This is not inexpensive, and the valuation will be debated, however with Pixar, Marvel and now Star Wars franchises to compliment the Disney brand, [the company] should provide a powerful kids and family content pipeline for many years.”
Looks like we’ll be getting a new »
Said George Lucas on the sale: “For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next. It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers. I’ve always believed that Star Wars could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime. I’m confident that with Lucasfilm under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy, and having a new home within the Disney organization, Star Wars will certainly live on and flourish for many generations to come. Disney’s reach and experience give Lucasfilm the opportunity to blaze new trails in film, television, interactive media, theme parks, live entertainment, and consumer products. »
Well, we certainly didn't expect to hear this kind of news, like, ever.
First of all, Disney just bought Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion dollars, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That's right, Mickey Mouse now owns the rights to the "Star Wars" franchise. Hey, it kind of makes sense — there's that Star Tours ride at Disneyland and all.
And let's just repeat that number, for the record, shall we? 4.05 billion dollars. George Lucas is wearing mouse ears and laughing maniacally right about now.
Second of all, now that Disney owns all the goings-on in a galaxy far, far away, "Star Wars: Episode VII" is officially in development and on track for 2015 (just in time to compete with Disney's own "Avengers" sequel). Kathleen Kennedy, current co-chair of Lucasfilm, will become Lucasfilm's president and will serve as executive producer on new Star Wars feature films, with George serving as "creative consultant."

Join us again today for a liveblog of Days of Our Lives.
Daniel Craig shares an erotically charged scene with Javier Bardem's villain in Skyfall, with Bardem stroking Bond's chest. Asked if he felt it had to do with the villain's sexuality, Craig said "What are you going to do? I don't see the world in sexual divisions. Someone suggested that Silva may be gay. And I'm like, I think he'll f**k anything."
When Rep. Paul Ryan stopped by a soup kitchen in Ohio, it was an unplanned stop, and the head of the charity isn't happy about it. The kitchen is funded by private donations, and is apolitical to keep the money flowing. “Had they asked for permission, it wouldn’t have been granted. … But I certainly wouldn’t have let him wash clean pans, and then take a picture."
Adam Pally says that he shares a »

Chris Colfer finally talked about "The Breakup," and while we have serious issues about his assertion that he was the ugly half of a power couple, we are curious with his speculation as the what the future holds for Kurt. "I'm just really excited to see what the future holds for him in general. Whether that means dating one person or a few over the course of the season, I just want to see him live and be his own person. He had a really bad year last season so it's been nice to see him spread his wings."
Some of these secret menus at fast food restaurants are truly terrifying, but if I'm completely honest, I might be willing to make the In-and-Out 100x100 the last thing I do before I die of a heart attack.
Taken 2 is dominating the box office this weekend, headed towards a $46 million opening, »
The film of On the Road opens in cinemas on 12 October. Inspired by Kerouac's legendary account of his journeys of self-discovery, Mark Ellen dropped out and hitchhiked across America. Here he pays homage to the book's enduring legacy
There's a great moment when the dust-caked heroes of On the Road reach Ozona, Texas, on the way to El Paso. Dean Moriarty decides they should loosen up a bit. "Disemburden yourselves of all that clothes!" he advises. "What's the sense of clothes?"
His obliging wife, Marylou, gets her kit off, and his friend Sal Paradise does the same. They're in one of those broad-beamed old cars with a bench for a front seat, heading west into the setting sun. "Every now and then a big truck zoomed by; the driver in the high cab caught a glimpse of a golden beauty sitting naked with two naked men. You could see them »
