Picture yourself in a New York City movie theater. It’s December 14, 2001. The film you’re watching is Vanilla Sky, a sci-fi fantasy from director Cameron Crowe and Tom Cruise, who delighted the world with Jerry Maguire a few years earlier. You are probably not enjoying yourself (it received a D- on Cinemascore) and as the film nears its twisty, trippy conclusion, your mind might be drifting towards more actionable realities, like which subway line to take home or what to eat for dinner. But then you come to the final scene, and you immediately snap to attention. You watch Cruise stand atop the tallest building in New York at dawn and willfully leap. He falls past endless office windows, braces for impact and hits the pavement. It’s hard to imagine any New Yorker watching this scene and not immediately flashing back to the events that occurred just three months prior, when »

It's been 15 years since Haley Joel Osment starred in "The Sixth Sense" -- and these days, he's looking very different.The actor started trending on Twitter on Wednesday after new photos of him from the set of Kevin Smith's upcoming film, "Yoga Hosers," dropped online.Sporting a business suit, Nazi stache and slicked back hair, the 26-year-old former child star was barely recognizable as he worked. It's unclear who he'll be playing in the film, but he was surrounded by Nazi propaganda on set.While it's a pretty shocking transformation for the young star, keep in mind this is still a set -- and he looks pretty different in real life.Osment hit the red carpet just last week at the Toronto Film Festival, where he was promoting another Smith film, and looked more like the Haley Joel we've come to know in the past couple years (right).It's »

Roger Goodell is making yet another effort to clarify what the NFL did and did not know — and did and did not see — regarding the brutal beating Ray Rice administered on his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City casino elevator in February. “First, we did not see video of what took place inside the elevator until it was publicly released on Monday,” Goodell wrote in a letter to league owners, re-iterating comments he made to CBS on Tuesday. “When the new video evidence became available, we acted promptly and imposed an indefinite suspension on Mr. Rice.” Also read: Real-Life ‘Jerry Maguire »

The NFL swears executives did not see the surveillance footage of former Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice knocking out his wife with one punch inside a casino elevator, but media outlets are citing sources saying otherwise, and former Raven Wally Williams agrees the league's statement is “a total cover-up.” Also read: Real-Life ‘Jerry Maguire’ Agent: Ray Rice's Stardom Stopped NFL From Issuing Harsher Punishment “I think it is a total cover-up by the NFL. They're just trying to save themselves on this one. I think they all had the opportunity to see this video,” Williams, a former left guard and current. »

As the nation recoiled in horror at the video showing NFL star Ray Rice beating and dragging her around an Atlantic City casino, Janay Rice was defending her husband on Instagram. “I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend,” Janay Rice wrote, referring to TMZ's publication of the elevator surveillance video that led to her husband's termination by the Baltimore Ravens and suspension by the NFL.

It took months of criticism and, more significantly, the publication of a tape depicting the assault he committed against his then-fianceé, to get football star Ray Rice suspended indefinitely by the NFL and cut by the Baltimore Ravens. The NFL claims league officials hadn't seen the video when commissioner Roger Goodell gave Rice a two-game suspension, a relatively short punishment that earned the league so much flak that it had to re-write its bylaws. Whether Goodell really was ignorant of the tape, super agent Leigh Steinberg, whose life inspired the film “Jerry Maguire,” thinks the league knew more than enough to issue Rice a. »

TMZ has announced that it will release new details on Tuesday morning to prove that the NFL knew about the four-month old hotel elevator video that shows Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, and knocking her unconscious. The two have since married. TMZ's founder Harvey Levin spoke to Wttg Fox 5 in Washington DC about the video on Monday evening, saying that the NFL “turned a blind eye” to the surveillance video, insisting that they've known it existed.

Fear of commitment is one of those topics that pops up a lot in the world of romantic comedies. Jerry Maguire (1996) shows Tom Cruise struggling to say "I love you" in a convincing fashion, and in When Harry Met Sally (1989) Billy Crystal makes terrible excuses to leave early in the morning after each date. Failure To Launch (2006) spelled it out more bluntly than perhaps we needed – in Hollywood, men are afraid of love. Love is a scary business. Even so, it rarely comes with a health warning.
So I Married An Axe Murderer is that rare film. It suggests that the lead character is right to be terrified of commitment. In fact, running away might just save his life. This is a tricky idea to get right, because the audience »
Based on a true story, Million Dollar Arm focuses on J.B. Bernstein (Jon Hamm), a floundering sports agent who is in desperate need of a big signing. Late night channel-flipping between a cricket match and Susan Boyle’s ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ brings inspiration (as it so often does) and soon Bernstein is journeying to India to host a talent competition that will determine which would-be cricketers have the best chance at being groomed into baseball players. Returning to America with the contest winners Rinku Singh (Life of Pi’s Suraj Sharma) and Dinesh Patel (Madhur Mittal) in tow, the two prospects soon begin training under unorthodox coach Tom House (Bill Paxton), but have »

Remembers Jonathan Lipnicki, the adorable kid in Cameron Crowe’s Jerry Maguire? Well he’s back. Now eighteen years after he played Ray Boyd, the 23 old actor stars in this hilarious new comedy sketch titled You Used to Be Cute, and defending himself against all sorts of false accusations. The clip opens with Lipnicki reading an emotional monologue for an audition, pretty much landing the gig, before the three casting agents confuse him for somebody else. Watch the video below. Enjoy!
Bart: Have you noticed, Mike, that the gamesmanship of pre-festival season is often more entertaining than the fest movies themselves? Toronto has slammed the door on distributors who were sneaking their films into Telluride, then billing Toronto screenings as World Premieres.
Fleming: Labor Day Weekend for me is about getting kids back to school and squeezing the last moments of a summer that has flown by. I have never been to Telluride because the last thing I want to do is spend that holiday weekend in a succession of dark rooms in Colorado. Toronto is my favorite festival. It’s a wonderful platform for distributors to acquire films after seeing how they play to an audience, and to launch »

Like many former child actors, Lipnicki is forever stuck in people’s minds as that one cute kid in that one movie from awhile ago—and those same people are shocked when they find out that, crazily enough, he’s now an adult. Lipnicki pokes fun at this mindset in a new video that shows him auditioning for a role, only to find the casting team comparing him to other former child actors. And, naturally, interrogating him about his (fictional) addiction issues.

We write about the film business cynically as a business, but we’re a bunch of film geeks, really. I thought this when I experienced moments ago the closest thing a guy on his couch will face to a “Sophie’s Choice.” On Spike TV, there was the incomparable Roy Scheider slinging chum off the back of a boat, and a giant great white shark surfacing in Jaws, and Scheider telling Robert Shaw, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.” And on AMC, at the same time, there’s Goodfellas, nearing its climax, when Karen Hill (Lorraine Bracco) is directed by Jimmy (Robert De Niro) to go in a storefront to pick out dresses. This after she sets up a meeting between Jimmy and her recently pinched husband Henry Hill (Ray Liotta), who’s about to go rat on his Lufthansa heist pal. What would have happened had Karen gone »

Jerry Maguire did not complete Scott Boras-- in fact, the super-agent tells TMZ Sports the '96 flick was a blueprint on how Not to handle a player-agent relationship in the real world. Boras -- who reps some of the biggest stars in Mlb and famously negotiated Alex Rodriguez's $275 million mega deal in 2007 -- was at Lax this weekend when he told us the Tidwell-Maguire bromance in the movie is bad for business.

Directed by Amy Heckerling.
A year in the life of teenagers at Ridgemont High as they fall in love, have sex and smoke their way through school.
Fast Times at Ridgemont High is a staple of 1980’s teenage cinema. Part of the ‘Teenage Kicks’ season at the BFI, this is where Cameron Crowe (who would go on to direct Jerry Maguire and Almost Famous) and Amy Heckerling (of Clueless and Look Who’s Talking) would get their start. The many cast members, including Sean Penn as a sweet stoner, would all use Fast Times as a springboard for successful careers following its release in 1982. What separates Fast Times from teenage films such as Porky’s, is the sense of sincerity and brutal honesty it seeks. Fast Times at Ridgemont High is purposefully explicit, »
