15 years ago today, the Toros stepped out onto the football field and put some serious cheer back into the atmosphere. To steal a phrase from the film: Bring It On's the poo - so take a big whiff.
A Hollywood star from the age of 12 thanks to her breakthrough role in Interview with the Vampire, Dunst's star was burning brightly when she led the Toros as Torrance Shipman. Two years later, she went on to land her biggest role as Mary Jane Watson in Sam Raimi's three Spider-man films.
In recent years, she's reinvented herself as a critical darling, winning Best Actress at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for Melancholia, »
‘More than most in his shoes, Evans oozes a weary kindness, and that is my catnip’
It’s not an obvious movie star name, is it? For years, the most famous person to bear it was a wildly successful English TV presenter whose biggest draw was his anarchic take on Friday night telly. But this Chris Evans, one of the biggest film stars in the world, is very different, and I have the biggest crush on him.
I first saw him in Not Another Teen Movie, a 2001 parody of, you guessed it, teen movies. Then he was in 2005’s Fantastic Four, playing up his greatest gift: an affable, old-fashioned charm. Evans, 34, is from Boston, and the city’s a good metaphor for the man: solid, unflashy, still kind of earthy, despite its proximity to decadent New York. He is often compared to a puppy by admiring internet-dwellers, and you can see why: big eyes, »

A couple years ago, my friend and I came up with the germ of an idea for a movie plot, centered on a man who -- after a near-fatal accident -- began to see life as one big giant musical and corresponded to this discovery accordingly, even when his perplexed local citizens couldn't understand his actions or point-of-view. Little did we know, though, a similar-minded movie was already in the works at Disney called Bob: The Musical. The in-the-works production focuses on an everyman who -- upon getting a nasty blow to the noggin -- starts to instantly hear the songs inside everyone's hearts as his life is turned into a musical. Mild jealously aside, I'm very curious to see what is cooked up here if it actually comes into fruition, which is looking more-and-more likely. Earlier this year, Tom Cruise joined the film to play the titular character, with »

Disney’s long-gestating musical comedy Bob the Musical, in which The Artist helmer Michel Hazanavicius may direct Tom Cruise, will be written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon, The Hollywood Reporter revealed last night. Additionally, Bret McKenzie, who won an Oscar for “Man or Muppet” from The Muppets has been enlisted to write songs for the pic.
Bob the Musical centers on a regular guy who suffers a head injury after which he is able to hear the heart songs of everyone around him – much to his confusion and dismay. It’s been in development for more than a decade but recently got a shot in the arm when Hazanavicius, searching for a mainstream project to tackle in the wake of 2011 Best Picture winner The Artist, got involved.
As for Cruise, he’s still circling the lead role but has not signed on yet. The actor has flourished in musical »

Over the course of his career, Chris Evans has become a familiar face to film fans for roles in a variety of genres, including a comedic performance in Not Another Teen Movie, a dramatic turn in Snowpiercer, a romantic lead in The Nanny Diaries, and most notably as Captain America across several Marvel films, including two standalone features focused on his character. His upcoming feature, however, sees Evans take on a new role; that of a director, as he steps behind the camera for the first time in his career. Titled Before We Go, the synopsis of the film is as follows.
A woman misses the 1:30 train from New York to Boston and a street musician spends the night trying to help her make it back home before her husband does. Throughout the night they learn a lot about one another and eventually find a romance.

Some would say 1999's She's All That, starring Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cook (back when they were very much all that), already had a sort-of remake with 2001's Not Another Teen Movie. But not according to Hollywood! The Wrap reports that a remake of the Pygmalion-inspired rom-com is in the works, with Kenny Leon directing and Spike Lee's wife producing — which hopefully means we'll see some black actors in lead roles rather than swagless token friends and campus DJs (remember Usher?!). None of this matters, of course, unless the remake can somehow top the original's theme song, Sixpence None the Richer's "Kiss Me." What a gem.Update: BuzzFeed's Emily Orley says The Weinstein Co. and Mirimax have not reached a deal for a She's All That reboot. We can breathe again .. for now. »
