A pregnant teenager flees life with her drug-addicted mother and ends up living on the street before being welcomed into her first real home in this gripping first trailer for Gimme Shelter, an extraordinary tale of survival and redemption inspired by actual events. Starring Vanessa Hudgens, the film will be in theaters January 24, 2014.
For 16-year-old Agnes “Apple” Bailey (Vanessa Hudgens), life has been a constant struggle to overcome the harsh reality of a subsistence existence with her abusive mother, June (Rosario Dawson), and June’s string of lowlife boyfriends. When she finds herself pregnant and alone, Apple temporarily takes shelter with her biological father, Tom (Brendan Fraser), a wealthy Wall Streeter living in a New Jersey mansion with his wife Joanna (Stephanie Szostak) and two young children. But Apple’s inability to adjust to her new circumstances, and her refusal to terminate her pregnancy, soon force her back onto the streets. »

Nicole Kidman, who has starred in a number of high-profile literary adaptations (like "The Human Stain," "The Hours," and "Cold Mountain"), is set to bring another bestseller to the big screen, with "The Silent Wife," based on the summer smash by A.S.A. Harrison.
The novel, whose success was buoyed by residual interest in Gillian Flynn's breakthrough "Gone Girl" (which shares a similar structure and equal interest in thriller elements and bedroom dramas), was pushed in the summer and became a surprise hit. Harrison was a first-time novelist making her debut with a paperback original (instead of a hardcover); in a tragic twist, the writer succumbed to cancer just months before the book was published. Harrison never got to see what a phenomenon her slender novel would become.
Harrison's estate handled the sale of the book and development of the movie (Kidman is also a producer). "The Silent »

Pat Robertson has said so many batshit offensive things over the years, I gave up keeping track. But but this is so out there, all I can do is sadly shake my head.
Ricky Martin talks about his internalized homophobia when he was younger, and how it led to bullying people he knew were gay. “I was very angry, very rebellious. I used to look at gay men and think, I’m not like that, I don’t want to be like that, that’s not me. I was ashamed.”
Speaking of bullying, here are gay twins Gary and Larry Lane telling their own bullying stories.
Once in awhile, you feel intimidated by your job. This recently happened to me when I entered a hotel room and was greeted not only by Bruce Willis, who I'd been watching in a variety of amazing roles and performances since I was a child, but also by Anthony Hopkins, an actor whose mastery of the craft seems to border on the supernatural (and who also scared the hell out of me as a kid in "Silence of the Lambs"). Somehow, this intimidation was not undercut when Hopkins stepped forward, shook my hand, and demanded that I address him as "Tony."
The two stars were on hand in New York City to discuss their new movie "Red 2," the sequel to the 2010 action-adventure about retired spies who are pulled back into active duty.
Below, you can read what transpired between myself, Willis, and Hopkins, as they talk about their acting »

We’ve been told not to judge a book by its cover, but is it fair to judge a film by its title? Clearly, putting a name on your project must be something of a marketing migraine. You want an element of intrigue, but simply plucking a vaguely mysterious buzzword from the air will make people think they’re watching a perfume advert.
Likewise, you want to give your target audience some credit for being able to recognise a metaphor when they see one. So we know that the 1953 James Cagney film A Lion Is In The Streets is unlikely to be a public service announcement from the local zoo (although, curiously, Anne Francis does play a woman named Flamingo who attempts to feed her rival to an alligator).
But this list is not a crusade against figurative language. It would be absurd to expect a film title to accurately »

India Stoker (Mia Wasikowska) was not prepared to lose her father and best friend Richard (Dermot Mulroney) in a tragic auto accident. The solitude of her woodsy family estate, the peace of her tranquil town, and the unspoken somberness of her home life are suddenly upended by not only this mysterious accident, but by the sudden arrival of her Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), whom she never knew existed. When Charlie moves in with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evie (Nicole Kidman), India thinks the void left by her father’s death is finally being filled by his closet bloodline. Soon after his arrival, India comes to suspect that this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives. Yet instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless young woman becomes increasingly infatuated with him.
