Will Smith's in quite the predicament! The new trailer for "Focus" starring Will and "The Wolf of Wall Street's" Margot Robbie just dropped, and we're finally getting to see some of that on-screen chemistry between the stars. The movie follows Smith's Nicky Spurgeon, a con artist who falls for his beautiful intern (Robbie) while teaching her the trade. Check out the trailer for "Focus" above! Originally, writers and directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa cast Ben Affleck and Kristen Stewart to star in the flick ... but, both actors ended up dropping out. Smith and Robbie later signed-on and once production wrapped, reports surfaced that the two had taken things a little too far off-screen. Last November, Star mag reported that the "Hitch" star cheated on wife Jada Pinkett Smith at the film's wrap party. But the 24-year-old put the allegations to bed when she tweeted that the news was simply untrue. »

The sparks are flying between Will Smith and Margot Robbie—onscreen, that is! The first trailer for Focus debuted Thursday, depicting Smith, 46, and Robbie, 24, as a couple of star-crossed con-artists. In the dramatic romantic comedy (think Hitch, but a lot grittier), Smith portrays Nicky Spurgeon, a seasoned con-artist who boasts he can "convince anyone of anything." Robbie, who plays up-and-coming con-artist Jess Barrett, is a little too eager to learn. "I want in," she says, adding provocatively, "Maybe you could teach me in your room!" "That is so bad," he replies, laughing about her seduction attempt, "Does it feel sexy on your »
You know how every time there's a new Will Smith trailer, you kind of hope it's going to be Hitch 2 (a.k.a. 2 Hitch 2 Furious)? Sadly, that dream remains deferred, but at least Smith looks like he gets to be charming again. In Focus, he plays a con man who takes Margot Robbie under his wing as if she were a young Kevin James. Then they just make sly glances and steal watches for a while until it's time for the big score, because there's always a big score. Can't wait for the scene when he teaches her how to dance super cool. »

At 46, after 20 years in the business, Will Smith is still the coolest guy in the room. Say that his recent output reflects a former heavyweight star waning into obscurity and I'll show you a man who transcends the biggest duds. He still made those stuffy men in black look good in "MIB3," wound up overshadowing his kid successor as Cypher Raige in "After Earth," and joined Godly ranks as a wickedly funny Devil in mystifying "Winter's Tale." (And for fact-checkers: He only played the creation of the gods in "Hancock.") Smith isn't versatile, but he's reliable. The trailer for "Focus," the actor's latest, puts a darker spin on that established cool, Smith playing a confidence man in the thick of conspiracy. The man knows confidence. From "I Love You Philip Morris" and "Crazy, Stupid, Love." writer-directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, "Focus" stars Smith as Nicky, a top-of-his-game grifter and »

Will Smith's tapped back into his inner romantic in Focus, an upcoming con-artist tale that pairs him with The Wolf of Wall Street's Margot Robbie, but don't expect him to go full-on Hitch. Focus follows Smith's Nicky Spurgeon, a grifter who shows Robbie's Jess Barrett, an alarmingly attractive intern, the tricks of the trade. But things get complicated — even for con artists — when he falls for her. The film from writing/directing duo Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, has been in the works for a while, with several actors attached and then dropping out, including Kristen Stewart and Ben Affleck. »

We've already seen Alfonso Ribeiro "Get Jiggy With It" on Dancing With the Stars, but of course the question still remains: Will the former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star ever break out the Carlton Dance? E! News tried to get to the bottom of the burning query when we caught up with the 43-year-old celeb, as well as former Karate Kid star Ralph Macchio, who recently partnered with Wendy's for the fast food chain's #bbq4Merica campaign to promote their new pulled pork sandwiches. "I think Will Smith did it best in Hitch," Ribeiro dished when asked to share his go-to dance move before he and Macchio broke out into a nice little side step. "And I do the White »
We have a new trailer for upcoming comedy The Wedding Ringer to show you tonight. I was underwhelmed with the first trailer, and maybe it’s the Irish coffee I’m drinking, but this is looking pretty darn funny. There are few gags I wish they would have kept until show time but let’s face it, trailers are designed for opening weekend numbers now and try to cram in as much as they can. It has the same DNA as say Hitch where Will Smith played a “date »

The Gosling baby is here!
The gorgeous couple welcomed a baby girl on Friday, September 12, Et can confirm. Eva spent a few days in the hospital recuperating, before bringing the baby home.
News broke in July that the two were expecting.
"She’s very independent but she's content with her partner. She finally found the person she really wants to be with," People quoted a source about the notoriously private Hitch actress, who's said in the past that she wasn't planning on getting married or having children.
The couple has been dating since 2011, after meeting on the set of their 2012 film The Place Beyond the Pines.
This will be the first child for both, though plenty of people are already speculating that the Gosling offspring will probably be one of the most beautiful babies ever -- including [link=nm »
Mendes gave birth to a daughter with Gosling on Sept. 12, reports Us Weekly.
Both Gosling and Mendes have remained tightlipped during the former’s pregnancy. Despite a number of media reports claiming that the Hitch actress was pregnant, neither actor confirmed the news. In fact, back in February, Mendes completely refuted the suggestion that they were expecting.
"It's so ridiculous,” Mendes told Ellen DeGeneres on her daytime talk show. "It all started because I didn't want to go through the scanners at the airport. You know those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy? They basically see you naked, right? And not only that, but there's a radiation aspect to it, so I always opt out."
Mendes’ claim that she was not expecting did little to quell the rumors »

A Happy 79th birthday to Barbara Harris. She hasn't acted in such a long time but she was often just wonderful on the screen with unique rhythm, energy and comic ability.
I'm not sure that anything about Alfred Hitchcock's Family Plot (Hitch's last feature in 1976) totally works but if you could argue that any of it does it's either the cemetery scene or anything involving Barbara Harris's performance as a con-artist psychic. The movie is frustrating since it feels half formed and its inarguably flabby: every time you need the editing too tighten it up which would have made everything, including the memorable actors (Karen Black and Bruce Dern are also on hand), pop. It just keeps the scene going.

Surprise! Eva Mendes shocked the world after news broke on Wednesday, July 9, that she and boyfriend Ryan Gosling are expecting their first child together. As she gets ready for baby, the often-private star has maintained an extremely low profile in recent months. Mendes made her last official red carpet appearance on Wednesday, March 19, in Cerritos, Calif., at a launch event for her New York & Company Spring 2014 collection. At the event, the Hitch star, 40, wore a sleeveless printed floral frock in an A-line [...] »
The greatest love story of all of our lives has officially Been Murdered. By a baby. Maybe. Today, everyone you know is Freaking The F--k Out because of a report claiming that Eva Mendes, female biologically inclined to bear children and actress who starred in Hitch, has been impregnated by Ryan Gosling, your imaginary boyfriend. And the real victim in all this? Rachel McAdams. Won't anyone think of McGosling?! While the miracle of birth is beautiful, what was more beautiful was when Ryan Gosling dated Rachel McAdams. They made out in the rain. They made out onstage at MTV award shows. He kept picking her up. She sat on his lap at cute Canadian cafes. They told each other that if you are »
That sound? It's the collective crack of millions of hearts breaking all over the world.

Matt Walsh, who plays the sweaty, mustachioed Mike McLintock on Veep, has joined the Wild Oats cast, which includes Demi Moore, Shirley MacLaine, and Jessica Lange. Andy Tennant (Hitch, Fools Rush In) is directing the comedy about a woman (MacLaine) who gets a surprise windfall because of a computer glitch, and decides to run and take the money rather than fess up. Walsh will be playing a grifter named Forbes. With three films coming out (the tornado chase flick Into the Storm, the rom-com Sex Ed, and his second film as a director, A Better You) and another in production (6 Miranda Drive, a horror movie with Kevin Bacon), Walsh is a busy man. »

"This is one hell of a whirlwind," Kevin Hart told USA Today about his upcoming comedy "The Wedding Ringer." "It's a modern-day bromance with two guys who feed off each other really well." And that's pretty much all you need to know. Well that, and the fact that yes, Hart continues to be an unstoppable comedy hit machine, and with "Think Like A Man Too" getting set to top the box office this weekend, Sony is wise enough to already start the promo machine for his next movie. Once that isn't coming out until next year... So here we go with "The Wedding Ringer," which is basically Kevin Hart's "Hitch," and instead of Kevin James, we've got Josh Gad. "I run a business where I'm a great best man for the right price," Hart explains. "But I do what has never been done before in this case. I make »

Just read the synopsis and watch the trailer for proof: Jimmy (Kevin hart) provides best man services for socially »
