Sin City offered up throngs of fans for Chris Martin's Friday performance at the iHeartRadio music festival. But one very special Coldplay fan watched the Las Vegas show from the sidelines: Martin's new lady love, Jennifer Lawrence. Following a few quiet date nights at Martin's Malibu home and a romantic dinner on Sept. 8, the actress stepped out to support the musician for a more public - and louder - appearance. "She was off to the side of the stage when he performed," a source tells People. Lawrence, who was seen backstage, showed off her midriff in a studded black crop top, »

20. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)
Directed by: Terry Gilliam
So…drugs, right? Based on Hunter S. Thompson’s 1971 novel of the same title, Fear and Loathing stars Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro as Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo, respectively. The pair is heading to Sin City, speeding through the Nevada desert, under the influence of mescaline. From there, the film is series a bizarre hallucinations seen through the eyes of Duke. So, we jump from hotel room to hotel room, all of the action a blur of what is happening and what really isn’t. Throughout the course of the film, Duke and/or Gonzo ingest the following drugs: mescaline, sunshine acid, diethyl ether, LSD, cocaine, and adenochrome (probably more). Duke – who is a Thompson stand-in – is supposed to be writing an article before heading back to Los Angeles, but tends to get sidetracked quite a bit. In »

After becoming Marvel’s biggest-franchise starter at the global box-office by overtaking the haul of 2008’s Iron Man earlier in the week, James Gunn’s space opera Guardians of the Galaxy has now become the first release of 2014 to hit $300 million domestically and has also crossed the $600 million mark worldwide. Having opened in Japan yesterday, and with a Chinese release still to come, Guardians certainly has a good chance of becoming the highest-grossing comic book movie of the year, with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on $708 million, Captain America: The Winter Soldier on $714 million and X-Men: Days of Future Past on $745 million.
Guardians of the Galaxy sees Gunn directing a cast that includes Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (Riddick) as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) as Groot, Benicio Del Toro (Sin City) as The Collector, »

Las Vegas' Bellagio Fountains are about to get "Maximal Crazy," thanks to Tiesto. The electronic music producer will debut a score for the Sin City attraction, which features choreographed water sequences set to lights and music — usually from the likes of Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley, as well as rotating headliners Elton John and Celine Dion. To be fair, the hitmaker of "Red Lights" and "Wasted" also is a headliner at MGM Grand Hotel's Hakkasan nightclub and Wet Republic dayclub (Bellagio and MGM Grand are both MGM Resorts International properties). Earlier this year, Forbes named him the third-

Floyd Mayweather is unquestionably one of the world’s best-known athletes.
His fights are big-time sporting events, regularly attended by the likes of Jack Nicholson, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Leonardo Di Caprio, and provide a huge boost to the Las Vegas economy as tens of thousands flock to Sin City to revel in the big occasion. This will again be the case on Saturday as millions await his rematch with tough Argentine Marcos Maidana.
Mayweather, for so long a fighter who seemed nigh-on untouchable in the ring, last fought in May, and although he was rightly awarded the decision many were surprised to see him struggle to suppress Maidana’s fearless challenge. It is too early to assume that Mayweather – now 37 – is now in decline, but he is certainly nearing the end of a glittering career of almost unparalleled success.

Speaking with AlternativeNation.net, the legendary actor and voice actor Stacy Keach spoke about his role as Wallenquist in the newly released Sin City sequel, A Dame To Kill For. Acknowledging the movie's box office failure, Keach admits, "The movie’s not doing great, I think the reason the critics are saying is that they waited too long. Waited too long between the original and sequel. Its not doing business. I have a feeling that its longevity down the road will show, and it will be redeemed." When asked by the interviewer about the longevity and box office value of comic book movies in general, the actor stressed that as long as the vision and right writers are available, any medium is here to stay. "No, I don’t think its gonna fizzle out! Animation and graphic storytelling are here to stay. Its part of the form of language of film, »

Lifetime aired its buzzed-about biopic on the late Brittany Murphy — aptly titled The Brittany Murphy Story — Saturday night. Controversy reached a fever pitch last week when Murphy’s father Angelo Bertolotti told Examiner he is “outraged” by the “hideous, unauthorized, and completely untrue” film. However, after watching the movie, he isn’t too far off-base.
The Brittany Murphy Story is bad, and that’s an understatement. The film is plagued by poor acting (yes, even for Lifetime), choppy time jumps, and tonal inconsistencies. If we’re to believe Lifetime, Murphy (played by Amanda Fuller) was a too-trusting, insecure victim to paparazzi and shady con-artists — namely, her husband Simon Monjack, who died five months after Murphy in the same room from the same cause. The film is more exploitative than exploratory. Is any of this true? We might never know, but fans certainly shouldn’t be happy about it. »
Having retained top spot at the Us box office this past weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy has now pushed its worldwide box office haul to $586 million, overtaking the total of 2008’s Iron Man to become Marvel Studios’ highest-grossing franchise starter. Reacting to the news, James Gunn posted the following message on Facebook:
If I had a penny for every time someone said making a Marvel movie with a talking raccoon was dumb and that Guardians was going to bomb, I’d probably have just about the amount of money Guardians has made so far. So I’m glad I spent that time making a film instead of counting people and their opinions, because we’re still going strong. Also, making the »

They're all in Sin City to see Michael (Terrence Jenkins) and Candace (Regina Hall) finally tie the knot. But while everyone is determined to enjoy the pre-marital fun, talk of babies, past indiscretions and the dreaded mother-in-law turns it into one huge game of relationship roulette. »
Quentin Tarantino’s passion for the New Beverly Cinema began when he was just another kid showing up for the nightly double feature. It grew when he found success as a filmmaker and began to subsidize owner Sherman Torgan to the tune of $5,000 per month to keep the place open. Ultimately Tarantino bought the building and now he’s taking over the whole theater from Torgan’s son Michael. Tarantino has grand plans to curate a program of films he is confident will please fellow cinefiles and give him an excuse to showcase his voluminous collection of film prints and trailers.
His first move: Jettisoning the digital projector that Michael installed. When the L.A. institution reopens in October after three months of renovations and a thorough cleaning of the onetime porno palace, the New Beverly will have a unique mission: All 35mm prints, all the time. “The big thing »

Rrmbllll Kkkkrrakkk goes the lightning as Frank Miller’s Batman hits the streets for the first time in 1986’s seminal The Dark Knight Returns. A faceless, lowlife pimp throws one of his girls into a cab, threatening to cut her. The bearded, downtrodden cabbie accepts a stack of bills from the pimp; he mutters to himself, “dog eat dog world…” Unseen, Batman descends onto the yellow, checkered cab’s roof. The pimp finds himself on the receiving end of some brutality off-panel. The money is shredded. And with another Krakk – end scene.
This hardly feels like pages ripped from a William Gibson novel, more like frames from a grainy, 35-mm Taxi Driver print. The synopsis for Tdkr returns dubs itself “near-future”, and the genre “cyber-punk” has been tossed around by readers and critics alike. But really (mutant punks aside) the book falls into the Death Wish genre. Aging man, urban and moral decay, »

(Cbr) Racing with the "Fast and Furious" franchise, evading bounty hunters in the "Riddick" series and saving the galaxy in "Guardians of the Galaxy" isn’t enough action and intrigue for Vin Diesel. No, the man needs to kick things up a notch by tracking down and killing witches. That’s exactly what he’ll do in "The Last Witch Hunter," director Breck Eisner’s upcoming action movie that stars Diesel as an ancient hero who — you guessed it — hunts after witches. In the film, Diesel’s character Kaulder is tasked with pursuing a group of witches in modern-day New York City. Feast your eyes on this: You wouldn’t know that the film takes place in present times from the first official photo, which Diesel posted on his Facebook page.
