Taylor Kitsch and Chace Crawford Hung Out Together and Our Nostalgic Hearts Can't Handle It
A video posted by New York Rangers (@nyrangers) on Dec 13, 2016 at 5:32pm Pst Taylor Kitsch and Chace Crawford put their sweet bromance on full display on Wednesday, and we haven't been the same since. The longtime friends were caught on camera when they attended a New York Rangers game at Madison Square Garden. "Taylor Kitsch and Chace Crawford here cheering on #Nyr!!" the sports team captioned the clip on Instagram. "Clear eyes, Full hearts, Xoxo." While Chace flashed his gorgeous smile, Taylor kept things cool by throwing up a peace sign. While many people know them for their roles in Friday Night Lights and Gossip Girl, respectively, they actually costarred in the supernatural horror thriller The Covenant back in 2006. If you need us, we'll just be daydreaming about what a friendship between Tim Riggins and Nate Archibald would look like. Related:Gossip Girl: Where Are the Stars Now?

In the latest influx of Chinese cash to come Hollywood’s way, the veteran Hollywood producer Scott Einbinder has officially launched a Los Angeles-based finance and production company with the full backing of China’s East Light Film Company.

Is a Gossip Girl Reunion In the Works? Sebastian Stan Is Down!
Spotted: Sebastian Stan getting Gossip Girl fans hopes up at the Captain America: Civil War special screening.

Ed Westwick Roasts 'Gossip Girl' Costar Chace Crawford at Actor's 30th Birthday Bash

  • TooFab
Nate and Chuck are still BFFs! Former "Gossip Girl" stars Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick were spotted in West Hollywood on Saturday night, as Chace celebrated his 30th birthday with a dinner and roast at The London Hotel. The event -- which was presented by Freixenet Spanish Cava and River Virtual Reality -- reunited the on and off-screen buddies for what we're told was a night of "food, cocktails, laughter and dancing." Westwick, brother-in-law Tony Romo and good friend Ashley Fink all roasted the actor during the dinner, all cracking jokes about the birthday boy. Other celeb attendees at the bash included Jc Chasez, "Orange Is the New Black" star Matt McGorry, fellow "Gg" alum Jessica Szohr, Zelda Williams, Caroline Wozniacki, Kevin Zegers, Lucas Grabeel and "Gossip Girl" creators Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz. A video message was also shown during the evening, with messages sent in from Taylor Kitsch

25 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 2000s

Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal and, erm, Kangaroo Jack: they all nabbed the box office top spot last decade...

By the end of the 2000s, getting number one at the American box office was a valuable marketing commodity. As such, studios pumped more and more money into making sure they at least had a great opening weekend for their product.

The consequence of this was that it was harder and harder for smaller and quirkier films to take a brief spot in the sun. Certainly towards the second half of the decade, it seems that the number one movie each week was pre-ordinained in a marketing meeting somewhere.

Still, there were some films that have since fallen out of public view that clawed their way to number one. How many of these do you remember?

Eye Of The Beholder

Based on Marc Behm's book of the same name,

First Look at Jeffrey Reddick's Good Samaritan

Final Destination creator Jeffrey Reddick's new short film, which he both wrote and directed, Good Samaritan, will be playing as part of this year's Screamfest L.A. film festival; and right now we have a couple of new stills for you! Dig 'em!

The film stars Toby Hemingway (pictured; Black Swan, The Covenant) and Rainn Wilson ("The Office," Super, House of 1000 Corpses). Based on the Hit List winning feature, Good Samaritan tells of Nathan Rome (Hemingway), an agoraphobic who videotaped a man get fatally beaten while numerous bystanders watched and didn't intervene.

The short opens with Nathan being interviewed by George Reed (Wilson), a conservative talk show host who blasts Nathan for his inaction. George points out that two of the other witnesses have died mysteriously and cryptically ponders if Nathan might be next. Nathan is convinced the other deaths were accidents. But after George shreds his morality on national TV,

Top Five Moments From Last Night’s “Revenge”

Previously, On Reven8e.

Patrick gets shirtless and says farewell … again, and Aidan displays his enhanced interrogation techniques

Here are five highlights:

Paying Respects

Patrick decides to attend the wake of dear old demented dad, and after one of Jimmy’s co-workers (who is the walking definition of “Big Lug”) drones on about what a swell guy Jimmy was, Patrick interrupts, calling Jimmy a rapist, and for good measure hocks a giant loogie on to Jimmy’s picture. Hey, we all mourn in our own way. Unfortunately, Jimmy’s co-lugs aren’t too thrilled with Jimmy’s tribute, and proceed to beat the pulp out of him.

Victoria collects him from the hospital, and it’s obvious that Patrick is a lost man, drowning in his own anger.

Victoria: “You’re going to get yourself killed.”

Patrick: “Well, maybe I should.”

Victoria: “You don’t honestly believe that.”

Patrick: “I

ICM Partners Signs Sebastian Stan, ‘Captain America 2′s Winter Soldier

  • Deadline
Exclusive: ICM Partners has reason to crow a little this morning. The agency just signed Sebastian Stan. He’s the goth-looking villain in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which Marvel Studios and Disney release shortly. Stan, who had been repped by Wme, appeared in the first Captain America as Bucky Barnes, the superhero’s sidekick in the WWII storyline who has a resurgence in the Marvel Comics and obviously the movie.

The Legend Of Hercules Swings This Epic TV Spot At Your Army

Since his break out in the late 1980s, director Renny Harlin has created films that seemed tailor-made for trailers, and more often than not, that trailer was a better experience than the film as a whole. (I.m looking at you, Cutthroat Island and The Covenant.) Harlin has topped himself with The Legend of Hercules, an action film that looks bigger and ballsier than anything he.s directed in recent years. But like most of his resume, it also looks like everyone forgot to have fun while making it. The TV spot above is a great example, as it.s filled with characters yelling at someone in peril and characters yelling because they.re in peril. I give you.Hercules! The kind of film that polarizes moviegoers even before making it to theaters, The Legend of Hercules is the somewhat rare giant blockbuster that is avoiding the summer release season

6 Lessons Director Renny Harlin Has Learned Over the Course of His Wild Career

6 Lessons Director Renny Harlin Has Learned Over the Course of His Wild Career
Hollywood is a tough town, and nobody knows that better than Renny Harlin. The Finnish director was on top of the world in the early nineties when he helmed blockbuster action films like Cliffhanger and Die Hard 2, but one of cinema's most notorious box-office bombs — his 1995 pirate flick Cutthroat Island, which cost a then-incredible $100 million and only made $10 million of it back — proved difficult for Harlin to recover from. "It was pretty incredible in the beginning, and then it sort of leveled out with some success and some disappointments," admits Harlin, who's spent the last decade directing television and low-budget films like The Covenant and 12 Rounds. "But I must say that now, I feel like it's springtime for me again." The 54-year-old director has a new movie coming out this week, the found-footage thriller Devil's Pass (you can watch an exclusive clip below),

Interview: Renny Harlin Takes Us Through the Devil's Pass

Renny Harlin returns to his horror roots with Devil's Pass (formerly The Dyatlov Pass Incident ) after having given us genre offerings like Prison , A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master , Deep Blue Sea , Exorcist: The Beginning and The Covenant . Harlin has always had one foot in the realm of action and the other planted firmly in horror and, this time, he's tackling the found footage sub-genre. Devil's Pass follows a group of American students on a trek to investigate the true life mystery of nine Russian skiers who befell unexplained deaths while skiing in the Russian mountains in 1959. To this day, their deaths have been one of the most bizarre unsolved mysteries of the 20th Century. In an interview with ShockTillYouDrop.com , Harlin explains why he...

Shock Interview: Renny Harlin Takes Us Through the Devil's Pass

Renny Harlin returns to his horror roots with Devil's Pass (formerly The Dyatlov Pass Incident) after having given us genre offerings like Prison, A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master, Deep Blue Sea and Exorcist: The Beginning and, well, I guess we should include The Covenant, too.  Harlin has always had one foot in the realm of action and the other planted firmly in horror and, this time, he's tackling the found footage sub-genre.

Devil's Pass follows a group of American students on a trek to investigate the true life mystery of nine Russian skiers who befell unexplained deaths while skiing in the Russian mountains in 1959. To this day, their deaths have been one of the most bizarre unsolved mysteries of the 20th century.

Review: Devil's Pass

Remember when director Renny Harlin was pretty awesome? Sure he hasn’t really made a masterpiece or reached the level of someone like John Carpenter, but he sure did direct a lot of fun movies: A Nightmare on Elm Street 4, Die Hard 2, Cliffhanger, The Long Kiss Goodnight, and Deep Blue Sea. Even Mindhunters is solid brainless entertainment.

What happened to that guy? The less said about The Covenant, 12 Rounds, and 5 Days of War, the better. His latest, Devil’s Pass (IFC releases it in select theaters and on VOD August 23), is not a return to form. It has far more in common with his recent work than his early career. Renny has lost his groove.
