Luke Owen counts down his personal Top 5 Fictional Deaths that he never quite got over....
Perhaps it’s the power of the writing, perhaps it’s the strength of the performance, but sometimes a fictional character's death in movies can affect us deep down inside to provoke an emotional response. Despite these people not being real, we still feel the need to shed some tears as the animators decide to stop drawing them or the actor walks off set to go and work on another movie.
What started today as a trending topic on Twitter got me thinking about my own Top 5 Fictional Deaths That I Never Quite Got Over. Looking through the feed you saw a lot of likely entries like the dog from Marley and Me, Mufasa from Lion King and Littlefoot’s Mum from Land Before Time etc etc. However none of these affected me in the way that the below did. »
With Man of Steel just a week away, the major studios opted to avoid releasing any of their heavy-hitters this weekend. At 3,365 locations, Wedding Crashers stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson team up again for The Internship, though the Google-centric premise isn't nearly as appealing as that of their previous collaboration. As a result, first place will likely go to low-budget high-concept horror flick The Purge, which is playing at 2,536 theaters and should wind up with over $20 million. Eight years ago, Wedding Crashers translated great word-of-mouth in to a $209.3 million domestic haul, which made it one of the highest-grossing R-rated comedies ever. Vince Vaughn followed that up with a string of hits, including The Break-Up ($118.7 million), Four Christmases ($120.1 million) and Couples Retreat ($109.2 million). Things were a bit tougher for Owen Wilson, though he did have a major success with Marley and Me ($143.2 million). In the last few years, though, both »

That's weird, because it would seem like most people's reaction to Jennifer Aniston would be to yawn or something, or maybe to see if she still talks to the dog from "Marley and Me," but for Selena Gomez, the correct reaction was terror. But then again, Selena dated Justin Bieber for over a year, so we can't really make any assumptions about her state of mind, can we?Let's let Selena tell her harrowing tale:"I ran away from Jennifer Aniston when she said, 'Hi', I was terrified of her... I was scared, so I ran away and I'm really embarrassed about that. I didn't know what to do - it's Rachel." Maybe you could have asked her how she got so famous by starring in a long line of mediocre TV shows and movies, Selena. Maybe you could have started there.--Emily Trainham Read more »

Time to break in your Red Carpet shoes Mr. Oscar. Preparations continued on Tuesday as the golden statues were being readied for their closeups at the 85th Academy Awards.
It was all glam and glitz as scenic artist Virginia Belloni gave the statutes a final once over before the Art Department crew moved them to Hollywood and Hughland – I mean Highland. Although if Jackman wins on Oscar Sunday, it will be!
At the Dolby Theater, the statues will line the length of the red carpet which is approximately 500 feet. A little bit of Oscar trivia – the size of most common set-dressing Oscar is 34 in. diameter (base), 7½ feet tall and 65 pounds.
While the statues were being dolled up, show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced that Oscar-winning actors Michael Douglas and Jamie Foxx will join Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd as presenters on the Oscar telecast.
Aniston’s credits include “The Switch, »

Director Peter Bogdanovich hasn't had a feature film released in theaters since 2001, but that's about to change. The 73-year-old filmmaker behind classics like Paper Moon and The Last Picture Show, has a new project in the works, a comedy formerly known as Squirrel to the Nuts (or Squirrels to Nuts) that's now being called She's Funny That Way. Indie stalwarts Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach are producing, and we already knew that Owen Wilson had joined the cast, but now we're getting word that he'll reunite with his Marley and Me co-star Jennifer Aniston here, as THR reports that the actress has just signed on. The story follows a married Broadway director (Wilson) who solicits a hooker-turned-actress (Brie Larson) and helps her with her career.

Jennifer Aniston has joined the cast of She's Funny That Way, Peter Bogdanovich's first feature since 2001's The Cat's Meow. (The movie was previously known as Squirrel to the Nuts, which is a much better title.) She'll play a therapist whose mother is in rehab opposite her Marley and Me co-star Owen Wilson, who will portray a Broadway director trying to launch the acting career of a former prostitute. Filling out the She's Funny That Way cast are awkward American Pie dad Eugene Levy, Jason Schwartzman (a favorite of producer Wes Anderson), the amazingly funny Kathryn Hahn, and the one and only Cybill Shepherd. »
