Jennifer Lopez has released a new music video for her latest single "Live It Up."
The collaboration with Pitbull has the 43-year-old singer donning a "Black Swan"-esque get-up as she gets pampered and prepped for a big performance. Lopez breaks it down onstage with a series of rings -- an image that she teased earlier this week on "American Idol." The singer performed the track on the season finale of the talent competition on Thursday.
The music video for "Live It Up" (shown above) later transitions to beach scenes. The scenes were shot in Florida earlier this month. A day of filming the music video and accompanying interviews was disrupted when gunshots were fired near the beach in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Lopez was rushed off the scene in the midst of an interview with "Entertainment Tonight."
"Live It Up" is expected to be featured on Lopez's upcoming studio album, »

Many have spoken out in support of Angelina Jolie after the actress bravely revealed she underwent a preventive double mastectomy. And Natalie Portman's dad is no exception. Dr. Avner Hershlag, chief of the Center for Human Reproduction at North Shore Lij and father to the Black Swan actress, tells E! News he has the utmost respect for Brad Pitt's other half and also shares his own medical insight as Jolie continues the preemptive cancer treatment. "I feel a lot of adulation towards her announcement," Hershlag tells E! News. "She is doing so much service for so many women. Imagine a woman who did not know she should be tested. She sees Angelina's announcement, gets tested today »
Speaking with Empire Online, Breaking Bad actor Mark Margolis talks about reuniting with Darren Aronofsky on his anticipated Biblical epic Noah that's also based on the Black Swan director's graphic novel. "I play a 12-foot god," Margolis told the site, "[and] most of my character will be created through CGI." The actor plays a fallen angel called 'Samyaza', who Empire describes as "leader of a posse of six-armed angels known as the 'Watchers'. They're a giant breed of angels who have been at odds with God since the Fall - 'Samyaza' is another name for Satan - and likely to be a source of trouble for the Almighty, and Russell Crowe's Noah too." Margolis then discusses filming all of his scenes with Crowe and playing a 12-foot CGI character. "All of my scenes are with Russell [Crowe], who I found to be a very funny guy. They used me and my »
Proof that anything a mutated neutrino and Roland Emmerich can do, God can do better (and first), Darren Aronofsky's Noah is currently at the pointy end of production. The whole shebang is coalescing into something seriously intriguing - after all, we're talking about the director of Pi, Requiem For A Dream and Black Swan tackling the first ever apocalypse - and our spies tell us that even the big guy upstairs is excited to be involved. Someone else with a tingle of anticipation is Breaking Bad stalwart and old Aronofsky hand Mark Margolis, who plays a fallen angel known as Samyaza in the film. As he explained to Empire, he won't look anything like Breaking Bad's wheelchair-bound enforcer. "I play a 12-foot god," he said, "[and] most of my character will be created through CGI."Shooting in Iceland, Margolis took the mantle of leader of a posse of six-armed angels known as the 'Watchers'. »
Anthony Stokes thinks that Hollywood's current business model could be unsustainable...
Hollywood seems to be getting greedier and greedier with each year. There appears to be an endless amount of 3D animated movies, 3D re-releases, unnecessary remakes, and feature length commercials (feature length commercials are movies that are lacking in story or character development, but make up for it in product placement, like Transformers, G.I. Joe, Battleship, or any Adam Sandler movie).
What movie buffs realize that Hollywood doesn't - or maybe does, hence all the remakes - is that the way Hollywood is running is unsustainable. In the year 2012 there were eight movies that had a reported budget of over $170m. That's four times as many as the year 2010. Granted 2012 had many more event films than 2010, which was a relatively quiet year. The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises both came out to name a few, but there were also many others. »

Now in pre-production, the 1884-set animated fare, helmed by Canadian duo Eric Warin and Eric Summer, tells the tale of Felice, an 11-year-old orphan girl from Brittany who dreams of becoming a ballerina at the Paris Opera. Together with Corentin, a little boy she meets at the orphanage, Felice flees to Paris to chase her dream.

Nicolas Duval, Laurent Zeitoun and Yann Zenou are producing. Gaumont is co-producing, and reps “Ballerina” for international markets and will distribute in Gaul. Meanwhile, eOne has nabbed all distribution rights for Canada.
Gaumont is in talks to close the U.K., all of Eastern Europe, »

Much has been made of Jay-z’s involvement with Baz Lurhmann’s epic adaptation of The Great Gatsby. The music mogul has never before lent his name or his talents to a project in this way before (we’re not counting his “inspired by” American Gangster album). Despite the hype, this soundtrack collaboration is fundamentally safe (if seemingly off to a fast start on the charts.). Not only is The Great Gatsby a tent-pole blockbuster with an above-the-title director and major A-list talent, it’s a grandiose celebration of New York jazz age glamour and excess — which in some ways, »

The Hollywood Reporter is speculating that Heather Morris might not be returning to Glee. Morris hasn’t signed on for the show’s fifth season so maybe she’ll be taking time off to welcome her first child with boyfriend Taylor Hubbell.
Justina Machado (Private Practice, Six Feet Under) will guest star on the ABC Family series The Fosters. Machado will play “Sofia Rivera, the outspoken and extremely protective mother of Mariana Foster's (Cierra Ramirez) best friend, Lexi Rivera (Bianca Santos).”

It's that time of year again when we take a moment to honor our moms. And how great they are, right? Well, here at Dread Central we can turn even the most loving moms into something horrific, and in celebration of Mother's Day, we bring you Horror's 11 Most Memorable Moms!
Read on… and eat your vegetables for chrissake!
Okay, so not all the moms on this list are psychotic killers; some are heroes, and some fall somewhere in between. But they're all great for their own reasons. As usual, we'll start out with some honorable mentions, and we certainly have some remarkable moms to speak about. We'll start with Estelle Collingwood (played by Cynthia Carr) in the original Last House on the Left. Only a mother's love could drive a person to bite a guy's Johnson off as an act of revenge! Another great justice-seeking mother was Kate (played by Vera Farmiga) in Orphan. »

Hermione actor of Harry Potter series switches to the vain and amoral as celebrity-fixated Hollywood gangster
Were she a real person rather than one of the protagonists of the most successful film franchises in history, Hermione Granger would in all likelihood blanch at the latest movie role taken on by Emma Watson.
The 23-year-old actor, who played the bookish Hermione across eight instalments and 11 years, is now the star of Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, a dazed and subtly disturbing tale of real-life burglary, privilege and celebrity which is heading this month for the Cannes film festival.
The picture tells of a gang of teenagers preying on the Hollywood homes of stars such as Paris Hilton (who was singled out for repeat visits), Lindsay Lohan and Orlando Bloom. From these figures they swiped more than $3m (£1.9m) worth of cash and goods using only chutzpah and the internet: once »

London, May 8: Winona Ryder has revealed that she was once told to give up on acting because she wasn't attractive enough.
The 41-year-old told Interview magazine that in the middle of auditioning and mid-sentence, the casting director said, 'Listen kid, you shouldn't be an actress,' the Daily Express reported.
The director, according to the 'Black Swan' star, said that she was not pretty enough and told her to go back to wherever she came from, and go to school.
"I honestly think she thought she was doing me a favour," Ryder insisted.
The actress admitted that if it were not for landing roles in 1988 films,. »

Is there a single actress in Hollywood who hasn't been criticized for her looks?
In a chat with Interview magazine's editor-in-chief Stephen Mooallem, Winona Ryder shared an experience she had as a young actress:
I remember one time in particular. I was in the middle of auditioning, and I was mid-sentence when the casting director said, "Listen, kid. You should not be an actress. You are not pretty enough. You should go back to wherever you came from and you should go to school. You don't have it."
She "wasn't crushed" by the criticism, in large part due to how her parents raised her to think about herself and her appearance. And good thing she didn't listen to that casting director, because she went on to prove herself as a talented performer in films like "Reality Bites" and "Heathers."
More recently, the 41-year-old actress has spoken about the difficulties of aging in Hollywood. »

More changes for the Natalie Portman vehicle hit by multiple walk-outs, with McGregor the fourth actor to be cast in the bad-guy role
Ewan McGregor is set to replace Bradley Cooper as the main villain in the troubled indie western Jane Got a Gun, according to Deadline. Cooper had himself replaced Jude Law in the role, who had earlier replaced Joel Edgerton.
The film, which stars Natalie Portman in the title role of a farmer forced to desperate measures to protect her life and home, has been struggling to hold down a confirmed cast since original director Lynne Ramsay walked away following a dispute with producers in March. Edgerton was originally due to play the villain, but switched to a heroic role after Michael Fassbender stepped out. Law was swiftly recruited to play the bad guy, but dropped out after Ramsay was replaced with Warrior's Gavin O'Connor. The British actor's own replacement, »

Third Contact, Simon Horrocks’ directorial debut, was shot on a miniscule budget showing yet again that films don’t need major studio funding in order to be excellent. The reviews for the film so far have been great, with one even referring to it as a “masterful piece of art.”
The film tells the story of Dr. David Wright, a depressed psychotherapist, who embarks on an obsessive investigation after a second patient takes their own life in mysterious circumstances. Wright sets out to find out who or what is behind those deaths before any more lives are lost.
Horrocks is getting ready to kickoff a crowdfunding campaign in order to give his film the release it deserves. In honour of that upcoming campaign, I had the opportunity to talk to him about the film. We discussed his inspiration, why he’s searching for public funding, and much more.
Check out the full interview below. »
