Jennifer Aniston Helps Pass a New California Bill That Will Finally Give Her the Privacy She Deserves!

31 December 2009 11:01 AM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

What a great belated Christmas present for you, Jen! You’re finally getting the personal space you’ve always wanted come 2010.

Jennifer Aniston, 40, is one of the most famous women in the world, so it’s no wonder that she’s constantly courted by the paparazzi. But Jen, sick and tired of having cameras in her face, decided to take action and brought her case to Assembly Speaker Karen Bass.

Under the new law, if Jen finds out that a photo agency is trying to sell (or a media outlet is trying to buy) pictures or video that violated privacy laws, she’ll be able to file a civil lawsuit.

“It’s become a public safety issue,” Jen told the L.A. Times via WonderWall Dec. 30. “Somebody’s going to die if we don’t do something. There have to be some boundaries,” she added. “When you have children in »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Seven

29 December 2009 7:16 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Mother and Child

Opens: 2010

Cast: Naomi Watts, Annette Bening, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington

Director: Rodrigo Garcia

Summary: A tale of a mother and daughter, separated at birth, who struggle with the damage done by the most important person missing in their lives while a young African-Americn woman deals with an unwanted pregnancy and the adoption process.

Analysis: Scoring rave reviews in Toronto, the $7 million latest effort of Rodrigo Garcia ("Nine Lives," "Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her") once again shows off his skill at weaving multiple narratives together in clever and unexpected ways. At its heart it's an emotional family drama, but Garcia excels with his female characters which makes the involvement of Naomi Watts, Kerry Washington and especially Annette Benning thrilling.

The few criticisms levelled at the film were toward some pacing and credibility issues in the last act, but otherwise praised it for not »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Five

23 December 2009 10:10 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Hippie Hippie Shake

Opens: 2010

Cast: Cillian Murphy, Sienna Miller, Max Minghella, Emma Booth, Lee Ingleby

Director: Beeban Kidron

Summary: Follows the love story of Oz editor Richard Neville and Louise Ferrier. Neville and his cohorts launch the London edition of Oz amidst the 1960s counterculture and are subsequently put on trial for distributing a sexually explicit issue.

Analysis: One of the most troubled productions in Working Title's history, 'Hippie' began development back in 1998 but failed to get beyond script stage both in 1999 and in 2002 when "Elizabeth" helmer Shekhar Kapur was attached to direct. Filming finally got underway late 2007 with director Beeban Kidron in charge and shooting seemed to proceed without issue aside from feminist author Germaine Greer being vehemently unhappy about being depicted on film.

Actually the film scored quite a bit of free press for a skinny dipping scene where full-frontal shots of actress Sienna Miller shooting the sequence »

First Bounty Hunter Trailer Probably Won't Thrill Manohla Dargis

22 December 2009 6:45 AM, PST | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

In an instantly infamous interview last week, Nyt film critic Manohla Dargis excoriated Hollywood for its affronts to women both on-screen and in the audience -- particularly in the realm of romantic comedy. "One, the people making them have no f*cking taste," Dargis said. "Two, they're morons, three they're insulting panderers who think they're making movies for the great unwashed and that's what they want." With that in mind, who's ready for the first trailer for The Bounty Hunter, featuring Jennifer Aniston ensnared by her title-character ex, thrown in a car trunk, and handcuffed to a bed, all to a jaunty pop soundtrack in about 30 seconds flat? »

Info Meme

Leading the news in decisions made in Hollywood that should never have been considered, much less funded, we find out that Columbia Pictures is going to let Phil Lord and Chris Miller direct the big screen adaptaion of the 1980s hit 21 Jump Street that launched Johnny Depp's career and causes Richard Greico to throw a bottle at the television whenever it's mentioned. Don't get me wrong, I watched 21 Jump Street. I also liked Lord and Miller's last project, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. I just don't think any of those things go together in 2012, which is when they're releasing it. Fantasy casting - go!

I live in a moderately small town in West Virginia, so whenever I get to mock another place, it's like Christmas and my birthday rolled into one. Today, we have Laredo, Texas, which has achieved the dubious distinction of being the largest »

Bounty Hunter Trailer Arrives

21 December 2009 11:22 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Ah, the high concept rom com: throwing attractive people together in wacky situations since the dawn of cinema itself (well, since the 30s at least).And now we have a trailer for the latest incarnation - The Bounty Hunter, starring Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston.How does it look? Much like Fool's Gold, or Hitch, two of director Andy Tenant's previous movies, and again finds two sexy actors bickering, scrapping and generally trying to prove they have chemistry together.On their own, Butler and Aniston have done some good work, but on the evidence of this trailer, we're not yet sure they work as a pair. Butler's contending with a slightly awkward American accent and Aniston appears to be falling back on her usual blend of nervy/cute tics.The basic premise of the promo - which snuck out over the weekend - finds Butler's dogged bounty hunter assigned »

'21 Jump Street' Movie to Get 'Cloudy' Directors

21 December 2009 6:48 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Whether you like it or not, a big-screen version of the TV show 21 Jump Street, which starred Johnny Depp's cheekbones, is inexorably making its way through the highways and byways of the studio system. First came the news that Jonah Hill was developing a treatment of it, then the word was out that Hill planned to make it rather R-rated. As he told Complex magazine, "[Sony execs said] they were gonna let me make my kind of movie - an R-rated, insane, Bad-Boys-meets-John Hughes-type movie - and I told them the second they don't, I'm not gonna be involved anymore."

Now Variety is reporting that the guys behind of this summer's tasty animated movie Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs are talking to Columbia Pictures about directing 21 Jump Street. Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who also wrote the screenplay for Meatballs, have worked together since the short-lived TV series Clone High from 2002 to 2003. Mike Bacall, »

• Why yes, we definitely need another contrived romantic comedy starring Jennifer Aniston. Thank you for The Bounty, Hollywood. Looks so fun. • While we're at, we could also use more celebrity fragrances, so it's a good thing Beyoncé is getting into the game. Coming this February: Beyoncé Heat.  Look at the hot ad; don't you just want to smell like that? • Here's a video of Olivia Munn jumping on a trampoline in a bikini for her Maxim cover.

Trailer and Poster for The Bounty Hunter Starring Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler

18 December 2009 12:20 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first trailer and poster for The Bounty Hunter have come online and both have led me to two conclusions: 1) Someone wanted to top the awfulness of The Ugly Truth and B) Gerard Butler should’ve killed his agent a long time ago.  The “high-concept” comedy is about a bounty hunter (Butler) who’s tasked with bringing his ex-wife into custody.  I don’t even need to describe what happens from there because you already know what happens and that’s a bad sign.

You can check out the trailer after the jump along with the poster.  I’ve also included a spruced up version to make the film look more appealing and perhaps reach a wider demographic.

Movie Preview: Jennifer Aniston, Gerard Butler in The Bounty

18 December 2009 10:30 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Ready to see the fruits of all that much-photographed labor of Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler's next foray into romantic comedies, The Bounty? The trailer is here, and most of the plot unfolds in it - Aniston and Butler play exes, with Butler as a bounty hunter whose bounty becomes . . . wait for it . . . yep, Jennifer Aniston. Though it looks utterly predictable (and kind of like a mashup of Out of Sight and Mr. and Mrs. Smith), the stylized violence and believable chemistry between the stars may make it a wild ride. Butler's and Aniston's last attempts at romantic comedy weren't my favorites, but this definitely looks better. To see two good-looking actors working some handcuffs and each other's nerves, just read more. »
