We'd want Kristen Stewart at our table any day. The actress was most delightful while taking the E!Q in 42 this week during a chat about her latest film, Café Society, Woody Allen's new comedy about romance, the movie business and trying to not get ruined by either in 1930s-era Hollywood. The film, in theaters Friday, reunites Stewart with Adventureland and American Ultra co-star Jesse Eisenberg, whose new-to-the-biz assistant Bobby takes a liking to Stewart's Vonnie, the secretary of his power-agent uncle, played by Steve Carell. Knowing the crowd involved, sounds like an opportunity for all sorts of fabulously hyper-literate »

20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for the upcoming comedy Keeping Up with the Joneses. This rousing fall release stars Zach Galifianakis, Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher, and Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot! We also have a number of new photos, with the movie set to hit theaters on October 21. Buckle up, it's going to be a bumpy ride!
An ordinary suburban couple finds it's not easy keeping up with the Joneses, their impossibly gorgeous and ultra-sophisticated new neighbors. Especially when they discover that Mr. and Mrs. "Jones" are covert operatives. Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher star as the next-door neighbors who open their arms to their beautiful new cul-de-sac couple, played by Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot. But they are about to get much more than they ever bargained for.
Superbad and Adventureland director Greg Mottola is back at it with Keeping Up With The Joneses, which pits Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher against new neighbors Gal Gadot and Jon Hamm. Ahead of a release this fall, 20th Century Fox have now released the first trailer.
The preview promises an action-comedy blend akin to Pineapple Express or Knight and Day by way of Neighbors, with slapstick comedy and meek one-liners from Galifianakis accompanying the flying bullets and explosions. Hopefully a comedy bright spot during the fall awards season, see the trailer below.
An ordinary suburban couple (Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher) finds it’s not easy keeping up with the Joneses (Jon Hamm, Gal Gadot) – their impossibly gorgeous and ultra-sophisticated new neighbors – especially when they discover that Mr. and Mrs. “Jones” are covert operatives.
Keeping Up With The Joneses hits U.S. theaters October 21st.

Actor Logan Marshall-Green (Prometheus, The Invitation, Cinemax series Quarry) may be signing on as another potential villain to Marvel and Sony’s upcoming Spider-man: Homecoming. Meanwhile, Martin Starr (Silicon Valley series, Adventureland) has officially joined the cast in an as yet unknown role.
The movie already has Michael Keaton lined up to play the villain Vulture against Tom Holland as Spider-Man. Last week Donald Glover (TV show Community, The Martian) also signed on to the movie, which also includes Zendaya in an undisclosed female leading role and Marisa Tomei reprising her role (last seen in Captain America: Civil War) as Aunt May. Jon Watts will be directing the movie, carving out Spider-Man’s place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a young man still in high school and fairly new to his powers.
As Spider-man: Homecoming’s cast fills out it will be interesting to see who these actors will be playing. »

Sony and Marvel Studios’ offspring, Spider-Man: Homecoming, is already putting together a weighty cast, including the likes of superhero veterans Robert Downey Jr, and Michael Keaton, Oscar winner Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and Community funnyman Donald Glover in an unnamed role.
There are no deals on who Starr will be portraying in the film. The 33-year-old actor is best known for turns in the outstanding Freaks And Geeks and Party Down, and smaller roles on the big screen in This Is The End, Superbad, and Adventureland.

Intruders arrives on Bluray, DVD and digital platforms this week. The film screened at last year’s Frightfest under the name Shut In and tells the story of a young agoraphobic woman, Anna, who finds herself under siege by a group of burglars. Playing one of the intruders is American actor Martin Starr. He plays Perry, who is definitely the most dastardly of the invaders as he has a very interesting way of trying to keep Anna in check.
Starr started his career in the wonderful, but sadly short-lived television show Freaks and Geeks as Bill Haverchuck. He’s since gone on to star in movies Superbad, This is the End, Veronica Mars and Adventureland, but is most recognisable at the moment for his role on HBO’s Silicon Valley. »

It's fair to say that Kristen Stewart has been straining mightily to turn over a new leaf in her career, and in some sense, she already has: in the years since she finished her run as the star of the critically-reviled but wildly-popular Twilight series, she's managed to transform into one the critical community's favorite stars. Look no further than the reviews out of Cannes for Stewart's performance in Olivier Assayas's uncategorizable Personal Shopper, in which the actress stars as Maureen, an American living in Paris who pays the bills by working as an assistant to a demanding French model/actress (Nora von Waldstätten). She also happens to be a psychic medium who is literally and figuratively haunted by the spirit of her late twin brother, who died in the French capital shortly before the events of the movie begin to unfurl.

Cafe Society review
Woody Allen gets the privilege of opening this year’s Cannes Film Festival, an honour which has fallen to his feet twice before with Hollywood Ending in 2002, and the superb Midnight In Paris in 2011. Allen returns to Hollywood for his 2016 entry Café Society, which also screens out-of-competition; his fourteenth film to do so.
Jesse Eisenberg leads the cast as Bobby, a native New Yorker who, after growing tired of his father’s jewelry trade in the Big Apple, heads to Hollywood in the 1930s to bag a job with his Uncle Phil (Steve Carell), one of Hollywood’s top agents. »

When it comes to fame, Woody Allen believes that celebrities should be grateful for the doors that it opens. “There are great upsides to it and great downsides to it,” Allen said at the opening press conference of the 69th annual Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday afternoon. “My opinion after years in the spotlight is that the perks far outweigh the downsides. Celebrities often kvetch about the lack of privacy and being bothered by the paparazzi, and these are not life-threatening problems. They get enormous advantages as they go through life.”
Allen held court in the South of France just before the evening premiere of his comedy “Café Society,” set in 1930s Hollywood. The stars of his movie — Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg and Blake Lively — sat by his side, but only occasionally interjected. Steve Carell, who plays an agent in the film, didn’t make the trek to Cannes this year. »

Kristen Stewart arrives at a French restaurant in Los Feliz without an entourage — no publicist, no bodyguard. She’s incognito, with a hat pulled low on her head, hands in her pockets, bare arms dressed with tattoos. Looking like any other hipster, she greets the waiter with a mellow “What’s up, dude?” (“dude” and “f—k” are her two favorite words) and orders a glass of champagne with a cup of ice. As she reflects on her life, she takes periodic sips, letting the cubes, one by one, melt into the fizz.
At only 26, Stewart is in the middle of reinventing her career. After catapulting to fame at 17 in the young-adult vampire franchise “Twilight,” she couldn’t leave her house without flashbulbs trailing her every step. The public became obsessed with her relationship with her then-boyfriend (and co-star) Robert Pattinson, and she topped every studio’s wish list for it-girl parts. »

A new Woody Allen film is usually one of the highlights of any year.
This time he reunites Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart (who have previously co-starred in Adventureland andAmerican Ultra), with Eisenberg's character moving to Hollywood in the 1930s, and of course, falling for the gorgeous, but taken Stewart.
The film boasts an impressive cast, as every Allen film does, including Steve Carell, Blake Lively, Parker Posey,Corey Stoll, and Judy Davis. Following Eisenberg as he meets the sophisticated and successful visitors of the café society that was a signature for the time period, this looks like another potential classic from Woody Allen.

Deadpool hits theaters Friday, Feb. 12, Ryan Reynolds stars in it, and fans are hotly anticipating the funny, raunchy superhero movie. All these things easily couldn't have happened - and that's worth talking about. Here's the thing about Deadpool, as a comic book character: He's not exactly what most people would imagine when they think about the main character in a superhero movie. At best, Deadpool, a.k.a. Wade Wilson, is an anti-hero; he's a wise-cracking Bugs Bunny of a guy, even when he's running around killing people. He's a little unhinged, he's a little sexually fluid, and perhaps strangest of all, »

By most accounts, Deadpool shouldn't be a movie that's about to hit theaters (Friday, Feb. 12), and it's a surprise to some that Ryan Reynolds is starring in it. But he is, and it's hotly anticipated, and that's worth talking about.

The eleventh entry in an on-going series of audiovisual essays by Cristina Álvarez López and Adrian Martin. Greg Mottola's Adventureland (2009) is now playing in the United States through February 29.Few subjects divide people more sharply and ferociously than respective tastes in music. We build our identities, our system of values, even our world-views, through the music we choose to love and cultivate, whether as players or listeners—and we project our musical distastes onto a screen (or a variety of screens) constituting those monstrous Others from which we differentiate and dissociate ourselves.Popular movies have a lot to do with propagating this fascinating but treacherous and unstable cultural process. Especially teen movies, which involve themselves with the vagaries of pop, rock, and other musical styles more extensively and intimately than most genres—particularly at the level of ‘sampling,’ of the selection of pre-existing tracks for the film soundtrack (and, »

Continuing to feed off of last week’s Academy Award nomination announcement (as well as yesterday’s piece on the snubs found within those nominations, in one or two cases), today I want to look at who happens to be most due a nod at this point. An Oscar nom is certainly no easy achievement, but you can usually look around at the actors and actresses who have never been nominated and find at least one missed opportunity on the part of the Academy. As such, today I’m again putting out a list of who deserves a nomination the most, updated since certain contenders like Jennifer Jason Leigh finally have their citation… Here now are ten actors or actresses overdue for an Oscar nomination: 10. Zoe Kazan – Anyone who doesn’t consider Kazan to be overdue for a citation just isn’t paying attention. Look at The Exploding Girl or »
