The Easy A actress was spotted out and about with her parents Lynn and Rick Saturday in Thousand Oaks Calif., walking the family's dogs through the neighborhood. Bynes rocked a Captain America sweatshirt, jeans and a "Twerk Team" baseball cap for the occasion, walking one of the pups as her mom and dad followed behind her.

It landed in public consciousness in book form and then the film format via the perfect fall film festival trifecta of Venice, Telluride and Tiff, and yet despite some favorable reviews, Gia Coppola’s debut film has finally landed a distribution deal with the Tribeca Film folks. Palo Alto will be released in Spring of 2014.
Gist: Palo Alto weaves together three stories of teenage lust, boredom, and self-destruction: shy, sensitive April (Emma Roberts), torn between an illicit flirtation with her soccer coach (James Franco) and an unrequited crush on sweet stoner Teddy (Jack Kilmer); Emily (Zoe Levin), who offers sexual favors to any boy to cross her path; and the increasingly dangerous exploits of Teddy and his best friend Fred (Nat Wolff), whose behavior may or may not be sociopathic. One of the strongest American directorial debuts of the past decade, Coppola’s film has a palpable sense of time and place, »

If there’s one thing you can always count on Two and a Half Men for, it’s the casting of incredibly attractive women. I won’t ever be compelled to sit down and watch a half hour of Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher, but I can be tempted by the bodacious curves of Aly Michalka, the latest gorgeous woman to grace the set of CBS’s long-running comedy. The only difference between Michalka’s casting and any other actress is she’s going to have no romantic entanglements with any of the titular men. Instead, she’s going to be a point of affection for newcomer Amber Tamblyn.
When Angus T. Jones dropped from series regular status, Tamblyn was brought in fill in the void as the deceased Charlie’s previously unknown daughter. She also happens to be a lesbian and just as womanizing as her absent father. When Michalka appears on the show, »

Since its announcement, there has been no end to the speculation as to which DC Universe characters would be joining Henry Cavill’s Superman and Ben Affleck’s Batfleck in Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel sequel Batman Vs Superman. Wonder Woman in particular has been heavily rumoured and, when asked about her appearance last month, Warner Bros’ Greg Silverman avoided a direct answer.
The other character everyone’s been talking about is Nightwing, the post-Robin alter-ego of Batman’s once-sidekick Dick Grayson. The inclusion of this character fits Snyder’s vision of an older and weary Batman, having already ended his partnership with Robin.
Earlier this month it was revealed that Adam Driver (Girls) was the frontrunner to get the part and, shortly after, Penn Badgely (Easy A) and Ezra Miller (The Perks Of Being A Wallflower) were also announced as potential contenders. It seems now, however, that all »

I'm not quite sure what I was expecting here, actually I was expecting something a little closer to the Carol Burnett representation of Miss Hanningan but this is a new version-- a modern version. Thanks to director Will Gluck (Easy A, Friends With Benefits) we have our first look at Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan. Then thanks to the paparazzi we have a photo of Diaz on set in full costume. At first I thought it was Miley Cyrus or a new Jennifer Lopez video. It is neither one of these »

Kevin Smith hosted a Yahoo! Q&A session over the weekend, promoting the release of Man of Steel on DVD and Blu-ray (watch it below) and has since made a few comments on his regular podcast (via Coming Soon) regarding the coming Batman vs. Superman sequel and his praise for the new Batsuit that will be worn by Ben Affleck as Batman is garnering the most attention. "I saw the Batman costume. More than that I saw a picture of Ben Affleck in the costume. Now, I don't want to give anything away 'cause that is up to them and stuff, but I am going to say this, I instantly bear hugged him (Snyder). You have not seen this costume in a movie on film before, and for a comic book fan it was mind bending. I was like 'Get out of here, only you have enough power to pull this off. »

Yesterday came word that "Girls" star Adam Driver is the front runner for the role, one of five actors said to be up for the part of Bruce Wayne's estranged ex-sidekick. Now, Superhero Movies News claims they have learned of two more - Ezra Miller and Penn Badgley.
Miller came to notice thanks to two very different portrayals of a high school student - a chilling psychopath in "We Need To Talk About Kevin" and a living out loud gay teen in "The Perks of Being A Wallflower". Both performances scored great acclaim. »

Yesterday we brought you details of the first talent linked to the sidekick character of Nightwing in Zack Snyder’s still-untitled Man Of Steel sequel (currently going by Batman Vs. Superman), which will pit Henry Cavill’s Kal-El against Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight. If you weren’t taken with cult Girls actor Adam Driver a serious contender for the role of Dick Grayson in the forthcoming blockbuster, we’ve another couple of names vying for the part of the weary Caped Crusader’s younger crime-fighting partner.
27 year-old rising actor Penn Badgely (Margin Call, Easy A) and the blossoming, brooding 21 year-old Ezra Miller (The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, We Neen To Talk About Kevin) are also being eyed by Snyder as potential contenders for the role of an upgraded “Robin”.

It was no surprise to learn during this year's Oscars that Stone and Jennifer Lawrence are pals; the pair share a similar down-to-earth appeal and uncanny ability to make us want to be their Bff.
As Stone celebrates her 25th birthday, Digital Spy looks back on 9 of her most charming moments.
'Pocketful of Sunshine' (Easy A, 2010)
While she'd previously stood out as the love interest to Superbad and Zombieland's various incarnations of nerd, Stone's breakout role was in Will Gluck's perfectly pitched high school comedy Easy A. Her wry, sharp-tongued Olive is both utterly charming and the kind of convincing, three-dimensional teenage girl that has become rare in the genre, and this iconic moment sums up everything we've come to love about Stone. »

The upcoming remake of Annie has commenced filming and although very little information has been forthcoming, star Jamie Foxx (The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Django Unchained) has revealed his main inspiration for his role as Benjamin Stacks, a mobile phone module running for New York mayor.
"To be honest with you, I'm letting the cat out the bag just a little bit," states Foxx. "I'm sort of mirroring Puffy a little bit." Now, I'm unsure whether a remake of Annie is entirely necessary but if Foxx is to mirror P Diddy, maybe it will be a little bit of fun.
Annie, a remake of the 1982 musical, will see Foxx joined by Cameron Diaz (Knight and Day, The Counselor), Rose Byrne (Insidious, X-Men: First Class), Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire, Blue Jasmine), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Lost, Thor: The Dark World) and Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) as Annie.

Although The Amazing Spider-Man was a slightly underwhelming experience, the CGI and design were incredibly impressive at times. Marvel has evidently picked up on this and has announced The Amazing Spider-Man: The Art of the Movie for release in January.
It's strange that they didn't wait for the release of the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 but it certainly builds a bridge between the first and second movies. This looks like a valuable piece of merchandise for any loyal Spider-Man fans out there.
And, importantly, could it be that with Marvel releasing this book - the first 'Art of the Movie' not to focus on a Marvel Studios property - a merger of the brands between Sony and Marvel is on the cards?

This time last year, director James Ponsoldt released Smashed, a feature focusing on the turbulent relationship between two young alcoholics, and it’s a theme he’s explored once again, this time in The Spectacular Now. However his latest offering is a far more polished and poignant piece of cinema.
Miles Teller plays Sutter, a confident, self-assured high school student who cares more about partying than he does about studying – never to be seen without his trusty hip flask. However his nonchalant philosophy towards life takes a dramatic change when he takes a liking to Aimee (Shailene Woodley), a far more innocent, and less popular classmate. Though initially he is trying to make his ex-girlfriend (Brie Larson) jealous, he soon develops feelings for his new crush, though his influence over her may just be more damaging that he’d like to believe.
Though going back a few years from his protagonists in Smashed, »
